A Humble Request for an Apology from Administration
Yesterday, I was quietly being a good Oren boy and removing the locks and items from tile_91, so that it would be nice and clean for the new region owners. Now, I did this, of course, under the warrant and promise of nation leaders and mods that a one-week halt of conflict was in place on tile_91, and also because there was a war raid cooldown that said, "Do not commit hostile action within this region." With the Sky God's protection, I carried on evicting my things. In the middle of one of my trips, and with an inventory of chest goodies, this happened:
I got Dwarfed.
Now me, being a good boy, kindly asked these fine gentlemen, and goodest of Urguan boys, to wait just a moment for a /modreq because I was under the impression of mah boi Nectorist that I was safe for the duration of the week's notice of eviction:
Now, I had contacted the most buff of santas, Buffsanta, who had picked up my /modreq, but he had to eat chicken tendies or something so he passed it over to Snacko. After waiting for a good 15 minutes or so, Snacko informed me to carry on with the roleplay, and that conflict was allowed. Trusting Snacko, who is a good mod-boi, I thanked him and carried on with the roleplay with minimal ooc distractions, having accepted the just verdict of Snack-boi:
And then this happened:
However, despite this, Idontmatta told me that the roleplay should not be voided because it had already happened, despite the broadcasts, and to carry on with the roleplay. I tried to argue my position as best I could, as I felt it unfair since I was told by multiple people, and it was posted in the tile that there was a cooldown, but he ignored me and did not respond:
Being a good Oren boi, and not wanting to waste the Dwarf's time, as they had already been waiting for quite a long time, I quietly submitted to my fate and continued with the roleplay that, at the time, I assumed would lead to my death and PK. Feeling I had been wronged, HaraldMarron from Oren came by with two mods to explain that there had indeed been a forced-mod peace on tile_91:
Snacko and Buffsanta argued that there was a raid cooldown and that the roleplay should be voided (Snacko had been wrong), however at this point this had been drug out for an hour, and I didn't want to be unkind to the Dwarves by voiding the roleplay after two mods (Snacko and Itdontmatta) told them they were OK to continue, even though they went back on it.
However, Itdontmatta superseded both mods and told them the roleplay was to continue, and not only was it to continue, but Haraldmarron, who had come over oocly to explain the situation, was now apart of the conflict roleplaywise because he mechanically walked over, which resulted in the Dwarves being teleported back to kill Haraldmarron irply by Itdontmatta, who then escaped because Haraldmarron is slippery ninja in PvP-default.
I carried on with the roleplay, all the while being rammed with messages from multiple people from Oren telling me void the roleplay, because I am a good boi, and I followed the moderator's orders.
All in all, I feel this was handled very poorly by the staff as a whole, and I would like a formal apology from the administration, as I feel like administration handled this situation incredibly poorly. I feel a simple, "We messed up," would go a long way into rebuilding trust between players and staff.
