On The Horizon

Anti-Mesh System

The results from the implementation of the anti-mesh system has had a positive effect on the overall health of the game. We ask for your patience as we continue to improve the false positives you are seeing. Every report you submit brings us closer to an exploit-free environment. Thank you for your patience! We realize this is a inconvenience for those who encounter these problematic areas. We are working diligently to correct any false positives that currently remain. When making your reports, please list the map you had the encounter on.
