Ok...I died...but I saw something odd.  There were 4 tanks banging away at each other in the back of the map after the map was lost long ago.  Two on each side...but they were not killing each other.  They would trade damage and then go to the healing circle and heal...actually they were right beside it.  This was on C map.  Then I happened to look at them closer...same clan.  WAIT A MINUTE...THEY ARE IN TEAM CHAT!!!!!

 

Yep....sink dropping then working in conjunction to maximize damage....can you guess the end ranks?


 

GENERALS.


 

You know it had to happen but man that seems dull as hell.  And yes I have the replay saved.  And yes...it was one of those top clans.  But that just proves a point that maybe they do play a bit better and smarter.


 

Discuss.


 

Thank you for your consideration.

I don't know if sharing the link would be naming and shaming ...

 

 

But if you did happen to post the link showing your own gameplay and some other people happened to look around at other players and notice something, well, it happens.

Collusion is against the rules so submit a ticket with replay.

Sad thing is, it isn't THAT hard to get General by just playing according to the rules.

synch... not sink

 

Also, submit a ticket with the replay and telling what time in the replay this began... those guys should get a bit of a rude "reward" for their criminality.

Not that hard to get a General.....for you that is.  Others might see it differently, especially as battles seem to end up with few generals as it is, especially with all these fast matches.   I for one, have yet to make general though I've come close several times.

 

As to the original topic, it does suck that players are trying to game the system but there are always those in every community.  Hopefully the OP has a video replay to submit to Wargaming.

No it isn't. I haven't made General once in over 100 hours of playing. It is very hard.

I say good for them. This Grind isn't worth it. So glad someone is sticking it to them.

At first, I thought that the issue is not that big of an ish, but upon further review, I'm thinking that it may well be.

 

The behavior is clever but egregiously wrong. It is far outside of the bounds of being sportsmanlike. And it is definitely gaming the system.

 

They are, however, not directly hurting any fellow players (unless one believes that the primary goal in Frontlines is to successfully defend or destroy the Objectives instead of to rank up).

 

What they are doing is collusion. And although they are not negatively impacting fellow players, they are absolutely cheating WG out of the freebies and other benefits that WG rewards players for their presumed honest game play. Those freebies and other benefits have some level of dollar value because it would cost real money to purchase them, if it were possible to do so.

 

Meaning: they are committing a form of theft.

 

And now that the OP has brought this situation to light, other clan members will undoubtedly begin doing the same, if they have not already been doing so all along. And that could spread to the point where WG could eventually just pull the plug on the entire game, which negatively impacts the rest of us who play FL. 

 

So the question is, what to do about it?

You could report it as suggested by others here, and let WG deal with those involved.

You could do nothing more than what you have done (identified the issue here in the forum). And since all posts are monitored by WG staff, the moderator reading the initial post should pick up on the incident and forward the matter up the chain.

 

If WG deems that the matter is a rules infraction or presents itself as a potentially serious concern, they will take appropriate action. How? Perhaps by suspending or perma-banning the individuals identified in the battle, thus addressing the specific action- and/or by soliciting assistance from the general populace of users to provide them with downloads of similar actions, thus beginning to address the issue globally.

Were you around for the t22 fisaco?  WGNA basically did nothing with the players gaming the system... they all got to keep the tank.  It was brought to their attention and they let it continue.

So, first. Replay?  It isn't name and shame to post a replay afaik, as long as you don't name anyone in the replay in your post. If you're worried about it though, feel free to convo me in game(where there is no name and shame rule) with a link to the replay.  I'll take any risks associated with making it public on the forums.

Second:

I see the T-22 has already entered the conversation.  I suppose that incident is why I'm tempted to give you the benefit of the doubt for now.  Still want that replay, though.  It's the only way to be sure.

You nutshell one of the issues with this game. While many of us play fair and struggle to get better there are types like you that condone cheating in the name of "sticking it to them" because you have issues with WGing

You're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem with the game ... Don't be that guy ... Rise above ffs
