A. Discord does not data-mine. That's not how VC-funded startups work. At the moment Discord isn't concerned about finding a main source of revenue. They're funded by several investors, which wouldn't be funding Discord if it sold user data. Yes, it does share aggregate user data with

A pair of simple ideas: How about a per-skill high score list? What about setting a higher maximum overall level than the per-skill maximum level?  Then to max out your character, you would have to master many different skills. ___ crossfire

I'd like to have a live high score list on a website, it could be cool to have the 'by skill' option. Perhaps hardcore player graves could also read out your highest skill as well? I agree to your second point. How many skills should a player have to max before it equals max level in your

Hi, Titus here. First a little backstory: I came to Crossfire through another fork that had broken away from CF back in 2006 called Deliantra. I was impressed both with it's roguelike style of gaming as well as it's non-congruent story telling, there was no idea what I might find next. Fast

So instead of skill and general exp being gained at a rate of 1 : 1 you're thinking more like 1 : 0.08? that would cause a player to see max level after about a dozen levels I think.  On Thursday, February 7, 2019, 3:26:20 PM EST, Preston Crow wrote: Maybe all of them?  I have a

Maybe all of them?  I have a character with 13 skills at or above level 110 on Metalforge.  I get the feeling that I'm never going to get there in lockpicking or sense curse, but I could conceive of getting several more up there.  Of course, "all of them" depends on the character, as I don't

No, I'm thinking that the max level for skills would be lower than the overall max level, so the ratio would stay 1:1. On 2/7/19 3:32 PM, bill billy wrote: So instead of skill and general exp being gained at a rate of 1 : 1 you're thinking more like 1 : 0.08? that would cause a player to see

If you're going to call people who don't subscribe to your particular brand of  paranoia 'idiots' you should probably be up for a debate (and know how to spell incite). Time after time you suggest new people coming in learn Linux or use IRC all the while it would be far more intelligent to
