Hijacked Community Thread

My question is:
Do you guys have annoying dumb**** marketers in your server? Lightning server is so ****ing irritating.
For example I would say
"SELLING>> EXEMPTION TOKEN 999 CPS"

And as soon as I try to market ANYTHING I get heaps of whispers from presumably arabic players with:
"Exemption token for"

And that's it. That is all they ****ing say.
WHAT IN THE ACTUAL ****

Any further response from me either makes them repeat themselves or they start talking in their own language.
Seriously, 100% of my whispers are from people like this. And it may be around 20 people every hour trying to buy my stuff. Either that or they will say
"Exemption token offer"

And again, no matter what I say, whether it is the price or whatever, I get some stupid ass response. They don't say "no thank you" all they say is "thank you". Again, WHAT THE ****.

And to add further insult to injury I get these dip**** offers like "30kk". Let me explain...30kk is worth about 500 cps in my server. That's only half the price. I'm seriously going insane trying to sell stuff. No English buyers whatsoever.

So I'm wondering, what is the best way to deal with them? Are there any translators available? How can I get my message across? Seriously the lack of english players in my server are haunting.

In Light server (EU) we have another kind of annoying ppl

When you enter in the market some noob start trade you for show his stupid (and useless) items (dragon soul for shield, +1 items, refined gems......)
he try to trade again and again and follow you for the whole market.....
we need a button for forbidden trade.
question: if you blacklist a char (chat filter) i know that he cant whisper you but he can try to trade or it's forbidden too?.

"item" for , is fill in the blank WITH the price. if you already said your price and they still do this, they are asking or hoping you would lower your price.

marketing, is what i do all DAY.

it is really interesting interacting with people of different cultural background.

you really have to have an open mind and try to figure what they are trying to convey to be able to close a deal.

it is fun.

The buyer must have planed to sell it for 1500CPs

Put your items for the price you want and ignore any whispers.

Yes, ALL the time. As others have said.. they want a lower price. The best part is when you tell them 999 cps, they say 500 cps or "bb" and you tell them "bb" and then they say "ksomok" whatever that is.. I think kos?

I just remember to myself that, the market in this game.. that is egy everyday real life.

not only when trying to sell stuff.... I killed somebody the other day because they killed me when I was autohunting.

I don't think it would work if you were to "type" a7a, but if it is sent to you from an egy and you copy + paste it, it works..) in the end, he told me the equivalent of "my father is with your mother!". Man, those cultural differences lol.. that wouldn't really be that big of a deal here, and it means nothing if you tell me it on a game. There in egy? maybe you'd kill his father or something because it would be bad.. lol.. but to me? "well, okay.. sounds good bro. I hope they have a good time together!"

The Egys are always looking for a lower price... no matter what you have something priced at. You could be selling it for 2k cp one day and an Egy will offer you 1,500 "or bb"; you refuse and come back another day, unable to sell it, and list it at 1,500 cp, an Egy offers you 1k "or bb". The solution is to overprice it by 25-100% to begin with and wait for one to offer you around (or more than) what you want.

For some reason most people on my server sell stuff illegally for real money ("bara el game" to be more specific)...For that reason i always turn off the world chat,to bad you can't turn off broadcast as well...

Yeah and for the whisper spammers there is the block button :P

Why don't you just respond quoting a higher price every time they message you? That's what I do if someone pisses me off. They quickly realise that you are not about to sell your item for the pittance that they have offered you.

I do this haha, all i get back is the ksomok and a bunch of arabic crap





Also, while we are kind of on the subject: What about the people that spam friend request? They always spam you like 10 of them, I've even had like litterally 50 friend request from the same person. Luckily, you can keep clicking the button for the request and just keep clicking no instead of clicking the button, no, clicking the button, no, etc.

if you really try to understand how people behave the way they do, its kind of amusing.

Well most servers the egys try get everything half price and then sell it at double the cost. I knew someone on crystal went from +6 to +12 doing that...

Typical conversation with an egy in the market:

S>+12 blade, leave a fair offer.
blade +12 offert
Simply tell me your offer and I'll get back to you
ok
so?
offert blade +12
YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT TO PAY
30db ok LL
err?
ok or no
no
bb noop *** yuu
bye.....

an hour later...

blade +12 offert..

Also I LOVE how egys have "buying" prices and "selling" prices... normally 50db difference on a +12. It's crazy!
