When is the point situation going to be addressed? It has spread to Atlantic

    I thought it was getting bad when someone posted a screenshot of collecting 15,000. Apparently there are now people running around with millions of points on Atlantic.

    Yeah. Something has to be done NOW. The ****ty programming is NOW affecting Link.. So NOW we have to do something about it. God forbid.. If this never affected Link it would not have been a problem..

    I did a topic about this issue a long time ago when it started on the Asian shards. It was only a matter of time before people started using it on Western shards.

    I guess someone was exaggerating when they said they had millions of points. The top point player has 60,000 on Atlantic now. If they wanted to start multiplying that it would be a very short time until a million.

    We seem to have curved the problem on Legends, one faction moves to another faction that removed about 20 million points from the shard, then the people in the faction they joined went to another faction and that faction in turn went to another faction and all the point got removed aside from the minax faction and I guess it's just filled with point holders :/

    I really don't even get why people farm points so high damn. I understand farming a couple thousand to supply guildies and friends.. But wtf?

    just wipe the points to 0 on all the shards, that will give them time to fix it

    I caught the point virus last night. 1.9 mill from one person on Great Lakes. To think last week I was concerned on how I would be able to wear the faction artifacts that I wanted with only being able to play once a week.

    Which will be hillarious when someone comes in this post and say I got blah blah points from 1 person on GL which in turn was you and the person you gt 1.9 mil from got proabably 300mil from another. Lol it's a never ending circle. Just remove point requirements on faction items and there will never be a peep again about points.

    I killed OJ Simpson from BOA and ended up with 14 million points with the point bonus. Just rediculous.

    If they do anything the first thing should be to clean the slate and drop the bonuses. The bonus idea was an epic fail.

    Unfortunately as the caller and set-up guy I never get the kill shots, so I'm rollin deep with 300 on all my PvPers.

    All my guildies are up to a million points or more from killing some of these chumps on GL who farm, or who have killed farmers.

    Yes, I don't quite understand the point in accruing a billion points. I mean I played my archer and lost 2m points the other night. It bothers me more that I lose my pots etc than my points. can't wait till they wipe them out.
