Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

Then again... Arindal didn't make it so... I'm talking out my ass (but I could also be correct), I think Arindal was paying DT a licensing fee so they needed to make X amount of money to pay that plus pay for whatever the server costs were. I think Arindal shutting down had more to do with that tha...

Re: v1042 discussion

I would change my tune and say keep it closed source if it prevented "cheating". I'm quite certain that making it open source would make it easier to create cheats, but I think Pengy is specifically talking about seeing into the image/sound files and or into the world's map/layout. For example, if ...

Re: 2nd Portal or Precise Cloud Movement

I saw this when I came to see if there were any updates on CL, but since I know a little about the topic I'll give a brief comment. a) I've felt, for a long time, that more clouds/portals exist somewhere in the eastern mountains (perhaps even finding the original mirror castle). It's probably only a...

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

I'm not going to go into all the things that CL2 could be or should be (aside from saying Mobile Clanlord seems like it might be a pain for all involved.) Frankly, I think people hear "mobile" and instantly throw in a bunch of preexisting ideas and beliefs (like micro transactions, shady purchasing...

Re: Clanlord 1 and Clanlord 2.

Many of the people talking about how they wouldn't have any interest in CL2 are the same ones who said they wouldn't play again if Clanlord had a rank reset effecting all players. I think you hit the nail on the head. Why would changing the lasties system to just a tag and "hunted experience" syste...

Re: v1042 discussion

Said a bunch of great stuff First, great post with a great assessment. I just want to make my "2nd argument" statements more clear. I'm not looking to make a spiritual successor to CL. I'm saying that CL had no future without completely rebuilt clients/servers/world builders/account systems (Which ...

Re: v1042 discussion

A bit of a reality check: DT is not going to save the game - I'm not sure anyone at DT even knows what the hell is going on with the game (I'm not even sure DT is more than Joe or even a real company anymore). Unpaid GMs aren't going to save the game - they've already done more than could be asked o...

Re: v1042 discussion

Please keep in mind that I already stopped playing for all the reasons described in the news announcement... Pick a date and end it. The reality is that sooner or later something will break and you simply wont be able to log in anymore. If I were still playing, I'd much rather be able to say goodbye...

Re: Taking a break (probably permanent)

The difference between you and me is I'm still playing, and you're talking about giving up entirely. The difference between you and me is that you might honestly believe that is the only difference. Don't criticize those of us who play any way we can, because we're the life this game still has left...

Re: No More Portal Moves

Just for clarification: I took control (put myself in charge of) the portals about 18 months ago and since then I've been moving the portals every two weeks. To do these moves, I essentially have to agree to not use my teleportation marks for anything else but this task. I've always gotten help when...

Re: Taking a break (probably permanent)

People are just trying to squeeze out whatever enjoyment they can at this point. I don't fault the playerbase for wanting to have fun - I very much understand and agree that people should do that. What I fault (some of) the playerbase for is not looking past their share count, rank gain, or lasties...

Taking a break (probably permanent)

CL is simply not fun or rewarding for me. Some of that is the community (or lack thereof) and some of that is the (what feels like near complete) lack of development combined with the fact that exploration in this game is code for "tree humping for years on end in the hopes finding something new." T...

No More Portal Moves

As of 16 May, I will no longer be moving the portal or in any way be responsible for the portal's location (it is currently in the CD). I only started doing the moves because I wanted to prevent drama and try to benefit the community and frankly I'm tired of dealing with it. A big thanks to all the ...

Windowz: alt-fkey macros

Anyone else having problems with these? I used to use a few of them for my shieldstone/armor and I noticed today that they weren't working anymore... I don't use any of these very much so not sure if it's new to v1k or maybe a storm or two before (Or if they work for other people then it's probably ...
