  3. Right! GOING there is not against the ToU. Using those items to move around the map is not against the ToU. But using those items to get you to a spot where you then engage in PVP and use that position to not be harmed, is considered safespotting.
  4. Excessive corpse camping can be actionable by a GM. We had it in our ToU up until 2 weeks ago - however its been removed since. TheFlame didn't do anything wrong in this scenario. TheFlame is one of our most active GMs, so it's not surprising that they are involved in both of these circumstances.
  5. It needs to be a fair position for both parties. Sitting in a spot where the person you're attacking cant get to you through normal jumping/movement is considered safe spotting. You're creating a "safe spot" where you cant be harmed in pvp. Cities should be a place where PVP is possible, but extremely difficult due to the guards. That is the intention of cities. If there are spots in cities where people are standing with the intention to PVP, and keep out of los/pathing/game mechanics of guards, then yes - its safespotting.
  6. I never said that in any way. Using it to position yourself in a way that cant be achieved through normal jumping in order to PVP in outposts/cities is safespotting.
  7. Alright so, I've spoken with TheFlame, as well as checked our logs to verify TheFlame's story and yours. This scenario started when a player reported you for safespotting, which is against our ToU. Our process in determining safespotting is to find out if the player is able to get to that point through normal jumping/movement. TheFlame chose to move you off of the building in order to determine whether or not you were indeed in a place you shouldn't have been. TheFlame didn't intentionally move you next to the warrior, but moved you off of the building. We have many ways we can interact with the world and players to determine if someone is breaking the Terms of Use, and I have given TheFlame my feedback on the situation. I find it silly that your "go to" is that there is some form of favoritism happening, and that automatically the GM is purposefully affecting PVP. That's not what's happened here. For future reference, our ToU states: Technically speaking if you're jumping from a mountain and using a parachute to obtain an advantageous position in order to PVP, that is safespotting. If you have any questions, feel free to post them. If anything happens again in the future and you'd like it to be looked into, I'm always on Discord. Rain
  8. Hi there. Thanks for the post - I'll look into this tonight and get back to you ASAP on my findings. Also - Adaperry - I have no idea what you're talking about. Only 2 GMs on staff are able to restore loot, and thats myself and my Assistant Lead, Trommel. If you'd like to give me some information as to what you're talking about, I can look into it for you.

  9. Banned, trying to figure out why

    No sir. We're currently tweaking our anticheat system and it's almost finalized. Unfortunately your case, and a few others, showed us a flaw in the system.

    Hi Sinister. I've unbanned you - it looks like this was a false positive on our end. Sorry about that. Rain

  15. Dear Community, As we celebrate everything we have accomplished this year, and look towards the bright and exciting future of 2018, we would like to thank all of our players for spending your gaming time with us. Your loyalty and commitment to the project, and each other, has made this year a spectacular one. We are truly grateful to be able to bring a stable Vanilla environment to so many people! With the exciting news of Classic Vanilla being launched by Blizzard (Soon™) – the future has never looked brighter for the WoW private server community. Finally, we’d like to thank all our dedicated staff for the countless hours they’ve spent volunteering on this project. You have all exceeded our expectations, and we are incredibly thankful for your time and support this past year. We couldn’t ask for a better team. As a bit of a Xmas surprise, the GM team has setup an event on Nighthaven that will allow players to join in the fun on GM Island until January 1st! There will be mysterious Christmas strangers in the major cities that will teleport you to GM Island where you can chat with GM’s in game, as well as other players of both factions! From our family here at Elysium, we’d like to wish everyone a very Happy Holidays!
