  1. Just make Wilson owner dude, problem solved.
  2. I mean just like 3 weeks ago he was on the discord railing into me about how my quest was shit and terrible and I should just delete it because it was a waste of space. I can speak from personal experience here, if anybody did or said the kind of abhorrent shit that Wilson says to people on a daily basis over at Schthack they would be banned immediately. Staff or otherwise. No server tolerates the kind of thing he says to people on a daily basis like this server does. I can tolerate Wilson specifically targeting me for stuff (Staff have admitted that he goes out of his way to target me) because I’m thicker skinned than most people are but I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I said I wanted to play here with him around. I just don’t feel like I’m respected as a veteran player on this server with him target harassing me when ever he has the chances to do so while Staff just sit around and let him say whatever he wants. Whether he wants to admit it or not, he does represent the server in some way with his actions, and all people are seeing when they come to Ultima is how Wilson is acting. Wilson is just a toxic player in general. There’s no way to explain it otherwise and I won’t say that I haven’t also been toxic in the last a few times but eventually we all grow up and learn from our mistakes and be better people; that has not happened with Wilson and will likely never happen with Wilson.
  3. it went so well the last time
  4. It's easy to sit around and say that you know all about what makes a good quest because you played the game a lot. Your quest record isn't exactly extraordinary and you make it seem like being able to play a quest dozens if not hundreds of times and over the course of that play time get good at the quest means that you have any right to judge what internally makes a good quest. You don't, and anybody that plays a quest enough will eventually become good at it. The ease of learning a quest or the ability to speedrun it does not equate the quest to being too simple, that's simply not the case. Eventually everybody will learn quests. If we judged all quests by that standard then no quest is creative, no quest is good, and no quest is challenging because eventually everybody will learn it down to a tee. It's really easy to sit around and act like you know what you're talking about but you don't. We're not arguing what the best routes or tactics for speedruns are, we're discussing the internals of quest design something with all your 0 hours in Qedit and 0 quest releases is something I'm sure you can understand would seem frustrating to some one like Shiida who has thousands of hours put into the program, some pretentious speed runner telling her that her quest is lazy because spawns are all facing one single direction when there's not much else to do variance wise anyways is insulting. You are insulting the work people put in and you have no right to sit around and judge, considering, as I said, you have 0 experience with it. You're quite literally just a guy playing the quests. And I say this to anybody that takes this tactic. Have feedback, but dont insult people's hard work (and it is hard, go try using Qedit, it's a nightmare 99% of the time) because hurr durr I could spam DM during it, which is another point I'll make. DM spam, DF spam, its all the same thing. Across all servers people will use what's best and its absolutely pointless to make comments about how other people play when its just the best option. If I was on Ephinea all the rangers are using charge arms. Its just charge arms spam. On Ultima its DM, or DF. It's just dark weapon spam. On Schthack the rangers just use Bragi or Annihilator. Its just Bragi or Annihilator spam. 0 point in arguing that, 0 point in complaining about it. All people will use whats best for them. Bringing it up as a point of interest to pin people down on quest design only sounds like: "People using the best stuff in your quest and succeeding makes your quest design lazy". That makes total sense.
  5. You don't. It's way harder to do even the slightest possible thing in Qedit, and there's a lot more to a well thought out quest than how the waves are spaced or the monster diversity. It's one of many ways the quest becomes unique.
  6. Sorry Larva I forgot to ping you about starting the event this year my b
  7. Saw this change coming from a mile away; bravo to you guys for doing it and having a community that actively supports 4p games. I envy you guys lol.
  8. It's not very hard to do either. We have two separate counts of presents, one real and one not real. Real ones range from a variety of items in a set loot table for each difficulty and the presents have a set stat pool which includes singular percentages (like 31% or 26%, etc) & it also grants the opportunity to obtain Excalibur and TJS with three percentages that stick as well (albeit with a little bit of a log off-log in work around). Fake presents are basically just regular items with the "Present" untekk classification on them. They do not cause you to get the rare drop notification. We made the real presents drop at around 1/1000 on all enemies, which ends up translating really well. For added flavor, you could do what I did and change the rare item pick up text to something like, for example: "Ultima has received a rare item from Soly-claus!" or "Ultima has received a present from Shiida-claus!" etc. Mine for this year was "XYZ has received a gift from Varista-claus!". It's quite fun, and seems to lift community spirits up. I would highly recommend that you put the time and effort in to get it to work.
  9. Like with a lot of things on Ultima, you could make it an option for the players to manually turn on and off the differences in monster stats. For those interested in a harder challenge with the current boosted EVP and resistances can still turn it on but those that aren't could manually turn it off?
  10. There isn't even 800 individual people playing PSO in general right now how do you have 800 members across 5 teams?
  11. I like the general authenticity that Ultima has as a server. it's unique, I like that. Criticism (and solution I guess) is to stop all the pointless bitch complaining. Talk in chatbox and forum topics and be civil but the moment either party starts to be dicks about it just mute them and leave it. Most people here are in their mid 20's and 30's. Just act like adults. If you cant talk in a chatbox without trying to offend some one on purpose or calling people names and getting defensive you should just be muted permanently and left alone. My personal idea I guess.
  12. Starting to sound an awful lot like Emewn right now.
  13. Who woulda thought that an event catered to the literal single thing on PSO that Wilson actually enjoys somehow managed to be a complete farse because the submissions didn't cater to his retarded false sense of elitism. Who could have possibly guessed this would happen? The whole server, probably. Sad thing is I actually believed you'd be honest about this since your only redeeming quality as a PSO player is that you're passionate about TA and improvement via TA. But even this shows that's about as disingenuous as everything else you claim to be about. Between the lack of rewards for the people who participated and the blatant lack of respect you have for the other players of Shiida's team, I can't say I'm particularly surprised that you've, once again, fallen flat on your face. Last Time attack is absolutely right. Please don't try doing this again lol. It's embarrassing.
  14. Shady business practices most likely
