    On LS, TB has placed tons of candelbras to block everysingle tile in the first room of the castle. These candelbras are stacked with multiples in each tile. If this isnt illegal is should be, Take a look!

    And this is all the candelbras from the first 2 tile, remember there are atleast 25 tiles still stacked like this.

    "What are the rules regarding blocking off areas in faction warfare?"

    There are a couple of different possible cases - here is the breakdown:

    Faction Vendors: There MUST be a path between or around them. If there is not, the GMs will take action.
    In A Faction City (but not in the stronghold): If there are items placed in such a way that other players can't move them easily (many many candelabras on one tile, for example) the GMs will take action.
    In A Faction Stronghold: Anything goes.
    If the GMs are forced to take action in any case, they will delete the items/vendors that are blocking a player's path. The faction signup stone is a good indication of where a faction stronghold begins. Keeping that in mind, any blocking that occurs outside of that area may warrant action

    I don't mind the idea of barricades; I do mind this. Normally, items stack on top of each other and can only be stacked so high. These items must be placed individually. However, smashing a crate can create a roadblock that completely avoids the limitations above.

    A little advanced planning for this stuff can make their efforts worthless.

    1. Go in adeah of time. Hide and logout. Then when they come along you log on the char and kill them from inside. Once they all dead they're trapped.

    2. use the candles to target your fields. Drop those deadly poisons and kill them down. Take in a steathler and start removing the candles. Dress him up in the virtue suite. Have healers and curer's keep him alive as he pulls the trash out. It's a defensive position. It's supposed to take 10-1 to dig them out.

    E
     
  8. The problem with that is you don't know exactly which base to log out at since you never know who is going to steal the sigils.
    Second part sounds easy but after picking up all the candles they run in with another box full, chop the box and run back out then back to picking up again, it is pointless.. We know they are threatened by us since we walked in lastnight and swept up the floor with them but this is a little extreme. Something should definatly be done about items stacking like this on the ground.

    If you have 3-5 people all working together you can open a hole through the barricade in as little as one minute. In this case it seems to be doing its intended purpose: keeping lone stealthers from running in and out of the base.

    You USED to be able to rubberband through those =( Thanks EA, once again for screwing up spell casting. And that is another reason factions will always be dead. Factions should be about pvp, not picking up stupid candles and spending days drinking water barrels.
     
  13. You're complaining that they fixed an exploit like that?
