    i was playing smash with all of my sibling accounts afk to grind xp, and i received a warning for "XP grinding". i read the rules prior to doing this, to make sure i was not breaking the rules. can i continue to do this? or will i get banned?

    EDIT: i have been given access to xp farm in non-ranked matches, so it is allowed, and i did get a warning for nothing.

    "I was plying smash... to grind xp."

    "I recieved a warning for 'XP grinding'"

    Sounds pretty self explanatory to me. If you get a warning, chances are its an implicit rule. Remember that the games were designed to be played, not used as XP machines.

    Its because you actually have to work to get items, so you are able to farm. If you got a warning for xp farming, its obviosly not allowed.

    im really trying to understand that statement. in the first sentence, you say, "you are able to farm", but in the second sentence, you say, "obviosly not allowed."(it's spelled obviously). wdym?

    Most people who go on MineZ and farm zombie kills are just doing it for the speed potion that comes with the 5k achievement, they're not necessarily doing it for the XP (it's also a pretty lousy way of farming XP, because it takes a lot of setup and it's quite slow).
    I think his point is that farming zombie kills in MineZ is significantly more work than getting a couple alts in Smash, so it generally gets a pass. And again, there are far faster/easier ways of getting XP than that, so nobody cares anyway. I don't really know what the rules are in each situation though, and I'm not here to argue that.
    I think that's called a typo. I'm pretty sure he knew how to spell 'obviously.'

    can some moderator give an unbiased and neutral response? all i been given is people who enjoy discouraging new players.

    and since it looks like my complaint is not simple enough, i was grinding xp, using the accounts i have. i also like the fact that no comeback responses been created. if a moderation doesn't answer, i'll just continue my grind. i do this because it would take at least a year(probably a month without paying money) without help from other people to get a decent amount of xp, and i do this because i have other things to do irl instead of play 24/7. also, if a mod doesn't allow this, i can just farm this broken spot in minez i found for xp.

    As an earlier response of mine was quoted already I'll keep it short and simple. Take into account that this mostly applies solely to SMASH, as other games will have other systems and statistics.

    If whatever you are doing is influencing the gameplay of other players, is giving you a higher ranking or ELO or gives you an advantage over other players, it is prohibited. In ranked matches it's out of the question. If you want to go into a party game and spend your time constantly knocking an AFK friend or alt out, then more power to you.

    Warnings do not stick. They are there to get a message across that is very very hard to miss. If you get another warning, please DM me on either Discord or on the forums. There is no need to make threads about it.
