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.

- 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.

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 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.

  • Dear devs re arena

    YES I KNOW CAPS IS SHOUTING.

    When I spend tokens for arena refills and then due to whatever external circumstances outside of CA (call it having any sort of life at all) miss the collect window.... I'm NOT happy. Why is there a one hour window to collect? Do you REALLY think people have nothing better to do than monitor their CA **** ALL day for a month for some ****ty l00t that has no bearing on anything?? How ridiculous.

    So... why the window to collect? Remove it. It's stupid. If I participate in a battle I want credit. You could have battles going all day and night without hour gaps in between if you'd just get rid of that stupid window.

    oh- and PS your Arena implementation sucks mainly because of this. Whoever designs the arena.. or has final say on the design... they need to get fired or transferred awaaaay from CA.

    If you don't like arena, i have a solution for you.

    1. You get out of your chair
    2. you go to the nearest door
    3. You go outside
    4. You start doing things in real life
    5. smell the flowers and hot chocolate
    6. profit from the money that you save from not refilling

      so you can stick around to fight the battle but you're either too lazy or stupid to stay online for another 30 seconds or so & click the collect button? This is an old whine. Get over it. It's never gonna be changed, not in arenas, not in GBs. Live with it, like the rest of us do.

        Or...do like myself and others have done, don't opt into Arena. I'm not a fan of the loot, bugs, exploits, etc from it either, so I didn't join.

        If you don't consider the loot any good, what is your reason for doing Arena? The collection method has been this way for 2 Arenas prior to this one.

          Then dont opt in. I agree the loot is abysmal. The windows are irritating (especially when the service in unavailable and you have tokens invested into a battle...) The mechanism of the battles is dull... The "best" reward is the general and the devs wont let us know what the special ability is...

          Anyway - there are a multitude of threads already in here explaining what is wrong with this Arena.


          Do what I did. Opt Out.

              Um, you do realize that there are 12 battles in a day and you need to start the next battle 1 hour after the first battle ends, which leaves 1 hour to collect. they can't stretch it any farther than they do, so there's no point asking them to.

                Amazing how quickly some folks will jump on someone for complaining about something they agree with the complainer on, just because they feel the person's argument is vulnerable.

                Why do I spend tokens on battles and then not collect?

                None of your $%$% business..but, I assure the self righteous board fanboys that don't like my post that not only is CA NOT the center of my universe, but also that I won't go broke or mentally insane because I spent tokens on arena battles I didn't collect on.

                It's annoying- It's poor design- AND guess what..

                THIS is the important thing so pay attention...


                Pointing out things out that suck, AKA complaining- on message boards of products you have a vested interest in there being improvements to.......WORKS. So kindly shove it ___, ESPECIALLY if you agree with me in the first place.

                Don't tell me to simply NOT DO the thing I'm complaining about. That's not the answer. That doesn't help anyone. Don't analyze my motivation. Don't attack me. If anyone here as an actual counter-point to my opinion that the current Arena collection window is nothing but a test of who has the most time to waste- make the point. Otherwise feel free to not take the time to respond.

                  I honestly couldn't care less if there were 1 battle a day. I really couldn't care less. The arena not something I enjoy all that much... but I do like to get credit when I took the time, especially when it was unpleasant to begin with.

                    What difference does it make to you? My question and complain is regarding the 1 hour window's existence. The fact that I spent tokens exacerbates my frustration and hammers the point that it's bad design but as to WHY I did it, maybe because I felt like it? Why do you ask? Do you have a problem with being over curious? Am I invalidated from complaining because my motives seem contradictory? Maybe I have OCD when it comes to competition and couldn't stop myself from hitting the refill button when I was behind in a battle.

                    Either way though the 1 hr collect window is frustrating which is the point.

                      Do what I did. Opt Out.

                      You took the time to respond.. you agree with me.... and that's all you had to say is basically "give up, don't complain and take your medicine?" WOW. Whether or not I opt out, I'll p!ss and m0an about it. Hello. I love CA and I would love to excel in an "Arena" type event that didn't suck, so I'm complaining to that end. Why is that a problem.

                        Why do you ask? Why not?
                        Do you have a problem with being over curious? Naah, just bored
                        Am I invalidated from complaining because my motives seem contradictory? Well... yeah? How can someone get your point if you yourself condradict it?
                        Maybe I have OCD when it comes to competition and couldn't stop myself from hitting the refill button when I was behind in a battle. Half of the problem is to recognize it, keep workin' on it
                        Either way though the 1 hr collect window is frustrating which is the point. And the point of asking for a solution to someone is to make that person willing to solve it, not telling him he should be fired and his products, that you want, suck. (see above for the "why i'm invalidated" response)

                          I think most of us can agree with that. I think you lost people when you started NERDRAGEing right off the bat, which gets translated too "blah blah blah whine whine whine wahhhhhhh" after a while around here, since more than half the new threads these days are people whining.
                          Fear the Legendary Ninja Poultry.

                            There are a number of times I enter into a battle at the beginning and don't come back for nearly 2 hours. That allows that "having a life" thing to at least partially engage.

                            If I spent money for a refill and couldn't collect, I don't think I'd be too happy either.

                              The devs have done this for the past 3 arenas. You think we haven't complained at all in the past 2? We tried and tried to get the devs to listen or at least do something other than a Guild battle arena format. They don't listen. Also if you still really want to do arena, you can wait for 5 more seconds to collect if you really want to. It's a whole 5 seconds, its not like your going to miss a meeting because your 5 seconds late getting out of the door. You'll lose more time in traffic even if you had left 5 seconds earlier. I do 1 battle a day (2 if i get the chance) When i battle, i make sure that i have time to battle and collect and then i go back to my work. If you really want to participate, give yourself a bit of time. Otherwise don't complain about not being able to collect because you left a minute before you can collect.

                              Yes it's annoying if you have to go before the battle is completed, yes its more annoying if you refilled (one thing i don't do) But that's life. If you know that you won't be around in the end of the battle, you have to decide if you still want to join or not. If you miss the end, don't get all mad and angry at the devs. Calm down and rest. You decided to join and you couldn't make it back to the end. Who's fault is that? Yours.
