Why are you mischaracterizing what we are?
The end game isn’t closed off unless you’re a scammer or your personality is so bad that no one wants to play with you.
Does saying that dom clans are closed off because we have some internal etiquette on how you earn drops make you think Epona’s system is more “free?”
It ain’t all about selflessness on Epona. Please stop mischaracterizing both Epona and dom clan servers to make it seem like there’s some intrinsically greater value.
How is it mischaracterizing? I’ve been apart of both the dom clan and rival clan on belenus... I know how they both operate and I know the attitudes/mindsets of those in there and I also know it’s replicated in each server with slight differences. Now that I’m on a free server I’m able to look back at my past experiences with an unbiased view and am able to make judgements like that. I’m not talking about the systems in dom clans and how gear is distributed as I honestly don’t care, I’m talking about the idea of dominance in general and why, in my opinion, I think free servers work a lot better in a game like this than competitive/single dom clan servers. Epona didn’t rise in popularity by chance
Saying you’re not biased is silly.
And Epona’s popularity is driven by an idea more than a practice.
Made yourself an outcast? Go to Epona.
Boss once a month, but want an opportunity at Godly drops? Go to Epona.
Want to sell the boss drops you earned? Go to Epona.
So recruitment across servers go well as the utopia is described. More people, more chests purchased, better plat item prices.
More active people on the server and loot doesn’t drop any faster on Epona compared to anywhere else. The saturation is pretty high, and the overall gear spread is sparse. The player churn seems pretty high so far.
I’m working my way up on Epona just to give it a whirl, but there’s quite a few detractors that are glaringly obvious. At least I’ve met some good people to offset it.
You have a very large forum presence. 2000+ posts. The rose-tinted glasses about Epona whenever the topic appears seems like a recruitment ad every time I’m lurking on the forums. Again, feels manipulative.
