  1. Thats an internal issue of the "public". You know for a fact that people from other guilds are willing to help you out. If Euro timezone in the "public" cant muster the numbers, talk to your buddies from the US timezone if one of the weekly raids should go to Euros with the help from other guilds and you have your "fix". This issue has little or nothing to do with an accidental or deliberate disruption to the raidrotation.
  2. As far as the Terms of service and the Eula are concerned, there are no issues. As Arthur pointed out, this is not a matter the Staff will get involved with any further then providing informations to concerned parties. However, think this through please. Right now every player has a place in the rotation and the raidleaders have the comfort of knowing that they can set times for thier gang to get the most participation out of it. If we, as a community, step down into the realm of "law of the jungle" again, a good bunch of people will not participate in a raidevent for months. The rotation as I see it, is far from perfect but it keeps the "peace" on Sunrise well. The officership of the larger playerenteries know eachother and are friends for the most part. If we have to "convince" a new guild that the rotation is a good idea, its not beyond me to log a sixpack in to do so. Peace is just a prelude to war.
  3. To 1. and 2. The White Lightin' comes with four equip positiv (equip) and one (activate) effect. The RoadRunner Mk. IX comes with four equipbuffs and one negativ (equip) effect. I am pointing at the Increase Ship Signature effect here. Which, only by few people is considered a good thing. So at this point, as raw comparison, you look at +5 for the Lightnin and 4-1 for the RoadRunner. Lets dig a little deeper: Effect: Lightning RoadRunner Factor taking the Lightning as Base TurboWarp(A) 750 / TurboWarp 901 748 (995) 83%/110,4% Warp Charge 50% 50% (66%) 100%/124% Increase Speed 170 / Reduce Warp Cost 90% 75% (100%) 83%/ 111% Increase Signature / 30% Looking at the proposed change to the Lightnin' and setting Turbo warp to 1100: the factor for the Roadrunner would change to 68% and 90,4% Now lets do an assesment of the proposed change as such. Its tiny, not a big deal in itself. You would get 199 more warpspeed out of it. Players would get a kick out of breaking 9000 warp on a Terran Scout. It would not create an "uberitem" with gamechanging properties and in the great scheme of players maxing out warpspeed on a Scout be less of a 3% increment. So... The question would be: Why am I opposed to lobby for such a change with the DEVteam and expect to run head first into a brick wall if I tried? With english as a 2nd language, let me try to explain to the best of my ability. The item is "not out of sync" with the rest of the items of the respectiv level. It is unique, non-manufacturable and takes time to aquire but it saves you the need for a level 8 Unicore Reactor and some device to increase your Ship speed (Increase Speed equip 170). You focus on one single aspect on both devices here and make it the center of your comparison. Now if the DEVteam would follow your suggestion and commit to the change, it would set an example on which the Playerbase could suggest many many changes to items they care about. To give an example: With 2 exceptions, all manufacturable Reactors have a higher recharge rate compared to the Heart of the Master. So some random vendorbought reactor does better then the boss loot of one of the five raids which require two groups? This should be changed, yes? The Warp Charge on the Nitrous Oxide System is exceeded by a 200% Lazarus of the same level. This doesnt sound right. The Recharge on the 200% No1 Most Amazing Model Z reaches a higher value compared to the Dragons Dread Mail Elite IX? Really? I could do this all day and talk awesome devices down by just focusing on one single aspect in the manner you picked Warp Speed as a focus for your suggestion and it would make perfect sense taken out of the context of level, availabiliy, accessabiliy, uniqueness, tradability, class and race restrictions and so on. So if I lobby for a change or adjustment, these factors have to be adressed or I get shut down instantly. To 3: Appologies, this should not have been part of my reply. And was actually not directed at you but people who attempt Lyles mission on thier first explorer. The intention was to point, in a funny way, to a device that usually doesnt generate regret when its aquired and tested in combat. We all know germans do humor as well as a cat does barking. I am not going into the mechanics of how debuffing factors into the MOBs resistances, this would lead a bit off topic. I feel that the ChilliePopper is a musthave for every single explorer and that the benefits of this device in the highend content make up for the struggle pleasing Mr Lyle many, many times. As there is no chance to reverse the choice once its made, I would encourage everyone to consider the device with 3 unique debuffs which can not be obtained from any other device currently in game. Of cause, the choice is yours alone. There are no best choices, only combinations that work for you and your playstyle. My "Nelson Muntz" attitude towards explores choosing anything but the Chilli Popper is purely subjectiv and in the end, what do I know.. Hope gives a little insight into how I am going forth about issues and suggestions when I wear the ADVhat.
  4. The White Lightning is better then the Roadrunner Plus. Take into account that the Roadrunner as you put it here is at 200%. While I agree with the rest of the assesment, haveing some many builders providing gear at 200% is a treat by the community on Sunrise. The same holds true for many items due to the fact of Sunrise being a four year old server with many items easiely provided by the crafts, making more then 50% of the items on the database more or less obsolete. Edit: The White Lightning also doesnt deal with the negativ effect the buildable devices at level 9 suffer from. So looking at the item in comparison to l8 & l9 speedgear, its quality and trouble to obtain it, I do not see the need to lobby change here with the DEVs. Since I am sure they are reading this as well, you might see a change if my oppinion doesnt match thiers or if your can make a good counterargument to my remarks. On a very personal note: The Chillie Popper simply awesome. Even if the White Lightning would grant a speed enhancement of 5000 over the roadrunner, I would go through great length of time to point at any explorer class chooseing the Lightning over the Chillie Popper in order to do this repeatedly:
  5. Mr Woodman, The key is tradeable. While your Jenquai Defender is well able to dive into the storyline and complete the mission to manufacture the key, your Jenquai Explorer will have the key traded to. If you like to prospect for Dark Matter Ores, collect the parts for the Aquitaine Codex l1, get it made and key yourself into Ardus. From what I have experienced, the DEVteam is not -completely- without reason, you know. So the restrictions placed on content usually have means to let you work around it. Cheers, Ben
  6. I am not sure if the problem you are faceing is the one I frequently encounter. You may have dragged the gamewindow out of the visible field of your windows screen. Try this fix: hold down the “Shift” key while right-clicking the item in the taskbar, then select “Move“
  7. Forget the ADV tag on this post. This is a can of worms and in a way, Sagerat is right, it feels like beating a dead horse. The system in place works, not perfect but every player in the game has a place where they can get into a raid. That is something we should not discard without care. To Prres idea and Gunnys reply 2 post later: Without exactly knowing, it feels to me that the DEVteam has thier work planned ahead for months. So a big change in the mechanics of the PRS or randomly spawning triggers would likely involve lots and lots of coding cause a small community like ours can't argument an existing agreement? I think the time, the DEVteam invests, is better spend on other subprojects other then "fixing" this quarrel. On a sidenote, Blacklung mentioned this at some point during a PRS raid: (I hope I quote him right here) "The PRS is not a slotmachine" On a personal note, I like raiding. Its some part of the game that requires coordination, teamwork, planning - its a meaningfull and challanging activity. While I do like to box to see stuff get done, I will not hesitate to drop a character to give someone else the chance to get the experience of joining and playing together. A middle ground between "getting it done" and "get as many people as possible" the fun of actually playing together instead of along side of eachother is usually what I am aiming at. Three things, I'd like to point out. -The agreement is something players made up to help avoid strife between the guilds and create a better athmosphere in the game. That worked. However no guild or person owns a raid. -Its a "old" agreement and we all should acknowlege that the "serverlandscape" doesnt look like what it did back when it was made. If people are unhappy, its the responsability, as I see it, of the Rotation participants to send thier leadership to a meeting and talk about it. Here on the forums, it sometimes seems like its easy to make a perfectly reasonable post while completely ignoring the equally valid arguments of other posters. -If people feel the need to continue this, I'd suggest the first step would be for the public to chose a spokesperson and get a meeting going to make some sort of dialogue happen. I see this going nowhere without undelayed dialogue. Cheers, Ben
  8. I only took a quick glance at this. I think you are however looking at the wrong set of data here. The costs you are calculating this on is actually the Buy price listed on Net-7.org. The manufacturing costs would be 10x 994k and change. So roughly 10 million credits minus negotiate and faction. This in no way means that this Missionline could not use some reajustment, just that it is slightly less dramatic then 47 million credits. I will look at this again after dinner.
