      Re: The unspoken rule

      Guys, leaders of empires employ rules of etiquette for a reason...to keep the peace so their members can enjoy the game. There is a thing called a battle list. There are no rules or regulations on who to hit and when to hit another player...there are consequences. This game is the perfect example of "open world PvP". Some might like the cool graphics and the idea of being a part of something bigger in their life until that one day a person 1000 levels higher decides to farm them for a week straight. This is a perfect example of what upsets most people in this "war game": When somebody is constantly hitting you over and over it costs game cash to get out of the hospital and restore full health. If you just spent 20 bucks on FP to hit a boss in the chances of obtaining a cool piece of loot the person farming you makes it that much harder and sometimes impossible to utilize the FP bought.

      Only question left is why is this person 1000 lvs higher is hitting you? What are they gaining? There has to be something to gain. Some like the fact others don't bank their money and will hit that person until they realize they need to put their money in the safehouse. Some people take it to the extreme and use Hotwire to obtain cash against players that cannot defend themselves. This is where having allies comes in real handy.

      We cannot tell a person how to play a game in a "open world" PvP environment. That's why there are empires that defend others from the tyranny of those that defy common respect. My advice is to make friends and treat others the way you would want to be treated. This goes a long way in this game and can possibly put a stop to farming for whatever reason.

      When the wicked stand confounded, call me with thy saints surrounded is the motto I use because I only hit off the battlelist. I never hit someone more than once a day. If I play by these rules then others that play the same way will come to your defense. Hail Victory!

          Its a game who gives a fuck, does it really matter if you get hit by the team your warring with? Not really....


          About the battle list, my list is almost ALWAYS showing player 100-200 levels higher than me... why the hell would I hit off that? Please explain how the battle list is ok but everything else is not... its as broken as everything else in the game.

              Not for me, its the way I talk. Don't like it Chelsea, have me kicked. If I swore in a different language would you care? Probably not because you wouldn't understand.

                Noted. Forum rules are in FAQ. Further infractions or disregard for forum rules leads to its consequences. Thanks.

                  Do you remember of the last appearance of Theroux swearing in French? He got banned within 24hr even if what he said didn't make sense

                  Anyway, just like aprilwine said, it's a war game, you can do whatever you want, you'll just have to accept the consequence of your actions because it isn't true that no one cares. I personally never hit from battle list, but since I don't farm anyone, I don't risk much. When people PM me and complain about how/when I hit them, I simply answer nicely and excuse myself. If this method doesn't suit you, then you'll simply have more enemies.
                  We call this a "rule" because most of the time, when you don't follow it, you get hit by the other empire. Most Empires condemn PvP during war in order to dodge conflicts.

                    Ok, well detracting the topic of the thread in order to throw out little rules that nobody really follows could also be seen as an infraction. Derailing the topic of the thread, you could of at least commented on what I posted or continued the discussion. Notice, I don't swear in every post I make and you also don't cite everyone for swearing when you could have. Doing it when you feel like is simply childish, who made you a mod?

                        Some will hit during EvE and some won't. No written rule but it's an etiquette employed by a few.

                          Hitting 100 lvl lower doesn't change anything, you can still lose and you don't get any info on current eve...
                          This is the same double standard BS which makes this game a complete joke.

                          Yeah, hitting targets in EvE is such unsportsmanlike behavior but hitting hundreds(or a thousand levels) below you is A-OK. What a joke.

                          The only reason that "rule" ever graces CA is because of the ease of finding someone and farming a weak empire, with UE it is completely irrelevant due to the ease of finding any empire based on their rank etc and just using leaderboard to look them and anyone else you wish to bully up.

                          It is a stupid and pointless rule as dying in PvP doesn't have a damn bit of negative effect on your EvE battle, again another stupid make believe rule that isn't a rule( if the developer cared enough or felt it was a rule they would simply make it impossible to engage in regular PvP against the empire you are currently battling, then again that probably means doing actual programming work and not just paying freelancers to make artwork and reskinning your old game code)

                          I left my empire a while ago due to the kind of bullsheeit that some of you parade around the forums and apply in game, this ridiculous rule made to protect weak egos is just another in a long list of junk from this developer

If they are a 20+ BR that guy knows pvp lvl just means you like jobs/boss hunt to me not to mention the poor win/loss a down hitter will have is a dead give away he's weak
                            I like when terribly built LSI losers with hundreds of levels bounce on me, I take it out on their entire empire for days, sometimes, weeks.

                                Wow. LSI Losers? LMAO There are some solid BSI players in UE, but the majority of the ones who call themselves BSI, and go around trashing LSI....are just bitter that they played the game wrong.

                                "Can't play 60% of the game, have crap LT's and gear, can't get event LT's and get crushed by people who have been playing the game half as long as I have.....But my BSI is 7.8, So whats up!" - said no LSI ever

                                Sorry, back on topic. I think we're going a little far with this PvP during EvE thing. It's simply a show of respect to the other team and a dynamic that developed in the game to become the acceptable behavior.
                                Does it really matter if someone hits you during EvE or an hour after? Of course not. But this is a social game, and our little "society" has deemed that the norm.
