FieldsofLove Becomes 4th Royal On Dep To Make 50, First Prince

Wow, sometimes we think something will never happen. When it's just too hard. Those times call for great determination and a boatload of hope to go on. However my friends, sometimes dreams do come true, and on August 3, 2003 it did for one lucky prince by the name of FieldsOfLove. With 650+ hp and a host of +6-9 items FieldsOfLove is the first level 50 prince on the Depardieu server.

FieldsOfLove, or Fields as we call him is from Katy, Texas and has been 49 for almost a year. Hell I remember when me and him were both racing to 50. We at Lineage Compendium (maybe just me) would like to shower you with embarressment.

So don't blush, and get ready, you got another two years to Death Knight. Good luck, and remember, you too can level up, even if it takes you a year with 20+ deaths. Good luck Fields!

wow i must have been FIRST South Carolina Resident, who is in the US Navy to hit 50 go make new news column just for that unique fact!

or not

or u can be sane and just say under same column, another lvl 50 prince(ss)

but because of bias of reporter towards friend who hit 50, a brand new column was created for his friend. This is why I do not report anything to LC, new drops such as the normal mop that drops rosc and my hitting lvl 50 months ago because for 1: the staff is biased, 2 the information will never make it to the appropriate page.

This is why most people don't report to LC

This is why I call you babo in FV yesterday dlirk

in all cases, the answer is because its true.

It is official, Dlirk is an idiot.

Gender doesn't affect any aspect of this game, (except princess is a little harder to click in a siege), so there is no reason to differentiate between the two when it comes to accomplishments.

DLirk's post downplays the accomplishments of three other people on the server, so that he can exaggerate the accomplishments of one of his friends.

I think it is rude, and unprofessional as a reporter. If I were CC, aerith or pepper, I would be seriously offended. (I already am a little offended.)

Someone needs to fix this post, its stupid. Congradulations Dlirk on using FoL's accomplishment to confirm just how stupid you are.

#13, guess it doesn't hurt to read #11's post. He was wondering how so many people have done the quest with so few level 50 prince(sse)s. The answer I think is the princes don't complete their quest but the knights do. Some of the elves and mages might not so they can get other knights 50+ quests done I think... If everyone paired off and completed quest on first try, there would be a good 40-50 knights without a mage, elf and prince team for them.. hehe

They'd be sitting around waiting for me to hit 50! Meaning they wouldn't get to do the quest until 5 years later ;D

Who knows, maybe he will become first ROYALTY (prince or princess!) to hit 52 ;) and make up for his time at 49 ^^

Since I was supposed to hit 50 over 8 months ago...he promised me a little interview type thing. I had some connection problems, both my connection and NC and it spread over a year. That was before he was anything close to being my friend. He heard I was gonna hit 50 and wanted to interview me.

Congrats Fields!!! Good job man ^^

And for you idiots who dont understand, Fields is the first Prince character on dep to reach 50. No, hes not the first Royal. He a Prince, not Princess.

Secondly, there is a difference in male/female characters. I and many others have tested, female characters have a faster action speed than male characters.

Female elves shot at a faster rate that male.
Female mages cast at a faster rate than male.
Female royals swing at a faster rate than male
Female knights swing at a faster rate than male.

YES, there is a difference. Our test have proven this true.

Again, major congrats to Prince FieldsOfLove !!!!

No, here's the point. It's a FANSITE. They can do whatever the hell they want. If you don't like, don't visit. I don't see how you can complain, seeing as everyone is always whining that there's not enough news. And the Prince IS different. He swings slightly slower than a Princess.

We should also commend the Princesses who did it before him, no need to make such an ugly stink about it, plz guys. It would've been SO easy to just mention that in frontpage instead of giving everyone a jump... respect should always be given where it's due.

Neocross, nobody said FoL's accomplishment was downplayed.

It is the 3 other people who were lvl 50 weeks/months before him. Their accomplishments are downplayed.

The fact of the matter is, Dlirk's decision to make a distinction between the genders, and suggest that FoL was the first ANYTHING is inconsiderate to the efforts of other players.

Oh well, the fact that Dlirk has to live such a depressing and uneventful life is punnishment enough for his ill-considerations. (read his blog ~ its depressing.)

Drathen: there is absolutly no difference between a prince and a princess.

There is no difference between the male and female genders of any class for that matter.

Cheebizz if femal classes swung faster nobody would make any male characters. There are lineage players Infinatly more hardcore than you are (Kusang, Zef, BBKnights...) If there was indeed a difference, these people would have started as female knights.

The only reason the other lvl50 Royals are female is because they are harder to see and click durring a siege. (the sprite is more slender)

It kind of hurts that I have to post justification for anything, after all we do around here. :(

Here is a list of all the first gender/classes on Dep and their front page news links.

first lv 50 dep princess: http://www.lineagecompendium.com/addcomment.php?newsid=892
first lv 50 dep female knight: http://www.lineagecompendium.com/addcomment.php?newsid=499
first lv 50 dep male knight: http://www.lineagecompendium.com/addcomment.php?newsid=360
first lv 50 dep female elf: BoOBBeans (Taera tried to do an interview, but never finished)
first lv 50 dep male elf: http://www.lineagecompendium.com/addcomment.php?newsid=891
first lv 50 dep female mage: ZRiverZ (also have not been able to interview from front page)
first lv 50 dep male mage: http://www.lineagecompendium.com/addcomment.php?newsid=694

I mean, I don't know what to say. Some of you accusing us of being biased or dishonest? Are you people serious? We do this for free, in our spare time - we have jobs, schools, families, lives, friends just like everyone else -- we're not little slave monkeys for you to piss on.

I hope none of the people who contribute to LC take any offense by the comments made by some of the posters in this thread. I, personally, appreciate all the work that everyone else does, and I know that there are many out there who also appreciate it. Pay no mind to the jackasses who have nothing better to do than to complain about volunteers.

first lv 50 loa prince: none
first lv 50 loa princess: none
first lv 50 loa female knight: http://www.lineagecompendium.com/news.php?section=spotlight&newsid=39
first lv 50 loa male knight: Devil
first lv 50 loa female elf: Soda
first lv 50 loa male elf: Guess
first lv 50 loa female mage: Meilan
first lv 50 loa male mage: IronChef

We obviously need to work on our LoA interviews, and I definitely have to apologize to XYunaX and Girlfriend for not giving them their proper credit.

Even after 487 people in the Hall of Fame, we still give everyone 48 hours in the quicknews (and there are 33 people on the list to be posted still). We don't get a single thing for doing this, but we do it so people who hit level 50 have a little prize. It's the LC level 50 bonus. We try our hardest.

I am honest enough to admit we made errors (above), however, the point is that we have always been honest, and we have always done what we can to give people credit. Are any of the naysayers "honest" enough to admit they misjudged us?

hey foochild just so ya know, Pepper, Aereth and CCGirl all had interviews also. so maybe the royal class is just the only one left worth getting an interview for.

i also was promised an interview when i hit 50, because i was lvl 49 last august. however, due to reasons similar to field's, i didnt lvl until like april 30. 8 months to gain a lvl. however, i refused the interview when i hit 50 because i forsaw faggots making similar comments as in this thread.


EDIT:

oh and yoshiki dont speak plz sharp and foochild used to use same board account on lin (named RadMax) so it would be no surprise if they used same LC board name (or whichever they feel like speaking under).

Sharp is banned from this site, it would be impossible for him to post :)

I'll repost what I said before:

Take the reporter on his lvl 50 quest, get an interview, it's asinine.
You said so yourself, "Dlirk insists there is a difference" and some of us know why, maybe he made the arangement ahead of time, who cares, it's unprofessional, and no one thinks any higher of the compendium for posting such clearly exclusive articles.

debating this statement would be like denying that Dlirk has a depressing life.

go eat some candy or talk to a female once in a while, whatever makes you happy :)

1) There is no account that starts with Sharp banned from this site. If his account has some other name, please send me an email as to "Sharp"s board name. If you are making this up, please stop.

2) I agree that if we posted FieldsOfLove interview just because he helped Dlirk complete his level 50 quest, that is completely unprofessional. However, the reason is that he is the first level 50 PRINCE on Dep. Tell me where the problem is with this:

I, amer, who does not have a level 50 character on Dep server, decided to post FieldsOfLove on the front page because Dlirk reminded me that he was the first Prince on Dep. I also admit that I, personally, have made errors in the past where 3 of the 16 "first male/female class on server" have not been posted to the front page, which is my stated intention. That's why he is there.

No reporter can post to LC without the express approval of amateras (who does not have a level 50 character on Dep), BigPope (who is on vacation and does not currently play on Dep) or myself, which, as above, is not level 50. Please explain where I went wrong, I'm dying to understand what the problem is here.

If the problem is that you are having some kind of fight with FieldsOfLove on Dep, please just admit it and stop dragging this website through the mud because of a personal grudge.

If you agree with all of the above, I think you owe everyone an apology.

maybe if someone from sol became a reporter, they could interview CCGirl, but if Dlirk doesnt like the person, why the fvk should he interview them? its not his "Duty" to interview everyone. most interviews are done because they know the person... if its done by an enemy, its bound to get down-played....

Second: Why is it that always ppl start to complain? If u didnt had an interview when u reached lvl - live with it! There are other, more important things in this world. Maybe u and/or your friends had to convince a LC-reporter to make an interview .. which obviously didn't happen
Third: Keep up the good work LC :>

Thanks for pointing out all the other news articles where lvl50 players have been announced. I couldn't find any of them that actually made a distiction between the character being a male or female.

Lets analyize how the writers have chosen to reffer to the person being interviewed.

First, Dlirk: "First Level 50 Prince on Dep!"

First lvl 50 Princess - Ken: "XYunaX is the latest level 50 princess."
First lvl 50 Knight - Ken: "Girlfriend hits level 50 on Ken"
First lvl 50 Elf (US/KEN): "Bebi hits 50" - she deserved a better title...
First lvl 50 Mage Ken- "Kurei3 hits level 50!"

I could continue... The problem I had with the post is that Dlirk says "FIRST LEVEL 50 PRINCE ON DEP", in big bold letters across the top of the post. It seems like a weak attempt to up-play FoL's accomplishment. In doing so, it downlplays the accomplishments of other players. The post doesn't even mention that there were 3 other people who preceeded him in making lvl 50 royals.

Amer - you play ken server. There is a HUGE struggle on dep between the two 'sides' to outperform the other side in all aspects of the game. (being the first group to do the lvl50 quest was very important to the aliance... thats why they did it so hastefully.)

Dlirk's distiction, while you may be unable to recognize it, is bias. He is trying to make it seem like his team is setting some sort of bar on dep.

Maybe the problem lies in the fact there there is no real name difference between a male/female knight,elf,mage (knight/knightess, mage/magesss...) I don't know. But in any case the post should, at a minimum, contain the line "FoL is the latest of 4 lvl 50 royals on dep."

In any event, I see he made some sort of change. It wasn't exactly as appropriate as what he whispered me in the game to change it to, but whatever. Everyone who said it is right. This is a amateur fansite provided to me for free. I shouldn't expect any sort of professionalism out of it. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into regurgitating what the korean fansites learn for us, and I too hope that nobody took serious offence to what i've said in any of my posts.

f00, there are swing rate differences between male and female. it's been tested and posted here on LC, and i've seen it for myself. most of the time, though, it's not a big enough difference to really matter.

congrats fields, i remember when you started that prince :P

amer why do u even give a fvck? dont give a shit what these sorry bastards think about what you put on here its YOUR site and if they dont like it they can go make thier OWN lineage site and put whatever the heck they want. We all still love the work you do for us dont let these little ignorant idiots make you think any different. I think its right putting him on the front page and even if its not who cares man. Dont listen to these punks. you shouldnt even have to explain yourself you got the best lineage site around. better than the official. And to all the reporters who take thier own time to do these things, same goes for you too. We appreciate the work you do for us and dont let these sorry ingrates let you think different.

Lutharic #81: There is no difference. Get your head out of your butt and stop entertaining the idea that there is a difference. The mere fact that it would defeat the purpose of having a male class is evidence enough of this fact.


DontSuckOut #82: Nobody is questioning what amer decides to put on the front page. Some people are upset because Dlirk decided to credit FoL with being the "first" to accomplish something. Is it so much to ask that people at least read, or god forbid, try to understand the conversation before they attempt to provide their input?

Sorry - had to weigh in on this matter.

Ok, well if there is difference between male and female then how about cha and con princes? Lol fields is to be commended for levelling, like any other player that makes it to 50. But he did it with no pledge and it took him 2 years. He's a con prince - that's a knight basically without the braves.

So I say to Ameritas and Dlirk - hey - why stop there? Let's create more categories. How about First Knight to 50 using a mace, or first elf to 50 using an orc bow o.0

There are millions of differences between characters, playing styles and equipment - it is what makes every one and INDIVIDUAL in the game. The least of these differences in the game, however, is the the difference between male and female. Go ahead, I dare you to argue that. There are only four classes (this week) in Lineage: Knight, Elf, Mage and Prince - this male /female Level 50 post thing is bogus.

And, although i agree with F00, Dlirks story on Fields was not an alliance vs antialliance thing. Hell, Dlirk was ATTACKING anti-alliance at WW siege 3 nights ago.

What it was however, was Dlirk posting his buddy on the boards for all to see. Truth be told, I don't know Dlirk all that well, but I'm not liking what I see these days.

F00Child: Dlirk might be biased. He is a person with opinions, just like you. I don't think it appropriate or "professional" to rewrite his article.

As I said before, there is one reason why, and no one on this entire rant has come even close to showing me what I did wrong: If someone (and this applies to anyone) comes to me and says "Hi, I know of a player named X who hit level 50, he is the first Y to do so on Dep, ever. You have posted all the other first Y to hit 50, I think you should post this one too." I will say yes. I now state this for the world to know - if you come to me and say that a player is the first gender+class to hit level 50 on that server and they give me an interview, it will be on the front page. I am not the Lineage server, I don't know these things when they happen, I don't know everyone's race and class just by hearing their name, I have to be reminded sometimes.

And now, an excerpt from the conversation:
[08/05 01:08:08] dlirk: I think we should give fields front page
[08/05 01:08:14] dlirk: He's first dep prince to 50
[08/05 01:08:44] amer: what about pepper?
[08/05 01:08:47] amer: or the others?
[08/05 01:08:52] dlirk: princess
[08/05 01:08:53] amer: he's 4th, isn't he?
[08/05 01:09:06] amer: you're serious?
[08/05 01:09:11] dlirk: yes
[08/05 01:09:33] dlirk: he's first prince

Also, on the speed matter. Prince and Princess, when not morphed, have different speeds (all genders do, and it's based on weapon -- check the Morph guide). That is NOT the reason, that is just a correction I wanted to make.

ghostmachine: "Ameritas" <- I don't know who this is. Do you mean amer or amateras? We're two different people.

"There are millions of differences between characters, playing styles and equipment.. Go ahead, I dare you to argue that"
No problem! Glad you asked :) Gender and level are the only thing 100% of people who don't mind being announced will show. With most people, it ends there. How can I know who the first WIS knight is if no one tells me their stats? It just takes one person to not tell me to create enough confusion for me not to know who is first. Thus, I stick with what can be shown: gender can be looked up on LinWeb, and level 50 is shown by morph.

The problem is that a lvl 50 prince is nothing new, "gender" means absolutely nothing in this game.

Fields turns 50,, after a while he does the 50 quest with Dlirk and the next day has a spotlight on the front. Far greater things have been accomplished in the game with far less emphasis put on them.

It's similar to doing a special report on a monitor because he gave you a million adena, while the rest do what they're supposed to. It's unprofessional.

DarkestElfOnDep: If the reason was because FieldsOfLove gave me something, I agree, that would be unprofessional. I don't know why you guys keep bringing Dlirk into this. Reporters cannot post to the site FOR THIS EXACT REASON. However, some of you conspiracy theorists just think everyone is out to get you.

I got nothing for posting this. Oh wait, that's not true.. I did get alot out of posting this. I got alot of misdirected insults, alot of people telling me that the site is dishonest, alot of accusations and insults.

The point, Amer - thanks for the correction, is that gender is a meaningless difference within a class and therefore is not really a significant reason for you to post on your front page. There are many more significant differences between characters, whether you can determine them or not - and thats a whole different discussion - which constitute more notable events. Gender levelling is certainly not a notable event, I don't care how Dlirk spins it. The post is even more irritating given the headline that initially appeared with the story that, while factually accurate, is well out of context given the actual importance of the event. Perhaps if the headline had read "FieldsofLove Becomes 4th Royal On Dep To Make 50, First Prince" people on this board would be objecting less. But Dlirk deliberately choose to argue the point of differentiating male versus female in the game - which, in my opinion, makes it open season when it comes to questioning the professionalism and objectivity of his work. But that's just my opinion - and maybe a couple of others on this board.

ghostmachine: I changed the headline, and it won't change anything. The people who complain think that Dlirk has been "bribed" to make a front page post, and my point is that he cannot post to the front page. Only I can. The end.

Now, if you think the news is useless information, then there are also 1788 other news where people say "who cares" and "why does this matter?" That's fine, I respect your right to post that you don't give a crap and why. This is a discussion place after all.

The problem is if you accuse LC of being dishonest. If you don't care, fine. if you think we posted this for any other reason that because he is actually the first male Royal to hit 50 and we have always tried to post the first gender+class to hit level 50 and NOTHING MORE, then you (not you, personally, but people who think this) have another thing coming.

Never once did I say or infer that Dlirk had been bribed or somehow coerced into trying to post that story. Nor did I ever accuse the site of being dishonest. Please don't turn this discussion into something it is not. And I also fully understand that you are the one posting articles - not him.

What I am saying is that Dlirk and Fields are good buddies and that Dlirk pushed you, by your own recount, to post that story. He did so under the guise implying that a Prince (vs Princess) levelling to 50 is somehow a noteworty event. That is rubbish - whether you or he agree with me or not.

My point has been from the beginning has been that gender/class reaching lvl 50 means nothing. It is NOT a newsworthy event. Posting it as such detracts from the hard efforts of the first people in the class to actually make the level. It also detracts from many, many other newsworthy events which you DO publish everyday at LC. Thats why I come here to LC and am a regular reader, if not poster.

Sorry ghostmachine, all my "you" was meant in the general you sense.

My justification is simply that I posted this for one reason alone, which is because he is the first male of his class on Dep. If you don't think that's something I should post in the future, believe me, I heard you already. After all, we started moving all the level 50+ posts to the Spotlights section by popular demand in the first place.

Despite that, I have already stated my intention to post the first class+gender to the front page, as I hope to for LoA and the Dark Elf class, so now I have to wrestle with taking back my promise. You might have to endure a few more posts that are "not newsworthy", in your opinion.

Amer, I was not aware that DLirk did not have front-page privilages.

In any event, I hope you didn't confuse anything I said here as being upset that he is on the first page. I could care less what goes on the front page, its material for me to read from work without having to click through tons of sections.

I just didn't appreciate the article because it's title trivialized previous player's accomplishments in an attempt, by DLirk, to make FoL's accomplishment seem more important.

i dont see how you dont understand yet.. they post the first person to reach lvl 50 for both male and female. if you dont think thats newsworthy than dont read it wtf is your problem. Wasting amers precous time when he could be doing something useful shame on you. I dont understand why nobody complained when he posted the other like 13 ppl or whatever. people choose now... Well i think its newsworthy to post both genders to reach 50. There is no difference at all except that one is male and one is female and as a lin fan, i like to know things like this. Who is first male and female. it might not be important to you but some of us just like to knowand i think thats why amer was posting it. For people who are curious about these things. Now if you dont like it dont read it plain and simple. AMER CAN DO WHAT HE WANTS!

And how the heck do you know that dlirk was trying to persuade amer to do it jus cause fol is his friend.... Whts with this contravercy? he jus posted the convo with dlirk and says they posted cause they posted all the other genders to reach 50 so y not this one?

AND IF YOU DONT LIKE IT, YOU CAN STICK TO WWW.LINEAGE.COM FOR YOUR LINEAGE NEWS! WE DONT LIKE PEOPLE WHO QUESTION AMER ROUND HERE!

Well I just had to say something,
First I would like to offer my congrats to Fields the FIRST LVL 50 PRINCE of the ROYAL CLASS ,
Second I would like to apologize to him and the nice people who have taken the time out of thier lives to create a web site that my husband and I have used so often. I feel sad that people feel the need to be so rude to Fields.
I have played the Prince character and must admit it is a very hard char to keep alive. I feel that if you have nothing nice to say about a article about someone else reaching 50 you should say nothing at all.
Foo I find it interesting that not one of the three PRINCESSES have posted anything to lead any of us to bleieve that thier acomplishments where in any way degraded by the post for Fields.
Also after reading how quick you were to openly be hatefull to the reporter I am lead to bleieve that you must hold a grudge of some kind, please deal with that outside of someones lvl 50 congrats post... it is not the place .. thank you all for listening
congrats again to Fields ..lenna

If you have a problem with not being highlighted or the way someone was highlighted in the past, don't wait until now to bring it up, especially during someone elses moment, bring it up when it happens.

Most importantly, CONGRATS Fields!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS - I love it when an idiot contradicts himself in the same sentence,

FOOChild - "Gender doesn't affect any aspect of this game, (except princess is a little harder to click in a siege)"

So gender doesn't affect ANY aspect or it does affect clicking ability. Which is it.
