    tankfans reacted to Tarquinus in Eclipse revitalisation   
    It seems my presence in the realm is wanted. I shall return to it more frequently, so.

    Before we begin any plans, however, I would like to hear from all persons who still consider their characters part of the Children of the Eclipse. Please post days and times (server time) you plan to be active in MagicDuel.

    I will be active around 04:00 - 06:00 most weekdays, perhaps a bit longer on Fridays. I will be available from 20:00 - 10:00 (the next day) or so on weekends.

    The purpose of getting these times is to coordinate actions and events. Please let me know what will work for you.

    Whoa. Being killed for the 5th time? How many people get to experience that?

    3 more times and we can call you a cat. Nine lives and all. You can finally challenge dst to a cat fight. Fair and square. :3

    tankfans reacted to awiiya in July 1, 2012 Council Update   
    Happy July, Folks of Magic Duel,

    I bring you the first Council update:

    [b]Community garden[/b]: The garden now has a subtitle and the Council has sent further requests to Rumi. More details likely to follow in the coming weeks. Remain active and involved.

    [b]Revival: [/b]The Council is discussing another revival method. The concept will be broken down into smaller chunks so it can be implemented piece by piece, as the revival process is going to require a number of stages and is rather complex. Ideas should be directed at the appropriate forum board.

    [b]@magicduel email:[/b] Fixed.

    [b]Avatar team: [/b]Working out a few kinks.

    [b]LHOs: [/b]Work is under development to prevent new players from getting stuck.

    [b]Under discussion: [/b]Cauldron items, translations, heat voting.

    And additionally, a coding update:

    [b]Summoned Army:[/b] Fixed.

    [b]Citizenship: [/b]Progress has been made with the general design and the voting function.

    [b]Assorted: [/b]Manda's keys, numerous spelling fixes and corrections, Phantom Orchid's item.

    Until next week.

    I like puzzle quests. They test your logic skill and you don't need to be very knowledgeable in any aspect.

    I don't like creative quests where you need to draw or write stories/poems. They are very very time consuming for me, might take me weeks or months to accomplish.
    On the other hand, each part of a puzzle quest can be solved at most in a day, I think.

    I hope the quest instructions are clear and we don't need to find a certain person to talk to (timezone is really a pretty big problem for me). Hopefully, future quests will be coded in clickies. And the quest starts with hints on the passwords. It would be better if the password have some hints on its structure (i.e. the number of words, format, etc).

    [attachment=3963:lot.png]

    Post your offers here.
    Bidding ends June 29 11:59:59PM (GMT+8) or 24 hours from the last bid of a lot, which ever comes first.
    *Total price is rounded up to the nearest whole number.

    Update:
    Maybe this will make things clear:
    1. If you want to buy everything except lot #15 (with the total of 30.32 SC) for 31 SC.
    2. If you bid 11SC (which is the total of everything from lot #1 to lot #15) and no one else bids after yours, then everything will be sold to you by the end of the auction.
    3. However, in the case where there are individual and bulk bid containing the same lot, it's up my jurisdiction to whom I'll sell the lot/s.

    Hope this makes it clear
    I like to make complicated things

    PS: 0 SC is acceptable for those without Min Bid

    Update 2:
    Lots #9 and #10 are bought at buy now price.

    Chewett, I've gotten over 30 pms from players stating what I did was the right thing.

    It's amazing how long it is taking the community to revive it's beloved Wookie.

    Perhaps you aren't as well liked as I thought.

    Perhaps I should have killed Grido, or Handy? O.o

    We know people liked you enough that they gathered to revive you.. perhaps a suicide is a good option?

    My first instinct towards all this mess is - adapt, gather together, brainstorm, do it yourself, work around it.

    But that only works up to a point. And I'm thinking this may be that point.

    [i][u][b]COUNCIL[/b][/u][/i] I'm tired of your silence. Do something or wait for the consequences, it's your choice. Just because Mur appointed you doesn't mean we can't overthrow you. By the time you get around to things, they're no longer important. If you can't commit the time to your job, then step down.

    And I don't use bold/underline/caps lightly. I'm angry.

    I don't follow you, Chewy. Shouldn't bother with what? My opinion is and always has been that talk is not enough.

    My post was mainly a reply to Pip, I was under the impression he was saying there is no point doing anything if the council are too busy/lazy to check things happening. I also agree with you that talk and specifically this post, will not be enough

    If there is anything i can do to aid the alliance, please feel free to ask me for anything.

    I will be honest. I have not been active recently, but I was absolutely disgusted to log in and find that the once 30 member-strong alliance: The Children of the Eclipse, the thing that I and so many others had put so much effort into was disbanded...

    Due to lack of members?

    Was there not a request placed by Pipstickz to the Council to have the member count reduced so that it could be returned to us?

    I have chosen to try one last time.. to give one last small effort toward regaining our alliance.

    I petition that the Children of the Eclipse be returned once and for all to the members who worked so hard for it to be what it had been. Please post if you support this effort. I know it is a stretch, but I believe that there are those in the community who would want to see the Children of the Eclipse alliance revived and returned to it's founding members.

    Please post if you support this effort.

    There has been some frustration among CoE players about the loyalty mechanic and some negative undercurrents in the MD community in general. That said, I think Lord Pip's coup did much to awaken us to our disconnection from the game, and more importantly, its "reality". I am not talking about "roleplaying", as much as I like it, but about the nature of MD as an experience, as allegory, and as a means of communicating in a different way from what you usually find on the Internet.

    In my view the CoE still exists. It doesn't have official status (i.e. a badge), but it started without one. Several people have shown that they still believe in what the CoE stands for, and I think it is time I came out of my semi-dormant state to show my support.

    But this is more than a matter simply of popularity. There are two issues: belief and focus. As to the first, we believe in fairness, the sharing of knowledge, and the development of [i]character[/i] - not in the sense of a character in a game, but in the sense of a person's ethics, behavior, and beliefs. As to the second, I have felt for almost a year now that the CoE has needed to change its focus with respect to the reality of MD as it has been revealed. We will show you entertaining (we hope) characters on the way, but I think we should examine what "the moon" means to MagicDuel and why the sun never sets. The CoE is not a collection of cultists devoted to a rock floating in space.

    For a time we were the largest alliance in MD. There's no reason that can't happen again. I fully support Amoran's petition, but I would like to say that I appreciate the idea that changes happen in MD because they are earned.

    So if you've done it on MP3 you can no longer do it at the other MPs. Many who win on MP3 don't even really know what they've gotten themselves into. (Yes I've seen MP3s getting asked if they want to win the contest by just staying at the GoE knowing little more than that they'll get a nice price.)

    People who would otherwise win on MP3 will now have to participate at MP4, so there will be more participants at MP4.

    Those that knowingly participate in HC usually are those that would move up afterwards anyway, If only because they get capped during HC. So is it better to have a player killing off newbies for their heads or hiding in some remote area, and move up to MP4 afterwards than have them move up a week earlier?

    But the most important thing is that HC isn't a challenge any more because there are just to few participants to fit 12 spots.
    [/quote]

    So if i understand instead of having a mp3 cap that is suppose to be stroonger that beat yournger mp3, it will be cap mp4 that is suppose to be stronger that beat younger mp4?
    ... seem to me its not a good change , remove chance on one player to chose to try at mp3 and force to do it at higher level ...

    By same reasonning, remove it from mp4 .... as its capped stronger mp4 that pick on younger less strong mp4 .... force it to be only mp5 ...
    then why not alltogetter remove it ... instead only keep boss head contest ... that way it will be only eon winning and no one else win

    (sorry eon, i dont pick on you, but only illustrate that you are now the stronger player ... and you will probably remain at this position for a long time)

    I'd like to see more achievements.

    Maybe for hitting certain level of stats, for visiting certain amount of scenes, for visiting a scene a certain amount of times, ext.

    And make them ALL accessible with hard work and determination.

    Some, like the Spell Doc one, isn't even possible anymore.

    LHO, is not available to 95% of MD.

    Not the most urgent thing ever, but make creature age worth something. Magic ctcs and treasuries both allow for keeping of creature age, but it doesn't do anything (except for leveling). It was mentioned this was going to happen eventually.

    Provide a "caplike" / "not caplike" switch as a selectable option at will for mp3

    [b]position "not cap like"[/b]: as it is now for mp3

    [b]position "cap like"[/b]: one could not add experience personnal, and to his creatures, and win to his creatures
    adversary in combat would see same as now, as if they fight a cap player

    i didnt neg reped yoar post, but imo its still bad idea, why?

    yoar suggestions will lead to make md faster paced game, well md is meant to be slow paced game, thats all i can say about yoar suggestion

    it isnt problem on what ya suggest, rather is problem that ya suggest change on wrong way

    viscosity is god given thing and it should have been there since beginning

    makin newbs move faster, makin newbs gets items easily will lead to as i already said to faster pace of game, and also make alts again more common, with recent restrictions, alts are nuw used minimally, only few of us remained who actually play alts without havin them for some profit but rather for our own joy, so i dont want to see folks usin alts to go here and there faster, nor would i like to see fresh alts hoardin shared items

    and also, why would newbs move faster anyway, thats somethin that comes earned by veterancy or by trade (tea), that suggestion is equal to "hey lets make genetically modified babies that will run marathon before they start crawlin"
