I agree there, and I also agree with you Catti.
Well, may be in a year... :)

No new content to speak of for another year, and people whining that the content they have fond memories of is now split into chucks and now just a glorified skirmish (ie, Helegrod)
Not sure I understand. Allowing people to run some of the old content at 75 would be fun, but I know you just love disagreeing with me ;)

The Devs can't do two things at once.

Either they work on making old content that people are sick of scale to cap - bastardising them in the process - or they work on new content and new instances and move the game forward instead of looking backwards.

With RoI, I know first-hand they had to spend most of their time working on anything but the expansion. Which meant that many things were arguably rushed, and the cluster came late (arguably still rushed). Reasons for this were varied and many (WB takeover, preparation to migrate the EU playerbase, making the substantial Update 2 & 3 content releases...)

I know that they already have the fluff pre-sorted, so they don't have to work on these throughout the year (things like the new treasure hunt event, the new farmers festival, and otehr festival updates and other timesinks).

So the only thing on their Calendar besides the usual minor bugfix patches is the Great River content update (Update 6 / Spring) and then the RoR expansion. Which unlike RoI should get the full dev attention.

I will certainly be up for helping anyone I can with Alastria or Alastrovic. Please feel free to ask me for anything. I like helping out lower level guys too as if we can help those guys faster, then we will have more characters that can help in more raids.

I would like to offer Alastria (LM) for Orthanc and Draigoch, but as said I will gladly pop along to any lower level raid to have fun.

I kinda dislike having to plan my game in advance, since I have so much planning to do in my professional life. But I also see the need for signups, so I'll better get to it.
i do have the feeling that ppl dont understand the plan. U are not gonna think in advance because is not that u need to join the raid when you are in top of suicide list. U will sign up as usually and u will have the spot assured if not too many champs before you on the list. IF they are, they will have the spots assured, they will be suicided and u will advance on list. This will like a rotation between dps classes mostly and will give all the chance to join, no matter how fast u write your name on the sign up list. Next time when u will want to sign up on the ToC, if your position on the list is higher, u will have the spot assured. After that, u will be suicided. Let say that your only disavantage will be that u may not have the chance to join every time u sign up. But that is relative because before to implement the system u had the same chances, depending how fast u had the ocasion to check the forum and sign up on the list.

IS NOT MANDATORY TO JOIN if your position is higher. Actually u dont even must think on that suicide if u dont want. Sign up for raids as usually.
I'm not referring to the suicide aspect for being able to join a raid. When I say "planning", I just refer to signing up. I have been slacking there lately and I have only myself to blame.

I have all confidence that this new system is well thought out and fair. I spent 8 months maintaining a system for distributing loot across a hundred players in my previous game. I know it is not an easy task.
