It's not "being better" when all you do is sit there and wait for a timeout because you suck to hard to win on your own.

When lame ass players skew the results, it gives a bad impression. Has the damage already been done? It appears so...

I've read all this and have some strong opinions about some of it. However I won't go into the arena aspect now.

I just want to say that when people complain about account sharing they need to be very careful what they wish for. Account sharing, account sitting, giving away accounts, selling accounts for both in-game gold/tcs and rl money, loaning accounts for pk redeem, clan sharing for alt wars, etc etc.....have all been an integral part of Nod since the game started. It's so widespread I bet there are few longish term players who haven’t been involved in at least one of the above.

The point is that if Glitchless should ever get serious about eliminating that type of thing, the repercussions would probably have a serious domino affect throughout the game. Some of those things I don't mind, others I'm very against. But either way it's just a part of Nod and it's very deeply embedded.

Glitchless makes money by creating a competitive environment. Whenever you pit highly competitive people against each other you are going to end up with people who are more concerned about winning than "the honor of the thing". If highly competitive people are willing to spend thousands of dollars of real money to win, they sure as heck will go to other lengths to win. Glitchless needs to somehow promote that competitive environment, yet at the same time create enough semblance of "fairness" so people don't get pissed and quit. Not an easy thing to do.

And speaking of "fair". That word can't even be defined.

no such thing as fair. Life is inherently unfair. HOWEVER,

in this game, Jeff is god, and what god says goes. So if god says this is your last warning to not throw games, then it is your last warning.

Personally, I don't care either way (because I am so weak I cannot even get into top 100s), but my interests lies in the continuation of this game. BECAUSE, if this game goes under, all the irl money i spent is wasted. I want to come back in 10 years and still see this game doing okay. That way, I know my investment today, has paid off in the future. In 10 years of passives, I should have some ungodly learning skills hopefully.

Actually I think I can... lol

"in this game, Jeff is god, and what god says goes" - terror

"you servile man" ... meaning he's calling him a suck up.


The rest is him bitching that there's other "criminals" in the game that arn't being delt with. ..I think.

Sorry Ark, too late to learn a good english. MAybe u can learn a good logic :P

Sharing account = unfair ?
Donate gold, trophies, epics, normal drops or other = fair ?

At least, when share account, ppl who loan account work for his own prosperity.
If donate to someone something that means u work for that person for free... but donation is not subject to law here.

Oh, you should have said that the first time! No one said it was fair in the first place. Should take some Reading Comprehension courses, too.

Now if you stop and think before you respond you may realize lashing out at any mention of your name isnt going to make you any friends, telling people how good your team is does not have any bearing on my post, bad english is likely to be made fun of, because someone offers a stratagy to your oponent does not mean that stratagy isn't of value and talking tough doesn't make what other people say automaticaly false.
Cock6, you know foreigners must lern2engrish before making sense, right?

Cut him some slack...

I will say this though.

I haven't really spoken on the whole situation, but I dont believe that buci's team should be permitted to get a reward for their arena participation simply based off of

A: How they even got to where they are, Having a bunch of people all sharing the accounts to stay in arena at all hours of the day, far and beyond what any respectable team ever could what with that whole... I think it's called sleep thing needed.

and

B: With the obvious numbers showing that they did in fact "set up" arena battles to alter the outcome of how arena should have progressed. If they did it for others, who's to say they didn't do it to get to where they are themselves.


Now... I realize that the first thing anyone is going to say is.. "well of course you want them out, that'd give you 3rd!"

I say that the 3rd place slot be blank voided. Meaning they may get 3rd, but they do not recieve any benefits of doing so. Not to pass the torch down to the next in line. I'm content with where I ended up, and I was kicked out of that spot. Fairly? ... who knows. But rewarding "foul play" with nothing but a hand slap doesn't deter from it happening again.

OK what im getting from this (don't get me wrong) is people are mad at them for account sharing? but you do have to admit they wouldn't be the only ones who have. im sure most of us have shared accounts at one time. but i don't arena much. fixing anything isn't right unless of course its a bug or error of some kind which this clearly isn't . then again the same could be said for boxing lol...

I will say this, from personal experience, I do know that some teams are throwing fights. There is 1 team in particular, and they know who they are, that should have beat the living snot out of us...and lost to us 3 times in a row. The first 2 times, because the tank wasn't taunting, and the third time, because the casters weren't casting. And the excuse the tank gave to the casters (because I messaged them asking wtf) was he went afk and thought they had seen him say that. The third time, (messaged them again), was that the tank had Q'd them when they were afk. This is not the first time this season it's happened, and obviously it will continue to happen next season as well.

Hey! We didn't throw those fights, we legitimately suck. And my teammates wander off all the time (the slackers).

Just Kidding, you guys are better then us. But my teammates are still slackers.
