My first kill and ive got the griefer


#1

my approach to the game is to dont kill anybody. everyone should have a good experience with the game. after playing this game for a half year i was done with griefer. and today it happend. i killed a griefer.

i was born to this lovely town on europe-2. my mom was nice and did a lot to get the town running. she did a good job at the bakery. i had no kids for a long time. i got a son when i was almost 40 years old. i tried to feed him with berries by the farm so he will survive. my sister was nearby and had a kid too. we were lucky. she said she will feed the baby for me. she was such a nice sister.

after a while my son was old enogh to make his own thing. he did manage to get a bow and an arrow. he stood by the farm with it. people were asking why he did that. he had some lame reasons. and he didnt go away to hunt or something. he was just standing there by the berry farm. and suddenly he killed my niece. he said it was an accident. :wink: like griefers always do.

he didnt hide. he just stood there and tried to convince us. it was such a lovely town. and i hate it when griefer try to sabotage this. i knew there was a knief in town because of the sheep pen. i was frustrated by all the kills and griefers in this half year of playing. and then i did it. i cursed the griefer. got the knife and killed the griefer.

this is how i killed a player the first time. its sad i had to do it. but it means vendetta from now on. no more griefing!

Yes having multiple people armed helps deal with a murderer quickly. The best time to get someone killing people is when they are under combat stress.

Have someone risk getting shot/stabbed so the murderer can be dealt with, like a game of chess. They go for a pawn and get slayed by a knight.

I bet that this was the same griefer who claimed he was new and wanted to suicide. :joy:


#4

And how many of you cursed the griefer?


#5

Did the lineage end there?


#6

Or how many had a curse token available and used it.

@WumboJumbo yes i guess it was the same griefer. he talked in all caps like the last one. there were two female characters who could let the lineage go further - my niece who got killed and her new born baby girl. both didn‘t survive. so there was just me and my sister left. both over 40 at the time. so yes the lineage died at this point.

@Christoffer there was just me who cursed the griefer. i dont know if the others had a token left. in the aftermath he wasnt sent to the donkey town but at least he wasnt a threat anymore.

This is where the cursing system fails. Not because it wasn’t good enough. Moreso because people are not effectively using the system. When there’s a griefer in town everyone alive at that time can and should curse them. Babies and toddlers may have to wait a few years, but they should be brought to the griefer’s body (if they’ve been killed) to curse them.

I have been in far too many situations where there are MORE than enough people to curse a griefer into donkey town and only one or two actually curse. The rest are ambivalent, have used their token on petty cursing (I wanted that backpack! Curse!), or just don’t care because they werent personally affected during that grief. Next thing you know, poof! The griefer is born right back into your village!

I don’t know who I was just playing with but it was the finest example of organized effort against a griefer I’ve ever seen! Everyone cursed, and alerted others to do the same, which they did. That person won’t be seen in game now until they work off their Donkey Town sentence.

The curse system works, provided people use it properly. It never needed to be made easier. People need to be educated on using it effectively.
