I just will summarize the real story behind spartacus and ist significance:
Spartacus was a slave and gladiator in the ancient rome. With 78 other gladiators he escaped from his owner and he collected many other slaves from rural areas and finally had a great army under his command threatening the roman empire. First heading for the city of rome they turned away again to escape over the sea to somewhere else, far away from the powers of roman empire (why he did this isn’t known, the scince is arguing about it). The pirates who should have transported him and his troops were bought by the romans, that’s why his ppl couldn’t escape anymore and a big battle took place.
They are sure that Spartacus died in that battle, only 600 slaves survived, but they were cruzified in rome to show the superiority of rome. In a classic movie with an actor called douglas (well I always switch those two douglasses… I mean the older one I guess xD) he survived and was cruzified as well (to meet his woman again to have a final eye contact O.o)
Spartacus is a great example for the power of the week, and the possibilities we all have, even when we are no big fish. A martyrdom for the freedom and equality.
For socialist countries it was one of the highest example for the victory and heroism of proletarians. Well fact is, when u are here in Europe, and you go a little west from hamburg and you ask someone older than 40, the only thing he now about ancient times will be Spartacus for sure xD.
It’s a classic story about david vs goliath, martyrdom for freedom and equality.
So we have to modifiy it a little.
So we have to do something like a situation explanation at the beginning.
JK2 is controlled to a high percentage by only 1 clan called TRE (The Roman Empire). The most of the servers are ruled by them, and they are the admins.
But they are severe abusers. Silencing, sleeping, amslapping, kicking and banning like hell.
But the players are forced to play on their servers, because they are the only full ones xD
Somewhen then the first scene starts like this: a full server, many ppl playing, some ffa, some duels and some talking… (no ownage and lame shit somewhere… a good server)
But then some admins of that big clan connect and start random silencing and amslapping amexploding and stuff. One player says something against it and is BOOM banned O.o
Then we get close look to Spartacus and some others. They are talking about this and they are consulting what to do. (in simulated private chat) but while this discussion one of the admin comes in and says that he uses his ftp pass and such stuff to read their private chat, and he wont bear it on the server and he threatens them with silence and ban. Spartacus can say some last words to his mates, that they shall meet him at a special server (which he doesn’t say that the admins understand, but something like “the place were we last trained the new gk trick” or so xD) and that they shall get as many ppl as they can to join them. and BOOM he gets banned as well.
Next scene they are at that special place in a server. Coming many players (can be freezed bots as well xD) and they have a meeting. Spartacus making big speech. (great music in background) and he is stating all the values of freedom and equality and of reasoned bans and so on. xD big applause from the audience.
Then they head to collect followers by freeing them from the abusing admins. So they head for a new server.
That is the first kewl action scene. First only Spartacus joines the server. 2 admins are there. abusing. Spartacus demands him to stop it. To lay down the admin abuse. To stop the slavery on the TRE servers. They just laugh. Spartacus demands one more and threatens them to be pwned. They just laugh. So Spartacus heading to attack. And as one of the admins say, he will now sleep him, the followers of Spartacus connect and join. BIG PWNAGE 2 ragequits.
Some ppl who were sleeped and silenced before reconnect and big happy and so on.
And of scene.
Now comes a storyteller again. Many victories for Spartacus. But they wont ever be secure as long as they are on TRE servers. But they are only ex-slaves. So no money… :O. so they search the help of pirates.
Pirates have money, and they could make a new server for the Spartacus gang. And the gang will help defend the server from lame attacks. This negotiation will be in short part of that scene. But after Spartacus left the server a TRE appears. And you see how he convinces the pirate of a new plan: they will buy the pirates a whole server where they get admins as well… so they don’t have to pay at all, but will get admins anyway. Only condition: they shouldn’t tell Spartacus that is a TRE payed server…
Trap is there O.o
Big party at Spartacus server. But then a high TRE comes in… and its silence. He and Spartacus have a talk. Spartacus defends the values and promices not to ban TRE if they are peaceful. But then the TRE reveals the trap, that the TRE have admin power as well. Spartacus is shocked. He prevents an abuse war by demanding a clan fight. On that server, no-one shall use admin.
The TRE agrees in believe of the superiority of TRE clan. So the clanfight takes place. (BIIIG action scene)
The Spartacus gang seems to win. The TRE notices. And they abuse it, admin heal, and finally amexplode. The Spartacus gang escapes and capitulates. Spartacus is caught.
Now you have the choice: tragedy ending.
The TRE trashes him. Condemning equality and freedom, praising power and and superiotity and the will of the emperor.
And finally rangebanning Spartacus from all servers.
And it ends with a view over a admin abuse server.
Or happy ending:
spartacus last words will be something like that: I am 17 years old. My birthday is in 3 weeks. I have friends. They are 18 years old. I have a paypal account. They have. Await the morning of the 24th day after this battle, and see a new server at the top of the jk2 server list.
what you think
this is what I thought of when I said to copy a film or a story.
Its no remake of a move… it’s a modified copy.
Inspired by spartacus :O
