One or two people I know tried this early on and said that when the XP-on/off is toggled while queued, it auto-cancels the queue. That way, one is forced to requeue which would then put them in the proper bracket.
I’ll have to ask them to make sure I understood right.
UPDATE: This is indeed the case: while queued, toggling XP either way will auto cancel the queue.
I personally don’t feel it was naming or shaming. I brought the person in question I was referring to by linking their armory and showing that after several games with me they were not leveling by attaching screenshots with the post of them remaining the same level after several games.
Also, I agree, let’s not post HOW the exploit is done please. It’s been reported through a bug report and in game. Let’s not help the community any more by continued posting of the exploit.
So you linked to their armory and posted a screenshot too, in an attempt to show that they were not breaking any rules? Or was it because you were trying to provide proof (if you can even call it that) of the other player using an exploit?
While you might not agree, you did exactly what is considered naming and shaming.
You pretty much just defined naming and shaming, despite what your intentions behind it were.
I know it is frustrating, however in that particar instance the player was correct. I would hate to see you get forum vacation, lose the ability for trust level three, and have the penalty double for the next infraction while you felt justified in your actions.
Especially if what led to this is a player using an exploit in the first place. Unfortunately, two wrongs don’t make a right.
I think others have already answered this sufficiently but just to make it more official. If you believe someone is exploiting please use the Right Click for: Cheating option.
The /afk system is entirely different and as noted, won’t get those players looked at.
Simply linking an armory profile of players you believe to be exploiting would be considered harassment, as it falls under “naming and shaming” or “calling out”. Neither of which we allow on these forums.
If you were having a discussion with someone in a thread and included their armory profile, much depends on the context. If you are doing so to call them out, that tends to fall under harassment.
Additional in-game screenshots should be avoided as that starts to get back into harassment.
If you believe people are exploiting, and want to report the method on which they are attempting to do so, please submit a bug report and/or write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apologies for the need to edit my post. Was only trying to provide facts on the issue, since it had been inaccurate speculation, which seemed less useful. I’ll be careful to be less specific on the forums and use the hacks email in the future.
Hey Djarro, I also tested out what you mentioned above (pre-edit). Obviously, I don’t want to bring it back up here, but I can say that it doesn’t work either. Even under those conditions, the queue auto cancels.
