Howdy kids. I hope you’re all having a rooting-tootin’ly fine day. I for one am rejoicing at the recent news. My suspicions of NYC have finally been confirmed. But then again, I am also of great sadness. Whilst there is clear evidence that NYC scammed up to 35 million forsals (excluding any dupes accused to belong to gbt), this criminal received only two weeks ban. Effectively a slap on the wrist.
Part 1: Leniency for the Ultrawealthy
Much like today’s situation in the United States, part of this short bantime was due in part to the wealth of NYC. Satan himself said that:
since NYCempire has never been a problematic person on the server and he already is about to lose all his assets including the city he worked so hard on we’ve come to the agreement to have him banned for 2 weeks.
This is kind of excuse really is quite crap. No leniency has been given to such a player ever in the history of HelloMiners. Never has such a slap on the wrist taken place from the staff. No member of the community, including those who have put just as much effort into their own work, has received this sort of response. The most viable reduction is, of course, the 20% reduction for honesty. This would be 40.8 years out of the 51 years they should be banned. 0.08% of the ban time is what NYC instead received. Absolute bollocks. Historically, the most significant player to be banned for duplicating was Molderion, by CommandoBeta.
From my personal recollection, Molderion’s duping was barely a fraction of what NYCEmpire has done. They were banned for just over a year. 20x what NYC received. How is that, exactly, fair? It’s obviously clear from this, and other cases of the past - including gbt’s bans - that this punishment breaks precedent in an unorthodoxly negative way.
Part 2: The Downsides of Youth
This, my fine, learned friends, is complete bollocks. Not only does the evidence suggest that NYC scammed the government out of millions of forsals, but was aware that the stashes that gbt had - which he willingly used - were impossibly large and obviously duped. This is due in two parts:
- NYCEmpire has extensive knowledge of Slimefun, possibly the most out of anyone on the server excluding staff
- NYCEmpire has an inordinate knowledge of the HelloMiners server, perhaps to a greater extent then someone who has only played for as long as they have.
NYC could not have unwittingly gone along with the stashes and used them innocently. He knew they were suspicious, knew they were causing an unfair advantage for himself, and still used them. So why was this considered in his punishment?
Part 3: The Response
While most have widely rejoiced in the banishment of this cruel sinner, some are rather remorseful. A certain powerful figure in the government city game has even guaranteed that they keep their plot and that they are donated F100,000 when they return. Satan has admitted that finding all the exploits of NYC-GBT will take well over two weeks, which gives NYC plenty of time to exploit the exploits. That boy always has a trick up his sleeve
Part 4: The Connection
Now, I hate to link to a loon, but 4K actually makes some half-decent points in the connection between GBT and NYC, something many have always been suspicious of. Please give it a read.
Once again, I decree that NYC simply received a slap on the wrist. Instead of this, we should all unite in kicking that man’s can right out of town! Hurrah!
