Can we all ensure we keep discussion about intentional triggering general. The gripes forum is not an area for directing abuse at a single individual. If intentional triggering is winding you up get your payback in-game, complaining about it here is a waste of time. Chiefly because we don't have any in-game mechanics to prevent intentional triggering, nor will we ever (It'd be, for one, difficult to code something able to detect it, that being the lesser of two issues - We don't have an admin to code it).

On topic, QFT:

IF they ignore my request, then, i qualify them as douchebags and i'll have an objective of killing/stealing them. :X i just work that way without really making a scandal about being triggered. it is annoying and i get mad about it, though (and those who i talk to on irc, proabbly get my angry shouting XD). but it's also a game in which certains of you play to get 'more' lands than others. so, it may be a tactic whether it's douchy or not. people have their ways to play. i criticise, mock, disrespect some of them, buttttt in the end, it's me to deal with those people too and think about what to do. (revenge is the sweetest thing to do, it seems, though! :p)
^^this, spot on.

Hence, since you would agree that the second element is bad, QED.
do it enough and annoy enough people with the tactic and azzer has been known to lock you....look at zaheen. locked just last round, he didnt do anything but trigger on people he didnt like. azzer locked his id, im sure he had other annoying traits. but none of them break the rules as far as im aware, locked and deleted before round end. i think that is a clear indication on his feelings on the subject... aka dont intentionally screw some one over with douche tactics because he has to deal with the complaints and too many complaints and he'll put in the effort needed to lock you.

the sad thing is its normally people to inept to play fairly that use these underhand tactics or people that care too much about the game/thier rank. which force your hand to use equally underhanded play.

it very much (imo) comes down to how often and the reasons why.

Doing it for lolz to mildly annoy someone you tend to get on with, perfectly legit imo. It's a bit of banter, and people should know to spy every tick when attacking solos anyway.

Doing it over and over and over again on someone you dislike, that's just being a cock which could (and should) lead to comeuppance, be it admin enforced or just good, old-fashioned bashing.

He locked Zaheen because too many people were complaining to Azzer.

Protip: if you get enough people to annoy Azzer he'll ban someone for you just so you'll leave him alone.

And so it continues...solo group intentionally triggering each other to prevent land loss.

Send as a group to kill an alliance member, alliance defends and covers the inc, solos recall, alliance sends to solos, solos attack each other to trigger.

(I wish I could breach the rules and show you all the ID's so you can see for yourselves how much this is hurting the bruised game)

If they keep doing it Hamilton, they'll be punished and AR won't turn up on their doorstep anymore.

Make them keep doing it until AR leaves them - it will show up in their news loud and clear Then when the AR is gone you can have your wicked way with them.

It's not against the rules unless it's mutual and you now the person, which is pretty hard to prove but in most cases obvious.

Best just to leave him alone, we can come to some agreement and well if you see anybody doing it to ruin one person then people should do it back to them (that goes for me too), but I only do it to people who do it to me first!

Dear ex-Xipetotec members.

There once was a solo named rigger,
though fat he wanted to get bigger,
while under attack,
his cronies sent flak,
and lo and behold look a trigger.

Please don't do it anymore. Thank you.

Well it's sort of like asking the Americans to stop ruining the world with global-fascist agendas, I would guess.
