  1. A very dear friend has passed too soon. I'll miss you brother hero 😢
  2. This is dreadful news. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family. He is an amazing person and we have chatted a few times about his guides, and nothing was too trivial to explain. I'm just in shock.
  3. I can testify that LGBTQ+ characters and players are totally welcome, and anyone who experiences any kind of unpleasantness should put a ticket in, with names, dates, times and if possible screen shots so we can investigate properly. As much as possible we try to be inclusive to all, and we do take any abuse seriously. As Jimmy has said though, we don't disclose what (if any) action is taken against someone, and this often leads people to think we aren't doing anything. The opposite is true, we investigate all accusations.
  4. This yoghurt is delicious. Oops, sorry Jimmy was this one yours?
  5. That's really posh. I'm dragging out my ZX81
  6. So far it seems to work fine. It's actually quite wonderful. I think there is an issue with XP and Win7 not showing the server status, but from what I can understand, being a not technical at all person, that's being looked at. Apart from that, there are a few small tweaks still to go but nothing launch breaking. Some of the GM's have tested it on win xp and win7, linux and mac. As well as win 10. Once it's ready for beta release to the wider public you can try to break it, but so far it seems pretty unbreakable 🙂
  7. As of right now the policy on streaming hasn't changed. When it does Jimmy will make an announcement. Until that time, I'm afraid the ban is still in place. The admin team are very aware of the popularity of live streams, but at the moment it's still a no I'm afraid.
  8. Can I just say, I'm just as much in the dark as you guys, but I'm really excited 🙂
  9. I'm a GM and I'm no wiser 🙂 "My first is in woodwork, but not in canoe"..... 😛
  10. As far as I'm aware we haven't changed drop rates at all on AE. As a few people have said, it's just random. The chance of getting a drop, then the percentage chance of a particular rarity. I also have a farmer and some days I get a purple or two, then I go through a streak of getting none of them. The chances of getting a good drop increase the fewer players in AE. Drops are spread out amongst the people in the team so the fewer in the team the more drops per alt, and the higher the chance of a good drop. You will also find a drop in XP and inf as it's spread between the actual number of people. So solo +4/8 those 8 people worth of enemies is going to drop more per person than having physically 8 people present. It's not an increase per se, but the sheer volume of enemies on the map.
  11. You are quite correct. You still technically get the drop but you don't receive it. It's not replaced with something better.
  12. Of course its a nemesis plot. I thought you knew?
  13. If I'm running a fresh team I'll start the first mission on +1 or +2 with players consent. Then see how we go. If we romp through I'll adjust it upwards, if we struggle I'll drop it down. It's the team leaders responsibility to make sure everyone is having fun and to adjust the difficulty accordingly. As long as you have at least a couple of good damage dealers a team of mostly support can sometimes run much higher difficulty than you would expect. I've been the only tank in a team of controllers and defenders and had almost nothing to do as the rest of the team has locked down and AoE'd everything to death before I've finished hitting my one target 🙂
  14. Hi!! Welcome home 🙂 Just to add to the general conversation, learn to use the Auction house. Just type /AH anywhere outside a mission. It might seem a bit daunting but as a general rule orange salvage will fetch around half a million inf a time, give or take a hundred thousand. Recipes are an odd group, some will fetch a fortune, others will fetch barely a couple of hundred inf. Learn how much stuff sells at a shop or vendor then decide if you want to sell it in the AH or the shop. Personally I sell white and yellow salvage at a shop and orange salvage on the AH, then check each recipe by dropping it into the AH window and clicking find. Sometimes I have to click a few times for it to come up as it's temperamental. Sometimes crafting an enhancement from the recipe can make you far more than just selling the recipe, but it's a case of if it's worth the extra cost for components and crafting costs to whether it's worth it. A purple recipe will generally fetch around 10 to 14 million, and the crafted enhancement will fetch around 20 million. If you have the components handy then it can be worthwhile crafting, otherwise sometimes it's just more cost effective to sell the recipe.
