    I spend a lot of time gathering evidence for the GMs, but the GMs don't care. o_O

    Do yourself a favor, bot & box and report yourself you'll get a kick of how long it takes to get anything done.

    No they don't. Maybe the ones on Aradune do, I don't know, I don't play there. But most boxers on most servers don't do these things.

    This isn't even possible, because the raid bosses don't belong to anyone.

    Good, they can't do much without that.


    This is all supposition on your part, your accusation that GM simply don't care lacks any depth of understanding of how difficult their job is.

    You seem to think that your report of a player should absolutely result in you being able to observe that accused player being banned.

    That's not how this works 100% of the time.
    An accusation of cheating is not proof of cheating.

    Sometimes the person you suspect of cheating really wasn't cheating
    Sometimes cheaters are able to convince the GM they were not cheating
    Sometimes the GM is unable to prove that cheating took place from the evidence provided & their own observations do not support the accusation

    Often to catch cheaters out, especially the really good ones, the GM need evidence from many players, over time, along with their own observations to finally nail that sucker.

    And even when they get nailed, cheaters can be back up & running in short-order.

    Again, what tone are you getting from it? I see a frustrated player that was sold on a premise that could never be achieved. Given that understanding, I can see the perspective where the expression downright criminal can be used.

    If you determine that you can't provide the services as advertised, then you have to make adjustments. Ultimately, its unfair to blame people for complaining about the ruleset that was sold to them.

    All of the boxing, botting, and cheating complaints and the overall more toxic environment on Aradune can all be blamed on DPG. They advertised the ruleset to appease that segment of the game and sweetened it with the temporary GMs dedicated to the server.

    DPG built the fire, poured the gasoline, and lit the match.

    Nearly every report I file is marked as "solved" without the GMs solving anything. They say "appropriate action will be taken", and nothing happens. It's fraud. It's lies. They are supposed to enforce the rules, but instead they protect those who break them. I think they earned the right to be called criminals.

    You did both. Implying his posts aren't worth tolerating because of their message is simultaneously attacking the message and the messenger.

    Maybe you should take a hint that no one besides you cares that people play more than 2 toons on Aradune?

    The lack of enforcement isn't a matter of difficulty. Even if you give them a really obvious case with solid evidence and lots of time to look into it, they will still almost always do nothing.

    Stories of the Hidden Wisdom from the Oral History of Rakis:


    “There was a man who sat each day looking out through a narrow vertical opening where a single board had been removed from a tall wooden fence. Each day a wild donkey* of the desert passed outside the fence and across the narrow opening—first the nose, then the head, the forelegs, the long brown back, the hindlegs, and lastly the tail. One day, the man leaped to his feet with the light of discovery in his eyes and he shouted for all who could hear him: “It is obvious! The nose causes the tail!”

    This is the only server with a 2-box rule.

    Then by all means, please continue doing Lord's work and report these scum boxers!

    Imagine spending this much energy going on witch hunts instead of just playing the game. Hah, pathetic.

    You can count on me!

    Sounds like your upset you lack the ability to control more than 1 character.

    It was pretty obvious from the start with the temporary/trial verbiage that was tossed around that the enforcement of the rules wasn't going to last forever. I know they say they don't want to change rulesets once they're established, and that is likely why the 2-box rule still technically stands, but I think the best thing they can do at this point is declare Aradune a standard Truebox server after PoP concludes. It's obvious they don't have interest (or likely resources) in manually enforcing the ruleset. Also, if this has set a precident, I don think you will ever see a 2-box server ever again.

    This. Anyone expecting extra enforcement after the six month initial "extra" gm period expired deserves to be disappointed.

    The 2-box rule is what Aradune is all about. There's little point in having Aradune at all if you take that away. I know the GMs will never actively police the server, but they could enforce the rules off of player reports if they wanted to.

    Regular GMs that did their jobs would be sufficient.
