It's been asked about by several people, and I myself would like to know what everyone's favorite version of dyso was.

Myself I prefer older dyso, LV and just after LV up to about November-December. Those were the best times for me.

This may also perhaps give Bri an idea of what kind of dyso the players want. After all, what is a server without its players?

Cast your votes....... now.

It's all because of the stupid players just powergaming. icon_sad.gif

Well I liked the one pre-wipe- minus the 'im better than you at dueling' bit, simply because I was forced to make such a character so I could defend myself IC properly.

The RP back then was excellent.

You seem to have a "on paper this will work" attitude. True, if the xp system has changed back to how it was in 2.x, then 3.x is better in theory. But in practice, things often have a habit of not turning out as you planned them to.

Most people are choosing 2.x, because that's when all the best players were around the most, and things were a lot better. Adding a few areas to the module doesn't necessarily make it better. For me, it's how many of the older players that I knew from the start are still here. I'd enjoy dyso a lot more if everyone was just leveled to a specific level and are stuck at it. That way no one will go "hunting" for xp and will spend more time roleplaying.

It would be better if a cap was put on your max level. Like for instance, after the next wipe, for the first week you can reach level 5 say, then at the start of the second week the cap gets raised to level 6, and so on. Less time would be spent xp grabbing and more time actually roleplaying.

3.x its all about 3.x I love it I use to hate it but now I love it reasons

1. I have noticed taht we haev lost half and half of RPers and PGers in truth.

2. now I will not die for not haveing the best stuff in the module.

3. Dm events... this allows everyone to have a fair chance at recieving items that will mkae them better.

4. the Dms in total are a blast icon_biggrin.gif it seems I am being hunted down by hells army now.... *grummbles* why cant they come in more force.

5. icon_biggrin.gif I have gotten to know Gorb, Acess D or Y as he is on the forums, and Sidd (Conrad) icon_biggrin.gif well with Sidd I am getting along with him now then from before icon_biggrin.gif when I would mess up with wall pushing when I was bored and stuff like that.... Newaz

6. the Xp system actually challenges you now, the Xp being good until you hit level 15 is awesome I love it and I have already said thanks to Bri, on behalf of the whiners, for it since I know the Whiners would never suck it up and say so.

7. ......................... dont ask about 7 I decided not to say it icon_biggrin.gif but its awesome too ask me abotu it IC some time.

8. I have proved many wrong and brought a Wizard off of eastern Isle at level 5 before changes ALONE no help (seeeeeeee it can be done)

thats it I think so my votes on 3.x

I will admit that I did enjoy 2.x and yes all I did was power game to get my 20th level. After I got to 20th I started to RP more and more. The real credit goes to when I joined thet Scamps that really put some life into the whole RP thing for me. It kinda gave me some direction to my RP. I am not saying I am a good RP'er but least it gave me a base to work from.
I am starting to enjoy 3.x though, there has been lots of DM events and thats what makes 3.x. I do enjoy all the events that have been going on. Death is a little tougher to take now. Whereas in 2.x I would say"Well I can make that up in no time." Now I some times think DOH! Thats gonne leave a mark! Man! yesterday was not a good day for the exp meter. I died four times! Darkovn got me twice, Glorin got me real good. Hehe that was real nice set up by the way Glorin. I also died in a event. Funny though I didn't even think twice about all the deaths I suffered when we was sorting out all the loot! Give and take thats all it is. As Pete would say "A good pay check makes all the troubles go away."

Yes, that was a battle on an epic scale. I was actually sitting there going "AAAA" outloud at my desk. Truly a fearsome array of enemies.  Reply with quote

Yep, epic is the best word for it. Never even gave a second thought about dying (other than how I died ... instadeath while wearing death protect???), rather I just wanted to get res'd and back in the battle. Never even checked until about an hour later how much exp I lost, and you know what I didn't and don't care. Was truly fun!!!

Dam! This is what I don't like, living in britain means I miss DM events unless I stay on until 3 in the morning icon_wink.gif .

But 3.x, I joined Dyso during 2.x, and then only made my proper stuck to character about a month before the wipe. During that time though, I had some great RPing experiences and after the wipe, now people are respectable levels, they all are RPing as much as before the wipe, making playing fun again.

Whn I'm not in Topaz with freinds levelling anyway...
