    Since griefers ruin our games, and sometimes there is no admin there to stop them, I thought it would be wise to create a backstory to this problem.

    Years ago, my people flourished in the middle ground, a peaceful tiara, where water flowed like the bloodstream of our desires. When the war came, we remained neutral. We did not care about nationalism nor cared for rebellion. All we wanted was our land, our sanity and our freedom.

    The first dark tanks of war came in October. They trampled over our homes, and engulfed our cornfields, hoping to leave a barren buffer where nothing survived. They bombed and destroyed everything around us while littering our streets with numerous recruitment fliers.

    The crimson warriors were no kinder to us. They plundered our livestock, stole our sheep, and hid like spies within our town. They killed any who dared to join the ranks of the Empire. Much of our youth were lured away either by force or lies, to be trained in the wilderness as one of them.

    When the Jekotian started to launch sneak attacks from our town, the unforgiving Empire responded with heavy bombardments, destroying our memories, our families, and what was left of our humanity.

    By winter, what was once a thriving settlement, turned to rubble. Those who survived pledged vengeance to all. And so that day came, when we were ready. We dispersed, drew up new identities, and joined the ranks of both Empire and Jekotian.

    We sabotaged their war effort, creating uncertainty. No longer were their fortified bases secure, no longer did their top generals live in safety far behind the front lines. We became the lords of anarchy, the daemons unspoken.

    The Mobile Armor Division, with all its tanks, knows of griefers.
    Such numerous tanks require fuel, ammunition, and support...and in the presence of greifers, all fail to reach the front. The tanks are stalled.

    And so with a heavy heart the Armor Division turned on itself, its upper echelons decimating all Imperial and Factional soldiers alike who were accused of griefing on its homeland.

    And so it began, the legendary M.A.D. Server Purge of the Griefers.

    acknowledgment

    and, yes, we must pretend the griefers dont exist! Because.... because if we put them in our storyline, they are suddenly real... tangeble! No longer can we deny their existence and ignore their plague upon our community! No this travesty cannot be tolerated :rolleyes:


    srsly put this in. and put the tag as
    "Excerpt from the Memoirs of the Grieved"

    Just let this thread die. It was a dumb thread to begin with, and it was dumb to necro it just for the sake of saying that Empty is a griefer.

    I have to agree seems that they are given a justification.

    Maybe if the fact that the greifers comm preformed fellatio on a gun barrel and their smoke defense failed. or something along those lines.

    Although I'd do !ban @griefers 0 "Griefer"


    Imagine the following situation.

    BE heavy tank with duel HE staring at a scout next to a wall (the scout is totally out of ammo for every weapon).

    BE tank says to scout: Griefer. Scum. Garbage.

    Scout says to tank: I dare you.

    BE tank fires. Two HE shells slam into the scout.

    BE tank says (to world): Dead griefer... Better then a live one... Still scum... Still garbage...

    Gotta love a thread that is barely in the correct forum, has been necro'd not once, but twice, and is about developer malaise about griefing and exploits.

    5 stars.
