If GM [Fugen] would have consulted with veterans or other GMs certainly they would have said : ‘venom’ or other deathly skils in the hand of a VGM which leads to kill players is not a good thing to do. The community once had this experience and has proven that VGMs characters can be hacked and used to killed an entire map of players. We also had problems with personal revenge of VGMs characters on some players using those skills. Precisely to avoid this, Acclaim took out the skills which can cause such incidents.
After Rules Enforcement by VGMs :
VGMs have been authorized to use venom in enforcing the ROC.
If VGMs catch you doing something you’re not supposed to, like BP SZ killing, swearing, etc. they can and will venom you, in addition to whatever other punishment you may be entitled to.
Yes, that’s right — VGMs can go into BP and venom you for SZ killing with a major penalty. This policy will be enforced across the board, i.e. Blacks/Whites/clan/league — it doesn’t matter what you are. If you are caught doing something wrong, don’t complain if you get venomed for it.
And in answer to the complaints I can predict coming — if you don’t want to get venomed/chatbanned/3-day banned/permabanned, don’t violate the ROC.
We have this :
VGM[Olix] killed a player that had a name alike to a gold seller. That player was not gold seller, was a character seller that belonged to a player with a high level. What can I comment? It’s a typical example of why such skills can’t be be given in the hands of people who do not know what this game is all about, whether or no VGMs or the head of VGMs. This is just the beginning, we will see more incidents alike in future. GM [Fugen] again slammed us a set of rules that force a policy, but no sanctions if that policy is applied in bad faith or in a wrong way.
What mistake did that player? He or she chose a name closed to the gold sellers? This is clearly an abuse and the fact that VGMs do the things in in an artificial manner and an example why Acclaim need to cover all aspects of application of ROC.
I belive Fugen has to give an explanation to that player and give a penalty for the VGM who killed him without taking into account that the player stood “a f k” without making nothing. A name close to the gold sellers is a reason to justify an abuse? Collateral victims or what?
