Death Plane Frequent Flyer Miles?

PostAuthor: Pip Garthyk » Mon Apr 05, 2010 4:54 pm

This Topic: Game Crashing on Dplane
Got me to thinking... how often do your characters end up on the Death Plane?

Is it something that happens at least once a week to you? Once a month? Once per login?

I know that my main character has spent some time on the Death Plane (about 10 times, I think, over 16 levels) and my alternate has never gone to the Death Plane (0 times over 6 levels).

What about the rest of you? Would you be able to upgrade to the Death Plane Business Class by now? Or would you be upgraded to Death Plane 1st Class with Complementary Round Trip Tickets at this point?

About how many times have your characters been sent to the Death Plane, and over how many levels?

Grace hasn't been deathplaned in a long time, used to happen a lot more frequently.
A knocked down mage is often a dead mage.

My alts, often enough to cry while watching the count down from -1 to -9. :)

When I played Samwir I usually died 5-15 times a week until I got above level 15-16'ish, I don't play him that often anymore, but I have died two times this past month with him.

With Tomas I tried to challenge myself to die as little as possible, he has died a grand total of 26 times, only once after reaching level 20.

EDIT: After speaking with Grunt who is the master of numbers, I have edited my post a bit. ;)

For a while I spent more time on DP than in the rest of game. I died upwards of 10 times a day, usually averaging about twice and hour. Lots of these were knockdown, bleeding, and whatever it was didn't stop attacking until DP.

I don't DP often with Fletcher, 18 times up to level 35, first 2 were at level 8... last one was 12/27/2009 at the hands of Belasco I think.

Never done the death run with him, always recovered from bleeding or got a res. The joy of traveling with friends :)

After a while Hebrin just got too tough to kill easily. That and clone. But 192 is respectable

I can't believe Morran got more than Gracie.
I guess he was always trying to save her butt from certain death.

If Miette had 326 deaths, I bet she caused about the same.

It would be interesting to see the least DPs in a list too, although maybe then you would have to do it in level ranges, 30-35, 36-40 etc.

I'd just have to take the highest HD for the character and then could even do a DP/level thing...hmm...

Did I mention I'm getting paid for this right now? I am. Not by Avlis, but...

And bearing in mind Silver's existed from about April '08 onwards, and that list goes back to '05...

Awesome list, Grunt. Now, do it with Deaths/Hours played. :glaskugel: ;)

I'm a bit surprised that Sinomi isn't up there.

Honestly I'm shocked Sher's that low on the list. I still vote for 'epic bardic death' as a bard feat. The spectacular music and gentle lighting are a must at moments like those for every performer. And makeup. Very good makeup.

This is also since 2005 remember, so my sample data is not complete. Sinomi was playing back in 04 so he may have flopped a bunch back then.

Deaths/hours played... well, we don't record how long you've been on. That's up to your mom.

I might be able to XP per death, to show how much XP you gain before dying on average. Crafting and Freebie XP would be rolled in so it won't be quite as accurate, unless the freebie XP is stored in pwdata maybe...

...this is starting to sound like work. Hmmm... I don't like that. :D

I'll think more on a formula. Using just levels doesn't work so well because of the curve of time someone would be playing between say level 35 and level 40. Then you have level 40s who have been around a few years gaining xp... then you have people like Ed who had a ton of XP and blew some on artificing and got some back... too few fields to choose from, affected in too many ways by other factors. I'd be ashamed to call it accurate.
