Archive for December, 2011
Sup, rabid readers, to the mega, super blog update. In this blog I will cover all of the recent news and happenings in the community because news in Toribash comes and goes like waves, nothing happens for three months and then suddenly there’s five things to write about in one week. So here goes.
First thing I will alert you to, if you didn’t already see, is that GameMaster apps are open! Yes, the Gms are planning to recruit 5 to 10 players to the trial Gm group with apps ending on December 15th and chosen recruits being announced between December 20th to 30th. How exciting! From there, the best are selected to go on the be the elite event holders of the community who so diligently host tournies and events for your entertainment. They also brought us such events as “Llamas Vs Ponies” and the recent Toriolympics, who’s winners were announced yesterday. Russia taking first place America bringing in second place and Lithuania and Australia coming third.
What’s next…Jarmund has been working on a little project called the Toribank. What it is, is an automated user which takes commands via Pm to chuck tc around. An account owner is the overlord and can add account managers, all of who can manage the tc in the account. It also has a logging feature to track who’s using the tc. It is mainly aimed at clans, who have a designated account made to be the bank that all necessary people have access to. This however is a rule infringement under account trading. Now with the Toribank, clans have a secure bank that doesn’t involve breaking rules. More info can be found here and instructions here. Jarmund has also been busy helping with the Toribash server maintenance currently going on. You might have noticed that playing ingame is dodgy and generally not good at the moment, well, it’s because of this. But keep in mind that things have to get worse before they get better so after this we can look forward to a better Toribash. General information about the maintenance can be found here and details about phase 1, here.
The Clan Council is also currently taking apps for new council members. If you are interested in clans and enjoy seeing them grow and develop, send an app to Fish.
Lastly, December 5th is going to be the first Torinational ishi day, where everyone gets to show their love for ishi more than normal. Set your avatars, sigs, usertitles backgrounds, everything, to something ishi related and show how much you love ishi!
I think that’s about it. Solax out.
