  1. I thought I will give my two cents here as a former Staff and quite the old player (some people might know me as Chris) as well, especially since this is just a unnecessary witchhunt at this point. Before I start a few words to @Belzebel: You are promoting 18+ content on your social media, including your Discord (Guild Discord!) based around a Pokemon game with a usually rather young audience for your own personal gain. In that case, money and attention. Feel free to deny that, but we both know the truth, I have known you for years. Here is the issue though. As soon as somebody does not agree with your opinion or dislikes you for named reasons, he is a hater, jealous of you or whatnot and you genuinely believe that you are doing nothing wrong. You also genuinely believe that Staff is targetting you, but the truth is, you break rules all the time and usually get away with a warning. Maybe you should start to reflect whether or not everyone else is the problem, or maybe you and work on it? Now, a few words directly towards the team. Staff in general has huge problems and did so for many years. Sadly, they did not get resolved and just got worse. Probably 2/3 of the team swapped entirely during my time and most of the people I actually liked to work with got so fed up that they left, me included. So, what exactly was going on? I will explain my experience and view, so this is subjective. Every decision has to go through @Walrosskastanie, if he does not like the idea, it will usually get denied. It is irrelevant whether the entire team proposes that it would benefit the game or not. In my case, that was CS stuff (basically everything you interact with, aka press spacebar), but it is not limited to that specifically. Some quality check is totally fine and needed, but you usually do not get through that easily. Most of the time, many pings and dm's were necessary to even get a response. Wally, I talked to you so often about that and it was an issue when I joined and when I left. You are massively overloaded and need to distribute some work/decision making to others not named @Cames who is busy enough as well. Somebody has to be trustworthy enough at this point. Next major issue: The team itself. Basically, the people. I am very sorry if i hurt somebody in this paragraph, but I always prefered telling the truth over being liked and pretending like all of you do great work and are there for good reason. Basically, half the team has the complete wrong intentions and the personalities you find there, showing especially when some got promoted to "higher" positions is just disgusting. For example, powertripping (which is rather common inside a specific role :d) ala God complex, threatening people to make sure they get banned ingame and from Staff for literally no reason other than them being mad at you. I got enough screenshots, but I wont publish that. Next up, a good amount joining as testers (sorry its just most common there than elsewhere) just for the rewards while not even trying to find a bug, reading the dialogue or anything else other than spamming through our scripts and saying its all working. On top of that, many new people completely unqualified for the position, in fact so much in our CS team that we had to introduce a new role called "Story Writer", because half of the CS team suddenly didn't speak even decent english. We started to break our own recruitment rules, accepted a bunch of people very, very immature, incapable of speaking understandable English in roles where exactly that is a necessity. It got to the point where we went from usually quite bugless scripts with barely bug reports, to the bug reports channel having hundreds of just grammar corrections for even the simplest sentences. This doesn't even include the huge amount of the dumbest bugs just showing that the CS didn't even check his script once for himself. Also, a bunch of people tried to force their opinion on in game decisions including certain PvP decisions for their own advantage. Somebody really needed a Excadrill, so has to argue that we have to add Exca to 3 bosses, Excavations and headbutt. On top of that, we also improve the tier of the spawn and give some reasoning, which doesnt even makes sense, but that is okay. (This example did not happen, but stuff like this sadly happened all the time and I talked multiple times with @Keita about it, it improved slightly) About the Staff - Player relation: If you actually think there is a very mature discussion inside Staff, you are wrong. Players are being made fun of, are being treated differently depending on how liked they are etc. Always was like this and never changed. For example, @Waleed1301 was the most active and one of the nicest people with a little bad backstory (not even close to being as bad as mine who exploited the game once) but was stamped by half the team as immature and annoying. @Keita wanted to give him a shot, but many threatened to leave the team or started insulting each other and him if he ever dares to join the team. And guess what, he got declined even though he would have been probably the best out of all the CC's right now. Fun fact, if you searched "waleed" in the general chat, it was so bad that they wanted to clear the entire chat when he almost joined. Another thing are all the empty promises. I get it, you work on something and get excited and make an announcement that it will come to the game soon. But it often takes months and in some cases years for it to happen, lack of communication and organisation in the team and the constant leaving/recruiting DUE TO all the issues. Did anyone ever wonder where Astrella is? I can promise you, this could have been finished a year ago, easily. People get the lead on the project, do nothing for months and then leave with no progress. Over and over. Talking about organisation, the events do not have to be delayed all the time, the team just got lazy and unorganized with last minute submissions. We often didn't even see the requested art before the event started. If you really care about improving any relation, you would have to kick half of the Staff team including many in higher positions, which will never happen, might even be impossible and therefore results in good people leaving and the ones with bad intentions staying. Its rather funny that everyone I knew with a good education, that I considered as smart, left one after another. I could name some impressive people I got to known there, but I will keep that private as well, they probably know. A good chunk of Staff also needs to be disrespectful and even insulting in public chats. Guys, you represent the game? If nobody knows you are Staff, then go ahead and act all monkey, but not as representatives. This is the actual witchhunt in this channel right now, but @Qeight isn't even the biggest problem there. Felix, personal message again, I told you to relax and be atleast a bit more reputable in public, you really have to work on this since the work you are doing is awesome. Funny enough, I was the black sheep for being especially disrespectful inside Staff for above named reasons all the time as well. But at the end, we are like this because we want to improve and work on the game, other than the people we get so mad at for getting in our way with their ego and stupidity. There is actually way more, but this is more than enough insight for people who want to know the current Staff situation and for Staff to hopefully realize why the community dislikes you so much. We have had such a good team back then and it all went more and more downhill in almost no time, but I told you almost all of it already. PS: Not proofreading this one, sorry for mistakes.

  2. Greetings everyone from players to Staff of PRO’s Community, I would like to bring up a suggestion about posibble improvements which are a rerol ticket for nature on normal pokemon that are OT or to improve synchronize ability. As you may know, recently with the new change to balance tiers I don’t know if it is just my personal point of view since RNG varies to everyone, but lately it has been more difficult to search and search to hunt a pokemon and that at the end the synchronization fails, I know it is not something new, it has been long like that, and it is not something that can be changed just because. Currently, as the game is in a stage that works aiming on Gen7 and as it of knowledge of most players the ability synchronize in Gen7 is 100% accurate, I am not suggesting to give it 100%, but to give other options/solutions, like a possible nature reroll of any pokémon with the clause of it being trade locked after its use, so it can not be traded. That way there will not be an imbalance in PRO market and as the community of PRO is divided in collectors and competitors like me who can have an event/shiny pokémon that would never sell and that will be in favor to lock it to make it of better use. Speaking personally like someone who have been playing for about 5 years and more then 6000 hours it gets discouraging to spent hours and hours hunting until finding an epic pokémon that fails the synchronization. I mean, it is already hard to find and epic one and even more if it gets the right nature. So, why not improve it? Since there is already the merit of grinding and getting the pokémon. Moreover, this is not something that will reflect too much in the market because it is only giving more chances to pokemon that failed nature and neither the metagame of PvP due to many players will inclined to improve their pokemon and block them from trading, they will be only kept on the owner’s account or staff. If this is a good and beneficial idea, and if it were the case my recommendation will be that this feature will be only applied to OT pokemon and that only the player can do it once a month as maximum. It could be that this ticket can be obtained approximately from 800-1000 pve coins and for PvP with 500 PvP coins. One way or another staff is the one who decides a better price and where to include it. Me particularly will be willing to lock many of my pokemon to aim for better ones, as said before the game is divided among competitors and collectors, and searching to a better way to invest the time the idea is to improve the way of grinding and training pokemon. Another option related to this ticket is to make it more difficult to use by doing it not tradeable. For the viewers of this thread: If you like the idea leave in comments which pokemon would you like to be nature modified or leave a 1+ in the comments.In addition to something you would like to contribute in relation to this. Without anything else to add, thanks for your attention, Español Buenas a todos los presente jugadores y staff de la comunidad de PRO, quisiera traer una sugerencia sobre unas posibles mejoras las cuales son un rerol de naturaleza de pokémon normales que sean OT o mejorar en la sincronización Verán, recientemente con el nuevo rebalanceo de las tiers no sé si es personalmente ya que el RNG de cualquiera es diferente, pero últimamente se ha hecho tedioso buscar y buscar horas un pokémon y que al final de encontrarlo falle la sincronía, sé que esto ya tiene mucho tiempo y que no es algo que se pueda cambiar a si a la ligera nada más. Pero actualmente, como el juego se encuentra casi trabajando en base a generación 7 y como muchos ya sabrán en generación 7 la sincronización es 100% efectiva, no sugiero que se le de todo este aumento si no otras posibles soluciones, como un posible rerol de naturaleza de cualquier pokémon con una cláusula que te permita al momento de mejorarle la naturaleza que este pokémon se bloque, es decir, que no sea tradeable. Así no sería un desequilibrio en el mercado y como la comunidad de PRO se divide en coleccionista y competidores estoy seguro que hay muchos coleccionistas como yo, que tenga un pokémon de evento o shiny que no venderían por nada y estarían dispuestos a bloquearlo para que sea simplemente de mejor uso, hablando personalmente como alguien que ha jugado este juego por 5 años y más de 6000 horas a veces es desolador pasar horas y horas buscando hasta encontrar un pokémon épico y que te falle la sincronización, es decir, es difícil encontrar el épico y aún más uno con naturaleza correcta. Entonces ¿por qué no mejorarlo? Ya que se tuvo el mérito de sacarlo. Además, esto no sería algo que afecte mucho al mercado porque solo le daría más entrada a pokémon que fallaron en su naturaleza y tampoco al metagame del pvp debido a que muchos optarían por mejorar su pokémon y bloquearlos solo quedaría en manos de los jugadores o del staff si esta idea es buena y beneficiosa y si fuera el caso mi recomendación seria que si llegaran a incluirlo pero que fuese aplicable solo a Pokémon OT y que solo se permita hacerlo a 1 o 2 pokémon por mes. Podría ser que se logren conseguir tanto con pve a un estimado de 800-1000 pve coins como con pvp a unos 500 pvp coins. De todas formas el staff decidiría cual es el precio más conveniente y donde incluirlo. Yo particularmente estaría dispuesto a bloquear muchos de mis pokémon con el fin de que sean mejores total como dije antes el juego se divide en competidores y coleccionistas y debido a que con la medida de avanzar el tiempo la idea es mejorar las formas de buscar y entrenar Pokémon. Otra opción en cuanto a este ticket para hacerlo más difícil de usar es haciéndolo no tradeable. Para los lectores de este thread: Si les gusta la idea dejen en los comentarios algún pokémon que desearían mejorarle la naturaleza, o un 1+ en los comentarios.Ademas de algo que le gustaría aportar en relación a esto. Sin más que añadir gracias por su atención, Contributes:Kimap-Gorke-Thomaseltren

  3. Alright, Alright, Alright..[..], let's see what we've got here. Let's start by prefacing that I wasn't allowed to / was asked to not reply to thread even if messages were directed at me. The thread was solely created for admins to reply to however the thread missed its intended goal by a long shot. It simply turned into a circlejerk with the occasional thoughtful comment in between. I have structured the reply in 4 bits: Who am I? | General | Moderation General | Moderation Player related Who am I? Most of you if not 95% don't know that I started playing this game already in 2016 under the name PreHax and was #1 on the yellow playtime ladder for a long time, long after my ban as well. Yes, I was banned, not once, not twice but 4 times. My first ban was overturned because it was simply a false ban. My second ban (3day quiet-ban after I received a warning) was justified (it was for "harassing" Amca, this was simply petty Guild Drama (RuKittenMe / Tranquility). My third ban was for "Revealing staff identity" which wasn't against any rules & what I said at the time was for an artist to stop harassing me or do it on her artist account. This gave me a 10 day temporary ban. My last ban was a permanent ban for "Excess toxicity and defamation" which simply wasn't the case, some people in the thread would have been banned 5 times over if staff would enforce "rules" like staff did back then. This ban was removed by Shane and reapplied right after with added reason "Excessiv toxicity defamation harassing revaling staff identity blackmailing.". I was obviously frustrated after the initial ban so I leaked a few staff names, so that's true but if we speak about the initial ban, there is no "evidence" for anything. On the other hand there is evidence of the staff members who were responsible for the "blackmail" reason in my ban that they faked and made it up entirely ( Evidence of Arnie admitting it ). This is a very light version of what happened, there is a lot more things from me being harassed by artists while I was one of the first Discord Mods or my Contributor role being removed because apparently I "stalked" staff members besides that entirely being false. My ban was in October 2017, I didn't appeal it for about 8 months, I actually was not allowed to appeal for 3 months (this is still unheard of and was never done again). I didn't appeal for 8 months and obviously tried to move on & only jokingly made an appeal. It was rejected after 3 replies (it took 2+ weeks for those replies). Nikola (Owner/Senior Admin) took the case and unbanned me, end of May. He had plans for my talent. What talents? Me and Nikola worked on spawns together already months before my ban. The whole Summer 2017 rework and the implementation of the Repeltrick are from me. After my unban, Nikola created the "Spawn Editor role", we were 3 initial Spawn Editors however the other 2 did nothing. The role was done by me alone, as player, without any compensation who was just banned for 8 months without valid reasons. I got to work real fast as a player, not as a staff member. I did hundreds of changes ( Old Changelog ). I was asked to join staff end of July, completed my apprenticeship in record time, nobody even comes close to that time (6 1/2 days), some apprenticeship take months but the knowledge was already there. Fluffles/Cie is the only one who can come close with a little bit less than 2 weeks for a more information heavy role (CC) which also is the fastest apprenticeship time in that role. Shinohara is not that far behind either. Just goes to show what kind of staff we 3 are/were. I was made Mod Lead after 6 months and left in January 2020 due to internal issues I had with our Dev regarding moderation. I joined back after 3 months but not as Mod or Mod Lead but as GM, I joined got trained for a week & the team collapsed. We ( me and my better half, Fluffles/Cie) were pretty much left alone & struggled a lot with the above mentioned internal issues regarding moderation, this did improve a tiny bit but not a whole lot. I called it quits after 6 months again with the same reasons as before but more so the fact that the role I was in wasn't valued or supported to the needs we had at the time. I was gone for 6 months, found an IRL job, moved on with my life but missed the work as GM. I joined back with a different mindset regarding what the staff team is for me and what can be done with this game/its moderation/the staff team. @envymeister @MaitrePoulpe @Rednaks @SainteBaguette @Igordhossegor; you were interested why I joined back. It is actually very simple, I liked the GM work while its most of the time very time consuming, frustrating. It is also very rewarding (see the big RMT case). I obviously care about the game and its community otherwise I wouldn't be here. This is a small version of my position in the game as staff/player, I left out the more "unimportant" parts like me being Discord Leader. My unique perspective due to what I dealt with as a player, from constant staff harassments, to unfair bans, total power abuser and even going as far as faking evidence, gave me an edge over other staff members. I always could and still can objectively judge cases regardless of how I feel about users, no matter my feelings towards them. I know what staff abuse feels like, what cruel bullying of players can do to players that dedicate a lot of their time to improve the game. I would have never allowed and still not allow this to happen in staff under any circumstances, regardless how many heads I have to clash with staff over this type of stuff. My Spawn Editor work and my work as Mod/GM are so different. As GM I deal with the lowest of the low in our community applying that same mindset to spawns would not work at all. Mod/GM work is to keep the game clean, Spawn work is to make players happy with a healthy system. A healthy system makes spawns enjoyable while valuing economy and the game status. They got nothing to do with each other at all, that is the simple reality. Closing, most of you know nothing about me but just repeat what other people tell you. This is just a short version as well, it could be much bigger. General Suggestions: We look at all suggestions, reply to what we actually can reply to however 95% of the suggestions are things only Eaty can reply to, can decide. It doesn't matter how often you ask for this point, if its a Dev issue, NOBODY but a Dev can actually answer the question. I reply to suggestions that I can reply to really or what are part of my duties within staff or stuff that was rejected previously. WQs: The recent outcry is a perfect example how staff can't try something without receiving instant backlash by the same loud people that complain if you do literally anything. Eaty tried something, it didn't work out. He learned out of it and we go again, this is how it sometimes has to go. Moderation General Appeals: The time an appeal takes varies from staff to staff, role to role and infraction to infraction. Sometimes cases take me an hour, sometimes they take me a month. Sometimes we need Dev assistance that might take a bit, sometimes we got busy IRL and can't reply instantly. Your appeal is in 99/100 cases not the only case the staff member has to reply to. Game Masters are the obviously target of such complaints as we deal in great quantity with bans. I take as the already mention RMT case where we caught users' who sold/bought 583.63mil Pokedolar. The resulting bans were in the 70+ for ONE case. This is 70 appeals for one staff member. We are not robots, we can only reply as fast as we can within our limits. The case was resolved in a couple weeks and we removed about 1 billion worth of goods out of the game (money, shinies, Pokémon, forms & items). Appeals are always done by the staff member who issued the ban, it would be a logistical nightmare for other staffs to work on the same cases. I understand my cases, my RMT cases are very easy for me. If I have to take someone elses case, it takes me hours to understand who is who and what was traded and to whom etc. The time we don't have. That is why Former appeals take us ages to complete because of how complex they can get. Sometimes staff members take cases because they dealt with users' before, had private conversations or simply know more about the subject matter, this will appear to users as if the staff members targets them but in reality they are getting a better case handling that way. Appeals are something everyone does a bit differently, I do my appeals very light for example but I won't be the clown you can just make fun of. Some are very strict, some are more light, I am somewhere in the middle. It always depends on how the users responds. The more infractions you commit, the less likely you will be treated with open arms. One offense? Can happen but eight? As GM my appeals are filled with constant lies & they are very exhausting because users' feel the need to lie in their appeals when that's literally the worst thing they can do. @Yue @Eul @MadhavXDark This part will be interesting for you. Moderation Player related @daicamaxis a good example that you can make some mistakes but after 14000 hours there was never a major incident with the user, besides the user being constantly reported for using automation software. If you don't break rules, you won't ever get in trouble with staff members. @DRDoctorEveryone is allowed to have an opinion and voice their opinion as long as its done respectfully. @PrayforStefanIt goes without saying that we will not make anything public regarding how we catch users. @Ging13Current limitations, we requested new ban types a long time ago but other stuff takes priority. @HeroOfTheStreetOnly mass account will get all your accounts banned, other than that only beneficiary or feeder/used alternative accounts will get a ban on top of the main account. Booster cases for example the user who gets the rating and the user who loses get a ban. @GaidevoirI think Keita probably addressed it already in DMs with you however to share it publicly. Keeping/hiding evidence that a staff members leaks is a banable offense and reaching out to you is not necessary. A ban would have been justified here. @xXBlackAshXx& @Saturnalien& @666G0D999is a good example of what we deal with on a daily bases, some of these insults mentioned before by Keita were directed at me. Users' like this will scream power abuse and will be believed however the reality of things is often different. @BelzebelI'll be short with you, you are at the edge of a permanent ban due to your many infractions, you exceed our Punishment Policy already if your warnings weren't just that. I doubt you will ever change so we leave it at that & just ride it out with you till you inevitable break our rules again. The punishment is applied equally to all users even if you think it isn't. I could write a big post about you however I think you are a lost cause, beyond rehabilitation. Answering you more than this will be a waste of my time. We talked a lot already 1. | 2. | 3. , I honestly believe you can't change for the better & I doubt you ever actually tried. I still wish you only good things in life. @Algerie31 You were banned twice for using automation software, the 2nd time you were caught by the entire GM team. You went ahead on commented this on other social media platforms after you were unbanned: "last time i got banned they removed 5.2k hours play time from my 10.2k hours + 1.2m money wtf they said i was using a macro so i was obliged to say yes to be unbanned lol" I DM'd you after this: DMs between Q8 and Algerie31 , the GM team and our Devs decided to give a third chance because of how much you played and gave you a punishment we haven't given out before. We were well within our rights to just not unban you at all & you have the audacity going around telling people that? Telling others we staff abuse? Here a screenshot of the almost 40 minutes of footage of you moving every 150 seconds to farm hours (hence the removal of your hours as fitting punishment) regarding your case: Videos . I find it reckless that, disrespectful and honestly shameful that you treat staff members and the game like that even after your long playtime. Nothing further to add. @FrostyjoeRebornAlmost the same applies for you, just like @Algerie31. You harassed staff, attempted RMT and got caught using macros twice & still go around saying stuff like this: "Its actually disgusting how some staff who I will leave names off the post but we know who they are specifically notorious for being incredibly malicious and using private forums and wait time between their responses to trap players who have a lot of money and time invested into the game into making false admissions of guilt or otherwise just bullying them into a corner till they confess about something that may not directly involved them or they did and the staff feels like they have proof but don't have the full story of." @konan66Ah, really loved how you get everyone involved with your case but left out the more important parts. So let's bring that to light. 1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | Those are just the few things I DMd you about because I could have banned you at any time for this but you have the audacity to go around call me a power abuser, insult staff, insult Keita because you aren't getting unbanned? Yes you were part of the reason why we changed our Punishment Policy to adapt to cases like yours, where it was always "light offenses" and taunting but almost never anything heavy. I was very light with you, we gave you a lot of warnings. I reached out personally to you twice & you go around & call me a power abuser? Spread false things to people like @envymeister? Disappointing to say the least for the amount of effort I spent to keep you in the game but you kicked that with your feet. @envymeisterYou hold a grudge against me because I banned you in 2018, you evidentially still care since you go around spreading the appeal from back then around. So let's clear that up a little bit. I was staff for a few months at the time and I brought the case up in our channels because of previous harassments I received from your former guild due to some quiet bans I had given out. Your case in particular and the ban was greenlit by 2 admins at the time. You keep blaming me, that I made a mistake but 2 admins with much more experience at the time told me to ban. Admin 1 Admin 2, there were others that agreed as well. You keep holding that grudge from almost 3 years ago. Let it go. I don't think I ever told but was really never necessary. Remember the sanction you received from Eaty? I was heavily against it from the very start, we argued in management chat and I mentioned this when I left the first time because I didn't believe it was the right course of action. It didn't matter that it was you but in return I got constantly harassment, trashtalk from you for years. Lovely ain't it. Here: 1. | 2. I wish you all the best and simply wish you would actually see staffs for what they actually are not for what you perceive them to be. @[email protected]@Orihara I will cut this very short with all three of you, as part of the staff team from different generations you all should know better. Some of the stuff you said in this very own thread are so far from reality that makes me doubt you ever were in staff to begin with. My "attitude": I called teerav stupid for a comment he made that I genuinely think is stupid to make for someone who was a content staff and a moderation staff. Does my attitude need "fixing"? Sure a little bit, I don't deny that but you don't walk in my shoes, you don't spent hours on a case just for the user to go around spread lies, call you a power abuser and get all people riled up against you. I am thankful that I am a GM and no longer a Moderator, dealing with some of the stupidity users have is just unbearable. I am an honest person but my work and how I deal with cases was never effected by how I feel about a user or what the user thinks of me. I take @Belzebelas example here, she constantly complains that "nothing" gets done against people that harass her but I can even name cases where I banned users' because they attacked/harassed/insulted her. Walk in my shoes for a bit, let's see how long you will take all the insults, lies before you make one disrespectful comment to someone who should have known better already from the start. This post made it seem like I was insulting people left and right however this was not the case. My attitude shifted a little bit, I am a bit more rough when I say things, this might come off as insulting but often isn't meant that way. Staff got way more off it, they believe I am incapable of making forum posts like this. lol Anyway peace o/

  5. Belz, I am going to be quite honest here. You might not like this, and you know that's okay. It is not an attack, I am being honest, maybe brutal as well, but honest. After getting the full story, it changed my perspective on this quite a bit. And, being a chronic over thinker, I thought about it. Then came to this conclusion. You and Felix made similar mistakes. When Belzebel messes up, it's all "Oh my god, I will not do it again." "Please forgive me". For like what, the 1000th time? You have had more chances than cats have lives. I am actually surprised you are not banned by now. When Felix does the same thing, instead of trying to see the shoe on the other foot and giving him the chance you want people to give you, instantly you launch some kind of crusade against him. You want people to respect and give you chances? Then be the change you wish to see. I am not defending his actions, I think what has transpired should have never happened personally. And that is my hot take. But, we will never know if he will change or not unless he is given a chance. He is human just like me and you. And humans are bound to mess up. Me and him do not have the best history, some here already know, for which I take most of the blame for this and my actions. But anyways he is a very good staff, and quite frankly Belz, you of all people have no right to say who should be staff or not given how you acted as a staff member. You act like you were not warned about your behavior. You were warned, we had followed the policy, and had given you chances to reform, and escalating with each offense before you were removed from the staff team. We had to remove you. Given we had to remove you for your behavior, do you think it is valid that you can even say if someone deserves to be staff or not? You started off by being incredibly rude and inappropriate as a staff member. You also had posts in the Official Discord that were not okay, if I had more time I would totally go dig them up. No matter who or how many times we talked to you, it is like you did not understand a word we said or even read the numerous forum posts about professionalism, staff rules, and standards. A huge slap in the face to the team and player base we served. Then you kept getting into fights and arguments with your fellow staffers. You were a hard worker yes, but it does not excuse your terrible attitude and how you treated people. It got so bad between this and your behavior we had to remove you, incase you forgot. It is pure hypocrisy you want to be given chances and such, but do not want to give someone a chance. Staff after staff has tried to give you a chance to reform, and has been more than super nice to you, including myself. To see you on the forums making such claims about staff is quite disgusting given the amount of special treatment you have gotten over the years. Being nice with you does not work, and you do not seem to appreciate it with how you squander what has been given to you and lash out when people treat you like everyone else. As like what happened to you, if he were to continue to mess up, the policy would be followed. Keita spilled the tea, so to speak already in a previous post that basically he followed the policy. So it is not like they are not doing anything about it. So, uh: https://i.imgur.com/WFEqRhb.png https://i.imgur.com/cxUU8MM.png You are not supposed to solicit staff in private messages. You are breaking a rule and his privacy. He does not have to answer you, and just because people did answer you does not mean he is supposed to or required too like you think. Yeah, people give you special treatment in private messages, but he does not have too. He could of been a bit nicer about it, yeah. However, why are you trying to solicit information from a staff member in private messages? That is not good. At this point you come across as a young child who got upset, because they are not getting any special treatment. Literally digging and scraping for anything to try to prove you are right. But you are wrong with this. He doesn't have to respect you here, especially after you broke the rule about soliciting him in private messages and disrespecting his free time. You disrespected him first when you broke that rule and approaching him because you are paranoid. People probably knew you reported them because you make a big deal about it and tell everyone and their grandmother. No one is taunting you, you take everything extremely personally. He is being quite honest, which a lot of people are not with you. You actually taunted him in the screenshot above, and several times in your post. Don't even get me started on the other posts in this thread. You can taunt, but he can not? C'mon that is a double standard and pathetic. If you are going to instigate, expect what you started to come back at you. "Oh but he is staff", well yeah, but you are literally provoking him much like you claim people provoke you. You are no better than what you claim him to be at this point. You literally went around calling people apes for the longest. Just doing a simple search in the Official Discord I easily can find you insulting people's intelligence and talking about inappropriate topics. Do you think that is a good quality for a youtuber of your stature? No, it is in fact quite terrible. Calling people out for things you do all the time is incredibly hypocritical and makes it next to impossible for people to even consider taking you seriously. Belz, being totally honest, your behavior is still terrible. This is a wake up call. People are tired of the same old, same old and putting their feet down. Read between the lines, stop being so prideful. You are literally on the line and you just keep breaking rules. You always promise reformation, and then go back to the same stuff after a while. Repeating cycle. No one is going to get you banned, you are going to get yourself banned. Stop blaming others, and boss up. Take responsibility and break your cycle. "He is taunting me oh my god", maybe just don't reply? There is a an option to block people. People mess with you to get a reaction from you. And because you are so prideful, you give them exactly what they want. Belzebel going off the deep end, the sitcom, silver server tonight at 9pm. Being the bigger person requires minimal effort, and you do not have to waste your time with comebacks or revenge. And if you become a good egg, you really do not have to interact with staff or deal with them. Weird thought, eh? Now, you do have every right to be angry and express yourself, yes he did a bad thing, we get it. No need to beat a dead horse. But making false claims such as "staff are sexist", calling people power abusers with out evidence or context, witch hunting, and the like are not okay. It is incredibly hard for anyone who knows your full history to ever really take you seriously because of how you continue to act and have acted. Unless you change your rhythm, it will remain this way. Legit this thread is going in circles about him just because people are unable to wrap their heads around something other than BAD THING, and instead have a constructive dialogue. The criticism has already been taken, he seems willing to change, and Keita has taken the steps according to policy. That is the resolution. There is not much more that can or will happen, unless another incident occurs, and it is the community that is the judge of whether he has grown or not later down the line. Beating the BAD THING horse at this point is just redundant and silences other dialogue that could be had in the meanwhile. Some other users in this thread actually had some thoughtful insights and suggestions. Anyways I told myself I was not going to say anything because I just lurk, if you can call tagging Luke everyday in the Official Server that. However, hopefully this opens your eyes. tl;dr #FreeFelix give him a chance to prove you wrong, he proved me wrong. And you want change? Start by setting and example and being the change you wish to see.

  9. I don't agree for several reasons but I am willing to move a few steps in your direction and change it so you cannot encounter your last opponent for x minutes. This way you should only encounter your last opponent if the PvP Queue is empty. EDIT: Forget it, you will be able to use /avoid_last_opponent to make it impossible to encounter your last opponent after the next server update. This command is only temporarily active until you logout.

  10. For years i would consider ascension to be a big ol happy family more than a community and im happy to announce that one of our very own members @Cyanirl has went off and did the unthinkable. he went off and not only got his bachelors degree but he went and got his MASTERS. im so so proud of this man nobody will every understand and im definitely positive that everyone else in ascension is so very proud too. i had to share this here so everyone else can be proud of our very own master at his craft too. its like ive watched my own family grow when ive seen the amount of happiness and joy that ive seen when cyan comes into memberchat talking about what he learned and teaching all of us his learnings as well, it brings tears to my eyes seeing the happiness. now im sure many people know someone who has gotten their masters degrees and can share the excitement that we all are sharing for our boy cyan so if everyone can just give him a big shoutout when u see him in game or if u see him anywhere on discords or wherever it would mean the world. Our boy has officially graduated clown college and can proceed his life the way all of the gods intended we couldnt be happier. much love to you brother and hope all is well for the rest of your life.

  11. Sup, To follow Pinklax's post : I think 3500000 ivs was really to high. You needed 17500 ivs for 0,5%, so ( 17500 ivs / (186 / 2 = 93)) = 188 bidoofs to be potentially safe. Let's say you catch one bidoof each min, the result will be 3 hours and 8 min. Then you had to SUBMIT all of them 5 by 5, a horrific task . 188 / 5 = 37,6, so 38 min. It took me 4 hours to do everything mentionned above. But not everyone was hyped, nor had maybe the time to hunt a t1 for 4 hours straight ( Work, Timezone etc...) I understand that Walross had in mind that even if this is such a big number, a t1 is relatively easy to hunt and therefore no problems should have occured. But the difference here is 17500 ivs feel like an enormous mountain to climb on. And not everyone was enough motivated to do it. 100 bidoof max would have been better imo. Let's not forget that there is a certain quantity of newbies that didn't have access to Sinnoh, where bidoof spawns are. So to avoid that end in the future, I would suggest Walross to lower needed ivs, to come back on old WQs where you needed like 1/4 less ivs than the current ones. Those old WQs were a pleasant hunting party. On the other hand, current WQs can be really frustrating for unlucky people if they don't finish it at time with their occupation etc... Take as an example yesterday WQ with Archen that needed 880ish ivs, I know some people that got 2 Archen in 2 hours ! They can't allow themself to stay this amount of time for reasons listed above. Without mentionning the Bidoof one that felt like a FATALITY for some people. After explaining all of this, if the decision hadn't been rushed as Cosanostra said. None of this would have happened. Don't get me wrong, It's ok to do mistakes ! You have a hell of a game, don't waste it. I hope Walross will take this in consideration for next WQs. With all of that said, I wish you a good day. Kind Regards. Fafouney.

  14. Don't get me involved with this, i just want to clarify this The vote is from YOUR 311 players, it's from players who watch you, or know you, and listen to what you do. Understandably there will be a few cases of people that just voted because they saw the poll, but for the majority, it's your fanbase. If you suggest something, they'll do similar, if you use something, they'll as well. It's a hive mindset and you're the queen bee. You've developed such a strong reputation throughout PRO with your youtube, and grown it significantly that a lot of people will follow along with what you say. So if you tell people that Felix is a bad person, and then provide backing reasons, most of those people will believe you, and agree with you, even if they have none of their own reasons to. That's all I'm saying, please don't get me involved in this, it's the only comment I'm making

  15. Its frustrating how the purpose of this thread is not met. Instead of keep complaining, we can start think of stuff to improve the relationship. At least at this point - after 20 pages text. (I mean, in my first post I also just complained pretty much, but after 200 replies we should have seen everythign so far) Because after 20 pages of feedback, taunt, pointing out ridicolus assumptions, bringing own bans in focus in hope smt can be done, we havent really had a talk together about Staff & Player relationship. Some try. At this point I can see that many people dont know much how the staff team issue punishments, which is no wonder because in PRO we legit have ten topics of rules which are also not small. This stuff got explained here as well, that staff can not randomly ban people perma, and that every mod can see a others mod decision while there are even leads who control that. I remember that mods often link the rules when handling a appeal but still maybe it makes sense to create a 'Is my ban justified' topic which you link after every dicipline appeal with doubts. There is a explanation similar to this one answer made by Shinohara where he explained that the chance that your ban is bs is very low and other stuff - in a way where a normal user with doubs may be satified. A other big point it that people are annoyed by long ban's or better said by the long time it needs till a Discipline Appeal is solved. On one hand I can understand that, especially when the user is innocent because its ridicolus how long it takes sometimes till a case is solved. On the other hand, in most cases the user is not completely innocent and usually you dont get banned often in your player career. At least this is a point staff can work on as this seems to be a big thing I guess you can still solve a RMT case (for example) with only trade and chat banning a person, giving him a in-game notification with the request to create a appeal and only banning the person completely if the appeal is not made - Or smt similar like that, its not my task to solve that problem but I think there is something possible to work on to make players feel more comfy in a case where currently the whole acc is banned. Something else is the words used by staffers. When I was staff, we handled harsh infractions with words that are neither insulting nor taunting but kinda cold, which can drift up fast to 'unfriendly'. Many people really dont like that and I really doubt such a strategy or whatever doesnt help that a user is more honest. A kinder handling of appeals would help for the relationship - even when you know as staffer that the person is to 99% not innocent. It shouldnt be exaggerated and obviosly faked, but stuff like 'please' and 'sorry' should always be a thing (Im not saying thats never the case, but I read enough appeals where it is). A other big thing is Q8, where it is ridicolus how discriminating people can be. How can you judge if his staff work is good, decent or bad? Because you dont get an answer in less than 2 days? GG! I also dont understand how people can especially like a staff member with the reason hes doing super great mod work. How do you know?! Because they say in discord they like your pfp?! His behavior in the PRO discord was pretty bad imo. He taunted in a ugly way and even insulted. Many people see it the same way. This is not how a staff person should interact with ppl in a official discord. Anyway, some people may forget that the are themself not much better, or ignore daily ppl who are worse. Ofc we are "just players" so its different (still no reason to be an [butt]), but some people act like Q8 insulted the mothers of everyone in the discord personally. Thats hardcore, like you can take any problem and ppl but a "because of Q8" in it when he is connected to this problem just a little bit. There is for sure some critism that makes some sense, but many people dont even know what some talk is about and say hes doing bs. On other hand I read somewhere in this thread that he is aware that this was not okay. In a side note what maybe 20 people read. I could imagine that he has a other opinion, but still this is something most people here are interested in. A statement in this regards would be good I think, since this is to 50% a Q8 topic. Last thing are suggestions, I cant say it enough that it is bad when noone answers suggestions. Yes, everyone knows "you read them", but it doesnt feel like you read them because often those are much wanted suggestions and there is no feedback about what the suggestion is missing, why it is not liked etc. - We want feedback. Why should I suggest stuff when it rots away in the forum and dont ger any feedback. Honestly, why? For sure this has impact on the relationship. Suggestions in the forums, the usually said 'best place to suggest sutff' , can't be answered, but discussing at random discords and in pm's is totally possibe

  16. The PRO API was meant to be released when the thread was created. Sadly, I had to disable the API a few days right after the release due to performance and privacy concerns. The API literally crashed the servers. Also, I changed my mind. I don't want to expose user sensitive data like money without the explicit permission of the user. I wanted to create a privacy concept for the API first. This should be handled by the API himself not by the developer. The Players should have the control to decide which data are should be visible for all other players or devs. The Website and Dashboard still run a truncated version of the APIv1. I couldn't start working on the APIv2 yet cause there is always other stuff that needs my attention. It should be clear that I don't work on the API Code while the servers are crashing hourly. There are a lot of projects that need my daily attention: Staff tooling, Website, Dashboard, Server, Battle-System so on. Also, I prioritize user content like Megas, battle changes over such "side"-projects. The "client-update" was a huge update that was required to fix the massive server issues. It took over 4 months to deploy this update. Just check out the change-log: https://pokemonrevolution.net/forum/topic/3146-update-logs/?do=findComment&comment=987291 It's clearly my fault. I made stupid promises. Sometimes I'm really hyped about something and then something urgent like a bug or server crash come up and I already forget the hype stuff. Sorry for that @Electrocute4u @[email protected]

  17. I think I speak for every single person on pro when I say that beggars are by far the most annoying thing to see every single time you log onto the game to play and relax, as of right now there is nothing we can do to stop these beggars other than ignore them but that doesn't do anything because they just spam everyone else over and over. I'm suggesting just a tweak in the rules that can allow us to report these people because some of these people (sometimes its whole guilds) sit in vermillion for weeks/months getting 0 progress done on their own and just beg beg beg their life's away. If there was a rule where we can report the first time and they get a warning/mute I think it will stop alot of the begger problem that pro has. And trust me that problem is huge im sure everyone knows that already

  18. Hi, Once again, we were shown the amateurism within the staff with this world quest. Don’t come and tell me that this has no relation between staff and players. Do you think the players are happy with this world quest? 3,500,000 ivs, that doesn't make sense. Did you take the time to calculate how many bidoofs you had to catch on average to get 0.5%? Did you factor in how long it would take to catch them first? Then finally, the time it took to give them to the mysterious cultist? I sincerely think that some players are angry, including me, and don’t come and tell me that it is the players' fault. Even a simple thing like picking ivs from a word quest you’re not able to do it, so what is it when it's complicated topics? It is frustrating and annoying. Think before making decisions, it will save you from dissatisfaction. In a decision-making process, I think that the reflection comes before the announcement of the decision and finally its implementation. I hope you will at least agree on this point. Best regards,

  19. Just wanted to say thank you for making this post, and hopefully more people will read it and give it some thought. I don't usually post in these topics because I feel like they are always unproductive and have so much unnecessary drama. Hopefully that isn't the case here, this post has my support and hopefully we can see some action to make this amazing game better!

  20. Aight, gotta say what I gotta say about things like this. Keita merely replied to you when you were asking for answers. The only thing you can really accuse him of is that it could have been discussed in private and that he could have asked beforehand if it was OK to publicly divulge that drama. But you really cannot blame him for answering a direct question in a thread about transparency, come the heck on. I still agree that PreHax acted poorly and I still think he should at least publicly acknowledge that his behavior was straight from the gutter, but I have no reason to distrust Keita when he says that staff does handle it internally which implies PreHax got the instruction to shut up and concentrate on his staff duties for the time being. The one trying to make this thread about yourself is you and only you. I don't think anyone else here would answer the question what this thread is about with "That Belzebel is a bad girl." Look, I'm very sorry that people heckle you about your Patreon, but you should honestly have had the foresight to see that coming. If it pisses you off so much, you should just report the offenders and put them on ignore. Complaining about it in a thread like this is out-of-place and adds nothing of value. It only makes it look like you are salty that you got banned and want some form of absolution.

  25. I still don't agree that this command is necessary cause we have the /draw command. However, next server update, guild leaders can toggle whether guild members can meet each other in OU-Ranked. /gavoidpvp true to make it impossible for guild members to meet each other in the PvP Queue. /gavoidpvp false to make it possible for guild members to meet each other in the PvP Queue. /gavoidpvp to check the current status.

  27. Honestly, you are just looking for a way to justify the violation of our rules and that's easy to prove. In the first place, you think that context allow someone to break rules, when that's absolutely false since regardless of the context you cannot violate our rules. Context matter, and is always considered. However, context does not justify the violation of any rule as said before. If someone insult you, you are not allowed to insult them back or similar cause at that point both of you will have broke the rules and will get both punished. We have a report center exactly to handle the rule violations. So, saying that we do not consider the context only cause you got banned after violating the rules (insulting someone who had violated them as well) is false and a mere excuse to justify a rule violation. Since you mentioned the bans, we went reviewing them out of respect to understand if anything was mishandled. Honestly, after that, I can tell that's not what happened and everything was handled properly and, at this point, it's tiring to hear things that are generated just to put people in a bad light. It was also found out is that you should not even be allowed to play anymore. To be more accurate and explain, you can create a new account and play on that following rules, but if your previous accounts have reached the maximum amount of punishment already (being 8-9), then if you start the break the same rules again with the new one, then it will get permanently banned immediately as well. However, despite you have more than 13 punishments (listed below) due to a former staff error (unable to identify your previous accounts) you were able to surpass the maximum amount of punishments and avoid the permanent ban, which honestly sucks and is unfair toward the other players and in fact will need a fix specially giving the severity of the infractions. What's most annoying is the fact that you keep trying to put the staff in a bad light by saying false things such as you never broke rules (show in one of the screenshot below, part 14) and that we punish without a reason or for really small stuff and that staff are useless. However staff exists exactly for the situations in the screenshot here below: enforcing the rules to guarantee a safe and comfortable/enjoyable gameplay to people. Lets go back on your history starting from your first account: xXBlackAshXx and then Saturnalien and then 666g0d999 (being your accounts, proved by MAC/DEVICE used to play and IP connections) 1. Homophobic hate message 2. Homophobic statement (faggot)+ Vulgar language 3. Someone selling their Poke and you felt the need to PM him this - Vulgar language and Harassment 4. Extreme Homophobic Insults again after you got banned for the deplorable behaviour 5. Again Homophobic insults, this time toward one of our Discord Moderator (after you got told you cannot discuss your ban there) 6. After getting the discord mute for what you said above, you moved to DM to insult in DM (again, homophobic comments) 7. A user try to offer you a price for something you were selling. This was your reply. 8. You... acting as GM and insulting people? 9. Insult toward another player, again. 10. Telling a player to fuck off (deplorable behaviour/vulgar language) just for an offer received. 11. Homophobic insult + Deplorable behaviour/Vulgar language 12. You trolling sellers with fake offers (which is against rules) just for fun. 13. Calling a user a dick, to insult him, cause the user had broken the rules (as you yourself said). Prick meaning is based on context, as pointed by another user before, and in yours you were using it to insult a player for having broken the rules. This is probably the smallest of all of them, but yeah, you also admitted using it to call the guy an idiot and calling someone an idiot is insulting them. 14. You starting to discuss the 9/11 events and Bin Laden. This is important to be explained: in short we do not allow these sensitive topics to be discussed cause they are indeed sensitive and can lead to toxicity or even discussion way too mature for Pokemon (PG 7) so the staff member warned to stop and issued a small 60 seconds mute. However, in addition this was said as well, and you were asked to stop and move it to complaint if you felt needed as game is not the place to do that. Your answer to that was this: Giving you were not interested in stopping and moving to complaint like asked, you were just muted since enough is enough and game is not the place where complaints are handled and neither it should contain drama and similar. Also why the hell staff would steal your pokemon? That's insane and false lol. You were removed pokemon only cause it was given back the the real winner of the auction and you got back the money of course., that's it. That's enforcing rules and not stealing you a pokemon. 14. Not a punishment, but you claiming you never broke the rules before (however here above prove totally different) to put staff in a bad light and you in a good one. In addition to that, in a good amount of appeals you also tried to justify your violation of the rules in some way, exactly like did now. You were well aware of what you did, however tried to not know. You did it another time by saying: Despite above screenshots prove different. Also asking the player if they are aware of what they did, specially in situation where that is really obvious like all the situation shown above, is a way to give the user a chance to be cooperative and honest since the start and therefore having us offering another chance to them. If they don't remember, like you claimed in your case, we simply remind it LIKE IT WAS DONE FOR YOU. Doing it is fine cause it give the user a way to directly create themselves a way out the ban by being cooperative and honest since the start. If they don't remember, we'll mention it and consider honesty and cooperation after having done that. Appeals are based on many things like it can be severity of the infraction, amount of punishment received, honesty, cooperation, and behaviour in general. Not necessarily an appeal lead to an unban if you are honest and cooperative, in your case you should have been permanently banned on all your accounts that you use cause the MAX amount of punishment we allow is 8-9 and you got more than 13 (didn't mention the little infractions in my summary above like the 60, 120, 300s mutes as they are really small stuff that generally are handled with a little warn and a little mute of not even 60, 120 or 300 seconds mute). Punishment history does not reset if you change account, it's not like if you have 4 accounts you need 32 punishments to be permanently banned. It would be insane and dumb from us. Unfortunately one of our former staff committed an error and was not able to find your connection with your previous alts, and therefore your permanent ban was delayed until today. Also you don't need to lick staff ass to appeal. Literally you have to do only 2 things: be honest and cooperative. That's it. Doing that doesn't mean playing the social game and neither licking staff asses, simply means being a respectful and educated person in 2021. Honestly speaking, closing with this part that you keep repeating in game and not, you do not understand what a minor offense is. Calling someone a faggot, a disgusting faggot, a garbage piece of shit ARE NOT small offenses. There are for sure small offenses that can be blocked from evolving to bigger one. One of this can be discussing sensitive topic for example. If a staff member is online, they will stop the sensitive topic from being discussed with a small general warn chat or a small mute (after the warn) and that's easily handled. However, if the user keep discussing it and ignore the staff, it's normal it escalates to a bigger offense. Super good to point out that an offense is an offense, regardless if big or small. What changes between them is the way you handle them. Being an offense, even if small, it means that it's something against the rules of the game and therefore require an intervention. If it would NOT require an intervention, then it would not be a offense. What changes between them is the way you handle them, when a minor offense is handled in a more chill way than a big offense exactly cause the damage caused is clearly and obviously inferior.

  28. I hope you don't think that the "survey" that you posted in your YouTube channel is even slightly representative or should even be commented at, so I am going to forgo that you brought it up and address the other points from the view of a by-stander. You're right that you cannot stop people from fake reporting you that's just how people are like when they crave attention, however I am confused as to why you bring it up. You made it very clear in your posts that you think your ban is justified and that you accept it. So what is the point of telling people how the ban changed you and how you dropped the toxic behavior you were exhibiting? That just means you are feeling remorse and that you matured, congratulations. As I said, some of the things should probably have been discussed in private, but I really don't think it was done to discredit you. Calling it "the most immature thing [you've] ever seen from an admin" is just a mindless hyperbole. In general, I found his answers in this thread rather conclusive so far and I don't understand why you have the feeling of not being heard. Keita probably heard you a bit too well. Being toxic in response to toxicity is still being toxic and should be punished. So if someone reports such an altercation, both parties will get punished, or neither party, as I have experienced in the past. Naturally, that means that you have to hold your tongue more than others, but that is the price of fame, so to speak. Requesting leniency because of that is not the answer, it just extrapolates the problem. If a mod in chat sees [heck] like in your screenshots, I am sure they will punish the idiots accordingly, but of course they are not always around, not much you can do about that if you don't want to report. Then ignoring them is the next best thing you can do. Another point: Why are you so adamant that PreHax didn't get punished just because staff didn't oust him? Or do you feel that removal from the staff team is the only valid way of changing something? I mean, looking at it realistically, PreHax stopped with the sarcastic emoji reactions in this thread even tho he has been active in the forum. Just that my intentions are clear: I understand your problem and I don't want to convince you, I just feel that your view on the matter is a bit one-sided.

  33. Unfortunatly in every game that has a trade scene begging is something that comes with it. Creating a rule for this will do more harm than good as the line can be very thin when it has to be judged, will asking once for a Pokémon for story be enough to warrent a ban? Sounds harsh. The topic has been discussed in the past and we cant just forbid someone asking for a Pokémon as it will be impossible to fairly handle this. If someone is excessively begging it will fall under harassment, which is reportable. If someone is using false information to get free Pokémon, Money or Items it falls under misleading/deceiving, if the trade happens it falls under succesful scam. I hope this clears it up a bit, Sincerely Hawluchaa

  35. Do it more often between 2 big events, I like it I didn't feel like I had more pink on my side but it's my rng. I fell like Minum is ultra common. I just don't like that the scyther repel is gone.

  37. Please speak for yourself and not "the players". I for example do not want Felix to go. And I doubt that the majority of the player base wants that, its just a small group that doesnt like him, so state ur opinion, but dont say "the players" cause we might not share ur opinion.
