I TOTALLY agree that they should abolise the plats and hammer giving out when level 40.
However, maybe GM should adjust the concept of giving out and at the same time can encourage the new player to join the game. For example, adjust the prize instead and probably adjust the level to 50 instead. Another possibility is restrict the plats to accumulate in an account or disable the character being deleted or the elite ape at bog/ice is become weaker.
Why this free 20 plats and 10x hammer prizes should be reviewed? This is because people do it excessively.
How many plats can i farm? Let do some calculation.
Power level using healer (undead manipulator) by capturing the ape elite at bog / ice:
- with 1x healer and 4x new char, estimation time to lvl up to 40 will takes about 90 minutes average.
Mean, at the end you able to get 80 plats and 40x hammers.
Assuming this user is extreme and hunger of plats, so he will take advantage of this system to power level as much as possible. So, in 6 hours, he able to farm about 320 plats and 160x hammers. Even you have extreme bad luck in opening the hammer, I estimate the possibility you able to get average about 500 plats value of mall item. So total you able to get 820 plats in just 6 hours time. What if the user is using a powerful PC which can run 10x char at the same time? This plats farming will become 1640 plats just in 6 hours.
In one month, he able to get 49,200 plats.
How do the plats buyer able to compete against this kind of extreme user?
I put my vote to review this free things completely and put a STOP into it.
Then why we dont see any people farming platz if it is so simple Terminator...?
Hamer don't give you things you wna buy for platz.
I mean not often..
what chance is to get burning point crystal by opening 160 hamers?
even if you go to lvl 4 witch mathematic chance is 1% item value will vary from 10-100 points ---> in other words...you could succed 1 for 100 hamers to get to lvl4...and price can be soul of growing weapon..
So i believe 50 plats was rly farming...
and worhty to farm...
nowdays no one farm..
atleast i didnt see any one pover farming on twilight.
Should focus on people who get +20gw its rly strange
from +13 its about 1 atempt for 700 plats ---> rush 1k platz
And its only for 1 try to ubgrade to +14...
...+20 ...thats a wonder..
Personly it takes me about 4h, 2-3 mnemonics
0-100k gold , 3 blis d ---to get 1 alt to 40....
Game need litle farming ...
but 50platz price was heaven to abuse...
If they made the level higher that a higher level could power level ie any char level 40 and below could not be power leveled, then it would stop the plat farming automatically and the only players that would be claiming the level 40 prize would be actual players that are playing the game, I dont know how easy this would be to implement but its a suggestion.
Yes it would be annoying when some1 wants to make another class because they'll need to work at that char to level but it would stop the plat farming. And still allow the level 40;s who have leveled there chars without power leveling to claim the level 40 prize.
Actually I've seen Luck say that in country chat and also the rest of the convo not just one line of the convo, and it was a Joke nothing more, wonder why they never put the rest of the convo up in th ...

I too have was in country chat at that time and IT WAS MEANT AS A JOKE by Luck and just like Valasca i too am wondering now why the rest of the convo wasnt shown here.
ive spent enough money on this damn game, i think its time that the players who have stuck around for so long are allowed a reward for keeping this game alive.

I am also someone who has played a long time but do i think I should be rewarded because I have stuck it out by plat farming no I dont . ( Though if the GM'S want to reward me for sticking it out, feel free I wont complain )
I may not have the best gears though there saints, as in enhanced by mega loads of vamp do I care no I dont why because every piece I have I worked hard in the game for. And maybe Sunny's right maybe level 40 plat prize should be removed from game, I hear to cries of woe now .....
Agreed Xodus. There will always be abusers.. I vote for completly removing freebie plat and hammers. Don't have plat? Aww too bad.. Go buy some.. Don't want too? Aww.. Go buy it from a plat buyer.

Thank you people And Val I didn't mean remove everything called plat lol Just the Reward for level 40 (By the way wohoo big achievement getting to level 40 -.-)
But I know you know that Just making my point extra clear
I vote for completly removing freebie plat and hammers. Don't have plat? Aww too bad.. Go buy some.. Don't want too? Aww.. Go buy it from a plat buyer.

Cant Agree More With This Statement And This Statement Here Is every point I Was Trying to Get At. If Ya Cant Afford Plats Well Save Up in-Game Money and Buy From Plat Buyers.
And +20 Gweps Rings Like THIS
Please, Tell Me How Many APS Went Into Someting Like That? :/ Wouldnt Be a Problem From a Legit Player, But From a Player With +20 Gwep Also, Come on, Im not Stupid. Really Gotta Cheat to Be Something In this Game? lol. Then Your Sad and So is Anyone Else Who Does the Same
UBER Cheated Gears Should be Taken OUT OF THE GAME. And Remove Lvl 40 Freebies. And GET SOME GMS THAT WILL DO SOMETHING FOR THE GAME.
Funny How After Luck Mentioned GMs Told Plat Farmers To Hide Gears b4 Being Banned, and No GM has Responded to this Post After that? hmmmmmmm
So Instead of Telling The Farmers To "Hide" There Gears So GMs Can Ban Them for 1 Week Then Let Them Back in Only to Show and Say "Hey We Did Something About it" LOL...RIGHT.Instead of Telling Them to Hide The Gears Why Not Remove Them From The Game? ey? Put That in Your Pipe And Smoke it. Nice Work GMs
What about a cap on lvl difference when teaming.. like if the lvl gap is more than 20 then low lvl get zero exp, and married couple have no cap, used in alot of other games so shouldnt be to hard to implement..
