Forded (with log) (Kaldae)back


2004/03/12 18:18, Aschit: 
Old names like PitBoss and HolyElf, old ford, old tick-regen, old stab (you almost never see logs of those), it's got it all!

2004/03/12 20:25, Andróg:   
Someone explain me the fenomen of 'old ford', please? What exactly was it and why did it have the affect the log showed?

2004/03/12 22:31, Jocke:   
Oh that log really brings back some old memories. A true blast from the past.

2004/03/13 08:58, Rimuldor:   
heh. *dream* I liked old ford. Pity I quit for a long while, and it was gone when I got back :(
Agreed, though! Old names! Old stab! Old ford! Old Regen! Beautiful and moving log!

2004/03/13 17:58, Fredde: 
androg, think about it. WHY did it have that effect... oh why!!!

Androg: old Ford effect was the following: any evil-aligned char going into Ford of the River Bruinen room was instantly swept away a few rooms south, losing the equipment in the inventory, as well as moves and hit points. That did NOT happen, however, when the ford was frozen. That's when darkies could cross and you would get, sometimes, the famous Rivendell raids. Those were really rare, though, because rdell was *tough*

Heh. I remember that pukes used the room 1e of ford to rest during the night, if they were too scared or unprepared to face the dozens of trolls that would constantly be by ford. Was funny that I didn't play for a few years and, when I finally came back a couple years ago with one of my chars (a long-time lowbie), I left rdell, walked to the 1e ford (at night) and decided to sleep there until daytime.

Got stabbed dead. Really traumatizing :P

eeesusenwd

2004/03/15 19:06, Smasha: 
Ah, the good old times :-) when every winter night at ford was a bloodbath and sometimes we did raid Rdell too *daydream* right, someone borrow me a time machine please, I wanna go back there :-P

MAN, WTF IS UP WITH ALL THE SPAMLOOTING GOING ON LATELY? BACK IN THE OLD DAYS, PK WAS <honorable/better/fairer> AND PEOPLE DIDN'T TAKE SHIT THEY DIDN'T NEED!!!

2004/03/16 11:27, Dragóth:   
save the bread!

2004/03/16 12:27, Winzy: 
Thats a lie! They allways gaced ;O

2004/03/16 21:18, Wiseman: 
I like the old style ford better :)

I imagine it was great fun!

2004/03/16 21:26, Sogard:   
Yeah Deimus, heaven forbid you loot a teammate's eq so that the enemy doesn't. ;)

I want this ford. Seeking makes life easier for dakies as you'll have people hiding in moors stabbing seekers, and let's face it, we all want to raid rivendell, which is 100% safe atm, which kinda goes against the NOIDEA of having safe areas to learn commands(you know, like gh, and the zones w of shire in general) ;)

2004/03/20 17:09, Elrik: 
grumbag was probably .cz

2004/03/23 08:03, Enforcer: 
Ahh yes, the ford and the fights near rivendell bridge where 2 elf guards were and pukes with instaspells...:)

2004/03/23 17:56, Björn: 
Next time they want money for a new server they should sell the code for an old version of MUME!

2004/03/29 12:37, Devastator: 
Really classic.

2004/09/15 15:28, Goretongue: 
ahhhh those names! flashbacks !!

2005/05/17 02:52, Klach: 
wow, that looked sooo fun

2005/09/23 09:20, Odoinn: 
Does anyone know *why* the old ford behaviour was removed? It's more in keeping with 'the book', after all.

2005/09/26 12:09, Nilin:   
Odoinn, imagine 20 pukes sitting west of ford and spamming hit *troll*. Some troll steps in, flees east and the hunt begins for awful troll. Hallelujah, free xp, wps.

2009/04/11 15:02, Devastator: 
They could reduce the effect of Ford instead of removing it :P

2009/05/05 22:02, Echo: 
Christ, I still remember the first time I forded a troll (those days I was even more clueless) and then I jumped back in trying to find all the stuff I lost *peer* It helped that ford was like 3 seconds from warrens though, and cellar was by grinder, and warrens had a tower, etc...., Old warrens/ford I still think was better than todays version.

2010/02/12 19:12, Britney: 
Old ford was cool =) Ahh the memories...
