While I don't see the problems with incentives for raiding/PKing, the fact is that people will quickly get bored if the core mechanic is not fun. We have plenty of incentives already.
Let me list...

Ah, apologies, I was under the impression it ran at a higher frame rate. It's obviously an impressive feat that iEra lags as little as it does when it has thousands of players at a time. Though I do...

From what I understand (Andy could comment on this a lot more than I), iEra is coded quite a bit differently. I know for a fact it runs higher than 20 FPS, which is already a huge difference both...

a not very important announcement

Hi all,
This is probably a bit vain to have a forum thread about it, but I wanted to make a quick one just to announce my resignation so people who don't log on much also know.
It's been a long...

Hey guys, sorry I wasn't more active in this thread from the start.

Yep, well, congrats to Cloyd. I'm lucky enough to not have to address weapon concerns any more. I'll make a full announcement in another thread, but to address Godzilla's concern, someone in another...

I will never use street prices of guns as a reliable indicator of a weapon's balance. Can it be used as a very loose metric? Sure. But as I've seen dozens of times (Mp7, para-tactical, ARG, Ares...

The idea behind this was simple and twofold.
1. Implement a new spar system so we could (soon) release an "MVP-shop" or even gang point shop for sparring. If we based it on the old ranking system,...

Yeah, so everything has been fixed. I nerfed the SL86 guns, the Big Lick, etc.

Correction: I said this gun is worth 1.2M, just like any other "God-tier" gun. You got the 300k from me saying I see it as Sg552 (900k) + grenade launcher feature (worth ~300k).


This is really...
