There is a guy griefing the main Top-Notch quest giver. He's had his challenger parked on top of the quest giver all morning. I have his name & account name in addition to a screenshot. Where do I report this too?

how is this an issue? aren't you able to just walk through his vehicle to the quest giver? Thought they disabled vehicle collision for this reason

It should be fixed with the disabled collision

It is not. You cannot access to the quest giver even if you walk through the vehicle. Go there and see for yourself.

strange, thought that would never be an issue. guess you'll have to submit a ticket - https://support.trionworlds.com/app/ask

also, have you logged in/out? maybe it's just a ghost car

Yeah I have tried that. It's not just me. About 12 people standing around him. Nobody can access the quest.

He popped out of the car for about 5 seconds. I got a screenshot of his name/info. Just don't know who to report him to.

Yes. Tried that too. Several people standing around trying different things. He's been doing this for 3+ hours now.

They haven't fixed the collision as of earlier today. The same happens when other players are standing over a pick up in an ark fall. On top of this issue I believe they should make it to where vehicles are forbidden inside the ark fall radius. I'm tired of people parking their car on the shard and not being able to see where the holes are being made. There were easily 7 cars parked on one last night. You also have to worry about the players that just want to mess up the ark falls which ride around in circles killing all the skitterlings so they won't form holes. I know I know . . . there will always be a**holes in the game, but they could limit their capability.

probably be easier to have the shards cause damage on impact, so vehicles would explode. as for the skitterlings, there's a good chance some players still haven't figured out that they shouldn't be killed. though, i do like your theory :P

I usually drive full force into an arkfall when it's in progress, straight into the biggest bug i see.

They should have a vehicle damaging field as wide as the arkfall ring.

Going on at least 4+ hours now. This is ridiculous.

I don't see how people resort to doing something so lowly as this. Hope things get sorted out soon. I feel for you.

He is still there.

I reported him directly to Trion Support. I had to wait in a 2 hour support queue. They said "I will investigate the matter immediately. You will not hear back specifically regarding this issue as our violation procedures are confidential."

I will CC this to the other threads.

ive actually done this to myself a few times, jump out of the vehicle too late and the vehicle will roll on top of quest objective or quest giver, you have to get in your car and move it before you can interact with it

Who pays for a game just to do this sort of thing for hours on end? I feel sorry for that guy and his lack of a life.

Players like him should be banned permanently. There is no excuse for such behavior.

If you jump out your car and it rolls over an ammo box etc then just hit V and summon instantly to the side. No need to jump back in :p

As for this guy, wtf is he so bored and utterly utterly fed up to buy the game then do this. Not even like hes ram raiding arkfalls etc. Just sitting there. He must be moving or doing something to stop him getting booted afk etc too
