    So i started the game about 2 weeks ago, i played it years ago so i missed it and i had a nice ride up until lvl 49 there was even an exp event which helped greatly, than hit a brickwall. 99% of the time people are offline when i am online, like ...everyone is offline, most players are from philipines so if you are playing from europe, do not expect to have fun.

    Just another day and weirdly enough, i got "chat banned 2" in-game today whatever it meant, or for whatever reason?!?? With 0 warning or anything.
    Returnee player here, lvl 49, and after 2 weeks i went my first CW and helped in pvp as much as i could, and it was a victory.
    I died many times, but i think i made an impact at least a bit.

    Afterwards 2 other races attacked Husk - Guardian of Core, and we fought but lost husk, and i asked as i did not know what will happen now, and do we still get buff or mining, someone said no.

    I said i have ore from daily quests and i would like to process it if someone would buy, one person responded right away, so i went to process a lot of ore - got 10 x HMW items worth a lot for me.

    And BAM, my name on screen and i had chat restriction.

    So:
    1. i am stuck with these 10 items which expire in an hour or so
    2. person who pmed me to buy did not respond or was afk
    3. i can no longer advertise to sell those items so i lose them

    Since i joined Accretia faction i had two people help me a lot and were very friendly, the rest were just cold, dead cold and silent towards me and never even responded to my single question to the game.
    And than they chat ban me, and laugh on faction chat, since they know i am stuck with hmw's i can't sell, and they find it entertaining.

    The person who did not respond and wanted to buy, Found me, and said on normal chat he had DC, he bought and was very polite.

    But overall.... i really have no words to describe how unfriendly this game is to new players, is it because of them being skeptic someone is actualy new player and not alt, or them being simply evil, it does not matter much to me as new player, i simply do not wish to play the game under those circumstances, on any faction.

    Community is questionable at best.
    I would say avoid this server.

    Game overall is in better state than what i knew before, it is more native to level up and do quests, but online game without the people, or with lots of bad people, is no game at all.
    Honor to very few exceptions i met along the way, god help you.

    Using "/all" chat for trade during CW.
    And dont lie, that during 22222222222 weeks of gameplay you never saw Archons anounce ppl about that rule
    -
    All other bla-bla-bla of yours = you didnt enter any active guild, so was playing vs ALL world solo
    Of course exp/farm and other gameplay will look unfriendly.

    But what the server has to do with that?
    You didnt enter any guild for 2222222222 weeks = ppl start to think you are smbs alt char = fair?
    They are bad - bec you didnt enter guild and didnt want to play in team?
    OKAY amigo... OKAY
    Write more of your bla-bla drama.

    I do not wish to argue, i am a grown-up recently returned to the game after quite a few years.
    And i am not from philipines, or brazil or whatever, but from Europe, so my timezone is quite different than yours and i can not expect people to hold my hand when it is their working hours or sleeping hours.

    To answer your questions, the entire time i played i communicated with people, but only very few ever talked back english to me so i surmised most do not speak english, for which i can not blame them. I did not expect people to not talk back because they think i am an alt, or they simply have a lot of built-up hate.

    Those few who helped me, helped me A LOT, gave me answers on how to lvl, gear, and i was often in parties too.
    I came back because of the EXP event, and it went really fast. And i completed almost every quest there is, and lvled my skills and PT to GM, which took a lot of time and effort.

    And the person who gave me gear and was very polite to me invited me to his guild "HayNaku" even tho i wanted to join up with 5110 who helped me the most, i did not want to turn down an invite as that would be rude.
    And while it is not very active guild, it is not dead/inactive, at least 10 people play there. https://ibb.co/rxFhF3j

    I was with you guys on CW, and i fought and died over and over again, and we won, and i fought to protect Husk, and we could not do it on time. https://ibb.co/HgJvHNL
    And than it was all over, and everyone went back to HQ.

    10 minutes later, after everything, after CW was done, i asked on /all chat if i should process ore from my dailies, to sell HMWs (as people told me to process before or after CW while most people are online) and people say yes, sure, one waited me to process, but later got DC and i could not sell, so i tried to post on /sell but i was CHAT BANNED.

    And they knew i processed ore, and they laughed on /all about it.

    So no, it was not about -Chat ban- it was about being rude and toxic about it.
    Imagine me being a new player ,and going through all that.
    I would never wish this to happen to any other new player, ever.

    I stopped playing cora due to the same reason OP listed. Everyone is such a weirdo skeptic talking about "spies" from other races. I don't imagine they are very smart...

    It usually focuses on how every Corite is offensive natured, so very few try supportive roles to summon Inana for curing. Those who mention "spies" are usually unguilded by self preference. They refer to the stealthy type of Ranger for weaponizing traps, throwing knives, and using a form of stealth or invisibility. The Accretian Phantom Shadow is one example, the Bellata Infiltrator another, and the Corite Assassin the final. Join a good guild, if you want to stay as a Corite for fixing your group trouble. Ranger types score kills mostly on unguilded people from them playing alone. Some players may prove them selves as very good, but switching PvP Mode to Active with no thought of the consequences produces this complaining about mysterious deaths. Of course you convert in to a constant target in each Chips Wars Quest. That causes you to acquire a PvP flag you can not turn off, so your problem continues after the Chip War. Learning to trade and bank is vitally important to earn friends or allies, so the activity helps keeping your PvP Mode to Friendly. Your Indicator of current PvP Mode is usually next to your Quest List, but that changes if you have a User Interface game modification installed. Installing a U.I. modifier may cause your game client to crash. If you have interest in Inana or prefer Bellata's version of Rising Force magic yet want to be of the Cora side, then consider a role for your self of either a Corite Specialist / Craftsman / Artist or Spiritualist / Summoner / Grazier.

    The most difficult of any Cora class includes Warrior choosing to be a Summoner at level 30. You find Isis lacking survivability like Paimon or Hecate, if you play a Warrior / Summoner / Grazier. Inana avails as the only Animus a Warrior / Summoner / Grazier uses to win in a battle against any attacking Ranger every time. You can not have Grazier skill bonuses, and that translates to Inana not debuffing your target or upgrading to her improved spells for your benefit. A straight classed Spiritualist / Summoner / Grazier takes much more damage, and a Specialist / Craftsman / Artist does not give out as much. These other two choices though achieve maximized Animus power, and a Warrior / Summoner / Grazier may not.

    A Specialist is superior to all choices available, yet it peaks in power latest of all in the game. People abuse Artist skill bonuses, yet they do not choose a Specialist to play. Why do people repeatedly ask you to drop a guard tower and not pay for it? They ask you to spend all money, yet they give you no supply from them selves. Think of that when you group, and you will find your answer as to why people mention "spies". I am aware that me saying Specialist does not define you choosing a Specialist or not. The point is some people do not have your gain in thought. Trading and banking helps you, and Specialist supports the idea of finding people to gainfully join. A good Specialist finds that people will try to assist you in earning a profitable life. They want your lesser items you no longer need from your crafting attempts like weapons and armor, and they want you to stop using your valuable crafting items going to trash on people. The sad truth is that Artist skill bonuses are not useful until level 50, but you can buy a Sealed Animus! That alone is worth every coin at 40. Yes. Inana, Paimon, Hecate, and Isis wear seal animal costumes on occasion as an RF Online joke.

    And in case you skip to the end first, I repeat that "spy" as a word refers to a Ranger who kills from hiding in stealth.

    Thank you.
