  1. Hey @Seiryoku and any lurkers! So I'm working with Snaxx whose working with a few other areas to get this all set up and situated. Unfortunately, both Snaxx and I have pretty intense IRL obligations right now, so I don't want to keep you in the dark. I'll update as soon as more of a plan comes around!
  2. I'll have to get back to you on that one unfortunately, I know I'm collaborating a little bit here so I want to ensure that I can ensure that I'm not telling us down the wrong rabbit hole.
  3. Small posters can be found within the various inns of Stormwind and it's regions. Although nothing fancy stands out within these posters, if an individual was to stop and read the text they would find these are simply looking for employment opportunities. "To all who may find themselves reading or reading for another, please take well in noting that myself, Raphael Astrin of Manor Bristlewind is currently seeking to employe three individuals; one individual must have experience with demolition work, specifically in terms of explosives, preferably with experience on clearing underwater areas or mineshafts, the other two individuals I seek must be experienced divers for long periods of time underwater. I would like to ensure that each of his majesties subjects has a fair opportunity in these employments, as it comes to my attention that some are unwilling to see through the past. I would formally like to welcome all reformed who have served their sentences in employment, in hopes that we may push for your success in the kingdom. For those interested, please send mail via courier to the Bristlewind Manor, with your details, experience, and why you think you fit the role. If selected, you will be receiving mail back. King's Honor." OOC: Essentially this is a posting to find players instead of applying for NPCs for an underwater based quest, perhaps two/three areas of quests. Please note, that this will be dangerous and your character could end up having risks all the way to death. Please reach out either Discord or post on here if interested.

  5. Dusk, There's probably a reason why I never applied for anything other than DM when it was Rag? Take the all high and mighty route if you will, but you among with all the rest of you 'noble' ex staff are the very people that abused that "clearly manipulated" information to get what you want. Because you're all greedy men children. Call me what you want, but you and the community as a whole are just as equal of a problem as I was.
  6. Meh I consider the law of large numbers. More chance with a higher population of getting 25% of the players you interact with to rp with you. Where as 25% of 30 is 7. That and the fact that paragon is "always changing" and never really is helps a lot.
  7. Fuck it, wasn't gonna post but drank a decent amount and am bored as fuck. Reasons I left were numerous, let's go from the top. Back when I got staff, Bree, Tass, and uh whatever his name, Egoist I think, were still staff. Tass was well known for chasing a shit load of people off the server, Ego was well known for just being a vote for anything Tass wanted, and Bree was pretty inactive. Chaud had just resigned I think. Before I got accepted, I was pretty frequent in 'Le Underdogs' chats with people like Porsk, Dunerat, Sprock, etc. Pretty much immediately they turned away from me when I got staff because it was more along the lines of 'you cant be a underdog if you are staff and aren't gonna give us bias'. Then there was Raz, whose easily one of the biggest problems around for Paragon as an admin. Despite being a fantastic Dev, Raz has been, and continues to be an issue. Which is rather ironic, as he was the only person who voted for me to actually be staff. The only reason the 'staff purge' even occurred was because Data got enough push while Raz was away on Winter finals or something to that sort. Raz was extremely against any purge, and truthfully, it just took waiting for him to have a period of inactivity and enough push on Data to convince that it was needed. Then let's talk about the Community as a whole, the toxic waste of Paragon. The main reason why I was able to even move the idea of a purge was because of the community's willingness and just desire for anything bad about staff. All it took was one out of context screenshot of Bobby and Smeg joking about abusing power and the community swallowed it up, and the purge happened because of the pressure from the community for 'accountability'. And of course the fact that it was extremely easy to manipulate the community via proxy of Medic at the time, as anything I officially couldn't do we would just work together to do and make sure it got out or done. So in closing, No, for me, it's not a matter of being burnt out about Paragon, or IRL issues, it's a matter of seeing the server as it blatantly is, ran by those without a backbone with a community willing to run with anything negative if it means they might get more power. It's legit some shitty political simulator with RP elements whenever everyone isn't in the mall.
  8. Too bad most revokes result in just OOC action with no coordination ICly that actually would make sense. Instead the player is just stripped of it with no real consequence to the character that's abusing it and the RP of the whole setting. The staff's job is to police things sure, but to be honest their current form of just making a shoutbox post with no real IC action and just 'lol never happened' is pretty bad policing.
  9. If your sole recruitment method is word of mouth, then what do you think is going to happen? People will bring over people similar to them. Like say for instance someone whose frequent and well known (or just in general a part of the community) on /v comes and plays on Paragon. They end up liking it, they tell their friends or even post it on /v. Now with that comes the /v mentality of screaming "cancer" or "fuck you" or anything to that nature as the new majority, because you aren't actively getting participants from another source. The issue lays not in convincing people to change, the issue lays in making the people that are 'toxic' the minority. Which won't ever happen because it's easier to troll new folks off the server than it is to bring new ones on it 'because we can just avoid those people!!!!1111'.

We’re humbled and grateful that so many players have chosen to join us for some Hearthstone fun. As our way of saying thanks, starting today through the end of May, everyone who logs in will receive three free Journey to Un’Goro card packs. Yup! Everyone! Even new players! Just log in to claim your bonus packs! We look forward to sharing many more years of Hearthstone with you. Hold on to your mug, and let’s find out where the journey will take us, together!
  13. Honestly if I wanted to have no creative liberty about things that aren't blatantly wrong in lore (i.e. Dragons in AU Draenor) then I'd shell out $15 and have more to do then just sit in the mall when not rping. Honestly I say to hell with it and try to get a server wide boycott, because remember, it's fine and dandy to be in charge, unless you have nothing to be in charge of. Compromise is one thing, but just barring people from your events because you personally disagree is childish, and outright destructive.
  14. Honestly it could be an abundance of things Suramar could have simply been bigger, and a portion of it could have been destroyed. Sort of think of City Limits and that being the destroyed part while technically still the city. Suramar is also the zone, there could have been multiple different settlements there that were within Suramar. Don't forget that previous to content cut, they were planning to have another island which was themed around elven ruins(Thal something), ultimately cut from final production. They could have been mistaken as to where they were. It was a long time ago from Suramar to that point in WC3, they could have simply been wrong ICly. Blizzard oversight. Ect. However, the most likely one I'd say is the second option, it wasn't Suramar city but rather a city in Suramar.
  15. A list of other servers with the terminology: "We recognize we aren't the server for everyone, and that's okay! We want you to get the best fit for what you're looking for." Used to have it going for multiple different servers whenever we had a "Server Alliance".
