    Hi Jeremy,

    Some guild in Formosa is using this exploit to take advantage.

    This is super harrassment using game mechanics and blocking players normal gameplay. I hope this action is taken immediately.

    I am ZERO guild in TB and commanding lord Yahan [TB]

    I will gladly log on my character in UO to meet with any GMs for giving more evidence on this.

    Please help. Thanks.

    High five to you sir.

    Does it still need to be posted for those that didn't figure it out?

    I think you are wrong sir. This is not an idea. This is clearly an exploit or grief.

    This is breaking the UO rules thus should be taken action immediately.

    Exactly why you should take the proper avenues to report bugs. It is listed on uoherald.com. What you are in effect doing here is publishing a bug for anyone who may not know how to do it.

    In which case your post violates the Stratics ROC.... posting an exploit.

    :coco: :loser:
     
  8. An exploit is kinda an exploit it takes away from any chance of balance everytime something like this happens.

    Oh. So I should just let it happens to my guild and the whole true TB and not mention about this at all?

    Then how will we game masters deal with this unfair issue then?

    Just "glup" and let it be?

    Dont be stupid dude. I have mentioned my character name and guild and all information here to Jeremy to help us take actions on the EXPLOIT user.

    I am not giving an exploit on purpose here.... please if you are not helping... just shut up and dont talk... alright?

    Dont act smart here.. you are not smart at all by doing this.

    And I ask you another question:-

    What if you plan on guarding sigils? And find that you cannot place any traps because the losers are doing this kind of thing to you??

    Hmm.. what would I do? I would go to uoherald.com and send the bug in like a normal person.

    I would then get on my character with detect hidden and scout the towns if it was THAT important that I needed traps.

    What would you do?

    I dont want garbages like you to reply. I want important people to help solving this issues immediately as we want to guard sigils fairly.

    That's all I want.

    Slayer, check your messages. I just sent you a list of places you may want to check.

    Forgot to add: This is not an exploit. It's just kinda annoying and part of the challenge of factions. Just wait until someone puts them in a place you can see but can't get to. Been there, done that and all you can do is laugh it off (or shrug it off if you can't laugh just yet) when it happens to you.

    And by the way, EA gave us a fix this year for the situation when they made it possible for CL's to remove the traps, if they can find them. There isn't much they can do about infiltrators. It's up to you to shoot them, sometimes repeatedly, and risk taking murder counts if it's that big of an issue for you.

    Good luck and don't give up.

    Wow, get a char with DETECT hidden and scout the towns..

    By the way, I did.

    I even joined another account in other faction with 100 detect hidden, just to do this job.. but I must say, I cannot find it still. Since you're so good at it. How about you come over to Formosa and do this job? YOU TRY IT.. See if its possible to find it. dont be stupid again please. You are giving stupid idea.

    Yea, but again, have you answered my question?

    I am going to guard sigil.... you hear me?

    I send in bug report, need how many days for report back?

    HEY? Answer me?

    I dont wanna turn this into a flame war.

    If you're not helping, please leave and dont reply anymore.
     
  16. Actually, the others are right. You shouldn't be posting exploits here, regardless of what you want done about them. At the most, you should have sent an email to Jeremy, or possibly make a post stating that you know of a faction exploit and for her to contact you regarding it. Posting it for everyone to see just makes the matter that much worse, and does nothing but spread it to every player that didn't know about it before.

    Ok Connor, I have edited the message. May I know how I could do what you said just now? Because we are in a hurry.. so I hope we could contact someone who could handle this issues almost immediately.

    Thanks.
     
  18. Jeremy's email is jdalberg AT ea dot com. You can send her an email with the information about the exploit, and see if you can her assistance to get the traps removed. At the very least, she'll be able to take the info to the Devs so they can see if they can figure out a way to fix it and prevent it from happening in the future. Factions seem to be a focal point for them right now, so you might have timed this just right to get some quick attention.

    If you are talking about someone placing all your faction traps in an out of the way location, this is not an exploit. This is a tactic and you can counter it by searching for the traps. We did this all the time when Factions began. I can even remember one of the best spots that no one thinks to look.

    I is not think you is nice person of, to fun make someone's fort. Maybe he has tower or big castle, yes? ^_^

    Reminds me of another game when I can tell an NPC that her English sucks, and the NPC sprouts a sentence in Japanese and then bluntly asks me how's my Japanese. My only reply was "Ok, point taken". Pretty hilarious when I saw it :D

    The OP obviously is not a native English speaker but has gotten his message across clearly. That's pretty commendable.

    That said, the OP has already edited his post, even though I think it's not an exploit (things that can get the exploiters banned).

    In this case, posting it will likely get it more attention, but unfortunately, the OP will ultimately still need to contact the GMs for an immediate solution.

    (immediate as in not needing to wait for the next patch cycle if the Devs think that this is a bug)
