    Dear Royallers,

    In light of some recent issues which caused downtime and some major inconveniences for many of our players, we have decided to offer periods of 2x Exp and Drop over this coming weekend.

    There will be a total of 4 periods of 2x exp and drop. We have chosen times which we feel should give most players a chance of being able to participate in one of the 2x Exp and Drop periods for each day. The 2x Exp and Drop will start and end at the times specified below:

    Saturday 4th June 2016
    03:00-06:00 Server Time (GMT+1)
    14:00-17:00 Server Time (GMT+1)

    Sunday 5th June 2016
    03:00-06:00 Server Time (GMT+1)
    14:00-17:00 Server Time (GMT+1)

    Server time and date can be found on the MapleRoyals home page, the forum's main page (default theme), and in game by typing "~servertime".

    Long overdue....F3.

    Nonetheless, its a good move for players to be compensated in this kind of well deserved manner.

    If you read the post you should have realised that we are doing this as a compromise to the significant number of players that were affected by some major issues that occurred last week. We are not doing this to make things easy.

    I think everyone should be given 4-6 2x exp and drop coupons so that everyone gets to use it when most convenient to them. Also that will help stop from overcrowding areas and rushes everyone. I work overtime this Saturday and Sunday and won't be able to experience it due to the short notice (can't ask for vacation time unless 1 week prior)... if you could give this some thought that would be awesome!

    I think this is a great idea as well since I won't be able to log on this weekend at all due to moving :(

    We did consider the use of coupons, however it would require quite a bit of coding, and would also involve the use of timers which is something we are trying to avoid until the new source as they can often bug out and cause major problems.

    The exp/drop events over this weekend will be started and ended manually by GM's in game at the time for the same reason.

    @morf3000 I believe PQ's do get affected by the 2x exp/drop.

    So does that mean it's completely ruled out? id rather get half of the time of this weekend another time then nothing at all.

    If it got enough support/ donations to fund the coding could we make the coupons happen?

    Yes, we won't be giving coupons due to the possible timer issues as mentioned.

    What if we got donations to fix the issue? What amount would be needed to fix the coding?

    Money isn't going to solve the issue.

    The legendary myth of the new source. Could it possibly be coming? :o

    It's not about money. The work involved to remove the user of Java's timer manager and use a system like what the new source uses would take many weeks to implement as it would require re-writing a huge portion of this terrible source code. Time much better spent polishing up the almost-finished new source.

    I did read the post, and instead of making 8x exp and 4x drop you can just think about another compromise..

    You could do double coupons instead once the new source is released :)
