Shortly after the launch of MTG:LS, the admin team made a deliberate decision to be more lenient with gunfights because they're interesting and exciting. This has had its ups and downs but overall it's a decision we feel good about.
Having said that, it has become overwhelmingly obvious to the admin team that there are a few players who have decided to become knowledgeable about GTA hitboxes/geometry and to use that to their unfair advantage. Gunfights are only fun if there's a fair chance...
Good afternoon everybody! Just a quick announcement here regarding spaces/areas where players will be considered protected from robbery.
Previously our rule of thumb was that robbing players in public places was ICly a dumb thing to do, because in real life nobody in their right mind would rob another person in front of a police station, but it was allowed. After listening to player feedback and some discussion amongst the admin team, we're going to modify/expand upon that rule.
I'm going to be making a number of enhancements on the forums and I figured a post would be easier to track than statuses all over the place. Some will be completely behind-the-scenes, some will be for staff only, and some will be for everybody. I'll list all the changes that apply to everybody here and I look forward to your feedback.
Just over a week ago, some former MTG players decided that somebody in our community was no longer allowed the right to privacy. They dug up the legal name, birth name, address, phone number and email address of this community member as well as pictures of their home and details about past relationships; this information was posted to various parts of the internet like YouTube and 4chan and was also used to mock and impersonate the person on social media.
I hope everybody had a wonderful holiday! I only got coal for Christmas, no clue what that's all about.
Insurgency fever hit MTG hard and pulled a lot of people into it. Unfortunately it seems to have been a short-lived fascination and so with much sadness I must announce that the regular server and the co-op server have been closed. They may return in the future for special one-off events.
I would like to thank Conor for stepping up and being a wonderful administrator,...
