[Rules/MED] Cheaters should be stripped of their medals

Postby Symmetry on Wed May 02, 2012 8:46 pm

Players found guilty of cheating should be stripped of their medals

Mets` suggested phrasing: people who are busted for cheating should have all Game Achievement medals stripped.



Current Version: Medals gained through cheating either should or could be stripped.




Previous Version: The general opinion so far is that medal stripping should be a punishment, and the discussion currently concerns what category of cheating should be dealt with, and whether certain medals should be excepted.

My thoughts, as a whole, are that all medals regarding standard gameplay should be stripped, and that it should be reserved for cheaters who use multis to manipulate the system.

I didn't know getting stripped of your premium is considered light... or getting website bans.

Peruse the C&A forums, you'll see the argument made.

Anyway, medal stripping seems like a good secondary punishment.

why do you care? you dont even play this game you just come here to talk crap in off-topics.

the current system is good enough as it is, being stripped of premium is the worst consequence of cheating and if they buy it back it benefits the site as lack gets more money.

Kind of a cynical take, perhaps I like the site for my own reasons, including that members can contribute ideas on how to make the place better.

Medals should be earned fairly, IMHO, and that means doing so without cheating.

I consider "getting stripped of premium" a light sentence, you can simply buy it back.

I think cheaters should lose their medals and their points, can't buy those back.

Cheaters really f*ck up this site, why should they simply be able to pay 25 bucks and continue where they left off? Hit them where it hurts!

Not too mention the fact that many honest players lose their points (and medal chances) to cheaters....

Depends who you ask. Maybe someone with spare money doesn't really care, but that teenager who had to ask his parent to use the Credit Card might not think the same, especially if they get busted a month or so after upgrading.

Now that you know that people consider stripping premium membership as light, will you reconsider your opinion on the suggestion?

do this 1 month before your premium runs out it costs you nothing because you were gonna renew anyway. :evil:

I didn't ask anybody, I gave my opinion.

Stripping Premium alone is seemingly not deterring users from creating multies.

I agree, premium isn't enough.

I'll bring it up with the other hunters/C&A mods/king achilles.

Is it only multis you are worried about? The OP was kind of vague. All sorts of cheating can occur: If you are talking about multis, then that's one thing, but if you are talking about farming, then that's totally different. What cheaters do you mean?

Any cheating that gets the user points, medals, any advantage and results in a disadvantage for other users (points lost, etc.).

As for multis, the rule on the home page seems very clear to me, however, it's not enforced. Offending premium members are NOT banned, they can simply buy back premium:

Warning: Having multiple accounts is considered cheating. We routinely scan for multiple accounts and offending members will be banned from Conquer Club.
