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?

lechuck: most players who can string a sentence together have left for games where such a skill is actually recognized as an asset

mehtastic: The amount of Armageddon refugees I've run into on MUSHes is staggering. You can tell because it takes them 5 minutes to write "pose nods" around players who are belting out a paragraph every 2 minutes, then you ask them OOC and yep, they fled Arm.

mehtastic: On the flipside, I've seen a few former Armers in places like Arx and After Earth (which is an RPI) who are definitely there because Armageddon's quality dipped in the past 5 or so years. They usually reference Tuluk's closue as the reason why they left

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.
