Scammers aren’t just level 1s with fake names. He was a a member of clan for MONTHS. Level 220 and fully geared and trades took place in Arcane after Gele was killed. A lot of scams have happened by people gaining trust and then abusing that trust.
5 months in clan isn’t that long lol. Just shows how far stupidity can really go. Don’t wanna get scammed? Just simply don’t set yourself up for a scam and hold onto your gee golly items lol. Those items are gone, no point in complaining about it anymore. It’s like listening to a bunch of lvl 50 noobs blaming one another for scamming in the castle.
Seems like this game clearly needs even more safeguards, cause people can’t quite play alone without otm holding their hand. Sure add a lending system, but to me it seems like a waste of time and resources that could be put somewhere else
My rule of thumb is never loan anything you can't live without as far as fame play goes. So while I've never and never will loan out my yellow yule wings, I should be able to loan out my strike skull and storm touch bracer to a clan mate (specially of 5+ months) without worrying if they're suddenly going to leave the clan with it and I'll never get them back.
We all have complaints about the game. Some complain about dragon eggs. Some complain about not enough mid level content. Some complain that casters can't use focus mord spears. Some complain about the lack of commas we used to have in AH. Some complained we didn't have an AH. And etc. Just because I don't feel we needed an AH doesn't mean those complaints aren't legit.
Do I think it's ridiculous that someone can fall for trading items to another player with a similar name and they don't check that players level before finalizing the trade? Yes. But, hey, why not add some safe guards in to ensure it doesn't happen and that players can get their items back and therefore makes doing this type of scamming activity not possible. I think fishing is stupid and a waste of time. But players enjoy it, so good for otm for institutjng something enjoyable for players.
But I get it. You think it's silly and therefore want to insult the people that want this type of change.
