    • [CHANGE] Extend item affiliation on drop.

      What I mean by that is just longer period of time for that name over your item that you dropped. It happens mostly during events when people kill metins, other stay next to them and before I pick everything up that person is stealing items that I dropped. I can't do anything about it because it doesn't have my name on it. Why not make it longer? On moonlight boxes drop it lasts like forever while from metins and monsters it lasts like few seconds. It would assure that my drop I picked up by me and only by me. Many people exploit events this way. Metins, moonlight boxes, any other event that allows you to drop many items in crowded places is affected by that sole fact. I don't think making this timer for example 30 seconds or even 1 minute would be problematic since it already happens for WAY longer on moonlight boxes drop.

    • So reduce that "extra" drop. Plus I mentioned in my other thread that extra drop is usually useless. It only obstructs my ability to pick up the item I want. Before I pick up the item I need I have to pick up other crap and by that time the timer with my name on it is over. All I care about from a metin is a book and stone, sometimes TOF and I don't care if I drop 7 other items that I don't ever need anyway. When it comes to higher level metins it's even worse, because they drop so much it takes literally 30 seconds to pick up the item I actually want.

      It's not about making game easier, I know you don't like that concept. It's only to make user interface and experience clearer.

    • You have a mouse, use it. You can just click on the yellow name you want and pick it up.

      Besides you are quite funny, if we reduce the drop, you won't have any problems to pick up what you want, but sadly 9 out of 10 times you will pick up the same item that obstracts you from collecting the item that you want.

      When it comes to high level metin there is no level 20 around you, so i don't see the problem if you use 10 seconds of your time collecting all the drops you get, unless the problem are the people who might steal your metin, which is the case why we won't raise the duration of your name on the item.

    • Since you reject the most logical solution I offer another. Reduce loot. There are level 20s when there is event. Every single time I get my loot stolen during it and laughted straight in my face because loot "just is there" without my name on it.

      Do you even read what I write Shadow? I can't pick my items with mouse because some of them are larger than other and obstruct the ability to pick them up. You still didn't even answer my question that I asked multiple times. What's the purpose of moonlight boxes loot being so long on the ground then?

      You didn't give any real reason why it's bad idea to implement it. It wouldn't make gameplay easier, it would make life easier.

    • Try to moderate your tone. It is stated on the rules clearly that if your suggestion is not accepted you can crash your head on the wall, curse to the sky, throw the keyboard on the floor, but never give hard time to the Admins.

      Moving on, I already said that raising the time will just reduce the pvp. Why should we give you additional protection on the farming? There is no penalty when you die from a player, if we raise the time of the loot you can just stay there, getting some hit or run a bit around to avoid major damage and collect all the loot in peace, killing the attempt of anybody who tried to rob your loot, which is part of the game.

      Why the moonlight is a bit longer? I don't know, you often mistake that i created this game lol. Does it create the same issues? No because it is 99% a drop from a monster which may drop you just 2 items at once. So even if the name is 1 second or 200 seconds, you won't have troubles to pick it up.

    • My tone is calm. You're the one ( you were ) ignoring my question. I know the rules and I'm not trying to rush through with my idea telling you to implement it. You think it's bad? Good. Just explain why not. You're a community manager for christ's sake. I fail to understand why you're so rude towards everyone like we did something bad to you while all we do is ask questions.

      I understand it may be annoying to get asked the same questions over and over again but as a community manager you're the face of the game, you must know it because I know for a fact you're pretty smart; if you weren't you wouldn't be on your position but you seem to forget that people are just people and they are bound to ask questions which you should answer since you're the one with the "most" amount of power when it comes to communication between players.

    • I am not rude, some of you are just too arrogant to think they matter more than the others and that their ideas must be done at all costs. It is not like this. If it is a good idea we implement it, if it is bad we don't. And we are not forced to give explanations about it, I just do it out of courtesy but maybe i shouldn't as it seems that whenever I say we won't do it, it wounds you deeply. Just for the record i answered your question on the first post, of why i don't want to raise the time, but you just don't want a no as answer so it seems.

      To describe better your attitude, and the attitude of similiar players who argue with me on this section, is the same as a little kid who screams and roll on the floor because his mother doesn't buy the candy he just saw. I am not rude for denying you the candy, you are the one rude for not accepting the no.

      I don't have any problem to answer a question 1000 times, what bothers me is saying no to the same question 1000 times, in less than 10 minutes.

    • You fail to recognise that people might not agree with you. In this case I don't agree because you seem to think we play in a sterile environment that you created and all players obey rules you created. In fact that's not true. I killed probably more than 10,000 metins easily and I got involved into pvp maybe 5 times during that time only because I was on my farmer and I was weaker obviously. In addition I posted more suggestions that are more or less connected to each other and either of them would improve our gameplay.

      i don't consider anyone superior, especially myself. It's just that I simply don't agree with you and by the question I meant moonlightboxes which you at first ignored. If I don't agree with you does it mean I don't respect you? Wrong. And I told you I understood that this suggestion is considered bad by you and I'm not forcing or even trying to force it on you.

      Also it's the behaviour I'm talking about. "I don't need to answer question, it's out of my politness". As a community manager it's your job to communicate with players and answer their questions and let's be frank - there is very little trafic on forums; it's nothing compared to the real gameplay. People ask the same questions for that reason. Also they ask because there is no FAQ section on your site. Maybe just make one? You know, that tab on main site where you can click on "MEDIA" and "THE GAME" and so on. Putting FAQ somewhere there would be neat. Of course it wouldn't end all questions because many people don't even visit the site but those coming to forums would see FAQ section anyway.

    • Your problem is that you compare me and you on the same level. We are not. You are a player and i am an Admin. We are not two players discussing about an idea. We do not need to go along or agree. You can give suggestions, but the final word on it, is mine. And this should not be a reason to argue with me like you are doing and you did a lot of times. My patience is not endless.

      "My suggestion was not accepted? Too bad, I will try with another"

      This is the attitude that you must have. Which is completly different from the attitude that you have now.

      Also it's the behaviour I'm talking about. "I don't need to answer question, it's out of my politness". As a community manager it's your job to communicate with players and answer their questions and let's be frank - there is very little trafic on forums; it's nothing compared to the real gameplay.

      We do not need to answer every questions that you make regarding our business choices. You are a customer not an investor. And this is another thing that you don't have clear in your mind. If you suggest something and we don't want to do it because for example it will make us lose money, we are not forced to give this reason to you. We can simply tell you that we won't do it or even not tell anything at all and this should not be a reason to debate or argue with the Admin.

      So yes, most of the times we answers things that we shouldn't even answer, actually things that the players shouldn't even ask because they don't have to know it.

      I told you already, I don't mind answering your questions, I just think that answering once is enough :)
