    Firsanthalas got a reaction from Mallos in The naked truth.   
    I decided I have enough and I am going to say exactly what I think.

    In some ways this should be private between Mur and myself. But in other ways, no it deserves to be public.
    Mur says he allows free speech and this is the view of ONE person in MD. Anyone is free to agree or disagree with me, so by making this public I am opening myself up to as much insult, injury or plain old abuse as Mur is getting from me because of what I have written (or not). I will apologise for hurt I may cause, but I will not apologise for my view on things.

    Over time I have brought things up I have been unhappy with. I have written lengthy threads/emails about things. Undoubtedly some of it has been seen as stupid, wrong, preaching, longwinded, call it what you will. I am sure that at times I have not been as right as I felt. But I have always said what I believed to be true.
    Your response to this has usually taken the form of a very personal attack. You have called me a coward, stupid, naïve, lazy among other things. And yes you have actually put it quite plainly as ‘you are a coward’ ‘you are incompetent’ etc etc. And I mean plainly to me, not even when you go off calling the kings in general inept or what have you.

    You say I whine. You seem to think that all I do is whine. Well, you should look in the mirror bud. On more than one occasion you have had a good old whine about how you are fed up dealing with ‘stuff’ (I want to use a different S word here, but I will refrain even though I believe it is appropriate) and that you setup the kings and the council etc to deal with it. That you shouldn’t have to respond to things.

    Newsflash! YOU set them up. You setup the council and you complain it isn’t working or doing its job. Well, YOU appointed the council. YOU also set the council up to make decisions, to be autonomous. Yet on at least one occasion YOU personally stepped in and over-ruled the council. So YOU undermined the council. If you feel that the council is not working then YOU can change the people on it, the format of it or YOU can remove it.
    (By the way, I could tell you why they don’t work, I have tried to point out an error with at least one, but you simply ignore it as whining. But suffice it to say that simply changing the people will not actually change much if anything at all)

    In one of my last outbursts to the council YOU responded personally. And yes, your answer was VERY personal. You even went to far as to point out that you were being gracious enough to not punish me for my use of bad language. For anyone that is interested, my language was most foul, it was intended to be to stress my annoyance. It seems that this is what saved me from punishment. Now, the thing is, this was a letter sent to the council, not broadcast on the forum. As such, I view this as private. So, YOU may feel it was improper or foul or anything you like. But quite frankly it was private, not public.
    On the other hand, YOU dragged this matter onto the forums. While not obvious to anyone not privy to the private matter, YOU did this nonetheless. And your reason for doing this was for YOUR satisfaction. To be fair, when I complained you did remove it. However, I am sure that was just another example of whiny Firs and you felt you better do it rather than listen to me whine about it some more (I am being sarcastic, I would like to believe that you removed it due to sincerity, but you never apologised, so I will never really know perhaps).
    When people use certain words on the forums they have been told to change them or had them changed and even warned and told off for their language or banned etc. And we are talking about words that do not begin with F here and words that many would view as no issue at all I might add. Yet YOU have used the F word on the forums and I have not seen or heard of anything being said to you. It seems that there is a rule for everyone else and a different rule for YOU.

    YOU want people like me to use the needles to see Eon bring a case for being bullied. YOU want other people to do this. Why should I or anyone else doing something that YOU are not willing to do?
    And WHY are we seemingly ignoring any issue with anyone else being bullied because YOU want people to gang up on Eon and have Eon bring a case first?
    YOU can call me stupid or lazy or a coward or anything YOU want. But, I WILL NOT do something that YOU will not do yourself.
    It starts from the top. YOU cannot expect people to do things you are unwilling to do YOURSELF.
    Either a rule about bad language on the forums applies to everyone or it does not apply at all. YOU are not and cannot be the exception to the rule. Owners/Moderators of a forum cannot police rules they themselves do not respect. It is hypocritical and makes the rules itself void.

    You talk about respect. Well, I may have said things you didn’t like. I may have said things that were wrong. BUT, I have never disrespected you by calling you names or attacking your character. You may feel that I have and you may feel that I am doing so now. But I have never treated you with contempt and I have never ridiculed you for my own amusement. I have also had the decency to apologise to you when I have gone too far or at least felt I had. NEVER, NOT ONCE HAVE YOU APOLOGISED TO ME.
    I don’t need an apology to feel better about myself by the way. I don’t need you to tell me I am not a coward or stupid or anything else. I know exactly what I am. I know my faults and failings and I know when someone is talking through their rear end in what they are calling me.

    And for the record. There is no brainwashing going on in Loreroot that I am aware of. There may have been in the past and I was one of the people that brought it to your attention. Yet it seems that whenever you get a bit annoyed with me you role that one out. If it ain’t you that does it, somebody else does and you are happy to let it out there.
    I have not asked anyone to leave MD or to hate you or anyone else. I have not tried to create some kind of mini group within MD with some strange and pointless aim of ruining MD. People in Loreroot do not have some kind of organised hate MUR, or dst or anyone else campaign going despite what some people like to think or even insinuate on the forums. I actually find the notion mildly amusing and completely at odds with the fact that you think I just do nothing but whine.

    You can content yourself that the only people that agree with me are the whiners in Loreroot. What saddens me is that you don’t take a step back and realise that like it or no, that is a percentage of the population in MD. That it is so easy to simply write all those people off as some kind of whiner fruitcakes. We are all from different countries, different religions, ethnic groups, coulours, capabilities, attitudes, experiences, age, sex, you name it. But it all boils down to Loreroot = whiners.
    That is not an indictment of the people in Loreroot, that is an indictment of YOU. You allow this mentality to foster and it seems that you share it yourself. In fact, I would argue that it is because YOU hold this view that others share it.
    Like it or not, MD is your creation and YOU have a public that YOU can preach YOUR ideas and opinions to. And many people hold YOU up to be some kind of deity, hero, oracle, font of knowledge, whatever you like. Ironically, like a god, you seem dismayed and bewildered and angry that you have given your children such wonderful gifts and we have chosen to not use them as you expected us to. It’s hard when mere mortals cannot grasp the magnitude of the divine vision and wisdom.

    I am not saying that you want that. In fact I believe that you are uncomfortable with it and I consider that to be a good thing. But I equally feel that you sometimes forget that. Me or anyone else not agreeing with you is no bad thing either. You need to be told when you are talking rubbish (or at least when someone feels you are). I am not so sure that you handle that so well at times though. You have to realise that when you decide to put the boot in to someone you can expect a tide of people supporting you. But you have to accept that you will get that support even when you are wrong. And yes, like me there are times when you are wrong. Why? Because you are human, you make mistakes, like the rest of us (except of course dst, who is never wrong (there is an element of sarcasm there) ).

    I am far from perfect. There is always more I could do, should do even. But don’t dare to tell me to stop whining, or man up, or what have you, unless you are willing to do the same yourself. Stop blaming others, lead by example.

    Firsanthalas got a reaction from dst in The Bad-Ass Mp3 Strikes Back!   
    Initially I wasn't going to post, but then I decided that I should.
    First up. Nobody likes a bragger. We all like to get one over on our foes from time to time, but this is going way overboard.
    Secondly, I don't agree with the argument that the vets are just angry because an MP3 beat them. Losses are part of fighting and when the fighting system was more balanced it was not unheard of for a player to be beaten by a lower level. For starters there is an amazingly simple little rit that can score a person a surprise victory (although it has become less likely to work in more recent times, but sometimes it still can).
    I have seen February sitting at the park with that ridiculous rit as his defence rit. I have a serious issue with that for one simple reason, he is MP3. It is clear that the account was created purely to take scalps. It is a pretty ridiculous account to be fair. It was purely engineered to create such a rit and nothing else. The fact that he can defeat some of the most powerful fighters in the game with it pretty much cries out for him to be booted up a few MP levels. Why?, because it is way beyond the realm of other MP3s and if we start to see more of this nonsense it will have a negative effect on MD. I'm sorry, but I don't see the sense in people creating new MP3 accounts with the sole purpose of trying to somehow create ubber hard killing machine accounts. It think that ruins the game to be honest and takes a large dump on the people that are actually playing for the first time and are struggling to find their feet.

    Given the amount of age, wins and xp it is completely nuts to think that an MP3 has maxed angiens. Granted it is obviously possible for an MP3 to have them, but to be honest I think they shouldn't. For me at least, part of MD is about progression. MP3 is really more of a learning phase about the game. The levels required to advance are low and I believe deliberately so. If you have mastered what you need, then you should advance. Hanging around with the 10 yr olds at school when you are 18 so that you can say you are so much better than the 18 yr olds coz you can beat them up and you are only in the 10 yr old class......well it seems stupid to me.

    One other thing. There is no skill involved here at all. Given some help and time anyone else could do something similar. The rit itself also has a high element of luck involved in its effectiveness. If it freezes the right creatures the opponent has etc. And as has already been stated, it gets beaten, it isn't like Feb is so all powerful that he defeats the MP5s every single time.

    If this was about proving a point of some sort then fine. But I think the point is proven, so either move on or just drop it. It is getting old now.

    (Note to mods, I tried to avoid spoilers although my comments towards the end may be spoilerish. Sorry, but I couldn't think of a way to make the point otherwise.)

    I simply sought to step down without a fuss. Some of my reasons are personal and in my opinion not for public consumption. If people are that concerned they are free to ask me and I will answer them, I just don't feel like airing my personal business to all and sundry.
    As for your mood or my response, well you will have to forgive me, but you seemed to focus on certain things in MD and that coupled with your general reaction to people when quitting, well it felt more like an accusation than a question. You are more than welcome to discuss anything with me privately if you wish. You have multiple ways to contact me. I simply don't want to be discussing this to the general public.

    Firsanthalas got a reaction from Dragual in Rangers Of Loreroot   
    Sparrhawk,

    The issue is not the idea, it never was. The idea has merit. The issue was the manner in which it was simply declared as being official and the reaction afterwards. They say that the road to hell is paved with the best intentions.
    For starters, if a guild or group is supposed to be somehow representative of a land, then it must go through a process whereby others can see it and give their opinions. If you wish to build a house or start a company, there are things you have to do. Planning permission, registering, patent checks etc etc. You cannot work on something and then simply decide that it is official. It doesn't work that way. Take the COE. The COE did not simply exist officially one day because one or two people decided it was a good idea. (I know this is an extreme example and not entirely the same, but you get the idea).
    There is a tendency for people to get an idea and want to push it through quickly without really considering the consequences. Furthermore, if people are running around working on projects or plans without telling people, how do you know that it is not going to interfere with other things going on? You could have two groups working on essentially the same thing simultaneously, yet independently.
    Consider the land as a company called Loreroot Inc. You have the department managers, Tarquinus, Marvolo, Mya, The Sybil and a few others perhaps, and then you have the MD, the king. A company organises itself and determines what resources and personnel go into different tasks, like R & D, or product creation, marketing etc. You may be on a development team, but other people in the company will be involved at some point, be it packaging, branding, marketing, pricing, or whatever.
    It works because there is management and communication. If the R & D department decided to take it upon themselves to research, develop, manufacture and market a product and then distribute it without anyone else knowing what would happen?
    The issue is not about control for the sake of control, but for the sake of the sanity and image of Loreroot Inc.
    You don't want the stock value of Loreroot Inc to tumble and leave it open to a hostile takeover or near bankruptcy do you?

    Authority..... I'm the king. I know you've never liked it, but there it is.
    Working together....Exactly! You decided to set a group up without consultation.
    For the record, I would most likely have not objected to the group, but the fact remains, you don't have the authority to create any group or title on behalf of Loreroot. Why don't you just name yourself as 'Heir to the throne of Loreroot' or the 'Real King of Loreroot'.
    You can wail and moan as much as you like. The simple fact is it is a neccessary requirement so that abuses and liberties don't occur. Loreroot gets a bad reputation because of precisely this kind of moronic rubbish.
    I have made a decree as king. You could have spoken to me and asked that the Rangers of Loreroot be made official. You didn't. I have had enough of it now really. You know where the door is. If you can't follow my rule, then leave. The choice is yours. And should you decide that you won't leave, but feel you can continue to ignore me or berate me, then I will show you the door personally.
    The choice is yours to make. This applies to anyone else that has similar issues. My door is always open to any of you and you all know it. So I will not entertain you or anyone else behaving like this.

    I announce that the Rangers of Loreroot officially do not exist and are disbanded forth with.
    If you or anyone else wish to create any group or title of Loreroot, you need to discuss it with myself and others first. If you have an idea, then do it properly or not at all. You have overstepped the mark here by a long way.

    was it the kingslayer rumor spread by granos?
    was it the constant harrasing done by eon?
    was it the perpetual discontent you had with how things go in md?
    were feeling allone as the only king left?

    its obviously better you tell than let people, including me, jump to conclusions or make suppositions.
    (i will detail about some of things i mentioned above in a separate topic) [/quote]

    Does it really matter? Is this a genuine question out of genuine interest or something else? I notice you never listed something like a real life issue. Do my reasons really make a difference?

    I simply sought to step down without a fuss. Some of my reasons are personal and in my opinion not for public consumption. If people are that concerned they are free to ask me and I will answer them, I just don't feel like airing my personal business to all and sundry.
    As for your mood or my response, well you will have to forgive me, but you seemed to focus on certain things in MD and that coupled with your general reaction to people when quitting, well it felt more like an accusation than a question. You are more than welcome to discuss anything with me privately if you wish. You have multiple ways to contact me. I simply don't want to be discussing this to the general public.

    Firsanthalas reacted to Mighty Pirate in No   
    This is about Murs announcement no 2076 and this thread: [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/10912-is-this-allowed/#rep_filter_menucontent"]http://magicduel.inv...ter_menucontent[/url] where I said that I will take any punishment seriously.

    Sent to jail for shared tools related abuse: Nadrolski, Paracelsus, Mighty Pirate. jail time two weeks (to be relased after day 330). At the time i issued the warnings i said something about a bounty for anyone helping to track item related abuses or potential abuses, the bounty collected by Eon.

    Here is what I think. There are basically two ways to handle this. One way would be to use the jail time to finish the Fusioneers quest, do research, try to give skill-damage back to Eon, and do all the other funny things.

    The other option is to join the MD police and complain department. I could analyze log files and complain about all people who transfer items between Alts. I could spy out MP6 and complain about all MP6 who keep their status with Alts. I could complain about a person because that person accepted a bounty for jailing people but abused his Alts to collect the data for this. I could complain about a person because this person abused his Alts to spy for attack or transfer spell targets. However, this is definitely NOT the way I like MD.

    I finally decided that I will take a third option. Yrth is my king. He gave me permission to act. My Fusioneers guild leader supported me. Mur decided to overrule Yrth and put me to jail. I am Mighty Pirate and I overrule Mur - I do not accept his punishment. I love freedom too much. Mighty Pirate will sail away and there is nothing you can do about it.

    My items and creatures will go to Yrth. I will take all my Gold and Silver with me. My memories will keep all the nice people from MD (which, of course, includes Mur).
