Familiar Forums-- 2008 Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I was looking through Familiar forums and stumbled upon the Ice oceans list of Fams. There is a total of 6 have been given out since 2005. The most recent being July 2007. Not that im pointing fingers or anything like that, but wheres the 2008 Fam give away? It looks like 4 were given away in 2006, busy year.

Anyway, just me wasting time on forums when I could be doing something important like solving world hunger.

ICE is a test ocean. There is no (and should be no IMO) incentive for the OMs to give out/award/auction/event-off a Familiar.

I agree with that, Ice is a test ocean and not the same as production ocean. And it doesn't need Familiars, but they were still given out in previous years. I was just wondering why there wasn't anything for this year.

There may have not been anything that would merit one being given. Its been known that some of those that were given on Ice were to people who caught major bugs that would be abused by some and other reasons. Its not a production ocean therefor they have no real value.

He's right tho. Ice doesn't need familiars. If anything there's way too much hoarding and what not on ice as it is. If it weren't for shopes not being able to keep up with new products for testing, I'd be all for semiannual wipes of ice. It's there to test new features, not to be the primary play area.

We may not need them. But it would be nice if maybe they did a biyearly thing. Most of those who wound up winning would go dormant, so it would keep fams from being a big thing on Ice.

Mate, there is little to no reason to have player owned familiars on ice. With OM activity during peak testing periods they can see if there is a familiar caused problum since they have them.

Throw the buggers into the palace shoppe then. Even if you make the rarity of familiars on Ice the same as production oceans, there won't be a big enough test case to be effective.

(Yes, I'm purposely attempting to devalue familiars on Ice. Having a need for something "valuable" on an ocean that could be wiped tomorrow is a horrible idea)
