Ich wollte mich auch noch für die schöne Zeit auf Phoenix bedanken, die mich teilweise immer wieder flashbackartig an längst vergangene Tage erinnert hat.
Dieses Spiel verfolgt mich einfach schon gefühlt seit meiner Jugend und ich bin dafür dankbar, dass ich noch ein letztes Mal in den vollen Genuss von DAoC gekommen bin
und Teil dieser Community sein durfte. Es hat mir einfach wahnsinnig Spaß gemacht auf diesem Server zu spielen, bis zu einem Zeitpunkt an dem (meiner Meinung nach) zuviel in diversen Dingen herumgeschraubt wurde. Vielen Dank an das gesamte Team, die diesen Server zu dem gemacht hat, was er dann schlussendlich auch war. Es gab immer gute Events, die Community wurde bei Laune gehalten, geheult wird und wurde sowieso immer. Ebenso habe ich dank euch auf dem Server viele Leute wieder getroffen mit denen ich als junger Teenager zusammengespielt habe und alleine das war die Zeit auf Phoenix Wert!

In diesem Sinne,
vielen vielen Dank!

Half of my friends have been Permabanned and are no longer able to play the game they enjoy so much, What happens when half my friends dissapear? They want me to enjoy other games with them instead.

Get smarter friends. That is hardly the devs' fault.

Plus, there was a system in place where they could be reinstated and on probation. If the 50% remaining were willing to stand in as probation officers you could have all been back up and running in a matter of two months.

Unless, of course, there is more to the story...

Well for starters, we are a family of 5, whole family played on 3 computers. BAM! 4 of us were banned for "Account sharing" and the answers we got was like "You know what you done wrong Silly!" And thats that.... My Daughter really enjoyed the game but lost all will to play any games after she got banned. She basicly logged into her account on my computer. But NOPE! NOT ALLOWED!

So in order for us to play legally on that server we have to have 5 computers wich i think is total BS. No other game has anything remotely like this.
Also a few of my friends got into similar situations. And i think that such things are just bullshit. Way to kill your own server tbh. They banned alot of Multiboxers and botters, but alot of innocent people was drawn down the same hole and they just basicly shrug it off. "Who cares?

I agree that this rule was rather unfortunate. I doubt though it came about because the devs were mean/cruel/void of empathy, but rather because the requests were too many (this is my conjecture) and couldn't be handled by a bunch of volunteers.

Yes i understand why the rule is there. But the whole "Auto-ban" And all that stuff just made me puke. And then they re-patch so whole computer goes Bananas thinking of viruses and what not just so Dev's can scan your computer for illegal programs and what not. Im 100% Sure that this server died 2x as fast as it should/could because of unneccesary bans

There were/are no auto bans, all bans require a member of staff to activate. We were also up front about our actions. The rules state that we will possibly scan your computer for "Illegal" programs. We announced all changes to the rules regarding sharing/computers. Nobody was permabanned for if they inadvertantly shared, they recieved a 3 day ban. If they then proceeded to repeat the sharing they were then permabanned for the 2nd offence.

Well you are not 100% here. Cause we created 3 accounts on 1 computer, those 2 "non main" accounts were permabanned. But in fact i just helped my family create the accounts, but you guys permabanned them. In the rules back then it stated something like "You are only allowed to have 1 account per PERSON" It did not say anything about where the account should be created or such.

So hence half of my family was banned because they were "Secondary accounts" And when i talk to you guys about it i get the answer like "You know what you done!"

Also a GM threatened me ingame cause i was putting shrooms on Castle walls (dont remember the exact thinge but it was something like inner door not down and shrooms on walls. I filmed it and sent to Another GM who said it was completely fine. So seems like the rules were vague or GM's not sure how to handle things.

I say it again, its probably the most fun Daoc server i played on, but the whole "Big dark shadow in the skies" watching every move you make and just waiting for a reason to ban you is there kinda ruined it for me among other things. Like Nerf my main Animist to the ground while having 10ppl GTaoe blasting a tower making the game unplayable was totally fine felt like priorities were meh
