Okay so I logged into Linden Realms today and everything is completely ruined. WHY? The entire game has been re-textured (inexpertly and *incompletely* re-textured BTW), to resemble some kind of "zombie apocalypse" making it really dark and UGLY with burning fires and pee coloured water everywhere. As well as being horrifically UGLY, DARK and VIOLENT, it has had the effect of keeping the good players out of the game and INCREASING the already large amount of CHEATING going on. I mean WTF Linden Labs? The fact is, that most cheaters are teenaged boys, griefers, etc. Anyone who's played Second Life for any length of time knows the people I mean. Go to any Linden Hub or help Island and watch the antics of these juvenile idiots. They RUIN THE GAME for everyone around them so smart, mature players who are actually *interested* in Second Life learn to avoid the and avoid those areas. Linden Realms attracts these people because you are able to CHEAT and make actual lindens for the effort. Everyone who plays the game is aware of these a-holes and we've even had to actively form our own defence groups etc. to call them out and report them for the harassment, cheating, theft, etc. SO WHY F*CKING REDESIGN THE WHOLE GAME SO THAT IT IS ATTRACTIVE TO THE PEOPLE WHO CHEAT, STEAL ALL OUR STUFF, KILL US, AND HARASS US? Almost every "normal" adult human person I've played Linden Realms with and talked about it with likes Linden Realms almost more than Second Life itself. We are housewives, business people and various other completely normal people spending a bit of our time in Second Life playing a simple, yet consuming game. The CHEATERS and the GRIEFERS are there but they are a minority. Why make the game "UGLY" to the good players so they will be discouraged from playing it, and at the same time make it ATTRACTIVE to teenaged boys who CHEAT?????? I stood there in the Portal Park today and watched as CHEATER after CHEATER, gave a huge "Hurrah!" to the changes and jumped right in, while all the normal adult players that I'm friendly with LEFT, their heads hung low. I do not understand why this has happened. Why not spend some time trying to stop the CHEATING instead? There might as well be a sign when you start the game suggesting that it's "just for teenagers" and "cheating is allowed."
