edit: post editted to add the accurate information, not the rumors going on in the forums
edit2: apparently the claims of turrets giving 500 valor were TRUE but was hot/stealth fixed ingame soon after it was found out. Spawncamping alts for valor is still valid and working as of now.
to bring up to speed those unaware: today's patch released with a gamebreaking problem in PvP
in all servers with large faction imbalances, a faction can get right inside an Ilum base and camp the spawnpoints for hours on end
Since there are no diminishing returns for player kills on top of the valor buff in Ilum, exploiters are getting up to 200 valor per kill, and net profits of well over 100k valor in short timeframes.
anyone from the opposing, outnumbered faction that tries to respawn in that point will be instagibbed by AOEs and unable to go anywhere else, hence their only choices are :
1) keep respawning and feeding the enemy,
2) be forced to log out their main to an alt/ the game.
more and more servers report that, even when the legit players stop respawning, people will just log alts in the enemy faction, travel to Ilum, and keep the respawning nonstop for ludicrous rewards.
as we speak this is still happening, despite the hundreds of threads about the issue plaguing the official forums. servers are still up and uncountable amounts of players keep abusing this freely.
now everyone is on the same page, what do you think that BioWare will do about it?
