    TGIF! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    Player Bans October 11 - October 17

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    New Limited Items!

    A new week means new Limited Items! Here’s what’s up for grabs (tomorrow!):

    Happy weekend, players!

    This week we've had a lot of tickets from players who are feeling frustrated by frequent combative actions.

    You are probably familiar with it, but for anyone who is not, griefing is a general term for when a player is targeted with heavy numbers of battle actions. Griefing is pretty normal in games where players are highly competitive or when someone has a bone to pick.

    Within the limits of our games, griefing alone is not considered abusive and we don't take action on player's accounts simply for heavy attacking.

    However, we do recognize that sustained griefing can get a little old for the person on the receiving end. This is why our games include a variety of mechanics that help limit aggressive actions in certain scenarios. There is also a Protection http://support.kanoapps.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/97/0/zs---protection feature that allows temporary blocking of someone who has passed certain action thresholds.

    We also know that some players are not fans of Protection or the other game mechanics designed to shield lower levels and less aggressive players. The current system is designed to strike a balance that allows the vast majority of our community to play and have fun.


    who doesn't get why some people like candy corn, but is happy to donate any that comes her way.

    Hate to say it but it's not at all balanced. It is not helping the ones that are getting picked on it is only helping the abusers.

    Currently we have several complaining of being griefed but the systems do not help them at all rather it gets them killed more.

    The ones using it are aggressive accounts taking advantage.

    Since you brought it up..... ;)

    i agree Alter, there are a lot of griefers that abuse it... i thought we had a simple solution, use protection lose the ability list... any1 getting griefed wouldn't have a problem w/ that, would they??
