    update messed up

    you messed up the guild task reset timer! now the guild tasks change every time I reenter the game and it gives random time before they are refreshed!!!

  3. waiting for 5 minutes for a tank is bad. 2 dd +tank+healer is a balanced party, but there are other viable compositions. 3 dd + healer is fine 2 dd + 2 healers is fine. there should be an option to turn off the new filter to find sub optimal parties faster. and forcing the pilgrim calendar on every entrance into the game is just annoying. removing the tavern was not a great idea. It could still be used for search of parties for uncommon purposes, like events or pk groups. the invitation to dg should be disabled when a person is doing quests actively. or at least give us an option to disable it while we are in dynamic areas with daily quests. not everyone wants to be interrupted by a dg from doing quests.
  4. Now the character does not lose energy points if no reward was received for the battle with a monster or boss. right on time! Why didn't we have this during love lunacy?!
  5. a bunch of costumes appeared in the shop and there is nothing on forum to alert players about it. it would be great to add info about such things. also - now separate costumes cost 1500 diamonds instead of 1200. apparently 1200 was somehow not enough.
  6. increasing to 50-60 is a huge strain on a server. that means you need to store a list that is twice as long for EACH player. There is a reason it is limited to 30 now. with just 5 allied guilds you will have 5*20 new people to interact with. such list is only 5 entries instead of additional 20-30 which is 4-6 times less and it can connect you to a hundred players which is 3-5 times more.
  7. (this is the copy of my suggestion from general section, I suppose general section can be used to discuss this idea in general and its impact on the game, while here technical details can be discussed instead) I just had a light-bulb moment. Do you know that friend list that has 30 slots? It is usually not enough because for arenas, dungeons and events you often need party and some of your friends can be offline. And the amount of incoming candidates for friends is also limited so using that "waiting room" as an extension of this list is only a temporary solution. So, the idea that I had is to make a friend list for GUILDS! Just think about it. You only need one entry to have access to the whole group of players. Just click on the guild, and then you can select any member of that guild to communicate. Expanding the friend list by 30 more entries will give you thirty more people. Adding the guild friend list will give you access to 30 guilds where each guild can have 10-20 candidates. If you can have opposing guilds, you should also have allied guilds. And if a person from the guild doesn't want to receive messages from you, they can just add you to the blacklist. This will connect more players so it will be easier even for "lone wolves" to find company when they need it.

  9. The final joke! And it is as horrible as the whole event. Today there was a notification about event's ending (tomorrow). And the message says: Don't forget to use your group gorgor contracts and to spend ophirium because you won't have such opportunity later. Really? Really guys? Don't forget to spend ophirium? You mean the currency that you have DELETED after the first part of the event was over? That ophirium? To spend NONEXISTENT ophirium of WHAT? The only thing that could be bought for ophirium was an event lootbox with ophirium price tag. And that lootbox was DELETED from the store along with ophirium from our wallets! Even if we had millions of ophirium, we wouldn't spend it because the currency became USELESS without the only product in the store that could be bought with it! Can you IMAGINE the amount of NOT CARING about this game, this event, and your players to just write that notification?! Do you not know what is happening in your own game? Did you not know that ophirium and ophirium-priced lootbox were gone long ago? WORST EVENT EVER! WORST in terms of game mechanic and in terms of your attitude to players. Whoever wrote today's message is ignorant about the game and dangerously lazy. At least this is a fitting end to this mess.
  10. arena queue is bugged again. waiting 5+ minutes is not normal. The game should have spawned bot team after second minute of waiting.
  11. while you are fixing bugs, it is time for another rant. There are four locations, as in the previous version of the client, but we replaced the Crypt with the previously removed Bandit Lair, since the former was already used in this format as part of the Halloween event in 2022. that DOES NOT FOLLOW. I am sorry, but that simply is not true, and I hope that you were lied to rather than being part of it. There is NOTHING in programming that would prevent you from having a normal crypt location and an event crypt location at the same time. It is a simple if-else statement. If contract is from event - use this map, else - generate random number and take it modulo 3 or 4 and send a player to one of the normal maps. The game doesn't care if your event map and one of the normal maps are the same. If anything - it is even better because you are spending fewer resources (only the boss has to be replaced and everything else is just copy and paste) This is not a memory issue either. We have all our gorgor contracts plus love lunacy love dimension location and in the recent event there was yet another map. It is perfectly possible to have one more gorgor map and you know it because we observed it before. So why remove the crypt? The way I see it is that you are planning to reuse the event-crypt on Halloween and if you do just that then players will say something like: - oh look! They just replaced the boss in one of the locations! They are so lazy...if they are lazy. Maybe they don't have the funds to develop and improve the game any more? Maybe the game will soon be closed? maybe they are too greedy and take all the profit for themselves rather than investing into game? Maybe this sounds too harsh, and it doesn't have to be worded exactly like this, but the message is clear - it is getting more and more (financially) difficult to introduce new content to the game. That's a bad sign for us players. If the crypt map is removed, some players will forget it and by the time Halloween happens they will be fascinated to visit this "NEW" gorgor location. But it is not new. I know that in your language there is a proverb that "everything new is a well forgotten old" but it is wrong. Instead of creating more NEW content you turn off pieces of existing content to turn it on later and pretend that it is new. And this is wrong. I remember crypt map, other veteran players will remember that map and when you reintroduce it on event it will NOT be seen as new map. To sum it up: the reasoning behind replacing the crypt map is weak. And a more ominous reason seems more plausible. You can call me a conspiracy theorist, but we are talking about mmorpg. These games don't live long. Players leave to new projects because each year new games with better graphics are made. And the trend of more and more demanding events I mentioned in a different thread also leads to such conclusion. As a player I want you to know that I don't mind playing vanilla Skylore. I will be here even without events or with old events reused. Your concern is to keep premium players who pay the bills. I sincerely hope that it was not YOUR decision to temporarily remove the crypt map so that players forget it. Because if we allow that to happen, next we might have bigger parts of the game removed and reintroduced in the same way. Do you want to lose one of the three arenas? How about one of the four dungeons? One of the two battlegrounds perhaps? Daily quests? Daily quests in pvp areas? What will be next?
  12. arena queue broken/lagged. waiting for match 15+ minutes and game doesn't spawn bot team either. this is not normal.
  13. spikehorn male doesn't have an orange dot quest marker although you have to kill it for quest.
  14. I thought you can't make this event worse, but here we are...I guess you absolutely HAVE to go with the fools' theme. "we left the lootboxes so players could buy them if they missed the time before update..." - no you didn't. you kept the lootboxes with the diamond cost. If you cared about players who could miss the last day of the event to buy those you would not delete the ophirium priced chest. You didn't have to remove it. There were no more quests to gain ophirium. And the group contracts were timed. You could actually leave the chest for ophirium and it wouldn't break anything. But you didn't. And now there are only 1 chest for 100 diamonds and pack of 10 chests for 900 diamonds (90 diamonds each). The estimated cost of the costume is 1200 diamonds. So if you bought just twenty chests with the discount you would spend 1800 diamonds. That's 150% of the estimated cost of the costume without any guarantee to get it. Unless you had 180-190 chests before the update, spending any amount of diamonds on those chests is the horrible investment. You can get it from blue dungeon chest. And a guaranteed from each third blue chest. Sounds nice except the chances for a blue chest to drop are pretty low. And you can't throw away a chest. The only way to dispose of the chest is to open it. So to get more chances to get blue chest you must open more white/green chests. How do you open more chests when there is a timer? You pay diamonds to skip the timer! So you are paying money to have another go at this one-armed bandit and there is a ten-minute dungeon run in between to make it look like a game and not a blatant gambling. This is getting into Diablo Immor(t)al territory, and we all know how much of the backlash that game received. And you have every tool to make it better. You used that tool in a pirate event. You have a hidden counter to see how many times the dungeon was attempted. Instead of making a reward from blue chest, which has to be obtained through multiple dungeon runs, you could make a reward from completing a certain amount of dungeons regardless of the chests stored in a queue. You do NOT want players to play more dungeons because the counter of dungeon runs would achieve that. No, you want them to spend more diamonds to insta unlock dungeon chests. Doing more runs is just an intermediary step to get those blue chests and to add time between a pair of diamond-paid insta unlocks to disguise gambling as a game. I really hope that the decision about this part of the event was made BEFORE the first part of the event occurred and BEFORE you received all the feedback from players and that it was simply to late to change plans. But hey, at least we don't have the "helpers for contract" spam in the chat anymore! Good luck with that gambling.
  15. yet another scammer to the list. Drizzy. Lied about having a contract. Got away with two free runs. Don't accept him into your 4x4 exchange party
