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.

  • Master Apprentice FUBARed

    Ok, I registered on the forum just to post this, so I expect an answer, thank you very much..

    Who's the GENIUS who decided it was a good idea to only allow players less than level ten to be apprentices?? Hello??? Everyone who WANTS to play the game is already PLAYING it!! I know, let's all get our friends to make fake accounts so we can add THEM as friends.

    Change it so that apprentices are limited to within plus / minus ten levels of the master.. that's too annoying, maybe within 50?

    You should thank me for not cussing yet..

    Another problem I've read about, people can't change or delete their master. You might want to fix that too.

    Here's you're 'Oh yeah, that was kind of stupid' award.

    ---

    EDIT: Another bug reported by flynavy3:

    Lots of ppl are getting 'no such friend' errors or something to that affect when accepting requests

    EDIT 2: Actual error message as reported by eric654 here..
    http://www.castleageforums.com/cforu...ad.php?t=22166

    "We are unable to verify that your account is an authentic Facebook Account"

    EDIT 3: Also under the category of 'Missing Functionality'.. The link to the help page offers absolutely no help or info regarding the Master / Apprentice system.

    You registered just to post something that's currently active in ten separate threads with the exact same gripes? You're probably not gonna get a direct answer. Hardly anyone ever does.

      Your 1st post wow and already whining And now I get to be the 2nd to respond....hmmm...who knows why these things are? Or for what reason dolphins swim in the ocean? Why don't they fly?? In any case...the Devs are mystical creatures who reside over the Kingdom of Castle Age.
      Does the sword ask the Master "who gave you the right to have power over me"??!! Just get used to being let down somehow...roll with the punchs...I'm sure this won't be your last response on what you don't like. Incidentally...theres a thread for whining...you may want to give it a hug

        Well thanks for not completely acting like a troll..

        ..but what exactly was the point of that post? I started a post in tech support to get it fixed, as opposed to having 'ten threads' full of people whining about the problem.

        Well at least the thread got off on the right foot. Geez. You could at least post something useful like 'I agree / disagree with you because..'

            The search button is your friend (even if the captcha system sucks). Nothing more to say here, everything has been said in the other threads already. Stop spamming, thx.

              My only gripes are this:

              1) once you accept a master request you can't get rid of it.
              2) 3 apprentice slots is waay to few. I've got lots of friends on CA
              3) seems like there are several bug fixes still being worked out. Lots of ppl are getting 'no such friend' errors or something to that affect when accepting requests

              I'm hopeful the Dev's will listen to our gripes and make this a worthwhile function. I have been nothing but happy with the latest developments, such as raids and new property system.

                Because it's not a tech support issue. It's you having a different opinion about the game than the actual developers.

                So whether or not I agree with you (which I do, actually), it doesn't go here. It goes in the suggestion forum, where there are already multiple threads concerning the situation where I and many others have stated our opinons multiple times.

                  Live in production bugs are not tech support issues???

                  Buy a clue, and kindly follow your own advise and stop spamming my thread with useless posts.

                  flynavy3.. Thank you SO much for the info, I've added your item # 3 as a bug to my original post.

                  I do have to disagree with you on item # 2, that's a game mechanics issue. If the devs want 3 apprentices, we get 3. The other issues? Bugs and broken functionality which needs to be fixed.

                  Thanks again.

                  EDIT: Sorry Kisoda, I thought you were the one that posted about spamming when I wrote that, my bad.

                    This isn't spam. This is a disagreement. I disagree that your original reasoning for posting (i.e. 'this is stupid' which is not the same thing as 'this is broken') belongs in the Tech Support (aka 'this is broken'). Now that you're ammending your post to list actual bug problems, you're getting in the right gear to keep it in this forum. Which is a good thing.

                        Actually this is stupid can be the same as this is broken...and i know about trying to do suggestions on here as well as attempting to report tech issues and no matter how you word it you will always get the one 'troll' that will attack you over the post being in the wrong thread. Now as for the reason of my post....

                        I think that they did have a good idea with the idea of Master & Apprentice but they did drop the ball on the under level 10. I have read and have been asked by several people if i know what is up. They are getting invalid account errors as well as invalid friend. I do think that they are the same thing but I am not 100% on that it is my opinion. I do agree that there should be a 'windfall' of levels aka a level 50 should be able to join as apprentice to say a level 60 or above. This is only going to cram the Facebook servers with alt accounts as well as the forums with complaints till it is either scrapped or fixed. I do hope it is fixed soon as i have several of my friends that are willing to come over to play Castle Age and 3 are not going to till i get back to them that this error is fixed one whom has been in Facebook for over a year and only recently started playing the apps and joined CA is level 8 and is still getting the ''unable to verify as a legit account"

                        Again I say this is a error and should be fixed but as with anything opinions of the masses mount to nothing even if we are the ones who pay to buy favor points we are still ignored by the devs

                          Thank you for the insight Raistlin.

                          I'm still absorbing what little info there is about the new functionality. Searching the forum for 'apprentice master' reveals a handful of fragmented info.

                          It does seem like there is a lot more to the Master / Apprentice system than meets the eye. However, it does feel like we're being forced to 'beta test' it.

                          At any rate, I'm not ruling out that someone didn't drop the ball somewhere, and it was originally supposed to be limited to within 10 levels. That still seems way too restrictive. If I had a 'Mentor' or Master for my level 75 character, I would rather they were level 125 or so, not level 85. and for those folks who are level 400ish, finding anyone who is level 390-410 would be a complete pain in the rear.

                          It's disturbing no matter which way you look at it. At the very least it's going to annoy enough people that they will eventually figure out how to make their own apprentice accounts. You know, the sort who read a TOS as a challenge?

                          Anyway, thanks again.

                            Getting the same account can't be verified msg!!

                            I am holding off on leveling up so I can be an apprentice for a friend but on the master/apprentice page there is a message saying that Castle Age can't verify I have a legitimate FB account??? Since it is my account how do I fix that? Or how long does it take them to 'verify it'????

                              I get apprentice on my list after I invite them. I discover one thing. Castle age might checks for below to confirm your account is legimate or not.

                              - active wall post
                              - some friends list
                              - active log in and out
                              - different IP than master pc
                              - level less than 10

                              Only fullfill the above requirement, you only can add an apperentice. It is to prevent fake account created by player to assist his own account.
