I remember they once said that farming was a completely legimate form of playing and that they had no intention of removing it as a viable playstyle.  However, this change seems rather punishing :S

In Topic: [Warning][Reddit] The Metrica Province JP Might Trigger a Ban

28 June 2013 - 06:46 AM

I am really looking forward to Anet's response to those people that were banned and recieved this reply upon their first appeal

"  We have complete confidence in our detection and in our decision to terminate the account. Therefore, we will not accept an appeal in relation to this account termination.  The decision to terminate the account is final. This decision has been thoroughly reviewed by our team, and we maintain absolute confidence in our conclusion.  The account will remain permanently closed and is not eligible for reactivation under any circumstances."

then the second appeal...
"I want you to know that we take great care when analyzing accounts prior to termination. NCsoft support staff is both diligent and conservative in determining which accounts are using these programs, and we only terminate an account only after we are able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that such use has occurred  As previously mentioned, we are confident that our detection systems are accurate. A review of the violation history confirms the account termination, and we will not entertain further discussion about this incident. Subsequent tickets will be closed without response."

Even though I haven't been affected by this SERIOUS issue, I am incredibly mad just reading the responses anet sent to the wrongfully banned people.  Now that we have context that those who were banned are more than likely innocent given Chris's admission of there being an issue, I don't ever want to deal with the support people at anet nor do I have confidence that my account won't be spontanously banned for an issue on THEIR end and be told   "You can't be innocent because we're NEVER wrong, NOW GET OUT."  Those heartless and condescending responses are absolutely infuriating.

On to Chris's reply though, I'm not sure if he had a role in the banning process or not, but his reply was devoid of any apology and him saying "Updates to follow regarding cause and some more juicy information" sounds like he's teasing those who are banned.  I honestly can't see any forthcoming information being "juicy" at all.

Yeah I've removed their names and just telling people I actually play with.

Won't be doing anymore fractals unless I'm the instance owner or a Guild only party.

Though there are certainly problems with naming and shaming on a public forum, I do sympathise with you if you spent that much time with the group only for them to say at the end just before completion, "OH LOOK, our guildie is online!  Sorry random pug who put up with us for an hour+, we gotta kick you so we can invite our guildie friend and give them easy credit at your expense!  NO HARD FEELINGS LOL.  BYE."

I've had that happen once, and the suggestions of adding them to your block list and stuff, that doesn't really punish them in anyway.  It should be a reportable offense with anet  then reviewing whether the party kicked you for right or wrong reasons.

Pretty excited about some of hese confirmations. Player housing and guild halls are great to hear about and Idk anout you all but the rez change to dungeons makes me think that raid-like content is coming ( not the gear hunt but rather larger groups and more strategy). Most importantly their stance on LFG is fantastic. Going beyond a simple list of others in the LFG is too much. Social interaction is best and I hope they stick to their guns with LFG going forward.

I believe they've already mentioned about how player housing and guildhalls were in their minds before.  Nothing new has been said about them in this PR session, they are still "not being actively worked on".  I'm sure people will continue to ask about them in future though, and the devs will continue to say the same thing, which in turn, will irritate people more.  I don't know what is a better response though, them saying "not being actively worked on", or saying that the scavenger hunt will be "epic" without actually elaborating anything.

Then they problem might actually lie with you. Not the game mode itself.

I have done (and completed it) 4 times since release. Each time with a different group.

Either you are extremely unlucky or you simply need to learn how to do it.

Though I won't say I'm the best or anything, I'm almost sure the problem doesn't lie with me since as you say, it is pretty easy at its core, and I tend to be one of those that will continue to the last dolyak, unlike most pugs I've tried to do it with.  Anyways, I just managed to get a good group, and while we didn't talk at all, everyone knew what they were doing so I managed to finish it losing only one dolyak.  I think you are just extremely lucky and I'm not.
