    The only reason I post this is because the GM's on pacific should be un-biased, especially if they have an aquantence on a shard.

    There is an 11x15 in Felucca at 32o4's 41o45'w with a vendor named "Tran Scrolls"
    The player marks runes to there house or opens up gates. Waits for a player to buy an item then fields the front of the house leaving the only escape the teleporter inside there house. (you can't teleport passed the fields because your near the house).
    When you make your escape through the teleporter you are stuck in a two tile blocked area with a holes in the roof so you can only see the roof top. The roof top has a bunch of wooden chests above you so you can't use the context menu to eject from your house.
    You can however use the Help button from your paperdoll and click "my character is physically stuck" and eject yourself from the house. Recalling is another option so long as your not flagged (Reflect physical needs to be fixed for flagging btw)

    So far I was able to "save" a couple blue characters allowed them to escape.
    While fighting the feller he runs off to his boat.. so I placed a boat so I could play pirate with him. Left the boat there overnight before I logged out.
    Someone placed a bunch of boats around his house so he could no longer do his tactic of griefing.

    After fighting the feller and killing any blues that came out of the house (not through the house sign but from the "friends only doors"). I chatted with one of the players blue characters that lived in the house.. He told me that he's friends with a gm has their ICQ and all the boats around the house would be removed. I left my boat out cause I was too lazy to pull it in before I went to bed wake up and its gone. I had one boat out there to play pirate with this guy.

    I think GM's should be un-biased against players. I mean if a player pages on griefing tactics and they won't do anything (I didn't page not cause paging over fighting in felucca is dumb) why can this griefer page and remove my boat?

    I don't care about the griefing I'm having fun saving a few bluebies and dying while playing pirate with the house owner. But what gives why did the GM remove my boat.... wasn't even there for 24 hours..... And it was like a screen away from his house!

    GM's Need to stay out of Felucca and let the players dish out their vigilante justice.

    Thats like some of the high ups in one of the really large fel guild on the atlantic shard bragging about having a GM friend that gives his guild all the idocs they want.

    I have to agree with you on this. From my experience, i have noticed that some people get their way with the Pacific GMs and and some people get canned messages. Perhaps they just know how to work the GMs better but there is something seriously afoul there.

    Same with pretty much all GM's it seems, some players get special treatment while everybody else gets the shaft with canned responses or nothing at all...

    Shift Click your character, and select leave house.

    Why not just do that?

    The roof top has a bunch of wooden chests above you so you can't use the context menu to eject from your house.
    shift click is the context menu. That is why you use help stuck or recall.

    Anyways the points not the house trap.. its that if you are a friend of a GM you can wipe out a fleet of boats cause they are near your house.. Or screens from your house.... The explanation of the house trap was a hope that they won't throw the thread out because I'm helping players not get griefed.

    Sounds like the "Feller" was getting a lot more Grief than was being given.

    If I was a gm, I would respond best to pleas that were well worded and to the point not demands or over hyped LeEt Speak from a player infected with " Game rage".


    yup, just saying.

    If you have a complaint against gms you should express it through the proper channels.

    Stratics boards isn't the place to do this.
