This post will clear up some information on who is on the 9Dragons staff and what they do here.
My name is IPLAY9DRAGONS and I am one of the Game Masters here. I joined GamesCampus recently and was placed on the 9Dragons project. As for my name, I panicked a bit when told to select a handle, but I’m slowly getting fond of it. This would be my first job in the gaming industry and I am EXCITED! I’ve always been an avid gamer since the NES days and hopped into the MMORPG scene with a Free to Play title early 2000s and always wanted to work with games.
At the moment, I am sure I do not understand 9Dragons as well as a lot of players here, but I am eager to learn. I’m very happy to see the positive community that we will be inheriting from GamersFirst. During my time as a Game Master, I will do my best to ensure opinions and concerns are passed on and feedback is passed back. Look for me in-game.
I also like cookies, but I could care less for pie.
Well, it looks like I never “officially” introduced myself. Let’s get started by saying, “Hello, I’m the Game Master for 9 Dragons.” Some of you already knew that though I’m pretty sure . I’ve been on quite a few projects here at GamesCampus and have recently just started with 9 Dragons I’m also known as Zed on other titles here at GamesCampus. I’m really excited to be on the 9 Dragons project and look forward to the re-launch. Been playing games since the good o’ NES days and have seen the gaming industry grow so much compared to what it was back then.
Although I’m not quite pro at 9 Dragons as some of you here, I’m eager to learn more about 9 Dragons and would like to get to know the community better. I’m sure I’ll be seeing many of you in-game and look forward to learning from everyone
I am into cars…some say toooo much I say not enough . Hence my name (FC3S)
First, I wish to congratulate the large team of people responsible for this. It took courage to begin such a work. Even more to finish it. I salute you all.
I personally salute iMetal, for having the guts to have the idea that a player could rally people to him to bring about that which was thought suredly lost forever. You’ve done not only yourself a service, but the whole of the community. I am certain that I speak for all when I declare my utter excitement that this brings to me. The possibilities are endless for the players, and nothing is beyond reach of a community united with a single purpose. Nothing is more inspiring, nor gratifying to the mind and spirit.
Soothing to the soul, I rest easy with the knowledge that I trust iMetal, Peat, and the rest of the team in an effort to make this a regularly scheduled event. For it brings me a hope that I did not have before. I am more than happy to support it any way I can.
Now, say hello to the winners.
And the pictures of the winners with me. Along with some enthusiastic photo enthusiast.
Full list of winners by iMetal :
Congratulations to the winners and stay tune for Phoenix server in 23/04.2011, before Easter!
For the past 48 hours our main website experienced some technical problems and slow-downs related to web sessions. The issues have now been solved, and if you had problems performing account changes or transactions on the website, please retry your transaction now, as the issue is now solved. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will try it again. (Hyperion)
As title says, I really cant believe how You, G1 can screw every simple thing You touch?I have wrote PM to Trixter, I have wrote on forum, I have wrote support ticket with one simple request:DONT OVERWRITE MY CHARACTER, PLS. Because I was working on him last months.What else should I do?
And quest what? Ofc they did this and ofc screwed it like always.
Now I have a toon with crap items, withouth epithets and without skills.
And to all G1 staff, why You think, that forum is only one place where You can communicate with us. It is hard to PM every one account about the template injection date? Hard to send e-mail, hard to wrote notification on servers, roar from time to time, wrote something in this stupid gift box? But not, better is to update own post with one sentence. It is really amazing
And last but not least:
Just think a little about it: Players are not logging to 9D every day, even every weekend.
IT WAS HARD TO GIVE US MORE TIME TO EMPTY OUR CHARS? ONE WEEKEND IS REALLY FAIR?
So because I lost a lots of items (f.e 600 def set) and cash, because I have got bugged char, You G1 have got -1 customer.
QUOTE (Hyperion @ Apr 14 2011, 08:19)Clearly, you are an emotional being and feel that you have been mistreated in some way. I will attempt to make you feel better, and then close this post.Why would we overwrite a character? Because you requested a template, and in order to give you that template, we HAVE to overwrite and existing character. You provided us the exact name of the character to be overwritten. It is not our fault that you ignored our suggestion to make and log into a new “placeholder” character and give us that name for overwriting.If you gave us the name of a character you were working on, and not a placeholder character we suggested, that is your fault, not ours. Submit a ticket, with the name of the character you want us to overwrite, and we will overwrite that character with the new template.Your the one that screwed up, not us, we operate on the information we have been given. We unfortunately have been banned by the Supreme Council of Psychics with the Game Industry from using our Psychic Powers to figure out what players ACTUALLY want as opposed to what they say they want. It would not be fair to our competitors.
We communicate in many ways: Forums, direct mail, e-mail, PM’s, tickets, Facebook Twitter just to name the ones I use. The reality is that the Forums are the best method of communication and so while we use lots of other communication tools, the forums are where we do the most direct communication with the players.
Conclusion : who is wrong, who is right I let you decide ! As for the rest, be with your eyes open when you expect results after you made a claim !
Tonight we will be patching up to version 128. Version 128 is a very small patch mainly for server updates on our end, however we did get the Christmas Deco fix in there. So those of you that have the santa costume that was suddenly changed to a different deco after the 127 patch will have your deco restored back to its Christmas greatness.
The Skills for Strategist will be coming in the next version 129, we are already working on this version so the QA process has become a lot more fluid as of late.
The Templates list for the second round have been steadily worked on this week, and the team is way ahead of schedule. It is possible it will be finished by tomorrow! That is, of course, not counting the templates that get bugged when the player provides us incorrect information (such as what character to overwrite), although, in fairness, we did encounter some errors that were our fault as well and we could not have known that overwriting male characters with female templates (or vice versa) would cause a bugged character.
Otherwise, I have been working on a lot of promo code promotions today and this week. Some of them have been specific for players in certain categories (such as people that claimed a character for restoration but it did not meet the level requirements, or something like players that have not logged in 90+ days) and we have another universal code coming to you all shortly, hopefully for the weekend .
The G1 forums went down as well as most of the site for maintenance from around 8:30pm to 11:15pm. The patch for 9D is being uploaded as I write this. It should only be another 30 minutes to an hour.. *Hyperion
The servers will be down a little longer due to some unexpected network issues that need to be fixed. I have no ETA at the moment, but I’ll post any updates I receive here. Sorry! * Vagabond
