  1. I dont know I personally like the idea of vets being able to win once again who knows maybe it will but a hold onto the mp3 alts for a month or two besides with the amount of vets and strong players around it will take quite a while before everyone can place again and it would bring a bit of exitement into the game for this to be allowed that just my personal opinion though.

  2. I just read the announcement about the changes in the head contest and got an awesome idea. But let me first briefly explain the situation: Several things have changed – the two most important ones being a much faster distribution of the heads and stage2 lasting twice as long. Every player gets a lot more heads now what leads to stage1 getting finished much quicker than ever before even if 8k score is needed now. Stage2 however is twice as long. In the current head contest the second stage is even longer than the first and in the future they will probably be equally long in average. This is a huge change because in the past stage2 changed nothing at all and everybody just retired. So here my new idea: Allow everybody to participate again and win once again. For the last several months the head contest was dull. Nobody in mp5 participated and mp3 was full of alts. If everybody is allowed to participate again including all the vets there would be much more action and the head contest would be alive again for a long time. I remember ideas about a veteran head contest only which wouldn’t even be necessary anymore if anybody could participate and win again. I am certain it would bring much more life back into MD and a new purpose for a lot of players and new motivations for all those who are interested in competition and combat.

  3. Hard to believe that there are only 40 days till Christmas! Where has the year gone? I am in card sending mood this year and would like to exchange cards with those of my friends here in Magic Duel. For security and your safety, I ask that those who wish to participate, please send me an email, private message in game or the forum and I will send you my address. Please do not give out addresses to others without getting their permission. [b]Update: The Response has been wonderful! I need to buy some more Christmas Cards! WOO HOO! [color="#FF0000"]Cards Received from[/color]: Shemhazji - Poland, Kets from Texas, Assira the Black, Handy Pockets,Thannhauser from Australia who didnt leave his game name, Capital - Canada Nice Job on the parchment! I particularly was impressed with the wax stamp on the back. [b]Mur: i took the liberty of editing this and suggesting a general event of this kind. i think This is an awesome idea and such card sharing would be something many would love. Imagine getting card from allover the world, because md has ppl from alover the world. Thank you Sagewoman for coming with this wonderful idea. I will add a default PM flag to motivate others to do this too. General ideea is to send something back for each something you receive, anyone can exchange cards, just the start to actualy do it is difficult , so everybody move your lazy a** and do it, pick someone from MD and propose a card exchange, it will be fun.[/b]

  4. I am about to make a major change to how story mode goes. Dont hurry with the opinions untill its done and you take a look at it (yeah i am encouraging alts for this test, but when its done) Plan on short: - when you receive the cube, you will actualy get a customized cube item, with your name on it. - you exit story mode right there and go into free roam - cube can be activated later, and you enter it and see the entire spooky marind story Issues that slow me down: - what happens on the long run, 50k players means 50k new items, cube (as trade item) infaltion will be hight. - what happens at mp4, mp5, will get an other cube, of course not, then how will it go. - what will be the rewuirements and tasks to activate the cube to continue story mode. I am thinking of making it a puzzle based on the awsome device shadowseeker sent me Why? - story mode is way to long for new players - the cube story should have more focus on it, so placing it later avoids impatient players that just hit next. - usage of the cube items might make more sense later. They already exist in rp but not as items, so why not make them real.

  5. that's a pretty good idea lifeline, i had great fun when i was doing the hc at mp4 - i'd prolly get wiped out at mp5, but it'd give a good reason to train some more

  6. But then surely the vets will win again and again, unless you get them to help one person, and it all means that the vets have ALL the power This would be a good idea if the principle of "anyone can beat anyone" applied but it doesnt

  7. On the AL front, i actually found it more interesting with someone else writing it than Mur (no offence Mur ofc), If you were to give them the brief about what they should write i think it would be really good, Your idea combined with their time to write stuff. Its like the MD drawings, You dont necessarily draw it all yourself, you tell someone what you want, and then they draw it with their interpretation. Also this would free up some of your time.

    Storymode Change

    Make the cubes untradeable or put a big warning about avoiding the trading of your cube because of your soul or something like that. Life and death powers over you, like others said and things like that. The cube could be taken away when advancing to the next Mind Power level, maybe some kind of story could be written for it.

  9. i have comissioned a cube puzzle to someone based on shadowseekers device. This will save me some time while it will still come out as i wish it to be. The work is in progress and looks good so far. Storymode rewards will change to percentage rewards , but i have a dark thought to change profiles entirely , by removing attack, defence, and other skills and implement a much simpler and more intuitive way. Dont get scared yet. Once all the things come into place for these changes to happen i will do them realy fast. I will try to do these changes without reseting anything dont wory. It will probably be an automated fix when you login, converting your current profile to the new one. I am not sure what to do about storymode, one option is to move ALL players to mp3 without resetting their stats at all, letting them get overpowered ... this might go well with skill caps on mp levels, an other change i am planning.

    Just because you think you're right, doesn't mean you are. This was FIGHTING. And yes, I do know how to raise just one or two skill instead of all at once. I TARGETED regen and attack because they're the skills I wanted. But it was still all fighting. I attacked the same people for such a long time, in a specific method that ALWAYS gave the same skill, that those skills jumped a LOT. I already told you where to attack. Do that right at a certain point, and you'll just get regen and attack. Always hit there, and you won't get anything but regen and attack. My record does not reflect my win|loss at all. Why? Because when I was made RPC and stuck into the Archivist, I wasn't going to get the 500 wins for the Military doc, so I asked Mur to set that up. He changed my ratio from roughly 180|230 to 501|500. This was mp4, and I only had roughly 1 mil exp. Then I was given the MP1 abilities. The rest is history as I discovered how to use my abilities to gain skills. My skills were NOT given to me. If you actually want to know, I have roughly 98 million exp to back all of this. Why? Because the MP1 ability you don't have doesn't leave an exp cap on me. I actually CAN sac 6 creatures of 2 mil exp each without it setting me back even one bit. Where I mentioned my "best so far" that you quoted, that was after some saccing on a day of relatively doing nothing. The creatures barely had 1000 wins on them, and really the grasan was the only one that even did that. It was also before I really understood how to get regen. Again, after I saw where to get regen, I targeted that spot vigorously. And what's wrong with you? How did I get 4000 wins? How else? By sitting still all freaking day and getting around 500 wins a day! I think I left some permanent marks on the chair I sat there so long. You don't have to go after someone just because they realized how to do something on the fights that you didn't. I'm not lying and am not going to argue this anymore. If you still think I'm lying, kudos to you. You've earned yourself a freaking medal of no-trust. On a happier note, the other day I realized how to raise my stats even faster! Can't believe I missed this before! I could have had...*does some rough guestimations* about 800 regen right now instead of 500. 3000 attack would have been quite fun too. Oh wells, I'll have to do it later...if I ever feel like it. Anyone curious to know how? ...didn't think so. I only know of one other person who could have done it, and now he can't either..

    That regen was NOT done over night. The most regen I ever gained in one night was probably 90 or so. And, that attack was practically ALL saccing. 6 grasans that gave me a whopping total of 1012 attack. They each had approximately 4000 wins and probably 2 mil exp. I don't care what kind of proof you think you have because it's false. I even told Mur how I did it, and he just laughed at me and commented on wondering about that rumor. The regen went up quickly, yes. As soon as I realized at what point it was gained, I started hitting it hard because it was my lowest skill. But it still took time. And it was all fighting, no cheating. Pure knowledge of fighting on my part. So BITE ME and get back on topic, hypocrite. BTW, just watch my attack this weekend too. It'll go up another roughly 200-500 points depending on how much I feel like training. Lovely how you didn't mention Eden's jumping from 2686ish to 3549 overnight. Didn't question how THAT could just be saccing. I have a rather sneaky suspicion that it was done in the same fashion...what's that? ...oh yeah, SACCING.

    New Headcontest For All

    i see, a head contest with almost no participation is preferred to one that is alive. of course new players wouldnt stand a chance in the first months on mp5. but they can just wait and participate after all the vets killed eachother. the current head contest is a shadow of what it once was. i loved the high competition a year ago it was what made the head contest fun. there is no spirit or challenge in the head contest anymore at all. its all about waiting until the month where the least people care to bother about it. u ask around a few days before the head contest starts who wants to win and then u can already decided ok i get my gold medal next month after agreeing who wins in which month. why should the head contest be something that every player just being a few weeks on his MPlevel can win? after half a year the vets will have won and not be able to participate and until then new players had plenty of chance to build up their forces to compete. i dont understand why it needs to get lowered to a level where everybody can easly win without much commitment. make it respected again and a goal that is worth reaching. a goal that is worth training for. a goal that makes u feel like u accomplished something. and not something on ur to do list that gets done when all the competition is out. its a competition so make it a competition again. the rules and all are fine its just the participation that is lagging. a year ago people were proud when they managed to get a silver medal in the head contest. now people get silver medals without even trying and just idling in some remote location. is it not also more fun and interesting for new players if there is a real challenge in the game? something that only the best can win? i get motivation when i see a goal that is really hard to reach and dont even take anything else serious that can be won by not being 100% committed.

    why do u ask for a either or? creatures, stats, batlle knowledge all go together. they arent seperate. if u lag one of those 3 u cant be under the top fighters in gerneral. u are maybe the top fighter in ur category but overall u arent. that either or doesnt make sense to me. and i could ask the same question for roleplay how do u decide who is the best roleplayer? by the number of blue lines he writes?, by how good his writing fits his character?, by how popular he is?, how funny and witty his roleplay is? people will always decide differently and none of these categories are black or white.

    Fighting you say? If you fight all your stats increase and I don't see all your stats go up that that quick. How convenient: only regen and attack went up. And I know how Eden did it but I still think you are a cheater. Btw: you have a warning for swearing.

    last time we had best roleplayer and best pwr which are both purely roleplay and best rpc had a lot to do with roleplay as well. so how about adding the counterpart this time? we got roleplayers and fighters in MD. those are pretty much the 2 biggest main categories. so how about a strongest fighter? or well i know that stat grinders arent liked but its a huge part of MD so there could also be a most excessive grinder or something like that. cant think of any more the old categories are good and mostly still fitting

    New Headcontest For All

    i agree with chewy. most people if they see certain names up in the HC contest its fairly pointless to try. When anyone who plays the game enough to try and compete for a competition sees...ohh i don't know GRIDO:(no personal stab you just happened to be a high ranker in HC ) for example they won't even try. Shadow games only work in stage I which like you said will now be really short. Instead now they have to sit at the GoE where, lets be honest, some vets have more power in 2 creatures than even someone newer has in their whole creature army. Of course, some argue..well that's just mp5 and your fault for not having 6 drachorns. You see the same thing in MP4 and MP3. I know MP3s with 70 days age on them or longer. There are MP4's over a year old and have creatures some mp5s don't have. I understand as well as the vets do about the contest and how isn't fair, but I assure you if people were allowed to compete in heads again you would see a huge drop in the participation by the newer people. Pretty much this post to me says "Let the vets play again" Why did noone in MP5 participate? Because you vets run MP5s off. People, like me, came to MP5 with stars in our eyes thinking we made it to the big time. Just to be trampled and mauled at every moments move by 5 or 6 drachorns. Now, I'm not saying that's wrong or that new MP5s must overcome this obstacle. Obcviously alot of MP5s quit due to this. Happened all the time, though latly I havn't even seen mp4s move to MP5s with few exceptions. Mostly because they are scared to death at the thought of coming to this stage to get trampled on. Why is MP3 full of alts? Because vets are bored of sitting around with their untouchable mp5s, so the make mp3 alts that come along and destroy newcomers. Sure ya start out with the same time and creatures, but with the know-how to tear apart even a fairly experienced mp3. You wonder why the population of MD is down as a whole. simple....VETS The HC is only an example of it. There are many, many more that could be listed. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that all the old school players try to drag the game down. But there are plenty who are...and we all look around and wonder why the population of MD is going down...some blame Mur for all his techno work...some blame the game and its "boring" gameplay...some blame drama and the forum...you know who I blame? The same people that made this game great...the VETS... I blame myself too. I may be 264 days old, but I don't consider myself a Vet. I blame people who walk around and wait for the VETS to do something, start something, get this game motivated and going again. Put a pulse back in it to make it breathe. I blame all of us who have any knowledge of this game. I just try when I play to remember the reason I started playing, the reason I try to create something more...for the days I spent in wide eyed glory of Khalazdad, Ravenoid, King Bull, and many other people who still play in this game and keep what bit remains alive. No clue where this all came from, just now getting over being really really sick for a week. Just been reading all the posts over the past week and building this up.
