    Default Warfront Queue Exploiting

    Much to my disappointment, apparently the Warfront Q's are being exploited by the opposite factions to make thier way into enemy capital cities. AKA Q up for a WF, run into town, join the Warfront while in combat, come back INVULN for a few moments, repeat until they get to the "camp",(near the porticulus where players zone in flagged) gank a few people, poof away back into the WFs, rinse repeat. I sat and watched it go on for over an hour.

    Real cute guys.

    they need to put a timer, if you are engaged in pvp combat you have to wait til you are out of combat to zone into a WF.

    Not sure a combat flag would be enough, watched a ganker stay invuln long enough to join the WF again without dropping invuln/getting into combat. Couldn't even get him in combat before he poofed again.

    Not sure how this is since you actually have to untag yourself from PvP after a WF. You can't do damage to anything until you click off your INVUL at least thats how it works for me. I pop out of a WF i cant do damage to even a wardstone unless i click off my INVUL buff.

    I guess that would work on a high pop server, the average queue time for WFs is usually 10 to 15 minutes on my server. The pvp invulnerability only last 10 seconds or so.

    I'm 100% sure, I sat there and waited, his companion spawned in first, I knew he was coming. Got him on target, tried to attack, he was invuln, then poof gone again before I could land anything, AKA no consequence for waltzing right into enemy capital cities.

    He watched an enemy player appear, then disappear before his pvp invulnerability wore off, is all he was saying. Pretty fast queue times on whatever server he's on.

    So you have to position yourself in front of the enemy gates, join a WF, then as soon as you exit the WF run like a bat out of hell into the city while queuing up again, and hope that a queue will pop before your invuln wears off?

    I guess it could be considered an exploit since you will lose aggro from NPCs once you join the WF, and you can't be attacked because of the invulnerability buff.

    Maybe they should remove the invuln buff in capitol cities.

    That's exactly what's happening, I was just kinda suprised, and dropped in to mention it. I watched him move/gank/poof multiple times. Enough to know that 'hope' isn't part of the equation.

    Well you can't attack while the invulnerability buff is going, however you can just click it to remove it, gank someone, then enter a WF.

    They aren't invulnerable while attacking someone though, unless that was changed, you can't attack anything PvP related while that buff is going.

    He sure wasn't having any problems ganking a lowbie/an AFK'er or two right in the middle of town and poofing away again. Definetly seems like there's an adjustment that could be made there.

    Almost sounds like he did this, went into stealth and ran away. Or maybe he was using the porticulum? Is that possible?
