NA PVE N10 "Ghost Ghost ???" griefing almost a week now and Devs are doing nothing about it.

Recommended Posts

The Ghost Ghost ??? Chinese company has been weight sinking multiple ships in different companies that live on the South East island of the grid with them for more than a week, but the evidence we've screen shot and submitted has only been from last Thursday. They have sunk a bunch of the ships of those of us that live on the island with them, along with any ship from people/companies that are just traveling through the grid and anchored at the island to log off for the day. Saturday is when they hit most of our ships and multiple report tickets were submitted about them, ~10 to 15 tickets were made, providing this https://imgur.com/a/wWGISv1 and more as evidence. The last pic in that link is the response we got from one of the devs yesterday.

I log on this morning and see that they sunk yet another random company's ship that had anchored near their base last night that isn't even from the island nor grid and see that as of yet, none of the devs have come in and gotten rid of this group of players.

It is unacceptable and utterly ridiculous that a multitude of your players have submitted proof of what they are doing along with them admitting that they're doing it, just for you devs to do nothing about them. I get it, y'all are trying to figure out a way to stop the exploit from happening so people don't get griefed by it anymore. That's great! Yes, do that! However, one of you should realize that what that company is doing is absolutely heinous activity, and goes against your code of conduct for the players. You need to do something now about these specific players and I'm sure other groups that have been reported to you doing the same thing, you need to remove them and their home and claimed areas from the game. Not continue to let them grief other players and keep them from enjoying a major part of your game while you figure out how to fix the exploit. Let me guess, even after you find a way to fix the exploit this company is still going to get to keep their home and land and players no matter how many players they griefed before you figured out a fix? So they aren't going to receive any punishment whatsoever and just get to keep playing the game knowing they fucked over other players and got away with it?

It's absolutely ridiculous the way y'all are going about this @Jatheish @Amberenix @Baker @DebbySaurus @Dollie @Evza

Agreed they need to do something about this - simply not taking in account weight of a none company or Ally would be the best solution.  Yes this can be exploited the other way but it would be less invasive then what we have right now.

There's even videos from 2+ weeks ago of people doing it on youtube and bragging about it...

This happened to our tribe as well, it was also Ghost Ghost ??? And they sank our entire fleet while we took screenshots because there is no counter play to this. We didn't best we could, blocking them from grappling their weighted player, trying to block them in with bodies etc. They have been destroying ship after ship after ship trying to finish their galleon. Three nights ago it was The Watfle House Ships, then The Feces Trading Company ships, then Ships n Giggles and Horizon ships. They blatantly dicsuss and admit to doing it in general chat and threaten to do it to anyone who speaks up against the doing it. The island population is dying, which according to chat is their goal. It's killing N10s player base and this kind of griefing on a wider scale is chasing away a lot of players. I believe at last count there were 10+ tickets sent in with screen shots, they now have ccc info and we have Steam IDs and still three days later, nothing. These are players who are openly griefing and sinking hours and hours of work and players are posting to forums, sending in tickets, with more screenshots then I can keep track of, and no response. Check their base inventories, I wonder how many various tribes items you'd find there.....we appreciate that you're looking for a fix, but please do something about this specific tribes behavior. They have literally sunk 30+ ships, easily. They have sunk 2 or 3 waves of ship building from few tribes. We've moved all ships to separate locations and are hoping that this will actually be dealt with. Fixing the issue isn't going to be enough, these players used fire arrows to kill people when that worked, they used repair hammers when that was working, they kill tames in progress constantly. If my word isn't enough, go to N10 and ask about Ghost Ghost in global, that should provide....insight....

Chinese company 'Predator' just bombed everything on Southern island in O4 by aggroing SotD.  How do you report players?  If that will even do anything... 

Even Bethesda can handle banning toxic players.  Get your shit together WC/GS.

I don't normally like posting complaints on public forums, but this situation is getting out of hand. We've had people come by N10 just on treasure hunts and get their boats sunk. People who have absolutely no ties to this server and they get sunk just because their ships happen to be on the shores. As a PvE server we have no counter play other than to try and build big walls or possibly garages for ships. Even a small company like [DEAD], which is primarily a solo player had two of his brigs sunk. He proceeded to quit and uninstall the game. There are many players here who love the game, but this is really driving many of them away.

The easiest but still shit way to do so is try to look at him and screen shot his name, then look up his steam name and just report his steam profile. I know it's a shitty way to have to do it, but not much you can do when they let chinese characters be used as player names and don't actually show the characters

You should post all of this to the Chinese media ministry. Grapeshot will never region lock because they’re super greedy and owned by a Chinese parent company (Snail). However, the ministry in China is mandated to not allow Chinese people to engage in online activity that damages the reputation of China. (amongst a list of other violations) Having the game banned in China by the Chinese govt. is much more likely than getting Grapeshot to region lock.

I think Gamespot or some other major media outlet posted an article on the racism and issue with Chinese players in Atlas.  Forward that link 😊

Every single one of our ships were sunk just last night. They were all sloops, however it was done by these same people. This needs to be addressed, plain and simple. 

The server is dwindling down to less and less people every day because of this. Nothing has been done and there is no fix. With all the other bugs going on in the game, having someone with direct control over another players boats is completely first priority. When another player says whether or not someone can have fun while play a game, that should be a huge red flag. 

**** Not to mention, every single person in this company that’s doing it has 1 game ban on their steam profile.

I was hoping the exploit fix today was it, but nope, turns out it's shooting cannons through walls.

Since my ticket they have sunk the majority of Withered Island on N10. Connect with East India Trading Company, or Feces Trading Company or Ships and Giggles, or Horizon, or any of the Companies here and you'll get the same story. Here are a few screenshots of a night or two ago when we caught them sinking Feces Trading Company.

Here are more from the night they sank us, as they sank it and then as they salvaged it. The use Lisa Cat as their weighted player, it looks like an alt account when we went after the steam ID's. I have more screen shots from Ships n Giggles who was also watching this happen and got there before I did. This was our brig, they sunk every other ship we had in that harbor after the brig. They talked about what they were doing and why in chat prior this this. They use threats of sinking to try and control what other players do. The last two are their water barrel stash, this is how they sink the ships. Leave 100+ of these out, load them up, drop the box for the weighted player, and rinse repeat. If it's dropped for their loaded player, the weight limit doesn't register. If they are over weight and take off a piece of armor and put it back on, their player weight resets to cap as well.

Happened to us last night. NA PVE Server, region M8. Agroed a ghost ship onto my galleon and stripped it of its resources. Company name "Dendroapis Polylepis." Individuals involved Alice Wei, Dub Tang, Pathfinder G. Ban these scumbags. Oh and Altas deleted my post on Steam to try and cover this whole thing up. I will repost it 24 hours a day - delete it all you want.

Have to remember PvE isn't the only mode and the chances are what they do for us will affect them (shouldn't be a thing i know) and chances are they dont want to make things worse than they are

That's fine, I'ma ll for them taking the time to figure out good fixes that won't ruin or make things worse. However, them not having anyone take the few minutes to look at proof, go to the coordinates and remove the people ruining the game for others is absolutely ridiculous

I know they can, it's the same system as Ark, takes less than 10 minutes to teleport to and find a player or group of players and with proof provided ban them from the game

I will setup a computer to record on a boat 24/7 if I have to. If they want any more proof, I’ll get it.
