Hello all,

Tonight there will be a maintenance from 11PM - 2AM. You can find the patch notes here: http://pwi-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1739841

Time Conversion: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20150113T23&p1=%3A&ah=3

Maintenance Question: You're stuck on a mountain. You reach what you think is the way out, only to find a large gap, preventing you from getting to safety. You notice however, that there is a long vine, and a really old bridge that looks like it was set up years ago, for the sole purpose of crossing. You need to get across anyway you can, but you can only choose to use 1 method, the vine (via swinging across), or the bridge (in hopes it doesn't collapse). Which method do you use and why?

Keep in mind that both methods have a high failure rate, and falling will pretty much be bad news bears.

    First non-human reply!

    There doesn't seem to be any new manual patch for this maintenance.
    At least not yet.
    What is that web address? PHP is the original name was "Personal Home Page", now Hypertext Processor.

    lol moments ago we were still taling about that management buy-out. So US$20 is the max Mr Chi is offering? Some claim that US$25 is a fairer price considering the huge cash-hoard plus assets it has b:cute

    Can you fix things like:

    remove snowmen,
    mail out TW rewards,
    fix TW times, and
    fix the guild lists?

    Oh wait, I forget this is PWI who prefer to milk their clients for all they are worth while never fixing anything broken in the game.

    With both being a high failure rate i think i would take the bridge over the vine. Bridges usually only start to collapse once you hit the middle and you have the possibility to get to the other side if you haul butt before it completely collapses and or if it splits in two and you hang on you can always climb up the remainder of the bridge to safety. With a vine you don't have that option, its just an instant plummet and death.

    How are the snowmen 'milking' their clients and 'broken." ?????

    Thanks for the snowmen Sparkie, I should have enough chi stones for the next year - 30k should be enough shouldn't it :)

    Will the issue of the server error message be fixed after maint. is over? Been two weeks sence I could log on either account without that stupid message popping up.b:surrender

    As for the maint. question, I'd say the bridge. I can run across that and have a better chance than swinging on a vine....b:laugh

    I'd just jump. I weigh 400 lbs and both would just give out. If I can't go back, I'd hope there's a river at the bottom, that I'd freeze solid, and be thawed out and mistaken for Captain America in 2100 (after all, by that time EVERYBODY in America should be my weight).

    Keep in mind that both methods have a high failure rate, and falling will pretty much be bad news bears.

    (Being that you said ~Gap~) I'd just simply move up hill (from that area) since the gap would be indicative of a highly unstable section of mountain slope that is a 'sloffing off zone' which would have obviously highly underscored the stability of the slope face above it.. And then just simply found the area above it that was most underscored & destabilized by the (sloffing zone) and then just did my best to trigger a land/rock slide in that area above it, so that the resultant slide would fall into the chasm to fill it up as much as it could, then wait awhile for it to pretty much stabilize after the slide hadceased moving anything else left to fill it with (as it cascaded down into the former chasm) and then just simply worked my way across the rubble that had filled it up...b:pleasedb:victory {b:dirty}

    Any word on when TW times are getting fixed? They are still based on China's time and not PST. Or if this is a permanent thing can we get some sort of confirmation either way?

    If I have to choose between the two, I choose the bridge. Both can collapse, both can break...but with the bridge, I have a better chance. At high altitudes, we're taking about moving at a high velocity with low oxygen levels...and the wind speed is different up there.

    Although, I personally wouldn't take either option. And depending upon the altitude, we're potentially talking about what is known to climbers as the Death Zone....where life simply does not exist. Your body functions differently on a mountain, than at normal levels...even more as you begin to reach the vertical limit. (Area before the Death Zone.). For myself, I;d climb back down the way I came. Weather closing in can end a person's life easily, and if I studied that mountain so inefficiently that a huge chasm like that can catch me off guard, then I don't belong on that mountain. Something like that affects the whole climb.

    Even if I were to cross...there is no guarantee that I would be in a better position. Thus, I'm going back down the way I came. Radio'ing to base that the climb is a harder one than anticipated, and descending. No reason to risk my life for that climb.

    The true mark of a great leader isn't just being able to swing ones sword, and charge valiantly...it's knowing when it would be wise to retreat, and when the time is best to sheathe ones sword.

    Sometimes, you've got to know when to fold them.

    Disclaimer: I've never been on a mountain before, but I have a heavy interest in geography, climatology, oceanography, and wildlife study...in case anyone wants to know where I got my data from. If anyone who's actually a climber wants to comment on my post, please do. This has subject has piqued my curiosity.

    I don't use either. I make camp with the supplies i brought up with me and wait for more people to come. Then we can work out a plan together. Perhaps using our climbing ropes and gathering wood from the trees around us to strenthen the bridge. If not we always have the option to go back down the mountain and go around.
