I have been a player on this wonderful mud for over 5 years. The last few years this mud has gone completely downhill. DragonSwords used to be a mud that listened to all the players, that ran good and fun social events and actually gave a crap about the players.
The last few years the social events have been downright boring to recycled events year after year. Events like clan battles have been promised for the last couple years. We are still waiting on them. The latest holiday is the same recycled mob and items. How many times can they do a mob that spells up players?
The immortal staff is horrible except for a few immortals. Most of the immortals are more concerned with leveling their mortal alts or helping their friends or jailing people they dislike. Nothing fun is ever done by the staff. Be careful what you say around these immortals. The ones that want to help the players they drive away or never give the proper power or security access too.
The mud is not newbie friendly. Horizon used to be the best place to help newbies. Now its a joke with no helpers on or helpers who use the clan access to level their alts. Any new ideas or skills clearly favor higher level players. For example they have the ability to do mines. However there is no way a newbie is going to know where these areas are or pay for the right to access these mines. Clearly the staff here has forgot how it is to be a newbie and not have access to tons and tons of gold at a whim.
The mud is very much a huge clique. Its very much like high school. If you are not part of the 'cool kids' then you hardly have a voice on the mud nor does the staff care. If you do not pay the proper respect to the staff or speak up about stuff they dislike then you will be tossed into jail or ignored.
Lastly I would like to state it is going to take a lot more than facebook/myspace groups to get this mud fixed. It is going to take a lot of staff members getting their heads straight.
If you are a newbie do not try this mud! You will get tired of it quick!!
