    Aeo, in his post about the auction, Mur began by saying "this one, I play." I'd like you to think about that for a moment. Mur's had an idea, and perhaps - perhaps - he didn't think through every angle of it before running with it. He's impulsive like that. Is it absolutely necessary for you to feel personally victimized by a whimsical notion? And more importantly: is Mur never allowed to play? I'm the reverse of you in many ways - I am older, I work, and I have spent a fair amount of money on MagicDuel. I don't have (to borrow a phrase from Douglas Adams) a whelk's chance in a supernova of buying any of these items... and I never will. Why? Because my interest in MD is always in different directions. I like fighting, but not merely to win. I like it when fights have some degree of strategy, and even now, with tokens and 6-drac rituals and everything, tactically brilliant fights are still sometimes fought. I like roleplaying, but most roleplaying in MD gives roleplaying a bad name - and I'm not talking about adult-oriented behavior or the pure obnoxiousness of certain immature players. I'm talking about people who get lauded for "roleplaying well" ...who constantly break character and pretty much ruin the illusion of the fantasy world by remaking it in the image of the mundane one. The point is, I don't care about becoming materially wealthy in MD, owning the rarest creatures, hoarding all the inventory items for no apparent reason, or anything like that. This auction is for the people that do. It disgusts you: fair enough. Leave it at that. Personally, I'm amazed at how much silver and how many heavily tokened creatures some people have managed to acquire. I can't be motivated to do the same, period. I am very sympathetic to many of the things you say, but I feel you have expressed some of your grievances inappropriately and in the wrong place. Because of that, I worry that the genuinely legitimate grievances you have will be lost in the shuffle and cacophony of people shouting "BOO!" P.S. Dumbstruck is a word, and a good one.

    No Bonusses For Loreroot Archers..

    [quote name='Redd' date='07 January 2010 - 03:44 PM' timestamp='1262879059' post='52100'] The LR archer is not a training crit, and so the stats you're supposed to get is neglegible anyway, and so are the VE/VP bonus. [/quote] A training crit! whats one of those you can train anything to sac. And that should mean anything should be able to be sacked, i think this needs to be fixed There are NO training crits, MD isnt a fixed game, you can do what you want.

    But why? Why make a club just for women? If men were to make a club just for them you all would scream: DISCRIMINATION!! What happens in this club that no men are allowed? I am just curious...

    hey, something just crossed my mind... so i have to write it down, else i'll forget about it xD Some time ago, the equip-weapons were changed to give a %-based boost instead of absolute numbers, and i guess that was done for a reason (namely because of massive abuse with sun god and medusa sets on alts, i think) What still remains unchanged, though, is the house and ally-boost, which makes newbies massively stronger, too With upcoming citizenship, which might or might not include house boosts for citizens, maybe those boosts should be revised, too... It's not too much of a problem with allies since those are pretty limited and rather role-based, even when some seats in allies seem to be taken mainly for the house-boosts and regens, but with citizenship, which will most probably be given out on a larger scale than ally-seats, people might tend to pick a land solely for the purpose of stat-boni, and the abusive character would be a lot bigger when people can't be attacked by higher mps as it happens in allies

    As we all know that once our creature evolves....its ability also changes but if a creature becomes max level......its ability becomes stagnant ( If I am right). I would suggest to keep a Win and XP requirement for such creatures so that meeting those requirements will make them learn a new attack....... Suppose a chaos archer........has damage ability......now suppose if he wins some 350 battles and have 5lakh xp....he should learn a new ability like "Thousand Arrows" or something. Similarily to other creatures also. Now comes to the weapons. We require a weapon research centre so that new and enhanced weapons can be added and the weapons that we are using should have an impact on the creature For example I have 3 archers and if have amazons fury (bow).......archers ability should enhance more. If I have an axe as weapon, my aramors ability should enhance more than others. I would also suggest to have weapons for creatures too....... Aramors can have enhanced silver axe, archers can get some special arrows. I thinK I will be able to help in these....... [font="Arial Black"]Do see my papers.....I am doing some researches.[/font]

    I find the auction, to be honest and to get my reputation to -100 or so, rather stupid. Stupid because i can't find any other word. As much as I agree that people should be rewarded for their work, I am simply.... dumbstruck? (did I invent a new word?) by the idea of an auction. If you want to reward them, reward them personally. Not by putting some awesome creatures / other things under our noses and then let people show off how much credits they pay. (yes shadow, i read your post). An auction should give ALL participants an equal chance, or at least try to. And the idea of a separate auction for... "lowlifes" i think you'd call us if even more hilarious. What are we gonna fight for? An Aramor with Claw 1 on it?? It seems as if this auction is just meant to upset people and give others a reason to flick others' noses "HA! See what i got?" It seems so corrupt and... ugh... At least you could have made it private, so we don't have to watch. And you wonder why people leave from MD. Don't tell me to leave if i don't like it. I just wanted to point something out. Of course you like it, so far I've seen posts from people who have a chance of winning something and don't just have to watch how others get items / spells / creatures that will get them even more lost fights (etc). I'd like the idea as well if i knew I'd stand a chance. I tried to ignore every bad aspect of MD until now. People get away unpunished, some get to finish quests faster because they tucked some coins in the right pocket, creatures / items given for the very good reason of being in 'love' with someone 5000 miles across the world, completely unfair system for newbies, and many more. I hate being impolite, but one thing I don't stand for is discrimination. Argue about this as much as you want, this is just the way i see it. As I said, my intention is not to alter the course of the current auction, but to point out some things (that may or may not deflate some ego-s). MD is going the wrong way, and I think the best example of what happens when something goes wrong from the high positions in the social hierarchy is Romania itself, Mur / Manu should know what i'm talking about. It's pretty much the same situation. oh, and just in case you start typing "well nobody asked you to go and look at the items for sale" stop and read. [spoiler]It's in the announcements, everyone's talking about HOW GREAT it is, it's all over the forum. what would ANYONE do? go check it.[/spoiler]

    How is this different to a normal auction? Those that can put forward the most money will of course win in the auction. It is not a flaw of the auction that you cannot afford bidding. I think it is a great initiative and should be savoured. That which possibly makes it seem unfair is the high prices the opening bids started at, this was of course a strategic move to eliminate opposition early on, but I feel it was too early too quickly. The minimum starting bid is 1 silver, I would have liked to see it start from that. I know this was a trial run, but I feel 3 items is too little, and they should be auctioned off sequentially rather than all at once. There are people who can pay ridiculous prices for the items, the question is if they are willing to do so. In my experience the objective of the bidder is to aim to spend as little as possible to gain as much as they can (unless of course if for example it is a fundraising auction) Having more items means those who want to spend extremely high prices, can do so, but it gives those who are unable or unwilling to spend extreme amount a chance compete. What I do see as a flaw of the auction is the variable valuation. In a noraml auction the difference between $1 and $10 is clear cut. Here it is a judgemental thing where every person values items differently, and it is not clear what the higher bid might be (not in all cases, but I do see a few) I would like to see the current accepted highest bid updated on ocasion so we know where it stands and can compare to previous bids so we get some indication as to what is considered more valuable.

    Shoeps, make a bid, stop saying you have more than everyone else and actually make a bid to prove it, if you dont bid, you cant win, and posts without bids shouldnt really be on this thread

    Well, the issue is that even the rich lose a lot there..so in a sense this would balance things in terms of wealth, but i'm curious what'll happen to the goods afterwards. Agree though that it is mainly for the rich, or those who are willing to throw in lots of things. Edit: Oh, and I forgot. With this trades would become more interesting again, because people now can work towards their goal.

    For now, I'm strongly against. But we'll have to see how mur "values" WP's before making a definite judgment. Should those be highly valued, I don't mind people getting rare quest rewards for WPs because they have quested for the creats then. They just haven't participated/won the right contests/quest. EDIT: Highest bid for each lot would be great to know as well...

    [quote name='Kragel' date='06 January 2010 - 05:27 PM' timestamp='1262798832' post='52011'] I would offer a Blog Site reviewing the game to collect more players for the Morph Creature and the IV I am currently getting about 100 new unique visits on my sites a day and it is growing at a great rate [/quote] is this something that can be valued? And can it really be sold? For example i could say i offer my services to the forum, But im not going to bother because its worthless.

    You mistake one part. I have not spent a single cent on MD, in terms of real cash. I played lots, which means I invested time, I traded lots, but I never donated to MD: And yet I am where I am today. I'm the proof the unpaying people can get what even some paying people lack.

    So, you want to just get him the archers, and he'd have to pay you 15 credits, AND the credits for the tokens? Bad deal. Real bad deal.
