    Best is when you grab, it fails, you stiffen, it fails, then they blow you up with 1 button.
    Tricks, tactics and skills are cool, they can win you a fight absolutely.  Though level and gear can kick your strategy in the junk.
    Sure, the answer to that is, "get on my level, son!"
    but that doesn't help at the point of contact.

    I guess what I'm confused about is that your position seems to not be consistent with your first response to the post that got us talking.  You're making fine sense here, out of context of it, and I'm understanding your position as it seems to evolve.
    Though i'd like to say, someone with better gear and levels is more powerful if they are also determined.  If you can wipe a party, that's cool.  Good for you.  Though you make it sound like you wouldn't, so that power is actually worthless.  It's only if you have the desire to use it that it matters at all.
    I agree this game is a jungle, and no one has to play by the rules the other guy is, though.

  4. Alrikmerc added a post in a topic TET Yellow Awak better than TET Dandelion?!   

    The only realistic argument that I've heard in regards to this is the following:
    Dandelion has a terrible cost/AP ratio when looking at what it improves vs how much you're paying, but it is an increase.
    If they're the same enchant level, in PvP, the difference is small, but generally noticeable by all reports.
    If they're the same enchant level in PvE, dandelion is undeniably better in every way.
    Though this is only what I've collected from reading all that various shitposts about this subject.  the real issue with these tests is you need to do it in a vacuum to see the actual results, and circumstances during play don't always agree.  If you aren't concerned with PvE, is the small but actually noticeable damage bump worth the high cost?  That's the question between yellow and blue.

    you're right.  I don't understand.  Are you saying that simply because you can make people negative when they kill you for disrupting their grinding?  Actually don't get it.

    Pretty sure feature, not bug.  They made us weak to magic.  We can delete people even if we have sub par AP tho, so...maybe that's a the trade?

    Welp, if that's how you honestly want to spend your time.  Carry on.  I'd rather get exp, really don't care enough about other people to try and ruin their day.  Then again, I don't even go to Sausans/Pirates unless someone is trying to force out a guildmate who was already there.  Never had a good experience with it when I used to try to exp  there.

    Bolded part wasn't a reply to me, but it'll be addressed later anyway.
    You find my posts disgusting because you've rarely ever come across someone who intentionally karma bombed, and that a "huge portion" of it is people trying to solo a group area, or people stealing a "taken area" and then crying they get bombed.
    Well...let's break that down a bit.
    Are there taken areas?  Does it belong to anyone?  If you have a different position than most "karma griefers" , maybe you should define it before going on and on.
    the point i made was that there are people who will jam an area and and simply outgrind you, tell you it's your problem and not theirs, but they will never attack you, because they know it's to their advantage if you flag first.
    The idea that the person adding on the area isn't the instigator is laughable.
    Especially when you say things like, "If you PK me I will ram it up your a$$" and "inf act I go out of my way to teach them a lesson with long term consequences"
    Now, if you are only referring to people who add on your area, that's fine.  If they start it, then they have to deal with the consequences.  Yet I actually have come across the people who say they don't care if i was there first, or if i don't like them being there, I should flag or leave.  That's the situation karma bombing has brought.
    It's getting the point where I actually applaud people for running into the rotation i'm using, flagging and attacking me without preamble, because at least they're upfront about what they want.  
    but let's not get to out of hand here.  Yes, there are a lot of people who will add on an area, see you, say "my bad" and then leave/change channels.  I give them a chance to do that, because of the fact that attacking them for what could be an honest mistake is unnecessary.

    Don't misunderstand.  Most of us are tickled as shit that Heilang is rockin' things.  I think there's only like 1 or two of us who are cynical enough to complain about this.  Either by claiming it should have been this way all along, or that it's not even enough compared to class X.  You get that everywhere you go.

    So that have to be polite to you first?  Can you be more clear?

    Well, darlin', I don't complain about the karma system.  And your point wasn't made by the comment that I quoted.  Though you'd have to be beyond idiot level of crying to think that actions don't have consequences.  That isn't something you can argue against.  There is plenty of recourse for action in this game, whether it's PKing or Karma Bombing.
    Would the game work better if everyone were much more civil?  Arguable, because the environment pushes a might makes right agenda.  It's about competition and strength.  Would it be more pleasant?  Yeah, totally.
    Yet let's look at the big point people do actually bring up, that is arguable: "This spot doesn't belong to you, learn to share."
    That is the biggest load of hypocrisy that can be mustered for trying to tell someone it's okay for you to shit all over their day.  If you can't see anything wrong with this, check yourself.  When someone adds on your spot and won't leave, it's a form of bullying.  If you're going to cite acting politely, you don't add on the spot.  You ask if you can join them, or better yet, say you're LFG in channel chat, or best start your own group.  There are ways to share a spot, and get groups, if you don't want to do that, and choose to bully your way into the spot via karma bombing, you're the belligerent one.
    Say whatever you like.  Though you're blind if you think this isn't a two way street.

    Perhaps a bit of thought as to what this game actually is would help you learn how to live in an environment that really doesn't give a shit about you or your opinion.  That's not me coming down on you, there are nice people.  I tend to be one of them, at least in the field.  Though the truth is no one owes you a bit of politeness.  You are pushing a standard from outside this game that doesn't exist inside of it.

    I can't even talk on this part.  Since a rough TET roulette my GS went down about 24 points and everything I do feels useless lol.
    Even all Heilang's extra damage is useless as I'm getting CC'd before I can even land more than 1 hit.  Painful.

  15. Alrikmerc added a post in a topic Ranger need a buff   

    That does suck quite a bit.
    Though currently something is up with pets.  Witch and Tamer particularly are getting big damage from them right now.
    If that's that case, I'm not sure the problem is specific to ranger, but if it is, and this is all legit (not calling you a liar, but seeing is believing) then yeah, it wouldn't hurt to mess with ranger's damage scaling some.  Though honestly, we could all use a bit of an adjustment (some up, some down).
    Thanks for giving me an example.
