Have a seat kids, because I'm going to tell you a story about the old days of Omerta.

C'era una volta il Hull
Once upon a time, admins just ignored players and their "idiotic" opinions. They simply didn't ask of their opinions, nor did they act like they cared. Of course the players didn't like this attitude, but it was tolerable. The admins simply weren't giving any false hope, and thus the players didn't expect anything real of them either. It was like seeing a ship the players loved broke in half and sank, but the captain didn't promise the passengers the ship would flap out its wings and fly to heaven, instead of sinking.

But then, almost a year ago, at the start of 3.1, the Self-Appointed Dictator for Life, Brando, had somehow seen the lights. Omerta's policy on major issues changed drasticly, for example, they acknowledged that resets are needed for the game, and he promised to listen to players. He even hired a new crew member, Shazam, to listen to all the players and combine their opinions for future policies. More vote of the day's were created. A special Facebook page was made to discuss things through comments with players.

Even though most people are against that last point, the usage of Facebook, because it excludes a major part of the players for discussion, there were clear signs Omerta, and more specifically, the attitude of the admins, were about to change. Players got hope again that admins would listen to them for the first time since 2.4, although of course this required well funded feedback, and most people were a bit happier than before because something was actually happening again.

Footmen? Servants? Lackeys!
As a part of their new found policy against scripters, or at least trying to show they actually were trying to deal with scripters (which is worth a whole article on itself), they introduced lackeys. Enough has been said about this subject already, and most know the pros and cons about them. You can like them or hate them, but fact is more accounts were created and there has almost never been so many highranks in the game since years.

One of the lackeys was a guy named Sluggs. He would do the buying of bullets for you, so with him introduced, nobody needed to do anything any more, except logging in and shoot. He was first tested and introduced on .dm, but because many players were complaining about the downsides of Sluggs, the admins decided to ask the opinions of the players once more.

And thus, this happened:
Pictures say more than a thousand words, so I decided to make screenshots!







Why should we give a fuck?
Clearly, the admins did not care one single bit about the players opinions. This would be no surprise if it was still 2.* or 3.0, but Brando had actually given us hope again... and he crushed it like he would do to bugs. Clearly, the admins only care about money, because, just like the other lackeys, Sluggs is an easy way to extract money from new players or players which don't have enough time. Not very surprisingly, the admins just want to continue the game on their road, on the road that gives them the most amount of money. It's understandable because they are a corporation, but once again they don't care about their customers, which could be a very bad decision in the long term. I've already heard of players who said they would retire if Sluggs was introduced on .com, and are now keeping their word. The fall of Omerta which started in 2.* continues on this way: real players are scared off, in favor of the mass of noobs which are more profitable for them.

The admins may become rich like this, but if the game only exists of brainless sheep which don't care they are being fucked with, what do they really have to show for?

To all 'manual' rankers;

If you want to get rid of script and lackey rankers for good, there is only one thing to do. You must unite. If you can gather an army of 1000 'fair' rankers and for a big alliance, you can lock down every damn city, claim every damn object and kill every damn LC+ that rises instantly. And you can show Brando how his plan to make more money fails miserably.

But, I know this is impossible, because you all feel yourselves on such high horses that you only want to be the boss, even if it's a 30 ppl fam. You wanna be in charge so badly that you keep wasting your life in front of a computer just to get there.
hahaha like there are so many fair rankers xdddd

why would cheaters vote for "no thanks" ?

if you only think with some logic, you would think cheaters would vote for "yes", easy bullets for them right?

so.. im o_0 clueless @ brando's words why he says cheaters influenced the vote
Well sbanks, instead of being honest about the real reason he had to come up with something else heh;) But the real reason is ofcourse to make even more money out of it.

Brando: I still think that dupe accounts will sometimes abuse this feature and a really good example is when we run VOTDs for Resets.

Your welcome Omerta :') And no shit Sherlock, why would cheaters vote for NO if it gives me a big advantage for duping, do the math aye.

Do you think Brando care?

He is spending your money on Chinese whores.

/thread

Make a group of top players + informatic engeeners.. create a new omerta-a-like game..
This game doesn't deserve the community around it.

hell even the best admins left like drunkgamer and shazann
DG went for the money (can't blame him & if that's the real reason) and Shazam was a temp from the start, so you can't really blame those on Omerta.


I did not blame them...

For me were the only admins I saw do something around here

Cleary they did best for them, and I hope they are in mutch better place ;)

Well... one think is certain, and Im telling you guys.....

.....Omerta wont last long, we can see an big fall of players, include me, I stop buying dcs for account and lackeys, I dont give a f*ck anymore!!

Less and less players online (Total: 378 this morning, I mean soon 2 or 3 people)
Less wars
Alot noob familys
Less real players


Omerta is clearly falling apart, admins only thing about money, and we got a bunch of free games mutch better then omerta, and we seeying alot good player leaving becouse like this, well SUCKS!

It's an shame what omerta become, clearly Brando is one of worse admins I ever seen, he only thinks about himself, I dont see improvements ingame, I only see bugged game.. hell even the best admins left like drunkgamer and shazann

Mark my words... omerta got no future..................... not like this.... people are starting to get tired, and soon... admins playing alone!!!

Lol look at Brando removing alot of posts at the forum of "Sluggs" and replying at ppl who made a bad post which have lackeys running:') Wtf does it matter if they have it running or not, some ppl like to check it out, some ppl think they just have to go with it anyways, and some already had credits so these are probably checking it out aswell. If you bring back KS (which would be awesome), bring back 2.1 and we all would be happy :w


Well he is accussing without data as his argument about votd corrupted by cheaters was without data. I didnt had lackeys on since tuesdaymorning and he says im a bullet lackey user. And closes down the newspost offc. And removal of critical posts without offensive language is insane.

Its called censorship and misinformation.


:w omerta

It's natural that people tried the new lackey when it was introduced so what Brando is saying when replying to the posts is just his way to make fun out of you.
Haven't you noticed that yet? How can you be so passive about it?

It's time we stop playing for a while to teach him some manners... I did that at least...

you people still playing omerta ? :"D

Idd Zzzz some ppl still are, allthough it are just ghost accounts :)

I've quit the game also a month ago and looking at it now i'm happy i did.
Omerta sucks big time atm. Admins just legalised scripting and they make cash out of it now :')

I hope a shitload of ppl retire so they can close the game or rollback to 2.1 orso :D
