So several times tonight I have seen the same player manage to squeeze his vehicle into buildings on the caps.  He is squeezing his ELC Even 90 into the buildings and with the Engineering skill the attacking team is unable to shoot him while he is inside the buildings and unable to capture the cap.  Please fix the game so this cant be done.  Please punish this exploiter.  Thank you.

 

 

PS- No Idea why it is "name shamming" to call out this person on the forums.  He is using an exploit to cheat.  At a minimum he should be name shammed lol.

Why punish a player who takes advantage of the map quirks? Because you didn't think of it first? Over the years many players have found quirks that they can use to their advantage until WG makes changes., Heck, WG does that for regular game mechanics. Look at TDs on Eherlenberg. That hill in the SW corner was a massive TD spotting point. In the HD rework they lowered the hill. Then they made the hill less wide - less cover. THEN they put a building in the way blocking line-of-sight. They say TDs are long range snipers but they have been doing everything possible to mitigate their one greatest ability.

Willy-Maybe I didn't explain it well enough.  He is not "taking advantage of map quirks".  He is inside buildings that do not have  an entrance or exit.  Its clearly an exploit.  If I did find out how he did it...I wouldn't do it....because it is clearly cheating.  This isn't even like the old climbing days on some of the maps with steep hills.  It is an exploit.   I will be curious how you feel about it when you run into a game with this guy lol.

 

 

Does anyone know the punishment for using exploits??  I am curious.  Thanks

Replay please.

 

It is not an exploit. An exploit would be a VK 100.01 fitting inside a building. :D

 

It sounds like someone found a tiny flaw between the visual model and the physics model, a hole just big enough for an ELC to fit through and he is using it.

 

It would need to be fixed, but if there is a flaw, blame WG. Don't blame the guy playing the game they gave us to play. As long as he isn't using some illegal mod, he is fine.

Dude, if you want it fixed, and I'm sure 90% of us do want it fixed, attach the replay to a ticket and submit a bug report.  Hell do it for a week straight and it will get fixed.  Putting it in the forums will do nothing.

Exploits shouldn't happen, but sadly they do.  A 24hr warning suspension ought to sort it out until WG gets it patched.

Whew I thought the ghost tanks were returning  There is also a spot along the railroad tracks that a 12T will fit inside one of the rail cars but you can't get out got caught there accidentally here while back.

this may have been an unmentioned fix in this morning's micropatch?

 

I never used the exploit (never occurred to me to look for such things)

 

this morning, I did happen to spawn C, so I went looking, and for the life of me couldn't get into any of the buildings near, or on F.

If they are loading up on engineering and then hoping to get defence on those maps then they are exploiting the game. It's allowing them to gain a ton of spotting XP and ranks in the game.

 

Players knowingly doing this should be banned from Frontlines and not be eligible for rewards.
