    Take note: this idea has now been accepted!

    It appears that some players on the forums, seem to want an increase in the chance of the dormant key quest item spawning so that it becomes much easier for them and for other people to do the quest overall. Here's some chat from the forums about this:

    1. [​IMG] Today at 2:32 AM - Shaikh Nedab:
      i guess we need increase in drop rate of key for dormant tanks as we have to kill 4 of them and not only one player needs to do it. just saying its all upto admins
    2. [​IMG] Today at 6:30 AM - Horama:
      yeah i agree with shaikh
    3. [​IMG] Today at 12:31 PM - timkit:
      you guys can't handle the patience of how long it takes to get a key for the dormant tank hideout right?
    4. [​IMG] Today at 1:34 PM - Shaikh Nedab:
      the reason i said that is we need to get 4 keys to complete whole quest which is much difficult considering other players want it too.
    Ignore what I say here after shaikh's chat, Irrelevent to this topic.
    1. [​IMG] 29 minutes ago - Horama:
      no key 4 times or 5 times yesterdaay every day just increased it a little mute
    2. [​IMG] 28 minutes ago - Horama:
      i play all campagn need to wait 6 hours to replay a dormant map
    3. [​IMG] 27 minutes ago - Horama:
      i didnt know all spawn for 3 dormant map taking more time
    4. [​IMG] 23 minutes ago - Horama:
      u add if someone other find key etc
    Why don't I suggest either increasing the chance from 45 to 60% chance? or you can have it spawn in say 3 tries in any 1 out of a possible number of spawn locations for the quest item. Anyways I'll recommend this idea more if more people want it.

    I'm also leaving a poll here to see what the others think.

    yes 60% rate sounds good. it will still make this quest unique and time consuming(which it was meant to).

    really should add up that drop chance.
    u really have to be very lucky to have the key or the door to spawn.

    Did a admin going post here or going ignore the whole community ? not to be bad but since 1 week i think you have time to say something

    i finish the quest you see but i have complain from people , and it give exactly the reason given on first post

    Not all can be a no -life and play 6 hours by day ^^

    Spawn chance is now 60%.

    It was less a case of 'ignoring the whole community' (I doubt the 10 people that voted is 'the whole community') and more I deemed this low priority when I first saw it a week ago, then completely forgot to come back to it.

    Also you seem to get the impression than 1 week is a long time. We only have 2 developers, HC is ultra busy as of late and doesn't have the time to be checking the forums all the time. That leaves just me, and guess what, I have things to do as well, thus I'm not going to be able to leave a response all the time, nor am I going to be able to remember everything that was posted here. Have a little more patience.

    Thanks for accepting the idea Mute, I don't think we will have any more trouble with the dormant tank quest now.

    Better leave you to to get on with the work for this month, I'm sure its very important right now. Plus we will make sure to have more patience with these posts from now on.

    Well if your forums is dead then you should ask the players them self who plays this mode.
    Not being rude or anything else, just I feel like there is a lot of wasted resources on this forum where it could spent some where else.

    Hey mute, you able to close this thread and this issue on TAIGA (same as here on the forums)?

    Irrelevent now to have any new posts about this idea as it has been accepted.

    The point of my mini rant wasn't that this place is 'dead', it's that I was questioning how missing one thread that didn't receive any bump since the original date until the two comments before mine on the same day is somehow 'ignoring the community'.

    Anyway this thread has served its purpose.
