Dear Slagpit,

Could you please answer why the team based servers are excluded from this? (FFA, Team and Alliance)


LoL - war is war.

Mr. Rd - aka gains wants game staff to stop people from conducting war! How the mighty have fallen.

Edit for clarity: *war on team based servers


I have no problems with wars, it brings activity back to the server when you have a proper war/grudge.

I was more wondering about people bringing things from alliance server to FFA.
Example: req got upset I won over him in most missiles sent.
He knows I run some countries netting away in ffa and go find me there and AB me. Telling me I should just give up cause he will continue this until I quit producing missiles on the alliance server

His buddies finds me in the team server and req gets all happy when they ab me there as well.


I'm surprised someone legitimately thinks this is a situation worthy of game staff involvement.

Is cross server griefing not one of the explicitly listed reasons for applying military sanctions??

My current thinking is for the clan-based servers to offer various degrees of protection: Team protects you from unwanted wars entirely, Alliance might have some restrictions on early wars, blindside wars, and untaggeds, and FFA would have basically no restrictions. FFA would be the place to go if you want politics decided entirely by the players. That type of experience may not be what everyone is looking for.

It ended up being a possible occasional result of the change that I'm sure was attractive to the small handful of players that have made repeat complaints on the forums, but I think the bigger issue being addressed was assumed cross-server cooperative play, especially when it was purposefully destructive.

Personally, I dont really recognize this idea of "griefing" for a couple reasons.

I'm convinced that a vocal minority of players won't be happy until it's just players vs. bots.

Let's make a PvE server where you can only attack bots and move on.

Sorry. Hate when they bash a mod that hasnt done anything when we have had worse which get passes.

Having this on solo servers is a great tool. Politics from alliance type servers should never spill over to a solo server. Creates a bad atmosphere.
