    Exclamation Life Imitates art imitates Life

    Alright I've decided to weigh in on this thread and here's what I say about people who are resellers and who are scammers and what I might say might hurt.. But then I have a motto:Life Imitates art imitates Life

    And I'm going to prove this with what is going on in the worlds Current Events (namely the Pandemic of COVID-19/Ncov-Sars -2.)

    First off to the resellers I say this and I'm going to say it best.. You are like people who hoard Toilent paper and then turn around and try to sell it for an insane Price, and in fact I'm going to tell you a little story about a guy who actually did this in real life..

    Imagine a guy who has over 17,000 Bottles of Hand Sanitizer.. and that he's going to sell a bottle to you for not the usual price but up to 60 times the amount. Think I'm joking.. Note Serious face, cause I'm not..
    That's what happened here in the states when the national Medical Emergency was announced and one guy in Tennessee actually bought up 17,000 actual bottles of Hand Sanitizer was going to have anyone pay up to 50 to 60 times the cost.. and he would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for Law Enforcement who had stopped him.. I short instead of hoarding it, he was given one of two choices.. Either Donate the Hand Sanitizer to needy people or go to jail for 15 years.. No joke again. Yo ucan figure out which route he went with this.. he donated the hand sanitizer and saved himself a lot of Jail Time for Price Gouging.

    Then there's another fellow (Don't know what state this was but it was in one of the Midwestern states who was selling Toilet Paper out of the back of his van for 660 Dollars a ROLL 24 rolls of Toilet paper rolls on average costs about 10 US Dollars. and this was going to profit by trying to sell stuff at 60 dollars PER ROLL Now would you as a person buy from this guy Of course not.. So let's apply that to the state of the game and you'll see why reselling items (Especially sweat ) isn't going to ge tyou anywhere, and your reputation will be shot.. You do this to someone who needs to use a product and you mark it up 60 times and you will be shown the door, and be noted as such, yoour business will dry up and you'll start to prey on others and eventually people will get so disgusted with you that they don't want to deal with you.

    Is this what you want? If you do, then Go buy that 60 dollar roll of Toilet paper.. and then see what happens when you run out and have to go back gain and again..

    Then we move on to the next part the SCAMMERS especially the Trust Scammers. People that dod this are scum.. and in fact I got a real life case in New York City right now where some scammers are doing "Tests' which aren't real to see if you have the virus.. and well they'll stiff you for 400 bucks .. a test..

    Would you as a scammer but your trust that another scammer would give you a 400 dollar test to see if you have a deadly virus running in your body? Of course not..No one would except for these guys.. They want our money and they'll do it without a second thought.. Would you trust someone like that to say you're negative only to come down and end up on a ventilator a few days later and you are out 400 bucks? I shure wouldn't but people still do it, and that's why they are SCUM..

    So yeah do that to a guy who you built up your trust with and you're going to end up on that ventilator even though you paid 400 dollars for a test that was supposedly negative.. Think about that as you are gasping for breath...

    And if you think that was a kicker, how about people scamming people about drugs that are dangerous that they say that will cure anything.. These guys are snake oil salesmen and Sales Women, and well They are killing people.. would you put your trust in people like these ? You shouldn't have to go further than the President of the United States himself, the biggest snake Oil salesman.. Here's a guy who is playing doctor and telling people to take a drug that if done improperly can KILL you.. and already a couple of stupid people hav eand they've become part of the "Dead" Statistic..

    So yeah try that and see what you get.. yo might have someone actually show up and throttle you.. or worse.. And if you think I'm kidding I know of another story of a guy who trust scammed his friend out of a sword worth a lot of money in another game.. and the friend returned the favor.. by killing the guy who trust scammed him? is this what you want? To be a statistic for Ripping someone off? No one wants to die Life is too precious and in fact this is what I'm getting at..

    *Takes Deep breath*

    Now then.. do I make myself perfectly clear/ If not let me spell it out this way.. Life imitates art (The gme) and that could come back and b e applied by another person (in Real life).. so stop.. think, and consider your options.. Cause the next step you make might be your last.. or , if you are smart, you might not end up like these real life examples.. You might later say , "Wow I could have become a statistic..

    Money in the game to me Is irrelevant it's ll about the fun.. it's not a casino, it's not a way to profit, It is a way to have fun however and that's the point.. Life is fleeting and you can enjoy being with friends without having to interact.. or you can socialize without the fear of being infected without a virus..

    And yes I found out today that a well known doctor made a astute point.. we as a species might not be able to shake hands ever again.. that's a sad story right there.. if this si the case then let's say this.. "Let's shake on it and realize one thing..

    You cheat, or scam, you are doing to get hurt.. You don't and you won't.. Play fair and please be kind to other folks even if you don't understand their language that's what Google Translate is for..

    Enough said..

    This game is/was as surreal as the state of the world today.

    Hacks, bots, MA (or PP's whatever) loaning GM items to their friends....

    All we can do is vote with our wallets.

    imo the one video i watched is not clear evidence of botting... in fact this looks exactly like me hunting, keeping eu in a background window and just flipping over to hammer F, without paying the slightest attention to what's happening around me... possibly have annoyed others (unintentionally), but have not used anything outside of the tools provided by ma


    it doesn't matter anyway, there's zero difference between someone using a bot to automate their play vs someone playing semi-afk for n hours a day (or loading up the craft machine for 72 hours) ... other than the person botting is probably losing a lot more money than the manual player


    citing how other mmos handle things is not relevant since other mmos don't promote afk play the same way eu does... if you really feel ma should waste resources actively pursuing these alleged botters, then to be fair you should also petition ma to remove the auto-tool and the ability to multi-craft etc


    don't really understand these endless busybody threads...

    exactly.....
    Makes no difference to me if someone uses a bot because he can't be bothered or buys his wife a vibrator because he can't be bothered...his choice


    ..but I do understand those endless threads...boredome

    I realize it is not popular, but it is this. When it comes to markup, it isn't botters that ruin it. It is both the lack of demand and all the people who just have no problem undercutting by large margins - not just the 0.01%. The majority of loot is shrapnel. If they were wanting to discourage this activity, they shouldn't have made it infinity easier with F spam.
