Server Maintenance 12th February 2021

Recommended Posts

I bring small news.

Changes:

  • The Guardian HQ is now using the JP setting again.
    The NPC to travel between branches is enabled, however the training facility and "free mission" option from Mina has been removed.
     
  • Players can now filter items by element in the player shop by appending the element to the end of the search term.
    For example "saber fire" will return items with the phrase "saber" in the name, and is fire element.
    Element key words are: fire, ice, electric, ground, light, and dark
        
    *Note: This is very experimental, of course.

Fixes:

  • The NPC at Foran Waterfall will sell Consumable items again.
  • The SPF Bottoms and Amorosso Boots are now available at the Guardians Colony clothing shop.
  • An issue where the client would interact with some objects wrongfully during loading has been resolved.
  • A handful of database scuffs and updates that you won't really see front-end.
     
  • New Year Spear now has the correct model.
  • Ryo-Bimtorec now has the correct model.
  • Matohonoh now has the correct model.
  • Mugunrukuc now has the correct model.

 

We didn't really have the time right now to make anything super special, but here's a small event for you:

  • Protectors κ is available at the Guardians HQ.
  • EXP and MP has been raised +50%.
  • PA EXP has been raised +100%.
  • Casino Voloyal will provide 2 Silver every day.
  • The level cap has been raised to 85.

This will likely run until March 1st, so please make the most of it.

As always, thanks a lot for your patience and support.

Thank you to Marm and anyone else who helped with this update. I hope we can filter player shop items by neutral element as well.

*edit* Neutral works too.

Can we stop having so many of these boosted XP events/temp missions? No one does anything else during them and it kind of sucks.

Are you high? There was literally 2 events that have exp boost, theres  not“many” you speak of and peoples were complaining lately for having hard time leveling to the cap too do newer content due to barely any low level groups.  most population was doing new content.

>Hard time leveling

You kinda proved part of my point right there. This is an older game, leveling is supposed to take a while. It's just annoying when people are only doing one thing for a month or 2 weeks or whatever, it's what killed off PC/PS2 PSU.

Sorry, I don't mean to sound like a know it all or a jackass. Lemme explain my thought process and reasoning behind this.

I believe that the PC/PS2 PSU servers died out in major part to people spamming White Beast 24/7 for EXP and MP. People who didn't want to do that couldn't find others to play with, so they got bored and quit. Eventually the people who were doing stopped and well, the process repeated itself. As for a potential "limited time event/mission" every other month or just too often, I draw your attention to the Ultima PSO Private server I play on now and then. There people only really play with others on any regular basis when there's an event active with exclusive drops. They will hunt those items, kill those enemies, do the same mission over and over for however long the event lasts. Once it's gone, most people will stop playing until the next event. A majority of those that remain, only play with people from their "inner circle" or simply put people they know from elsewhere or IRL. As such people like me, who like to do varied things with random people (because I believe that's part of the appeal of these games) will find it near impossible to play with other people due to such a low population and as such, feel inclined to quit.

That's my concern. If events with exclusive missions and items, especially those with EXP/MP boosts come too often, players will fall into this mentality. Maybe I'm wrong, but it's a concern to me all the same. I actualy have some hope for this server and LOVE the balances changes to classes, PAs, etc and don't want to see it die because of this. I hope I'm wrong, but I do have past experience with this sort of thing, even if only a little.

A minority of people (who by the way don't play the game) complained that everything was taking too long.

None, I just see that whatever choices they make, there will always be someone to complain about it. That said, I understand your argument

I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure the boosted XP/MP apply to all missions and not just the event one? I'm currently lv85 , so I can't say for sure since all the EXP pts says "EXP FULL" now.

Personally I'm thankful to have these events, especially the PA EXP boost, as it's a huge time saver. I can kinda see your point about some people only playing during events, but IMO that's going to always happen regardless of the exp boosts. People will always be excited and play more when we get more/new content whether it be missions, equips, lvl cap increases and kind of wane off until the next new/big content.  (and there sure are a LOT of drops in this Protectors event, so hunting everything will take many a runs 👍). This is especially true for the folks who have played this game many times already.

I think many people feel the same way in that they want to play other missions, but the tricky part to getting players to join in on random missions is the fact that there are so many lobbies in this game.

I'm a big advocate of the #lookingforparty channel in the Clementine discord for this reason. Fairly easy way to find other parties to join in random missions or recruit other players to join your runs. Def check it out if you haven't already tried.  Probably the best tool we have right now to assemble parties for random runs.

I get that it's always going to happen but when the server population is so low well, it ends up being a large portion of the player base.

Can you add Doors of Subspace except add the enemies that weren’t in Doors of Subspace:

Polty (Both Lightning And Fire)

Fire Polavohra

All Humanoids

All Seed-Forms

All Rare Enemies

and missing Elements for Enemies in this mission

And other missing enemies 

and make it up to 1-6 party members.
