@TEN-SQUARE-3 It's one thing to legitimately like a player, or want to visit their quarters after seeing the amount of work put into their characters, it's another thing entirely for them to farm for likes, when they didn't exactly earn them. Like4like is a bit on the more annoying side of the game, as they are only trying to use what's cool to farm SG, instead of genuinely just trying to make a cool character based around their tastes. I can't speak for Leap, and It doesn't directly affect me, so I don't bother those players, but it does kind of annoy me, because it just reminds me of those spam accounts on Xbox Live that do like4like, and it's another major reason I avoid social media, as it reminds me of users that seek clout.
Well I can’t speak to everyone that’s high up on the lookbook list or uses lile4like tag, but I’m currently sitting 5th on mmost likes on ship 1, and I put a ton of effort into making my matoi clone. Literally hours upon hours in the saloon, never mind the months of farming I did to get SG for the scratch so I could get all her outfits. The whole char is built around my tastes, and i certainly don’t do it for the SG, I passed those milestones a long time ago, I do it purely cause I enjoy it, I’m not even a player that hangs around in populated blocks, just my alliance home block, so most people never even see me.
While I can understand it being annoying if people were spamming in the lobbies all day, that’s hardly the case the most I’ve ever seen is being put up a status underneath their name when they go afk, which you can very easily ignore. You don’t even have to do that, you can just use the search feature on lookbook and send out likes that way, which is what I do. I specifically only search for Like4like, so anyone that doesn’t want to participate isn’t constantly getting likes from me. Which does bring me back my initial question how is Like4like nasty and annoying when, if you’re not interested in it at all, apart from a couple of status with Like4like or visit my PQ, you can completely ignore?
