So… Show us the list that Funcom posts of known exploits that would be bannable offenses?
Without am official list, you can’t say X is an exploit. You may not like the action. It may seem cheap to you or underhanded, but unless it is clearly stated that it is an exploit, it’s not.
And here in lies the rub, it’s Funcom’s game. They are the ones who can say that foundation spamming is an exploit or that building a base in X location is am exploit, but they may not want to. They may prefer such things exist. It may be part of the challenge of this game that they want. They want us to build hard or impossible to raid bases. They may want us to claim territory ny structure spamming to make the game that much more challenging. And it could be their view that if you don’t like it, host and moderate your own server.
As for out-sourcing moderators… That does not seem like a good idea. I have seen mamy companies outsource their tech support and the support sucks. I personally would rather have a known lawless world to play in than one moderated by people hindered by a language barrier or are from some low-income area where the people are overworked, underpaid, and don’t actually care about the game, only wanting a paycheck.
