  • Hey guys, I really enjoyed the show this week. I have one comment about keeping your raid counter after a TR.

    I feel that the romantic notion of ‘Old School’ does not apply to this game anymore. This game has changed and what worked a couple of years ago does not work now.

    In the past it was very easy to complete 20 Shrouds, 20 VoN’s, 20 DQ’s, etc. and the reason was.. that you were stuck at level 20, there was nowhere else to go for the character! If you felt like TR’ing you could wait until its 20, 40, 100th completion in a raid.. in the meantime you could work on your Alts. Players used their alts a lot.

    The game now is different. The game now drives players to focus on making one of their characters really good, and not focus that much more on their Alts. Players want to get their Epic PL’s done, by the time they can do a 2nd/3rd run of a raid they are 2 levels above and looking at the next one, and when they cap they quickly ETR. Players don’t wait as long as they did before, because as much as they complain, there is a lot more to do now.

    I vote for keeping the raid completions on TR.
