PostSubject: Ammo Droid glitch   Tue Jun 22, 2010 5:21 pm


Funny thing happened the other day in the Arena.
It was Tantive IV and the server was close to full but NO ONE had a headset until a player named "Will Smith" joined.


We were talking about the Arena, how I'm an admin, booting glitchers, yada, yada, yada.
He asks me if being inside the ammo droid is cheating. You know where you destroy the ammo droid, then get ontop of it and repair it so you end up inside of it.
I told him don't worry about it. I've already thought about that and it's not really cheating cuzz I can still blow up the ammo droid to get to him.

We were on different teams so I couldn't see what he was doing but I'm guessing he was just sitting in his own base inside the ammo droid. scratch
Then, I noticed that a couple of other admins joined the server.
So, Big Willy tells me "hey, there's Apocalypse guys in here blowing up the ammo droid and shooting at me!"
I told him that those were some other admins and they probably don't want you inside the ammo droid.
Then I hear, "Oh I just got boo...."
Then it flashed up on the screen "Will Smith booted for glitching" Laughing

He rejoined and as soon as I heard his headset again I just started laughing, "I guess the other admins really don't want you inside the ammo droid! hahaha"



So, what do you guys think?

lol! i have come across this before lol
chaos gammer aka vash lol thats the first time i played with vash and he was doing it on tantive4 in the side room ammo droid on the old official, we where on different teams he didnt shoot at me so i got my ammo and health and left i might of even of came back for more thx vash lol

tough call, in the arena it hardly every happens but i do 1 of 2 things.

if the player is giving ammo to everyone on both sides and not shooting at anyone then i let him live and stay in.

but if he is giving packs out for his side only and using the droid for cover and shooting at players then i kill him and then boot them hehe.

let me know if i should change my policy hehe

It flat out is cheating regardless of if the player is giving out health to both teams. There are strategic reasons to blow up ammo droids, especially on Tantive IV and Death Star. You have to destroy the one by the three doors or your team will get slaughtered with mines and on Death Star, blowing the one before you cross the bridge going to the Empire base is the whole key to controlling that board. I would hate to fight through a garrison of troops to blow it up just to have someone sitting inside of it keeping it in tact.

I would not ban someone for doing it, but I would boot them. If you want to give out health to both teams, run around with your fusion cutter and hand it out.

It is cheating if you use a map exploit or glitch to gain an advantage for yourself or your team. I do the same thing that Legend does when he blows up strategic ammo droids. If you are using a map exploit or glitch to prevent that from happening, it is cheating.

It does give you an advantage. That is why people do it! If there were no advantage then why would we be talking about it here?

Technically it qualifies as a glitch, but it offers no tactical advantage so who really cares. It is funny though.

The advantage is you have to blow it up before you can get to the person

True, I overlooked the kill count. I was only considering that it offers little or no tactical advantage toward achieving the game objective. You cannot score a goal while in the glitch and on the few maps where you could capture a command post you can still manage to eventually flush the glicther out and kill them.

As I said, technically I think this qualifies as a glitch. Since, as you pointed out, this does give the glitcher an opportunity to disrupt gameplay, the question I have is this: will Arena leave it up to the discretion of the individual admins if this is a banable offense or will there be server-wide policy posted if this is a banable offense? It can be confusing if you allow one player to get away with it and ban another player who simply follows that example. A lot of gray areas there.

I don't do it in Arena, so I'm good either way.

It's a glitch, you obviously were not meant to gain a shield by having ammo droid armor. This makes a person almost impossible to kill by yourself. All you have to do when your in the droid is to keep healing it. This is an easy way to gain +4 points over and over again on Tantive lV. It gives you an easier way to gain points/kills and was not suppose to happen, which in turn makes it glitching.

That is just like saying "just kill the glitcher" it's your own problem if you can't.

How easy it is to kill a glitcher has nothing to do with it. If you glitch you will get booted/banned. Its as simple as that.

its not easy with a rocket or any weapon for that matter first you have to destroy the droid then you have to reload and shoot again and that still gives them the chance to kill you or repair the droid fast while healing themselves and get there shield so to speak back up.
just last night i had to boot someone from tantive4 they where on the empire in the droid in the escape bay helping the rebels. know that made it harder to stop there spawn camping so i booted him and like clockwork we beet them back from that area.

dude its so simple lol 1st throw a gernade then immediately shoot ur rocket when it explodes if ur a grunt then just use ur rifle and engy shot gun when the engy takes damage he cant heal himself cuz he'd have to leave the box to do that also the box doesnt cover the entire body there usually a body part pokein out somwhere just target that and ur sure to get him lol an even easier way is to grab a buddy and both try to kill him lol nearly impossible to stay alive around more then 2 when u work together course if he was givin health and ammo to every1 it seems like itd b wiser to use him and stay healthy rather then to get 2 points off of him lol

The point is no matter how easy it is to destroy the droid and kill the guy you should not have to go that extra step just to kill them.
it takes a little longer along with more ammo used and you also have to watch out for other enemies at the same time while dealing with the player in the droid.
i use to not really care but after yesterday i seen that it does effect the team!
example if a player from your team is in a droid helping the other side thats an advantage for the other team which makes them a traitor. for two reasons your helping them gain an advantage in a location while supplying the enemy with fresh health and ammo, and you take away a player spot from your team that could be used helping your side out in the action. so now im booting them all and if i feel like it maybe a 10 min ban.

I have been saying the same thing as grizz the whole thread! The fact that you have to blow the droid up first gives the glitcher an advantages. How easy it is to kill a glitcher has nothing to do with it! It could just as easul be argued that you can go into the wall yourself to kill a glitcher on death star. The point is you should not have to do that! Play the game the right way!
