Second Channel: Aquamarine Island

 

Please take note that the server will shut down for about 10 – 15 minutes at approximately 7:00 a.m. website time (7:00-ish) to implement a second channel for our server called Aquamarine Island. We are testing this channel to see if it eases the occupancy of the first channel, Ruby Island. You can log in and choose to go into either one of the channels. Since this is not a new server, but just a second channel in the same server, you do not need to create new accounts/chars to play in the second channel. This test will run for several weeks to see how everything goes.

If you ever played RuneScape it will be like their "world" system.

Two worlds but using the same profile eg.

A friend can be logged in on Ruby, and is sitting at Paradise Shop.

You can be in Paradise Shop on Aquamarine, you will not see him as he is online on the other world/server.

You can message him, but you won't see him.

Guild chat will be shared between the 2 channels?

Even though that isn't how it worked on eTO, +1 on the idea. Highly supported, though I'm not sure if it was actually meant to work like that

I thought if we can whisper (like talestyrone mentioned above) everyone of the other channel then guild chat might work like that too ^^ I totally don't remember my Jewelia time in old eTO ._.

You couldn't talk between channels IIRC. The only thing you would see between Pearl and Ruby were the different megaphone messages. Player megaphones, 3rd job megaphones, etc.However if we could talk to people between channels that would be pretty baller. I don't necessarily know that's possible. But this is cool, thanks y'all.

I guess if everything goes smoothly, this will be permanent? If chat can be shared it will be awesome, otherwise i will stick to one ;p

Hardcore players be like creating 10 more accs to afk simultaneously causing the overcrowding >:l

It would be nice if we can have Aquamarine be the "afk" server if people arent able to guild chat/whisper/other stuff interchangeably? That way we can just have our main server stay not so crowded and we will be able to play without crazy lag or something. I doubt itll happen but it would be nice to not have all that crazy lag ;w;

Finally, another channel added which this makes anyone who has lag issues can get into the channel without too much lag to handle.

I might head to that channel instead of Ruby. I really don't lag too badly, just a tiny bit of it.

I remember Pearl Island way back on eTO :3

It is a good idea, because the server is doing very full

Since we have 2 channels, any chance we can have next months event be emerald boxes or an event similar where you can get unlimited rewards

I worry that'll happen and then the economy will shatter like how it did with the dice event :/ (of course I wasn't here when the emerald boxes came out so please feel free to correct me, but free rare stuff like that just doesn't seem to benefit the economy all too well....)

Well, the economy can swing in two ways. 1. In favor of the many 2. In favor of the privileged. I'm no socialist, but I really think event that appeal to the masses work best for the game as a whole. More people with better gear makes for a more enjoyable game! Also, you said the economy "crashed" in the dice event, when it really couldn't have been better. What you saw was a shift in resources. The economy didn't crash, it simply "moved". It shifted from being predominantly in the hands of a few toward being in the hands of the masses. Events like the dice event are precisely how an economy can be saved, not destroyed. An event that did crash the economy, however, was the first CWB event (the current one is doing the same thing). In the dice event, players simply allowed their galderrs and MS to change hands, but in the CWB, the money (if you're buying from item girl which I assume you are) disappears forever when it's given to item girl. With so many giving their money to item girl, the economy couldn't keep up. Galderrs simply weren't being "created" (that is, items being NPCed, galder drops from monsters being picked up, etc.) fast enough, and as a result, the economy swung in favor of galderrs as the main form of currency. That was the first time I think I've ever seen trickster's economy FAVOR galderrs over myshop points, since myshop points are almost always more valuable than galders.
An event like the sapphire box (the one Khloe suggested in te suggestions thread for March) is just what the economy needs so that it can stabilize.
I'm fully in support of an event similar to emerald boxes with keys drill able again. (If it's possible, I'd like to see them be "Sapphire" boxes instead of "Emerald Box No. 4", but it's fine if they are. Idc!)
