Why do players bother me?

Why can't people solve their own problems? Is it my job to take care of every little issue that crops up in your game?

I don't think so.

This evening, after 249 absolutely inane GM calls, I was ready to scream. Honestly, each and every one was a waste of my time.

Here's a run down of the major topics:

a) someone just stole my monster. Ban him.
b) that guy won't talk to me while fishing. Ban him.
c) that guy is speaking another language. Ban him.

I mean, damn. Can't you guys work this out with childish name calling like adults?

And use your Blacklist, dammit. We put that in, so that we wouldn't have to do any work.

It performs two helpful functions:

1) it blocks other people from talking to you
2) it blocks you from talking to me

But noooooooo. People have to keep making stupid GM calls, so that I can hold their hand and tell them everything will be all right.

So, I'm at call 249 and ready to shoot myself. Then number 250 comes in.

GM Call Description: Fell in water. Help please.

Do I look like David Hasselhoff to you?

Here's how it went:

[GM]Dave>> Yadda yadda... so you fell in the water.
Player>> Yeah. I was walking...
[GM]Dave>> Wow. Great story. Made me cry.
[GM]Dave>> What do you want?
Player>> Uhh... can you help me?
[GM]Dave>> Sure. Swim.
Player>> How do I get out?
[GM]Dave>> Swim to shore.
Player>> There is no shore.
Player>> I'm under the airship.
[GM]Dave>> Why are you under the airship?
Player>> I fell.
[GM]Dave>> Sounds like you're hacking.
[GM]Dave>> I'm going to have to ban you.
Player>> WHAT?!
[GM]Dave>> We take you airshippy hackers serious.
Player>> I'm not hacking. It's a glitch.
[GM]Dave>> Sure it is. *coughhackercough*
[GM]Dave>> Banned
[GM]Dave>> Is there anything else I can help you with today?

And that jerk had the nerve to get upset. Some people, I tell ya.

If you want to be a good player, solve your own damned problems. We like vigilantes. And then we ban them.

Firm, but fair.

Ok that was plain stupid, sometimes you can fall can now be able to move(unless you have a warp). You can pretty funny but other then that your a moron.

well, either get a warp... but as it seems, the poor guy is going to be stuck where he left himself 'glitching'.

Maybe GM don't earn money, so they don't do they're job, if so why don't you do your job sometimes ?

At 11:32 AM, Blogger keiluo said... you get paid for this?! If us players didn't pay for this service then u wouldnt have this job! Do your job or get another somewhere else please

This is dissapointing..the others morons at least had a reason to get punished..

That was a really jerky thing to do.

I've gotten stuck places before in various games. It's only a glitch. And generally you can't magically POOF yourself out.

You jerkwad D:

Die in a fire.
