The guild <CTRL> put on a fun little event for people this afternoon. We played hide and seek for cash prizes. It was a lot of fun and I want to thank everyone again for participating.

<CTRL> plans to bring you lots of different events in the future funded out of our own pockets. We love fun, we love being silly, and we love you guys.

So keep watch for your "Hostess with the Mostest" Khaliya in the future. She is always dropping her piggy bank. ;)

EDIT: Some events will be planned and some will be spontaneous as we get "bored" and feel up to it. So keep watch!

NEW EDIT:

About your hostess:

I {Khaliya/Adelaide/Denaliah} have over 15 years of experience running events in many different games starting back with SWG live. Ive run everything from lotteries to number games, PvP events to deco events, as well as hide and seek and so much more. All were funded 100% out of my own pocket and done 100% on my own time. The are NOT Dev run/related.

I look forward to bringing you guys lots of different events here on R1 in the future as they bring me a lot of enjoyment and make my own play time more exciting and worthwhile.

As always thanks for participating and thanks for following the rules of my little events/games so everyone can enjoy and have fun! See you around the galaxy! <3

Just posting to say that at this moment in time I prolly wont be bringing my events back. Why you ask? Ask general chat. >.<

TBH Im getting tired of all the whining/sense of entitlement on this server now. The people that think they are above how the game is SUPPOSED to be played. That special rules should be made just for them because they are afraid of the professions they chose to grind out. Or that everyone else is wrong/has no honor for playing the game the way it was actually designed to be played. It is downright sickening. I wont give another credit to people like that. Im sorry.


RED = DEAD.

I completely agree, how dare those people use chat to chat about something someone doesn't agree with! the chat box was not made to share your opinions people! and how dare your opinion of the system be different from firecracker's. gosh the sense of entitlement, i just can't believe they would use the chat box to chat. that is not what it was made for!

Sorry to see you're not hosting events anymore firecracker, i'm sure a lot of people show up to those and love you for all the hard work you go through to set them up.

I am one of the people that "complained" about how jedi and bh work and how the terminal is currently working. i did it in general chat.

I am sorry to everyone who will no longer be able to attend firecracker's events. to be clear tho, i have never attended one of her events so her credits were never going to me in the first place. i just want to set the record straight on this point. She is not doing this to avoid funding my opinions.

I'm sorry if you're fed up with people having opinions in general chat firecracker, I think i'll start talking less often for the same reason you stopped your events. I'm tired of people feeling entitled, like their opinion is the only one that matters and everyone else should just stop using gen chat...to chat.

Also, there are other channels you can use, so like you said, if you don't want to get hunted, don't play jedi, this is a fair point which i will now use against you..if you do not like the chat happening in general chat, don't look at general chat. it's well within our rights to share our opinions in general chat, it happens every day and we were not breaking any rules, so we were using general chat in a way that it was meant to be used (no rules were broken so no different from BH terminal right?). the sense of entitlement i see in regards to this is sickening!

Don't get me wrong, you have every right to stop hosting your events, anyone who takes that personally or gives you or anyone else a hard time for that is showing a sense of entitlement and they totally don't deserve your credits.

I still think you're awesome khaliya but that doesn't mean I have to agree with you all the time. I really do hope we can work something out in the end, you're usually one of the coolest people on the server.

-Love Ackbar
P.S. It's not a trap.

You were breaking rules Ackbar. You were harassing Khal for her opinion and trash talking other players to include muffinman, Khal, several other Bh, Koyamada and so on. You were also trash talking the server and the systems Savage has in place and says are working fine. We all watched.

Savage has said many times not to complain about his server and stuff here. If you arent happy about it go play elsewhere. Those are hi words. So trying to blame Khal for your actions isdisconcerting.

Then watched you flip your lid. Just like you did here. *headshake*

But this is CTRLs thread and not the place so we should take this out of here before getting banned.

@Khal Sorry!

Ok one post to clear up some stuff then please keep this out of my thread. NOW Im looking at you Coarm. That post was beyond ridiculous and uncalled for. >.<

Lets be clear about several things: My decision here is MY decision. It is MY money and MY time. I do not in any shape or form have to hold these events. I was doing it out of my own generosity and have given out MILLIONS to the community through them. So respect my wishes please and keep your petty comments to yourselves.

That said, this decision was not 1 day in the making. Today's antics in chat were the sinking of ship that was already tipped over. Ive threatened before to take my events away if people didnt start treating others better.

The whining about jedi happens almost daily now. It is really tiring to see. I stand by EVERY last thing I said today. Dont like it? Cool but stop harassing me for it. Im not even remotely in the wrong.

Jedi IS a Pvp prof. It always has been. Dont want to die, dont play it. BH exist SOLELY to hunt jedi. Doesnt stinkin matter if you are a baby jedi or a full temp. You arent special or excluded. So stop thinking you should be and that everyone who plays BH as intended has "no honor". That is pure BS.

EVERY stinkin day it is the same crap. "Whaaaa I ended up on the terms and a BH hunted me" "Whaaaaaa no BH on the server have honor, they are all gutless" "Whaaaaaa you killed me while I was afk, you suck!". Over and over and over every dang day. It gets old. Yet for some reason everyone INSISTS on having a jedi. Yet they refuse to deal with how it is meant to be played here. >.< Hence the entitlement comments.

Jedi will never change. And General chat is NOT the place for your complaints about the hardships of being a jedi. You are NOT special. All of us that have jedi have been in your shoes. We dealt with the system, you can too.

Is the system faulty? Yup, more than likely. But will it change? Nope. Savage has said several times it is working as intended and he will close tickets about it and will not tell anyone how visibility works. Jedi are supposed to be careful. SUPPOSED TO BE IN HIDING. Not sure why no one gets that here.

It is like I told everyone in chat today...you have to roll with the punches. You cant change things so adapt. Get a rez ring. Get a guild that has BH etc in it that will have your back. Make friends with a doc. Make friends period. Do whatever you have to get to full temp. But dont whine. You cant get mad when you do and find no sympathy.

If you dont like the systems in place here then honestly... go play elsewhere. Savage will tell you that himself and will prolly ban you if he catches you complaining about his server and the systems he has in place here. He doesnt take kindly to complaining. So dont blame ME for just telling you like it is. I've been here a long time.

Also, I told Coarm earlier my comments today werent directed at him, they were directed at the person saying no BH on the server have honor. Yet he went completely crazy on me regardless. Harassing me for stuff I didnt even do. I may lead my guild but I do not tell others in it how they can and cant spend their money. So please leave me out of your BS. You got all that for running your mouth. That had nothing to even do with me. >.<

That said, I have been getting tells all day long with support, thanks, and congratulations for what all I said in chat today. I know how to play the game right and others do too. So Coarm...dont be surprised if you keep on and on and more people step forward to place bounties. You made a lot of enemies today. Ive already been told people will donate to my guild to place bounties on you. So just a friendly warning.

/tiphat

Lets move on now please.
