This is taken from an mbx of mine written around 1990 on Micronet
stating my views on Pacifism in response to an ongoing dicussion on the
subject and a mbx from a personna
called Neb...with comments by Lordant at the end.
One of the points brought up by Neb was that in his day when there was
no such thing as pacifism and when you could carry all the powerful
weapons he managed to make it to wiz and so did many others.
Now I used to play in those days and the point I want to make is that
there weren't nearly as many killers around then (the original Winseer
would agree with me on that point).
As well as there not being as
many killers there also weren't as many wizzes. Now if all the wizzes
out there take time to put two and two together and sit down and think
to themselves who are all the killers on the game, they will come to the
conclusion that probably 95% of the killers are wiz seconds.
Now if all the wiz killer seconds went away for a few months and just
left the new players alone I wonder how many paci's there would be!
Now I am just as guilty as any of the wizzes by having a second who goes
around attacking anything in sight but before all of us start to moan
about the number of paci's on the game, maybe we should think about
whose causing it....
Just to illustrate my point, i remember on Essex Mud years ago when all
the personna files had been wiped and everybody had to start all over
again. There was no killing for about two months because everyone was
trying to get their wizzes back!
Makes one think doesn't it????
Killers have come and gone. The first wave of wiz seconds included those
of Ford, Softy, Ossie, Jhary, Lordant. Its always the wizzes who develop
the seige mentality of, "There are getting to be too many of us, lets
stop any more getting there".
I put my killers away ages ago. Firstly
because I was getting too good at it, and secondly there were too many
killers out there!
Regarding the point about Exxex Mud, quite, its
the glut of killers that has forced players to take the pacifist route
