A question on espionage harassment
« on: July 14, 2010, 01:41:46 AM »
A Player (Destructicon of the Greywolf alliance) has been sending a few dozen espionage attacks on a world of mine within a 20 minute period.   This is of course pointless and just meant to harass (and against the rules).   I do not consider probing harassment, I get probed and probe dozens of times a day or more; this is something beyond that.

   Any ideas on the best way to force him to stop?

I think he's just trying to help you remember to fleet save.

Wait until he forgets to fleetsave and destroy his probes.

Have you tried humor? Comments like "oh goodie, PROBE PONG" work for me. I generally respond to a probe with a probe. Not immediately, maybe in a few hours or wait a day. No sense in giving away online times.

also if someone thinks your using a alert script  they will do this for days at a time but most of the time they will do it more often that every 20min

I usually respond with 'i want dinner and a movie before you probe me mister' that usually shuts em up or makes them laugh, also increase you esp...crystal donations are donations after all.

This is a possibility. I've done this; if I think someone's using a script or phone app to notify them of probes/attacks, I hit them every 15 minutes to annoy them into turning off the script.

If I probe someone and they message back its obvious they online , I have no problem with that or  the witty banter that follows either , but jeez do some winge about it .
I want to know what fleet you have on the ground , I want to know what your neighbours have on the ground .
 If you care about your fleet it wont be on show next time I probe.
Hardly harrassment .
Its part of the game .
