I have been playing Fashion Arena for a month, now, and really enjoy certain parts of the game, like interacting with my club and collecting clothes. My only disappointment has been the lack of protection against abusive "ladies" in the fashion arena. I find it lady-like to only make fair challenges in the fashion arena, as in to equal or higher-level ladies. I admire ladies who challenge me from lower levels, win or lose. But un-lady-like players who repeatedly challenge lower-level ladies are just sad, don't you think? I've heard defenses from some of these people when I've questioned them, most notably "It's just a game" or "It's not against the rules", neither of which speak of a noble character or lady-like attitude. (I think they're men in women's clothes.
) Unfortunately the game offers no defense against this kind of abuse--no way to avoid or refuse challenges--so all we can really do is keep our bank empty, right? Or should we call them out? I prefer the latter. Since the first time I received a challenge from a lady ranked three or more levels above me I've kept a list, and I'm starting to see a pattern from certain clubs. Of course there will always be someone in any club who would rather win at all costs than be an honorable person, but certain clubs seem to collect these abusers. Below is what I call my "Wall of Shame"; it's my top-3 list of clubs organized by the number of different ladies from that club who have challenged down at least three levels against me:
WALL OF SHAME (current guild rank in parenthesis)
#1: *BGR* (11) : 14 down-challenging ladies
#2: Black&White (66), Corona Club (32), Magic (10) : 6 down-challenging ladies
#3: Beautiful Star (19) : 5 down-challenging ladies
The average number of down-challengers per club on my list so far is 2.
Just to give a thumbs-up to clubs that seem to be better than these clubs, here is my...
WALL OF FAME (high-ranked clubs from which I have 1 or 0 down-challenger names so far)
(2) Shangrila, (3) Glamyrka, (9) Fashionistas, (13) Exquisite, (14) Fashion Wizard, (15) Pink World
Cheers, and hope you all have a great weekend! I'll update my list with next week's abusers! Will anyone prove themselves as characterless as BGR? We shall see!
