Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.

- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Bad fix for duplicate demi items

    While I understand the need to fix the duplicate demi item bug, the script used to wipe out the duplicates had a fatal flaw. They wiped out duplicates of ALL demi items regardless of where they came from. This means that if you had multiple Lionheart Blades, or multiple Moonfall Maces, you now only have ONE.

    The problem is that you can ALSO get Lionheart Blades from Amethyst Sea Serpents and Gold Dragons. You could get Moonfall Maces from Ancient Sea Serpents.

    I'm just starting to go through my spreadsheet where I tracked weapons and items so I don't know the full extent of the "loss". Is anything going to be done to restore the missing items or are we just "s#&^ out of luck".

    (Keep link removed)

    seriously, you are venting for demi-items that are easily replaced by hunting the newer monsters

      First of all you can expect a lot of silence. Gods now better if you are worthy their time or not.
      On the other hand I do not understand the idea behind this wipe. I was pretty sure that these three duplicate demi items came as a compensation for the ****ups in the previous arena, because it was exactly the time we suffered the fresh breeze of new bugs. Oh how refreshing it was, but not as refreshing as the last few days. But it seems it was yet another **** up and not an act of kindness for sure.

        Actually, I'm venting over bad programming that wiped out a significant number of hours of gameplay and forces me to use my limited playing time trying to replace them. I've been a programmer for the last 15 years and this was a stupid mistake by the devs. It shows they do not regularly play the game they are programming, have no QA or unit testing of their code and in general, are pretty sloppy with their work.

        While the items missing may be easy for YOU to replace, given my workload and the limited time I have available these days, it will probably be a few months before I'm back to where I was. To me, that's worth at least a post in the tech support forums...

            bad programming or not, if the effects of the programming doesn't even grossly affect your invade capability here, it's a meh for me

              Because the devs took away items the player legitimately earned. I'd be miffed as well. Who knows what else might have been removed from those of us that don't track every item we get.

              And please cut out the swearing. I know we have a word filter, but we'd prefer it didn't have to be used. Thanks.

                well, i'd be more than pissed if the said items were actually effective in boosting my army however the current in-game formula doesn't do that. i don't see enough reason beyond that

                  Besides, I'm not the only person affected... I'm just one of the few that bothered to create a post. If you stopped assuming everyone plays the way you do, you might see that this could be devastating to lower leveled players.

                    i only see effects, not decision made to it and the ingame formula is not going to punish you for losing those items even lower level players won't be manhandled by such programming failure.

                        Exactly. I don't care about the items. I don't even know how many I had. I don't know their stats. But I know that developers are lamers. And that is affecting the whole game. And this part is bad, very bad

                            I'm not a slayer. I don't have 501 of the BIS items. So, any chance I could get my demi stuff back? I know it sounds a little pathetic, but some of that stuff was still in my invasion gear and now I'm left with 1 of each.

                              @virtualchoirboy: You do have a point in saying that you lost something you worked hard to earn. Moonfall Mace [8/11] is almost as good as a High King Crown (Top regular PvP prize), and it would definitely be one of the better items in a low level's invade set. You're probably not wrong in saying that the devs are incompetent in programming. I lost many maces and other farmable demi items myself and I'm less than pleased.

                              That said, replacing them shouldn't be too bad. Monsters like Genesis, Ragnarok and Skaar Deathrune for example drop many items which are stronger than the Moonfall Mace and are easily farmable by tagging them for 200-300k damage.
