Why do more and more people start just doing this? I find now after patch we get more griefers than ever at low end spots like helms or manes even rogues. I was just at elrics and had 2 people start farming on top of me and I murdered both. They brought entire guild to zerg me out and follow me around mediah disrupting my gameplay. I switched channel and the same thing is going on? 

So lemme get this straight. Once I start getting gear and able to defend my spots from PK'ers I start getting karma bombed and griefed by lowbies and zerg guilds? Seems to happen way too often after merge and after last patch. Or maybe people think just because its 10$ game they can come in and do what they please(Which is true but damn don't disrupt a players grind time).

I know it's never a re portable offense to karma bomb someone or when someone farms over you. But when its taken to the extent to have a few guilds hunt you down and prevent you to farm on any channel you choose is kind of sad.

Please check the Poll so I know this isn't just me having this issue and keep the thread construction and no "GIT GUD" trolls please. I really wanna know the issues here and how I can still enjoy my grind time without this happening.(I even have a ghulie suit to prevent name shown...)

this is your problem... a normal human being would try and communicate with other ppl before just randomly killing them. whether other players "grief" you solely depend on your actions.

alright now they deserve to die lol... i would flag on them too

however, they might not be new players tho... might just be some alts from a large guild. or smaller guilds with a few alliances.

You're one of the vets, but I guess it still stands. Welcome to BDO, where you don't get anywhere by playing nice.

Play nice and leave when you get pked, you don't get to grind spots that are for your levelbecause level 60s are level 52-56 spots.

Finally gear up to defend yourself, get killstealed to oblivion.

 

My advice, I'd they aren't guildless, declare on them using a proxy protected guild abs then declare on the guild using your own. We've started doing this in EU lately. It's not a healthy solution, not even a solution if I'm honest, but it's the symptom of the environment created by the devs, so brother side can complain about it.

You disturbed their game play, so they responded. End of story. You don't own any real estate in BDO. That's what ya get for flagging up and PKing them IMO lol.

Oh look. Another one of these threads.

There is really not much that can be done that won't screw over an innocent party one way or another. Both sides can be abused, blahblah..

Bring some friends to outgrind them until they leave if you don't want to flag.

Open world FFA PvP with no rewards and no punishments is a dream. Dream where killing a random straggler on the desert will not make Heidel sentries run after you....

Needs a new karma system then I'd flag. Otherwise I just sit there and watch the kiddies whisper me in caps "GIT GUD SCRUB AHAHAHAHAFHFEFBABAABABAA" While my channel c/d goes down. ;3 But other than that I still get shit from new players.

Perhaps you should not be where you are? I mean once this is true -

Once I start getting gear and able to defend my spots from PK'ers I start getting karma bombed and griefed by lowbies and zerg guilds? Seems to happen way too often...

you gotta ask...why are you at Elrics and Helms if you are geared? That is level up territory not to mention the unfortunate guild mission or two?  Don't be that guy that's in High School and goes back to hang out with the 6th graders he left behind - do your graduation missions and move out.

Elrics gets me 50mil every 3 hours or 4 since its less cucked out than sausans is by top guilds and I have a nice time with skill points there. I do ask for parties and never kill on sight. So its the other party that is in the wrong even if I am geared or not.

the entire game is one big grief

 

classes are imbalanced as shit both in pvp and pve 

you go to pve and some scrub is allowed to waste your time and nerves and he'll walk free because they removed the only punishment there was to griefing so now he can throw his disgusting char and body at you to onehit super weak mobs that present no challenge whatsoever and require super low ap to kill (making it so that even lowbies/bad people can easily ruin pve) 

then after you endure this somehow, if you didn't lose your nerves and insult him and got banned for it cus writing text in 2017 is more offensive than some guy dedicating 12 hours of the day to grief you in every way possible, you farm money and then someone in your guild gets boss drops instead and gets 5 times more money than you did in 5 times less time bcause who cares about balance or fairness

then after you endure all this you go enchant your gear and reach 130 failstacks instead , throwing 8 times more money at it than your friend does and getting it 2 months after him after grinding every single day while hes just chillin and then

you decide to go pvp and some guy desyncs his ass off like crazy and hits you from outside of your screen as melee, then grabs and teleports your char 10m away in his hands and then this repeats over and over and over, you kill 400 people and by the time you even pot up to full hp half of them are already alive cause theres no death penalties in bdo and respawn is instant so they can just rush at you before the fight in which you killed them is even over, LMAO, and then they hit the air somewhere 10m besides you and teleport your char in that place instead 

then you realize your class has some ridiculously gamebreaking bug that they refuse to acknowledge and address  and then after all this if you write 4 letters you get suspended  cause someone decided to abuse the system and cause letters are super offensive , nevermind that you have some exploiter guy showing off his 23billion on the forum cause he's never been caught 

then you go node war and get outnumbered 10:1 while being constantly provoked/trashtalked 

then you disconnect either from the server either you get a critical error because yea

I dont know why asian mmo's always have this shitty insta-rez mechanic.

It means you can never win a fight if your opponent is a big enough douche.

You're complaining a guild didn't respect "your" grind spot, than declared war and zerged you down?

Sure it sucks, but it's not exactly a new thing lol. Been going on since day one of this game. That's usually how grind spots are secured, using the war feature to kill the competition and superior numbers. Not sure how it's related to karma bombing though. Karma bombing only works because the person is protected from wars or guildless.

People who agrees to 1v1 "duel" for the spot and willingly leaves if they loose, will always be a minority. Most guys will call for back up, if the other player is stronger. It's still PvP, just an unfair situation.

yep 

 

i feel your pain 

 

even if you do find a worthy pvp opponent and kill him, he gets salty because he cant dec in you and bring his gank squad and procceds to karma bomb you instead 

 

honesly, i would like to see what would happen if they just removed karma loss for pk. 

It wouldnt fix the greifing, but atleast it wouldnt be one sided

Yeah they need to remove it for now and just enforce final wars for this sort of thing. The one sided griefing needs to stop because I'm going to start reporting people who do this to people as hindering my gameplay.
