Meaning of Becoming a GM??

Post  Rex on Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:22 am

Hey hi Players,
Sometimes I really don't understand why everyone wanted to be a Game Master(GM) so badly.
I mean there are Pros and Cons.
Cons like:
Cant enjoy what normal players do.
Cant really play/chat with other players cos of duties of a GM.
People will keep asking for more event.(even when I am hosting one, They still asking for more.)
Need to solve bug/conflict and ensure there are no hackers and others.

I remembered i asked someone this question, Is becoming a GM very importatnt?
He replied, Yes. If I am a GM, I can help players.

What I meant here is,
Do you really need to become a GM, in order to help others?
Of cos there are limits where the area you could help in when you are a player. But still, every bit counts.

Being a Player that helps
Pros:
OTOT (own time own target)
Have their free time chatting,playing,farming,joining event too.
Able to keep bugging the GMs(I do that when i'm a player. XD!~~)
Most important, enjoy the game.

Anyway,all those above are just what i feel.
You can reply by stating what is the meaning of becoming a GM to you(if you wana become one)
Or even how can you help as a regular player?
Or even how wrong I am. (maybe due to gen gap, i really cant understand)
I welcome all kinds of response.(I really wana know how you guys think abt it.)

P.S. Trust me, Just Maintaining peace and order in the Sever is really a great help.

Cheers
Happy Mapling.

True.

Although if anyone was a GM wouldn't you also be annoyed?
Think about it, put yourself into a GM's shoes, when players come up to you asking for items and crap. We just have to remember they have a life too, this is a " game "

To be honest, i ask for things too, events and all. But we have our limit of how far we go.

Just my opinion :
What advantage would being a GM give you?
Sorry but i really don't understand.

Normal Players :
- Can train people as much as they can (GMS can only give 3rbs)
- Still helping out the community
- Have SOME rare mounts (TheNPC at fm and events)
- Can sometimes ask for a warp
- Host events
- Solve problems
GMS:
- Can only train up to 3 rebirths
- Help out the community
- Have cool items
- Can warp people and the GM him/herself
- Host events
- Solve Problems
----------
The only advantage pretty much is maybe the warping and the items. Hide command and other cool commands. GMS DO hang out with players, they can't ALWAYS hang out, what if the server was lagging like fuck? How the HELL would a GM hang out with you if he/she didn't fix the lag. ( I'm only using lag as an example)
This is all just a game, sometimes we need to realise how much work/pressure we're giving the GM's when they';re giving their everything to maintain the server?

----------
At times i must say some of you abuse your power a bit too much. Many may get annoyed, even i do.
To all faggots,fuckers and sluts ( IF THERE ARE ANY) :
This is my opinion, I;m not trying to be all goody bree. So shut the ass crap and move on. MY OPINION, so gtfo.
fag : yea right
Its true, believe it or not.

I have notice you never have time to chat but how come some gms seem like they do nothing but sit talk and host events?

This is my point of view(Pro & Cons):

Normal players:
Pros:
You can help people train(not sure how many rbs you can help them give)
You can get some rare mounts
Have some cool chair
You can help people get good equips
Have a lot of time to hang out and chat with friends
Participate in events
Cons:
You can't get all the rare mounts
You can't get all the chairs you want
You can't get +32767 items because its a gm command !proitem <id> <amount< the best you can get is from 10% + white scroll + hammer
You don't have hide so you can have some time away from players when needed
You don't have map warp command only the basics but not the !warp <name> <id>

Game Master:
Pros:
Go to any map you want even party quest maps by typing !warp <name> <id> which can get you anywhere even the unreachable maps
Make Msis
Ban Hackers keeping the sever safe and anti hackers,glitcher,etc free you don't have to wait for a gm to ban as long as you have a reason and it's reasonable
Get what ever item you want when ever you want
Have Gm skills
You can help players but not train them
Cons:
You have no time to chat or hang out
You cant really train players
You have so strong you dont really train
Your mostly afk because your either on Xat helping or doing stuff for the sever

This is my point of view and is only a opinion you might think differently

I don't really train anyways. I sit there with people talking and then leave them as soon as a new player shows up. The only thing I want to do is help out Viper, which is why I want to become a GM.

I think the meaning of being a GM is HELPING, not PLAYING. I mean, you'll still get to play, but you'll get to help people much easier. Being a GM enhances your power and gets you fixes to a few other problems like stucks, AP Bugs, and of course, hosting events which I personally LOVE to do for my guild.

at least experience BEING a gm than judging us.

i know, me, myself, sit around and don't do much.
but what's good is that i can HELP the server much more as people ask us GMs to help. yeah, i know. players can ask other players for help but when they really need GMs to help them, we can help.

what i don't like being a gm is that people keep asking you, "how to become a gm? are you a gm? gm can you be my friend? GEEEEEEE-AAAAAAAAAM". and we can't play as much as players can. other than this, i'm alright with being a gm.

if you don't like being a gm, why bother posting an application. ;o.
and uh. i'm not hating. :b

ZOMG i so agree!
I don't get why people are in a big fuss over being a GM.
I remember someone said they wanted to become a GM for experience (Rex should know)
Does she not know the many responsibilities it comes with?! There some people who aren't even
dedicated to the server YET they decide to make a GM APP.
I supose people like to get that certain "power" like getting respect or making players like a slave or something.
(Telling someone to shut up or you'll mute them that sorta thing)
I knew a few people who posted GM APPS (diff server) who wanted to become a GM so they could get attention.
Honestly it makes me sick of how people just want to become a GM not for the purpose of helping players or giving advice
but just because they want Power,Attention,Exp,ETC.
I wish people would grow up and realise not everything is as suspected

I've been the HeadGM for another server before. In my opinion, being a GM is amazing. You get to see players have fun when hosting events. Personally, I like seeing people having fun. You get to help players who are in need of help. Which is what I love doing, helping players/new players. There's alot of reasons being a GM is amazing to me. But then again, there was some things I disliked about being a GM, of course. I won't get into all my dislikes about being a GM though because there isn't alot of reasons "why". Just a few.

i guess it's a pretty good idea to be positive about beign a gm :3 but it honestly isn't that great. When you become a gm your basically not a player anymore. You loose the freedom to help new people for the power to help a couple of the bigger problems that you can't do anything about when your a regular player. People think that if your gm you can do anything you want, but that's not the case. By beign gm you just get more rules forced on you.

If playing is becoming a pain, or seems like a chore, it's time to take a break :/

Okay. I know im pretty late on this one. But I would just like to say a few things.

1. My Gm friends have told me that beeing a Gm is boring as hell and not worth it at all. Well I object. Beeing a Gm is FUN as hell Smile Why you may ask? Because there is just so much to do! Very Happy

2. It is completely true that you dont NEED to become a Gm to help the Server. You can help at a 60% rate as well as a Gm can help accually.

3. People may want to become a Gm because you CAN help at a 100% rate and host some damn good events. And, what I think most importantly. You receive RESPECT and a role in the chain of command.

Of course there is Pros and Cons of beeing a Gm but the Cons would be not beeing allowed to train players or give them Items. Thats no big deal though. I hate training I only talk and try to help, Thats all a Gm would do to but just adding more.

I am reaching for Gm spot because it gives me a job (something to do). and IF I do become a Gm, it gives me a pernament job to do everyday. Gives me a role in the server.

Thast all I got to say. If anyone doesnt aggree with me, well this is just my thoughts :p

Being a GM isn't what you would suspect. It can be fun at times but otherwise it sucks especially if you like to partake in activities >>>me<<<. And people beg you to do alot like give them stuff and do events (some ppl dun take no for an answer)
plus you think you would get respect but that's not true.
