in reply to all that you have said in the replying posts. rarity items are not appealing in 2020 anymore? yeah they are not now atfer update but before they was of course. only you and a few others like to grind?, by that you mean the loyal players that had played here for along time yes, the others being noobs who make it to level 80 and then quit the game,the server was doing fine with no monitoring. slowly growing before the pandemic myself being an active player knows this, i always help new players with items. anybody who knows me in game would confirm it, i also wouldn't consider myself powerful in the game. but if its all easy to obtain everybody will get it. get bored then want new content and leave since you wont even be here to further the content, noob players come and go all the time but the old players mostly stay around and grind away for a sense of achievement. if anybody can match you with little work where is the need to grind and play to gain advantage? i dont understand how you can say we dont care for new players yet you dont care for loyal players who have played and paid lots into the server, not even enough so to ask for a poll on a big update like this, that was previously and recently turned down by a 75% against 25% poll. i agree some things should be easier to allow new players a chance, like dss has helped alot since it was so hard. preview of the exact items isn't necessary but the concept itself would help within a poll to ensure people are happy not just springing and whole new update and turning the market upside down. back to your previous point of it not being appealing? where is your information coming from since people voted against it and no further poll was made. look from what i see this is your server and you have all the right in the world to change whatever you like but please can you think of the loyal players who spend alot of time on the game and the effects this has on the people who work hard and support the server. even [SGM]tary and many other was supporting my opinion of the changer would have a massive and bad impact on the servers market and value of items which clearly undermines any work people have put into the game prior to the update. lets say you was to work hard for something and in the end it was given to everybody for 1/10 of the work and less, you say you want to help new players yet im a new ish player playing here for 8 months and my best was of making money (moonlights) was recently ruined by your crazy idea to change something for no reason, me and alot of friends had drastically cut hours down on the game to see the further crazy updates and damage to the game yes in the last 20 days people leaving? maybe that's because of 100 unpolled updates. you keep saying you get complaints and are against them but why? its the players speaking there mind and just wanting the best for the server not all are selfish, they just dont want all there work to become nothing. you also say lockdown let alot of people grind? so now you will take it all away and make it easier for the coming people (if any. you are still unsure it will work) (the merge)and to violate previous players work. again its not against new players if you value your hard work. there is alot of private servers for the lazy people all that die very fast when reaching the end goals. the others have been playing in servers like this one for a sense of acheivment and not easy to get items. dont you think people should be rewarded for their hard word and dedication? or do you think there time and effort to obtain perfect items should be matched with no effort at all? i know this is out of context but if you was training for a marathon and then somebody was using electric scooter to go past you how would you feel? but like i said it is what it is its your server what will be will be.
If you cannot read what the poll was about then you have some comprehend issue. Back in the days there was no budokan event that gave adder or changers, it was a mall event which sometimes gave also a superclass DSS. We didn't stop giving them because it was unfair either, simply i wasn't around to held those mall events lol. So pretty much half of what you wrote is either wrong or made up. I appreciate the fantasy thou.
Yes rarity is not needed to beat the contents, yet people won't play here unless they can reach perfection. And farming months to get 1 or 2 items with perfect rarity is not appealing anymore on 2020. You guys have to accept this. Only you and few others like to grind so much, the other doesn't.
kitkat12 This server is not populated, for a reason. What you find fun is not appealing to the others. Some people don't find it fun to do a run 1000 times to get a 120 armor with good rarity or rarity at all. This update doesn't mean i won't put new costumes.
For all the others:
You never cared for new players in your whole gaming life so don't even pretend you care now. What you care is that the power you had is now reachable by anyone with little effort. Thats all you care. There won't be any rollback or any change except maybe adding more items to the recipe list. There won't be any poll either because the community is so little and the forum community even smaller that the results won't bring anything to us.
The reason why we didn't announce this is to avoid the typical greedy behaviour that you all do to new or clueless players. Imagine if we showed you a preview of this update, you would all hoard exp rings and gloves at a cheap prices from clueless players.
This is the typical and so obnoxious first day of update, which happens every time we update something. It is always mostly those who are on top that complains when we add Changers to the metins, when we add more metins, when we increase the drop of DSS and what else not.
