Last time I did the epic in a 2-man group. I noticed the mobs had huge
HP and it took forever to grind them down. I don't want want to repeat
it in a small group again, I would now be looking for 4+ man group. The bigger
the group, the better.
 
Very interesting dynamics: this can be done solo, but you really really
want a big group. I think this is great.

Players get epic equipment. Noreown flag was removed from epic equipment.
It was a mistake, but cannot be undone now.
 
Those players will sell the eq (as intended by removal of noreown) and they
want QP as payment.
 
Pick your poison:
1. Rauction QP transfers
2. Donations
 
(1) is inconvenient so (2) is preferred. But (2) looks really bad for all the
new people who read forsale board. It would be better for everyone if
players donated in their own name and then had the ability to transfer QP.

The current epic reward system has extremely bad undesired consequences.
 
Quick and easy fixes:
 
1. Remove run limits for all icefall equipment.
2. Fix Icefall 2 epic: make it either difficult and doable with small group
or easy and meant for big AFK group.
3. Remove rank system for Inferno and Genie. Newbies would get the same
random rewards as veteran players. No harm in that.

My mushclient has been freezing forever. I tracked it down to sound triggers,
especially during bad disk IO. But not much could be done as I need my sound
triggers! It was giving me pain for years.
 
I have nore removed all sound triggers and use lua's plugin

Those rooms are not 100% success traps, but relative to normal game rooms they
are already extremely hard to get out of. Adding even 0.2 s lag would remove
the need for flank/web/sloth making the PK too simple.
 
Bonjours an pumpkins have died in those rooms, seems balanced to me.

Righteous anger is weaker than soldier's precision but in addition
the duration is really really short and cooldown is too long.
 
Reducing cooldown would allow to cast it again after death on same 15 minute

The 130 run limit really discourages people who have 0-100 runs or 131+ runs.
It was supposed to be an encouraging and motivational thing, but history has
shown that it acts as discouragement.

I think historically starburst was a weak spell, but then was redone
to have tier benefits and boosted up. Never got added to eq-illegalspells.
 
But if you ban starburst, then there are high damage
pmage spells left for superheroes. Perhaps a better option would be
to nerf brandish like hammerswing was nerfed, then the spells don't
really matter.

From my experience, quaffing trivia spellup potion (+140 HR) doesn't increase
hit percentage to pupping mobs. So is HR totally useless?
 
I think it would be nice if hitroll reduced misses from level check.

Icefall balloons: the way forward

I have been assigned the reponsibility of taking care of Icefall balloon
distribution.
 
I hate the whole centralized mess and the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet does
not reflect the realities of today's Icefall situation, in particular IF2,
decreasing runner numbers and now reownable eq. The spreadsheet worked well
when Icefall was fresh, but now it's an ugly beast that needs to die.
 
What I want to do is unwind the whole centralized mess into a more
decentralized solution in a reasonably fair way.
 
My suggestion is that we allow random distribution of all new balloons,
as the area is coded. Simple solution for new balloons and would work
well enough. Just let the balloons be freely tradeable between players.
 
What to do with old balloons?
 
Balloon inventory:
(15) (K)(M)(G)(H) Shadow's red balloon birthday present (200)
( 6) (K)(M)(G)(H) Shadow's yellow balloon birthday present (200)
( 4) (K)(M)(G)(H) Shadow's green balloon birthday present (200)
( 4) (K)(M)(G)(H) Shadow's blue balloon birthday present (200)
( 2) (K)(M)(G)(H) Shadow's magenta balloon birthday present (200)
( 6) (K)(M)(G)(H) Shade's midnight balloon birthday present (200)
 
Spreadsheet: https://tinyurl.com/z9nraez
 
Active people
(arbitrary limit of myrank  6 yearly, more than 110 quests = 2 per day)
who are next on the spreadsheet list get the old balloons:

The reward / effort ratio for IF2 is lower than IF1, no doubt about that.
But not because of low rewards, it's because of the high difficulty.
IF2 is just too long and too difficult. Even if you increase the reward
to 50 points, IF2 will still be broken.
 
I think much better solution would be to allow it to run with
smaller groups (~15) and make the runs shorter.
 
Oh and remove run count limit on eq, that's not helping. With the
current system, new people will never buy IF2 eq.

Valid critisism to my original note: Icefall run count limits force
players to buy weapons and utility items. Thanks for the replies!
 
I think people will buy those items for social aspect alone. Just
to be strong, useful and important. There would also be no harm to make the
items a bit cheaper, as the run rewards have decreased (new hard days
vs extreme old days, newbies don't get rings).

Reown and epic rewards
Note #36625
posted on Ideas
Thursday, January 26, 2017 @ 13:18
 
Unintended dynamics have arisen after the recent removal of noreown flag
from epic equipment.
 
Old Icefall and Inferno runners will now be selling extremely rare equipment
pieces for profit.
 
Meanwhile, due to the Icefall run count limits and Inferno leveling system,
new runners who are just starting will not receive any equipment for years.
If you are a new runner just starting Icefall/Inferno, then your only option
is to buy equipment from the old runners.
 
Solutions:
 
For Icefall, remove the run count requirement for all items. The items cost
lots of points, there's no harm if a newbie can buy an item each 30th
run, vs forcing them to grind for 75/130 runs without any rewards.
The run count requirements never provided any benefit to begin with,
even with noreown in place.
 
For Inferno, remove the leveling system. Make the droprates the same
regardless for run count. Now that the eq is reownable, old playres should
not have the advantage over new players.
 
Genie follows the same reward structure as Inferno, therefore the leveling
system should also be removed or else old players will soon be unfairly
benefiting (case in point: forsale note "Geniewish rank3 ear forsale").

Is Icefall equipment reownable?
 
If it is, then around 16 priviledged people can buy Icefall 2 pieces
for resale, but other players cannot buy it for their personal use with
the points they have earned or will earn in the future.
 
There shouldn't be a run count requirement for purchasing from the shop.

What's up with Icefall 2?

It will soon be 4 months that the epic is impossible to run, because
the difficulty is too high relative to the usual strength of the group.
 
Normally it wouldn't a problem that an epic is not being run,
however a handful of players have received the extremely powerful rewards
from Icefall 2 and the remaining players cannot get them now.
 
If the epic is not going to get reopened, then old rewards should be
either removed from the game, or made purchasable without the run count limit.
