    • Having issues with a player called "Chief Jupiter", he has been repeatedly spam probing me
      Woke up to over 800 probe reports this morning from him, picking a moon that has no fleet on so he does not lose his probes
      At one point he was also sending probes taking around 24 minutes to arrive
      Have opened a ticket about this issue but nothing seems to have happened
      Surely this sort of behaviour can't be allowed in game and is cosidered overview spam?
      Already messaged the player in question about this but it's not changed anything so I would appreciate if this could be dealt with ASAP

    • if you already have opened a ticket, the GO/SGO of the universe should be dealing with the problem soon enough, you can always join the IRC to have a chat with them directly and explain your problem.

      Probes (attacks and missions) do not count towards the bashing rule

      So basically there isn't a set number per hour or time that they travel.. you'll have to open a ticket and hope the GO is on your side.
      Thats if a GO replies to your ticket as I've heard they're slow to reply lately

    • Got a reply , been told it's being looked into but nothing happened
      Now we have another account doing it as well, likely created by the same player called "Renegade Zibal"
      I hope something gets done about this, as it fits the category of both probes spam and overview spam and is pretty annoying since it makes it hard to find my own espionage reports

    • Considered attacking him except he has virtually nothing worth hitting, don't really want to resort to spamming back

      What I have done is used the "ignore player" option for now though, some of the messages he sent me yesterday were really odd

      Saying he was going to report me for "cheating" ,openly admitted both of the accounts were his, then he changed the name on one account to MCW UKK, assuming he was going to try and get me banned for multi accounting

      Then asking me if I played Runescape

      lol

      Yep he went to all the effort to get grav, just to launch a single deathstar at me on a MD mission taking over 2 weeks to arrive

      More spam i'm going to have to put up with, better make sure I have recyclers on standby (assuming he does not recall it of course)

    • Would be nice if something was done. I now have 8 attack missions on my screen

      He attacked me 7 times with 1 sc each taking over 4 days to arrive from what i'm pretty sure is his other account, that in itself breaks the bashing rule

      Opened 2 tickets about this, can only hope that action is actually taken this time

      No idea why 1 player would go to so much effort to annoy another player, that in itself is quite impressive really

    • well i have only bad experiences with the probe spam

      i was banned first in uni23 for trying to get a guy, who had only 2 rockets on his planet and nothing on his moon, and he did moon to own df with dummy's, and i couldnt do enough DF to see when his big fleet is recycling

      the thing was that the player didnt report me(no one knew at that time what probe spam was) but a staff has auto-noticed himself and got me banned, later 2 players did proper probe spam to me and they got away with nothing not even a warn

      later in the same year i watched a guy, and had probes arrive at him every 10 seconds(the "6 sec rule" was still in air at that time, so i try ed to avoid that), and guess what i was banned again for probe spam, i wanted to see when his fleet will arrive

      about this kind of rules i am talking about, or all get banned or none

      same happened with the 1 rip attack from g1 to g9, when i did it in response i was threatened by the staff to recall or accept the consequences, when it was done to me nothing happened, and the "attacker recalled in the last 3 seconds"

      In your case i think you have to ask the staff to check who sent those accounts resources and maybe notice the guy too
