Hey everyone,

The release of Deadman mode has been very action-packed. With tens of thousands of you logging into Deadman worlds to take on the challenge, we have see a great deal happen in the past day:

  • Over 5 players have achieved 100+ kills.
  • 2 players have achieved 100+ deaths.
  • Many players have completed Monkey Madness.
  • 2 players have lost over 1 million coins worth of items in a single death!

  • With so many of you playing Deadman mode we have received a vast amount of feedback from the thousands of players who've tried it out. It isn't possible to implement everyone's requests immediately, of course, but here are a few tweaks that we've been able to prepare for today:

  • Skull timers are no longer reset when retaliating.
  • When a skulled player dies outside of PvP, they suffer a harsh death - but with no player for available to receive the key, the 28 items are dropped to the floor instead. These items will now appear instantly to everyone rather than after 1 minute.
  • Skulled players can no longer receive random events.
  • It is now possible to earn Mining experience inside the instanced essence mine.

  • We'll be working on some other tweaks after the weekend. Popular requests include a timer to show how much longer your skull will last, and an indicator to clarify whether you're at risk of a harsh death, among many other player suggestions.

    In other news...

  • Fixed some animation issues with Anti-Santa's panties.
  • Ultimate iron men can now un-pack the item sets received from the Halloween event.

  • Mods Alfred, Archie, Ash, Ghost, Ian, John C, Kieren, Mat K, Maz, Ronan, Weath

    Just going to quote some feedback I left elsewhere, my thoughts (criticisms) of Deadman Mode. Liking it so far.

    Original message details are unavailable.
    I agree the loss of your bank is a bit much. The exp loss penalty is enough punishment in my opinion.

    Spent a good few hours grinding to get myself food on deadman, died due to a misclick and lost my entire bank (even stuff like tinderboxes lol).

    Keeping your banked items would allow the game to be played properly. Right now, everyone just grabs cakes or trouts or even just cooked chickens etc, then kill low level players and raid their banks.

    I also saw a level 50+ player PKing all of the level 5s training at goblins lol. Wonder if that's a sign of things to come for the mode? :P

    The skull system is kind of flawed too, if someone is skulled they will get piled by everyone. This is because attacking a skulled player won't skull you. Even if they didn't attack you in the first place. Maybe it will work out just fine as the initial hype wears off though.

    Basically, it's a PvP mode but you get punished heavily for attacking anyone. Pretty much instant death for skulling at the moment.

    I also think hitpoints should automatically be protected as well, rather than take up one of your combat skill protections, due to it limiting potential training/PvPing builds.

    Just my thoughts/criticisms of the mode. (Loving the rest of it so far by the way)

    Mod Ronan,

    Please make an, "Are you sure?" question pop up when accidentally misclicking another player in a safe zone. I've turned left click attack off and still managed to accidentally attack someone and die uselessly. Literally, the most annoying thing about this game mode. I'm sure many veterans and noobs would agree. It's entirely impossible to not misclick attack someone at some point while playing.

    Thank you.

    Can we have a visible skull count down please?

    Desperately needed. Impossible to know if the skull will disappear.

    Should encourage PvP too. As unfortunately no one wants to attack anyone....

    If a skulled player dies to a NPC/Monster all of their 28 most valuable stacks will be dropped on the floor, showing instantly.

    In the goblin village you can go downstairs to where the goblin chef is and it seems that that area is instanced making it impossible to chase someone who goes down this ladder, feels like it really takes away from the experience of what should be deadman mode.

    Kill someone , then find a monster to kill you so you can die safely .

    Way to go guys.. lol

    Question.. If I die to a pker and he kills himself with an npc to avoid punishment , do all my items drop to the floor where I died?

    Rip Deadman..Yea , I'm out. If I wanted the people who pk me to get off scott free , would have played Darkscape..
