    I am looking for clarification on a particular matter. First off when I have been playing dragons of Atlantis heirs of the dragon a player named Linebacker has repeatedly attacked me I asked him nicely to stop and he would say that doa is a war game and to get over it when I tried again he became utterly rude eventually I got tired of it and started sending him the same message "plz stop attacking me" at the most I sent it at least 27 times I looked at kabams terms of service and noticed part of it mentions flooding and spamming does sending those messages repeatedly count as flooding\spamming, is there a difference between the two?

    Sending the same message 27 times would be considered flooding and spamming because you're sending the same worded message for the same purpose many times off in a short period of time. It's like sending an email to me saying "hi, how was your day" 27x rather than once...the same message is clear; sending it multiple times is overkill.

    There is nothing in the game preventing someone from attacking you as many times as they like. I found when i was a lower power and level i was farmed; where most times if i was nice and messaged the person they would leave me be...such as "hey i'm new to game and trying to learn it, can you not hit me as often please, i'd appreciate it. thanks" goes a lot further than "plz stop attacking me".

    If the person were to message you cursing you out or non sense as that, then you'd have a reason to report them, but otherwise it is part of the game. You can use a dark warp device (you get at least one at every 5 levels) and warp to a random new location, but there is no guarantee someone will not hit you there though.

      I'm having the same issue with multiple members of a particular alliance, despite asking them more than nicely numerous times to please stop attacking me and leave me alone. One of them even went so far as to tell me that I should "Try another game like legos." Every other person I've sent that request to has obliged and left me alone, save for the members of that alliance. They keep hitting me then warping so I can't send them another cease and desist note. I can't get a thing[ done because they keep stealing my stockpiles of resources and money that takes me forever to build up because of this. I finally got sick of it and contacted their Alliance Leader last night. I don't know for certain as of yet if it'll have made any difference, but that's one course of action you could take. If they're part of an alliance, contact the leader of said alliance and tell them that you've repeatedly asked them to stop but they insist on harassing you.

        I wouldn't go as far to say it's harassing, it's more like people are finding this person an easy mark/farm for resources. Level your storage up to 19 (gives 950,000 per resource safe from attack), que up troops in smaller amounts, or use a dark warp and move your location. Gold is the easiest commodity in game, attacking people yields far more than trying to wait for it to build up, which is essential for research.

        Look up the alliance on the alliance/power list, are they a top alliance? You're better off stroking their ego and playing nice to get them to stop. When I was much lower power & level, I was told "learn to level up and power up, i had to defend myself at lower level, its a learning curve" when I asked people to stop. It truly is a learning curve. Like Almerane said, you could always contact the overlord and see if they are willing to help and rein in their members, but its no guarantee.
