Glad you mentioned this. When it was first proposed the person who proposed it was asked to make a topic about it to see what the community thought of this change, he decided not to make a post (needless to say).
We're not against balance changes, as long as they make sense and it has community support behind it. To be clear, what you're recommending is to have MB drop once the users base HP is removed? For example.
A BM, let's call him NoobAlex...
NoobAlex has 5000 BASE HP
NoobAlex has 3 G3's Desaus (4500 HP)
NoobAlex has 2 Level 200 HP Earrings (400 HP).
Total of 9900 HP
Now let's say a 2 players come along and attack NoobAlex. What YOU'RE saying is that NoobAlex should lose his mana barrier when one of the following happens:
His Mana reaches 0 (current setup).
His CURRENT HP reaches the value of his TOTAL HP - BASE HP (9900-5000=4900)
We've addressed this issue already, so I'm not going to spend too much time writing about it here. Game Moderators will be selected once we have some website changes released. (Expected Mid May/Early June, along with some other nice things). On a simpler note though.... You say a SS is not enough (but it usually is), but rarely do people report users & even more rarely do people use the in game block system. The last report for offensive language we received was a few days ago, the user provided a screenshot and the person being offensive was muted within 5 minutes of looking at the screenshot and verifying with the logs.
This is completely wrong (no offence). Elite Testers aren't users who are tasked with a job of testing changes or content (although if they choose to, they can). They are users who support the game. They are users who get insider scoops on updates, changes, future content, etc. They are able to access the Test Server (when it's online) with their accounts, play around, do their own thing, test rates for themselves, use GM commands while on the test server, etc.
I'd like to reiterate 2 things with my above post.
We're always up to make changes to the game (some might take longer than others, and some might get delayed due to priorities). However, when changes like these are requested, it actually REQUIRES that it be requested and there to be a clear show of community support for it. Not a refusal to even start the conversation as the original person did.
If someone is doing something you think might be against the rules or even offensive in nature (to the point where a block isn't enough)... Report it! We'll look into it, and, if needed, act on it.
In a nutshell... Don't just sit around and expect the things you want to happen, to magically happen when you aren't even confident enough in your own ideas to voice your thoughts or opinions. If you have something to speak about, speak it.
