  1. I played PWI back when it first released in English. I think I even won one of their guide writing competitions. The game was real fun until it went pretty hardcore P2W after a couple years. I then moved on to another game by them, Forsaken World. That one was also real fun, until it too went hardcore P2W. I don't have much faith that PWM will be F2P friendly in the long-term. For those unfamiliar with PWE (Perfect World Entertainment, the NA company) and want perspective on what I'm calling P2W: in PWI there exists a set of weapons known as Warsoul weapons. It is theoretically possible to farm one completely F2P. However, it requires a full party to do so and it was estimated that it would take 10~20 years to farm just 1 weapon with the cooperation of 6 people. Alternatively, you can P2W one for the low low cost of roughly 20,000 US dollars. Note that I say roughly, as there was an RNG element to crafting the parts, meaning it could take more or less than that. Both PWG (parent Chinese company) and PWE are pretty well known for making their games F2P friendly early on to hook players and then moving towards a very P2W model. So the take away from that is if you want to play this game, right now will be the best time to do so but don't be surprised when the P2W starts to roll in.
  2. I might be a little late for gaming tonight. Probably about an hour or so later than usual. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  3. Gonna piggyback off this to add more information based on my understanding. My understanding is that a wifi router will always have slightly higher ping due to the error checking they perform but being closer to the router and have a direct LOS between your router and your transceiver will help a lot with reducing the latency. Most of the latency occurs due to resolving CRC errors due to data corruption in transit. Data corruption will occur due to changes in transmission media (air->wall->air), and from signal degradation which increases the further you are. Signal degradation is a twofold problem for higher bandwidth wifi routers as higher frequencies are necessary to achieve these higher bandwidths and higher frequency signals will degrade more rapidly with distance travalled. The secondary factor that will also always cause latency is that the wifi router is actually stuck processing the same information multiple times. This isn't due to a flaw in the design of the router but the fact that the signal from your transceiver will echo if you're in a closed space and/or if there are objects around you. This echo, will still reach the router and even though it is often too degraded to make it past CRC it will still eat resources to check it. The off-chance that it does still pass CRC means that routers must also further tack on checks to make sure that not only is this packet valid, but whether the router has already seen this packet. Moving closer to the router and insuring there's no obstruction between your card and the router will go leagues to making it so that packets don't need to be resent. Unfortunately, there's little that can be done about the time it takes to perform CRC or the resources that need to be dedicated processing echos so there will always be more latency than with a corded connection.
  4. Ah yes, my bad there was an argument section that was soft-deleted. We don't ever hard-delete anything from the forums so your posts are actually still on the forums they've just been moved to catch-all restricted board called "Trash Can." My bad on that, I completely forgot that the argument post chain had been removed from this thread.
  5. So @GhostDog(OD). You went on a tirade about how your vote was removed purely due to favoritism. You went further to state that you did not know why is was removed. Here, however, we see that you were in fact given the reason for why your vote was removed and told that you are more than welcome to re-post your vote after altering it to be within voting guidelines. The section of your vote outside of the guidelines pertained to a section in which you falsely accused a member of something that was actually done by another member. It sounds like this was a situation that you should have been able to address and fix yourself without this ever needing to be public. If you truly have grievances with Beer outside of a misplacement of deeds done then you should have had to no problems simply altering the vote to remove the misplaced accusation. However, instead you came here claiming that your vote was removed due to favoritism. Instead you came here claiming that you had no idea why it had been removed. We won't punish people for raising concerns over leadership nor their choices. We will, however, punish them for making unnecessary public shows of things if they are higher ranked. We will also punish people that alter the truth in an attempt to stir the pot not because of legitimate concerns but because of a personal vendetta against the leadership or a member. If it is the case that you were told the reasons for why your vote was illegitimate, rather than being uninformed as you stated here, then I advise you to publicly state your mistake. If this is not the case and you would like to further escalate this by reaffirming your accusation that Triny is abusing her power and is instead lying in her post here then you are free to do so. However, know that if you do decide to escalate it further and it's found that your accusations are unfounded then a punishment may actually be in order at that point. My question to you @GhostDog(OD) is this. Are you sure your views of ODG's leadership are truly in-line with reality?
  6. What I love is the adamant belief that his post will be deleted when not a single post he has ever put in this thread has been deleted. I have pretty good faith that the vote was removed for a good reason so I'd like to call on those that are informed of the reason for the removal to post it here publicly along with any evidence that can be disclosed. If GhostDog wants to turn his vote into a public spectacle then I think it should be, especially since GhostDog is such a strong advocate of transparency and learning by having mistakes be public.
  7. I'm gonna be honest here, GhostDog. I can tell that you have a very real interest in bettering the clan. I can further tell that you see issues in the way the clan is run. However, I think you have fallen in to confirmation bias. You have already decided how the clan works and what problems it has. When presented with evidence of how the clan is run, you attempt to align it with your view instead of align your view with the evidence. You accuse the administration of providing poor answers and this thread of seeking validation. However, based on your reactions to the answers you have received it is clear that your questions weren't asked to find the truth but to find affirmation that your current view of administration is correct. The answers you have received were not in line with your view. Presented with this, you either attempt to find an interpretation that brings it in line or just drop it altogether saying that it was pointless to ask because we'll never change. None of this is how discovery is done. You don't seek the truth to affirm a view, you seek the truth to find the truth and only the truth. If you are unwilling to see administration in any other way than the way you have unilaterally decided it is, then yes this thread is pointless for you. If you refuse to earnestly and charitably take our answers to your questions to heart and use it to reevaluate your view of administration, then both of our times are being wasted.
  8. You make it sounds as if we have some power of coercion that forces people that have joined ODG to stay in ODG. People are more than welcome to come and go as they please. However, the platforms of ODG are maintained, and where applicable are paid for, by administration for the benefit of ODG and not other communities. For that reason, we do not allow advertising of other communities on our platforms that are explicitly trying to pull members away from ODG. I would argue that comparing ODG membership to job employment is false equivalency. A job does have a power of coercion that keeps you there. This power is called a wage--money. If whispers of layoffs is spreading, it weakens that power of coercion and therefore employees begin seeking other opportunities. (The same happens if an employee is approached by a recruiter promising higher wages.) ODG has no such power. We are a community that you join to socialize and spend leisure time.
  9. "Edited 20 hours ago by Triny(OD) Do not recruit here" There is a reason given just below the byline for the edit on Hectic's post.
  10. I saw the original post prior to editing. Triny removed advertising that Hectic had put into his resignation. The advertising was to the effect of trying to pull members from OD to another gaming community.
  11. Complete misunderstanding on my part. I apologize for that.
  12. Ray has since brought to my attention that the PM refers to a promotion and not the eval. Disregard this. Given that this is the only post that Purplez made on your eval, I fail to see how the PM you have posted directly contradicts it. It seems to me like you view the world as binary--black and white with minimal, or no, shades of grey. Someone is either on your side or against you. Purplez's PM is clearly meant to show she is still on your side while her post on your eval is clearly meant to show that you do have something you need to work on. However, no where do these seemingly antithetical stances actually contradict each other. Her PM states that she feels you deserve a promotion and that you do a lot for it. Her post stats that you are an active member and both contribute to and participate heavily in the D2 division and the forums. However, her post says that you can, at times, be argumentative and hostile. Her PM echos this by saying "...but at times your comments have been difficult." Her PM states the objective of her post is not to be confrontation. The end of her post presents an opportunity for these critiques to be turned around in a positive light by you. Her PM is in no ways at odds with her post on your eval. I would say that you truly feel that it is then I advise that, instead of lashing out at administration, perhaps some internal reflection is necessary instead. This post has not been made with any hope to convince you of anything nor to try and prevent your resignation. I simply don't like watching false statements like this being thrown around.
  13. Updated Sheet Failstacking sheets are likely to evolve over the next few weeks as more extensive testing is done. This new sheet is from this reddit post. Important takeaways: (1) failstacks have both softcaps and hardcaps. For armor and weapons, there is a softcap at 70% chance to succeed and a hardcap at 90%. Accessories are also hardcapped at 90% but it appears that the softcaps change (become lower) as the accessory becomes further enhanced. (2) White-grade gear (reblath armor, militia weapons) have the same rates as boss gear. Green gear, when set to durable enhance and when enhancing to +15-and-beyond also has the same rates as boss gear but for anything below that, even on durable, green-grade gear has a higher chance to succeed than both boss gear and white-grade gear.
  14. For a T8 horse you want Sprint, Drift, Instant Accel, and S: Instant Accel. From there it splits based on whether you want just a T8 or plan on going for a T9 (Dream) horse. If you plan on just staying at T8 (most players) then you want a high speed stat as well. High qualifies as somewhere between 155-160% speed though ideally you want 160%+ (these very rarely get listed on the horse market). If you plan on going for T9 then speed stat isn't important as it'll get reset to level 1 once it becomes a T9 horse but to go for a T9 horse you need a T8 Courser (denoted by a gold horse icon when viewing stats). It should be noted that going for T9 is a very late-game goal as it'll probably cost several billions of silver to obtain and quite the time investment. You don't want caution as a skill. Buying a horse with caution is fine just make sure to buy a skill deletion coupon from the loyalty shop and remove it.
  15. My guess is yes, these are the same rates as on the live server. Based on the limited testing I have done and seen, it appears that, yes, these are the same rates we have on the live servers. Live or not, these rates are subject to change as you and I both know that the devs have no qualms with changing enhancement rates on the fly on the live server.
