No mouse scroll, no play

Mouse scroll really does set the RPG time for an MMO. One unclsassic feature of p99 that fits perfectly. It's not first person but close enough.

RPG tone, not time. Autocorrect. Worst. Feature. Ever.

nobody forces you to play 3 toons, or 2 toons, and you don't fall behind just playing 1 toon, you can always get into another 3 box group, or start your own PUGs, or join a guild

if you wanna play 1 toon and be bored all the time, feel free to to so! I always see like, "single 55 <Class> LFG" in the server channel, plus ive known players who are happy just playing 2 classes.

Plenty of 3 boxers invite single players to their group, there is a 4th person xp group bonus.

I don't usually invite a 4th, but I imagine single players can be of value, as they have their sole focus on one screen.

i'll add that gear is dirt cheap, and only gets cheaper, bazaar economics FTW.

I paid 17k for a fungi, 6.5k for a cloak of flames, 650pp for a wavecrasher, etc etc

Honestly the playstyle of certain classes like mage is so simplistic that boxing can actually make the game more dynamic

2boxís are not bad or hard, especially when you do a good pairing like mage+something or cleric+something. Two classes that both require a lot of micromanagement would be a pain. But pick the right class combo and use the hell out of /autofollow and you get used to the constant alt-tabbing in combat

3box is whole different thing. Your third better be a bard auto-playing a song or you gonna be tabbing like a maniac. I canít even imagine bigger groups than that without some sort of macro or outside-the-game UI assistance

yeah autofollow works extremely well on TAKP, there are legal 3rd party programs like hotkeynet (included in Speedz TAKP client download) that vastly lower your key strokes when swapping windows, or training other skills, or a few other things -- DO NOT abuse this program to automate, the ban hammer will drop.

Autofollow works so well, it reminds me of the /stick command from MQ2

Hotkey lines can do more than on p99 for example: /pause 10; /cast 3, is a legal and extremely useful command. Pauses do not take an entire hotkey line to themselves.

After you figure out hotkeynet, and you set up good in-game hotkeys, you are gonna do really well, then if you want the social aspect, invite other players to your trio.

mouse wheel scroll is still a you being obtuse problem. You got another issue with sunk cost fallacy? Theres nothing stopping you from loading P99 along with TAKP, I often do have both servers up.

Run my mana out on a toon in p99, then screw around with some pulls on TAKP, tab back over to P99 and run that mana out again

Thats true, although on TAKP toxicity is an instaban. They don't fuck around, they don't listen to every little whiny bitch who thinks they deserve a mob more than another guild.

One thing that I think is fuckin' awesome is that, if you are a known toxic server troll, they might just wait until you get 60 and 500 AAs, then ban your toxic ass.

Definitely not like P99 where the staff cowtows to the "super ultra neckbeards" and gives them what they want, if they piss and whine enough about it. No UN bullshit.

The TAKP guilds have a respectable rotation that they all adhere too, and theres very little, if any, drama that unfolds with regard to raid targets.

They will just fucking ban you.

Uh if you mean inferior velious gear then yeah, because there's luclin shit out. The bIs stuff still costs 200k+

So far TAKP is a pretty good server but stop pretending like it's a paradise. There's essentially no grouping or social content as 98% of players are boxing. It also sucks to find high end rare drops and spells because with only about 100 players the economy is like a trickle.
