Quote from: DeePee on May 02, 2008, 08:49 AMThose are no eA customs, any server platform can have those. I'm talking about stuff like wings, nightmode, tons of @commands and such.

Quote from: GM Shiris (from TalonRO)Let's face it, getting certain MVP cards in a lowrate server by drop only ridiculously overpowers the lucky person to obtain it. If there's only one or two people with a GTB or a Ghostring, they're instantly on a separate tier from everyone else, and it's unrealistic to expect that anyone else can catch up to that. So, what happens if everyone is allowed to reach that tier instead? It would throw the game completely out of whack.So you're faced with things going out of whack for one person....or throwing the whole game out....or a third option. Bring everything to a new tier. MVP cards were made available for donation, with the caveat that they were all customized to create a new level of gameplay. They are not bound, and a market was produced for them. On top of that, custom items were introduced via quests and unavailable for donation, that work in the context of these customized donation cards. That's where Valk helms and Mjolnirs and Sleipnir's and the rest of the SQI's came from.On top of that, the server once had an ads system, in which players were reimbursed with donation points for participating in surveys, free offers, and trial memberships in sponsor programs and products. Thus, there was a market for these donation points, and they came to be known instead as "ad credits," even. So it's become an integral part of the economy (the credits have historically had a very traceable market value in zeny and have been indicative of overall economic health). Due to some abuse, it was removed, but we're planning to bring it back up in the near future.It's a wild spin on lowrate gameplay, but since it has pervaded the community so much, it's feasible for non-donators to buy both the gear previously obtained via donation as well as the credits to directly obtain the services, as well. And the most powerful items cannot be donated for anyway -- and they do not have strict requirements on multiple people completing the quests, like the official servers. Each character can create one if they have the materials and the time to complete the quests involved.
