    It's not bunk, because it's about principle. A game that is sliding towards care bare safe space-ism is not a game I want to continue to support.

    All sensible. But we should begin with the principle of "if it's not broken don't fix it." If it has been a game system since the game's inception and hasn't seemed to create any major or chronic...

    Yeah, but the one thing happens to be of an existential nature to some, like me. The cost of living in an open world is that sometimes, very infrequently, bad things happen. You are also free to take...

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. If the flag is instituted there's a good chance I'm gone as well. This is a principles based move. I'm a warrior and I don't steal; I can only be stolen from. But...

    I've intimated that instituting the NOSTEAL flag would cause me to take a hard look at leaving (with my annual revenue) for good. I signed up for open world play and interaction, not safe space....

    The "consent" argument being bandied about in discord is intriguing, like a guy lightning his own farts on fire is intriguing. That's like saying you want to play Mario brothers, but don't "consent"...

    Wholeheartedly agree. NOSTEAL flag is a terrible idea and I say this as a warrior that probably gets stolen from a fair amount. Heck I even sent Candor a 1m silver tip because I appreciate his...

    Agreed that it's not new revenue.

    The only other thing I can cite to is an investor release by Stillfront from 2017:

    Total entries (accounted for in group arena and single) - minus giftboxes - minus event boxes and adjusted for simucoin pricing at the 999.99 package rate gives you the low end.

    The only other...

    Intermittent silver auctions are a decent way since he can "crowdsource" by requiring each GM to make 5 items and come up with a 80-100 item slate. It seems obvious to me that after Stillfront took...

    You get no argument from me about the whole "use of GS/DR golden geese to roll the dice on highly speculative development bets" is terrible mismanagement of the game we love. If GS4 resources were...

    Lich kept GS viable? That's like saying we can make horse and buggy viable transportation again if we retrofit them with high speed aluminum wheels with space age ball bearings.

    Yes, if the devs have stated said way is against policy. And plus it destroys the very thing that has kept a 30 year old text game viable. If I couldn't click on a name and know I could interact with...

    You're probably right here. I talked to former DRealms players who switched to GS and told me of a dead, sterile world filled with bots and I resolved to not let GS suffer the same fate to the extent...

    AFK scripting is a pernicious culture destroyer and will eventually destroy the game if left unchecked. Ask the former DRealms players who moved over to GS. Regular scripting as far as I remember, is...

    To be clear, I think GS and, to a lesser extent, DR, are amazing cash cows. Low overhead, diehard (literally) playerbase. The most golden of gooses that if taken care of in its ripe old age should...

    They need to take care of revenue drivers (i.e. big whales and book brokers). Take a page out of casinos and really make sure these folks feel taken care of and heard, even though they play by the...

    GS is not in the red, but Simu likely is. The screenshot below is from the 21 annual report.

    It's stealing, plain and simple.

    For better or worse, the price tag devs set on exclusive items/drops and in-game rewards is mindless drudgery + fee (sub or entry). AFK scripting attempts to...

    They made an educated guess on what that particular individual would pay, and they guessed right. People have paid more for items since then (over 2x that amount) but those were P2P sales.

    Canít really compare what you paid for an item 20 years ago with the current market. A lot of the whales whose fortunes are tied to crypto put a lot of those gains into the GS market. For items that...

    Yup. As I understand, the first time you get caught AFK scripting, you end up on a permanent "frequent flyer" list. You're more likely to get checked if you're on this list.
