    I totally agree. I've gone there many times to test house placement and cannot due to the houses other players don't demolish.

    They need to figure out a way to wipe the houses regularly without wiping the whole shard. Maybe make it so that all houses placed on TC automatically go into decay state.

    Well not everything is given to you automatically on TC. There is some stuff you still have to acquire. Plus it can take time to set up characters. I think really that the housing is the biggest gripe when TC doesn't get wiped for a while.

    just make all the tc houses 'grandfathered' so they have to be refreshed.

    Nice to see no flames..
    Yes they should just wipe the houses every server refresh...

    I have a house spot now that i know a castle will go..but for some reason it dosent want to now...

    I saw it on another shard ways back like 7 years..

    Wonder if they added a few new trees or what ever..

    Plus this cant reach that area for house placing in EC sucks..

    Im trying to see what items are in the way...

    And there is nothing on TC1 that is not hard to get..it is given to you from start...

    Play a real shard..

    Not everything is just given to you. Plus because of the stupidity of the number of items in your bank box, anything you touch gets dropped to the ground and cannot be put back into your bank, thus you have to sacrifice some stuff.

    My point is that they should wipe the housing and anything else, frequently but don't wipe the characters every time.
     
  8. One of the best ideas for that server...

    Thats the best idea I have heard and make any future house placement small plots so more people can place there if needed to test

    i am a casual player and i love playing on test center as i dont need to spent time on building up the skills and stats on my chars. As and when as i wanted a new skill or stat, all i need to do is to use the set command and i am all done.

    i dont have to worry about the resources too, there are plenty for me to pick up around the bank. some players even throw away gold on the floor.

    i feel safe walking around fel as there isnt many pk. there arent any scripters around too.

    i dont have to worry about my account being hack cos the hacker cant transfer all my items out of the test shard. if the hacker wanted to, they can also deleted all my chars and i could create all my dream chars again easily.

    i love the idea of grandfather house in TC so that regular player like me can logon everday to refresh it. however, i also dont mind if there is a housing wipe once in a while so that i could place a house in luna hot spot.

    they just need to make it that people have to actually open their front door once every 3 days or so or the house goes byebye
