Why the Exaltation Forge is Lack Luster

2022.01.18 13:09 Cycle_Agreeable Why the Exaltation Forge is Lack Luster

CipSoft has openly stated that the major goal of the Exaltation Forge was to serve as a gold and item sink. It was not created with the intent of bringing massive player power, or to create an engaging system, but as a way to counter issues that they created in the past. The goal was to create a system that would correct the economy while increasing player power by as little as possible (as to not counter the sink).
Cip has a problem, In the past they have tried to create gold sinks (such as imbuements), but the result in this was the creation of more inflation, as the systems resulted in increased profits, more ability to hunt solo, and hunt new spawns way too early. The result is that the gold sink turned into a massive skyrocket of inflation. Furthermore, by stacking all the external systems, players have multiplied the effect. Players are able to stack charms, preys, imbuements, etc to turn crazy amounts of profit and experience. It should also be noted that the Char Bazar has also contributed to this, as almost anyone can just buy a high level char and start farming high level hunts and making profit right away, or they can go into the same hunts with much higher skills, resulting in even more profit.
In a real world economy this massive increase to people hunting would have resulted in the bottoming out of the value of farm items, but with the use of NPC vendors, there is a firm price ceiling in place. Cip has artificially fixed the economy by ensuring that the millionth zaoan legs are still able to be sold at 14k a piece. At the same time, player costs have not scaled to the same level. Cip has artificially fixed player costs by implementing a price floor. Regardless of how low the supply is for mana pots on the auction house the price will never go above the shop price (unless people are super lazy, in which it might go a little higher). The result of this is a continuous pouring of more money. With a drastically increasing money supply, people are investing in better equipment, skills, and char power, which results in even more money being injected into the economy.
Furthermore, Cip created a "generation" of bosses that can be farmed every 20 hours for the chance to get super rare and valuable items. Unlike in the past, where these items would have been the result of completing some quest, people have the opportunity to continuously farm these items. This resulted in a highlight of another weakness of the game. Some of these super hard to get items were worthless. In the past, you would just do the quest, then choose the item that was worth the most and sell it. But, now you are just stuck with the crap item. This meant that it was ridiculously easy to get fairly cheap gear if you were able to break from the masses (such as club users). This is bad twofold, as it feels really sh*tty to do soul war and get a 1h mace as a result, and mace users are able to jump in power for a very low investment, resulting in even more gold/items being introduced to the economy.
Enter the Exaltation Forge. The forge offers incredibly small power increases, so small that everyone has been complaining, while costing millions in gold and hordes of items. The power gained by the forge has been intentionally made super small, with the concern that making it larger would compound the current issue. While we lack empirical evidence, it is probably likely that the forge was also intended to target the top 1% as due to the extreme wealth inequality, the vast majority of the money is held by a very small group of players (think Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos). This would be in line with the current issues of guild power abuse, the initial costs of new items and comments that have been made by high levels.
The result of the forge is not intended to be player power but a redistribution of wealth and to combat inflation. Will this work? who knows... we will have to wait and see. It seems to me that Cip is too afraid to make any risky changes to their game. They realize that they have created a money maker and don't want to risk the game dying out completely. I would assume that Cip created a lot of these systems with good intents, they just did not factor player behavior properly. They probably thought that the prey system was a good way to incentivize players to hunt in less optimal spots, not realizing that players would just fix preys and spend lots of money to hyper optimize their gameplay. But let's not kid ourselves, Cip created the rope that they are now franticly trying to cut before it hangs them. They added prey cards to the store. They choose to take the easy route and not rock the boat. And now they are suffering the consequences of it.
TL;DR: The forge was not made to be an engaging gameplay system, but as a way to correct the economy without increasing player power too much. They are assuming that you will just chase the carrot regardless of how little it improves your char power.

2022.01.18 13:09 TheSgnDen [QC] Omega Seamaster NTTD - ORF - JTime Second Attempt after an RL

This is my 2nd try with this one. I RL'd the first one as the pip was too far off and the 12 o'clock markers were clealry tilted/misaligned. Sooo...I'd appreciate opinions on this one. Thanks!
My first Omega rep...appreciate thoughts on GL worthy or not.
1.Dealer name: JTime
2.Factory name: ORF
3.Model name: Omega NTTD
4.Album Links: https://mega.nz/foldeqB40WRBC#fv0VaMg0WsPHnlcB7fSzcA/foldeDNpw1Z4I
5.Index alignment: Looks OK to me
6.Dial Printing: Looks good to me
7.Date Wheel: NA
8.Hand Alignment: Not sure how to evaluate this
9.Bezel: The indicator at the 15 location (3 o'clock) appears to be off. Too low and not directly aligned with the one at 9 o'clock.
10.Solid End Links (SELs): Looks good to me - If this applies with this bracelet?
11.Timegrapher numbers: Sorry, I am not sure how analytical to get here is +4 seconds too much?

  1. Lume: There is no photo in the dark
13: Anything else you notice: The bracelet edge doesn't appear to be nicely finished but I could be nit picking a subjective matter. I understand it's staineless and NOT titanium like a Gen.

2022.01.18 13:09 sarahpurity777 Graphic Novel - Many stories in one book in different art styles by different authors

I remember reading this book obsessively in middle school/high school. There may have been more than one volume. What I can remember is that it was slightly raunchy and very very weird in certain comics. The cover I believe also had a large cartoony looking woman’s face on it with maybe a light purple background and other weird things going on like abstract art. The only two stories I can remember from it were a story about a man waking up and discovering he is sort of like a ghost so he floats through his apartment, out the window and into the sky. Another story was a frog prince retelling where things go wrong in the end not the like the famous regular story. And then I vaguely remember a story where a women (or man) ends up in a room with a bunch of copies of himself.

I've been wanting to play MP, but a few things turn me off:

  1. Extremely scarce loot
  2. Server wipes
  3. Lag
  4. Need to talk(?)
  5. Lack of mods that I love to play with
What are the opinions thus far?

2022.01.18 13:09 Imgunnacrumb69 Update on Becky

We are holding a memorial service for Becky, the orange tabby, at Martin’s on Thursday after mom gets off. It’s the weird looking gas station that no one really ever goes to. If anyone is interested in attending there will be donut holes granted, with moms current mental state, they probably won’t taste all that great.
Moms words
“If anybody would like to RSVP just go to the gas station tonight, and shout your name as loud as possible to the apartment above, and I will write it down on a slip of paper and put it in a sandwich baggy. We will have a drawing at the end of the service and the winner gets a free cat bed and collar.”
Thanks all.
