Maintenance question: Be it movie, television, or novel (or other), what is your favorite science fiction series?

    First non-human reply!

    There doesn't seem to be any new manual patch for this maintenance.
    At least not yet.

    I rather dislike science. Literature is more my speed.

    Inception, The Twilight Zone, Black Mirror. I'm generally a fan of sci-fi that doesn't involve space travel. Although I do like most of the Star Trek series, I wouldn't call myself a super fan of those.

    My fav science fiction series is the one where pwi keeps promising to give players a new DQ reward system. It's been running for years now, and there's no end in sight.

    It's suspenseful and has many twists and turns, but they all lead nowhere. It involves unrealistic expectations on both sides, from the players that somehow keep hoping for something to get better, to the management that believes that they can string it along forever and still keep their player base.

    The subplots of promises to fix glitches are somewhat less entertaining, as are the commercials about buying more 'Zen', and the lag and dc headaches.

    I do believe the series will continue to run for quite sometime, although it will be playing to smaller and smaller audiences. Of course if coin value was simply restored to DQ items, the series would likely terminate abruptly. I don't really see that as a threat to the longevity of the series, however.

    Hi all,

    Tonight's maintenance will be at the usual time, from 11pm to 2am. There is no patch tonight.

    Maintenance question: Be it movie, television, or novel (or other), what is your favorite science fiction series?

    I have a maintenance question (or many) regarding the May Login Promotion.

    Ill give an example, I log in on 1 toon immediately after maintenance and stay on for 30 minutes. is that counted as the login for that day?

    If I then log in on another toon at 10:01pm PDT and stay on till after 10:32pm
    is that counted as another login?

    If I log in after reset on still a third toon and stay online for 30min, will that get the tier 1 reward, or does it count as simply logging in on 3 toons once each??

    Alternately what date and time will the rewards be sent by post assuming I relog a toon I have been playing 1 minute after reset each day?

    I'm asking this since I swap between toons at random times and need to know EXACTLY when I should log on the toon I want to get the rewards.

    @LOGIN Promotion

    Hi Sutr, hi Alex, hi PWE staff,

    the most easy way to avoid all confusion and all troubles would be, to make ALL rewards stash-able.

    Just do it.
    Just do it.
    Just do it.

    If you put Account Stash Stone on sale during event in addition, there wouldn't be any rage or QQ (I'd bet all long-term players have it already anyway).

    IT EVEN DOESN'T MATTER IF Demon/Sage Event Card Tickets ARE STASH-ABLE OR NOT, BECAUSE THE EVENT GOLD IS USABLE BY ANY TOON OF AN ACCOUNT ANYWAY!! LIKE "NORMAL" GOLD.



    I also hope you monitor the new (botter/scammer) accounts which will get created during the event... Delete them asap. And while we are at it: why do gold sellers not get banned, even if you report them? The same toons can spam in word chat for months and years.
