    Duels promote griefing

    Not every duel is but some duels can be. (We already have evidence of this ffs. It isnt a hard concept despite the number of times I have been forced to repeat it) It is apparently useless to point this out to people who refuse to read so I am not going to bother anymore. It is like playing...

    Duels promote griefing

    Griefing is always the abuse of a system in a game so it doesnt matter that it is part of the game and your point is idiotic because you keep treating it as if we are talking about every duel. and dont think I didnt notice you STILL ignored my point just to repeat more of the same nonsense.

    Duels promote griefing

    Griefing is abusing a system to harass another player. Harassing someone is a type of abuse as well. I shouldnt have to explain this to someone who tried to sound so superior (yet failed so spectacularly). Yet again. NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT EVERY DUEL. Just like Pankreas you are also...

    Duels promote griefing

    Ahh the classic "It is your fault I abuse you" argument. It is a garbage argument every time it gets trotted out. "Dont want to be griefed in online mode? Just play story mode." "Dont want to be intentionally shot by your teammates? Just play solo mode." It also conveniently ignores that the...

    Duels promote griefing

    Wrong. The only options that allow it also have a negative penalty. You either have to suicide for KO protection, lose health and possibly energy in the process, or not join a town losing access to forums, safer markets, chats, shops, etc.

    Duels promote griefing

    Nonsense question. They are not used as synonyms. You are either confused or are desperately trying to nitpick your way out of this with another straw man. Either way I will not explain again after this. Having a system that allows players to negatively effect another player without their...

    Duels promote griefing

    Yes it is correct. It allows a player to negatively effect another player without their explicit permission. That sort of system promotes abuse. Fort fights as a whole are not the same but the dig system is. It allows abuse as well by allowing another player to negatively effect the gameplay of...

    Duels promote griefing

    That was my point. Fort fights could be as well. We have literally had people banned for abusing the dig system, aka "griefing" others.

    Duels promote griefing

    Do you know one way you can find someone arguing dishonestly? Look for them trying to shift the burden of proof. I will play your game however. "Duels promote greifing" Does that say all duels are greifing? NO! It uses the word promote. Promote - further the progress of (something, especially...

    Duels promote griefing

    You can disagree but you would still be wrong. Your entire premise is wrong in fact because you are still treating it as if someone said every duel would be considered griefing and no one has said that. This is the second time I have said this. I would appreciate it if you stopped arguing...

    Duels promote griefing

    Then you would be the one who is wrong. Almost every act of griefing in every game ever used an element of gameplay. Arguing that "Gameplay in The West IS dueling" has no bearing at all. Alex didnt say every duel is greifing as you try to make it seem but it certainly promotes it and arguing...

    Day of dead stuff unavailable in Xmas bags?

    Exactly. This last event screws over a big portion of the playerbase and then we get hit again at christmas it seems. This is the only reason I can see for this decision. Players discussed the sets being in bags for the entire event all the way up until now just to find out some seemingly...

    Day of dead stuff unavailable in Xmas bags?

    Last year (2017) had the DotD sets. https://forum.the-west.net/index.php?threads/christmas-sale-2017.57602/ same for 2016 https://forum.the-west.net/index.php?threads/christmas-sale-2016.57336/ besides the chests I confirmed on tw-calc that their stats show the 2016 and 2017 bags both had...

    TAFKA Miss Sarajevo

    I think I may recognize the name but I am not sure we played together much. I played many of the older worlds at one point or another but I was mostly active in the named rather than numbered worlds. Welcome back. It is entirely possible I am wrong as well. It has been many years and many...

    Chef Weapon Set

    As someone who doesnt buy nuggets, I understand Inno needs money to keep the game going but this set isnt helping. Some towns spent years and tens millions of dollars in-game to upgrade their players and all of that time, money, and teamwork has been negated by someone with a decent wallet. It...

    I have been noticing it as well. My load times have increased severalfold since the last update. My speeds are fairly slow but I went from several seconds to load to 45 seconds to a minute now.
