Kill trading right or wrong?

I just left my guild... They feel like it's not against the rules of the game so they are ok w/ it as a guild.

If something is not against the rules but against the spirit of the game is it an exploit? Do you think kill trading is a valid way to play the game?

Have fun farming crates with 30 other guys or searching for 1 enemy player for 30 mins.

It's cheating. It should be a bannable offense. It's collusion.

BW is dropping the ball on this every day that they allow it to continue.

BW has made an official statement (which I can't find now... dang) that players meeting in a PvP zone to kill each-other is neither an exploit or against their terms.

The carebears will complain but in the end of the day Tuesday nights with 1 frame per second and 200+ vs 75 of pure AoE is kill trading too therefore they are taking part in it regardless.

it would be cheating if the developers of the game took pvp at all seriously

they don't, so it's working as intended.
things need to change
We have some of the most experienced PvP developers in the world on this team™

whether it's against the rules or not isn't the point. the fact that it occurs at all is a huge red beacon that the OWPvP system in this game is a complete train wreck. a successful FvF system would have enemies at each others throats, killing and trying not to be killed by the other side, not colluding over the most efficient way to grind out gear/valor. so, in a manner of speaking, kill trading is WRONG in the spiritual (if not literal) sense of the word.

n00b question...is the bridge fights considered "kill trading"?

i think these fights are stupid and def. not what BW intended, but i feel like i either do it or don't and fall behind the pvp gear curve...

it's not against the rules.

I kill trade because i don't find it fun to spend 2-3 hours collecting crates.
