I've been up there and it's over 30 m to the doors. Maybe a marksman sniper could still reach them but I seem to remember targeting people up there and they were 40 m away when on the doors.

And btw I wouldn't consider this an exploit at all, just a wise use of map design, if that is its even possible. Personally I just jump up there a lot at the round start to get a birds eye view on which door they're hitting.
And it's pretty useful if your pugging and you quickly notice too many went to defend one side. Pick out a high priority on the other side force pull up ( as a TankSin) then KB to the other side. Presto, numbers are evened out.

Good news is that the timing on this is pretty difficult to pull off. The time that it takes to get from the spawn (which NEVER seems to be open when I arrive) to the consoles is about the same as the cap time.

I completely agree with this, its like there being a wall with a hole in it. He is just going through the hole even though it's not meant to be there.

Ah, you must be one of those old Pubs who used to arm the doors in VS before the match started.
Or the guys who cap NC nowadays before the game begins. They too say it's not an exploit but a smart move.

I suggest you go all the way and DL that little program Gingers has released.
Or perhaps a nice lag switch instead? I hear netlimiter is very good.

Not sure exactly where you aim for - simply because I dont do it myself. Basically, its the very last room on voidstar. When you die as a defender (his team were defending) and you leave spawn behind there are 3 shields (with 3 consoles) that can be opened by the attackers. You are not supposed to shoot through the bloody shields as a defender and stop them capping, especially when the opposition cant shoot you back. He was halfway up the main ramp and he was able to hit everyone capping the consoles and they could not do anything about it.

Not sure the exact spot, I honestly dont care for trying to get people banned etc (though it makes me question what else a player would do just to win), I just think if the maps have "gaps" that can be exploited I would kindly ask the devs to fix them, because otherwise its going to cause conflict (and it did briefly).

Thing is the guy must have gotten this info from somewhere, but in a year never seen anything like this before. If this is the new trend - that players exploit maps to win and this is what sets the "advanced players" (lol) apart from the decent ones, I think they've lost the plot personally. The irony was they would of won anyway imo, it was a very close fast voidstar but they (he) had to do that to clinch it.

Like i said to him at the time bad form, but like I said at the start of the thread some of you might think its acceptable to exploit maps. I just see it as cheating.

EDIT: having just looked at the shields there appears to be a gap at the bottom of the shields that you can shoot through by postioning yourself in the right spot on the map. So you can only shoot through it from one way - the ramp on the defence side. Its too low to shoot through from the attacking side which means the defenders can stop you capping and you cant stop them doing it.

hah, this happened to us the other night, some imp managed to 3cap NC before the match began, somehow got out of his team's spawn and capped all 3 nodes.

But yes, no such thing as hacking/exploits, never existed.
Lightsabers, Force Choke, Force Lightning, Jedi Mind Tricks, what else could you want from an MMO? There may be other MMOs out there, but do they have Lightsabers?....Do They?

Once you're in the hole, what's a few more feet?

This. And snipers have several 35m abilities and a 40m ability.

It is an exploit, especially if you're stealth and sitting up there telling your team which side is capping. That = unfair advantage.
