Remember the rules.
Calling players out, insults & harassments are against Crime City rules.
It is probably the reason why Funzio closed the thread that some of you have in your signature.
Bullying & harassment are not tolerated in the US.
Harassment is a reportable offense to Funzio.
I think the thread got locked when I pasted in Jules' Ezekiel monologue from Pulp Fiction. With hindsight maybe it had a few too many naughty words in it
There is no agenda to bully or harass. And the messages being left are not abusive. In fact all the abusive and threatening language I have seen so far has been from 499ers
So lets not turn this into some politically correct nanny state nonsense.
It's a game of fighting and robbing, and we have simply come up with a loose coalition to fight and rob in a manner that will actually improve one particular aspect of the game that has become slanted, one-sided and unfair.
It is still harassment & the posts I have seen are intimidating. Not cool.
Posting stuff like what I have seen on the walls in the game is wrong, is harassment, and IS against the rules.
What you are doing is not a good thing. It is mean & hateful & is not tolerated. Period.
you should just quit Kerosene
Presumably you are a 499 and this is the first round of your new tactic to get our actions banned or suppressed? We'll be talking about your Civil Rights next!!
It is a game called Crime City, the basic premise of which is aggression, fighting, robbing and criminality.
If you don't want to play with the rough boys, be harassed, or indeed have your right to a peaceful and trouble-free existence in any way impinged, surely your choice of game is somewhat questionable?
Forgetting the hysteria and the feigned oppression for a moment, let's get back to the why....
I thought JoeBrown1 summed things up very well in another thread...
The 499 strategy is not there by intentional development or design, it is a loophole that is exploited by some players. Because this 499 strategy was never invisaged by the devs, there is no in-game counter strategy. So we are addressing this by creating our own counter strategy, in order to close the loophole and reduce the negative impact it has on the game.

another whiner? go just go Kerosene.. no one will hold you back. but please make it quiet when you decide to.
I am not going.
I play fair.
I am a nice person.
I enjoy the game very much.
Attacking and robbing are part of Crime City.
But, the name calling and posting harassing messages violates Crime City rules.
I will be reporting violators.
As a 499 player I just want to say a big public thanks to the rat catchers for saving me a cool million last night. Blind attacking me meant I disappeared off the rivals list for the two hours it took for me to collect my buildings late. :-)
More seriously, fair play to the rat chatchers - I think it livens things up, and a message saying you have been attacked for being a 499 rat is hardly abusive! All I can say is bring it on, but beware anyone attacking me for being 499 who is in my range better collect their buildings on time for the next 16 hours
