A true Merry Christmas

Recommended Posts

In light of some of the topics that have been created about Christmas this year I thought it would be appropriate to have a topic where people who have something positive to share about Christmas can do so.

Please feel free to thank Mur, quest creators, people who did something during the Christmas season (or the past year) that made it special for you.

If your Christmas in MD wasn't great, I'm sorry that you didn't have a great Christmas but please keep your comments to the positive in this thread.

I'll go first:


I would like to start off by saying thank you to Mur for putting up the tree and gifts again this year.

Next I would like to thank Mur and/or Rendril for fixing the extra heat slot gift. It worked great this year.

To whoever played Confused Santa this year, thank you for giving of your time to play that role. (I missed it personally but it sounds like it was a lot of fun for those who were present)

There was an announcement recently stating that there has been a council rotation so I would like to say thank you to those who serve(d) on council and try to make MD run a bit smoother for us all.

I would like to thank Mur, Rendril, and whoever became Confused Santa for all the hard work they put into making this Christmas happen. Christmas with Magicduel had a huge influence in making my holiday enjoyable. Overall, despite the hiccups, I feel that this year was a job well done. Thank you.

I would like to thank everyone who did my contest, and everyone who was gift giving as well as getting. Thanks to BFH for the fun contests and all the Holiday contests, Thanks to Eon for talking with me via forums and thanks for the very interesting creature called "gift" that Santa gave me.

I would like to personally thank BFH for his entertaining Christmas events, some were unusual, most were unfair but all were fun. Thank you again BFH for giving us a Christmas to remember.

I would also like to extend my gratitude to the MD community itself. Christmas is a time to be shared and enjoyed and without the community, there would have been nobody to cherish this special day with. Thank you everyone.

Hmm where do I start. Finally a good topic.

I would like to start with thanking Zleiphneir. Few people know the true extent of this mans friendship. Being a strange and lazy goatboy is a nice front for the more intelligent man with words. My best friend in MD (yes i know its twisted to kill your own best friend), but also a main reason why I think some vets stick around. Its friends like these that keep us to the game, because honestly the game itself has lost most of its flavor of the "good ol' days".

I would like to thank whoever (i imagine Mur) came up with the idea for Confused Santa. This being my 3rd Christmas as Phantasm, it was by far the best. Like others have said, actual interaction with someone who wanted to give out gifts was far better then clicking buttons. I still enjoy the presents under the tree. They have always been, and always will be good additions to those who are ACTIVE enough to deserve them. Even Active Days doesn't always mean active members in the community, and I think this year that fact was really targeted.

I would like to thank DST, Seigheart, and all those other villains out there. I can't really think up anything good to say about you all, just figured being Christmas time should include the bad people :P

I would like to thank the few in MD who really keep the game in its proper perspective. With all the "resources" and other things, many times this game seems to have turned into a horder game. Like most other FTP games its turned into 'who can have the most stuff and make everyone else look like jackasses, then tell them they are jackasses and hold the stuff up in front of them laughing'. The result is people like the Eon conglomerate, Seigheart's "position of power", Shape Shifter (in earlier times), and so on. Most of the value of what MD was founded and built upon by the vets before us is gone, and a new value of MD has arrived. Gold and Silver. Simple as that, its now a build em up game to see who can be the richest.

I would like to thank Sagewoman. For more reasons to state, and some not proper for public statement:P

I would like to thank everyone who puts work into the actual coding, ideas, and progress in MD. Though some of us don't always agree with the progress, it is still movement. Nothing is worse then a stagnant game, and at times it seemed MD was doomed, only to have movement rush at us with full speed. Rendril and I'm sure others, that have been added to help have made mass improvements and changes to the game this past year.

Excellent topic!
Thanks to everyone who is reading this, and those that may not be, but still have a presence in the MD realm in some form or fashion. We all make this one of the best darn "online games" out there, in my opinion. You are too numerous and varied to mention in even an epic tome-worth of pictures, (which are 1000 words each!?! ;) ).

I also loved seeing the minor "irritation" of having to scroll my browser down a lot to keep up with chat, because the list of active people at the GoE was so long! It really reminded me that MD is what is is because of the community of players. I sometimes see less of them because of idle hours, but knowing there's this whole world of people in the realm beyond my usual haunts, makes me smile deep in my heart.

Thanks and Happy Holydays[sic] MD!

Dst, I believe you are in the wrong topic, this one is for good, enjoyable, merry and happy stuff.
If you want to do the opposite, I think there are some other topics out there that fit that mood perfectly

I'd like to thank BFH for his amazing three days of fun, happiness and joy! It took him a lot of hard work to pull it all off but he managed to do so spectacularly.

Thank you BFH. I hope we can do something like this again next year.

      This Christmas I, and quite a few others, have received a rather large disappointment in the Murmas celebrations. Instead of receiving the gifts as so many others have, we received nothing, Zilch.

      It seems that [i]active days[/i] has become the new currency of loyalty to the game, although some don't quite seem to get the idea that not all of us can log on every day for a few hours due to work, family or other real life issues. This makes the Christmas a very unfair period, especially to those that [b]have [/b]been around for a long time and trying to get as involved as much as we physically can.

      I myself felt rather disappointed, and slightly annoyed, as I watched those that are rarely seen doing anything in the community, receive so much. I see people hold such an arrogance to active days these days, and this raises my annoyance, especially as I have tried to log on as often as possible, do as much as possible and, trying to keep in contact with it as much as I can. I'd also like to point out here that someone would not spend around $2000 [b]just[/b] for the [i]perks [/i]of a game.

      Active days, for the tree, is a rather petty, and lazy, way of looking at [i]loyalty [/i]to a game.

      On a personal note I found the Confused santa rather ignorant and [b]very[/b] annoying, due to the fact that the confused santa decided to ignore me completely when he asked "is there anyone that hasn't received a present?" and when I asked "I wonder if santa has some sort of grudge against me", of which I may have missed the reply if these was one due to real-life christmas issues, that when I asked "Did I miss Santa's reply?" he decided to say "[b][url="http://magicduel.com/dlg/dlg.userdetails_arena.php?eid=GIU3LEK8AGLtrpaNcFk-hA,,"][color=#CC0033]Confused Santa[/color][/url]: [/b][color=#000000][font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=2]Sasha you missed it, too bad." [/size][/font][/color]

      If you get a Santa then you should make sure it is a neutral player or an outside [i]adjudicator[/i]
      of sorts.

      So basically, what IS game loyalty based on? In my mind if a player that has been playing for three years, logged on regularly and spent around $2000(and more) then I don't really know what you would say a [i]loyal[/i] players was.

      End of Rant

      ~Sasha

      P.s. Sorry, to be precise " a player that has been playing for 1238 days."

      Edit: After around 3 people asking Santa to give me a gift he decided to give me one. I chose to accept it and then pass it on. My point still stands. Would you enjoy a gift if it was given to you through pressure or because they actually wanted to?

      So I have heard of some cards being sent. I am currently sending a couple, but I have three left besides any I could print out.

      If you want to exchange cards, send me a PM (here or in game) by no later than tomorrow afternoon (25 hours after this post). If I run out, I will print cards as long as people don't mind that I am a poor broke college student!
