Any evidence of XP roll back yet

The longer this whole episode goes on, I suspect is HASN'T been corrected because it CAN'T be corrected. If a back-up wasn't performed, as rumored, then when was their last one? And does it make any sense to roll it back to their previous back-up (1 week, two weeks, a year?)?

Apologies to anyone who listened

I'm afraid my whole decision-making process was not complementary to GAS. I remember thinking that I needed to participate in the uber XP hunt because, either HWT intended it, or that they didn't, and through incompetence, might let it stand. It turns out HWT was much more screwed up than I imagined. They don't intend to let it stand, but have no concept (apparently) how to correct the situation. The whole blaming it on the players thing is a stroke of genius, however. "It's your fault that I'm ...

Help! - non game technical issue

Heya, it works! Thanks for the advice, Penelope. There was a recommended BIOS setting in the card set-up documentation, but when I went back to look at it, it had to be wrong; figured out the right one, and walah!

Help! - non game technical issue

I've been trying to install a new PNY (GeForce) video card in my POS vista machine which has an onboard video chipset. I have plenty of power, the problem is that when the new card is installed, the monitor screen is black upon restart. If the card is unplugged and the machine is restarted, everything is fine. I've tried to install the drivers without the card in, but have not been successful. I've tried to change the BIOS settings to AVI, per PNY technical support recommendations, with no chang...

Unique Weapons

Possession of the uniques don't seem to be a problem in the worlds I play, though, granted, I only play in older worlds. They seem to be exchanged often. I know that I both get and give them regularly and have lost all three in a 10 minute period more than once.

lost battle end perf win streak =(

Holy Random Factor, Batman! I wish I'd saved this report, but I remember losing to a guy 25 levels below me and more than 500 stat points less, and me at full health and fully equipped and him at 3/4 health. I was just doing a standard SF fight and noticed that I'd won around 4K gold and was going to send it on to my order, when I realized I'd LOST. I was charmed, though I did send the reportt to the order and they won most of the gold back.

How the game has changed

Ummm, this is me trying to change the subject back to the orginal thread. One of the things that I thought might happen (about 50 levels back), that has happened, is the bunching of people at the top, both in level and statistics. It makes sense; the dedicated "stayers" are efficient in work time and plundering and the limiting factors of relatively higher cost of stats and lessened availability of xp at the very top of either category allows those below to catch up. The overall differences betw...

Selling Strongest W2 Account -- SOLD!!! :)

I've been doing more thinking about this: If you are considering purchasing this account, you should be aware that the owner of this account is held in utter contempt by many in W2 for cheating. If HWT does the right thing, this character could potentially be fined millions (gold) for multi-accounting and illegally acquired mercs fees. Also, it would be consistant with the behavior of this owner of this account to "buy" his own account, then attempt to "rehab" himself in the eyes of W2. Any "new...

Most efficient use of gold for stats?

Quoted from "The Black Knight" Jeez Louise... Since when does Falco get credit for my strategy? He used to upgrade his equipment a lot more often than I did, back in w4. And now it's called the "Falcotron approach?" What does a guy gotta do to get some credit around here? This is Falcotron's fault (goes without saying, hmmm?). I hadn't realized he'd stolen it from you, when I borrowed it from him.

Most efficient use of gold for stats?

My initial thought when I read this thread was that I wish I'd had this information when I was starting the game, but that the information isn't all valid for those starting the game new. Anyone starting out begins at least 38 levels out (W and up to 99 levels out (W1/2), which changes a lot of things. I have other, competitive characters and if I were starting my only character, I would play it differently, but here's some newbie in old world advice: Have a goal for when your character will be ...

Most efficient use of gold for stats?

Good bump, Noble. I hadn't seen this thread, before, and wish it'd been around when I first started playing. I spent a lot of time dithering and made an abundance of errors learning the game. My early experience was in W2, as a Saracen, and I began when the leaders were around level 30. Here are some of my (early) errors: - I bought equipment and horseys because they looked cool (still do for that matter; I drool over the 100 level weapon), and I changed my mind often - I spent a LOT of time hau...

More fun in W2

I noticed Sir Matthew has been deleted: There's a great deal of irony here. I've been working on the cheating for a long time in W2, mostly appealing to the AC/OM's of the Christian orders to just play honestly. One practice that I'd seen extensively in KG and ENR was the inserting of clearly inactive players into battles. I remember Sir Matthew (OM or AC) appealing to his high moral character and how could I accuse him of such a thing, and all his players were active, and etc. And... he was a m...

Update on my "Experimental" character

It's been a month since my initial post on this topic and I have nothing to do before a HB, so I thought I'd update it. I am now at level 50 (MassMRDR is a 94), with stats averaging 87, the same equipment (Dragon Sword, Leather 2, and Leather Sallet, this stuff is just so I can win SF's with 300 lp, or so), and no horse. I've tentatively decided to buy the level 80 horse, but have to wait for the leaders to get to level 100 so that I can pick up a used nag when someone exchanges for the level 10...

On my experimental character

Gentlemen, I want to thank you for an interesting discussion of the issues involved and problems. The gross xp number is the biggest issue, it seems, so the rate of xp/day is critical. I've dramatically stepped up the number of hp hits I'm making per day and I've moved up my plan to go full-blown on xp hunting (by winning fights) to level 50. At that point I'll buy the Akaal and superstat it. It seems best to get through those long stretches between 50 and 60 and then 60 to 70 without pay increa...

The mathematics of horseys

"You will undoubtedly be dead most of the time whether you are online or not if you choose to use this approach, and probably get killed by anyone your level and probably hit for easy experience by many people from below your level. I think you are going to need a LOT of elixirs if you plan to do this." Starting many levels behind the leaders, it is impossible to be competitive at every level and catch up. My idea is not not be competive UNTIL I've caught up (converting the gold at some future t...

My Experimental Character, the "No Horse" option

I'm "developing" a W1 character without buying any horses or equipment (I do have a dragon sword, leather 2, and a leather defender, which I bought at minimum). I was curious to know if the leaders could be "caught" (getting within 10 levels of the leaders who were at 85 at the time, ), starting with a new character, while still having competitive stats at that future time. The only way it seemed reasonable to do this was to power level and never spend gold; therefore, no horse and no equipment....

So, I'm considering tixxing

I'm sick and tired of being pounded by John the Great in xp attacks. There is now an easy solution - tixxing! If Falcotron's figures (and my interpretation of them) are correct, JtG's total stat gold value is 11,010,822 and mine is 6,631,506 for a difference of 4,379,316, which at 16000 g/ticket works out to 274 tickets, and would cost me $1142. Hmmm. Wonder what my wife would say when she saw charge card balance?

Let me limit my statement; I can only comment with any real authority about W2 Saracens (all) and Christians above my level (80), and a very llimited knowledge of W1. I haven't noticed ANY tixxing. There have to be underlying reasons for this that we, oldworlders, share (besides just being pissed off). The most important one is that tixxing just doesn't make any sense unless you are committed to it, in a big way. The problem with tixxing, at any level, is that it just pushes the cost of the next...
