Inane Wanderings
A blog about....well about....something. Really.
zOMG was indeed only Marvel Dead
So as I'm sure everyone and his or her brother/sister/sibling of non-binary gender is aware, zOMG has been resurrected. Yup, I've wandered around some, solo'd a couple sets of giftboxen, collected the daily crap.

A couple of thoughts:

- In case you hadn't heard, the amounts of gold shown in the game are missing some zeroes at the end. They have indeed been adjusted for inflation (thank goodness). Check your gold count in a normal site window to confirm.

- Yup, there are still bugs. Please report 'em if you got 'em. (But check to to see if it's been reported before, so you can add on to previous reports.)

My personal thoughts:

Yes, it's back. But it's still zOMG. The issues that reduced my playing time to nil are all still there. It's nice to have something else to do, and there are a couple of badges I always thought it would be nice to have, so maybe I'll work on those from time to time. But as I wrote in previous entries, I've accomplished everything I really, truly wanted to accomplish in game, and that hasn't changed.

What also hasn't changed is that I have yet to encounter a friend in zOMG. I don't know if I'm choosing the wrong servers or I have time when everyone else doesn't or everyone is really gone, but since it's been back, I have yet to see a blue dot on any map.

What I thought might be nice is to see if there's anyone interested in some casual DMS crewing, mostly for farming Shadow Orbs. Again, the problem is still there: when DMS first came out, everyone I knew who was a hardcore player played it for hours on end. They all became 12s quickly, then only wanted to crew with 12s and only with those who already knew all the patterns and their shorthand.

At that time, I was wrestling with myriad family issues, many of which I'm still dealing with, and any that have ended have been replaced with new ones. Getting old sucks, but not for the reasons you originally think it does. I didn't have that kind of time then and I still don't.

But Shadow Orb farming is something in zOMG I haven't done to the point where I'd rather poke my eyes out with red hot vanadium spikes, and who knows - maybe there are some other folks in the low 10s who might want to futz around with it from time to time. It might even be fun if we don't take it too seriously.
