Can you explain what you mean by “criminal record”? What’s a criminal record? As I understand it works like this: after a predetermined number of curses, as you explained, the “convicted” goes to donkey town and drops one curse for every hour of play. They continue, even after they get out of donkey town, to drop one curse for every hour of play with it the regular community. Let’s say… Jane Doe Eve gets cursed by three of her kids in one life. She continues to play and lives two more full lives. At the end of those two lives she’s dropped two of the three curses she picked up. Correct? So her “criminal record” would be the remaining curse she hasn’t yet dropped, is that what you mean?
That’s not at all what happened. I received two curses both from the griefer I killed and another person who, for all I know, was in cahoots with the griefer since, when the griefer was discovered that person refused to curse them.
No way did I get seven curses in 24 hours as that was the only cursing I’d experienced in the past week with the exception of being cursed once by a griefer I cursed several days ago.
It’s TOO EASY to use cursing as a method of griefing now, especially with people coordinating on discord. The problem was solved on the PC version with the original curse system. Why is the community here not finding it sufficient as it was? From my experience, they dont properly use it.
Jason was reluctant to introduce the curse system at all since he didn’t want to interfere and solve the community’s problems for them. He reluctantly agreed. Here, people are demanding easier and easier methods which are, quite frankly, ridiculous, and they are STILL complaining. Because they don’t want to kill the griefers themselves? Because their community isn’t engaging in using the cursing system properly and effectively.
If I got sent to freakin donkey town after TWO curses, and who knows, maybe they had their grandkids curse my dead body after I was gone, then for sure griefers are going to use it to their advantage. As they obviously did today. The system wasn’t broken before this last “fix” and now it is. People have mentioned positive points, some called it karma, before in these forums. Donkey town should be reserved for the worst of the worst. Not productive, skilled players who get attacked by griefers with the very thing that is supposed to protect the community FROM them.
