So count ins are ok? I mean, they aren't explicitly disallowed... Load up your mauses and meet me in A1 chaps.

 

Platoons are allowed for this contest. It's not like they'll deal the damage for you.:tongue:

 

But of course, obvious cheating will result in disqualification from the contest. You'll basically be setting yourself up for a ban since you're supplying the replay.

What excludes you from platooning, and getting platoonmates to help you ? Since its not stated in the event rules that platooning is disallowed.

Also, how do you get the most damage, by having platoon mates helping you  ? You still need to shoot at targets, and do damage, you can't just killsteal.

The only way is by having your toon mates keep the targets busy, so you can get shots at the target, while they try to deal with your toon mates. Thats not rigging a contest. Thats utilizing your toonmates as bait. Which is good team play.


 

 

Where is it good teamplay to let an enemy shoot you up without shooting back so a "mate" can get all the damage? My point is until comps like these dis-allow platooned results you will leave it open to dodgy dealings via creative means. Not being platooned would actually raise the difficulty of these "missions" and actually give some meaning to the results, instead of being a "who can be the most creative in maximising the desired result" comp.

Out of curiosity, in an event called the Tier X Experience... why didn't WG use ... experience as the measure?

Both my toon mates forgot to load ammo. I swear.

I could supply numerous replays of illegal, unsportsmanlike etc. behaviours. Can you ban all those people too? Or is it only for contest replays?

Dodgy dealings tend to be exposed. And as stated above, WG (and Elphaba) has the prerogative of excluding an entry to the contest, in those cases. Since the replay must be submitted, and those replays get reviewed for the contest in case a person places as a potential recipient for a prize.


I see no problem. But then again, I am mainly a "glass is half full" type of person, and occasionally a "fill the damn glass up, will ya" person. Never a "glass is half empty" person.

Its pretty hard to tell if another player is shooting or not unless in close proximity. I'm just jaded after seeing these kinds of events time and again being rorted by less than honorable platoons.

I report them via the Unsportsmanlike Conduct button most times. Placebo is sometimes as good a medicine as i can be bothered with.

 

If support returned the ticket with a response like, 'Yes, that player has been banned for a month', then i'd consider it. As is, the feeling among most is that it isn't worth the effort, and most times one suspects nothing is done anyway.

 

Anyway, we digress. Good luck to all the damage whores out there. If you beat that 9k you'll deserve every ounce of gold you get.
