Account crashing - game rules
« on: June 30, 2014, 09:02:23 AM »
Now back in the old days you could crash an account as long as the res was distributed to lower ranked players as DSP pushing wasn't considdered pushing. BFG happily allowed this until it was abused and not reported to them before hand getting the OK

So what happens now with there being 3 changes to the rules (DSP pushing & harrasment if the attack isnt profitable) and also excessive probing?

Part 1:

Attacker spam probes with his probes getting sploded on impact, we can tell its spam probes as the number of probes don't increase to get an esp report so the act of probing a second, third, fourth time etc is (a) pointless as no further info will be gained, and, (b) now falling under the harassment by way of excessivley probing.

According to the rules that is harassment for excessive probing - RULE VIOLATION 1

Part 2:

So attacker A lets fly on defender B, messaging in game so they know that they are online and with too little in the way of ships to make a dent in defender B? Defefnder B messages to inform of the fact that it is pushing and Attacker A messages back to say its not if no one knows about it

That to me is a move to get someone suspended as DSP pushing - RULE VIOATION 2

However
There were 2 other GA partners that added minimal fleet during the attack then pulled it thinking that the defender didnt notice (these would have been waiting on a GA should the attack have been reversed) but still leaving the original attack (clearly showing that a scheme has been devised)

does this addition make it a bona fide attack even if they pulled fleet? Is the attack itself harassment as it has been done with the intent of having someone suspended for DSP pushing as per the info in the messages sent. - RULE VIOLATION 3

Back story, the attacking player has already been suspended for organised pushing and on the surface this violates 3 different rules


Can someone please comment on what a defender should do in this circumstance? and also what is legal in the game etc


There was a bit of chatter about what could and what couldn't be done in game to avoid suspension so....................

Can we have an exact ruling please?

If you believe a specific player has violated the game rules, you can submit a ticket and we will look into it. We do not comment on specific incidents as you are asking us to here.

although this is a specific incident

lets just assume for talking sake that this is hypothetical


what is a player allowed to do and what must they do to avoid being suspended?


This has happened a couple of times now in uni 3 and no difinitive answer has come out of the dicussions as not everyone knows what they can or cant do
