If You Are Within The Radius of NYC You Belong Here!
We are well aware of the issues surrounding naked scouting.
Here is our view:
1) Solution attempts based on minimum gear do not work well, as the scouts would just equip that minimum gear instead of being naked. Also, you might also hit "normal" players with lower gear even though they were playing the game normally.
2) Solutions based on Albion Online Silver to log-in multiple times etc can and would always be circumvented. Also, they would not prevent a real player from just being a scout either.
3) A possible solution is to restrict respawn options in certain zones. We could for example say that if you die and your gear is too low, you cannot respawn in the same zone. Also, we could give you a respawn sickness/respawn cooldown. This would not prevent naked scouting, but would weaken it
4) We are planning to add dedicated scouting mechanics/items to the game in the future. They would provide a valid scouting alternative, but even those of course would not in themselves prevent naked scouting.
