    Hello everyone,

    It seems no matter what we do we can not make everyone happy. Yes we changed the top attacker system to give extra rewards for the players that are on the shard and do not transfer off. There is NO WAY for a EM to make sure one specific person gets a reward. The EM's do not set up the mobs they just tell us what they would like to have and its set up by us.

    We give out a high number of rewards when its at the end of an arc of the EM's otherwise each EM is allowed 1 reward a month.

    I do take favoritism or cheating by my EM's very serious but if you are going to accuse one of something, I hope you have proof and atleast give me a name so I can investigate. Let me repeat myself again just incase I was not clear. An Event Moderator can not give out items to players because all the items they make can not be picked up by a player. An Event Moderator can not make sure his/her friends get the rewards from the Top Attacker mobs, that is purely based on interaction with the mob such as damage and healing.

    I hope this has cleared up some of the confusion.
    Lord Nabin and Longtooths like this.
