Most, if not all, the freeps have lost complete faith in and respect for all the "creeps" - quotes because yeah, you're not creeps anymore - who fight alongside the 7 boxing, FCing BA. FCing proof - no BAs one day, the next, 7 r10 BAs come out at the same time all being controlled by 1 person. The fact no one ever saw or heard of any of them previously...yeah, it's really simple...he/she cheats. Turbine isn't acknowledging the FACT he farmed his rank and uses a third party (3rd Party) program to control them... Yet, there used to be the time when no one would fight alongside such a player. Now, not only do you fight along side him, you all make excuses, "Well, he followed us..." yeah, not a good excuse. Let him die and then fight us, fair. People who support cheaters...yeah, you should know where that goes. This guy can basically one shot almost every toon in the moors with 7 VTs...seriously, do you not understand the impact he has on the Moors? This has nothing to do with my pixels dying in the Moors either, so don't go there and say oh he's mad because he died in the Moors, no, furthest thing from the truth, I don't care about that, that's the game; this person isn't the game.
Not to mention the fact that time and again we, the players, who pay to play, at times even if we can't afford it because we love the game, have to put up with Turbine not interpreting their own "rules" correctly.
1. While participating in the Game or on the Game Website you must respect the rights of others to play and enjoy the Game world as intended by Turbine. - Are you seriously telling me Turbine that you had intended that it was ok to have 1 person running around controlling 2 or more toons with a third party program and farming himself to get the rank to do this?
4. While playing the Game or participating in related services, you may not exhibit or partake in behavior that is disruptive to the Game’s normal playability, causes grief or alarm to other players, or degrades the service performance or other players’ client software (for example, deliberately using game bugs or loopholes to disrupt the game or dropping excessive items). - This behaviour is NOT disruptive to the game's normal playability?! It obviously causes grief to other players...
18. You may not create, post, use or distribute any utilities, emulators or other third party software tools without the express written permission of Turbine (including, without limitation, macroing programs, botting programs, server emulators, client hacks, map hacks, and data gathering utilities).

For some time now, the Customer Service team has been reading your comments and thoughts regarding “rank farming’. Together with the Developers, Community team, and players council we have come up with a clear, official definition and policy regarding “rank farming” in the Ettenmoors.
“Rank Farming” is officially defined as the intentional surrender of your character to an enemy; resulting in a purposeful defeat and a gain of Infamy or renown to increase rank. Rank Farming is specific to Ettenmoors PvMP (Freep vs. Monster Player). The enemy can be controlled by any player - either the same player controlling the surrendering character, or someone else.
Participation in Rank Farming is an abuse of our game mechanics, and against our rules.
Turbine denial of facts and allow something this heinous to occur and keep occurring after many, many reports...just ridiculous.
Flame if you want, troll if you want, don't care, not answering any post, I have said my piece and am done...if I get banned for truth so be it.
