Not sure if this falls under abuse or if it is a bug

I did not think it was possible to be attacked so many times. I *'ed the name for that persons privacy. Normally I would retal and get some help, but I think this is an issue worth investigating at the very least.

Most likely a bug, you are suppose to go into protection after 5 attacks during your login session (you don't get message until you session has ended), unless you re-logged in after being sent into protection. I will take a look at this tomorrow.

I have had a similar experience. My notification stated that I was attacked by the same person 3 times within the same minute.

D**e attacked you and won.You lost 238320 coins.

I'd hate to actually be losing all those coins.

They might be exploiting certain url. We will try to prevent more of this from happening with our next patch. If anyone see more people attacking them multiple times within on session, please private message me their character name and level (you can click on their picture to see their profile to get the level).

Is there a reason why I only seem to get attacked as soon as I leave the game? There're at least 3 players who hit me, literally, within the minute of me going to my home page to get a gift or the like. The part I don't get is the consistency. Same 3, always within a minute or so and its been like this the past few days. If it were within 10 min to an hour I might not think much of it, but within a minute every time? Regardless of the time of day?

short answer: yes it's normal to see attacked messages soon as your are offline.

I seem to be getting this now - same person everyday. Im not quite convinced of any "cheating" yet but if it continues then I will report the person concerned.

I've definitely attacked a few people 2 or 3 times within like half hour of each other, I saw that they didnt have a priestess when i was fighting them so I took note of it and they evntually popped back in my list of arena people. Idk if this illegal to do if so I'm sorry but I definitely see people more than once in arenas.

I think this is why I was being hit by the same people - have to admit that now Im using the arena Im doing the same thing and keeping track of those with no healers. Nothing personal but it saves a hell of a lot of skill points and makes for much faster fights - sorry guys but at least you dont lose anything. And then there are those people with around 20 Con - how the hell have they got to 50+ with so little ??? Its strange that they would not spend their huge amount of cash on at least a few points - they are an instant target as even as a dragon slayer they go down in a few rounds.

On the plus side I saw an admin post saying that after 5 loses a player gets removed from the fight list in the arena so its not too bad for them and there is always the option to buy the invisibility cloak.

I cant see how multi-hitting some body is aginst the game rules as the people are simply showing up on our arena list. If a person is using some form of cheat or glitch to continualy attack some one it would be a different story.

Ack I've attacked a few players 2-3 times back to back in the past few days. It only happens rarely but sometimes a player will pop back onto the arena list after I defeat them and then attack someone else (they are not on the list right after I beat them, but after I fight another p layer they are there again).

Since some players take 200 skill points to kill and others take 1000+....when I see a fluffy dog picture....I attack it!!

Is this wrong?
