Nothing new? (in General)


{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- June 22 2011 12:48 AM EDT

No new items, seemingly no new gameplay changes/improvements... ZzZz I'll try again in 6 months.

</3

ResistanZ June 22 2011 1:29 AM EDT

This has bothered me too. Has anyone talked to NS and Jon about the game stagnating?

Admiralkiller June 22 2011 9:28 AM EDT

WE WANT CHANGES~!!!!

AdminNightStrike June 22 2011 11:34 AM EDT

Trying to stay employed......

Zenai June 22 2011 12:03 PM EDT

Real Life Trumps Game Life every time...........

Demigod June 22 2011 12:07 PM EDT

NS, unemployment benefits mean you'd have plenty of time for coding and a much shorter commute.

AdminNightStrike June 22 2011 1:15 PM EDT

If only CB could pay......

Zenai June 22 2011 1:18 PM EDT

When I hit the jackpot on the Lotto I'll buy CB and pay you to code NS!

Quyen June 22 2011 1:32 PM EDT

cant wait till that happens :D

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] June 22 2011 2:04 PM EDT

I have a little more time for CB, but have to balance that with wedding planning. I'm going to fix the left sidebar fightfeed thing, then work on some other stuff. I wish we had a bugtracker or something to see which features people really wanted. :/

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 22 2011 2:05 PM EDT

papercuts?

QBRanger June 22 2011 2:05 PM EDT

I believe it is less that people want more features.

They want new stuff. A new item, new spell, new skill.

Something to change things up a bit like the old change months.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] June 22 2011 2:21 PM EDT

We have a few suggestions/ideas threads a couple months ago, so its not like the community hasn't discussed it already.

*Cues someone to please dig up all the threads I'm talking about*

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 22 2011 2:39 PM EDT

Ranger pretty much hit it. I would say most people want something new, not a new feature but something that actually changes gameplay.

QBRanger June 22 2011 2:42 PM EDT

Heck,

I believe even a free untrain period for a few days would breathe some life into the game.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 22 2011 2:45 PM EDT

I've wanted a system that incorporates retrains that don't cost exp into the game for a long time. My suggestion was to combine the drop system and blackmarket into a new better blackmarket system and introduce new features through there like free retrains.

Lord Bob June 22 2011 3:32 PM EDT

I would like a free retrain.

Nice.

Lord Bob June 22 2011 3:35 PM EDT

New idea: features like free retrains can be implemented into the Special Items shop for USD. More money to the developers and all that.

AdminNightStrike June 22 2011 4:50 PM EDT

More money to the host provider is more like it...

So basically, your idea is to buy things that aren't just items.. What else would you buy aside from free retrains? Maybe potions that boost stats for a time, or something similar?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 22 2011 4:52 PM EDT

Extra character slots NS.

AdminNightStrike June 22 2011 4:55 PM EDT

For the purpose of having farms, or for stockpiling inventory?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 22 2011 4:56 PM EDT

Both, and you can add an option for increased storage capacity on a char too. It was also to have more slots for tourney chars too.

Lord Bob June 22 2011 4:56 PM EDT

Consumable items was an idea tossed around back before ammo was removed.

Maybe something akin to clan rituals.

The holy grail in my book would be a way for old teams to match the growth of N*B's, since its obvious now they won't be going away, ever. This would be insanely problematic, however.

After that I'm out of ideas for right now.

Underage Drinking [Battle Royale] June 22 2011 5:18 PM EDT

buy more BA would be the best money grab( as in INCREASED CAP)

Duke June 22 2011 5:20 PM EDT

Super supportership for 40$

10 char slot 100 item limits
free char renaming
1/2 xfer fee on item and char xfer
unlimited NCB char
free retraining on the first of each month

Admiralkiller June 22 2011 5:40 PM EDT

Free retrain day=epic..It would be an exciting 1st of the month each month.

I would gladly put a few more bucks into CB for certain benefits.

Kefeck [BlackSmith] June 22 2011 5:42 PM EDT

I actually really like this idea. :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] June 22 2011 5:45 PM EDT

estiah has a pretty good setup for money. they sell like ten extra inventory slots, with no upper limit. one character slot could also be sold. that would tend to spread out the income and not really limit like the suggestion above.

they also sell titles like noble or patron that could work here as well as a battle recap that shows more stats than usual. most of these items are ten bucks.

Fishead June 22 2011 5:58 PM EDT

I'd pay for a super supportership.

ResistanZ June 22 2011 6:00 PM EDT

Sure free retrains even though I just blew through 100k MPR yesterday >_<

QBRanger June 22 2011 6:40 PM EDT

Free retrains should be very rare.

Once per year at most.

Other benefits like free renaming sound great.

Rubberduck[T] [Hell Blenders] June 22 2011 6:51 PM EDT

I agree with Ranger, unlimited free retrains would be chaos though I wouldn't be too unhappy about once every 6 months. The ability to hide your char from others during the period could be fun too.

QBRanger June 22 2011 6:54 PM EDT

Sure free retrains even though I just blew through 100k MPR yesterday >_<

I blew 200k MPR the other day. And still believe that free retrains should be very rare.

I would have them at 1 per year. For a 2 day period on the anniversary of your CB membership. Or on the 1 year anniversary of your superior membership.

But please, no more than 1 per year.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] June 22 2011 6:59 PM EDT

Black Market Remake Suggestion

AdminNightStrike June 22 2011 6:59 PM EDT

Free retraining isn't high on my list right now

Duke June 22 2011 7:04 PM EDT

free might be a bit too much but retraining at 99% sound ok.

Admiralkiller June 22 2011 8:54 PM EDT

You could always take some ideas use from us. Use the best ones and get a vote on those, then implement them. This is why I have always said there should be a forum section for ideas/suggestions. Bugs are important to fix but It's bee a long long time since anything new was done (not including rituals).

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] June 23 2011 5:18 PM EDT

I dunno why I but wrote a reply to this thread like twice and somehow migrated away from the page without ever posting it.

I like a lot of the ideas in here, plus the ones on the black market remake thread. Potions are an interesting idea, like you could have both xp and money pots that allow a boost to one or the other that would last for a few hours/days depending on the price you paid for it.

Another idea I had was to have special NCBs that you could buy and run. Something along the lines of one special ncb lasts 2-4 months longer then a regular NCB, or another one that has its BA purchasing cost set to normal (so it doesn't get 'free' BA like a nub but it will only cost the same as it would if the char didn't have an NCB bonus)

Lots of little changes like this should help generate more income for the servers/the game in general. Plus it might help people who might have not played for awhile decide to come back and try things out again.
