Karma bombing vs large non optimized rotation?

69 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

So I have been thinking, why do so Many people Hate karma bombers but never talk About the people using 2-3 rotations for 1 rotation they cant Even do on spawntimer... how come people never talk About that? 

And for the Record i Will karma bomb the crap out of a Player that is doing that kinda rotation but leave if they are doing a rotation on spawntimer or 1-2 packs behind it  :) 

how do you guys Feel About it? And Yea im an idiot but that is just my princible:)

It would literally stop this karma bombing in it's tracks- or the very least delay the process as most people would regain a decent chunk of their lost karma by the time someone returns.

My standard reply to "spot taken" is "server taken"!

There is no such a thing as a too large rotation, I simply chose it in accordance with my ego, thank you very much! :D

karma bombing is very scummy beheviour. You should stop. But I agree with you. I always take a rotation where I can reach every mob pack right after spawn. The spot is way easier to defend like that. And if I see someone who tries to hold a spot clearly too big for him, I treat his mobs as fair game. But usually I just attack him, cause he is wasting space.

Pking is a feature intended in the game. Karma bombing is abusing a severe flaw in the karma system. Big difference there.

I mean, if one karma bonnet is going to stubbornly mess up one rotation, why can't the bomber just take all of em to make everyone else's lives equally miserable too?

I mean. My witch can eradicate main spot sausages with seconds to spare, if one git comes and starts kill stealing, I'm more than happy to make up the lost mobs by taking them from B spot

How do you know when it's Karma Bombing?

A: I run into an area already camped by a full party OR they want to take my spot

B: I run into an area already camped by a full party OR they want to take my spot

 

They look exactly the SAME, but certainly NOT

A: I can't kill everyone and become "The Karma Bomber"

B: I destroy the entire party, they apologize, and kiss up and ask questions.

 

This is how you prevent Karma bombing.  You simply get high enough GEAR and it MAGICALLY GOES AWAY.

The way I see it now, is that karmabombing is a feature too. Who wins in the end? it's the karmabomber. 

Should this system change? Yeah, probably.
Do people need to party up more and be less of an ass? Yeah, probably.
Should you be able to take away every single bit of grinding a new player could do? Not a good idea.

Can people swallow their pride and simply look for another channel? Not a chance, sadly...

The day they removed xploss in PvP without Abby sort of counter weight, it became adv intended feature.

Honestly, if you can't clear the mobs you are claiming fast enough, then you need to STFO as I rotate through clearing mine as they spawn. If you are clearing efficiently- much respect and carry on.

Because the devs decided to punish pk'ers this much. that's why it's an intended feature, you can LMAO all day long... but you're only seeing it the way you want to see it. If you could read further than your biased brain could, you'd notice that I would like to see it changed as well.

No I am seeing it from a logical standpoint. If you don't think that there is a flaw with someone being pked and losing nothing and popping back up instantly or reappearing within 30 seconds just to die again and lose nothing then that is whats wrong with this community. You die you should be punished. Since they took away the xp loss from pvp deaths they should have removed the tear usage when dying by another player as well as respawning the dead player in the closest town rather then the closest node. 

 

This stops karma bombing (somewhat) as the player who just lost karma gets some time to regain some of em rather then straight up dropping to red.

Because Karma Bombing doesn't really exist.

It's a made up term to describe the situation.

 

It's actually the same thing as:

I PK'D THEM AND THEY CAME BACK

Refer to my above post. 

Refer to some of my previous statements.

YOU HAVE NO BASIS FOR YOUR ARGUMENT

You would be better of discussing a realistic system, NOT a system to just dump on players.

YOU DID NOT ADDRESS: Players could massively exploit the entire game by sitting at 0% exp (INCOMPETENT DEVELOPERS)

YOU DID NOT ADDRESS: Players can get Karma back in less than 12 minutes

YOU DID NOT ADDRESS: The massive problem of class imbalance and GEAR imbalance

 

You want your own little play ground to harass others.

/close thread.

On the flip side, if you Vulture/Gank/Pounce  an unsuspecting player to PK them because you feel self entitled to a spot,  then you're also said <your naught word here>.

 

/reopen thread.

So when I get a character to 58 and grief a level 52 off a level 52 spot so I can farm easy money, I need to cry about Karma bombing so I look like the victim?

.. nah, not in my blood.
