If any Blizzard people are awake, I’m currently sitting in an Isle of Conquest BG that I can’t leave without being punished with a deserter debuff where a griefing guild is live streaming their deliberate effort to make a battleground unplayable at the expense of other players. Can we get some action here? Shut the BG down? Get some bans going? Anything would be great. I wanted to put an in-game ticket but those apparently don’t exist anymore, so I’m trying the forums.
You will need to remove the guild name. Public call outs are not allowed on the forums.
Really nothing you can do via the forums to be honest. If you think they’re cheating/breaking the rules you need to submit a ticket.
Yes, in-game tickets are still there.
ESC - SUPPORT, then CONTACT SUPPORT in top menu row.
Customer support is here for a reason, Nephe.
I was in that match when it started, stuck around for a bit and they were griefing the entire Horde team by camping the graveyard and not actually finishing Isle of Conquest. I left, did some other stuff for a while, requeued for another battleground, and it placed me back in the same match. They are breaking the Horde epic battleground queue as well by constantly placing new players into a game that never ends.
The entire thing is also being streamed on their Twitch channel. Absolutely unacceptable.
Customer Support is not Customer Service. This forum is one for players to assist other players. It is not an intermediary to speak with a GM or a way to bypass the ticketing and reporting systems. In fact, there are no GMs on this forum, only our SFAs.
Call outs are against the rules, so the guild name needs to be removed.
This has already been brought up in other threads here though. You can right-click and report these people, but reports are not taken over this forum, or any forum.
of course they do.
…but a response is going to take a couple of days.
regardless, i’m not sure i see the issue.
if players aren’t coordinated enough to fight back, and they choose to keep resing, that’s on them.
walk away from the gy and stop respawning
eventually they’ll get as bored as everyone else and finish the game.
The issue is the endless reinforcements replenishment from the Quarry / Refinery, which the other team has their players on the Hordeside capture. People get demoralized and go ghost to try and get them to stop, and the reinforcements keep replenishing. Their most recent game ended with the highest honorable kill count at 857, in a battleground with a max of 400 reinforcements.
I fully understand your PoV here. However, there is no right way to play a BG.
If they want to farm kills at the graveyard, that is their prerogative. There are no set rules against this…
Thisnunfortunatelynis not a CS issue as had been pointed out. This is more. Adev issue.
Your post would be better off in the BG forum so some devs might see your concerns or in the in game suggestion. It sounds like you are looking for a fundamental change in the way the BG works. That is how you get your request seen.
May wish to read the sticky on top of the forum, namely Welcome to the Customer Support Forum!
Mainly this part here:
As a reminder, the Customer Support forum is not an alternative contact point for In-Game, Technical or Account Support. To request assistance, please contact our customer support staff directly through our Support Site
Oh I already went through all of this before, now it’s the OP’s turn. I’ve already utilized all of my means necessary to bring attention. You’re just gonna get spillover here because of people who are unaware of this section’s uses, like I was
Edited because I am not Gollum, and “sections’s” is a hilarious goof up
Still doesn’t hurt to point them in the right direction. More players more eyes so to speak.
Might have been yours I had in mind making last post haha.
You being stuck in IoC is a you issue because you don’t want the debuff. Which is faster - finishing the Battleground or waiting out the debuff?
You have the solution, you just don’t want to use it.
Unlikely to happen.
They aren’t breaking the rules, why would they be banned?
Leave the Battleground.
For what? They aren’t breaking the rules.
If it’s what I think it is, they can’t. They insta kill at the grave yard and take specific spots so they constantly gain resources and have 2 to 3 hour games by abusing it. They are in discord and coordinate in order to keep it locked down in such a way so they can honor farm without resistance.
thing is he can leave, wait for deserter to fall off, and que again to be thrown right back into the same BG he left before deserter.
or they could go merc mode, and that wouldn’t happen.
And Blizzard isn’t going to action accounts upon requests - one not wanting to use the things they have like leaving, using merc mode, etc, isn’t grounds to action other folks.
All good, people see customer support and probably immediately think of a phone call help center - I know I did. Leilleath helped me out tremendously to understand why I was wrong to post it here and guided me in the right direction, which is why she got a from me here for being awesome again!
For all those inquiring as to where you can voice your displeasure about the situation and more details as to what is going on, please go to Upcoming Changes to the Ashran, Isle of Conquest, and Wintergrasp Epic Battlegrounds - #166 by Warzug-mankrik .
If you don’t agree with what they are doing why are you promoting their activity by suggesting watching their stream?
It’s enough information to look them up. By giving that information you up their viewership.
That method hasn’t worked on reducing botting. Or any of the PvP activities that players don’t like.
Drop out of the Battleground. Go at another time. Use Mercenary-mode if it’s available. Blacklist IoC. There are lots of solutions. If you personally know when their stream happens, avoid that time-frame. Lots of ideas that don’t involve giving enough information without giving people enough information to Google them.
PvP solution to a PvP issue.
Why not just beat them and win the BG ?
