Player who I believe to be harassing me: Rise of Diusi
Trying to mine Orichalcum, in Restless. Minding my own business getting mining to level 200, player comes down, see me mining. I call him out of previously saying he has a mining bot, to which he then agros all the mobs on the ship, and within range to come down to where the Orichalcum is and argo on me/knock me off the mining so he can come steal the ore. He’s been doing this for the past 20-30 minutes (I have video evidence, it just won’t let me upload)
I mean, I do know how to respond to it, hence, I got some of the resources. It shouldn’t be legal as it counters the Code of Conduct. Also, not at all toxic to call someone out on anything. How is calling someone out inflating my ego? Also what high horse, I don’t think I’m better than him, so what are you on about?
It would be legit if it wasn’t considered griefing, which is against code of conduct. Also how is calling someone out childish? Where has all this entitledness come out from? But it’s whatever we all have our opinions and at the end of the day, it is what it is
Can we just admit that you obviously got lippy with him via chat, they came and decided to introduce you to some friends. Its a PvP centric game, IDC if you dont have your tag enabled, you already stated you called him out, and im not buying you were polite about it either.
Either way you got your 2 cents off and then they did the same. Call it a day and move on.
Considere by who? Aggroing monsters into competitors is not griefing.
I don’t believe it would make sense to consider this an act of griefing in this particular game. With that being said I my personal opinion counts as musch as yours: close to nothing. Still, unless clearly defined as such in the code of conduct such behaviour cannot be considered griefing.
It’s not subjective and it has nothing to do with “your world” normal. Some people break the rules but it’s not your job to tell them off in the real world either, you don’t have any authority or prerogative to do so. You report them to the relevant authorities, THAT is your prerogative.
The moment you exert authority based solely on your own belief you become just as much of a douchebag.
A griefer or bad faith player is a player in a multiplayer video game who deliberately irritates and harasses other players within the game (trolling), by using aspects of the game in unintended ways, such as destroying something another player made or built. A griefer derives pleasure primarily or exclusively from the act of annoying other users, and as such is a particular nuisance in online gaming communities. To qualify as griefing, a player must be using aspects of the game in unintended ways to annoy other players—if they are trying to gain a strategic advantage, it is instead called “cheating”.
