LU WTF Moment 02: Tale of the Suicidal Forumer

LU WTF MOMENT 02: Tale of the Suicidal Forumer

I just got home from a very tiring day at work. Thor, the latest server of Ragnarok Online, was plagued with technical bugs. That's the problem when the developer and game publisher are different entities. You can't really expect speedy resolution to stuff like this, which is very difficult. Anyway, because of the error on the side of Gravity, Thor will have to undergo a major rollback. I can't help but be saddened because I know how it feels like to be a player and suddenly get hit by something like this. This is not the fault of the player - this is also not just the fault of Gravity. To all my Thor readers, I humbly offer my apologies. We promised you the best game play experience in Thor and we let you down on several occassions. Believe me guys, I know how you feel! I've been there before. Hopefully the compensation package will be enough to give you reason to stick it out with us. FYI, that will be announced Wednesday, probably around noon time.

The WTF moment for today was actually just a few minutes ago and it is related to the Thor rollback. I opened my lap top and checked the Ragnaboards. The Ragnaboards is the official pRO message boards/forums. I've had my fair share of encounters here with moderators when I was still a player. Actually I think I got banned by Goenitz once or twice. I can't blame him though, he was just doing his job (Hehe). You really can't let an anti-LU person like me (back then) run crazy posting every other minute. Anyway, as soon as I checked the Midgard Congress section, one thread just screamed out so loud I couldn't ignore it:

"TO Waukeen: Reply or I'll Kill Myself"

He was one of the Thor players who got hit pretty bad with the rollback @_@. I'll be writting a very long letter to Gravity tomorrow afternoon. This should never ever happen again.

On a side note, I've been nominated to the Philippine Blog Awards! I think I'm under the Business/Corporate Blog category. It looks like this blog has been dubbed the "Level-up" Blog. Thanks to everyone for reading this post. I'll try to get some much needed material on Ragnarok 2 tomorrow. Cheers!

As much as I sympathize with him, his actions are really disturbing.

Hold on tight there. This is just like the infamous hell week, and we can pull this off.
