The system goes like this:
Oldbie 98 - 99
Midbie 00 - 02
Newbie 03 - 06

Congratulations!
But next year it'll be oldie 98-00 right?

Would you prefer a stricter system as such?

I think he'd prefer that you not class people by when they started. You're not an oldbie just because you've been playing since 98. You're an oldbie if you've been in the community long enough to have a lot of people know you, and have contributed to the community enough, and are a respected member of the community. Also it's about how many hours you've put into Graal. Not "oh I started in 98 but I've only played Graal one time... but now I'm back, so I'm an oldbie!".

Unlike the old bodies the sprites of the new ones were made seperately thus allowing for greater gani flexibility. I was working on the Classic body ganis for 2k1 but some things just aren't possible with them, example: kun-fu...I can make 'em punch..maybe an ugly head-butt but in the world do you make them do an efficient kick?

I would prefer if people stopped making up arbitrary numbers to discriminate themselves from random other people. Konidias kind of got it.

I really hope the old bodies are being brought back. There was a poll. Old bodies won. The gani limitations kindof suck, but I would way rather be able to move around and fight in the smooth old way, then have these new awkward bodies and some ganis that look ok but contribute little to the game.


I am only playing 2k1 now in the hopes that the old bodies come back, so I can pk and spar like I used to.

Um....if you check the amount of valid votes, new bodies won =) It was stated that you post your reason and there was more for new bodies. For all I know some doof could have gotten all his friends (whom possibly don't even play 2k1) to just click and vote "Classic bodies irl"

I meant "the feelings of the rest of us," "the rest" referring to a selection of forum-goers.

And what's the point of even having an option to colorize text if nobody uses it? Why does it bother you so much? Maybe your consistent double-posting bothers me.

And if Lyndzey wants to talk about the HP system here, that's fine by me. It does bother me, as well. Considering that I made the thread, shouldn't I be the one to determine what is and what isn't off-topic?

Seriously, quit acting like some kind of authority around here. It's fairly annoying.

You can't throw people's votes out just because they didn't post. The reason most people voted for the old bodies yet didn't post is probably because it doesn't require any explanation.

What is the point of having the option to vary text size and font if no one uses it? Hay let's all post in size 100 impact
Perhaps you should learn about how threading works before complaining about double-posting.

No, you should not.

You are fairly annoying as well!

No, it is actually because they were bribed by Pachuka to oppose progress! Making up retarded reasons is fun!

So why do you not just shut up already?

You're welcome to get out of my thread.
Yeah, if the thread belonged to you I even might, but as it concerns some actually rather interesting topic, I am just going to stick around and contribute!
You are also welcome to stop visiting the forums if I annoy you! You can even quit Graal if I am that annoying!

If you're going to pretend to be a moderator, at least behave accordingly. [/lol no more green]
Huh, I had assumed that you are just sending PMs because your posting is throttled by not having a gold/vip account, so I thought I was making you a favour by responding publicly. Anyway, you should not resort to the kind of insults that "humilate" you when showed in public.
Also I am not at all pretending to be a moderator, I am not threatening to close your account or ban your threads or anything. But I still get to point out when your posts suck.
