Griefing auto-fishers

88 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I have a question.  Why are the children who play on weekends allowed to kill people auto-fishing?  I see this as griefing by the bottom-feeders.  Since one cannot change gear during an attack, so the victims cannot defend themselves, this cannot be in any way confused with or called PVP.  This is not playing the game, this is griefing others and intentionally trying to obstruct their gameplay.  Just turned on my monitor and had been  killed by someone and lost a bunch of fish.  All these jerks get their ship built and go try out their cannons on people fishing. This is the 4th time this has happened since the last expansion.

Risk and reward. If you fish in a combat area to get better catches, you take the risk that you may be killed. 

I don't pk but I also don't afk fish in dangerous areas

I was fishing almost in the Epheria harbor, I wasn't way out in some dangerous area of the sea.  Killing fishermen is not PVP it's harassing other players who can't respond to an attack even if they are at the keyboard at the time.  What you say is true.  Thanks for a civil and polite reply. :)

If I see you afk fishing in a combat zone ... If I have karma or you're a war target, I'm probably gonna kill you. Because I can. ;D Gimme some of your fishes. 

 

Next time pick a better place to afk fish! There's lots of safe, abundant safe zone spots for afk fishing~ +_+

that changed months ago.  Thankfully. now you must do the catfish quest to go past level 49.99, and 50 is the new  PVP threshold.

On a slightly related note, do any of you know of some excellent places to fish up relics that might be in a danger zone? ill take the risk. I like to active fish while reading, so I might be able to mitigate some of the danger for a higher reward.

you drop fish when you diem often quite a lot of em if you have a near full inventory. Best shot if you want to fish outside safe zones is to use a toon under level 50.

OP, if you have your gear quick slotted, you can equip it even while being attacked. Just an FYI.

Yeah, it's annoying getting killed while you are afk. I wish it wasn't in the game, but them's the breaks.

If this is allowed to continue, now players can attack with ships, soon all the ports will be camped by bottom-feeders.  I was fishing close to Epheria because I have a boat with little life left and I can fish with it for weeks if I don't go far. :)

How we play a game or sandbox game for that matter is perception. I see no morals in pixels touching pixels, just coding.
You enjoy fishing. Great for you. I enjoy killing everything in my sight.

I was fishing almost in the Epheria harbor, I wasn't way out in some dangerous area of the sea.  Killing fishermen is not PVP it's harassing other players who can't respond to an attack even if they are at the keyboard at the time.  What you say is true.  Thanks for a civil and polite reply. :)

 

What you say does not compute. As i said no morals can be tied to non phsyical actions that you yourself aren't even attached to. Do you realize that you are not your character? You are speaking of it as if it is bullying. Even then "if" it was it would be 3 times removed from reality still. Sounds silly. I look at other characters as monsters.
I see afk fishers as a coin bag. I don't look at your character and think "thats a real person with real feelings" sorry but your computer has a char on it that are simply just pixels. If you think this is bullying stop playing the game or look away from the monitor. All these threads do is teach people like me who kill afk fishers, To devote more time to it so you all cower in safe-zones and stop making these threads.

 

harassment definition - aggressive pressure or intimidation.

Killing your afk fisher and walking away is neither.

Do attackers gain anything by killing Auto-fishers or are they just being malicious jerks intent on diminishing the game experience of other players?

Again your perception of reality is skewed. This is not affecting your real life. There is no morality tied to non phsyical interactions 3 times removed from reality.

Welcome to the world of horse breeders where this phenomenon is widely known.
Suck it up.

Just like I wouldn't suggest doing a little processing in the middle of a node war, I wouldn't suggest afk fishing in combat areas if you're gonna get salty about getting trolled.

I disagree a bit, but I get where you're coming from. It's a video game, it doesn't really matter and you can easily block people who bother you.  

But this a social game, and we should strive to be good to one another. Respectful. Considerate. That being said, not everyone will be kind to you. It's better to act the way you want to be treated and ignore/inhibit those that treat you poorly than it is to continually demand that those people change. Tell someone they're being annoying, then move on. 

Can't really inhibit people from killing you, so it's best to take personal responsibility and either put yourself in a position where they can't or don't let it bother you and continue on your merry way.
