Ideas and suggestions to improve the server(s).

Post by Shara » 12 Dec 2012, 01:15

Hello everyone.

I've had some talks with players in-game, and some interesting things came up and were discussed.
We are also getting complaints that the game is getting boring and such.

I have a question for everyone, what things do you think should be added to improve the server(s) to get more members?


I'll start off with some things.
Custom looking npc's.
Special looking gear/fashion for fun social things, relaxing, chilling, chatting, etc.
More custom looking all-class or veno(WF) pets.
Some fun small items to add some color to West ADC/Arch.
Fly/mount from another game.

And tons more things.


Your ideas may come from anywhere and any game. WoW, Jade Dynasty, etc. But whether it is possible to add them to lmspw is up to LMS

If you have something to add, like an npc, monster or something else, post a reply with some info, for example:
*(Image of monster,npc or other thing(s))
*(Stats, color or other stuff if it is gear/fashion.)
*(Where should the npc be placed? (coordinates and/or image showing the spot/place))
*((Possible) website link to the npc/monster/fashion/armor ID, or other web link that has info about it, for example from the PW Database.)
And other things you feel are needed info.


So, if you have something to add to the server(s) to improve them, let us know.

(Thread/topic was made quick, may still be changed to add more things.)

Hello GM and everyone,

Happy New year!!!

i would like to start off with some ideas (from other games like WOW private servers ) that might be / could be added in during each or any festive seasons.
e.g. X'mas event -
you can add a npc by the town center where everyone regardless of level can get a few quest.

this quest will requires you to kill some general mobs, you can define the number of mobs require, the reward will be a fashion item like shoes.
you can repeat another quest which will lead to the other pieces of the fashion set. if possible you can make them in random colors.

once the fashion set is complete, you can move the quest rewards to a theme pet " mini snowman" or "mini reindeer"
last part of the quest can be a land mount or flying mount which is either time bound or permanent.

you can also add in other sub quest which give charms or potions or gold etc..


just my ideas and sharing to make the game more fun and let players have something else to do beside daily grinding and farming. :)

Hey GMs and players =)

this is especially for the 1.4.7 servers :O

i also have some ideas to improve the enjoyment of playing LMS-PW servers...

1st: maybe make a registration bonus for ppl who get new players to the servers.... like i tell a friend about the game and he register... in registration he can put my charname in if he wants... u check the ip and so... after he played 100 hours i recieve a bonus for getting ppl to LMS!

2nd: the wednesday event -> City of Abomination<- ... i just did it last week.. and noone was there... just me... maybe put some usefull rewards in... like raps x1 (needed 20 Astral Orbs) uncanny x3 (needed 10 Astral Orbs) or maybe also Demon/Sage EventCard x1 (needed 1000 Astral Orbs) or Jones Blessing[blessing for 7 days which gives Atk-Lv +30] (needed 750 Astral Orbs) and so on... ur decision :P => or to the Tournament Agent... where u can exchange that iten which u get from City of Abim. add there Vit+30 stones.. (needed 500 of that item u get from City of Abim.

3rd:something like auto cubi refill to auctions House npc... unless we can farm so much money... but cant waste it xD... for stuffs

4th: when there are about 200-300 or even more... active ppl on pve server, where i play... maybe reset TW-Map all 6 months to give chance to other factions which are not so strong to captcher some terrritories or something like that

5th: no moe ideas right now :D.... thats all just ideas and opinion.. where i think it can make playing more enjoyful :P

ps: i watched the server activness last days.. and see there is not that much ppl online pve about 60-80 and pvp max 50... i would like to merge servers and make special pvp zones ... but not my servers and not my moneys :o.. sry for this one... maybe worth to think about it... makes more competition for ppl :P

Thanks for reading =)

Hey +1 for your suggestions,

Merge PvP and PvE server, but Server should be PvP and everything we farmed must be remain same Also some of some areas of Events should be kept safe.
Server: x1000
Char: BullsEyE (EA)

Server: PvE
Char: Omkar (PSY)
Char: Assassin (SIN)

Server: PvP
Char: Psychic (PSY)
Char: BullsEyE (ARCH)
Char: Radiance (SIN)

i dun care about what server it is... if pve make pvp zones.... if pvp make safe zones... and sure all farmed stuff have to remain....

ty for answering =)...

and got another idea now... maybe something like bingo....like 1x per week or month... make 4x4 square and put numbers 1-16(or better 1-25... so there is not that easy to win!!!) in the squares like u want( ppl who playing)( make it with paint or other progs...)... send to LMS ... and on sunday each week or first/last sunday in month LMS picks 6 numers out of 16 (or better 8-9 numbers out of 25) and all who got a line wins cubi or something... if u got two lines u get more rewards then :D


exp: 1 line wins 250 cubi
2 lines wins 500 cubi



its just an idea... have fun reading :P

ok, this is an idea that venos only would love, and everyone else hate, im sure, but it made playing the old BloodDragon PW server the most fun ever! someone had made a veno battle pet from a tiny firefly-very hard to see, even with it at your feet. but this lil bug could take down bosses! insanely overpowered, and hard to keep healed, but it was SOOO much fun to go on dungeon runs, and see a tiny speck zoom across the floor to its prey, and knock the snot out of it! my son (who was playing an OPed cleric atm,) hated me to bring out the fly, whose name was RAID!, because he didnt get to fight.

i would suggest taking the hamster pet, and OPing it, and call it something like 'Hamster of Death ' or 'Killer Hamster'. i saw on another server that the hamster had been put out in the Unicorn forest, and called 'Annoyed Gunie Pig', and it had a really wide aggro range. so i know it would work as a sub for the firefly, and be funnier....cute lil furball zoom in and take down world bosses! granted, it takes them a while to chew on the boss, but they can do it!

so, please, consider this?

OK, here are my ideas-please dont take them as complaints or critisisms, but rather as things i have seen on other servers that were popular with the players, and changes that would help bring in and keep new players here.

* for starters, lets begin at the beginning...literally. when my husband and i started here, the new starters area was totally new to us, though weve played pwi since it began in the US in '08. and we were so pleased to get the nice aerogear, to be able to get clothes to cover the armour, and the pet. but when we found out that we could not keep any of it, we were appalled-why would pwi lure players into grinding for aquametal/money to buy things that one cannot keep?? we were angry about this-still are- but the owner could change this, and allow players to keep what they get in the beginners world. think on this...it would give the new player a considerable boost in getting a footing in the pw world if thet did not feel the pressure of either having to scratch together enough gold for aerogear right away( the stuff we get is of the disappearing kind, or super slow. and tele stones are too expensive for the beginner player as well-5 is simply not enough to take the place of good wings.sword/kite/etc. change it so beginners keep their clothes and aerogear.

* prices. omg, prices. ive been in pwi many years, and played in 6 private pw servers, and never have i seen water for pets cost 2700 coins each!! everywhere ive ive played, pet food prices have always been the same as in pwi-52 coins for water, 740 coins for seseme oil. but here? i cried when i saw the astounding markup- water for2,700 coins EACH, and sesame oil for 36,800 each!!! venos have to buy both in bulk, usually carrying 2-300 of each. at this cost, its not possible to play a veno here. if someone really hated venos, and wanted to be sure none played here, the surest way would be to make it nearly impossible to afford food for pets. the same goes for other basic necessities in the game. the best advice i can offer is to see what the usual prices are on pwi and on the average private server, and adjust to that, please.

* npcs selling mounts, flights, fashion weapons. these, too, are seen on all private servers we have been on, and i can tell you, the mount npc is the most popular! :D guys especially cluster around that npc, then are seen racing around archo in their new mounts/cars/bikes/broken hen! everyone loves it! and one of the first stops every beginner makes is to the flights npc, to upgrade from beginner/timed aerogear to faster, permanent wings,mount/etc. npcs for old pwi fashion are popular too, were players can get stuff to wear, and the newest fashions are for sale on the gold shop, at prices that wont beggar the player, but you have to have your other priorities straight first. same goes for top of the line mounts and flights.

* fashion weapons- ive gotten these on other servers, and while they are initially expensive, they are yours to keep. last night, i got notifications that the rose bow and rose wand i bought are about to time out....i was amazed, and at once went to the gold shop to see if there was any sign or notification that these are not permanent items. what is the point of wasting gold on something you will have only a few days? what if the player has a very good weapon, but its fugly beyond words? please, if you cant see your way to bringing down the price, at least make the item permanent.

ok, this is enough for now....i have other ideas-what GM doesnt!(yes i was a GM in two other servers :) ) and i sincerely hope my suggestions can be of help here.

I think should allow solo in TT in Squad mode insted of require 4 more people to go. I need some gold material to craft G13 item but in newbie dungeon they drop random mats int TT/HH , it hard to drop what mats i need, it depend on luck :cry:

Server activity recovery suggestion guide.
I'll shoot some suggestions to cover bitter gaps I noticed the past 2 weeks playing LMSPWI. I'll be as detailed as possible on every suggestion so bare with me. As a user that had quit the server previously, I am aware of some reasons that might have led people to bail out, I will not point them out, rather, I will try to elaborate potencial solutions.


Increasing Online Activity

1 - Convincing old members to try the server again. Users have quit due to multiple reasons in the past, however, most of them are still attached to LMS's Facebook page, and this may be the only tool available to keep contact with them, and a potential solution for activity decay.
Now, we already know its harder to get new players than it is to get old ones back. What is it that made them leave? And what is it that will make them reconsider playing again? Who could answer those questions better than the players who quit themselves? That is a research that should be done using LMS's Facebook, and not the forums, old players barely visit these, and they most likely don't even know this thread exists to input their thoughts. Create a post on Facebook regarding what would they like to see in LMS.

2 - Events & Event Rewards. I have been pretty active the last 2 weeks and I can say we lack dynamic events, races, PvP tournaments, Hide & Seek, Bounty Events, etc fun stuff. We are tired of slaying monsters for gold, gold can't not get us crucial goodies for endgame advantage such as intervals or channeling bonus stats. Adding more interesting events and rewards would strongly increase server participation, trust me this.

2.2 - Notifying ongoing events with respective rewards on Facebook. Self explanatory, people will log in after seeing these.

2.3 - Facebook Exclusive Events. Lets say an old endgame player doesn't play for a while and he/she is still wearing g17, tossing out Facebook-only events every once in a while rewarding g20 armor would motivate them to play again as they would catch up with the current endgame parties.


PvP Balance

1 - Insta-casting overpowered. Who didn't ditch their class for a Sage EP or MG to one shoot everyone? VERY FEW.


Skins, Fashion, Flies, and Mounts

1 - Them new cars. Some of the new cars are extremely inproportional and distorted, they need to be reviewed. Or a drastic price drop, I spent 400 Cubi on a car that makes my character look like hes been sleeping inside a can of sardines for a month..

2 - Donator-only appearance. Remember when the special donator warsoul armour set had LMSPW tags in it? dedicated details like that would not only make the donators happy but it would potentially increase your donation ratio.


Staff

1 - GM Profiling. Having GM profiles clarifying useful information such as their timezone/usual time online, and spoken languages for easy access to foreign-speaking users.

2 - GM anonymity. If you haven't noticed yet, a vast number of players are concerned about the leaking information (assuming that it is confidential) regarding GMs and their respective regular accounts/characters. In my own opinion (and I already am aware that other users share the same) even if it doesn't affect GMs on their regular gameplay, it does affect players, and overall server behaviour. Players will start drama with potencial false accusations about GMs and spread it to their friends, causing a huge trend to blame GMs for some happenings. A rule among the staff about keeping their identities secret would solve the issue. If this is as intended by the staff, then forgive me, but I am still against it.


Forgive me if I have pointed out something that was mentioned before, or something that is no longer an issue. More can be added in the future but for now I am more concerned about regaining the attention of old users. I hope you take your time to analyse every input, having said that, the server is fun and the staff is nice, but it doesn't hurt to improve it just a little bit more.

Good Luck!

[font=Comic Sans MS]Hello Everyone.
i have play the server for 5 years or so , this is the first huge change i have see (since i play). but therer are some issues that arent going well.
1.- Insta EPs: they are so nice for the ones who got those neck and belt. but surely they are OverPOwered, i have see inta EPs Tanking x2 insta EPs? wtf lol its like they will never die on that insta heals, actually i am playing my Werebeast, my damage is good , good aps too but cant kill an insta EP , they heal and buff while i att , they dont get stuns that easy but when they do the insta heal makes them inmune to damage .-. still getting heal while stunned.

ADDs that should be in game
- i would really love the game if the SHIFT+CLICK works on server , so we just do it to show our sales and buys.
- will be really nice if LMS adds AUTO-POTION , will be soo usefull , its kinda annoying to try to click Pots while trying to survive a mage class.


- about Wb. i think the speed is good but Wbs were considered OP while 4aps its because the only way to get that speed is spark, but if it becomes 2.86 and 3.33 sparked will be nice , so we dont need to spark to get a great aps and it wont be OP `cause its normal damage.
- Insta EA were so great last time they worked , i really enjoy insta EA's. At the moment are kinda useless , all classes Kill EA's even Wr's with WS bows (have ever seen this in x1000).-. , they will be balanced with insta as they were , insta least only 5 seconds so its not OP but usefull.
[/font]


i hope you all enjoy it 8-)
