Mariko Marchant: I would like to know why another meter
TwiFi Dryke (twifi.shamen): wanted to resolve issues that the other meter was not doing. Reduce headaches from dealing with raids, and things that help with rp.
Both GM meter and zCS meter work fine. They are compatible, except for some things like bandage, spash support and minor things like if someone with a GM meter downs someone with a zCS meter it will not count in the stats, but if a zCS plays downs someone with a GM meter it counts in the stats.
I heard someone say in a group that she likes both meters, but she did not like the meter war. Is it just a meter war or is the there more? Yes there is more. Alika one of the makers of GM is also a weapon vendor , because when she created the meter any relevant weapons were not available. And it is a very small player in the market.
Someone else said to me ”Thats my biggest problem with zCS they not only develop the meter they also script weapons both EQ and EZ and rumors that they have helped with VF as well”
The question is now: Are meters developed to help weapon vendors to increase their sales or are they vendor neutral and offer tool to the Gor community to enhance the fighting experience.
Fact is that this (meter) war is dividing the Gorean community. You only have to follow some groups to see this is true. Another problem there is no independent weapons testing group for both meters.
I have offered zCS ( TwiFi Dryke (twifi.shamen) to write an article about his vision and the of course GM (jaraziah.lowell) is very welcome to write her vision as well.
