Good Morning,

I'm starting to get really tired of some of the threads that reoccur. Some of my personal unfavorites include:

  • Is the Community Active?
  • I'm quitting the game, this is why...
  • Stardock is responsible...
  • Everyone kicks me from online games
  • Everyone cheats
  • My sound doesn't work
  • The unclean beast is overpowered

One solution to reduce the frequencies of these posts is to develop a FAQ that addresses all of the questions. This way at least the players who are willing to read the thread will have their questions answers. Those that don't, probably don't deserve an answer anyway.

Now, I could write the FAQ, but I'm working on bugfixing. I'm sure that people would rather me spend time doing that than working on this, so I'm going to put in some starting materials for a FAQ. I'd like the rest of the community to chip in and help to write parts. Rough outlines, whole sections, proofreading, whatever. If you have a minute and like to have people listen to you, this is the place to do it. Once we get a sufficiently developed document, a new thread should be created to be stickied in the main forum. We should probably also get SD to remove some of the out of date stickies while we are at it. If anyone wants to take charge of this and put in a lot of effort, they are welcome to it.

Rook isn't tier 3. He is just /really/ bad in the wrong hands.

Rook is definitely tier 2, and the best Demigod to have in your team for gangs (towers = a place to tele).

The rook is slightly below Oculus in the tier 2 category. It looks like a good start Ptarth, but it's still pretty rough, good luck.

A Few Suggestions

  1. You should bold the questions
  2. You should number the responses to make it more organized
  3. Move Rook to tier 2
