  1. [Denied] ET Actor CharlieWhaleSheen

    From what I recall of this, it was you providing nothing but salt in teamspeak and most people telling you to shut up. You continually demanded explanations and then called any explanations given to you, bullshit. It finally got to the point where you just weren't getting the message, so, yea, you got banned there. This was after continual behavior too, mind you, not just a one off thing. I wasn't trying to keep my power alive, I was trying to keep my sanity. Sorry you are still so delusional to believe otherwise.

    Bae, too sweet. Cheers mate. How to handle power... It's mineman, my dude, there isn't any power. Authority in decision making, with a community roleplaying server, should fall to the community and I'd like to think I didn't go over anyone's heads too much. As far as compromise goes, I'm perfectly willing to compromise if the arguments make sense. I have to be honest though, I have no idea of what you are still mad about, to the extent that you were trying to jog my memory in game with this as well.
  3. [Denied] ET Actor CharlieWhaleSheen

    Current Username: CosmicWhaleShark Discord(‘You got it’ does not suffice): Guess Timezone(s) you mainly play: EST, or AEST, my schedule is rather odd. What group/nation do you consider to be your main? I dunno they're all scrubs. Have you held a staff position before? AT once, GM once, ET three times. Do you currently hold a staff position? Free bird Do you plan on applying for other staff positions? **** I hope not. Have you ever been banned before? If so, how long ago and what reason? Once in Aegis for stealing gold blocks in Undead territory, and once in Anthos when my brother mistook LotC for a pvp server and started killing people. What style of events do you feel you enjoy creating? (Low Fantasy, High Fantasy, Quests, Dungeons, etc.) Ones that don't suck, depends on the playerbase I'm with and what they want out of the event. List three factors you feel play a part in a quality event and expand upon them. Atmosphere, challenge, and reward. Part of the reason people want events is because they want an experience that isn't like what they usually have access to on LotC. The normal experience on LotC is dialogue, and pretty much just that, with a few impromptu fights every now and then. To break that lull you need to establish the setting, hint toward the mysteries that are to be unraveled by the player, and embed a sense of dread that provides them hesitation and caution, creating suspense as they navigate themselves through a mental set of what ifs. Depending on their reaction to the establishing scenes you can then cater to their style as a player in an attempt to create a more enjoyable experience, or you can lock in the challenges so they may feel prompted to return later better prepared. Challenge is required in order to have players remain attentive. You don't want them tabbed out and watching youtube videos between emotes, you don't want them to waste five minutes because one of your emotes wasn't clear enough and they require an explanation, you want them to be paying attention and planning out their next set of moves, taking advantage of the time it takes you to type. Challenge can be many things, whether it's a puzzle or a threat or negotiating your way through a life or death scenario. It can be anything because you challenge a player when you put them outside of their comfort zone into a situation they are either unfamiliar with, or one that tests the limits of what they are proficient in. Reward is the most important part of any event and in order for players to get excited about the next time you're available you need to give them something meaningful. Meaningful to me, is something to commemorate the experience, something tangible to show, yes, I did this, and I prevailed, that the player can then show to other players' characters and expand upon their development and story. I don't give anything the character can really 'use', and if they do decide to use something chances are it will be rather average. Such as an ancient sword that is in fact rather ancient and will shatter upon strenuous use. Which member(s) of the team would you attempt to emulate and why? Myself, because I'm awesome and there's currently no other team members to emulate that I would emulate. Get it? Because there was a purge. I'm hilarious. Provide three event scenarios, in total, of the style(s) you listed above: I had a pixie and troll event that I used to do. The pixie would whisper in the ears of players and try to lure them away with the promise of treasure. Sometimes there would be treasure and I'd try to get players to turn on one another in order to take a greater stake in the discovery or all of it. This never worked, the power of friendship was too great. So I altered the event to then have a troll or some other sort of challenging but manageable if you weren't an idiot beast reveal itself as the adventurers had haplessly stumbled upon its lair. It was simple, quick, fun, easy to do and I mainly targeted new players to give them a little bit of excitement. Not that it's an original idea but what is now the bounty board is something I wanted to do since the first generation of ET under Native. I did an impromptu test run of it with a hippogriff in the Fringe and had a nest that you could actually visit in the literal corner of the map. Through coordination with Arzota I then had the beast wand its way around on attacks and as it became progressively more wounded it resorted to sticking close to its nest. Finally a group of Marked Men had a, I still really ******* love this plan of theirs, hidden ballista that was shrouded by foliage at the foot of the mountain. They lured it out and when the hippogriff finally dived down they pulled off the tarp and shot. It was pretty great. I've always wanted to do a haunted house event. I've seen so many haunted looking houses in swamps and such and have never seen an event come of any of those buildings, though I'm aware some of them have in fact gotten events. It's not something particularly strict to follow or anything like that, I'd just like to make a Scooby Doo adventure for players, only there's horrible horrible deaths waiting for them instead of Scooby snacks and tastefully hip 60's teenagers. Why do you wish to become an ET Actor Member? Because Mordskov is neato and I'd like to assist these people in the future with their neato events. What strengths would you bring to the team? My presence. What are your weaknesses? People that take staff positions way too seriously. How much time could you give to this position in the foreseeable future? I understand this question but at the same time I don't like it. The event team is different from other teams. You have capable roleplayers willing to spend their time essentially being dungeon masters to provide content for players that higher up staff members fail to provide. Server storylines used to be a thing and now the event team went from being an asset to being a crutch because the people in charge didn't know how to craft something compelling, entertaining, and became too entranced with their own **** ideas to take any feedback and thus the server was subjected to a few several months of general crap because some people thought if you force an idea on people for long enough they eventually will enjoy it. I still don't get why you people think that works. To actually answer your question, I have no idea, maybe a week, maybe a month, maybe a year. The reason I provided all that initially however is because I'm of the opinion that if a member is capable enough to provide events on their own time of a top-tier quality in comparison to shitting out a bunch of one offs just to fill out their quota for a report like they're some ******* cubicle worker, they should stay on the team. If they get burned out, so what, give them a break, there's such a thing as hiatus without being kicked off, don't subject them through having to make another application just to get back on and you will have happier event team members and thus more enthusiastic event team members that make better events. This isn't a company, you do not need to hit a quota for anything and should only be removing people for abuse or just sheer negligence. The reason I stand by this not being a company is because the 'board', never ******* listens to their bottom line. I don't believe content provider positions should be held to the same standards as moderator positions because they are two completely different beasts.

    We're in total agreement then, sorry about the misunderstanding, I think saying that goes a long way as far as how both sides view one another at this point. A bit better than, cri about it
  5. Elytras

    Agreed, at this point it's in the hands of the developers to decide what comes of that. Exploits were in reference to the fact that your group has exploited certain things in the past, thought the boat reference was clarification enough, didn't mean to use a large brush there. Disregarding your use of it, are you still in agreement that it should be removed in that case? Considering your original opinion, I'm curious about that.
  6. Elytras

    For reference I would have been fighting alongside the stukas in this warclaim, missed it by ten minutes. Frostbeard 4 lyfe, bullshit is bullshit all the same.
  7. Elytras

    Perfectly fair, you had access to it, so why not. Mechanical advantages and exploits have been a specialty of your group, so I wouldn't consider that particularly surprising. The gliders work a bit better than boats, no? Technology has come a long way. You're not the only one who's upset with nexus, many on either side would agree it needs changing. The issue at that point is with the developers who allowed these items to be distributed in the first place. Surprise.
  8. Elytras

    I find it a bit ironic that the people taking advantage of the oversight in mechanics courtesy of the developers, are the ones who were for literal years making conspiracy theories and accusing staff of bias against them, when they were losing. As well as taking every possible measure to duck out of consequences and losses. In the end, fair is fair, and a bullshit mechanic is a bullshit mechanic. Being able to fly around in a lag-ridden environment for hit and run attacks while shrouded in diamond plating, I would think, can be agreed by everyone to be rather over the top. The posturing I see here, simply due to my personal experiences, is hilarious. People should take screenshots for posterity for when the tables inevitably turn once more down the road.
