    Exclamation CASINOS AND OUTRAGES IN THE GAME, READ IT🙏🙏

    You know, I’ve been playing this game since the beginning of 2013 and have already seen a lot. I saw how famous personalities changed, casinos and various other games appeared, how hacking developed, how our first Growtopia YouTubers appeared. I literally went through all the stages of the development of this game and I know an incredible amount of subtleties that even some oldfages do not know...

    What I’m still leading to is that recently the sphere of casinos and illegal games has developed and the number of illegal worlds is only growing. In addition to all this, there is not a small number of nuances which many moderators do not understand, for example, lock hunting (but now is not about that).

    In recent months, when I enter the game, or rather, in the world selection field, I sometimes see a bunch of casino links. During the day in the game (on average I play about 4 hours a day) I see more than 100 casinos and various illegal worlds...

    Here is what I usually see and it irritates me


    When I come and report the world, even after several hours it remains open. Also, I often can’t directly contact the moderators or game guardians, because they simply don’t appear online. When I see at least someone, I immediately write the name of the worlds (dear moderators and game guardians, sorry for being too intrusive, but in another way I can’t be sure that the world will be banned soon).

    Regarding casino-like worlds, if I had a little more powers/permissions or connections (what I was leading to), I could begin to trace not single worlds, but entire networks and, thus, remove the threat from the root. In the beginning, I’m even ready to provide constant information or to be able to communicate with moderators and game guardians with 100% probability.

    I have applied for the role of game guardian, but I'm afraid that I was not chosen as one of them. Understand, it’s important not only how many people will follow the actions inside the game, but also the quality of these people. The important thing is how much a person can invest in the game, how much time can he spend and how much knowledge he has about the game.

    PLEASE READ THIS IN FULL.

    Now I just wrote about the casino and what catches the eye most often, but I want to warn that this is not all. If you give me a little more time, I can describe a lot more problems...

    Lmao ngl but If I was appointed as a game guardian, I'd literally clean the game from casinos 😂😂😂 but then again, there's a limit to how much one can do. I'm pretty sure mods are doing their best. Imagine banning 60+ csn worlds a day which is like 420 casino worlds a week

    I've given my solution already and I guess it is too extreme for people to handle.

    Each new account made is now considered a demo account and is locked in a way. You can't chat,trade,drop write on signs,sb. You will get to experience enough to decide if you want to fully unlock your account for a certain amount of money or maybe watching adds.

    What this does is prevent making a lot of throwaway accounts used to create problems. At least if people do it will cost them time/money and support the game.

    It wouldn't change the game overnight but over time you would see less amounts of problems.

    It's up to the developers to care and come up with an answer. If not eventually the game will lose enough real players that all that is left it's bots and alternative accounts.

    No.. just no... Just like Law said, that would instantly ruin the game for new players.

    I have seen bots and spammers lvl 90+ I think the only way around is to start hiring more mods. At least people who know the game pretty well. I met so many 2.0 mods, I'm not gonna mention names because they're pretty awesome and willing to help but they lack game knowledge + A lot of the new items/suggestions being implemented are from new players and not us old players...

    It would also ruin the game for people trying to make alternate accounts for spam bots, auto and hacking. I really don't know how many new players join the game. It seems like Growtopia has peaked. The game also loses players because of the problems that already exists.

    Just saying something won't work is fine but without expanding on why a person thinks it won't work makes me think they didn't put a lot of thought in the response.

    We’re sort of derailing from the topic presented by the OP here but I thought I might as well respond to this because it peaked my interest. (Spoiler below addresses the reply I put in quotes)



    To the OP: you’re right. Even when I log on, I see the same things as you. As a 2014 player, something I used to often do (which has resulted in me making many friends and memories) was surf through worlds. I can’t do that anymore. The problem used to exist with drop games, then trust tests, then world trade scams. Now it’s with casinos. It’s very rare nowadays for me not to be bombarded with casino world links in my “random world suggestions” tab.

    There’s a viable solution you had already mentioned yourself: hiring more guardians. Thankfully, Ubisoft’s doing just that. Now we can only wait to see results come from it; hopefully they choose the right candidates for the job. The least we as players can do for the time being is highlight the issue.

    it's what you make of them
    that shapes who you are.

    They already rejected my idea before in a previous post so it isn't something I think would be a reality. My real answer to the problem is to learn to accept it isn't going away and just ignore it.

    I just have to agree to disagree on more guardians. I don't think adding 10 guardians from 1000 applications is going to pack much of a punch. I also think they are reluctant to add a lot of guardians at once.

    Is nobody gonna point out that he’s trying to apply for being a guardian? I guess people were missing a big point of what he was saying. My dude, you can’t apply here, even if it isn’t a formal application. You didn’t get picked, oh well better luck next time, just apply when the application pops up again, don’t put your “application” here. If anyone had any shot at being picked by making a thread like this, the whole sub-forum would be filled with these types of posts which is why they specifically only pick from the applications. I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but you aren’t going to become a game guardian from just this post alone.

    Of course they aren’t going to add too many guardians. The problem is that there are not enough mods that are active to keep track of the game guardians, so bringing too many of them at once could be a recipe for disaster. If 100 game guardians are added at once, then there’s a high possibility that at least five of them will abuse their power in some way. It’s just how it is
