Bad news: Server developments.

Post by Mike74 on Wed Dec 07, 2016 1:06 am

So check out this chat I had with Brew on Steam:

brew: can we chat?
FreakFire74: hey Brew, yeah sure.
FreakFire74: whats up
brew: im bringing an idea up to you, so dont think its official, i just want your honest opinion first
FreakFire74: sure, shoot
brew: would you be ok, starting over again, same map, same everything, but everythign fresh and brand new
brew: i have many reasons why, but i dont want to do it unless you are on board with the idea. (if you want to know why i can tell you as well)
FreakFire74: wow, thats quite a big idea!
FreakFire74: what do you mean, same everything?
brew: same rules, same rate, skill gains etc
FreakFire74: And of course, I'd like to know the reason
brew: im expanding the pve area out further on this map either way after this conversation
FreakFire74: so we'd entirely be rebuilding our settlement?
brew: all of MR (molrehan) and hots (horde of the summoned) quit
FreakFire74: really? Ah, thats too bad
brew: aye so i have two proposals, 1 you come build a new beginning with us
brew: or 2 i can drop you guys off on the same place, flatten it out the way you want, and drop 1 guard tower off already
brew: i basically found out all of MR/hots cheated
FreakFire74: hmm, thats too bad. So why would we need a restart then?
brew: so the offenders wont be playing here anymore
FreakFire74: how can you even cheat in a game like this?
brew: a lot of the world seems tainted, and i want to start again, with only 1 map
brew: they hafd a GM on their kingdom
brew: had*
brew: in order to help new players like i did
brew: they abused it
FreakFire74: ah, thats a shame
brew: im most likely going to delete all their stuff in the game on map 2, increase the pve area in the beginning, and also rewrite the griefing rules tonight, piper is holding a town meeting
brew: i wont reset the server if you guys dont want to trust me
FreakFire74: thing is, and I'm sure I'm speaking for the group. We've all gotten quite attached to Sovran Harbor.. We put in an unbelievable amount of work.. We love the location, our buildings.. we spent so much time on it.. Just today two players both seperately told me: "Damn, we built such an amazing place. I love our settlement!". And the same goes for me..
brew: thank you sir
FreakFire74: is there maybe another solution?
brew: thats enough evidence to just clean up the mess and regroup the server image
FreakFire74: I dont know anything about servers or tainted areas etc
brew: we are good, i wont do anything ,no worries. just will seem empty for a few weeks while i fix everything
brew: :p thanks for giving me the happiness i was missing
FreakFire74: Is there anything we can do?
FreakFire74: except keep playing of course
brew: atm no, but i might need a post when i fix everything, maybe a story of your settlements history
brew: give me a week and ill ask you for a favor Razz
FreakFire74: anything
brew: thanks for playing btw and no matter what you guys are fine, i just have to "get over" certain things
FreakFire74: too bad, man. I know how dedicated are to the server. Must have been a disappointment for you finding out about this
FreakFire74: how dedicated you are *
brew: goes to show, you cant trust anyone Razz
brew: even friends, and people you pay money to for a service
FreakFire74: thats a big shame
brew: yea, no worries, ill fix everything before the community event
brew: and i will get the server back on track
FreakFire74: so, what about the second (and third) map? You mentioned just using one map for now?
brew: second map is open and will stay open
FreakFire74: my guys were all eager to explore a second map at some point
brew: third will be on put for a long time now
FreakFire74: ah, alright



I don't think I spoke against the group when I told Brew we all loved Sovran Harbor and the work we have put in the game. I don't think you guys would want to leave that all behind any more than I would..

Too bad about the third map being postponed though.. Well, the second map is still open (although it is tainted by HOTS), and basically it would not be any different to us compared to the third one at this point..

I'm a bit worried about the developments though.. It seems like there was a big fight, and in a situation like this we are always reminded that we are playing on a private server.. Brew seems like a good guy but he could delete our characters at the flip of a switch..

There will be a town meeting on TS later on tonight. If I'm still up, I will join it.

Okay, a follow-up:

FreakFire74: hey Brew
FreakFire74: How did the meeting go?
brew is nu Online.
brew: Um, not well. Piper ended up feeling extremely sick after we killed a huge spider in town waiting for the meeting to start
brew: Her and I will have the new rules posted today/tonight though
FreakFire74: oh, thats too bad
brew: She is also studying for her finals at university
brew: So I understand the anxiety
FreakFire74: of course!
brew: But just so you know, the server is fine won't go down or restart at all ever
FreakFire74: so, we took a look at the old HOTS settlement near Sovran Harbor. The tower is gone now?
brew: We just need ruleset 2.0 and the new no kingdom map up
brew: Aye all of HoTS are gone, use the town to pillage
brew: Don't build a tower, but use anything you see there, will be announcing today about the ruins scattered throughout the world.
brew: We will be turning off treasure chess
brew: Chests
FreakFire74: we tried, but we couldnt take the boat or carts. We'll have to picklock the houses one day Smile No use in leaving all that good stuff lying around
FreakFire74: alright
brew: Aye but it gives you guys incentive to lock pick, or bash the door down
brew: And explore of course. One day the decay may open a path for you looters
FreakFire74: ah, too bad about the chests. Not that we found many, but its always fun finding something rare in the wilderness. Why will they be turned off?
FreakFire74: haha yeah
FreakFire74: any reason why we couldnt take the boat? Do we need permission to steal it?
brew: They put too much rare metal into the game. The molrehan guys had 10-15 adamantine swords without cheating
FreakFire74: aaah, sure
brew: The second map has a shit ton of chests
FreakFire74: I can understand that
brew: First map is 32
brew: The second is 32x 16 lol
FreakFire74: haha Smile
brew: Yea.... we didn't know that
brew: So now we do, won't make that mistake again. No one online or on the forums knew either so I don't feel bad
FreakFire74: and the boat? Can you actually protect a boat from theft by adjusting permissions? we couldnt open it, or take it. Not that we really need it, just trying to understand how that works
brew: I might turn them back on for certain holidays or special events
brew: You probably need to pick the mooring anchor or boat lock
FreakFire74: right, will try again then
brew: I will look into if it's not working properly
brew: Keep me in touch, I can check tomorrow or this weekend
FreakFire74: ah. no worries. Its not important.
FreakFire74: just wanted to undetrstand how protecting property works. but we will look into lockpicking
brew: Yea outside the beginning there is no protection
brew: Minus, locks and gates
brew: And guards
FreakFire74: thats what I thought. So we must have overlooked the lock
brew: So feel free to steal/loot from other towns if you want that type of gameplay in return
FreakFire74: haha Smile Its more that we were curious to see what had happened to their village
FreakFire74: we passed other villages before but never stole anything because we dont want it happening to our settlement
FreakFire74: although, we are aware we are never completely safe
brew: Yep no worries. Use that village on the canal as a ruins. We plan to make the cabal that connects that canal to your town too
brew: Good on self awareness
FreakFire74: cool
brew: And yea if you steal expect people to steal from you. Simple adult stuff or course
FreakFire74: sure thing
brew: I'm here if you ever need anything
FreakFire74: thanks man! take care
