    To show the test only login again you need to validate your files. Should show the test option, but then logging in is another thing

    Just think about how useful of a change this is for a server without mercs. Sort of makes sense on the timing.

    I can't login any of my characters to Test. I get an error about only being allowed to have one per client but I have zero. :p

    I still don't see how this is fixed. It's not like I ran this all night long, but 720 seconds should be enough to see some type of % close to 12% as the AA window says.

    And only 14 procs is LIGHT YEARS away from a 12% chance to proc still.

    Can not even log one account on.....can we get this fixed?
  7. Tippylulu New Member

    I can't log in today. Says I can only have one account on one machine and that's all I have!

    Same issue as Kizant and Xic and others. This is stupid, please don't try out your progression code on a server that isn't progression. Do a beta or something.

    Just FYI. My workaround was to change my mac address. Now it let's me login all three.

    We just forced a cleanup and are pushing a build to address the login issue now. The server will be coming down in about 30 minutes.

    Is it a long downtime?? deciding on going to bed (here in the uk) or staying up for more eq
  12. JChan Developer

    Test is back up. We've also turned off the one account per machine at a time.
  13. Pirlo Augur

    Wait a minute...

    So I can do a group of mage, cleric, bard, and invite my rogue and zerker friends to dps the mob while the air pet tanks???

    Waaaat? :):):):eek:

    That was kinda my thought as well. I like the idea myself, but it's definitely gonna reopen a can of worms. Now that pet tanking can be used in a larger variety of situations, it does blur the class role lines even further. I'm just hoping they don't follow this up with a nerf to pet survivability, defeating the entire purpose. At this point I think I've seen too many sudden nerfs that seeing something this positive makes me wonder, "Ok, what's the catch?"

    I'm curious if a dev could comment on the design decision to finally let this happen again after all these years. I'll reiterate that I really like the potential change, but I'm super curious as to what triggered this.

    Edit: Side note, everybody is talking about mages, but it seems like beastlords should be pretty excited about this, since they could actually stand toe to toe with their pet while solo.

    Pirlo, it does mean that all my caster toons who have terrible weapon skills finally stand a chance of beating on mobs while the pet tanks... I love this change
  16. Silv Augur

    After the 'Great pet nerf battle of 2014' Beastlords and Necros have enough sense to keep their mouth shut - whether it be a positive or negative change.

    If anything it's probably a bone to the new TLP server (surprise surprise) so that there is even less reason to have to box a tank etc. if you have a pet class available.

    The gamma thing is weird. Now my gamma is fine in game, but once I log out my entire system is dark as anything. What gives? :p

    Prior to the 12/4 patch gamma would be dark in game until about halfway through between char select and entering the world.

    Please fix! :p

    Still getting kicked off of test when loading up multiple accounts. Tried validating game files, still no luck. Anyone else having issues with this?

    Will Test server players complaining that their server is being used to test things ever stop being funny?
  20. Gyurika Godofwar Augur

    The fact that it's broken and causing people to be locked out completely from being able to log in any character regardless of the amount seems to be the primary complaint. Luckily for me I haven't tried to play in several days so I haven't had to personally deal with it but those that have do make a fair point.

    Test is a place to test changes to the entire game. It shouldn't have been the place they tested the changes to a single server without at least letting the players know well in advance that it was coming and working more closely in game and on the forum with the active players on Test to iron out the bugs.

    A couple of brief patch notes and a few responses are better than nothing but still miss the mark in my opinion. The way they handled the 16th anniversary task bugs and the auto loot system changes is a great example of how they should do these sort of tests.
