Good text, Ethan.

I can see some people doing this, but I can see people also so attached to old characters and stories that keep the game boring, always doing same things, always fighting same battles.
We must keep our minds open to new ideas and to change our chars when its possible so the game stay interesting for everyone.
I must to say I admire Lorgan and Fingolfin for that kind of attitude. There are others players with same behaviour and this is what keeps the game healthy.

Helpline / How to add more gold to bounties?

I see as a adventurer that some regions have a lot more than 10 gold as bounties for advies, but, as a lord, I cannot put more than 10.
How people do this?

Fingolfin is not in this list?

Cren, I believe that you did right reporting it, but you shouldn't (and no one should either) insist on the matter.
The titans will do what needs to be done.
It was a bug exploit, Tim said. It is fixed.
Roleplay it as a magic event and move on. You (and no one either) will gain nothing worrying about this. The game will not role back. Nothing good will come from asking for a punishment for that player. If he/she is a cheater, he/she will cheat again and will eventually have a punishment at some point.
In mean time, we have fun playing fair :)

And the death of Elicia put the Windblacks at 12th place of most famous families of BattleMasterra  :D

Congrats on that Cren :)

Why Fingolfin wants a scroll of youth?

Alan could try to find my Breastplate of the Foolish :(

They still keep me busy. :D And probably will for at least the next 16 years.

Make it 30, or, probably, forever. You just need to find time for your interests.

I try to be at the game as much as possible and when I cannot, I leave my chars doing nothing at some safe place till I can play again.
I need to say the last years didnt allow me to play as before but I have good times anyway.
I learned to enjoy the small things and don't expect too much but I am lucky to be in realms that give me good times very often.

Just one thing: Tim doesn't need to help anyone at IRC. He does it because he like it. If he didn't help Atanamir, it was clearly because Atanamir bugged him too much.

Some people assume that if someone else does something voluntarily, after some time it becomes an obligation - and a right of those who benefit of it.

I can understand that some players can be disappointed with the Titans decision and that they will left because they don't trust the game anymore.
In fact, this was your reason to leave, wasn't Menethil? (I am glad to see you here).
But think a bit if this is a really good reason.
Try to take out all the emotion off the table and see whats left.

I thought on leaving at the time Jason left, but I had the time (and good sense) to think more about what happen and at the end I could understand why the decision of the punishment for Alex was taken and even not really happy with it, I accepted it.

Those players leaving, seems to do not want to accept a decision that was taken and this, for me, is unacceptable. This sounds like emotional blackmail for me (not sure the expression is right, I've used google to find it).
Two of them are known for constantly pausing chars, D'Este and Kalkandelen. Erdogan had even deleted his account after Asena died so I am not sure they count.

Märt, Blue Star, Evi and all others that are Alex friends. Think a bit more before leaving. Try to see all what happen from the other side and try to see that Alex had more than enough chances and I bet he still will have one more, to come back with a new account if he tries.
I know I will be very sad and disappointed if you all leave too.

One more thing. I think that one reason that makes BM awesome is that you can actually improve it because you can be heard, and you can suggest improvements but this doesn't mean that if you don't agree with something it will be changed.
This can be one reason why some people left. Just thinking about it now while I am writing.

I have not had time to read it before, and did not even know that the discussion was going on, but I'm glad that to happen because I believe something like this event needs to be talked about openly, or he will remain a ghost, haunting us forever.
I've been busy this past week and even paused a few characters. Among the last messages that I saw in the EC was one sent by Alex, one OOC message saying something about me and it was so unimportant that I could never imagine that that message would start this mess.
Now I had read it all, and I am sad because more people left the game, and others are angry about all this.

I am sad to see Alex go, because he is a old player, obviously dedicated to the game, someone that was a reference for many players, but also someone that was so involved with the game to a point that he harmed some people.
I was sad also when Jason (Dobromir) left the game. After this, Alex and I never talked again. He knew I did not like what he did and we had a silent agreement to keep distance.
I choose to play at same realm as him to try to see that other Alex, the one that is loved, great strategist and etc., and I need to say I was not disappointed with him.

Recently I started a topic to thank Tim, Tom and the devs but specifically Tim, for the WI and his continuous work at BM, that allow us to play this awesome game. I started it after reading some OOC talks from some players, including Alex, where they insinuate that the Titans and the devs had favoritism for players or realms.
What I was trying to say is: If I play this game, and I trust you to be the developer of it, I trust you also to make the rules, and to make decisions to make the game better, even if this means that you will ban someone.
I am posting this again here because I think this is the main point. In all those years that I play the game, I never saw a unfair decision by the devs. This last one, is not unfair. Is strict, yes. Is definitive and I am sure that is hard for them too to see a 10 years player going away but, they gave him more than one chance to change.

What is important now is that, if Alex love this game as much as I believe he does, he can try to come back, with a new account and start over. To start over is not a issue, and shouldn't ever be a issue to anyone. He did a huge investment in his family, did he create a awesome char? He is more than capable of creating a new one.
Is not easy, I know that, but is not like he is really dead, right?

What I believe is important, is that we need to try harder to separate IC and OOC and try to play each char as a totally new one, leaving behind the old tricks and failures of the old chars. Also try to give to the other players a new chance, every time we meet them IC. We still have this huge eye over here to remind us that we need to play nice with each other.

I can imagine how hard it is for everyone that invested so much time on this game to see the numbers of the database going down, but, I am sure, they do everything they can to change this. What is important now, is to help them to do this.

I have read many times, many complains about Tim, Tom and Devs. Rarely times have seen people thanking them for the hard work to keep the game running, and for improving it.

So, thanks Tim, for War Island, for all you do for us and for your great effort to do this, even after so much complaints.

I do believe you do your best and so does all others devs.

I know you know that those messages complaining about fairness and so, should be deleted and ignored but is never too much to say how much I admire what you do and that I trust your judgment. I know you can be wrong sometimes too, and this just makes you human. It would be really weird to have someone perfect moving the strings :p

I think the only way of this to work is to have some players to be invited to act as titan so no one will ever have chance to not be accepted, but instead, some chances to be invited.
