Don't worry, neutrals will be phased out eventually. No plans on developing them into a side. Putting in application forms (only usable by neutrals) to kill off even more of the population, and assimilating them into either clan or omni. It would be one thing to put app's in for all sides, but to only allow neutrals kind of ticks me off a bit. It's a pretty clear message to me.

It would really be Anarchy Online with 3 sides battling it out agaisnt one another. Each side being equal in how much time you want to develope your character, sadly thats not the case. But as it is, it's just one side (Omni) on RK1. No offense to Omni's at all. Lots of great people there, but I just wonder what FC will do when 80%+ wind up being Omni.

Where will the conflict be? Any opposition will just get steam rolled. Why not call it Omni Online. You want a dynamic game, develope all 3 equally. That would be Anarchy. Neutrals were never meant to be a power in the conflict, thats fine too. But the game evovles and changes. What will you do FunCom when neutrals do switch to Omni?

Clans having enough of it, and just give up due to the imbalance. How will you balance the game then? What kind of changes will you then have to make for battlestations to run. This could of been a good way to introduce another power in the conflict (albiet a divided one, due to how neutrals like to play, but thats besides the point).

I just see this as a missed opportunity, that can oneday come to bite you back in the ass.
I won't be pushing to develop Neutral as an equal strength faction. Giving Clan the opportunity to become Omni would also not help. If there are actual balance issues they can be addressed...I think we have shown we are willing to look into old issues. Failure to "win" Neutrals over to the clan side was a very damaging blow to the Clan side...but was definitely a part of what makes AO a MMORPG. One person can make a huge difference...I can't code in better leadership for the Clan faction.

We tried out the idea of VP dropping from individual kills on the BS for this years birthday. I think this went very well and will likely be added to the BS (as a regular thing) in the near future. BS win/loose scaling also needs some adjustment.

More PVP experiences and quests for VP should be coming in the near future...we just need more time.

Everyone hates to do it cos it is slow and boring as hell. Streamline that quest! Why cant we just hand in a backpack of guns and get 2 tokes boom, instead of having to wade thru... "Gaute Mechanics". Those are defined as any incredibly tedious process that serves no purpose other than to waste time and inhibit any rational beings enjoyment of what they are being made to do.
I don't think Gaute made it envisioning people doing this 2500 times. I do think we can probably do something to make it easier. Ideally we should also add some other ways of obtaining tokens.

Raid is for getting items and achieving larger goals...not for completing quests and getting XP/SK. I think Hecklers was an excellent example of "getting everything" in the same place and we don't want to do that again.

Oh and fill in RK missing zones as well, gief each RK zone a Raid Dungeon of some kind, filled with massive rp detail of course
SL was essentially a relaunch of the entire game...it was huge. We won't be releasing anything on that scale anytime soon as you would be waiting 3+ years to get it. More Dungeons would be great. We are working on one now conceptually for the next unannounced booster.

One idea that struck me for this is to just use the room where we choose proffession during character creation. Have the toons that are rolled stand there looking as they look ingame atm, press to select(you then zoom in on it like when creating character) and press again to enter game. Hopefully it would be fast to leave one toon and enter the character chamber, so relogs would be quick. And when leaving game it would be ususal logout time.

Hope this made sense.
While it is a good idea it is a pretty big job as I understand it. Macrosun's plate is pretty full right not...so I wouldn't count on seeing that one any time soon.

Would it be possible to clarify on the new 24 hour missions you hinted on the 18.1 forums?

WTB 18.2 preview.. I'm addicted to change
24/Daily missions will likely be coming after the Nightclub and the new 150-200 playfield. Probably September.

C) suffer the humiliation of appearing at work in my vacation.

How do you handle the latter? Is it easier to set a bad example, when you're the boss?
(Yes, going to work in your vacation is a bad thing)
I come to work on my vacation. I also fail by working remotely from home. This is setting a bad example...there is just so much to do that won't be done magically while I am away from my work. Running a universe is about as much work as it sounds like it would be.

A good deal is putting it very mildly. Most of the old items are "vendor trash". Updating these would be an enormous effort for very very little gain..given that for new players to "roll" these in missions would require clicksaver or enormous patience. I'm more inclined to provide missions with new decent lower-level weapons are rewards to help smooth out the nasty weapon aquisition problem at lower levels.

Decreasing quest monster spawn time has been going on for some time...as soon as we identify quest monsters on long timers we decrease them as soon as we can. Let us know what quests have this issue and we will get to changing it. That being said, I remember when we had significantly higher numbers and I also remember still having fun.

What options are you considering to address this failed design? I can not beleive that heckler bashing was ever the intended path for leveling.
There will always be a "1% faster" leveling path, and as long as it exists players will follow it...even if it is mind numbingly boring. While I can't pretend I haven't done hecklers I did have some fun when I did. We will do what we have been doing the whole time...keep adding alternatives to current leveling process and players will choose their own path rather than us forcing them on it. That being said I think this is more an expression of displeasure of the speed of leveling than a real question. I would also like to mention that any in-game activity that has been done for 1000000's of hours over a period of 6 years can't really be described as a design "failure".

No level locking...ever. If anything we need to incentivise players to actually do the content in those zones. If the content isn't being done then it must not be worth it...reward adjustment is likely the route we will take. Quest-Style content is poorly rewarded in AO in terms of XP...I hope to change this.

While AO has not had this turn into a legal other MMO's have and as such access to paid content has been at least in limited forms available for the solo casual player. Has FC considered anything to address the issue or is it not an issue in FC's view?
It isn't an issue at all. All the content in LE represents an "opportunity" for an experience...purchasing the expansion does not forgo the achievement of actually completing it. Any legal issue surrounding our content would be laughable and certainly would be treated as such by the legal establishment. Just out of morbid curiousity...what content do you believe was not "Legally" accessible (with effort) in Lost Eden?

No we are not looking at making mech combat more involving. Mech Warrior is a completely different game...they do what they do well. I also think that the Pre-Order mech from LE is one of the best looking mech models I have ever seen. We are looking at adding some new "kinds" of vehicles at some point...but it isn't a burning issue.

If we add new vehicles there will likely be new global research to obtain them. I'm actually relieved that the global research was completed as quickly as it was...anything else would have been very very boring.

If that was the design you were nice enough to send me (twice at my request) concerning the low level alien sector it was a good one. If we haven't done something similar recently it is because we have been working on other content/fixes. I'm sure you can understand how busy we get. Excuse me now while I look at your 9th question. :P

Nope. The players have organizations, not the company. More access to aliens? Yes! Great idea. Why don't you start a newbie org and have a city? I'll give you the credits I farmed from selling XP-Stims!

Do you think it is time for FC to have an Items Database front end and supported/approved tools?
I'd love to have an Armory for AO. I am also certain players would complain if others could look up their setups. I'm gratefull for the amazing sites our fans have built over time for you guys. We have a coder/designer who has been wanting to do this kind of thing..who knows when we might get a chance to start it. For now those other sites seem to work well...perhaps we'll have her finish her first playfield first..it looks great!

If I did not play the game I could beleive it was a dead game.
Yes.

With the next booster and new engine we will be investing in advertising. Before that we are satisfied with the large numbers of free players who try the game every day. Our immediate focus will be more along the lines of keeping new players rather than getting more to try it. Hundreds of thousands of players try AO every year...if that many stayed we would be laughing...exposure to new customers is not the current problem...retention of new players is.

Since some many skills are checked for various attacks knowing if AAD is helping you or not would be nice. Is it possible for AAD to have some explantion provided by FC?
A little mystery is ok. I won't be giving those secrets away.

These are the things that I see as most critical to any pvp balancing effort, on the rational that these are the things that I think people find the most frustrating and unenjoyable about pvp:

1) 'i win button' style pvp, also coyly referred to as 'nemesis professions'. It makes pvp less fun for anyone to know that they stand no chance vs. a certain profession, or that a certain profession will almost always kill them easily.

2) 'luck of the dice' mechanics, things that are based heavily on chance that can really tip the balance of any given pvp fight aren't fun because fun pvp is when a user is in complete control of their toolset, not when they are attacking and crossing their fingers that <whatever> will magically happen for them. (Think stun procs as the best example of this)

3) offenses and (and maybe defenses) for which twinking and preparing well has no perceptible effect. (specials that have no real def. checks, nanos that have no real def checks, etc...) These are like 'i win' buttons, except that instead of purely and instantly determining a fight, they are frustrating to anyone who has spent time preparing a toon for pvp, because despite all of your preparation, those attacks/defenses have no counters.

I've tried to keep these fairly profession unspecific!
1. I don't mind the nemesis series...I would prefer that they were more "equal" from one profession to another. There will always be professions that are more difficult for some professions...I think this is ok as long as that profession has weaknesses to other professions. When strong classes lack a weakness we run into problems like we have now.

2. Pure luck offense like the Stun Procs is crap. Even the PVP crats hated it. What we replaced them with doesn't seem right either though...more work is needed on that one.

3. I'm not sure I agree on this one...it might be great to have done a great deal of preparation and be largely immune to the tools of others...but it can't be much fun for the person fighting you who finds all his tools useless because of something you did 6 months ago. Some things simply need to land...you can't prepare your way out of them completely Given the chance I would love to rework the perk system so it becomes "decreased" rather than "On or Off"...unperkable/unhittable is god-mode and boring for everyone else but the over-geared person. Seeing your toolset actually function in a diminished way has to be more fun than to see everything you do resisted all the time.

You can let me know what you think about a perk system rework when I reopen this thread...only a few thousand questions left...Damn you all and your thirst for information!!!

Maybe. Not exactly a small job unfortunately.

You could alternatively answer, Why does the VP grind have to suck so bad?
The birthday was over. It was a great test run of this kind of thing. We'll put it back in as soon as we get the chance. Adjustments are also necessary for the amount the losing side receives at some point.

Alternatively:

D0000d? B4k 1n s00n!

Physical init: Inamorata Shere Bow, Bow of Belith, Great Bow of Premonition,

Ranged init: Kyr'Ozch Crossbow - Type 3, Ofab Tiger Mk 6, Chaos of the Xan


•Any chance that the "Profession == Martial Artist" and "Profession == Meta-Physicist" that some bows have could be changed to "Visual profession"?

•Why have the planet map not been updated since the Dove one?

•You mentioned new players coming. isn't that unwise, during the profession balancing?

Kind Regards
-Ariensky

PS. now Bow of Belith is mentioned..
•any breed-locked weapons coming up?


PPS.
•What would happen to a developer, if (s)he behind your back put a nickel statue of you, dressed as an astronaut pointing to the stars, ingame?
Bows - No idea...you might want to ask Metaing on TestLive about that one. I've never thought about it.

New Players - We'll take them whenever we can. If they see we are working on issues and in dialog with the community I don't think they will take it as a "bad" thing.

Map - We'll need to update them at some point soon. ICC needs a grid exit. I'm probably forgetting some completely logical story reason for why there isn't an ICC grid exit..Aythem will likely kill me for putting one in when she is away on vacation.

Breed locked weapons - Might be fun...but not immediate plans for that. Secret Information - Belith is my brother-in-law!

Statue thing - A statue of me in-game is the only thing that would be cheesier than Atroxes in thongs...I vote no.
