Topic: Rise of Mythos / GF5 merge with KG4

I said that everyone can post as long as it is a discussion, not a flame war or BS. I had every right in the world to lock those threads and I should have. You were not contributing to anything but have to jump on some bandwagon against me. I am the mod here, not you, and those threads needed locked. Also, stop bringing up the yahoo thing when talking about me, I wasnt a mod then and had I been, I’m sure I would have locked those threads too if they were as you say they were. Also, I never deleted any threads or posts, I locked them.

The thing here is that WE ALREADY GOT MORE THAN WE WERE EVER GOING TO GET due to the threads and complaining and my talking with devs. Now it is just you guys beating a dead horse. I am done discussing my actions with you, I dont have to answer to you. You have a problem with the way I handled it, take it up with Kong or gamefuse.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / GF5 merge with KG4

As I said, those threads had been reduced to flame wars and “I quit” whining. If someone wants to have a positive productive discussion, by all means, go ahead. I locked MY OWN thread for the same reason.

Chopper, you say “doesn’t mean that we can’t try” – I see you trying nothing except stirring crap up and badmouthing me.

You aren’t “trying” anything. I have been working my butt off to balance things as best I can, I fought like hell to get us the 2 rubies that we got. I am fighting FOR you, so please stop fighting against me.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / GF5 merge with KG4

I locked the threads for these reasons:

1. There is nothing left to discuss. Monster is done talking about, there is nothing more that can be done. It is what it is. All the discussing and complaining in the world isnt going to change anything. People need to deal with it or quit. I REALLY wish this wasn’t the case, but I have done all I can do.

2. Those threads were not positive discussions. They were either people from one server bashing the other server or just people saying they were quitting.

I completely understand all of the concerns and 100% agree with them. There is just nothing that can be done at this point. Go ahead and keep posting your “I am quitting” or analysis of why this was dumb. But I will be removing any post that is talking crap about another server and just know that all of your concerns are falling on deaf ears. I locked the threads because there is no point to them anymore, you can think I was dumb and hate me for it but I did what I thought was best for the community and that was to try to get them to move forward (in one way or another) from a bad situation rather than to continue dwelling on it.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / KG-1 merge compensation is kinda bad joke, specially for low vip players.

I am locking all threads having to do with the compensation. It is over, done with. Yes, people are not happy but you are gonna have to learn to deal. I will work on trying to get some silver, but in the meantime, I am personally tired of all the fighting and complaining. Everyone be happy that you got what you did.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Community Discussion] Merge Compensation

IN CONCLUSION:

Originally posted by Monster_GM:

Hey guys, i know the compensation seems a lot to most of the players here. But there is a fact that we have to make GB-S1 and KG-S4 stronger so they can stand a chance when they get crossed with KG-S1. I believe even with the 5 fire rubies, the top32 rank will still be dominated by KG-S1 in the future. The reason we gave such big compensation is we do not want GB-S1 and KG-S4 to stand no chance at all and quit gradually when they are discouraged, like many servers which were crossed with kg-s1 did.

And i understand how frustrating it could be to some of the KG-S1 players, and i apologize that i hurt your feelings because i know a lot of players cannot even get a single fire ruby in the entire game span. I am really sorry, but sometimes we gotta look on the bigger picture, we have to make the cross group competitive.

To even that a bit, we decided to send 2 fire rubies to all of the KG-S1 and GF-S1 players. I sincerely hope it will be a good merge/cross and you guys have fun with it.

Thank you all for your understanding and suggestions.

All compensations have been given and are final. Thanks for all those that provided positive feedback and discussion.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Last ditch effort to prevent Kong 4 merge

Lets try to keep names and name-calling out of it. I will talk to monster when he is on. But I’d like to hear from some KG4 players – would they be upset if KG1/2 receive 2 fire rubies and 5 million silver? (and not saying I can even negotiate this, will be up to monster, just trying to make everyone as happy as possible)

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Last ditch effort to prevent Kong 4 merge

Everyone needs to just calm down. This shouldnt be a fight between KG4 and KG1. We are all PLAYERS, and none of us want to see our server dying. We should be working together to find a solution that will make the least number of players leave the game.

KG1 players – look at things from KG4’s perspective. KG1 has been around longer, has a lot more whales. Their guilds that were used to winning showdown, probably wont now. Their players that were top in pvp will have to work a lot harder. Their casual lower vip players will have to work a lot harder to even get pvp rewards. They needed some kind of compensation to bring them closer to being able to compete. If it was you that had received the comp, you’d be happy too. Don’t blame them for that. Without this compensation I am sure a lot of their players would have quit.

KG4 players – please try to understand that most of KG1 is not the big scary whales. While they do have some uber-whales and strong guilds, there are many, many players that are vip0 and dont have any godlikes yet and still have epic equipment. These lower players are now going to be at a severe disadvantage to ALL of the players on KG4. I am sure without some kind of compensation, these players will quit.

I feel good compensation was deserved by KG4, I think it was a little much, but its already done, cannot change it now. However, I do feel the lower vips on KG1/2 deserve some kind of compensation to put them up to speed with the now ahead KG4 players.

We should be coming up with solutions that will make most of the players on all the servers the happiest. Not blaming each other or fighting with each other. Try to look at things from the other sides perspective and lets all come together to find a sensible solution that will make the most players happy.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Merge Compensation Absurdness

I am trying to work on balancing this out. Please see my sticky thread.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / [Community Discussion] Merge Compensation

I was asleep when all of this transpired, but I would like to get some community feedback and will discuss with Monster later.

I would like some suggestions on FAIR compensation. Please keep in mind – this compensation is to make other servers viable against KG1 and not kill them off. For example, if there were to receive 1 black opal – a single awakened card would not really change the outcome of a match against kg1 players but would make them very happy.

I am also suggesting a tiered compensation system, where ALL vip 0-4 from ALL the merged servers get compensation. Let me know your thoughts and suggestions please and thank you for the feedback!

We are aware of the thread and the issues. All the mods have been talking among themselves about different options, however, we have yet to get any response or feedback from devs. I will let you know if we hear anything!

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Updates for March 25, 2015!!

After speaking with Monster, the few bits of news I can give you are as follows:

1) 1.3hp buff will be implemented tomorrow/today (Wednesday) with regular maintenance.

2) New server merges – they are going with Plan C and will be implemented in 2 weeks after current season is over.

3) I asked about getting VIP restrictions removed from Masters and Kings packs and Monster said he already tried and the answer is no. :(

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Introduction to Your New Mod!! :)

I was giving background info so that people know that I know the game. That I have been on both sides, was never an attempt to boast about my guild.

Would you rather have a mod that has been playing for 3 months in a low level guild or a mod that is a well seasoned player and leader?

edit: oh XD since you guys are such a tight team, how can we be sure you don’t give them more important info about events than the people throughout the servers?

Juggz was originally from snowy fort, but has been with LoA for over a year and helps out with lots of stuff in the guild.

Yes, showdown cp was a big contributing factor to making level 10. I didnt say that the “core” helped make us level 10, I said they helped keep the guild functioning and running smoothly and together (not dead like many others).

And you cant be sure, you’ll just have to trust me (and the other mods that will have the same info I have). ;)

so that kinda defies the “core” part
not that there’s anything wrong with switching guilds, I just like picking apart false views XD

The “core” I was referring to, is not the same “core” you are. I do not consider LoA’s core the whales and top showdown participants. The core I was referring to are players that have been with me through the rough times and for a long time, like OOHNirav, Soleil, Lauraxrawr, Steptome, dgg, cheesecakeluv (and formerly Milenko and Ward). Occasionally, I like to switch up leadership of LoA, these are the people you will find I promote and trust completely. We work as a team.

Yes, I am female, these guys are just giving me a rough time with the “Mister” stuff.

As far as my guild being the “heaviest paying guild in the game”, at this point in time, that may be true, but it certainly wasn’t always that way. My guild has been around basically since the game was introduced on Kong and for over a year wasn’t anywhere near being the strongest guild. There were many weeks we only had 1 showdown team and we had very few whales. Due to players quitting and stronger guilds dying, my guild is now the strongest because of a great core team and ability to persevere. So as far as being “in a wrong spot”, I think the opposite is true. I understand the struggles of rising guilds, being the underdog, dying servers and also understand what it is like to be stuck at level 10 for months and months with nowhere to progress. I think having a perspective on both sides of the coin is the absolute right spot. :)

As far as the rest of your questions and concerns, I am working on putting something together for the devs and will get answers for you as soon I as I possibly can. Thanks for all of your support!

sigh guess my assumption was right after all :(

If players want to tell their VIP status, that is their business, not mine. Thats all I was saying. And, no, I do not understand their struggles firsthand, but I am around vip0s in my guild every day and am willing to listen to the complaints of the other vip0s in the community.

@tomdo99 – I will do my best to get you guys a week by week list of upcoming updates and events. This, of course, will all depend on the devs.

@Creed – Thanks!

@Chopper91 – I am not going to post a list of names, if those players would like to step forward, that is up to them. Try to remember, we have 48 members in LoA and I doubt you’ve ever even heard of half of them.

@TheRock – Yes, I would.

Hello Mr. Ralkkdillon. Can you please ask the Devs what their favorite colors are? Also, can the Stony Ruins server get some form of compensation for the pvp inactivity I experienced, which was directly caused by the ill-advised de-merger?

Hello Ms. OOHnirav. Thank you for your questions. The Devs’ favorite color is green, for obvious reasons.

The pvp inactivity you are experiencing is due to you always responding “NO!” or logging out when someone asks you to do 2s with them. And never attempting to do 1s. You will not receive any compensation, my apologies.

Topic: Rise of Mythos / Introduction to Your New Mod!! :)

I just wanted to introduce myself to those of you that may not know me.

In Rise of Mythos, I founded and am leader of the #1 guild, Lords of Avalon on the oldest RoM server, Stone Ruins. Our guild was the first to reach level 10 and we are still going strong. I am VIP9, but have been essentially a free player for about 9 months. I know what it is like to play as a “whale” and also know the struggles of being a free player. There are also many VIP0 players in my guild.

I am a veteran moderator on Kongregate. I am a mod for the Tyrant forums (formerly the most active game forum on Kong) and have also been a beta tester/consortium member for Synapse Games for years. I worked closely with the developers of Synapse in making improvements for Tyrant.

I will do my best to keep the forums clean and to communicate anything to the players that I am able. Feel free to PM me with questions or concerns here and I will try to reply if possible.

Please keep in mind I am just a liaison and will have to ask questions and wait for answers just as you do. Feel free to ask me anything below if you have questions. Thank you and I look forward to improving Rise of Mythos with all of you!
