    Getting tiresome reading forum warriors telling people that their requested change will NEVER happen because reasons, only for it to happen a few months later.

    Give us a list of stuff that they have fixed during the history of TLPs so we can have a nice long copypasta for future use.

    Still sticking with my stance that there will never be a server without Krono.

    Ability to change your name

    illusion thru doors - totally "fixed" due to complaints from tlp players - no one on regular servers ever complained it was broke for 15 years.

    We gave our Live friends a lot of poison.

    That is a two way street my friend. A lot of busted TLP stuff is a result of live tinkering as well.

    Looking at you passive melee boost AA and dot revamps in particular.

    The most impressive "I can't believe they ever gave this to TLPS" is absolutely extended target.

    Click from bags is nice QOL. Extended Target goes waaaaaaaay beyond QOL.

  8. Triconix Augur

    Necro 2.0 nerf
    Necro DoT revamp
  9. Risiko Augur

    Three biggest ones I can think of are:

    "Casuals don't deserve to kill dragons":
    - Reason... If you can't dedicate 24 hours a day to playing a GAME, then you just don't deserve to kill dragons you filthy dirty casuals
    - Hello Phinigel TLP server. NEXT!.

    "There will never be a multi-box server with instanced classic raids":
    - Reason... all those box armies would cause too much strain on the servers by having their own raid instances
    - Hello Rizlona TLP server. NEXT!

    "There will never be more armor models added to the game":
    - Reason... the game just doesn't have enough memory left to put new assets in the game
    - Hello Hero Forge feature. Hey if you are willing to pay to USE the feature, they magically found a ton more memory available in the game to add armor models. Money money money!

    Mitigation of the Mighty and other boss tweaks to make them not flop over from a single group of mages. Everyone told me it wouldn't happen.
  11. SnapVine Elder

    my favorite is that the old Refer-A-Friend exp bonus can NEVER be limited on any server because it would be a "breach of contract" or something similar. I used to see that a lot.
  12. Atomos Augur

    God, thank you so much for this thread. <3
  13. ShaggyG Journeyman

    This one still bothers the crap outta me because it came out during Luclin originally and the gear was based on that.

    Pretty sure this is wrong. The CT2.0 was released mid POP - sometime in 2003 - on live servers.
  15. Aegir Augur

    The Revamped Cazic Thule came in game just when a lot of the Major hardcore guids had just farmed their first rounds of Emperor and was peeking into Vex Thal. It was in Luclin for sure and it was a pretty damn brutal zone back then revamped.
  16. ShaggyG Journeyman

    I can't find the actual mention in the patch notes for it, but you can find the first comments on boots of flowing slime on zam in march 2002, while pop was released october 2002.

    From my own personal memory, going in there the day it opened, the chanter in my group had KEI and it was the first time it was cast on me and that was during luclin before I started raiding in luclin.
  17. ShaggyG Journeyman

    There was a second revamp to CT in summer 2003 but I think it was mostly fixes.
  18. Trevalon Augur

    Lol, its funny to think that that one sentence by Holly lead to such outrage on these forums that eventually led to us getting instances...

    I guess we should all thank her! Or probably Prathun and Ngreth...I wonder how things are going at blizz....errrrr.....ouch...

    They were in progress before that - but she was fighting against them - Prathun was getting the code ready to allow the possibility in his free time, even though it hadn't gotten approved by her yet.
