Meso is the one I thought you were mistaking Abuzer for yeah. I mistook the cloak because in my head Tor + Scorpion + Dwarf = red, not grey, and grey cloak + dwarf = Salarr, not Tor. Like I said my bad.
Hah. I forgot about Gold I used to talk to that guy on ICQ back in the day. He was The golden dwarf. Then the old golden dwarf. Then I think his last sdesc was The ancient golden dwarf. Could be mistaken on that last one though.
Guy had over 100+ days played and lived for around 6 RL years give or take. He was also Turkish I do believe but memory is hazy. Fakir al Baba I think was his name but I can't remember really.
I just went back a few pages to read this thread. It's depressing that so many people were hating on this guy in this thread. I think some people owe him an apology.
He admitted he twinked hard on abuzer at least and I think those d-elves deserved death. Fucking idiots.
I never did any more than put forth the argument he twinked HARD on Abuzer, which he admitted to in the video. It was apparently even noticed by staff and karma docked as a result. I'm by no means guilt-free when it comes to twinking skills, but he really did take it to a new level.
I will say he gained quite a bit of my respect with that video and accompanying logs.
One thing I will apologize for is assuming his name was just a take on abuser, but one can hardly blame me for that. Though...I do apologize for that, sir.
I do find it to be bullshit that staff would dock him for attacking in the middle of a sandstorm when it's codedly possible to attack in the middle of a sandstorm and there is a skill called "blind fighting". If you don't want players fighting each other in the middle of a sandstorm, make it codedly impossible to fight each other in the middle of a sandstorm. I thought that was already the case when the sandstorm was bad enough, wasn't it? That even correct keywords wouldn't resolve to a target when the weather/lighting was bad enough?
qwerty: and if someone is unexplainably hostile to you for no good reason. Chalk it off to being an asshole and slit their throat

qwerty: All in all, in my observation. OOC relativity comes about cliques, then hostility. As in, players might not care if you offed their previous character. But they might like and include another PC whom they talk to more often ooc.

qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
