This post is Due to the recent topic about an autistic kid getting scammed and that it was being used as a levy to put pressure on OTM to ban a player. if Your case is true and authentic I am sorry . I am an overprotective person and when my kid brother (7) got fooled Ingame I was very frustrated that otm wouldn't do anything despite my mentioning his young age and not speaking the English language. So yes I understand the feels.
BUT BECAUSE it seems it has become a trend on many servers I am posting here to notify that many players are using mental disability , handicap, terminal disease , autism and such to put pressure on players to trade back an item or to win arguments or simply get their own way in a situation.
For example I went into argument in arena with another player, we exchange harsh words then suddenly out of nowhere this person accuses me of having insulted his delayed children. And threatens to report to OTM. Ok...
Another fakes a terminal disease and tries to win sympathy to 'borrow' items from players for his last happy times on earth...
Firstly there is no way for me to know how many kids you got and in what mental state they are in. You are just as shameless as that scammer if u are FAKING handicap to get your point across.
Edited for this other point i wanted to bring to attention:
Another case Is we also have people who are trully leaving game because of some serious illness. And opportunists who use other people's disability/ illnesses as an excuse to make money. Such cases where a few people were selling Celtic heroes game items for REAL LIFE money through Line groups and such to 'collect money to donate for the sick person (who quit game ) . or that at least half the sales will go to the sick person. whether true or not it will remain unverifiable unless you got the persons personal contacts.
So if U want to push for this type of threat please provide otm with a disability certificate. No player is responsible for not guessing what's going on with your personal life.
Scamming is a real problem and everyone is an equal victim wether u are as sharp as knife or a total airhead.
That's it. I just wanted to get this point across. U may delete or remove this topic as some will find it offensive.
