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

Well, being a player on 3-Kingdoms has been a good time. Recently, it
seems to be falling apart. My character of almost 6 years was wiped
because of triggers being left on, when it is NOT a wipeable offense.
I think the most disturbing thing about this is, if you spend that
much time on a character and wipe it, you have absolutely no
chance/way of defending yourself. I guess my perks for the $500 I
donated is gone too.

There is also a huge lack of wizards on these days as well. Used to
have a lot of people there to code and help out. A few of the guilds
have been buggy for over a year, coding in guilds is semi buggy (some
of the guilds), constant show of favoritism towards certain players.
When I say favoritism, I was wiped for just having protection triggers
on and I passed out at the keyboard. Some players can do this with no
punishment, because the wizards like them and don't want them to ever
be punished for anything (gets much worse).

You know, I could rag on 3k for quite a while. If you like to try it,
go for it. Most people are in their own little click, wizards show
favoritism, some guilds buggy, clan world def. buggy... and trust me,
if you slip up, any time that you put into your character is toast.
Once again, they trashed my character of FIVE years over a
non-wipeable offense.

This is a pretty lame Grinch. You got wiped because you're one of
the most prolific, abusive people that has ever laid fingers on 3
Kingdoms. You harmed the playing experience for so many other people
that it's actually shocking you were allowed to play as long as you
did. You cheated, harassed people, got caught repeatedly, and bot
illegally and got caught which you freely admit. Then you want to
smear the mud by posting this pathetic attempt of an attack because
you're bitter and hateful? Shame on you, for shame.

If you were not such a repeat offender of the highest magnitude,
you'd never have had a problem for a minor offense. That however is
not the case and I'm rather appalled to would take trying to hurt 3k
one step further with this post. No mud is perfect, 3 Kingdoms is not
perfect, but it's a fun place to play and great community that has
been made better with your departure. Good riddance.

Much of this is untrue. The offense Grinch was wiped for was a form
of botting, an offense which one can be wiped for the first offense.
This was not Grinch's first offense, either. He was a repeat
offender, breaking mud rules often.

There is not a huge lack of wizards on or un-idle. Wizards are not
always around or on call. However, they are not paid either. All
wizards are volunteers, and considering that fact and the fact that
the game is free, they do a darn good job.

Bugs exist in the game, yes, but they do get resolved eventually.
Guild bugs are a problem only if the guild has no active coder - if no
one maintains it, it may not get fixed immediately. The one bug Grinch
is clanworld - but that is because no coders have stepped up to the
challenge of fixing it up and making it work right 100% of the time.

Lastly, wizards do not show favoritism. Some are friendlier than
others, and it depends on what is going on at any given time - if they
are exceedingly busy with something, expect them to say it. Wizards
have friends, but I have never seen an instance of a wizard showing
favoritism to a friend.

Felt I needed to respond to this. I've been playing 3k since I found
out there were text based games other than Terris on AOL. Now, I've
had many incarnations over the years, so I have really no long
standing status on the mud. However, I love playing 3k. From the vast
number of areas to hunt in, to the coolest character glasses (guilds)
I've ever had the chance to play.

Don't let this sour review ruin your chance at a great time.
