    Talking It's a Party! A Lamannia Party!

    Lamannia Party!

    Hey folks! For the next three weeks we are going to be running a community party on Lamannia! From Thursday April 12th, through April 28th we will be having events on Lamannia! You personally can win 250 Turbine Points once a day, just for showing up! That’s right! Every day, for just for coming to Lamannia you can win Turbine Points. If you win every day for a week that is 1750 Turbine Points! Not a bad deal eh?

    Why are we doing this? Well, we updated some of the backend of the game, including the physics engine. What does this mean…well…everything will be better of course! But…that also means we need to monitor the performance of these changes with “normal” player behavior. There had to be a catch right?

    What we are looking for is anything out of the ordinary, traps not trapping, moving platforms not moving, animations broken on monsters, spells not working or looking weird, bosses not being bossy, and anything else that is out of the ordinary or looks weird when you play YOUR character. These backend systems touch a broad range of features in DDO-the guts of the game so to speak.

    So here is how we will be focusing on the feedback:

    Every two days we will look at a region. There will be Devs/OCR or QA kobolds around every other day to hand out loot, levels and whatnot to make your questing easier.

    So come join us! Have some fun, get some free prizes and hang out with the creators of DDO! Help us get the universe ready for the Forgotten Realms!

    Sounds awesome and fun, Maj & Kookie.

    I know people are going to ask, so I'll do so first: Will we/Can we get a Character Wipe before the party starts?

    How big of a change to the back-end of the engine of the game are we talking about anyway? Sounds like anything and everything can happen.

    Already answered in another thread: it's TP for Live servers, not Lamannia.

    So just to be absolutely crystal clear-

    I have a 16*250 = 4000 tp incentive to be on everyday on lamannia from the 12th to the 28th to make sure that the game is operating smoothly?

    Is there a length of time or some task I need to perform during my time on in order to, in fact, receive the points?

    To be clear you have a chance of getting points. There will be multiple winners every day, I have many many codes at my disposal, I plan on having none at the end of the month.
    And no, just showing up is all that is required, but we would love it if you did things. Anything really.

    Aw great, complete character copy fail >.<

    ...ok, not quite complete. Copied one as a test - fine. Copied main batch of three - all failed. Copied one more for the last slot to re-try - worked. Pity it was the characters in the middle block that I cared about.
