    Guild fixing GB week after week

    On s113, Guild TITANS is fixing GuildBattle week after week to their ends. They have accepted mercenaries each single week, on one occasion from 3 different Guilds, to make sure the contest runs their way. They have also sent their people out to other Guilds in that regard. They are routinely accepting the #1 Char on the Server into their Guild for GBs, thus ensuring they win, simply because he is so overpowered. Battles they would have lost for sure during the last weeks, they won because of him.

    They are actually cheating the System, players and even r2 by abusing a flaw in game design. The mercenaries as well as the guild mentioned earn honor, Insignias, but more important SoulStones and training whips they dont deserve - each week. It has been reported to r2 using the ticket System, but it seems that hasnt changed anything. The competition falls behind more and more, even on Individual level, as Titans members enjoy highest rewards week after week, but not because of their own Strength or capabilites, but just because of the guildkick/apply mechanism allowing that kind of abuse. Theres no catching up in soul engraving rly if the opponent simply earns 50 more a week in a week where they shouldnt have earend any at all. In regards to Training whips, the abuse borders on fraud, simply because training bought with Balens is devalued by the practice of mentioned Guild. THEY get something for free unjustified which other people pay real money for.

    I urge r2 to look into this.

    Ok, I tire of reading to-and-fro arguments on this GB issue.

    We're aware of this issue. Kastergirl, go file a ticket on this particular abuse by the Titans guild -- if you claim it to be.

    I'm closing this thread because there's nothing new to add.

    This.

    Even if you argue "all's fair in war," you have to understand that a lesser guild not employing some kind of social engineering will have a drastically lessened chance to even compete. Said guildhopping can relegate all guilds to an eventual final loss. How is that even remotely fair? The only reasonable method, outside of long drawn-out conversations, for a lesser guild to re-sway battles is to purchase real life items out of game (read: bribe) to mercs (which is also abuse/against ToS).

    All of this... not to mention that this merc'ing is probably being done by kicking to get around the guildmember cooldown (yet *another* confirmed exploit).

As an ex Navy Seal i am aware of the Geneva Convention, but to that end, are you or have you ever been in a War situation. Just saying when you are you do what you have to, survival is your only thought. This isn't much difference, other then if you don't like how the war is playing out, you can switch servers and hit the reset button. In real life there isn
    t one. So count your blessing you are in a game where you are free to whine about things, and if global war ever breaks out, stay as far away from me as you can, cause you will perish for me to survive.

    I did, and the Geneva convention is RL, not a game, read what you wrote and linked, or stop your whining already. The solution is simple, as long as you are not exploiting bugs are hacking the game, it is fair. You may not like it, but it is how it is. If it is a big issue, reset and move to a newer server, otherwise suck it up and beat them at there own game.

    In real life armies do not hire mercs of their enemies to defeat a common enemy just so they can fight each other instead of fighting the one they gang up on.

    It's exploiting. You can try to argue for it as a legitimate tactic all you want but it is still exploiting. You are meant to fight for your guild, not join another for 1 battle then hop back into your own through no effort. It's a dirty tactic and frankly with some of the abuse going on and nothing being done so far to fix anything then the only way to win is to exploit back if your opponent does.

    Read what I posted above. We speak about a game. NOT a RL war situation.

    Id also like to clarify whether you just threatened my life.
