Ready your timezone clocks, folks: MOP Black Desert columnist Carlo proposed this topic for the Daily Grind today. “I’m in Chicago right now, so I’m on CDT, usually PDT. Black Desert’s reset is at 5 p.m. PDT, 4 p.m. PST. But here in Chicago, it’s 7 p.m. CDT. I find it much more convenient because the MMO primetime out here is much later. So even though it’s 1 a.m. here, it’s 11 p.m. back home, meaning I’ve got more people doing stuff later. I just never realized how a two-hour difference in reset can change my day so much!” I’ve definitely played the timezone game before too, having lived in three timezones across the US and having several EU guildies to coordinate with. Usually I’d say the ideal reset – if there must be one at all – is whenever I’m asleep so I don’t have to think about it. But I’ve also found it convenient to have afternoon and evening resets so that I can time my dailies … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: When’s the ideal daily reset for an MMORPG?

On Wednesdays, we farm gems. In Trove, that is. That’s because ever since Trion revamped the daily login system, players get a daily bonus for doing a specific type of gameplay, with an even bigger bonus for subbers. It’s on a fixed weekly rotation, meaning every Monday is the same, every Tuesday, and so on. Wednesday is gems, so everybody in the game is farming gem boxes because they are just that important to character power. The bonuses are extremely generous, and objectively, I can say it’s a great system. Buuuuuut I find myself being mildly annoyed by the compulsion to go do that one thing, knowing I’d be missing out if I didn’t. Anybody remember old-school Ultima Online and power hour, when your skill gains were accelerated for the first hour you were logged in every day? It’s even worse than that because at least that was over after an hour and people could relax and go back to ganking miners or shuffling bags of regs around their houses. This … [Read more...] about The Daily Grind: Do you feel pressure to play MMOs for daily bonuses or experience events?
With all the talk of Defiance 2050, let’s not forget that Defiance is still live. More than that, it’s encouraging players to come take part in the Event Horizon… er, event, which will pit players against Syphon enemies. More than that, it’ll give 100% increases in experience, reputation, and score, which means that you’ll get more progress in less time than you would otherwise. But what’s that, it’s not going to matter with the relaunch? Sure it will; you’ll just want more Valor rewards, and those are also present in the event with lots of extra achievements to unlock. So jump in and start shooting to make some longer-term gains; the event runs until May 7th.
