Why are these exploits still around #2
 
First thread got deleted, posting a second thread with updated footage from today.

Videos showing the exploits in the game from the day I started to record them.

These exploits have existed since season 1, and has received no attention at all from the devs.

Please edit the thread if you must moderators, but please do not delete it until a developer responds with a solution.

AFk players from the same fleet from today (A fleet farming PVP matches for Dilithium together is a new low imo) Lol! A new way to pvp, Premadefarm!

AFKer that flies into a fight and AFKs. (Shows that he's not actually AFK, just trying to get himself killed)
And how to deal with them at 4:22

Not an exploit, but it is affecting the PVP community greatly. This bug has been around since season 4.

In the last video the two players in question normally get in there and contribute,:rolleyes: I would not say they are overly skilled PvP?ers but clearly you didn?t need them to win that 3v2 Santa!

Personally I haven?t had that many afk player problems recently however it should still be recognised as another issue to address sometime.

And very rarely do I get people logout out in front of me perhaps you need to kill them faster:D
but again still and issue.

Is that antimmater spread I see on your bug :P disgusting :P

Hmmm, I could have sworn I had a post in this thread....

I even remember it because I mentioned seeing afk'ers in fleet events and wondering why they're doing it because the marks are only turned in back to Cryptic. They I realized that maybe the farmers are going to build ready made starbases....

There is nothing you can do against logoffski, because whatever you do would also punish those who get accidentally disconnected.

Hardly, just make it so that there is a 10 second timer when you log-off, if you get damaged during this time it won't let you log-off. It's that simple. This kind of system is used in many other video games to great success. If you disconnect, you just get shot up and die. However, if someone joins the match before you log back in to replace you, they get your spot in the match and you are kicked out.

Actually, that sounds like an acceptable solution. It still punishes people who have a bad connection, but in a matter that is acceptable.

log off <25% come back dead. solved

or be REAL hardcore like EVE, your ship stays in that spot for 30 minutes till u log back in. where theres a will, theres a way. too bad this gaes devs have never had any will to improve pvp or eliminate the many exploits been around for years. i for one sayyyy

FOR SHAME!

The solution for people with a bad connection already exists in game. I'm just reminding you that it exists. It really isn't punishment.
