Sounds like a breach of tos rules. Using a glitch to take advantage of another player.

This is not for us (the players) to decide. Please simply collect evidence, document, and report to tech-support.

This looks a lot like shelling used to. It can result in account deletion .

Definitely against tos I really hope the people at perblue resolve this matter with the maximum punishment to those who abused the system if not I would like to get a name list of those willing to take some kind of strike action/ withdrawal of plat subscription so we do not pay rl money to fund this abuse/ billing tactics

end quote

The bolded texts is where I have a problem with being called "fuckstick" for one. But nobody cares about how I'm treated here so moving along from that now.

The underlined text is what (I think) you are accusing me of. These mostly depend on whether or not this is a bug. I acted under the assumption that the splash damage feature was intended to decrease survivability in a war zone, and if you are offline then you should not be able to respawn and be killed again, as another feature of parallel kingdom (I have heard stories of a time before that feature was added when you could find someone sleeping and kill them over and over with your weapon, I don't know if this is true, but just saying). His bubble was green he whole time, and before he 'logged out' he mentioned he was playing via remote connection to his PC through his iphone. He should have quit parallel kingdom before leaving. If he had went offline, like the game was made to do, we could have only killed him once and that would be that. Instead he chose to stay green in an active war zone, so I do not think this was a glitch. If per blue does decide this is a glitch or a bug they should update and remove it immediately. Until then, make sure you log out when you are done playing. Happy pk-ing

so you are admitting that you and spartan did what i said and you both knew he was not online/afk the fact of the matter is this his character after death will respawn if not logged off but once you respawn towers do not attack again till you move your character . so the only way he could lost all his backpacks and all his gear/mats would be for you two to abuse the system and force the tower to repeat attack him till he losses everything

Actually, I think the way towers operate was amended some time ago so that they DO attack enemies even if they don't move. I may be wrong... But I'm sure I read this and thought "oh sh...."
I'm a Druid - the fact that towers only attacked me if I was red or moved was important to how I operated in a war zone. I know that I considered how to change my "modus operandi" when near towers due to reading about this change. But I haven't been in a war situation where I have had to consider this, but I do know that enemies towers and golems attack me when I jump within range even if I don't move and am green, even outside a war zone. It's a case of "sh....." And jump away as fast as possible.

So the problem here is the fact that he was afk, but because he was still online he was killed again and again. Was this abuse of a glitch? Well.... I beg to differ. I am aware that enemies towers attack me when I'm online and with range - so I have disabled "run in background" to prevent this occurring.

I have noted however that when in Cerberus's chamber I seem to respawn and have occasionally logged back in to a pile of backpacks.....

you may want to go test this out again for yourself you do not get repeated attacks from a tower upon respawning unless you go agro or move within range of said tower what was done was 2 friends of each other mad each other enemies so there tower would hit the other and the afk player would be repeat attacked by the said tower that IS abuse of the game
