    My friends today on January 6, 2023, there is a controversy about GM buffs not being delivered. Instead of GM buffs and subsequent (strongly implied) re-buffs, players were instead deceived by being told to move to a specific FM map (for said strongly implied rebuffs) & instead effectively kidnapped & moved to El Nath for ~10 minutes of "sliding".

    This "sliding" involves permanently stunning players and "bombing" them with an explosion, sending them left and right all across the El Nath map.

    For someone who expected to get GM buffs on my 6 characters so I could level them, being teleported across the world & not even returned to my original map is quite disappointing. Not to mention there were NO gm buffs after the fact, completely disregarding the many players who were clearly expecting GM buffs.

    You can imagine how moving 6 separate characters to a specific GM buff map is quite a bit more difficult and time consuming than simply pressing the FM button. The missed opportunity in levelling my characters from the time wasted for this custom event & not getting GM buffs on top of that is annoying.

    After all the above, still no GM buffs

    EDIT: I missed the original buffs which is why I went to 7-12 for the strongly implied rebuffs (which did not happen)

    She was pretty clear that you would be teleported to El Nath. She was even considerate enough to offer a TP back to Vic when she said from the start that it was meant to be one-way. Not sure how this is a scandal if you just read what GM wrote lol

    The strongly implied rebuffs were not delivered and many users also believed the same and presumably also disappointed

    I don’t get which part of gm rebuffs was heavily implied she was offering a fun activity as an alternative for those who missed gm buffs. You should enjoy the effort that gms put in to interact with our community instead of whining about your gm buffs.

    I think you missed the part where the GM explicitly said "Anyone who didn't get buffs or doesn't know what to do with their buffs, or just wants to have a fun time come 7-12". But in case it wasn't clear, the GM also gave people 6 opportunities to realize it was not a re-buff, but you stayed despite super explicit announcements that it was not in fact a re-buff event.

    Sounds like you fucked around and found out

    Did you miss the part where I said I was moving 6 characters because the GM buffs were in a specific FM map and not the FM itself?

    Oh I'm so sorry, I forgot multiclienting negates the importance of reading comprehension. My condolences, may I suggest learning English on Duolingo for your New Years resolution?

    If I'm moving other clients I can't readily see live messages posted in a specific FM map (that other characters are in) that aren't global blue text?

    Why do you resort to namecalling and personal attacks when you don’t have 6 characters for buffs.
    Multiclient meta has been normalised for years and I see that it got you so good lol
