Agreed.

I guess at this point it should be noted that Angel Blue is still (s). There could be a couple reasons why...

1. BFG is backed up on tickets, might be taking them awhile to get to hers.

2. BFG has released the suspension, but she hasn't tried to login yet.

3. BFG agreed that it was a valid suspension and it hasn't expired yet.

I actually placed that in order of likelihood.

I guess there will be no redemption for AA today....questions still remain.

So...we've had the questionable circumstances on 5/21/2011 and the circumstances of about a month ago.....and now the circumstances of several times before....

Yet AA believes it's all very innocent.

So.....when does AA start believing that they have a cheater in their midst? When does AA start to care?

Exactly how obvious does it have to get before AA disavows the actions of people cheating in their alliance?

When, Andy? When?

Oh....never.

I forgot that you made that clear throughout this thread. You will NEVER acknowledge what is obvious to everyone else, and that's ok....cause we will know the truth. Even if you don't acknowledge it.

wait how is missing a capthca cheating? whether intended or not should have no bearing if the person is cheating. also (s) doesn't = cheating you can also get them for foul launguage and spamming.

wiped? 2k dios.... she loses more in 3 days mines (cuz it was a friday) that those dios and res are worth. and it only takes one missed captcha vs 11 failed. if she filled in the first one and didnt see another tab that had one its instant suspension.

there are players like that, victor. but angels pretty level headed.


hmmm - have to disagree there - angel is def. not level headed.... she has shown in the past that pettiness is in her vocabulary....

Well... It sure didn't take you long to come boasting and accusing on a public forum without knowing ALL the facts.

From what I have seen, you did get a LOT of DSP and a huge debris field. How much was it again? 10 million or was it 15 millions.  There was no reason for her to try to cheat, as you imply, because she lost a heck of a lot and your profit was quite substantial.

With a 6 second margin, she was nervous and trying to practice how to get out of it quickly and missed a captcha. So, before accusing people of cheating, why don't you shut your gob and engage your brain to consider all the possible reasons and implications??  Uh??

See you soon!!!

Today a member of the AA alliance used a Captcha suspension in an attempt to save their fleet. It partially failed.
Still they were exploiting a bug and should be reset.

:evil: It was an unfortunate incident... it really wasn't about the loot... but the interruption to the flow of battle.. I watched this unfold from the Galaxy screen and I know the parties involved...

 We can't know how good the lock is.. we can't know a lot of things... as I said before... would have been nice for the (s) in the middle of events to have not happened.. but it did..
