question about arena snipers

Replies

  • Just to update, looks like my method has worked so far (no more sniping). So to rehatch
    1) Direct confrontation/message
    2) Call out their bad behavior
    3) Ask how they would like the same treatment
    4) Go after the people he named drop as henchmen (via mute and report option)
    5) Rage on the forum.

    As for legality, it's pretty naive to think that this is a laughable case. Not sure about you, but i grew up with people suing McDonalds over spilling coffee on their laps. All you need is a good lawyer (not Rudy Giuliani) and a court that sympathizes with your argument (probably the 9th District Court of Appeals).

    Til we rage again!

    Never make the mistake of believing forbearance equates to acceptance, or that all positions are equally valid.

    The McDonald's hot coffee case was actually legit. The fact that you brought it up in the way you did demonstrates how well McD's media campaign worked to defame the plaintiff.

    They were serving scalding hot coffee at dangerous temps, and they knew it, the woman suffered serious injuries and she only sued for the medical costs.
  • @zanir the only way I've been able to chat with shard mates is to ally request them first then you can open a chat. I have open ally slots so always get asked to ally request after an arena battle (oddly enough not the same for fleets).
    Interesting info on the MickeyDs lawsuit. I could imagine being in the court and having the prosecutor just dump the scalding coffee onto jury's crotches. Ladies and Gentlemen, i rest my case

    I disagree, this is an illegal activity. What is the intent of the person involved? It is intending to do harm, in this case take 200 crystals which do have a financial value (in game store). He also texted me in game chat that he had 2 co conspirators if i attempted to seek retribution. So that's the legal definition of conspiracy.
    Some aspects of the game have changed because of legal ramifications...odds on prize boxes. So perhaps building a legal case is more useful to influence change?



    Take them to court then.

    I'm w/ TVF here, go the distance. I can't WAIT to read the Judge's response.

    This is akin to suing the Safety who tackled you before scoring the winning Touchdown. He caused irreparable harm to both the outcome of the game, as well as damaging your notoriety and costing you millions, I'm sure, in draft status.

    He had 10 co-conspirators on the field at the same time helping him to oppress you and aid in the emotional turmoil you suffered as a result of their obviously premediated intentions. Rumors of people even spotting them on the field for months prior, undergoing extensive training just to execute their sadistic plan upon you.

    I think you're on to something!

    Dude, do you really think any place at the top of the arena is "yours", payout or not?!
    You're talking not only about a game but about a game mode which it's goal is toppelled other players in the way to the top.
    Shards and consideration existed so we can prevent from the constant in fighting and maximize our reward, but by no means it mean 1st place "blong to us" in our PO.
    The person you're talking about maybe did not played nice, but it's still completely legal. There is no rule saying not to attack someone before his PO or to "conspire" with other to attack someone.

    In short- grow up

    I’m joining this ridiculous thread to chime in about the McDonald’s coffee. I hope you’re being sarcastic about the lawyer argument and not attempting to use that as hyperbole to prove the lawsuit was frivolous. The coffee was served at 190 degrees. That’s way above safe temperature for skin contact. She wasn’t driving. She spilled it while trying to add cream and sugar, and her clothes kept the scalding liquid on her skin for much longer than the minimum time necessary to burn. Lady won her lawsuit not because of a good lawyer, but because the coffee gave her third degree burns and she required SKIN GRAFTS.

    So, in conclusion, no, your arena payout issue is not nearly the equivalent of the McDonald’s Coffee lawsuit. It’s just a couple people being jerks.
  • whale up and git gud!
  • You must be new to the game...This has been happening in the game for a long time...It is called a shard, and some people run it like mafias. Communication happens in discord. If you are not in it, you will be attacked to make you waste crystals or stop you from keep trying to climb to the top. Stand your ground, and keep communication opened, they will eventually invite you to the shard or break you (lol).
  • The OP is so entitled that I wish I was part of his shard just to mess with him. I'd love to see him try to sue me.
  • This is gold. i think you have forgotten, that arena is a PvP part of the game. and pvp means, you are competing for a spot. and let me say it, grouping up on someone, to push him out, is perfectly valid gameplay. it denies you ressources, thus sets you behind, and makes life for everyone else easier, becouse they can progress faster than you. if you ask me, if there are no agreements (aka a shard chat), sniping people is not morally wrong in any way, and is even the smart move.
  • Also, maybe he is trying to accomplish some GAC feats on wins on Squad or Fleet arena. If you are not Top 3, then your only option is to attack people above you. Maybe he hit #1 at his PO but used only 2 of his daily chances, so with his 3 left he is waiting until other teams that he knows he can beat show up in the refresh, then attacking them.

    Most people end up attacking the same people daily in their Squad or Fleet shards, because their teams can counter those, it's just how it works. In my Squad shard I end up hitting the same 5-8 teams daily because of how they lineup and I know I can beat them, and I have the same 2-3 other players who knock me back daily because their teams can counter mine.

    For sure it's annoying getting sniped before PO, but you have to play defense aka engage in battle to lock others from hitting you just before PO.
