In this last war sotf came to rol thinking they could easilly crush them since their (RoL) score was significantly lower.

It turned out that rol was very much superior to sotf despite their lack of heavy donating. Immediately after the final battle many sotfers went into vacation mode. Making rols victory almost worthless....

Should this really be ok? Seems very shady.... they are very much NOT on vacation.... but hiding to protect their crystals.

My question to everyone is....

Is this a super awesome tactic? Or is it down right abuse of the system? And if it is abuse, what should be done to those that do it?

Ofcourse it's abuse if someone goes in vacation mode on server 1 and keeps playing on server 2 & 3.

Why not make it so that vacation mode is linked to the BD account? So if you enter vacation mode on world 1, you automatically activate vacation mode on every other world you're playing.

I know but it shouldnt affect all the worlds. If he wishes to make hes round go to waste by going in vacation mode, let him do so.

Yes it is, you should talk to the admin in your world and explain the situation which is really unffair and maybe they will get forced back to the round.

it is a abuse. i can confirm that. i know admins have banned for it before. so please report all vacation abuse into the admins.

if i'm not wrong they will change the vacation with the next update (should be right around the corner ;) ) so that your whole account go into vacation instead of just that world.

i really hope that it will stop vacation abuse

Well it is not against the rules on E2 yet, and is considered an honorable tactic (for some weird reason).

it's against the rules everywhere. but in most cases the colonys get a time frame to get out of vacation before the ban occur.

The admins check if they're indeed inactive during their vacation period they can't just ban right away they've got to prove it.

they get a time frame so that they have a chance not to get banned.

Why would you give them a chance not to get banned? Didn't they already break the rules?

That is really weak man. How much time do they get? A week?

Very mentally challenged policy.....

Or is this a preferential treatment thing?
