Let me explain...

Here's the text in question...

civilized <836/836hp 585/585m 752/752mv 5 AM>
Bakrmarr has arrived.
A hellish fire elemental has arrived.

civilized <836/836hp 585/585m 752/752mv 8 AM>
You yell 'Die, Bakrmarr, you sorcerous dog!'
Bakrmarr utters the words, 'grzzs'.
A wave of fatigue overwhelms you with the beckoning temptation of sleep.

civilized <836/836hp 585/585m 752/752mv 8 AM>

The prompt AFTER he walks in marks the time when he walked in, not the prompt prior to his entrance.

- The first prompt is at 5 AM. This is where the victim loses his connection.
- The game ticks to 6 AM, but you don't get a new prompt on a tick. You would get an updated prompt is something happened like stone skin went down or the weather changed. But nothing happened except that the mud ticked, so nothing is sent to the client. Therefore, he can sit there and stare at the prompt that says 5 AM, but it's really 6 AM.
- Another tick happens. Same thing...nothing updates his prompt. No one walks by, sends him a tell, etc.
- Yet another tick happens. It's now 8 AM, but his screen has not been updated since 5 AM, so to him it looks like it's 5 AM.
- Suddenly Bakrmarr walks in the room. This message (any message) causes an updated prompt to be sent to the client. Three ticks have passed and it's 8 AM, so that's the prompt he gets immediately when Bakrmarr enters the room.
- Bakrmarr immediately sleeps him as the prompt sent after the spell is still 8 AM.

You can try this yourself. Go somewhere remote and don't enter any commands. Chances are when a spell falls or you get hungry, if more than one tick has happened, the new prompt will be more than +1 hour after the one you've been staring at for 5 minutes. That doesn't mean you got hungry 5 hours ago, it just means the mud hasn't had any reason to update your prompt until now and it happens to be 5 hours after your last prompt.

I hope this makes some sense. I don't know how else to explain it. That doesn't mean Bakrmarr is not everything you said he is. It's just that this is not an example of it (unless you think the full-loot is enough).

Dumb dick looking for easy virtue signaling. (n/t)

Matrik 81 December 11, 2017 01:21PM

Yep he did walk in and slept him instantly. Glad you understand that. Now apologize. (n/t)

PacMan 53 December 11, 2017 11:31AM

Nah. The ticks had been happening, but you don't get an updated prompt unless something happens. He walked in and slept him immediately. (I had the same thought when I first saw it) (n/t)

saagkri 74 December 11, 2017 11:02AM

He walks in at like 5 and cast sleep at like 8 but you guys clearly know everything. nt

Raman 77 December 12, 2017 08:43AM

Let me explain...

saagkri 102 December 12, 2017 09:06AM

wrathpuppet 57 December 11, 2017 08:33AM

I'm guessing since the Destructor fell during the first fight that he had no powers. (n/t)

Kez 79 December 11, 2017 10:09AM

Kstatida 220 December 11, 2017 04:02AM

I don't know if you know this...

saagkri 190 December 11, 2017 08:49AM

Russian language has a separate obscene language in which you can talk about anything including nuclea physics

Kstatida 130 December 11, 2017 09:23AM

You obviously cannot deny that Russian pipes are sometimes made of briar root. Check and mate, comrade. (n/t)

saagkri 37 December 11, 2017 11:01AM

Plehaise, taek mhe to yor nuclie-ar fahsealities. (n/t)

MiyagiYojimbo 56 December 11, 2017 10:48AM

zanzarin 185 December 11, 2017 08:07AM

Yes. There is an Imperial Perma.

K-B 160 December 11, 2017 12:01PM

Probably the biggest perma I've seen in recent history was in the Fortress

PacMan 161 December 11, 2017 12:33PM

Nice troll nt

K-B 63 December 11, 2017 01:13PM

We don't appreciate you denying that we don't care about thieves. (n/t)

MiyagiYojimbo 49 December 11, 2017 10:40AM

I'm sorry I keep killing your characters. (n/t)

Kstatida 80 December 11, 2017 09:24AM

Better sorry for spreading matrik-like nonsense on boards nt

zanzarin 84 December 11, 2017 05:18PM

It's me who decides what I'm sorry for

Kstatida 73 December 12, 2017 01:12AM

Somethere a zanzarin is crying because you're being so innoying.

MiyagiYojimbo 60 December 12, 2017 09:51AM

No, it's we. (n/t)

Matrik 55 December 11, 2017 08:28AM

Prayed a lot about someone not breaking rules. You're what's wrong with CF. (n/t)

Matrik 83 December 11, 2017 03:44AM

Don't worry. It won't last forever.
