Out of curiosity, has there been any discussion or word about lowering this below 15%? It just seems a bit high to me.

No discussion. 10% tax on sale, 5% non-refundable to post. Unless that gold sink destroys more gold than is entering the game I don’t see it changing anytime soon.

We are heroes. This is what we do!

Quote of the year.

I still think that Evon should be generous to his supporters. That way, people who voted against him will think twice about who the better charr is…

I bet it would have been a landslide victory for him if he offered to remove the listing fee for a month.

We weren’t in charge of elections (not sure who was exactly) but I certainly voted for Evon. I have 240-some election buttons to prove it!

I would have had more if the elections wouldn’t have ended before the event was over, even though the items were still dropping. I must say, this was the most bloodless “cut throat” election I’ve ever been a part of. No treachery, no dirty dealings, no accusations. Not even name calling or general mud slinging. These folks should be ashamed to call themselves (former) pirates!

Perhaps Evon could give us a break on the taxes if we show him proof of our support by wearing our buttons.

Edited to add: There is NOT ONE single vote by me for the other candidate. I did not double dip. Evon had my full support.

Re-Edited to add: I would have gladly gone on clandestine missions to deface competing campaign posters, heckle supporters and other disreputable deeds in support of my chosen candidate had he asked it of me. Or post fresh Evon posters and clean up any mess the other side may have caused.

If he offered the end of lottery boxes and silly RNG in them maybe people would have voted for him.
Gem sales go high only with new armour or weapons skins, not on silly boxes full of disappointment.

No they wouldn’t have. The writing team made it impossible for Evon to win. Anyone who did Candidate Trials saw how much an unlikable cartoon villain he was portrayed as. They tried really hard to make people dislike him.

But i did show 100% of my support for him not ever once touching the keil box or her achievements. Spent tons of time in LA voicing my support and showed people his short story so they would know that deep down he loves LA and wants what best for it(plus you know he was more qualified). Yet he still doesn’t want to show me some charr love Why Evon WHY?!?!?!??!?! Makes me a sad charr although crying is not a option for the charr so I’m gonna go beat the tears out of some aetherblade to compensate.

Ellen is Scarlet.


Evon is the mysterious E that sends you mail that wants to help people.

Serves some people right for voting for Ellen. All my support went to Gnash. I hope he raises it even higher, I can certainly afford it.

awe man after learning all the speculations and such i regret voting for ellen but i am very interested to see how everything unfolds. But then again even seems a little shady too especially after reading the short story.

Hmm. 500 tokens spent on Evon, for nothing. He can expect no sympathy from me, either.

Just be glad he didn’t increase them – to remake the funds he spent on the campaign.

plots to “remove” Kiel.

As amusing as the public outcry would be if Evon decided to increase the tax further I really don’t think that’d be wise from an actual gameplay design standpoint. Kicking your players in the balls is not a good long-term design solution.

It might be “in-character” but you try using that as an excuse. People hate tax increases in real life so I think that the reaction to it in-game would be twice as bad.

And this is without taking into account the number of people who did support Evon.

I was split vote. I like Ellen, but.. heck.. getting on the Pirate Council was only part of the deal. The other half was a trade agreement with the Zephyrites, which, hands down, Evon had more experience handling. Mind you, the goal of the BLTC does seem a little.. seperatist from the story of how he came to be in charge.
