The VGM forum hides the rules which we don’t see. Here we go :
* Deco: Lead VGM’s can request Decos for the VGM’s beyond what is available at the vendor. Instead of many various VGM Leads going back and forth with the GM’s, all information must come through the Head VGM [Iron] for this. VGM Leads submit the information for their VGMs to him/her, and it will be requested from the GM’s.
VGM[Iron] is still hunting the VGM team, even now Bella rule it. I think she forgot to edit that post. From this we understand that a VGM enjoy the privileges of a coin purchaser (deco).
# Roars: GM’s will generate roars for each of you. The request must be routed through your Team Lead, who can either contact a GM directly – or pass the information to the Head VGM [Iron], and s/he will handle it.
Another privilege of coins purchaser (roars). If a VGM wants to communicate something she or he roars. If Acclaim give them a tool, means that indirectly part of Acclaim company. If they are why they are not listed in TOS like coins providers, for example ? This is a very sensible issue.
# Weapons: Weapons are allowed. But, no Weapons will be generated. You will need to acquire these from your Team Lead or a Mod, who will purchase it from a vendor. Or, if your super nice – a Mod might have something they acquired from a drop or be willing to farm it for you.
So Mods always were in here and they intoxicated us with cheap sentences like ” MODs and VGMs are separate entities” . Why they mixted then? If you are “super” nice, a MOD can give you his or her “remains”. VGMs pick the remains of MODs. This is funny. So in others words you have to obey to a MOD to farm for you, to talk to him nice and kiss one of his or her part.
GM Contact: You are not to contact a GM directly for boosts, roars, equipment, gold, or any other items. Direct those requests towards a Team Lead and/or the Head VGM [Iron].
So VGMs can acquire gold also. As I already pointed in this blog, you can farm with a VGM character. So if you are a VGM you are the owner of what in game a regular and coins purchaser player has. Not bad.
# Skills: No Clan specific skills allowed for any VGM, at any time. No exceptions whatsoever. If you currently have skills, you must contact a GM to have your skills and stats reset, as each VGM Character MUST be a Vagabond.
The VGMs can’t have clan skills. All is good till here, but they impose one choice : Vagabond.
# Items: You are allowed weapon, healing items, roars, gold. This can be only given to you via a Team Lead.
Because of the above, they fought over team leader position. As a Team Leader you have a lot.
Fighting (Self Defense, Monsters, PVP): No VGM is allowed to fight any player except in self-defense or to correct a behavior that violates game rules. This should be a last resort.(attacking a VGM is a bannable offense) The player MUST be warned prior to any action. Take a Screen shot before you PK the offending player, and immediately report to a GM.
You are allowed to fight back against monsters, ONLY if it creates a situation where it puts a player in jeopardy or prohibits you from assisting a player. Otherwise, you are to just leave the area when aggro’d by a mob.
No PVP Allowed at any time with any other VGM, Mod, or regular player. Any VGM found to be PK’ing any other player or participating in PVP will be removed.
So they are not allow to fight us, but they enjoy themself when they use their skills on players for fun. When this happen I advise all players to take ss and send it to Acclaim ( well, the premium accounts will be serve first…). Another thing : for revenge VGMs (they speak to each other on MSN, you all know the debate) tend to disconnect certains players. Take a full back-up of all “dc” issues and if you feel that something is wrong, report it.
A VGM can’t attack a Mod ? Mods have certain powers inside game also ? Or they protect each others real characters in game ?…
Character Boosting: VGM’s can not contact GM’s directly for this. In order to get your character boosted, the VGM Team Lead must send an email with the VGM(s) account name.
But they asked it on MSN…
All I see are some rudimentary rules written in a broken english. This system is not only full supported by players money but also has no use. They have privileges and do nothing. They don’t know how to answer players questions. In game they are under all of standards : roars that they enter the game and all the request must be send via ‘game email’, if you whisper, they don’t know what to answer.
The system, in time, showed signs of flows ( one is the high number of the ex officials from the team who left it or were kicked), yet Acclaim still keep it. If not for it, how can GMs can have girls material to flirt with or how they can answer to players ? Acclaim keeps this vicious system because they don’t want to hire others GMs.But, in my opinion the prise for keeping the system is much higher to pay in money and image than hiring a GM.
