Omerta Online Mob game, Attempt #2

Ok.

Why the new thread...., well here it is


Important announcement - possible reset
It is with grave humility that we have to announce that Omerta has been rolled back 4 days.

This is due to an attack on the DB servers by an idiot hacker.

The bug has been fixed but unfortunately the most recent backup which we can use is 4 days old.

This is due to a seperate issue, currently under discussion internally.

We realise that nobody will be happy with this but there is only one alternative - a full reset of Omerta.

Enquiries are ongoing internally to establish how such a ridiculous set of circumstances could arise and a new measure has been put in place to prevent this ever recurring.

In the mean time, given the lost ranking, the kills and wars which have occurred in the last four days, we would like to ask you if a better solution than a 4 day roll back would be to fully reset the game, leaving everyone back at square one.

Many people see this as the only fair solution.

During the coming hours we will hope to reach a decision accordingly and we hope to consult with family top 3 players, the Omerta User Group and with rank and file players via this news item and VOTD.

Please see VOTD for a choice - reset or keep this rollback.

NB The final decision will not be determined by the VOTD alone; we will simply be using this as one of several media for reaching a conclusion.

Once again we are embarrased and extremely sorry for the terrible inconvenience.

We wish it was not so.

I am voting for a full reset.


Please give me your username again if you plan on starting over, or create a new username. I am not going to just copy the previous one. I want to make sure that it is accurate.

Please keep in mind that a full reset of the game may happen!

It takes quite a while to get started, be patient.

FAQ Section:

Q: How do I go to Crimes and such?
A: Click the Yellow Crimes section on the left frame, there are the choices of your different crimes.


Q: What are the percentages next to the crimes?
A: This is the success rate of the crime, in percentages


Q: What are the waiting times I can encounter?
A: You can encouter these waiting times:
Crimes: 1,5 minutes
Car nicking: 5 minutes
Traveling: Between 30 and 75 minutes (depends on the plane)
Buying blood: 45 minutes
Shooting: 1 hour (note: Shooting someone more than 2 ranks below you will increase this waiting time)
Route66 Heists: 3 hours
OC's: 12 hours


Q: How do you find/add friends?
A: Use the quick lookup at the very bottom left hand corner of the page?


Q: Is there a DVDTalk crime family we can join yet?
A: No, You have to be a local chief or higher to start a family. No one here should be anywhere close to that level, unless you have been previously been playing this game.


Q: What happens when you die
A: Game over. You have to start over. Do not go picking fights, or killing people that are ranked higher than you.

How is the VOTD going? If they do a full reset I'll wait, otherwise I'll start now.

Looks like they are going to do a rollback with compensation. Doesn't help any of us except DCRocks.

looks like the new vote.... reset with compensation is gaining a lot of ground.

The reason I created the new thread is because of that poll.

sorry Twikoff

last night I had accepted an invitation to a super lame family and lost a shit-load at blackjack

I won't be playing much today and probably won't till Monday. But, I'll return.

Tried to rob a kid, went to jail. Tried to buy booze, went to jail. Tried to do anything else, reached my click limit. Tried to play the game, decided it was a pain in the ass and moved on.

Yeah, how do you get "better" at committing crimes? Every time I try to do anything I go to jail. I did steal a car one time but I guess I was "too nervous and crashed into a tree" I wouldn't exactly call this fun.

Since I just created my account yesterday, it is gone I'm sure. I'll wait to see if they do a full reset before signing up again.

I agree. With the asinine wait times after every little move, it requires way too much attention to play. I think I'll take this hack as a sign to give up.
