Planning - 16

Thinking outside the normal context of MMORPGs helps a guild to overcome challenges they may face. While using a known exploit is inappropriate, using game mechanics to one’s advantage is always appropriate.

Players: A player who reports an exploit to the developers is a more trustworthy player than one who uses an exploit and keeps it to themselves or only tells a few others. Guilds should strive to maintain the high road and refuse to allow exploitation of bugs. Guilds that use exploits are frowned upon by developers and in some cases removed from the game.

Exploiting game mechanics that are common to all games (i.e. line of sight, high terrain) is not only acceptable but essential. One should always exploit game mechanics to create an advantage.
