Come on, is that really called for? At the very least, their website is fantastic.

Actually...wouldnt that be Aardwolf ? I mean at least 200 players on at peak, 100% stock, an actual Uber-newbie (called a 'Super Newbie&#39 classification one can try for and become (including your own Super-newbie channel) etc...I mean just check out their Resource Page

Magica Materia isnt like that..far from that.

Actually, would be fun to see which mud is the most successfull (counting playerbase) and is nearly stock.

That would be nice for research, but I dunno about fun. Thats about as much fun as when I correct my bosses correspondence (fixing his spelling errors of "quistions" and "raidos") and then doing payroll and seeing him earn 5 times what I do.

When mediocrity is successful, it makes me wanna kick a puppy!

You obviously haven't bothered to play the game. Materia Magica has no "stock" areas.

Also with approximately 8 million locations, having an average of 250 players online could hardly be considered "overpopulated".

I wonder sometimes if you people actually know even a clue about what you are talking about.  I play Materia Magica (note the order of thoes words vmaster).  Rarelly lagging, extremly friendly admin, and sensible players.  The world is HUGE... I have no idea where you got this idea that its 'overpopulated', or that _any_ part of it is Stock...

How offensive.

I have no problem with people who use and play stock muds, they have their place in the community as much as any others. I do have a problem with people who obviously feel they can comment negatively on realms they haven't even bothered to visit.

Mass production?

Each area that we build on Materia Magica is fully developed by us. Our builders build only on Materia Magica, and all ideas for new implementations are only accepted if they fit into the unique realm of Alyria. We do not churn areas out, we spend time on their detail and fully develop them before release. Usually 2-3 major areas per year.

Over-populated?

If you have bothered to visit Materia Magica, you would know that with 4 continents, 3 planes of existence and over 40 unqiue zones and the average players online being around 275, it would be neigh impossible to over-populate the realm.

Happygolucky?

I would hope that the players of your game were happygolucky too It is always nicer to be involved in a hobby that makes you smile rather than get bitter and twisted.

*cough* *cough*

40 unique zones? I wouldn't call that large. We have over 250 unique zones, coming up near 25-30k rooms. AND wilderness maps spanning several continents with millions of non-real locations. We have about 30 players online at peak. Now, comparing i would also certainly say materia magica is over-populated.

Yeah, now you're talking wilderness and NOT "real" locations. You can't use that for describing how "large" the world is.

I am not getting into a debate of who has the biggest schlong For starters I am female so am at a disadvantage from the start.

I am glad your world is large, I am happy for any group of people that can run successful games, regardless of the size of their playerbase or number of rooms. I also don't feel that to make oneself bigger one has to degrade or attempt to belittle others.

There is place enough for all in the world, whether it be in the community of online games, or not.

MM is a large world, to be more specific, we have over 50k rooms, not including the wilderness. Overpopulated while a relative term, is still not a term I would use to describe Alyria.

Keep smiling

There are over 130 separate unique areas and 8 million rooms in Materia Magica. The average number of players online is 275.

There's also a very nice wilderness system - if you are saying that your wilderness system in your game, Hephos, isn't used by your players as separate areas with which to explore and adventure, then you are under-utilizing your wilderness. Materia Magica is making good use of theirs. There are separate zones within the wilderness - areas where hill giants roam and where you can find cave trolls, they aren't all in the same location or just based on terrain. So yes, I would say that 8 million rooms does count towards the total.

It's also very easy to have lots of rooms. But having lots of detailed, well-described rooms, with interesting NPCs who have their own scripting and interaction? Much harder. There are few games who do a really good job at making use of the systems they have, so I would say that quantity is definitely != quality.
