Or staff could set up a notification system that collects a list of accounts that have X amount of karma but haven't gained karma in Y amount of time, then review them and grant karma as appropriate. Y'know, do their job of making the game a pleasant thing to play.

Player priorities are so funny. I could care less about this change.
I feel mostly the same. Oh, some other high-karma gick can spy on me or hurt me in some way? *SNORE*.
I would genuinely be much more excited to see a new city on the other side of the Silt Sea, or a thousand more rooms added east of the Grasslands, or something like that. Something accessible to the entire playerbase.
In terms of code, this was probably just removing the comment indicators around some old code or a cut-and-paste into a new subguild template. Really don't mind some high fantasy magic spilling back into my low fantasy world, but I'd like to see something new maybe.
Staff has confirmed new areas are in the works. There are also a few bits and pieces around the south that are new-ish if you look for them. I too would be more excited by a new city than drovians but hey it's worth talking about
I think the world in general could use some "livening" up. I've posted this before; more random ruins/outposts/oases for people to rest at it. Or fight over?
Deeper ruins that can be explored in mundane fashion. With ... I dunno ... the occasional possible reward for doing it.
I've found a number of ruins in the game now ... one killed me with some sort of magic fog. Another spawned giant spiders on me. Another I just flat out died for no apparent reason. Just boom. Dead. Heart attack? WTF.
The game world is so potentially interesting. It's just not exploited very deeply.
nile: the only apoc drama be on an arm drama website. lol

nile: almost guarantee arm staff are LOVING this. hahaha. long as the game is good fun it's all a bit irrelevant. but the anti-arm crew giving the arm staff some sense of schadenfreude based purely a forum for whining made me lol

nile: Also, been playing Arm again on an alt account (omfg their ban was easy to get around...and tbh i have more fun in apoc)

vex: Bans are irrelevant, and pointlessly antagonistic. The only game I play, where staff address problems with aggression, bans, and down talk, is Arm. The rest have realized, all that results in, is a bitter player, more inclined towards "revenge" play.

vex: Better to incentivize ideal play and behavior, than try and fail to intimidate and leverage empty threats, because nobody is intimidated by an angry elf fetishist on the internet, and there are virtually no threats a player can't circumvent, easily.

baobob: Arm turned to condemnation, punishment and vengeful retribution against players pretty hard long, long ago. Never turned back.
