Huma says, 'ok whos got a question' Huma makes the sign of the cross at Somar. Jesus used to drive a geo metro! Quagmire raises his hand. Herbert says, 'wow ya want the jewel kryptonite that sounds awesome' Huma pokes Quagmire with Kryptonite. Quagmire says, 'wheres this code update i'm supposed to hate' Huma says, 'I dunno, Huginns busy =P' Jesus knows it! Jesus says to Quagmire, 'And you'll like it :)' Dietric raises his hand. Herbert says, 'good turn out this time' Rusalka says, 'kay, I have a question for you all to start' Herbert beams delightedly. Quagmire thinks he'll just snipe any PKE alt of jesus he sees to spite him for spawing crap about snipers. Merlock says, 'there is no code update' Rusalka says, 'and then Dietric, I think' Kryptonite thuds as Huma attempts to bounce it - what a klutz. Xuvenia says, 'yeah, there's no posts yet' Xuvenia peers around intently. Huma says, 'everyone listen to RUsalka' Jesus points at Rusalka. Rusalka says, 'How often should the prize machine be updated?' Merlock coughs loudly. Trousers says, 'like, every month' Merlock says, 'every week' Herbert says, 'bi-monthly!' Quagmire says, 'a little more than it is currently?' Jesus says to Rusalka, 'Bi-weekly.' Rusalka says, 'i mean, what's neither too long nor too short' Jesus says, 'err, every two weeks.' Merlock says, 'its been getting changed what like twice a decade?' Rusalka says, '9 new items are going in tmorrow' Huma says, 'just a little background, Rus just did a update that'll be in shortly' Merlock says, 'yea every two weeks' Quagmire says, 'well you should actually do it on a token basis' Rusalka says, 'i was thinking rotating the whol thing once a month' Jesus says, 'yay rus!' Quagmire says, 'keep track of the # of tokens used in it' Xuvenia says, 'month sounds good' Rusalka says, 'is that too short a time?' Rusalka was thinking, because it can take a while for any particular item to come up Merlock says, 'does the machine still give out multis and nons?' Delandel raises his hand. Herbert says, 'depends how rare do we want strings from the prize machine to be?' Rusalka nods solemnly. Merlock scuffles his feet around in the dirt. Wayde says, 'I wouldn't know. I'm new' Rusalka says, 'not sure on multis' Rusalka says, 'i'd have to check the acts' Jesus tickles Huginn. Rusalka says, 'i know there are stirngs in it' LadyYuna says to Somar, 'there you go.' Herbert says, 'monthly would definitely make tokens more valuable which is cool' Huma says, 'no multis' Somar cheers for LadyYuna - huzzah! Xuvenia says, 'how about less junky crap, more cool stuff, and rotate it monthly' LadyYuna flourishes grandly. Huma says, 'nons though' Rusalka says, 'okay, so monthly is good' Huma says, 'nons mundanes halfs' Merlock says, 'put multis in' Merlock snickers softly. Rusalka says to Xuvenia, 'I think junky may be in the eye of the beholder :)' Somar has created a bottle of orange juice! Huma says, 'no =P' Somar has created a bottle of vodka! Jesus says, 'adds?' Somar drinks from a bottle of vodka. Somar drinks from a bottle of orange juice. Herbert says, 'i think addacolors are in it arent they?' Merlock says, 'yea addy a collororys would be cool' Huma says, 'add-a-color should go in I think' Somar gives a bottle of vodka to Rusalka. Somar gives a bottle of orange juice to Rusalka. Merlock says, 'agreed' Rusalka thanks Somar heartily. Rusalka will think on it :)
Huma pokes Dietric with Kryptonite. Rusalka mixes the vdka and oj togther. Huma says, 'your turn Diet' Wayde yawns. Dietric says, 'Oh!' Dietric says, 'Alright' Chaykin says, 'Diet is here??' Merlock says, 'isnt huma yer boss rusalka' Wayde says, 'We going to do the Q&A?' Merlock ducks to the ground. Chaykin peers around intently. Xuvenia says, 'yeah, that freaked me out for a sec too' Rusalka giggles. Dietric says, 'Couple of things, first of all, as a new player, I think this place rocks. And I'm not sucking up, it really does, compared to other places...' Herbert thanks Dietric heartily. Chaykin beams delightedly. Somar puts a Lime in the Coke, you nut. Huma says, 'well we try... not me, but the rest of them' Dietric says, 'That being said, I had a question about the wary agg system that's not really covered in the helpfil' Delandel says to Somar, 'you corknut.' Merlock says, 'put the lime in the coke, you nut and drink it all up' Huma says, 'sure whats D' Chaykin says, 'yeah huma is mainly just here to shoot somar on command' Huma makes the sign of the cross at Somar. LadyYuna smiles happily. Dietric says, 'See, agg gives a noticeable benefit of an increase in hit roll, right?' Jesus forces you to stop spamming. Herbert nods solemnly. Wayde yawns. Huma says, 'yeap!' Merlock says, 'im gonna jet this is borin :P' LadyYuna says to Jesus, 'i'm not doing anything. i'm sitting here. =P' Dietric says, 'And wary is supposed to make you harder to hit, but does nothing visibly to ac' Herbert nods solemnly. Dietric says, 'Is it just invisible assistance?' Xuvenia says, 'yeah, that's an interesting idea' Herbert says, 'yeah its more bonus to dodges and whatnot I think?' Huma says, 'well it lowers the thing fighting yours hitroll' Huma says, 'fighting you' Delandel says to Herbert, 'no, but good try.' Rusalka says, 'basically, agg makes it easier for you to hit and easier for you to be hit' Dietric says, 'Ahhhhhhhhhh' Herbert grins evilly at Delandel... Wonder what he's thinking... Rusalka says, 'and wary makes it harder for you to hit and be hit' Huma says, 'yeah agg is +to your hitroll and + to the thing you're fightings hitroll' Delandel says to Herbert, 'wary/agg has many myths, many of which I have busted.' Rusalka nods her agreement with Huma. Huma says, 'and wary -'s both of yours hitroll' Rusalka says, 'i sometimes think of it as a way to make the fight go faster' Dietric says, 'Right. My point was that while I was seeing my hitroll go up when I went agg, all I was seeing was it go down for wary...therefore making me wonder what the benefit of wary was' Dietric smiles happily. Herbert nods his agreement with Delandel. Huma nods his agreement with Dietric. Jesus says, 'wary rocks against shoot.' Huma says, 'yeah it can be confusing' Rusalka says to Dietric, 'Good question.' Huma says, 'I wouldnt know about it except I asked someone one day so =P' Dietric laughs.
Huma pokes Delandel with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'Delandel you're up' Delandel says, 'blue?' Huma says, 'The result of using Professor Potter's "duplicator ray" on some Green Kryptonite. Blue Kryptonite kills Bizarros, but has no effect on Kryptonians.' Wayde says, 'Is the Q&A going to go on yet?' Huma smiles happily. Delandel says, 'ok...' Huginn cheers for Huma - huzzah! Huma says to Wayde, 'Its already started raise your hand if you want to ask a question.' Xuvenia peers at Huma, looking him up and down. Delandel says, 'gimme a sec to type this' Quagmire licks Xuvenia. Delandel says, 'I was wondering about gust of wind...' Huma has blue kryptonite definition in his copy/paste clipboard. Jesus goes EEK! at Delandel in distress - isn't Delandel an awful person for teasing? Delandel says, 'it's very powerful' Trousers wipes the spam from his eyes. Delandel says, '60hp in damage' Chaykin says to Huma, 'I was wondering.' Delandel says, 'and always hits' Jesus says to Delandel, 'Don't you dare say a bad word about gust!' Blackmojo nods solemnly. Delandel says, 'it's kind of cheap' Blackmojo says, 'its verys cheap' Huma says, 'well there are some changes to gust goin in soon' LadyYuna pouts. Huma says, 'in that little postcard Huginn has right there' LadyYuna says, 'i like my gust of wind' LadyYuna sighs loudly. Somar says, 'thankfully, not the changes I tried to put in :P' Somar blushes bright red. Delandel says, 'BAHAHAHQ' Xuvenia snickers at Somar nastily. Delandel says, 'BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA' Huginn tickles Somar. Huma says, 'if Somar had it his way it would have squared the dmg done in some instances' Somar cheers for Lorenzo - huzzah! Xuvenia says to Somar, 'Tell us more about these changes.' Huma says, 'which would have been a Bad Thing' Lorenzo grins evilly. Huma slyly steals somars thunder from Somar. LadyYuna says, 'what does tha tmean?' Somar jumps in the air and slams a thunderous high-5 with Huma! Quagmire says to LadyYuna, '60^2=....' LadyYuna says, 'eeeeee!! do it ! more damage with gust of wind' LadyYuna ducks to the ground. Quagmire says to LadyYuna, 'lemme put it this way: SL's mostly outside :P' Chaykin says, 'ooh the blank line thing is cool' Huginn nods his agreement with Chaykin. Xuvenia says, 'sl is already a cakewalk' Huma says, 'well the short of the story is, Gust of wind has been touched up a bit' Wayde stands up. Jesus says to Quagmire, 'See, i said you'd like it.' Straussy taps an announcer's microphone . Straussy says, 'hi all' Huma says, 'and it might nto be done yet being changed' Huma says, 'probably is but there is still some talk' LadyYuna pouts. Quagmire tugs on Huginn's sleeve imploringly. LadyYuna says, 'it'll probably just suck eventually. and i'll be sad.' Delandel says, 'Anyway, I know it costs mana to cast gust, but in all seriousness it's too insane, it should be more like stun spell' Huma says, 'the spell is ok I think...' Blackmojo raises his hand. Huma says, 'whats wrong with the spell?' Jesus says to Delandel, 'Gust has a huge drawback.' Huma says, 'its area limited' Straussy raises his hand. Delandel says, '60hp in damage and acts like a bash for 1 round' Jesus says, 'you can also stand immediately if you aren't skill lagged.' Delandel says to Huma, 'there aren't many indoor rooms.' Huma says, 'yeah, it doesnt have a skill lad affect' Huma says, 'lag...' Delandel says to Jesus, 'i don't know about you, but in PK, I use skills.' Blackmojo giggles. Jesus says to Delandel, 'So time the skills accordingly.' Straussy says, 'oooh ... oooh!' Straussy raises his hand. Quagmire says to Delandel, 'quiet! both of you! or i'll stun you both and backstab 4 times!' LadyYuna says, 'can you even do that here?' Huma chuckles politely. Jesus says to LadyYuna, 'No.' Quagmire says to LadyYuna, 'ask him.' Delandel says, 'so consider making gust tumbleable?' Quagmire pokes Jesus in the ribs. Delandel says, 'I agree' LadyYuna says, 'idle threats.' Huma says, 'idea it' Jesus says to Quagmire, 'What!' Huma says, 'its definately something we need to discuss' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'quiet or i'll stun you and backstab 4 times!!!!' Huma says to Quagmire, 'Dont be so spammy!' Straussy says, 'you can't he's jesus' Straussy says, 'psshh duh' Huma says, 'ok ok ok' Quagmire raises his hand.
Huma pokes Blackmojo with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'go ahead blackmojo' Jesus says to Quagmire, 'Liar.' Delandel raises his hand. Straussy says to Delandel, 'Im next.' Straussy peers around intently. Blackmojo says, 'did the dam chang on backstab ? jut timing' Straussy sticks his tongue out at everyone! =P Delandel says to Straussy, 'i'm just raising my hand.' Jesus raises his hand. Huginn says, 'just timing' Blackmojo says, '3 backstabs in a tick seem like overkill' Huginn says, 'I'm also going to take a player suggestion' Huginn says, 'and make it so you can tell when it wears off' Jesus raises his eyebrow at Huginn. Huginn says, 'well the question here' Jesus says to Huginn, 'I like that idea.' Blackmojo says, 'i would much rather take the chance of getting sutuned and backstabed that just to keep getting backstabed' Huginn says, 'is do you think you'd have stunned more than 2x per tick' Huginn says, 'according to some the answer is definately yes' LadyYuna says, 'man. all those updates just made ladyyuna suck more then she already does lol' Quagmire says, 'raising the question, what's my gun good for other than show?' LadyYuna says, 'bad welcome #30!' Delandel says, 'Face it people, snipers are not gonna become easy' Jesus nods his agreement with Delandel. Delandel says, 'Either live with it, or make a sniper!' Delandel ducks to the ground. Jesus says, 'i like this change, alot.' Huginn says to Quagmire, 'Stunning people does more than just give you a chance to backstab.' Blackmojo says, 'then why not change the stun % insted of backstab' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'thats because you cant PK.' Jesus says to Quagmire, 'I'll be the first to admit that.' Huginn says to Blackmojo, 'For one reason..' Delandel says, 'wait' Delandel says, 'does that mean it won't work on mobs either?' Huginn says to Blackmojo, 'Because there are more than one type of sniper now.' Herbert says, 'stun and trap around then empty a few clips *duck*' Huginn says, 'not all snipers backstab' Delandel laughs. Quagmire says to Huginn, 'like what, come in kick, have them wake up and get reamed for 2 rounds?' Quagmire says, 'really?' Quagmire says to Delandel, 'what kind of sniper do you know that has perc and doesnt backstab?' Blackmojo says, 'the good ones do' Blackmojo giggles. Delandel says, 'Blackmojo nailed it' Jesus says to Quagmire, 'God forbid you have to tank with your 650 hp.' Delandel says, 'the Good ones do' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'yes, actually, god forbid is right.' LadyYuna sighs loudly. Huma says, 'I think they were trying to preserve the integrity of gun users and backstabbers' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'the entire idea is with 2 damroll i can match a dude with the same hp and 40 damroll.' Huma says, 'without making either terrible' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'that doesnt happen by taking bashes.' Jesus says to Quagmire, 'I've had alot of bashes tumbled by snipers.' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'i havent.' Blackmojo says, 'same here' Quagmire squeezes the shape of a gigantic pike fondly. Blackmojo peers at Quagmire, looking him up and down. Jesus says to Quagmire, 'Just give it a chance :)' Delandel says, 'tumble is insane' Blackmojo nods solemnly. Huma says, 'anyway' Delandel says, 'but I can deal with it' Huma says, 'does that kind of answer your question Blackm' Blackmojo nods solemnly.
Huma pokes Straussy with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'your turn!' Quagmire raises his hand. Huma says, 'you are already in queue Quag want me to add your twice?' Straussy says, 'ok' Straussy says, 'just want to know the status on areas in progress' Rusalka says, 'ohhh' Rusalka giggles. Huma says, 'uh pretty much everything in the game right now is pre-alpha' Straussy says, 'any that are almost complete or in testing?' Huma says, 'with the exception of a couple' Dietric raises his hand. Huma says, 'I think SL2 might be above pre-alpha' Huginn nods his agreement with Huma. Straussy says, 'neato' Huma says, 'like' Huma says, 'Mongolia might be a sleeper pick' Huma says, 'to be added in the next year' Rusalka chuckles politely. Huma says, 'if someone on the staff gets real motivated' Huma says, 'it could be the cinderella of this years tournament' Huma says, 'say but SL2 is the consensus favorite' Huma says, 'with Tartarus behind' Huma says, 'and everyone else is idling at the start line practically =P' Huma says, 'although Tombstone has all its room 20 cowboys and 60 chickens' Chaykin is writing two rooms for Tartarus. An aura of heavenly light appears above Chaykin's head.
Huma pokes Quagmire with Kryptonite. Rusalka chuckles politely. Lorenzo licks his lips and smiles. Huma says, 'your turn Quaglyn' Lorenzo says, 'chickens' Quagmire says, 'again, what's the point of this now?' Quagmire peers intently at the little sure-shot. Cluck cluck cluck BANG! Huma says, 'I loaded a bunch of chickens as placeholder mobs' Quagmire says, 'yes! stun! come in and kill! do 30 damage!' Quagmire says, 'maybe take a bash and another 150 hp on said bash!' Huma says, 'use a combat skill?' Delandel says, 'you know who will benefit' Huma says, 'keep shooting them?' Delandel says, 'then 3c cause shooters' Delandel says, 'stun come in firestorm' Delandel drools contentedly. Quagmire says, 'again, this also completely screws up doubles' Quagmire says, 'no more headbutt backstab' Delandel says, 'Hahaha you jsut destroyed freaky' Huma says, 'well my personal piece of advice is test the crap out of the change' Delandel says, 'freaky is done!' Huma says, 'and come back to Huginn with some hard evidence' Huma says, 'and say 'alright heres whats working heres whats not'' Huginn says, 'freaky is not done' Quagmire says, 'druids arent done' Huginn nods his agreement with Quagmire. Delandel says, 'freaky has advanced fencing' Delandel says, '...' Huginn says, 'so?' Huginn says, 'staying power' Huginn says, 'that's what freaky has..' Quagmire says, 'what staying power' Delandel says, 'what's staying power?' Huginn says, 'the kind where you run and heal' Quagmire says, 'ok, it's way worse for her' Huginn says, 'stab. heal stab heal.' Quagmire says, 'way worse' Axis says, '?did I win anything' Quagmire rolls around on the ground with laughter. Jesus says to Quagmire, 'And it didn't need to be?' Axis snuggles up to Somar. Huma says, 'well Huginn wanted to do this change on a testmud but didnt get any takers to tast with him' Delandel says, 'I damcapped 8 times today in a PK fight... on someone with more ac than freaky' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'i didnt have any personal trouble killing the druid with the same perc as me.' Huma says, 'so now we gotta collect data right, so go collect data' Quagmire says to Jesus, 'the 180 hp stun shots were annoying.' Jesus says to Quagmire, 'When followed by a para, you're dead.'
Huma pokes Delandel with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'your turn Delandel' Delandel says, 'ah' Delandel says, 'Ok here is a problem for PK i noticed' Delandel says, 'It seems that when mages fail to cast a spell, the lag is like .5 rounds' Delandel says, 'basically enough for them to cast again same round' Delandel says, 'Could you increase spell-failure lag to 1 round of skill lag' Dietric has to run, he'll ask his questions some other time, thanks! :) Huma says, 'spell failure is less then 1 round?' Quagmire nods solemnly. Huma says, 'man... that'd be awesome' Delandel says, 'much' Jesus nods his agreement with Huma. Jesus says to Huma, 'It's .5.' Jesus says, 'sometimes one, sometimes same round.' Delandel says, 'people don't fail spells often' Delandel says, 'but when they do' Delandel says, 'OR when spells are sunk' Huma says, 'yeah spell failure is different then spell miss' Delandel says, 'I want there to be lag' Delandel says, 'I had firestorm cast twice in one round, because the first one got sunk' Delandel says, 'that's not fair' Huma says, 'interesting' Delandel says, 'when I kick, I don't get to kick until I hit' Huma nods solemnly. Jesus says to Delandel, 'That i didn't know :)' Delandel nods his agreement with Jesus. Huma says, 'well Huginn is gonna look at it now' Delandel says, 'depends how often you fight sunk poeople, and how often they sink a spell' Huma says, 'along with Somar' Huginn says, 'bug iti' Huma says, 'and me I guess' Huma says, 'yeah bug it' Quagmire says, 'and while you're looking at it, i'm gonna snipe all your asses for that change' Jesus says to Delandel, 'I normally don't spam. i'll have to start. :p'
Huma pokes Jesus with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'go jesus' Delandel nods his agreement with Jesus. Jesus says, 'without outright saying blinding flash sucks, any plans to improve it, lengthen iit, anything?' Huma looks up into the sky and ponders. Huma says, 'I dont know if blinding flash sucks' Huginn says, 'not at this juncture' Huma says, 'and yeah its probably not gonna be changed' Jesus says, 'okies.' Huma says, 'mass blind spells can be useful!' Delandel says, 'well quagmire got jumped' Herbert says, 'flash is just crowd control more than anything' Huginn hasn't seen the info yet Jesus says to Huma, 'Because there's som much multiples going on? :p' Huma giggles at Jesus. Delandel says to Huginn, 'he won't lose.' Huginn nods his agreement with Delandel. Huginn says to Delandel, 'Was talking about the other info.' Huma says to Jesus, 'Well to answer your question no we cant make create in effect cause with a doppel.' Jesus says to Huma, 'Not asking you to :)' Delandel says, 'ah, hehe' Huma licks Jesus. Jesus says to Huma, 'Just useful in pk.' Huma says, 'so who else has a question' Delandel says, 'maybe he'll win without taking damage and we'll be able to fight' Huma has been blinding flashed in pkill real good. Huma says, 'blinding flash is a pick your spot skill, its a skill, gotta use it skillfully' Huginn says, 'sort of like firestorm' Huma nods his agreement with Huginn. Delandel says to Huginn, 'there we go.' Huginn says, 'ah there it is' Jesus says, 'i'll agree on that and all.' Huma says, 'just like noise or rage' Huma says, 'or... bash =P' Huma says, 'gotta know when to use it and when not to' Jesus says, 'still think it lacks a bit, tho.' Huginn laughs. Huma says, 'ok who else is raising hands today?' Delandel says, 'only 4 hp left' Huma says, 'nice' Delandel says, 'huginn restore quagmire?' Delandel says, 'please?' Huginn shakes his head in disagreement. Huma says, 'anyone else with any questions?' Delandel says, 'let me make one up' Delandel raises his hand.
Huma pokes Delandel with Kryptonite. Huma says, 'go ahead sir' Delandel says, 'what is the damage on the immolate on the trident?' Huma says, 'dont know and I dont think I could give you a specific number if I did know :(' Delandel says, 'ya' Huma says, 'I know its less then the spell' Delandel says, 'you see, that question was an interesting one' Huma says, 'cast by a mage' Huma nods his agreement with Delandel. Huma congratulates Delandel on a job well done. Delandel says, 'because imms have repeatedly said exact numbers for spells cast by weapons' Huma says, 'truly a good question' Huma says, 'have they? Oh' Jesus says to Delandel, 'Agreed, no way of finding out for yourself.' Delandel says, 'like 15 hp on the gust of wind for sastram' Huma says, 'well I dont know if its something I should say, but even if it is, I still dont know =P' Delandel says, 'ask the others?' Delandel says, 'I would like to know' Delandel says, 'because there is no way to 'experiment'' Huginn says, 'not that I've seen.. but more than 15 less than 50' Huma says, 'I dotn think its something I should just be rattling off exact numbers' Huma says, 'yeah what Huginn said' Delandel chuckles politely. Herbert stands up. Huma says, 'alright then' Delandel says, 'is it affected by mind?' Delandel says, 'not the damage' Huginn says, 'not for objs' Delandel says, 'but it's ability to get through sink' Huma says, 'yeah its not' Huginn says, 'the thing about sink' Huginn says, 'for most weapons' Huginn says, 'is that its based not on the damage of the spell but on the level' Huginn says, 'some weapons have high cast level, others don't' Huginn says, 'so they don't all cut sink the same' Jesus says to Huginn, 'That needs to change, with sink.' Huginn says, 'err no' Chaykin waves happily. Somar waves to Chaykin. Huginn says, 'its actually correct' Delandel says, 'cast level?' Delandel says, 'hello?' Huginn nods solemnly. Jesus nods his agreement with Delandel. Delandel says, 'cast level is what you make of it!' Straussy disappears into the void. Straussy has returned from the void. Huginn nods his agreement with Delandel. Huginn says, 'right' Delandel says, 'I think cast level is god of all' Huginn says, 'it can help' Jesus says to Delandel, 'It is.' Huma says, 'yeah we dont have levels with Imms we have cast levels' Huginn says, 'but it's not the end all' Delandel says, 'If you bothered to not get skills and work hard for your mage, you earned it' Huma says, 'Somar is 38 cast level Huginn is 67 cast level' Jesus says to Huginn, 'It can be.' Huginn says, 'yes it can be' Somar says, 'but I have a level 53 beam of pain' Huginn says, 'but not if you care about it' Huginn says to Somar, 'Get some penicilin?' Huma snickers softly. Somar nods his agreement with Huginn. Huma says, 'nice' Somar says, 'zing' Huma says, 'go to the free clinic' Huma says, 'ok anyone else with any quesitons?' Huginn says to Jesus, 'Just saying its a choice..' Huma says, 'anyone anyone?' Huma says, 'ok I am outta here then' Kryptonite thuds as Huma attempts to bounce it - what a klutz. Herbert says, 'Quesitons sound like aliens from Dr Who' Somar says, 'thud!' Huma says, 'meeting adjourned!'
