You know, saying it over and over again won't make people pay attention to you, Yannka. More than likely, it'll make most of us mute you so we don't have to see that again.

[Looking For Group] lavernica@maaaaaaaaarrr: llll 15k TR LFG MC/ VT/ SP lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

Same thing with this. It's just unnecessary. It doesn't draw the eye; at this point, most of us honestly don't bother reading through it and just hit the "Ignore spam" button, which gets the account reported. Find a better way to get your point across, people.

[Zone] Sarnsidous@p1s7ol: I once met a girl from ardulo. She loved putting things in her &)^#...
[Zone] Apophis@apophis101: ignore ^


Mm-hmm. Pretty much.

[Zone] rock@rottw: 15K GS PREFECT VORPAL LOOKİNG FOR DUNGEON
[Zone] Tom Ujain@trogers2: party time woooooooooo!
[Zone] rock@rottw: 15K GS PREFECT VORPAL LOOKİNG FOR DUNGEON
[Zone] Tom Ujain@trogers2: dread king come dance with us!!!
[Zone] rock@rottw: 15K GS PREFECT VORPAL LOOKİNG FOR DUNGEON
[Zone] Little Caprice@elmoregemstone: rock is reported for spam

On the other hand, apparently I annoy less than Little Caprice. I wouldn't have reported rock, regardless of how many times he said he was a "prefect vorpal" looking for a dungeon. He's just a Timmy power-gamer wanting a high-powered run, is all.

[Zone] Revenia@Lethargion: 15K GS DUNGEON LOOKING FOR PERFECT VORPAL

*snerks* Of course, sarcasm abounds...

[Zone] Grace Blackrune@sockmunkey: its darwinism. I figure if they arnt smart enough to know how to use the right channel. odds are they are too dumb to group with

This, however? Also a good point. "Zone" is general in-area chatter; "Looking for Group" is for finding dungeons and fighting instances; and "Trade" is for selling keys and specialty items for in-game currency.

[Zone] Apophis@apophis101: my logic also
[Zone] Gwynneth Lifegiver@iamnotahobbit: hehe if every spammer were reported the GM's would be spammed,lol


Well, and again, I really don't think rock's copypasta-dungeon-seeking was spamming, per se. But, while I do report all the spammers I see, there are lots I miss. And not everyone reports everything they see, so she has a point.

[Zone] rock@rottw: 15k gs dungeon looking for vorpal perfect
[Zone] Tom Ujain@trogers2: YEAH painsaw show us your moves!
[Zone] Grace Blackrune@sockmunkey: hey rock, in all that spam. you still havent said what class you are. ill wager it means more then your silly gear score
[Zone] Apophis@apophis101: he doesn't know what his class is....
[Zone] rock@rottw: lol ım a GWF
[Zone] Xatmo@xatmo99: middle class?
[Zone] rock@rottw: yeah apopis and u still dont know who is your father


Weak insult, rock. Really weak.

[Zone] Xatmo@xatmo99: my father is darth vader
[Zone] rock@rottw: good for you
[Zone] Grace Blackrune@sockmunkey: would of NEVER figured rock would be the dumb barbarian type. shocker
[Zone] Random Chance@Random_Chance: I have a lot of class...it's all low, but I've got a lot of it
[Zone] rock@rottw: yup grace.... and ı didnt know u were a $%*$)


Really, rock? Step it up, boyo, you'll never make points with cheap shots.

[Zone] Mtal Quickfingers@ben69b: no i think you meant to say your mom is darth vader

Also a cheap shot, but you know what, rock? As opposed to your grade-school chipping, that one shut down the conversation for a while. Moron.

So later, this happened...

[Zone] Evanduril@neurovirgin: hEY, could you help me please? I have one question.
[Zone] Evanduril@neurovirgin: i didnt get 1000 diamonds
[Zone] Random Chance@Random_Chance: why should you have gotten 1000 diamonds?
[Zone] Evanduril@neurovirgin: my wife did :)
[Zone] Evanduril@neurovirgin: and she was 1 level lower
[Zone] Random Chance@Random_Chance: why were you expecting to get 1000 diamonds? doing what?
[Zone] Evanduril@neurovirgin: i have no idea, why did she ?


Okay, so, brief explanation: after level 11 in Neverwinter, all characters can pray at shrines, healing campfires, or by rezzing out portable altars. This gives adventurers a boon from the gods they worship, an amount of astral diamonds (the Auction House currency), and sometimes a potion useable for protection or healing.

So if this person prayed, and didn't get their diamonds, that's kind of a big deal.

The answer, how'ver, had nothing to do with the game, and everything to do with current politics:

[Zone] Apophis@apophis101: for not working....like real life

Really?

[Zone] Evanduril@neurovirgin: she didnt do anything special
[Zone] Mtal Quickfingers@ben69b: daily prayer maybe
[Zone] Apophis@apophis101: don't work in real life.....go to social services office....get free $ :)


That's so not how it works, Apophis. But thanks for being a loyal, no-nothing drone of Fox News. Also, you're an ass.

And, lastly...

[Zone] Unuldor@derplurker: pvp=moar money=you win
[Zone] Celeste-L'Arche Doré@divine8soul: NEVERWINTER IS NOT REAL=SCAM


What the hell does that even mean? NO MMO is real. But that doesn't automatically mean they're scams. They're an alternate form of entertainment, just like paying for movies, or subscribing to Netflix or HBO.

Honestly, I think folks in Neverwinter are losing intelligence points...
