2008 - Review of last year's events

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Nenime, Jan 17, 2009.

    What was your favorite? What was the worst in your opinion? What changed since?

    :thumbsup: Spring Cleaning Event
    :thumbsup: Greater Dragons
    :thumbsup: Evil Visitors

    :cursing: Scriptors
    :cursing: Connection Lag

    To me the Spring Cleaning Event was really cool. I hope they will repeat Collections like this every now and then.

    The introduction of the Greater Dragon was fascinating too. (Please don't start the PvP discussion again! :bdh:) For the (passionated) PvM-Tamer they brought much more tactical potentialities to fight in groups. Some said that all other pets have become obsolente now. I don't see that - as nobody else on Tamer's Forum. They are just one pet out of others. Nice but not irreplacable.

    The appearance of the Vanguard forces and the ... uhm what was the their name again? ... this 6 über-warriors which came to Luna and such. That was fun! :D

    Oh yes and the massive invasion. Not the ongoing one. The Chinese Scripter Gang (no racial offence) which besieged Painted Caves and other lucrative places for 24/7. I don't know how the situation is on your Shard but on Drachenfels I haven't seen them for a long time. If this is due to the intervention of the Devs - good job, guys!

    The massive lag which appeared by the end of the year was really annoying. It it slightly better now for me but still worse than it was before.

    I remember another one: the annihilation of the "Sampire"-template. Man, what a powerful buildup that was. +Necro items are cheap to buy now everywhere :D.

    And the coming of SA - if an announcement counts too.

    This is a very fine place to talk to ourselves, isn't it, my precious? - Yes, Sméagol, yes. rolleyes:

    Anyway, the leaving of Jeremy was sad. Although she was not directly part of the game. Anyone heard of her lately?

    I think lots of people already discussed a lot of that here =)

    OMG! LOL :D

    Thanks alot, Teeshy - errr, person who speaks to us from the shadows.

    Aaand again I made a fool of myself. *cheerio* :dunce:

    Must have overlooked the other one. I was already wondering. - You mean WE were wondering, do you? - Yess, we, precious.

    So please excuse. One more reason to shut up. :wall:

    If I wasn't constantly making a (bigger) fool of myself, my life would be a lot less entertaining (and fun! ;))

    My Dad always told me:

    "If you can't laugh at yourself...laugh at other people!"

    I have tried to live that philosophy.


    I have also heard it said that man is at his most humorous, when he takes himself too seriously.

    I would have to agree. :)
