This is the final update before launch on the 29th of may.
Guild system: That is coming in the first version update. The decision is that we are going to go with cross server guilds. This means that players from other servers can join guilds on other servers.
This decision was made on the grounds that single server guild systems often favour the top guild which normally has the majority of cashers and therefore an advantage in guild events.
Also the requests from players to transfer servers to play with friends is a factor.
We are looking at limiting guild numbers to about 10 players per guild. This is a unusual step but its ba
Another reason is the plan for the guild shop that would allow players to buy in game vip items using guild credits. We feel its fairer on players if they are active in guild events, to not see 2/3s of the guild benefit from their hard work in guild events. This is something I have seen in many games where players that are online and active, do not bother with guild events or helping their guild but are the first to claim guild event rewards.
smaller guild numbers also support the in game team system which is max of 3 per dungeon so with guilds with 10 members, that theme is continued.
Trade and auction. Again we are not having them in the game despite one player predicting the downfall of RoG because we will not allow players to trade items. My answer is the same as it was in the game.
I spent 3 days trying to talk with you, help you with your character, even running dungeons with you and you ignoring my instructions to stop behind me and not rush the elite hellhounds as they would kill you because you were level 40 with level 10 gear.
RoG is a game where players can solo or run on teams, and yes there is times I wanted to share good items I gained but had no use for....so I wanted to drop them and allow other players to pick them up because I was not interest in self gain ...... but as a former RS player, I know how that system was regularly abused.
Even in AMZ, I fired and banned my own GMs for using the felspire trade system to trade items for real life cash.
I get that players like to share, trade and help other players, including friends..... I do myself. but sadly I am realistic as I have worked on one game where I was banning 1000's of accounts for funding their mains and no it has nothing to do with inability to recharge, as players could buy vip items in the game with gold.
In this thread, I have shown what is possible as a free player without recharging and how I did it
That was done on the open test server, OB1, and while yes, I had the time to do that, other players were equally as strong, if not stronger, only playing 4 days a week for 6 hours a day.
Learn to play the game, ask for help, ask questions, become like me..... because like any player, I had to learn the game myself and while players may argue I had an advantage because I knew the game, I was not born with full knowledge of the game, I had to learn and make mistakes myself.
ON to better news.
We have added the full screen mode as requested, auto potion use as requested, rename character bu
While I have doubts about that, as players will use offensive names, the majority of players are there to play the game and have fun.

Arena : there was a complaint that it was unbalanced because a player with 20k beat me and I was 62k in the arena..... NO it was not unbalanced, I let you beat me because as I showed you, I had my skills set for dungeon farming, as soon as I changed them to arena, you failed to beat me, 10 times in a row.
The arena gave you the advantage because defenders do not move around the arena, your mistake was trying to use frost ray on me, that trick only works if you are a defender, not an attacker.
Remember the player that removed all their skills except for one in the arena, so they could not be beaten ? I beat them and then I told the players how I beat them..... I simply used manual combat and did not charge into them, I moved around them and hit them with chained lightning as I moved... and then I told players my weakness was that I relied on auto aim skills like chained lightning however I had low elemental resist which meant skills like ice lance hurt me badly..... yet you used frost ray instead which is manually aimed and has a shorter range.
The arena is designed so that players can no dominate in the arena, they have to be active in order to keep their ranking, which is fair on other players and gives any player the chance to get top ranking even with a low BR...
