"Hall of Fame" realm and changes to retired chars (in General)

Sickone July 30 2008 9:13 AM EDT

I propose to add a "Hall of Fame" realm (which would be identical to what "Gondor" is now), while removing ALL retired characters from any of the other realms.

Thoughts ?

Oh, and also add a "Shocking Grasp" category to the realm stats, if possible.
Or, if it's already there somewhere, can somebody please point it to me on a picture or something ?

It's there. It's where protection was.

Phrede July 30 2008 9:30 AM EDT

I like it :)

"It's there. It's where protection was. "

That's... weird. I get "Protection" listed (third row, first column), but the list is totally empty in all possible realms. I see no "Shocking Grasp" heading at all. If I click on the "Protection" heading, I get a (mostly) blank page (only the title "Protection" and nothing else on it).

I'm a non-supporter, could it probably be a bug limited to non-supporters ?

I mean sixth row, first column, sorry.

Sorry, I was joking. Won't do it again. Promise. ;)

Ladies and Gentlemen, Johnnywas, master strategist of BS

I thought alcohol was the master strategist of BS, it takes over the occupant in order to parade its glory.

"I thought alcohol was the master strategist of BS,"


I like the Hall of Fame idea.

What would the criteria be?

Sickone July 30 2008 3:56 PM EDT

"What would the criteria be?"

It would be the current "Gondor" realm list.
"Gondor" and the other realms would be changed to "active chars only".

Well, while I would love to be inducted to a "hall of fame" of any sort, I wouldn't say that I necessarily deserve the title.

I mean, I hardly understand the strategy here. Most newbies figure out the strategies faster than I ever will, lol.
I am still here because I love the community. ^_^

Besides, we already have a "Hall of Fame"

It's a good idea, I just think maybe it could use some work. ^_^

Sickone July 30 2008 4:06 PM EDT

Well, the NAME was not relevant.

It's not so much a "Hall of Fame" as it is "The Compendium of all Characters that Ever Lived", but that's too much of a mouthfull ;)
The basic idea was to REMOVE retired characters from the regular realms.

Heck, for all I care you could do it in the reverse direction... create a "Active Duty Roster" realm (called anything you like) which would be Gondor without the retired chars.
Works just fine either way for me.
Basically, I want to be able to see ONLY stats from people I could actually fight (even if I would "die horribly" trying to do it) in at least ONE realm.

Undying Lands should be a realm as soon as possible...
(this has 0 to do with the fact the #1 spot is held by a retired char)

Sickone July 31 2008 1:53 PM EDT

Hmm, "Elysium" might be a good name instead :)

Goodfish July 31 2008 2:36 PM EDT

Or Valhalla, but that's not Tolkien-related, so it's out. :(

AdminShade July 31 2008 2:38 PM EDT

Just use Valinor then.
