See more details in the letter for NEXON :
My name is Takigawarei and I’m a player of Counter-Strike Online (CSO) in Taiwanese server, I’m also a YouTube Creator.
This letter is about the problem about the attitudes of Gamania’s, which is the agent of CSO in Taiwan. They seemed not wanted to solve the problem which is taking place in the event of 2020 Global Wea**** Design Competition.
One contestant used a misconduct way to made people who don’t even play this game voted for his artwork, also we found out he didn’t even finished the artwork, but Gamania still chose it and let it attend the vote.
For this competition, all you need to do to vote is login your Facebook, so the contestant 001 went to a Facebook group where people help each other to like their post or vote for their own good, and the people don’t know each other in this group. What made we felt unfair is people in this group don’t even play this game, some Facebook accounts are even empty.
Though Gamania didn’t restricted any “promotion” about contestants’ own artwork, but this kind of promotional me was way too unreasonable, and Gamania proclaimed that contestant 001 didn’t break the rule so they couldn’t deal with it, and they couldn’t restart the vote or ban contestant 001 from the competition.
Plus, the rules clearly stated that “If contestant didn’t used the out line that the official provided will be regarded as forfeit one’s right.“
By the meaning of this line, as long as the draft that contestant used isn’t the same as the official’s one, the contestant won’t be able to join this competition.
Contestant 001 chose to design “Gungnir”, the draft that official provided contains three different angles of the weapon, but 001 clearly has only two, and his artwork still made into the finale vote, and even use an inappropriate way to promote his artwork.
What Gamania replied to us was 001 didn’t violated any rule, and they proclaim that if he could made into the competition, it means his artwork was approved.
With the logic of Gamania’s, if the contestant pay money to buy spam bots to vote for his artwork, he could just win the competition easily, which means he doesn’t even have to put so much effort on his artwork because it can be approved by only using a part of the draft anyway. This is unfair to other contestants who actually finished their artworks.
Every artwork in this competition, except for 001, had finished their work by using the draft official provided, and they did complete the different angles that the draft had showed.
Only 001 made it into the vote without finishing the artwork. What made me even more upset is Gamania’s attitude when handling this incident : Gamania neither well executed the voting mechanism nor stated a rule that only people with CSO account can vote. The voting competition is using an external website instead of internal one.
At first Gamania said they would choose 5 artworks for the vote, but at last they chose 8 instead, which made the voting website separated into 2 pages, that means some will be place on the second page of the site, since the artworks are place randomly every time you enter the site. Some people wouldn’t notice the tag of the second page, so that some artworks won’t be seen.
All in all , I hope NEXON and the development team of CSO could help us with these problems. I supposed that Gamania doesn’t have that much right to make this kind of decision so I wrote this letter to you.
Finally, I want to thank everyone who work for the development group for all the contestants whose right was violated, we hope you could defend the right of ours, I truly appreciate it.
Here’s the screenshot of the evidence that 001 wrote a post in a “like & vote exchange” group, the post is now deleted, but it did existed for a while. (Please show the attachment to an employee who knows Chinese, so you will understand what happened in the screenshot.)
