Pretty much avatars have no purpose on a PvE/PvC server unlike the fact they would have a purpose on PvP servers also I only speak of Official servers. This will cause a huge amount of lag because of massive summonings and thralls already congest the servers as is with out the feeding system in place anymore and with out the feeding system I believe capping thralls at 50 is fair. Possibly 30 seems doable for a purge. Honestly I am more concerned with the over sight with every thing being implemented and removal from the game.
Example food system to feed thralls was fine only complaint was people didn’t want to feed the pets because of lazy behaviour, personally I have to much food that its it’s going to waste. Now thralls take 15 days to die, no limit to how many a single person can have. So Funcom you remove this, mistake number 1, instead of a removal you could have adjusted this to become a server setting option, and make some offical servers have the feed system still active this would be the obvious most picked servers. This also would have prevented a lot of bugs, and just over sight.
Now I can’t have pets hold food because it turned in to a 1 hour attack buff while this is great no defensive buff was give, no precautions to prevent thrall from just taking all food and only giving 1 hour buffing instead of stacking or consuming 1 food every hour.
All I ask is think before acting and I believe that a lot of problems such as bugs and glitches and all other aspects can be avoided, server setting option should be the route you take more when removing anything to keep it as a option. That and you do much better programming with server settings than you do other aspects, it’s a suggestion and I hope to see great additions in the future.
