Many of the players from all 3 servers already talking about the arrangements behind the VGM event of yesterday. On all Acclaim servers it is know that some of VGMs characters in game got TGW epithet.
VGM event was another compromise event for players. As we got used with events and competitions, behind the players back, some arrange the things in their own interest. VGMs have each other on MSN so it is very easy to communicate. Alliances were made : “I help you in Bardo, you help me in Asura, I help you in Nirvana,you in Bardo”.
The question “can exist power without corruption?” is a rhetoric one. Under one form or another, those “in power” tend to abuse it and this is another case of official team abuse of power.
The beauty of the event grind made some players blindness. In this case, in the form of event made for players, VGMs takes players chance for getting TGW epithet. Certain VGMs takes the key idea of the plan of one and apply it. They helped each other to get for their game characters TGW epithet.
Why Acclaim did not forbid for VGMs game characters to participate in TGW epithet hunt? Was an event made by VGM and for them not for players?
So abuse of VGM power for what purpose? The word “private purpose” hide a trap again. Is not explicitly made “privately”. Would they work so hard for the event if they would propose “the satisfaction of serving a common interest”, the players one? Formula with “personal interests” is an often used cliché, but (perhaps because he is not a cliché to think carefully) it has sense. However “private interest” can serve as a benchmark for their actions.
And it is true, [VGM]Matrix aka chrispower got TGW epithet. So what GMs will do next in this issue? Check all VGMs characters who took TGW epithet and kick them out? Or nothing?
