Topic: Wartune / Strip Stun

Replace stun with heals, replace stun with block, replace stun with crit… in any of these instances, and you will still have valid complaints about cheapness, honour and the like. Before stun, in group arena, I would hear things like, oh if that mage only didn’t heal at the last minute we would have gotten them, or the other team, we’re better than you if you didn’t have a healer you would be dead. Same could be said of someone with high block, or someone with high crit, don’t even get me started on how people are about sylphs and the lack of parity between cashers and non cashers. Stun is just one more part of the game, it is no less honourable to use it as it is to use any magic we are given with which to try to win.

I recall an argument on here a while ago where it was being discussed if plundering in the wilds was honourable, because you didn’t get to actually defend yourself when someone was plundering you, and unless you were online at the exact moment, and able to spend your gold really fast, you’d lose it, and people were arguing that it was dishonourable to plunder others. On my server, it’s led to hardly any plundering, and most of it currently is done when both sides agree to it, and they spend their gold first, and strip to make it easier. That’s kinda not really in the spirit of a pvp game, but it’s not more or less honourable to do it that way than the player who chooses to use the game mechanics as intended. You could even make an argument that NOT using the provided options like stun, plundering etc, are against the spirit of the game, but players are free to play as they like, if they choose to use stun, it makes them no less honourable than someone who chooses not to. It is a pvp game after all, and many choose to use the tools provided in order to live, not a thing wrong with that.

Topic: Wartune / Exp Reduction

It would of been nice to get back that extra exp from each level I had that was reduced would of probably put me very close to 80

This is what they mean in the maintenance post patch notes where it says: “EXP Books will be sent to players who have already leveled to 70+. (EXP Books will be sent after May 8th’s maintenance and may take up to 2 days to be sent to everyone.)”

so yeah, you’ll get it back.

I get about half of my posts deleted and I don’t even know why. I’m constructive and well mannered in my posts but may be very opinionated and have a different view from most. In would be courtesy if someone could please explain why stuff gets deleted.

you have 371 posts and less than 1/10th of them are deleted, 3 of them are not from the Wartune forums. Some posts you requested to remove yourself, some were nothing more than :, some were very off topic and just fighting with someone else in the thread, and some had little more than “shut up” or the like. All your posts that were relevant, that were not harassing other users, even opinionated, those that were on topic, and even many that were not on topic but that were nonetheless something that would add to the community or the discussion at large, were not removed. If you have any complaint against any particular post of yours that was removed, pm any of the mods and ask, we can see who it was that removed it, (none are ever deleted) and if we agree that it should not have been removed, we can, and we do, ask that they be unhid by speaking to the mod that hid it. I’ve noted before, that the flag system goes into a group that ALL forum mods on kong see, and sometimes all they see is something like “harrasing other users” as the reason for the flag, or “spam” and while it’s getting better that mods are not modding other forums, sometimes in seeing the post, out of context or not, they agree with the flag and hide it as requested.

I hope this explains it for you, as you asked.

Topic: Wartune / Strip Stun

I agree with you on that KS but have to add with regard to the “Just my opinion, but skills/runes that keep a player from acting are a fairly cheap way to win; you’re not winning through being a better player, just through having an advantage the other player doesn’t.” the same can be true for any skill or item, I may have higher level gems, or better gear than someone I fight, and if I paid for them, it’s even less me being a “better player” but I either spent more time in game or spent more money. Better is really hard to show, it’s clear when you are sure you’re gonna lose and the opponent chooses the wrong skill, or throws one that you anticipated first and countered, but it’s really hard to determine someone is better just because they won, even if they do or don’t use mire rune or hs. (fully my own opinion, others may disagree)

Topic: Wartune / Can't Update Flash Mac OSX 10.5.8 and Linux Issue with White Screen

Yeah, tech team says the game’s not supported for less than 11.4 now, so that leave the linux players and those like you who can’t update, out in the cold. You’d have to find a way to upgrade in order to still play.

Topic: Wartune / Troop Enlightenment

From what I recall the last time this was asked, a lot of players answered along the lines of if you’re a patk, it becomes patk, if you’re a matk, it becomes matk. Do you really need something official? It’s been tested by the experts already (you guys)

So what are we supposed to do if the Evil Unicorn has already expired? I’m assuming taking a screenshot of that won’t do me any good. Do I still submit a ticket anyway?

Submit your ticket without the screenshot but include details about it and explain that in the ticket. They can still find it.

Topic: Wartune / Cannot log in

This started before maintenance for some players and seems to be mostly Firefox users, though I did talk to one opera user with it. Changing to another browser seems to be helping people. R2 platform is redirecting some just to redirect message., and again, Firefox users. Not sure if there was any new updates for Firefox? Or flash even?

Topic: Wartune / Can't Update Flash Mac OSX 10.5.8 and Linux Issue with White Screen

I’m still waiting to hear about this issue, it’s also affecting players running on some versions of Linux that don’t have the upgraded flash yet. Asking players to try using the pepperflash embedded within the Chrome browser to see if they can get it to work with that, and you may need to disable your other flash in order to do so.

Topic: Wartune / [Announcement] Bugged Evil Unicorn Issue compensation

Hoping that won’t be the case here taj, but there are a lot of players currently making tickets, so you will need to be patient. I’m hoping the devs can just resend the comp to those who should have gotten it, rather than make them go through every ticket one by one.

and FWIW with regards to the original post saying all players… I read it as all too, not just some, further down the page it had a sentence telling players who had the mount that it would be changed to only seven days, then further down it said what the comp was gonna be, so yeah, I was expecting it to be for all as well. It was changed to only those +20, and it was also finished with the exact compensation. This is why they have us post the “please keep an eye on this thread” bit, because yes, things can and do change.

Topic: Wartune / Can't Update Flash Mac OSX 10.5.8 and Linux Issue with White Screen

Seems the browsers can sometimes disable the flash players when they upgrade, because it’s an archived version that is no longer supported. Seems you’re gonna want to try using Opera if you have an Intel based system, and if that’s not working, see if your flash is disabled. There’s some info here on it not being supported and how to reenable it if it’s been disabled: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5271

This guy also claims to have a fix that might work for you, if you’re on a PPC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCrAKhv3R_c. It’s basically your version of flash, with a modded certificate saying it’s the updated one.

Use these at your own risk, this is not from R2, or myself, I have no idea if it’s gonna work for you, but I googled the issue because I am still waiting on an acceptable answer for you.

Can you watch embedded youtube videos like people link inside facebook?

Okay, not gonna get an answer on this tonight, if I get one before maintenance starts I’ll let you know. I have NO idea at this point what could possibly change with the info on the mount in the blacksmith shop, I was under the impression that it had the correct info on it, so we’ll have to wait till I either get an answer, or we all get one ourselves.

Topic: Wartune / Missing Card Hunt Event?

Originally posted by weee5067:

See, this is just showing the difference between a good mod (you) and a bad one (R2_Community). If you have the same information, why did R2_Community lie in her post in this thread?

Note that she says twice that there was never another Card Hunt event, even though two were up concurrently (and she deleted the second between when I posted this thread and her response). Why is she incapable of admitting that she made a mistake in leaving the second event up? Why didn’t she replace that post with “Turned into Great Card Hunt” instead of deleting it and denying the post ever existed?

Okay, first, she did not lie in her thread, it was the accusation of her lying that had me even look into it. (and I dug, the info I came up with, no, neither Community or I had it beforehand) Second, there never was another card hunt event because the event is still the same one, it changed yes, but there were never two. As to denying the post ever existed, I’m thinking again, her denying that another event existed is what you’re seeing, as there is no hidden post there. (we mods don’t delete posts we hide them fyi) Are we different kinds of mods? yes. I do more of the community rep on here, she does more of the event posts. We could swap if you like, but that would mean you’d need to wait about 5 hours later for me to post the events that she does because I normally sleep at this hour when the go ahead to post goes up. It would also mean that the stuff I do while you and I are both awake, you’d need to wait a few more hours for her to get to cause we have different sleep cycles. That’s a very good thing.

Thread has crossed the line though now, hiding a post and locking it, I’ve talked to R2 about the events, I’ve given you the answer I have, the thread is about a missing event, not about bashing someone who volunteers her time for you guys.
