    This post may be seen as an attempt for drama, but I honestly need to get my thoughts out in the open. I have Ultima's best intentions in mind and honestly it's heartbreaking to see Ultima in the state that it is. I enjoy most of the people here and have fun playing here. This isn't to stir up drama, I only just hope this serves as a wake up call to Larva. Ultima's lead admin, Larva, is effectively killing his own server. Countless suggestions have been ignored/shot down even though 90% of the server base has backed them. I realize it's his server and he can do whatever he want, but whatever he's doing now is obvious not working. Ultima barely peaks over 50-60 during the week, and that's even with Happy Hour. I've seen others servers, as of lately, peak at almost 150 people, probably more. Things I see that contribute to its decline: Lead admin is hardly around, except during events. Events are often started late/ended late because of this. EVP buff is a blatant cash-grab for donations looking into from the outside. It may have no been the intentions of the server, but it drives away people from playing because it just looks like you almost have to donate just to hit anything when starting out. Repeat abusers of the forums go unpunished/unbanned. There are users with several warnings who go unbanned or unpunished, therefore leaving them to continue trolling. Perhaps a 3-strike rules within a certain time-frame could be something that could be implemented in the future to prevent frequent abusers. End-game gear is event only. PGF is only available during Christmas, a time where many people are busy visiting family over the holidays. Even if you have more time, the rate is usually obscene to where you're lucky if you get one. If you don't have time or aren't lucky enough, you're either forced to trade for one, or just try again next year. It has been suggested countless times to add this to the drop-tables year round, even at a difficult rate, but it's been ignored countless times. This is especially inexcusable when Olga Flow drops nothing 3/4 of the year except when they add event drops to his drop table. Lead admin is very impatient. Lately, valid criticisms have been seen as $/%tposting or attempts to cause drama in his eyes. Honest criticism and suggestions have been responded with malice and labeled as $/%tposting even though the original poster had no intentions as such. In conclusion. It's been exhausting as well as almost heart-breaking to see Ultima's status as of the last few months. There has been an increased amount of drama(that I realize I'm guilty of contributing to it), events have been starting/ending late. 5x exp has lasted months at a time. It's all just declining. When I started back in 2015, we had active GMs(Soly, Cyane, and kind of Kajex and Mio), events started on time. Drama was a bit more rare, although it still was pretty prevalent. But now we only really have Mio and R-78(I appreciate them both for putting in the hard work that they do), and drama is almost every other day. I would LOVE to see this server be the best that it could be, but honestly I'm not sure if it'll even get there at this rate. I reiterate that this isn't a drama post or an attempt to stir up something, it's an honestly post listing grave concerns of a server I've come to know and care about over the almost 4 years I've been here. I don't doubt this'll be deleted/locked soon after posting, but I please encourage Larva to read this with an open heart.

    Ok let me recap a little historic for you since you keep mentioning me: July 12 - https://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/topic/33629-summer-event-player-made-drop-table-2019/&do=findComment&comment=213595 https://imgur.com/a/xQ4xxKg July 12 just a couple of hours later - https://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/topic/33656-thoughts-on-serene-swan-and-impending-nerf/ https://imgur.com/a/E6EAJni 22 july - https://www.phantasystaronline.net/forum/index.php?/topic/33735-serene-swan-vs-ultima/ https://imgur.com/a/gzUJoO4 My introduction is crystal clear, so the Edens one does. Please spot the difference between a constructive friendly topic and a trolls friendly one. I spent some time to construct my opinion on this weapon and writing my post. Now quit mentioning me in your point of view without respect.

    I think for a GM to work or any type of admin would need to be someone neutral to the community. As you guys can tell soly is very neutral. He’s not buddy buddy with people. Which is a quality any GM or admin should have. Just my hunble LGBTQAP opinion.

    The thing is. There’s no suitable person to help larva out the way we need it. Soly is the obvious #1 choice and he doesn’t want to. Anyone else just isn’t right for the job.

    Sorry to derail the impending shitstorm. We had confirmation from R-78 that it was not going to be nerfed. Therefore people thought it was safe to go ahead and max theirs out. Nerfing this after a confirmation like that is extremely poor judgement, at least without compensation to those who donated/sold things just to max this weapon out.

    Its literally like Terror tries his best to take whatever point hes trying to make and destroy it by being and asshat, I don`t think hes real at all in fact I think its all an act. Nobody could possibly be that ignorant. Literally Terror is saying "It was alot of words and too long for me to read so I didn`t bother because I hate Lipeilis because people like him. I hate people that are good for the community....). Stick up for your life partner Stark1 ! I would expect nothing less!

    If they're gonna nerf this, they should go ahead and nerf Psycho Ravens while they're at it, since they're just as OP.

    Worth quitting the server for? Actually yes when the staff have that kind of mentality about these things. How is the fact it reaches the Flowers in Tower a good reason to nerf the range on Serene Swan? "Oh god a gun that's effective for other classes in Tower, lets nerf it." That is very bad reasoning, and definitely an understandable reason for people to quit the server, and probably is the reason this server's population has been declining as Mudkips has already mentioned. I on the other hand will not be quitting for such things, because I haven't reached my goal of gearing out all my 23 characters. However, I must admit that this Serene Swan situation is complete nonsense, and I am not thrilled about it. Folks should have left it alone, and done something about L&K38 Combat like Larva said he was gonna do. Anybody who is alright with the nerf to Serene Swan is nuts. Way to do it after everybody maxed theirs. Should have done it much much sooner. It's far too late for that $#"#"%. Good job.

    Dudes really gonna make me quote Larva? You didn't even have to 100% reread that thread to peep the facts. Larva: "Another idea would be to reduce speed and combo lock the weapon. To clarify, something is gonna be done to the weapon."

    I got so much dome I damaged my head when I was little, and still got brains to use. I'm a freaking sasquatch.

    Demons steal original thoughts from me, and gives them to other people they made contracts with. It's quite the comedy to me.
