  1. Ugh, that dreaded colour.
  2. Nice guide. Some media would be cool, pictures etc showing the outfits.
  3. Hey everyone. I didn't think I'd ever be making one of these. But just to make it clear first off, this isn't a Farewell. I'm not leaving. I didn't want to crowd the announcements/staff updates with the thread. And this was the next best place to do it. First off, I made this video that you can watch if you want the spoken version of my resignation/reasoning. It's 42 minutes long so I don't blame you, but it fully explains the story of why. It's a lot more in-depth than this so I'd recommend that over this I tend to ramble on, so I apologise in advance. I first started Edelar/Ataraxia in July last year. I was bored at Uni, just starting a new degree and decided to play an RSPS as it had been over a year since I last played/looked for one. When I started, I wanted staff. Instantly. I have an issue, well not an issue, but I just love being staff. It gives me power and allows me to be in control of something. Sounds sad, but yeah. It took me 2 weeks to get Forum Moderator, I loved forums, I had a pretty pink crown. Two weeks later I got Global. I maintained that rank for a while. The old owner of Ataraxia/Edelar was a terrible boss to have. He gave me the first payment I have received from playing RSPS. This made me realise I can make money from doing what I love. At this time I was running the staff team from Global Moderator and pretty much acted as an Admin. This went on for about 3 months. Now, the old owner had a bit of a problem. He delved into the alcohol a bit too much. When he got drunk, he'd demote his staff. Me included. It happened about 5 times all up. It was a stressful experience for me personally. As I'd get paid on the 2nd of every month, the entire month i'd be worried about getting demoted just before I was meant to get paid and then lose everything. All of the effort I put in over that month would be pointless. I was in it for the money 100%. I wouldn't have been able to tolerate it otherwise. It all ended one day when I asked him if he was going to get Platinum that season in League of Legends. He took this as me saying i'm more interested in league of legends rather than Edelar. One thing led to another, I knew he was going to demote me, so I told him to just get it over with and demote me already. So he did. And he didn't wake up the next morning and undo it that time. At this point, I was lost, I had no idea what I was going to do. I was pretty much ready to just turn it in, this was the only thing I had that I could justify, just being around. Noele then invited me to join Ataraxia as a Global. Once again, watch the video, I go a lot more in-depth. I thought i was going to come on as Admin, but I didn't. Fuck I really hate typing so i'm going to skip a bunch. Tl;dr Forum Mod > Global Mod > Global Mod (better owner) (thought I deserved Admin) > Administrator (got it by being active and doing YouTube) > Co-Owner (Clumsy had to leave, I replaced) > Now Ex-Staff The reasoning behind this is. After playing for over 3,000 hours, you tend to lose motivation. I used to love being the person everyone came to, the person everyone wanted to suck up to. The person that could answer every question they had. I loved getting messaged by people. But now, and for the past month, I've absolutely hated it. I cannot stand being messaged for help, and It's gotten to the point where I ignore people. And I fucking hated Owners/Co-Owners/Staff that did that to me. I don't want to be that person anymore. I always told the staff that I managed if it gets to a point where you don't want to log on or logging on is a chore, or you only log on if it's 100% necessary, you shouldn't be staff. I've reached that point, so for the past month, I've been planning my resignation. I wanted to leave at a good time, but I kinda fucked that up. I wanted to ensure that when I leave, Ataraxia will still be successful. It sounds egotistical thinking that Ataraxia can't survive without me. But I didn't want to leave and then people think that I'm leaving just because the server isn't succeeding at the moment. Ataraxia will succeed with the proper effort of the Development team and Noele, I have no doubt in my mind about their ability. Node, you came in at a great time in the server and managed to make yourself known almost instantly, it was incredible, you are incredible. Kris, your development for the server was amazing, you gave Ataraxia so much content that was the main cause of our success. You leaving will definitely leave a void. P.S You're a cunt Clumsy, You were the best, you believed in me, I don't think i would have ever got so far into Ataraxia without you pushing me along. Thanks for everything, and i miss you. Ryan, fuck you piss me off. You were a damn good admin though, It sucks you left and the way you left wasn't ideal. And it's made me annoyed for a very long time. But it doesn't take away from the fact that you earned admin and a great companion to have to talk to and play GTA with. Rahoc, Similarly to Ryan you were a great friend to have. It was nice just bitching about things with you, kept me sane for a long time. I'm sure we'll talk a lot more in the future. Keenan, Thanks for being there so i can bitch. You've been probably my closest mate on this so thanks a lot. P.S Surprised you kept this secret for so long. Chris/Cook, Fuck you annoy me, but I've known you for too long to let it effect how i think about you. Ty for sticking with Ataraxia and being a great mod (most of the time). Snix, you've been mod for too long. Surprised you've stuck around so consistently. Don't feel bad if you haven't been mentioned. It doesn't mean anything bad. Everybody who has played Ataraxia deserves special thanks because you've given me something to do for a year. And I loved it. And obviously, I couldn't forget the person that has given me purpose and helped me out of so many things. The person that gave us all something to do. The person that has been there for a year consistently providing everybody with an amazing server and insane dedication. Obviously, it's Noele. It's the type of thing that cannot be put into words. But Noele you've done more for me than anyone has my entire life. (except my parents). So this is the end of me being Co-Owner. It's been a great year, and I thank everyone for having me. Over this year i've amassed: 3,200 hours, 661 Post-Count, 626 Reputation (please help me get more rep than posts). I've tried so hard and I hope that everyone enjoys their future on Ataraxia. It was one of the best years of my life. And a great experience to have, giving me a job for a year and a place to escape the horrible reality which is life. Thanks for everything. If you have any questions, watch the video or just send me a question via pm or here. Thanks for giving me a great year and practically being a second family. Jaedmo

  8. Previously we granted access to almost everybody that asked for the beta client. Since little to no-one actually used the server for the reasons we opened it for, a new application-based system is in place. This is to prevent information being leaked as well as ensuring that everybody on the beta is helping the developers in the way they are needed, rather than spawning spins, items and doing admin-things to fulfil your dreams. The requirements for a Beta Tester are (subject to change): Fluent in English (for easy communication with the developers) Over 200 hours in-game - This is so you understand the game before you start testing it. You must know the current content of our server before testing the changes. Consistent activity, 2-4+ hours a day on the beta server (if it's required at the time) Knowledgeable and experienced in all PvM and Skilling aspects of Ataraxia, tying into the hours required. You don't share information from the beta if granted the rank, this will result in you losing the rank. These are subject to change, if you have any suggestions for the requirements (none will be removed unless decided by Noele/Kris/David/Cjay). Suggestions on what to add to the requirements only, for now. The application (must use): In-game Name: Age: Hours Played: Expected activity on the beta: Any other notes: This isn't going to be a strict application process, it's just so the developers can choose people that they think will do the best job at testing new updates so that on release they are absolutely perfect. What's in it for you? There are no amazing benefits of testing for us. It improves the server in the long run. However, the currently decided rewards are ranks on the Forums, Discord and soon to be In-Game (hopefully). Jaedmo, Noele, Kris & the Development Team Post suggestions below.
  9. Hi members of Ataraxia, today I bring you the staff update for the 14th September, 2017. A lot of changes. @Multiply has been promoted to Server Support Thoroughly deserved, congratulations. You're active, helpful and the ideal candidate for Support. I wish you the best of luck @Nobuyuki has been promoted to Game Moderator This happened a while ago, but still worth mentioning. A great asset for us at the moment, keep up the great work. Tom has resigned from Game Moderator Ryan was demoted from Server Support W0w was demoted from Server Support With all of these people being removed/resigning, we're looking for new supports. Regards, Jaedmo, Noele, Node & the Staff Team.
