On glitching through settlement walls

Postby dbltnk » 27 Jul 2016, 11:50

Hey everybody.

As many of you know, there are a number of abilities that currently allow you to teleport through city walls if used in a specific way. These abilities are bugged and will be fixed for the next alpha. They are obviously not intended to be used this way. And everybody who intentionally uses these abilities in this way will get warned and potentially banned.

But we are also getting a lot of false reports on people abusing this. So to make the different clear, here are two cases:

CASE A
1) Someone from clan A is using "Tumble" outside the walls.
2) ​Someone from clan B inside the walls hits that players (for example with splash damage).
​3) The first person gets teleported in through the doors / walls.
​That does NOT constitute bug using.

CASE B
1) Someone from clan A stand close to the wall with their back to it.
2) They hit someone else from clan A with "Emergency Rescue".
3) That person gets teleported in through the doors / walls.
This IS bug using and will be punished.

Why not take out emergency rescue for the remainder of alpha? Its a cool skill, but it'd be the easiest solution to ensure no one is abusing it and would clear up the conusion!

I had reported that too:

CASE C:

1) Someone from clan A stands with his back in a short distance away from the wall and is using "Escape Shot" outside the walls on a NPC/Enemy/Friend.
​2) The person gets teleported in through walls.

That is a variation of CASE B, you are right.
