The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Random] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.

Armageddon is a great mud, in game and in character.
It's amazingly deep, hardcore, and alive.
It's a wonderfully crafted world and
it shows a lot of passion has been placed into the game over the years.
It's worth while mud if your willing to put forth the time
and have the capacity for it.
It's a bit grindy, and parts of the code are unnecessarily hidden and
the community can be needlessly vague
about the correct way to build a character, code wise.
It is an RPI but it seems be a mini game just navigating the code the first
few character so you can actually work into a role you wanna play down the road.
I feel this is the games only real down side is it can be difficult
stuck playing the same 'I dunno anything' role, or
'I weak as hell and inept everything even after 10 days played'.

Staff are very much human and your interactions can range from bad to great.
Be respectful, accept their judgement and move on.
There is nothing to be gained from arguing or treating them badly.
All my staff interactions have been more then stellar.

The OOC community is deplorable.
Basically avoid the GDB as much as possible.
So if you wanna play, Play the game, learn to enjoy losing a lot.
Avoid the GDB because the OOC community isn't welcoming,
unless of course you act like a newbie and keep your mouth shut.

As side not, this review is bound to see comments from
other players stating 'such and such is wrong'
It is not, Stats matter, skills matter, items matter GREATLY,
and very important things are hidden from you.
And if you want to play a strong warrior for example,
you'll need to know how stats work, how to gain skills the correct way,
and how to maximize this in a way that doesn't require months of grinding away.
The GDB keeps a thing veil of civility but honestly due the heavy handed
moderation expect passive aggressive attacks at your actual character,
if you have a different opinion. Certain posters are clearly
capable of getting away with more than others, so do not expect
to be apart of the conversation. Unless of course you
agree with the herd mentality.


To recap: Play, have fun. Learn to really enjoy low level weak roles.
OR study up on the meta game and prepare for a grind.
Avoid the OOC community, they're toxic
and can hurt your enjoyment of the game.
Respect staff in all interactions, nothing to be gained by being a problematic.

(The following review comment is the opinion of the comment's author [ShaLeah] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff).

I don't necessarily disagree with anything the poster said except
for one thing in particular which is, oddly enough, a claim that out
of character behavior leads to in character consequences. 'The GDB
keeps a thing veil of civility but honestly due the heavy handed
moderation expect passive aggressive attacks at your actual character,
if you have a different opinion.'

I will urge you to contact staff if you think this is happening to
you.

First of all, very few people will know who you're playing and
that's only if you join a clan with your GDB handle and post in the
roll call threads letting people know who you play. Or if YOU tell
them yourself, of course.

Second, in character actions have to be justified so if you suspect
someone doesn't like you on the GDB and is taking it out on your
character that's a pretty bug accusation, as I said before, inform
staff.

Third, the game is harsh and you should consider that perhaps the
things happening to your CHARACTER are happening to your character and
not you unless you're playing a clone of YOU and are taking the game
personally.

Overall I agree with the OP's opinion but am concerned over the link
between his/her character's tribulations with her/his GDB
discussions.

Please contact staff about it if it's an on going issue.
