AT LEAST READ BEFORE RAIDING
There stands two choices in front of us at this instance.
Surviving as a community and getting passed the annoyances and the hate.
Or going down with this game
This game has been up for what? 2 years? and it's survived this long this strong? it's rather amazing, and frankly rough seeing it starting to sink down like a ship full of bullet holes.
The forum has been a roller coaster of calm good ideas and trolling/old post bumping, and many people's conclusion is that to make anyone of us admin would be a good idea, but in reality it isn't and I only see it further leading to our demise. Further more the player base is slowly dwindling and we find ourselves at a point to where the game could possibly just become forgotten and dead.
You'd think a game that used to be a bunch of people with friendships, rivalries, and hell, overcoming a steep learning curve would stay up and be the same, every time going into the game you used to be able to see familiar names all the time and see a community that was just having a lot of damn fun when we all stood on lower ground. (because archers stay on the high ground)
It's gone . . just about. And it's a rarity to see decent people in the US server, though some exceptions. But the point is we've come to a point to where wilds is going to fall or rise. And it's entirely up to us, and rezoner (when he comes back). I first off understand Rezoner has dreams and other games to tend and he has a family but atleast skimming over the problems and fixing a thing or two or atleast putting input in it to ease us wouldn't hurt, and wouldn't take that long.
And finally it's also up to the community to see the bigger picture, that this game has updated a lot and they need to keep trying to keep this game going. Rezoner can't do everything and us as players it's our duty to voice our oppinions respectfully about problems, and try to use common sense. Examples of destructive behavior:
-some of the most respected people in the community even respond to the troll posts that can easily be ignored
-not seeing bluntly hate written posts, and not dealing with them correctly and causing more drama
-dividing the community more and even raiding good ideas
-and not coming together to create or even expand on ideas given by our peers.
Yea, I wasn't the best either. I joined the forum to extend concern for the broken kick but grew angry with the lack of support and the new reign of people coming in to abuse the broken system without a bat of an eye. Because face it . . if there is a vulnerability in a multiplayer game, people are going to abuse it regardless, and defend themselves without thought for others so they can keep getting those high ranks and bones. Sometimes logic isn't everything, sometimes compassion is key. And I'm ready to help this game, so should those who play it, to help it for the better.
And for all of you who don't get the 'honor' or sorta self righteous codes people have in this game, remember that it's a game, we have fun fighting in it and it's unlike no other. For long enough time the community has had a great attitude toward bettering their selves, having better fights, and having fun. The 'honor' and self placed rules of ways that the game should be looked at is because we used to ALL have fun in this game, that's why people cherish the old days. And we should have that respect towards each other when ever in a duel, and atleast give consideration to one another when in fort though fort is a different story. Though it may not be explicitly said what self made rules there are, there is a certain degree of common sense in this, and it's simply do not be an unfair jerk and respect your opponent.
But maybe this is wasted pushing of buttons . . . I hope not, because I still believe in this community, because this game can thrive if we all put differences aside.
This game lives or dies.
