Did you ever got defamed for doing nothing wrong?
Like i was in korean folk town and on a field there were a kanna and a thief that grinded or something . I just simply went to a platform and wanted to cc and got defamed by these two for no reason. Lel.
Funny thing was that the thief was level 112 and the kanna 75.

Did that happened to you too once.

    I mean, if that's what you want to do with your time, fine. I can just go do a few quests and gain 20x what you took from me so go for it.

    Yaaa sure, I was on a low level character using the monthly Robot stores bought via RPs and I was locating my store on FM 1-6, So, when I am putting the item prices, a j%#&k, tells me to leave that spot, cause "I don't have any worthable to sell", so I don't listen and keep doing my stuff. Then, pum! Defamed, he finally leaves the room not before telling me that I'm noob and a kid and all that brainless stuff.

    You got there first. He can go to another room and set up shop there. Free Market shop spots are first come first serve. Didn't get a spot? Sucks to suck.

    It happened to me every so often a few years ago that I now instinctively leave maps as soon as I see someone enter. And it just so happens that all the random defamers are low level characters that look like throw aways. Every time I try to ask them why they defame, they log off right away.

    Once I was afk in the FM entrance on an alt and someone actually went through the trouble of defaming me multiple times. Some people have far too much free time.

    There was one time where my friend was afk in Henesys.

    He had like 4 fame before he afk.

    When he came back, he had -15 fame.

    I tried my best not to laugh when I found out that his ex-wife did it.

    Some dude randomly defamed me once. Then he found out what 50 mules can do.
    In all seriousness though, why do we even have this system anymore? It used to be a requirement to have 20 fame to use certain items a long, long time ago. It really doesn't have any use anymore.

    That requirement still exists for those equipments. But nobody uses them anymore so it's moot.

    We have the system, supposedly, to show how popular you are. But with those "love letter" events that keep coming around, that's moot too. You can have thousands of fame without any user ever faming you. Also, fame gives Charm.

    The only times i defame people is when they are being toxic, for example this:
    Random guy: *enters map & starts grinding whilst i'm there*
    Me: Could you please cc?
    Random guy: You mad bro?

    This.

    Specifically, after doing the "Beauty or Beast" quest. As soon as I'd leave Amoria I'd get at least three defames right away. I don't know about now, but back then the prevailing wisdom was to just not do that quest, but I was always optimistic that I'd get a result that wasn't horrible.

    And then I married another player (in game) who somehow got the idea we were in a relationship in real life. Honestly, I just wanted the extra quests and stuff, and I thought we were on the same page, but he was only interested in cyberstalking me. Long story short, he maxed out his character slots just to follow me everywhere I went and defame me, and had his friends/guildies defame me, too. Within a couple of days I went from a decent fame count of a hundred-twenty or so to like -50.

    I think the problem with the fame system is the ability to down vote. Is there really a point to defaming other than being spiteful?

    I defame toxic players or people that start farming a tiny map that I'm farming (if it's a big map I don't mind sharing). I like not feeling totally powerless against annoying players, but the random defames are just... confusing. A while ago I was walking to a different map and got defamed 3 times before reaching the portal 0.o

    Owell it happends, you always have those people who spend time in keeping them busy defaming you or relogging chars to do.
    Just smile and say thank you to them.

    Then buy a loveletter, do a quest and your fames are back.
