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
great first steps lack, this is a wonderful start to resolving a very difficult situation.
thank you for taking the time to poll an actual sample of current and former players to find out how farming truly affected your amazing site, and then taking the measures to begin to snuff it out!! thanks again!! wonderful start to resolving all this!!-0
