As I am sure most of you have experienced, combat logging can be the worst thing to happen on the server. It can happen right away or even hours into a raid, rendering the attacker unable to complete the raid and get any loot.
As all big raids have to be online the current way of dealing with combat logging really discourages any form large pvp. Yes the offender always recieves a warning however the attacker recieves no compensation for the time invested or resources. Couple this with popcorning and it makes for a pretty soul destroying experience when it occurs.
My suggestion is simply that if someone combat logs, when available, an admin grants access to the combat loggers base to the attacker. In my opinion it has no place in the cluster. It is dealt well extremely well by admins, the combat logging tribe is always punished but the attacker never gets any benefits. If the tribe knew that if they logged their stuff would be automatically lost maybe this could end people doing it.
I understand in some cases some tribes do not purposely combat log and of course in situations like this it should be treated differently.
Let me know what you think.
