Confused, but Good News (TM)

And for the record, I’m setting this to post this afternoon so you know it’s not April’s Fool. But my confusion really made me second guess that for a moment, except GOA didn’t post it today.

GOA are instituting a system of ‘wildcards’. You get to use three a year. They can be used to change influence items chosen by mistake, to sort out mistaken server transfers or messed up guild transfers or to fix need/greed rolls (when you thieved an item from someone else by mistakenly hitting need).

Read all about it properly on GOA’s site. It’s not even a translation thing, just reading it made my mind go funny. Seriously.

Now, I do like the idea of being able to fix certain things, especially the server transfer stuff. The items and need/greed stuff seems a bit of a nightmare to monitor for CS staff, but I think limiting people to 3 uses of these things on a rolling year cycle is something and to then offer them is good and useful progress.

It’s just a bit confusing, but maybe that’s because I’ve never needed to do any of these things. Or, maybe I’m having a fuzzy-headed day!

  1. WoW supposedly has a similar limit, but the GM’s will not tell you what it is (only that the thing you’re asking for will count as one of your restores). You’d think that publicizing the policy would actually make the GM’s lives easier, since they can point to a cut and dried, no arguing limit, but I guess time will tell.
