Glory, Glory, Hallelujah


I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
“As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal”;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.

GMs,

So we are now on the 17th December and I have had absolutely no response to the 2 emails sent below.  This is not good enough.  I have now lost a very senior, very trusted and highly reliable member of the team because of the issues below, this is not good enough.  Furthermore, he has now had his forum access removed – that is outrageous.

I have had serious concerns about the abilities, attitude and previous actions of Kama as a GM, but this week has shown total incompetence, power-tripping, ignorance of the people who actually know what is going on in the community and who bust their balls trying to keep this game going.  This is totally not good enough.

The community is in outrage, the events have been a joke of clear opportunities for exploit and/or accidental exploits that innocent players are then banned for.  Utterly ridiculous and beyond not good enough.

I am not quitting, but no doubt I am about to be sacked as another power-trip action – well so be it, because I am really struggling continuing to offer my services with Karma at the helm or actually anywhere involved with NF1 anymore.  In the meantime whilst I have access in place I will be releasing those accounts from suspension that I believe are unwarranted bans.

Vick

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat:
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

No response to e-mails?  Vick did that to me.  Support tickets too, and I know that applies to many more people.  Losing people; those who are experienced and reliable?  Vick did that to the community.  Forum access removed unjustly?  Vick made a career of doing that.

“I have had serious concerns about the abilities, attitude and previous actions of Kama as a GM, but this week has shown total incompetence, power-tripping, ignorance of the people who actually know what is going on in the community and who bust their balls trying to keep this game going.  This is totally not good enough.”  Without question, this, coming from Vick, is the highest irony in the history of NavyField.

The community is in outrage and for once Vick claimed to care.  All of a sudden he had a problem with innocent players getting banned.  Out of nowhere, Vick made moves to do the right thing with his absolute power.  To little, too late, and that’s just too bad.

Karma works for SDE.  Karma is a paid employee.  Karma is not some volunteer who has been imbued with power by the company.  Karma is the representation of SDE to the game, just like any other GM would be.

Karma is not Vick.  Karma is not some volunteer who has been imbued with power by SDE.  Karma is the power of SDE.  Karma is not going to be able to hide from SDE what is actually going on in the game and in the community; why should he desire to?  If concerns over Karma’s consistency exist, let us remember the consistency of Vick.  If fears over Karma’s powers frighten, let me know if you can’t find that one forum post that is still there.  If you think that Karma is bound to be worse than Vick, tell us all how many months you spent under suspension for having done nothing wrong.

Karma is not going to be perfect.  His start has been rampant.  The consolation I keep is knowing that Karma answers to his superiors at SDE; the comparison is that Vick spent his days hiding things from SDE (proven factual beyond my wildest dreams in the last seven days).  I will continue to come back to that which I have been saying to many people for this last amazing week: I would rather NavyField die by the hand of an unstable weirdo who I’ve panned in the recent past than it be buried by a Manc wank.

I, for one, welcome our new Korean overlord.  He started his reign with a miracle.  How can I not have faith?

<><><><><>

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is Wisdom to the mighty, He is Succour to the brave,
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of Time His slave,
Our God is marching on.

    Karma has the opportunity to keep NF afloat. Getting rid of vick may have plugged the leak, but now we are left with all the water in our compartment….The steps taken over the next 3-4 months will give us an answer on survival or demise.

    I am inclined to agree with you that I would rather see our ship sink with Karma at the helm than Vick. However, we should not have to settle for the lesser of 2 weaknesses.

    All of this change is great, but is way past overdue. The NF servers will be shutting down once the population falls below a sustainable number of players.

    In a 3D market, NF and its “uniqueness” are seriously obsolete.

    The one thing SDE should’ve done, was create NF2 in the likeness of NF1. Unfortunately we ended up with the steaming pile of dog shit that is NF2. There is no way our beloved NF1 will be able to compete with upcoming Naval combat games. This community shrinks more and more every day due to SDEs inability or unwillingness to update/fix our game.

    I remain hopeful (and delusional) that NF1 is here to stay forever, and that nothing will change that. I only hope that when the live servers go offline, someone will show me how to host my own server so I might be able to have memories of a game that has consumed 10 years of my life this February…

    hahaha looking back in hindsight this is amazing.

    And history just repeats itself. New GM, New Hope and more dumbass moves from SDE.
