Happy Change Month! (in General)
May 1 2005 10:16 AM EDT
Something truly worth celebrating. What are you hoping to receive during it? All I'm looking for is a degree of certainty regarding near-term CB direction so I can finally make some tough decisions with Brock.
Has jon always made a change on regular schedule?

Every odd month is a change month - correct me if I'm wrong.
All I want from Santa this change month is my two front teeth....

In the Behind The Scenes FAQ
, Jon says:
Changes impacting game balance are only made during odd-numbered months.

Also some tank friendly changes, that give a tank team some chance at beating ToE mages more easily. But I do emphasize tank friendly, so not necessarily ToE nerfs.

i have been playing for 2 years and Jon has never missed a change month
May 1 2005 10:43 AM EDT
indeed, almost a year and a half on cb and always liked the frustration of people during change month ;)
nearly 1 year for me (n00b :O) like clock work :)
Looking for in the change month...
* ToE no longer making AMF virtually useless
* Jon annoucing he has been convinced a NW nerf is not a good thing (NW = PR)
* Tournaments reintroduced with me running them :p
* New goals for new players, like beat this guy, get 10K etc.. From ideas.
* Weather effects brought in, so its raining one day (hit to Fireball, bonus to CoC, Ranged harder to hit) sunny the next etc..
* A random happy hour once per week introduced (Extra money + extra exp combined for one hour).
Just a short list :p

"always liked the frustration of people during change month ;) "
And here we are, already twisting in the wind.
For what it's worth I like every single change Myth proposed, along with a more heavy call to foam-pad ToE's. This from a char completely reliant on one...
Mags, you like the idea of myth running tournies? /me smacks the drugs out of Mags' hand.
Hey now, me running tournies is better than no tournies, surely? :p
I already offered my services to Jon and said I obviously wouldnt get admin status with it, oddly he never replied :D

*has failed to notice any changes in Changelog*

Dumb question: I may have misread it, but did Jon say he was committed to making the NW as part of PR change ? I know he posted a list of how the rankings would change based upon his new calculations, but I wasn't sure if that was a teaser, a "this is how it'll be" or whatnot.. If such a change was made, and previously announced, would it warrant a new thread ?

Oddly enough I like all of Myth's ideas, too.
/me chants "Happy Hour!" over and over.

Jon has told me that since his wife is due in ~2 weeks, it may be a small change month.
Jon's going to be a daddy again? Congratulations!
technically the due date is in in 5 days, but who's counting :)
Small change month for cb ... big change month for Jonathan. :-)
although most of my friends tell me that the 1st is the biggest change, and the 3rd is the next-biggest (because then THEY outnumber YOU).

-Notify Me of Responses -> Not notify of own reply
-Add Cash Total to Manage Characters page (like ammo)
I look forward to you updating your profile picture with three bodies and two faces :-)
A hearty congratulations Jonathan!. All the best to your wife and you.

lol at Sut :)
I found anything after the first to be easy. Once you are used to having kids, to me it made no difference with 2 or 3.
but this came to me just now, (maybe has been brought up, but o well)
- Arrows/Bolts could get BS'ed or forged into slayers/seekers, (kinda like tattoo artist). With a fair price, to keep them rare ammo still.
*still no keyboard...=/ lol

Congrats Jon! Happy being a father again, again and again. :p
May 3 2005 9:00 AM EDT
Congrats Jon, hope all goes well and keeps you away from changing the effectiveness of my mage char :)
On a side note my wife is expecting two...but that's not till September.
May 3 2005 9:01 AM EDT
One more thing, how about instead of Happy Hour (since that doesn't seem to fit with Jon's obsession with balance) you just make crazy hour change up a bit...because those of us that only play at work never get to play during crazy money time :(
May 3 2005 10:38 AM EDT
Congrats Jon! Don't underestimate the impact of the 2nd! (I stopped at three, but we were a bit overconfident after the first)
May 3 2005 11:04 AM EDT
I just had my second. Big change from number 1. Now I actually have to be a Dad and watch Son #1 while she takes care of #2.
As a planning to be first time parent, congrats Jon. I hope everything goes well! ;)
Do you know if it will be a boy or a girl? Hospitals here won't tell anyone anymore...
May 3 2005 11:26 AM EDT
Loser, Its all about the liability. As a radiologist I tell noone, as there have been successful lawsuits by parents about just that. A radiologist or OB told them it was a boy, it turned out to be a girl (honest mistake) but the parents won the lawsuit claiming "emotional distress" that the girl was born.
Congratulations Jon! That the new born baby may be filled and surrounded with love and laughter. I hope that your wife will be well during the happy hours. :)
we haven't had an ultrasound; we're looking forward to the surprise
May 3 2005 1:35 PM EDT
congratz jon im looking forward to my first child coming soon in July >< doh that will be another change month
June 1 2005 2:26 AM EDT
Whewf. Jon's kid made it, CB made it, and against all odds, we made it.
What a change month. Let's see how it plays out. See you in the blender...
