Server #1930 PvE Griefing & Harrassment

pc

#62

It doesn’t prevent building like they said they would do either. So now the Obelisk is a death trap for anyone who teleports there, and no new players can access it. How much griefing will be allowed before you take control of your game Funcom?

@Tascha This has still not been addressed, they can build in and around the Obelisk and have sealed it from being used. Your teleport system, in your game, on your Official server. You need to do something, seriously. No jokes, no “working on it”, this needs personal intervention from a live Admin. Saber needs to be banned, they aren’t going to give up. You have to realize this, we aren’t just whining because we feel like it. We need help and you still have not done your part.

i cant name tascha , it says i am a new user…i cant also place link even internal funcom forums ones, please someone help summon community managers! and if possible please bring the URL (sticky) here in support forum.

In extreme cases only, such as players preventing others from entering the game area or preventing other players from playing the game in any other way, we may take action if presented with indisputable proof. These action include removing of structures and can also lead to bans. In extreme cases please use Exploit Hunters 8 to report these issues.

i am pretty sure , this fits into the EXTREMES said in your post, i am quoting the relevant part , so are you going to take action and ban that “Saber” clan ???


#64

bump…

still waiting for officials to get a RESPONSE.of any kind…

whats happening, falls into the extreme exceptions mentioned in tascha sticky …

“In extreme cases only, such as players preventing others from entering the game area or preventing other players from playing the game in any other way, we may take action if presented with indisputable proof.

ARE YOU GOING TO DO SOMETHING OR NOT? ARE YOU GOING TO SAY SOMETHING OR NOT???


#65

I have given up asking for support, have proven many times saber has cheated, they allow saber do whatever they want to, dont see anyone telling them to get a private server no point even getting mad. They now can cheat with decay bug so no chance in hell there stuff will ruin around my base. Which is sad cause its proven its a cheat. They do what they want when they want run off as many people as they want and funcom and devs dont care. Tired of being lied to 6 times promised they would be taken off the server. No use getting mad or upset just have 0 respect or believing anything this company says.Pretty sad a company says what u want to hear so that you stop asking and very very sad they rather keep 2 sick individuals and lose 60 plus so far


#66

If people are using racial slurs you should report it to the police as a hate crime. I don’t think its acceptable for funcom to throw their hands in the air and say they can’t do anything. They quite clearly CAN do something but don’t want the additional cost.


#67

i would truly like to hear them aknowledge this particular issue is known. (blocking and disrupting the whole server) , and ideally understand HOW its going to be dealt.

thank you.


#68

I’ve got to say: I don’t even play on this server and I have heard so much on these forums about this and the clan ‘saber’. It sounds like a really bad situation with no solution that the players can leverage on their own.

Funcom I think this may be a good example to look at to drive some sort of policy creation or code change from you. There needs to be some way for players to deal with this if you do not have the bandwidth/staffing.


#69

This was beyond racial slurs, this was signs posting kill americans, 911 is great, rape is awsome etc


#70

To my surprise and actually made me speechless, 10 servers have decided with there fellow players backing them and another 2 waiting on 4 more tribes as I agree rules are made to be followed. We do what we have to do and not telling people to do this. But they are this weekend going to block all oblesks on there servers, as well block all points of interest until funcom does something about this type of behavior.

I appreciate the emails, it is not my intention to cause the company more work but i agree official servers are why people join feeling they are moderated. Yes the world is filled with alot of racial slurs that is why we game to have fun, laugh, cry build amazing things, make new friends it is our escape. Conan is a great game has issues bugs etc and yes trolls but people have taken it up a notch . Thank you for your support not just as a gamer but as a human being, makes me happy my kids are growing up in a world where people still believe in human ethics and morals.


#71

Funcom could and should help with this issue by making signs destructable by anyone.
It doesn’t stop people posting racist signs but they will get sick of doing it if you are able to destroy them as they are placed.


#72

and what can be do with the blocked-death trap- obelisk ? now that decay timers went up…

what hate is they (funcom) does not fullfil their own statements…

“In extreme cases only, such as players preventing others from entering the game area or preventing other players from playing the game in any other way, we may take action if presented with indisputable proof. These action include removing of structures and can also lead to bans. In extreme cases please use Exploit Hunters 8 to report these issues.”

what can we do with the paragraph above? it came from a sticky from a official funcom employee…


#73

For over 2 months people have posted on forums, took screenshots, pleaded with the devs for help and so on.
But a few things are clear, Funcom cares about Money not the player. They allow exploits and don’t say they don’t they do they have been given screenshot after screenshot. They post rules which devs don’t even have the tenacity to respond and give the players the respect the players give to them.

While this is a game and suppose to be fun there are morals and ethics even ingame one should follow. trolls will be trolls but certain things should not be allowed, jokes about rape and 911 is not called for and funcom should respect the players not because they lost loved ones but respect for human decency.
4 years from now 5 years people that are loyal will remember the game not because of how fun or how good the graphics are but because so many people quit the game rather then take the free time they have log onto a game where those who break rules, have no decency get treated the same respect as someone who does have morals and good ethics. So no use asking for help no use asking devs to step in the first sign was them allowing sign after sign being posted and it took the players to remove them.

I love gaming, i love building new friendships and pushing myself to see if i can beat a game but most of all. I like knowing that the game i spent money on the people who made it know what gaming is all about…

In the real world hatred is spread everyday we game to get that break from it, well now it is in gaming and when the company that made it has to say what people wanna hear so they stop posting (example lying and saying saber would be banned and you can block players in chat) none which have come true. My apologies for the speech , but as a gamer and human being i shouldnt have to move to a private server or go to a unoiffical server to play a game . The makers should have the respect to not tolerate such bs in the first place. Its sad when you log on each time thinking great what did they do now, who quit the game , which friend left.

@Umborls It’s been about a month now since I asked you for help on our server. How much time does it take to blacklist two players on a server? Five to ten minutes, at most, out of two hundred and fourty man hours. You have their names, you know which server they are on, you have evidence of “extreme circumstances” (ie, preventing players from using an Obelisk and making it a death trap to those who were able to access it before) in which you are needed to intervene, you have proven exploits used by these two people provided by Lucifer (using another player’s base to refresh their own decay timer) that I have witnessed and screenshotted as well, and yet all you’ve done is taken those few minutes to stall and provide statements that say nothing and do less.

As a Support team, you’ve provided me (and the entire server I play on) with no support in all of this time, and at least one player from another server for over nine months. I’d say you’re not doing your job. So if you’re not Support, who is? Can you point me to an employee that will provide support?

You and I both know that trying to address it solely with in-game mechanics is a fool’s errand. Any and every exploit and bug that can be used will be used, much like your company getting away with not providing support for “Official” servers. It’s not a free service, your customers paid for that. Some that bought the game for the purpose of playing online multiplayer rather than Singleplayer and Co-op.

You’ll always be behind the curve trying to develop new systems, always one step behind those who are using your game to grief others because they know you won’t lift a finger to get rid of them. You’ve given them that confidence by preferring to ignore it rather than address it from the start and work it into your budget.

I wish it was different and I could depend on you for support as your titles suggest, I really do.


#75

i cant name other users becasue the forums thinks i am a new user … please call @ tascha… (sadly i cant do it)

i have sent another email to exploit hunters following the steps provided by tascha over the sticky she posted here , and i quote again :

"In extreme cases only, such as players preventing others from entering the game area or preventing other players from playing the game in any other way, we may take action if presented with indisputable proof. These action include removing of structures and can also lead to bans. In extreme cases please use Exploit Hunters 8 to report these issues."

do we need to send you dozens of reports containing the same text in order to get proper attention? it looks like one or two reports are not enough… i will keep reporting this every 2 days, and starting next week i will do it every day… if no attention is given , then i will start sending reports every 12 hours. until i start sending reports every hour (3 weeks from now)

thank you. and i wish you wonderful vacations to all.

well said couldn’t have said it any better myself and if it comes to it, every person i know who games will send in reports as well. It is sad players join offical for one reason believing that it is moderated and if not then tell us before we spend hundreds of hours on it. Be offical or not allowing 2 players who are beyond toxic to play this and lose how many players so far? doesnt make sense i am trying my hardest how a company feels 2 players are more important then 60 they have lost plus the regulars that put in 100 a week.

Your company have been offered many solutions and volunteers even people who will moderate for you and nothing yet this company feels its best to lie? how many times have i been told they would be banned, taken cared of, prove exploits they will be banned and we have shown it. You have players so compassionate about the game and tell about exploits issues etc this is what makes a company make it big listening and helping the players. Everyday new players join and everyday players leave. why? same thing we have told you for months. Saber logs in refreshs and leaves hell they exploited so bad i refresh there bases because i live near them and if i break my base then i lose everything that i have built up. Even though have difference views on things with Palm521 i agree with him and what he is saying cause its true. This is happening on other servers i get emails from people stating same thing. One thing that happens in gaming is people talk … You have a great game great players who help now help back and allow more great people to see why this game is great rather then lose them. Thanks


#77

still waiting for SUPPORT Response… regarding this issue.

solution is simple and is already in the sticky posted by tascha regarding griefing…

“In extreme cases only, such as players preventing others from entering the game area or preventing other players from playing the game in any other way, we may take action if presented with indisputable proof. These action include removing of structures and can also lead to bans. In extreme cases please use Exploit Hunters 17 to report these issues.”

just enforce and take action using your own rules, please do something.


#78

They have been given proof over and over and over and over promises made this tribe would be removed. Seems they rather lose players then save the loyal ones. But if they were going through this be a differnt story. Sad exploiters can do what they want when they want when all they would have to do is come remove the tribe.


#79

bump.

just looking for official word… regarding this issue.

thanks .


#80

good morning…

still waiting for some sort of official response. i am not sure if funcom is following up with this… i dont want to think they dont care about problems caused by poor coding. ( OBELISK needs to be marked as NO BUILD ZONES)

just a friendly reminder.

“In extreme cases only, such as players preventing others from entering the game area or preventing other players from playing the game in any other way, we may take action if presented with indisputable proof. These action include removing of structures and can also lead to bans. In extreme cases please use Exploit Hunters 8 to report these issues.”

is this statement above still holds true?

Thanks.

They are on vacation. Give it a few weeks sad to say.
