Comparing rape and wowmod... Okay, you must have realized that's a bit dumb.
Ok, if we start going by the "20-30% don't like it but the rest do so it's ok" mentality, we should just bring map rotation back.
Making an event where there are players at a disadvantage isn't that smart. I like the idea of bonus exp events, but you shouldn't set the drop chance down to 0. You could just leave it as it is.
Also, Tas, you have a 78 Warlock, so don't say you have all 85 when it isn't true.

I NEVER said i have everything 85; i said i dont need exp; This means i have every character on the level where they've reached their peak they can gain due to leveling (in my opinion)

During wowmod 3.X there were occasionally events like "only 60 or lower level", some admin even banned lenya for several minutes who was playing his top character. Then lenya came to me demanding that he's got rights to play his character, putting me in a position that if I don't let him play during the events and the banning admin make an official excuse he'll be out of the server with his money.
No need to say that over all time he's donated more than 1k eur, and is one of the most valuable players for the project.
Outcome was that I actually explained him that that is an event to promote the server to new players, and it works well, we have found out by now that 85 levels clog the server population drastically. So, I declined his request and well, he did not donate much since then but the point is the main objective of our server is to satisfy players, not A player.

If we will get at least twice as many new active+happy-to-contribute players thanks to these events than are lost, then I am with both hands to say sorry to those who are ignorant on our goals.

More precisely, if you, tas, are going to leave due to this event, but we get two new players I do not mind you bitching as much as you want on your priceless "omg I was unable to get reagents for 10 minutes". Fun bit is that during that event, dynamic items still drop, their chance is not under control.

It's about principle, not about 10 minutes.

If i allow this to happen once, i'd allow it to happen the next time.

I do not think the "new" players

1.

are in wowmod group

2.

notice an event that is going on unless you constantly notify them of it, and if they do and dont "gain a lot of levels from it" as they will not, they will be more likely to leave right after it. (This based on, "if i don't gain levels when it's much higher rate, i wont gain anything if it's normal")


If you want to promote the server to new players, do it with +100% exp and +-0% drops; this doesnt hurt anyone - it doesn't make any one leave, but those who need it will play or be more interested. Those in need of farm stay and farm, and you don't piss them off for no reason.

You are misinterpreting the event, it is "high level free event"

As I am concerned, Porta is events team leader hence decides on the events.

Or do you actually claim that you play an 85 for the exp?

Solution: Make it into 50% instead of 0% (?) making it into a "rather go lowbie" than "go lowbie or die" event :P
Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired.
