Actually it has NOTHING to do with looting. The player was taking a low level character into a level 50 pvp zone and flipping objectives so players on the other side could flip them back. He was exploiting and was banned for doing so.

Helps if you folks actually read more then just the headlines.

Once again, They're banning for their own bad game design not an actual bug exploit. IF people under 50 aren't allowed to go to Ilum then they should have restricted where your ship could take you. IF you're not supposed to be able to just flip points and ignore PVP then they should have made the objectives actually require some PVP and not just mindless flip grinding. Also bear in mind that even on PVE servers, it's full PVP in this particular part of Ilum, so being a lowbie on Ilum just means you're going to get rocked if you DO go there and encounter PVP. Also, this game lets anyone create an alt on the opposite faction on the same server. There are also no mobs in this area, which could have easily been a good way to prevent lowbies from capping.

That's why this is occurring. There's not a lot of action on Ilum when the ONLY point to be there is to do your PVP daily then GTFO.

There isn't an actual bug that's being exploited, they are banning because their horrid game design in this area encourages this type of play, because on low-pop servers or off-peak times you won't likely see a base flip or PVP happen, making the dailies impossible to finish.
