Re: changing the topic/missing point/whatever we want to call it

If 1 topic is done why not post a new one to frame discussion? Just a suggestion.

As you can see, it's still a discussion inspired by (and about) trophies.

Also it's strange that THIS is the thread in which you're talking about making a new thread for off-topic content, when in the MXLU-XV thread we have a discussion on racism.  Rolling Eyes

The racism bit barely lasted beyond a single page and that thread is already beyond that topic.

So you're saying the topic of a thread can evolve over time? It's almost as if that's the point I was making  Smile 
At least I've stayed somewhat on topic Wink

Ahh, I didn't realize that was what you were saying. And yes, I would say that a topic can evolve over time. Though if there is to be serious discussion about something not related to the topic then it should be split off to a different topic (like how the melee sorc discussion go its own thread when it started in the XV thread). Here's how I roughly break it down in my head for if I think something should have its own thread or not, using this thread as an example.

1) Long ubers shouldn't have trophies - Natural progression of a thread as it is related to trophies.
2) Statement that we need more shorter ubers (or that not all new ubers should be long) - OT but doesn't need its own thread.
3) Discussion about the length of ubers - Should be moved to a new thread, but likely isn't to happen for various reasons.

And yes, even this post would fall into either #2 or 3.

On Topic - So yea, I don't mind trophies being at a 2% drop rate. My only concern is with longer fights having such a low drop rate and with there being too many trophies that it feels mandatory to farm some/most of them (this one is less of a concern in regards to the very short/easy fights which is where most of the trophies are currently anyways).
