Warning, angry rant incoming...
Some pretty ignorant commentary in regards to itsme5712/warflower...
Jealousy? Butt hurt? There is no basis for such juvenile comments in regards the community position towards this player.
Let me preface this by saying that I have ranked top tier in this game twice as many times as 'she' has, having earned more cards than she has BOUGHT in the space bridge. My reason for commenting has nothing to do with jealousy. I have never sought a first place finish in any event. Why? B/c player 100 gets the exact same rewards as player 1, albeit with a lot more money left in their wallet. With that said, I am jealous of NO ONE. Arrogance is not a trait that I admire. I don't pine over the fact that I actually have principles and integrity. Let's be honest. ANYBODY can be a DOUCHE. No skills are required.
Butt hurt players complaining, boycotting, whatever. Not that any facts have been stated around those circumstances, but what does boycotting have to do with a cheater being banned? Are you implying that b/c 'she' spent money and boycotters didn't that the infraction should be overlooked? Here's the thing. Itsme5712 was buying from a gold farming site,i.e. Mobage wasn't getting the money. For every $100 she spent as compared to the average player, she was able to make 2-3 times more trips through the in game space bridge, or purchase 2-3 times battle cubes. How? $100 bucks spent with Mobage nets you around 10000 coins as compared to around $100 spent via the farming site she used netting around 20000 coins for her. Buying in bulk from the farming site resulted in even better pricing.
Before any boneheads claim that it was a smart 'shopping' decision on her part, Mobage is on record stating that they DO NOT authorize the purchase of in game content by using ANY 3rd party sourced coins. FURTHERMORE, the method in which 'she' acquired the in game currency is a violation of Mobages Terms Of Service. She is on record admitting to doing this. There is evidence of AT LEAST $800 in purchases from said farming site. There is/was no witch hunt, simply people that wanted justice and fair play. She claims that she spent quite a large sum of money legitimately directly through Mobage, which may or may not be true. Regardless, her credibility is forever tarnished, and Mobage made the right move by banning her the first time. Mobage cannot operate their business and maintain any credibility in their games by allowing dishonesty and shortcuts among players.
For those anti-Mobage minded folk who feel Mobage had it coming, how about the players that perhaps spent similar money who might have placed higher than her? How about the player who placed in position 101 and was robbed of the top tier finish and rewards? What if they money they had spent netted them twice the resources? How about the players who knew of her methods but refused to copy them out of honesty and integrity? If you still don't see any wrong in her actions, then your parents have completely failed in raising you.
Winning by any means necessary is the attitude that has been adopted by the trolls that supported her. Hustling gift cards, arguing against morality, spamming and trolling player profile walls, all done by her closest associates. On top of all that is the arrogance with which she carries herself. Proclaiming herself queen. Stating that she brings fear to the community. Making and posting childish videos taunting other players. Total garbage.
As for boycotters, educate yourself. A large part of the first boycott was in relation to the gambling aspect of the space bridge, not to mention its cost. There were other issues as well, including mid event changes to boss stats to shake down players for more money, issues with the game locking out players during an event costing them their standing, players who had cards and cubes randomly disappear from their accounts, as well as many suggestions to improve the games features. It is also noteworthy, that a large contingent of folks that supported and participated in the boycott were regular RANK 1 PLAYERS. These were not bitter players who continuously failed to find success in the game or were unable to invest in it. Also to CLARIFY, people who just happened to be boycotting didn't complain about itsme5712 b/c they were jealous or butt hurt. Players, such as myself, boycotted BECAUSE of her. Not only do I refuse to compete with ANYONE who does not play by the same rules that govern everyone else, I REFUSE to listen to that individual and their squad of troll cheerleaders parade around arrogantly with some distorted sense of accomplishment. In spite of what 'she' and her posse may think, they are not above playing on equal footing with everyone else. Either we all have equal opportunity, or shut the damn game down.
If you are interested in improving the game and making it more accessible to players, I suggest you look up some information on the current boycott of the game to find out what it is all about. You can do so by checking out the TFL Boycott page on facebook. Rather than make stupid comments/assumptions about the people who started or support the campaign, why not find out exactly who they are and how they are fighting for honesty, integrity, and improvements in everyone's gaming experience.
/rant. I feel better.
