Seems to be yet another Russian player. The only people that I ever come across scamming in the trades are Russians unfortunately. The last one being 666 who stole a pair of Barbarous pants and crafting mats, and now this guy
He took an Ulzin hat blueprint that he was supposed to pay 80 Aether crystals for, then acted dumb after the trade, and refused to give it back then logged off. I had a funny instinct with this guy to ask him to drop the crystals first, which I don’t usually do as the majority of people (99.9%) in the trades are okay in this game so I went ahead and gave it to him first. Anyway, just a heads up for you guys to be wary of this Russian dude. Personally I’m not ever trading with russian players again from now on. Only ever scammed twice in this game and both times with Russians… meh. All the best people.
I know stormcaller, it’s so easy to cheat in this game as it is, to dupe items, materalize them out of thin air even. So I don’t know why someone has to resort to scamming someone and tarnishing their name within the game. I don’t like to cheat though and have always played this game legitimately so it pisses me off when someone does this in game. It’s not even so much about losing an item but really just the principle of it all. Like I mentioned before, 99.9% of the players in this game are okay so I generally have little reason to not trust someone in this game. As soulscrouge said, it’s a gentleman’s agreement when trading, so I like to give people the benefit of the doubt and on the whole this community is more trustworthy then say in a mmorpg. I have 16 hundred hours logged in this game and out of all the hundreds of trades I have done, this has only happened twice now.
This thread is just to let people be aware of this guy should they come across him in trade that’s all. I even told him I would post about him in the forum should he not pay me what I asked or return the item, but he didn’t seem to care in the slightest and carried on playing the dumb innocent fool that didn’t understand English… So here we have it. ADcomando, what a c&*t
Might not be a bad idea to back up your account data before proceeding with a trade. If you get scammed, just restore the backup. I would not consider this a breach of “legit” as long as you only used it to make yourself whole if robbed.
