# 1 What if our devs were doffs?
09-21-2012, 09:05 AM
There are tribbles with the dev's name in game, but oddly enough no such doff can be found. But I'm sure we could imagine a doff for several of them.

* Borticus
Traits: Tactful, logical, resilient, cold blooded.
Race: Saurian.
Specialization: Shield distribution officer.

Why a BFI doff? Because I'm sure he mentally braces for impact before reading the pvp forums since he's in charge of this part of the game. And he must be incredibly resilient and logical to ignore all that rage.


There are many other devs so now I need your help to make their doff equivalents since I don't really know much about them. Any suggestions? And would you like to see that in game?

If I might interject...

Since this thread seems to be intended as a whimsical take on the Devs rather than serious feedback, I have moved it to the Ten Forward forum.

I would like to point out to people who choose to respond to it that they should remember the following Forum rule:

I did not insult the devs in my post. I did not name one dev in my post. My post was not about any one dev nor did I disdain the dev team.

And I apologize if it was interpreted as such.

That said, capitalizing Devs (the Czar? the Fed? the Pope? Devs or devs?) would seem to validate my insight into intentions of the OP. The fact someone else unequivocally agreed suggests I was right on the money.

How is stating my view that having video game devs double as salespeople and aggrandizing them with a cult of personality is bad for critical development of video games considered to be offensive or trolling, Bluegeek?
I'm sorry, but I really don't get it. =/ Could you clarify, please?

What you call cheap shots , is seen by others as just in good fun.
The OP use of DStahl was in no way offensive, or a cheap shot.
It was fun, and funny.

Since our new community moredator doesn't understand the difference between trolling and humour, and seems to be a bit zealous to get his permanent moderator position, you can just close this thread now.

To answer your question directly, I do believe there are doffs named after the devs. They are not handcrafted as such but they definitely have their handles. Possibly coincidence, not sure. More likely whimsical dev humor in designing them.

At the risk of being off-topic,

I am as bound by the forum rules as any other user, so I can not discuss specific moderation actions publicly in any way, shape, or form. If I do, I am violating the same rules I'm supposed to support.

If you feel you need to get in touch with PWE BranFlakes to discuss the actions taken by any Community Moderator (me), you can do so by submitting a Forums and Website ticket (click here). Email to customersupport@perfectworld.com also works.

diogene0, if you really want this thread closed I can do that. Not a threat, just asking if you really want it closed. If you want to do dev2doff conversions, I don't have a problem with it as long as you're not putting someone in a negative light. The borticus one was funny and I don't think he'd be offended by it.

To be fair, sometimes it is a rather thin line.
