I went on a short 3 month hiatus.
Came back, found the z!F and found all these guides.
I read them aand...

I used to think YM were literally yellow rooms.
And GR was literally, green rooms.
I thought DMS as a 5 way sort of thing.
One room with 5 doors;
One to YM, GR, HPR, crypt and Bloodlust
I always thought things like "Damn, how do these people know what theyre doing?"
Then I started DMS around July... I felt stupid.

Discuss;
What you envisioned DMS to be before you saw it.


inb4 it was a Halloween thing

I think DMS came out when I first started playing zomg, so I didn't even really know anything about it. I did used to wonder why everyone was slummin' around the gate all the time. And when they were saying "10+" "10.5+" "11+" it seemed like an impossible thing to get to.

Then when I finally discovered the zomg forum I saw the elitist threads and the first people to craft the epic recipes and it was all chaos and it scared me away from the forums.

The Halloween before DMS came out we had Jack hunting and that was where bats and Night Frights were first introduced. We had no idea how to defeat them without dying instantly so JK had to come in and help us. That's how we learned how to use scaredy and that's how we learned we needed cats and tapes going into DMS for the first time. Nowadays those rings never get assigned because crews have come to rely on tanks and what not. Now DMS has become smob-like

I wasn't the "FIRST" few people to play DMS, but I know I was one of the earliest players of DMS, back in november-ish-december-ish.

When I heard about it, I wanted to get in there so badly. I saw a bunch of shouts calling for 11.0 and people showing off how high they were. So I went on to level up my rings quickly, because it seemed like an awesome game. Sadly, I needed a bloodstone, so I had to quest for that shet xDDD

DMS seemed like a very hard game, therefore I wanted to get my a** in there and see it for myself. I didn't know what I was expecting, so I didn't predict what I thought it was going to be, expect I knew it would be hard.

Yeah
;w;
It seemed like the purpose for the game was to finally use rings that are hardly used.
Perhaps, to make it more fun and enjoyable to now be able to find a purpose.
The sad part of it all is that now this idea of "team work" is now compiled to only relying on one person to make the run easier.
I don't mind either way, honestly...I miss doing DMS the old fashion way.

Man. Those were the good days. When DMS came out, I was at the highest point of my life. I think what I liked about DMS when it first came out was that everyone was crewing with everyone else. I had never seen the community so united before.

I went on a break like after they announced the new place aka DMS.
Then I came back and it was open in public. I was very happy.
I didn't envision it or smth. I didn't have any idea.
The first time I went in there I was amazed.
Like. "Woaahh!!"
Now it's boring. I wanna see Kamila!! scream
um how do people level up so fast above level 10

im a level 10 and when DMS came out i literally had no clue what was going on, and then I just came back from a hiatus and go back on to try the DMS and still have no clue what's going on
HAHAHA

But my goal thus far is to be 10.1!!!!

Btw, do you know any guides?

People play a lot. They level up so fast. Like me.
To be 10.1, you need 30 shorbs.
Search, "A Not So DeadMan's Guide" or something like that.

people were so crazy on who gets to Kamilla first

z!f was filled with threads left and right.. its like watching a soap opera...
i spent more time reading than actually playing.. XD XD

and finding crews was bit different since you do need the bloodstone..

I remember when Kam was first killed.. it was like crazy news.. xd

So true. DMS was all about rediscovering the joys of the game. All the rings that were never used that gained importance. All the hundreds of strategies and working on different and varied. Everyone in the crew had a purpose and being successful depended on everyone carrying out their role to perfection. Now, it's been boiled down to using powerups and relying entirely on the tank.

Here's some good guides:

In the beginning before DMS was set to public, I remember that everyone was assigned to have Duct Tape, Scaredy Cat, Knife Sharpen, and so on. Basically everyone had to play a role in the game, and it was challenging but fun. Now everyone's relying on the tank, and the only thing we were assigned to are buff rings.
To tell you the truth, I miss the old way of playing DMS.
