    [b]Making Heads contest a contest[/b][b] again[/b]

    As most know for a while now HC hasn't been much of a contest other than for occasionally for first place, though that spot usually is taken from the start as well. Lately it has even become harder not to win if you haven't already than it has to win.

    Therefore I have a few suggestions as to how to make HC a little harder:
    -Make HC only available to MP4+, as MP3 can't really fight fully yet anyway, or perhaps make it MP5 only.
    -Reduce the amount of winners to 3 per category.
    -Reduce the amount of HCs to 4 per year, one every 3 months

    With this there should at least be some increase in competition in the long run as the amount of competitors gets more concentrated in one place.

    No HC on MP3? All right, one less event for us... there is plenty we can do anyway. To be honest, I was working hard to lose those heads at the end, so I can maybe win the next contest... but well, this HC turned out to be not much of a contest. (Thank you Quizok for the long hunt in Phase 1, I enjoyed it very much:).) I am not sure forcing us to MP4 helps. Really. Personally, I am looking for fun.
    By the way, the other MP level contests were different, more active, better? I was checking the contest log all the time... I am not sure about the answer.

    Do not force us to move on to MP4. Please. Give us time and fun.

    Edit:
    Thhe main point is work on HC to make it a contest again, not the way how this should be done.

    Tom- As BFH mentioned, there is somewhat of a "filter". Magicduel is an experience, and it's really not right for everyone.

    Focus: More long-term quests. Ones that require planning, not the 1-day activities (I'm not saying they are bad). Adventures, so to speak. Maybe ones that a group/alliance/land has to complete as a whole. Things that will spark creativity and are open to interpretation.

    edit- I came right when the AL ended, so i'm not entirely sure what that would entail

    [b]Dynamic land loyalty[/b]
    One of the things I would like to see changed is the way people gain land loyalty. Currently the way to gain it is be joining an alliance from a specific land and after that all you need to do is make sure you log in from time to time and it'll keep going up.

    While this is a nice start and does give some indication of a persons loyalty to a specific land it is very limited. For example someone who joins a land only to damage it or it's people still gains loyalty and will keep it for all eternity, while someone who does help to protect the land or in some other way helps the land, but is not (yet) a citizen of that land gets nothing.

    While this might not be the most important change and I'm not certain how it should be changed with the growing importance of land loyalty just time isn't enough.

    [b]Make tools more avalable[/b]

    suggest: (in order of preference)
    - remove requirement of loyalty for all tools not of kind of land defence
    - make more item that gather material or process material avalable for citisen without loyalty
    - make tools that require no man land loyalty ... (its the only loyalty a new player can get ...)

    Well, I am newbie... and here is my opinion, I hope you can use it somehow:

    In the beginning, it is awesome. The idea is great... and there is a lot to learn and see. Fyrd's riddles, quests, new friends, minions and Mystery... all is nice.
    There could be more quests which can be finished before Loreroot. (Maybe after the MD Summer Fest we could leave some.)

    After a while (reading some forum topics) you have the feeling that there is no goal, and all is pointless. Unfortunately, it is _not_ the same as the "You're on your own now, good luck." text in Morrowind. You feel robbed.

    Giving me the option to get free money is nice (with APs and so on), the MDShop is well constructed, I used PayPal several times.

    The first real shock, a real BLOW came when I got capped at MP3. On day 12 I could enter MP4, but I wanted to wait and see... and I had to find out that I cannot train my minions anymore.
    I think it would be nice if we could find some more information about heat cap and its effects early.
    So... anyway, the real nightmare has started at day 12. I was trying everything to find a way to reduce personal heat, and warned all my friends immediately (one has left already, the other comes in for some hours, trying to find fun.) Naturally, as I was looking for a solution, I found new friends. Result: everyone is afraid of getting personal heat (Cyclicity, bah...). The best example was the HC, when only the capped played it, and the others were hiding or asking to attack them giving no heat. Interesting.

    Everything else is alright... I wish I found this game before, when there were more players around.

    Remove or lessen or put way of newby to lower viscosity

    Suggestions either:
    - either remove viscosity all together
    - make Energetic immunity stat conter the viscosity
    - make another way easylyavalable for newby to conter or totally neutralise viscosity
    _ make it so that one can easyly get citisenship of each lands at will, so his loyalty gain for each land counter viscosity and gain access to tools to make wealth

    Hight viscosity completely ruin some quests
    Hight viscosity make exploration of MD only avalable to players with citisenship to many lands or wealtly to have thea cups or other mean to get more ap

    Viscosity is one off the main deterrent for newplayers and even me with my small 105 active day having vote often, find it almost impossible to explore tribunal for exemple

    [color=#ff0000][b]Hee guys why put negative rep on that post? You dont like new players?[/b][/color]

    Rhaegar has every right to be angry, that's not why I mentioned him. What has happened between us personally has no bearing on what I've said about him. My words mean exactly what they say, and that is this: Rhaegar has not helped the negotiations at all, and has, in fact, hampered them. I get no enjoyment from stating this, and I had hoped to gloss over it by writing it in such a way that it lead into something more positive, but I'll be selfish before I'm as petty as you'd like to think I am. I've been on both sides of the forum witch-hunt and I am not about to take a run at somebody just because I think it'll be funny.

    maybe because he steals alliances, laughs at the people, and then makes them beg for it back? Then acts all high and mighty like he did them a favor for taking the alliance
    [/quote]
    Has anyone begged? I am certain that nobody from Marind Bell did. From CoE, all I wanted was a good solution, same thing I wanted from KoB. What did I get instead? Accusations, hatred, threats, etc. I expect anger, yes, but I also expect cooperation, and I admire the people of Marind Bell so much more because they gave it.

    Also, it has been said to me, by Marind Bell citizens, that taking KoB was actually a good thing for it. It's not my business to say who, as people can be judgmental about such things and there are enough arguments already. So, bring on the flood of disagreements then, let's have a good old fashioned flame war in a topic that's meant to be happy, just because someone doesn't like me.

    You pick at Rhaegar for your own enjoyment and act as if you have morality on your side and expect people to bow their heads and offer you cooperation. Your actions caused the reaction, dont try to belittle it as if it is some sort of personal issue. You made this bed.

    Emerald Arcanix and I have worked out a deal regarding the return of the Knights of the Bell, wherein I will remain in the alliance offering my assistance where I can. I would ask that any concerned parties regarding this action speak with me by tomorrow, as I will be inviting Clock back into the alliance then.

    I would like to, at this time, note that Rhaegar has been less than facilitating in these negotiations and were it not for the willingness to cooperate, in spite of the situation, that I have seen and heard from all other Marind Bell citizens, especially Emerald, this deal would likely not have happened at all. I congratulate Marind Bell in its capacity to deal with this, and hope for a better future.

    tankfans reacted to Tarquinus in Regarding the CoE badge being in the wrong hands   
    Pipstickz, I want to give you a chance to show that you are not a mean-spirited kid with too much time on his hands, but you're making it hard on me with these inflammatory posts which you immediately have locked. I think it's time to discuss something in a calm and mature fashion: how you came to have the CoE badge and why you choose to keep it.

    We, and by we I mean tankfans specifically shared it to the Loreroot Citizens forum, have a PM from Child of the Soul that seems to indicate that you plotted with him via Pipstickz, your primary MD account, or else in person through another means, and instructed him to "give control" of the CoE to your Lord Pip account. Here's my question: do you deny this? Do you deny that your only significant use of the Lord Pip account in a very long time has been to gain and keep control of the CoE?

    I think the issue of alt abuse has always been a bit fuzzy, and despite my attempts to create fully fleshed-out, different personalities for each account, I have been guilty of things that are considered alt abuse. There was a recent announcement, however, (announcement 2221) clearing things up. It said, in part:

    [quote]You are not allowed to use an account to aid any of your other accounts. This means you cannot sell creatures on one account to give the profit to another, nor are you allowed to trade creatures or items between your accounts.
    More generally, you are not allowed to use multiple accounts to help, benefit, or otherwise influence one specific player for their gain or loss.[/quote]

    It seems to me that your use of the Lord Pip account violates both the spirit and the letter of the rules about alts.

    I have chosen to work toward regaining the CoE badge through in-game means - when I said I thought that if we couldn't regain the badge through merit, we didn't deserve to have it, I was not merely spewing rhetoric. But I feel that I can't let your posting about why you will continue to hold the CoE badge without making any real use of it go unanswered. You surely realize you have upset people and made the game less fun for more than one person. You must be aware that your posts, particularly the second one in which you admit that Poe made this remark to you "quite some time ago", make you seem vindictive, grudge-bearing, and judgmental.

    My personal inclination is to continue doing what I have been doing, which is to let you keep the badges unmolested and make no out-of-game or meta-gamed attempt to "bring you to justice" or otherwise regain the badges through out-of-game channels. But I repeat: I can't sit idly by while you make these inflammatory posts. My "followers", by which I mean my friends who play accounts that once wore the CoE badge, are beginning to think that I don't care about the things you say and have no plans to get the badges back. I am aware that not everyone is as patient or as open-minded as I am (that should scare you, eh? ). It is for my friends' sake that I write this post.

    So I will ask you once more, civilly and publicly, to give the CoE badge back to the guy who worked to create the CoE and the woman who drew its badge, and let us restore the alliance to what it was. It's the decent thing to do.

    One of the corpses is my slave, and I find rude, defiling and many other things to even dare move him around like a trophy.

    Let the bodies rest at GoE, where anybody can visit them, interact with their spirits and pray for them. Stop using your leashes on them and let them be. If a resurrection is to happen for all of them, have them all in one location not scattered all over the realm.

    Thanks all!

    I've run short of sand but will resume distribution tomorrow when I get refilled. Sorry if I've not responded to all request, send them again tomorrow.

    Many thanks already to the helpers: MRAlyon (sand, jars, heat), lashtal (sand), Amber Rune (donated glass from her stock) and all others who bring a little something in the basket, whether it's a gift or a kind word. You give me energy for one more year.

    tankfans reacted to Passant the Weak in Free glass distribution to celebrate my MD anniversary   
    Hello!

    Today I am 365 AD old.
    When I first opened a MD page, I had no idea I would still be here after one year. This is due to the quality of the realm and of course of its inhabitants.

    To celebrate that, I will be holding my 2nd Glass distribution. It is very simple: I will give away Raw Glass to whoever asks me, provided I have some in stocks.

    To do that, I hopefully will get help from GG people who have commited to help me by giving away free sand.

    No particular rules in the glass distribution, except common sense: priority goes to new players and people who never got sand from me.

    I can't be active as much as I wish, so please be patient and try to find me around Tranquil Plains. You can message me ingame (not on forum please), but you better ask me when you see me awake, as I am a bit clumsy with MPs.

    Duration: not set. Expect a few days from now.

    Thanks!

    The Eclipse has long been interested in liberating KC, long before our badges were stolen. We might have only just now gone public with the matter, but that doesn't mean we've only become interested now.

    This topic is about liberating Knator Commander and how that might be achieved. Our motives - and who is the "official" Eclipse - are irrelevant questions. Please stay on topic, or I'll ask a moderator to relocate the sniping and side-discussion to another thread.
