    Did a little web trawling, from what I can find, the decision was made to close it down because it was not financially viable to pay for the licensing cost of the related medium in comparison to the active player base (unique individuals playing, not just characters rolled) .
    Yeah, they drove off the player base by catering to trolls. So they didn't have enough people left playing to justify it's expence.

    Which is not mutually exclusive to the point that there were valid reasons people didn't feel invested enough to invest.
    ...pretty much matches what the... I think CEO, or at least producer, was saying on the starmourn forums. The license cost was mentioned as the main reason but there have been hints (along the lines of... 'the license cost was less than the staff cost' already, and that 'people weren't spending so any license cost was too much')

    We want more PK opportunities!

    More PK opportunities that are not three to one odds :>
  • MaligornMaligorn Windborne Member Posts: 2,639 Transcendent
    I really can't be bothered to play a game that allows this. Sorry guys.

    The dormancy time is 5 minutes on a free domoth that fails stage 1..?  I'm confused by the potential favorability here, this issue was fixed ages ago.

    Stalling a domoth can be annoying but at least it's no longer a "block for potentially 20 hours," just a one hour and five minutes kind of thing.

    I don't think Maligorn's issue here is with the domoth timers.

    That's what I thought too, but I've seen stage 1 failures last for much more than that.

    Maybe I misread, but 5 of the 10 words in his post (half of the words) were related to domoth dormancy timers, and they seem like a modifier to the first half that qualifies / explains why it's bad.

    So if that's not what he meant it could use a little clarification.

    Let's see what happens, if it's not 5 minutes then BUG it because it absolutely should be 5 to address stalling tactics.

    Well. I think we can all wish Tweets a fond farewell. There have been enough warnings that it isn't for rants, but it seems a couple of us are finding that difficult au revoir, old friend.

    I'm not going to be drawn into an argument with you about the actual topic, but he hasn't made a post that is 10 words long so I have no idea what you're even talking about.

    "proceeds to stall out domoth for potential favorable dormancy time."
    ---1-------- 2---3----4-----5------6-----7---------8-----------9---------10.

    If you really want I can clarify to say it was the 10 rant-words of the post, but it's pretty obvious what the ten words I'm replying to are given the context.

    That wasn't his entire post though? Really not sure what your point is.

    At this point you're claiming that he meant something else, he already clarified that no, he meant exactly what I was addressing, and you're basically saying "he never made a post that was 10 words" (which is fair enough, but he did make a post that contained a 10-word complaint which is what I was replying to with the discussion about timers).  So if you want to know who is confused about what the point someone is trying to make, that's me with regards to you. :P

    I honestly can't see anyone holding a (insert whatever you want here) to anyone's head forcing you to play...but don't expect someone to play the way you want them to just because it favors you

    5 minutes dormancy.

    It's still a full hour and 5 minutes of "eff you" though.

    I really swear I've seen Tarken stall out a different domoth and it got an 18 day dormancy. W/e. They've continued to stall it out a different way.

    Versalean going flag happy over here.

    You should be an NFL ref!
    To me you're forever the kick runner from 3 years ago, the guy who does domoths when no one is online and whines that he's got no competition, and the guy that use to only turn up to fights when the numbers favoured him.

    It's almost like people play the game to win and do whatever they have to in order to succeed.


    ....Isn't that the idea behind every single org? Do whatever it takes to control the Basin?

    I attempt to control me, myself and I. Does that count?

    I will insert a "wet noodle" because wet noodles are useless and my addiction to the game doesn't need to be forced <3

    You know, I've played extensively in every org. All of them. In all that time, I don't think I've ever heard any org leader/combatant say, "We probably shouldn't use that tactic because we wouldn't want others to do it to us".

    It's a bit absurd to try and claim the moral high ground when you have done the same things to everyone else.

    To be fair, Glomdoring (and I personally) have done that.  Biggest example: Totemchopping.  Second example, thievery.  There are some things we can mostly agree on in that regard.

    Well, ok. I meant in battles in general.
