Why have there been no diplomatic or consistently active roleplay posts for a while? All I see are Applications, and Off-topic threads. I am of course very disappointed with the new conflict and villainy rules, It just shows the incapability of nations to defend themselves (which in a medieval fantasy roleplay server is illogical) as nation defenses should be a priority, logically. I don't think we need to add more red-tape to rules to drive away the current bandits that bring up good roleplay. It's really disappointing, and I am glad I haven't returned yet. We have already talked about removing red-tape yet player & staff communication is apparently being ignored again. Why do I need to modreq and wait 20 minutes for a staff member that magically logged on coincidentally to give me the approval for a 3+ man or whatever conflict fight? This server is more OOC based than IC now, and it's really disappointing.
Let's further more complicate CRP by adding a statistics system for everything such as projectiles, melee, armour, etc. This is just not the way to fix anything, further adds red tape and complications, and drifts people away from conflict. I literally got bored reading this halfway through, and yet you expect the whole player base that is already used to honor CRP and PvP to choose this? It's literally the same as ThroneCraft (TC), and imagine who our owner is.
It's going to cause an out lash of toxicity more than CRP & PvP combined, and no one is ready (except a few weirdos that like to spend 10 minutes looking over the stats guide) to keep looking over the thread trying to see which rule applies and which rule does not apply. This will cause more havoc, chaos, toxicity, modreqs, and will eventually add to Administration having to interfere in a case like this.
Unlock the thread, and see how people reply to it. Remove toxic comments, sure, but respond or actually consider any constructive or less friendly criticism at the very least, the server needs it, and I don't care if you were a TC administrator to just accept a horrible system like this to a population that doesn't understand it. That's like giving children cookies everyday for a year and then suddenly giving them a weird-looking piece of candy that looks obnoxious.
P.S: I simply don't care as this has yet to be implemented, yet such a guide thread should be maintained as unlocked (as all other player' guides are) to receive constructive criticism about this system instead of trying to silence us all through nothing but locking a thread that a minority of the player base cares about.
I would honestly say that locking a thread just because you won't be able to respond back to counter-comments is honestly a cowardice move. It just shows that you can't defend yourself because you aren't as great as people deem you to be. Rumpo has 'quit' the server due to this. The staff are only downgrading and there are 3-6 higher ups (Mod-Management, and Adminstrators combined) left; Angielulu, Brokenhelix, skippy369, cowmoonist, Pyrias. I would mention more but I would not deem them as perfect. Frill has done nothing wrong except being sassy in all his posts. It was not aggressive nor toxic. It was not harming an underaged person at all. This is just lies, I don't find this harming at all. If this was directed towards me, I would listen to him and do what he told me to do.
