    Kootenay - This is not true. And first off you should never trust the MMORPG.com forums, since we all know they are trolls



     

     Wow!!!

    Kootenay went from a "nobody" volunteer mod,  to the "voice" of  Starvault in minutes. What would you expect SV to do with a "leak" if it were true?

    MO is not shutting down, so that rumor has been cleared up. Haters need new ammunition now to put MO down.

    Who could have thought that WOW could bring super power like USA to its knees?

    You have to be joking. image   Perhaps I'm just a fan of  PVP centric MMOs who is tired of that niche getting further defamed by inept and unscrupulous developers.  I dont make this stuff up, Mortal Online is what it is.  Would you rather MMORPG.com be a haven for Fanbots to "sell their wares" unopposed?  I provide factual and at times opinionated information so others can make informed purchases.  I was once a fan of MO...

    Perhaps you are a fan, no matter how twisted it may seem. And of course I was joking. But clearly what you've managed to accomplish is reinforce a negative opinion about the type of people that post on the forums here at mmorpg.com. A opinion that I've tried to shake off as superficial at best and far better if you dig a little deeper.

    But nevertheless, your type of misguided self righteous justice in the form of loosely linked hearsay does no one here any real good. On the contrary, it does seem to support the beliefs that sandbox gamers are their worst enemy.

    It is...it really is.  If it was, and I dont care and dont know, but the reality of the matter is, if the lead moderator was a trusted and appreciated comminity moderator of a mmorpg game, a community liason and manager, then his/her departure from said relatively new mmorpg game should raise an eyebrow.

    I dont know, so it's a coin-toss. It could be that he's a tool or the management are tools.  Community Managers are usually well devoted to the mmorpg and community that they are involved with, and are provided or allowed into such positions because of their passion, game knowledge, appreciation and community connect and building skills.  Maybe I'm over-thinking it, but it has some level of significance that we're usually not privy to.

    Thanks for gracing us on the Mortal Online forums, your opinions and wisdom are refreshing.  Feel free to continue sharing you views throughout the site. image But, would you mind staying on topic?  Lets get this thread back to Kootenay/MO

     That would most definitely be true, were there any proof that he has actually stopped playing MO and given up as lead moderator, but there is none. All the OP gives us is an application to a clan that plays Perpetuum. All that means is that he is playing Perpetuum and has applied to a clan, nothing more. You and other posters are reading too much into this.

     

    Now, the moment that a post goes up on the official MO boards, announcing that he has stepped down from his moderator position, then you can begin talk like this. If there is any truth to the rumors of a shut down, and he is indeed a rat fleeing from a sinking ship, a post declaring so shouldn't be too far off.

    Show me a formal statement of him leaving MO then  I will give you credibility. Either then that it just him wanting to play an other game besides MO which is perfectly fine because all devs do that to their own games.

     

    Its all about the timing, in the last month:

    1. SV acknowledges they arent making money with subs

    2. Stocks hit all time low

    3. Numerous employess leave SV

    4. Koot starts looking for a new game

    5. Rumors of Mortal Online closing

     

    Kootenays actions are minor alone, but added to what else has been going makes #5 not seem that remote.

    Kootenay's moderation was always under Henrik's orders.

    He (koot) is probably just tired of all the BS and is seeking refuge in a new game, a fresh start, like turning the page or something.

    Who wouldn't lose hope with Mortal after all these months of a released beta game?

    I lost it a long time ago...

    Well, look on the first page of mortal general discusion and read titles.

    It takes no rocket scientist that this site REALLY looks like nothing but a troll nest from the outside and you could count reasonable people who post without hate on fingers of two hands.

     

    Best examples in 2 recent threads.

    RUMOR is the keyword and some people want to believe or just believe unquestionably that that rumors are the only truth around and there is no way in haven that its only rumor that have nothing to do with how the things are actually. Hell, best months long example posts in this very thread.

    he hasnt quit mortal online, he is still an acitve moderator and subscriber. He has however subscribed to a new game. MO is 1 of quite a few games he plays :)

    So its true, he's started playing a new game.  Guess theres one "rumor" confirmed.  Why or to what extent he playes other games is irrelevant.  Point is he does

    I wonder how long it would take you to run into WoW forums and start to scream 'doomsday, they are closing WoW' if you'd knew that blizzard CEO started playing some other game additionaly to WoW image because this is exactly what you do for some unknown to me reason. I always wanted to ask you that question-WHY are you still on this boards? You have not played MO for months, you have no idea what changed and what not, you base everything on assumptions and selevtive reading picking whatever suits you out of context-why? Are you being paid for that? Each and every normal person would change the game for one they enjoy, but not you-why?

    So the title of this thread should be "kootenay is not a monogamous gamer"?

    Quitting MO and playing multiple games are 2 very different things. Do you know how many he played when he started MO?

    Aye, Mortal Online does not have enough to it to hold the attention of many gamers, including those that are on the mod team. If mortal online was a decent mmorpg, then it would be engrossing enough to not be just 'one of six games that kooteny plays regularly'.

     From the link in the original post:

    7.   What other notable games have you played?

    BF2, 2142(best FPS around in my opinion), MO, BF heros(sprints inbetween), BC2, AOM(with xpack), a few other games here and there

    I really dont care what Kootenay does/hasn't done. His actions are just one more indicator to the state of MO and possible future.  Aa already stated in this thread :

     Welcome to the MMORPG>COM Forums!  Always great to see new faces around here and it helps to keep the discussions flowing!  Don't worry too much about making a mistake in your first post... not a big deal... we have all had our own facepalm moments.

     

    As to your second point... why wouldn't they have simply locked the topic with a final clarification from the person in question... who is the Lead Moderator and could certainly have done so...  Why delete it from the forum in it's entirety?  Sounds to me like Henrick got involved...  

     

    Anyhow.. hope you stick around for awhile.  Too many people seem to pop in for a week and then disappear forever...

     Welcome to the MMORPG>COM Forums!  Always great to see new faces around here and it helps to keep the discussions flowing!  Don't worry too much about making a mistake in your first post... not a big deal... we have all had our own facepalm moments.

     

    As to your second point... why wouldn't they have simply locked the topic with a final clarification from the person in question... who is the Lead Moderator and could certainly have done so...  Why delete it from the forum in it's entirety?  Sounds to me like Henrick got involved...  

     

    Anyhow.. hope you stick around for awhile.  Too many people seem to pop in for a week and then disappear forever...

     

    It's sad you know, right when I start to make friends they disappear. Or rattle on about nonsense and / or tuna sandwiches. Either way, I feel the same pain ;)

    The people who post in indie sandbox game forums tend to stick around for awhile I've noticed. Most people are trying to find a game that suits them, then stop posting because they are actually playing MMOs and not arguing about them. Sandbox people... pretty sure most of them are doomed to wander the desert for a few more decades at least. Of course its these 'great' indie launches that keeps them so satisfied with the current MMO offerings...
