    Regular Liberator back ONLINE - 11/20/2011

    Regular Liberator back ONLINE - 11/20/2011

    Liberator Cloud test is over for now. We got some good data, but unfortunately we didn't have enough instances online for a proper stress test. We plan on running the test again in another week or two. We are looking into different possibilities to increase the number of players during the next Cloud test, so if any of you have any suggestions, feel free to post them in this thread.

    We want to thank everyone who helped us by logging onto LiberatorTest this past week. We know it was hard to put an effort into playing while knowing that everything will be wiped in just a few days. We also want to apologize to all those that lost days of gameplay on regular Liberator because of this test.

    Or just get rid of the Mel mission part. To many thinking that they would get and play a jedi for a week. When it didn't happen for them, people left the test.

    As far as I am aware the way Bluefrog is coded in Pre-OR it doesn't set the jedi state correctly if you train jedi skills, so having a Bluefrog with jedi on it would be pointless.

    I think a bluefrog SHOULD be put in, but give it only nonjedi professions, however resources and other items would be a tremendous help, I think. Holocrons should be given upon player creation like they should, maybe until the jedi state problem can be fixed.

    Also as Malady stated, you can remove the mell mission from the trainer dialogue and when they talk to the trainer for the first time it goes from FS to padawan straight, I think that would be the best solution.

    Yeah jedi for a week without the Mel mission but also need:
    1.Good Buffs (We wont have armor)
    2.Descent resources (for those who wish to craft)
    3 Weapons (Including the components to make them IE crystals, tissues Ect)

    Some of the Jedi comments are a good idea. I think a thread dedicated to the cloud testing, or a daily update will go along way as well. I would have jumped on to help test had I known you guys needed more people.
    Also, if there is anyway to set up some events, especially PvP ones will help too.

    I don't understand and have been wondering about this for a while. Did the devs write the lib code from scratch or did they reverse engineer the original pre-cu and possibly have some code that they can't "break" like above?

    I love not having to "start over" on xp, you can wipe/rewipe as many times as you want as long as I don't have to take a week to get back to zero (armor, buffs, swoops. I always wished they would have a solo version of this game and this is the closest I can get until I win the lottery quit my job and learn to code/re myself (with the help of full time teachers). Then I will be the most powerful player in the world...../end power trip fantasy.

    How about a reward of some kind for those who test, something that could transfer to regular liberator, a few ideas:

    a
    1.) Bound to be controversial, but Lib itself is just a "play server" anyway: KEEP the Mell mission in place, as is, keep the server exactly as it is, but also KEEP the characters for those who played during the test once the regular liberator goes live.
    2.)Keep the Mellichae mission and jedi system as it is, but make skill training as normal(i.e no going to the trainers, and getting an insta TKM, but also let those characters transfer over to lib once the test is done.
    maybe have a timer here so that people who test only x amount of time get the reward(not people who just login, make a toon for the free stuff?
    b-reward players liberator characters while still wiping the database ideas.
    1.)Give each player who tested the cloud server some sort of advance in the jedi system, such as to the point where you NEED a holocron, or give them a holocron.
    2.)Give each player who took part a monetary reward on liberator.

    I know these ideas wont be without controversy, but hey, they are just ideas. My concern is that if you want a big stress test, sure you can give people jedi on the testing servers, alot will log in at one point, but after they play around for a few hours it will sink in to them that their new toy will just go away again once the test is over, and you'll be back to square one.
    Either way, thanks to the devs.

    To me, its kind of simple. Transfer everything from regular Liberator to the cloud test. Stuff the blue frogs, stuff free training/no xp needed, DON'T give the NGE teenagers free Jedi. Just trial running normal Liberator from the new platform. Run some events, or lots of events. GCW was always a good way to stress test the server. When we are all said and done, don't wipe it on purpose, transfer the data back. If we loose the last week of it for some reason, so be it, roll backs happen, but just run it the way you always do. People stopped playing because of the mini wipe/Jedi/lack of resources.

    Do not allow devs to assist in achieving jedi Wipe liberator and place permanently on cloud fix wound cap on dots and remove silent rumors imho would bring back many a lost players.... P.S I do not expect any of this to happen just my 2 cents on what might bring "fun" back to a fun server

    if you really wanna stress the server, do the following.

    1) start from scratch, tell players that if the cloud test goes successfully, regular liberator will be no more and cloud liberator will be the new play server, noone was bothered (myself included) to dedicate time to a server that will be wiped in a week, but if they think they are starting from scratch, everyone and their mom, and their alts, and their alts moms will log on just to get that slight time advantage.

    2) make BH worth it, allow players to see the name of the jedi they are hunting when mission searching, lots of people dropped BH because they where sick of getting a jedi mission, just to find he was offline.

    3) put the rumours back in for jedi, or at least let the rumours tell players the planet. afk and and noob jedi helps noone, and just helps people /ragequit. keep the 2 holocron requirement and let that be the jedi bottleneck, that will make sure there are not too many jedi.

    4) i would insert something here about fixing dots, to help pvp, but i think my ideas here have wasted enough dev time on liberator, so im just going to ask that players put up with the dot wars that go on here.

    5) give out better prizes than badges for participating in pvp events, for example, 1/1/1 armor, a nice 800 max dmg t21, 200+ max dmg vk, u know nice stuff that make it worth risking the armor and weapon decay of pvp events, but not game breaking stuff. this will really stress the server and encourage pvp if there is a chance to attain this stuff.

    6) if possible, introduce a points system that tracks the amount of different players killed in a pvp event and give out a really nice prize to the winner such as a peice of mando armor, black sun armor, a scyth, a black sun vk, you know really REALLY nice stuff that can only be attained through pvp events, and dont be shy on the stats, again dont make them game breaking, but not too shabby either, for example, mando armor should be 80% to all (slicable) and vuln againts lightsaber. scyth should be 900-1k max dmg, and black sun vk should be 270~ max dmg. you get the idea, powerful, but not an i win button.

    Im sure there are other things, but these would really get players online. especially number 1, i know its very selfish, but people do not want to invest time into something that will be wiped, even if it is a bit of fun for a week. they want to be able to progress their character.

    anyway thats my 2 cents.

    EDIT

    I am in support of this idea. perhaps if they can successfully become a full template Jedi on Cloud liberator, they become "Strong" on regular liberator????
