There has been discussion for some time now on the subject of is Mortal Online Pay 2 Win. Well I think that is down to every individual to decide however I will bring something to your attention.
There is currently a Keep in the game that has almost double the health points of any other keep. It stands with 26 million hp where as any other keep has 16 million or similar. The reason every other keep has the same hp is because when you build a keep in game, no matter what materials you use the keep will end up with the same health. This means that every keep across the game is on the same level.
There used to be methods to raise the health of a keep through better materials or 'passive' building. Both of these mechanics were taken out of the game years ago as they allowed players to gain an advantage over others and for balance issues.
The Keep in game with 26 million hp belongs to a guild called The Guttersnipes, whos leader is Diphrael. This keep has a long past. Over the last year it has belonged to several guilds. A single player called Electrum owned the keep. When he owned it the keep had 16 million hp and the systems to gain any more were already out of the game. The keep was blown up. DC owned it after this and the taxes ran out, so it was destroyed. It was then rebuilt by GM's and given to an old DC member. Quad took control of the keep spot after this. Still the keep was 16 million hp. Quad then sold the Keep to The Guttersnipes. Somewhere between the point of sale and now the keep gained 10 million hp somehow.
Now then, this could just be some bug or mistake, which is what I first thought. However after I brought this to the attention of the GM and support team this was their response -
I would like to bring your attention to the Guttersnipes Keep. For some reason it has 10 Million more hp than any other keep in the game. When this keep was sold from Quad to Guttersnipes it had exactly the same as any other keep - 16 mil hp.
Somehow, this managed to turn into 26 Million hp. There is no possible in game way to make this happen. Material no longer matters when it comes to the hp of a keep and you have not been able to passive build for around 2 year.
I am sure this is a mistake. Can it please be reverted to the same HP as every other keep in the game?
Customer Support -
This keep has already been discussed with the Lead Game Master (Discord). The hit points will remain cause it was built when you could auto build and get more hit points than by building it by hand. We will not discuss this issue anymore our decision has been made.
The problem is as I have stated and your logs will clearly show, this keep was built over a year after auto build was taken out of the game. When it was built it had 16 million hp. It was then sold to the guttersniped by Quad. It was not rebuilt or amended yet it gained 10 million hp somehow. Sorry but your explination does not make any sense.
Customer support -
I told you the issue was brought to us to late for us to get the logs, to verify anything so we decided we will not interfere and it will remain at what it is.
Ok, So putting the rude and unproffesional attitude of the support staff aside, they quite obviously do not want to amend this problem. I would like to point out that I had one of my towers rebuilt by a GM once, due to it blowing up thanks to a bug. The GM replaced it with too many hit points. Later that same week it was reverted back to normal HP. Why can this not be done for the keep in question?
Anyway, Why am I bringing the question of is Mortal Pay to Win into this?
Diphrael, Leader of Guts, Owner of the Keep. Top 5 Donator of all time. I guess money does get you some privillages.
