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.

  • The Seneschal's Query

    "Here is the ancient scarlet egg you wanted; stolen from the pirate king Abbathas."

    "Thank you. I'm going to hire a galley, set sail for the deepest waters, cast a hatching spell, and throw the egg into the sea, as the ancient parchment directs."

    "I don't understand. What do you gain from casting away such a priceless artifact?"

    "The egg hatches into a full-grown wyrm, larger than the length of any galley, sinew and scale coiling in the froth. Upon seeing it's benefactor it goes into a raging frenzy and attacks me, seeking to pull me into the dark waters of its birth."

    "Madness. You'll have to kill it to avoid being killed."

    "Why yes, but the carcass reveals what I'm seeking. Precious artifacts, golden orbs of virtue, the only treasure from the sea worth finding!"

    "Ye gods. Favor Points!"

    "Yes, points of favor from the gods themselves. I should get 2-4 beating hearts from the dead worm, each with a chance of dropping 1-2 golden orbs, if I but cut the serpent at least 234 thousand times or more. Less than 234 thousand wounds and there will be only 0-2 demislots with the precious ore."

    "So sayeth the ancient parchment?"

    "So it is written, and to the end of my days (unless there is a nerf), so shall it be done."

          ???? I thought it was rather clever.

          Of course nobody is holding a gun to your head to read it and comment on it, especially in a negative way. And also, learn how to spell e-x-a-g-g-e-r-a-t-i-o-n.

          My question actually is, why would a mod move this from Strategies forum to General Discussion?

              This might be the best response to a terrible thread I've ever seen on the internet.

                The thread is terrible, except for the witty and wry comment on summoning in castle age we find in the OP.

                Should I have included, "I have 516 favor points?"

                    I guess I should have added that I have 520 favor points, 4 from my last batch of seven ancient reds collected between the time I posted 516 and now.

                        And do you really think that anyone understood what you meant by that, oher than people who already knew the significance of the number 234,000 when it comes to red serps?

                        Threads in Game help and Strategies are supposed to be helpful, not confusing I imagine.

                        Edit: your target audience* probably doesn't know what a demi slot is either.




                        * I am assuming you were actually trying to teach someone how to get FP from serpents and weren't just trying to annoy and troll FP farmers that already know what to hit a serpent for.

                          I'm actually conflicted about 234k damage.

                          About 1 time in 15 or 20, usually when I get too many critical hits, I get only one demislot to drop even with more than 234k damage.

                          However, spending 5 more stamina per serpent to avoid a 1 slot drop is too expensive for the return, and I'm not sure that it even would work if I get 'unlucky' and land too many critical hits, if critical hits somehow don't count as damage on a serpent.

                          I'm averaging 1 favor point per 4 serpents, or 130 stamina, over maybe 1500 serpents so far.

                            Basically the way the post was written will boggle many a mind. Only those that already hunt serpents and have the action down to a science would have completely understood. I get the role playing aspect of the post, but it's not clear enough what it's about for newbie players to follow properly. Hence it's move where the prose could be better appreciated (or not as the case may be).

                              the mechanics for fp drop has been globally changed at least 3 times.

                              the last global change switches fp drop from damage based into stamina based.
                              there's a secret group somewhere who has a large data collection about it, one that which you won't be able to join anytime back, soon.
