Are mods really that bad? For me Mabi has always been this fragile little game that stops working properly at the slightest breeze so I've never actually bothered touching them -plus I don't like the thought of getting banned- but my philosophy regarding games is that instead of being fair its their job to be fun. So if people are using mods that make Mabi more fun or help weed out the unfun stuff then sure, it's not like Mabi is a competitive game after all. If someone wants to make Nao dress all skimpy and have a big glowing sword or alter their UI to be less clumsy I see no reason not to let them.
Granted a few mods (multi-client mod) might cause some serious problems, but its not like mods as a whole should be disparaged just because a few of them -I can really only think of one of them actually- let you overinflated the economy. Otherwise I say let players have fun playing the game in ways not originally intended, so long as the player base is enjoying the game more because of it.
part of what makes mabi fun is work you have to put into it. there are a few skills or events that I dislike however I don't think using a mod to cheat or make it easier is a fair answer. so I don't see how getting away with cheating or doing less work is supposed to make things fun or fair. if I ever used mods I would feel bad for doing less work then other players and it is unfair to the players that actually put effort into the game and earn what they have.
What we need is a mixture of both approaches.
-Force players to link accounts to a phone number or something (might as well implement 2-step authorization in the process)
-Nerf players - their reforges, primarily - so they can't solo content with meaningful rewards so easily (Pretty sure a bot with decent stats and a good FH set can carry a couple more bots through Conflict at this point, and I actually suspect one of these suspicious groups is doing this)
-Nerf content rewards (at least gold rewards) to make sure no significant amount of gold is given unless a certain amount of time/difficulty is invested/overcome
-Buff monsters so a significant portion of them aggro and actually attack before they get nuked. This is a big reason why stuff like Conflict is so easily done nowadays, to begin with.
-Improve overall Quality of Life in the game, so there's less reason to even make more accounts (This applies to em-words too by the way: add more in-game options to lessen lag, and most people won't bother with them). Stuff like increasing storage space so there's no reason to make a new account for bank space, making sure certain items can't be traded. They've actually done a pretty good job of this as of late; I know they can't take it too far 'cause storage is a large part of the reason people spend moneys on this game.
Would it make u feel any better if they looked differently, if there names had nothing in common or w8 maybe they need to be in totally different guilds. when there is an item you want in a shop and it s cheap do u care if the person who got that happen to get it while they were spamming a mission or dungeon and happen to get it on one of there alts. the way i see it games has other problems and this ain't one of them, just because other ppl are making more in game money then u need to be so jealous about it. i personalty don't do the whole multi characters at once thing, but i see nothing wrong with the ppl that do. everyone has a place style that suits them and and this post to me its like this if u haven't in pass or are not doing it now, you will at some point so whats the problem ?
You will care about these problems, because this game got an inflation that is increasing really fast with all that gold selling/buying and alt spamming. I hate when people are being ignorant about things that seem not right or okay at all and later when they get affected by it, they finally wake up and start to do some action, but it will be probably too late already if that ever happens...
Capitalism, seems you don't understand that, or your just feigning that you do not. game has problems but inflation at least on the server i play on Ruairi its not a problem. so pardon me for being "ignorant" and not seeing a problem where there is none
I agree that it can tend to be hyperbolic, and its a secret war as silly as it sounds in 'equal treatment' and 'equal opportunities' if you get what i mean lol. Elves tend to ramble because you'd have to play elf for a 'really' long while. After using archery for so long, you feel cheated. One of my biggest gripes is the controversial/contradictions within the game mechanics/game logic where giants are seen as 'poor' in archery but have no need to aim or dexterity, can instant hit anything within 2k range, as opposed to elves who are the most dexterous, which means we'd have the highest accuracy.
This may sound childish but it really is annoying being interrupted of your skill/talent you main like Team Skull is in your face slapping your coffee during break. Those videos are so hilarious though.
I think elves are meant to be shafted at the way things are going with the renovation update -> racial update
