Curious indeed, the few times i've been on lately, admittedly not that much, theres seems to be more players on than there has been for a long while, specifically the halloween bash, which was positively crowded...

Maybe it's the PK WIZMORTS driving away people like Reverence?

EH WOT?

I hate it when other players start disappearing. It's usually followed by the text "someone is about to attack you".

From the majority of posts it seems that most people dont really seem bothered about rev and drucilla leaving. But it seems a growing trend that long established players are feeling victimised and feel the only solution is to quit mud altogether. there is also a lack of diversity in the types of mud players around at the moment, with everyone seeming to be the typical plodder, unwilling to leave tearoom after making MU without a bunch of friends to walk around with. Now i dont have anything against this but if these are the only people on MUD is going to become very boring and uneventful, with all the PK's and high level players (however annoying to most) leaving. They add an extra dimension to the game, but with the wizards stamp down on any unfriendly activity MUD seems to be following into the trend of real life with over political correctness and a softly-softly approach to all aspects. This game is meant to be exciting with players not just helping but also competing against each other, but because theres always going to be a loser the wizards are imposing more rules and morals to try and make everyone happy, but the end result is forcing old players whos views differ to quit and creating mindless zombie newbies who copy the playing style of the tearoomers instead of experiencing the game and developing their own way of playing

I think that's a old of bs tbh

From having played again fairly solidly this week, I've noticed a distinct trend of pking about. I was attacked as a non-mu three times in three sets.

You don't have to pk to get points, and it's everyone's choice whether they want to plod or not isn't it? It might be boring for you but it's not just you playing the game. If they wanna sit in the tearoom and chat all set, so what? They paid for the game, they can do what they like with their time.

As for Dru going, my previous post shows my thoughts on that.

Renegade's post is just so full of incorrect and misinformed statements, it's funny

Eric - Exactly

Renegade - Don't know what game you're looking at, but it's not the game I've been lurking around in. If players want to leave, then it's up to them. No-one is forcing them to leave regardless of what they may say.

And erm, that's about it. :|

I ain't seen Halen around much lately, and i aint seen Eric and Seamus since wireplay shut, so how can you comment on the game when the rare times you do come on you either play as guest or in happy hour?

It's just the good ol' PK cycle. Estimates are that it takes about six months to go from PK-city to everyone playing nice. And then six months to go back again. At least, 'tis said. Nothing to get overly concerned about.

It may also be partly due to the gradual shift upward in numbers - more people, more competition for kit, and so more desire to PK.

Just because you haven't seen me doesn't mean I haven't been there... I've been playing this last month for instance. I've also been keeping up to date with stuff happening around here too.

Also, a list of people who have played recently reveals nobody called Renegade. I think someone needs to learn a certain phrase about pots, kettles and blackness...

Ive been playing.

Yeah... I didnt notice any pking really.

Apart from Po and some lowlives.


People always moan about pking but there's only ever 2 or 3 decent pks at the most at any time and right now there's probably none..

If you're bothered by the lame lowlife "OMG, I HAVE LS THUS I AMS HTE INVINCIB;LE!!!1" brigade... then in the words of the chuckle brothers.

"You sad little worm".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think anyone in this thread has complained about pk's, unless you count the original poster's comment about 'pk wizmorts'.

Is it me or does this thread make no sense whatsoever?

i was complaining about the attitudes of the wizards and tearoomers to PKing, and also about how people who are rarely on or if they are on rarely play who think they know what the situation is and negate other peoples arguments who have been on and who do play, therefore having more first hand experience of the issue in question

HAHAHAHA.

WIthout sounding too sarcastic mate, unless you can actually physically prove that the "people who don't play anymore" aren't actually playing anymore, keep stoom because you're just going to make yourself look stupid.

As for PK'ers - let them PK, I don't mind - I can live with them but I have only one thing to add to what I feel is a pointless debate:

If it is just wizard and tearoomer's attitudes to PK'ers that is annoying you, why don't you just forget about it, because it seems to me that you don't have an issue at all....

Unless this is actually what this post was made for in the first place??

Actually, he may be right though. On the low numbers playing these last couple of weeks. Just not on the reasons for it. (no, I don't know either...)
