So I've played somewhere between 3500-4000 bgs, and last night was the closest I've come to reporting a player. I've seen worse. Not sure what it was about this that set me off. Anyway, the details.
Eye of the Storm. Opposing mage is in the middle and has picked up the flag before our side is 10 feet from the starting area. Easy cap.
Fast forward. We're down 1450-1440. Each side has 2 bases. We've got the flag near one of our bases but lose it and said mage picks it up. Rather than running to a base, he runs back to the middle and slides off onto that little ledge that is out of range / los. He waits out the timer there and we lose.
So my questions.
1. Are either (or both) of these actions considered exploits? Or is this "clever gameplay"?
2. If they are exploits and I report the player, is the GM likely to do anything? Or am I going to get a "there, there" or "needs corroboration" kind of response?
