you knew enough english to come across snide and insulting, to a group of ppl voicing genuine concerns in a civil manner and now you can add another word to your repertoire.

I happen to find your reasons for wanting a merge sound, just the attitude that accompanied those reasons leaves a lot to be desired.

Guys all this angst might be moot…. r2 reps swear there is no merge

Can’t stand it anymore… I gotta say it….loser is spelt with one “O”, unless of course you mean looser as in not as tight, or in condemning the wartune community’s moral standards….

and so, as to remain on topic: don’t care about the merges or no merges, however….. evolve or die has been proven time and again.

Topic: Wartune / wartune login issue 4-13-2013

I’m one that was still able to remain in-game during this second snafu (not so lucky yesterday), however, just tried to do a Spire and loading screen froze for me, my teammate is still seeing me in the room but it’s working like AI.

Regarding the comment that maybe the devs are hoping people still ingame spend money…. lol if that’s their hope then they’re SOL, cuz the recharge kreds is getting the same error the log in page is giving.

DavidR408 you got 300k gold?…… then you must be lucky. everyone I spoke with, myself included got 100k gold (then the daru etc., which is being touted as the over 40 compensation)

Topic: Kongregate / Am I Crazy or is it......

you know something, this will go round and round constantly, because regardless even without delving into the ‘where, why, when or how’ a thing happens, the fact remains that I have questions regarding the integrity of a GM from things that I have seen and heard and yes, have happened to me personally, so truthfully, a bunch of the other players rushing to refute things, does not help the situation and actually it’s the same group of people constantly ‘explaining’, with of course the usual insult or put down. I wonder why that is……

However, in an effort to call my credibility into question, all you are doing is prolonging the agony… and stalking my posts, which is laughable and smacks of an agenda.

I got the answers and opinions I was looking for in random impartial people, without having to go into details, prior to any of you distorting the situation. I already know your opinions, we (senatry ppl), have seen it daily. So you stick with Senatry, I’ve decided to follow in the footsteps of a few others who quit for the same reasons, I’ve opted to go a different route.

1) Thats BS, pure and simple. I have been a member of the GM’s league since before she was there and it has never happened.

2) More BS, the GM does not participate in PVP events or any other event for that matter

3) Adults will do adult things, and sometimes it gets a little graphic but that will happen, the GM is a person too. This is a rare occurance I personally havn’t seen it in a long time. I have seen Andro do the same as recently as yesterday in WC, not blatantly graphic but certainly suggestive.

4) Anyone could see the frustration build to a point that the GM snapped. If you poke the lion with a stick, don’t be suprised if it bites. It was an isolated incedent. It was prompted by a cohort of Andro’s who interrupted a server wide quiz event in WC and when he was asked to take an SS and take it up with the GM after the event was over they continued to interrupt the event by spamming WC with accusations and complaints that the event was rigged. All after he was given the method to remedy the problem. (he was correct and it was made right) This also prompted the GM to develop a new rule for quiz events that is still followed and works very well when there is an issue.

5) it is what it is.

6) it happens on the rare occasion that people get missed, I have seen it happen with people that do not “openly oppose” the GM as well. And sometimes they didn’t earn it so didn’t get the reward. If they can prove they earned it like everyone else, they will get it.

Everyones opinions are valued but the statements you are being asked to comment on must surely be hypothetical because they are seriously exaggerated or completely false.

Boats

ahhhh Boats, not surprised to see your input. Considering the latest events collaborated by the GM herself, I would think you would have hesitated a smidgeon before once again calling me a liar.

2) ps love, DW (domain war) is a PVP event….just so you know ;) and
1) I caught her as ‘last poster’ on the exploits expo, yet when I selected ‘last’ there was no post from her and the last post on the thread was from Sarig or duvvel or one of the “alts”, which means she posted, realized it came up as her name….deleted the post and logged in as someone else (I did it once on lekool when I was on Coolhunk’s account and thought it was Persephone) it’s not rocket science, so oopsy….

3) Adults will do adult things is all well and good if there was an age limit on these games…there isn’t so moderators are hired to mediate the conversational content, not inflame it and I’m never graphic and often try to tone it down, or simply leave when it gets out of hand, so don’t try to defend the indefensible by throwing aspersions in my direction. I’m not a GM or staff having to hold to certain standards, which is the topic of this thread.

4) I would agree with that somewhat, but still maintain that, as a member of staff worthy of the position, you’re held to a higher form of conduct and cursing the ‘customer’ is conduct unbecoming.

6) I’ve seen it happen to others and it happened to me and on every occasion I know of it was insisted the prize was given. In my case (as an example) I was monitoring my chips… I had done a battle and had 4 chips. I mailed my (2) wins for the Legion affairs and waited, I think even you or Don had gratzed me because I got my Pluto finished one of the times. At the end of the day I still had 4 chips… as we are never told what that prize is, I asked Legion, he mentioned that chips were part of it along with silver and something else (can’t recall). As I still only had 4 chips, what does that tell you. I asked the GM in wc when I saw her and she said they were given out, I said that I didn’t think I got it and she said she remembers my name being in the mix and maybe can check ‘backend’, I said I would appreciate it and never heard about it again.

So thanks for your ‘opinions’ on this matter, but I’ve elected to get impartial input from random individuals, who’ve been on Kongregate and in the company of professional moderators long enough to give a clearer insight on what is acceptable behaviour for a GM. Though as I’ve quit playing the game, it’s all moot anyway….. the afflicted will continue to suffer in silence until they leave and the favoured will bask in the self-righteous glow that, everyone is full of it except for them.

VforVendetta thanks again for the suggestions, I was browsing through the huuuuuuuuge list of games here and got cross-eyed lol. I will surely just choose one of yours to start lol.

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Senatry] If you are having Kongregate Problems Try this

http://www.kongregate.com/forums/1-kongregate/topics/310363-if-you-are-having-kongregate-problems-try-this

From JimGreer of Kong
Last night our DNS provider failed. We have fixed the root problem, and will be switching to a more reliable provider.

Because DNS is cached, you may still experience problems connecting to Kongregate, depending on what your DNS server is.

Google operates a free public DNS server, and it has correct entries for Kongregate. If you want to switch to using it, here’s how to do it:

https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using

I followed the steps in the Link and have full access again so if you know of anyone having problems and cannot log in thru the usual kongregate portal then give them this link. Also more options to be found on the Kongregate forum topics.

Good luck

Topic: Kongregate Multiplayer Games / [Senatry] Week 9 Player of the Week

lol unfortunately that really doesnt bother me. there are a lot of things here that get pushed under the carpet due to people being ‘afraid’ to speak up and I’m not one of those. People’s opinions of me has never been a concern as nothing I ever say is a lie. Could I sit back and let things lay as they are…sure. But in the case of these issues, hell no, because this is my down time and I want to enjoy it just as everyone else. People here are sheep and followers and that’s why I applaud everyone that steps out of that mold. So I respect your opinion, I just don’t care that you have one :P

and ps.. classy is relative. there are varying degrees of class and what you’ve been seeing doesn’t fall into that category.
plus when you have the person in charge of the online game you’re playing mailing/whispering people that you’re a liar and giving them untrue information about your accounts etc….. you won’t find yourself being able to sit back and say ‘oh well’. There is a lot more going on than anyone knows about, so I will never be quiet…

Just a thought…..

lol crazy man (or brave)… don’t mess with the lady’s need for an ego boost… if it was only about having events to give players prizes, she wouldnt have made it a point to include GM too in the list of who you can vote for, cuz in most correctly run places you don’t see the GM stealing reward opportunities from players :P

Topic: Kongregate / Am I Crazy or is it......

thanks all for the feedback. much appreciated. I guess I’m not too crazy after all lol.

regarding #5… to clarify, when she’s telling players ‘this is how things are’ I wasn’t referring to the game, but of her actions. If we don’t agree with things she does and comment on it, we get told we can leave if we don’t like it.

regarding #3 about the innuendo…. I was actually trying to not be too graphic. I love a good banter and engage often…. the incidences I refer to are not banter and are not things I can post here. Use your imagination, whatever you come up with is more or less what i’m speaking about. She gets the ball rolling then goes quiet while it escalates. I had to stop my 8 year old godchild from playing this. Senatry on Kongregate never had a problem with vile or disgusting content in the world chat…spammers by the thousand yes….and in those days we never had an active GM…..

vote for TK.Ankit
one of the few remaining original Kong Senatry players, since most everyone has been run off. He’s not around much these days which is a pity, but still a huge presence when he is and caring host. He has done more to keep Scipii in the running than anyone

[Battle][]: tht’s true
[Battle][]: i got cassie and persephone banned

Yes you’re right of course… I suppose if players can get bored then the developers would too. It’s too sad really, this is a good game and some really great players have already left. First because the game was stagnant for months and the players had reached the end and now the game has opened up, new features added, 3 servers merged into 1 and it’s a ghost town. 25-30 people on at this hour and at the peak time only 66.

Thank you for taking the time to offer your insight into this matter :) much appreciated.

Yes I have ad nauseum and have received no reply from the dev, others have reported the GM as well to no avail. I even bothered zShadow and TrickyRodent time and again. Their hands are tied as only the developer can take action, I guess the only course of action is to throw away all the time and money spent on the account and find something else to occupy our down time. I’m glad I’m not crazy to be bothered by this… based on the reactions of some other players, I was really starting to wonder.

Yes people are leaving…. there are now approx. 30 people in the game. This time last year (before we got an active GM) there were over 100. Many, many have left since, I just found it ridiculous that 20 people should leave because of 1

Topic: Kongregate / Am I Crazy or is it......

Unethical if the GM of a game:

1) Creates events where player participation is key to winning, then enters all the offline players via link/login of the league/alliance/guild/family that he/she is a member of

2) develops a test account with unlimited resources, then uses said account to take part in pvp group activities, where defeating opponents results in them losing resources and stunts their forward progress within the game itself.

3) Forms cliques with players and engages in suggestive chats in the world chat, spamming that arena with hidden as well as open sexual references

4) Curses players in world chat when they refer to having reported the GM to the developer

5) Tells players that this is how things are and if they don’t like it, they can leave the game

6) Victimizes players that openly oppose, by not rewarding prizes to events. Then insisting prizes were given. The players cannot prove the rewards were not received.

Is it just me and all of the above is acceptable? I’m ‘old’ to playing the game I do on Kong, but i’m new to online gaming, only played this and one other….. I really need some impartial opinions on this, because when the topics were raised ingame, I was made to feel like a troublemaker.

I will value all opinions to this.

Best regards
