It is no longer enjoyable to play on this server if you can't even talk in world chat as a normal conversation, basically being shunned by players who are not a GM and feel they need to add their two cents in everyone's business. .
Posting on this thread although it sort of takes it off topic, especially as most prior posts comment properly on Herm's thoughts about his server, rather than themselves. Moderators feel free to move mine and the prior post if they decide it should be put in a more appropriate place. When unfounded allegations made by specific players, get dragged onto the forum now as well as being said in game, it doesn't leave me with much choice but to respond.
I have no clue who applebutter is, although from prior posts it's someone who played Epic a while. They do not specify who the offenders are that harass others to the point where they leave, but I have had enough pms etc in game from people, even ones who left Sabotage and are now actually members of Conqueror to know who is being accused. There have also been instances in world chat where this accusation has been levelled. I have been advised by people for a while now that specific members of Sabotage faction, in the clique that used to run said faction, (Not the existing new leadership, who actually seem sensible people), have been putting out that Ishamael is driving people off the server. This is basically because specific players on the server who want to get their own way, don't like it when I speak up to prevent bullying, incorrect or omitted info being used to try and gain an advantage, or peoples views being put down just because they don't agree with the ones who thought they ran the show. At the end of the day everyone on this server is equal, even if they think they are not. no one is Herm's buddy more than anyone else, and that goes I believe for staff, ex staff also. So not sure why the GMs are also being accused of favouritism just for doing their jobs. As any that don't seem to do the job properly Hermod deals with. And as for people being shunned, we all know who has commented in world chat about this recently. I can categorically say that anyone shunned on server is being done so at people's own individual choice because they have had enough of people behaving maliciously, selfishly, and disrespectfully, and it is their choice. People get back what they give out, so if don't want shunning then treat people with respect. And to come on a forum and level unfounded accusations at people, no evidence yet again, with no indication of who you are in game, other than a support for a player who has made his own bed and is lying on it, in my opinion is poor practice in general.
