Why is it a bad sign?

I always viewed it as, "Wow, this MUD is stable as hell."

I think this is a good idea. Sure, not many people would use them but they are
"Guilds" and therefore probably send members on missions quite a bit.

I'm sure the dev team has their plates full already but it would be
a nice touch.

Aardwolf represents a niche of gaming.

There are a few MUDs that are as complex as this one but they are very
different and cater to different needs.

Aardwolf will probably exist for a few more decades. It is free, it is
different, and, most importantly, free to play.

If the economy tanks, then Aardwolf will get more players, not less.

I play because it's a legitimate MMO I can play on the phone. I can progress
and chat with my friends while in line at the grocery store, bank, breaks
at work... Etc.

Aardwolf is here to stay.

The clan system is very active.

Look for people you hold in high esteem and join their clans.

There is very little clan vs clan drama publicly.

But when clan wars start, it is very subtle but very obvious. I personally wish
there was more drama about it because it'd make it more fun, but whatever.

I read the original post as a joke.

But your post made me agree that "complete destruction" could be
temporary as in the equipment would be nullified for the duration of the spell.

The targeted eq should be random.

I would have professions stay the same level regardless of Remort/tier.

Lower levels would require little experience to level but higher levels would
require much more... Level 1 would be 1k TNL and 201 90mil. Something like
that.

A good idea at the base.

But a slight increase wouldn't make up for constant killing.

Constant killing at a rare pop would supercede killing mobs randomly during
rare.

If you reverse it, then farmers would just rotate their cattle.

It happens in every MMO.

Rare items would pop all the time with your logic.

Rare mobs increase by 3%? The base is way less than 1.

The point of rare is to be rare. Red Kais are still rare as hell, even
with constant farming. I don't see an issue.

I did. I just read PK situations. All the senior players you've killed have
had significant disadvantages against you.

Including heavy level check. Come on. Your idea basically excludes anybody with
less than 2000 hours from competitive play.

Stop being a fool.

Because it's a SIGNIFICANT part of game balancing. This game's tier system

Am I the only one who thinks this is OP when it comes to PvE?

If level check didn't matter, then level 1 T9 could breeze monstrously through
redos. 300exp per kill for DAYS if level check wasn't an issue.

Come on, man. Level check is part of the game. It gives noobs a shot when
high tier OR high instinct low tier decide to hammer on noobs.

High tiers aren't the only problem.

There's a toggle in options to only display loot of a certain quality.
You can even choose to only loot super rare legendary items if you want.

It'd be a sweet option here too!

It does affect me. Why would new people want to keep playing Aard if they don't
gain power over the tiers? They would lose power because how many people
get that much instinct per tier, especially T0?

No incentive to keep playing.

Then there is less satisfaction to gain tiers. I enjoyed getting more powerful
over the tiers. This would make it less fun. More equal, but less fun for
everybody. It's like playing a game with cheat mode activated.

50 in every instinct at T0? No thank you.

However... the exp bonus for all Superheros should be 10% regardless of tier.

Pupping at T0 with 100% bonus exp is just too much haha.

I kind of agree with some sort of tier restriction. I'm a T8 and I almost
never get OPK'd anymore. Hopefully this note changes that. The only person
who comes for me is Nao and that's like once a week.

It sad really because I see low Tiers slaughtered all the time in my
level range but the killers never come for me. I even forget to recall before
going AFK and I'm always safe and sound when I return. It was night and day
difference when I hit T5. I guess that's the magic tier.

Maybe people will come for me now. Yay!
