Wow a whole 4 luxtoberfest events?

How utterly LAME!

Why even bother if you're going to put so little effort into it?

No team games? Surviorfest? Ladies night? Map retrospective? Bio tournament? Memory?
We get a week of twitch then 3 static or boring events In my opinion. Will twitch be forced upon all players as you've done in past luxtoberfests? or will players retain the right to choose to play or not?

Yes let us all... Kill that evil lazy hare brained king...

Just when I thought Luxtopia couldn't be or get more disappointing...

Not even listing the start times of events? just hoping people show up? LMAO! :lol:

:torch: collective uprising can begin NOW!!! RABBLE RABBLE!!! :torch:

So much for #MissionLuxtopia...

It's reactions like that which makes me want to host events even less.

Matching the fest to the level of play happening as it is.

Come rabble rouse at Kill The King, an event which has been plenty of fun in the past.

October 14th, come play Mission Lux... we'll be using Castle Maps and other favs. Not exactly survivor, but similar in ways...

some personal words from me:

Hi Naraku,
I substantial agree with a lot of things you said, but actually and since month I see you only complaining and creating a negative environment. I have the feeling you are just criticizng for the sake of critcizing. This is neither helpful nor fair. You complain about bringing back MOTW, but I haven't seen you play any games in MOTM. The first step IMHO would be to play regularly. I am sure Dustin is rather listening to active players than to guests-only.

I personally am also not happy about Luxtoberfest being a smaller event than in the past. I would also like to see more events. My dream is also a great event with tournament games going all weeks long. But we also have to notice that there are less active players and big events won't really work and would likely fail. So better less and well organized events than big events with empty rooms. If these events become succussfull I am sure we can arrange more events in future and maybe we can even bring some major events back in future (like Castle).

It is not only on Dustin. Tournaments can be also organized and hosted by the community. Unfortunetely we don't have someone like Mentor09 spending a lot of time hosting and organizing tournaments. Dustin and the mods will Support such events with hosts and ranking systems. So don't waste you time with critizing, use your time to organize events yourself! Spend your time playing some games if you really want to return to old times. If you don't have fun and want to move on, then do so. Else try to do something positive to bring Lux back to where it was once. But don't take out the fun for the People activly playing, just because you are unsatisfied.

And George: Yes. Para was a great host, but we all know (or maybe don't know exactly) what happened. Para was boon and bane for Lux.
Unrealistic wishes won't really help either or change anything. This has been discussed already a lot. Unfortunetely Para decided to work against Dustin so that train is gone long time ago and don't think there will be any chance in near future. I think noone is happy about what happened, but we all can't turn times back. The world is not perfect. Neither is Dustin nor Para. The same states for mods and each member of this community. We all make faults. So be gracious with us. We mods are only some volunteers who try to help to make this a better and working place. But we need your all support.

Many things should/could be better/other, but we also have to be realistic. Times changes. Maybe we expext too much. For Dustin it is business. For us it is a game we send less than 20$ and have fun for years.

So what did not change? I still enjoy this game and the community. I enjoy playing this game with you all. It still has much potential. It is still about what we all make out of it. We can't change things, but we can do a lot. Host games yourself! Host tournaments! Start forum games! Have fun! I will give the Luxtober a chance because I enjoyed all Luxtoberfests over the past 10 years.

my 2 Cents. Cya in some games.

Can't polish these turds of Dustin's or yours any more GFips. If you're honestly happy with the dismal state of affairs in luxtopia by all means keep playing & pretending that this place isn't a burnt out ruin of what it once was. Yes complaining that the rules aren't being followed, or just outright broken but who cares about those @ this point? If the truth hurts & is considered negative then so be it. I'm criticizing because there could've been a positive change or even a fun luxtoberfest scheduled/planned. Instead it's minimal effort.

There is no point in playing the MotM. The maps dustin picks are awful and he won't accept suggestions like the maplab once did. You enjoy playing 1 tally MotM wins? good for you! MotM is trash compared to MotW and we all know it at this point. MotW never had weeks so slow that the games played were 1 for the week. Look back on the MotM history & anyone can see how few games are played. The maps are of lesser quality compared to many of the MotW's as well. Why bother playing in games when Sillysoft refuses to moderate or prevent players from manipulating the chase? Speaking of Tournaments when is the next lux tournament? Castle's? Survivorfest? Anything?

Mods are barely playing in the games anymore Milltycoon the entire tenure of his "modship" played 40 games in total. 0 entries in the mod log. I haven't seen bean, pjb or deep blue in game much either, but then Owned was a mod for many moons with 0 activity in lux so w/e. :panic:

I get it dustin's moved on & doesn't care about lux as much as he use to. Why bother having a barebones luxtoberfest? It's just a sad mockery of what lux once was. Twitch all week! Hooray! :party :curtsey :beers Yes many of us USE to have fun playing... perhaps this is why luxtopia's population is dwindling to nothing? :?:

Also there is little to no information provided about the tournament events themselves. When they start, how they'll be scored, what missions are in the game, list of maps to be played on. Go Luxtoverfest 15, 2018 edition!!! :party :smt030 :smt033 :pirate: :lol: :-D :wink:

missed you guys...
I am looking forward to play some luxtober events...
Dustin cannot host more events, he obviously needs help and assistance on that front.
Players used to assist, introduce and organize their own events.
I might be mistaken but:
I remember preacherman introducing the Survivor, the team-mission based game
Snypereye also introduced and organized successfully the Castle tournaments
I myself organized the World Cup soccer team games
Para organized entire luxtoberfests alone (but that's para)

so why don't active players step up and co organize side tournaments during the festival.
that's called being proactive.

bunch of clowns :)

well said GK :smt023 As far as I know you are correct in all points. SnyperEye did a lot (not only castles, also events like touchdown, bowling, ...) and it was not only Snyper.

But it seems noone wants to buckle down these days. It is comfortable to have got it made by others. Complaining is much easier than doing something productive.

@GK: I also would like to see somes sports event. Interested in doing something together?

I am looking forward to see you in some games!
