i want to make a new one cause this one is mess up i cant make a minion i cant retire my minion i cant even inspect the char. casue it says error and the train page says No unretired Characters. but ineed my email adress so please admin delete this account

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] July 28 2008 1:38 PM EDT

As part of the rules, you cannot make another account.

If you do, the admins will just delete the new on and reset your old one.

But it sounds like you are having difficulties with your character, so the best thing to do is just sit tight and wait for an admin to come and try to help you figure it out.

AdminShade July 28 2008 1:45 PM EDT

I have enlisted 1 minion on one of your characters. I think your problem is solved.

And what Hakai said is true, you can't have this one deleted to make another one.

dragonskin July 28 2008 1:48 PM EDT

nothing happen i still have a blank on the top leftand cant hit train or equip

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] July 28 2008 1:49 PM EDT

Do you know how to take and post a screenshot?

If not, I can walk you through it in chat. Or can you not access chat either?

Can you make a screenshot? It might make it easier to see what might be wrong?

AdminShade July 28 2008 1:56 PM EDT

Perhaps also try to log out and log back in?
Clear cache of old cookies? (stale cookies are baaad)
Refresh using F5?

dragonskin July 28 2008 2:09 PM EDT

i did logging in and out refreshing makes it look the same

Didn't this happen before when somebody didn't finish the tutorial?

Br3ed July 28 2008 2:17 PM EDT

i havent finished the tutorial (i had a ranged character for a while and it still wouldnt say i used ranged in combat) so my tutorial is messed up but i can still play

INDColtsFan18 July 28 2008 2:37 PM EDT

I had a tutorial problem when i first joined:


A screenshot would help a ton here, as it is quite hard to understand what he is saying.

Also, why not just reset his account anyways? It might help.

AdminShade July 28 2008 2:49 PM EDT

If you have problems with the tutorial then either specify which problems or follow what the tutorial tells you... :)

same its stuffed up major im 400k mrp and over 1m score yet im still on tutorial because i wont hire another minion

blackshadowshade July 29 2008 7:08 AM EDT

Sounds like we need a button to skip a step in the tutorial.

"same its stuffed up major im 400k mrp and over 1m score yet im still on tutorial because i wont hire another minion"

Just make a new character named 'tempchar' and finish the tutorial by hiring a new minion on that. It'll cost you... what, $100?

AdminShade July 29 2008 7:25 AM EDT

It won't even cost that because you get a tiny bit of money with the new character.

8DEOTWP July 29 2008 7:26 AM EDT

100$ is nothing.. but the fact that the tutorial is messing with newbies sucks!

AdminShade July 29 2008 7:31 AM EDT

Honestly the tutorial isn't messing with the new players, the new players are messing with the totorial.

If the tutorial tells you to enlist a new minion, just follow it and get rid of it again if you want...

superior me July 29 2008 7:48 AM EDT

lol im messing with tutorial because i want to have a 1 minion team.... hmmm makes sense? lol

i made another char and trained another minion but its still not working :( can an admin plz help, no rush but would be nice to finish tutorial before i finish my NUB thanks

maybe the adding minion part of tutorial should be axed?

INDColtsFan18 July 29 2008 12:52 PM EDT

I tried everything as well. Jon had to fix mine, there was no way around it.

I think the tutorial needs an overhaul and it should set newbies up with a single minion mage and ask them what DD they want.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 29 2008 6:04 PM EDT

As long as they want SG. ;)

AdminG Beee July 29 2008 6:27 PM EDT

There's definite problems with this account.

I was able to retire a character and then hire a new one however it's bugged and unable to fight.

Needs one of the progs to look into the detail and sort it out for you.

Changed thread title to attract their attention and posted on the admin board with a link here too.

AdminShade July 29 2008 6:28 PM EDT

superior me:

I think I have a way it can work but it won't be a rush indeed...

What you can try is retire your main character and remove all minions from your other 'new' tutorial character.
Your account will see no active characters and trigger the tutorial again, if you then train your minion and get a second minion it might (should) pop it further.

If you then let me know to unretire your good character then I'll help you as soon as I can (I should be awake early enough tomorrow).

i dont mind waiting until its fixed theres no rush its not really affecting my game or anything it just has that stupid hire a minion msg at the stop of my screen, im just confused why the tutorial would make you hire a minion

Jon must hate single minion characters :)

QBOddBird July 29 2008 7:33 PM EDT

Actually, you are correct, he does. Poor us, neh?
