Thank Fu*king god the SE Banning Gil SELLersFollow

#1 Feb 15 2005 at 12:55 AM Rating: Decent
WELL SE FINALY finaly does something about the gil sellers this
here's y we crashed early ^^
the update is below
----------------------------------------------------------------
On February 14, over 800 accounts which repeatedly violated the PlayOnline Member Agreement were permanently banned from PlayOnline.

The users of these accounts would form groups to monopolize the hunting spots of notorious monsters (NM). They also repeatedly performed harassment and MPK actions against other players.

Grief tactics, including harassment, are listed in the PlayOnline Member Agreement as violations and are not allowed for any reason. Also, interfering other players' game play in order to monopolize monsters which spawn in hunting spots is not allowed.

Based on the above, we have taken strict actions against players who have violated the PlayOnline Member Agreement.

If you become a victim of harrasment, please make a GM Call and report the issue directly to a Game Master.

Your understanding and cooperation will help us provide the best experience possible to our players. Thank you!

Well, when will most of the prices go down for most items on the AH? Probable never. This won't do much for us in the means of buying for less.
Just makes the NM spawns more easy to farm.
Oh well.

It should help lower the prices at least somewhat. What was happening is these people were camping and hording in a single item drop from an NM and monopolizing the market, they could steadily increase the price of these items because they knew noone else had them(unless they were reselling).

What's going to happen now is different people will get these items, and when putting on AH they won't be as sure that there's will sell at a higher price, thus the normally won't put it up for a higher price, more of the same price.

Bottom Line, there will be less of the items skyrocketing to higher prices fast and more of a balanced rise in price if there is one.

But yes, some of the damage has already been done.

If they were NM monopolizers OR MPKer's they are gone, if they are neither of these, or for the most part neither, they are not.

Not necessarily, Bonesly and Micadio are part of the monopolizing bunch, and they're still online. They are my personal least favourites after the dirty tactics they used on me and a friend once.

I think I seen you in a party once in Cape Terrigan, Burli. Mokely had came running to the zone to the Valley of Sorrows with a nice long train of everything they could find.


And from the way everyone around there was talking, it wasn't a first for them either.

Yet if they are still online, I think SE missed one of the worst people on the server. Also, Xiaofeng might have been a gil seller, and might have kept a tight grip on the Chymes and all... but he wasn't a bad guy.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he should have had the right to do what he did. But I was in Ordelle's once, trying to camp me a ring. I did get one. About 15 min later, Xiao sent me a tell. Thought he was gonna harass me. He asked me to help one of his friends get Dark AF from the Gerwitz things. Or however it is spelled. And it wasn't a fellow gil seller, it was someone I had known from parties before hand. Xiaofeng took the time to go with us, and helped us kill all three NM's and in fact, if not for him, we would have died on the third NM.

So remember that when you all shout "Huzzah!" for them all being gone. Not all of them were the hated jerks people played them out to be.

I'm sure some of them were really nice people, Redgirl for one seemed nice at times, not so nice at others, maybe different people playing her character. But that's beside the point, they made the game less enjoyable for people who needed/wanted those items..

That's why they're gone, and it's completely justified in my opinion.

And yes, they love to train that zone >.< I remember them killing a load of party members there, including me once Smiley: cry

What if a normal player was monopolizing NMs? A normal non-gil selling USA player? Would they have been banned too?


Tell me if i am wrong but i think they said all people who were banned had been warned previous that what they were doing was wrong.

Its very hard for a normal player to monpolize a NM because unlike gil sellers we dont work in shifts and we need to sleep, crap and maybe work or school. So we can't camp the same NM for 24 hours a day for 6 months.

Don't kid yourself by thinking that prices will go down. I ,like you, wish they would go down. But SE cannot regulate greed and FFXI players are some of the most greedy mofos I've seen. People might not camp a NM 24/7 but if they happen to get lucky one day they will surely get top gil at the AH.

Many people dislike the Xables for mining 24/7 and accuse them of monopolizing. I find them to be a great benifit to the economy of Diabolos. The xables consistantly charged 10k for gold ore. They didn't try to jack the price. Last week they took a couple days off to celebrate the Chinese New Year. What happens? ...greedy mofos jacked the price of gold ore up to 12k!!! I was seeing /shouts of joy cause ppl thought that the xables had been kicked and mining Gusgen was now possible. Well, i hope the xables keep you greedy mofos out of Gusgen for a long time.

I saw a mining bot not mine at all once, twas quite funny. But anyway, Xiaofeng and Yungfeng are asses. I had the unfortunate experience of partying with their n00b lv 11 wars/nothing, they never spoke a word, would point at gobs and pull at random, I died like 3 times, we kept saying " Goblin(with <t>) {/no}, theyd pull anyway. Also they were the complete antagonists when me and HP(RIP) were in the anti gil seller ls trying to camp ochiudos kote to sell bak cheap to people who really needed it. They train anything they can get their dirty little hands on, and used wyverns to get in your face and block your targeting. I hate them and forever will, cause we never managed to get a single pair of kote.

Well, Buburim u is lame anyways. Farming there is lame, make money a cooler way!


hahaha. <burn>

on a lighter note. hopefully this will lower prices in the ah, some people have grown accustomed to making ludicris money when they can and do get the drop. ;_; so we might not see very many price drops, if at all. it'll take a server wide effort to lower these prices, not just getting rid of the gil sellers.

Bettgs was a decent person, the fengs were annoying little children. Every time I kill Chyme "drop?" "drop?" "drop?" "drop?" While Bettgs joined a camping party with me and a friend and tried to teach us a few phrases in Chinese. Yeah I partied with a gilseller, but it's **** lonely in those kidneys, and that's how I learned they pop exactly 12 minutes after death.

well Xaio wasn't a bad guy. I went down and watched the bots and what not at work once while camping the Kotes. And seen how Xaiofeng beat them non stop. You can say what you want about them...but there are alot of third party programs being used in this game....and while Xaio may have been dirty in your opinion. He did what was necessary because of third party programing. He always helped on AF's and if kotes or other gear was needed, he would help get it.

And I see Jay you still have nothing more to do than to post nonsense. oh well.....i rarely come to these boards anymore.

Take Care all.....

Eh, it's true but Xiaofeng did have some dirty tactics in Davoi. In Ordelle's he wasn't too bad. Still bad..but not too bad. Would talk to me or whoever in my LS was camping the stroper.

Anyways, not all are gone. Xables are still there. Saw them on last night.

I think it is cool that you farm the Burm. Almost every location offers something of value to farm. Why go fight the crowds when you can find your own little area? I have a couple of unfarmed areas as well that offer good reward if you know where to look.

Bettgs or any of those can never be cool, no matter what, they trained my pt after we asked them to "please move", and they trained us 3x freakin times, and what did the GM do, they "looked into it", all 6 of them in that little group can go to **** for all I care, they just dont care about others, its all about themselves.
