Avalon has been around for a long time, there are few os us around now that remember the days of direct dial and hostplay, but those that will remember well the limited 20 macros that we had.
Imagine a fight where chant equilibrium was written in full each time, Imagine a fight where Sorcerers summoned demons with frantic typing, Mages sketched with equal dexterity. Evenings at Hostplay were fun frantic events, with curses ringing from the ceiling as
mistyped spells cursed the caster with a ride on the ship. Triggers were un heard of, chained commands a mere myth, and the true combatant skills shone forth. These are the days of the truly skilled and unfortunatly, they are missed by few.
Yes, Avalon has changed a lot, but I still believe and I'm sure a lot of the older of us do, that those that rely on triggers and fancy commands will never attain the true heights that most of us desire when we turn our gaze towards Olympus.
