Historian left before reaching No.1 on Google because of our blog, but it seems that GM [Fugen] has not escaped. Yesterday, GM[Fugen] earned AI Project, no 1 in the top searches on Google (at least in my country), following by 9Dragons forum :
Yesterday helping in game with epithets a roar surprised me :
Was GM[Fugen] which announced his triumphant entry on Bardo.What he says in that roar? First he warns us that he will go in plain bloody (invisible) to kill the players that “pk” in safe zone.Lastly he addresses to those “pk/s” and tell them simply : “knock it off”. At first impression the initiative is a good one, even I am for it and I ‘salute” it because what was once safe is no more. Let’s analyze the implications at least.
1. Why GM announced his intentions and left aside the element of surprise ?
From what GM[Fugen] told us on the forums he appears to be a man of facts and examples, as in the case of Petty Paige. Now he is back to 180 degrees when it comes to give an example? It was better to go in bloody plain and to start killing them and than to roar ? Players would have complained that they were killed by a GM without a prior notice or the fact that there is no rule about “pk’ in safe zone? After all is Acclaim fault that safe zone is not safe.
2. This way to scare in roars have effects in a long run?
In my opinion will not have. I think that Acclaim should bring back in bloody plain, the guards, those avatars which, normally have their place there. Also a new system of penalties to make the difference between levels would be welcome.
3. “Pk-ing” repeatedly a player, in safe zone of bloody plain may be considered harassment?
I think GM[Fugen] should answer that in his Harassment Policy Guidelines/FAQ.
Finally, I can say that the initiative of Fugen is a good and I hope that in a short time to bring some results.Also in the near future I expect to see some guidelines about “pk” in safe zone in bloody plain.
