Turn off EXP loss to BOSSES

27 posts in this topic

Posted

Lost 6% exp today fighting bosses thanks to a combination of poorly optimised game and god awful servers. 4 times died at Karanda, 2 times at mudster, f**king mudster....

Switch from Aad Sphera to staff so I can heal but what does the game do ? Switches straight back to Aad Sphera same when I use teleport, decides to teleport 3 seconds after I hit it so I teleport into a boss 1 hit kill

Not asking for much but if you're going to insist on hideous 1 hit kill mechanics from bosses at least remove the exp loss penalty until your servers and game can adequately cope with the mechanics because what I'm seeing on the screen isn't what the game is calculating as I've been well out of range of boss attacks and STILL get hit so something is seriously wrong in the netcode/visual representation of the game

It's really no fun losing hours of progress through no fault of my own because your servers cannot handle the load on them

+1.

Also, can you do horrible things to whomever decided that the nighttime AP buffs should work on bosses? Cause they're just not annoying enough with the shitty servers, they need the ability to one-shot too ;)

I am more concerned about Gem (Crystals) loss than xp that i can avoid with loyalty tears (+lv60 is worth), if you do bosses like some of us, you will know that no matter how you can be careful, crystals will break due to lag, falling underground etc etc, just disable crystal loss like the event bosses we had.

Boss alts they call em..

And get farmed like Mansha by other guilds you have war with unless you are a carebear.

I had a boss alt, the loot was hideous or none existent

But it says it all about the god awful mechanics when players advice is to use another character so as not to suffer loss on your main

What's a real class ? Valk ? I don't wish to roleplay a handicap thanks (look see, I can throw around silly quips too)

risk-reward

 

I'd agree that until the lag/desync is gone this would be a good idea. If that ever gets fixed it makes sense to lose exp and gems bosses are already insanely dumbed down from what they used to be.

I don't do bosses for this reason. Unless I JUST leveled and am at 0% EXP. I'de like to attend more bosses, but theres no chance I'm risking hours of work on a signle boss death. REMOVE EXP LOSS PLOX

Dunno if I'd say they've been dumbed down, it's just that their ap got nerfed (cause everything they did was a 1-shot) and the desyncs on them has gotten better, but they're still pretty ridiculous and we KNOW the code is in the game to make them not cost exp/crystals (the anniversary boss + the turkey boss both used this exact mechanic).

Been playing for a year. I remember when rednose first came out. EVERYONE was crying about the bosses being too hard. Dying and losing things, when people didn't even think to use the revive kits. Learn about how the bosses work. If you study them, it's extremely easy to read their moves and avoid attacks. Accept failure that you haven't quite learned or messed up and move on.

 

EDIT: put in that rednose was the first boss.

Been fighting them since the game started here, I know their mechanics but there are times where it doesn't matter how gud you got, you cannot read latency thanks to god awful server infrastructure

I understand the latency problems and agree that's annoying. Although I think that it's way too broad to just change the entire game based on that. I for one don't really experience much lag time with bosses. I'm guessing most lag people are experiencing with bosses is player effects and mostly on their end. I'm playing devils advocate here, but still, do think there should be XP loss. 

I am one of the ones who very much disliked that they took away XP loss on PvP because I knew "karma-bombing" would turn into an even worse thing, and it did. Just want to avoid carebear changes. So take what I say with a grain of salt.

how about no and make it double xp loss.

make bossgear HARD to obtain and force people to use their brain a little bit to see the telegraphing the bosses do.

You blame the game and it's servers while in reality it is all up to you. Learn the boss. If your pc can't handle 500 people on screen, choose a channel with less people. If you can't see the boss, maybe check the settings to see if there's anything you can do( turn off effects hint hint). Plan your grinding/ life skilling to earn money so you can buy/ earn resources or gear.

all you casual carebears calling for things to drop in your lap, gtfo. Make a god damn effort or just quit.
