      I also do not believe BA should get their ranking and rewards based on what was done through RMT by their leadership. I would argue that because the guild leaders decided to RMT, it's strategy for RMT impacted the difficulty of scoring season points for their guild. Since most of the season, their points they earned were uncontested, I believe their strategy for denying content so they can RMT more in the BZ had a significant role to play on them getting first place.

      Most of the season points BA got were uncontested during the season. Mass allying their competition and cluster queuing zones with a "anything to win" type of strategy is generally not what players who play games for fun would do. If not for pushing an ulterior motive like making RL money, this strategy of denying BZ content would not be as effective and score them so many uncontested season points. I would argue that BA go out of their way to deny content, because it helps them generate more silver for them to RMT. It just so happens that mass allying their competitors, and cluster queuing zones until their competition quit the game just happens to make it easier for them to get #1 in the season. Since most of the points earned were uncontested, they don't deserve the rank and rewards for the season for breaking this rule.
      The mass coalitions didn't allowed us to sit on uncontested castles and outpost the whole season neither territories. This is simply a false statement that i could simply debunk by sharing a screenshot of the amount of castles and outpost flipped this season by our members.

      The big enemy coalitions did contest our territories but failed on the zvz events so they couldn't get our storaged points generated by our territories that were raided 24h7 btw.

      Six alliance that is divided into two (one north and one south) were ratting our outpost and castles at every timer wich made us forced to reclaim all of those at every timer thanks to our solo flippers.

      Your statement also implies that BA paid real life money to everyone that we allied and that helped us trough this war and season wich in itself is a RMT accusation without proof and is a bannable offense as you're accusing other players of RMT or accepting real life money as a trade without providing any proof to your statement.

      As previously said in another post : "At this point you are a philosopher, whose central idea is cheating. Everything can be explained with it, and everything can be related to it, and it becomes the main means to justifying whatever you want to deem unjust/evil, etc.

      And I am mildly amused by the fact that you conveniently missed my post, which was giving you a well formulated argument from straight up, fact-checkable SBI standpoints, and the community effort made by an overwhelming postion of the BA/F guild folks, who had no knowledge of who and if were RMT-ing. Just let me add here, when BA folks knew that there was RMT aboard, they reported it. It is not a wildly known fact, but when Durateen (who is likely the reason behind banning the leaders for assisting known RMTers) actually played in the guild, he was indeed reported by BA members multiple times, until he fully disappeared, and noone knew his characters anymore.

      What you are doing is literally the same thinking that, if a building block is known for a weed dealer who has access to it, then all the homes can be raided every time weed is found in the vicinity. If BA is still the proverbial enemy to you knowing this, you are delusion"
    • It's well known that Durateen hasn't had a character in BA since he was mass-reported at the early onset of the Last War and instead stayed in smaller SQUAD guilds to play under the radar. And since Durateen was banned because someone traded him tainted silver (something that also happened to a lot of other people including some well-known individuals in Albion), he wasnt handling money directly anymore.

      I actually do not believe BA had any significant large scale RMT going on. Maybe some members bought silver, but a CTA warrior guild with no taxes only regears their people from three sources of income which exist for BZ guilds: mammoth pups, owning city stalls, and rental programs. Considering the average amount of BA deaths across 5-6 CTA's per day, any significant diversion of their rental program funds would have bankrupted the guild as soon as stocks dried up.

      You simply can't regear that many deaths without sustainable income or a mega-stockpile or a big credit card swipe. This is a guild that was taking 300+ deaths daily during the SQUAD vs POE war, then went off to fight ARCH in Martlock while fighting us in NATZ (again, +200 deaths per day), then joined the 1st Anti-POE Coalition briefly, then joined with POE to deal with RAID & CALL Anti-POE Coalitions with huge casualties.

      I know how much that shit costs, because I know where and what my silver is doing. Frank Sinatra understands because he is in the same position, SBI & the rest of you chucklefucks that aren't in those positions simply don't and cannot comprehend the level of expense these guilds go through over a sustained period.

      Ergo, this whole shitshow is a PR stunt, a very obvious one since you went into your usual turtle mode and stopped replying. Selectively naming and shaming guilds and individuals like this is actually against so many laws its not even funny. People already got harassed on their other projects on gofundme because of your actions. If Pareille had 0,5 grams of brain she would sue you and collect a cut of those 100 mil € (assuming you havent snorted it away by now).

      Was it really that important to flex on a dude that quit the game? Considering if everything is actually true then surely he liquidated all the assets before quitting right? So where did the BA give-away come from? Did BA have a GM character to spawn resources into the world for them? :D

      @Syndic stop crying about how much it costs to maintain a guild, etc.
      if you can't afford it stop taking 1/2 BZ and play on 2 clusters. :whistling:

      I have nothing to cry about, my organization model is scalable, profitable and sustainable.

      I simply find the whole lack of comprehension entertaining, and I find the circumstances regarding Mojo's ban to be an insult to intelligent thought.

      "We have 100% waterproof evidence that we can't show but we will name and shame" cool story bro. Naming & shaming by a player volunteer resulted in harassment on gofundme when one of your players decided to call a CTA to mass-report someone because of in-game grudges. None of your business right, cause its not happening on your platform?

      "EVERYONE KNOWS BA RMTS" is a thing because SBI has REFUSED to enforce their own TOS regarding players harassing and slandering other players, so jilted ex-members make 10x reddit accounts and spam defaming posts on Reddit until it becomes the "mainstream truth".

      The consequence for SBI however (which I told you a year ago during a RT call) is much more dire - your game's reputation is going to slowly morph into one where Albion becomes the equivalent for RMT and shady shit, and that kind of bad rep will in the long run dry up the pool of new players.

      The saddest thing you dumb fucks don't even realize is that the people in your game you have those little 1 on 1 phonecall sessions about development, are past the point of playing your game for fun. They're playing it to ruin the game for "the enemy", and in that mindset manipulating you is simply a means to an end, same way they manipulate the same 300-400 stupid dipshits with a new hype guild with the same leaders same officers same people that happens to be broke and needs donations every season cause "this time will be different".

      All of which was pretty fucking obvious when the dudes spent 30 minutes of a RT call crying their eyes out about BA setting homes in hideouts and promised everything would be fine if you just made this one teeny tiny change.

      Bottom line it is a fail on behalf of the new community manager. They deliberately named Blue Army and attributed banning to them. Had SBI followed their policy as they had done over the last 5+ years and not naming individuals/guilds, this entire post saga would never have eventuated. This is a lesson learned for SBI about choosing your community managers. Make sure they adhere to the company policy and do not let (perceived) agendas overrule historic approaches.

      These bans were decided on the company/management level, including the statement that we issued alongside.

      As a general point, also stated above, it's quite obvious that we did not do enough to combat more sophisticated RMT in the past (i.e. the type where the organisers make sure that their game accounts stay out of it). The challenge here is that investigations are complex and take time, and we only just recently expanded our team size and capabilities enough to run them on a larger scale.

      Also, note that we have received note that some parties being concerned about our expanded efforts are trying to push certain narratives such that we back down (something about "bad PR for SBI"). The chance that this is will happen is exactly 0, it's quite frankly a good motivator to do better.

      You don't understand the problematic so I'm gonna explain to you thoroughly.

      RMT being bad and getting people banned is indisputable and not a topic that is even up for discussion.

      THE ISSUE with your actions is as follows in simple terms;

      1. Name & Shame

      - You breaking company policy of no-naming and no-shaming directly and instantly resulted in every single member of BA/BAF being witch-hunted.
      - The aforementioned breaking of company policy and witch-hunting directly contributed to a part of your community taking the witch-hunt out of game and CTA-harassing a gofundme campaign started by Pareille and X other situations that are happening even now.
      - Out of 1533 accounts you've named and shamed 1 guild and 1-X accounts with a blanket label of BA leadership.

      These are factual things and your responsibility (at least moral) is clearly a matter of cause and effect, even if you write it off as a "not on my platform" it should still exist assuming you're a human being with a degree of empathy.

      2. Selective TOS Enforcement

      - You have done nothing to deal with harassment and slandering going on in-game and out-of-game, which is evident first and foremost in how every alliance leader in the game including me is "obviously RMTing" - take a look at your game, your subreddit, your forums if you think I'm wrong.
      - You have done nothing to protect the innocent players from being cyber-bullied, witch-hunted and harassed, which if I remember correctly drove a player to a suicidal state a few years back.
      - Some players like Durateen are banned on every account they make, some players like Shiro, Warriz, LebronJames, QueenBR, DelNegr0, Mamono and many others are left to play freely on new or old accounts.

      This is also pretty indisputable, and while you can argue it's not your fault because people didn't report X, your responsibility as the caretaker and owner of the game should be pretty clear in the matter especially if worst comes to worst and someone commits suicide, or gets raped, or gets their tires slashed as a direct or indirect consequence of the community and culture which you create with your actions or lack of.

      I hope that's explained enough for you, also worth looking at what Frank Sinatra wrote.

      Also to clarify;

      We both know you looked at my accounts six ways from Sunday, and we both know my silver goes three ways; % goes to my guild, % goes to allies, % goes directly to member rewards. When you're done with your forensic accounting roleplay, I hope to see a statement from SBI that puts a stop to the harassment I've had to tolerate for far too long in your game.

      Sorry but he should have been banned a long time ago. This guy would literally follow people around spamming racial slurs. He would also harass other streamers and spam racial slurs on their steams to get them banned/suspended on twitch as well. Not only that, he would get BA to follow people around and harass them non-stop for hours. Do you have selective memory or just going to spin your own narrative? It is sad.

      SBI has given BA plenty of passes but eventually they have to take action.

      Fake news, he did stream snipe Jerry one time and was toxic and received a 1 month mute for it, that's it. Stop trying to deflect from Franksinatra's and Syndic's points.

      So SBI's new stance is to be belligerent now? xd

      It has nothing to do with whatever BS you're trying to push here. You can investigate me all day, waste your time. lol

      The problem is you're coming off as a vengeful ex with this whole thing. You deliberately decided to take a very low path to call them out specifically, when the community already knew that you only banned them because they quit the game. It has nothing to do with your new "sophisticated" (lol) team of, probably, volunteers.

      We have been reporting this for years, giving you pretty solid evidence. You let people that have been banned over and over again to come back with out any issue in the past.

      Glad you're coming out swinging though. maybe you won't get butt hurt by the truth, but that's wishful thinking, right?

      Edit: I realized I pretty much wrote the same thing @Syndic wrote above, but he was more elegant about it, which he shouldn't have been since @Korn basically insinuated that anyone that had a problem with them leaking this information was also RMTing and gave grounds for the witch hunt/false accusations that you wrote about.

    • Frank and Syndic are locked into boomer MMO mentalities. They think games were better 20 years ago, because that was when their hormones were in flare and everything seemed better. So they try to drag AO backwards at all costs. Luckily, so far, all they have managed to do is keep us all locked in over 4 years of stagnation, shitty BZ warfare where the minimum number of people have fun, and the minimum number of people get "rich".

      The very first meaningful action SBI takes against any high tier cheaters, and suddenly the people who are TOTALLY AGAINST RMT, think it's time to slow down on this witch hunt, and be more respectful to these poor criminal souls.

      The Dandy Duo, have a lot of things to be worried about. Their precious fiefdoms are under attack by SBI's insistence that, contrary to their ideas, the BZ territory control systems and the season system aren't actually a lot of fun for anyone other than them. So this fight for their ex-RMT buddies is just a first battle in their war across AO social media to protect their power and influence.

      regarding point number 1, sorry to let you know but pretty sure they don't have any legal repercussions from that for a simple reason, too many games have their ban show publicly in-game and have databases whether it is community-built or sniffed to know who was banned and why. why Albion should be any different to spare the online feelings of people who wrong potentially thousands to make a bit more $ at the end of the month on the back of causing content to be less fun for thousands?

      Regarding number 2, true that some people like Frank, Gluttony, and you have had their names linked to rmt rumors forever however, due to what came to light recently with BA, somewhere behind all of this there must be a bottom of truth in some way shape or form. Hence why SBI is investigating and they can investigate as much as they want as long as you are on the game too, they can micro-check every single action of any given player at any time in the bounds of any of their platforms (discord official servers, forum, in-game for both live and test-server).

      If you are uncomfortable with that, might want to think about switching games almost but remember that this is under a service they offer and can do what they want to on it.

      So imo, sadly due to your position as being part of the leadership of the mega-coalition that makes bz unfun with cluster queue fights the most, expect to always be a "target" since you are a "public/prominent figure" in Albion.

      It's the same way for some of the gvg players that part of the community suspect to be the new characters of previously banned rmt'ers that were doing gvg.
      but once you are in the top 3 teams, you kinda are like a public figure imo, doesn't make the slander "ok" but inevitable due to jealousy and so on.

      so best 2 things you can do if you want out of the spotlights are,
      1. stop being in it
      2. switch games (which I don't recommend since nothing on the market so far is quite like Albion for most content imo).

      and you talk about name shaming while dropping multiple names...

      And if you feel you are getting harassed too much, nothing prevents you from reporting the people to support, pretty sure you already know the way to do so.


      I personally think anytime a player is banned, it should show only ig, in the game chat as multiple games do. no need to have it on forums and at that point, the monthly forum post of x amount of rmt accounts banned is just nice for peeps who miss the ig ban waves.
      So people can actually see who with the reason. no witch hunt there since no personal information is given from a character's name. (and if it is available just from the chracters name, this is so wrong on so many levels since this can cause doxing from bad account security directly)

      Stop with your bullshit @Korn . The SBI playbook is well known from any veteran now.
      It's been 5 years now than we know all your smoking tricks when it come to the damage control than is usually pulled out following failure from your staff.

      It is obvious than your new CM did an huge mistake than wasn't endorsed by the company
      Why Nesnes has been quiet from the very day 1 (like she is in time out)
      Why you stepped up as the current PR (as in any historic similar event) if it wasn't the case?
      Why SBI still quiet about the fact than "Nesnes" got evicted 2 TIMES by Blue Army when she was a simple player and playing in Fricks?
      (without mentionning than Fricks is also where Mamono (Elevate) is coming from)
      Why for the single time in 5 years than SBI doing "name shaming" the CM in charge has actual grudge against the targetted people in that "name shaming"
      TOO MUCH COINCINDENCES !!!!!

      Then come the "Turtle defensive mode" when you stop replying (and usually working on your next move than gonna have to stick with the narrative of your damage control)
      We already saw that numerous time and it is usually when the SBI censorship is about to hit
      Remember when the game was unplayable if more than 50 people was fighting on the same zone and anyone than was dropping video of those horrible lagfest was instant banned by Elsa on albion official discord or Reddit?
      Remember when the "goldseller criminals DDOS" happened?

      (When you have to assume to be the first video game launching without any DDOS MITIGATION for avoiding extra cost, while all of that coincidently happened on the same time you realised than you had to use CasandraDB on Linux server instead on Windows server?)

      TECH FAILS #2 (A POST-LAUNCH DISASTER)
      After 12-18 hours under full load, Cassandra suddenly became unresponsive for 5-8 minutes, killing the game Unable to fix this for > 2 weeks 
      solution: get a consultant move from Windows to Linux (like everyone else)
      problem was disc IO bottleneck between Cassandra and Windows RAID controller driver
      Try to use technology the same way everyone else is using it!
      https://davidsalz.de/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Albion-Online-devcom-Cologne-2018.pdf


      We still don't have any evidence beside suspiscious screenshots of Berciliak than that story was the truth, and AGAIN anyone than was arguing about unconsistence in any of your fancy stories was instantly silenced/banned from reddit/discord for avoiding them to spread their analysis than wasn't supporting the narrative you was pushing...

      So what's coming next ?
      Is Elsa coming back as temporary CM for censoring anyone spreading "harmfull and dangerous thinking against SBI"?

      Is it time for us to do mandatory CTA's asking to our people for flooding channels than you can't moderate with THE TRUTH
      as STEAM REVIEWS as others Reddit pages like r/MMORPG revealing all the evidences of your wrongdoing ?

      Can't it just be more easier if SBI was acting correctly, assuming what they did wrong in total transparency and showing respect to their players and community?
      Mistakes are human and are always better accepted if admitted and in my opinion this is the main cause for why so many veterans players left the game before going F2P when the game was in an horrible shape and almost dead...

      Will you learn from your mistakes finally?


      Much love i have to assume than i'm waiting that for a VERY LONG TIME, and one thing is sure you choose the perfect timing for shooting in your feet !

      Will you learn from your mistakes finally?


      Much love i have to assume than i'm waiting that for a VERY LONG TIME, and one thing is sure you choose the perfect timing for shooting in your feet !


      @Korn @Elsa @Nesnes @NesnesGM @Eltharyon
      Makes no sense, Elevate is disbanded, Mamono wasn't even in the guild anymore so this point doesn't stand.
      Fricks has been allies to Blue army after getting evicted by them, they didn't seem to have any hard feeling, harrassing SBI about your leadership finally banned after years of RMT won't change anything.

      Stop with your bullshit @Korn . The SBI playbook is well known from any veteran now.It's been 5 years now than we know all your smoking tricks when it come to the damage control than is usually pulled out following failure from your staff.
      It is obvious than your new CM did an huge mistake than wasn't endorsed by the company
      Why Nesnes has been quiet from the very day 1 (like she is in time out)
      Why you stepped up as the current PR (as in any historic similar event) if it wasn't the case?
      Why SBI still quiet about the fact than "Nesnes" got evicted 2 TIMES by Blue Army when she was a simple player and playing in Fricks?
      (without mentionning than Fricks is also where Mamono (Elevate) is coming from)
      Why for the single time in 5 years than SBI doing "name shaming" the CM in charge has actual grudge against the targetted people in that "name shaming"
      TOO MUCH COINCINDENCES !!!!!

      Then come the "Turtle defensive mode" when you stop replying (and usually working on your next move than gonna have to stick with the narrative of your damage control)
      We already saw that numerous time and it is usually when the SBI censorship is about to hit
      Remember when the game was unplayable if more than 50 people was fighting on the same zone and anyone than was dropping video of those horrible lagfest was instant banned by Elsa on albion official discord or Reddit?
      Remember when the "goldseller criminals DDOS" happened?

      (When you have to assume to be the first video game launching without any DDOS MITIGATION for avoiding extra cost, while all of that coincidently happened on the same time you realised than you had to use CasandraDB on Linux server instead on Windows server?)

      TECH FAILS #2 (A POST-LAUNCH DISASTER)
      • After 12-18 hours under full load, Cassandra suddenly became unresponsive for 5-8 minutes, killing the game• Unable to fix this for > 2 weeks 
      • solution: get a consultant – move from Windows to Linux (like everyone else)
      • problem was disc IO bottleneck between Cassandra and Windows RAID controller driver
      • Try to use technology the same way everyone else is using it!

      We still don't have any evidence beside suspiscious screenshots of Berciliak than that story was the truth, and AGAIN anyone than was arguing about unconsistence in any of your fancy stories was instantly silenced/banned from reddit/discord for avoiding them to spread their analysis than wasn't supporting the narrative you was pushing...

      So what's coming next ?
      Is Elsa coming back as temporary CM for censoring anyone spreading "harmfull and dangerous thinking against SBI"?

      Is it time for us to do mandatory CTA's asking to our people for flooding channels than you can't moderate with THE TRUTH
      as STEAM REVIEWS as others Reddit pages like r/MMORPG revealing all the evidences of your wrongdoing ?

      Can't it just be more easier if SBI was acting correctly, assuming what they did wrong in total transparency and showing respect to their players and community?
      Mistakes are human and are always better accepted if admitted and in my opinion this is the main cause for why so many veterans players left the game before going F2P when the game was in an horrible shape and almost dead...

      Will you learn from your mistakes finally?

      The whole point is that CM is an ex player than was evicted by the people she is name shaming
      How will you react if one BA player get promoted as new CM and target Elevate for example?
      Will you not see "unproffesional behavior connected to in-game grudges"? RIGHT
