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.

  • New achievement reward for assists

    While I understand the origins of the game in pvp many players these days enjoy CA for co-operative play. It would be nice to see some good rewards for players who perform significant numbers of siege assists.

    Keep in mind the players who are doing large numbers of assists are generally NOT the sort of players to get rewards via pvp play via building rank as duelers.

    Capping rewarding siege assists at 100 (for a mere 5 favour points) is perhaps akin to capping battle rank (and rewards) at First Knight!

    Not against the idea of more achievements, it's good to have something to aim for. Just wanted to point out that if people like the co-operative play, helping friends and army members, then they don't really need an achievement for it, since they'll do it anyway. The reward is in helping your friends.

    Saying that, more FP/SP are always welcome.

      much in the same lines as Zar stated..I too wouldn't have anything against an added award..but there's a lot of truth in the statement "the reward is helping your friends". Plus your already getting the added bonus of getting assists on your own monsters if your thoughtful enough to leave a return the favor link while your building your own assist count. Again, nothing wrong with getting the achievement strung out a little bit more, just doesn't seem like it should be anywhere near the middle of the DEV's to do list with all the other issues out there

                It's not nerfed - I can still see it.

                10 sieges - 1 FP
                25 sieges - 1 SP
                100 sieges - 5 FP

                  This was maybe a year ago when this happened and the FP given was a lot higher.

                      He's saying it used to be higher than it is now, not that it's been nerfed recently. And it was a whole lot higher - I can remember that I got either 20 or 30 FP for one achievement that was subsequently nerfed not long after its introduction, but I couldn't remember which achievement it was. Since dragons are still at 25, it must have been that one - and since I was probably around L300 when they came out, that would have been the easiest one for me to have gotten quickly at the time (since everyone's count for everything was at zero at implementation, no matter how many qualifying things we might have done prior to that). Would probably have to go look at old threads from when achievements were launched initially to be sure, but I definitely do remember one of them getting nerfed pretty heavily after I'd gotten it.

                            I'm actually glad I didn't see that thread at the time - it was definitely easy to get the 100 assists without cheating, and I'd have been pretty offended to have been basically called one. I was a member of WPII at the time; 100 assist-clicks in a day or two was actually pretty routine even before there was an achievement reason for doing it (which is probably why they nerfed it). When you were getting 10-15 messages per day, each with 10-15 monsters in it, it added up fast.

                              People say that helping your friends should be enough reward in itself. However, in a suggestion thread about achievements for "x duels won" nobody says that beating people should be a reward in itself. I am all for this encouragement of more CTA's.
