I read somewhere, in Aion online that they have this penalty for staying online for more then 3 hours. After the three hours, your experience points earned goes down overtime. Every 10 minutes, you earn 10% less exp, and is capped at 60% less experience points earned. You logged out for a hour, and the time would reset. So you couldn't log out at 2 hours, 50 minutes, and relog to reset the timer, you would have to wait a hour to reset the 3 hour time limit.
On the other hand, if your logged out for more then three hours, for a hour, you gain an extra 50% experience points. I'm not sure if this is right or not, I just read it on the BG forum and forgot who said it. Anyone like this idea at all?
And there is a patch that can be easily downloaded and installed to circumvent this.
There was also a patch to change the Chinese UI to an English UI. Actually, most popular games have patches like this.
And with other software (if your country's IP is blocked) you can play the game in other countries, with an English interface, for as long as you want.
The reason I say this is just to make the point that even if any MMORPG had some sort of time limit restrictions, someone...somewhere...would quickly create a way to get around it.
Toasting makes me uncomfortable. But toast I love. Never start the day without a good piece of toast. In fact, let's toast to toast.
