View Full Version : Where did all the points go?

Some dicks went point happy and started changing everyone's titles to stupid crap Dammit they beat me too it...

Yeah, I'm never going to do that RPG thing. I'm not THAT bored with life (and yet I still post on a near empty thread:D )

Matt-Windu and some other ppl (probably) wanted to change the system, so matt started working on the battle system and decided to give away tons of points to ppl.

Honestly, I dont like the battle system, because theres the ppl who play too much and the ppl who just dont play. Nothing for ppl who want to play from time to time.:mad:

Damn. I liked points. I never actually did anything with mine, but having a whole bunch of them (over 1000) just sitting there rather helped my image. ^^

Not too sure about this Battle Hack thing. I took a glance at it, got confused by the concept of buying weapons with no money, saw some threads in which people got killed, and then proceeded to run the hell away.

The only things I wanted to buy with my points was the name glow thing and a custom title, and I'll be able to get them as soon as I get to a certain number of posts anyway. But there is no way I'm playing some Net RPG thing to get points. I may be a geek, but I still have my limits.

1000 posts = custom title
1250 posts = glowy name :D

What new devilry is this...
I swear I still had my glow yesterday. But now that you've pointed it out, it's magically disappeared!
... or perhaps I'm just horribly unobservant. Whatever.

Well, that is stupidity in extreme amounts (sorry to any mods listening, but the truth hurts). I paid good points for my glow, as did Vostok and near everyone else. And they take away the entire points system, not to mention already-existing bonuses gained from points, because of a few isolated incidents of abuse of a single feature?

Does anyone else see the slight flaw in logic there?

I think some stuff is being done to the database. Normal service will be resumed soon

I agree. They should have just banned the accounts. The alternative, to me atleast, seems over-complicated and a waste of time. Oh, well. Its not like it matters what a couple people at one of LF's least frequented forum think...

08-02-2003, 12:45 AM
Actually it's the feeling of a lot of people all around LF. Go check by yourself. Also now that this forum is dying and we desperately need new conversation come join the Off-topic forum. It's fun and entertaining while we can still keep this forum alive.

I post there occasionally, but I find I can't post in most of the pointless spammy threads.

08-02-2003, 12:54 AM
That's why it's the Off-Topic Forum. It's pointless because if it was serious noone would go there. If you want some seriousness go post at the Galactic senate. You're gonna have to create a new thread there though...

08-02-2003, 01:03 AM
No I don't mean threads that are off-topic on random subjects, but ones that are like "Last Post Wins" or "Guess What I'm Thinking", etc.

08-02-2003, 01:08 AM
Really? You don't go there often do you? It's been awhile since those kind of thread have dissapeared...

And the battle hack is going after they upgrade to VB3, so don't worry.

when's the new thinggy coming? it was kind of lame to install the hack to dump it... especially for all the crap that came along with it.

08-03-2003, 11:14 AM
They said they're waiting til VB3 is out a while before installing it, to make sure any major bugs are fixed. And if they upgrade to VB3, the battle hack won't work. Unless someone were to rewrite the entire codie to work with VB3....

Did they say that there will be any new features that come with the upgrade. HG is upgrading and they're getting a bunch of new features (then again HG is kinda plain:D).
