    Hello, Reds/Greys are still getting guardwacked in VvV towns when the NPC guards walk into fields or are hit by area spells. The guards are wondering about in Moonglow, Minoc, and Skara Brae.

    If you had been saying you were a blue character trying to fish the shores of Britain bank, and a guard walked up to you said.."Vile fisherman, why art thou fishing on my shores?" *Thwak*! Then were guard whacked! You'd have a better response. They stopped caring about VvV the day after it came out!

    It's really sad and I fear it is one of the reasons we have so few reds on Siege, it really need a fix, when VvV battle town, guards should take a break.

    I complained about this day one, since most of my mages are red. Still no fix... months and months and months later.

    Maybe if I approached my complaint as a wandering noob red miner (red only for rp purposes only of course), who was killed by a guard walking into my field, that I only used to kill a earth elemental, that followed me for 8 screens because I am that weak. And well I died.. AND IT HAS RUINED MY GAMEPLAY!! And now I will quit for ever and ever and ever unless it gets fixed now!!

    Thats the proper way to complain about stuff now right?

    Sounds about right. It's one of those buggy things which makes me very adamant about not having VvV in Tram. There are WAY too many bugs to make you flag when you don't realize it or have no clue WTF you did to flag all the sudden and there are way too many ways to "trick" someone into flagging by exploiting it and there are FAR too many bugs to get you killed for no real reason.

    That bug would not effect Trammel as there won't be VvV battle towns in Trammel. Stop making every tread to a "don't put VvV in Trammel", this thread have nothing to do with VvV in Trammel !

    We've got a bug push in the works and hope to have issues such as this addressed then.

    I am still being guard wacked in the towns. Why are you still adding new content before bug fixing?

    While you're fixing bugs, can you fix classic client so that right mouse button is used only for walking / running? It's too easy to lose spell icons etc the way it is now. (Periodic complaint for years and years now.)
