I know that reviews tend to concentrate on Mechanics, but it appears that Godwars II has been hit by some issues I’d like to talk about. Despite Kavir and Ragnar’s assurances that the game is a happy lovely place now, Batty and his brother still continue to control it.
The game essentially is controlled by two brothers, Batty and Bonecaster. These two have about 95 characters between them (however they try to split it up and talk about other people playing from the same place), and keep the top two slots on the pantheon board by mapping these 95 chars up so that no one else can get there. Essentially the only way to get up to the top two is to have that many alts to map with as well, thus making it less Godwars and more Altwars.
Apart from their alts, which are fairly annoying, they have taken to spamming the main meeting point for players with chars that just send random messages to Gossip and the village around them. Gossip is uncensored and unmonitored, so the solution here is to just tune the channel off and forget about it, but it’s not. We now have yet another bot that when a specific player and his alts (Zoal) speak, sends more random messages to chat. It gets incredibly spammy and annoying, but again nothing is being done about it.
Finally these buffoons have taken to walking around after players they don’t like and stealing the kill from their chars with a character much older. Want to argue with them, awesome! You can do so as long as you have a couple age 500 characters to fight them with, because odds are it’s going to be a two on one. It’s not uncommon for them to use an age 500 (which is the highest level in the game, if you will) to lower a player down that they couldn’t beat before, then use a character that player’s age to kill him, thus earning a victory.
It is incredible to me that Kavir lets this go on. They have badgered and insulted newbies, spent more time voting Godwars II down and talking trash, as well as harassing players and at times making them quit. I recommend Godwars II for the mechanics; see other reviews, but until Kavir actually changes something notable to keep these two from making the game hell for anyone who they don’t like, it is pointless. There are numerous comments talking about changes and etc., but there has yet to be a change to fix these problems. It would also be worth noting that it’s the same couple of people that try to push every review down with comments. Some are valid, some are less so. I hope that eventually Kavir gets tired of seeing these two trash his game and wants to do something about it; finding other bad reviews where they were listed as problems is not all that hard.
Kav should be commended for seeing their attempts to make the game harder as issues and fixing them, but there becomes a point where they are less players and more parasites on the game to be removed. When they are not around spamming the hell out of the main channel, people have fun and there’s a lot of good conversation on the channel usually. You have a fair bit of flaming and arguments, but it’s nothing that tends to go on.
