Question The Great VMK Mystery - Flying Carpet Magic

I am truly puzzled as to why full-time use Flying Carpet Magic was never released to everyone, especially since they kept saying it was going to come out, it was just a matter of when. This secret might just die with the game. Anyone have any theories?

Yeah, I don't think they should have released it during the last night. People would have crashed.

That didn't have any bugs that anyone's aware of.

Now, you don't know that! How can we really be certain he's lying?

We had enough stuff before closing as there was, we don't need to be greedy.

Can't we just be happy with what we had before VMK closed?

who said it was bugs, it was more of how much bandwidth of the server it takes up, flying carpet is a very complicated magic

Staff did. lol.

It might have had to do with bandwidth, but I don't think so. Normally, magic only affected those in the room since it had to play the various animations associated with it.

there were alot of bugs with the magic. I remember once that I was in a room with him and he said that one of the bugs that the magic had was, it would make him cross over the ropes room dividers when he didn't want it to. And they said they could never figure out how to solve that. Something like that.

I can only agree with CapnOlaf. We were given the opportunity to enjoy the night of our lives on our final day of VMK, and even after VMK has closed, we are still accusing Yavn of lying and staff and other moderators being lazy.

(1) Yavn technically never lied. He told the truth. At that time, if Flying Carpet Magic was supposed to be released, than that is the truth, and obviously he would tell us, but things come up and things happen.

(2) VMK did have many glitches the following morning, and tempting the servers and systems could have easily malfunctioned the system completely, causing a mass catastrophe. Though the magic itself is complicated in the game, the way a server looks at it is more data that cannot be contained. VMK releasing all of those items was extremely dangerous in the first place.

(3) All VMK staff were told they were working to May 21, 2008, to when the clock striked closing, and they worked to that point. No staff was necessarily "lazy", and or any technical producer or moderator showed any laziness. We receieved some of the most amazing items released in the hisory of VMK, and I personally feel we should be grateful for what we recieved and not what we didn't.

I am sorry if this offended anyone, but it is my personal opinion and is the way I feel.
