  1. Extremely pleasant, smart and level headed individual from every time I've interacted with them. 100% has my support.
  2. I sign as a gnome enthusiast, if you'd have me Chuck.
  3. ((Honestly, throughout the war, these Imperial battlefront posts have been my favourite to read so far. I normally skim over RP posts, but I've read each of these in their entirety. Great work on them all, and great work on keeping up an active RP/PvP playerbase throughout a rather dire and hard to work with time.
  4. You can not claim an event. You schedule a time and date to do it and attempt it. If someone is able to do it first, then it's fair game and that's their attempt. You don't get to lock it down, just choose a time to attempt it.
  5. er... i dont think you want to read my logs...
  6. I've already stated you guys can continue building along the street up to the palace (which you guys have already done a pretty good job of so far) with LC - the Dwarves built their **** with LC so there's no reason you shouldn't be able to. However, someone didn't change the build perms in the Jburg region despite me saying this, and they messed it up or something. Feel free to ask for them to fix it and give you LC to build SENSIBLE defences. I'll be home to moderate them and check on them most nights and will remove anything I deem too 'good' for lack of a better word.
  7. Never really knew you, but you worked hard as **** to deliver the Orcs from "HUR DUR PVP SHINIEZ" to a nation that did actual RP, and built the foundations for good Orc RP that we have today. Take care.
  8. I really thought this was real, and I feel very let down now. Consider applying for real some time Joey.
  9. ((Take care pal. Hope life treats you well.
  10. Now, whilst the threads and polls I made didn't actually achieve anything immediately, it DID let us look into why 1.8 weapons can not be implemented right now. Due to being on the 1.9 client, the default weapon mechanics - the sword swipe attack and the axe shield break - that are present when you attack with a full swing bar will always be present. What this means is you'll constantly do AoE, high knock-back attacks with a sword and constantly break shields with the axe. This doesn't make for healthy game balance, so I can understand why we can't just 'put them in'. However, there is one other weapon type that hasn't been touched by this - war hammers/pickaxes. They are not intended to be a weapon in default minecraft, so are only used here on LoTC as a recognised weapon. Thus, my suggestion (the idea came from teegah initially) is this: We implement a new type of craftable pick axe weapon called the flail. It has no swing timer and has 3-4 base damage on this. The maximum percentage you could acquire would be 80%, so paired with sharpness, it can be just about as good as an iron sword at max damage. This way there is a low damage, 1.8 tier weapon that people can use if they wish, without affecting any of the major 1.9 features. This isn't a huge thing to implement, if what I've heard and learnt from talks to coders/devs is true. It'd just be a crafting recipe that could be implemented. ^ im also cashing this in
  11. Or the Devs could just re-code and balance some stuff out to make the effects weapons have 1.8 compatible and balanced. This is just a small work around to try and get them in quicker, rather than waiting a few more months for the full thing. It also lets us get a good idea of balance from 1.8 compared to 1.9 a little too, which is good prep. for the big update.
  12. I suggested this waaaay back before we even switched, but it's a weapon based thing rather than a game rule.
  13. This was the plan that Kowaman and the Dev team had for the future blacksmith rework, just that this is something to bide players over until that is fully released, whilst keeping it simple. So yes, completely right.
  15. As the Loyalist and Rebel forces continue to battle for control of the unstable county of Lorraine, it is not so easy now for the Imperial forces to simply siege Ostwick. WARCLAIM Tier chosen : Tier 1 Type of battle: Open field / Skirmish. Date And Time: Saturday 14th of January, 3 EST. Side A: The Holy Orenian Empire. Side B: The Rebel alliance and their allies. Location and boundaries: Terms of Victory: Which ever side is left standing shall be the victor. Upon Victory For... Side A: The recently turned rebel farm next to the area shall be reclaimed and may be fortified. A siege on Ostwick may also occur. Side B: The recently turned rebel farm next to the area shall be secured and may be fortified. A siege on Metz or sensible movement further out of Lorraine may occur. Rules -No gapples -No status swapping -No breaking LoTC rules -If a side does not show they forfeit
  16. I was given permission to (this is approved by Tahmas) and was asked to make this poll, to make sure my straw poll on this thread was fair and not cheated: The thread above explains well my reasoning as to why I want to gather this info. Please keep in mind, this is an official poll, and it is important that you vote upon it, as it will determine whether or not you use the type of combat you desire. Please feel free to comment feedback below. Please vote! Everyone's vote matters and is important!
  17. internet denial threats are p serious...... might be looking for a warn.......
  18. I... really can't say. I briefly talked to 501 and some of the other Devs (save for Kowa) about it and I really don't know what's going to come of it. I may have one more final thread to try and get some sort of makeshift 1.8 weapon in the game before all of them are released in, but I don't know if it will work.
  19. That analogy doesn't work, as everyone on LoTC uses PvP at one point or another, as we're all playing Minecraft.
  20. Why does it matter who gives feedback? This is a server-wide change, so it should be right that the server-wide community is able to give their say, no?
  21. (((((in reply to the status update))))) @Harold what did he mean by this?
