    Rank Farming Banned...

    Finally, Turbine took a stand on rank farming...

    Hello, I’m River, Customer Service Manager at Turbine.

    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 Glory 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. Customer Service can identify this behavior and will take the appropriate action on both accounts involved, based on our findings. This activity can also be reported to the in-game staff for review.

    This policy is effective immediately and is *not retroactive*. We will not be taking action on previous potential violations. Any reports filed should be of actions witnessed after the publication of this policy.

    Please remember that we have multiple ways to verify players are participating in this behavior. Additionally, players who frequently report others falsely may also be subject to disciplinary action for harassment.

    About dang time. I'm stuck somewhere between "better late than never" and "way to close the barn door after the horse has left the stable." It will be interesting to see how they handle the consequences of those found to be farming rank from now on.

    Be interesting to see how it's applied and to whom. I can't wait for all the finger pointing to begin. I do like how they put in the line about people being disciplined for harrassment too although i'm sure the blowhards will blow.......hard.

    Key line here...

    So, in most cases, the barn door has been left open, those folks who farmed - got away with it...

    Let me get to it first before Nannu, Elda, Morkel, Asshsa, Rubble and someone so cute I can't even say his name and he wouldn't see it anyway because he's too busy with himself.

    All RKs will be reported immediately upon zoning into the moors for farming cause by the very nature of their class they are so op that them fighting anyone is considered farming, no one has a chance against them, it's unconditional surrender.


    There ya go, saved you the time.

    It's still a victory, however small. At least most of those who have farmed before are generally shunned by their community. I mean, it would have been nice to see something come of it - I'm sure there's plenty of us here with quite the number of telling screenshots/videos. But I'll take whatever we can get.

    If a creep is willing to sacrifice his/herself over and over again by jumping into the fiery pits of RK damage, are they not also contributing to the farm session?

    I intentionally surrender my character every time I run into a raid. Guess I can report it now and we will all get banned.
