You have to be careful about spam and such reporting. People get into arguments or the kiddies will lose in PvP to someone and spam report them in game to get them kicked for defeating them in PvP seen it done before lots of times.

Believe it or not, I had someone spamming me in Open Beta!! Like its ever going to be of use there!

Maybe an incentive scheme will remove these Ferengi dirt bags a lot faster... A small reward in game for each report that results in action. Be it credits, or items couldn't care less. I think it would just thwart these people a whole lot faster.

Not to say I won't be reporting any of them because I don't get anything out of it... Quite the opposite.

Nip this in the bud quickly.

I will be adding updates as I get them. By working together we can help fight this and make your playing experience better.

Is this really going to help? Maybe some? I have played many MMOs and for some this did nothing but force the farmers to continually create new accounts, which it seems they have no problem doing.

Have you thought about selling energy credits yourself??

Many people dont have tons of time to play and would be more than happy to shell out some of their hard earned money to help them enjoy the game more..

Why not make some cash off them to increase your revenue, and get more cash to pay more devs !!


I know for me it doesnt matter if you make your kid brother lvl grind your money.. YOu spend 100 hours a week doing it.. Or you buy items right from the cryptic store. It has zero effect to my play...



What does effect my play is being pestered by credit farmers and having to compete for space with them... Im happy you are taking steps to stop this.. It worked in starwars galaxies.. and other games, perhaps selling credits cheaper than you can buy from dealers is the answere

I`ve had so many 'Stogold' subject entitled mail items too, I have deleted at least 10 so far

Is there any way of blanket banning mail entitled 'Stogold'? They all seem to be exactly the same. Either that, or place a 'Report Spam/Gold Seller' button which removes them from the forum after so many reports or something

Nice to see its being taken seriously though.

Ive gotten dozens of gold spam mail already...
I report it as spam, and delete the mail...

Its quite annoying > Hopefully you guys can find a sound solution.
Maybe do something similar to eve online plex cards?

I didn't read the pages of this, but it would be nice if once we clicked Report Spam button it deleted the the message for us. Instead if takes a click to report, a click to delete, and another click to confirm delete.
