I have a little problem here. Why is it the only game ever played is
trivia? I see trivia play often but i never see capture the flag,
newbie race to level 5, whois tag game, recalltag -i know its broken-,
find the flag, or scavenger hunts. We have all the games yet all i ever
see played is trivia. Some of us aren't trivia lovers ya know and its
not something that we like to play, so could the PR immorts please add
some spice to there gaming menu instead of, "Trivia, Trivia, Trivia."

You want to know why imms never run games? It's because of the resulting
behavior of the players when they lose.
A few weeks ago, an immort friend of mine ran a game. During the
whole thing, she kept getting harassing and obscene tells from
disgruntled players who lost.
Gee, if people treated me like that when I gave my valuable
time to run a game on request for jerks like this, I'd never
bother to log on again, much less run a game.
If you want imms to run games, treat them nicer during and after the
game. Instead of going 'this game sucks' when you lose, don't say
anything at all. You're just proving what a complete idiot and
sore loser you are when you do this. Not to mention driving off
perfectly friendly and nice immorts.
Heck, don't harass the imms at all, if you don't like how they do somethin
state it in a much nicer and clear manner than 'man, this sucks', which
doesn't help solve problems at all. How receptive would YOU be to someone
telling you that something you worked on for months 'sucked', with
no other explanation?
I'm frankly sick of hearing people whine all the time, just whine,
without even saying WHAT they're whining about. And, yes, there IS
a difference between whining and stating your opinion. 'This sucks'

Thanks, Shalindra :) I agree.
However, I will be glad to run Capture the Flag
(clanned only) any night I am on that someone
comes up with teams.
If I'm in a good mood and asked, I'll
even run Flag Hunt.
I don't run recalltag because people cheat
constantly and I don't like rewarding cheaters
or even dealing with them.

-nod- run more flag hunts cuz thats the only game which gives
the players who are 'not so quick' and 'not so smart' a chance!

You say to state problems in a nice way, well fine, here it is. Croaker,
myself and many others think your prizes are not worth the stakes in your
capture the flag game. Now i think this game is a wonderful idea, i would
love to play it, but its just not worth the chance of dying. I've seen
better rewards for games where there is no chance of losing anything. I
think to make this game a good one that will be played alot, we need the
prizes up'd a bit or the exp lose taken away from it. If non-clanned can
win stuff and not fear dying, why should we win less then what they win an
and have the fear of dying too. Just my opionon and alot of others i've
talked to. BTW, cool idea Croaker, needs a little work though.

Flag hunts have been run on Legend for at least two years now, and the
prize has always been just coupons... in general, I do not wish to give
in-game benefits (like gold, or eq) to people for winning an OOC game,
particularly one which favors high levels and repeat players in the
way that flag hunts do...
