What made Bontarians elect you to be governor 4 times in a row...? Or was it just all your alts and your guildies alts that rigged the vote?
Nobody is actually voting. Politics in this game are meaningless. If his guildies get rallied to vote for him that will be enough since nobody else bothers to go and vote.
@Thread topic: This is a well known and unsolvable flaw in game mechanics. Griefing is possible, punishment is not.
Ankama is not willing to solve this since they feel any option of punishment will be disturbing their carebear style of game development while at the same time not recognizing that griefers do that much more.* If an Outlaw gets killed they should lose all their gear or 10 levels or whatever. That willl shut petty griefers up quickly.
However, by acting all macho manly and trying to "hunt down the perps" you are just making it more fun for the griefers. Just ignore them for gods sake. They will get bored eventually. Who cares about nations anyway? Guilds have HW now to plant stuff.
Outlaws aren't anything else than roleplayers. They have no actual impact on the game unless you let them and get involved. Same goes for the "politicians".
*Btw nobody in this game has been even trying to grief properly. If I were to go that way nobody would ever plant or harvest anything in game again....there is so much more efficient ways here to screw people over and sooner or later some asshole will come along and do this kind of stuff. Maybe then Ankama sees how imbalanced their mechanics are.
