i'm making this thread more for personal reasons. so recently it's become a bigger and bigger problem that some players are using rulers. it's become so big that the problem is even outgrowing itself. what i mean is that it's obvious to me that for many players it's not just about using a ruler being a bad thing anymore. this paragraph will be a bit of a story. i've never used a "ruler" while playing this game. i bought this game not too long after it was released. back when there was barely anyone to even play with. most of the times i would come online and i just couldn't play at all because of this. at that time i got to like lvl 22-28 (can't remember the exact lvl). then i stopped playing for many months, came back and i was like lvl 48 (obviously due to exp modifications). from then i mostly did single shot rebound matches to lvl 69. after that i wasn't too intense about lvling anymore. not intense enough to sit through many more single shot rebound anyway. for the past 4 months i haven't been playing as much as before. in that time i'd take up to a few weeks off from playing. these days most of the matches i play are marksman, because when i play i like to multitask in-between turns. it's a very fun game mode for me because it's not just about who has the highest stats. even so, i am getting caught up in ruler hatred. not too long ago i was in a match with two others in particular. these guys were toxic and started accusing me of using ruler. they put such hatred on me for something i don't do. they have even asked me if i use ruler and i told them no. then one of them even talked about reporting me for using ruler. they were talking about videos like ssundee and other people using rulers and they are making it my problem. why treat me like a piece of shit just because of these videos? then a while after that i am seeing a player i don't know join my marksman lobby and start telling everyone i use ruler. i took this ss from in-game because i was having trouble scrolling up the chat from the lobby, but they typed these things in lobby. i saw their names just before they left. the first guy i had no idea who he was. the second guy i was in a marksman with earlier in the day. why is the ruler hate becoming a cancer that i can play casual marksman matches and this happens to me? also, i pretty much always have atmospheric nudge on in my rooms even though i haven't seen it in action yet (does it work?). my point is do not be like this because of rulers. using ruler is a problem. ruler problem itself becomes a problem when this shit happens. because you might ask for it, discuss below ways to stop players from using rulers and how to stop the problem from becoming a problem.
