    Suggestions that might help

    Heya! I'll address your points one by one Dynamic MMR - to clarify, dynamic MMR is the one where your rank decays if you don't play, or is it the one where people of different MMR can queue together and... magic happens? Starting rating - I agree it'd be beneficial to have rating start higher. Maybe not as high as 1500, but something close to 1000 (lower or higher or exactly 1000) would be pretty alright. BG and arena queue announcer for sure, it's easy to implement. If we have enough BGs going on, that'll be disabled but the arena one is definitely a plus (unless we have like 30 teams queuing at the same time lols) 3v3 Incentives - I did mention someone in one of my posts (Reddit perhaps?) that we're planning on adding systems not present in "vanilla" Wrath of the Lich King, and adding incentives for PvP (especially arenas) is one of them. PvP (and especially arena) was pretty much a second-class citizen compared to other parts of the game during WOTLK, partly because it was still in its rather early stages. The PVE rewards in WOTLK are vastly better and worth working for than what PVP has to offer. I have plans to implement some manner of rewards system that would be updated each season to stay fresh. Luckily, Omega Season one starts around mid-February, so there's still time to cement the ideas I've been throwing around. I had a similar system planned and introduced late into Omega 2.0's life cycle, and there's good ideas to re-use from there. GENERAL SERVER PROMOTION Videos - They're coming. More info on that soon. Armory and ladders - Hasn't been discussed yet as we've been focusing on bigger fish, but it shouldn't be too hard to implement. It's worth mentioning it might take longer to implement if we want to have both those features working nice and smooth, lacking the usual bugs they usually sport. Anti-cheating and anti-scripting protection - We've got protection stuff, but it's worth noting no matter how many layers of Wardens or Cortanas you have in place, there's always going to be some stupid hack that bypasses them. WOTLK is ten years old, and with its age come flaws in its code. I think we'll be just fine with what we've currently got installed, but if you ever think someone is cheating, remember to take lots of screenshots and have timestamped chat boxes! And yeah, I think the rates are good. Here's the reasoning behind each: 3X XP - WOTLK is 10 years old, people are sick of leveling through the same stuff all the time. 3X seems balanced enough that leveling is fast but not too fast. That and the option of double XP through Recruit-a-Friend should give players who want to level even faster an alternative option (as long as they can find a friend!) 2X Rep - Honestly, even 1X rep is fast enough for me, personally. However, it's once again content people have done for 10 years. While 3X is excessive, 2X should land in that sweet spot where you have to work for it, but not to the level of stupid increments that WOD/Legion/BFA has with their world quest-based reputation. 2X Honor - Honor at 1x is fine. Honor at 3X is too much, and people have to much of it to spare there's zillions of epic gems available once they hit the vendors. 2X seems alright in terms of not forcing you to go through more battlegrounds than you have to in order to get geared up. 3X WORLD DROP (chance, not amount) - We had 3X drop to the amount, and it was overly sufficient to say the least. It yielded more gold (which made the economy a bit wonkier than it should) and it made everyone take more tiring trips to vendor their full bags. This time around we decided to set the drop amount to the usual 1x, but increase the chances of items dropping. So, a Damaged Necklace or Book of Glyph Mastery has, say, a 1% chance to drop. With triple the drop rate, it now has a 3% chance to drop. Same goes for BOE rares and epics. Makes grinding out in the world feel better without showering the player with trash.

    || How To: Doing an IP Trace ||

    Sometimes people experience bad connections or drop-outs from the game or other "nasty" connection problems. This is rather annoying but also normal. When you play an online game, the server and client ( your computer ) communicate with each other trough different hubs. So when 1 hub is bad, that can result in big latency and/or disconnects. Before saying/posting in Support section on the forum :" OMG I HAVE BAD LAGAAGAGAGGGGGGG " and such topics, do an IP trace from your computer to our server. Here is an easy guide on how to accomplish that: [Windows XP] 1. Click the Start menu and then Run 2. Type in cmd then press Enter 3. Type the following into the Command Window that appears: tracert logon.omegawow.eu > C:\trace.txt and press Enter. [ If using Windows Vista or Windows 7 ] 1. Click Start and type cmd in the Search/Run field 2. The search should find a program called cmd.exe 3. Right-click on the cmd.exe program and left-click on Run as administrator 4. Type the following into the Command Window that appears: tracert logon.omegawow.eu > C:\trace.txt and press Enter. Please note that you must have administrator privileges on your 😄 drive in order to create this file. 5. A file will be created on your local drive (C called tracert.txt which will contain the trace route information. Please allow your computer 2-3 minutes to create the tracert.txt file before opening or moving the file. [ How to create a trace route on Mac OSX] 1. Open the Finder, choose Applications and then Utilities 2. Run the Terminal program 3. In the Terminal window type traceroute logon.omegawow.eu > ~/Desktop/tracert.txt and press Enter. 4. A file will be created on your desktop called tracert.txt which will contain the trace route information. Please allow your computer 2-3 minutes to create the tracert.txt file before opening or moving the file. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Post the results in the topic you make to discuss your issue.

    || Frequently Asked Questions ||

    1. I can't login, help! First be sure you check this topic: (LLINKINK TO DIFFERENT TOPIC FOCUED ON LOGIN ISSUES) 2. I get "Your account has been Temporarily Suspended/Perma suspended" This means that you have been banned. Log on http://logon.omegawow.eu/trinity/omegapanel/ , where you will see the reason you have been banned. If you believe your ban is unfair, feel free to post an appeal in the 'Ban Appeal' section of the forum. Please read how to do so properly before you post. (Note: If you have been banned by Warden, there is no way to appeal your ban.) 3. I can't login on my character, it says that the account is not valid You must remember if you don't log in on your account from time to time, it could get deleted (after 3 months of inactivity your account gets automatically deleted) 4. How i can get my account back if it was deleted? There is no way to get your account back if it was automatically deleted by the server. 5. I got scammed! OmegaWoW doesn't support account trading, having other people donate for you etc. thus you will not get any help if you are victim of scamming, your account & stuff are your responsibility. 6. My little brother used SOME CHEAT THAT I DON'T EVEN KNOW PLEASE UNBAN. Check point 2. 7. Is the server down? Check this page (link), on the right side under the 'server stats' bar, if the uptime stats show '0 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes' then the server either crashed or is under maintenance. It should be back up soon. If the server does not restart itself in a matter of minutes, check the forum for more information. 8. I forgot my password! Go on this page (link) and write in your details. An e-mail with a new password will be send to your e-mail address. 9. I didn't use my e-mail when creating my account/I forgot my e-mail password/name! Then there is nothing we can do for you. 10. I'm trying to log in but when I do it keeps trying to update the game! You must log in with your account name, not your account e-mail.
  7. OmegaWoW In-Game Code of Conduct Introduction The rules that you will find below, are intended to give you a good idea of things that are NOT allowed on OmegaWoW. This means that some rules may refer to a situation that may cover a wider range than elaborated in this topic. If something is not mentioned in the rules, this does not mean you can not be penalized for it. There will be situations that are yet unforeseen and these will be judged when they come up. Please read all the rules and check on them once in a while, as they get updated from time to time. General The use of any kind of hack, such as, but not limited to, speed-hacks, wall-hacks and fly-hacks, will result in a permanent banishment from the OmegaWoW Game Server on both your IP address and your account(s). Modifying your client with third party programs and/or injecting them is against the rules, this also means dbc editing and model editing and using programs to change behavior and/or looks of the client. Basically, running a clean WoW installation without any modifications is the safest option. When you encounter a server bug and exploit this bug rather than reporting it, you risk a punishment which is up to the Gamemaster that catches you. Making false reports on our ticket system or forum to get another person muted or banned will be followed by a permanent ban from our server. We will not tolerate this kind of childish behaviour. Side Note: Any punishment that can be applied to an IP address as well, are applied to an IP address and not only to a character or an account. This means that if you share your IP address with other people, for instance when you live in the same house with someone else who plays on OmegaWoW or when you play at a local internet cafe, you risk getting your accounts closed as well when another person on the same IP address gets banned. Therefore, we strongly advise never to share your IP address with other people, but if that is simply not possible then be very sure you can trust those other people with your IP address. Either way, in case of a permanent ban you can never use the excuse that it was someone else on your IP address who violated the rules, period! There are people from all over the world playing on OmegaWoW, different nationalities and languages flow through our community. Therefore, we only allow English to be spoken on the public channels, such as the world channel, the general zone channel, the trade channel in capital cities and the looking for group channel. Respect your fellow community members, never use vulgar or offensive language. Furthermore, any kind of racism or insults to one's religion, sexuality or culture is strictly forbidden. PvP Win trading in arena is highly forbidden. When noticed (we got records of all matches) every account related to the win trading will get permanently banned. No discussion possible! Using any kind of third program in Player versus Player situations is not allowed, meaning that it is forbidden to use programs such as key-pressers or programs which allow you to keep doing something while away from the keyboard, such as healing friendly targets. If you find a certain action, such as a spell or talent, or an item's use effect which is bugged that could lead to an unfair advantage for the user, it is very wise to report this on the forum rather than exploiting this bug to one's personal advantage. Not knowing about bugs/exploits is no excuse. OmegaWoW is based on a PvP environment and therefore breaking the rules mentioned above can lead up to a banishment from our Game Server on both your IP address and account(s) (NEEDS CONFIRMATION SERVER IS WORLD PVP ENABLED). Chat Use only English when talking in the Official Chat Channels - General, Trade Chat, Local Defense, World Chat. As already mentioned, we are multinational community. Using any other language in those channels may lead to mute/ban of your account(s) for certain time or permanent (Depending on situation). It is forbidden to advertise account or donation trading on any public/private chat.(Messages like "WTS/WTB donation" and "WTT/WTB/WTS character/account"). If you get scammed with this action, you will not receive any support from the staff in retrieving the account. We do not / will not support account trading; Using macros, 3rd party programs, add-ons, or anything else to create flood or to produce different colors in the following chat types is forbidden: /say, /yell, /party, /raid, /bg and all the official channels: world, general, trade, etc.It is misleading, annoying and could potentially lead to impersonating a Gamemaster (highly forbidden); It is also forbidden to use colors in guild names. It's forbidden to make the so called "Anal Jokes" on Official Chat Channels in-game. Official Chat Channels are: General, Trade Chat, Local Defense,World Chat. "Anal Jokes" are saying anal and linking spells, items or talents that "fit well" with it. Example: "Anal [Stomp]" or "Anal [Charge]; Using foul and rude language, cursing is forbidden in the Official Chat Channels. Remember this is a public place. Behave appropriately; Double posting (flooding), spamming is not allowed on the World Chat, Trade Chat and General Chat Channels; Excessive cursing versus other players (including donor bashing, racist remarks and real life threats) is highly forbidden and will result in long (if not permanent) bans when reported. It is forbidden to kick / mute / ban players while having "Owner" or "Moderator" status on Official Channels. It is also forbidden to password-protect the official channels while having that same status. Excessive use of Caps in global channels is not allowed. Typing or using macros to create ASCII Art "pictures" in Official Chat Channels, is not allowed. Approaching Gamemasters Always make sure your tickets contain a detailed description of your problem. Always ask around on the public channels first to see if other community members have a solution or answer to your problem. In case of a bugged quest, spell/talent, NPC or item, file a detailed report on the issue tracker following guidelines. Gamemasters will not instantly attempt to fix the bugs because some bugs cannot be fixed in-game. If a ticket contains no details, but instead it contains things like, but not limited to, "HALP!", "Need to talk to GM", they may be deleted without answers. Show respect towards the Gamemasters, they spend their free time in the best interest of OmegaWoW. Never bother a Gamemaster if he is playing on his own characters, Gamemasters are only there to offer their help when they are on their Gamemaster character. A Gamemaster's presence on the forums does not imply that he is in-game and it most certainly does not mean that he will instantly log in to help you. Be patient and/or go play another character with an open ticket until there is a Gamemaster available. Do not start sending PMs randomly/massively to Gamemasters and Administrators that you see online on the forums. You are not allowed to ask a GM for any of the following things: Levels (also for professions) Items Teleportation Money Talent Points Server crash/restart Kick from the server Fixes The following actions will also result in punishment, possibly a permanent ban: Making the server crash on purpose, whether it's done by a bugged quest, NPC interaction or a third party program; Advertising for other websites and servers with the intention to lure people away from OmegaWoW, but keep in mind that this is a very thin line. It is best to think about it for a while, before saying something about another server; Offensive character names. Up to the Gamemaster to judge the offensiveness of the name. (This rule has a 1 time warning system, we allow you one chance to change your character name in something not disturbing/offensive, if we continue to see inappropriate character names on the account, the account will get closed. No discussion possible, of course); Offensive guild names. (this may vary from things like 'WaffenSS' to 'Double Penetration'). Offensive guild names will be punished by disbanding of the guild and thus the loss of the guild bank (including items); Being offensive towards other players (Now don't report someone for every little insult someone made, we mean threatening/really bad insults); Its highly forbidden to sell characters/items/gold from our server for real money, if we get a report of it, we will ban the account(s) involved in this case; It is not in your best interests to be disrespectful to the staff in any capacity. Whether it can be directly to the Staff Member or to friend(s), do not be disrespectful to a Staff Member. If you have a huge urge to flame about a Staff Member, that is fine, but not on the server (Ventrilo/anything that has to do with the server included). Use your own MSN/Skype/whatever else you want to flame about us to other people; And last but definitely not least: Use common sense. Regards, The OmegaWoW Staff.
