I just want to permanently record my memorial moments about Gaiaonline, the events, the friends I made and all about this first year experiences and the months to come.
August 2008 (OMG ZOMG IS COMING!)
Phew, finally I have some time to write in my journal again. I have been busy lately so I hardly had time to spend on Gaia, but now I am here. smile
Even though Gaia is full of surprises every month there was only two events I found worth mentioning:
Yup, that's right. xp
It seems like we are finally going to have the long awaited Battle Sys.... I am sorry, zOMG! So to celebrate the occasion Gaia decided to release yet another random item generator item: The ZOMG Rumble Box
Like the many previous random boxes this one was packed with new random items based on the upcoming Batt... ZOMG! FLUX! scream Anyways, I am hoping that the next announcement about zOMG! (Happy now? stare ) is about the system itself being released and plase Gaia DO NOT CHARGE FOR IT!gonk Seriously the Cash Shop has pretty much taken over and now the last thing cheapskates like me need is to be banned from the most awaited feature in Gaia history just because we don't like spending money on pixels. I mean, is that a bad thing to be punished so cruelly? xp Yes, I know the official announcements said it will be free, but believe me the staff doesn't always keep their word (Ask around wink ). As for this random box, I might consider some of its items when they have deflated enough. whee
That was the biggest event for August, but there was one more that people still talk about: The new My Gaia Page
You saw this coming, right? xd
As always Gaia makes another small change and once again the forums were full of change haters demanding their good old layout back. The good old layout? You mean the one everyone hated when it was brand new as well? And wanted the previous one that was better? Which also everyone hated when it was brand new? surprised
You get the idea, whether you like it or not you will get over it like you did with the previous million and one. biggrin
I find it more useful, is much easier to browse specially since the last one sometimes didn't scrolled down to the last options. I can also see my own house and vehicle without having to go to My House or the Car Shop.
Ok, that pretty much sums up the most important additions and changes.
The August letters opened and boy, what a debate! eek
We got the choice between the Lusty Scoundrel and War of Warlords. No problem with the second one, but the first one was seen by some as innapropriate for a PG-13 website. Only because is lusty? neutral Same thing happened with the final evolution of the Alruna's Rose, but that's another story. rofl
