It's a game bug that revives your explorer.

It switches his stance (i.e. the "d" puts him in defensive stance rather than volley stance), and the game revives him to recognize this command. He will come back with almost no hp and the LOS of livestock, which makes him useless for direct combat purposes. However, this bug is severely imbalanced for 3 reasons: 1)Warchiefs can be revived and provide their hp buff indefinitely, 2)Trading posts cannot be denied in discovery, as the explorer can simply be revived to hammer a few times again and again, 3)This can allow the explorer to continue to pick up and/or contest treasures.

If it were not impossible to prove or track, this would probably be considered a cheat by the larger community.

PS: Alt-D is the most recognizable form of this bug, but there is one for every stance (e.g. Alt-S, Alt-M, etc.)

Most players learn Alt-D in scenarios like risk, where it is more of a necessity than a cheat.

I asked the admins of ESO and they told me it was in the game, not a cheat.

Pretty much.

It''s nothing short of cheating though, in real games. You aren''t allowed to use this exploit and doing so will quickly you strip you of any dignity you might have had before using it.

The same ESO admins who are letting moesbar running rampant?

They say it''s not a cheat because they aren''t going to patch it, so it becomes a hassle to enforce the rule. That is the ONLY reason they said that.

I dont even think its that bad. I almost like it as a game mechanic, as its basically a double edged sword. After all, you're giving your opponent 45 exp everytime the explorer dies, so the TP denying thing still works.

Anti-ottoman guide, dick-edition
1. Play Iro
2. Keep killing abus with eagle eye ability
3. If explorer dies, alt+d and eagle eye more abus
4. Repeat until no more abus
5. Good to do during main fights so opponent doesn't notice the faggot is alive again.
Note: Don't do this too often to make sure that you have the ability available and explorer has regened some health.

It's pretty broken for Japan players. Lose your explorer? NO PROBLEM! Just alt+d and keep on shrining.

Your explorer is supposed to be dead and you should only revive him with another unit when he has enough HP. This is not a feature, its a bug.
This shit is broken as it makes the explorer invincible, which is a very good deal for native civs, india, and Japan

Well from some of the posts in this thread it doesn''t sound like everyone appreciates how amoral and broken it is. I think it''s usage is also disappointingly high.

Play a game against an Iroquois player with town destroyer who is using that bug and then tell me it isn''t a cheat.

Why would anyone resign over that? Just camp units on the explorer and send vils to wall it in. Then place towers all around and write "NOOB" with wall pieces.

ye it isnt just a glitch. Like said... If you use it constantly it becomes a cheat though.. Anyway its lame you can take a treasure finish a tp upgrade ur units ecc. All actions you couldnt do if you made the mistake to lose Explorer. On those cases just play and dont use that glitch only to fix mistake imo

If you use it once it becomes a cheat. One revival can end the game (e.g. one more siege animation on the tc, one more eagle shot on the infantry). You are relying on people to do the right thing. Bad idea.
