  1. bmoc55 : A scamming alt

    Over and over I keep seeing "thats not how you help a guildie" For the record..... he was given for FREE items and gear. he was loaned higher lvl weapons and gear and when they broke it was a case of "oh well". he had help on quests, things like "i need 1k rubies and i dont have the nexus" so we gave him the rubies..or i can't kill this mob for novak and BB knocked the mob down so bmoc could kill it. he was GIVEN gc. I myself ran errands to the npcs for him because he was anti at the time...I asked for no recompense other than what the npc was asking. He was in MOB for less than a month and in that time he asked for (and was given) a lot.... he gave NOTHING in return. So enough with all the "thats not how you help a guildie" stuff, we did help him. I've also seen some of you ragging on our guild tag. Would your attitudes be different if we called ourselves BL (bunny lovers...we harv for carrots)? Ask yourselves this... how many members of MOB have been in the disputes forum for bjing? for scamming? for dishonorable pk? for general rule breaking? Please base your arguements on logic and not on some prejudice over our guild tag or our very warped sense of humour.

    Should BB have asked bmoc for the extra 20k interest on the loan? dont know... the fact is that bmoc did agree to it... and has since refused to pay back the original 50k or make any attempt at repayment....the arguement about the cutty should tell you something...bmoc wants it back even tho BB paid for it...and i know this because i was there when the original transaction happened. so on one hand u have a person who bought a cutty for 40k and lent the other person 50k with serious interest...on the other hand u have a person who refuses to repay the original loan with or without interest and demands the return of an item they sold and when questioned about repayment quit the guild... think hard ppl...you'll see who the scammer truly is even if u dispute the 20k in interest how can u justify not repaying the 50k principal?
  4. GC Buying & Selling

    As far as I'm concerned the issue should be what's best for EL. What's best for EL is having Ent making a living from it. If he can't then we are all screwed out of a darn good game. Having said that, the one and only person who should have the right to sell gc is Ent...all others should be banned. Would it piss me off if some newbie bought millions of gc and used it to level themselves? Yes it would. Would it piss me off to the point that I'd quit EL? No. GC buying isn't even necessary. You could just as easily get a bot and load it with shop bought items. Ent gets paid and we get free EL.
  5. The RPing in MMORPGs

    I voted very important....its the geek/nerd in me. There are so many half finished stories in EL. Makes me crazy. What are those pirates doing??? What is it with the satellite??? What happened in Tirnym? (Why is everyone who does the past quest seem to be an engineer from a space ship???)etc etc. While I know the official writers of EL have written background stories, it would be nice if they were implemented in the game. As far as having the npcs move, I love the idea. I'd even enjoy it if they randomly said things...ie if you're passing past an npc that sells books or items they can hawk their wares, some could be very pleasant while others could be mildly insulting. EL can only benefit from having a richer "history". More quests would be great too, they give people a reason to go to maps they would not normally choose to go to.
  6. In the 1920's "the establishment" were upset by the flappers...not only did these wanton women show their ankles they showed their knees!!! In the 1950's comic books were considered harmful to young minds and all sorts of censorship had to be used just so that little Timmy can't see a picture of a zombie oozing slime. In the 1950's Rock and Roll was the 'devil's music" and listening to it would cause innocent little white girls to go out and have sex with nefarious teenage boys. (OMG did you see that Elvis Presley on Sullivan last night??? He moved his hips in SUCH a suggestive manner!) In the 1960's the hippies scared the bejezus out of everyone over 30. In the 1970's Dungeons and Dragons was largely seen by the public as a gateway to mental illness. I am not joking. When my parents found out that every Saturday I was a half-elf fighter/magic user, I was given a long lecture on the evils of D&D and they told me how worried they were for my sanity. In the 1980's the world despaired over rap music (which I think totally sucks but thats just a matter of personal taste). The point of all this is simple... every single generation engages in an activity or behaviour that upsets the hell out of their elders. Our parents did things that upset their parents who upset their parents etc etc etc. Each and every time one of these major cultural shifts occur the establishment has a knee-jerk reaction to try and stop this change. This is human nature and won't be changing any time soon. So we will do what we always do when we are told we CAN'T do something... we will do it anyway...just secretly. Censorship and prohibition of any kind always fails.
  7. Custom Clothing

    I voted "no what is custom clothing".... I know what it is...I just haven't seen any (I don't have the client and didn't know there was one.) From what I've read in this thread tho I heartily agree that custom clothes should be given a thumbs up from the mods and devs before being allowed ingame.
  8. KF o:

    I'm not a pker..never have been and never will be, so what happens in KF doesn't effect me at all. Having said that, I do miss the free mercury. If some of the pkers are annoyed at the ND aspect of pking in KF then maybe they should start hosting pk contests in KF or simply challenge other pkers to meet them on some other pk map. Or they could even go to the pk server. There are plenty of options to avoid the whole ND fracas that do not include changing the game.
  9. Ok enuff said... the mods don't like the idea
  10. No. Mods are still players like everyone else with some additional duties. I wouldn't like to be some ubbersized gnome btw. Ooooooo mega garden gnomes!!! I want one I want one now!!! Actually if the mods don't like the idea of being visibly different how bout just changing the colour of their text chat... ie when a mod types in local or in a channel their text would be orange or green or whatever...just something to distinguish it from the non mods.
  11. Very well written and lots of fun to read...more please!!!
  12. Spikeyaya did say ONE thing that kinda makes sense.... there should be a way to distinguish mods from the regular players... make them tall or something...give them halos....whatever works. People coming from other games will then recognize a mod when they see them and personally the idea of 12 foot tall mods makes me all tingly
  13. Adopt a newbie program

    I'd be willing to mentor altho I'm still considered a newb myself (after 1 and 1/2 yrs). I'd like to make another suggestion to go with the adopt a newb program (for which I am probably going to get flamed)... start enforcing rules #2 and 3. I've gotten a few ppl to try EL and each and every one quit within a week because of being abused in channels 1 and 4 and in local for being "stupid noobs". People who have been playing this game for a long time or have a high a/d seem to think this game is just for them and are frequently nasty to newer players. Newbies are going to ask questions and they are going to break game protocol/etiquette...so instead of allowing the rampant flaming why not insist ppl just try to be courteous and polite human beings for a change?
  14. Manufacturing strike!

    Huge thread...but useful for killing time while harving. Seems to me the biggest issue is who thinks they have the most right to make gc in this game.... harvers,mixers(I mean all makeable items), and fighters. So here are my suggestions for what they're worth. 1) monsters no longer drop makeable or harvestable items (including stones) but gc drop is increased 2)make the pk areas around rare metal sites no drop zones (if the pkers dont have to lose their stuff why should the harvers?) 3)increase the xp level for higher level items 4) this is the one I'll prob get flamed for..... radu sets a base price for each and every item in the game...everything that can be harvested,made or found in a drop. ie nothing can be sold for less than x amount of gc and at the same time sets it so that no one can make more than a reasonable profit (ie 15%)..people can still make a profit and no one will get gouged.
  15. Reputation

    I know a reputation is a subjective thing... but so are all the replies to every dispute. There has to be a better way of doing things rather than a complainant posting and everyone else flaming them. As to time not being an indicator of reputation? Think about it... if a player spends hundreds of hours not doing things to get in trouble with the mods and not getting reported in the dispute threads then obviously the must have a good reputation and therefore are more believable when they make a complaint as opposed to someone who doesn't. Its kind of like the system would act as a character witness. I'm not suggesting that any reputation system would have any ingame effect or benefits except those that having a good reputation would have anyway. (btw if u as a thread moderator think this subject is such a waste of your time and other peoples times then why don't u just delete it instead of publically insulting me)
