bug: getting around the vpr limit for econ clans (in General)

If you have a placeholder character in you will still get the forge bonus on your main (normally I wouldn't care but this particular case might affect my own rewards).


(notice titan and tootsie pop).

I was just hoping we could all join one clan so forgers all get 15% bonus. Seems fair.

I dont think either of their main characters get the forge bonus since they are not in the clan, but the main does contribute to the past 24 hours forging since it goes by account and not character.

Ive brought this up already, btw.

I just switched to a lesser character and it seems as if I still get the bonus.

DoS December 21 2010 2:01 PM EST

This annoys me because they have been getting a constant 15% bonus for at least the past month or two. Titan, when were we going to be informed with your proposition?

Would be nice if NS could look at this, as he never responded to my thread back in July!

And why exactly should an economic clan have any VPR limitations ?
For all I care, all forgers in the game could just as well join a single forging clan and happily sing kumbaya until the sun turns dark.

Sickone, if that were the case, then forgers should just get a 15% efficiency increase across the board. The intent was to add a hair of competition to forging. Though I'm not sure we have enough forgers for that to work.

Ditto to DG!

All we need is for the bonus to be only applied to the clan character. For the character in the clan, that is the only character contributing to the clans 24 hour forging.

Sickone December 22 2010 3:56 AM EST

As far as I can see it, the only actual "competition" is between being in a fighting clan and getting up to +20% fight rewards (5% just for fighting the clan target and 15% for being in the top clan), whereas the forgers get their bonus from just being in a non-fight clan, whichever that might be.
Whatever rankings each economic clan gets are basically just bragging rights, no ?
For all I care, you could just as well have non-fightclan characters get the forge bonus automatically instead.

small - what thread?

For the record, this is an exploit. Please stop.

Still have 2 members doing it.. =( Granted, they may not have room to get their main characters in Forgehood..

if you notice people taking advantage of this exploit, feel free to cm their names to an admin. ; )
