  1. Your best bet is to get on Clementine's discord and as in the #looking-for-group thread. Good luck
  2. Starting to regret not having a link to the previous discussion thread that the community all added to last year since a lot of this was talked about previously, however recalling exactly what was concluded alludes me. What I can say is that it's very unlikely that we as a community can come to any agreement on either new classes or severely altering current ones. We're a bit more democratic here on Clementine, and changes arn't generally made unless a majority of us agree to it to some degree. Perhaps this will change in the future since the PSUC development team has altered a bit, so we'll see. Thank you very much for your info though! Let's hope this thread sticks around to refer to it later.
  3. So as an update to my previous post, I was given contact with one of the developers for the other server and was told that they are planning on releasing a better PSU server. They will be building their own code on top of this data to do so. They informed me that they are not doing this for monetary profit. So now we know.
  4. Google translate: "Any chance the server will support PS2? Because now that DamonPs2 has been banned from everyone's cell phones, the new emulator promises online play" No, sorry. The server does not support console play and I'm unaware if the developers are working towards console play at this time. Playing on our phones is a fun thought though!
  5. Unfortunately, PSU's coding/system/platform is very, very restrictive. I do not believe we are able to add additional types, however we can change the current ones we have. I made a suggestion awhile ago to redo the base classes to be something viable, or perhaps repurpose them for things like "Acromaster." Same here. IMO, it was the better story out of all the PSU:AOTI stories and it's sickening that Sega decided for that to be server side only.
  6. We can look at this logically (aka without morals since what they did to achieve this was immoral so clearly they don't care.) Someone stole this data, and then sold it to someone else whom then purchased the stolen data. This means someone felt the data had value and subtracted from their own funds to obtain it. People normally spend their money on things of value to them, but that value can depend on what that person means to get from it. This usually falls into two categories: To gain more value from it, or to "show off." ------------------------------- Gain Value If the point of stealing&paying for Marm's data was to make more value (aka more money/profit,) then there are a few steps they will need to take in order to do so. Build a server using Marm's data, rent server space to host it, and find a team to help update and fix the server are just a few things needed. Once the server is up and running, now they will need a player base to play to spend money on the game in order to make a profit from. How can they get players? Well, they can probably reach out to people whom have quit Clementine, people whom dislike it now, and more than likely their friends. If you'd like, we can use the pareto principle to deuce how many people may possibly play their server compared to Clem's. If you're right about 100 daily players, then they should expect about 20. That's not going to be enough, I assume. So now they will need to advertise their server in order to get new players to join and they will either have to promise or lie that their server is better than Clementine. They could pay for google/youtube/facebook ads, granted I don't believe their budget will get that big, so more than likely will be word of mouth through other forums or discords. Now, they will need to make money of some capacity so they will need to offer boosts, privilege's or unique content in order for players to shell out. Perhaps they do not wish to obtain monetary value from Marm's data that was stolen and they paid for. What would they do then? "Show-off" Although I do not know of any display cases where one can show-off a video game's data, it's possible that whomever wanted Marm's data just wanted it to have it. Perhaps they really just wanted a private server of their own but did not want to put in the effort to make one themselves, in which they play with themselves (lol) and their friends in their own separated world. If this is true, this seems to be quite important for them to be in control of everything since most players are happy with Clementine the way it is. It's possible that whomever is starting this new server simply wants to make a "better" PSU server. According to cold-hard logic, as Clementine players, if we want the best PSU server we can get, then competition is necessary. However, we are humans and believe in fair play, and someone who wins a competition by cheating cannot be labeled "a winner." If these people really wanted to compete, they should've made their own code, but we're past that now. For the worst option, maybe they had a vendetta against Marm and/or the Clementine staff/developers and simply wanted to harm their moral by taking his server and starting their own just to break down the community. I dislike painting people in such dark colors, but as logic dictates, I must think of every possibility as to why this happened. -------------------------------- Look, the world isn't just black and white. There's a chance the reason for doing what has been done was a little of column A and a little bit of B. All we can really gain is from the little we know. The data was created and belonged to Marm. He believed the data was worth the effort and did not wish to make it or sell it for profit. Whomever did this did see value in Marm's data as well. Enough to steal&pay for but not enough to make their own. It's also very clear that they do not care about the Clementine community by these actions either, since everyone here knows how they acquired Marm's data. If you are deeply concerned about this issue, then my advice is to not draw attention to it. Shed a light on it when necessary as evil only grows in the dark, but understand that if you continue mentioning it, even in a negative way, that will only help it stay relative. "There's no such thing as bad publicity." "Never let a catastrophe go to waste." "Create a problem, sell the solution."
  7. Not one-hundo on this, but I believe blocking someone means: You will not see their chat. (Unsure if they are able to see yours.) They cannot message you. They cannot invite you into a party. (Unsure if you can enter into theirs.) They cannot enter your rooms. (You can enter theirs.) They cannot join a party that you are in. (No error message pops up, they simply are unable to join.) They cannot send you a trade. (Unsure if you can send them one.) Unsure if they are able to view your character's info. They cannot send you their card. (You can send them your card, they will have the option to accept it or not.) If they accept your card or already have it, they will (still) be able to see your location. ) As Souma said, blacklisting applies to the whole account. Any character on that account will be blacklisted from any characters on your account. ( ! Be careful whom you send your card to! ! )
  8. "We wouldn't know who the good people are in this world if there weren't bad ones." This community is small already so I'm utterly confused as to what those who stole the data intend to do with it. If it's to make money, they must be hoping on a prayer, in the two digit regulars who'd play their server, that there's a "whale" for private servers among them. If this was for personal reasons against the PSUC team, again I question the point of splitting up the players to even smaller communities. Did they really believe a majority of players were fed up with Clementine? Seems to me, at least they we're not in favor of it. Although the situation itself is disappointing to many of us, I'm actually glad it happened. Marm needed to leave long ago, or at least take a long break. Not because of the work he's done or who he is, but because this game has been his life for almost a decade, so him leaving is actually the best thing for him. For the rest of us, that means we will need to be patient with game updates as the new PSUC team regroups. Also, as Gnome stated, they have lives outside of this server and therefore their time is limited. Wish this would have happened in a more positive circumstance, but I believe this was all for the better, in the silver lining kind of way.
  9. There was a large list of items that the PSUC team was going to be working on and these issues were addressed on there, however I'm having difficulties finding atm. For now, I will answer with what I know has been talked about before for possible solutions (nothing is guaranteed however,) Suggestion 1: Fixing new player retention There was talk about giving new accounts a set of meseta/items/boosts/etc. to help with the initial grind. Also, people suggested removing level requirements to missions so that lower levels can play higher level missions with others. We're aware that would allow for power leveling, however the problem that arose would be that people would lock their parties more to keep lower levels out, so this was an inconclusive answer. As far as incentivizing people to help out newbies, there was nothing that was agreed upon that would convince enough players to do so. For now, it's only from those who decide to spend their time helping others out of the goodness of their hearts. Suggestion 2: Cyclone Dance dmg output buff This is very specific issue that only pertains to a select group of players, but feel free to make a separate forum topic to discuss this further. Suggestion 3: Rare drop problems "Missions spotlights" are basically what everyone's dailies are. You get boosts for taking down specific mobs/bosses. The idea of mission specific boosts for everyone I believe is possible, but would require a manual update each time, so not sure how much time the team is willing to sacrifice to do this. For drop rates, it's the Goldilocks issue. There really is no "just right" rate for rares. Luck will always be apart of it and everyone thinks they are cursed in some way or another. Discussing this issue on here or bugging the team will help not fix the problem. Making your issues known about this is fair, but please understand that it's an issue everyone has in some way or another. Hope this helped you out a little, and thanks for your input.
  10. My apologies. Didn't want to make it seem as though there was no effort on the PSUC team's side to answer questions at all, nor that Marm shouldn't be asked questions either. However, I do believe having a few selected people whom questions should be directed to would have helped, more or less to bother the developers a lot less and only with important issues. This point of view is from someone on the outside looking in, so it's possible this is how it was all along. The issue of people asking constantly is something that should've been expected, whether those were with good intentions or otherwise. As Aelphasy stated, being more firm with these folks and requesting for them to take their issues to the forums rather than argue with the team may have helped this issue. Again, this is all in hind-sight. Hopefully this issue will be resolved in a better manor going forward. "You do you."
  11. Sorry to hear Marm. Most of us wished that this wasn't the outcome. This is meant as a general question, but why wasn't there a PR group for Clementine? Giving players direct access to question the main developer was probably the wrong move. It's in the past now but we're happy that Marm is putting his life over this game. This project is only here because of his hard work and dedication and no one will forget that. Best of luck to Marm and the new PSUC team.
  12. The issue seems to be fixed now. They operate at a slightly slower speed which feels better.
  13. Why do you believe PA boosts are different to EXP/drop boosts?
  14. I prefer the gypsy version of the PM so I got that one. However, there may be devices we can feed them later that'll change them into other things.
  15. So going off later posts, you mean instead of timed events with certain boosts, just give everyone consumable boosts to use as they please at certain times? If this is the case, it's a good idea as you say, since people can then choose when they get their boosts and which ones they want. However, that would mean that instead of getting a bunch of players logging on and playing during that certain time, some would log-in, get the consumables then log off. They'd continue to play when they want which may mean weeks or months later. The real question is, are events more about giving players boosts or boosting player count? In your opinion, which of these is more important for a private server like ours?
