  • "Either though spend time /lfg or you get Zerged from level 1 on up." Every time I participated in the event I was getting invite spammed within a minute or less of logging in. This was as a low level Valk. I have issues with the event, but bei…

  • When I first read about this event, I completely missed that levels 10-50 are all stuffed into the same BG. As someone who can't get in every day, sometimes can't get in multiple days in a row, my ability to participate in this event is pretty much …
  • I've seen a lot of criticism for this event, but I'll throw out my support as someone who typically only posts to whine. Many vets may be able to reach RR5 far faster than 10 days, but the gated progress will hopefully keep people on more even footi…
  • Unless it's changed since, the official ruling is 1 EC account per user. But BS isn't going to scrutinize each and every group trying to find out if each account is being managed by a different person. Don't be a nuisance and you should be fine. …
  • There is a lot of low effort stuff that that Broadsword could do to make a better impression for new and returning players, but for some reason there is seemingly zero drive to get it done. These discussion tend to focus solely on the state of RvR, …

  • You could tell it's a joke from the bit about new content releasing weekly.

  • Sword, along with Axe and Hammer, generally compare worse to other realms' 2handed lines because they are, in fact, basic 1handed weapon lines and not 2handed lines. Mid getting free 2handers in their 1handed lines is its specialty, not its weakness…
  • DAOC was made specifically because of the success they found with a previous 3 way pvp game of theirs called Darkness Falls. And, yes, I'm still curious about BS's plans and progress regarding Catacombs. This thread was full of people talking abo…

  • Clearly the answer is to offer a sub cost discount equal to the highest population bonus being granted to your realm during the time period in which you were active active in RvR. If you're gaining RPs during a period where your realm received a 50%…
  • Leveling is pretty quick and painless, which is why you'll find almost no sub-30s running around. Follow the new player quests and you'll hit ~35 in no time, at which point you can level through the battlegrounds starting with Molvik.
  • No one's ignoring or forgetting the flaws of classic, which is why pretty much everyone is suggesting common sense QoL changes. And bringing up the official "classic" server, which was classic in name only, is incredibly disingenuous. They were "no…
  • Assuming we do see the classic server retain the idea of purchasing top tier gear through BP or some other currency (whether it's bountycrafting, purchasing it straight from a merchant, or whatever other method is gone with), I'd like to see the con…
  • Temporarily vanishing enemies/pets/players/NPCs has been an ongoing issue for a long time and can happen in both PvE and PvP zones. It's a connection issue that can be caused by your ISP, a bad router, your firewall, ect.
  • Even ingame info is outdated. The character creation screen still claims that Necromancers perform all of their actions through their pet. The ingame tutorial quest where you talk to your trainer and they give you a description of each of your class…

  • I'm really curious what, if any, aspects of live they're considering for the classic server for the sake of QoL/balance. How would people feel about the classic/SI server having a live style Bountycrafting that offers all of the best available ge…

  • I've never heard of any studio asking the community to help code their game, and it seems largely unnecessary. BS has had no problems making extensive changes to the game over time, the issue is how often they put significant time and effort into ch…
  • BS seems afraid of allowing even a small handful of EC players to enjoy the game without spending any money, apparently not realizing that even a non-paying player is still valuable for a game with a population this low. People are more likely in ge…
  • I doubt I have much to add to the EC discussion that hasn't already been said to death, but here's a relatively small complaint I can make. What was the thought process behind buffing the King's Armor set (presumably to help new and returning pla…
