Since the first week of IC hitting consoles, Skull of Corruption was relatively dead. Seeing no more than 10-15 DC/EP at a time (AD might have been there, but we never ran into them).
Since Saturday of last weekend, DC started coming in with larger waves. With those waves came a ton of players exploiting a very well known and what appears to be a very popular bugged Fighters Guild skill (There is no defending it. When more than half your group's damage report shows Rearming Trap, you know something's up).
We recently ran into one of these groups, who happened to be accompanied by EP players. It wasn't until we found, watched and witnessed DC allowing this EP to cap resources, then quickly recapping the resource, moving on to the next. At some point, we asked what was going on and this player admitted that he bought "protection" to be allowed to push for emperor.
Previous to these findings, taking keeps, scrolls or resources was entirely possible. However, these same people are now preventing other groups from doing much of anything if they themselves haven't been allowed by DC. These "Paid Emperor Pushes" are communicating with each other and letting opposition know where and when we'll be somewhere, somehow always knowing what keep we're going to before we even start laying siege to a keep or capping a resource. They always know where you're stealthed. One might think these players are clever, know their classes. Some may even think it's a "L2P" situation, however. They're not skilled and are easily dominated by well organized groups. It's these campaign breaking tactics that are their only saving grace in maintaining their presence.
All we need is more EP to join. They quickly scatter and hide when a large enough group comes their way. Come join us in Skull of Corruption. Lets prevent players like this from ruining the way AvA is meant to be played and go back to pushing for emperor legitimately.
If you want to be part of an well organized group that is in there daily and throughout the evening hours, PM me.
