Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]

MAIN RULES OF THE FORUMS

Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

PURPOSE OF THE FORUMS

These forums provide an area for constructive player discussions of the game. It also allows players to
help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.

CHANGES OR IMPROVEMENT

Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.

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.

    I'm Alpha Vanguard (Rank 7)... have been all day.

    What I see in my feed right now:

    Rank 1: 4
    Rank 2: 1
    Rank 3: 1
    Rank 4: 1
    Rank 5: 1
    Rank 6: 0
    Rank 7: 2

    It is rare that I see Ranks 5, 6, 7, or 8 in my feed.

    Your claim is not supported by my observations over the last couple of days.

    I've heard the same from others as well.

    I guess you're just lucky?

      How often are you refreshing? Are you checking iOS in addition? This is not a new complaint, but I have ground out every Arena and there are no lost tokens due to lack of 100 point targets. Arena is a grind; always has been.

        being a rank 7....that blows your excuse out of the water...how about simply admitting the matching system is garbage and has been for years?....like I said, the game is poorly managed with no indication of upcoming improvement

          Of course I'm refreshing.... I've been here since 2010. This isn't my first Arena.

          I don't own an IPhone, so no, no iOS...


          "... I have ground out every Arena and there are no lost tokens due to lack of 100 point targets."

          My experience over the last 10 years does not match yours... and I suppose we should leave it at that.

              I was super lucky today and found a EV target I could hit. I was AV myself by that time (before the reset), and my target EV. However I only saw 100 points recevied.

              Should you not score 105 or 110 points when you hit a higher rank? I could only try it in a few hits but I could not go over 100. Is this something ony happening with AV/EV?

                No it's for all ranks and it's been like that since the beginning of this season. No idea why they changed it.

                -1/0/+1 rank all give 100 points. +2 should give +110.
                But it's kinda wonky, for instance I tested it while hitting as a swordsman (SM) :
                SM vs Brawler: +100
                SM vs SM: +100
                SM vs Warrior: +100
                SM vs Glad: +110
                SM vs Hero: +120
                SM vs Legend: +140
                SM vs AV: +140

                Brawler hitting AV:
                +150 Arena Points

                So you can probably reach +150 at max, or maybe +160.

                AV hitting Brawler:
                +50

                ​​​​​​Warrior vs AV: +130
                => if you compare that with SM vs Legend (+140), it doesn't make sense. Same rank difference, different amount of points.
                So I'm not sure how it all works.

                  Silly event. I'll be rank 6 throught event, will finish rank 6, and then get down ranked to 5.

                  Same as every arena...

                  At least the random drops are a nice bonus

                    Too High Level: Your opponent is too high level for you to engage in an arena battle with!
                    Okay. Then why is he/she in my opponent list?

                      From GuoBiao (dev):
                      "Michael is a pvp hero, ability is and damage related, I hope he can be like the commander when others down he can crush the opponent, still in the process of refinement, I'm testing his ability will affect the pvp balance, some places are still in the adjustment."

                      I think the only thing we can be sure of right now is that Michael is a damage general.

                        Just a general question: If I am not hitting and losing in battle, why is it that I start the day with less points that I had when I stopped 6 hours before?

                          Because even though def wins don't give points anymore, def losses still make you lose points.

                            Been trying for Layla since she came out - CA does not want me to have her....
                            What is MK? Not sure of your shorthand....

                            The scoring change is OK (up 1, down 1) - however I still get a list full of 2, 3, 4's vs my level (7) to hit - that hasn't changed from the past.

                              That is really not fair - when all i have to hit are levels way below me? Where are the rule on how you "lose" points? No where in the posted Rules does it state you lose points for a defensive loss. I understand you lost points when you "hit" and lose to an opponent - but not when an opponent hits me and I lose...I mean really??? I am a level 2100 and a level 7000 hits me....how it that even fair??? or all I have to hit are levels 900...how is that fair to the level 900???

                                I've said this about 3 times already on this thread: passive loss penalties are too high in this version of Arena. No participant should wake up after a nap to find a third of their points gone.
