I mean seriously…
All they have to do is have some guy with a fancy looking portrait and “DEVELOPER” or “I WORK FOR AGS” flag come in here and say:
“We are aware of the issue and we are working on a fix. We apologize for how this has negatively effected so many of our players”
The fact that they haven’t even bothered to type two sentences is pretty messed up. Are they just done with us now that they got their week of gaming journalist hacks vomiting articles all over the internet and can go back to daddy Bezos and say “Amazon is in the video games market now.”?
What’s funny is that one of the posts you’ve linked is of a corp that abused it heavily to take over an entire server getting “revenge” (Greythorne on Agartha was caught cheating and tried to distance themselves by accusing everyone else), they also heavily abused the faction mechanic by creating multiple corps in different factions and make invasions unplayable for anyone not in their group by exploiting the kick mechanism.
This is also happening on US East Blefuscu. I have a vod of our most recent war where we were defending BrightWood. All they had to do was spam down ice gauntlet aoe at the same time.
Here’s the vod: https://youtu.be/lxHLAcBh2Co
@NW_Mugsy Is there anything you can do to make sure this Ice Gauntlet abuse is prioritized? We want to push for more territory but are concerned about bug abusers. We refuse to use ice gauntlets in an abusive manner as a company. So we no longer participate in pushing for more territories just to kinda stay off the radar of the bug abusers.
The game is no longer enjoyable if everything we invest, can be easily taken by bug abusers without a fair chance at winning.
calling this an exploit is stupid. This is just really bad server performance and is no one’s “fault”. What do you expect the other team to do? quit? not use abilities? not send their players to fight? Servers just clearly cant handle the 50v50 territory wars, whether its the abilities going off, too many players in one area, whatever.
When the game first released we had a couple of wars where there was hardly any lag AT ALL. It was fair, there was a bit of screen lag due to how much was going on, but people were moving, people were dieing etc.
Now the past couple of wars have been lag central. People stood still in the point, not moving and unable to be killed.
I’m thinking you’re one of people exploiting the bug that’s being posted EVERYWHERE!!
Many people have tested it extensively… The Ice Gaunlet lag I can accept being server fault or code but the Window mode god mode is clearly an exploit and destroying the war side of the game.
This is currently being abused on Ferri heavily now, a combination of using the ground aoe and changing their clients to windowed mode to make them invulunerable/unable to hit. It causes wars to change faction in matter of 3-8mins. This is MAJOR problem that needs hotfix.
I won’t be participating in wars until it is addressed.
