Server baddies, people to look out for...Follow

I made this topic because I think it would be good to warn others about other bad players we have run into so we don't have similar run ins. Just post any stories or warnings for others to see. Here's something that just happened to me today...

Today in Kazham I was invited to a party that looked a little promising. I asked what my job would be, assuming I would just end up as a tank as always but instead I was given damage dealer. No prolems here, I wont have to concentrate just smash. We get to fighting and the 'tank' (a ninja -.-; ) couldn't hold hate at all, so I suggested me taking over the role as tank. The next fight goes a lot smoother. The mandy stuck to me like glue, it never came off me once. Afterwards the leader, a female hume named Skyliner gets upset because I was 'trying to change the party and that they were doing fine before I came along.' I told them that I was only trying to help and that I was speaking from experience. Well the next fight me and the only other member of the party that agreed with me were booted out of the party in mid combat, forced to take on the mandy on our own. Fortunatly we managed to kill it, but only because the party kept healing us for some reason. We demanded an explanation from Skyliner, only to get some garbage about me calling everyone stupid and trying to change the party. We were furious. If it seemed like I was trying to take over to her she could have just asked me to stop. I may have come off as a little pushy (which I didnt mean to), but that was still no excuse to ditch us in mid combat. I black listed her and reported her to a gm and left. If ever invited by Skyliner, please refuse and blacklist her. She needs to learn that biting peoples heads off when they try to help you is no way to treat others, and if she continues she wont get very far in this game or life.

Thankfully, I haven't had much trouble, and I've only had to /blist one person. I don't remember the name exactly...I believe she was a Mithran MNK named Chakyi. Most of my problems with her were personal annoyances...but she has tried to cheat me out of an item and take over a party in which I was a leader of. *shrugs* Not sure if that qualifies, but... ^^;

thats awful. i hate ppl like that.

btw... here are some others:

~Bling: notorious for being the most horrible player and whm for the matter on pandemonuim. also, as you can read in my other post is a GM and this is his off duty character. hes a total ????

~Cormega: everytime i see this guy he is always purposely trainging mobs in the leveling areas. for example i was in garliage citadel and he wouldnt stop training undead and the bats that aggro. my LS friend said he saw him in qurim training aggro mobs to the zone a couple hours before i saw him.

So be cautios and avoid them at all cost.

I wasn't going to reply to this thread but once i saw the quote about Cormega I almost fell out of my chair. Trociont couldn't be more right about him. He was in my linkshell for a bit, until I overheard him bragging about training undead in Garliage citadel. I know it doesn't make up for the grief he caused you guys but i booted him on the spot.

Im sure everyone has ran into that one idiot or two that makes playing less than enjoyable. For me, the one who consistantly keeps giving me grief is Project. I'll enlighten you on my first experience with this guy.

My girlfriend and I were trying to complete our final Rank 2 mission and we chose to go to
San d' first, so we had to walk on out to Ghelsba to take out Vatgit. We were camping his spawning point for quite sometime when he and a buddy from another country strolled up. I asked them if they needed to kill the orc for the mission... no responce. So I checked them both, who allredy brandished a mission rank of 2 and the titles Warchief Wrecker, a sign that they had killed the bugger. Then Vatgit spawned, I pulled out my hammer and was about to land the blow to claim him when Project used provoke, he and his buddy, who were way too high level to gain any exp disbatched him in 3 hits and project imediately their victory with "F*** You Noob!." As you can imagine both I and my girlfriend were very upset. Little does Project know that I have raised 4 characters to rank 3 and at way lower levels him.

My other experience was with Project was at the Kings Tomb. I was with my roommate and we were camping the Spook, when in walks Project saying, "Everybody get the f*** outta here I need money." Soon as I saw him my jaw dropped. Not only is this guy a kill stealer, but a pompus butt-nugget to boot! I asked him if he wanted to take turns knowing that sometimes the spook pops more than once a night. He told me to "F*** off" and proceeded to beat us too both the spawns and brag how he got the drop he wanted on the last one when we had been there since the last night and took turns with other groups. This guy is a grade-A Dahlmel **** and is you see him, beware of his selfish **** antics. Just a note: do not confuse Project with Projekt, they are not to my knowledge the same player and I would never want to defame any other person who was not involved.

i sure do like servers forumns.
Well as ivan said there was 1 other person in the grp who disagreed with Skyliner that was me.
Ivan did a great job of keeping hate during the entire fight, skiliner did not want to change the way the party was going.
so the next fight Ivan was tanking and was booted! MID-Battle!
As soon as i saw this im like wtf, so i asked Skyliner what happend, He/she goes let him die, we were doing good anyways.
I disbanded, told Ivan to seek and me and him took it down with the aid of a friendly LFG taru mage.
Watch out for skyliner because that is a horrible thing to do, and i hope skyliner learned never to do it again.

All of us probably has someone that hates us. Usually, if we hate them and we're straight foward with it then they'll automatically hate us back. However, I don't like Cormega, he tried hitting on me one day, that's just sad when it comes to the point where you're hitting on cats, /sigh. Well anyways, I'll just go ahead and put my own name on here, stay away from me, Gregoria. I wanted to get to it for anyone else had the chance to. Oh, and stay away from Meli.

You were the one being rude and ungreatful..its fairly common for the people to help to get the lots...at least that way everyone gets something for their time..you the key..them the other items...what is your handle so that I know not to help you if ever you should ask?

arshesNie:

You are the one at wrong here.

AFs... that should be level 40s right. So the person who helped you, the Samurai, is probably 40+ maybe even 50+. This means, 500 gil is a drop in the bucket.

There is nothing wrong letting people who help you lot on the drops of all the creatures killed. Heck, you're getting a key to get an AF.

Lastly, you have as much chance as her to get the stuff. So, she was not "stealing" all of the lots.

i try to avoid posts like this unless i see something that really means something to me....

ritsuko is probally one of the kindest people on this server.
he is also probally one of, if not the best sams this server will ever have.

i got him a worldpass when i was level 30 and since then he has made it to 71 sam/rng in the time i went from 30-60.
he soloed or made a party for EVERY piece of my AF and EVERY genkai i have needed, without me having to ask for his help.

he has done this for many people on this server and to see some little greedy wangsucker try to say he is no good makes me sick.
the only reason i help people is because i know there are good people out there like ritz that will pass along that good karma someday.

thats my 2 cents, not trying to start a flamefest.
i just feel like i owe it to rits to say something in his defense after all he has done for me and others.

The ONLY 2 people I've ever blacklisted are Rogan and Rakan...it's not even so much they are bad players, just their attitude and general stupidity (though I must admit it amuses me ^^;) I know for a fact on one day in Gustav alone they had myself, Apache, a thf and one other PLD blist them alone...they must have racked up quite a list of fans.

Other than that, I tend to remember the good ones, not the mediocre or bad..I seem to only remember the *really* bad ones.

As for Ritsuko, I hear good things about her, and what she did to you arshesNie was not rude, did you consider if she needed them? And from the sounds of it, it was her/him who was doing the killing... I'm not flaming you man, but I think you should have paid her that 500 whatver.

/flame on
As for someone that I'm sure most of us know, and many of us hate (yes I'm going that far)...

ROYAL-ASS-HUMPING-ASIN.

Pssh, which WHM to Valkurm with NO equipment, blames the party when the monster even turns in their general direction, and when they die uses foul language even though no party member could shift the direction the persons life ws going.
pssh.
/flame off

Sorrie, for the rudeness, crudness, and vulgarity, of this post, but I find no other way to relay how I fell about such a player in virtual messages.

Though I'm not the OP, I thought I'd give my two cents.

I was on my way to Fei'Yin with a couple friends when Nastynyc /tells me, asking me if I'm doing Teleport-Mea. I respond, telling him I'm going to Fei'Yin, but I'd help him through Rangemount Pass.

When I zone in, my friend Lbelle is sitting there, waiting for me with our PLD friend. Her immediate reaction upon seeing Nastynyc is one of anger and horror, and I asked her what was wrong. She told me that Nastynyc'd MPK'd her pt in Garliage as his DRG for "stealing" "his" party's spot, then laughed at them while they died, and had been known to harass her and a couple other people she knew in /tell's since. I told him this and he just sent me a few deragatory /tells about my friend...

And then I went about my business ;p

Uh, personally, I hear good things about Nastysync (hope spelling name right) and when you said "he sent some derogatory tells back" WELL, that's not exactly fair, you gave your friend the nice wording that you give your friend Lbelle(who I also hear is nice) while you give Nasty a long, confusing, and just insulting word as "derogatory". I'm not attacking you but this almots sounds as if you have a personal vendetta against him.

I had to go back and read the original post a few times after reading this and in all honestly, it seemed to me the original poster was trying to be non-biased. He said Nastynyc sent a few derrogatory /tell's about his friend, not about him persay. Which I don't blame Nastynyc for being upset if maybe he had something against the other person enough to MPK them.

I don't really know much about either of them AND it was just heresay anyhow so...

grain of salt anyone?

Um, LOL, overreact much? I don't really know Nastynyc, I didn't go: OMG WHAT A HORRIBLE PERSON ONOES!!!111!! I really don't care either way... I just said what I know of his reputation based on my experience.

He's never done anything to me personally, so I can't have anything against him. If that makes it any clearer.

But, I will say this. Anyone who MPKs on purpose has maturity issues, and they're risking account suspension for their behavior. I was very polite to him (after all, I was offering to take a stranger through Rangemount Pass, which should speak volumes of my general niceness) and told him why my friend had a problem with him. The two of them were trading insults in /say, and as I wasn't rude to him, I didn't think the rudeness he treated me with in return was really warranted. Especially because I made no accusations and wasn't like "omg u horrible person!!1!11!11"

If he's your friend or something, that's nice you want to defend him, but like... calm down. Breathe man, BREATHE :D

I have also heard about Cormega from a good friend recently. Apparently they were in a genkai 1 Necropolis party for the papyrus. After killing some liches the papyrus drops and people begin to lot on it. From the story she told me Cormega was beaten on the lot by another party member (he was party leader) so he promptly boots everyone from party, claims the papyrus, and takes off. Now that is probably close to one of the lowest things you can do in this game.

Regarding Nastynyc. I had heard a lot of bad things about him but I actually partied with him the other day in Qufim and he seemed like a nice enough guy. I even found him to be quite amusing and a highly competent Paladin. Just goes to show to take what you hear with a grain of salt.

There's actually more than six of them, more like ten or twelve (at last count), and I actually have a story about them.

If you see these guys, be wary. Don't party with them, and if they're higher than you, keep an eye on them, because we're talking about super **** power here.

I'd formed a quartet with two LS buddies and a WHM, and we were sitting in Shakhrami minding our own business. We stayed out of the main rooms, away from the other players, and our WHM was AFK at the moment.

One of the Zooe people (the 30WAR/5MNK Elvaan female one) was standing idle in the main room, didn't really comment much on it or think anything of it.

Out of nowhere, the **** starts a gob/bat train, then runs over to my PT as we're in the middle of killing a Maze Maker. The WHM was still AFK (the BLM and I were fighting from a distance), so the poor taru couldn't run... there was nothing we could do. There were at least 3 or 4 Gob Tinkerers/Butchers, Stink Bats, a Combat... the Zooe person ran around until they were killed, and of course, the gob aggro's our WHM. The BLM and I ran :( We were level 12 at the time and the gobs were IT+.

So, we called the GM's, and I got a response from a Senior Game Master (? Anyon else ever had that happen?). The Zooe person signed off around that time, but they were back on later tonight, I checked randomly after my WHM XP pt and found the same Zooe in Shakhrami again.

Long story short, if you see these guys, don't feel bad about MPKing them. They'll do it to other people for no reason at all... I'm hoping some high level BST releases a Maze Scorpian on the bastard, LOL ^^

Please don't stoop to their level. (I know you're way cooler than that, Salya. ^_~)

If you see the Zooes (or anyone else for that matter) MPKing, report it. It may not seem like the GMs do much, but if they get enough reports about a particular person or group, they'll *do* something, I'm sure.

SE won't protect 10 (or 12) accounts if it means losing more than 100 others.

Edit: And I'm really sorry to hear about the Shakrami incident. ;_;

*raises his hand* I'd be the flatten whm from last night. I agree, it was really irritating at first but I'd rather not see them mpk'ed. Actually, it sounds like it's been done to them before so this might be some kind of retaliation for that and I definately wouldn't this to happen to anyone else. I'm hoping *crosses fingers* that this ,along with all their other activities, is giving this group enough notice to get the big boot. By the way, Salya party's rock! ^^ Look me up again bud!

The award has to go to Litteman and Littegirl and the rest of their crew. They have been hunting Stroper Chyme for 2+ weeks as a party on Ord. Caves. Not usually a problem, but they train mobs (Bats, Gobs, whatever) into the room. Not usually a problem, but they call for help seconds before spawn time which means now everyone in the room can voke the dang mob. leaving them a better chance of getting Stroper Chyme. People have called GM including myself and they do nothing. They have done nothing but farm it and have sold about 6 the last day. Who knows how many they have gotten in 2+ weeks. Anyhow, many speculate that they work for gil sellers. This is very possible. I dont mind competition, but this is just cheating. They have a BRD in the PT that sleeps a bat and holds it there. We tried to voke it and kill it before spawn, but it was already claimed. Then they call for help and we are screwed because pop. There goes SC. >< I will get the other names. If these ppl need anyhelp with anything at all, please deny them. You may not camp SC but you camp something and it is just a matter of time before they invade yours with dirty tactics.

Reason Salya doesn't feel bad about MPKing bots: 'cause they're bots ^^; I don't know, a 13 year old with a grudge is easier to deal with, imo, then a bunch of bots specifically programmed to do things like this. If they're not MPKing, they're camping NMs, clearing low level places of XP mobs, taking away mining/harvesting spots, et al, in essence, harming a great deal of people. The worst offense is the hike in price for rare spells and equipment, that just... yeah. Stabby. Now, I'll help out any player (that's not a giant, flexing poohole) who needs help, but I'll let a bot die just as soon as look at it.

I'd really really like botting to NOT get to the iRO levels. ;.; And I really would also like to avoid the same thing happening to other people. How many level 15 players have a high level LS to back them up and babysit for them?

You're much more tolerant than me, dude, I gotta tell you that ^^ I've never seen nor heard of them being MPK'd, the only reason Kohan and I could think of as to why they'd do this is that they saw us killing a Maze Maker and wanted to kill us off to either drive off the competition, or to claim our mob since it was almost dead. I guess they didn't like the damage we were doing :D Even if they were MPK'd before, it's no excuse to be malicious to people who have had nothing to do with it.

But yes, I hope that Square and the GMs actually do something about this instead of slapping them on the wrists. Obvious bot behavior should be dealt with a lot better than it is now.

And as for a party, sure thing ^^ I'm trying to get my RNG to 40 sometime soon, inbetween leveling my poor, poor neglected WHM...

Hm, I think I logged out in Tahrongi ;.; I better go make my way back to Windurst ^_^;;;;

Yeah what can I say, I'm way too nice for my own good, bleh! I just hope they're dealt with and tossed out before they can go around causing more people trouble and leave the good decent folks of Pandy to get our levels quickly and in peace! =P

A couple of reasons why MPKing is bad:

1) Innocent bystanders getting killed. ;_;
2) Someone may report the MPKer for ToS violation. So even if the MPK is done for the benefit of the server...the good player could be penalized.

Even if you were to be very careful of where you MPK, Salya, other people won't be. ;_;


On a related note:
BTW, I report fishing bots that I'm pretty sure are bots. (And I don't harass the character to determine this.) Some of the bots have disappeared. Others have not (Maybe the GMs couldn't catch them at it?)

So, I ask everyone to report characters violating the ToS. And if SE doesn't do anything about it...well, they're going to lose a lot of accounts because my husband and I joined with friends to have fun together.

When I saw what MorpheousUnleashed said about Cormega I just had to comment. You're right, that's about as low as it gets, if not the lowest thing you can do. That should be the kind of thing that gets reported to the GM's, even though fishing bots are bad, they don't prevent me from having fun. What Cormega did would probably do just that.

Regarding Nastynyc.. He helped me on the Summerfest moogle quest. He is a Galka, and he offered his help. After we finished, he examined me, complemented my equipment, and talked for a while. He didn't seen like a bad person, he said nothing that offended me or anything of that sort...

I will admit it is rather eye catching.

I don't think I've bought anything from you thought. :)

I find too many people do one of the following (Not that you do):
1) Price things equal or greater than AH prices. Why on earth would I buy from you then?

2) Price a item the same price as a stack. Sorry, I'm not buying a wind crystal from you for 1800 gil.

The sad thing is I know some people do these on purpose.
1) Hoping that people are too lazy or busy to check the AH and just want the item and have gil to burn.

2) Hoping that people have a brain lapse and buy the stack without thinking.

Yeah, so um....right.
