It's a weird line to draw in the sand if you're using an unclassic client to begin with.

Maybe they find martyrdom strategically important.

Shared bank would sorta replicate the fact even I (a dirty filthy casual) had 2 accounts to access virtually whenever i wished to swap stuff.
No 2 boxing here (cough) so it would, as peeps mentioned not take too much away from classic and release gms to do uva better stuff.

Using a second box (usually a 50's drood) i would just use it to defo stop a death from a case of the stoopid or rng.
Swapping stuff was just the bonus.

And i know, i was using 2boxing wrong... fucken noob.

Raiders all have an IP exemption so they can /q and instant login, it's silliness, Dalaya got this right years ago.

One of the devs said years ago they can do non-classic stuff as they see fit.
And when you are 66% of a year behind on volunteer work this can be one of those things.

The last time I checked, which was years ago, they were 6 months behind on IR requests.

And years before that I waited approximately 3 months to get handfuls of spells and mage stuff restored. All these anecdotes are possible proof of the need for shared bank slots.

I don't think they want efficiency. Effort is a useful cudgel to wield against the playerbase.

Yesterday, after practicing shurikens on my wizard, i accidentally autoequipped my Idol of the Underking on to the ground and it rot before I realised. Out of solidarity for the staff (and players with legit serious claims) I resisted creating a reimbursement petition.

I don't think drop transfers cost the GMs any time at all. My understanding is they don't reimburse for lost items due to a drop transfer gone wrong.

They do reimburse drop transfers. As long as no one else picked it up and it rotted

The description of the workflow for this makes me twitch. This should really be a script that the GM reviews and selects yes or no for each reimbursement and then it just automatically does everything directly on the DB/logging systems to restore the items directly from outside the game.

Dev time is precious though, and I'm sure there's complications building that in a secure and reliable way. But damn, that workflow just hurts so bad to read.

I'm a professional UX developer who has offered to code something better up for them in the past.

They never took me up on the offer, so we can only assume they are happy with their current tooling.
