I don't want to start any rumours, so let's keep the discussion tight and not beyond this forum. This is a newish idea, and there is a lot of vested interest in PD as it is now, eg tyler with his humungous char and other ppl who have paid a LOT of money to keep their guys alive.
Actually it would be more interesting if it was wiped (ie reset) monthly or at longest quarterly ...j0int wrote:i acualy think pd should be wiped and wiped once a year and the top ten players should get some kind of prize
Sometimes this is how I feel reg should run too. Not all the time. There could be a huge debate on the theories of all this (I spend a lot of time thinking about this sort of thing) and there isn't really a right or wrong answer. Sorry to bring up wiping reg, let's not talk about it, as it ISN'T going to happen.
Anyway, It's the people off the scoreboard who tend to want pd to be wiped, for the obvious reason they want to get on the scoreboard. But j0int's 'idea' (actually diablo 2 has been running a ladder for years, and I have been thinking about this myself) makes me wonder about having PD reset regularly, with a scoreboard & prizes.
Also with wipes, game design becomes more interesting. There is less reason to grind. Drops could be much better. There could be rare game changing items - what about permanent transmutation? Much could be lifted from roguelikes, now that PD is not only perm death, but limited to time - so there really is an end, one way or another.
I could probably negotiate this with whoever has stones, I don't there would be that many at the moment who have bought stones still.egg wrote: Then there is the big prob of bought res stones, I don't have a record of who bought what. I'd assume there wouldn't be many though. Magrock has a shitload of stones. And what about bought res's - ion just paid a fair amount for a res for example.
Again I could probably negotiate this with these players.However, if the top 10 people on the scoreboard unanimously post for a wipe then I will do so.
