View Full Version : Absor's Smash button lost, found

December 11th, 2003, 03:35 PM
2 nights ago, on the Test server, a button with an S on it appeared on the combat ability window of all melee types. The tooltype for the button claimed pressing it would give a detailed list of the combat abilities you had learned. However, when pressed, the button crashed yu to desktop and Smashed the entire zone as well. At almost the same time, Absor got promoted and Brenlo Bixiebopper took his spot. Coincidence?, Could the S mean Smash? I can see it now: Day 1 Absor is showing Brenlo around the office and points to a button with a big S on it "That's a very powerful weapon, make sure it doesnt fall into the wrong hands". Day 2 brenlo says "They are working on melee balancing over on test server, maybe the melees need a powerful weapon." Day 3 Melee types all over Norrath see a mysterious S button appear before them. 15 mins later, explosions appear all over Norrath as zone after zone is Smashed to smithereens. Think we'll ever find out the truth? I know it's out there.
It would probably make a good set of comics though.

...except Absor was promoted from basically a public relations job, which Brenlo is taking over. The position doesn't have the authority or even tools to add things to the game directly.
