Quarterly change month (in Changelog)

AdminJonathan June 8 2006 1:19 AM EDT

So, June 06 will be the first of the quarterly change months. That is, instead of 6 change months a year there will be four, every three months. Next change month will be September.

Also, I promise to get a new supporter item implemented this month. :)

Two small changes to start us off:

Turned off the cooldown feature. I think that while the problem it tries to solve is a real one, perhaps this has been a case of the cure being worse than the disease.

Reduced RoS anti-DM effect to 1/4 of its level (from 2/5), effective after cache flush.

What? I thought RoS blocked all DM, lol. Learn something new each day =D

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] June 8 2006 1:24 AM EDT

Meep. RoS effect destroyed. Can no longer use. Must...change to...IF...

QBJohnnywas June 8 2006 1:28 AM EDT

Is it a coincidence that we had 6.6.06 the other day and lo and behold here is a changemonth........I think I'll let GL know that this is what he's missing by going to Download!


Stephen June 8 2006 1:41 AM EDT

Just text him that UC has been nerfed for a laugh

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] June 8 2006 2:12 AM EDT

ROFL, that would be great!

And i see were all still alive to be here for my birthday, yesterday (6/7/06). =)

QBJohnnywas June 8 2006 2:46 AM EDT

lol, I think GL is worried!

Phrede June 8 2006 3:07 AM EDT

Best news I have had in months no more cooldown - well done Jonathan.

Vaynard [Fees Dirt Cheap] June 8 2006 3:11 AM EDT

Awwwwww man, change month has been nerfed!

lol, sorry, it's late and lame sense of humor has taken over.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] June 8 2006 3:46 AM EDT

RoS change looks good, I think I was one of the minority in favor of the cool down period, I'm just glad I'm not fighting lots near the top anymore, this may result in some really annoying equipment changes when under attack by those with large resources.

Mem June 8 2006 8:18 AM EDT


Maelstrom June 8 2006 8:18 AM EDT

Naturally, cooldown is gone once I permanently switch from RoE to ToE... :/

Oh well, I'm just glad there are still going to be changes. I was getting worried...

[DC]Final Fight June 8 2006 10:41 AM EDT

The cooldown gets abolished right when i stop my tank experimenting....

Oh well, im all for it. Godd changes in my opinion. I cant wait to see what the item is though. Any guesses?

Mandy [Journey] June 8 2006 11:15 AM EDT

I liked the cool down-except when i mistakenly put something on the wrong minion... I think the cool down could be redone with maybe a get out of jail free card kinda thing.. you get one 'card' a week or soemthing and have to pay a small fine for those times when 'accidents' happen

babbler June 8 2006 12:53 PM EDT

argh no my poor RoS

the devil was late arriving Jon =P

Bull3t F4c3 June 8 2006 2:54 PM EDT

drudge June 8 2006 4:33 PM EDT

Roenall June 8 2006 4:42 PM EDT

Time to change for a DIV4.

wow; nice to see you still care Jon :-)

chelon June 9 2006 6:50 AM EDT

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] June 9 2006 11:48 AM EDT

/me jumps for joy!

This is the best news I've had all day...and I was kinda having a "everything sucks" day, so thanks for cheering me up, Jon!

Lumpy Koala June 12 2006 2:58 AM EDT

changes seem subtle so far :P Come on Jon, add something that changes the fate of human kind !!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 12 2006 8:24 AM EDT

Badda-big, badda-boom!


Shepherd's Pie!


Arorrr June 12 2006 4:27 PM EDT

Any changes are good for this game.

Please stir the pot more, Jon.

Maelstrom June 12 2006 6:22 PM EDT

If I had Pixel's prowess with Photoshop, I'd paste in Darth Jonathan, but...

QBPixel Sage June 19 2006 4:52 PM EDT

Haha, crazy Malestorm.

So... you guys ready for the new supporter item? =D

th00p June 19 2006 5:10 PM EDT

*th00p_Beee twiddles his thumbs as the last 12 days of June wind down... woohoo for the new supporter item!

Maelstrom June 19 2006 5:32 PM EDT

Meh, been waiting a month and a half already for some changes, another few days won't make a difference. That's if there are actually some changes coming... hard to believe it...

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] June 19 2006 8:22 PM EDT

guaranteed to be one change, new supporter item, =)

Starseed^Lure June 20 2006 1:22 AM EDT

Hurrah! a change month!

Flamey June 22 2006 1:58 AM EDT

*cough* where is our item? *cough*

8 days left.......

Unappreciated Misnomer June 22 2006 3:11 AM EDT

well...as for this new item, i dream the day IA'a will come back(but i hit my head :P), but i think that the chances are that the new item will be 1) a weapon- for people to put cash into 2) another tattoo i dont think we need, current ones need more just right tweaking... and lastly for what i really would like to see is for jon to fix the exbow/axbow nerf(thats a bad one imo) but could make up for it by introducing a new xbow???.....wait wait its 3am and crazy enough could it be the long a waited mage staff or a UC item!!!1!!one! im all giddy....hehehehe

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] June 22 2006 3:27 AM EDT

any chance of the optional return of the forums to the main page?
maybe Verifex already did this with his stuff?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 22 2006 3:56 AM EDT

Just keep an eye on Stats/Items/Overview for anything that only has an amount of 1. Or see if anything new gets added to Expostfacto.


Flamey June 23 2006 6:03 AM EDT

bump bump, is something happening here?

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] June 23 2006 7:02 AM EDT

*tosses a pitchfork into some guy's house* Where's the new supporter item? I'm getting impatient!

QBJohnnywas June 23 2006 7:08 AM EDT

I'm sensing a lot of aggression here, young one.

Remember, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware. Anger, fear, aggression. The dark side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] June 23 2006 7:14 AM EDT

JW nice try but I'm almost sure Seran is a sidious clone on the grow...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 23 2006 7:16 AM EDT

Hungry I am. Feed me you will. :)

QBJohnnywas June 23 2006 7:16 AM EDT

I'm thinking Seran's more like the boy from that movie 'Problem Child'

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 23 2006 7:17 AM EDT

Well, there's the mini nerf to PL to keep you guys sated for a little while. :)

Gallatin [Thanoscopter And You] June 23 2006 8:44 AM EDT

*carps JohnnyWas* And I consider you a brat. :P

Maelstrom June 23 2006 9:55 AM EDT

What mini-PL nerf? There was no changelog...

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 23 2006 10:17 AM EDT

It seems to have been dropped from 2 points per level to 1.8 points per level. :)

No changelog yet. :)
