The Leader doing it along with another member, you can clearly see his fingers spamming the keys as he does it. - The only way Syndicate can win - Toonchie and GingCrusader - Exploiting - YouTube

Another member Suff doing it right infront of their leader “We dont use exploits”

This takes place after the war, they admit that they crouched “It was the crouching!”



Tons of people using this exploit in Outpost Rush. Also fire mage exploit is being used. Guy walking around shooting out fireballs like a machine gun


We are putting in a fix for the crouch issue tonight! Find more information about it here: [Restart] All Regions October 28th-October 29th, 2021

As for the fire mage exploit, if you’re talking about the dual-wielding fire staff/life staff/ etc., we have identified the issue that is causing this situation and the team has a fixed built. We are planning to release this fix with our next weekly update.


A whole weekend with players using this exploit seems a bit long. What is the official AGS response to people using these exploits to gain an advantage in territory wars, outpost rush, etc? Is this bannable?

Just looking for a solution because now I need to record every war and PVP battle to capture exploits. :weary:


Would like to know what you guys plan to do for us losing territory to these exploits and what we can do to make sure players are getting properly punished. We are scavenging our VoDs now to see who exactly was exploiting.


Are you going to be reverting the outcomes of these wars that were won due to exploiting?


So will anything be done about territories if they were all exposing a glitch? If they get to keep the territory that is not a fair judgement.


There’s a counter to this btw, crouching doesn’t only proc healing but also damage. So any damage skill that does consistent damage per second such as ice storm, poison arrow, bleeding, meteor rain will also get proc when crouching.


getting attacked by a light attack from fire staff like a machine gun is not fun.


We lost territories due to people on the opposing side, taking advantage of this exploit and it is incredibly unfair to players who are trying to play legitimately. I am sure many others including myself want to see action taken to revert these illicit plays.


Unfortunately counter or not doesn’t make it okay that its happening and the fact everyone is losing territory due to it.


Oh not saying it’s okay, I’m just telling people how to counter people who exploit using this


AGS should really disable wars and invasions right now because of this. It’s unfair gameplay.


So all of our gold, time, and effort in the 3 territories we just lost to exploits were for nothing? AGS please fix.

Our company had not lost a single war across 8 wars. Never had more than 2 objectives taken at one time. We got sweeped and lost in 6 minutes due to this exploit. Extremely aggravating and game breaking in my opinion. War results need to be reverted or affected companies greatly decompensated.


BUMP. Answer us Amazon.


they did lol

We asked them what they’re going to do past the hotfix. They’re not communicating past that.
