Even if this bug existed for 100 years and some of the past GMs allegedly said that it can be used (please provide evidence), this does not mean that the opinion of the GM team cannot change and that GM was absolutely right in allowing the use of the bug. I admit that at that time, having that information about the bug and its use, the past GM team could approve its use, but now the time is different and a new choice is made based on new information. And I remind you that the choice was made after discussing this problem with other GMs, but for some reason everyone thinks that I alone did everything.Lestat wrote: ↑Wed Jun 29, 2022 7:02 am And you missed the part where it's a handful of players that can cause this intentionally.
The rest of us are at the mercy of chance.
Also the majority of the player base has become accustomed to this "bug" that has existed for OVER 5 years.
I never said GM had ability to change game mechanics. I do however believe the GM job has gone beyond it's original function.
GM job is enforcement of rules. Now it seems choosing what game actions are punishable is a part. Choosing to punish players for an action that's been in game longer than most GMs seems an over reach of power. All because some players cried when their kills ran away. Or did they cry because, like me, they can't create the "bug" ? Only I don't get mad or upset someone else knows a trick I don't.
If it's to make the "outcome" more equal, then the point of pvp and points is useless and should be removed to all except clans. Where pvp and all tricks were once said to be "excluded" from most other aspects as clan wars and resourcefulness (figuring how to outsmart, maneuver,and beat your rivals) were encouraged. Now pvpers(who learned their techniques from clan wars) are being punished for the same things we were told were ok.
We were told by the former GM team some years ago, that if game mechanics allowed it, it was ok to use. But also, if something new happened after an update report it. The unfreeze issue was around with hobbit. A group of us tried without any regular success to recreate it, with Hobbs there monitoring it. Afterward it was deemed fair to use. Now as the GM teams change, the mechanics that were once ok have now become bugs.
You can't blame and/or punish people for playing the game the way we have played for years. You can't allow the newer players dislikes change the "rules" after years of allowing. This isn't like sharing/selling accounts. It doesn't give a giant unfair advantage and it doesn't cheat anyone.
I also want to compliment your logic. That is, before that no one decided what actions are punishable and this is not the basis of the work of GMs? Every action is considered magically and no GM makes a daily decision. In addition, the text of rule 8 summarizes all violations to exclude possible abuse with impunity, but according to your logic, everything works somehow differently
Some GMs don't understand us. There is an anecdote.
Nasreddin Hodja (teacher) fell from a donkey one day.
People gathered around the teacher.
They said to the teacher:
Sir, shall we call a doctor?
The teacher said, “No, the doctor cannot understand my situation.
Only the person who fell from the donkey understands the state of the person who fell from the donkey.
