  • Battleground Exploit

    So i noticead a new and extremely annoying phenomenon happening in battlegrounds as of late, players enter the battleground with 1-3 alts in the oposing team and all they do the entire battleground is kill themselves so to speak.
    Just wondering if this is considered part of the game, or an exploit witch in my opinion it is.
    Some of use actually have to work for our honor/kills then deal with the resulting dryads chasing us.
    Would love to hear an opinion from a g.m on this matter, thank you.

    This has been brought up before. It's legal. :/

      Oh the irony that one gains honor from such a dishonorable way of playing...

        My biggest complaint about people using alts in the same BG is that they can bulk-afk to completely mess up the way BG's are meant to be played. Never fun when only 3-4 members of each team actually participate - causes significantly greater quantities of dryads to get stacked (fewer targets means more dryads being created; fewer teammates means less people possible to remove the dryads). This behavior usually results in very long, boring, predictable battles and significant honor loss for even strong players.

          If I recall correctly it is considered an exploit and take screenshots and submit tickets on it.

          Battlegrounds is a pain when people bring in their alts just to afk as well. Very frustrating when your team loses cause of having so many afk or having no one to attack.

            Where is this? Alt farming is *illegal* last I checked.

            However, VIP 9 farming for honor is legal.

              I'd like to point out I see nowhere in ToS or in-game where it says its *illegal*

              I do have an alt, but I'm not attacking myself with it cos I dun fite in BG, but I've seen lots of players doing it, and I just assumed it was sad rather than bad.

                There are currently no rules against farming your alternate.

                    You may hold several accounts; however you may not exploit this privilege.
                    Wouldn't this be exploiting said privilege?

                        It's illegal. If this is somehow, some way allowed, all sorts of possibilities arise when you let alts interact with one another.

                        You may want to recheck this one.

                        And this quotes it perfectly:

                          pls state where exactly you were refering to that its illegal? it states that "You may hold several accounts; however you may not exploit this privilege. Any “bugs” (programming errors) playing any games released by R2games must be reported immediately to R2Games. You may not exploit any bugs to advance in the game. Exploiters will immediately be contacted and dealt with accordingly.
                          We may also change the nature of our services, change prices, remove and add games at anytime without notice.
                          "

                          bugs (programming error)..... exploitation of bugs is illegal.. but farming an alt is not a bug..thereforeit was never near to an "exploitation"

                          however, this > You may hold several accounts; however you may not exploit this privilege leaves a big question.. doesnt specify what privileges are not to be exploited.

                            That's exactly what I mean. Exploit. Clearly, this is occurring here. It's a dangerous slippery-slope from this argument to everything else an alt can do.

                            Even that aside, alts in any MMO have at *least* been frowned upon if not acted against.

                              another question.. why are they allowing alt accounts??? are they only for strolling in-game?? lol

                              so why would they allow alts if you are not allowed to farm/"take advantage of" them.. after all you own them, right?

                              and what's the difference of farming your buddies for honor and farming your own alts? seems the same to me.. imo
