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.

  • Eternal Vanguard will give a glimpse at CA's popularity

    The first time EV came out, there were 541 people in the top 0.5% of Arena participants. The second time, it was down to 447. That is a drop of just under 20%. If we see something less than 447 by the close of this arena, we can pretty much assuredly say that the CA player base is continuing to shrink (if the 541 to 447 drop isn't confirmation enough). I'm very curious to see the numbers this time around.

    Well, I think it's a shrink of arena participant, not the total population per se. Maybe true, maybe false since we don't have enough data to actually know the total player population

            It could also be because Arena VI was longer than Arena VII. It'll be better to compare this arena to VI.

              Don't forget that people may be stacking up the fp from the promos.
              We are now at the halfway point of our disjointed epic. If you are just arriving, you have missed little.

                    Fixed that for you. So many variables on top of fact that it is around a major holiday. Or fact that some are just getting bored with same old format they have already done twice before just to name a few.

                      Well, even just the AV ranks have gone through the roof which means a lot of people probably left the game. over 14,000 points in 12 hours or 28,000 points a day for AV. That's even higher than the EV pace for the first 2 weeks of both the past 2 arenas.

                        Real player population might have dropped but surely net income hasn't.
                        And there's always the alts to make up for real players.

                          CA is listed as number 13 currently in the top grossing ios aps in itunes. It was lower (maybe 30? ) earlier in the week. It seems to be doing okay on the ios side

                            I'm not saying its not profitable - it probably is more profitable now than ever and I'm glad for that. Let's be honest, most people will sign up for Arena. The crotchety few that refuse to join are not rank and file CA players. If 110,000 people joined Arena 6, a 4 week arena around the holidays and we compare it to another 4 week arena around the holidays, we should get a pretty good idea what the player base is doing. If we see something like only 350 EV slots, then there is no way that isn't a reflect of a shrinking base. If we see 520, then I'd agree it's too close to tell. I don't know where the cutoff line between a clear change is or not, but the extremes are easy to identify.

                              I agree that the EV ranks could no doubt give an idea of player population at present. I just don't think player population is the metric that best correlate to game popularity.

                              Maybe for us players. But for the Developers is cash in hand and on that front CA is probably more popular than ever, which is a good thing for all players in general.

                              Interestingly, the EV ranks may also show how much the scripter population has grown. Hopefully the top rank is going to be so expensive that scripters won't be able to take the spots of this game's financial engines.
