    i heard that ooc opened the aden castle doors and killed some bs by dragging them inside! and near rune, bs were defeated by the doors 2:0?!
    [scream of little pony]: it's a bug, all ooc clan will get a ban!
    sounds like communism, where you can get a ban for ideas.
    so if you have started this topic on hero chat, so at least try to prove it, that opening and closing castle doors is a bug, i'm really curious to hear any respond from gms.

    opening and closing doors during castle campaign

    it is possible since a few months, to use the castle's npc's to open and close the doors during castle campaigns, by the clan owning the castle.
    it has been like that since campaigns were introduced in the game.

    please check if it is a bug or not. thanks.

    regards,

    hello and thank you for the questions.

    the possibility to open/close castle doors during campaigns is not considered a bug and therefore will not be followed by any penalty. however, we would highly recommend you to refrain from abusing this feature due to a certain terrain imperfection, which may cause troubles such as getting stuck in environment textures etc.

    regards,

    in this case, please, direct your complaints to the support team with a videorecording (fraps, in-game capture etc. but not "replays") of the geodata bug abuse issue attached. screenshots and written complaints without any evidence provided are not sufficient.

    regards,

    so not a bug but a recommendation to not use it ?

    thanks, but as much as i can see, doing open and close often won't have any penalty involved, and that's the part we wanted to know. :)


    i guess we'll keep using that move... let's call it the 'gavin defense' :d

    i suppose, some clarification is required.

    although the ability to open/close the doors themselves is not a bug, this action may cause a terrain bug, which has been reported to be fixed. therefore purposefully opening/closing the doors to create this bug to disadvantage other players can lead to penalties being applied.

    in other words, when you open and close the door and someone gonna stuck in doors texture and have it recorded on fraps, you are screwed.

    you should prove that our intention is to stuck ppl in the door, since our intention is to break up your force, this is obvious since we use tanks to drag ppl inside and not in the middle of the door. if you get stuck while door closes it's your fault not the fault of whoever closes it.

    extra clarification:
    what if doors are opened with another purpose? ie, opening/closing doors every 20s with the purpose of dragging enemies inside with chain medusa/shadow snares, to isolate some enemies inside and kill them. even if you get stuck in the door you will be free again 3-5s later.

    do you consider this a valid tactic?
    what would you consider to be usages of opening door option that aren't according to rules.

    but you are warned that such action my cause "terrain bug", which is reported and to be fixed, so untill it's fixed, you may "unintentionally" abuse this bug.

    this bug is possible also in beleth, so i think gm should remove all beleth rings from server and stop it till they fix it.
