BMVG - 09/17/08 - Mageseeker (in General)


Last Gasp September 18 2008 12:22 AM EDT

This thread is merely to publicize the item in the BLACK MARKET that currently has the most votes. If you know what the Black Market is, please go there and vote (preferably for the item with the most votes) so that we can get it spawned as rapidly as possible.

If you don't know what the Black Market is, then go to "Community" and select "Black Market" to learn.

Current high votes goes to Mageseeker with 4.

Mageseeker 4 173 97.7%

Right behind is Elven Hauberk with 3.

iBananco [Blue Army] September 18 2008 12:39 AM EDT

Do we really need to spawn another mageseeker?

Last Gasp September 18 2008 1:00 AM EDT

Doubtful... but it does have the most votes... Do we really need another EH?

Get enough in there voting for something else and I'll publicize that instead. :-) Just don't shoot the messenger (at least not with a Mageseeker)!!

untrain your DD and that won't be a problem :P

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 18 2008 5:06 AM EDT

I'll just stat right now that I will not vote for the Msk just for the sheer fact that it takes 173 votes just to spawn the damn thing... its almost bad enough that we could get 2 EB's out in the time it takes to get one msk out...

Yeah I am going to have to agree on draco on this one....and we don't even need another mage seeker.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 20 2008 2:10 PM EDT

I voted on corn ^_^

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 20 2008 2:12 PM EDT

many people have tried different versions of the bmvg and none of them are perfect. the current setup seems to be least offensive of them all.

i wonder exactly what you think withholding your votes will accomplish, it will just take longer for everyone else to spawn it and your votes will still be wasted?

if you are not part of the solution then you are likely part of the problem! if you have a better way of doing things present that.

i tend to think that the black market just needs to be scrapped entirely. it takes community support and that is something that has proven to be difficult to maintain for any amount of time.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] September 20 2008 2:18 PM EDT

Ah so under your philosophy, anything that proves difficult we should just give up and scrap? In that case, I quite college xD

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 20 2008 2:19 PM EDT

you guys are the ones quitting, it would seem. i still vote with the guide. : )

what is your solution?

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] September 20 2008 2:21 PM EDT

Simple! Vote for the corn :D

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 20 2008 2:24 PM EDT

because the mageseeker is too difficult so you just quit? ; )

we come full circle, no?

Warbringer September 20 2008 2:26 PM EDT

I think it is more that not many people actually want a mageseeker.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 20 2008 2:27 PM EDT

I just don't think with it taking so many votes just to spawn one item is even worth the try... it takes what... almost 2 weeks for the item to be spawned and that's with everyone that is active voting on the item Twice...

Why not just scrap any item that is over say 125 votes and just vote in anything else that has enough votes. We have been through the entire voting process on some of the bigger vote count items and it does take weeks at times to get it to spawn. I just don't want to waste my time voting on a item that takes that long to spawn.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] September 20 2008 2:28 PM EDT

Nope...because
1. We already have a lot of them, there was one in auctions like 3 days ago.

2. Our votes could go to better use getting items that we need more of and have higher auction prices. A corn is like 2.7-3.2 or something around there where as the bow is lower than a mill.

3. We don't want to hear the mages cry more ;)

DoS [Demon Forging] September 20 2008 2:34 PM EDT

Going to have to say no the MsK as well

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 20 2008 2:39 PM EDT

"I just don't want to waste my time voting on a item that takes that long to spawn."

yet you will waste your vote on a non-bmvg item. then hope that others follow your lead. it seems to be working for some.

the real downside though is that each time we have one of these tantrums regarding how the guide works, we lose people who just get tired of the drama. soon there will not be enough people left to spawn any but the smallest items in the times allotted.

it just makes me sad that there is really only one thing in the game that we all need to come together on to be successful and we fail continually at that.

Hi, I know that this is probably stupid question, but as the mageseeker attacks the minion with the highest dd spells, does that mean if you face a team with no dd spells, it will just attack anyone, or does it not fire at all?

Last Gasp September 22 2008 7:37 PM EDT

It then fires on the front facing minion. Question is... does it ignore the CoI on that too?

At some point do we accept that we aren't going to be able to spawn this thing and move on?

In the last two and a half days or so we've just been treading water.

3D September 28 2008 10:19 PM EDT

Go corn!

3D September 28 2008 10:23 PM EDT

"It then fires on the front facing minion. Question is... does it ignore the CoI on that too?"

AoI, not CoI, is the "question" I think.

Last Gasp September 28 2008 11:47 PM EDT

We wait until next Monday afternoon... with three voting chances we see if we can spawn it. If not, then we abandon it for the next highest vote item. Of course, if those "protesting" were to have voted for the Msk we'd be at 91 and well on our way to spawning it tomorrow.

Gotta love pointless protests... just means we waste all of our time for the next 8 days.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 29 2008 12:18 AM EDT

"In the last two and a half days or so we've just been treading water."

perhaps that is because you voted on the corn? ; )

I am a little confuse why we are still voting for a mageseeker. It has been 2 weeks and there is a total of 170 votes in the black market and it takes 173 to spawn the mageseeker so even if every single person voted for it, it still wouldn't spawn.

Last Gasp October 2 2008 12:04 AM EDT

It is what it is... we give it through next Monday...

the 17th when this started was mid-week, so many of those votes from that Monday were lost to the previous item.

It's a pity people can't all get on board a vote and get it done.

Last Gasp October 2 2008 12:08 AM EDT

Beyond that it's certainly not helpful to the point of this thread to split the vote openly and on purpose - that way nobody really wins. We all become losers in this exchange... but then I suppose that's the point eh? Better sour grapes and we all lose than a little teamwork.

What say we just drop the whole BMVG thing and let the Black Market go to Anarchy... That way we can have weeks of losing.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 2 2008 12:40 AM EDT

i would say let draco or elite be in charge of it for awhile! they seem to have it all figured out. ; )

So, are we still going on the Mageseeker?

Wizard'sFirstRule October 7 2008 8:01 AM EDT

this system currently is rewarding people for spliting votes. By voting on the item you want, you increase its vote and makes it more likely that it is the next item spawn.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] October 10 2008 5:27 PM EDT

it would appear that last gasp is done with the bmvg. i would like to thank him for all the work he put into it and for a job well done!

Last Gasp October 11 2008 2:54 AM EDT

Thanks Dudemus!

Of course Kudos go out to those who went before... [RX3]Entreri comes to mind - who worked much harder to make it work.

3D October 11 2008 3:01 AM EDT

Your work will be missed!
I don't know what to vote on now.
