Did I do the right thing?

  • Alrighty guys, listen up

    I'm in a mining game, standard ranked with 8 players. A few noobs (but bought l2?)
    I'm playing, and having a conversation with a newbie (blue) thats attacking me. The conversation goes on to another newbie (brown), who is allied with blue. I say something about brown, and blue refers to him as "me". Now, this is not much to base an accusation of, but, consider this:
    they joined the game one day apart (Dec. 31 and Jan. 1), both bought l2 with zero game experience, and only one held conversation with me. When I asked about it to blue, he said that he was talking about something else when he said "me", even though we were directly referring to brown. There was a bit of an argument, an accusation of stupidity, and I informed the other players of the potential multi boxers. I told them straight up that this isn't guaranteed, and it's just a suspicion. Anyways, they took it to the next level, breaking all alignments with them. I then get a message from brown (like 10 minutes later) about the situation. It got into the pub chat with blue threatening to resign, then instead brown resigned and blue stayed in. I told them all that I was just expressing a concern, with my evidence, and blue and brown were all butthurt (which I understand, especially since they are noobs). I told them that I have played with multi boxers before, and the entire lobby got ruined by them. They said "well, you ruined the game for us", but I explained that its better to ruin a game for two people than have it ruined for the other 6. I apologized, explained myself calmly and accurately, but also explained that I needed to do it in order to maintain the game's integrity.

    What do you guys think about what I did? Multi boxers have ruined my games before, and I was not about to let it happen again.

    tl;dr: Two noobs in my game looked like they were multi boxing, they cried "it isn't true!" and one resigned because of it, leaving the other *potential* multi boxer in game and hating me. Did I do it right?

    Not in device or creed;
    I trust the ever-living One,
    His wounds for me shall plead.
    I need no other argument,
    I need no other plea,
    It is enough that Jesus died,
    And that He died for me.

    So was I right to tell the rest of the lobby, even though these guys got mad and one resigned?

  • Yup. You can express your thoughts, it's totally up to everyone else to do something about it. But don't go telling people that if you aren't mostly sure

  • Thanks aclo
    That's my issue, I didn't want to ruin it for them (which turns out it didnt, the blue guy why stayed in somehow made allies and is now sending everything he's got at me in revenge).
    Now he's being a disrespectful asshole and I'm glad I did what I did lol

  • I mean you don't even need to be rude about it or anything. You can go to public just to express your concerns about the situation. With your proof you will certainly rally support. You don't have to state it as factual multiboxing, just make it a threat.

  • If you are going to multibox you got to do it correctly ! I actually suspect many people who were multiboxing but it turned out they weren't either that or they successfully deceived me.
