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!

Posted in PVE section, because this problem is rampant in PVE as well.

Maybe they're deleting it so that other players who weren;t aware of the exploits become aware of them and use them?

edit: As an aside, I;m seeing afk'ers who I;ve assumed to also be farmers in the events. Not sure what good that will do them as the fleet marks are not transferable and have to be returned back to Cryptic.

Unless they plan on selling ready made starbases....

Why delete it when you can just edit the revealing material out?

Read and critically analyze the post first before stating something so blatantly obvious, captain.

For the first video, the Starfleet Dental tag was a dead giveaway he would be doing something hes not supposed to. Only reason those people play the game is to harass/annoy/troll others.

Honestly, I see no reason for you to complain in this instance.

While I'm not a fan of log-off exploiters I couldn't help but notice that nice AMS console on your bugship. Seriously, do you need this stuff to win? Maybe your opponents got tired of being spammed with that P2W crap? Is it not bad enough that your bugship is far superior to anything your opponents were flying in that match? You're probably a very good pilot but it saddens me when people feel they need to use these things to win. That, ultimately, will hurt PvP more than anything you have described.

So ... you think that an aoe 5 sec sensor jam is a good enough excuse to start cheating? In cause you havent noticed, slotting a c-store console requires a console slot, the more they have, the easier they go poof.

Give it 5 more minutes or so and youll probably be on here saying that "OH MY GOD, you have mk 12 weapons, that TOTALLY justifies them exploiting bugs! How pathetic are you that you need that to win??!?! REAL men pvp with Mk I common plasma turrets."
