Scammers on newb chars getting blocked; creating new chars to spam again, getting blocked and again and again....

So what would be a good idea to CCP or the community?

 

*close local chat asap?

*limit local posts to characters older then 6 months?

*introduce a chatfilter from anyone younger then 6 months? (would introduce lag though)

*never visit Jita?

*change Jita to a 0.0 system

 

 

 

Just before you jump into Jita, minimise local.

Since everything posted in Jita local is a scam or people calling out scams, you will lose nothing of value.

I didn't say abolish it altogether, I said, that scammers have NO FEAR, of the GMs, and, Devs. And, that the GMs and Devs aren't willing to put the fear of  banning in the game, because of those scammers. What angers me is the stupidy of the GMs and Devs to make the excuse that its allowed in the real world, and, that no one has been caught doing scamming in the real world, WERE AS, the real world, scammers in some countries, are locked up for several years, or, worse, depending on the scams, lose either a body part, or, even worse. And, that's what I'm suggesting. If they want to make the excuse of the Real World applications, then, maybe they ALSO, make the crime of getting caught fit the real world politics.

In a scenario like this, nothing is more powerful than players educating players.

Something to consider is that Jita is not like Orgrimmar or other static dev-created trade hubs. If Jita becomes a hassle to trade in for any reason, trade will just move to another system.

Jita is its own best example in that case, as it only became popular because the previous hub, Yulai, was no longer as accessible due to a change in jumpgate routes.

I would argue that it does already.  Those that commit the crime of getting scammed pay the price.  Working as intended, nothing to see here, please move along.

some scammers are just plain retarded though, had this one muppet in local claiming that if you send someone 9999999999999999 ISK it will transfer a duplicate amount of what you have in your wallet. Told him to prove it and gained exactly 5mil isk. I mean come on, if he'd given a rounded number it would have been slightly believable.. well probably not but it shows just how idiotic they are.

 

Simple: if you fall for a scam then dont play when your drunk, or keep all your money on a bank character so when you do put your retard hat on, you dont lose too much.

Scamming is as much a game mechanic as infiltrating alliances to rob them blind in a few years. Scaming will not go away, personally I love looking at all the scams. Everytime I hit a trade hub I check as many of them as I can to see if there is a new scam out yet, and applaud the scammers with some enough initiative to actually try. Favorite I have seen as of late is a Complete Tengu with all subsystems and Modules for cheap. Except that all the Subsystems are Skillbooks. Love to see scammers who actually bother to try. Too many people just begging for money playing the same I'll double any isk amount you send me.

scamming is part of the player interraction.

 

not being scammed when you could have easily been does wonders to player connections.

I hate to say this but that's like asking how to get rid of PvP players in a PvP zone.

Don't  go there.  Anything you want you can put up buy orders for , set up a buy contract for or buy elsewhere.  Jita is a "convenience" shopping place and only on a few items are prices better than you can find elsewhere.

As such, there's no reason to go there beyond convenience shopping and even then - just don't pay attention to Local.  Ignore it and you'll be fine.

Again, I hate saying it but seriously - why the hell are you reading that spammed garbage in the most famously trash-talking system in the game?  It's like complaining bout the old "crossroads local" in WoW -- Don't use it and you're fine.

Oh and yes, you can adjust a "local window" so it doesn't show the text but still lets you see war-targets and the like in system.  A very handy thing to do.

Why would you even bother with looking at the Local chat? Haha everything you need can easily be accessed in the market tab.

This ones been around for a while. My only real issue with the scams are the like the ones you just stated. Some of the scams are just super hard to read out because of how they are displayed in the UI not neccesarily because someone is completely oblivious. That type of scam you mentioned is teetering on exploitive in my opinion. Only because the game itself does not display the information on contracts like that correctly. If it straight up read Tengu subsystem skill book instead of just Tengu Subsystem then I wouldn't be so negative towards it.

PM before you report at least or you could just block.
