As far as the Gs's go, I speak of GS Venom and GS Pakiman, two of the finest people I know, as well as Terabyte, though not so well.
PM Memphis unfortunately has departed from Wolfteam and I have yet to truly speak with JediMike.
HigherCalibre and I have spoken a few times, though not enough for me to call an acquaintance.
All of the staff I have spoken with and played with are decent and honest
The Way of the wolf, just to clarify what I meant, is a creation of mine, as well as old friends of mine, GrizzledWolf, PureWolf and SpiritWolf. We made it so when we Clan Warred we could work in tandem and function as a team with minimal communication.
Wane was put there instead of wither to give the imagery of a Moon Waning, also backed up by the image of a flower blooming though perhaps the two together did not function as I desired.
And as far as skills go, people with non-ap now tend to work as a tight knit team. Watching each other's backs and keeping them safe. Also the ability to listen more to advice and orders rather than clear off and do their own thing jeopardizing the rest of the team.
There is more but I tend to make my posts exceptionally long so I will just stick with these as they have the most significance.
Neither of these GS would agree with what you say. Do they support this game, yes. Do they think the current state is fair or balanced, no.
You will never "truly" speak with a GM or PM.
They do the best they can, but this game, from Aeria's perspective is about money. Even if they wanted to change things, they would not if it continues as a profit stream. Once it is no longer viable, they'll dump it. Until then, they will milk it for every nickel they can.
The staff are nice and they can be cool to play with.
It's not the Way, it's a way and it sounds really cool. I'm glad you and your friends have fun together and it has helped you with clan wars.
I used wither because it connotes something dying or fading. To Wane suggests that at some point it may begin to Wax. This won't happen, unless something radical occurs in the mindset of not only Aeria, but softnyx. Nothing in their current or past behavior suggests some magical new rebirth. If this were to occur, happy days.
Skills versus AP, is just a wonderful idea and complete crap. You're suggesting that in a normal match, a team of non-ap players could stand effectively against another team full-up. This is not reasonable. I'm more inclined to think you mean they would hang-on, and not lose badly. A well coordinated team of players(more likely a clan who've trained together), withstanding an assault from another team of full ap, would still be decimated. It's like comparing a normal team to another team with opk or god hacks.
Stick with encouraging new players to play in your events. Along with encouraging nice, polite, happy play.
But please, don't act like there are no significant problems in the current version of wolf team. Better that all the flaws are displayed and talked about. Picked at like a raw wound, so that everyone sees it and is aware of what's going on. These aren't negative views, they are open, aware discussions of what are severe problems with the game. The simple fact that you feel the need to create safe environments for newbs is testament to that.
