So let's play this game,
1-4) You guys mined into reinforced tiles (a bug that was being fixed that day), to get the artifact. Alright, that is shady but if that is how you want to play the game then go for it. Should the GMs have gotten involved in it? I don't personally think so, but if they felt that you abused something then that is up to them.
5) I know nothing of this outside of occasionally hearing Pagani complain in private about how burt doesn't really help much and about how he can be difficult to work with and that he was going to be training up some new GMs for some multi GM events.
6) I remember Rudie saying that the artifacts should have been put back in the ground so I don't really know why they weren't. I do know that he was getting ready for work right before you guys raided us.
7) It's annoying to have the whole server against one kingdom but that is just how it is, I think some people were a bit discouraged but we knew that alliance wouldn't last that long and that things would turn back to normal eventually.
8) While true this has nothing to do with it. 4v14. Should we have just died and had people lose champ lives pointlessly?
9) I had already left TS at this time so I don't know if this is true or not.
So you bring up a lot of things to sort of flex your PvPenis in order to justify you guys completely ruining the server. Let's be honest, you guys raiding and taking the artifacts was not a big deal, some people in mexico overreacted but once I logged back in I saw that the damage could have easily been repaired within an hour, maybe two. But what you guys did afterwards was what was bullcrap. Using admin powers to make a bunch of people demigods? Teleporting people to you and lowering their skills and then killing them and then teleporting them to you again? That is BS. Did mexico overreact about the artifacts and the raid? Yes. Should burtmaklin have had his GM powers taken away? I don't know, that is an admin and GM issue, we as the players shouldn't be involved in that at all. Should you guys have abused your ill gotten admin powers to completely ruin the only fun PVP server in WU? Nah man, that's shitty.
I'm not even going to go into detail how you use your modified client to make things bigger so that you can find and target them before we can even target you.
There were wrongs on both sides, but you were the guys who screwed the whole server over by doing all that BS after the raid.
