Let's start by clearing the air about these rumors of 'cheating' or whatever that seem to be floating around periodically. One must consider that Administrators code the mud, and as such, yes some of them might send their morts through an area they have coded and completed a quest in that area, this is something I would do as well. However I have no reason to believe that any one coder has shared information of their areas with any other coders. That being said, while one administrator may have superior knowledge over one area, they would be at the same level as the rest of us for any other quest to be undertaken. Most of these quests are in fact simple to figure out, and simply a pain in the butt as far as getting the drops to happen, involving a lot of camping or farming sometimes, which is to be expected or the quests would be too easy.
It hurts my brain when people say 'oh this is impossible' or 'oh there's no way to figure that out.' I have gone through three quests already and am working on two more, all they took was a little bit of sitting back and reviewing the information presented to me. On occasion I did have to go off and do something else until it dawned on me, and yes on one of them I had to re-watch an episode of the T.V. series to acquire the information needed, but over all I find the questing experience well worth the payout.
Now on to the player base. At worst the guys can be a bit hectic or touchy, but not really without reason (I.E. being pushed into that state). Admittedly I have willingly sparked what I would consider to be a few highly heated debates (most would call them arguments, some might go so far as to say full out fights), with the sole purpose of testing the limits. Sorry guys, just had to know. Now I have a very good understanding of how most would react to certain things, which help because a majority of things that fall into my humor can be somewhat on the edge of acceptable. In all the player base is calm mannered and fairly nice. They do have a dry humor at some times but that is to be expected online.
The Admins... hoo boy here we go. Really the only thing I can say about them is they do what they can to put out the fires while still maintaining some breed of normality in their daily lives. It can be hard with problems ranging from coding fixes to the rest of us just being assholes from time to time in our own little ways. I can honestly say I do not envy them.
I'd give this place a thumbs up overall. It's a fun game with a friendly environment. Just don't expect everything to be handed to you.
