  1. Abnell added a post in a topic Why is there no increasing res timer for being killed by the same person?   

    Every time I tried to pvp him I died without getting him below 50%, so clearly he was better in pvp. He was still killing me while I was running around killing mobs, just a lot more slowly, so by the time I died there wasn't much left for him to do before I could resurrect and go back and do it again. What's wrong with the situation is that he won every fight but still lost the spot, which seems very paradoxical and could easily be avoided with some changes to res mechanics or harsher death penalties.

    Or he was a warrior and I am a wizard, meaning my aoe is much better than his and he couldn't burst me down, so he was reduced to chasing me while I teleported around and cleared multiple packs. 
    If it's a competition where players fight each other over a resource, then it's a pvp competition, which should be decided by pvp. As it is pvp isn't the deciding factor in open world encounters, but rather who has the most patience.

    It's the same issue though. Whether it's running into you to kill your mobs or flagging to try to kill you, it can be done to you endlessly, no matter how many times you kill the guy.

    You've never heard of or seen karma bombing?

    Not sure what competitive pve you're talking about, except life skill leaderboards. Everything else that is competitive in BDO is pvp.

    My complaint is that pvping for resources in a pvp game counts for nothing, and I think the game would be more engaging if that was changed. If I wanted to out-pve someone I'd play WoW.

    I don't think chain ganking is possible in bdo, since you never rez in the same spot you died unless you use a tear. And I think killing me a bunch of times should be enough of a good job to win him the spot. As for the cost of wars, I agree, though that's probably a different issue.

    I think it's pretty clear what I proposed. I died to him a bunch of times, didn't kill him once, and he lost the spot anyway. I'm capable of seeing this isn't great game design even if in this instance it was of benefit to me.

    I don't like that there is no real penalty to pvp deaths in a pvp game, and someone who clearly outclasses someone else still can't hold a farm spot efficiently, if at all. Tomorrow someone will do it to me.

    Why is there no increasing res timer for being killed by the same person?
    I say this as someone who was attacked and chased as he was running through another player's rotation, went back to pvp, died several times, and then decided that the guy was a ----- for attacking in the first place and proceeded to claim the spot by outfarming him even after his guild declared war on mine and killing me stopped costing him karma. I was killing the mobs faster than he was killing me, and even after he eventually got me down he had nothing to do before I respawned and went back again, hence my question in the title. After a bit of this he left, even though I didn't get him below 50% hp once, but even if he didn't I could have kept doing it and gotten better xp/hour than him. 
    And before you focus on how much of an asshole I was, don't hate the player, hate the game. I'd gladly accept changes to pvp that make what I did impossible, or at least not as easy.

  11. Abnell added a post in a topic 2 days fighting bosses for no loot   

    Thanks for the well intentioned advice, but I'm already on the boss discord, and I recently got a new pc that can run bosses with player effects on without a problem, so those aren't my issues. I'm not one of the people who goes to bosses and doesn't get loot. My complaints are entirely objective. 
    The spawn windows are fairly accurate, but still vary by hours. Someone who plays a few hours a day can in no way reliably participate in bosses on a weekly basis, and if he doesn't use the boss discord he might not be able to participate in any at all. A third party program shouldn't be required to be able to participate in endgame pve content. At the very least they should add some sort of in-game npcs that can tell you boss timers. 
    The mechanics are terrible, but probably as good as they can be when they're designed for an unorganized zerg of players. The problem is that rushing to the boss that randomly spawned so you can start hitting it soon enough to register on the invisible damage meter, all the while redoing your graphic settings, is a frustrating and annoying experience. If loot wasn't completely random and being present got you at least 1guaranteed aura, or something of the sort, then people would feel like even if they went through all that bullshit, they'll still get something in the end.

    No, we just don't accept something being improbable as a substitution for engaging, difficult, and rewarding content.

  13. Abnell added a post in a topic 2 days fighting bosses for no loot   

    The boss system in BDO is the most terrible I have ever experienced, and I say that as someone who got a dandelion box from randomly checking out Karanda the day after I reinstalled the game, and who has gotten multiple livertos, awakenings boxes, 1m+ gems since. Random loot on top of random spawn times on top of shitty insta-kill mechanics on top of a hundred people on your screen so you can barely see the boss, let alone his little animation that's supposed to alert you to move away. All the people who I've heard support it sound like they're suffering from Stockholm syndrome.

    Don't know how long this has been in, but it's awesome, thanks. I was pretty annoyed to not be able to view event information without going to the forums.

    Except the only thing I saw in the patch notes was that there would be an event, not its reward or the conditions for receiving it. The specifics were outlined on the forums and nowhere else.
