Scamers what to do with them?

Post by Admin on 30th May 2013, 5:11 pm

Id like to hear from you about ways to deal with or prevent scammers.

maybe its a NPC or a change in the current NPC or item change.

Let me know what you think.

The game itself is designed quite well like when trading both of players have to agree to what they are trading before the trade is completed and I personally have never heard of an NPC that can scam. The scamming issues we encounter in the game are mostly due to:

1.New/inexperienced players trusting other players in suspicious deals that require the earlier giving his belongings to the latter in exchange for nothing or a "fake"
2.Players trusting other players with their belongings and/or account
3.Account trading/buying/selling

You should always be careful not to tap the "ok" icon while trading unless you agree to the terms of the trade. Don't place your stuff and then randomly tap "ok" without checking what the other player is trading. Some items may look the same and not have the same stats so you should always check the info of the item that is being traded to you before pressing the "ok" icon. You should also be careful with whom you trust. Not everyone is as trustable as you think even if they are your bff's. Lastly, I don't support account trading/buying/selling since you encounter the risk of losing your account or money even if you have a middle man. Unless you're 100% sure that the person you're trading with is trustworthy, I wouldn't suggest considering the trade.

Always be a smart player and plan ahead just incase.

The NPC comment was an idea of something that could be implemented to help prevent scamming. It could be something like an average price of sales or recommended price of certain items.

The only NPC to scam is the battlefield supervisor!

I dont think it would make much difference because nowadays people getting the wrong prices of stuff is not that common (except for that red beeswax incident a few months ago on devilang). It would be nice though cause you could compare those prices to bt prices and see if youre doing a good deal. I don't think it would help in the scamming section though. What would help in the trading/buying/selling account scamming issue would be making an account trading system like the normal trading system since there are many scams of this type and people refuse to listen to Com2Us about not trading their accounts.

And true that about the BF NPC scamming!

Yes, there has been a lot of incidents over the servers of people being told a low valued item is worth millions, the miss use of common temple IV book pages over BT seem daily practice on Turtlez both sides, preying on the unsuspecting noob.

Also yes, it would be nice to be able to have an NPC like the current traders but for your characters. it would prevent scamming but I think it would be a lot of work for TWOM to take on. I certainly wouldn't expect anything like that to happen for years if ever.
