    With all the threads, many which have strong support, from what I've seen these three suggestions have virtually 100% support. It's good to see us agreeing on at least something. They are:

    1. Create a blackrock zone for training purposes.
    2. Increased bank box size (say 1000).
    3. Put Siege on the shard list.

    I'm just confirming that people ARE in favor of at least these three changes, and given that we as a community might want to move forward with an ask the devs question. Something like:

    Siege is dying, blah blah blah, The people of Siege support the following simple changes that we hope would bring about new people to our shard:

    1. Blackrock zone, 90% approve.
    2. Bank box increased, 90% approve
    3. Siege on shard list, 90% approve.
    4. Increased arty drops, 70% approve
    5. 2nd grandfathered house, 65% approve.
    etc.

    It would probably be better coming from a single source, of which I'd defer to Kat since she seems to have posted the most. Thought it might be best coming from Petra or Kelmo as mods/mods extraordinaire.

    I voted yes, because there is nothing in the list that would hurt Siege.
    I'm not sure what you mean by blackrock "zones", shouldn't it just drop anywhere you mine?

    Increased bank box size - great for people trying out the shard with no housing. I have a 20% bank box increase from a 9th Anniversary code, so I currently have 150 storage, increase it to 1000 and I'll have 1200 storage with my 20% increase! :D

    1 to 5 does not effect how we play with each other, so I voted Yes.

    But, we do have problems how play occurs in the game, that is outside the
    preview of the developers.

    If this stupid ass **** makes it in before or without monster loot being addressed, have fun with the same old boring empty Siege.


    If Siege isn't fun to play for it's current population, then how in the hell is it going to be fun for newbs? Because oodles of us wouldn't be on Atlantic/GL instead of Siege if this wasn't the case.


    Number 4 is 80% approve.

    Thanks.

    Blackrock zone is a referral to a time limited event we had a while back where an area near the Ophidian lair in T2A gave increased skill gains...

    I voted yes, but seriously; don't count on the bank size upgrade being implemented.

    Seems 125 is the magic number for every container I've ever seen. I wonder if it's a limitation of the way storage was original coded? Are we looking at a "Y2K" type issue with changing it?

    No its not, there are codes you can buy to increase storage. Everyone has 20% on the house, but you can buy an additional 20% to you home (see Lorddogs house in tel mur) for a 40% total, and 20% more in your bank, which works out to 150 bankable items

    I was just sayin it because it requires some substantial effort from the devs. Even house storage expansion came with a cost.

    Ok. Wasn't even aware of the $20 package, then again I've been gone for a while. It also looks like it spans all character and shards. I wonder how easy it would be to make it Siege specific.

    According to my math.... 125 storage to 1000 storage is 800% increase. Just sayin'.

    I thought I read somewhere that your bank box is somehow connected to your character and a substantial increase in storage would cause lag..... HOWEVER there does not seem to be a problem with lag on TC, so I am not sure if this is true.

    Would anyone be opposed to suggesting that ALL shards get an increased bank storage? This way, you might get some support for the idea from the prodo people, and devs then might not see it as "Siege specific". We could probably argue about the necessity of a bigger bank on prodo, but that is not the point I am trying to make. We need to make it as easy as possible for the devs and something like changing the code for all shards may be easier than just changing it for Siege.

    My 2 cents.
    Off to work I go!

    i agree these changes would help . i voted yes myself . but id also like to see the quality of monster loot improved .(not nessasarily gold) its so hard to hold on to anything nice here . the input should equal the outflow.
    improved loot would draw more farmers giving those who wish to pvp more targets . win win for both sides.

    Given the unprecedented concensus on this issue, is it time to re-post it on U.Smell?
