Player Report - Samantha Rigga

Post by Surrealistik » 02 Feb 2018, 01:04

Your Byond Key:

Surrealistik


Your Character Name:

Sur 'Druglord' Lahzar


Accused Byond Key(if known):

No idea.


Character Name:

Samantha Rigga


Approximate time and date of the incident (Central US Time for fastest results):

~11:55 pm CST


What rule(s) were broken:

Rule #1: Don't be a dick


Description of the incident:

Samantha Rigga deliberately ran into my already in progress burst fire; seeing as she had no armor at the time she did it, she probably removed it to improve her chances of speeding into my burst fire.

I can only presume she did this in an attempt to get me banned due to EORG which was successful (banned by jaketeaking), both because of her history as a soft-griefer, and because the action was blatantly deliberate and willful.

A 3 hour ban is a total pain in my ass as it's easily half the time I can devote to CM or more during a given day.


Evidence (screenshots, logs, etc):

Unfortunately I didn't have any video recording going; all I can share is the log at the time:

How you would punish the accused:

Permaban.

Barring that a note + warning and 24 hour ban.

Well I mean I literally shot her only once (and with the second shot of the burst) during an end round spam discharge of my rifle; I also asked her why she did it right after; at worst it's an accident, at best she ran straight into the burst.

That said though she is a known griefer/shitler; this ass has some pedigree.

First, like Feweh said, we can't prove that Rigga intentionally ran in front of you, nor has any type of OOC grudge to get you banned.

Second, this could have ALL been avoided if you had NOT fired your weapon after the round ended. Especially for a long time player such as yourself, you should know that you are potentially opening yourself up to problems by shooting after the round ended.

I'd be surprised if he doesn't have notes demonstrating a pattern of this sort of griefing behaviour.

Further, players shouldn't have to be paranoid that griefing fucks will run into their LoF to get them banned.

Posting for character witness here, not specifically for this incident but as a testament to the soft-griefer thing. I was playing PO on Big Red (I have a log from later in the round that doesn't capture these events, but it's from January 31, ~6PM EST.), when Normandy was called down to evac Bravo smartgunner at LZ2 due to buckshot FF shortly after first drop. Rigga ran into the dropship after the smartgunner and punched him several times while he was injured, causing damage that I noted on my MedHUD at the time. She then proceeded to run off the dropship, whereupon I tried to give chase but was accidentally shot by the smartgunner (I was later ahealed - maybe there's a note relating to this incident somewhere).

Later that round, I noticed an (unconfirmed by me) accusation from an SO that she'd attempted to push an aSL into a boiler cloud. This was logged and I have a screenshot here: https://i.imgur.com/vNu17qo.png

I would also post as a character witness, I have seen Samantha riggs do this behavior in the past, specifically deliberately running into pulse rifle fire.

I really don't think there's enough character evidence in the world to prove this claim.

I remember speaking to Rigga during the Smartgunner incident. The Smartgunner ended up with a note for improper escalation after he tried to bring his smartgun into the fistfight that started when Rigga "accidentally" punched him while he was being treated, causing the smartgunner to panic and escalate the fight rapidly. But now I'm beginning to have second thoughts...

Rigga was, for whatever reason, on hostile intent, which is what makes a human punch instead of push or hug. They also didn't make an attempt to deescalate it, and I don't even think they apologized for accidentally hitting the smartgunner. It was almost as if they wanted to try and further damage the smartgunner while he was already in serious condition.

This concerns me, because "soft griefing" is hard to detect, and if Rigga really was trying to tip toe the line to mess with people, then maybe we'll need to have a talk with them.

On the other hand... Why were you shooting your gun wildly during the end of the round? Someone with your experience should know that spraying wildly for no reason is bound to go horribly wrong one way or another. Even if what Rigga did was on purpose, you shouldn't have been emptying a magazine all over the place in the first place, because ERG is taken really seriously here, I and swear I seen people banned for simply shooting their guns wildly in general. Combat log spam is not appreciated, you know?
Sometimes, bravery comes from the most unlikely sources.

I was on and happened to see the VV in this case before the round ended.

There was a single attack log from sur to whoever it was he shot. I saw the person shot laying there and Sur firing at a rock wall on LV. I didn't catch the person's name who was shot (as in, I didn't pay it much mind as Jake marked the relevant Ahelp before I did), but I'm sure they're the one who sent an ahelp about being EORG'd which is what got my attention to the location in the first place.

No opinion on the subject at hand otherwise as I didn't do any investigation into it after I saw Jake handling it.

Personally, I see this whole report as pointless. There is no way to prove someone ran into your bullets and you didn't just hit someone because you can't withhold shooting at the end of the round. Literally, all you have to do is just not shoot for no reason and you can't get banned. This report is basically built on personal claims of the reporter, you, and without proof to back it up, it could be fake.
Frankly, I'm not going to start witch-hunts over people because "This person ran into my bullets at the end of the round so they need to be punished, not me." As far as the rules go, we're not going to start to ban people, let alone perma, because they got hit by a bullet because you think it was their fault. The whole point of the EoRG ban is don't make combat logs and that's what you did, even if you didn't mean to hit the person. Just have some self-control and don't shoot your gun when people are around you and you can't get banned, it's that simple.

I can't prove it, but I figured I'd try to get her punished because she absolutely did beeline into my bullets and it's exactly what she deserves, nevermind all the other griefing shitlery she's gotten into as other people in this thread have mentioned.

Samantha Rigga is a scumlord piece of shit soft-griefer that deliberately tries to annoy and harass people while skirting the razor's edge of the rules and, as we've seen here, even successfully exploits them, who deserves a lengthy ban.

If she actually reported me for EORG for one (1) glancing shot she walked into, that itself is some pretty damning circumstantial evidence.

Resolved.

No way to prove this report in anyway.
