Thank you very much for posting 'the new plan' Glin. I know it was not met with the expectation you where hoping but dems the breaks sometimes.
I believe if you implemented this when Ed's where first released it would of been met with a lot more positive feedback then you are getting now. I know I would of been all for it. The deal breaker is 'Epic Destiny xp will not be tied to True Reincarnating' comment that was made to the player base when MoTUD was released. Now after a year of people grinding fate points for twists you want to pull the rug out from under us and have us start again in the hope we will buy Epic Tomes of Learning, 50% xp pots and the new Epic Tr heart (which you have not said one way or the other will drop in game or be able to be bought with tokens like True Hearts are) so we can get back to where our characters are now.
IF normal Heroic Tr'ing was not tied to loosing Epic Destiny xp, I wouldn't care one way or the other. I could CHOOSE to Epic TR for the Epic Past Lives or I could CHOOSE to heroic TR for the normal Past Lives and keep what I worked for. Not offering the choice is in my humble opinion the deal breaker. Making us loose the ED xp when we heroic TR is just silly. Why does it have to be done this way. Are you trying to tell us the code for DDO is so borked that it WILL NOT work any other way and that it HAS to be done this way?
The only question I have for you Glin is this since I am not the producer of a MMO, do you believe that this will bring in more players who will spend more money that the amount of players you WILL loose over this and the money they spend?
Unless as some one said before WB is trying to kill off DDO/Turbine for a tax write off....but that is a whole other topic and thread.
