  1. Another banger of an update brought to you by our good lads @Xenith, @Iso , and the generous people within the community who help QC these updates. We've added a few new creatures to the game (and a pet!!), reworked and reconfigured enchanting & crafting bolts, javelins, the Dragon crossbow, and a ton more changes and additions. We're just scratching the surface of this massive update, check out what else we've got going on in this one! Hydrophix Dragons We'd like for you to meet our new Slayer monster, the Hydrophix Dragon. You're able to kill these off or on (Elite) task, requiring a Slayer level of 90, you can find these strange draconical creatures within the Karamja Volcano Resource Dungeon. These mystical dragons will have the opportunity of dropping Dragon limbs and an all new Magic offhand item. The Book of the Dead - A high tier magic book slightly below the General Grisis' Tome. We have plans for imbuing it in the future, but we want to tie it into future content Rune Dragons Another additional Slayer monster that requires 81 Slayer to defeat, these can also be killed off or on (Hard) task. You'll be able to find these metal dragons within the Brimhaven Resource Dungeon. These have the chance of dropping Dragon Limbs as well as Dragon platebody pieces. Fletching & Ranged Updates ‣ Added Dragon bolt crafting and ALL Dragon bolt tip crafting with appropriate EXP and Level requirements. ‣ Added Dragon tipped bolt Enchanting by using the Enchant Crossbow Bolt spell via Onyx bolt enchant. It will prioritize normal bolts (if in your inventory) but will also handle Dragon bolt type variants. ‣ Added and fixed Enchanted Dragon bolt specials/passives (Opal through Dragon). ‣ All Dragon bolts are excluded from the Unlimited Ammo Perk. ‣ Added Javelin shaft crafting to all logs, similar to arrow shaft crafting. ‣ Added Javelin crafting from Bronze to Dragon with appropriate EXP and Level requirements. https://imgur.com/p94gfQo Crossbow & Bolt Special Changes ‣ Updated how bolt specs function, decreasing the base chance from 1/19 > 1/13. Due to the fact that Crossbows in general are feeling somewhat lackluster in comparison to our other Ranged options. ‣ Chaotic Crossbow spec chance has been increased due to these changes, 1/8 > 1/9 ‣ Armadyl Crossbow has received a unique mechanical buff, much like the swift fury of an Armadyl Godsword, the ACB now attacks 1 tick faster and has a 50% chance on hit to increase the bolt spec chance from 1/13 > 1/6. Other Changes/Fixes & Additions ‣ Added passive venom application to TSOTD & filterable chat message. ‣ Added Durability to TSOTD, 11k charges maximum like other Zulrah items. ‣ Updated the Tanner NPC so it will tan all unnoted hides instead of just a few at a time. ‣ Updated Void bone blessing, you can now bless up to 28 without having to click them individually, also added an animation. ‣ Cleaned up some item announcements, added Staff of the dead. ‣ Fixed Zulrah taking damage on Green phase from Ranged attacks and Blue phase from Magic attacks. ‣ Removed debug messages from Lizardman Shaman combat. ‣ Fixed T2 Elysian Spirit shield passive. ‣ Fixed Fiery Divine Spirit shield passive. ‣ Fixed Twisted Ornament kits to work with Ancestral robes. ‣ Fixed brawler's aura to be in line with Sharpshooter/Runic Accuracy. ♡ Final Words ♡ Thank you all for reading, we're getting better and more consistent with these updates, I hope you all can enjoy them as much as we do making them come to fruition. Have an awesome week and get on those DRAGONS!!!

Beware; Item Changes & Misc. Fixes ‣ Female characters & item models fixed for HUNDREDS of items, please be sure to tell how much you love @Isoevery time you see him. ‣ Item Examine value adjustments (high level seeds, onyx's, basilisk jaw, etc). ‣ Cleaned up some chat filtering when toggled to filtered while doing certain activities throughout the game (successful cooks, extra shots, etc). ♡ Final Words ♡ Thank you all for reading & a huge thank you to ISO ONCE AGAIN, for doing god's work with all those item model fixes.

  3. BIG OL UPDATE SHEEEEEEEEEESH: Started off this adventure going for kril completion log. Got the kills pretty quick with my fancy new divine in hand, and was able to complete. I then went and threw some darts at nex and got insanely spooned and got a torva platebody. Thank god I did kril so I could use that as my saved because I PROMPTLY lost the fp to Iso. I then went and just grinded out some clues because no one was around to fp for 100k. So I just dropped after every loot. I don't want to do that, but when no one is there to fp- I figured it is the best option. After that, I decided to go to bandos. Mainly to get tassets so I can start to form a good melee kit. Ended up getting them at 145 kc, a lot higher than I was expecting- but that is okay. I have been pretty spooned so far. Made those lucky so I can save as an untradable. I spent the rest of this adventure trying to get full barrows log. Thanks to the table change, I was doing every hard clue I got along the way. After doing every chest while on 2x minigame rewards, I am 1 item away from completing this log After 2x minigame was over, I decided to do some AFK KBD- but I accidentally got a dragon pickaxe and lost the fp. But that sums it up. A lot of progress. My account is feeling kind of pog now. LOOTS AND FP's WOWOWOW Thanks for reading. This account continues to be extremely fun so I will definitely be continuing it.

  4. Yeah I agree with all of this, and imo comp t should be "too difficult" for a lot of players, it's always been a stretch goal for those players who did most of the content and were looking for something really challenging. Now challenging should be fun and enjoyable as much as we can make it but at the end of the day we are still on runescape and a lot of things are repetitive. I think a good approach here will be to clean up and balance our existing skilling challenges, add more pvm challenges around new content, we have raids and quite a few new slayer monsters around. Minigames are something I've been working with the other staff on, Zombie Waves has been my first target where we have a mix of a pretty lackluster minigame ontop of some absolutely ridiculous achievements (Reach wave 250??? Took me like 3 hours to get over 50) so I want to actually re balance how these minigames work a bit and then see about toning down/updating their related achievements after. Like Zombie Waves could be balanced out to have around 100 wave runs and scale the difficulty a lot quicker. Castle wars could have shorter games and more tickets per game. Unrelated to this thread slightly but I have been tinkering with a global minigame currency/shop see Thaler on rs3 that could fill in some gaps. Also with all the comp talk, we need to rebalance regular comp requirements and take peoples capes away if they don't meet new requirements. Should certainly fold in a certain achievement completion % for comp, even something like 40% for comp and 100% for comp t. Im planning to bump or start a new comp t thread when the time is right though, I know there is a lot of balancing and reworks to be done to existing content before we could feasibly ask anyone to complete everything to get it.

  5. UPDATE TIME ONCE AGAIN: It has been a while. I got quite a bit done. After the last episode, I went back to barrows to try and get the fucking Guthans warspear... My last item needed. I realized the clues from barrows were a great way to knock out some hard clue cl items, so I did those every time I got them. The log is just stupid After the weekend was over and I didn't get the drop (despite trying really hard), I figured I would go for my next untradable- the slayer helm. Since I got the black mask a while ago, I wanted to get the things to make the full helm before going for another mask. I got extremely lucky on hexcrest and focus sight. Like stupid dumb lucky. I am sure that won't come back to hurt me later. And with that, I made my 8th untradable item. After that I went to do slayer tasks with my fancy new helm. Got the new dragons, and got the dchain and dboots cl unexpectedly. So those were dumb fp's. After that, got blink as a task (Fuck you Kyle) and got battlemage rob bottoms at a low kc. Then did Kree and unlocked all the items BUT the arma hilt. So I will be going back there soon. After doing blink, I realized I wanted to have some better range gear so that I can use the helm when ranging. So I used lucky shards on arma top and bottom and those are untradable 9 and 10. I then decided I wanted to complete a log. So I thought KBD would be an easy one. After getting the Mage visage and the heads, I thought I was in the clear. It ended up taking over 600 kills to get the regular visage. But eventually I got it and thus completed another log. I also added the KBD heads to the slayer helm to make the cool one. With that done, I went to Nex and got a Torva helm. I struggled for a while on if I wanted to keep that item, and ultimately decided that with the slayer helm and serp helm- I probably didn't need it. So I fp'ed it and lost ofc. Continuing with slayer at Zilyana, got a couple drops. Went and grinded some clues. I don't like doing it, but when no one is around I do end up just dropping all the clue items. And ultimately, I want to get the gloves sorted so I needed to fill a good amount of logs quickly. And then finally, I went back to zammy because the staff of the dead got added so that log was no longer filled. Ended up getting pretty lucky, and got it relatively quickly. Some other cool things I did. Thank you again for reading. Probably the most content in one of the updates yet. Kisses Collection Log Items Locked Untradables Locked Tradables Full Logs

  6. The time has come.. After months of tweaking & balancing CoX and making it fit Ely, we've allowed the use of 'Alternative Accounts' while raiding and we now think it's a good time to put it to a halt. We think it's too overpowered for one player to bring in two alt accounts with them to have 3 chances at a roll for a unique. From now on, there will be a zero tolerance rule for raiding with yourself & alt accounts. Those caught will be hit with a one and final warning, and repeated offenses will lead to permanent IP bans.

  13. 1) You were misinformed, misguided and trying to say something is correct when it was clearly not, even after you told me to "Look it up". I showed & read you the wiki regarding the spell, and yet you continued to run your mouth, even in my Discord DM's. 2) I SHOULD of given you a warning but, in the heat of the moment - I impulsively muted you out of resentment by your tone, attitude, and your ego. Never once have I gotten as heated as I did today towards another player, ever. And I'd like to apologize to you for that and own up to the mistake I made today. It was a senseless argument and nothing of importance was gained from it. Aside from Glacors dumb & need a rework of sorts, or a more efficient method for them. 3) I suggest you manage your ego a little better and not assume things are correct when they truly aren't. Even if they happen to be correct at the time when you were actively playing. Do your research before you start spewing nonsense. I've put in a ton of effort over the past few months as Admin - even as Event Manager to help make this server the best it can be, and I think I'm doing a good job at succeeding in that regard, thanks. Mute lifted.

  16. Ok yeah, I will admit I may have overlooked that side of the argument. Thinking more along the lines of I really don't want to have to do achievements that I would have unlocked on my way to 5b but I do to do it again. I remember trying to work out how Comp T req should have been and having plenty of arguments with people because what I asked for was "Too difficult" but saying it's meant to be a grind and only the most elite should have the right to earn it. With this being said maybe making some of the achievements harder would actually be the right way to look at it. For example moving the 99 Requirements to Medium tasks, 25mil to Hard, and 200m being new to elite. Adding CoX Kills to Monster I being 1,25,50,100 and drops to Monster II. With the equipable drops being added to Elite Tasks of Combat I/IV respectfully. Clues also seem easy and are really easy to do with just stacking them up so maybe adding a higher clue count making Med 100, Hard 500, and elite either 750 or 1k I do feel like some of the minigames should be reduced like castle wars but I feel like that's might not be an issue depending on how many people are really going for all achievements as the majority of the player base would rather do something else than waste their time at CWars making is impossible to get enough players. This could be solved if people who are wanting to do 300 Wins at CWars can bring alts and have them on the other team but that would get rid of any fun the minigame is meant to bring.

  17. In essence I agree with what you're saying. However there's one thing that we all seem to be missing. Completionist cape T isn't supposed to be an easy feat if it was everyone would have it... That being said I really believe that to distinguish the hardcore players we should just leave current achievements be. If im almost done them then anyone can! I work 50+ hours a week and only really get to play weekends if that. So there really shouldn't be any excuse

  18. Looking through the Achievements since I've come back I would say some of the achievements do need changing. I would say some of them which have not been brought up are fine as they are good training methods for anyone going for 200m and will end up getting them anyways. The ones listed here to change I agree with. Like stealing from 10k stalls I can't see anyone doing as thieving at trader is just far superior. For example, look at Kari's thieving guide a regular account needs 7188 (6202 with Ibis) at Trader for 200m XP while at Gem Stall it's 25000 (22650 with Ibis) and sure its meant to be the most profitable but only giving 1.4B it's not an incentive and is more of a pointless grind getting 10k. Fishing 5k Sharks down to 3k sharks sounds like a good option too. Look at slays guide to go from 76-99 it takes around 2127 to reach 99 but I would up rocktails to maybe 5k as this is something people will achieve along the way to 200m fishing.

  19. Skotizo Guide About the boss ; Skotizo is located is a level 321 NPC that uses Magic and Melee. Since we will be using Ranged to defeat him, the only concern here will be Magic. Known to be camped because he drops Hard clue scroll on every kill & can also drop Elites. Fun fact : the Dark claw can be alched for 6m OR be used on a slayer helmet to recolor it. No slayer level is required. Can bring a follower in. No stuff are lost if you die, you will have your tomb outside as you revive there Some items can be in Diango. : **One important thing to remember is this** : Once the damage is down to 45%, he will be too tanky (still able to defeat him but it will take you too much time) Just teleport outside and re enter via the Altar How to get there There's 2 ways to teleport to Skotizo (Catacombs) Easiest : ;;tele cata (catacombs) World Map - Slayer - Catacombs Once you have arrived, make sure you have your Dark totem (you can receive them from PvM boxes, dropped by NPC in the catacombs or from Players) **NOTE** You will need the 3 pieces to make the Totem which are ; Base, Top and the Middle Gear I would recommend to be atleast 70+ ranged so you would hit pretty much everytime and also having a level of 37 in prayer (Anti-mage) Defence and other melee stats doesn't matter in this guide because we're mainly using Ranged. Low-Level Mid-Tier High-Tier (Could use a blowpipe if you have one) If you're wondering which aura it is ; Supreme Sharpshooter AURA GUIDE If you don't have Overload or Renewals it's all good, just makes the fight easier. Same goes with Steel Titan. Where to stand to "safespot" Skotizo Just stand at this spot near the Black Stone(if you click on it when Skotizo is dead, it will spawn another one but it consums one totem everytime) **BE CAREUFL IF YOU'RE NOT AT THIS SPOT YOU WILL TAKE MELEE DAMAGE** VIDEO OF THE FIGHT LOOT

  29. Just dove back into this topic to see if there was any new input & happy with what I saw. Some really nontraditional ideas and thats exactly what I was looking for. @Rev3Rse - thank you for such a thorough input from a relatively new player, I appreciate the time you spent to write that up, and thanks for your support. @Jake threw a curve ball out there regarding social media, even mentioning TikTok, and as I read that I LOL'd but @Rev3Rse also mentioned it too - and buffing up a social media presence is certainly not a bad idea. It can't harm anything - so I'll try to actually think of how to implement this. More Youtube, I never even downloaded TikTok but @Boats is right, the dumbest things get views there and could potentially benefit. Would be a very low conversion rate though since TikTok is like 100% mobile-focused so it's likely about like 80%+ of people that would see our clips on TikTok don't even have a PC they could hop on to download the game. We are working on a mobile client that even works on iOS, so maybe we should continue spearheading that project first, then work on TikTok that way a player see's it, could hit the link at the bottom, and literally play right then and there on their phone. But yeah, again, appreciate all the input, good thoughts here.

  36. Hi all, since I recently joined, I thought it would be helpful to describe my experience so far and see if we can extrapolate from it. I played 07 scape just until after eoc and have been hopping around on-off rsps since then. edit: The post ended up being a lot longer than I anticipated....sorry! My backstory: tldr; impatient newbie, that enjoyed the quick satisfaction of an ez mode account. But is now hooked to play Legend to unlock the remaining content of the server. I started off 10ish days ago on the server with an easy account and maxed it over the weekend (3 days total). This was great to keep me engaged as I saw the fruits of my success very fast. I was never big on pvm and would like to get into it. Playing on ez mode hasnt unlocked as much as I thought it would (rune pouch, void gear etc. just to name the basic ones) which meant there was still somewhat of a barrier (I then did p2w and bought nex gear). So now I have a legend account which I enjoy grinding on especially now that I know how most things work around the server (Id say at most 50%, but very thankful for the supportive community). Since I'm new to pvm I want to try to get all the advantage that I can. Considering the time it hast taken me to max on the ez account, it sohuld take me 50x longer to max the legend, so if I really do pull through I will be around at least another year (cant play all day everyday :P). Here are some Ideas (and some further explanation): Some are better than others, but they may inspire you so I worte them down anyway. Create an afk activity - tizenx used to have damage dummy/penguin, where you earned tokens for afk hitting it. Other servers had an afk area where you literally just leave your account and earned points, not a fan of that one (This can artifically increase the online player count, good for marketing on the rsps websites) Offer non-tradeable & degredable starter packages on account creation - This makes the barrier to entry very low (most rsps players are just impatient af) and will incentivise new players to stick around a little longer to explore more of the server and hopefully find something they will enjoy doing - clue hunting - pvming - pking - skilling - gambeling (not sure how you would do that, I leave the balancing up to you) baisically disect why people join a rsps in the first place and create a custom package that will meet exactely that. Forum input to this would be extremly appreciated! Group oriented activities - the perk of playing on a rsps is that it tends to create closer social bonds imo, as there are only that many people you can interact with anyway. Great example for this is Dung. 3 people is amazing with the current player count. You can almost always find a group on fridays. I imagine its harder to find enough people for Pest control for example. So managing the size of the activity will be the important aspect. Original Content - I recently watched a video on Sir puggers channel called "I added horses to Runescape, and it was weird" which has some pretty cool ideas for original content. I know that these concepts are extremly hard to actually convert and implement into the Game... Game concepts of other games or popculture references (jumping onto the hype train & in combination with social media exposure let the algorithim do its work). Eg. Hunger games/battle royale is like our LMS, so we can look at other things such as; fall guys as an agility minigame (would for sure make the skill more enjoyable), Custom houses for construction like in Sims, cookie clicker/idle game- any gathering skill (might be too op), Squid games, pico park, Creating a USP for the server could be worth it, but requires a huge amount of input with no real way to predict the results, but if youre looking for a hail marry, I think this is the shape that I would look for in it. Edit: This last part (Original Content) is probably more in the direction of answers youre looking for, so its a mix of popculture and social media (mainly youtube) and letting the algorithm take over, or baisically reverse engineer it. only saw this now in one of your replies "where do we find players? How do we attract them? If typical advertising on toplists don't produce results, what will? Where are they? What methods should we be trying to reach them? Etc etc." What I understand from this is, how do we find/attract new players and retain them. Market of players that could be interested: people playing other rsps people that used to play 07 scpae and have since "grown out" of it due to lack of time or other irl commitments (and I know this one sounds horrible) botters - the lazy ones, not the money hungry ones. There is probably a few more small categories but imo these are the main ones, and only 1 of them is realistic to reach (worth it in terms of effort/result). Going to other servers to advertise ours is not gonna do it, probably makes it worse. We have to make them believe they find us, so #1 easiest thing to do is update the server descriptions on the rsps list pages (look into boolean search (LinkedIn explains the concept pretty well with candidate search) = using the right keywords). Topg - already looks fantastic but there is always something that can be adjusted....didnt check the others #2 As many people here mentioned it and I have hinted, a social media pressence is almost critical. And then again understand the algorithm and become part of it

  37. I do like this idea, it's proven to be somewhat successful in the past. Most notably, @Kaotic - he used to constantly do livestreams, youtube videos, etc. Daily we'd have new players login and say they found Ely by his videos. So maybe some sort of incentive can be enacted to encourage this. But it would have to be entertaining, fun and generally good production. Not the typical youtuber video of "OMG LOOK WHAT I GOT IN ALL THESE BOXES" yakno? Good idea though. I'm gonna think more on this.

  38. i support this and its purpose to be able to upgrade most of your pvm "geart" to better your pvm experience, but i also believed that some items we have here at ely are already too strong for ely's available bosses atm, having too powerful equipment and weapon can take away the fun and challenges, making the game balanced is what keeps me playing, making it too easy gets boring "its only my opinon", overall i like where the upgrade chest is heading and with cox coming to ely soon, we wont be needing t2 to fight ncp and great olm, i know they will do great with coding cox 1:1 with osrs, if so,, just regular basic max equipment will be fine. +support

  39. Hello All, Is there any chance we can add red chinchompa's to the range store and also make it so red chins do what they are supposed to which is go boom in an AoE, because you can mass train mage with ancients and barrage and red chins are the way to do it for range but 1. you have to hunt them which takes forever as there is only 5 in feldip and 2. they do not go boom like they are supposed too. Please support this idea and maybe get it added!

  40. Here we are again, Kyle & for anyone that doesn't want to read all the words I'm about to type the result of this appeal is denied - so there you go. Now to the beloved player; Kyle. Where do I begin? Shall we take a step back in time and begin at the very beginning of your time on Ely? Na, let's start with the inconsistencies in your appeal which played a factor in the reason your appeal is denied - and I'll explain that more in depth shortly. You insinuate after you asked "are we ever gonna get a non-donator update" that you were instantly flamed, kicked from the server & muted in-game immediately; at least that's how it reads. Let's go back here and state FACTS, something of which you claim to be stating but are yet again, shocking: lying. So after your cute statement in the Discord you failed to mention the part where I directly replied to you - and very in-depth indeed. I even provided you with a screenshot of our past SIX (6), that is greater than 5 but less than 7, of our last updates to the game. Not one of those examples listed, which went back nearly two+ months were "donator exclusive" updates; nor can I even find such an update in the list & I only provided you with the last 6. After a little more conversation ensued between us you went on to gripe that the only updates the game gets are a "new box every week" - which I then clearly pointed out to you is in fact only one mystery box we been selling for about 9 months or so now. Which I'll gladly explain again to you here: what our Exclusive Mystery boxes are is one single box, that gets re-made and refreshed every single month to provide new and refreshing items to the game, with a much better chance at rare items than our regular Mystery box selections. These are not new boxes week to week or month to month. They are simply the same box, with new items. Here's why you got a notification every week about what you thought was "a new box every week" - these boxes are in limited supply. Which means we only release an X amount of boxes to sell per month; which is 600. Instead of making all these available at the start of the month we break it down into 4 "drops" per month - once at the start of every week in a quantity of 150. So as it would go - I would post in the "#announcements" channel (which is strictly for.. you guessed it - announcements!) every week a few hours prior to these box "drops." After this conversation you backtracked in Discord and said you only said when are we ever going to get an update. I then at this point was fed up with you and your lying / backtracking of your statements. At the time of that writing - when you asked that question, the last update was only two weeks prior. So what were you complaining about? Only God knows, Kyle.. none of us ever understand what your going on about. After the backtracking and nonsensical chit chat going on in the Discord general chat - I then kicked you from the Discord; keep in mind a "kick" is not a "ban" - two different things. Now let's move on to the next part, shall we? You mentioned in your appeal "I was then flamed, kicked from the Discord server, and muted in-game. Keep in mind that I broke no rules, said nothing related to this in game..." Here we are back at square one in which you are blatantly lying. You explicitly logged in-game after that and began ranting about the same exact issue in the public chat ingame now and then proceeded to flame me for kicking you from the Discord. Here we basically repeated ourselves again in nearly the same manner of our conversation on Discord - after just getting sick of your nonsense - I muted you. A fail-safe. You can continue to play the game you some days claim you love, and others claim is completely shit and not going anywhere - minus the nonsense that comes from your keyboard on a daily basis. Something I viewed as a win-win. So let's move to the next part of your appeal.. You state: "After reading through the rules I can confidently say that this punishment was unjust, the situation was undeserving of a mute, and for once in my life, I literally did nothing wrong, unless you count voicing a concern I have by asking a question." Let's clear something up here.. you claim you read through the rules. If you actually read the thread in its entirety than I'd assume you would have saw the part at the very top that explicitly states the following: "Staff members reserve the right to punish players for rule breaking as they see fit." Let's dig into this further. Am I a Staff member? Hell - I'm an Owner; I believe that counts as Staff. Therefore means I reserve the right to punish players for rule breaking as I see fit. So, I saw it fit that you deserved a mute. You therefore have the right to appeal that; which I have simply denied. Just because the rules don't state a mighty specific "If a player is using general chats to spread falsehoods & lies about the server & it's owner, they can be muted or banned" doesn't mean I can't do that. Let's also keep in mind this is a private server owned, run & managed by just a few individuals. We are not owned by a third-party corporation, a company, or separate entity in which we answer too. I just like to keep the peace, and when your not speaking - the server seems to be at peace. Interesting. Let's move on. Your very first reason for saying you should be un-muted is: "This kind of treatment to the playerbase is unprofessional, and not something I would expect from the staff, especially from the owner." Might I refer to the statement right above this one in which we are not owned or managed by a third party corporation, company or separate entity. Therefore our "professionalism" is entirely up to us, myself, or other owners. I would also like to refer back to the part in which I mentioned "this is a private server owned, run & managed by just a few individuals." That should answer that part.. The most hilarious part yet? Let's have us a look.. Remember some way back in this story I mentioned the part about you being a liar? We are gonna revisit that here. Your very next statement is as follows: "I'm posting this here because I shouldn't have to ask to be unmuted for doing nothing wrong, and I shouldn't have to beg the staff member who issued it to reinstate my communication rights." Let's focus on the part I took the time to enlarge & embolden. I'd like to mentioned.. when.. where.. how.. did you ever even attempt to contact me once since this mute? Let me state for the record - never. The very last time you contacted me on any platform whatsoever was on Discord on October 24th & it was about a Runecrafting Pet; Abby. I did not receive any communication from you since then until today when you sent me the link to this very appeal. So again I ask, when did you beg to have your communication reinstated? To who? Where? You know where to contact me when you need too. My Discord private messages are not restricted to server's I share with people, they are open and have been since I joined Discord in 2017. Can we quit the lying? Last but not least.. A meme: "I don't want an apology, and I don't mind staying muted, but I wanted to post this because I feel that I've been treated extremely unfairly due to an outburst of anger from a staff member. I have attempted to make this post as unbiased as possible, and to just present the facts. I know this will be taken down eventually, but I'm putting it here in the hopes that it can serve as an example of how players should NOT be treated. Thanks for reading." I will not spend time on each part of this I will just say - I'm glad you don't expect an apology because you will not find one. Also glad to hear you don't mind staying muted because you will be (until possibly one day out of the kindness of my heart I decide to lift). Also you made this post just to present the facts? Do you know fact usually mean they are not lies? Also - none of our appeals are taken down; just moved to their respective sections. Have a good day, Kyle.. until we meet again.
