Alright, that was a lot to read.
I try to make it as quick and transparent as possible.
@dQgnflua broke the most important rule of the HWP philosophy: do NOT step into PvP like that!
The exact details don’t even matter, because it is a precedent to all sub actions, this might impact.
Then a lot of trash words were sent (making it even more worse than the PvP incident alone), maybe drunk, maybe emotional, but also not acceptable as representative of HWS.
HWP can be seen as “right hand” of me, helping me overall. But they are NOT “Admins” (and they should not label themselves as admins either to reduce confusion of this very powerful “admin” meaning). Hence what he said here and there has no impact of the true meaning of HWP or HWS. Learning the circumstances I will let it go through this time for him. But some sentences were really ugly and I won’t tolerate a second time of this.
So, the words he wrote is his business, he mostly apologized I think. He has to regain trust here and there or realize that HWP is not what he really wants, if he has personal grudge against someone. HWP is and should be always neutral to everyone.
I will give him time to think about that.
Until then, I revoked his HWP commands. For unpredictable time. He can still help people with his ships and resources under the flag of HWP.
(I updated the HWP Commands abilities in the Rule Guide)
dQ is a nice guy and I am really thankful for all his help, sympathy with players and overall attitude giving his best, even on a laptop on his boat. I still believe in him and let him do one last time what he can do good, helping new players and being positive, motivated, helpful towards HWS.
About the underlying issue:
I found out I can of course also change some GUI text, so I removed this confusing “Fresh Start” on the death screen wording with something better!?
I will make more changes about it - ideally removing this “Spawn Nearby” logic in PvP all together.
I’m closing this incident here for now and work on improving the situation as good as I can.
