PostSubject: Wolfpacking   Wed Jun 06, 2012 12:22 pm

This is an entirely new cocept to me, but i hear that it is a problem. A problem that would allow you to get banned from the game. Now! WE ARE NOT NEVER ADMIT OF ANY OCCURRENCE OF WOLFPACKING ;D.
_____________________________________________________________

There is some unwritten rule that is being enforced by the Supremacy 1914 admins called "Wolfpacking". According to the Terms of Service (ToS):

13.1 The Participant is aware that he uses Supremacy together with many other Participants and communicates with different Participants when using the additional services. In order to achieve an enjoyable gaming experience, it is necessary to adhere to the rules of the game. The Participants accept the rules of the game and the ToS as binding. The Participants will follow Bytro Lab’s instructions which will be provided by the game supervisor. Additionally, the Participants will refrain from any conduct which may interfere with the operation of Supremacy and/or the additional services and which may disturb an enjoyable gaming experience.

The bold face area is what the admins consider wolfpacking.

I'll give you a few examples of what is definitively wolfpacking:

7 people from SNA becoming allied with each other and unite against all pubbers (public players).

A bunch of SNA members joining a game late (like day 20 maybe?) to help eliminate a disloyal ally.

Here is what is not wolfpacking:

3 SNA members becoming allied in a public game. As long as these players also play games alone too.

Many SNA members (4 or more) join a game but treat it like a regular game and do not ally with all the SNA members.

The difference is only "alone"? Because I play some alone lol

The admins think that if a formal alliance unites to take out all pubbers that is wolfpacking. This the admins believe it disturbs an enjoyable gaming experience hence, is a violation of the ToS.

Also the admins say that in public games alliances can't be predetermined.

Even a smaller number of people in a formal alliance can be considered wolfpacking, if say 3 people from the SNA were all become allied to unite against pubbers in many games.

There is no magic number of alliance members uniting together to define wolfpacking.

If you are still unsure of what is wolfpacking or not wolfpacking. Then you should message Rage or Euphoria and ask them to give you a few examples of what is and what is not wolfpacking.

Moreover, the wolfpacking rule doesn't apply just to alliances. If a group of real life friends unite and gang up on players they can be punished. This however, is harder to prove as they mite not all have the same tag next to their name.
