Finnian Posted January 2 Report Share Posted January 2 Happy New Year, Jellybeans! It is traditional to mark the beginning of the year by looking back at what happened in the past year, and thinking about what you hope to achieve in the year ahead. After all these years, I know better than to make too many lofty promises, which more often than not tend to be sidelined by unexpected circumstances that arise for the server or in the lives of the staff. Any changes or improvements that may be seen in 2023 will remain a mystery for now... but if you keep reading, you may see Kathis mention some of his goals. As always, we assure you that we will keep this server running as long as we can, whatever it takes! There is one upcoming thing we can tell you about, and the announcement banner contains a hint. Later this month is Lunar New Year, and we will have a mini-event. Get ready to hop over to Louyang with your carded equipment! In the meantime, we have compiled some facts and figures from 2022 that you may find interesting. 2022 By the Numbers Spoiler Number accounts that signed in during 2022: 2315 Voted GM Events: Life bomb 16 Bomb poring 8 Endless Tower 5 Fate Dice 4 GM Odd monster out 4 Warp roulette 3 Draco Bounty hunts 2 Hide and seek(gm) 2 Name that monster 2 Secret Item 2 Chase Finnian 1 Chase Kathis 1 Draco Monster Invasion 1 Draco odd Monster out 1 Draco Warp 1 Naked Scavenger Hunt 1 Top Character Event Appearances: Bomber Will 30 Tachy 26 ecoh 22 Kaeri 21 Fujoshi 15 Moka Akashiya Ceres 15 Jellybeans Awarded: 344 Jellyblobs Purchased: 4,861 NPC Shop Sales: 20,056,814,095z NPC Shops Paid Out: 45,838,572,521z Player Buy Shops Paid Out: 2,391,133,650z Vendor Taxes: 569,453,810z Rogues Stole: 779,089z Top 5 MVP Slain: Garm 1916 Golden Thief Bug 1882 Gopinich 1432 Tao Gunka 1451 Atroce 1310 Top MVPers: Owls 3056 Dyon Flowright 1093 S i e g r a i N 919 Packer lll 853 zunzun 821 3482 MVP were killed in 06guild_01 1747 MVP were killed in xmas_dun02 1695 MVP were killed in prt_sweb4 1309 MVP were killed in beach_dun 1282 MVP were killed in mosk_dun03 Next maintenance is on February 6, 2022! And now, a message from Kathis We'll be keeping the wrapping present mechanic enabled. Players will be able to wrap presents for their friends birthdays, anniversary, or other special occasions. Please do not try selling or trading these gifts with other players in exchange for other goods or services. If you are on the receiving end of these presents or gifts, do not accept them for goods or services. You won't know what's inside until you open them, and we know how some of you love to "be funny". With that out of the way, my new years resolution will be trying to roll out something that I call Player IDs this year. This will be an ID associated with the player, not the account or the character. After that has been rolled out, I'll then turn my sights to WoE. So let us raise our glasses and hope that 2023 will not bring any unwanted surprises.
