Moderator: CL GMs

Do we need more fighter tests?

Yes, of course. Only a pussy would think otherwise.

No, I suck at taking tests so they make my epeen feel small.

I haven't worked on it. I've just finished working on something that'll be in v441 (that should've been done long ago.)

I'll ask again if anyone's interested in making more fighter tests. I've seen some good suggestions on monsters already.

Bump.

[Edit] Oh, neat. Thanks for the update Daimoth. Zynx's thread made me figure nothing was happening.

Played around with possible tests with a newer GM. They were pretty challenging. Eighth was insanely hard. Only Mujin could pass, and barely. <g>

If Mujin could pass, then they are too easy! Mujin needs goals too. :twisted:

Yeah might as well have a 9th and 10th if they are going to add new ones.

I think Mujin and others should be able to pass 7th and 8th. Then add 9th and 10th which they should not be able to pass. If you make it so 7th can't be passed by Mujin then it will take me another 2-3 years to pass and I have already been 6th circle for sometime. I would think that my character should already be half way to passing 7th since I have been 6th for awhile. Don't make it so far apart between circles, we need to have some goals in the game that are realistically reached in a smaller period of time. If it continues as it is where I only notice change to my character after 6-12 months it become very unmotivating to play the game.

Edit: I passed 6th Circle RL: v391 2005-06-05 over a year ago. I would say I should be getting close to passing 7th by now.

How about the idea of not basing it off of any one set of high level characters, just make some well-spaced tests relative to our current ones? Heaven forbid common sense get in our way, though.

Depends on how hard you've been ranking in that time. *shrug.*

Seventh had two Haremau Kittens, a Frenzy and an AMS. Seems to make enough sense.

Eighth had a Crimson Noid, a Green Tok'han and a Black Mamba (really, really tough snake that hit Mujin on full balance.) This one seems to be a large leap.

The Black Mamba caught her by surprise because it had just spawned, it took 50% of her health

Nah, it hit her on full. I saw a visionstone she gave me.

Its brickable. I think. Only saw one, it went down fast. But it wiffed me twice and hit me once.

And it was one fuck of a hit.

I think the time limit might be a bitch on 8th with all that shit in it. Might want to consider giving us longer. I would rather the tests not be balanced around Mujin, who has about 1000 ranks more than any other fighter.

The test is also a HUGE leap in atkus. Hitting a green tok is not a trivial thing.

450 Atkus to hit it every time after it swings? Not so bad.

I'll be way off passing th 7th but id still like to see 7-10 • go in, not just 2. Otherwise in ayears time we'll just moan that there is no 9th! Lets make these ones last.

it seems the main problem with new fighter tests is they are running out of good belt colors
edit: but they did offer new tests with no rewards
