Good point about the guild buff being spammed on a server like nightmare, but with the gem cost still relatively high and most people spending gold on equips, jewels and building their characters up, the big guilds aren’t popping off the exp buffs as often as one might think.
Afk gameplay definitely needs to go, whether Nightmare and a higher RB cap are implemented or not. No one wants a leecher sucking you dry like a Capri sun for hands-free exp, and high respawn rate on mobs in areas with high mob density are promoting that big time. Changing respawn rate and/or adding an AFK timer would be nice to try to mitigate it again.
Everyone wants end game content because that’s the meat and potatoes of a game like this to actually utilize the stats and gear you worked for, but the changes in this poll are a lot easier to make than waiting for Alk to create new endgame content with a busy schedule.
Not gonna lie, stat distributions are pretty disproportionate, especially in terms of Sta/Def/Mdef and Int/Str. If you calculate end game stats, warrior and paladin will be almost unkillable due to the disproportionate amount of HP and defense you can build up, especially with a hit and run pvp style. Even now most warriors/paladins with high STA can clap your ass cheeks, run away with half HP, and heal back to full health before you see them again. This could be fixed by tweaking the damage formula again but most noobs just go full damage wizard/ranger to fast training right now regardless.
My closest guess is that there’s less than 15 players at 25 rebirths as of now. If you’re part of the majority, which is under 20 Rbs, then how will increasing the cap to 30, 35, etc. really affect you? Rebirth was uncapped before and it was a selling point of the game right before a poll was made to cap RB and casual players wanted a hard stop for those getting close to the current cap. The only difference from before is that there’s actually people capped out now. In a scenario where Nightmare server is back and the cap is raised, the players already on hard server would go occupy nightmare, and if they’re weren’t interacting with you before on hard server, what would change for you now? You could wait months or years after 1.5 to raise caps but the players with more hours put in are naturally going to be stronger with higher stats and better gear.
You guys pushing Ann vs Pug/Mia rivalry need to settle your beef or just accept the fact that having rivals in an open world mmo is a fun and healthy problem to have without badmouthing eachother on every single outlet possible. Yes, I’m biased because I’m at 25 Rbs and there’s not much of a parh forward. I could leave and Ann and join Pug and my opinion on this poll would still be the same, and those voting no will probably never even see me in the game.
