    I mean not to be rude, but @Erictigerawr did anyone actually ask for duels to be changed? I mean I haven't seen a thread about duels in months. Not that I'm not grateful it's fixed, and I like we can spectate duels. But duels aren't exactly the most important thing...

    Just because an improvement or an update wasn't asked doesn't mean we're not going to add it. The previous system was outdated, complained about, and caused many of the previous dupe glitches, so we sought to update it.

    The Administration Team plans updates based off what we think is overall best for the server. We still take in your guys' feedback on many things, but we shouldn't have players complain "we didn't ask for this" when we release a nice update and improvement to the server after working on it for quite some time.

    The updates are supposed to be based on the community suggestions not on what you think is the best for the server. I'm pretty sure no one asked for the duel system to be updated. Even though the fixes you made to some of the glitches are good, overall it's not a good update considering it took 2 weeks to make.

    Ok I at least mostly understand your reasoning now. I hadn't thought about the dupe glitch. Thank you for responding.

    +1 tbh I was expecting something huge this week but they decided to update duels which no one asked for instead of creating new content or revamping classes, or any of the suggestions that the community has made. Im honestly really disappointed...

    You're completely wrong there. While players may want certain things added or suggest good ideas, they don't think about how it all falls through like we do. How will this affect the server 6 months from now? What can this do to retain players? What can we make to simply improve the server?

    For example, some of the community wanted everyone on the server to be "Globally Unbanned" when the new management came here. They thought it was the "only way" for Treasure Wars to get it's players back, yet they were wrong.

    If we were to go off everything the community asks for, it wouldn't lead us to anywhere. A majority of the community enjoyed this update, so if we weren't to add it and were to release something completely different, they would still complain.

    As I stated above, we do what we think is best for the server. That doesn't mean we simply ignore you or "don't listen to the community". If we weren't going to listen to the community we wouldn't be here and we wouldn't work countless hours a week to push out new content and fixes to the server. While you may want certain things, we're in the position to determine if it's something we will add to the server or not, as we stand in a position where we see everything both frontend and backend, and come from experience.

    I'm not saying that you guys have to implement every single suggestion that the community suggestions but there are certain things that we have been asking for to be implemented for months now and it hasn't been done. For example, the revamping old classes idea. The majority of treasure wars wanted this to be implemented as it increased then amount of pvp and you guys said you were working on it but it's been like 2 months now and nothing has happened. Another example is more ways on making xp more relevant. Again the majority of the treasure wars wanted it but you chose to ignore. There are multiple other suggestions that are agreed on by majority of society but you don't listen to them.

    I'm not saying I'm ungrateful I'm just saying that there are more important stuff to focus on like making new content so people don't get bored. All people do nowadays is afk igs,pvp or maybe do a heroic but it's getting really boring and if you guys don't implement a suggestion that is new and exciting then the player base will slowly decrease.

    We have both an enchantments balancing update and a class balancing update in the works, though these updates take much longer for us to develop and get out to the server. When it comes to making a new feature, the developers make code for that and then test it. When it comes to balancing classes and everything, we have to work with the staff members and well known players to give us a good estimate of what needs to be buffed/nerfed, meaning the first attempt isn't going to be the "perfect balancing". We could've easily released both of these updates a while ago, though they would've been rushed and could've made them worse.

    I am just replying to your balancing comment. How do you explain that slot crystals and prot runes are the only way for you to actually create a proper god set and the only way you can get them is wash up or p2w people.In legit 3 days slots went from 500k to 1.5mil. Prot runes- ever since you patched heroics prot rune go from 100k to 750k a piece. The same goes for soul gems. Well that's not great balancing and from the point that you were able to make your set not with ease but it would go a lot more smoother, now you need to be the richest person in the realm. Balancing...

    • Patched users being able to spawn withers in the Nether.
    Rip, so are withers 100% disabled? Or can we spawn them in the overworld? If they're disabled then rip beacon clues because we can't get nether stars then. :/

    Just to confirm Eric and Eraze this is an awesome update well done to you guys very pleased with it, simple but also includes everything that people have wanted, only thing I have to say is that via a hotfix you guy added nether stars to washup chests so why can't you add protection runes?
