DivinityRO - The last nail in the coffin.
« on: Aug 03, 2012, 04:59 am »
Check out what we DivinityRO members are getting on our e-mails:

Hello Greil, GM Snowy here to bring you the drama llama, I just wanted to bring to everyone’s attention about DivinityRO’s, or to be more specific, Cookie’s issues. I’ve got your attention, eh? Well~ there are a few things I need to say. First of all, I used to think Cookie was a great person and really smart and all that jazz.

When I heard about him being [ corrupt in the past ], I truly believed that he had changed. Boy was I wrong! A few weeks ago, a brand new guild joined DivinityRO and they were so excited to be start playing in this server! Later on, I hear that Cookie starts to item them different MvP Cards & items such as; Ghostring, Bascojin, [ Umbala Spirit ], [ etc ]. Umbala Spirit was like $40, for two days, & its extremely unfair to all of the players who donated because he gave them out for free. So, let me just say this first. Cookie has had a past history where he was corrupt, and he continues to claim he has “changed” and “[ There’s no corruption here, nothing to hide! All that is in the past! ]”.Cookie continues to claim that there have been illegitimate items that were handed out by “past GMs”. Honestly, there is no one I can possibly think of… Rouge, the other Admin, was apparently “too drunk” to even do her job let alone come online and type codes of MvP cards to players. Plus, if she was caught doing that, wouldn’t those items be wiped and she immediately be kicked? Euphemia is his best friend, maybe she did it? But wait, how would we ever know? Euphemia would never! …Except that one time that she dropped a God Item by mistake to the guild leader of High Society with whom she was then having a relationship with, because “she was playing around”. But you know, that was just a mistake and we all know how those mistakes happen.

Also, the logs seem to miraculously erase and “back up” at random times, where only Cookie can access it. More on that later. No matter, 10+ pages are enough to prove corruption. Anyway, back to my main point, Cookie claims these “illegal” items were handed out by another GM, but the only person I can think of who could have done such a thing is Cookie himself. There are so many signs pointing to him, like the leaving/bans of High Society. They were claiming that he sold MvP cards and he got P.O.ed that this information was let out. He admitted to giving them items and playing around when the server first opened, “but I was only messing with them because there were only 30 people online and we were just playing”. You like to play an awful lot, Cookie. So, after some time, he forgot about the items and never deleted them, or just chose to ignore it. There are so many signs of these mistakes and items, just take a look at this [ thread ] and [ screenshot ]. Yes, these items have been removed now and I kept quiet till now as I believed that such things will never happen again. But then a few weeks ago Cookie invites Chyle’s and Cronus’s legit characters to go MvPing with his legit character, which was equipped with god items. After a few Bloody Branches, Chyle gets a Maya Purple Card. Cookie then gives Cronus a +10 Diablo Boots with a FBH card since he didn’t get anything. All commands logs were immediately “backed up” after this and made unavailable for our access. When we learned about this, we addressed Cookie regarding this and were told he was only testing something for MvPs. We told him that it was unacceptable to help legit characters with his god mode items and randomly give items as it would ruin the economy and were promised that such things will never happen again. And then, a few weeks later we learn of the incident where he has been giving items to the new guild. Cookie has been repeatedly throwing promises left and right about not being corrupt and we are tired of believing and falling for it again and again. Cookie is never going stop his habits.Lastly, you have a lvl 99 Admin show up out of nowhere, who is his cousin, [GM] Serah, and she’s so “trustworthy”. She had a past record of GM Impersonation for several GMs (Celtic, CoolCat, Cookie, Euphemia, etc.) but now she’s a GM. Wow! Great screening process. Recently, we were going through command logs and see that there have been weird items that were dropped in massive amounts, they were Mistress Cards. HOLY CRAP! 200+ Mistress Cards were dropped in Lighthalzen. Yes, even if it was for six seconds, isn’t that more than enough? Ridiculous. Proof: [ Picture 1 ] [ Picture 2 ] [ Picture 3 ]I want to personally apologize to Inny for the way Cookie treated you and how he just went and kicked you out just because you were doing a good job and he was done with you. You see, players, Cookie has this weird tendency to throw away staff members whenever he’s tired, done, or too lazy to train them. So, instead of Cookie throwing us away like we’re some piece of trash, we’re going to throw him away. This is our official resignation letter. The following GameMasters have collaborated and agreed that they are leaving this server for good.[GM] Snowy[GM] Xyrin[GM] Ender[GM] Chyle[GM] Cronus[GM] Dan[GM] RainbowThe rest of the staff members are extremely amazing and I have never seen so much devotion and loyalty of staff in my life. From what I’ve seen Deviluke, Seryth, Vanity, CoolCat, Ether, and all of the other GMs are great. They really care about the server, it’s just too bad that the Admin had to go and ruin all of their hard work. He is truly undeserving of these staff members.We’re not trying to make anyone leave but only let them realize the truth behind everything that Cookie does. One thing that we cannot tolerate is corruption. Period. I’m pretty sure that our topics will be deleted and he’ll continue to make excuses for all of this. But before you listen to those, take a moment and look at these details, can you really accept these? Whatever the reason, whatever the excuse is this really fair to the rest of the players? Got some questions, feedbacks, or just want to stay in touch? Feel free to e-mail us at: [email protected] wishes to all of you!

TL;DRCookie is corrupt and will always be corrupt. The staff is leaving. Good luck.Oh! And here is this week’s [ Donation Rotation ].


Edit: Oh, I'm sorry I didn't include the links from before. These are the links to everything that's in brackets. Too lazy to insert them properly, enjoy.

You'd see this in the forums if Cookie wasn't busy erasing anything mentioning any of this.
I'm Greil, the guild leader of Avalanche, we take refuge in Lighthalzen. Long story short, we're pretty friendly people, and we started getting some free items from [GM] Cookie by being nice to him on the Teamspeak. At first it was funny having a GR card in BG as a f*** creator for no reason, but after a while getting free items got extremely boring, it killed my motivation to even touch the game. I didn't launch the client all day until a friend told me someone was calling Avalanche corrupt f*** or something of the sort.

Anyways, we got over $200 USD worth of donation items from the server owner [GM] Cookie, a GR card, a Bacso card and a few other assorted things. Let's see what I can remember.

GR Card
Bacso Card http://i50.tinypic.com/qzrvpv.jpg
5x CKs http://i48.tinypic.com/rwjc5d.png
$40 Slotted lower headgears (Probably more than like 6?) http://i50.tinypic.com/qzrvpv.jpg
3x +10 D. Boots and D Mants.
3x +10 +3 Dex Sniping Suits
1.5Bil zeny
2x+ RWC 2008 Helm (Another 40 dollar donation item)
2x s. sunnies

Among other things. Anyways, Cookie always said the rules weren't enforced in his server, and that he would ban whoever he wanted to ban. It's his server afterall.
Sorry Cookie, but you're not the biggest troll in the server. In fact, you don't actually know what trolling is.

A guildmate on Cookie's behavior.
"nothing suprises me. he acts like a rich kid who wants to be popular so he gives his toys."

I wasn't going to make a huge fuss about it because goddamn I'm lazy, but it's sad for the players that are still in the server.

So much for never banning anybody. http://i46.tinypic.com/122jjtj.jpg

Looks like cookie is a nice person but is easily influenced by others leading to this kind of thing.

I wouldn't say he's the first admin out there to be influenced by the kindness of others and giving them items so this kind of thing happens.

Atleast he admits to his mistakes but if you dislike corruption then don't play his server.

Probably not a good idea to give out items cookie if you want to keep your server active.

I don't play your server but I hope you learn your lesson.

Yeah, everyone makes mistakes but it's not his first "sorry, I screwed up, won't happen again" post   :-X

Doesn't look like it has affected the server's population, though. It's still near its peak.

Quote from: Cookie
I had hired my cousin who had started the server with Euphy and I, again. Little did I know, until tonight, she had been doing corrupt things on her Game Master account. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that she had been using my Game Master account and I am taking full responsibility for those actions.

CLASSIC!

Actually, the $40-Umbala and RWC Helm and the like are enough to raise red flags for me.

I guess the players who are still playing after that revelation by the GM team itself either 1) benefited from it 2) have corruption in their blood as well 3) love the free drama. To each his own!

You guys are missing some of the links. Lemme help you out with that.

etc

this thread - screenshot


Picture 1 - Picture 2 - Picture 3

Honestly, Cookie. Don't say "We made some mistakes". Don't pin this kind of s*** on the staff you had the was loyal and yet you still felt the need to throw them under the bus, again. This is your mistake. Not theirs. Goddamn, I love the majority of your staff because they are legitly good people, but you are the whole reason that every time someone said you wanted to talk to me about coming back, I said no.

If this isn't proof that this server owner is unable to grow up and learn from past mistakes, I don't know what is.

Edit: Hmm.. What rule did I break Cookie? I'm very curious. O.O

lol and just yesterday, there was that thread with him screaming I NO IS CORRUPT and flaming / trying to humiliate people who thought so, and now that there's some evidence of some corruption on his part, he's all humble with his sorry.



Great thread to wake up to. A good reflection of his personality, based on how immature he was yesterday about the same idea of him being "corrupt." There's a reason he's in HoS, and he's proud of that reason obviously.

Now I will say something positive, because I do see both sides of a coin, no matter how dirty or clean. Cookie is a fantastic developer and very creative with his scripts, ideas, and websites; however, on a customer service / financial level, he's horrible. Someone else should found a server and run that stuff, and Cookie should just be the behind-the-scenes guy without (or with restricted) CP / [email protected] server access to prevent this stuff from happening.

He could be a great team member, but not founder / admin. The sin of greed runs through all of us. Temptation can be bad. The idea is to control it, and Cookie is a bit too impulsive. To combine that with the idea of making a quick buck in a time where jobs, money, etc. are crucial is just asking for trouble.

This is exactly what I was thinking, too.

Also it's hilarious that people think we were sucking up to him for the items. I pretty much called him a faggot 24/7 on the TS and he'd give us items so that we'd like him more.

/??

EDIT: The mistake (as I pointed out) I made was trusting my cousin with my GM account password hence those screenshots. I would never give a player items after all the drama I went through. Kurama/Greil/The Topic Creator was talking to my cousin (awkward) and that's how they got the items. So, let's be honest guys. Mistake I made was ever associating with that and also hiring my own blood. It's a pretty upsetting situation because I've worked to keep DivinityRO as clean as possible - not saying I've been completely innocent.

Haha I love how you threw your cousin at me while playing "matchmaker" and this all happened after we received the bulk of the items. If you check the dates for the things that happened you'd notice all of this. Stop lying and admit you're corrupt. Tell Serah I hope she finds a nice guy, and really, it's pathetic that you're throwing the blame at her. We were on TS with you when you gave us the items.
