Now i started to play with music again (despite the crashes) and realised there's almost no ambient/background music. I found some old ryzom atmosphere musics for different continents, so here's a pack for the IG MP3 player with those musics, to be unpacked into your Ryzom folder:

Lil explanation about meta RP:

Meta RP is the difference between what THE PLAYER see and what your TOON see. For example: If we meet: You can read that i'm Mithian, you, the player, but... Laoviel can't read it, she just see a Tryker.

So, with an helmet, it can be a Kara, a Kami or whatever you want. If the toon don't say i'm Marau, you're not supposed to know it. That's Meta RP and that's why it was used on the topic. It wasn't used as an excuse or whatever you want it to be.

About kills on a Vortex or when running out from a TP while being tagged, it happen for everyone and by every faction.

Oh and, btw... Keep your " fellow Marauder" for yourself. I'm not Marauder IRL and, Forum is out of RP place. ;) ( or at least, this section :)]]>

At 1080p, max settings with 8x nvida aa, high quality in the control panel, and max ryzom settings i only get 100, and that is using 100 percent of my gpu, and around 15 percent of my 4.5 ghz 6700k.... if I am not using my shadow, and use the laptop I get around 20-25 fps at 1080 max settings 8x aa, high quality radeon settings.

Personally, I get the sort of framerates you get using a far lower percentage of my 1050Ti. But most of us either have 60hz monitors that make such high framerates irrelevant or are picky enough about gaming to already have nothing less than a GTX1070 in the first place and probably just traded twin-1080Tis-in-SLI for 2080Ti.
So In conclusion, I don't recommend buying any graphics card any more, if you have fast internet, because you can get a high end gaming computer for a low monthly fee, and they upgrade their systems.

The shadow cloud computer I use gets around 60-70 fps at max settings 8x aa, high quality at 4k resolution. Which in turn means I can get that on my laptop, making gaming computers useless.

Some of us have issues with cloud computing. Exactly what those issues are varies from person to person, but many of those issues revolve around a not-always-top-notch connection to a remote system that is not under your control. At best, it adds latency; not so much an issue for Ryzom as for other games, but I would rather not add 50-500ms latency to my single-player games. We won't even get into the privacy issues except to say that, justifiably or not, they are a concern for many.

Then there is the monthly fee aspect; Shadow is not a charity. At $35/month, it would take less than a year for a modest gaming PC to pay for itself with the savings. A mere 5 months would cost more than a 1050Ti.

Also, it's only available in certain areas. VERY few, in fact. Ironically, you'd think that Microsoft's hometown (Redmond, WA) would be one of the areas with access to that technology, but it's not available in the state.

In short, Shadow may be worthwhile to those in a limited geographical area who insist on paying a premium to play on laptops or Macs that are inherently weak for gaming due to their lack of GPUs and who lose more than $35 in their sofa every month, but not for those that have a desktop PC built within the last 5 years or who even notice household expenses in their personal finances.]]>

the day has finally arrived; Echoes is opening its doors to new members; we are going public.

After operating from the shadows for about a year now; the love-child of Revvy and Myself; our Guild; is recruiting *potential* members.

The modus operandi and the workings of this guild are and will remain unconventional; this Guild was made to break conventional RP and norms; this guild was made to promote Freedom and Individuality among its members; as such everyone is free to do whatever she or he wants in Echoes; we actively want you to cultivate and promote your individuality and your game-play as you see fit.

General Details

Religion: Neutral
Faction: Neutral (GL is Marauder)
Time Zone: Europe
Languages: English
RP/PvP; optional but highly encouraged
GH: Located in Yrkanis.

Echoes Structure; Activities; Requirements; Objectives


Echoes has no religion; no allegiances; we are the echo of an innocence lost; we are the echo of hominity lost; we are Echoes.

As such; While myself I am a Marauder; Neutrals and Rangers are welcomed. Exceptions for hominas or homins of other factions can be made. This guild was conceived to be a beacon of highly unique, fun-loving, carefully selected individuals, that want to group together under the same banner; feeling free to play the game as they see fit.


Boss hunting
Sup digging
Chanchey NPC Hunt
OP Wars (More on that below)

Echoes was, is, and will be: A rather top-end guild; mostly directed towards veteran player and returning players: As such I do not look forward, or desire to, participate in training parties, mass digging activities, and other stuffs like that. Everyone should be able to pull her or his own weight while here, that's what being autonomous is all about.

On that end; I have gone to tremendous lengths; and hence why Echoes is being made public today; to ensure that no-one in my guild will ever have to dig to get the best gear, to hunt to get boosted gear, or to get anything; or to craft it for that matter; myself I am a multi-master in many crafts; and Loorna is master in all crafts.

This was all done so no-one would ever have to participate in anything he/she doesn't want to; and unite with the rest of the group "forcefully" only during OP wars.


Echoes has no restrictions; there is nothing you should be doing while in this guild; nothing you should not be doing. Do as you wish, play as you wish, play with who you wish. Experience Atys the way you want. You do not have to hunt for sups; you do not have to hunt for bosses. Just gather for OP war and prove your mettle and that's it.

There is only Objective in this guild and a rather straight-forward one:

My aim with going public is simple: Be the de-stablizing factor that puts an end to Kami dominance; and if the times change; to anyone else's dominance for that matter.

What I aspire to is:

Field a team of veterans, returning players, or relatively-new but willing members; that do not want to do be Guildless, or are unsatisfied with Guild politics or Faction politics and unite them under a unique banner, the Echoes banner.


Echoes wants to be a top-end guild; capable of fielding a highly skilled team to participate in OP wars and top-end content.

As such we are looking for rather experienced members; capable of holding on their own.

The Echoes are Coming for you;

Be an Echo today;

Send a tell to Northstar (GL) or Loorna (HO) for details.]]>

From the steam login attempt log, It seems that firewall, router, or router firewall does not allow the comms to shard.

There has been issues with some routers in the past that do not like Ryzom small UDP packets at all. They either block them or drop them after timeout (ie 10min disconnect)

Well I had some time this morning so I swapped over to linux, it works fine there. I guess it is something in my windows setting, I was able login to all my accounts on the first try.

Thanks all, I will continue to look into the issue with my windows configurations on both systems to see if I can narrow the issue down.

Oh this was on both steam and standalone install of Ryzom on Linux. (manjaro dist)]]>

I know this is an old thread but I thought I'd chime in here for 2 reasons.

I don't see a warning yet even tho it is accepted.

But also I'd like to know if any research is being done on the admin/dev side to improve the efficiency of the backups. Ryzom is the only game I see as a player an effect on game play during a backup. Pretty much all games it is "invisible" to the playerbase.

Collections (Jayvaraman)

The team is currently working on a project called Collections
Players will be able to find more or less randomly spawned items. A reward will be given, once a collection is completed.
You can see all your collections in a new ingame app, where the items will be displayed in a 3D object viewer.
The items will have a different dropchance. Some items will be easy to find, others are not. The items players can find range from fun and extraordinary to unique and even dangerous items.
Version 1.0 is all about Silan. There are 5 collections planned with 20 items at all for this region.
After the release of version 1.0, we will go on to improve the system and expand it over the time. So players will be able to find items all over Atys.
Some Collection will come along with a small storyline, like the Explorer Collection. Some storylines will combine multiple collections (even from different regions). For finishing those, the player will get a special reward.
There will be also faction depended collections and event collections (like atysmas).
For the future, we hope that we can also use those items in apartments as decorations, but it is not really planned for now.

Q : the items will be for decorative reasons; or will they affect gameplay as well?
A : No the items will not affect the gameplay. They are just decorative. Maybe some rewards will give benefits. But there is nothing ready yet.

Q : When the item is picked up by someone, can other people pick it up as well, or is it one use only?
R : If you pick up an item, it will disappear and respawn after time at a different position. Then someone else can pick it up.

Q : Will the objects be exchangeable?
R : It is not planned to make the objects exchangeable.

New website (Jayvaraman)

Like I already said, we are also planning to create a new website for Ryzom. The marketing team has already a clear vision and we want to share it with you. The goal of the new online presence is to catch the atmosphere of the game, attract new players by showing the game from its best side and combining all needed functions in an intuitive user interface. It will be a modern website with many, large images and animations. The below links will show you a video and some images from the new website. Please note, that this is work in progress! It is not the finished website what you're looking at. It's just a demonstration.
I have one more thing: a new logo for ryzom.


Any remark, feedback, comments, ideas about the new site and logo will be welcome.
You can write on the chat: chat.ryzom.com, #pub-general.

It has been proposed to create a test group of people who do not know Ryzom but are involved in the gaming world.

OP (Ulukyn)

We ran tests on the duration of the attacks. And that's pretty good. The phase lasted well 1 hour, the rounds increased well as expected. There is still the display to be modified (which still indicates 2h) and the current rounds. Once the attack phase was over, there was no defence phase as planned. So it's not bad at all for a first try.
For the price of the attacks, we had talked about either lowering their price in dappers or replacing it with another system. The other possible system, that we have already set up, is based on Guild Points, so an attack would be paid with PG (the amounts being relatively small for a first attack and increasing in case of multiple attacks)

Q : There are still 24 rounds?
R : Only 12 rounds for an attack phase of one hour.

For all ideas, it is possible to post on the forum or after the report. We regularly consult it for each decision in the Game Design team, don't hesitate.

Guild Points (PG) (Ulukyn)

The operation is simple. Each player who wins xp will also earn points for his (her) guild and this, even if he (she) is a 250. (Because a 250 continues to earn XP even if it is only used to remove DP)
The amount of xp needed to earn a point for his (her) guild increases for each point earned in a day. So, it becomes more and more difficult to get it in a day. The day after, the counter returns to zero and the amount of xp required is at its lowest.
For low level characters, it is also planned either to limit the number of Guild Points earned from a minimum level or to have a higher % depending on the level.
The guild points were set up on Friday in order to obtain detailed statistics and to be able to adjust the parameters as efficiently as possible. For the moment the maximum number of guild points has been set at 1000, this limit is not fixed, it will evolve according to future additions.
PG should not be seen as rewards points, it is more an indicator of guild activity. The more active a guild is, the more services it will get from guild pnjs.

Q : Can we do something with them already?
R : For the moment, it's mainly for statistics.

Q : Isn't this system likely to favour large guilds over small ones?
R : Big guilds will certainly earn more PG, but on the other hand, being bigger, they will need them more.

Q : Can we have statistics on which members earned how many points?
R : Good idea, probably via API.

Q : Doesn't that especially favour the guilds that hunt?
R : Not necessarily, however, we would like to add points to the other activities, like the professions, some missions and why not king's check missions that would give points.

Q : Why don't allow guild to use GP to buy more space on GH? It would forbid alt guilds...
R : Talking about it now will be a little hasty, but it's still a good example.

Q : Various questions on how best to gain the maximum amount of PG in the minimum amount of time.
R : The only way to get more PG is to have more people in your guild. Then you have 15 alt in your guild, you go to the pnj for an X service and he tells you: ok you have 15 active members in your guild, that makes 15x300 PG. Alts also eat PG from you.

Wir haben uns dazu entschlossen eine reine Anfänger-Gilde zu sein, die nicht über das Level 150 in allen Fertigkeiten hinausgehen wollen.

Im Vordergrund stehen der Spielspaß, das Erkunden und das Erlernen von Handwerksfähigkeiten, aber auch Magie und Nah- wie auch Fernkampffähigkeiten sind zum Jagen nach Materialien im Handwerk unerlässlich.

Wir verabscheuen den Kampf um Resourcen in der sich Homin gegen Homin erhebt und gegenseitig umbringt, auch wenn Jena uns aus dem Tode retten kann. Deswegen sind die Urwurzeln und jedes PVP-Gebiet ein absolutes Tabu für uns. Neutral (ohne Kampfaktivität) einem Außenposten-Kampf beizuwohnen ist eine Aussnahmen.

Im Rollenspiel pflegen wir die Gesetze und Gebote Jenas streng ernst zu nehmen, aber im gegenseitigen Respekt steht unserer hedonistischen Lebensweise keine Grenzen gesetzt, außer die von Jena.

Die einzige Vorraussetzung, die du mitbringen müsstest, um unserer Zunft anzuschließen, ist, dass deine Fähigkeiten unter dem Level 150 liegen. Falls du eine neutrale Einstellung zur Nation und Fraktion hast, ist das kein Hindernis. Niemand wird dich in deiner Wahl beeinflussen, aber bedenke, die kleinen Handwerker sind Tryker-Bürger und Karavan-Anhänger. Falls du dich doch entscheidest Bürger einer anderen Nation zu werden oder dich den Kami, Rangern oder sogar Maraudern hingibst, dann musst du die Gilde verlassen. Auch wenn du über das Level 150 hinausgehst. Man wird dich schmerzlich vermissen, aber wir hoffen immer auf einen weiteren guten Kontakt.

Am Besten informierst du den Anführer, falls du dich entscheiden solltest einen anderen Weg zu gehen oder über das maximale Level hinauszugehen. (Chat oder Mail im Spiel) Danke.


Aufgenommen wird jeder der
1) unter Level 150 liegt
2) neutral oder Tryker-Bürger ist
3) neutral oder Karavan-Anhänger ist
4) PVP (Spieler gegen Spieler) verabscheut und PVE (Spieler gegen Umgebung) bevorzugt
5) sich optional Rollenspiel auch vorstellen könnte
6) Deutsch schreiben und verstehen kann

Die Gebote Jena sind zu beachten:

Ich, Jena, bin deine Göttin, die Mutter Schöpferin, und du bist nach meinem Ebenbild geschaffen. Liebt eure Göttin, wie ihr euch selbst liebt.

Du sollst keine anderen Götter anbeten.

Lehrt eure Kinder von meiner Liebe, so wie ich euch lehre.

Ehre meine Jünger, sie sind die Vorboten meiner Gesetze und wurden gesandt, um dein Wohlergehen zu schützen.

Du wirst nicht in die Eingeweide von Atys hinabsteigen, aus Angst, dass das Licht dein Herz verlässt und die Schatten des Drachen deine Seele verschlingen.

Wie das Blatt eines Baumes, das zu Boden fällt und die Kraft des Lebens gibt, wird deine Seele zu mir zurückgerufen werden, wenn du stirbst. Abhängig von der Stärke deines Glaubens wirst du entweder mit meinem Segen wiedergeboren oder du wirst in schrecklicher Qual verrotten.

Verkündet mein Kommen und meine Liebe wird in euren Herzen wachsen.

Nehmt das Gesetz nicht in die Hand, aus Angst, am Tag des Gerichts in die Sünde zu fallen.

Suche nach einer Rückkehr in mein Königreich, und ich werde dir auf halbem Weg entgegenkommen.

Sobald du bewiesen hast, dass dein Glaube rein ist, wirst du die Freude an der Erhöhung erlangen und dadurch ein vertrauenswürdiger Jünger werden.]]>

May I ask few questions to all.. I hope we will finally be able to guess which players will like Ryom. This question is raised as a response to the following post http://app.ryzom.com/app_forum/index.php?page=topic/view/21937

1. How did you come to know about Ryzom?
Saw it listed as a MMO with a native linux client. Winning...
2. Have you played any graphics intensive games before?
3. Which OS do you use for Ryzom.
4. F2P or P2P?
F2P. If I ever make it to the cap for F2P, I doubt I'll subscribe simply because server disconnects happen too often and I'd want consistency for the cost.]]>

Cela a beau se répéter, aucune routine ne s’installe, impossible de se familiariser à ces rituelles.
Une fois, il a ramené un raspal devant nous et la torturé, avec sa cruauté habituelle.

Nous avons perdu la notion du temps. On n’a même pas le droit de mourir, de détourner les yeux : il nous revitalise avec leur magie, nous soigne nos blessures, nous nourrisse de force et nous gave de drogues stimulante pour conserver notre attention.

Progressivement meurt l’espoir de mettre fin à tout ça, de s’enfuir, de le raisonner.

Aujourd’hui, il m’a en parti brulé le masque avec une buche de braise, toujours avec son plaisir sadique.
Je n’en peux plus, je ne veux pas continuer comme ça, je le refuse…
Il a enfin fini, il s’en va hors de l’abris pour chasser. Lagezas reste dans une pièce voisine, je l’entends bricoler.
Doucement je place ma langue entre mes dents et referme progressivement mes mâchoires.
Père, mère, frère, je suis désolé : je n’en peux plus.
Je rassemble le peu de force et de courage pour me mordre… à la première reprise j’abandonne, je ne supporte plus la douleur.
Je reprends mon souffle et recommence : je serre plus fort les dents… et refais une pause.
Allez, un dernier effort et tout sera fini.
Déterminé, je recommence, je sens la sève commencer à couleur de ma langue et persiste malgré ma douleur et… une braise ! Il a laissé la buche encore brulante à côté de moi ! Je peux l’utiliser pour défaire mes liens !
Mes bras sont attachés au mur, mais mes jambes, bien que ligotés entre elles, restent libre de mouvement !

Je commence à me contorsionner pour placer les liens au-dessus de la braise, je deviens complètement hystérique face à cette lueur d’espoir. J’ai un soudain regain d’énergies, je me met en trembler et respirer fort.
Calmes toi ! Doucement ! Concentre-toi !
Délicatement, je refais une tentative, arg ! Je me suis évidemment brulé, je persiste, je commence à forcer sur mes jambes pour défaire les cordes. Mais la douleur devient trop forte et je retire instinctivement mes jambes de la braise.
Je recommence, je sens la chaleur prendre sur mes mollets, la douleur est très forte, aigu, intense et persistante, je fais des mouvements de jambes pour me délier.
Enfin !
Les cordes ont cédé ! Mes pieds sont à présent libre ! Il ne reste que les bras attachés à la paroi dans mon dos !
Oh non ! J’entends du bruit ! Lagezas arrive !
Rapidement, je me refais en position, les jambes rapprochées, et arrête de bouger. Je ferme les yeux et je prie qu’il ne me voit pas…
Il est passé, je crois qu’il a détourné le regard de nous, qu’il ne voulait pas contempler ce spectacle.
Il retourne dans son atelier, et à l’instant où il ne peut plus me voir, je recommence, les bras maintenant !
La tâche est cette fois ci plus difficile encore, je dois me contorsionner pour passer la buche derrière moi, et faire de même pour bruler les liens, sans voir les braises.
Je me brule plusieurs fois, mais refuse cette fois ci de m’interrompre !
Allez ! Encore un effort ! Allez !
Oui !!!

Mes bras sont libérés ! Je suis libre !!

Je suis complètement ankylosé, impossible de me mettre debout pour le moment. Alors je rampe auprès d’Ukuh, avec ma buche. J’entends toujours Lagezas faire du bruit dans l’atelier… mais pour combien de temps ?
Je chuchote à mon frère « Hey ! Tu m’entends ? Je vais nous sortir de la ! ».

Il ne réagit pas, seul deux choses peuvent le faire : La torture, et mes cris…

Alors je commence à bruler ses liens… mais je le blesse involontairement, et il commence à s’agiter, à pleurer et à me demander d’arrêter bruyamment.
« Chuuuut, tais-toi, il va nous entendre ».
Rien à faire, il continue de geindre.

Je n’entends plus Lagezas travailler, seulement se précipiter vers nous… le voilà.

Je commence à paniquer, et je tends ma buche dans sa direction, essayant d’être menaçant.
Il a une lame dans la main, il va nous découper, nooooon ! Ukuh ! C’est de ta faute !

Il s’approche de nous, me bouscule et… coupe les liens de mon frère :

« Allez-vous-en ! Vite avant qu’il ne revienne ! »

Je reste figé un moment… puis j’essaye de me relever, et d’aider Ukuh à faire de même.
Il est à nouveau plongé dans un état de légume, je suis presque obligé de le porter.

On sort de cette antre de souffrance. Je suis frappé par la chaleur et la luminosité de l’extérieur. La sciure est brulante, mais je ne m’arrête pas.

L’avancé est très difficile, Ukuh est lourd, je suis bouillant à cause de la chaleur, je transpire énormément. J’ai la gorge sèche et extrêmement mal au crane. Mes blessures commencent à me faire terriblement souffrir à cause de l’effort.
Je nous dirige au hasard, je ne vois même plus correctement : seulement des dunes ondulantes qui semblent respirer.
Le vent me chuchote des histoires, des conseils, des anecdotes.

Je n’en peux plus. J’avance machinalement dans un état à moitié végétatif. Je ne sens plus la douleur, la soif ou la fatigue.

On continue d’avancer. La nuit commence à tomber.

« Mais qu’est-ce que vous faites la ?! »

Il suffit de cette phrase, de cette voie, de cette folie, pour me sortir de ma torpeur et réveiller douleurs et terreurs dans mon esprit.
Sans réfléchir, je relâche Ukuh qui s’effondre au sol, et je cours. Je ne sais pas d’où me vient cette force. Mais je cours. Mon instinct de survie m’interdit de m’arrêter. Je cours.
Dans la nuit glaciale du désert, je continue de courir, sans m’arrêter, sans me calmer, à nouveau plongé dans l’hystérie.

Je tombe, je vois un petit lézard devant moi. Je l’attrape, mord dans son ventre et commence à boire son sang, à avaler sa chaire. Je me relève.
Quand le jour se lève, je me cache à l’ombre et somnole. Quand je dors, je revois son visage atroce et je ressens ses tortures.
« Non ! Arrête ! Laisse-moi ! Je ne veux pas te voir ! Vas t’en ! »

Quand il fait nuit, je recommence à marcher. Aux hasard dans le désert. J’avale tout ce qui me tombe sous la main : parfois des brins desséchés d’herbes, des insectes, des petits vertébrés.

Je retombe dans un état primitif, agissant d’instinct : s’éloigner, se nourrir, dormir. Je ne pense plus, je réagis uniquement à mes pulsions à présent.
Quand je m’assoie, je repense à tout ça et je pleure.
Je continue mon avancé, je me cache des prédateurs, des kitins, des homins.

Progressivement, mon instinct me guide et les paysages desséchés et claire du désert se transforme en ceux de la jungle, humide et fraiche.
Je continue d’avancer, sans objectif, quand un animal qui migre.

J’arrive dans une ville. Je m’assoie contre une ruelle. Maintenant, mes journées consistent à manger les déchets qui se trouvent à ma portée, et à dormir.

Qui suis-je ? D’où viens-je ? Que suis-je ?

Je ne me souviens de rien, seul les ténèbres restent dans ma tête. Et quand je dors, je vois des bribes de souvenir, des silhouettes, je veux m’en approcher, mais elles disparaissent quand je commence à les discerner.
Ces rêves m’obsèdent, que veulent-ils me dire ?

Tu ne t’enfuiras jamais, je serais toujours avec toi, j’ai apposé mon sceau sur toi…

Mon périple de fait que commencer…]]>

It would also be great, if the priority always falls on the material specialization during the automatic symbol selection, no matter which Stanza has the highest focus consumption.

You could do the same with melee actions. For example, to prioritize the priority to "sham attack" or "aim at head (etc)".

But you can't really please everyone. I would suggest to leave everything as it is, but implement a choice:
A) Automatic choice (conventional)
If it is not desired:
B) Optionally, you can choose the symbol yourself from the possibilities represented in the action.
Or C) Set your own priority, which symbol should be displayed automatically.

The coloring of the actions by eco-specific colors is a real relief by the last patch. So you don't have to right-click and "edit" the actions all the time. Well done!

For me a stanza seems to be the better way, to handle different actions of foraging. So it could be used if you dig auto-generated sources, and not for a "normal" digging action (depends on the players choice).

But in every case i'm pretty sure, that everyone could be able to compensate the time-bonus-part of the actually given rite-bonus before focus runs out by having and using two digging actions.

But this makes digging not as comfortable as it is without the rite bonus. And this seems to be the real problem, because a time bonus isn't real needed for level 200+ diggers.

Solving this means, to let the player decide if a digging bonus is wanted or not. And so a new stanza instead of an automated added bonus is the best way to solve.]]>

Un jour, au détour de Thesos, Elea fut interpellée par un tryker :
« Hey Elea ! Tu as vu la nouvelle roue ?
- Ah oui la roue…je me souviens encore du jour où la compagnie du gubani fortuné s’était installée dans chaque capitale. Après quelques mois, certains étaient devenus addict. Un article choc «la roue de la fortune : drogue ou arnaque ? » est même paru dans le journal PlayHomin 2 à la création de la roue en 2537

- Oh vrai ? la roue est une si vieille arnaque ?
- Et oui une arnaque enfin des radins ces trykers, je n’ai jamais gagné mon yubo. Heureusement, une protégée, Makita m’offrit mon yubo Bipbip
- Hannn Bipbip la saleté qui mord ou fait pipi sur les mollets ? Quoi il est si vieux, ce cabot ?
- Et oui Bipbip me tient compagnie depuis des lustres. Alors cette roue, tu as eu des échos ?
- Ouais la compagnie a fait un contrôle chez les vieux tryker qui tenaient la roue. Tu verrais ce qu’elle a retrouvé…et bah tous les lots gagnants étaient chez dans leurs apparts...
- Han quand je le disais que c’était des arnaqueurs
- Du coup ils ont été viré et envoyé en exil pour apprivoiser et s’occuper de nouvelles montures à perpètes en jungle. On m’a parlé de gubani.
- Waouh cool, j’adore les petits couinements des gubanis, trop mimi. Ah ça me fait penser quand on parlait des montures jadis


- Bon et les roues alors qui les fait tourner ?
- Bah ils ont dû changer toutes les roues pour que les nouveaux croupiers tryker du gubanis ne puissent plus tricher. Et ils ont rajouter des nouveaux lots gagnants pour se faire pardonner.
- Ah sympa ça…j’espère qu’ils ont mis mon chapeau, il me manque
- Bah il y a des perruques, des pets, des meubles pour l’appart….
- Ohhhh bon je vais aller papoter avec le nouveau tryker, peut-être que j’arriverai à le soudoyer avec mes jetons
- Ah désolé les jetons ont changé
- Hein quoi ? Mes jetons sont fichus ?
- Mais non il y a de nouveaux jetons avec différentes valeurs mais tu pourras échanger tes anciens contre des nouveaux.
- Ouf
- Oui et tu pourras miser un ou 5 jetons par tour de roue. Comme ça, tu augmentes tes chances de gagner.
- Ok je vais retenir. Bon je file voir ça. A tantôt.
- Bonne chance Elea. »

a) Sometimes the wheel just stops working.

b) Instructions on what BYMGO is all about ... Pay 2 Win

c) Understanding that user selection of what categories of rewards are in play is not feasible, has any thought been given to the fact that many rewards are not usable ... for example cats for subbed players, low level "Wundahmat"....The latter wouldn't be so bad if tradeable.

d) What reward items are going to be "tradeable" ?

e) The OP Flowers provide something that few players use. I love the red and blue ones, but I'm in a small minority. Giving away flowers rarely brings a response.

While I certainly do not want to diminish the importance of OPs, I think the **rare** reward of an OP mat would add some excitement without diminishing the value of an OP for the player base that is excluded from opportunity to obtain same.

f) The issue of dupes.... Lost about a dozen rewards because I already had a BYMGO game of that number. Is there a way to avoid getting a 2nd rucksack for apartment, duplicate wigs, etc.

Regarding, item part collection, not really in a position yet to form a solid view on this stuff but .... impressions so far after 5 stacks of Basic Tokens, winning 282 choice token with Pay2Win and whatever collected from 2 mini bosses:

- It would seem apartment item collection rewards are a bit high ... while on that topic, kinda confused about the rotating / glowing rucksack... reminded me of Doom armor. 55/30 parts so far

- Wigs reward rate seems low ... (17/150), a third of those coming from the choice tokens.

- Plushie rate seems OK.... (14/150), again a third of those coming from the choice tokens

- Gubani Mount rate seems low ... (5/300) Gubani Mount and all those came from Basic Tokens ... had 6 but one disappeared after wheel crash. At 1 part per stack, the idea of requiring 300 stacks seems daunting.

BTW, had to type this message twice ... 1st time hit "submit" button said reload detected. Seems I get this whenever i don't complete a post quickly]]>

You are all invited, whether you follow Ma-Duk's path or Jena's. We will have at your disposal Greslins pick of both types. They are ideal for young diggers from all nations. As a bonus, you can leave with flowers to support your intelligence.
And of course, since we will be in the Lakes, there will be Byrh and, at nightfall, BOOOOOOOUM from fireworks.

We expect you on the Floris 12 1AC 2600 at Fairhaven market.

Meet us on the 2018-09-14, 21h CEST, 19 UTC on the beach, right from the kara teleport. All nations and religion are welcome. Marauders are not invited.
For young players, the Greslins picks have the particularity of being able to reveal stable sources that can neither explode nor release gas.
These are q150 picks, ideal for F2P players.
The distribution will be made as a priority to tryker citizens. You will therefore be asked to display your title at the time of distribution. But we have a lot of picks to distribute....]]>

Back on topic. That "Spirit of War" title is to acknowledge your commitment/persistence, not your actual martial prowess; anyone can swap weapons and grind a few dozen masters, but they will still be inferior to a toon with less skill controlled by a player with more skill. Having gotten all weapon skills to 250 doesn't actually mean you mastered anything at all, so it becomes a question of whether we are rewarding skill or simply giving a cookie to whoever has the most free time.

Second, I believe Bittty is correct about numbers and about the historical precedent. Unless we are talking about serious gaps in equipment or player aptitude, numbers will win nearly every time. I think it safe to assume that all of the serious PvPers here are roughly equal in terms of skill and gear though, so it all comes down to numbers. It's as true in Ryzom as it is IRL. However, actual armies are often vastly better equipped than peasants, and most peasants would rather not fight a disciplined force with superior equipment, which means that any government that tries can achieve numerical superiority relatively easily.

As an aside on Northstar's observation that RP winds up dying as a result, it's worth remembering that there is a wiiiiiiide range of commitment to RP. I've had some rude things said to me simply because I belong to a Karavan guild yet have non-Karavan friends... including my fellow Rangers. One possible reason for RP "dying" is that some people overestimate how committed to RP others were in the first place, sometimes to the point of belittling others for not being 120% into RP. When you get casual RP'ers to just shake their heads, walk away, and let their subscriptions lapse, that doesn't do any of us any favors.]]>
