Most important[PvP](svs, svp, regen, damage): <1,2,3,4>
Most important[PvE](svs, svp, regen, damage): <1,2,3,4>



Are we supposed to give a vote of say human, elf, half-elf, dwarf?
(not my vote, just examples)
Did I understand the format on this one right?

Or is it for each category?

I'm not stupid, I know the former was, hence, why i didn't ask for clarification on it, just the latter.

Ah, but you forget that the snake people are the true Overlords of this country, Bush is just a shadow puppet to supplant their reign until they are forced to expose themselves to the nonbelievers shortly before the systematic obliteration of all opposing entities.

For least knowledgeable player (with knowledgeable misspelled), I interpreted it as the archons that doesn't know anything but pretends to know it all.

Anyone else think that Forfeit thinking that Pike and Teleview are useless is a sad statement about the affair of the current breed of player?

Worst player(past year):


:hand: If I am one of the worst, how is it that you lose to me when I am using a jade wand and fireball against your fire resist? (Or do you call me the worst because I still used a jade wand and fireball to kill you despite your fire resist.)

Technically, it was a combination of several things.

:yy: You were not intelligent enough to switch weapons to something that wouldn't be resisted by every ogre/dracon/druid/lucky-s.o.b.-with-a-rare-item in the game. Why using Fireball and Jade Wand, you showed that you were inexperienced in PK combat.

:yy: Spamming the same spell (Fireball) against an Archon Hunter master recently showed you were inexperienced in NPC combat.

:yy: That Master also showed you are poorly experienced with working with a formation (casting damage instead of healing who needed it).

:yy: Your subsequent death to an ethereal hunter also requires the following information:
:candle: The Hunter and the Master were not formed at the time
:candle: You refused to flee, which can be taken that you were not in favor of it forming with the Master, but that is a non-issue, since...
:candle: the form can be split up by all PCs leaving and splitting into two groups, one waiting for your ethereal to rift away, and the other for the Master.

So the evidence is fairly conclusive. Those choices were based off of (my) player expierience and (other) player logs.

:skull: Also, since you can't let a red herring drop, my death to you was due to my (at that time) having roughly 2400 HP +/- 25, fully geared.:skull:

Cazzira is a she, and is pretty much the only Witch PKer, with several Archon kills under her belt, even though she is still pre-Hero. Checking the PK record, looks like she is an opportunist PKer as well.

Well, its more-so I am sloppy and I didn't know your race until after I nearly killed you.

Spamming the same spell (Fireball) against an Archon Hunter master recently showed you were inexperienced in NPC combat.


Since I have a key of gath and we hard half a dozen people casting heal, there was no need for me to spam heal with everyone else since the hunter was barely hurting any of us. Also, due to the low sp cost of fireball, not being plagued, and my SP regen bonus, I won't run out of sp when using this spell.

Normally, I'd use a lightning bolt + magic dart or cure light + magic dart combination so I could force hunters to cast non-harmful spells over rounds, thus missing attacks and defenses. However, masters are already spammy enough and our victory was ensured.

Furthermore, doing nothing but spam heal is not the best tactic for beating every mob. Mobs die far faster when you actually deal damage. If I am not plagued, I will have about 1500sp left after a mob like a master; thus, there is little reason for me not to use offensive magic when everyone is at 90% health.

That Master also showed you are poorly experienced with working with a formation (casting damage instead of healing who needed it).


No one needed it. It was a tremor spammer and we were all at 80% to 90% health the whole time.

You refused to flee, which can be taken that you were not in favor of it forming with the Master, but that is a non-issue, since...


Refused to flee? I wasn't asked to flee and I was fighting my hunter in that room before you guys were. After I got my hunter, you guys got a normal hunter, killed it, then got a master while I was still busy fighting my hunter alone. Not to mention its kind of hard to flee when you are under the affects of web and can't calm because it would interfere with the master, no? In addition, once I calmed, my hunter would have formed with your hunter.

Furthermore, since we had such a large formation (7?), I was not needed to help with the master, and I should have been able to solo my eth with no trouble; however, since I was casting heal spells on you guys instead of on myself, my HP got low, and my heal spells kept getting countered, so I died.

You blame me for the mishap; however, why couldn't a single one of the six of you cast a heal spell on me. I could argue the form failed me.

Also, since you can't let a red herring drop, my death to you was due to my (at that time) having roughly 2400 HP +/- 25, fully geared.


You do realize I didn't have max hp or sp either, right? Plus, unlike you, I am a human paladin/priest without any racial resistances and no battle rage so you should be doing a bit better than myself when I am carelessly spamming fireball and using a jade wand.

Uh, no flak here, but there are (or were) other Witches, and killing archons means very little as to the skill one possesses when people like Vlidash, Calum, Lonar, etcetera can all become Archons.

Yeah, because mobs that have scripted/emote attacks/spells really have to worry about someone spamming magic dart so they'll counterspell it?

Yeah, sounded cooler when it wasn't mentioned that Vlidash and his ilk can easily become Archons.

Who are the other witches? o_0 I can't think of any other than Trae that might PK regularly.
