  1. After three days back (I was around pre-wipe and then gone for many years) I decided that it was reasonable to donate at the same rate I pay to sub to the subscription-based MMOs I still pay for...and decided a year+ of comparable sub fees was an appropriate donation. I'm treating the game no differently than I did when I payed a sub...if it's worth playing it's worth paying (in my opinion). Now I'm fortunate to be in a position where I can donate at that level without being really concerned about it...but it doesn't require that. If the active players who don't donate today all donate even $10 then it's a start.
  2. In the brief couple of days I've been back (last time I was around was in 2011) the community has been absolutely amazing...every bit (minus my guildies of course) as good as it was in live. I'm hooked again.
  3. Thanks Woodstock...but as I noted above: My hold was basically empty, I got the fragment, the mission did not advance. Cheers
  4. Hi Moulinneuf, If I'm reading that correctly I should ignore the 14/19 status and that it's still saying to see Monty and get the fragment from him and just go straight back to Daik-ya regardless? There's no breadcrumb for the next fragment since it's hung on Monty's step.
  5. [EDIT: This issue is resolved. Thanks ] Well, a couple of hours worth of step 'n fetchit on this and at the step where I start getting fragments of the 4th Inspiration, Monty DuChamps at F7 has the mission dialogue, agrees to sell it to me, I progress the dialogue, he says it's been a pleasure doing business with me and I get a fragment...but the quest fails to advance to the next step. Am I missing something obvious?
  6. [quote name='Sleepwalker' timestamp='1319924536' post='47786'] No, it's in "starting" mode....not quite online yet. [/quote] And....it fell down again. Offline
  7. [quote name='Hatu' timestamp='1319924370' post='47784'] Up now? Getting the "EA.com can't connect" error at login when I put in my pass [/quote] No, it's in "starting" mode....not quite online yet.
  8. [quote name='Klyde' timestamp='1319921631' post='47770'] down it is... <poof> [/quote] Was more like <thunk> for me.
  9. [quote name='badkarmaxv' timestamp='1319922513' post='47772'] Its 5:04 est. Are the servers down? Still problems with the patch? I was playing online when the servers went down twice and then later in the day the mrs. was playing in the early afternoon but now as I try to log on I get that Net-7 error " Server Failed to respond to Login Attempt" but see I am the only one so far that has posted about this problem. Unless I overlooked a post so let me know whats going on. Thanks, BK [/quote] As near as I can tell, the servers are offline. I was ingame, warping, and warp target was ignored and I just sailed off into the ether. Killed the client and the server now reports as offline.
  10. [quote name='Indianajones' timestamp='1318488715' post='47262'] I have a minor in psychology and i can tell you how true kyp's statement is. my psychology 101 class has a simple puzzle and it goes like this... O T T F F _ _ and we were asked to take as long as it did and write down what came as solution to this puzzle in a piece of paper and submit it to the prof. i am trying to do the same here and asking pps interested in this subject to ponder over what this could be and reply post.... Disclaimer : I got an A+ in (behavioural)psych 101 but almost flunked (clinical) pschy 102 lol...beware...putting your brain to work could cause harm to it. [/quote] I used to mess with people using that...but always prefaced it with a little story about how some very high percentage of ten-year olds got it right and a ridiculously low percentage of adults did....and used ten letters PMd you the answer...would be a shame to put it in the thread
  11. I'm opposed to the AH concept in this game. We're all fairly isolated from each other as it is most of the time, and the only time we ever get pixel to pixel contact is builds and sales. I think it's different in a ground-based MMO where you are constantly in visual contact with other people; but even in them the AH tends to lower social interaction. Just my two cents, though
  12. [quote name='Talar' timestamp='1317129185' post='46737'] Tell me what you think. [img]http://files1.guildlaunch.net/guild/library/gallery/69145/new_ui989Pop.jpg[/img] [/quote] It's very clean and minimalistic, which appeals to me. But as long as you are playing with this, extending the hotbars, making them scalable, and being able to stack two reduced-scale rows of them would be an interesting addition as well.
  13. Well, I've read through all of this...and what I come up with is this: Someone with limited experience and no end-game experience is proposing sweeping changes to a game they have yet to fully explore or master. There is a wealth of diversity between the races and classes in this game, which is part of what attracted me in live, and kept things interesting. We all have different sweet spots, with no one so over or under powered that they cannot fulfill their role...and every class, played well, can be moderately effective at every facet of the game (mining notwithstanding, but that's a very specific skillset). The "it ain't broke, so stop trying to fix it" contingent is spot on, in my opinion. This game rising out of the ashes is and has been a labor of love. Love of a game whose time was up far too soon. That's the game the vast majority came back to play, and the OP should spend more time respecting that...and mastering the game as it is...before telling people how it should be done.
  14. With Ceres closed, I would like to see the missions for Ceres/Thule removed from the mission terminals and missions for sectors we [i]can[/i] access increased in frequency to compensate. This, of course, should apply to other closed sectors as well
  15. [quote name='Red' timestamp='1291442600' post='29231'] As I toot along in the game there is one thing I have noticed that is different from when the game was live. There is a lack of competition between the classes. On one hand the peacefulness is a great change from every other game out there but i cant help to think of the cut-throat days when the game was live. I understand the testing, and unavoidable wipe have a hand in this, but...... Do you think this will change when the game returns to 'live'? [/quote] Personally, I like the community the way it is now as opposed to Live in the cut throat department. There are still occasional snaipes back and forth, but frankly...it's enjoyable to have people mostly on good terms no matter what class/race they are.
