Rule Changes Volume 7 - Amphitrite - 07-04-2018

Rule Changes

Here are the updated rule changes for the upcoming volume <3

Apex limit

Apex creatures are defined as the following creatures: Giga, Reaper, Griffin, Wyvern, Quetz, Mosa, Tusoteuthis, Rock Drake, Rock Elemental and Bronto

The staff team has heavily reviewed our Apex list for the coming volume.  With the addition of both Aberration and Scorched Earth dinos, it was important that we look over the list in order to both balance PvP with creatures, as well as keeping down lag caused by larger creatures such as Wyverns and Rock Drakes.

Because of a large number of popular creatures added to the list, we have also decided to review the max number of creatures allowed.  The new number of 8 creatures is to allow tribes to still be able to have the often necessary larger tribe dinos like a Quetz, while still allowing players to tame some of their personal favorites, like Griffins, Rock Drakes, and Wyverns.


Dino Limit

The dino limit is essentially staying the same other than for large tribes. We are implementing a hard limit of 72(+12 breeding slots) dinos per tribe.  This is hardcoded into the server.

The main reason is to make breeding more difficult and exclusive. To help make it valuable again. Currently, big tribe can breed pretty much anything they want without having to make any tough choices and they have no reason to rely on another tribe to do their breeding for them. 

Everything will stay exactly the same for tribes of less than six people. 12 Dinos per person.

Second Characters

After some of the issues that were seen this volume around second characters, we have decided to track second characters better and ensure that community members who have second characters understand the rules around them properly. 

From the start of the volume, anyone who wishes to have a second character will now have to apply for it through the ticket system just like a breeding license.

So with the introduction of Rock Drakes and Griffins to the Apex list I think we really need an official ruling on what you do if initiated on while mounted on an apex. Since these two are phenomenal travel mounts the chances of being initiated on while on one sky rockets. I respect the decision, I just would love some clarification.


RE: Rule Changes Volume 7 - Basoon - 07-04-2018

If a player chooses to initiate on you while you are riding an apex creature, they are accepting the risk of being attacked by that apex creature. So if you are on a griffin, rock drake, or any apex creature, and you get initiated on, you can use that apex creature. It is the job of the initiator to take into account possible threats and assess the situation before initiating.
