    Which is why so many mages choose not to even get it.

    Righto, Cya

    Ty for unbanning me so I could distribute the drops from the abby. I feel better about that - players deserved recognition in a fair way. However, if you (farjat and pollerudos) had just not made a fuss over the drop system that I decided to use, and not insisted that I scam 10 people out of a chance at drops including one member of your staff MJ[GM] (because only 30 out of the 40 were present for the foodgame) - this wouldn't have happened. When I got banned we were having a discussion AS PLAYERS in BLUE CHAT. No GM was involved in the clearing of the abby maps, we did that as players. The ban was a complete surprise to me, and so I logged AceHigh to try to justify (which I shouldn't have in global). I feel that that was the ONLY mistake I made here apart from not doing what you wanted. Oldies once scammed an abby hunt I believe and got away with it, a drop leader gets to determine what happens with the drops. I decided to do a fair system that would FAIRLY get them out to the 40 people who killed abby. And I got banned for this. Ask yourself if you really want the kind of players who will willingly scam 1/4 of their hunt to help a few. I know there's no going back from this. I've given away all of my items and returned the ones I loaned from good friends, I won't be returning. I understand this is a dictatorship, but you and your *censored*ing whiny guild farjat that did not come to clear when I asked multiple times but instead just turned up for abby and felt they were entitled to have a cry when I didn't then food drops to just a small number of them because they were on when others were not. They don't deserve a thing, and even if i stayed, they'd never be coming again. I'm seriously pissed, and you've done this to your own server so you stay and enjoy it. Maybe go make HB banana because you're heading that way. The hunt was magic for server activity, for player fun, for guild strengthening on both sides and you ruined all of that with your petty griping (and, I must add, you ended up doing what i suggested anyway but retained my punishment) - You call me untrustworthy and ban my GM but you forget to remove my web access for hours (someone really untrustworthy would have used that opportunity to ban 300 accounts - but I didn't). You've earned the effect this will have on ares - but as you've always said, you enjoy a server with just you. I made a hard but fair decision that looked out for the interests of all players on the hunt (including pollerudos). Nobody was happy with the decision (KK and NS were crying at me for including you guys who turned up late uninvited but I told them that you deserved to be in the FG as you were there for the kill) and you guys were insinuating that I was adding players to the list from KK and NS even though I'd personally rather than NS nubs didn't win the items. It's a load of shit, and at least I feel in this post I'm earning my ban.

    and yeah events with items happen ocassionaly with good things ... 2-3 times a year??... how does that doenst make sense...? i mean it has always been like that in any decent server lol... Nah maynard there was 2 ABH rep 3's and then a zerk wand/GBH from the scav event in quick succession, so I understand his point. I don't really see it as a problem, but I understand where he's coming from.

    For the final time, what drop rate is fair for top drop. How many abbys should a person have to kill to realistically get 1 rare (like xweapon)

    What drop rate on abby do you feel is fair? For say the top level of drop?
  6. Eldon

    The Official Lower Abby Drop Rate Topic

    Possibly, but tbh with the number of zerk wands/SB's dropping from hunts lately, the rates might be fair and on par with other server rare drops for time taken per player. I wouldn't be against a slight reduction though, I think 1/8 or 1/10 being a great drop would be fair. What is a fair rate do you think?

    There's a 4/10 chance of getting COMPLETELY rubbish drops just based on 20 abby kills. The best you'll get then is a mass fire strike.

    well i also would expect different from you.. i just cant belive abby dropped that and that it will still drop like that..... if you ask me it should have been changed asap. and if1/4 times a good drop is gona come , then we will have a new xel/kitem/hellfire every month.. it makes no sense ... and no this is no noob panic . I have been in several situations where ppl didnt see the obvious remember direction bows where they were first created ? .. tw 100% drop with the normal drop rate?... they were changed months after.. when there were 50+ xelimas, every1 had ms30, etc etc i see this happening in a few months if this doesnt get changed ( not that high numbers, but i would say there will be alot more of those items that ppl are supposed to get like once a year IF lucky) Well I don't disagree that the rates may be a bit high. But I don't think you can fairly determine that from one drop. I'm accepting that the drop last night is factoring a lot in your opinion. Also I honestly don't think it's going to go down weekly, not now (I'm trying to avoid that topic). If I ever get my GM back, I'll test 100 and get a really good indication of the rates so a decision can be made on the basis of good information (20 isn't really that many to test). However for the foreseeable future, that's not on the cards. I understand your concerns, I just feel they are a bit premature, you understand? if your saying that the drop last night is factoring alot in my opinion.. its like me saying that everytime abby goes down your the one that takes drops.. that would be a factor in your opinion?.... i have nothing to do with abby hunting, yet my oppinion might be not 100% to the point ? =x anyway you just said they may be a bit high ... it still doesnt sense .... they are way too high , its impossible not to see it i will ask you again. how you think its appropiate to give a high chance of getting the best items once each week? I'd say depends on the rates. When I see an accurate droplist of around 100 kills then I'll be happy to comment.

    I wouldn't count on it. The drops were tragic before and are appropriate now. I've done probably every abby kill here for the last couple of years. Tbh not many of you are in a position to question me on this.

    TBH maynard you didn't even mention drops in your 5 posts in the thread when they were announced until Dark Exec and MS30 dropped in 1 drop. A good drop like that is only a 1/4 chance. See if people do it again, then see what drops, then build your comments on the basis of good information. I expect better from you than the usual noob panic.

    I kind of get where milk is coming from tbh. Hero is so pathetic on mages that a lot of them won't even work for it. I know I don't (that's why I made a platemage, and got hero cape instead on my pure mage Eld0n). The key point is that it's not actually good enough to justify the loss in defence currently. Even aesthetically, it is a robe. I'd really support a hero chain that was either only SLIGHTLY higher than the robe, or that was the same def as BS chain (which is shit), as long as this is higher than the hero robe slightly. It'd get mages wearing hero so much more often.

    A Question

    I wouldn't really worry too much about 1 kill a week tbh :P
  14. Eldon

    A Question

    We got 2 good drops, what I'd consider 2 good, so that'd be a "cool" drop. I.e. 1/4
  15. Eldon

    A Question

    Only 5/20 will turn out like this, or 1/4 - so we got as lucky as we could on the number of good items dropping.
