Welcome to the party
A bit too late to be fashionable
Yes, the server is up. No, we're not letting non-staff members on. No, this does not mean the server is opening today. We're currently going through and checking everything to make sure the prison can actually function. Be patient guys
I know but that doesn't mean I should just ignore him
Edit: Gz Cozy on wasting the top post on something useless
I'm sorry to say that all of the previous Guards will not keep their position (Not counting Alphas because they're considered Staff rather than Guards)
Actually cozy the only time people get mad is about a release date is when it is very unspecific and even then it doesn't work and the reason everyone is mad about not getting one is because we have played this server for like 3 years or more I don't know how long its been around I've played for like 3 years and then it goes down to be fixed and then it gets all hyped and the server would have been a huge success if it had opened on time but the people writing the plug ins got lazy or got confused idk which one but it was one and now its just gone downhill a lot of people who were going to play will not now and their are many people who will not be able to play I'm not downing you cozy this is just how it turned out no any one persons fault its just that a huge opportunity was missed and its sad to see that convicted will not thrive as it did once before
Well phrased, unfortunately for Convicted that's 100% true
If I could down vote, I would do it now, staff trust rules, yeah... That's why you told us there are fights between the admins, right? Something isn't adding up, there is something you guys are hiding from us. I'd still like to play on the server if/when it opens, but in all honesty it will be tough to tolerate any of the staff after all the fallouts you guys have had with us, the basic players.
*Note - this is in response to all of the comments about the bad staff/server opening, not necessarily just this quote.
It's very hard for the Alphas when the majority of the work that needed to be done was in plugins/coding, something we can't help with. Since we're a large chunk of the Staff team rendered pretty useless during the down time we started working on the build server, and like a lot of people said it was pretty unnecessary for it to be changed so much, but it was the only way for us at actually feel like we were contributing something. Since we finished building a while ago there's been absolutely nothing. The Staff has been sitting around uselessly because any changes we make to the build world would not have been saved after the files had already been sent to Hex. All we can do is wait for updates from Viper on what Hexa is doing, which the Wardens don't want any of us to share with you at the risk of "pulling a Penguii."
I realize that in saying this I'm pretty obviously trying to shift the blame off of myself/the Alphas, but that's because there was never anything for us to do to begin with other than give random ideas that normally went nowhere due to lack of communication. But of course the Staff is a team and we take the blame together, I'm sorry that the server hasn't gotten up like it was supposed to. After the files were sent to Hex I basically had the same amount of knowledge as you guys. We sat around for weeks waiting for the occasional update from Viper and you guys sat around waiting for us. If it were up to me I'd share much more about what's going on with you guys to get you out of the dark, but that's what Penguii did and now everyone makes fun of her and is angry at the server for false promises. So, what do you guys want? We give you an estimate and you get angry, we do nothing and you get angry.
We're working on it. Just give us time. Complaining about the server not opening gets you nowhere. I'm upset that the server isn't open too guys but that's just life.
Who is Tom and what has he done to Todd
OMG everyone a guy with a time machine appeared in my living room and said that Convicted will open in 2 hours!
wait, what? oh, you're from 2037? so it... it doesn't open in 2 hours? so... release date, June 13, 2037 at 3:00 EST? okay, got it.
Okay everyone, I have a release date! June 13, 2037 at 3:00 EST! Here's a countdown!
Are you sure? That seems pretty optimistic.
I don't know exactly when we'll open, but I'll refer you to SDA's post:
"Greetings Convicted players!
I know you guys are waiting forever, We apologize...but its all penguii's fault! Just kidding
In updates with the server, we are on the final stage before we reopen our doors again, Hex is checking with all the plugins we are adding and making sure everything works perfectly when we reopen again! Just alittle longer, it wont be long for now, we will alert you guys on the release date soon enough, hoping it won't be long from now. I've been waiting like you guys too, I wanna reopen too as well!"
Keep in mind there were a lot of apps and many of them were just as good as yours. I know that you probably spent a lot of time on your app and must be disappointed, but that's just life. Also, your app was not two pages, it was a perfectly regular length but you just made the font very large and put like 3 lines of spacing between each paragraph for some reason.
Even if you don't get Guard when the server first opens, that's no reason to give up or get mad. I had to repost my app like 9 times before I got accepted. It takes patience. Besides, this way you get to experience the new prison for a while before having to devote yourself to guarding in the future.
Edit: I went back and counted, I actually had to post my app 12 times before acceptance
Of course I don't do that kind of crap so I don't know how long it takes to upload the files (Your estimate can't be far off tho)
However, it is hex we're talking about and so it'll probably be a while before he takes action. Don't expect anything to happen tomorrow or anything.
Not that any of you were. I'm pretty sure it's been literal years since the server closed.
Well I'll be gosh darn diddly dumbfounded, there's working being done on the server, it'll actually open at some point during THIS summer? I don't not believe my eyes, someone hold me close, I need moral support.
Anyways, I'm glad the prison will be opening soon, and I dread the number of guards that'll be prowling C, and I dread not having speed 2, or saturation, but I'll get those back soon, even if I have to
aoktear the place to the ground, I will have my saturation!
On a side note, my already terrible PVP has gotten even worse due to lack of 1v7s with the guards, so you have that to look forwards too.
On another side note, Cozy, how are the children?
Well only 2 of them starved this summer, so that's pretty good. Also there's a new one, so that makes.... 11? idk. You need to start paying child support tho.
