Truxa Posted April 24, 2014 Share Posted April 24, 2014 Hi! Last night I had a fierce discussion on TheMatrixRen server whilst being GDI on the "Walls: Flying" map. At that moment a few moderators were online and they were not on 1 page concerning a special tactic that can be regarded as bug abuse. Amongst them were Yosh (ingame) and Sean (on IRC). The problem: On either side of the wall, there is this ramp that is accessible from within the base, but not from outside the base (or shouldn't be) unless you drive a vehicle there with some infantry on top, jumping on that smaller wall section. Well the discussion was that Nod was able to do that several times unseen (by moving a stank with a few SBHs on top) and I was regarding that as bug/glitch abusing. Some of the players agreed with me, some did not. What I want to know is if the Devs think this is glitch/bug abusing or just an inventive tactic to reach into the enemy base. The counter agruement from some was that GDI was also able to do this, so it's not a bug or a glitch as both teams are able to do that. I feel the problem lies here: Nod can do it invisibly, forcing GDI to actively guarding 4!! base entrance area's rather than the 2 standard ones (tunnel and the mayor gate) to intercept the invisibles. GDI cannot do this invisibly, so Nod can simply report it to the team easily what the team is trying to do, so Nod has a more passive approach of defending the base compared to GDI. I feel that the difference in defensive measures are so much different, that it should be regarded as a bug/glitch abuse. Other counter arguement was (amongst others): SBHs get in the base through tunnels or main entrance anyway, so why bother dubbing this tactic as illegal? Just defend the buildings more properly by smart-mining. Yeah ... smart mining stops the multi-nuke-spam ... right When you have to guard 2 entrances against SBHs, it's way easier than to guard 4 entrances against SBHs ... I want to know what the Devs have to say about that tactic: Wall jumping using a vehicle. Intended or not? I want to know the general opinion of the community about this: Advanced tactic or glitch/bug abusing? Regards, Trux PS: Advanced tactic: 2 engineers standing on top of an orca repairing it while flying high above the ground. Glitch/bug or advanced tactic?
