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

  • Chaining now not allowed?!!!

    82BB025C-BE04-435B-98D7-212967025795.jpg So I guess chaining isn’t allowed anymore.
    Isn’t that the whole reason that there had always been an ing on that word?
    Now it takes a whiny little toon to call admin, to cry and stop it.
    So what are TOS on game rules about chaining? Also how long is it legal to chain anyone?
    If by instance this is a TOS violation I’ll think twice about purchasing land and even playing.
    So now the whining win? What has pvp become?

    screenshot of admin note below

    The Will to Power will enable us to go beyond good and evil, to become overman- evoking romanticism and reasoning, to see knowledge for what it is, Power and Godlessness.

    The funny thing is, once upon a time this was actually considered a pvp game. When I started there were no monsters so everyone just smashed each other, it was great fun. In this very forum history there are numerous threads regarding chain wars and events that sometimes lasted several months... Now, are we saying that one pathetic whiner reports someone for hurting their pixels and accounts could get banned? Seriously?


    • #3
      Do they really have a rule saying chaining is not allowed anymore? Did new ownership change rules?
      If they did, shouldn’t the player be grandfathered in?

      I don’t care if there are any incentives for pvp, I like to play that way

      I just like crushing people that whine or talk smack, that doesn’t go to me and I would blast them a long time
      I enjoy that. I’d like to see said rules

        If they don't want chaining, for whatever reason, it should be coded out by hiding the target for a set period of time -- and not be a baited trap for players who've been doing it for over a decade.

          Are you sure this was about chaining and not word written on their wall??

          There is a new rule about harassment between players but that is words written not chaining...

            It does say "muted", so you could be right.

              I didn’t write on the wall at all-
              i never bullied, never typed a word at all
              i was conscientious of this because I didn’t want my feed to let toon get away

              Toon proclaimed It was bullied because I kept chaining

                Wow... just wow...

                I would like to know what this new rule is and the threshold of attacks; if it is such an issue, why don't they just code a hard limit(s) in?
                • For example, so many hits against a single opponent per hour (for example, 100 🤣)
                • A second rule for per day against the same opponent (for example, 1000 🤣)
                • A third more general rule for the number of hits per 24 hours (for example, 10,000)

                I think some simple rules like these would keep some folks happier, ha ha. Simple SQL statements, and easy to implement.

                  If this is going to become the new standard operating procedure of the game, Castle Age has now become worse than Farmville, because we can't even farm people for wins if this is indeed the way it is. And how exactly is one supposed to get the 'zero' achievements in campaigns without necessarily chaining? It looks as if some people have some verification to announce.

                  Edit: Yes, I am aware of the inactive guild Leaderboard 'trick', but given we don't know how many hits is considered chaining, or 'harassing', and chaining an inactive toon would still technically count as chaining, my point still stands.

                    Ok i am following up on this with customer service to find out why they did this. Just chaining should not be an issue, the policy they gave out related to verbal abuse. I have asked for a clarification of the policy related to this situation

                    Its also being discussed in discord.

                      Did you find anything out?
                      any info would be appreciated

                        Yeah you can't do CA without chaining, come on! what about the tasks?

                          More importantly, can we still chain zserg?! Is this even a 'thing' anymore? It used to be all the rage back in the glory days.

                            1) They need to show the rule that you violated.
                            2) Until they do, please share the keep of the new target so we can all have fun. As sharing keeps is actually not permitted by forum rules to do this, you'll have to be creative.


                            • #15
                              I never knew how to share their keep
                              That other person did though- two or three from their guild attacked me to seemingly drive me away from hitting primary target. Never worked I kept chaining.
