Why Thank you. You have been very helpful. James Slimm 00:00, 26 May 2012 (BST)

I OBJECT! You can't welcome yourself, Vapor! Grr! Argh! *shaking fist* --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 00:06, 26 May 2012 (BST)

Scent Trail

Up ahead you see a sign. It says: Now Entering the WTF Zone.

Abandon all brain cells ye who enter here

Sorry, Vapor, but that (Scent Lost) thing only works if you were originally killed as a zed. Unless, of course, you use a few simple commands...(Oh, and FYI, yea, we may have used this early on. You guys struck us when we were testing and having fun with the many URL hacks available, see, so us knowing where you were early on into this isn't exactly that much a surprise. Would explain why I constantly edged you all on to kill me when I'm zed. *whistles casually*) :P --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 07:47, 27 July 2012 (BST)

No, we pretty much figured it out the first time Meeso died. So... maybe half of your paltry kills were due to a cheap trick... pretty sad, actually. Also, we're still preparing a smorgasbord of freshly-prepared newbs, level six and under, just for you, Axe, so hold on tight. You should be dining in luxury in no time! *sticks a fork in some Agent cake on her plate* -Abby Omination 09:31, 27 July 2012 (BST)
As Kirsty has said, "Using poor coding is not cheating." In a way, it sort of balances out for the advantage you have in a smaller number. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 14:10, 27 July 2012 (BST)
I also suspect this is the reason you wanted to hold a manhunt in your burb. But that's just craaaaazy talk right there, I bet. James Slimm 15:30, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Manhunt? Not exactly a manhunt when the targets are the locals. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 15:32, 27 July 2012 (BST)
A manhunt would be PvP against agreed upon participants, with no local involvement. Throw in the locals as targets, however, that becomes a PK event, such as Samhain Slaughter. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 15:34, 27 July 2012 (BST)
I'm referring to the "special event" you originally aprocahed 15A about then later the FOD. "Hackfest 2012"? Is that a better name? James Slimm 15:40, 27 July 2012 (BST)
You should read through that again. It's not a manhunt event. It was a PK event. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 15:45, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Meh, to be honest you weren't explicit in that the vicitms were to be non-participants. If it looks like a manhunt and smells like a manhunt, logically we concluded that it was a manhunt. Still doesn't remove suspision that you wanted to use url hacking for a leg up. Clearly, you had already used and acted on it in pretty recent past. James Slimm 16:13, 27 July 2012 (BST)
I have even specified in the invitation that it was a PK event, even using such rules that you wouldn't find in a manhunt event (such as the clause of being allowed to hide wherever you want. I never stated you had to hide in Gatcombeton. I only stated all PKs had to be made in Gatcombeton). And as such, with a PK event, how useful do you honestly think the Scent Trail thing would be if anyone is a viable target? So really, is it my fault that you lack the proper reading comprehension skills needed? If it was a manhunt event, why would I go through the trouble of asking all groups to post their kills on O13's forums when posting it on the wiki would be more ideal? If it was a manhunt event, there'd be an event page up for it. Why would I try to keep the event hush hush? Perhaps it was 'cause I was trying to keep BHer retaliation low? Have any of you ever thought of that? The point is, the invitation specifically stated "PK event" and not "Manhunt event". FoD actually had the best chance of winning the event even if they showed up late, 'cause FoD is the largest PKer group around. Both PK and Cobra have less then 10 members, and even then, since some folks of O13 have alts in one or both of those groups, their participating members count would have been even lower (and both those groups declined due to their low member count). Not to mention O13 originally planned to claim all its kills with a member that had zero combat skills. So, again. It is not my fault FoD has a much lower reading comprehension skill then I had originally expected. If you wanna try this again, I'll send out another invite whenever the next KH game is released. Whenever the hell that is. And I'll even write out the invitation in a way FoD can actually understand. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 16:37, 27 July 2012
You're dodging the issue here, Axey. You used a cheap method of knowing one of 15A's member's exact location after they killed you and then acted on it. Is that one of your 36 strategems? Did you get that from the Art of War? You then went on to ask us if we wanted to compete against you in an event. No thanks. Good luck in your future events Axe Hacker. James Slimm 17:02, 27 July 2012 (BST)
I'm dodging the issue? It's not a cheap trick, but it is a cheap trick. It can be argued both ways. Pro-survivors would claim it is cheap, while pro-zombies would claim it isn't. Here's how I see it: you're just jealous O13 actually thought of using a simple URL command to track people, something that you never thought of until Meeso's death. It's an information obtained via in-game, is it not? We used in-game information to locate you, and no outside sources. We used a zombie member as bait, and you took it. And as such, we obtained perfectly legal in-game information. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 17:33, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Oh man, you nailed it Axe. I'm smitten with jeaslousy that I didn't shamelessly exploit a bug that I had no idea existed until a week ago. BTW, Meeso intentionally trenched you at that RP because we suspected you were using that hack and I added the sprays to try to get you to admit it. You may consider yourself a master baiter, but I think we caught the bigger fish, here. James Slimm 20:59, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Har har har...I get it. --ШəəϨо ϨоЯЯλ 21:10, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Look. we can sit here arguing for days whether or not the usage of URL commands are considered fair play or not. But I'm not gonna argue this shit 'cause its silly. URL commands are 100% legal, in my opinion. You might not think so, but that's your opinion. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 22:14, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Hello, Org13 management? Can we speak to another service representative? I'm afraid this one is tugging off on the job. *sighs* Human physiology is disgusting, don't you agree James, Mee- oh, uh, except for you guys. Yeah.-Abby Omination 11:26, 27 July 2012 (BST)
See, this is the problem with the players in this game. It's ok when a zombie group does it, but, oh, when a PKer group does it, everybody calls foul. Fucking hypocrites. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 23:03, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Hey, hey, hey watch the slang. At least until I put on my frolicking boots. Don't change your dialect one bit. *where did I pit those frolicking boots*? James Slimm 23:56, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Oh no, we've reached the point where everyone is going to face his wrath! Now he'll sure as hell end it, whatever "it" refers to! All hands, on deck, prepare for AXEY RAAAAAAAEG. BRAAAACE fer impact! *prepares umbrella, grasps ship's wheel with both tentacles*-Abby Omination 02:26, 28 July 2012 (BST)
I don't care if you don't like URL commands. O13 doesn't play by your rules, we play by our own. I was a zombie, therefore I had every right to use a zombie tactic that had been in use since 200-fucking-5. Such notable examples of notable groups using this are literally all around you in the zombie metagame. If you never heard of this shit till last week, well, that's your lost. Perhaps you should have paid more attention to the zombie meta. I told you before, O13 employs every side. And employing every side means we use every tactic. This shit is war, not some light lunch with cucumber sandwiches and tea. So DEAL WITH IT. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 02:52, 28 July 2012 (BST)
Mm.... cucumber sandwiches with tea.... I wonder if that would go well in pie? -Abby Omination 7:31, 27 July 2012 (BST)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but TL;DR summary: people complaining about ?rise again, yes? ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 03:02, 28 July 2012 (BST)

Scent Trail exploit, Rev. You know of anybody using it since 200-fuckin-five? James Slimm 05:21, 28 July 2012 (BST)
[20:21] (Revenant) Using the ?rise scent trick in the XP headshot days was how Grim overtook Petro in deaths :D <----- Yes he does. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 05:30, 28 July 2012 (BST)
I do hate to break it to you, Vapor, but I was discussing this with Rev in IRC and, sadly for you, he's in full support of O13 using the Scent Trail trick. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 05:34, 28 July 2012 (BST)
Another thing. You can still Scent Trail by using only ?rise. All one needs to do is go AFK for maybe about 15 minutes or so when somebody is shooting you, and when you come back, use the ?rise command. Skips the step of having to log in through your contacts. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 05:40, 28 July 2012 (BST)
Ooohhhh, well if Grim used it it must be fair play. Ya hear that, Meeso and Abby? Some notable examples of notable groups right there. Haha. I don't really care how O13 plays, Axe. I just find it funny how you thought you had outsmarted us. Did you really say "Come at me, bro"? Hahaha. Guess you ought to go hit the books again. 36 stratagems. LOL. James Slimm 06:09, 28 July 2012 (BST)
Sorry, James, but Urban Dead is SERIOUS BUSINESS. Did you hear Waxey? "THIS SHIT IS LIEK TOTALLY WAR EMPLOY EVERYSIDE STRATEGEM STRATEGEM STRATEGEM METAGAME!!!!1111" He then quoted some random famous guys on the wiki, so everything he says MUST BE TRUE. Stop arguing James! Oh wait, you already did, several paragraphs up. And Meeso and I did before that. Maybe Strategem McThisisWarboy is reassuring his own doubts of its legality then? ;) -Abby Omination 6:34, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Wait, I'm famous? Why wasn't I informed of this? I demand to speak to my publicist immediately, post-haste! ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 06:44, 28 July 2012 (BST)
*holds up Revenant's publicist's disembodied ears* Sorry, the other party cannot hear you right now. If you would like to join them, press ear number one. If you would like to disconnect, press ear number two. -Abby Omination 6:47, 27 July 2012 (BST)
Deep down, we all know O13 negated your advantage of having a smaller number. And now you wanna agree this is within the borders of fair play? Honestly, when someone is telling you to come kill them when they're a zombie, I'm surprised you weren't smart enough to figure it was a trap. Triple U literally advertised this as much as he could, and groups such as Occupy the Armz and the RRF used this trick. You should really spend more time in the zombie meta rather than toiling yourself away in the PKer/survivor meta. I mean, seriously, I find your lack of intelligence rather disturbing. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 06:53, 28 July 2012 (BST)
Is "Run Away" one of the strategies? I think it's the last one right? Because I'm pretty sure that's what happened. The four musketeers pushed the mighty Org13, right outta Gatcombeton. Or was it just Hacky to retreat. Did that make them Org12? James Slimm 07:00, 28 July 2012 (BST)
I've mentioned you were of low priority to us. Do you honestly think we care about what you're doing in Gatcombeton? You took a backseat to DHPD. So sit your ass down and wait your turn. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 07:10, 28 July 2012 (BST)
You can keep trying to get the last word, but it doesn't change the fact that you've lost this argument on whether URL commands are within the borders of fair play. I know you guys hate losing, so just keep coming up with any rationalization you can come you up with to make it feel like you haven't lost. Go on. *pulls up a seat* Give me a good show and lemme know what you come up with. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 07:19, 28 July 2012 (BST)
Is that all you can come up with? That's a shame. Oh well. --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 07:26, 28 July 2012 (BST)
