Dishonor?

As in you bring shame to our family for stealing faction?

Finally ffs this is so awsome --Cursed Angel 07:22, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Finally! If I had this a long time ago, my failure to keep up my 29 win streak in AB due to leechers wouldn't been that bad. Now if only I could do /reportluxons.... Flechette 11:24, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Not all Luxons are bad. Like the ones that don't AB! --Vipermagi 15:41, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
Says a member of a faction that used to use EoE bombers guesting in luxon guilds to sabotage the luxon side, and who can forget the good times when kurzicks could exploit the gates in Kaanai Canyon to capture points before the match even started? Yeah, you're an honorable lot all right. May the might of the armada never falter! -Gildan Bladeborn 20:28, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

"Dishonor?As in you bring shame to our family for stealing faction?"-I lol'dLyra Valo LVS 11:15, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Well, Gildan Bladeborn, I have never ever seen that been used once and I have doing AB since factions came out. Are you sure your not jealous from the time we held deep luxon for 2 weeks? People could say the same to you, in my exprience, luxons use touchers and mobs 7/10, not exactly very honorable. Kurzicks are honorable, people may say we are not if the kurzick teams decides to counter-mob the mob with massive AoE capabilities, which on several encounters, resulted in a full luxon wipe. The first two comments was likely from Don Pygoscelis if anyone here is familar with the name. I am a Kurzick but I don't hug trees. Flechette 23:47, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

The REASON you held deep Luxon territory was because of the EoE bombing. The Luxons literally lost the game before it even started and so the Kurdicks always won even when they sucked ass (as always). If you recall properly, once ANet finally got around to fixing the EoE lamering the Luxons held deep :Kurdick for a few days straight. Also, I don't know about touchers on Luxons and don't see many Kurdick touchers any more (people finally getting a clue? idk), but Kurdicks mob almost every single game I play in. In any case, Kurdick territory sucks anyway, I don't know why we'd want to take it, it's dark and you can hardly path half the time cause you can't see the ground. The Sea is so much better... --Gimmethegepgun 23:58, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Both sides suck, get over it. Stop whining. And from my personal experience as a Kurzick, Kurzicks are definitely NOT honourable, almost no one in Guild Wars is. And i've also been a Luxon, you guys suck too. Kurzicks suck, Luxons suck, AB is the shit hole of PVP, Done.--Darksyde Never Again 01:11, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Yup. Sums it up pretty well. Though I do like the sea better, if just because I can actually see the ground all the time --Gimmethegepgun 01:13, 1 October 2007 (UTC)
My experience in ABs is this: the Kurzicks mob all the time and the Luxons are all internet toughguys who don't know when to shut up. We're both groups of total idiots and I think that our best players live 12 hours apart from each other, because usually when I get home mid-day, we're in deep Luxon territory, but when I play early morning, we're deep in Kurzick territory. I tell ya, ABing is fun when you turn off all-chat and have a team that knows not to run into the part of the radar that has 20 hostile markers on it. :D~ GoldDeanIconDean</small> - 03:03, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Im noticing more Luxons leaching or leaving in Fort aspenwood than anything, litteraly, if i see "X X has left the game" X being a part of the charactors name, or some guy who sits still in the starting position all game, its almost 100% a luxon, and its getting anoying >:( maby they should make a new weekend event: double dishonerable points for leaving/leeching XD

Anet did it backwards

Players have incentive to leave if they don't want to play with noobs and idiots. The solution is to have separate arenas for players who are bad at the game and for those who have more experience.

How do you propose to divide "bad" and "experienced" players? That's like rank discrimination all over again, so don't even think about it. 14:18, 21 Octboer 2007 (EST)

For myself, after I type /resign I just switch to the internet browser open in the background and do other things until my team gets finished off or also resigns.--Mont 07:44, 28 September 2007 (UTC) ":It's stuff like that that made ANet introduce this new system Silver Sunlight SSunlight 08:13, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, Anet's idea and intent are good, but I've all ready seem worse outcomes because of this. The main one is people who suicide. I'd rather they leave than suicide, cause at least it shows their intent. I hate leavers, but this fix doesn't feel right either. I do like the idea of ranked arena play. The only PvP where they match you up based on skill right now is GvG. That's pretty low for an initially PvP based game.

But the true backwards part is the gladiator title. You have people just playing arenas for the title. I personally play the arenas for fun, and it got a lot less fun once titles were introduced. Remove the titles, remove the lechers, leavers and the suiciders. Actually, you may still have some who do it for faction, but it would do more to help than the dishonor system. Honestly, if the only reason your in the arenas is for a title, than you should be doing something else anyways. Something you would do just for the fun of doing it. --Mooseyfate 16:36, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Just because they don't sit and afk doesn't mean you can't report them. They are still being dishonorable by suiciding and ruining others' chance to win, so they can still be reported. -Desi 22:37, 28 September 2007 (UTC)


More simply, it's been a no-brainer for a long time that Anet should reset the counter for how many games a team has left before being transfered to TA when a player leaves. For those who enjoy RA because of it's shorter time commitments and random element, it's broken gameplay when replacement team members are the only members who don't get a Glad point (because TA teams frequently are impossible to defeat without a coordinated team build).

Having players leave mid-match if a team member leaks that their team already has a number of wins, as I've seen happen, poisons the community.--Mont 16:57, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

So I get punished if...?

  • Players who report a team member for leeching without a third of their team also reporting that player will also receive 2 dishonor points.

So if my team doesn't know how to report or just chooses not to, I get punished? If more than 2/3 of my team are leechers, (unlikely but plausible), I get punished?

On a side note, can I only report people inside my 4 man team in Alliance Battles?Lyra Valo LVS 15:11, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

Are you stating that second one as a fact and asking why, or is it asking for the answer? And to your first note, that's to help with people that just spam reports at people as griefing, if they do then they get dishonor and eventually won't be able to play --Gimmethegepgun 15:14, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
To accrue points because someone on your team didn't /report would suck, but you should still /report leechers. Besides, who stays in an area of the game when there's a bunch of leechers? If you have to do this multiple times within a couple hours, why would you stay in that part of the game anyway? Go take a break and do something else. --Mahsa 22:50, 1 October 2007 (UTC)

Wow, will this really work well?

I bet I'll get dishonor points for being a noob that goes about nuke-capping shrines in AB instead of heading towards a large mob with my suicidal teammates (esp suicidal if we're one short due to a leecher/afker). "Stick together team", uh no thanks - you don't win by charging into a mob at _their_ res shrine. Then I can't play for X minutes.

Why don't they just add an Exclude list (a bit like the Ignore list). If I don't want to end up in a team with someone I put them on my Exclude list. Sure someone could try to add everyone in a random arena's district in order to create a team, but there are easy ways around that (e.g. for every person you have on your exclude list, your odds of getting into a match are reduced -seems fair that if you want to be picky, you don't get to play as much ). Something like the Exclude List has been suggested before by others, and I haven't seen any well reasoned objections to that idea (I suspect some objectors could be leechers who know it'll work too well ;) ). I don't end up in the same team as someone on my Exclude List, but we both still have a chance of playing with others.
Hard to exicute changes to CHANCE of including team members, might mean a rewrite of the engine. Sometimes the SOLUTION is bigger than the problem! RT | Talk 18:02, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
It's not hard. I write programs and that sort of thing will be trivial. The trick is actually figuring out what formula/curve to use that most players will think is fair AND actually works.
The solution to this problem is to do alliance battles with people you know, and only take strangers for a missing slot. Unless everyone you know is already a jackass, in which case you're pretty much screwed. -Gildan Bladeborn 20:32, 28 September 2007 (UTC)
That doesn't help for Aspenwood. Leeching is not usually a big problem in AB, since the team usually kicks the leecher the next round and often word gets around quick. In AB I suspect most leechers are actually AFK'ers - while they were waiting ages to get in, they had to do something etc.
Another problem with this is people might use their exclude list not only for leachers/leavers but for people that they don't think are good players, so that they have a better chance of getting a good team and leaving the new players without a chance against the more "elite" teams.--File:Wiki-signiature.GIF Apprentice (talk)|(contribs) 21:19, 26 December 2007 (UTC)

The 5 points for leaving prematurely

I don't think there's any way to tell how many points you've got until you hit 10 -Ezekiel 13:55, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

Exploited?

I could see this being exploited by players. I commonly EoE bomb aspenwood(as in killing everything on the map, except turtles, via EoE), and I get hated for it, but what I do isn't against anything stated here in the dishonor article. I could see somebody say in team chat "Hey, report Teh Uber Pwnzer for leeching, if enough of us do it we wont get in trouble" and I would get this debuff. I love aspenwood bombing, and I don't really wanna see it get ruined by this, even if other people hate me for it. I could also see this being exploited to keep noobs with extremely bad builds from joining. In conclusion, I think its a good way to weed out leechers and leavers, but it leaves it open to be exploited to weed out players like me just trying to have fun(see: [[1]]). --Teh Uber Pwnzer 22:58, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

I don't think ANet is just going to go with the players' word. They probably made themselves a nice system that when a report is sent, it'll show a log of all the player's actions in that instance, so they'll see that you're not actually doing what they claimed and maybe they'll even get in trouble for lying! :D~ GoldDeanIconDean</small> - 23:03, 28 September 2007 (UTC)

?

could u get reported in ra for using a tank build so u cant be killed and whaiting 4 the other team 2 leave? eg shadow form sin

Remember there's now a time limit on matches. Means if your party gets wiped and you're the last one, your team probably has the lowest morale, so you end up losing due to the tie-breaker. But I guess you could also be reported for bad manners by the opposing team, though.
You cant be reported for anything except for whats listed in the article. So you should be able to use a build that cant die, not that there is a point, as there's a time limit now. What I'm saying is that this will probably get exploited how I said above. --Teh Uber Pwnzer 06:22, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
If you get reported for this, just submit a ticket to anet! They'll sort em out! RT | Talk 19:10, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Bullshit....

I leave a RA match early cause a jerk on my team is running a 55 and I wasn't going to sit around waiting for the other team to get bored, so I leave and get 5 points, they add up from existing points that I apparently had... No idea how that happened... and I get locked out of pvp... Its bullshit, I did nothing wrong...--Alari 05:05, 30 September 2007 (UTC)

You could have resigned, or alt tabbed and done other things. It's only 5 pts for leaving so unless you did it twice in an hour you wouldn't have been dishonourable. -Ezekiel 08:33, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Alt-tabbing is bad advice. If the other players have a clue, they'll report him, netting 3*2=6 dishonor points (makes little difference, but is certainly not better). And it's wasted time for everyone involved. If you don't want to play, then
  1. /resign, and hope your teammates do so too
  2. if they don't, either play even with a 55 in the team and leave at the end of the match,
  3. or leave, accept the disonor points and be prepared for 60 minutes of PvE it this is the 2nd time this happens.
(Unlike waiting it out, going Rurik on your team will allow you to avoid the dishonor points. Which is why I predict RA will settle near the previous grief level, rather than going back to pre-glad state.) 134.130.4.46 00:24, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
In the situation where all your teammates bar one are dead, and that teammate does not have a res, where there is no chance of that player winning against the enemy team, and you are in RA; Alt-tabbing is perfectly valid. What's the difference between sitting there dead saying nothing, and being alt tabbed web browsing; to your teammates, none. I am against leaving in nearly all cases (excluding the "time until next match") but in that specific case there is no loss by alt tabbing or going afk. If however they have a res and hadn't gotten a chance to use it, things would be different -Ezekiel 09:22, 9 October 2007 (UTC)

An absolute joke.

So the noobs cry and get exactly what they want again? That's why I've quit this game.

--172.189.241.14 09:32, 30 September 2007 (UTC) Queenie.

It's better than a few people (read: ragequitters) getting to leave whenever they want just because they "think" they're not going to win, preventing their whole team from winning simply because they're down by numbers. And besides, why should new players have to take so much grief? So what, you never want any new players to play the game? That means that ANet makes no money, which means the end of GW. How else are you supposed to gain the experience necessary to PvP if no one plays with you? Elitism at its finest, there, folks. Kokuou 10:16, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
If you quit the game because of RA, then I have nothing but pity for you. 220.101.138.130 10:23, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
I totally agree, I have nothing but pity if you left just because of a system that makes the elitists who Wthink oh this team is crap" have to pay up for ragequitting and ruining matches for other people... Every time I've got around 6 wins in a row in RA, I got some ragequitter who joined the team because someone else had to go, and they immedietly go oh this team sucks and quit..--TimOfDoom 10:26, 30 September 2007 (UTC)
Yeah when i saw Queenie's comment i was like "someone who plays for ego". I like it when new players play Guild Wars. What i don't like is people who bash other people. Whether it's a nooby wammo/ammo/demo, or someone like queenie who rubs their /rank in everyone's faces. Play for fun, teach the newbies, and be proud of yourself when they got mad skillz and maxed titles for being the person who taught them to play =o--Darksyde Never Again 01:23, 1 October 2007 (UTC)


We can't change that a large portion of the time experienced players will rag on noobs. Everybody wins if Anet finally made a PVP area for noobs. No reason for it to be such a difficult experience for noobs to learn how to play PvP.--Mont 04:04, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

I wonder how you would do it. RA that cannot be entered if you have any pvp titles? -Ezekiel 08:45, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
Seems like they could just create separate RA circuits for those with glad1 and below and those with glad2 and above. As long as players are attracted to RA, Anet should put in these minimum changes that would make it less frustrating. As it stands it just makes Anet look incredibly lazy and not in touch with what the community is doing.--Mont 01:36, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
This could make it harder to find a group though, especially when there's not many people on. Unless the two bled into each other when no opposing party joins. -Ezekiel 02:09, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
Most people would probably be happy if the res sig was non-removable from RA bars and flashes when a team mate dies. Thats my main beef with RA.--Alari 02:11, 6 October 2007 (UTC)
Hmmm... does this sound familiar "R9+ GLFM" This is freakin rank discrimination all over again. It's called RANDOM Arenas for a reason, cuz its random.

Abuse

I got reported because for leeching because i ran a good smiting build in RA, and got this "hex". Doesn't seem fair that people report me for that. That's far from a good reason to do it. Btw i've been on winning streek with that build, so it's not even bad. But, that still has nothing to do with the case. Should people get reported for running a 'bad' build? Or what noobs think first is a bad build without trying. With their mindless builds taken right off Pvx, i dont see anything noobish in my trying new alternatives.

but there are no leechers! nobody leeches RA, think about it if you dont help your team, they face another team 3 vs 4 and will loose. you get little to no faction and no glad points so nobody does that. people will go afk but thats not leeching and before you could just leave if someone went afk. all this system is for is to coerce you to play when you dont want to. since you cant leave now for any reason, even if your team is noob or theres a leaver, the next best thing is to kill yourself or not try in terms of saving time, and its then that this report for leeching thing gets used out of malice. dishonor was put in place to punish you for ditching noobs and the report for leeching is used to make you pretend to try so the noobs can feel included. Its like slap in the face to players who play to win in ra and serves no useful purpose, even noobs despise it. and again there are no leechers and i dont really resent people afk to the point where i have to report them, its quite stupid really. and like afk players dont care if you reported them and therefore any use of this system is already abuse. they should divide ra into two, one ra will have the system and report feature available and the other will not. EVERYBODY WILL PLAY IN THE ONE WITHOUT THE SYSTEM, why? because everyone that actually plays in ra looses huge amounts of time to this update.

1. You're playing in RA. This has always happened.
2. Everyone has to start somewhere. You don't like playing with noobs, go HA where people actually discriminate rather than complain about a system designed to cater for everyone (RA).

This system is flawed

Why am I getting Dishonorable in Rollerbeetle Racing if I lag until I'm at least 100 miles away from the nearest beetle and resign? -Yikey 09:11, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

Yeah im getting the exact same problem. My computer lags i resign and it counts it as leaving? =( Or i enter a battle and then it doesnt load and sends me back to the Rollerbeetle racing "waiting" area and counts it as leaveing...hmm ? X lorien X 04:35, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Remove Hex?

Could you use remove hex in Isle of the Nameless? Cos it's a pvp area... Just a thought :P Evilness Kills 12:12, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Guild Wars treats Great Temple of Balthazar as PvE area it seems. I couldn't see this hex upon myself while there. So It shouldn't work on Isles of Nameless either. J Striker 14:17, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
You can also use PvE only skills on the isle.--Gigathrash sig Gìğá†ħŕášħ is hosting a beauty pagent! 04:37, 28 April 2008 (UTC)


In AB, ragequitters should loose faction

Anyone else really getting sick of the quitters in AB? I think they should loose the faction (max 500 or 1000, say) they have on them, in addition to dishonor points. The only problem is connection timeouts, what to do about that (no one should be penalized for that, of course). GW-Susan 16:37, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

It's very easy to ctrl-alt-del and end GW to make it think you were disconnected. People would get around the penalty. --AlariSig 17:09, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
AB is serious business. Lord of all tyria 17:12, 22 May 2008 (UTC)
Well then, I guess you should loose the faction--on average it will most often get those it should get (maybe after second disconnect). I personally would be willing to loose faction occasionally to get these f-kers GW-Susan 20:05, 23 May 2008 (UTC)
A 500-faction penalty for dropout, maybe a 100-point-a-minute for AFK'ing? Could balance that against a 5-10% increased faction gain, to try to keep unavoidable D/C's (and life) from net lowering faction intake. On average. I don't know what you'd do about someone with a skittish connection. - 20 Oct 2008

there are no rage quitters only people raging after someone left their team. such is their hatred that their whining got this crappy system in place. the same people out of malice in game refuse to resign making it a completely useless feature (not to mention noobs never resign). the report system for leeching is there so they can further coerce good players to baby sit them. if you dont try they report you, which is unfair because at a damage level theres no difference between a noob and a good player not trying. its just update brought about by whiners who couldnt stand the fact that some people were playing to win, the guild wars community is very crappy that way.

It's been a long time since I've seen anyone leave an AB match from either side. That said, why would you resign? It gives you dishonorable in AB. If you don't like playing with newbies, go play PvP where your team isn't entirely randomised. King NeoterikosKNsignature 23:09, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I only use /resign in AB to shit around with people. "omg kurzicks have mending, they are too strong QQ" -> "/resign" . It's just a joke; I've never seriously seen an entire team /resign out. For AB, even if I know I am going to lose, I prefer to play till the end because I can still score Balthazar faction for killing stuff... and there's no fun in quitting five minutes in, especially on those days where you have to wait 15 minutes to get into a match. Besides, sometimes there are remarkable come-from-behind wins or tiebreaker wins, and those make the game worth playing. + :It's been a long time since I've seen anyone leave an AB match from either side.

King NeoterikosKNsignature 23:09, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I do see a lot of rage-quitters, though. As soon as it looks like the battle is going bad, or they find out their monk is a smite monk, or whatever, they're like "omg you fucking noobs" and then they leave. Sometimes things really go badly after that, and we lose <100 - 500...sometimes we win anyway. Meh. Entropy Sig (T/C) 23:11, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Just a thought

Usually if people are going to leave because they don't like their team, they'll do it either during the countdown, or really early on in the game, so why don't they change this system so that after the first minute or 2 of a game, if you leave, you do not get dishonorable points? It is REALLY annoying to be in RA, and then your team dies, and you're the only one left (a monk), and your res is used, but when you leave (because obviously staying just wastes EVERYONE'S time), you get slapped with a dishonorable penalty.... this system really needs to be looked at.205.250.78.245 07:08, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Have you considered not healing yourself? Felix Omni Signature 10:31, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
That works, but then there's still the delay of waiting for the "returning to outpost" countdown to run out, and if you leave during that countdown, you get a dishonorable penalty.205.250.78.245 21:05, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Reported today

I got reported today for leeching... It was in Ra...

4v4.... opposing team had 2 monks

we had 1 monk... nothing was dying

I lured a sin away from his monks, to kill him in the poison swamp area.

Other members of my party died.

Got reported for leeching while i was fighting the sin... 98.193.121.227 20:39, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

If everything you stated is true, try filing a ticket with anet. They have the capabilities to review data like this, and any damage done would easily be reversed if so. -- Isk8 I~sk8 (T/C) 21:25, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Needs some sort of (careful) buff

This has failed to stop at least one particular warrior in Luxon FA. In any given session he's leaching a game or two. To the point where it's annoying to have to wait for the match to start to report him. Seems everyone knows him. He must have amassed hundreds of reports against him over a relatively short period of time. Why not kick it up a notch for repeat offenders? An hour cooldown I'll accept for the short-term before points drain away (and certainly this must slow them down), but we need some lasting build-up for people with the drive to continue to define themselves as parasites.

I suspect currently in competitive missions guilds/alliances are using a rotating sabotage-leaver strategy, pervasively. Thus, maybe long-term dishonorable should be bleeding through to one's alliance/guild as well, somehow. Probably needing to follow leave/join (perhaps if the guild were to simply take on a percentage of its members' long-term dishonorable?). Problem dishonorable combatants/guilds could simply be kicked from guild/alliance. --02jul09

Ban the leeching bots

This system sux Do nothing against bots and leeches. I can see the same leeching bots in fort aspenwood over and over again for a year now. Active players are affraid to report because they get hexed for reporting. Isn't leeching and botting agains the policy ? Why don't you anet ban all the leeches and botters that ruin this game ? You have the logs you know who is leeching and using bots for years. I don't care for gold farming bots because at least I don't see them . I am sick of leeching bots that join pvp match where all active players are working hard for their rewards!!! --81.168.168.148 04:33, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

in JQ and FA i first reported people for leeching and no one else did...(apparently in FA people cba to go back to the start of the map to report someone(at least on luxon side) but then when i got bored i alt f4'd guild wars once we had "died" for losing and then after finding nothing else to do went back on guild wars to find i had dishonour.....even though the game had finished...cud this be cause of the really short wait after JQ/Fa to go back to town that leaving once game is over still gets u dishonur?? 81.155.195.67 10:34, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Well going by what's there, you got at least 2 dishonour for reporting by yourself. If that happened a couple of times in an hour I guess that could be it. You may have gotten another 5 for using alt f4 instead of just mapping out. -Ezekiel [Talk] 01:53, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Lame

This shit is terrible and needs to be removed.

I agree and it IS NOT stopping the leechers at all. It's hurting the people that actually play way more then it's hurting leechers.

Only quarrel

I like this system and its punishment for all on-purpose leavers (Serves them right). I just wish ANet would fix the damn DC bug. I was in FA today and I got hit by a huge lag-spike which took 6 attempts to get back on from, perform an epic win, and then locked out.

Major clean-up

I have overhauled the original article as follows:

  • I have not added or subtracted details in this edit; if there's information missing, it was likely missing before the edit. (Unless noted below.)
  • I have put the point-system into a matrix, so that it's easier to see what disearns points.
  • I have removed the largely editorial (i.e. disdainful) tone of the some of the info.
  • I have reclassified some bugs. Whether something is a bug, feature, or anomaly is largely in the eye of the beholder, so I have used these rules of thumb:
  • BUG: ANet has admitted it's a bug or it's obviously inconsistent with the intent of the system.
  • ANOMALY: It's roughly consistent with the system's intent.
  • FEATURE: It's thoroughly consistent with the system's intent.

I am only attempting to clean up the presentation and language; I assume that details have been included in good faith. Those that play more PvP than I should clean up any errors of fact repeated from the original text.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 17:31, September 25, 2009 (UTC)

Fix this or Remove this.

Anet, don't make something if you CAN'T, this shit system is still full of shitty problems. People want to report people for "Leeching" that are not resigning or tanking / running @ PvP. 62.45.219.131 14:20, May 16, 2010 (UTC)
