SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Monsters aren't predictable and boring, PvP is

    Now that I have your attention, BOTH PvP and Monsters have their predictabilities AND unpredictabilities. I'm just tired of PvPers saying that Monster hunting is boring because it's predictable, which I see more often on this forum than the other way around.

    In PvP, everyone knows what the formula is. The only thing unknown in the outcome is the other person's stats (and the luck factor).

    In fighting Monsters, the other stats are known, but the formula isn't. People have theories that it's more stamina that counts than attack when collecting loot, and to which monsters it may or may not apply, but no one actually knows. Plus the loot is RANDOM so you never know what you're going to get.

    For me the fun of monster hunting, aside from clicking and watching something die, is waiting to see what loot I'm going to get.

    I also like PvP because that is my ultimate goal, to be able to pound actual people instead of fictional monsters.

    So just because you think not knowing the other person's stats is more exciting than not knowing the formula, don't say the other is boring. That's just insulting.

    (To make one flame moot: the title was to get people's attention, I don't think PvP is boring.)

    Edit: Looking at it a different way, each individual attack in PvP is unpredictable, while the end result in Monster hunting is unpredictable. Likewise, each individual attack in Monster hunting is predictable, while the end result in PvP (opponent too weak/X BP) is predictable.

              I always beat a monster, I don't always beat other people. That's why I think monsters are boring. ... I could care less about the loot though.. that's just me.

                    Let's put it this way, monsters are EASY to kill.

                    The last forum PvP monster was an Alpha Bahamut.. the suppsedly "Hardcore Monster" to kill. We killed it in just 3 days, which is fast, when you consider that the marjority of the time, we were using our stamina to kill each other instead of the beast.

                    I REALLY wonder how ANY monster in this game can fail, when I've already participated in 3 events where killing the monster was NOT the point of the event, yet it still died? Heck, in the A Bahamut, I was purposely takind DOWN the health bar so it wouldn't die as fast. ... but that must made me die even faster lol

                          I've witnessed my fair share of incompetency in monster battles and may be witnessing it again in a hydra battle. Waiting to see if the CTA brings anyone in since it is only beginning. So it is possible to lose, but you have to work really hard at it.

                          But for veterans, monsters are chum in the water. Like you wrote, the forum monster battles show what happens when a group of experienced players get together and only expend, what.. maybe a third of their stamina (if that) on a monster. I expected the Alpha to last longer but Aki had to crit for 4 million to off it.
