Guild Wars Exploit
This week on Tarlach we ran into an exploit that can be used in guild wars that makes recruiting players and having a fair competition not really possible. One of the enemy guilds tried to join our guild with an alt pretending to be a newer player. In guild wars, at exactly 8pm EST on saturday and sunday, you talk to duncan to create a party of 20 which your guild can join and then you enter. The problem with this is that ANYONE of ANY RANK in the guild can do this. That means that if a random lvl 100 or 1000 who isn't meant to be doing guild wars opens the party, they can enter instantly without their guild joining. The first person to make the party is the leader, not the guild leader or officer. They can even LEAVE or just NOT ENTER at all and no one else in the guild can do anything about it. They can even do this on another channel away from the rest of the guild and run off with it.
So when an enemy guild that wasn't willing to try to win fairly started attempting to use this exploit to force themselves to win it makes enjoying the content and having a good competition impossible. Furthermore it makes any guild interested in competing really afraid to take any new recruits, because any new player might be an alt or someone who is working for another guild. I think this is a major oversight by Nexon and should be patched out. I think only SENIOR MEMBERS and above should be capable of creating or managing the party, and that the party should be passed to the guild leader or officer if they join optimally. Having a brand new fresh recruit able to completely destroy the integrity of the competition makes every new recruit seem like a possible Trojan horse.
I think people should submit tickets to Nexon to have this patched or it will plague every server before long and create unhealthy competition. Simply making it so only senior members or above can create the party leaves enough members capable of starting it should the leader/officer be absent, but it ALSO gives an actual meaning to the otherwise meaningless roles within a guild.
