Clearly these people have not taken enough ecstasy. You get a nice big plate of MDMA and you can go right back to launch day!
The quote was to shit on Ngreth, who was the husband of the chick who ran eqtraders, for saying that it was impossible to have classic back again. When you get into the dev side of things there's a very small but very competitive group of people. In the case of Ngreth, he was just some fucktard who got sucked into the eqlive dev crew because his wife had a large following on eqtraders.com, rather than because he had any dev skill.

Huh. I used to be a huge fan of EQ Traders back in the day, but now those bastards won't take the robots.txt off their message board, which means no one can access the wealth of classic tradeskill info from that board that is in the Wayback machine.

In other words, I used to like them ... before they decided they couldn't be arsed to remove one file so that we could have more classic tradeskills [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] Now that story just adds to my annoyance at them.

P.S. Welcome back.

One of the first things I did on P99 was revamp the tradeskills. At the time, there was a player named Astarothel who was exploiting the status of the peq db to manufacture non-classic items, as well as players who were abusing platinum ruby veil resale values. I spent a lot of time basically overhauling the tradeskill database from scratch so it's extremely unlikely that there's anything that was missed.

Not much. High-end scene's just as much of a trainwreck as it was when you were active. Only winning move is not to play that part of the game. Some things never change.

Your telling me. I got banned by him on blue way back, for asking the wrong question. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Regardless Uthgaard, I know you invested a lot of time helping make what the servers are today. You should definitely check out green and enjoy it with the rest of us.

The problem now isn't that the info is wrong, it's that it lacks information about when stuff was added. The old EQ Traders message board would have been handy for tracking down some of that info ... but really we can probably find all that with just Wayback and the main site.

The real reason I wish I could read the old message board was ... maybe as an old school tradeskiller you'll remember this, and it's something that bugs me about the tradeskill implementation here. On Live, I remember it being very well established wisdom that success/failure did not impact skill-ups. Like it was a common myth that they did, and the people who were seriously into tradeskills did experiments and stuff to prove it was a myth.

I know memories are crap, but I remember that "truth" very strongly from old school tradeskilling. The biggest reason I want access to the old message board is so I can find proof to make them work classically here (ie. make skill-ups independent of success/failure).
