Disclaimer: This is a loaded post. Although I do respect the rules in general I also have a personal beef with hiding certain information out of fear that people will abuse it. Because my personal stance in those cases is simple: instead of taking it out on the messenger (who also adds to raise awareness by providing proof of concept) get rid of the evil doers instead. If you don't have the manpower to do so; try get more (easily said than done, I know, really).I feel very strongly about this and shared my opinion. This is also as far as I'm taking it and I will not accept anyone to dive into this. I'll ignore and optionally report. Lets not go there people. This is my ballgame, not yours.EDIT: I'm not saying that I don't understand why EMC is doing this, I actually do, all I'm doing is venting that I don't like it. No more, no less.Because lets not forget one very important matter: this is not real life, this is mostly a voluntarily effort and most of all: staff does try hard to be fair. I am critical here, for sure, but not unreasonable. EMC has gained waay too much respect from me for that.But I will share this. And I know this is not pretty.I sincerely respect the new rule about the event chests. In all honesty it only saddens (and disgusts!) me that players would actually stoop this low to take advantage of other players.Within that context I applaud the new rules. I do have some personal hiatus with getting moderated for repeating things which I saw both Aikar and Kryssy say (here, I've said it) but rules do change. I do not like what happened, but all I can think of is: "Gee, this is a much bigger problem than I could have imagined", and that saddens me. I don't like being moderated, I shared my issues, I do respect the taken actions. I'm clear.However...I know I'm playing the devils advocate here. And the only reason I do this is because this IS an issue with new players. One I've seen many times. Honestly (no bias): I can almost see this happening every week.So I do need to ask: Why is it still ok for EMC itself (/shop) to "misinform" players (not making it more obvious that /shop is overpriced) so that they risk losing a LOT more of their money (within context) than the current event chests would do? In my opinion this shouldn't be too hard. Even a message sign buried under the /shop spawn point would do the trick.It feels a bit double edged here...Disclaimer: I am being very critical here, but don't even try to use my post as leverage to start a bash or flame fest because I will personally and relentlessly report every post I'll find. And I can be quite the fanatic.Disclaimer 2: I am quite the critic but I still love EMC as much as I did yesterday. And the day before. I don't hate, but I will be critical if I feel I need to. But if I do: with all due respect. I'm a critic, not a fanatic. Well... not when it comes to criticism, playing on EMC otoh... I honestly don't like posting this but in this case I feel that I must.
