Title: Bad experiences on a server?
Post by: Tom~ on Jan 21, 2010, 09:16 am
Have you ever been on a server you didn't like?
On a server where the admin was an a***ole?
Where you got harassed?
Tell us here!

The only bad experience I've ever had on a server would be... on CursedRO. It was a SHR server that closed a couple of weeks ago.
When I first joined, the server was -awesome-. (I don't really like SHR servers now. Much less if the drop rates are 100% >:( )
Until I met the admin. Oh god. Good, good god. The first time I met "The lo", aka Nate, he was yelling at a GM. This GM went into the PvP room and had "some fun" with us. 2 days before this, I posted an application out of boredom, thinking I wouldn't get hired. Nate said to the GM: "IF YOU EVER DO THAT AGAIN, THE GUY BEHIND YOU WILL REPLACE YOU".
I was like "ehhh, me...? o_o". "Yes, you". And he proceeded to log off.
The next day, I got hired as a trial GM. Rofl.
I must admit that, even thought the server and the community weren't really good, I did an excellent job. I did events, support, some scripts, graphics, etc etc.
I worked there for... uhh, 5-6 months? I saw GMs being fired for being corrupt, some others being re-hired, players using 3rd party programs, players being accussed of using 3rd party programs when it wasn't true, and a reaaaaaaaally terrible admin.
I remember he once hired a guy who donated $45 to him. Rofl. The guy was soooooo retarded. Once, he did a "Hide and seek" event. And he cloaked. LOL.
The admin, Nate, was rude with the newcomers. He once banned a guy who asked him for an event. I understand that can be annoying, but banning him...?

The community, at first, was really good. Mostly english speakers (a record for a SHR server). But, after the fourth month of playing, every english speaker player started to quit, until only 7-8 were still playing. Why? Because some philippinos started duping (well, they always did, but it became notorius), teaming, using WPE, bots, etc. They also harassed a whole guild >:(
After the 5th month, I decided to quit. I had a little fight with the admin, because of a review  :P
Then, the admin got "fired" by the co-admin and the developer (<3), and I got a job as a support GM. I, again, think I did a decent job.
I quitted (again), because players were not following the rules, and WPE/botting became something normal on the server.
I, myself, got harassed after this :>, by the same group of pinoys I banned countless times.

So, that's it. Yes, I can't believe I worked for Nate for such a long time. But I believe I made the server a better place to stay. At least, while it was possible.


Share your bad experiences!  :P

"IF YOU EVER DO THAT AGAIN, THE GUY BEHIND YOU WILL REPLACE YOU".

I think that guy's taking RO a bit too seriously lol that sounds like something an employer for a huge company would say to their degree'd employee.

as for person experience:

JustRO v2 I was a GM and there was this admin named BlueNova who was full of himself. Not only did he and Akinari (main admin) enjoy themselves at unbanning my bots (because they donated lol!), but BlueNova went as far as to call me a Nazi because I jailed his legit for spamming in-town and, knowing it was his legit, made him suffer by not letting him out of jail for a while / not telling him how long he was in there, even when he threatened to "call on BlueNova to punish me" or something lol it was hilarious; I was enjoying myself in any case, though I don't behave as such with players :P He was just a full-of-himself admin of which I don't understand why he'd break the rules on purpose lol maybe a test for GMs but c'mon o_o don't test a GM that'd rather pound your face in for a bit than give you a friendly handshake :)

LimitRO was also terrible; the admin, Lai (HoS ftw), is a total dictator and treats his players (actually, non-donators) like crap. Listening to community suggestions? Yeah /lolol my butt. Just look at my review for some info' :P

Worst experience? I remember this one HR, I think it was DreamlessRO. Horribly biased Admin whose girlfriend was a head GM of sorts(though all she did was harass people who fought her legit's guildmates). I remember watching some of the PVP going on there(which was pretty intense), and then the Admin and his girl on their legits, sitting down in PVP like "Oh, nobody will kill us". They got rocked. Also, their guildmates knew who they were and weren't shy to tell you things such as "u dont kno who ur messin w/ this guild has vips".

They also spied on other guilds during War of Emperium for their own guild. Pretty low stuff. Community was pretty nasty, though strangely enough the guy whom I wanted to strangle for his attitude later on ended up becoming one of my best friends. Weird how that usually works out.

I'd say the only other time I had a really bad experience was old FaithRO(not this shitty new HR that nobody will ever play), back in what is now known as "The Carnage Era". It was a pretty hostile time, where staff and players clashed on a daily basis. Banning wasn't just something done in private, it was something done in public to humiliate the player before they were finally cut. 800+ players cut down to 600 after a few months, then just trickled down until eventually Carnage(the GM doing the public bans, etc) was sacked and the server started to rebuild. Still probably my favourite server of all time, though.

NOU. <3

I think one thing I can recall was on Realm of Ragnarok. This one player was like BFF with the developer, and got away with like everything.
She hated me for no real reason (Just because I was a Helper o_O; ), and so one day she got like 80% of the server to bash me non-stop for at least an hour over the Broadcaster, and was even giving people money to use said NPC to flame me. And anyone who defended me, also got flamed horribly.

Although, it was kinda funny because I was lol'ing the whole time, and they thought they were upsetting me. xD
I just sat in a different town and collected screenshots.

So then later on, the developer gets online (Since he was the first GM to show up, unfortunately), and I tell him what happened. All he does is say that this player was "just being obnoxious" and couldn't really punish her. >_>;

@Yusifer - OMG I KNOW! MINE TOO. Q_Q

I've had many bad experiences, The first was on RaijeRO, when one of the GMs was on his legit, he is emo alot so he rage quits, and when my friends and I formed a new guild and sat in his map for his guild, he ragequitted saying he'd ban us on 1 insult, Though funny, got annoying later on. The other bad experience I forgot the server, but it was ran by a 14 year old annoying kid. Me and my friend beat his guild in a WoE Event and he logs on his GM and shut woe off, and jailed me.

Ooh, I remember another server. It was full of pinoys and run by a guy in CA. My friends and I gathered up the forces and took it to PVP, where the "VIPs", aka donators ran the show. This one day, we were practically running PVP as if it was a WoE castle and taking out all the VIPs who were in a guild called "PIRATES". Then, the "Philippines GM" shows up, jails the entire guild, bans my guild leader, under the reason "u r killing all player PINOY". When asked to elaborate, he said "vip > u". Needless to say, he got fired after we spoke to the Admin.

Wish I could remember the name of this server, it was pretty fun despite the comedy and drama surrounding the donators.
Title: Re: Bad experiences on a server?
Post by: ShadowSappy on Jan 21, 2010, 01:29 pm
XD...Temjin, That server seemed to be laughs 24/7 I bet, but a pathetic GM, I dislike people whom give donators special rights, or donators who think they deserve special rights.

Its just a discussion where people can share their bad experiences.

But, you're kinda right. It might turn into a thread where people try to make look bad other servers on purpouse.

~Edit~
If you were talking about my first post, then you're wrong. CursedRO died already, why would I like to make it look bad?
Title: Re: Bad experiences on a server?
Post by: Cecilia on Jan 23, 2010, 01:04 am
I'll agree with Tom about CursedRO.

I got banned, then offered by the admin to be unbanned if I donated?

That's the thing that got to me.

If I had to list all the things, I'd be writing a novel here >.>

My bad experience:

I held a GM position for a new SHR a year ago called "BunnehRO". My older brother(a giant d=o=u=che) donated one hundred dollars and weaseled his way into the admin(Elven)'s good graces. There were concerns about WoE. Elven was not addressing the issue, he felt there was no problem. At peak time I had most of the players online come to prontera and I asked them a few questions, like what they'd like to see improved in Woe, what, if anything was wrong. I screenshotted their answers, held an event, told Elven and sent him the screenies. He thanked m, said he'd take a look, and then I went to sleep. My older brother then said some false things to the admin, because in the morning I was fired for 'corruption and making players rebel". I was told by Elven that I had been banned for trying to start a 'rebellion', and for giving away items. I told him to check the logs, that I never gave away anything. He replies with, "I don't need to, I know the truth now." And the same day, my older brother became a head GM(with no trial or anything -.-), and soon was fired/banned/and quit server because he gave himself ahura mazda, among other things on his 'legit'.


Another one:

After I had been fired, and before i quit server, I became famous for spamming yggs. I got soooo much crap for this. I took a lot of damage, and the yggs let me rape people over and over. No one else used yggs, probably due to some misplaced "pride" or "honor" crap, and thus I got s*** for it. GMs got involved(monitor duels to count my uses), mentally disabled players got pissy('u r teh cheetz cuz u buy da yggs n we dunt dat makes u teh dumz"), and I got s*** on everywhere.

So, I quit.

Then, two months later, I saw an ad for KitsuneRO. It looked very similar to Bunneh, and I joined. quite a few players from Bunneh played and staffed there, and while there I was again discriminated against for my amassing and use of yggs. I was subject to stupid GMs(multiple at once) jailing em then arguing in kami about whether or not I was a bot, or had 'edited' or stats or used WPE. All the while, I was protesting. I had two friends who were pretty competent in the Staff. They knew I was not doing anything wrong, and funny enough, they stat checked the accusatory GM, and found she had edited her stats for her GM. The admin, her buddy, supposedly straightened her out and she never did it again, supposedly. Though on ym last night on the server, I was spamming yggs, murdering pvp, and the accusatory GM's legt walks in and kills me, and everyone else, we form parties and try to team, nothing works.

I ask my 2 friends on the staff to check her stats, and shes cheated again. I ask the admin to @stat her and see if shes edited ehr stats again, and he says sh hasnt, i get screenies from my two friends, and send them to the admin. I get banned a few minutes later, and my email suddenly is the target of adult pictoral sites and scam spams.

Those are the worst two experiences Ive had on RO >:(

Worst experience ever would be.....I can't remember, but have you ever notice something. Like, when a Admin, or GM clearly did something wrong and you confront them, and suddenly the entire server starts to bash you?.

Well, I don't see anyone talking anything bad about my servers XD. Though Realm of Ragnarok---I had close friends there (all of the staff members), you talking about Mike XD?

So, I quit.

I can confirm this story, because I was a player on Bunneh at the same time.  I actually got banned by the Admin shortly after Mickie quit because I stood up for him during all this c*** and afterwards when it became apparent to the general populace that there was some severe favoritism and bulls*** going on.  They also had some seriously OP'd c*** going on, such as the Beelzebub card NPC and then a custom two slotted Clip that only cost the player about 1mil worth of stuff, and that was the stuff generally available, not just for donators.  And Ygg spamming was one of the things that Mickie asked about during the WoE arguements, and everyone there said that it didn't matter. 

Oh, and Bunneh died about a month after Mickie quit and Elven banned the players that sided with him.

I've been on mostly good servers, except one. I will not say the name of the server, but it's a well-known Midrate.

Anyways, this happened back in 2007. I remember sitting in @go 13(Niflheim), when suddenly all the GMs started quitting. Everyone online got... I think it was 3 Kiel cards, 2 Ifrits, 2 spare Angras(I had Angra at the time), and 24 Fallen Bishop Hibrams. A GM spawned so many monsters in Prontera that the server started lagging. Another GM gave out GM codes and players started getting banned left and right. I returned much later, in 2009, and looked at the donates. When I saw the overpowered effects, my jaw hit the floor. Needless to say, I'm not playing that server ever again. ^^' The server was bad enough as it was, but the GM incident was the icing on the cake for me. Never again. I did not have anything happen to me personally, but many of my friends have horror stories to tell.

Hmm well..
there was this one time on poison, a SHR, i dont remember it much but if i remember correctly i was argueing with a GM and for no reason i got a 2 hour mute (i think) so i log on my other char to see why she did that, because i had stopped before she muted me, and the next thing i know a higher ranked GM bans me for 24 hours (thank god i had a different account), and i had done absolutely nothing, before she banned me she told me to stop, as a warning so i did, but then the next thing i know like 5 minutes later, doing absolutely nothing, i wasnt even talking o.O i got banned (like i said before)
so i log onto my other account, complain some more, and stop.. since all it was gonna get me was another ban :/
even my friends who were there thought it was unfair, and i was right.

That was about my worst expierence with a server also, for pretty much the same reasons.  Considering I was wronged, IMO, and I related it to the public, I think I did pretty fine.

my worst experience was as the owner of Noob Fury RO with my boyfriend at the time.
i broke up with him and he, in a very mature attitude, changed all server passwords, banned me, stole the server, told everyone i quit because i wanted, and never gave me any f**ing credits for all the npcs I made there.
it wasn't a good server anyway, it died some months after that.
Another bad one was when I spent 2 months making an orc hero helm on qRO then server wiped, but was just a big frustation, nothing compared to the situation above.

After donating hundreds of dollars to a server, becoming staff, tolerating all with that drama and s***, learning to do stuff as far as development for them, modifying GRFs, learning to script, becoming co-admin, then getting banned for banning macro-users, then becoming staff back again, then leaving, then getting accused of "hacking" the server, I was wrongfully IP & all my accounts were blocked.

lol, what? I don't even have a girlfriend dude. And I hate asians? Yeah, that's why I'm a white guy taking japanese classes and am a total otaku. And no offense but FILIPINOS (thats who ur taking about when u say asians, i already know) dont donate to any server. Ask any server owner and they will agree. Note: I do need donations to keep rro alive, its a donation ran server, its paid for by the players, i fund it in no way myself, this method has kept rro alive for 5 years. As the players won't let it die on their watch, I simply manage it, but in reality it's the player's server, as they pay for it to be online.

fact: 150 ppl online, only 60 are autotrade.

I'll never close my server :) I haven't for 5 years, why would I now?

Post by: Yukino on Mar 03, 2010, 01:08 am
In fact, it's so hard to get donations at times when players don't have the heart or ability to donate online -cash in person is useless-.

I faced many dramas. What I've noticed is that... so many dramas have to do with Admins dating each other or players fighting over one another in terms of love. Somehow, most players get dragged into such situations. For me, they happened mostly on Super High Rate servers.

I got banned by the same person who wanted to work for my server afterwards. Rejected right off.
Edit: I was banned because of his unjust accusation. He was one who blamed many people for his mistakes which caused the Head Admin to be confused. Here's a ban, there's a ban, a ban for everyone please.

At GorthexTiger: LOL, that sounds complicated yet interesting O_O.

You'll get tons of threads opened up then XD. This thread is just for past experiences and most of which are currently dead servers. These experiences aren't really current; hence, people don't want to open a new thread about it. It's just a place for discussion and reading about what other people had to face in the past.

xD The cynicism and bitterness is drowning me here, guys. Cheer up a little.

The RO private-server scene did have good times in the past. Even though servers seem to have always bumped into roadblocks or "shameful demise" type of events, while it lasted, the days were good.

I remember the days when there were so few servers that they still followed the naming convention "<one letter>RO," I started in one known simply as LRO back then. Things were so buggy, before 2-2 classes, even SP regen was a pain (or non-existent) xD But still it was so fun to meet with random people and party for a while.

Sure, the only bad experience I recall mentioning was with the server I stayed with the most, one that was known as BakaRO. No drama really, the server collapsed due to greed... just when the server had reached the 100 people mark (and thus the future was looking excitingly brilliant) the owner decided to split the population in two by having an offspawned "donators-only" server. So people were supposed to start on the free server, and then after donating a certain amount, move over to the "better server" (others could donate in their place to help them be promoted, too).

Needless to say, the population was divided, people left, and thus began the end for that server. A shame because all the regulars of the server KNEW this was going to happen and the admin went ahead anyway despite our warnings :<

Sadly, that was my longest experience on any single server (probably a year or a bit more), afterwards every single server I stepped in seemed to be cursed to die a horrible death soon afterwards xD'

My rent costs me $280p/m, Australian.
USD$258.

I'm sure lots of servers can reach that amount per month.

Lemme share two 'life' stories,

So, there was this high-rate I played on. Fantastically fun, full of well designed quests and other things. It turned out to be one of the worst wastes of time in my life. Lesson learned: never trust a high-rate owner to do anything right consistently, and never invest too much time and sentiment into a character on a high-rate.

And I once GM'd on an unmentionable server. It had a massive GM team, and most of them were quite likeable. Of course, there's always one bad apple in the bunch. Anyways, that bad apple turned out to be totalitarian and abusive - to everyone, including the GM team. Even the server owner would dance around him (a timid owner? o.O). Me, being the new guy and all, would be saddled with all the complaints and trouble that he caused. At some point I got fed up and gave that GM a piece of my mind. Needless to say, he didn't like me very much after that. But I'm stubborn to a fault, so I didn't quit because the coals under my feet are hot. After a few weeks, he quit.

Hmm

Back in 2007 I played a server called GatheringRO.  The server was nice overall, but the majority of the GMs had the IQ of a rock. o_O  That's actually why I ended up leaving the server.

I don't quite remember all that they did that was horribly stupid, but I do remember some of the GM's bot checking skills being ridiculous.  (I.E.: If you stand around AFK in a field, we'll ban you.  Girl comes on and asks why, and the GM says just don't stand around AFK in the field again!  That wasn't me, but I remember seeing it from the forums and I was like..wow o_O;)

If you're ignorant toward what you're doing, don't do it at all, because all you're doing is making your entire server look bad.

The same GMs don't appear to be there anymore (Thank God).

As said, there were other things of vast idiocy experienced within the server from the staff itself, but I don't quite remember what that was. (Too long ago, and the server wasn't personally worth remembering due to experiences back then.)

Last summer I was playing on eternityRO v2, there I got interested in participating in their forum events.  Post a unique build and some other one.  Regardless of whatever it was, the event would end, and there will be a "judging phase" to determine the winner.

I waited... and waited...but there was no reply
then I decided to quit after 4 months (for other reasons as well). 
Checked again 5 months later, still nothing happened.  Good thing, I only spent my summer there. =(

Post by: SirFuzzi on Apr 18, 2010, 02:31 pm
FaithRO. (read my review if you haven't, or if you care; it explains a lot of the story)

I often bounce servers with two great friends of mine in RO, and we'd happened to land there. It was all going good until I took a minute to check the donations; two idiot G-Xs (in a guild named Akatsuki-- I wish I were lying) were standing nearby as I began to rant about them. My good buddy and I began discussing that these were overpowered and this pair of G-Xs began to call us the usual slew of "I'm 16 and I found an internet" names like 'noob,' 'gay,' etc.

We ended up leaving because we decided that the server wasn't worth our time. It really wasn't, and the mods there were idiots. I hope it gets shut down, because servers whose communities perpetuate the thinning out of population kind of defy the point of an MMO.

Another good one was ReikonRO, and nobody remembers that one.

I, single-handedly, ended up pissing off a new GM. I hadn't been around in a while and when I rejoined, it was straight out of a horror book; everyone was scared about this new mod. Being the man that I am, I spoke out against him. Multiple times in the server, and then on the forums. What I had realized was that I was picking a fight with the moderation.

What I hadn't realized was that he was a programmer and I was most certainly nothing of the sort. He ended up force-shutting the server down. It took me and two or three others to talk him down; after I'd called him down, see, he got offended. And he took it personally. He kept searching for me in-game (but he lived with the Ozzies and I was in school, so he never did catch me) and once called me out saying "he wanted to have fun," in this totally menacing way I guess. I went on the forums and told him to stop being a **** to the players and to stop abusing his power like the fat kid in a sandbox.

Whoo-ee. As I said earlier, he force-shut the server down. The head admin began begging and pleading with him; I simply took it to face value with him and asked him what the hell he was being a **** for. It turned out that, really, he was enforcing the rules, if just a little too forcibly. So we talked and we actually became great friends, which doesn't sound so bad but I'm not sure I liked anything that preceded it. That was the most drama I've ever seen on the internet.

(before anyone asks, ReikonRO is long dead and was a very small server; I was the infamous and feared Ingram Prisken on there.)

It just goes to show; be careful what you say, yeah? Everyone's human, and just because it's the internet, doesn't mean you can't offend someone.

on one server, the female GM i guess didnt like me because i was a close friend to many of her male guild members. Being the tomby that I am, it's always easier for me to talk to guys than girls.
she banned me and when i asked what was the reason she just said "you deserve it"   Meh...whatever...

on another server, one of the co-admins had a crush on a player. so he would send hateful/harrassing PMs to her boyfriend...who soon became her ex. the guy in question was a buddy of mine who showed me the screenshots. We just left that server. wasnt even worth complaining about.

I like my current server way more so oh well.

exRO:

A RL buddy of mine fell in love with the head-GM, Nesh. They talked and became a couple for a few days, until my buddy broke up.
After that he got banned permanently by the admin of exRO. No reason attached.
More than that, my buddy played on my accounts sometimes too, I barely have time, so my accounts have all been banned as well.

Later the admin talked with my buddy, he actually banned all our accounts because he was in love with this head-GM too.
