I have. Multiple times. You can act silly if you want, but it doesn't make you correct. Just go back and read my previous posts.

Your idea is bad. I would love to see someone have a good idea for "competitive rotations", but it is highly unlikely to occur, due to the antithetical nature of rotations and competition.

For most casual guilds the top guild is hard to beat. If the random spawn times stayed the same, that means casual guilds wouldn't be able to kill the "gatekeeper" mob the majority of the time,...

It honestly doesn't matter who the "gatekeeper" mob is, because the top guild WILL monopolize them every week. Even if you made it something easy like Nagafen, the top guild is going to have way more...

At this point I can only assume you haven't raided a lot on P99. The top guild is going to be considerably more equipped and well manned than the other guilds on P99. They wouldn't be the top guild...

You don't understand. It doesn't matter how long Sontalak puts you into the rotation, even if it is years. Unless the GM's prevent the top guild from killing Sontalak every week, they are GOING to...

Oh you were referring to that. You're weeks/months timer is irrelevant because the top two guilds are going to be monopolizing Sontalak every week to stay in rotation. I am not sure why you think the...

The point is that if you add a timed component to Sontalak that is strict enough for the top guilds to fail, then smaller guilds will never get into the rotation. For most guilds on the server...

Honestly, if the top two guilds on each server can't complete the competition in the correct time, then no one is getting raid mobs and the server dies.

Considering both servers only have two top...

So if Guild A wins week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, etc., who is on the rotation besides Guild A?

So having one mega-guild monopolize the rotation is in keeping with the intent of rotations? Just admit your idea is flawed.

Lol you are the one digressing here by bringing up petitions in the first place. I am simply pointing out the major flaw in your argument that a "gatekeeper" mob would reduce petitions. It honestly...

And no staff involvement on any mobs is even better for them:) Just ignore all petitions and let people play.

Then why have this system at all? I guess I don't understand your point. If your idea is "the winner gets the mob", then that is just normal Everquest without rotations lol.

The problem with using a 7 day spawn mob is you are basically permanently locking the mob out from the guilds who can kill Sontalak. There could be a new guild tryout every week if it's one guild per...
