How did Zenatur get refused advertisement on " user count feature" but Arcadia is still allowed? 120+ Online right now, whilst 300 on Apoc and 170 on Zircon. Logged on to check, there not 20 people on there let alone 120. Tai be fair.

How the hell is arcadia still on there anyway? What kind of magic wand does that server have that makes it stay at around 120 players for months and months?

We know how Mir players are, they blast through the content and leave rapidly, leaving a bunch of forum posts along the way, but there's not a peep about Arcadia anywhere, ever.

Zenatur and Zed asked to be removed from the list.
That's not true, there was a big thread about it when it happened with many members of LOMCN team logging on and looking for the 30 players finding nobody, it was then removed by Tai.

Arcadia should have the same fate.

That's not the thread, there was a thread LightBringer logged on and ran around every town etc and found nobody when 30 was online, i remember it vividly. Either way Arcadia is clearly botting users and it shouldn't be allowed to be on the UserCount list.

None logged beside Chalace and two others.

However i mentioned, if they feel the usercount been 'rigged' then to remove the displaying usercounts from ranks.

Then you should remove DarkSide server from the list too :)

Each players have 3-4 afk chars for some bonus.

I mentioned Arcadia's UC before, nothing was done about it, but I seem to recall 90% of the usercount are just AFK Stall characters.

You can sell things via stall characters over night, but you only get 10slots. So people create multiple accounts to create multiple selling stalls.

I mean, whilst the usercount is outright lying, it is extremely misleading when this is the case and I personally feel it needs to be -active- players recorded.

i'd like to see an investigation into this as well i've always found it quite fishy

to be fair there is some activity on arcadia's external forum but still as i said very strange for a server to have such a consistent player base for such a long time

All the highest levels from Arcadia are on Apoc saying how they quit because they couldn't find people to fight ever. Tiggy etc quit months ago when Zircon came out, it just baffles me time and time again it gets brought up and it just gets brushed under the table purely because its Scorp.

Zed if that's the Case then report it to Tai, something needs to be done its so misleading some poor ****'s download 10GB files to log on to find out there 10 active people not 120.

Was on couple of weeks ago. One of the main guilds (Mostly italians) with about 15 members seem quite active. One of the leaders is proper old skool - was saying he was one of the leaders of the CT italian guild on euro back in the day. They was also saying 30+ of the players that have recently joined came from some polish mir server thats getting dos'ed alot/become unplayable.
I'd say user count of 50ish seems legit.

How do you fix it tho? I played arcadia for few weeks and never seen anywhere near the user count advertised and thought that it was bit unfair and toyed with the idea could it be all those stalls or people in really deep caves but even then numbers didn't seem right but...

How do you fix it? Can call them out but need proof or it's just a witch hunt so how do you prove it?

The same ultimatum Zed was given. Given reasonable suspicion.
No harm done if all is in order.

Tho the 'stalls' have always been a loophole that shouldn't have been allowed, personally.

In regards to Zentaur.

It wasn't a witch hunt, people noticed an obviously dodgy usercount. 30-32 players on for 2 weeks straight, 2am, 9am, 3pm, 8pm, didn't change, and not a single other player in sight, or something daft like that, i don't remember.

He was given a dozen chances to defend the accusations, and he refused. A simple screenshot to show the 30 users logged in would have taken him 3seconds to get, if it was real. There is only one logical reason why he wouldn't produce it.

I doubt he cares either way

Removing a server that’s lasted longer then any other out there because you think the user count is fake lol, ye it might be but let’s face its over past couple years pay win servers are the thing (Arcadia included) but at least you’re investment is not going down in 12mouths. An no I don’t play this any more give my kit away 2years ago but I can’t agree with the argument when you got pay to win server open an closing within 12mouths
