Albion Online Queensmarket travel

Every time I'm in Queensmarket, some people (who, obviously, surpass me in both skills and gear) keep trying to challange me to a duel with some 200k Albion Online Silver wager on top of it.

 

Gladly, I'm smart enough to decline these, but once, I was just about to press ok, since I was waiting for a party invite, and I was ready to press the button on the left side of the pop-up box.

 

The same people challange pretty much anyone in their sight, presumably with the same wager... And sadly, some of these accept, either because they didn't realize what was going to happen, or due to distraction.

 

Now, I don't mind people dueling for money.

 

But I DO mind people trying to scam newbies for their money.

 

There should be an "auto refuse duels with wager" option, turned on by default. Once a player gets to know the game a bit, then they can just turn it off.

 

This game needs more players. what this game doesn't need, is veterans harassing new players, ripping their money off and making them want to just stop playing.

 

dude, it's not really scamming. They're hoping you to press the wrong button. It's not like they're promising you some giant Albion Online Gold nugget in a zone where they kill and loot you.

Also, carebears have always been the people who fuel the economy, nothing wrong about being a carebear.

 

look at Eve Online. Scamming, there, has always been a matter of people misreading a contract, or accepting a 2 step trade where the has to pay in advance for something they'll never get, or putting on sale something different than the advertised product, hoping that people are dumb enough to not check info on the item. And I'm saying this because, in Eve, after getting scammed myself, I started scamming other people, on a first moment to get my money back, then because I found out how easy it was to get money that way. But still, I had to be creative with it.

 

And still, Eve, with its updates, always made scamming harder, by separating the 000's with comas to make them easier to read, or by putting the "rarity" symbol on item's icon (when they did add the faction symbol on stuff, my scam became so hard to land on people), etc etc.

 

Now, if you compare scamming to "hoping a player presses the wrong button out of DISTRACTION", chanches are that you're one of these guys that try this duel with wager on newbies as well.

 

1. That's not common sense. Common sense is to NOT steal what's not yours. I mean, If i were to see that kind of scene, I'd go to the owner and tell him to lock the bike. That's common sense, hopefully.

2. What do your parents tell you when you first go out with your bike? They tell you to lock it if you have to leave it somewhere. Because otherwise, bad people could steal it.

 

a sandbox game isn't so because people is allowed to scam people. After all, the scamming aspect of a sandbox isn't really accurate, because no virtual police will go after you and put you in jail if you manage to land your scam. Actually, the only thing that your victim can do, is... nothing.

 

Mind you, i'm not against scams (IN A GAME, OBVIOUSLY). But these should be more about creativity and being good at lieing, rather than hoping to hoping your victim is either an idiot or distracted. What I'm asking, if I can refer to the bike example, is that devs tell new player to "lock their bike".

 

There's nothing bad at spicing up a duel by putting a wager on it, but the other part should at least be prevented by pressing a button by mistake.
