Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- 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.

- 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.

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.

- 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.

  • Summoning new monsters and getting hitters without going public

    I think the title speaks for itself. It is the same "person" doing this on multiple accounts for our guild. This person can hit 1 within 5 mins after starting. It may be a scripted bot. Not sure, but we had a brand new player get him on his monster before he even posted public for the first time. Is there a way to ban someone who does this?

    Is this player's name Praetorian? I bet it is...

      Yep. Is it a player at all? And if not, why hasn't it been removed? No penalties for bots?

        I suppose it's a player, but definitely running scripts.

        He's been at it since at least Feb. 2017:

        (he used to be named ca_temp_first, in the guild Guildamesh)


        So I suppose we can assume nothing will ever be done about it. Which is sad, since the cheating is almost as obvious as it can get.

          If you believe that you have any evidence of wrong doing by anyone, contact either Gaea, GB, or the mods and your info can be passed along to someone who can investigate further.

            I guess what I find just as concerning is 1,000+ lvl players going non-public listed monsters that are less than lvl 20.

              I do remember Guildamesh guild. Tan was a player that scripted into Lotus every time I started one, again within 5 mins.

                If this Praetorian, is the one I have seen lately in guild battles, loner in the guild, then I have enjoyed squashing him before he gets a hit off. If it is guilgimesh, then so much the better.

                  I am hearing that the monsters involved are not only not public they are not in priority list and many are from toons that have never public'ed a monster or ever put one on priority list. On toon that are newly created on their second completely private monster he shows up...

                  But only on tiny mephs sylvannas, and an occasional lotus... Which is the subject of another forum interestingly enough..
                  Looks like its always a 1 stamina hit. BUT more recently they have started CTA'ing the monster if it hasn't died in a timeframe.. that's where it hurts the owner of the monster who may not have killed it fast enough..

                  the story behind getting more from baby mephs (which is a feature of CA) is here http://www.castleageforums.com/cforu...uous+levelling

                  if its being used as a way to level up, its got to be really slow. Getting 10 xp per stamina is great but the average toon has no possibility of getting enough monsters to make that possible, and how the post indicates "many thousands" of trials well I don't think I have hit more than 2000 monsters in all my years here..

                  Toon is Praetorian in guild Which guild.
                  and very related are the now 41 ca-temp-first toons in the guild GuildTY until proven innocent.
                  Just to see if they show up, I doubt messages to those small toons are ever read so don't bother..

                    I've noticed this Praetorian managing to get into my mini's Sylvana's recently. Never public. Never CTA'd. Don't believe Praetorian was ever in the army.

                    Very reminiscent of Ryan/Ryun/ca_temp_first and the guild Guildgamesh. I'm actually the one who started that thread that Gogoo posted about up above.

                    I see the Praetorian posting its army code in monsters -- without hitting -- just like the aforementioned used to do way back when.

                      Praetorian is Ryan - Keep link is the same.

                        I recently saw that Praetorian had moved to GuildTy -- and was retiring from the game. We'll see about that. If so, I wonder if all the scripting mini's will also disappear.

                          I'm pretty certain if you had a previous monster that he or one of his alts had been involved in, and he didnt delete it after it died, the new summons shows up where the dead monster had been on his monster list.

                          I have had monsters show up on my list the same way, sometimes before anyone had even hit it. Used to happen frequently in festival monsters.

                            He keeps entering private monsters. So do his minis. I have sent several screen shots and links.

                            Do not expect this to be solved. They don't care at all.

                              When did you do this ? I can ask Ghost about it. I know he said they were keeping an eye on him.
