    I called a GM for help with an eventitem on Drachenfels, two days ago. Already made it from place 12 to 6 in the waitingline. I just came back after 3 years, but is this normal nowadays?

    Wow. GM help is typically slow, but 2 days sounds like a new low.

    I waited 5 hours for a GM the other day and I simply could not wait any longer and logged out. I wanted to cancel my accounts on the spot, I was that frustrated. 2 days is insane!!!!!!

    DAOC? I haven't been that one yet - but I have been told "Thank you for playing Warhammer"...

    I have never really had trouble getting a GM response on an issue - except around the time AOS came out. Then the shards crashed long before the GM could respond. :p

    I used a race change token and now my character has -15 physical resist. As far as I know, there's no way to fix this without gm intervention. :(

    I like how the GM paging is so archaic and sometimes works wrongly:

    - Using a code that might be "wrong" tells you to contact a GM. Contacting a GM tells you to go somewhere else.

    - Cancelling a page doesn't cancel it.

    - There are no efficient options for reporting scripters.

    Just as examples. In addition, most of the verbal abuse that happens these days is done in chat. Part of a GM's role should be to monitor chat, perhaps.

    I play most days and call a GM less than once a year. If there are many like you that see them at at least once a month, it helps explain why they can't keep up with genuine calls.

    Got a "GM" Throwe a few days ago, on 2 flaming heads the house owner was too young to remove. It took a long time but not more then an hour. We share GM's with other games, and if none are available its handled by mythic staff during business hours. It's not something to quit over. Just reword your page. Most times if you missword the request for help you get over looked. I know your upset but this can be fixed.

    I hope the hiring of new gms happens soon.
     
  16. I spotted a wild GM the other day and tried to tame it. Unfortunately, it angered way to easily, lb'd me like 1000 times in a second and as my body was hitting the ground, I magically landed in the Bucs Den prison. Was like "the f***?" and went about my business.:gee:
