pick a fight (in Contests)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 20 2006 3:08 AM EST

Welcome to the troll pit, a series of terrible contests I'll be doing. The purpose is to expose the methods trolls use to drag out lame threads...trolling is bad ummm kay.

Prize : 50k

Scene: a typical gaming forums off-topic section, an asbestos keyboard clattering away with malignant glee.

Give me your best title and thread starter for a flame war du jour.
As always keep it PG and don't get personal, unless it's about me**.
The less political the better, we all know how to start one of those threads. Be creative, take a stand!


Geritol Complete is All the Vets should get!

I can't StAnD the nCB it's laim, please stop these old people from attacking my NUB char.


- end simulation -

Sorry Edy!

* - Bast will surely tell me

** - Bonus points for insulting the contest host

"Possible Multi: Novice/Bast."

Yeah I know.... there's already a special place reserved for me in hell. :P

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 20 2006 3:17 AM EST

I want a thread starting paragraph (however short) but yeah, your going in a rusty one wheeled wagon at this point PK (to hell that is)

PirateKing February 20 2006 3:24 AM EST

Ooop. Sorry Novice. Here's the revised entry:

"Possible Multi: Novice/Bast/Ranger"

Burn em! This insidious trio has covered their tracks carefully but I know better. Multi multi multi multi. Jon and his cron... I mean, admins must be in cahoots with them as well, since they refuse to do anything about the situation.

How about "For Sale - 1,000,000,000,000,000 CB1$ for USD -
Please reply to Jonathan "


Shark February 20 2006 3:54 AM EST

oh nice Freed... but you left out when all the CB is sold the cash will be used to start CB3 :)

This will go in changelog.

Top Characters will be auto-reset.

The post:
After very careful consideration, the top 50 characters will be reset. All items and cash will be sent to Central Bank. This is due to a bug that has allowed the top players to benefit from an unfair bonus to their rewards (for an extensive period of time). NUB users were not affected by the bug. Novice will be reset and banned, as it seems he has been exploiting this bug on purpose, rather than accidentally.

The outcome:
Man, if this really happened, CB would implode upon itself. LOL.

We need to rebel against CB controllers! 1% of the people on here control 90% of the game. This is fascism my friends. Power should be distributed evenly! Rebel I say. Stick it to the man! Don't be pushed around anymore! Act! I do not pity those who complain and do nothing about their situation. Change may be needed!

Classic example of trolling! ^.~

Meh, what a lame idea for a contest. What, you need ideas
to troll other forums because you can't think of any yourself?
Besides you'll probably just give the money to someone you like
and not to anyone with anyone who deserves it.

/me pulls out a crack rock..."Put this in your pipe and smoke it."

Bah, forgot a title and cleaned up a little.

Moron seeks attention, yet AGAIN! Can't we try for a contest, that's a bit more .. I dunno, intellgent? I dunno about you, but I was out of the 5th grade about say ... 15 years ago? I mean, comeon .... if you want attention, stick your nose where all the others that get attention do. I won't say what that is to avoid "breaking your precious rules", but the color for the day, is brown.

Halcyon February 20 2006 6:51 AM EST

It sucks, I know .. it's LATE!

at the hands of Novice, who has been running a sophisticated multi-NUB-CB2$4USD scam which has nearly destroyed the entire economy of the game. I won't name any more names, but it's going to be really obvious when you see how many of the familiar 'big-USD spenders' have been banned. To combat further such abuses, a new policy has been instated which allows the admins to track down and torture multis. Novice will obviously be the first example. Pictures soon to come. Have a nice day! >.<

"Give me your best title and thread starter for a flame war dou jour..."

Here's a classic example of some loser gratuitously using French in an attempt to sound clever, but can't even spend the time to look up the proper spelling of du jour, one of the most commonly used phrases. Naturally, the Novice's complete ignorance of la belle langue makes him appear even more like an imbécile.

We need to promote the use of French in our forums, to reduce the instances of such stupidité, and to prevent the loss of la langue française sur l'Internet. I propose that all forums titles and threads must written in both French and English, with French appearing first, naturally in a larger font.

Anyone who refuses is racist, a hater of the French, and should immediately be banned form the game!

(Note: no offense to Novice or others intended; this is simply for the sake of the contest.)

CB1 Beginning March 1st, 2006

- Due to the conflict between Top-ranked players and NUB/NCB'rs, I have decided to shut down sign-ups for CB2 and re-open CB1. I will leave cb2 running for as long as there are a few people playing it. Sorry for the trouble this may have caused.

Multi: Bartjan, The Saint, G Beee, Shade, Vestax, Special J / Novice

Bartjan, The Saint, G Beee, Shade, Vestax, and Special J have turned out to be a multi of Novice, who was disciplined once for multi-ing already. Merged the 6 accounts into the Novice account.

I have seen no further evidence for any secondary multis. I will keep an eye on the account if it spawns multis again.

Are you people really this stupid? I mean, after the millions of multi posts, did nobody think that an admin would be a multi? For all of the multi hunters: why didn't you check the admins? Come on, admins are pretty much legal multis since they can log on as anyone!

Update: Novice created 3 MORE accounts after this posting. Banned Bast, Sutekh, and PirateKing. Do it again, and you're IP banned; I'm running out of patience!


AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 20 2006 11:06 AM EST

wow you guys are great...keep em comin...the multi ones are hilarious, and some of the others have even had me laughing out loud...

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] February 20 2006 11:54 AM EST

Ooh boy. You pushed it.

I am CrackMonkey. CB is going down.
I am having a hacker friend fry CB when he returns to town.
Unless no one wants to play CB I suggest to un-ban me immediately.
I am not joking either. :)

well ok, not original...but funny ^.^

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] February 20 2006 12:52 PM EST

Slayer has no originality, using my idea and making it rhyme, pfft.
/me goes and sulks in a corner until someone gives him a cookie

deifeln February 20 2006 12:55 PM EST

Title: Interesting----> Kitty sells out and Haterz buys in.

Thread starter: no text

/me wins...right?

SNK3R February 20 2006 1:02 PM EST

Actually, Slayer's submission is pretty darn close to the real thing from what CrAcKmOnKeY said.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] February 20 2006 1:05 PM EST

At least with mine I was "creative" and the leet speak would definately bring a fair few flames :)
I was there for CM's outburst and yes plenty of posts, I did not mean offense to Slayer's attempt, it was pretty good :)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 21 2006 1:59 AM EST

Maelstrom wins...sorry folks but it's got everything!

PirateKing February 21 2006 2:35 AM EST

Fix! :P

Stephen February 21 2006 3:27 AM EST

Logan was right!

Maelstrom February 21 2006 8:35 AM EST

Thanks novice :)

Je voudrais remercier le Parti Québécois pour l'inspiration ;)

AdminG Beee February 21 2006 8:38 AM EST

Fined Maelstrom 25k for using "foreign" in forums.

QBJohnnywas February 21 2006 8:43 AM EST

Bit harsh for a Scot to be fining people for speaking foreign.....;)

Maelstrom February 21 2006 8:44 AM EST

heh :p
