Unfair to ban an innocent player.

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Dungeon Explorer, Aug 3, 2008.

  1. I am sorry Dev teams but i do not think its right that some players are getting banned for buying duped items. is there any way that the Dev teams can track down the original maker of these items with extra programming or some other way so only the one who dupes gets banned and not the poor innocent players who bought the duped items that don't know they are dupes?
    • I also believe the Dev teams should add extra programming to do a daily automatic programmed full sweep of every vendor, house, bank, blue beetle, pack horse, each players back packs and any item on the ground or in a container for these items and any duped items found should be turned into something like the monk robes without banning the people who have them.
    • No idea what kind of programming that would take but i think its possible. what do you guys think?

    Before we start judging, maybe we should let the drama play a little more and see where it takes us. I must admit that I am curios to the responses that the so called banned people will have with the "It is out of the bag thread".
     
  4. Scary too if they implemented this system i suggested and did it daily sweep and implemented one more thing like for instance when an items is on a vendor how about listing how long the item was on the vendor with some sort of timer if the item is on the vendor for over 24 hours then we know its legit if its not legit the item turns to some low cost item like a monk robe.

    The daily sweep could also gather information for a SearchUO type of page that would level the playing field between those with vendors in Luna and those with vendors elsewhere. Other games have that, why shouldn't we?

    That depent of the case, if a player is buying and reselling, he most likely know the items are duped. If he is buying them for own use, I think the items should get deleted and he should get a warning.


    Maybe the duper are using a trial account for the duping, then trading back to his main account for resale. Not all who cry innocent is innocent.

    I think they will ban all with duped items, then unban the ones proven innocent.

    • i am sure they can also trace his or her ip address and even if some how he or she can changes there ip address or if he or she uses more then one computers or gets a new computer EA or who ever can remember his or her name and the credit card number and not let him or her create a new account if its the same person thats been banned 3 times.
