I’ll start by saying I do not exploit in anyway, the company that were running this war decided to do something that they have seen elsewhere where you throw aoes on b to attempt to lag the opponent enough to kill them on flag.
I was apart of said war but do not have the ice gauntlet which is supposedly the weapon that lags the servers.
If you watch the actual vod you will repeatedly hear me comment on my thoughts of the strategy and just defend as you are intended to do.
To the people that are reporting me for this I think you will find that I have no control on this and I do not wish to be associated with the company that set this up.

I can confirm this exploit, and it’s triggerabble intentionally with fire/ice staff. Get all your guys on the point while attacking and freeze everyone’s clients so you can take the point without contest. We just lost our territory to this exploit.

Wars are unplayable right now. This is a must fix immediately issue.

Lag seems to be based on Entomb.

Server: Heliopolis
Time: 8pm-8:30

Here’s a video of the exploit (I’m not sure when this was done, this wasn’t tonight)
