Notes

  • Causes victim to brag about you, trumping whatever the victim typed into their current channel.
  • If used on a player who has Protects-Your-Junk equipped, the user who used the strings instead get the effects, and the strings are not consumed.
  • Puppet strings will only fire on a regular chat message. A /me message will fail to trigger the strings, and their next regular chat message will become stringed.
  • Puppet strings will not fire in /clan, /dread, /hobopolis, /slimetube, /hauntedhouse, or /talkie.

History

  • On August 07, 2013, puppet strings were temporarily removed from the swagger shop, presumably due to hinch. When they returned, the price rose from 100 swagger to 101 swagger, then went up to 103.. CDMoyer said the price would go up by 1 every hour. This wasn't happening for the first few hours, which made it seem as if it wasn't happening, but then a few hours later it rose:
    [pvp] CDMoyer: Puppet strings are going up 1 swagger in price every hour until you collectively disavow hinch.
    • Robot Porn (in-game) has reported that he, hinch, and at least 1 other person have their cost at 169.
  • Strings went back to 100 swagger on September 1, 2013.
  • Prior to August 08, 2013, puppet strings used on someone wearing a Protects-Your-Junk reflected back to the puller, and the strings were consumed. It is unknown if strings pulled this way stacked. After this update, the strings were no longer consumed, and the strings did not stack.
