I was curious about why the decision was made to wipe off ac
from all the old aux items, rather than let them hang around
and slowly die out in DT's and whatnot, like with other old gear.
Was the extra ac causing that much bother?

Actually, wiping holsters was a side effect of wiping another issue
that a few players had been abusing badly.

And now we see yet another kind of legending.
As this happens so often you could probably find it in the dictionary.
Legend 2, to down grade everything almost constantly
why cant we erase that from the dictionary by IMPROVING some things.
anyway, what diff would 20 ac make? cause i gather aux items wouldn't
have given more than -5 each. honestly I dont think even 50 diff
in ac would do that much, because AC is virtually useless, like
so many other things...

Good grief people, how about taking a little time to read
through your posts to make sure they're coherent before submitting
them? Any valid points you are making are totally lost when you
fire off this ill-considered rubbish. Use @show and @back. Please.

It's unfortunate about the holster belts, however, the bug in
question wasn't simply 5 or 6 ac. It was 2-10 stat points, and
instead of calling the bug to the attention of an immort or
even bugging it, it was abused. So, to halt any further accidents
like this, code was put into place to make sure aux items were
as they are supposed to be -- statless.

It's funny I find how a few ppl will abuse bugs like this, I used to be one
of them actually, but really, if you keep doing it you're just going to
screw yourselves over. I suggest you avoid abusing these things then maybe
the imms will be more reluctant to give us stuff, than take it away.
