Interestingly enough, even nations that did conduct attacks were warned as well so we have sent Alex our appeals, but he is ignoring each and every one of them.

 

I was declared on by a total of 4 nations. Out of those 4 nations the only nation that was forcibly peaced was the nation that did not do any attacks against me.

Define attacks. I’m literally sitting on someone who declared on arrgh with the explicit reason of trying to be beiged, they did a token utter failure and then sat back and waited to be beiged. Is that ok to you?

Never change Alex.

Since you've ignored my entreaties on discord for 3 days now despite multiple pings.

Please see the four below wars that you personally marked as slotfilling despite people making attacks. 

"I'm the one that issued all of these warnings" - Thank you for clarifying. Finally.

Edit: Congrats you finally got me to create an account on the forum- since I've been ignored on other mediums. 

I wasn't online over the weekend, and going through a very large backlog of DMs and tickets on Discord now. When I get on P&W, I typically do the following:

In-game messages -> Player Reports in-game -> Forum -> Discord Tickets & DMs

So I am not ignoring you, there is just a very large volume of things for me to attend to, and I have not even seen your pings yet.

No - and the rules explicitly state this.

4. War Slot Filling

Moderation Points Guideline: 25-75
Expiration: 2 Years

Declaring war on a nation without the intention of fighting them is punishable by a nation strike and additional punishment for multiple violations. You are not allowed to declare war on nations to prevent them from being attacked by other nations. This same rule applies with spies and espionage operations. Knowingly participating in having your war or spy slots filled is also considered a violation of this rule.

Declaring war on your allies is generally considered war slot filling and against the rules. In cases where relationships between nations or alliances are not clear, moderators will use their best determination to decide if nations are allied and therefore war slot filling or not. One example of this type of rule-breaking behavior would be leaving your alliance to declare on someone in your alliance or a nation in an alliance allied to your alliance, and then rejoining your alliance.

Moderation discretion must be applied when interpreting and enforcing this rule. One example of behavior violating the rules would be declaring war on a nation and sending attacks with minimal units, or using 'Fortify', to appear to be fighting a war, when in reality the attacker has no intention to engage in a real war and is attacking with the purpose of preventing other players from being able to attack the target or to otherwise benefit the target nation.

War Slot Filling violations will generally result in the war in question being manually peaced out by a moderator.

To clarify, what if I have 5 nukes so I declare 5 wars. Then before I get enough MAPs to launch them, 3 get spied away. Am I at fault for the two wars that I didn't launch those nukes? I didn't intentionally slotfill but circumstances forced it to be that way. From the community reaction, its clear that this has never been called out during a global before and until now, was considered a valid war by everyone in the game.

Another strategy that's common is declaring several wars and one-shipping those wars for nation that don't have navy and suddenly they buy navy. The original intent there was to beige but the damage is relatively minimal. Now you can't one-ship an opponent who has 150 ships so you give up on it. But is that your fault and should those people also receive warnings for slot filling? Of course not.

I generally agree with you on this. This is where moderation discretion gets applied, and it may not always be possible to have the full context in front of me making these decisions.

do.... the mods/other admin not help with that giant backlog at all? ........
i understand wanting to handle things your way but like... shirley some of it can be filtered with a bias toward heavy caution? like tiered moderation????

so lets say... someone knowingly filled spy slots multiple times.... lets say over the course of 2 weeks? and they were reported multiple times over the course of these 2 weeks.... how many warnings would they have on their nation... would they still be allowed to play?

the rules state that its an offense to assist the defending nation... if one is declaring for beige... it would be assisting the aggressor not the defender (at least with how wars actually go and there is no real even amount of slots in a set range)

I don't believe for a second that a single Ro$e member with 0 military would declare attrition wars on multiple max military 700 infra HoF (who they're not even at war with) members with the honest intention of doing damage. Even the ones who did attacks only did so specifically to AVOID slot filling moderation. And yes, I'm arguing against my own benefit here, since having our slots filled massively helps us.

If we're not at war, why were you attacking as part of the enemies blitz and continue to do so?

 

Seems pretty clear to me you've been in it from the beginning, the fact you choose to maraud around and harass others while doing so or that because you declared less wars than fingers on a hand on HW people at one point isn't really a defense to that.

For profit. That's what raiding is. We had information that a global war was imminent and chose to use it to our benefit, to take advantage and raid. If you know what a HoF war looks like, you know that this isn't it. For the record, as an alliance we made a total of 9b war profit (loot minus all expenses) in just the first 3 days of the war.

Funniest part is that it takes moderation to prevent/address slot filling, and not the notion of it being scummy, frowned upon, and mocked by a majority of the community.

Not sure if I agree with that one, so let's clarify what's happening here: Ro$e did NOT intend to slot fill, they did not specifically want to benefit the people they declared on by filling those people's defensive slots. The problem is that what some of them are doing is, strictly speaking, against the rules that have been well established for a few years now.

Just out of interest, has anyone actually gotten banned for this?

Currently no regarding this round of mod points being put out. 

Why our you reading this.

It's almost like Celestial might actually know this and are declaring attrition wars just to be annoying and spiteful. Kinda like how they're probably annoyed you "sided" with HW in the opening rounds.🤷‍♂️

How is it annoying to have your slots filled? The annoyance here is that they're railing against the game admin for enforcing his rules.
