TERA‘s long awaited Vanarch system was released in the US recently and it hasn’t taken one industrious group of players long to figure out how to take advantage of it.
According to a very lengthy thread on the TERA forums, larger guilds are separating into smaller guilds and trading kills in order to feed points and win a zone — as well as take advantage of all the perks that go along with that.
Needless to say, TERA‘s player base is less than happy with the situation. Still, according to a screencap of a players chat with a GM, the tactic may be an exploit but it’s not against the ToS. In fact, the GM states that until the system is changed, this will just continue to happen, so at present there is no action being taken against the players.
To further complicate matters, at one point one of the GM’s began muting players in chat and is reported to have sent them the following message:
Some of the muting may have been in response to players spamming the channel and baiting the GM’s.
While I can understand the frustration and angst from both sides. I feel that at this point, everyone needs to take a deep breath, count to ten and calm down a little.
