    Subject line says it all.

    EDIT: Says it all except for the God-damned verb.

    Can the new rewards HAVE names, please.

    I appreciate the offer, but no thank you.

    Mistakes are inevitable, even when they make you feel like cutting off one's own head with broken glass. No sense in pretending they didn't happen.

    Thanks, though.

    If you decide you want to correct the mistake, just hit "edit" on the post, then select "Go Advanced" and you can edit the titles...


    And yes! Please give them a name besides "Missing String". :p

    I thought the official names were going to be Cliloc and the ever famous MegaCliloc.?.?.?
    ;)
     
  7. Once someone else posts, it won't let us change the title. I tried what you said, didn't work.

    Is a Megacliloc related to a Megaspawn?

    I still like what was suggested in another thread: Snuggie of Regeneration. They could change the graphic and make the cloak cover the front of the character!

    My suggestions are:

    Talisman of Space Wastage

    Cloak of Barely Any Effect

    and since there is a goargoyle version of the cloak:

    Wings of Barely Any Effect



    Because they all SUCK.

    Zero thought went into their creation, and it shows. Patheticly low mods on rehashed items from the last event.

    These 'rewards' would be laughable coming from the newbie quests in New Haven. As part of a 'major' plot event, they are insulting.

    People call them 'Cloak of Error' and 'Talisman of Error' in Europa. I dont think that any other name would describe them better.

    It's disappointing that this post, referencing RL politics, which I'm informed is against the terms of service, is still up. The troubles in Greece and other European countries, together with the accusations against U.S. President Obama that he's a "Socialist," shows that Socialism and the political debates surrounding it are alive and well.

    This post references an RL political debate that's very much alive and should be deleted, as posts I've made that were nowhere near as political as this one have been,

    -Galen's Player

    PS: By the way, in case you were wondering why I'm publicly discussing moderator actions (or lack of actions in this case), this thread proves that, if nothing else, it's no longer disallowed to discuss moderator actions publicly on Stratics. The thread survived for over 24 hours and several mods or other Stratics officials actually posted in it before it was finally locked.

    This, this post, logically, should thus be quite safe.

    While I agree that the rewards from this event aren't up to snuff by any means....

    Umm. *coughs*

    Sorry....But isn't it exaggerating a bit to say they would be laughable as New Haven Noob Artifact?

    Don't get me wrong, I agree with you in essence.....

    Re: Can the new rewards have names please?

    I wrote a reply assuming you meant the thread, but now I realize you may have meant the item itself.

    Just in case what's what you mean, what is the name?

    My thread title has correct grammar. But it seems I ran out of spaces in my previous reply.

    The old UFO series = FTW!! Although I enjoyed Afterlight(with the "Rebalance" modification) from the new series.. Apocalypse wasn't as good as Terror From The Deep though!

    S!ck -

    There were multiple competing attempts to revive the UFO/X-Com concept, and I was kinda partial to the UFO: Extraterrestrials game, since it had variants of the Snakemen built in, and a number of fan-mods to make it into a modern-graphics version of the original UFO/X-Com.

    Even though the base game is set on a colony world, and little was actually done on Earth, there was enough from what I saw included to make it where the game already had many of the Earth graphics (like the planet itself) in it for modder to access (and I suspect, not having played the mods, that the "nations/oceans" skin can be removed from the colony world, as it is blatantly Mars' features poking through that other world's graphics, perhaps to allow a modder to create a more intense in-depth Mars mission when modded the other way).

    Re: Can the new rewards have names please?

    Looks like someone fixed it at some point.

    For some reason, though, I don't see the correction every time I look at the thread.

    Weird.

    Oh well, thanks to whomever it was. I now know how to correct a thread subject line, but decided to leave mine incorrect anyway. Under most conditions, it is in the long-run getter to learn from one's own mistakes than attempt to erase them.

    However, in this case someone fixed it for me, so thank you.

    :)

    On GL they do have names: Human Missing String, Gargoyle Missing String, and Tali Missing String.

    We have all been searching for the damn string though!

    A Cloak With No Name

    On the first part of the journey,
    I was looking at all the life.
    There were reapers and birds. and orcs and things,
    There was sand and hills and rings.
    The first one I met, Avery had the buzz,
    And Ricardo, was rambling aloud.
    The lamp was hot, and the books were found,
    But a patch was no where around.

    I've been through the Britannia with a cloak with no name,
    It felt like this event was lame.
    In the Sosaria you can choose your name,
    'Cause megaclioc's and player data just aren't the same.
    La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
    La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

    After nine days, in the Britannian sun,
    I ran into some reds.
    After 10 days, of Feluccian fun,
    all my toons were dead.
    And the story Mark told, of a event that flowed,
    Made me sad to think I was misled.

    You see I've been through the Britannia with a cloak with no name,
    It felt like this event was lame.
    In the Sosaria you can choose your name,
    'Cause megaclioc's and player data just aren't the same.
    La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
    La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

    Oh my.

    Nice.

    For my part I've decided to adopt the Europa server term: The Cloak of Error, the Talisman of Error.

    Seriously, EA.....Name the God-damned items.

    This event was seriously flawed to start, and since then we've gotten rewards with no names, two locations that were clearly picked to not just allow but encourage PK-camping, seriously flawed fiction.....

    The no-name items is, at least fixable, or at least appears like it should be.

    At least apologize to us and explain. Even if it's weak.
