A dictatorship of a select few who don't care about our opinion.
I like our game. But I do not like the way it organizes the interaction within the factions. Both green and blue have the chosen ones who can do everything and the rest of the players who must obey the chosen ones unquestioningly. You can’t ask unnecessary questions to the chosen ones, because, alas, you can be kicked out of the chat, and sometimes even out of the faction. Questioning the authority of this "noble people" should also not be, for the same reason. The opinion of the chosen one is the law, even if this opinion is contrary to common sense.
Undercover battles often take place between such important people, there is a frank humiliation or removal (from the base of trusted agents) of certain individual players in order to maintain such an important status for a certain person in the structure of enlightenment or resistance. Lies, vile nasty things and all that are often used.
And the worst thing is, very often, a few people consider themselves so important that they have the right to decide for all the agents of the faction, and sometimes even all the agents of the game, how to play and what to do.
Sometimes agents stop playing after they become familiar with this phenomenon. They are taken to the local community, added to the official telegram chat, and immediately explained the rules of the game in style: do not go there, do not do that, and coordinate each case with the authorities. It only takes to one agent, God forbid, to cover the whole region without the consent of the "crowned person", so wild cries and removal of this agent from all chats immediately begin. Stupid bosses are not everywhere but in many places.
Let's consider a specific case, with the box we all know in which Brian gave information about the shapers.
There is a chat for deciphering all kinds of game riddles. There are people in this chat who know what happened to that box. At first it turned out that no one gave the box to anyone, then it turned out that the agents of enlightenment had had the box for a long time, but you wait, soon everything can be shown to you. I had only to ask why there is a delay in the publication of materials, and raise the topic of this ill-fated box, because more than half a year has already passed, as the chat admin banned me.
No, think about it. The whole faction, including me and thousands of other people, went to victory to find out the truth, for which we have been fighting for about 10 years. Many of us, myself included, have contributed to the latest anomalies. But as a result, they were left with nothing, because the "representatives of the elite" decided that it would be better for them. I asked for at least an official confirmation for the news telegrams of the channels that the information was passed on to the agents of enlightenment by brian. But in response, I was culturally sent to ... And when I asked to announce the reason for the delay in issuing information, and expressed suspicion about the ongoing events, I was simply removed from both chats.
Several or even one person has the right to decide for the entire faction. Don't you think it's wild?
How many decent players quit the game because one or more inept people familiar with the self-proclaimed leadership of a faction of a certain country just started spreading lies or slander? I have seen cases where a player in the area was not allowed to make a single worthwhile portal, just because the bosses of the faction ordered so. This player was an absolutely adequate and friendly person, despite the assurances of the players from his faction that he was a complete ****. No, many players often tell me that you can play alone, but I often saw how at any event, at this player, who went against inadequacy, meanness, nastiness, many people pointed the finger and said that he was a traitor, a pervert, and so on. After such actions on the part of certain players, you can forget about cooperation with the faction, any business where you need to work with several agents will be unavailable for such a player, each new agent knows that he has "problems" with his head, and in general it is better not to approach him. This is how people leave the game, due to the fact that there is no adequate interaction structure in some places for agents of either one or both factions at once. In many places, toxicity and self-importance are overstated.
Sometimes it seems to me that it's time to introduce a third playable faction, the gray one, which will be against everyone. All those who are not satisfied with the local self-proclaimed government will gladly go there. Something like that. No, I am devoted to enlightenment and my friends, but many agents would find solace in such a solution to their problem.
