Before the GM's get involved or any drama starts I'd just like to state that Mayore is a former member of One Spot so may be wanting to get revenge on his old guild. I didn't even know that he had left/been kicked. What happened? ;_;

That said, I remember in the past when people would report other guilds for GY farming, Either Henhouse or other people said that the rule only applied if it was Passion or ROFLCOPTER doing it. If it's not allowed then I'm sure the guild will listen and change their ways. We certainly don't farm like those guilds did, we mostly just try to win the BG's.

Actually it's only if FAK or Ezatt specifically does it.

Furthermore in regards to WSG: most of the farming is done due to the LoS up-the-hill bug. I think I'm going to relocate the graveyards in WSG... I know that sounds crazy, but only like 20 yards away, and further back from the hill. I feel it'll prove to be a good was to circumvent the farming.

I fucking hate how you need to modify bg's just so that people stop farming kills and I regret starting this trend =/.

Wait... really? I mean, it's been so long since I played WSG on retail. Last I set foot in it was cataclysm, and they LOWERED the graveyard height, so you're forced to hop down instead of running back into your base--ruining the battleground.

That is some relief if this is not a problem with our map system then. I do think moving the graves back would provide a more viable solution. It's the only solution that I feel comfortable with, without drastically changing the BG.

Lol, if you look at LFG in the pictures there's some idiot threatening the server with what I assume is DDoS ("get ready for some cool perma DCs [what?]")

Maybe it would be easier to build a little stone wall around the GY like the one in the centre of Azshara Crater? It breaks LOS pretty effectively. It could be sunk into the ground terrain to give more extensive protection.

Eh, it really isn't a problem unless it's a premade. Make it a clear rule that you're not allowed to graveyard farm and people will stop. Moving the graveyard is a drastic move and takes away from the TBC experience. I will inform the guild not to do this again. Certainly in other BG's however I think it's part of playing the game, keeping them from capping bases in EOTS/AB is part of a common strategy.
