    Stumbled upon an idea to potentially help alleviate the problems being caused for CP parties by the rampant CP botting on Asura. This is a stopgap measure, but it would also serve the purpose of reviving currently dead content.

    Remove the exp/kill and cp/kill system from Incursion. (Basically, everyone inside gets full exp/cp per kill as if they were solo.)
    Increase the number of instances (I have no idea how many there are, but would need at least 10 I think and probably want around 20.)

    And there we go. Instant large scale exp/cp "camp" that ignores the biggest problem in the game that's seemingly being ignored.
    I get that it takes time to perform a proper investigation into reported cheaters, but it's painful for the legitimate players who have to adjust their play to account for the majority of CP camps being infested by large groups of botted parties while waiting in frustration for the STF to do something about characters that they've reported multiple times for flagrant and undeniable cheating. Giving us an instanced alternative CP location that encourages taking groups sounds like a great way to reduce the anger and frustration level of the legitimate players in the meantime.

    If you're feeling generous, add non-ilvl Pulse weapons to the pool for Grand coffers to add additional incentive to take advantage of the adjustments. If the pool for the coffers isn't big enough currently, just replace the garbage items that can already be purchased from vendor NPCs (like Rabbit Hides and Bird Feathers,) and adjust the drop rates accordingly.

    Incursion is one of the, if not THE worst event ever created. But I would do it for a better than 1% chance at pulse weapons.

    This only seems to be a problem on Asura tbh. Move to a smaller server and you can CP all day long almost anywhere. The only place I ever see bots is (i honestly don't know why) the mandragoras outside Audolin.

    That is why I called out that it is a problem on Asura. For players on the smaller servers, it may not seem like a big deal, but here we go over 3,000 players logged in during peak hours. Reports to the STF about blatant botting appears to go unheard and you won't find any Apex camps that don't have at least one bot group (not to mention the problems caused for new players/characters in lower level zones like Palborough Mines by those botting for their crafting Escutcheons.) That means that regardless of whether or not the issue is affecting you personally, it is still affecting a large portion of the playerbase, and something needs to be done.

    The changes I propose would not be able to negatively impact anyone as far as I can think of, provide a solid alternative to over-camped and bot-infested CP camps, and potentially address the current shortage of suddenly-necessary Pulse weapons. Yes, it's a stopgap. No, it doesn't directly address the problem. It would still serve as a net positive for everyone and at least give us all a way to put a bit more distance between us and them while we wait on the STF to do their job.

    Telling others to change servers because there are too many people breaking TOS on their server is amazingly shortsighted, doesn't actually do anything to help alleviate the problem for anyone and seems rather arrogant tbh. Why should I have to pay out of pocket because someone else is breaking the rules?

    Moving to a smaller server is not even an option for me unless/until SE offers a packaged Account Transfer service for $20 or less, since I am not paying ~$400 to move all of my characters to somewhere else.

    Gotta use that shield son. But yes, people are without a doubt doing something to improve HQ rate beyond what is normal, absolutely.

    There was an exploit that was reported, as it was witnessed by hundreds of people, with a person standing there with crafting hands on his feet, as well as on his hands.

    I believe SE fixed this though.

    just a noted comment

    I find it funny how quick people trash talk other peoples ideas and comments, but the real funny new is when it comes to someone asking for help those people are too busy insulting them to even fix the problem. just a noted comment...

    Can we please get S. Astral Detritus and M. Astral Detritus added to the list of Ambuscade rewards, like how many of the other items, used to upgrade weapons, are already a part of the Ambuscade rewards (Alexandrite, Heavy Metal, H-P Bayld, Mulcibar's Scoria, etc). Please, pretty please ?!?!?!

    Can we store Egg Locker, Egg Table, Egg Stool, and Egg Lantern with the item depository NPC or with the store books?
