Death to traitors!

Unfortunately, the forum rule against naming-and-shaming exists.

Last night, a small group of us (4) hopped on our Nightblades with the intent of harassing the enemy, getting a feel for the new patch, and introducing a new player to Cyrodiil. We were having fun going against a group of very competent AD players of about equal numbers, until someone from our alliance showed up and started leading the ADs to us while we were in stealth.

I get that "all's fair" in warfare, but IRL the guy would have been hanged/shot for treason if he weren't fragged in the field.

That got me thinking that maybe Cyrodiil should be changed so that standard stealth rules also apply to members of your own alliance that are not in your group. It would be a relatively simple way to stop this type of cheating without the need to report players for doing it.

Thoughts?

    Get a friend on AD, get him on discord, then gank their scout while they stand around helpless.

    I’m always grateful when another faction guildie points me in the directions of a hiding weenie. I for one don’t feel like walking keep to keep being stuck in combat. I’d rather ride my reskinned mount but to each their own ig.

    Don't forget to give that gimp a lil treat, maybe slip him a sausage ;)
    If you need to rely on subterfuge to survive in cyrodiil you should probably stick to pve.

    Hilarious. Glad I don’t crouch walk everywhere I go in Cyro. Whatever helps you sleep at night tho. If you see me in Cyrodiil please show me your skills and how I belong in “pve.” Until then I’ll be stuck in combat because somebody is afraid of a 1v1.

    Absurd this isn’t even possible with faction locks. Now we are all jolly good fellows who sit around camp fires and exchange war stories.

    Its a video game, albeit a very lop sided video game none the less its just a game. "Loyalty" is irrelevant. AVA colors mean nothing.

    Calling some one a spy reminds me of when a player gets killed by 2 people and then says he got zerged down.

    It’s like stealing signs in baseball, it really pisses people off and yet is as old as the game and is a part of it.

    Night blades in stealth got exposed. All is fair when dealing with these sneaky rats. At least, gank alone that is more decent action to do.

    Often stealth players that are not grouped work together. When taking or defending a keep I like to hunt those in sneak and sometimes find others doing the same. Obviously we are in sneak most of the time and it is not uncommon for us to keep an eye out on the others for possible targets. It works well.

    Faction lock or not, some of us just want to expose people that hide and only want to help when they outnumber the enemy.

    Spies? In a faction locked campaign? No! That's impossible.

    Lol @ all the most vocal anti faction lock lobbyists. Congrats. You found a thread that proves that it didn’t stop ALL cross faction shenanigans, even though we all knew it wouldn’t. It’s good to have a hobby. 😂

    Haha brilliant! And spot on.

    OP didn't even state he was in a faction locked campaign is the best part. What id give for this to have been on 7 day CP lol
