So it has become apparent that on many servers people have decided to form two guilds and feed each other 600 points daily.

Currently on Valley of Titans we have Bloodline and Tsunami (a guild that has split in half and created an alt guild called Tsunami). They have been feeding each other points since 6pm PDT and are now leading two of the highest earning zones in the game (Zulfikar and Kanstria).

Our question to EME is how could you let such a large loop hole go and what do you plan on doing to resolve the issue?

Here is the link to the VoT subforum thread:

A large portion of the PvP community saw this GvG vanarch as the "make or break" point for Tera. I can assure you that if this problem is not looked at and these guilds are not reprimanded that you will lose a lot of subs.

Thanks.

Pretty sure there is another guild kill feeding on the Arun continent. 2 guilds with less than 5 praise. 1 is in 1st place over many other larger guilds. Thats 3 vanarch seats stolen by kill feeding. Hopefully this gets fixed, because if not its one of teras main draw(vanarch system) being made a mockery of.

CueBall .: Bloodline, and Tsunami

GM St.John: Let me see if it is a strategy that can be used.

CueBall .: They entered an alt guild, to feed. It's intentional.

GM St.John: I did go over this issue with someone from that team and you can feed kills.

CueBall .: that IS allowed?

GM St.John: Yes

This has got to be a joke. Seriously.

I'm not in any guild running for vanarch but my two cents... if you see them kill trading then join the fray.
Also to the perpetrating guilds... you can't be proud of virtual swag if you cheat for it.

Trading 600 kills a day is beyond boring not to mention a blatant abuse of an exploit. We will not be doing it. Because this loophole exists EME needs to take action and fix it.

I never agree with Aphotic, but this needs to be addressed. We had voting blocs, which was fine because that happens in normal elections too. People make alliances and such. But this win trading was also what got the original Battlegrounds in K-Tera removed. This undermines the integrity of vanarchy, when you see a guy who got the position, you don't think "Wow that guy must have won it through PvPing well" you think "wow, that guy is a dirty cheater".

But we also all told EME that this would happen. The GvG would be exploited, it needs to be a bannable offense for this, or a new system needs to be in place.

EME needs to get off there asses and fix this obvious exploit. Reset the entire election and remove this retarded GvG tournament. Than take appropriate action against guilds abusing this. Over 3 legitimate Vanarch seats have been stole because of this bug.

I'd rather wait till QoA2 than deal with this obvious exploit.
