I kicked a Bat statue , everything got black Bats and a wyvern (lvl40) attacked me and i couldnt do nothing even with a town portal right next to me, maybe it was a bat blocking me or i was paralysed because i tried to hide (shadowmelt) too.

So I played a bit new weekly PD recently and I must say it's great. Several years ago thread about EUO based roguelike was raised on forums and weekly PD is pretty much as I imagined it back then. I'm very positively suprised about random dungeon generator, it's way better than I thought it will be. Dungeons are quite diverse both by style/shape and theme. Only thing more I'd love to see here (and not only here but on other servers as well) are artifacts with randomly generated properties :smile:

Anyway hats off! :heart:

I guess I should set up auto-wipes (monthly I think), but need to figure out the prize. Since it can be finished in <1 day and that many people can finish it, I don't think it should be a race - but what should you get for finishing it? 50AC per account (so you can't finish it more than once per month)? Unsure of character transfers to NG though, esp with all that amazing gear you find.

After feedback and simple suggestions for prizes or whatever.

50 AC for 1st, then 25 for 2nd and 3rd. I feel like its an easier weekly PD to win than the older ones, since it isnt about who grinded the most. Although I love this version, its pretty fun.

Well, if you do placement then you might want to decide on how placement is decided. Yeah, anyone can just sit around and kill stuff to get to first place. If it records your xp tally and fastest time that seems reasonable.

But, on the other hand... 50 AC a month for a win is a good incentive for people to play weekly then jump onto another server after winning. There's hardly that many people on anyways so I don't think it'd break anything. Try out your idea and if its overly cheesy then go to placement.

I just know someone will mention (transfer of an item.... but man.. artifacts grow like fruit on trees on weekly... again whatever is agreed on I'm game.).

Wasn't sure but I guess KOP still doesn't work. Wasn't sure if it was patched or not.

Monthly wipe and 50ac prize to people that finish sounds great to me. Excited to play new weekly/monthly again but I've been waiting for a wipe.

I still think the option of transferring characters that beat the server sounds cool; but it might be too big of a pain or unbalanced.

I think a xfer sounds good on paper, but there are tons of problems I don't feel like worrying about:
* limiting how many get transferred
* what gear/stats get xferred
* how cheesy will it get
yeh, too hard basket
