    Default We Are The Suckers Who Played By The Rules

    Hi. Regular PvP player here who played every minute of every WF I've ever been in to grind to Rank 6 the hard way/

    Now, I am 160/405k away from Rank 7, while I see an endless parade of people who surpassed me in a weekend, never really played PvP, and are now Rank 8 with all the shiny Order of the Eye crystals and rep items.

    Me and a R6 guildie walked away this past weekend when we ran into fellow Guardians cooperating with a group of Defiants to exploit PvP rifts, because we didn't think it was right, and now we are the suckers who are still grinding our way slowly to R7 while people who don't even PvP are walking around in R8.

    I know you get lots of complaints, Trion, and the signal-to-noise ratio sucks, but this is a huge slap in the face to honest players and PvP regulars.

    The abuse is so rampant, we cannot even "play" a PvP rift the way it's supposed to be played, because the open rifts are all occupied by exploiters. No one even wants to PvP, they just want to grind their rep and get their free weapons, gear and synergy crystals without ever having to step into a WF.

    So you're going to look into it? How are you going to track down all of the thousands of players who have been exploiting? And what are you going to do to them? Are you going to take their gear away? Ban their accounts? Suspend them?

    This is incredibly disheartening. When me and my guildie friend happened on the exploiters for the first time, there was a player who was saying "lul i'm rank 4 already!" just by exploiting PvP rifts that night without setting foot in a WF.

    Yet if we had stayed and cheated like them, we'd be wearing shiny R8 gear right now. When you allow people to cheat with impunity, you cause irreparable damage to the PvP community.

    Signed,

    An "Undergeared" R6 PvP Player

    Default This exploit never occurred to me

    So this is a reason for slow warfront queues - people are exploitng pvp rifts. All weekend long I was in back to back Whitefalls with guildies grinding the prestige the old fashioned way. I barely did any pvp rifts - why??!!!

    I know of no guilds on Sunrest - either side - that were/are using this exploit. At least on my server open world pvp will be with other honest pvpers.

    I've been running into a player from Briarcliff who was Rank 7 less than a day after the patch hit and by the weekend was decked out in full R8, enjoying his free gear while doing nothing in WFs but spamming Tyranny as a Cabalist.

    There is no way this person did it legitimately, and I can't even fathom how Trion thinks it's acceptable for a person to be in full R8 days after the patch hit.

    I played lots of WFs on the amped-up favor weekend, ran lots of Whitefalls under the weekend rules, have 1.5 million lifetime favor, and I'm 160/405k. Again, a sucker for playing by the rules.

    Something needs to be done about this immediately

    Not all of that is true. I also didnt touch a PvP rift during the WF weekend, I was qing non stop @ 30s q times, playing 20/hrs a day and winning 90% of games. Im only 200k into r8 (I also have to work 8hrs a day).... But 2-3days after patch is not. Even winning 100% games for 72hrs with 4x bonus seems abit far out.

    Sorry, OP, not trying to derail the truth spoken in your post. <3

    As someone already pointed out it's important to note that not all rank 8 people abused the PvP rifts. Alot of us got loads of prestige during the whitefall weekend and only had very minor amounts left to grind when it ended.

    I know of a certain group of individuals on briarcliff who are coordinating their guardian-defiant PVP rift farming in the same vent. Legitimate attackers are rolled by the other side while the allied side just wait.

    Being able to roll chars on either side on the same server was such a dumb idea.

    How trion didn't see coordinated PVP rift farming coming boggles my mind.

    You don't need to be able to roll on both factions on the same server to do that. There is a server where I play Guardian and I've several friends who played Defiant. If I wanted to exploit, I could ask my buddies using vent or email or facebook, etc. The problem does not lie with being able to roll characters on both sides of the same server.

    Call it what you want but if people don't make a stink about it it won't get fixed. I'm paying for a game where people are abusing broken game mechanics. Call me a QQer if you want, doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    If Rift was a city, there would be a riot just now.
