That is part of the "madness" to which I was referring, yes.
More than several years--for some of us, Qt3 had been our regular hangout for a decade. The idea that everyone is just supposed to shrug and never speak of it again seems weird to me. Especially when the speaking takes place in a very tiny number of easily avoidable threads. When folks pop into threads like this to complain about all the Qt3 talk, I have to wonder: why are you reading the "DAMN YOU CHICK" thread in the first place? 99.99% of BrokenForum threads are 100% Qt3 talk-free, but this one obviously isn't.
Bit it was the raison d'être for this place. Lum revived this forum specifically to serve as a refugee camp for the Qt3 exodus. I don't see why we should pretend otherwise. That said, I do agree that BrokenForum has grown to be much more than that. But again, it's not like the forum is filled with kvetching about Qt3--it's all limited to a couple of designated threads while the vast majority of the forum just gets on getting on. Seems about right to me.
I assumed the guys cared because neither relationship was meant to be "open".
Hanzii, clear this up for us!
The chick dating two dudes was actually mine, and one dude knew (or at least he likely knew, he was not quite truthful about...anything) and one did not.
Hell, even if this one thread built specifically for that purpose out of thousands we can't even stay on target for long - just look at the posts before and after Ben's.
DAoC alliance drama is forever.
I was the ops manager for the English DAoC servers in Europe. I could tell you soooooo maaaaaany stories.
All you DAoC guys, please stop teasing and deliver.
Was GOA really as cripplingly incompetent as we players all suspected?
Also, I think you were in the same guild as me, twice. Order of the Knights Templar on Albion/Prydwen and Purple Warriors on Midgard/Excalibur. Hi!
DAoC was a mitigating factor in my divorce, but I later met my now SO while playing it, so it all worked out.
Somebody needs to create a Tales from DAoC thread.
My story :)
Most of you probably got the memo but we now have an MMO drama thread for all your schadenfraude needs.
Man, the only EQ guild get-together I ever went to involved like three ruined relationships, one attempted rape and my best friend selling me out twice, first for some Kelethin strange and then later to an angry ex-husband.
I'm not impressed by your DAoC stories, but this does not mean I would ever want to be involved in them. Eeeeeffff guilds. This is why when I joined a guild in WoW I looked for one where DKP ruled all and no one was friends or interested in getting to know one another. They were reasonably successful with zero drama. It was refreshing.
I was trying to find this thread again and I went to the obvious place, the MMO forum. Nope. Tried PC games. Hmm. Drama Llama? Wrong again. Well, at least I can click back on this thread and figure it out. Oh.
We were crippled mostly by the fact that we had to work everything out outrselves and we had little to no support from Mythic (at least for DAoC, things were better during the WAR beta). Our TOA documentation for example was one of the online player guides that we'd copied wholesale and annotated with monster indices, and database references so that we could unstick broken encounters. Our GM handbook was written by giving one of the QA guys a sandbox and a fully flagged account and telling him to go wild with guessing at GM commands and syntax. Every time we discovered something new we had to forward what we'd done to him so that he could add it to the documentation.
My main was Chretien, Avalonian Paladin and eventual guildmaster of the Order of the Knights Templar on Prydwen. I played a bit with PW on Mid/Excal because I was friends with Svartmetall (at one time we shared a house together).
I also have a few DAOC stories!
Tell us about launch day tools,
ugh. Ask Kotaku about that one. I posted in the MMO drama thread!
Because Brett is an asshole.
The other guys I think were just genuinely curious or did not quite understand the full details of the matter.
Aww Bill, still all hurt that I made you look like a fool? I just assumed that was something you were quite used to, being what you are.
madkevin, prior to watching Rashomon one may also want to read a few brettmcd histories!
Brett, the only way you have of making someone look like a fool is having them respond to your posts.
You are so bad at this sort of thing. Just go back to concern trolling Sanctum threads, Babyman.
For the record, this is one slam after your final straw. Enjoy your 7 day vacation and spend it determining how permanent it will be.
Man, I have no idea who Zen is. I can't even say I remember seeing a post by them. But 76 posts and only 1 like? It's a wonder it took this long.
I see you haven't been reading the Topia Online thread. It's, uh, something.
Like the game, the thread features permadeath.
Some day I'm going to stop being surprised by how very thinskinned people can be when shilling for things on the internet. I keep thinking that "must have thicker skin than an insensate brick and be more even-tempered than the Buddha" would be a job requirement for any attempted viral marketing at all.
Might this become the most liked post in the forum?!?
No, that may be
IainC 's epic takedown of brett in the Hiatus thread.
We probably have to discount Angie's posts for fairness to the rest of us, though.
At the risk of getting a temp-ban myself, has Brett been up to something nastier (other than his usual fairly lame attempts at flaming) than what I'm seeing here? Bill calls brett an asshole, brett calls Bill a fool, and brett gets banned?
And can he be permabanned for just being infuriatingly stupid? Is that a thing?
Not at all - at last count, Dan Lawrence's grand unifying weeaboo-grognard post was over 60 or 70 likes, I think.
Why would you get a temp ban for saying that? Why would you even think you might get a temp ban for saying that? What's wrong with you?
Battered poster syndrome, Raife. Recovery takes time.
