True, it all means nothing in the end, but at least on Teal anyone had a chance at anything (in the short run). If you were insane enough to not sleep for a couple nights for a video game, you could...

I think that's likely throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

We know the wiki is based on 2003 numbers (thanks Dolalin), and we also know that they're off mainly because Verant changed ZEMs in...

To be clear (and this is true for all player agreements), the wiki means nothing ... or at least, almost nothing.

What matter is purely what the players on the ground are willing to do. All the...

LOL, if a patch falls in the woods and no one's around to experience it ... :)

(But seriously, I just assumed Red still got patched; does it not?)

What's funny about this is that zillabunny and I reached completely opposite conclusions ... and yet I suspect we're both right.

I have an obvious bias, but I don't think the forum was the best way to show off guilds anyway.

Guilds were forced to constantly make stupid posts on their own threads to try and keep their thread...

I think the default assumption for all changes in all patches is that they apply to Green, Blue, AND Red.

If they don't, the staff usually will say specifically, but since that likely requires...

There's two things to consider, the "letter of the law", and the practice. Here on P99, practice > letter, and I suspect that's very relevant in cases like that.

If anyone is curious why the wiki numbers are so off (in some cases), that post has the explanation/history.

If you want to live dangerously, just let one mob be higher than the other, but then take them into the next fight.

This typically happens when you have a mob of (say) level 55 and a mob of (say)...
