at one time,there used to be two games like this, the rockstar game. carl's came for first and was the inspiration for music maven. i personally think doug, (music maven's version of carl) had the better game design. sorry,carl.you hopefully know i love you. it wasnt based off of points,but rather based on days of a month. no matter what, each real day equaled one game month. so you'd do like say: two weeks touring,one week practicing,one week hanging with groupies. it was quick,easy,and spiffy.
but maven was plagued with problems. we the players never knew that the game seemed to not really work if left unattended. it would hang on the nightly updates ALL the time. the mentioned forum thread is rather interesting in that respect. we just all assumed it was a random bug,not something that had to be constantly kept on top of. also, until reading this thread,i forgot about the cheating. a user named vils,who also had a presence in the rp section. over there the game and the rp section was closer together than here. but anyways,this user found out that you could really schedule as many days as you wanted in the month,the game would still accept it. i think this was the beginning of the the end. we never knew who hacked the game and locked doug out,but we liked to think it was vils. after being locked out of his creation,doug lost all interest and carl won the music online rpg war. and a war it was. you either were for therockstargame,or you were a mavenite. but in a good natured way.

i am a bit offended that skimming through that other forum post nobody mentioned me or erich and the draft dodgers.....

Cant believe this place is still going....hehe. Anywho....

I remember Maven like it was yesterday...well ok I exaggerate, its been a bloody long time since it existed but like you I preferred Maven's system to the points one on this game and found it a better game overall and though I more spectated the RP side of things as I only really started doing it late in the game before I shifted here and it always seemed so cool. And don't worry I do remember your name from there haha. I was actually a little intimidated at first as there were so many good RP's. That's not to crap on this one at all, but that period back in the mid to late 2OOO's as far as RP went in this game was pretty cool, back when it had a decent metal community within it, so vibrant and alive. Bikz (RIP), stjimmy, girlspice, regan, gregg, genocidal king, python, nimrod, asdf, I could go on but I wont, I'll just start rambling on and on haha.
The Black Gates- Progressive technical metal
The Infidels!- Retro doom funk grindcore
The Graveyard Sluts- dirty, slutty rawwwwk
Psycopathologist- old school death grind

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, it's just that your's is stupid.
