Ok, I'm tired of hearing the same thing now, especially when it holds only partial stabillity. Sure, people go corrupt with power, as the saying goes, 'Absolute Power corrupts Absolutely.',
BUT, what says this is what is happening? I recently returned to AoD, and guess what, I've seen alot of people who were banned by the old admin for things they didn't do, were allowed to return. I wasn't one of them, but I'm not mad about it anymore. I've come to the conclusion, that I am not wanted on AoD, no matter what I might've done, or not done in the past, it's really that simple.
The Admin run the mud. If you don't like how, or why they do what they do, it's simple, make a few comments to them, talk to them, try to get them to see whats happening, and how it's driving away players. If you don't want to do that, then leave. Because if you're not willing to try, and possibly be banned, like I, and alot of other players were, then you don't care about the mud, so don't complain about the Admin and wizards not caring about it.
I don't agree with alot of things, just like I never have, but I can see, that the Admin, like all the players, are not perfect. They do the best they can, if thats not good enough for everyone else, then I'm sorry, but you should perhaps leave, and try and do better somewhere? Don't bitch about it.
Hmm, and now what to say about the mud...
I recently returned to AoD, hoping with the Admin change, I might be allowed back to the mud I loved so much...But, not all things change. I was not allowed to, but I did get one thing I wanted. I got an impartial decision, both by friends, and enemies. And if anything, that IS a big change. I think this change in Admin, might just be one step in a new direction for the mud, and if that helps it out, I'm all for it. I just hope it does help it, and not hurt it. But only time will see.
As for the mud, well...It's a very good mud, and very addicting.
I'm not really sure what else to say. I'm sorry, I guess this wasn't really a review, more of a rant about other people (Myself included in the past). I have realised, it's not worth bitching about, because that won't get anything changed.
Thank you for reading this.
