    Game Admin Interference

    It's become public knowledge that Game Administration (1:1) are messaging provinces telling them not to attack certain kingdoms 'or else'. Is it just me or is this deeply concerning?

    I have from reliable sources that thejudge is playing 2 full kingdoms on his own.

    As much as its fun to throw mud at ZAWK, there must be solid proof!

    Oddly they destroyed the province after another attack was launched. I consider this one of the perks of a reduced 24 hour protection period!

    You are welcome to play if you follow the rules. Griefing is against the rules.
    A guide to SW's posts

    Regular text = SW as a player
    Bold = SW as a mod (used for mod requests, warnings, etc.)
    Green = Someone messed up the regular and bold text and had to get edited/warned/banned.

    Griefing? That's not how it works with attacking. Unless it's a verified multi.

    What if the admin has no clue that ingame is self-policing except when fake warring/multis are involved?

    At what point does retaliation become griefing exactly? Please teach us! Here is some sand to draw your lines in. Please beware of the lizards:

    And also …

    That's hardly an answer. You can't have subjective rules like that.

    Game Administration mail ordering not to attack specific kingdoms seems in contradiction to the game itself. Should moderators dictate who you can and can't attack which is what has occurred in this instance?

    It would certainly be a unwelcome contradiction in Utopia. I've come to look at the game in the same light as the other past clones though. This is a different game based on Utopia and she deserves a new name. In this thread, we will now offer new names for this new game to help ol' David out.

    I have from credible sources that thejudge isn't telling quite the whole story. Not that it will would make admins behaviour less ****ty.
