Cotillion: Trying to be a bad ass but didnt come up with a reply sarcastic enough.

Actually, this is probably closer to the mark.

Petros: Players complain when things are unbalanced, therefore things must be way too unbalanced. Time to figure out to nerf things.

On a separate note, all the wizards listed above contribute more than you can imagine to the game. I would keep disparaging remarks at a minimum because if there's anything more discouraging to a wizard, it's to read these comments after the hours they pour into the game.

I know.
I was having doubts whether to write it or not, but couldn't resist.
I really hope I didn't offend anyone - it was intended just as a joke. Only thing I know about Tapakah is that he's always online (just like me). We all know (?) Lavellan is working hard with... everything. And Gorboth is the one who keeps me from doing too much damage (by nicely asking me to please not do some of the things I've been doing). And you were the only one left I could think of, so you got the boring quote that was left.

If any of you was offended by this, I apologize. It wasn't my intention.

Uther: If you actually took the time to browse through the notes posted Gorboth has already say I agrees with the vote and that they will try to figure out a way to make this happen.

Petros: I totally get you, allthough I think if you posted a few updates about what you are working on we mortals would feel more encouraged too. When Gorboth posted updates on how the imbuements where doing it was motivating. He said things like "this part is done", this one is "50% done", etc. I think its easy to make such comments if we have no idea what you are working on. Because at the moment we dont.

The recodes of the guilds had regular posts with updates before, but some year ago or so it stopped and since then we have heard absolutely nothing. Is it still going on at all? We dont know. Cotillion is AoB but to be frank all he does is like Chanele said, post sarcastic remarks here and there which doesnt motivate anyone. A better idea would be to perhaps mention now and then about how the balance process is going, what is being worked on, and what the goal is... well anything. As it is now its not a very balanced game, half the guilds are recoded, the other half not, some guilds are very powerful, some unplayable, etc, and even some of the recodes guilds have had a lot of people complaining too.. some type of word on this process would do tons to keep your players more motivated and more happy with things, and perhaps less willing to complain.

The webpage has been "under way" for the last... 3 years? 5 years? All we SEE is nothing happening. Even if things are happening we have no idea about it. Gorboth did mention it being "worked on" and that some designer was involved, this was some time ago and after being directly asked, but we dont know much more. I have personally volunteered to help out with it, I made maps, but Takapah replied once a year ago saying it was nice work and he should check it out closer. Then nothing. I then volunteered to help out with any graphics, but latest attempts to help out has also been met with utter silence. Other wizards have replied though, sharing their ideas which is noce, but not the Arch of web. The point of it being I think its no wonder he gets a reputation for beeing sleepy.

So yes, I totally get its no fun to see sarcastic notes from mortals about that you are sleepy or doing a bad job... but you gotta give us something too. How are we supposed to know what you are working on, if you are working, etc? All we see is the game and the webpage.

And the game is not very well balanced. It has very few players and many are unhappy with things. It has a webpage that is far from updated that probably scares away more people than it draws in. That is what we have, and what we players see.

Anyway, hope you get what I am saying. I have tried being a wizard, I have tons of respect for every little thing you do. I just think it would be good to keep the wizard section a little updated on the forum too, hearing you are working motivates us, and you will most likely get less of the sarcastic notes too.

Actually, I'm the AoB. This list of Arches may help you know where to direct your requests:

AoM (mudlib) - Mercade
AoG (gamedriver) - Cotillion
AoP (players) - Gorboth
AoW (web) - Tapakah
AoD (domains) - Gorboth
AoB (balance) - Petros
AoE (events) - Stern

I take full responsibility for all balance issues. If there were something interesting to update about the guild recodes, I would certainly do so. Unfortunately, the state of things is such that it is simply a slow moving process at the current moment. Guild recodes are, however, not the only balance issue in the game. Genesis has always faced balance issues in one way or another. I would actually make the assertion that despite there being a sense of imbalance between recoded and non-recoded guilds, the game today is far more balanced than it was 3-4 years ago when we started this.

I wasn't trying to be sarcastic! Honestly!
It was just meant as a friendly joke.
I'm sure Gorboth won't take offense to my remark of him. The one for Lavellan is actually a praise. Tapakah... the only thing I knew is that he is always online, and then you have to be idling a lot... probably.
And to make myself really unbearable... Petros, according to "help wizards", Cotillion is Balance Arch. So maybe that help file should be updated?

Is that the source of the confusion. Silly documentation. I've updated it to more accurately reflect the reality. Thanks for the heads up.

Well Petros, I can see a quite horrifying unbalance in some of the recoded guilds aswell, some are really nice in balance, Dragonarmies for instance, we dont rock but we dont suck complete donkey ass either, in comparison to some. AA seriously needs to get a special that hurts more than Donk. And there are some guilds that are not balanced that still rock, Ogres, Shadow union for instance. Alltho SU cant tank and ogres are dumb as bricks :P However the int aint really a drawback :P
