    Default "Scamming?"

    I've seen a lot of posts, and heard a lot of people in game, talking about being "scammed". They say someone offered to let them win points if they paid them with coins.

    Yet they get angry when people point transfer.

    IT'S THE SAME THING. If you pay someone to "lose a game" to you, then you are paying them to transfer their points to you.

    This has happened throughout history, and it has never ended well. Has anyone heard of the 1919 World Series? The White Sox scandal? Some players were paid to deliberately lose the games so the other team could win. Do you know what happened to those players? They were banned from baseball forever.

    Basically, if someone says they can give you 2 coins for every one you give, or will give you points for your coins, they are lying (normally). They won't pay you back, and they won't give you points. If they do give you pints, you are point transferring, and that is cheating. If they don't, then you are out your coins, and that's the end of it. Either way, it is a bad situation, so don't do it.

    There is one way to get points: Earning them the old fashioned way. If you cheat, you ruin the fun of the game, and take the competitiveness out of it.

    Coins come and go. Get them by winning and gambling. Don't go begging for them in the tavern. If you really want coins so bad, shell out and buy some. If you are only "one coin away" from a tank, go win one game, and you will have that coin. If you can't win games, then tanks won't be of use to you, anyway.

    ...........................

    ................

    Sorry if I seem mean or agitated. It just gets so annoying to hear people whining about being scammed. Wise up, and you won't be scammed.

    Basically:

    Don't give coins to people unless you trust that they will pay you back (with coins. If they pay you back with points, both of you are cheating, and the conversation is in the logs. Don't do it).

    ........

    To ease the tension, feel free to laugh heartily at my poem underneath this.

    But not points. Getting points should be about skill, and nothing more. If you have to buy your way into points, you disturb others hard work by pushing them off the leader board.
