    I suggest to the players of Siege Perilous to not sale or buy well known
    old developed accounts to other players.

    How does anyone know who is who? It is not enough for the seller to post
    on this forum that their well known name is under other players control.
    The sellers should accept that they are responcible to the actions of others
    who use these well known named accounts as posers.

    The deception by others undermine the trust of the community.
    But, the game allows deception...so the sellers just need to restrain
    themselves from selling old accounts.

    Or just make sure you do a name change before you sell account??

    Name change + EA transfer service would eliminate most of the account related "scam" problems, but that also adds around $50 USD cost to an account sale, and most people are unwilling to do that when they can just trade for game gold, with the risk.

    I actually think Blizzard's policy against account trading, and sharing is a good one although they can't enforce it 100%, they do a pretty good job considering the number of accounts they are dealing with.

    That's never gonna happen you know why? Because people are greedy for items and gold and they'll buy from know scammers, then why wouldn't they sell to scammers either? And if their greedy for gold and items then MONEY for accounts is a great deal! Me personally, i blacklist scammers.

    I'm actually slightly surprised this is a problem: aren't most prominent people in a guild? (I'm new back, so I may well be totally wrong). I also assume that many trades, and many identity issues, happen when an account is traded between people in different guilds...

    So if you see someone with a guild tag they shouldn't have, or without one they should have, then you could at least ask...
     
  6. Absolutely Yaha, and the scam that was perpetrated yesterday was committed by someone even I thought could be trusted. He thinks it's just a big joke however. Pathetic.

    Newsflash: 95% of the Siege population is pathetic.

    *edit* Since the other thread seems to be gone, I'll say it again. Siege justice is a joke because with 2-3 weeks of the (alleged) scam, the (alleged) scammer is doing business again with impunity. Stratics (*not* mods) protects them by warranting post deletions instead of moderator editing of names. Therefore, any (alleged) wrongdoing is swept under the rug, so to speak. Even were it not, due to greed most of the population will deal with these (alleged) crooks anyway within a few weeks.

    One word. Puffy. And watch, now my post will be deleted.

    If players want to scam someone, they will find a way no matter what you do.
    I love freedom, and hate the system to control everything.

    You can't protect you against everything
     
  9. The best protection against naivety is experience, but it's still bollocks to go around scamming, whether you dislike the victim or not, that's no excuse at all. It's up to the honest players to make sure it's stopped and the scammers blacklisted or at least named, then others won't be so naive next time. It's fooking disgusting.

    Anyway, I have saved an icq log from this morning should anyone want to see it, can't post it here though.

    This is just a suggestion...true enough some people will break the trust game.
    Also, beware... some games will go away...

    I always feel the end justifies the means. If this is what it takes to get rid of a pest, so be it.

    PM it, I like to keep up with Siege daily goings-on, even if I'm only about 5% actively playing lately.

    You are speaking of me. I know you are from our conversation on ICQ. I think it is wonderful that Diablo was robbed, i did not rob him and i cannot do anything to help him.

    PM rec'd, and all I can say is that I stand by my previous statements.

    Basically, people suck

    Only in your paranoid mind is buying and selling accounts a problem...
     
  22. I'll tell you where I will post the log Roland, I'll post it on GIL forums, then I won't need to send it more than once. I really am surprised at you.

    Perfect, althought i do not know why you are disapointed in me. I still have done nothing.

    Just give the kid his gold back, what good is the gold if you obtain it in a dishonest way? In the end you will lose 3 times that much in game or maybe even in real life cause karma has no boundries to stay within the Ultima Online walls. Just a warning.

    IBTL.

    I can remember a couple years back when everyone was trying to get all the players to come try siege, i told you guys way back then to be careful what you wished for cuz once all these new players started coming to this shard that things here would surely change. Just take a look around today. This is why you want to keep a tight, close, and limited community. Now what I am seeing is a ripple affect..people getting scammed then turning around and scamming someone else to justify it..and this will spread like the flu. Once the bad apples get inside they ruin all the other good aplles too. *shakes head*

    I think you just ruined your name on Siege, I agree with Ole Cheapy, karma can be a *****, you will learn that the hard way.

    This is not player justice, it is scamming no matter how you turn it around and who is the target.
     
  27. Alexi

    Though I do see where you're coming from:

    If the perpetrator was trying to be "virtuous" (which I don't think he could have been being by scamming someone) then the gold should find itself donated to a cause, rather than lining his pockets.

    Much more likely they are someone who always wanted to scam, but didn't know how to get away with it -- and now they found a way.

    The message "it's okay to scam someone if you don't like them" sucks.

    I didnt take the dudes money, how did i ruin my name? If i am on the phone with someone telling him I am doing something and he goes and does something with that information I cannot control it. How am I at fault. I did not tell the 3rd party to go to Bucs. I did not tell Diablo to give money to the 3rd party. I wish I saved history on ICQ so I could show you mine and Diablos conversation.

    Ole Cheapy Guest

    Well the fact that you were on the phone with "someone" indicates you and that "someone" are friends, so since that "someone" is your friend and obviously got this kid's gold, why dont you just tell your buddy "someone" to give you the gold and you give the kid the account as you promised and make this whole thing right?

    I read the conversation on White Concil Forums.
    You have been a bad boy lately, so don't be mad at us for not
    believing you at first. I hope it all your gold returns to you Diablo.
    Kinda in shock that JSV would allow such Treachery. Aren't
    they supposed to be the so called good guys?
    Siege is going to hell in a hand basket for sure.
    You need to fix this Roland & Colton before the angry mob comes for your heads ;).
     
  36. Alexi

    Alexi Guest

    Yes, to both.

    And cheapy, and others, please don't think that just because a few bad apples got introduced that means that new players are bad. It's nice to have fresh new faces around occasionally. Just 'cause the occasional one is bad doesn't mean we should try to close our doors.

    To think, everyone thinks this shard is badass, and here we are worrying that it's getting too badass? This, at least, is nice.

    I believe you thought the shard would find it cool, what you did. Then you found out, that was not going to happen and you choose to make up a lie to try to safe your honor. That failed badly.

    No matter how you turn it around, you are the reason Diablo lost 15 mill.
