"I was here before FB" supporter item ideas (in General)


AdminJonathan January 18 2008 1:24 PM EST

I'd like to do one last supporter item before opening things up to FB. Something that says "vet pride." :)

Ideas?

QBJohnnywas January 18 2008 1:29 PM EST

Amulet Of Carnage. Every plus adds a percentage bonus to every stat. Just for us old timers!

AdminNightStrike January 18 2008 1:30 PM EST

A vorpal dagger!

AdminNightStrike January 18 2008 1:30 PM EST

Maye you could make a unique item, and make it the prize for a tournament.

j'bob January 18 2008 1:33 PM EST

How about a Lapel Pin of Power? just kidding, please keep reading.
I think now would be a good time to throw a Ring out there (maybe even the only one ever) but I don't know how that would mess with the armor slot thing.
But imagine, a Ring of Protection. Confers protection that can not be dispelled.
Upgradeable, BUT only by way of forging. (I saw that idea out there somewhere and liked it). No blacksmith upgrades, you want more protection from your ring, get a forger and give him/her some money.

QBRanger January 18 2008 1:39 PM EST

The protection thing is great.

Shield of protection.

Each + is equivalent to (x) level of protection. Non dispelled on that minion. Stacks like any other spell.

Cost curve can be COI. Getting to 10 is easy, anything over 16 is expensive and over 20 almost impossible.

Has no negatives to skills/spells/stats. Or at most a negative 2% like the HoC.

Not enough to change game dynamics, but nice enough for enchanters, or mages who currently have no shield to use.

AdminNightStrike January 18 2008 1:40 PM EST

It also pays homage to D&D, where mages historically lack any source of armor. A Ring of Protection (=1 through +5) is vital to a mage's survival.

Though all that changed in 3rd edition, where mages were able to wear armor......

Talion January 18 2008 1:46 PM EST

How about An Elven Amulet?

Cannot be upgraded, but adds +1 to all equipped elven gear (EG, EC, EB, EH, ELB, and ELS).

It would be of minor consequence to new users but very valuable to vets with expensive elven items.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 18 2008 1:48 PM EST

Bring back the CB-T! or the GoP!

Little Anthony January 18 2008 1:50 PM EST

what are those?

Last Gasp January 18 2008 1:50 PM EST

Amulet of Reflection - Reflects all manner of damage both physical and magical as well as backlash damage from GA and AM - 3% per level. The Hitch? It reflects the damage divided equally to all minions including your own. As minions die the damage levels go up.

chuck1234 January 18 2008 1:52 PM EST

Given the current anti-RoBF stance in the forums, get rid of the RoBF [allow one free reinking to any desired tat], and re-introduce the Cloak of Balrog Flame as a supporter item, suitably nerfed :)

No evasion effect, no DD damage prevention, just the plain and simple Balrog flame effect which can be put at some fixed range.

[RX3]Cotillion January 18 2008 1:54 PM EST

That's pretty sweet L. Gasp.

Lord Bob January 18 2008 1:54 PM EST

I'm with Chuck.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 18 2008 1:57 PM EST

CB t-shirt 1% DD with each + enhancement
GoP Glaive of pain base damage of 300 but fixed x.

QBsutekh137 January 18 2008 1:59 PM EST

Tank Shield. Stops a percentage equal to its + of all physical damage, does not count as any other sort of AC (in other words, the + does not count as magic-stopping). Same penalties as the Mage Shield. Stacks in the layers the same as Mage Shield. Same upgrade curve as Mage Shield.

Amulet of Precision. Reduces ALL randomness in ALL things for whole team (so anyone on team can wear it). No penalties. Ranges for rewards, damage reductions, damage ranges...all reduced. Same values are executed (on average) but with smaller mins and maxes. A nice artifact for people doing research, or people who just want to see what more consistency does for things like exceeding ToE thresholds or overcoming the flat DD reduction in RoBFs.

AdminShade January 18 2008 2:04 PM EST

Make it something which can be used in addition to our current items.

i.e. an extra armor part, perhaps a ring which gives a small bonus to something...

Tezmac January 18 2008 2:07 PM EST

+1 on Tank Shield

QBRanger January 18 2008 2:10 PM EST

"How about An Elven Amulet?

Cannot be upgraded, but adds +1 to all equipped elven gear (EG, EC, EB, EH, ELB, and ELS). "

We certainly need more evasion just as much as Christopher Walken needs more Cowbell. <sarcasm>

BTW, Welcome back Max.

chuck1234 January 18 2008 2:12 PM EST

Building up on my earlier Cloak of Balrog Flame idea, here are two other reasons why it should fit "Vet Pride":

1] The unique Balrog flame damage [invulnerable to AMF and GA retaliation] is available in a supporter item.
1] It'll now be available to everyone with any other tattoo.

Of course, you'll have to get rid of the RoBF before that, not just nerf it ;)

TrueDevil [AAA] January 18 2008 2:13 PM EST

I'm all for CB-T shirt. Increases DD of course. :)

Blarg January 18 2008 2:18 PM EST

reintroduction of the CB T would be fantastic.

A "I"ve been here forever" sign for CB1, can be the same for CB2 :P

Lord Bob January 18 2008 2:22 PM EST

"Amulet of Precision."

Keep the name, but have it add + on all weapons. Evasion nerf.

Poison Dagger - same stats and upgrade curve as the Dagger, but poisons the target, which causes residual damage every round after. Subsequent hits increase the residual damage later inflicted. Poison damage is not subject to AC, Endurance, Protection, but the attack itself of course is.

deifeln January 18 2008 2:33 PM EST

I'd like a GoP type item.

Non-upgradeable weapons with very high base values and low NW are great for vets who want to do an NCB or help out a newb. Most importantly, this would make the item NONESSENTIAL which is necessary if it is truly never to be released again. Additionally, this would be made better by an absurdly low NW, allowing for low xfer fees and usage on very low MPR characters.

QBRanger January 18 2008 2:35 PM EST

Well one of the differences between CB1 and CB2 supporter items is that in CB2, they are supposed to be useful throughout the game.

A GoP type of item runs contrary to what Jon envisioned supporter items in CB2.

Last Gasp January 18 2008 2:36 PM EST

Have we ever had ranged ammo as a support item?

Love the poison thing...

Poison Arrows 5x1 for less damage but as a supporter item they never run out and the + is the percentage of poisoning. You could merge regular arrows into them (for a price) and then visit the BS to bump the +

AdminNightStrike January 18 2008 2:37 PM EST

How about a commorative coin? It would not be an equippable item... just a coin that we get.

What the heck.. have it give a bonus to forging or something if you have one in your inventory

AdminNightStrike January 18 2008 2:38 PM EST

commemorative*

QBJohnnywas January 18 2008 2:38 PM EST

I'm with deifeln actually. I think the last item before we go into a new phase should be something non-essential, a marker of sorts of the passing into a new era.

Just because we've had a long string of useful and more supporter items doesn't mean that this one has to be.

And having something that doesn't add to any particular kind of strat seems right for this point in time.


Remember - Jon is asking for something that says 'vet pride'....

horseguy001 [Battle Royale] January 18 2008 2:40 PM EST

I like Rangers idea of a shield. Small amount of protection, with no penalties to DD or UC. Something can help everyone just a little bit.

QBsutekh137 January 18 2008 2:41 PM EST

That's why I mentioned a randomness reducer -- some of us vets like doing research. *smile* And it wouldn't be that useful for anyone else... Like the artifacts in some video games that your character can buy simply to see more info or history about other items... A meta-item.

QBJohnnywas January 18 2008 2:41 PM EST

I can hear the low rumblings of a poll in the distance.......

drudge January 18 2008 2:43 PM EST

CB-T! CB-T!!!! CCBBBBB-T!!!!!

drudge January 18 2008 2:44 PM EST

johnnyways, thats just my stomach you hear after all these cups of coffee

Wizard'sFirstRule January 18 2008 2:47 PM EST

How about "Healthy Puppy"? I mean we are all "vets" now.
Jokes aside. I would like a ring that helps all teams. maybe something that is not transferable. (that takes forging out of it)
+protection sounds like a good plan. give it a steep forging cost and a lowish PR, so that we can put it on without much cost, but can't make it too good. Just a bonus for vets.

yoyo January 18 2008 2:49 PM EST

There are a number of items I have been thinking about that I believe would be a great addition to the game. All of them are weapons, though.

A pikeラtwo-handed weapon that gives a base 20AC (or something like that) It can have a low base damage. A bonus to the wall players.

A staffラreduces the amount of AMF backlash damage by 1 % per enchant. Does not reduce the affect of AMF. Great item for mages who do not wan to pwn themselves.

A wandラreduces the affect of all damage mitigation for DD by the 1 % per enchant.

An orbeラreduces the affect of DM on all of the minions casted spells by 1% per level of enchant.

A melee weapon that increases the + to hit on all ranged attacks

A ranged weapon that increases the + to hit of all melee attacks.

The problem with these types of weapons is how they would fit into WA. I think there would be a way to use some kind of NW multiplier for so they would be useful but not too overpowered. The mage/enchanter items would also give a mage team something to spend WA on

Even if these items are not used, or the an item that gives the same bonuses, I think it would be great to add some mage type items. Not all mage weapons need to increase spell damage or decrease AMF to be useful. I came up with 2 rather quickly, and I am sure if more people thought about new mage type weapons more could be generated.

The more types of items there are in the game the more depth there will be to game play and I think that would make most of the CB community happier.

Thanks for your time.

Xenko January 18 2008 2:57 PM EST

If this item is to be for all the vets, then it should not be specific to any one strategy, as you would then only be including vets who have "blah" in their strategy. Thus, the item cannot give a bonus to DD, or any other strategy specific stat.

I also feel that if this is essentially a badge of honour to all vets, it should only give a minor bonus so that it is not an essential piece of equipment, and that new players won't feel at a disadvantage. Along the same lines, it should not have any penalties so that every vet can wear it without it affecting their strategy.

And from that last slot, if it is a vet pride, it would be cool to have a new slot just for this piece so that, once again, every vet can wear it without sacrificing their strategy.

Based on these conditions, I feel that something like the Ring of Protection is a great idea (or something else along the same lines, but different bonus, AC maybe?). The item gives a small bonus to everyone, with no penalties, and can be put in a special "ring" equipment slot.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 18 2008 3:06 PM EST

rings have often been used to commemorate milestones and events. we have also, in cb land, asked for jewelry slots. i think the ring of protection idea is wonderful as it would help any strat but not necessarily be required. it also doesn't mean choosing between it and a current item.

the shield would also be great! i do think it might benefit mages more, but i guess it would also help enchanters and most teams would have one of them at least somewhere in the team.

i really just like the idea of a ring more though.

QBRanger January 18 2008 3:18 PM EST

And if a ring or new shield is introduced, please do not make it a power version that cannot be used with a tattoo.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 18 2008 3:19 PM EST

exactly my thoughts ranger, it would be great if we could all wear our new toys proudly!

AdminG Beee January 18 2008 3:20 PM EST

An Amulet of CB Togetherness:

Increases the clan hug bonus by 1% to all in your team providing everyone is wearing one :)

Hug Me

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] January 18 2008 3:25 PM EST

The ring of protection is the item I'd like best. Suitable to anyone, and to idea of equipping it in a seperate slot is awesome.

However, "Ring of Protection", while appropriate to describe how the item works, does not sound like "vet pride" and "freaking awesome". It sounds like "wimpy mage" :P

"Ring of Carnage" (Or anything Carnage) is what it should be called, nothing else. The name of the item is just as important as it's effects, to underline it's importance to the people who will wield it! It sounds like "ROAR", and that's the point, in my opinion.

It's the start of a new era for this game. Maybe even as important as the death of CB the 1st. Whatever the item, make it so it spells BANG!

And don't forget to send me a copy :)

QBJohnnywas January 18 2008 3:27 PM EST

Ash....go check the first entry on the post.....'something' of Carnage is definitely what I think it should be called!


......Pants Of Carnage!!!

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] January 18 2008 3:29 PM EST

That's where I realized it should be named as such, JW :)

ROAR!

QBJohnnywas January 18 2008 3:30 PM EST

ROAR indeed!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 18 2008 3:37 PM EST

I agree that a new item slot would be the niftiest way to do this, however that seem like a bit much for something that just serves to set vets apart from FB users...

QBRanger January 18 2008 3:40 PM EST

Fine,

Ring of Carnage.

Base AC 0 (+10) NW 1.495M

Increases all types of damage on wearing minion by 10%. Can be used with a tattoo.

Not upgradeable like the AoI.

Usable only by characters created before Feb 1, 2008.

chuck1234 January 18 2008 3:47 PM EST

also, that increased damage is not retaliated by AMF or GA :)

yoyo January 18 2008 3:48 PM EST

What if the ring is not sell able or transferable except to one of your own minions. If it really is a badge for "old timers" then it should probably stay with the original people. Otherwise as people leave there will be a diminished few who can use it and then it may actually be more then intended.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] January 18 2008 3:48 PM EST

Usable only by characters created before Feb 1, 2008....

Just make it so users who created their account before that date can use the ring. Or else if I unretire all of my current chars, I'll be stuck with a useless item :(

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 18 2008 3:53 PM EST

I think restrictions on who can use it are a little silly, if someone wants to spend the money or sell a one time item I can't see coding a restriction on that...

I think it should be name related to passing from the second age of cb into the third.

drudge January 18 2008 3:54 PM EST

gross G. i motion that G's animated huggy face.gif be stricken from the record.

Mojo Patroneus [My2ndClan] January 18 2008 4:01 PM EST

I mentioned this previously, but how about Reflective Plate that has AMF built in? It should be tough to forge (think HoD) or blacksmith only; with the % of DD reflected being based off the enchantment level?

As an additional drawback, if needed, ED spells would have a % of their effects 'reflected' off the wearer into nothingness (lost).

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] January 18 2008 4:02 PM EST

one word: Pants!!!!

miteke [Superheros] January 18 2008 4:10 PM EST

It should be something that all characters can use, so mage or tank specific items are out. The Ring of Carnage is a bit much. I don't think it would be fair to have an item that adds 10% to damage only we can have and which does not take up a slot. Same with the ring of protection. Make it an amulet and it's more fair, unless you plan on making ring slots useful to the new players later.

How about a Badge of Honor - Gives more money rewards for BOTH attacker and defender. Kinda makes everyone want to attack and beat the vets, which is how it should be :) A hat of honor or some slotted item would work too.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] January 18 2008 4:23 PM EST

like i said many time, a weapon for mages

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 18 2008 4:24 PM EST

whatever the item is could it also come with a VET tag in front of our names? would that be too much?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] January 18 2008 4:25 PM EST


Pants indeed! Though I'm fine with a split skirt, if it comes to that.

Or!

The Amulet of Carnage with Proper Pronouns! You know what it does! It allows us to specify character gender when equipped. It needs a downside? Fine! "Side effects may include gynecomastia and/or testicular atrophy".

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 18 2008 4:26 PM EST

or our tag could be VP since jon wanted something "that says "vet pride." :)
"

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 18 2008 4:27 PM EST

emasculated once again by bast!

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] January 18 2008 4:30 PM EST

Or get "vet" to show where "supporter" and "QB" show on your user page.

Templar January 18 2008 4:30 PM EST

bring back the CB T-Shirt!
Yes!

...another vote for the ring idea?

chuck1234 January 18 2008 4:31 PM EST

perhaps that "vet" badge can be shown in some nifty colour

{cb1}Linguala January 18 2008 4:39 PM EST

How bout an item for forgers only?
The eye of true heritage: Forgers who own this item, can downgrade forgeable items.

That would also mean you need an item on which that would make sense.
Weapon: The weapon of true attachment: This weapon adds ST if the x on it is higher(in terms of NW) than the + and DX if the + has more forged into it.

Eventually, at some point when the weapon is becoming too big, you could downgrade either the x or the + to get the influence you want.

The eye of true heritage is only activated for forgers who forged over 75m NWin the past year. And doing so deducts from your NW forged(till you get under 75m).
Items that have been downsided by this way, can later be reforged at double efficiency by forgers who have already forged 75m and who own The eye of true heritage.

I know, the example I've given is bad, but I'm sure with more thought put into it, it could add alot of more depth into this game.
--------------------------
--------------------------
On the idea of the rings, I wanted to add the following:
Normal rings(like lesser tattoos) are made with 1 substance.
Exquisite rings(like normal tats) have a ring with a stone(like diamonds) embedded in it.

I forgot how the ring with the evasion was explained, so read this back in the post it was made in. That's the normal ring.
Exquisite rings are fitted with a stone. The stone itself also adds a certain stat depending on the color of the stone.
Blue stone adds a player chosen skill.
Red adds a player chosen offensive enchantment
Green adds a player chosen defensive enchantment
Yellow adds a random skill(once set, it can never be reset except by use of the eye of true heritage)
Black adds a random offensive enchantment(once set, it can never be reset except by use of the eye of true heritage)
White adds a random defensive enchantment(once set, it can never be reset except by use of the eye of true heritage)
Rainbow colored stone adds a certain % to the DD spell trained.

All of these stones and the rings themselves are forgeable (and deforgeable) only.

{cb1}Linguala January 18 2008 4:44 PM EST

sorry for double post, but i need to recitify something:

Exquisite rings are fitted with a stone. The stone itself also adds a certain stat depending on the color of the stone.
Blue stone adds a player chosen skill.
Red adds a player chosen offensive enchantment
Green adds a player chosen defensive enchantment
Yellow adds a random skill
Black adds a random offensive enchantment
White adds a random defensive enchantment
Rainbow colored stone adds a certain % to the DD spell trained.

It's not the yellow, black and white rings that can be reset, but the blue, red and green ones. Of course, still by use of the eye of true heritage.
Yellow, black and white rings are set once and for all.

Maelstrom January 18 2008 4:47 PM EST

De-facer: extra damage/protection against facebook-accounts?

;)

QBJohnnywas January 18 2008 4:50 PM EST

How about the Mushu Option, an item that does.....absolutely nothing, taking up a new slot that could have been better utilised by pants, or a staff, or something.


Or The Todd Advantage. A tattoo that instantly makes you 'overpowered'. Even more so than the RBF.

Levon [Clocked Out] January 18 2008 4:54 PM EST

creating an item "of purity" makes sense to tame "retaliation" as spellcasters tame "feedback"

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 18 2008 4:56 PM EST

jw, for the todd option could it also make you quit the game once a week?

Frost January 18 2008 5:05 PM EST

I want something that adds to MONIES!!! every + enchantment adds to 1% more $ rewards and it can only be worn by accounts created before said date so it truelly is just for vets and not just another item people selll for USD. We could call it Friends Of Carnage or something :) F.o.C.

Lochnivar January 18 2008 5:19 PM EST

Amulet of Humility:
Reduce's a character's PR by 3% per +, blacksmith only.
Fairly steep upgrade curve but say hello to fight rewards that DON'T start with a - (of course the higher up you are the less this will help)
The amulet must be equipped in order to gain the benefit.

or,

The opposite of Frost's idea
A ring/amulet that reduces a team's EXP gains at the cost of cash rewards.

Colonel Custard January 18 2008 5:25 PM EST

Second to the Badge of Honor. Makes sense, and doesn't just favor vets, because it benefits new players when they start beating on us, too!

Colonel Custard January 18 2008 5:35 PM EST

Wait! I still second it, but with an amendment:

We do not get a direct increase to our rewards due to us wearing it. We get an increase due to the person we fight wearing it. I.e., a new player could attack me, lose, and I wouldn't get a boost to that $/XP reward, but I would if one of the players currently existing were to do so.

So, mostly, it would increase rewards based on whether or not the person who lost the battle is wearing one, while the winner doesn't have to be.

Since this obviously makes it without benefit for you to purchase and equip it yourself, and it only helps other people, it should be a mandatory veteran item. Yeah.

NSFY January 18 2008 5:59 PM EST

[P]Mitt January 18 2008 6:53 PM EST

I personally would like a supporter option that if we joined before XX date, then our name would be in bold, or in another color, or with a star next to it, or something of that nature. (Or with options which allows us to change the color of our name as it appears.

Not an item that is really useful, just something we can distinguish ourselves with in the forums or in chat.

Tyriel [123456789] January 18 2008 7:03 PM EST

"Sword of Ages"

Base damage 60, same upgrade prices as VB.

For every day you've been a member of CB longer than your opponent, you gain 0.005% to your cash rewards for every enemy killed with this weapon.

So if you've been around for 3 years longer (since the start of CB), killing 5 enemies with it will net you a ~25% bonus to cash rewards.

Useful to oldies, but not to new members. :)

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] January 18 2008 7:37 PM EST

PeterGriffin January 18 2008 8:02 PM EST

What about some sort of booster for the Jig, or something that would be more useful like a familiar booster.

For example some sort of amulet that gives a % bonus to HP for all familiars, and for DD familiars it gives a % bonus to their DD, and for the jig a % bonus to the ST and DX.

Sorry this probably doesn't sound very good but it is a part idea, not the complete picture but an idea.

colonel [penny pincher] January 18 2008 8:08 PM EST

count me in for a CBT real and virtual if you please.

TheHatchetman January 18 2008 8:11 PM EST

""I was here before FB" supporter item ideas"

Should be non-tradable... We don't need someone starting 6 months from now and wearing an item that says "I was here before FB"...

Aside from that, I have no strong feelings towards what the item may be. Though I like the idea of giving it it's own slot so that users can wear it without changing their strat...

I wouldn't advise having it give AC, as much as i would love a new piece of AC gear... It would make my VB-weilding heavy tank even more uber, then it would become common, forcing me to change strats again...

Herbstwind [The Knighthood] January 18 2008 8:26 PM EST

how about a bonus (whether its protection or something else) that depends on the 'age' of the character wearing the ring (i like the idea) - maybe something like 1% protection for each year the character is in existence or 2% per 100.000 battles fought or something like that

spydah January 18 2008 8:33 PM EST

Badge of...
FoD
ProtestBoy
BA?
Bot Checks?

*insert funny remembrance here*
VP

Have VP/-Vet/Yo Mama after ones name would be neat, prefixes being pretty much taken already.

Hyrule Castle January 18 2008 8:50 PM EST

a weapon for mages to sink their cash into

pretty please :)

Something ...

Hyrule Castle January 18 2008 8:55 PM EST

or how about a tattoo meat shield?

It trains 100% level into hp...and 100% into PL....So it takes any damage that would hit you ^.^

And...make it like the JKF...cannot be inked to so that people with gynormous tats cannot just ink to it and have a great supporter item :)

AdminNightStrike January 18 2008 8:58 PM EST

Please be careful when making something that separates people into groups of "new" and "old". Player exclusion is not a way to develop a growing player base.

Thanatos January 18 2008 9:10 PM EST

Spot for badges meaning unlimited slots veteran
put them on a the character not the minions.

A veteran badge for sure 1% a cross the board

Not trade-able or sell-able

maybe an economic badge to get small money increase
forging badge for forgers
archery badge
sword play
time in game
weapon mastery
spell mastery
defence mastery
familiar mastery

Daz January 18 2008 9:15 PM EST

Blender hat. It's like one of those lame propeller hats, but with a nifty blender instead. I have no idea what it would do, I just liked the idea of having a blender on a hat.
Partly because people were saying, "Thing of Carnage".

Flamey January 18 2008 9:30 PM EST

I don't think this item should meddle with the rewards of the game. Because if a newer player is trying to take Ranger's spot, and burns all of his BA like Ranger, gets the same clan bonus, then he'll be losing ground because Ranger has this item which increases his rewards.

That said, I think Ring of Protection is a great idea, but why not just call it Ring of Honour instead as to give it a better name.

AdminJonathan January 18 2008 9:56 PM EST

> Player exclusion is not a way to develop a growing player base.

Absolutely. I hope there's no attitude of "oh, you're just a FB user" to new players.

Hopefully we can do something fun for those who have been here a while without encouraging that.

GummyBear January 18 2008 10:25 PM EST

So are the 2007 CB Tshirts the item?

Lumpy Koala January 18 2008 10:27 PM EST

i got 6 of them :) in a row

Flamey January 18 2008 10:29 PM EST

10!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 18 2008 10:30 PM EST

10 here too... can't wait to see what it does!

TheHatchetman January 18 2008 10:32 PM EST

"I hope there's no attitude of "oh, you're just a FB user" to new players."

I don't think it would be like that, but I'd imagine some would act like some the CB1 players do toward us CB2ers... Not mean, or agressive, but until ya prove yourself, they can be condescending at times...

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 18 2008 10:34 PM EST

Thanks Jon!

{CB1} DeFiAnT [Jago] January 18 2008 10:35 PM EST

Thanks Jon.....Hail to the Vets!!

AdminNightStrike January 18 2008 10:37 PM EST

I got ten chatmails for the shirts... but I would imagine that my inventory is too full for them to appear.

j'bob January 18 2008 10:42 PM EST

wow. i look very striking in my new shirt!
THANKS JON!

][Army][MrWizard06][ January 18 2008 10:53 PM EST

woot thanks Jon

A 2007 CB T-shirt [1]

Underage Drinking January 18 2008 10:54 PM EST

lol this is awesome, tho i would of paid 6 bucks for an original hehe, but since this is limited edition gear, i <3

cb-t is non-upgradeable(neither forging or blacksmith)
grants 1 ac
0 to bonuses
and it fits over everything

<3

TheHatchetman January 18 2008 10:57 PM EST

one size fits all ftw!

Mojo Patroneus [My2ndClan] January 18 2008 11:09 PM EST

LOL thanks Jon. When can we start to write wiki entries for this? ;-)

QBRanger January 18 2008 11:22 PM EST

Thanks for the T-Shirt, but you did not have to tell me 10 times about it. I would have read just the first !!!!

J/K

Flamey January 18 2008 11:22 PM EST

does it count as a supporter item?

AdminJonathan January 18 2008 11:56 PM EST

> I'd imagine some would act like some the CB1 players do toward us CB2ers

I hate that crap :(

TheHatchetman January 19 2008 12:03 AM EST

not a fan of it myself, but doesn't take long to get within their graces... Usually the only ones who stick with such a "hazing" ritual are immature, and easily impressed :P

AdminNightStrike January 19 2008 12:10 AM EST

"doesn't take long to get within their graces"

I hope I'm never within the good graces of those who put on that attitude.

Lord Bob January 19 2008 12:23 AM EST

So does it do anything special?

TheHatchetman January 19 2008 12:25 AM EST

It grants ! extra AC... Great for any minion trying to maximize AC, as some are paying northwards of 1-2m per point. 1 free AC saves a good chunk ^_^

2 if ya name it, even better.

Lord Bob January 19 2008 12:26 AM EST

It has it's own slot! Yay!

[P]Mitt January 19 2008 2:17 AM EST

Thanks Jon for the amazing game that has consumed me since 2003!

I still think you should add in an extra line under
A member of Carnage Blender 2 since [our CB2 join date].

(if you still have the data)
with..
A member of the Carnage Blender community since [our CB1 join date].

For the vets ... of the vets... just for old times' sake :)

GnuUzir January 19 2008 3:21 AM EST

Ahhhh now even I feel special =)

Its very simple, Mitt. Just go to the Blacksmith, and name the item as you wish :)

ActionAction January 19 2008 3:38 AM EST

Although not a 'vet', I absolutely adore this idea. :). At least now I can APPEAR to be one with this nifty little shirt ^__^.

chuck1234 January 19 2008 3:54 AM EST

I thought Mitt was referring to the CB T-shirt when he made that suggestion, now on reading it again I find that he's referring to the detail on the player info page; but, I think he can apply this idea to solve that problem, simply name the CB T-shirt with the information you wish to provide :)

QBJohnnywas January 19 2008 4:23 AM EST

Nice! Even fits over a tattoo! And with no effort on our parts other than logging on!

The lazy supporter item!

Little Anthony January 19 2008 5:05 AM EST

Serious! I would be (in my own opinion) that CB-Jeans' 07 or CB-pants would be way better than CB- T shirt 2007. Veterans have pants and new players does not. How awesome is that ? :P

IndependenZ January 19 2008 5:21 AM EST

I love it! Reminds me of the 2003 T-shirt, and gets me into the elite group of people who were here before the Facebook-mayhem started :D

*tips his hat to Jon*

AdminShade January 19 2008 8:23 AM EST

And thanks for making it have it's own slot! :D

{CB1}Sparticus [Screwed Justice] January 19 2008 1:58 PM EST

I think its great, even though i have no idea whats goin on with this FB stuff. guess i was gone alittle to long ;)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] January 20 2008 1:25 AM EST


Jon, what were the distribution criteria on the CBT?

SNK3R January 20 2008 1:35 AM EST

Bast: I would guess that since there are "332 active users from the past 7 days", that it was probably from this (with a minus random factor? :P), considering there were 288 given out.

SNK3R January 20 2008 1:36 AM EST

If you also take into consideration the "32 new users in the past 24 hours", then it drops you to about 300, which is a reasonable assumption from the number of CB T-shirts given out.

Then again...you could just wait for Jon to answer. ;)

AdminNightStrike January 20 2008 3:08 AM EST

Probably supporters...

Godpanda January 20 2008 3:12 AM EST

As to what Jon said earlier about hating when CB1ers treat CB2ers differently.

You may think you're in their graces. But I notice that if you weren't a part of the CB1 group, you are not as easily brought into the groups. And all you CB1 people can deny it, but it's just how it is, lol. the [CB1] Tag alone proves that.

AdminNightStrike January 20 2008 3:17 AM EST

Weren't you in CB1? So it must not be *all* those CB1 players....

I wouldn't say so... unless he took a 8 month hiatus from the game.

AdminNightStrike January 20 2008 4:36 AM EST

Fair enough... but the point is that not all people from CB1 are like that.. just a handful. Hopefully, the handful of pre-facebook users is smaller still.

Max January 20 2008 4:41 AM EST

Well, being CB1 and CB2 doesn't make someone vet if they forget the whole point of a game community and what the game is supposed to be about. We should let the ideas of CB1 vs. CB2 presented here, die.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] January 20 2008 7:01 AM EST


It wasn't supporters. I thought perhaps "active users" though 7 days leaves out anyone having a brief hiatus. Thus, the question.

Jamba in da Juice January 20 2008 2:11 PM EST

i posted a forum, i mentioned maybe getting an item, i wasn't thinking just supporter but it could be, the item would be (this is also the forum name) a 'shield that doesn't decrease UC or increases UC...' , i was thinking it could be called an 'Elven Shield'.

Jamba in da Juice January 20 2008 2:13 PM EST

nvm, it's already decided, i didn't notice the t-shirt was a supporter item

You mean... like I did? I was banned from CB1, didn't even know I could play again until August, when I realized it was now CB2.

QBOddBird January 20 2008 3:33 PM EST

Oh, and I adore this item. <3 to Jon.

AdminNightStrike January 22 2008 3:40 AM EST

Why were you banned?

TheHatchetman January 22 2008 3:58 AM EST

T-Shirt isn't the supporter item, it's a commemorative item. Jon has voiced plans of releasing a new supporter item, but "FB integration is a higher priority atm" ^_^

I'm curious to see what he comes up with... I don't think any of the supporter items were expected, so I don't think he'll be using any of the ideas posted lately (though getting one of my ideas implemented would rock so hardcore! :P)...

TheHatchetman January 22 2008 4:06 AM EST

"Weren't you in CB1? So it must not be *all* those CB1 players...."

Nope, not even "most", just some... When I started playing, most of the people giving me the warmest welcomes were CB1 players.

And the CB1 tag means nothing more than a homage to a game they cherished... Unless you're saying Slayer and Gun have shown an unwillingness to cope with newer users that they somehow managed to disguise from me while they (along with a few others (most of which, CB1 players) answered my questions and offered advice where possible...)

IndependenZ January 22 2008 6:10 AM EST

OB, you got banned from CB1? *cuddles up alongside of NS*

Why?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] January 22 2008 6:13 AM EST

he did a booty dance in jon's face.
