Fine idea in theory until you realize that you are playing with the staffer regardless of what you actually do.
1) Staff rotations happen, and you have roughly 1/3 chance to go from "not playing with the staffer" to "the staffer is over your clan now". Then your options are to store and play somewhere else, keep playing but stop submitting reports; you keep playing as normal and wait until you get screwed over. If you choose to keep playing under the staffer, expect them to not handle the transitional period between staff teams particularly well for you/your clan.
2) The staff member still exists, and playing in some other clan is not an escape from them. If they want to, they will interfere with you in animations unrelated to any clan. They will interfere with you by talking shit about you on the IDB and casting doubt on efforts to advance your plots.
3) If the staff member that dislikes you is particularly crazy, they can make a mortal PC and play in your clan. Mortal PCs are unbound by the staff rules regarding PK, and Admins+ can be logged into their staff account and mortal account at the same time, giving them a birds' eye view of the game while they are acting quasi-ICly on the ground.
If your only goal is to get away from a bad staffer, your only real solution is to leave Armageddon until the staff member leaves the team. Anything else is a half-measure. Yep. By definition. To extend the tabletop gaming example everyone seems to like, if you dont like a DM dont play with him.
dont let the thread die, especially when he's targeting people based on affiliations now.
I am also curious what you mean by that. I see that Shalooonsh threw a bit of a hissy fit yesterday on the game's Discord channel, which shows that he has not really changed since his last outburst. Something about how taking questions on the game makes him tired (the poor thing).
qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
