    They enjoy to do this hun...

    Just looking back at Clanin's public ritual sacrifice tells you a clue as to their liking of "shady" and "evil" things...

    hopefully to finally give us "game" in a manner of speaking...

    I'm really open minded at this point... bring it on :thumbup1: sounds like some major bug needed some tinkerin tho :(

    Down to 15 mins now apparently.

    As for not doing anything which takes more than 30 mins. That obviously means you're not doing one of those lovely 35k HP mobs that take an age to kill no matter the template you use. Or slasher who takes age

    On Europa we had the precursor to an event happen a couple of minutes before the announcement, so it looks like not even the EMs were informed ahead of time...

    One of the six gates was purple, so spawn should have been coming through.

    Maintenance of All Shards - 10/10

    Kai Schober

    10 Oct 2011 14:57:36 EST



    Greetings,

    We will bring down all shards at 3:00 pm EDT today for a short maintenance. This will fix issues with the Clean Up Britannia event.

    At this time we anticipate the shards to be back online no later than 5:00 pm EDT.


    Just posted on uohearld

    Lol, announce just hit the herald....5 minutes before it's going down. I'm just glad I hadn't started to work the champ spawn yet (yes, my last post was sarcastic), would have wasted my time and a lot of bolts.

    Maybe the problem has to do with me living in a different dimention (or vibrational bandwidith) than you do...

    And the fact that I am immortal (companion) and have lived over a million lifetimes consciously within lucid dreams.

    It's a miracle I haven't gone insane for the eternities I spent within the abyss, kissing or sweeping our queen's feet...

    Thats great, I'm glad you're flexible on your observation...

    if everyone was a realist, there would be no imagination, no creativity...

    I'm a rolecompanion ; and I think I exist in the right place, thanks for caring :heart:

    The exploit involved turning in a precise item, which is uncommon, so it would be easy to detect exploiters that turned gazillions of it. I truly hope they are not going to get away with it, but anyway the harm is already done because of the insane rate of point even a casual cheater could have made millions in an hour.

    At the very least they should have made a general 24 hours revert. That wouldn't have hurt the "original" exploiters but at least it wouldn't have let everyone and his dog abuse the system.

    Could be people using undeveloped characters they've had for years collecting holiday stuff turning in some of that stuff to get suits on shards where they eventually plan to spend more time playing. I dropped boxes of chocolates and Christmas stockings on Balhae the other day to get suits for my three main characters there and will probably do the same on a few other shards as well.

    Can't turn in Untranslated Ancient Tome for points anymore after the maintenance. Was this intentional? ... Otherwise I used to like farming for these at mini champs in the Abyss and they give 200 points. Wonder what else was turned off. :(
