Quote from: SpoonA magicker is kind of like a mousetrap, the fear is the cheese. But this cheese has an AK47.
Quote from: "gfair"My bet on why the change was introduced was precisely for the reason everyone is complaining - you don't know whether the person is trying to contact is actually on or not. To us, it's an advantage, but in reality from the IMM perspective, it's a way of getting OOC information from the game code. It affects the way players make decisions to know whether a person is on or off.
QuoteIn law a man is guilty when he violates the rights of others. In ethics he is guilty if he only thinks of doing so.
QuoteAs for playability, I believe the change will actually foster more interaction. Without being sarcastic, would it really be such a bad thing to get out and about and look for your friend? Maybe while you're looking for them at their favorite hangout you'll run into some fresh new faces along the way and get involved in some of the other plotlines and interactions that are happening out in the world. Why sit in your favorite quit-spot alone and limit yourself to playing with only a couple friends? I just don't subscribe to the "it hinders the playability of the game" argument here, quite the opposite. I think people who hide themselves away and only stick around when their clique is online are denying themselves and the other roleplayers in the game the opportunity for some fantastic interactions.
Quote from: "Sanvean"Some changes were made, and I'll let the coder who made them speak (or not) to specifics. I think you will, as time progresses, find the Way significantly easier to use, particularly with experienced characters, in a way that makes it more playable and less frustrating.
Quote from: "Tiernan"Also, with the other changes made to psionics the Way should become a great deal easier to use. Contacting someone should not fail as often as it used to, for those who use the Way regularly. The drain from using the Way should also be less severe.
Quote from: "Sanvean"I suggest seeing how it works for a week and then assessing it, rather than reacting immediately. Some of those changes won't be evident immediately.
Quote from: "Tiernan"Thank you gfair, that's absolutely correct. The "You've never heard of that person." message was inherently wrong in the first place. Of course you've heard of them, you're actively trying to find them.
QuoteSome benefits may become apparent after a little more use of the new system. If everyone tries the new system for awhile and it still seems unusable, I'm sure the imms will listen to some suggestions. Everyone voicing their complaints now though, without giving it a thorough trial, may be a little premature.
