Changemonth Finale (in General)
November 30 2006 5:55 PM EST
Its the final days until changemonth (un)officially starts
And to kick things off for what i would like to see happen... here i a complete curveball
The ability to have up to 6 minions... thats right 6 minions....
Immagine the possibilities that people could have with 6 minions... so much greatness could go on.
A team of 6 mages would that be good? or would they blow.
how about 4 enchanters buffing 2 tanks... one in front and one in back... a few of them with PL and AMF and DM... what madness would happen then?

Why stop at 6? Why not 10 or 12 or even 20?
The more the merrier.
Seriously, do you realize the xp dilution if there were more than 4 minions? Well not for those with the NUB or NCB, but for us normal players.

You're not normal Ranger.

i do realize the dilution... you realize how big the dilution is between 1-4 minion teams...?
Why say that the people can have 6 minions?
I say 6 is a good place to stop. Half a dozen, could get some good combinations off, even if its diluted. I think 4 minions are stupid...
people who have 4 may think 6 is awesome
November 30 2006 6:18 PM EST
I think 6 would be awesome if at least 1 of them was a pony...
November 30 2006 6:18 PM EST
would benefits would a pony possibly have in this game? Increased ability to run away? or... a new form of meat shield :P
/me thinks thats called animal cruelty
I, m going to say the next familiar is going to be made of silly putty and able to rub out whole pages of text.

forget six make everyone use 1 minoin :P
November 30 2006 6:52 PM EST
Well, you could certainly make some interesting teams that way. Imagine a 100 minion team with a RoS Boosted AS. Or a 100 minion team with 99 AS's and one ToA tank. Or 99 minions with 400 AC and 1 with a ToE.
But in all reality there is little point to going more than 6 minions (only 6 ED spells)

exactly 6 is the magic number everyone.
Who wouldn't like for that to be an ability... i mean... adding of new spells and items. only tweaks the game so much... but 6 minion teams, is a whole new playing field for CBers
The number of minions a team has is of particular importance to the balance of the game, believe me adding the familiar minions was dramatic enough.

precisely would 6 minions not be the boost this game could use, to re-spark interest in Cbers who have quit, and to totally tweak things to where, the people in the top may have a running for their money, with some wisely placed minions?
I'll go out on a limb and say that the only thing that could REALLY spark the interest mentioned in the previous post would be the addition/major buffing of an economic aspect of the game. That would make it just a little bit less like playing USD Blender.

"precisely would 6 minions not be the boost this game could use, to re-spark interest in Cbers who have quit, and to totally tweak things to where, the people in the top may have a running for their money, with some wisely placed minions?"
No, it wouldn't be.
Think we found a new addition to FORS.

I second that Gun.
to re-spark interest in Cbers who have quit, and to totally tweak things to where
How would having 6 minions re-spark interest in CBers that have quit?
Most, if not all quit not because they "only had just 4 minions" - they quit because of real-life issues. I fail to see how it would re-spark interest when they lost interest in another part of the game.

I think the pony idea is excellent. You could equip it with 2 pairs of DBs, then your tank/mage could ride it. Imagine the evasion possibilities. :)

I want a pony.
Or, that's either £25, or you need to go to the loo, for a 'Pony and Trap'.
Rhyming slang FTW! ;)

My Little Pony GL, the little pink one with the ribbons
What about My Little Pony! I want one! If GL and Johnny get one, so should I!
G Must have a 'My Little Pony' Smiley... ;)

Hey! I get the first pony! I've only been asking every change month for a year!
