GMs for people are basically an all in one position. A technical support, A game developer, A customer support, A producer, A president of the game, A Game Master and definitely A Gear Master. (lol)

you should add what is a publisher too, so they can't ALWAYS RELY on Cherrycredits with suggested adjustments and feedbacks.

+1 for you sir (clap)

But I think that these people will not bother though.
There's this one QQ thread that's still ongoing (sadly), blaming GMs just because they can't get what they want.
They are all deeply convinced that all Gachapon Altea Box or Magnifying Glass rewards are controlled and distributed by GM.
The chance to get certain items are set by the system,
I do not think that GM will personally influence that chance you got,
But then again, it's the community who blames a lifeless NPC for breaking their equipment so (shame)

But good work sir, you made me believe there's actually still some decent human being around here (;])

@Yuhlia Thank you for your good work always. (:&gt;)

Edit: didn't see this Necro coming (oo)

I'm actually hoping for this thread to be pinned or be allowable to be necro'd. After all, so many people are looking for things to blame. Also, if you haven't taken part in our discussion on toxic players, please do visit.

Well, in short:

GM == An in-game character that has an added authority similar to what is called an admin...
Devs/Developer == game maker. half-god of game.
Admin == An in-game character that is like a half-god in-game. Has full authority inside the game and can tinker with almost everything in the game

I have experienced setting up a few private servers in the past, but not hosting them or anything.. just testing things -__-"

Maybe there should be a level like this...

Level 0 - Player Character/Normal Players
Level 1 - GM (something like PR?)
Level 2 - GM (can produce items/teleport/summon players at will)
Level 3 - Half-God GM / Admin (can change weather, time, put up events, change npcs, item drop rates...)
Level 4 - Devs (game makers/programmers.. without these guys DN wouldn't exist you know?)

Years ago I thought GMs were like the best players there was in the game, yet I thought how'd they would come up like that? No loses? No deaths? That's some feat achieved by a single player, then why not make a player that you can just feed with a char that can lose to the main char on purpose?

Also casting my support to be pinned.

Thanks Yuhlia it's much appreciated.
I hope this will at least lessen your workload even for a little bit,
People seriously thought forum moderators or Game Masters could actually change/fix things in game immediately. (bow)
