I did not understand how this character, TheHermit is built for Acclaim, but one thing is certain, the meaning given by Acclaim is completely in opposition of the real one.
Hermits, (Eremites, “inhabitants of a desert“, from the Greek eremos), also called anchorites, were men who fled the society of their fellow-men to dwell alone in retirement. Not all of them, however, sought so complete a solitude as to avoid absolutely any intercourse with their fellow-men. Some took a companion with them, generally a disciple; others remained close to inhabited places, from which they procured their food. This kind of religious life preceded the community life of the cenobites. Elias is considered the precursor of the hermits in the Old Testament. St. John the Baptist lived like them in the desert. Christ, too, led this kind of life when he retired into the mountains. But the eremitic life proper really begins only in the time of the persecutions.( you can read more at http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07280a.htm)
As you can see, true hermits are people who withdraw from society and live in solitude, away from human world .But, TheHermit from Acclaim likes to intervene in the LAND and give directives, orders, change the hierarchy to the existing pre-order, to replace people, to plead for some people, especially those from official team and to reflect how Acclaim should make more money.
In his epic post we find that those who left the official team led by Nathan, aka Acid Acclaim have done it willingly ( resigned amicably). How can you give your resignation amicably? That word holds no purpose. The resignation is a unilateral act of will. On resignation (official document) are normally written the reasons why you do it. In this case, are rather obvious.
Warriors, I wish to make a few official statements regarding New Leadership and The Dark Hermit Contest, to end the rumors, and assure players that fairness is being pursued.
Is there any warrior left in 9dragons ? Correct formula should be nukers …
After, TheHermit meditate on DarkHermit contest. As usual, the competition is fiercely contested.Acclaim has done the things in hurry and did not write the rules for participation in the contest.At this we also add the bugs and the influence of some people from the official team who help their friends.
This contest was made to calm some pride, but instead it exploded. No way a normal player would have chances to win this contest. The bands did it (win it) with the help of some old players, they customized characters and they used all they could and had. Many wonder how you level so quick? Yes, you can do. Let us remember the top equipment and relics in the game that only few have and which costs bilions also the help of a healer was ‘reported’.Overlapping of clothes at low levels (because the bug from Acclaim is not fixed yet), overlap of relics (bug from Acclaim, reported 2 years and unresolved, the one who adds more damage of nukers 5-6kk), experience cards and events . In 2007 you must practice for few months to grow a character from OC to FC7, in 2009 that character can grow in 3-5 days to FC7 (especially if you catch 5x the exp event cards).
This is The Hermit’s decision after much meditation on the subject. Errors occur, and we shall endeavor to correct them if they have been made. As of this moment, no errors have been proven or disproven.
Kidding ? This competition has show one thing: the reality of 9Dragons. At present because of bugs , unbalanced roles, the state of contempt, uncertainty and saturation of players, any contest, event hosted by Acclaim would automatically become an ‘atomic bomb’.
TheHermit should reflect over this…
