n00b farming

Postby a.sub on Sat Jan 17, 2009 3:05 pm

do not allow people to gain points from players too far below them:
the main arguments with the you cant play people X levels below you is that some players have friends that low. for example i wouldnt mind having my ass handed to me a few times by some high ranked players.

Specifics:
i say we form a middle ground between the two sides, simply, players can play anybody, but they cant gain points from people if they are a certain number of ranks below them. the poll above is asking you to vote on how many ranks below you have to go to gain no points. say for example you chose 8, then if i were to play someone 8 ranks below me or more, then i cant gain points, but i can still play them. also this will only affects points, things like medals and % won and % of turns taken etc. just points.


This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • prevent n00b farming

i will be honest, i was too lazy to search for this before hand, and if it was already suggested i apologize.

something tells me that you kind of missed the big new year's announcement from mt. turtle... i doubt any other changes on newb farming will be made until the effects of lack's new policy have enough time to shake out. here you go, a link to the thread about the new newb farming policy on cc:
posting.php?mode=quote&f=1&p=1773003

and while i'm at it, why don't you just read what lack had to say about it all... you know, just incase you are too busy to click on that link and take a few moments to see what has been implemented to try and solve the practice of newb farming...
lackattack wrote:"Newbie Farming" is the technique of setting up as many games as possible (either by starting or joining them) with New Recruits to gain easy points by taking advantage of difficult game options and the fact the New Recruits are more likely to deadbeat. Some players have been farming extensively - even sending hundreds of PMs to the latest members to get them into their games.

This is a gross abuse of the game. It gives the New Recruit "victims" a poor first experience and reduces the chances of them sticking around. As farmers move up the scoreboard it also harms the competitive nature of Conquer Club - the scoreboard is meant to measure skill in the game, not "harvesting" techniques.

In accordance with the desires and feedback of the majority of the community, our rules and as a new leaf for 2009, it is our New Years resolution to make Newbie Farming forbidden. Members who continue this practice will receive point resets and then progressively longer website bans.

This does not mean you will get in trouble for joining a game here and there with many new recruits. We are only talking about the systematic targeting of new recruits.

We have taken the following measures to stop Newbie Farming:

  • For New Recruits, we filtered out game options from the join page if they reduce the chance of new players reaching their 1st promotion (see here here and here).
  • We shut down any usergroups with a focus on Newbie Farming.
  • We are sending individual warnings to the Farmers Guild and select other users who have practiced farming in the past. These should be arriving soon.

If you don't officially receive a warning, consider this it...we may have overlooked you once, but we won't do it again.

Thanks and have a nice day :)
