~3. Add some new fashion/mounts/flyers that are marriage quest exclusive and require at least 30+ hearts to obtain. (You can even make a fashion design contest for the fashion if you want to)
People have already brought up ideas for marriages and how to make them less abused, and those might be added in the next patch, who knows. There's gonna be redchat spam anyways, and if there's someone constantly spamming about getting a wife, or trolling, you do have a blacklist, you know?
Some ideas for rewards:~1. An exclusive helm that's for level 150 that's better than the Dragon Helm (Doesn't have to be tons better, BUT even a little better would be nice and an incentive for people to go for it) and that would cost at LEAST 150+ MQ hearts. ~2. Add some items like Event Tokens, Super Level Scrolls, Supply Tokens, etc.
The idea for making em expensive or removing the red chat was already said, and it was rejected mainly because of new players wanting to marry a friend etc. And like legit...the only reason people do MQ is for the diamond ring... I don't think there would be a need for all those rewards, especially since people can make alts and abuse them. In addition, the server is meant to be balanced so having an exclusive helm that is above dragon which requires a crap load of hearts isn't worth it.
As for the making them more expensive... with this i agree. I agree because i'm sick of seeing people marrying every 5 minutes and unless it's anyone server famous no one even says grats... PWI may have screwed up in all sorts of ways but in this they did well, there i always felt the need to say "Congratulations!" or something. Here it's just like "eh another wedding, big whoop".As for the amount i think it'd have to be more than 1000 ec. For most that's a day or two of ec farming at tellus or TT, so i think it would slow down weddings a bit but not much, so i think it'd around 5k or 9999 ec. Wedding's are supose to be something special (most of the times, AINT THAT RIGHT STEROIDS?), doesn't matter if ingame or irl.
XD people may not say grats in wc, but i got a blue wall everytime i got married. even the wife would get pms like "grats...." "on the divorce" And again, this is a private server, things are supposed to be easy here. If 1000 ec is required for 1 wedding just because of me (well i'll feel good and evil for one) but the people that do want to marry seriously won't be able to do it (cuz who wants to spend 1k ec on a wedding, well other than me) As for the MQ, I practically lived at the Eldest Matchmaker area last week, and I swear, I could've counted (on my fingers) the people that actually did MQ.
You're a different case, i'm talking in general. Not everyone is going for 666 wives ._.
I will either up the price or make it once a day, not sure yet.
Why do you people care so much bout the things attentions hogs do to get their name into red chat. Can you seriously tell me a few wedding announcements disrupt anything you could possibly doing? Now instead of Agatio working on things that truly matter to improving the server. He's taking time to fix something that isn't broken Quote from: AgatioPretty much this
Pretty much this
I decided that nothing will be changed here - raising the price or make it daily would cause more issues than it would fix, also I don't see why everyone would have to suffer because of few attention seekers, next time I will make sure that these people will be banned.
