Anyone that continues to stand behind the leaders of Gomorrah has the possibility to be issued a permanent server ban if the endgame community sees this punishment to be fitting. Epona has long-established server rules, and any attempt at overthrowing the system we have in place is a threat to the wellbeing of the players of the server.
With that being said, any player who was invited to Gomorrah without knowing the history of the leaders will be given the chance to leave the clan with no consequences.
I hope this clarifies things.
So you guys openly violate TOS because somebody you don't know may be somebody you don't like for whatever reason? Devs allow that over there?
Excellent question. Technically, specifically focusing your attention on making the game unpleasant for players solely because of the clan they are in should count under bullying/harassment. It's even worse if you are actively encouraging others to bully/harass as well.
I understand the desire to do it to a couple select individuals that have a long standing history of being jerks (it's still wrong, but it's an understandable reason). However, doing it to random players that may be new to the game and don't know these server rules makes it seem like CH has a very toxic community, and puts the entire game in a bad light.
I think it's great that Epona has server-wide rules that the players created and uphold. However, keep in mind that Celtic Heroes is an open game...forcing players to abide by rules - that they did not necessarily agree to and may not even know about - with threats and interfering with their gameplay should be treated as every other offense in the game.
The idea of forcefully stopping a problem before it even begins is a tricky one that I'm not even going to go into.
*Disclaimer, I do not play on Epona, my knowledge of the server is limited to what I see on the forums - topics like this*
This is literally what almost every dom clan that I've seen does. They all play innocent to make epona look bad so people will move to their servers instead and make them grow but they suck tbh. Our don't clan literally griefed us at 170 a few days ago just cuz we won a 6* lock battle and their excuse was "we'll make sure it doesn't happen again" like no, it shouldn't happen at all if you're gonna be dissing epona. On fingal, Everytime there's comp, a ban, grief, and vocal war breaks out. Clans race to get shared/bought toons banned, they race to grief one another to prevent them from growing, and they constantly argue and cuss one another out. If we're going to diss epona then let's bring stuff into light. What happened on Sulis when there was comp? The grief war happened. On belenus it wasn't bad tbh, eles and Ron were sorta civil, on Lir, emps griefed our comp clans non stop lol it happens over and over, don't make it seem like epona is breaking some unforgivable rule that everyone else follows cuz truth is most others don't.
