Server not being used for testing purposes, but rather advertisement. Occurs once every 2 hours, approximately.

Wow, all that effort to advertise a server that doesn't work. A round of applause for these geniuses.

Removing the announcement from the WoE script would solve that problem. The test server should be neutral.

The test server is neutral. It's twits like PhaseRO's finest that pull stunts like that.

Does the Test server even have GMs on to boot people like this?

I know it is, I meant it more in the sense of should be - "remain", hence the suggestion beforehand to remove the part of the WoE script that announces the name of the breaker and what guild they're in :P

As far as I know, that's just mean. God... Phase RO is just the over-glorified ressurection of Legacy RO.

Have you seen their "site"? Every link except one sends you to the same page. Makes me wonder what the server is going to be like.

@Gabrielle: I understand, but why should the test server have the "idiot" rule, i.e; somebody now has to alter the entire server for EVERYBODY else because a bunch of degenerates can't use common sense? Might fix the problem, hardly fair. :X

I don't see how it's not fair if there's no announcement. lol, it's not like there's an official WoE, and who really needs to know if you're testing kills on an emp, or what "Guild" is testing breaking an emp? Saves people from being spammed if someone's testing their build too. The announcement really doesn't help or hurt the aspects of testing. Sure, there should be a no-advertizing rule, but the announcements serve no purpose either, and it's a 2 minute or so fix if even that to remove the announcement. XD

I would see it this way:

Anyone with an intension to damage reputation of any server could have pulled something like that.

Just from the surface seeing the guild name does not mean the server is doing that to advertise.  It would be very stupid and desparate to do such thing.  I would believe that it's some other people trying to give a server a bad name.

I mean I could now make a guild called eterityro.com and then go own every castles then is that mean eterityro will be blamed for advertising when they actually didn't? 

Same goes for newsletter, the sender name is so easy to fake.  Just a while ago mikka or someone that got a hold of the old qualilty RO user database and spammed everyone of them with server advertisement blowing about how friendly, how secure, how stable and how uncorrupted his/her server is in order to get ppl back to ro or pull ppl that is playing from other server.  These things are so easy to fake and it will give a bad name to the victim or actually help him/her ... depend how the person receiving the message sees it.

Anyway, my point is don't see things only on the surface.  The test server is fine as it is.  Anyone can make a guild name and start doing stuff, it's not a server that you are going to play for life so I will not bother putting any regulation on it.

Look at it this way;  PhaseRO has no form of advertisement whatsoever at the moment by word of mouth, and they haven't intended too either.  What makes you think that they would go onto RMS test server and do that?  Don't blame the server, blame either some idiotic player doing that or like yC said, someone who wanted to give the server a bad name.

The links aren't working because the pages haven't been designed yet.  Website means nothing about a server.  Look at yours for example, all you have is an image which links to the forums or the CP, then compare it to, for example, essenseRO's.  The quality of the server doesn't change.  So stop judging a book by it's cover, especially when you know nothing of the content. :|
