Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / TWS Penalized

You could say that but using an alt to attack your main is mostly beneficial to yourself and seems to be quite a common practice with a lot of guild and guildless players. Not exactly something that can be enforced so easily as it would affect a hell of a load of players. Besides, chat would then just be full of people asking other people to attack them all the time lol :P

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / TWS Penalized

In the spirit of trying to just get on with things I would like to point out the great work that TWS’s raiders have put in this week. I may not like the fact that the merger with FH helped but fair play to the raiders. They worked hard and have taken the top spot as a result. Hopefully we can at least try and close the gap this weekend :P

Also, apologies to those who were involved or caught up in my outburst in chat a couple of nights ago.

Some of you wouldn’t have known but I have had a hell of a bad time over these past few months (hence the lack of activity) and I let a lot of rage and upset boil over about something that I wouldn’t normally rage about.

Well done to TWS on the raids and once again, sorry for the outburst, and bring on next week :P

Topic: Chronicles of Herenvale / TWS Penalized

Marine, I’m going to make something quite clear here. You say about how TPC’s MO is to spend money to be at the top. You seem to forget one thing. I was in TWS before I was in TPC. I have not spent anywhere near as much money on the game while i’ve been in TPC as I did in TWS. Most of us with the higher scores in TPC don’t need to spend money to get those scores and most of the rest of us just plain don’t want to spend money on the game (see anupams post).

As for no other guild being threatened with action. May I once again point out that it was because TWS “tested what the limits of abuse were and went beyond them” (quote once again from TheRealJackBlood’s post).
This is referring to the fact that there was action taken to reduce alt abuse by raising a cap to stop below level 50 alts attacking your guild members. If it had been left there it would have been fine.

Problem was that some members of TWS (no idea who, but it must have involved at least one of Umar, Turin or Sazh cos they needed to accept the applications into the guild) then took it upon themselves to let low level alts into the guild so that these alts could attack them instead.
That’s deliberately going above and beyond to circumvent a rule created to reduce alt abuse, and as such, is what got TWS penalized.

As far as the #1 spot was concerned I was lined up for a good race to #1 PVP spot this weekend so there was still a chance for us to get that as we were keeping the scores close so to say that it was done just to avoid us losing both spots is not really a fair point.

Besides, a counter argument could be used here cos TWS used alt-bashing to keep their #1 PVP spot for a long time. There’s a lot of complaining going on now that they won’t have their unbeaten record. Works both ways in that respect.

My conclusion stays the same as it did before.
I agree that something needed to be done.
I believe a warning could have been handed out before such action was taken but that’s not for us to decide.
And I agree that the rules need straightening out to make it clear for everyone.

I do also think that now it is done there is no point in going on about it anymore cos it won’t change what happened. It’s time to wait for the rules to be straightened out and just get on with playing.

Here’s my view. A lot of games don’t allow alt abuse and there are repercussions if it’s found to have been used. It’s called boosting and it’s something that can even get you banned in some games.

As far as penalising both TWS and TPC, the point has been made that TWS “tested what the limits of abuse were and went beyond them” (quote from TheRealJackBlood’s post) by adding lower level guild members so that those alts below level50 could be used to attack them instead. The difference here is how far TWS went to get around the rule.

While I agree that something needed to be done, and i’m happy to see that something has been done, I do also feel that a warning could have been given before points were deducted to give TWS chance to change their ways. If such behaviour continued then a points deduction would have followed. However, it is not for me to decide what the punishment is. That’s the developers decision.

That being said, it was only a matter of time before something happened to stop alt abuse and hopefully it’ll make the game more accessible to newer players and newer guilds as it will be about who has the better and more active players rather than who has the most alt suicide accounts.
