[GM]Fugen: “Vagabonds were never intended by Indy21 to be a playable role.”

Vagabonds were never intended by Indy21 to be a playable role.” – A line which isn’t new from the Acclaim staff. Even The Hermit said already “Vagabonds were never meant to thrive“. But this is, of course, a lie.

Why I say that so easly? Well, because this time I can prove it very easily.

On January 04th, 2007, the player Wayward made a little guide for the clanless warriors. On May 2nd, 2009, this old veteran decided to take his guide down because it was stolen by Warda and Acclaim Storm. However; back then, rather on January 05th, 2007, our known Hermit replied on this topic, with the following words:

An excellent guide for the road less traveled.

Indeed, those on high prefer to visit The Land in the guise of Vagabonds, in order to experience the freedom of movement granted only by such lack of affiliation.

There will indeed be benefits granted to those who remain neutral.

I can explain it to you:
This was one of the original plans from Indy21. Even I didn’t know that they changed every original plan. I just know it since I posted about it. When I heard that, it made everything sense. What I knew never came. And when, then just later than I expected.

The Hermit does indeed know about those original plans. He was the one who gave to the clanless warriors some hints back then. But why do they keep telling, the Vagabond role was never meant to be played? Why was there never a level capture as Vagabond on Opening Chi 1, to be forced to join a clan?

I tell you why: First of all, there was never a cap for vagabonds because Indy21 had indeed plans for this role. But Hermit would never admit it, because I was the one who told that all the time.

Me, an author on the Project AI Blog. Could you imagina how much credibility the Acclaim leads would lose, if they would even just indirecty admit that I, Legend the Vagabond, was all the time right, and that it was indeed planned? No, they never would do that. But luckily there’s this old post from The Hermit…

And if they decide to delete this post, just to try to keep the secret, I still got a backup-picture of it:

However; Some days ago, [GM]Fugen was owned with these links. His answer was this one:
http://phpbb.acclaim.com/9dragons/viewtopic.php?p=851388#851388

What a surprise, just moderators can reply now on this topic. Probably, to not get owned again, and to keep the last word. But I would not be THE Legend, if I would not answer on that. With support of another person, I will answer now Fugen’s post, and I made sure that the following words arrived Fugen as a PM – Hey, I am correct, even if some Acclaim-followers say something else.

Yes, The Hermit made a thread about playing a Vagabond. And we’ve had a Vagabond event or two.

Seems like you didn’t looked exactly on the topic. This was a guide a player made of the path of a vagabond. Hermit answered, it was a good guide, and there would be indeed benefits one day for those who stay neutral. And I by myself know a lot about the original plans of Indy21. Indy21 follow meanwhile, since 2007, new plans for 9Dragons. But don’t keep saying that Vagabonds were never intended by Indy21 to be a playable role. Oh and btw, you just had 1 vagabond event until now. And that was a boss spawn event. And that was just because many people bugged your staff members all the time.

This was a message from Legend, the one who keep to be the one with more knowledge about this game, between you and him.

About your really absurd questions… However… I will answer them to you:

Are there any benefits to being a Vagabond and not selecting a clan? Other than going to whatever map you want? (Not really)

No, and quess why… Because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Can any player just starting the game earn the same skills that any newly created Vagabond earns? (Yes, almost immediately)

Yeah, and quess why… Because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Do Vagabonds have special skills implemented in the game? (No)

No, and quess why… Because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Are Vagabonds stronger than any other clan/role? (No)

Is that a fun question? Nukers are godlike and stronger than any other roles. Means that, 9Dragons was just meant to play as Chi Kung Artist? You should overthink your questions…

Are they equal in terms of power to any other clan/role? (No)

Haha, that’s even a more funny question. No role in this game is equal in terms of power. There is 1 godlike role, 3 loser roles and 1 forgotten role. Now quess who’s who.

Do all the playable clans have dozens and dozens of clan-specific quests? (Yes) Do Vagabonds? (No)

No, and quess why… Because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Do Vagabonds have any higher-level skills that are implemented in the game? (No — and I’m not talking about manually adding Peng You Lightfoot)

No, and quess why… Because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Do Vagabonds have any sort of Vaga-specific content implemented in the game? (No)

No, and quess why… Because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Do Vagabonds get less Chi points than any other clan/role? (Yes)

Not as long the clanmembers don’t get a 2nd role. But why don’t have Vagabonds something similar like a 2nd role, rather a role upgrade? Well, because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Do Vagabonds get any kind of role bonus? Something to say — hey, you picked the hardest path, here’s something good to offset that? (No)

No, and quess why… Because after Indy21’s bankruptcy the original plans were forgotten. Otherwise, we would have that since a long time.

Well, Fugen, you are the personification of the word every internet-geek like to use: Noob.

If you think you can lie for the good of Acclaim by calling me indirectly a lier, then you will cut yourself.

  1. hmmm…forgotten role…
    are you talking about healers there?
    cause vagabonds have gotten more updates than we have

      • well then, please name an update that has specifically helped healer,
        or has benefited the healer group most of all

        exactly… you cant…

        while vagabonds have had some events before, healers have just had nerf, after nerf

        now its a 10-20% damage reduction -_- as if we don’t do the least amount of damage already

        gl12 hermit gloves, +6, 20% crit 500 yy dmg… maxed str

        gets KSed by a vaga… how do you think that makes me feel

        skills and actives are nothing if they dont help in the least bit,

      • If a Vagabond ks’ed a healer, that just because he got the way better equipment that the healer. Take a Vagabond and a Healer with the same equipment, and you will see how fast the Vagabond will die.

  2. Fugen said : don’t play vagabonds folks ! He is lousy game manager. What role to play ? Nukers. Did Indy21 made only nukers role ? Fugen have no idea what he said.

  3. Fugen should resign. Now he said to play to don’t play vagabond role and close the topic. What a big noob he is ! A event can make up for all what vagabonds didn’t get as they promise ? NO.

  4. Vagabonds gets a lame event like the rest, is no much to try to compensate something you promised you will do and didn’t do it. Fugen lies and he lies a lot. He is not a person with credibility.

  5. The truth is that you can’t get any benefit from playing this game, event we talk about fun. There are too many things that ruin this game. I don’t think in the future something will change. Question : why to play a vagabond?

  6. Fugen answer is very childish he should have come in front of us more prepared. In fact I don’t think he has some answers only some lies. Sorry for the players who plays vagabond role, I don’t think ‘soon’ you will get something from Acclaim.

  7. I have heard you say Indy21 went bankrupt before. I think you’re making that up. If they went bankrupt why are they still developing the game in US and Korea and Taiwan? If you can’t prove this to me I don’t believe any of the things you say, legend. Prove your credibility. That you don’t lie more than Acclaim.

  8. I also believe Indy21 went bankrupt and there are many reasons. The place of office of Indy21 was change in a different city, the page of Indy21 was down lot of time, Nexon for K 9dragons bought the rights over 9dragons, all codes of game, everything and the answer to many mails of players. Anyway I don’t like the fact that vaga will not have a future, I was planning to make one.

  9. It is a matter of fact before Acclaim will go bankrupt again too. I will quit this game very soon, I am sick and tired of Acclaim and how they lie to us.

  10. What Fugen said is very stupid, Indy21 image of 9dragons use a vagabond one, In all wuxia novels vagabonds goes to others clans and learn the skills till they become no 1. The writer of 9dragons is a wuxia writer so I don’t think he don’t know what vagabonds are. From the others part, Fugen is a small writer who have no idea what wuxia is.

  11. Did Fugen now just said that Hermit lied in 2007 ?

    ‘There will indeed be benefits granted to those who remain neutral. There will also be opportunities to shed one’s affiliation. And as to benefits for achieving the highest levels and respect within a Major Clan, well… someday I shall reveal to you the fates of the last 9 warriors who achieved such fame… ‘

    I get that from his answer.

  12. The right question that FUgen should put himself is :

    DO VAGABONDS PAY THE SAME AS THE OTHERS ROLES TO PLAY ? I think yes, they buy same items from the mall.

  13. Fugen said only crappy words and I see no logic in what he said. If vagabonds were never intended by Indy21 to be a playable role why the hell we have this role in game ? Logic, they indeed to make it to be a playable role.

  14. Another big mistake form Fugen part > maybe all vaga should stop playing this game. Only nukers can play it, so way to go Fugen, nice work.

  15. I am sad to see that vagabonds have no faith in this game. Why to play a role that has not mean to be playable role ? I don’t find any logic explanation. On the other hand I am happy to see that vagabonds like Legend can make their own fate 🙂

  16. Since Fugen came he said plenty of crazy and stupid things and done too. I hope he gets fired soon, he is an ‘amateur’.

  17. ‘A vagabond is a character who has not joined a clan, either because he does not yet satisfy the requirements or because he does not want to join one.
    Despite being defined as a character lacking a Clan and Role, it is often considered to be a fifth role in 9Dragons.’
    http://9dragons.wikia.com/wiki/Vagabond

    So ?

  18. Just a punctualization Legend.
    I have never done, stolen or posted any guide about Vagabonds, the explanation about this issue is in here:
    http://phpbb.acclaim.com/9dragons/viewtopic.php?t=8672

    If you see in the Title of the related guide …[Thanks to Warda] this doesn’t means that I am claiming any kind of credits for that guide.

    May be to ask and to listen before to acusse would be nice for who accuse and for the victim of that acusation.

    • You helped Storm on this guide. A guide, where you didn’t even asked for the guys permission to repost or expand it, Warda.

      If you don’t want to be called thief, don’t steal guides without permission.

      Oh and btw, Warda: Instead of repost the exact same guide again, just link to the original guides of your players. You and your other Acclaim-mates should learn that.

      • If you would have asked me you would know that this “…Thanks to warda” was for different than this guide.

        I am sorry to see how you can fall in same mistakes than you criticize, you have your pre-made idea and nothing will make you change, so say whatever you want, I will not bother to answer you again because your mind is closed and it would be just a waste of time.

      • Yeah sure he thanked you for something else than for this guide, on the title of it.

        You never were forced to write something to me. If you don’t answer to me again then I’m happy about it. Then you would go again so fast like you came.
