As we all know, darDar is no longer "creative lead", and he will not be doing the wm
This has left Urraka and Helloer to decide what to do next
I've spoken with them prior to darDars disappearance, about creating the wm. They said that since darDar has been working on it, they don't feel like there's any need to let me or anyone else do the wm, they'll simply take the wm darDar makes because that makes it simpler for themselves and doesn't upset anyone in the admin sphere.After darDar went missing I've talked with them again.
However, since not 100% of people supported my wm, they don't think I should be doing it. I then asked what they intend to do with the wm, and their response is that they're letting it up to the gather staff to decide.This was over 3 weeks ago
. I've tried to talk to the admin staff, that they may supervise my work on the wm, if that makes them more comfortable, and that I'm seemingly the only one who puts effort into making a wm.
The decision that has been reached by the gather staff is that they won't care about the wm until the alpha/beta/release candidate is released.
Their motivation is that there could be some changes to the weapons.ini that allows for further balancing options.
At a very shallow glance you may believe this is reasonable... but it isn't, and here is why.The attitude, "we'll do it later", means they're very unmotivated.
The time span between alpha/beta/rc and full release could be 1 week
, or a few weeks, of course it could take longer still, but I suspect it'll be pushed to release rather quickly.Because of this lack of time, there won't be much time to work on a wm, a wm they haven't even started working on.
Another point is that there's no need to wait until potential new "tools" for the wm
has been released. The weapon balance will remain the same
, the key issues is TTK, ease of use for every weapon, their weaknesses, strength, TTK based on different ranges and different movement speed. With new tools all of this remain the same, the only thing these tools will give is options
on how to achieve these goals. The time to develop the wm will more or less be the same, no matter if they start now, or if they start after they potentially get new tools (i.e. it'll be more rushed if they start close to release).
So I need your support to change this apathetic attitude towards the wm.I've been working on a wm version for a very long time, run my own gather channel, and even gotten it on the official gather channel (they now refuse to put it back in).
Do you really want this to be the actual last movie? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5hH0f2UvOYVote for me to be your wm chancellor. I will fix everything.
(my wm focuses more on gun accuracy, the TTK is just about the same as current wm. I've also made an effort in making all the weapons usable, guns like DE see little use, and I've made attempts to solve this issue

It has a ranked system right now. !add or ++ to add, and !remove or -- to remove. After a match you have to write !reportloss or !rl if you lose.
