      The rebirth of Phoenix #3 was a rough path as hundreds of players struggled to get the highest level as fast as possible in order to increase their rewards, for the creation of the first pair of wings to the excitement of getting your first drop of Blue Feather and crafting the first level 2 pair of wings. There's an insane battles in Icarus, you can see even three parties on 1 spot, fighting day and night to get that Feather/Crest, so they could start gearing up for the war that was inevitable at the first Castle Siege that allowed access to many benefits: Hardcore stood their ground as their roaster seemed to be more disciplined against the opponents , but the war is far from over, we are at the end of the Break 2 and things will become harder for every one as the creation of level 3 wings will be on everyone's mind, but this is not gonna be an easy task, as players will have to work together more than ever to achieve higher power and to advance through the ranks as fast as possible. If you've worked hard so far you will need to work even harder now to stay on top, as many will rise after the stage came to an end, and to start leveling up again, unlocking new BOSSES & GEAR along with the spoils of war that will be granted upon only the most strongest and most organized guilds & parties. Time has frozen in this stage, as always, everything is vague, many warriors are fighting but most do not understand why? Why am I doing this? Why am I trying, why do I do( everything I do ) if I don't have a party or a guild ?? That's exactly what you guys have to do, to get together, to make a perm, to make friends, the rest comes naturally, the top guilds guests will take you inside if you're "decently dressed". It's all about teamwork, well dressing up your party members, help your guild, your 'mans', and go Forward in top!!! This server is the real play to win version of MU online, of course many of you will say that you cannot win if you do not pay but let's see the facts: top 30 players since beginning are hard workers so they invest more than "money", they invested time!!! Remember that and they are actually the 'kingpins' of this game, they do not need to buy VIP cause they win it on Castle Siege, they do not need to donate for credits because they are active, they farm items and sell if you ( the rest of you) won't wake up! Advices : make friends, get stable pt (turn it into main party), join a guild and fight for supremacy!!! The beginning of Phoenix#3 was hard, it was about the most active and most determined players to get to top, HARDCORE again smashed all rankings because of their core but it is not all about that, they gain respect and developed a Strategy based on the main core, then they absorbed former Squadrons Core (Zutto, Waste, Fane, Avicii and FKinGCunT) and imagine that they did that just few days before TwoCheeks and his team announced the coming back thing. Hardcore won easy the first CS that counts with 20170 points, Neutral, the guild with our legendary Moldavian warriors are followers with 4687 points, Nosgoth, the guild from which we all had higher expectations, a guild made by former Diamond Core, got only 3818 points, they seemed a little disorganized, but on Inception they proved to be formidable opponents for those in Hardcore, and last but not least Squadron, this legendary guild seems to miss the players who left for Hardcore, that magnificent party composed of Zutto, Waste, Fane, Avicii and FKinGCunT, they also have lost a little ground in this server start, but in the future we hope to see again that great guild that is fighting with real chances to conquer the crown.
    2. What Racism means for oldsquad community ? For us , in the real life means : Racism means any action, practice, or belief that reflects a worldview vision based on the racial concept, which in turn defines the belief that humans are divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called "races," and that there is a causal link between physical characteristics which define this concept and personality, intellectual capacity, moral abilities or other human behavioral characteristics and that certain races are by birth superior to others. This is the official definition of racism. Moldavian is not a race. Main races Europoid (white race) • Mongoloid (yellow race) • Negroid (black race) Why "silly moldavian" is a racism? And why on this topics : For gipsy = 1 warn https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/4070-arseling-racism/?tab=comments#comment-34539 And there are many more topics of "Racism" sorted with warns for calling brazilians =monkeys for telling nigger to a person on chat and so on Thanks,

      In this server more than 50% of the game is customized to give the best experience of MU, so there are some more things you need in order to be able to keep up with the competitive players. First and most importantly, to reach a competitive level you need a permanent party with trusted friends that you make in game or that you already knew and are willing to play at this level . Using TeamViewer so they can control your character when you are not at your PC by moving your character back to spot, buying potions, and taking them inside events. Before starting the server use the test server in order to decide what you want to do in terms of choosing a character and build , then you can do some testing with the mobs and spots. On every map you can see the spots by pressing TAB, for example:- In Lorencia you have 4 exits , each one with 4 spots down with spider, left with small bulls. Up with bigger bulls. right with cursed mages. In the left corner of the map, you have a giants "spot" that basically is split. After reaching level 15 , You can walk to Devias portal and move to harder spots. So in case your party starts with VIP and someone plays Dark Lord, the Dark Lord at the beginning has decent damage , which allows you to kill the giants and gain more experience than most people that start in spiders or bulls, so here you already have a big advantage, it's also possible to do it without Dark Lord, but Dark Lord is recommended if you are going for fast leveling. If you do not have Dark Lord, there is also one thing that you can do for a good start, which is a big secret on this server that you are about to know that will help you begin in the 1st hour of making party's etc. If you buy VIP right when you start at first hour of server when Monsters have not spawned yet , you can create a level 1 MG or DL and sell the weapon and shields that will give you 88 zen , you store than zen in vault and create more chars and sell more items until you get 4750zen, This will allow you to buy 50 small mana potions, 1pair of leather gloves for speed + armor, and 15 apples, this is a huge boost for first moment when server launches at the beginning, however if you start after the server already has opened it will be a lot easier to obtain zen from starting spots. Creating the perfect route:- This is the biggest part of being competitive , in test server you are allowed to level through the maps , check the damage from mobs with your defense and sets, you can create the perfect route from Lorencia to Devias at lvl 15 > in Devias you can skip weaker spots and move to the mid difficult mobs , the perfect ones are small yetis, and from there you can level to 20-25 for more stats, in order to be able to move to Elbeland 3. While you are doing this process , make sure you pick every item since Lorencia until small yetis, when you warp to Devias from the Lorencia gate there will be a shop in front of you where you can sell your items for some zen , or use the items that are upgrades for you if you can, and spend the zen on mana potions and apples so you can handle the yeti spots This is the early beginning test that will boost you very well, after Elbeland 3 you move to Dungeon 2-3 , from Dungeon you can move Atlans1 and so on, the only thing that you must do is just to test the spots to make sure where you need to go, check the damage you get from the monsters and keep changing your defense stats to see how much damage you get. For Example:- With 100 defense you will get hit by ~50 on Valkyries , if you add stats to get 150 defense you will get less damage, so the ideal is test every spot to know when you can move and stay safe, make sure you test every map so you know where and when to move always to the better spot and survive. This method of damage testing can also be tested for early goldens such as budge dragon, bok+1 goldens and bok+2 goldens , you can press H and click on invasion too see where they spawn. Test PVP builds according to every custom formula that is written on forum. For competition you need to have a strong knowledge of your character, so it's important to test different stats in duel with your friends, usually every char has 2-3 main builds, focusing more points in one stats than another, or going mixed stats. In some characters, for example such as BK , you can focus points on STR for full damage , and mixing Vit + Agi for survival, also another Tip for pvp is focusing Agi and mixing str+vit builds, energy is not a must, basically you can add less than 100 to have mana, because energy won't increase much dmg, energy on bk is a stat for castle siege if you want to play support and use Greater fortitude buff to grant more HP to your party. So this is just an example on how you need to understand forum's formulas about characters and focusing on one stat and mixing others and find the best build that suites your character to fight for goldens, fight for your spot , and fight for Castle Siege! Experience events:- So, this is what is going to take you on to the top dogs, Blood Castle and Devil Square, these two events give you the biggest boost on leveling. For Blood Castle on Phoenix edition the level requirements are these: - Level Entries:- BC 1: Level 200-239 BC 2: Level 240-279 BC 3: Level 280-309 BC 4: Level 310-339 BC 5: Level 340-359 BC 6: Level 360-379 BC 7: Level 380-400 BC 8: Level 400 + Q3 (ML ONLY). At some point you will be able to join BC with full party when you gather enough jewels of chaos, and you pick the materials needed to make 5 tickets. Make sure to add on your mu helper pick these materials: 'Blood Bone' and 'Scroll of Archangel'. You have max entries per day per each event, so in Blood Castle let's say you have 2 entries per day, there is another EXP BOOST event in morning and evening and this Exp boost is on the same hour as BC, so to take the most of this it is very helpful to join Blood Castle on this Exp event so you get a bigger boost on your level. The same thing goes for Devil Square - Level Entries: DS 1: Level 200-249 DS 2: Level 250-289 DS 3: Level 290-319 DS 4: Level 320-349 DS 5: Level 350-379 DS 6: Level 380-400 DS 7: Level 400 + Q3 (ML ONLY). In Devil Square you can't catch up with the Exp boost event, only on Sunday after Castle Siege (the bonus Exp event is later and will be mixed with the DS and you can boost your Exp more than normally, just like in Blood Castle). So overall you need to do these events daily to keep up on top ranking and keep the competitive level, if you missing the exp boost with Blood Castle or Devil Square is not a big deal , as long as you use your available entries every day, you will stay on top . Invasions:- This is where your competitive gameplay really starts, for bigger chances on this you need to hunt in group with your guild / main party to get those goldens and gear up yourself and your party. Hunting solo is a choice, but a risky one, cause you might end up alone vs more players, so the ideal is always hunting in group and using discord or some other voice program to help you organize yourselves. Make sure you participate in every invasion and try to kill the goldens to gear up faster and getting also items to sell for credits / jewels in web market or post. Keep track of the hours by pressing H so you can be aware of when it's starting in order to be ready to chase them! Game events, in forum details of Phoenix edition you can find every event of this server. This is a MUST read information that you need to be able to keep up with your own economy in game and progressing over time. Joining these events is very important due to the prizes that they reward you, and as always, join in party for better chances of winning them. Making 2nd accounts to play alt chars This is where you get a "second hand" in this game, especially in beginning to help you with ZEN, medals and hearts to gear up your main character, having an alt account is one of the biggest part to keep you in competitive level. Also, it is where you gather materials and general stuff to boost up your main as a second help. With alt accounts you can scout spots, scout goldens without leaving with your main from spot and losing Exp, everything that involves doing stuff out of spot, always use your alt so you don't lose spot EXP, and the risk of losing the spot with your main. Joining a guild or creating one If there are already top guilds and you feel that you are that competitive, talk to the guild master of the guild that you feel is competitive so you get a chance to prove yourself and make a difference! Or you can create your own legacy and become a guild master and make history!

      Castle siege gameplay and builds: As a defender guild, it is very important to Fix up the statues and gates, granting them more HP to gain more time to fight outside, protecting the statue and gates. The more time you gain by defending statue and gates, the more time it will take the enemy guild to get inside the castle, and every minute of it counts! Once the enemy gets inside, you should defend as best as possible, the ideal is to have at least 2 DL’s in each switch (or more if you have in guild) to pull the enemy that has the switch and to remove them and make them lose seconds+ the switch. You can also use SMs, MGs, BKs with weapon skill or lightning to move them OR you can use the weapon skills on enemy guild master to move him when he's not registering so he will have a hard time reaching the crown. To help with this moving strategy, you can use an elf whit ice arrow, with exact timing you can move the enemy stamper and the elf will ice arrow him preventing him to move, and kill the players around for points. The elf can be used for guild masters and it's also more effective to gain time and prevent him to get points and also more easy to get focused by your guild to kill him . Another thing that you can do is when you get the crown and the enemy position gets relocated and they have to walk over the whole map, it is the time to get your guild outside and fight the enemy, slowing them with ice skills , and using elf to ice arrow the guild master to stop him outside and gain more time, or even kill him with full focus. Attacking the castle: For a successful attack, you will need 2 SMs for stamp (tank) the switch, the build for SM stamp is the max full agi that the server lets you add, and then rest to vit. Considered the tank build, this build can be used for BK and DL also for stamp, having this, now you should focus on protecting them into maintaining the switch by killing players and getting points, or if they don't need help, help your GM at crown so he won't die and farm some kills for points also. So, as in defense and attack you will need consistent parties, which involves basically all builds out there, ENE BK for vit buff, EE for elf buffs of dmg and defense, SM pvp build for the ice storm in aoe dmg + the manashield for defense in party, ENE ref for the HP buffs, these buffs should be used on GM party or in strong PVP parties to secure more kills and keep them alive in longer fights. With all this done, it all comes down in the organization in guild and voice calls, this is the half way to go for a win, the other half will depend on the calls and gameplay of the all players. BattleMaster skills to stun the GM or enemy players around switch to kill them, and the assistant guild master that can TP to GM , are important skills to use along timing and organization for a fast strategy, killing enemies and gain points.

      PVP builds:- Blade Knight:- STR BK 2400stats:- STR - 1200~1400 AGI - 300~500 VIT - 500~700 ENE - 75 STR and VIT will depend on how you can survive so you can split the points between the both or just go full STR if you have a really decent set like HP+DD and good combo skills. AGI BK 2400stats:- STR - 500~600 max and if more needed just enough for a better weapon AGI - 1200~1400 VIT - 500~600 ENE - 75 Good survival build + speed for faster combos , also a strong build for PVP vs multiple enemies. Soul Master:- SM 2400stats Build#1 STR - for weapon AGI - 500~700 VIT - 300~500 ENE - 1100 or above For more survival and dmg. SM 2400stats Build#2 STR - for weapon AGI - 400~500 VIT - 300 ENE - 1100 or above These 2 builds will depend on your set, if you have DD+HP set you won't need to add much vitality because SM can kite enemy with teleport so you take advantage of it and deal dmg far away. Summoner:- STR - for weapon AGI - 500~900 VIT - 200~300 ENE - 1000~1200 Very dependable on items, the best would be the red Wing+DD+HP and 2 chrono items for double dmg along whit the Exc red wing for the bonus defense at +11+12+13,AGI or VIT can be reduced with 100 points, for going more glass cannon and adding more energy. Dark Lord:- STR - 800~1200 AGI - 600~800 VIT - 400~600 ENE - 50~100 for skills. Command - for horse or skill needed for PVP, the AGI + VIT will depend on set. Magic Gladiator:- STRMG 2800 stats STR - 1000~1500 AGI - 500~800 VIT - 400~600 ENE - 50~100 for skills OR a bit more for the defense % reduction Pro's:- The ideal here is trying to do a lot of damage, and also having some survival, if you want to really do a lot of damage ,take out some AGI and go more on STR. ENEMG 2800 stats STR - for weapon AGI - 400~700 VIT - 300~500 ENE - 1200~1600 Agility Elf:- AE 2400 stats Build#1 STR - 800 AGI - 1100 VIT - 500 ENE - base or 50 AE 2400 stats Build#1 STR - 300~500 AGI - 1500~1700 VIT - 400 ENE - base or 50 Will depend on what bows you have + set, agility elf whit more STR also help on dealing damage. Rage fighter:- STR - 500 AGI - set requirement or 300 VIT - 1500~2000 ENE - base or 132 to buff party if needed for survival. With a HP+Ref or DD+Ref or DD+HP or mixed, is a good build for PVP, more STR can be added for more damage but vitality must stay higher.

      2v2 3v3... 5v5 duel could be nice to have. no reward, no gamble, no anything. just for fun. I don't also mind unequal match (3v2, 3v5. etc) you don't gain anything from it anyway could also be a great way to practice team pvp how to implement: only party leader can invite and accept this type of duel PT-Leader-1 will enter "/ptduel <PT-Leader-2name>" Pt-Leader-2 will receive message and should type "/ptduel accept" to accept *note: this should only work if all party members are inside lorencia safe-zone (to prevent abuse) - round will restart after one party is wiped-out - dead members will become "ghost" (like spectator) until next round - same like duel, race to 10 round points "flies away"

      Character name : Arseling Suggestion type : All future content. Suggestion content : I've been playing this server for few years now, and i wanted to suggest something to spice up the new servers / databases. You know how many games have a seasonal theme , like diablo 3, tft, ect ? Well, maybe your server could try it out as well. Like, when a new database/ server opens , make some adjustments that impact the game, and gives it a new twist. For example, make Guild smaller, like 10-15 ppl, or instead of unlocking mg/rf/dl from lvl 1 with vip, add some hard ass quest in game, that you need to do first to gain access to those chars. (example, bring a quest npc, MG 2nd wings, RF cape and DL cape.) or making the maximum number of people in the party 3 . Or remove golden invasions, so only way to optain exe is from mob drops, Something crazy that gives the game a new breath of fresh air for a season or so. How the suggestion can bring value : It would make people adapt to a new way of playing the game, instead of the same old same old, ( yea, i know most ppl play mu because they want the same old) but this would give it a new fun twist without impacting most of the content. How would you personally implement your suggestion : i would make guilds smaller, the CS would be more fun, it would give teamwork more value, as you would help gear others in your guild more for CS, PvP, bosses, and such, instead of trading amongst just party of few friends in game like it is now. Dark Lords wouldn't be the only ones needing to be guild masters anymore, anyone could be a master now, giving it more fun and adaptive builds for CS. It doesnt have to be any of the suggestions above, just something that would freshen up an old game. Cheers.

      Hello, Earlier today we've been targeted by a pretty big DDoS attack (~110 Gbps) that succeeded to pass our firewall and disturbed our services. It's the first time since some long time ago when an attack succeeds to affect Gameservers machine as well, apart from website. While we're not 100% sure it is fixed yet, we are doing our best to prevent it from happening, though it may happen again until we acquire enough data to end it. We're sorry for the inconveniences & thanks for your patience!
    11. Reporter

      This interview is about Mu3rTe, one of the best players in our community and one of the most respected by most of the top players from our community, if you read past interviews you will find his name in the words of many top players interviewed from guilds who have been fighting each other for years. He is at this moment (the moment I started the interview) ranked no 1 on Soul Master reset rankings and Castle Siege Tank ranking, but what amazed me and made me want to take this interview is the fact that this player, on the last Inception, started very late, about 2 months from the start of the server and in about 1 month and a half he reached the 1st place. He is the only player I know who managed this performance, and I also want to mention that when he reached the 1st place, the top players from that data base had not given up playing actively yet. Reporter: "Hello, Mu3rTe, and welcome to The News Paper Hall of Fame ! Mu3rTe:" Hello, Reporter and all other players that are reading this " Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? " Mu3rte:"My name is Bogdan, I am 31 years old. I am currently working as a 2nd mate on commercial vessels, hoping for promotion soon. I don't have many hobbies, but I like listening to music and playing DOTA or Mu. So far my addiction to DOTA is over, huh, finally. All that remains is this MU. " Reporter:" Regarding this Covid 19 pandemic, did it affect you?" Mu3rTe:"I was really thinking it will, but it seems that I was lucky, my family and friends are safe, my arrival home wasn't delayed, so far so good. Still, I am disturbed to see the many people who don't follow minimum precautions. " Reporter : "When did you start to play Mu Online? " Mu3rTe:"It was so long ago :)) I would estimate 15 years ago, but can't say I played properly until just few years ago. Many long brakes, since I was passionate about DOTA. " Reporter : "How did you find OldSquad ?" Mu3rte:"Some of my old buddies told me about it, they were playing for 2-3 editions. " Reporter:" Can you name them?" Mu3rTe:" I can't remember 100% who, but it could've been either Psyke or Scheau, but once in game I found many familiar names." Reporter: "How much time do you spend/day playing mu OldSquad (average)? " Mu3rTe:"A lot :)) Roughly 12hrs a day. " Reporter:" Where does Mu3rTe nickname come from?" Mu3rTe:"Nothing special, mostly to represent that when I come, all the enemy troops will die " Reporter :"What nicknames did you have in the past?"" Mu3rTe:" Always Mu3rTe in Mu, I have various alts, most of the time Bobolina, b0gdaN." Reporter: "Do you have any VIP activated? What types of VIP did you use since the start and why?" Mu3rTe:"Currently using Dealer because of the extra entry, if you have resources, 1 extra entry makes a huge difference, otherwise Hunter is better. In the first 2 weeks we had Hunter because lacking of the jewel of chaos. Both VIPs are important if you wanna be in top and to maintain there, the competition is tough, ok, maybe not so hard... " Reporter: " How did you and your perma manage to get in top since day one ? Can you reveal us "the secret"? " Mu3rTe:"I can't say that there is a secret, they just thought about the best strategy, meaning best kill speed and survivability, therefor 3 MGs. They wished I was a MG also but that can't happen :)) Since it's early game, it is obvious that who is more active gets the benefit. More than this, you must have a plan, if you have spare time you could check on test server that was opened early, monster's lvl, monster numbers, some spots have bad spawns, many small details that counts in early. The problem is when you want to stay in top, check where enemies are farming, what items they have, and how lucky you are to get timely spells. You could sell a fire burst with 1k credits.. outrageous but still some people did it Whatever mechanics you may know, unless you test them, they could be different, since OldSquad is a hard-worked custom server and keeps improving. Other than all this, there must be a good atmosphere within the party, and if possible for them to be as dedicated as you, otherwise it will get stressful, and unhealthy environment. Another thing that propelled us further than any other time, it is because of the pull we made (not possible anymore), players cried about, complained about, ADMIN satisfied them. It was not a special thing to do, just you had to move your mouse, but I guess its easier to look at the screen and complain " Reporter:" What about HoF rankings, how come that you got only 1 trophy so far (on this data base)? Is it that hard? " Mu3rTe:"I never cared about HoF, they just came one after the other. SM it is not a character that shines early, and it's very item dependent if you wanna have impact in HoF. So far it's hard because of the characters that get extra points, 220 points per reset is huge early, but no worries " Reporter :"Since you are top no. 1 Soul Master player on reset rankings, and you were tank number 1 until last week, can you reveal us a few tips about Soul Master pvp build ? Can you reveal your stats ? It is early yet on this data base, but where should a newbie add ML points after he finishes quest lvl 3? " Mu3rTe:"This is to early to tell, all builds have weaknesses. It is not a fixed point for which you should aim, don't have many pvp performances except CC, but I can say that if you don't make lots of hp it is quite pointless. More important than this, you should focus on getting more resets so you can be more versatile without losing too many things early. ML is same based on what is required for your party during exp or during CS. All characters evolves and shines during different stages of the game, it is important to take full advantages of the situation. Myself I don't prefer lots of HP, I am an aggressive type therefore energy and agility. In castle siege it's a different story, because SM is so bad early compared to others, there are not too many options than to go for tanky stats so you can get full advantage of the characters. For now I am no1 at CS tank because ppl were afraid to focus me, not because I was immortal :)))) " Reporter :"What advice would you give to a player playing on this server for the first time, what should he do to get to the top places? How should he build stats on Soul Master for pvm ?" Mu3rTe:"To reach the top from first time you need a strong and active party. Make all events daily, BC and DS are very important to maintain chaos balance early, always save entry for bonus time. Calculate and evaluate spots frequently, choose your best exp. If you wanna be PVM, you must rely on your party for the first few resets. Build plenty agi and some VIT for survivability, than top up energy. It is quite bad for hunting goldens early game " Reporter :"What characters do you think are the best for PvP ? And for PVM ? Mu3rTe:" Overall PvP, considering later stage of the game, vitRF is the one giving me troubles and the most easy to play I could say. There are better chars, yes, BK, SUMM but they require little more skill. PVM It's another story and complex based on your playin style. Overall spot wise eMG is the choice." Reporter: "Speaking of permanent party... Can you tell us a few words about the importance of a permanent party on OldSquad, and a short story about how you and your permanent mates got together? Is this the best permanent party you ever had?" Mu3rTe:" Perma party is important if you wanna enjoy the game to the fullest, and here I mean participating to Castle Siege. Without a perma party is is more challenging to climb the ladder and collecting items specially now when you can only have 2 accounts per pc. It is not impossible if you wanna play alone, sometimes it can be more relaxing. To have a perma party many times can be challenging, unwanted and puerile dramas, stress and being on the edge... so don't forget that this is a game, we play for pleasure not to fuck our brains for crap. About my party, I was asked by mafy if I wanna play this edition, so here I am:) they have a bigger history behind, I only know mafy, Redbull and Russu, we played sometimes. I can't say that it's the best party I ever had, but so far it's the most stable, yes, some drama from time to time, but we are still the 5 people from the beginning, that is an achievement so far " Reporter: " You are now a Hardcore member but some "voices" tell me that in past you were a Squadron and a GROM member, is it right ? " Mu3rTe:"Yes, I was in Squadron before, but GROM, no, very briefly 1-2 weeks at some point " Reporter : "Why did you left those two great guilds? What happened? " Mu3rte:" Grom nothing to say about, I was at some point I even forgot the reason, usually when I need to go for work, my char could get in the hand of other people, I left my account few times and some other got it, so maybe was one of those times.. About Squadron, last edition of inception was very imbalanced, agiRF was out of proportion, so I decided I should join the opposition in order to make things little more challenging, nothing hidden behind. " Reporter: " Do you think that Hardcore is invincible this data base ? Until now your guild has 4 wins in a row,, who is leading Hardcore during CS? " Mu3rTe:"I don't believe in concept of "invincibility" , I do believe in team play, active members and organization. As long those are here, everything is possible. Anyhow, the way the server is set-up, you can't win forever, I am sure we will lose at some point and there is no shame in losing, it is important to see how to move on. During CS, all suggestions are open if we could benefit from them, but in order to not make confusion, it is better if just some people speak. Roles are divided beforehand, and we are adjusting according to situations. Still it's Mu.. it's not some badass strategy game once the basics are learned, the winners are those who execute better. " Reporter :" There are rumors that Diamond helped HARCORE two weeks ago on CS, are they true ? " Mu3rTe:"I don't know who started rumors about this thing, but I am happy that there is more activity in CS, this way it is more challenging, from my knowledge, nobody from Hardcore asked any1 to do something for us, and I congratulate DIAMOND for doing their best and playing fair and square." Reporter:" On the last Inception Data Base, you started 2 months after its start and in about a month you reached top number one ranking, there are rumors that you didn't even have a permanent party when you started playing! How did you manage to get this performance? I guess a lot of people want to hear the full story from beginning to end " Mu3rTe:"Well, thanks to the system ADMIN designed, to catch up is so much easy. When all people have resets and almost instakill in DS and BC, even if you start late, build some tanky stats so you won't die and have full benefits from it. When people are 10-15 rr, you can make reset in devil square cause of the bonus exp. It was hard at beginning, you will die on all spots, but if you are active and come back, exp is easy also, when you start later, many party are disbanded so you can fill some places. For me, after 2 or 3 rr I joined Chukundah's party and I was dying on spot many times in karutan2, went bc6 few times got 1 hit, but didn't stop, perseverance and being active helps a lot. Also Gaffney changed his character to BK and he gave me his Sphinx set, it did help a lot, I can't say I was all alone. Later on due to imbalanced guild powers, I joined HARDCORE with mafy, we gathered some players from broken parties, some of them were much higher in reset than me, but exp was going smooth. Once I got some resets, I went full dmg build, and destroyed all events not many contesters in BC DS, some tried but... and this was it.. 2 months playing non stop basically :))" Reporter: "What do you think about last Castle Siege? How was the atmosphere in Hardcore? What do you think about Purge reconstruction? What about the evolution of Diamond?" Mu3rTe : "Last CS was in top 10 Castle Sieges that I played, I am happy that more guilds decided to come, the fight for switches was very intense. We had some advantages, Diamond GM and his party was below 300 lvl, but they did a great job. The atmosphere in guild is as good as always, we were excited to play again, we had some missing key persons also, mafy, but we did good. I don't know about Purge, it just seems a different name, same people, maybe they will manage to refresh themselves, I had bigger expectations. About Diamond they look promising steadily improving, each CS having bigger impact, they hold the crown for quite a while and had huge impact on switches, I hope they will maintain integrity and play the way they did so far." Reporter : " Do you read the News Paper ? " Mu3rTe:"Yes I read the News Paper, some articles are very entertaining but got to admit, the dramas collects more views." Reporter : " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think that the Castle is Cursed? " Mu3rTe:" I do not believe in superstitions, but I do think that your way of thinking can affect your lifestyle. I sometimes I am wondering, how can so big dramas happen, when in fact it was just some crap. Mainly the curse comes from people's mentality. " Reporter : " Did you see what happened to the guilds that held the castle? If it is not the "curse" (which can be defined by greed, selfishness and pride), what could it be to destroy the most of the guilds in that way?" Mu3rTe:"From what I notice, other than those 3 you just mentioned, there comes also the real life problems, that affects our mood and lets say our sensitivity. One more could be that the problem are not addressed in a calmly manner and solutions are very often overlooked. People should see beyond problems, problems appear every day, but we have to pass over. If somehow MU creates problems for your life, better make some changes. " Reporter :"What do you suggest to improve on NewsPaper ?" Mu3rTe:"Fake news seems to be the key to our society, so maybe make more of those :)) " Reporter: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you like this data base ?" Mu3rTe:"Many changes, many improvements, I guess it should be a 9 " Reporter: " What would you change to this server? What do you expect from the following servers?" Mu3rTe:"So far many changes satisfied my needs, at the moment all looks good. I don't have expectations, I just take what it is and make best from it. " Reporter:" Two guys from your permanent party are members of the council, what do you think about this project? Do you, mafy and Endorphin talk about council often?" Mu3rte:"The project is very good and the reasons behind are on point. We don't speak too much, we just have a laugh from time to time, when some councilors are frustrated when something is wrong just for personal reasons. " Reporter: "There are some rumors on the server that say VIP affects the concept of "play-to-win gameplay", what do you think of these rumors? Is a player who is active able reach the top without donating? Do you and your party mates donate/donated? " Mu3rTe:" I like it that it keeps improving, and slowly slowly getting to that point as a "play to win". Still, VIP affects a lot, but why I like this server is it that you can farm your credits for VIP quite easy if you are active. Myself, as a player who never donated, I am the proof that you can be top without donating. This edition maybe, my party donated for me at the first week so I wont drag them back lucky me. From what I know, they only donated first week " Reporter: "I have 5 challenges for you, do you accept them? " Mu3rTe:"Yes, go ahead " Reporter :"Challenge no 1: I need the names of the 3 players you respect the most on OldSquad and the names of the 3 you dislike the most on OldSquad." Mu3rTe:" mafy, Makiavelli, no third one I dont have dislikes, maybe from time to time some personal vendettas. " Reporter: " Challenge no 2: Tell us 3 things you like most about our staff team, and 3 things you don't like about them!" Mu3rTe:" I like ADMIN cause he tries to improve this game, Gion and Reporter doing good job, nothing else. I dislike that Gion is always in a hurry, sometimes he doesn't have time to give rewards " Reporter:" Challenge no 3: Tell us 3 things you would improve on our server and top 3 things you like the most" Mu3rTe:"I like the stage system the most, giving a balance sentiment so therefore CS are more enjoyable, various times I played on other servers there was a huge discrepancy. I like the CS system, this way you can enjoy 2 hours rather than 5 ending minutes. I like the automated system for events giving a fair chance for all players. I can't say I would improve many other things, since ADMIN is doing a great job implementing our thoughts and ideas. He comes with great ideas also. " Reporter: "Challenge no 4: Due to the fact that you were a member of the most important guilds on this server, call us in order which are the 3 strongest guilds you have been in, with details about each one, of course." Mu3rTe:"Well, I would say that Squadron was the strongest guild overall, accumulating all past editions I played. I played there also, but it was a grim atmosphere, many afk times, but they were gathering people to come play at CS. Hardcore comes second, being a relatively fresh guild, I do like that people are active, hunting and doing events, and you can always find somebody to chat if you want. On third place, might be GROM but they were shady, even resorting to cheats, can't say much otherwise. " Reporter:" Challenge no5 :I need you to share with us a "dirty" secret, a shameful and funny incident that happened to you playing MuOldSquad." Mu3rTe:"For sure there are many as such, need to jog my memory here I could say the most funny was, When I went in vacation, my party wanted to surprise me and lvl up my w3 wings to +13 or something, unfortunately, Makiavelli forgot to put talisman... and so I was without wings:)) spent like 1 more month without, trying to find w3 +lk. " Reporter:" Thank you very much for time and patience, I wish you GL on all your plans!" Mu3rte:"Without fun there is no sense of playing it ! GL to you, Reporter! " This was Mu3rTe's Interview, one of the best players from our community, I am happy to finally do this interview because I wanted to take it since last year !
    12. Hello OldSquaders, This month we're celebrating 5 YEARS since OldSquad was born! 5 years of ups and downs, 5 years of hard work & dedication, 5 years of MU at the highest possible level in terms of competition, 5 years of both failures and successes, 5 years of dramas and beautiful stories. Damn, looking behind it's been hella' fun journey, a hard one but a fun one. We would like to thank you once again for choosing us as the entertainment provider and sticking with us for such a long time! Hats down! 5 years of epicness deserves an ... epic gift! So ladies and gentleman, we're releasing one of the most complex, interesting & unique PvP events in the entire MU Community: Arena Tournament V2! General Info Arena Tournament features 7 different rounds, each round taking place 1 time per week, at 20:30 19:45 Server Time. There are 3 different Event Types: LMS - Last Man Standing, KotH - King of the Hill & LL - Last Laugh. Both LMS & KotH have 3 different Specials, more info above. In order to register to Arena Tournament you must write /joinarena when the event is popping (and before it gets closed). After event is closed, it will start in 1 minute. You can't attack other players before the event does start. Maximum 60 slots (LMS) / 40 slots (KotH) / 34 slots (LL). Duration is 15 minutes for LMS/KotH. No maximum duration for LL. You can't join while being in a party. If you join a party anytime during the event both chars will be disqualified from the tournament and moved out. You can't join the event with antidotes / sd pots. Any consumables buff (bless/soul pots, doppel scrolls, halloween, etc.) are deleted every second during tournament. You get a full clear off existing buffs when you enter the tournament. You can't move items (for example from store) during tournament. You are Muted during tournament. You can't drop items during tournament. You can't move to other maps during tournament. You get PK Stage 2 during tournament (to use only right click to attack, without CTRL). At the end of tournament you get back to your previous pk level / pk kills / pk timer. Info about LMS (Last Man Standing) Schedule for Last Man Standing is the following: Monday - LMS Special 1. Wednesday - LMS Special 2. Friday - LMS Special 3. Objective is to kill others while surviving. Every character does have 5 lives when they join. Dying will remove 1 life and will notice you the lives left. When lives are over, you'll be removed from the event & moved out. A character can only remove 2 lives from another character. After that, he no longer can attack that character BUT the other character can attack him (for at least 2 lives). Winners are the last 5 characters that remains alive. If the event time is over and there are more than 5 characters left alive, there will be a TOP5 made by Lives taken and then by lives that you had left. So if 2 characters have the same amount of lives taken at 5th and 6th position, the one with more personal lives left will take the 5th place, and so on. Reward for winning a LMS Event is the access to Sunday's round (where the real rewards are given, for everyone). If you win any of the LMS rounds you can't join other tournaments until Sunday. Specials: Special 1: Free For All, normal fight with characters exactly as they are. Special 2: Free For All, normal fight with ALL CHARACTERS receiving reset stats & points for 20 RESETS - more chances for lower players. Special 3: Class-Only fight, players can only fight with characters with the same class like them, during the Event, with characters exactly as they are. Note: During the Special 3, the limit of 2 lives taken is valid only if there are > 4 players left from the same class. If there are < 5 players left from the same class you can take any amount of lives from characters. Note2: Also on Special 3 there is only 1 winner from each class (last one standing), so total of 7 winners. Info about KotH (King of the Hill) Schedule for King of the Hill is the following: Tuesday - KotH Special 3. Thursday - KotH Special 2. Saturday - KotH Special 1. Objective is to farm as many Points as possible. Every character starts with 0 Points. Every time a character dies he will lose 4 points (unless the points are 0 anyway). Killing another character will give you 10 points. The 2nd time you kill the same character you will earn 9 points, 3rd time 8 points, and so on until you'll get only 2 points for killing the same character (and the value will stay at 2 points, no longer decreasing). After 15 minutes, the TOP5 characters with the most points are considered the winners. If there are more people with same points like the 5th player, the winner will be picked randomly. Reward for winning a KotH Event is the access to Sunday's round (where the real rewards are given, for everyone). Specials: Special 1: Free For All, normal fight with characters exactly as they are. Special 2: Free For All, normal fight with ALL CHARACTERS receiving reset stats & points for 20 RESETS - more chances for lower players. Special 3: Class-Only fight, players can only fight with characters with the same class like them, during the Event, with characters exactly as they are. Note: Also on Special 3 there is only 1 winner from each class (the one with highest points at the end), so total of 7 winners. Info about LL (Last Laugh) Last Laugh is the final Tournament, where the prizes from the week are also given. Last Laugh is held on Sunday. Only winners of KotH & LMS from that week can join the Last Laugh. So maximum players on Last Laugh is 34. If you have lower resets than the highest reset player from the LL, you will receive extra stat points to add for the tournament based on the difference of resets between you and highest reset player and also based on your class. The points are added when the Arena is closed, so you have 1 minute to use them. There is no set duration for the LL but there are 3 rounds: Round1: LMS Round During this round you need to eliminate players while surviving. The round is over when there are x amount of players left in the Tournament, as following: If there are more than 30 participants, Round1 is over when there are 20 players left. If there are more than 26 participants, Round1 is over when there are 18 players left. If there are more than 22 participants, Round1 is over when there are 16 players left. If there are more than 18 participants, Round1 is over when there are 14 players left. If there are more than 14 participants, Round1 is over when there are 12 players left. If there are more than 11 participants, Round1 is over when there are 10 players left. If there are more than 8 participants, Round1 is over when there are 8 players left. All LMS rules are applied. Round2: KotH Round During this round you need to farm as many Points as possible in 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, TOP8 characters with most Points will be qualified for last round (3), rest of players will be eliminated. Round3: Last Laugh - Final Round A virtual bracket will be generated for the 8 players left, it will be based on the Points gathered during round 2 as following: TOP1 points will play vs TOP8 points. TOP3 points will play vs TOP6 points. TOP4 points will play vs TOP5 points. TOP2 points will play vs TOP7 points. Then each character will be moved to a different Arena cage where the matches are being played. In cages you are playing 1v1 with your opponent. Both chars start "chained" and game is starting in 5 seconds. The first character to kill the other for 2 times will advance in the bracket (Best of 3). You do receive a clear of all buffs/effects after a kill and you start from different corners again. SD is not restored during the match. After winning a match you advance in bracket and either wait or face your next opponent from Winner bracket. After winning/losing a game you will be redirected to a new cage. After each finished game, if your SD is not full, you will receive a Complex Potion that you can use in first 5 seconds of the next game, to restore your SD to full. You need to be fast! Players that lose in the Winner bracket are being sent into Loser bracket where they face other losers. Games on Loser bracket are the same as on Winner bracket (Best of 3). If you lose a game on Loser bracket you are eliminated from Tournament, if you win you advance in Loser bracket up until Grand Finals. Grand Finals are BO5 (Best of 5). Arena Tournament V2 will be released on Sunday night, and there will be 1 week of BETA period. During BETA there will be no rewards for winning, instead, you will get 2x Jewel of Chaos for each REPORTED, CONFIRMED & FIXABLE BUG you encounter during the week. So try your best to bug the Event! Note: We do expect some problems during BETA, so take it with a grain of salt. Also we're waiting any suggestions / feedback related to it as you play & test it. #MakeMUGreatAgain!

      GUILD WAR PROPOSAL yamete Server Guild master can declare war againts other guild. think of it like duel gamble system. but larger scale Will add spice to guild PVP and players would have to think very carefully which guild to join Mechanics *new feature - Guild treasure - GM can set Mandatory/Optional collection of Credits/Jewels/Zen (TAX) Guild master can start war with other guild. There will be 2 types of war, Ordinary Guild War (OGW) & Gambled Guild War (GGW) Gambled Guild War (GGW) - both GM must agree to start war - GM can gamble items in Guild treasure - both GM must agree on duration of war 1-5days - can only have 1 active GGW at a time - winner by point system (get 2x points on last hour/s of war) - The point system could be like gens (point per minutes of active player + points per pk) Ordinary Guild War (OGW) - GM can declare war on other Guild without agreement. Guild members in OGW can pk enemy guild members without getting pk status. This can increase guild's reputation ("don't mess with this guild" status) and get high demand of players who would like to join the guild while GM can demand high TAX for it. - both GM must agree to end war - maximum war duration is 5 days - Can't declare OGW on same guild consecutively, must wait 7 days to start war on same guild. *note: GM can set reward for active members (point system) I know this is a lot of work. and might ruin the server but I think would be interesting to see feel free to criticize and make suggestions
    14. Reporter

      Helloooo, OldSquad Community! This is an interview I've been wanting to take for a very long time, it's an interview with my editor, can you believe it? What Reporter will interview his own editor ? Well, on OldSquad everything is possible and I'm glad to have this privilege (I just want you to know that this interview is exclusive and confidential, so if you read it don't tell anyone, please). I want to share my first memory I have with this player / judge / event maker, and more recently, since Admin decided to leave the "football field" and just get into the coach's shoes, he's not that old but it's like Murinho! So Gion isn't just my editor, he's been the chief of staff in the game for a few months. Uh, Oh, again I got off topic, well, let's go back to my previously idea, I was a new player on OldSquad, I didn't know anyone and I see an Admin online -> Gion, I start talking to him and he's not on any pedestal, he talks to me easily, as if he was a simple player, so I'm amazed: a server populated, hard to play with admins who don't think they are gods? WTF? Something is wrong, he is always naughty, he has a sense of humor and he is always active, and I changed my mind instantly about this server, before I had tried many servers, so boring, those with high exp were interesting for a few days but this one at first view looks like it will last at least for few weeks, so I chose to stay and play here, I could write novels but let's limit ourselves to the interview of this editor of mine: Reporter: "Hello, Gion, and welcome to the NewsPaper Hall of Fame ! " Gion:"Hello, sir! I am glad that you have introduced me as well, it is a honor for me." Reporter : " Can you, please, give us a description of yourself? Name, age, occupation, hobbies, etc. ? " Gion:"My name is Rares, with the last 's' being read as 'sh', some Romanian thing. I am 23, and currently I study telecommunications, and you know , I can say that I also study MU Online, by any means. Mu happens to be also a hobby of mine, alongside music and things related to sounds/comms engineering." Reporter:" Where does Gion nickname come from?" Gion: "It was kinda random, my idea at the moment of creation(2014-2015) was that I wanted to use a common name, but as it is written in Romanian, so the common name was 'Ion' -> 'John' into English, and then 'Gion', as we, Romanians, write it. " Reporter: "Tell us the story about how you got to play this game and how you got to be the chief of staff on one of the only server of MU Online which promises months of play, not just days / weeks? " Gion: "Well, since me and ADMIN were classmates since the 1st grade, we have a long story together. Long story short, ADMIN introduced me to this game about 11-12 years ago, if I am not wrong, since then we played together a lot, then, one day ADMIN came up with the idea that if we don't find a server for our expectations(and believe me, we didn't), we have to build one." Reporter: " Have you ever been a player on MuOldSquad?" Gion: "Yessir, on different ocassions." Reporter :"How did you manage to get the Admin to trust you? (of course we need a story)" Gion: "I'm glad that you asked. As I said, ADMIN came up with the idea that we have to build this server. At the beginning he created the server on his own, with us, the real-life friends, being just players and only sometimes helping with small things, like doing an event for the players that were active at that moment, or things like these. He basically started everything on his own, and then, after the work volume has increased he reached me, because, I guess, he knew that I enjoy this game like .. a lot." Reporter : "How did you both come to the conclusion that this server needs a NewsPaper? Whose idea was it?" Gion: " We thought about it because looking at how nice and good the players are evolving around, like there are lots of unexpected situations, 500 IQ plays, etc that must be seen by everyone, so we wanted our players to feel that what they do will be acknowledged. We are creating, together, the History of OldSquad, The MU Continent of Legend, exactly as you say, with a lot of work, dedication and 'blood' from the deadly battles. " Reporter: "Does Admin pay you real money for the work you do??" Gion: " Since we are all doing this out of passion, I think that money talks are a bit offtopic. " Reporter: "What are your responsibilities, is this like a part-time job or maybe more like a full-time?" Gion: "My responsibilities, and there is only one, in my opinion, is to make sure that everyone has a good time and a fair shot in the competitions, whatever they are." Reporter: " What makes you keep doing the job you do?" Gion: "As I said, I consider myself a student in MU Online by any means - technical, social, I even learnt how to manage a situation where there are some misunderstandings. I also get to know a lot of new people. It's basically you, the whole community, that keeps me doing it." Reporter : "Many times when I had the opportunity to talk to you, you were tempered regardless of the situation, ... where do you got so much patience from? How do you succeed, you and Admin have such different temperaments and yet you are best friends (it seems to me). What is your explanation? " Gion: " I think that knowing each other for so much time and playing together got us into having the same mentality and values, regarding this game. Also in real-life we are different but still best friends because even we have different personalities, knowing each other helps us to get the best out of each one. It is like an out-of-the-box experience, in terms of MU Online, me and ADMIN are the same person, same thoughts, like a multi-core processor, but it is still one piece." Reporter : " Is it hard to do what you do? Give us some examples of difficult moments you have faced since you were part of the staff" Gion: "It is not hard, not for me, the guy who always looked up to do something like this, I had previous experiences as a server administrator before, and not only MU. I cannot say that it is 'hard', it might be mind challenging, but I would not label it as 'hard'. You asked for an example: It was a nice evening of Phoenix, I was hanging around the server, just doing random things like answering PMs, etc, and while I was walking around the maps, I get into Relics, pass the safe zone, and there were some players apparently fighting. I pass them by a few steps and then I stop. By the time, one of the teams killed the other one, I think that they were organized in teams, and one of the guys there came to me and started attacking me (ofc, he was not really attacking me because the GM char has immunity), but I have answered with one shot that killed that guy, because why not. What came after this deserves to get in a novel: his whole guild came back and started to accuse me that I help the other team. They even started to cry on global chat, etc. The situation was more complicated than what I have exposed, but let's not concentrate on it, since you got the main point out of it. Since then I choose very carefully how to interact with the players. Btw, I don't even remember the names of those players, neither for the 'criers' nor for the team that 'I was helping', so you can understand my huge interest to kill some random player in a random map. " Reporter : "I guess the work you do here on the game has a lot of challenges that keep you connected to the game, reveal to us the most intense challenges you have had lately" Gion: "The most intense challenge around is to maintain the server and come up with fresh stuff, but with the help of ADMIN and the Council, I hope that we are managing this." Reporter:" Every time a new database is released on OldSquad, a lot of new things appear, where do they come from?" Gion: "Most of the things come from, obviously, the previous experience. That's why each of our new version is breaking a past record. We basically improve the game constantly, as I said, as a team." Reporter: "One of your many new projects is The Council, what do you think about this project, does it bring the expected results? Are these Council members active? Give us three examples of requests / discussions between staff and board members that have added value to the gameplay. " Gion: "I think that this idea is the next step towards total democracy in MU, since we try to have a council member from 'each side' of the server. We do not discuss about Council in terms of activity, since there in only one channel where we debate the upcoming things, vote, suggest. I think that in this way we can hear you, the players, easier. I cannot name specific things, because we try to discuss everything there." Reporter: "Have you ever played a normal character while being part of the staff?" Gion: "Yes." Reporter: "What happened to Grom and DEADCATS, why were they banned and what is your opinion about ADMIN refusing to let them play for so long?" Gion: "I think that when they were banned I was only the Event Manager, so I was not really into them things at that moment. But I am sure that they lost their right to be around here for a reason, because, as you know, we are giving paroles sometimes." Reporter: " Do you believe in superstitions? Do you think the Castle is Cursed?" Gion: " I do believe in energies which may be translated into curses, so yes, I can say that I believe in curses." Reporter :" Because you should already know what's next, It's time for challenges, and I've prepared five for you, do you accept them?" Gion: " All of them, ese". Reporter:" Challenge no 1: Tell us the funniest two memories related to MU online, one in which you felt ashamed of what you did and one in which someone else did something funny!" Gion: " The funniest one , and I think that ADMIN can agree, was one time, long ago, when me and ADMIN were playing together on a server on which there was a special Elves' spot in Arena, with its entrance blocked, like when you tried to pass through it and you were not an elf, it pushed you back. Since the spot was only for Elves, any other character reported on that spot was getting one to three days ban , I don't remember for sure, but at least one day, and it was like this because that pushing entrance could've been abused with SM's teleport (as they knew until then, and they still don't know ^^). So I got into an argument at school with ADMIN which led us into a minor beef. I want to mention that at that moment ADMIN had a DL and he was ahead of me with a couple of resets, and it is obvious that when we got home after school, ADMIN was PKing me non-stop, chasing me everywhere, not letting me to do shit. I was mad as fuck, so later that night, when ADMIN went to sleep, I switched to my ~273 level BK, whose name ADMIN remembers as it was yesterday ^^, and started to move ADMIN from a regular spot towards the entrance of that Elves' spot, having in mind to sabotage him somehow, I was thinking to report him that he was trying to kill mobs from the outside of the spot/yard. But when I got there, I tried to do the impossible: I have skilled ADMIN until I pushed him THROUGH that gate. It was a premiere, and the last time when that happened. Now I had him pinned: he was inside the spot, still attacking, because at that time we used own clickers, but now I had to report him without anyone to notice my scam. I created another forum account and reported ADMIN. He tried to defend himself, he even told the staff that it was me, because he knew my alt, but no one believed so ADMIN ended up being banned and the case was closed. This is also the situation that I feel ashamed for, because that was simply not a fair win. But it was a win tho ^^^" Reporter:" Challenge no 2: Tell us about one of the moments when you and Admin quarreled, with details of course, and how you managed to get over ! " Gion: " We do not argue over decisions here, on MU, because we take a decision by evaluating it from all points of view. But I've just answered previously to this one^^." Reporter:" Challenge no 3: Tell us the three biggest guilds that have ever played on the server (in your opinion), and name 5 players you liked, with reasons of course." Gion: " The best three guilds, in terms of gameplay: (the order does not matter) Hardcore, Squadron, and a Greek guild from the 2019 Phoenix, I don't remember the name well. Also, I cannot name certain players, but I want to shoutout ADMIN, Mitsakos, Nina, also shoutout to Reporter and Wanheda, players which I will never forget. The list continues, but you asked for 5 namez." Reporter:" Challenge no 4: What has been your biggest disappointment since joining OldSquad? " Gion: " My biggest disappointment is that the competition is not as it should be. Take for example the current case: first party from Inception is way ahead of the others. How is this possible? And I even hear guys complaining about it. How can you? How could they get so far while the other parties were killing them and stealing their mob's kills? Oooh, because no one PKed them, no one did what they did (party composition, decisions). That's why I am disappointed." Reporter:" Challenge no 5: I know that being part of the staff and always having the need to make decisions, sometimes they can be wrong. Describe the moment when you made such a decision that you regretted and if you did anything to fix that decision." Gion: " When we realize that we made a wrong decision we simply admit it and change it asap." Reporter:" Thank you very much for your honest answers, keep up the good work you do!" Gion: " Thank you for having me, it was a pleasure ! Cheers ! " This was the interview of Gion, a young man, even though he is my editor, I learned a lot from him (despite the age difference between us) a man who brings great value to this community, yes, I know what's next to say, that the Reporter kisses his ass, well due to the fact that he earned my respect, I will make this sacrifice although (speaking only between us) I don't think he likes that :). I hope him to continue the work he does, and that together with Admin to take this server to higher levels, still giving their best!
    15. Hello, OldSquaders ! We are glad to introduce you to a brand new group on forum, the Council group ! This group is created in order for the players to communicate with the staff easier. Our aim is to make the Council to represent the players, facilitating the feedback, the suggestions, the bug reports, basically everything. Having lots of online players can create confusion between the staff and the players, due to the repetitive reports, or repetitive requests for some changes (which are not that healthy for the community as a whole, but are still requested by some of the players that didn't know that the case was already presented and/or discussed). In this way we will try to sync the big decisions according to our players. Some "requirements" / details: Council group - Special forum group & discord place where chosen players can communicate easier with the staff and represent the players from the community. - Legends does have priority but not a guaranteed spot. - Only accepting people that we enjoyed speaking with or we like their character. - We need at least 1 person from each big guild from server. - 1-2 newbies (playing 1st time on our community). - Players that had contribution during these years. - Maximum of 12-15 players, for now. - No rewards but also no responsibilities, only participating when they what on discussions or bringing an opinion to others suggestions/reports/etc. - People totally inactive from the group will be removed & replaced. - People who want to join the council must send us details via Messenger to our Facebook page, OldSquad Community, and we'll select from them as well as inviting ourselves the good guys, if they don't 'apply. We hope that you will enjoy this ! Best regards, OldSquad Team
    16. Hello, Today at around 17:00 (Server Time) we'll have a full maintenance on our systems to prepare for the new launch. Phoenix, Inception's Test-Server & Website will be offline for ~5-25 minutes. Cheers.

      hello I have one stupid question .. from where i can take scroll of evil spirit ... 3 days I fight in lost tower but no scroll drop yet ..
    18. Hello, As you may have noticed already, we've reworked the forum structure in order to spread the information more accurately as well as improving the ways of handling suggestions/reports. We've also archived all the topics older than 1-1.5 years old across all sections. All sections can now be seen by both guests and members. Important changes: We're trying to revive the guides section with fresh content, so starting from our next edition, any good & accepted guide can grant you 100~300 credits. Note: New guides must be manually accepted by staff. More info: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3949-submitting-a-guide Now Suggestions must pass a stricter model in order to appear and be discussed. In order to encourage them, starting from our next edition any good, accepted & implemented suggestion does earn you 30~80 credits. Note: New suggestion must be manually accepted by staff, they must follow the model. More info: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3948-submitting-a-suggestion-model Now Bug Reports must pass a stricter model in order to appear and be checked. There's also a list of unfixable bugs presented with work-arounds. If there's a bug report that shows an already existing & confirmed problem it will be rejected. Note: New bug reports must be manually accepted by staff, they must follow the model. More info: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3946-reporting-a-bug-model List of known unfixable bugs: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3947-known-unfixable-bugs-work-arounds Cheers!
    19. Anyone from our community can submit hand-made guides that are not copy-pasted and that are in line with our custom settings / features. You can make a guide about almost anything related to our server(s). Starting from events, characters, gameplay, tips & tricks, etc. In order for your guide to be approved it must be manually accepted by one of our staff members, and to achieve that it must contain: Character name of the submitter (for the potential reward). Clear information that is respecting our settings. At least 2 photos. Minimum 200-250 words. Your own words (copy-paste is forbidden). Decent formatting. If the guide is accepted it will appear along the other already existing guides and players can use it for inspiration. Any accepted guide will grant you 100~300 credits depending on the subject, information and the work you've put in it.
    20. In order for a suggestion to show up it must be approved by one of our staff members, this is done just by following the suggestion model: Character name that is submitting it (for the potential reward). Suggestion type (server/website/forum). Suggestion content (make sure to include enough details so your suggestion is clear enough). How the suggestion can bring value. (Optional) How would you personally implement your suggestion (your vision). If you respect this model your suggestion will be approved and listed on the suggestion forum. Then you must wait for feedback from staff & (if necessary) players. Depending on it the suggestion will be move either to Accepted or Rejected sub-forums, based on the feedback. Any good, accepted & implemented suggestion can grant you 30~80 credits, depending on it. Cheers.
    21. In this topic we'll list the currently known bugs that can't be fixed and also the work-around for them if it does exist. DL Summon / SM Teleport Ally does stop the Helper on the characters that were teleported. Source: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3082-teleport-ally-bug/ Work-around: We've disabled Summon & Teleport Ally if character has no guild or the character doesn't have at least 2 members from the same guild in party. Sometimes in CC there is a visual bug where it shows you that few mobs are alive despite they aren't, not letting you to finish the event. Source: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3081-bugged-cc7/ Work-around: Make sure to have screenshots when it does happen and we will manually return your reward. Sometimes goldens/bosses does give double loot & kill message when they are slayed. Source: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3138-phoenix-double-loot-from-boss/ Work-around: There is no work-around, just threat it like a "feature". Good luck with it! Sometimes when using Chaos Machine you can randomly select another item from the extra bag without having free slots on main inventory to place it back. Source: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3295-inventory-bug/ Work-around: Just press "K" key in order to open the extra bag so you can put the item back on it. Summoner's Chain Lightning having attack speed problems when there are more than 250-300 players in the same sub-server. Source: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3715-summoner-chain-lighting/ Work-around: We've released Cometfall as a Summoner skill to be used in such circumstances. AE's Multi-Shot/Triple Shot and probably other skills from other classes as well can occasionally remain *stuck* targeting a mob without doing damage (it is a visual bug due to a client-server desync). Source: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3950-elfs-bug-multi-shot-skill/ Work-around: Put an activation skill on helper (something single-target) except from your AoE main skill. Sometimes after entering BC or DS you get a black window left-side of your screen. This is basically blocking your character from further actions. It is usually happening when you do receive a party / trade / etc request before joining the Event or exactly after joining it. Source: https://oldsquad.ro/forum/topic/3418-bc-bug/ Work-around: If you keep /re auto (not /re auto password) or /re off before going to the Event you'll never face it. We'll keep this list updated!
    22. In order for your bug-report to be accepted (showed on bug tracker) you need to provide the following details: Character name where it happened. Approximate server time when it happened. Proof of the bug (either screens or videos, videos always helps much better). How to reproduce it (if you can reproduce it): Any other details (optional). If you provide this details, your report will be manually accepted by one of our staff members, if you don't, it will simply be rejected and ignored. After your report is accepted, we will analyse it and confirm it or deny it (players can also help us by commenting on the report / adding any other details may be needed). If the bug is confirmed by us it will be moved to one of the following sub-zones: Solved - we already managed to fix it. Pending - we confirmed it and we're waiting for / working on a fix. Unfixable - we confirmed it but it is not currently technically possible to fix it. Cheers!

      Is there any approximate date (month?) we could be expecting release of new OS project? Considering fact that people have more free time now, me and many others are looking for new stable project but its pointless to start on server that's nearing 4 moths of progression. Tried 3 different servers in last month and none of them brings what OS did, met a lot of people along the way that are willing to try OS if new edition is released.
    24. Hello, OldSquaders ! First of all we would like to thank you for your interest in reading the Newspaper ! The Newspaper was created especially for you, the players, its only purpose being to connect us as much as possible and to get to know each other. So, here we are, the concept was a success, also bringing up more forum activity, even tho it looks like you enjoy the beefs more than the good things (yes, y'all, I saw your dirty little desires and secrets ). But that's fine, I don't blame any of you.. We all know that it's @Reporter 's fault, so.. it is the time.. we need to find another one ... 😂😂😂 (*clears throat*) Y'all really did believe me? Now speaking seriously, at the request of our now Head Reporter, because he is very busy in real life and the time is not at his pinky at the moment, we are opening the applications for an additional Reporter, meant to fulfill the rest of the activities (some more interviews, not necessarily with the same length as the ones that are already made, but more general and statistical, because any newspaper does need statistics too / maybe some more rumors, ofc, because you like it, our HeadReporter showed us). In this way I want to shoutout @Reporter again, and to thank him for his work, it is awesome ! In order to apply, just tell us why would you like to be a part of the Newspaper, tell us something about you (age, location, whatever) and any idea to improve the Newspaper, on our Facebook page, OldSquad Community, via Messenger ---> https://www.facebook.com/OldSquadMU/ ADMIN, Head Reporter and me will review the applications. The job is also rewarded with 500 - 800 credits per week, depending on the activity. Some requirements: This job has to be more of a passion, and because it is kind of easy (you don’t need to invest more than 2-3 hours per week), we are looking for players interested to cooperate for a long term. Also, since the ‘official’ language is English, a decent level of English knowledge is required, even tho the Head Reporter and me will guide the Junior Reporter with pleasure. These being said, we wish you all good luck and we are looking forward to find the right person to help us make the Newspaper even more interesting for us all !
    25. The Council, a project in which experienced or not so experienced players can help the administrative team take the best decisions in the game, where they can ask for explanations and understand the direction our community is heading. Over time I have seen all sorts of players with or without experience who complain about various things, they usually expect that if you enter the forum and open a simple topic, everything is solved, without thinking about the consequences. For example: an Elf player would like to have the top pvp Elf, top PVM, top everything, of course, it's easy to go in and ask but the impact of an upgrade of a class in the game can ruin the whole balance of the server. This new project is about us, about the players, about our community, a project that will help us to evolve progressively, I had a little talk with Gion, and I asked him to give us some more details about this project, so you can understand better what it is about. I've selected the most on-point discussions: Reporter:" Hello, Gion ! " Gion: " Hello, my dear friend ! " Reporter: "Can you tell us where the idea for the council came from? Who thought of this project and what is its purpose? " Gion: " Sure ! ADMIN had this idea, we wanted to implement it since the beginning of Inception, but we had a lot to work on the server side, so we delayed it until now. " Reporter:" What are your expectations from future Council members? Gion: " Since we delayed the project until now, it is understood by default that we want some quality, meaning that we cannot let 90% of the players' opinions in the hands of the .. let's say people who are not ready. Reporter:" The opinions of these council members will have a decisive impact on the game ?" Gion : " Of course. It is well known that this game is better in teams, no matter if a team has 2-5-25 members. Assuming that a team is usually sharing the way of thinking, because that's why they're a team, right ? So, assuming that the team has the same mentality, our aim is to have a representative in as many teams as possible, from the newcomers' parties up to the highest guilds. Just like a sampler does. Our aim is the Democracy. We want everyone to matter, and taking this into account, that's why I said that the Council is 90% of the players' opinion, any player can still open polls / suggestions / etc. by himself" Reporter: "After a player joins this Council, will he be able to continue to talk freely on the forum or in game?" Gion :" Yessir ! Anyone can speak freely " Reporter:" Will these players, once they enter this Council have any advantage in the game?" Gion: " There are no immediate physical rewards, as there are no responsabilities, but I am sure that the overall quality of the personal gameplay, as well as the public gameplay will be highly increased soon " Reporter:" Those who register, in order to be elected, must know how to speak English very well? " Gion: " It is recommended to know English in order to be able to let us, the others, know what's on your mind." Reporter:" In the announcement made regarding the recruitments of council members you mentioned that those members should be "Players that had contributed during these years", can you be a little more explicit?" Gion: " You don't have to meet all the requirements in order to be "elected" as a Council member. As you can see, the newcomers will be a part of it too. That's the "academic" answer, the true reason was already mentioned by me above, and it is that we want quality, even the newcomers have to show that they are ready and that they are really willing to do this. Obviously, the ones that "have already contributed during these years" are well-known by us. And we appreciate it. Looking forward to see more people doing it ! Cheers !" Reporter:" But when you say "contributed" you do not mean that he need to be a donor or something, right? " Gion: " 🤦‍♂️No, sir. It has nothing to do with the donations. We are talking about the ones who contributed with suggestions, ideas, also understanding when a suggestion/idea cannot be implemented not because it is wrong, but because we promote what the majority wants, just like it is in Democracy. " Reporter:"The announcement for the recruitment of these council members was made around 5-6 days ago, what is the status of the number of players registered for the selection? " Gion: " There are some players who expressed their will to do this and we are very glad. Thank you !" Reporter: "Who will select these members and when will this selection take place?" Gion: " The selection is made by ADMIN and me, as I said, based on the previous experiences (personal or public), no matter how small these experiences were. As you can see, we have already stared to add Members. " Thank you very much, Gion ! I am convinced that this new project will have 100% success rate ! Old Squad Council, a new futuristic project that is made for our community benefits! You have nothing to lose guys, to apply for a council member position just send a message with your CV via Facebook messenger !
