    Your forgetting: You have one 9 more behind the comma in the 0.99999..... As you've multiplied by 10 moving 1 nine forward. Therefore 9.99999...99 - 0.99999...999 = 8.99999...991 and as such the X goes back to equalling 0.999...

    [quote]In application, if you tear one piece of paper into thirds, you've merely created three more pieces of paper. You've divided the size but multiplied the quantity, and in neither case have you created anything infinite.

    I don't know if it applies, but something interesting to consider is the fact that .9 = 1

    1/3 = .[u]3[/u]
    3*(1/3)= 3*.[u]3[/u]
    Therefore .[u]9[/u] = 1

    Here you see infinite information equaling something finite.
    [/quote]

    To start off, the 1 is an infinitely significant number (else, it might well be a rounded off 0.[u]9[/u])

    Now, as those 0's keep going into infinity (1.000000000000 etc.) You have an even number of "fibres" the paper consists off. You can not claim to have 0.[u]3[/u] of the fibres papers significantly because you'll have lost a 0.000...00001 somewhere. And therefore the 0.[u]9[/u] != 1.

    Now, an example of how I (till proven otherwise ) would have an infinite number equal a finite one. Imagen a line in a coordinate system (x,y) Y=X now, if we'd have the line Y= -X they intersect in 0 point. If we have a line Y= X+2 they do not intersect, so 0 points. Now, if we have another line X=Y. How many points of intersection do we have? We might have an infinite number of POI's, we might have 1 or we might have none at all depending on how you look at it.

    [quote]Secondly, defence. MB and Loreroot in particular have two access points into them. Necrovion and underground have but one. Granted golemus is accessible by two, but again there is the distance factor and one is the maze, which also requires going through other lands like MB and the archives. Underground also falls under this category as its inside MB. MB is easily the worst placed land in this and after that its probably Loreroot and Underground.[/quote]

    Actually UG is one of the best positioned lands, it's 13 steps from the GoE, 10 of which have an UG land affiliation (which is very important) and this entire path is 1 road only. LR has 4 scenes with LR land affiliation, before the path splits (seen from Ravenhold). This isn't ideal, but it's manageable to defend with just one character and it's a long way from anywhere (including MB which is 14, of which only 1 MB affiliated and 15 from GoE, with added advantage of 35 AP cost at maple road). Necrovion is actually the worst situated land after MB with only 12 steps between GoE and it's capitol.

    ~Obs

    PS: Perfect people don't gloat.
    PPS: I take no responsibility for the accuracy of the numbers above, they might be one off or so...

    EDIT: Only viable solution I can see is closing LR hidden exit to all those who hold a torch and add some full AP loss scenes in MB as it's only 7 scenes from GoE

    Well... "excessive spam" is not only noticeable by admins/mods. But by any regular user. Now, I doubt there's any regular user out there who does not consider most of DR's posts spam (no offence). Moderators and Admins check on each other, and as long as these things are done publicly we check on them. Mur probably has the final say in things, if you're afraid of his bias you might as well leave MD right away.

    ~Obs

    EDIT: It seems Malaikat Maut removed his post (or the censorship has started o.O) either way it was him stating that this new system might make bias easier.

    That topic calls for images. You can comment on other people images but just "LOL " seems like a rather empty reply. A bit more text about why it is funny might help, some more humour might as well. There isn't really any point for someone else in reading you found it funny...

    In general: Don't post unargumented statements and try to stay on topic. (that's my view on things anyway)

    I'm afraid I don't see any point in this. If you want to learn about rituals, I'd suggest the fight club. It's simple and effective mainly because it does NOT have rules and does NOT rely on community support.

    I agree the GGG was a good place set up by the MRs. The ONLY issue I can see with this is the increase in the past couple months of mp3s and mp4 who should be out enjoying the actual battles instead of mindless training at the GGG. The whole purpose of the GGG, in my opinion, was created to help the MP5s. Many of the older MP5s out there are close to or at skill loss. [color="#FF0000"]With the DSTs, Burns, Dayredeemer, Observer, etc. who run around attacking[/color] anything they see without mercy, the GGG gives people a safe place to train. Is it wrong for them to attack everything in sight? Of course not, they are as [color="#FF0000"]free to do as they like as anyone else.[/color] It does however make those with huge loss numbers hide in the [color="#FF0000"]GGG and in sanctuaries[/color] in fear of skill damage. Add to that the HC when it becomes a free for all of losses, and you get what you have currently.

    Burns is somewhat an exception because [color="#FF0000"]every once in a blue moon[/color] he will put up defenses that are beatable. For the most part these "monster" fighters have impossible defenses and offenses for the general MP5/alliance population. Add to that the fact that it's near impossible for MP5s to gain honest victories I see the GGG as a safehaven for the "weaker" MP5s to try and work on stats, and creatures in hopes of one day being able to defend against 6 drachorns with full tokens barraging them [color="#FF0000"]every available chance[/color].

    For the most part the GGG does not give victories, so it's not like people are climbing out of the [color="#FF0000"]-500, -800, -1200 losses they are down.[/color] So again I say, the GGG is a great place for the MP5s. I think more the issue is the MP3 who stays an MP3 for 6 months, trains creatures to max, and obliterates all new players who come in to the point they can't help but wonder if the whole game will be this kind of ruthless attacking. The saddest part is they usually come to find out that it is, unless they spend lots of money in the MD shop and time at the GGG like some *cough* MP3s are doing.
    [/quote]

    Let me just start of by saying I'm rarely one to attack "weaker" players. Actually, I'm rarely one to be online these days. You happen to be unlucky enough to have annoyed me enough for me to derive pleasure from destroying your defence. Also, I don't see dayredeemer running all over the place... Or burns... Or dst even...

    Then you go on to say that we are free to do as we like... I wonder how you'd feel if we did what we "like" at the GGG.

    The next part I've highlighted is "GGG and sanctuaries" appearantly GGG is viewed as a sanctuary. Do you find it odd there's no one you can beat out (or have a good fight with) if they all hide away?

    The following point: Have you even tried attacking burns in the past month? I don't think he's had anything up you wouldn't actually have to know some game mechanics to lose against... As a sidenote there I might just add there's a no token (only 1 rust) defence up on me (observer) I haven't received incommings in days so I just throught I'd say.

    -500 to -1200 losses... You know why they have those? To actually get some stats from no exp fights. Most of those do know what they're doing and are purposefully keeping their ballance low and could easily get it up(Treehill excepted...)

    All in all, I say you should get your facts straight

    The following point: Have you even tried attacking burns in the past month? I don't think he's had anything up you wouldn't actually have to know some game mechanics to lose against... As a sidenote there I might just add there's a no token (only 1 rust) defence up on me (observer) I haven't received incommings in days so I just throught I'd say.

    -500 to -1200 losses... You know why they have those? To actually get some stats from no exp fights. Most of those do know what they're doing and are purposefully keeping their ballance low and could easily get it up(Treehill excepted...)

    All in all, I say you should get your facts straight

    I agree the GGG was a good place set up by the MRs. The ONLY issue I can see with this is the increase in the past couple months of mp3s and mp4 who should be out enjoying the actual battles instead of mindless training at the GGG. The whole purpose of the GGG, in my opinion, was created to help the MP5s. Many of the older MP5s out there are close to or at skill loss. With the DSTs, Burns, Dayredeemer, Observer, etc. who run around attacking anything they see without mercy, the GGG gives people a safe place to train. Is it wrong for them to attack everything in sight? Of course not, they are as free to do as they like as anyone else. It does however make those with huge loss numbers hide in the GGG and in sanctuaries in fear of skill damage. Add to that the HC when it becomes a free for all of losses, and you get what you have currently.

    Burns is somewhat an exception because every once in a blue moon he will put up defenses that are beatable. For the most part these "monster" fighters have impossible defenses and offenses for the general MP5/alliance population. Add to that the fact that it's near impossible for MP5s to gain honest victories I see the GGG as a safehaven for the "weaker" MP5s to try and work on stats, and creatures in hopes of one day being able to defend against 6 drachorns with full tokens barraging them every available chance.

    For the most part the GGG does not give victories, so it's not like people are climbing out of the -500, -800, -1200 losses they are down. So again I say, the GGG is a great place for the MP5s. I think more the issue is the MP3 who stays an MP3 for 6 months, trains creatures to max, and obliterates all new players who come in to the point they can't help but wonder if the whole game will be this kind of ruthless attacking. The saddest part is they usually come to find out that it is, unless they spend lots of money in the MD shop and time at the GGG like some *cough* MP3s are doing.

    I cannot understand why GGG is being singled out for some players boredum. Look within yourself and not at GGG or Magic Duel. When you point a finger, do the other four fingers not point back at you?

    Has Cutler's creation of the Astral Plane been explored fully? I am constantly finding things within the Astral Plane to do and new things to learn. Go to Talking Rock at Gazebo of Equalibrium or touch the Attic Rope in the Paper Cabin and you can travel all over Magic Duel and not have to leave your scene or lose Action Points. Between Astral Plane Loreroot, Marind Bell and GGG, there is plenty to explore and see that you cannot reach otherwise.
    Cutler is constantly creating puzzles and has a million ideas. Why not get with Culter and do a round-robin of idea exchanges?

    Brush off your drama club skills of yesterday and try role playing with some people. Yes, some are quite silly but there are some that are quite interesting.

    Magic Duel isn't just about raising the stats of your creatures or fighting others anymore. It is an important part, YES. However, Magic Duel is a place where you can let your imagination run WILD. You can be anything, do anything so long as you stay withing the established guidelines. Don't know how to role play? Watch others, interact with others and learn. Magic Duel is about learning from others.

    Mur is the creator of Magic Duel but he is only one man. Just like the rest of us, he gets burned out and so he took a rest and rightly so. Everyone goes to him when there is something wrong or something isn't to the liking of a player. I cannot imagine what his Private Message Box looks like and I don't envy his tasks. However, he is the Creator and he will endure. What can YOU as a player, a Character in Magic Duel, DO to help Mur? I mean besides getting on your high horse and complaining? Mur has always said that Magic Duel is about the players actions, not his own that makes this Realm so great!

    Let US, the Characters in Magic Duel, do our parts to help Magic Duel Become! WE are responsible for the content.

    Let me just start of by saying I'm rarely one to attack "weaker" players. Actually, I'm rarely one to be online these days. You happen to be unlucky enough to have annoyed me enough for me to derive pleasure from destroying your defence. Also, I don't see dayredeemer running all over the place... Or burns... Or dst even...

    Then you go on to say that we are free to do as we like... I wonder how you'd feel if we did what we "like" at the GGG.

    The next part I've highlighted is "GGG and sanctuaries" appearantly GGG is viewed as a sanctuary. Do you find it odd there's no one you can beat out (or have a good fight with) if they all hide away?

    The following point: Have you even tried attacking burns in the past month? I don't think he's had anything up you wouldn't actually have to know some game mechanics to lose against... As a sidenote there I might just add there's a no token (only 1 rust) defence up on me (observer) I haven't received incommings in days so I just throught I'd say.
