Ents costume and PvP

209 posts in this topic

Posted

I'm surprised really that there's plenty of people whining about the very small bonuses like 10% experience given by the cash shop costumes but almost everyone seems fine with the Ents costume? I've barely seen anyone mention it so far.

For those that don't know, the 4 pieces set bonus will hide your tag permanently while wearing the costume; basically a permanent semi-stealth. There's a reason with so many people uses it in other versions of the game.. because it gives you a big advantage in PvP.

Should it be removed for our version?

i as well see this as a huge advantage. but who will buy it if its removed? does this mean we get it with nothing and earn one with the effect instead of buying?

how can they get around this? just kill the item?

I actually want to try this. never got the chance to wear it in KR.

it has pros and cons. heck if people worry so much about being ganked why not wear it? no one knows your even there..

but no one really pay's attention to there surroundings even with the costume hiding some one..

if you cant see a player coming at you with there name tag, who's going to see a big glowing bush coming at you with one?

Dyes. You are blended into desert with light yellow dyes.

That custom should NOT be dye-able.

I don't believe it makes that significant of a difference. I wouldn't classify it as something unfair.

100% love the ghille suit. I'll get every costume and only ever wear this. My favorite. Must be out on launch.

yeah yeah KK. I need to find the cash shop build the ent suit was in so we can guestimate the release for NA.

EDIT: the ghille suit was released around march 2015 and launch was in late 2014. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's too long.4-5 months with no ghille will be painful. 

@catherine  sorry saw your post about the ent and assumed you were in favor of it. my bad. You can still get in game furniture that give you lots of xp buffs and grinding buffs. (no cash shop required) 

The thing is with the ent armor. It only works once. Once someone is looking for it you can't fool them

Playing KR I never felt like players that used it had any unfair advantage that made it simply impossible to counter. I actually think it's kind of neat and will add another element to certain pvp encounters, it is afterall not always that difficult to escape momentarily and come back knowing what to expect.

In the node wars we do on KR, it doesn't affect our pvp. We pay attention to the mini map a lot. Similar to how you would in a Moba. However when we first started using ghilli suits it did seem like it was more advantageous but now we don't think it matters really after using it and having it used against us. Thats just my guilds experience.

If it gives an advantage, even a slight one in PvP the costume bonus should be removed. Costumes should be 100% cosmetic, or have things like 1-5% luck. 

Waiting to get yelled at by people who wanted to use it.

Presence gets removed, isn't this just your nameplate getting removed?  Not much of an advantage since you achieve the same thing by kneeling/crawling anyways.  If I remember right, it does hide you being a red criminal so that could be handy there.  If you have good eyes, should still be able to spot them with or without a nameplate anyways.

You can turn your name tag off in the Game options too. So what does it matter? The suit just greys out your name. I think this is a troll post.

Hidden Content

This is tough. There are so many non cash shop items you can get that  give you better buffs. Why worry something so simple with a nice mechanic that makes things more interesting.

What makes it OP isn't the fact you're visually harder to see while wearing it, it's the hiding all ID part. If you're wearing it you won't ever be punished outside of in game mechanics. Can't add the player to your KoS list and you don't know which guild they're in. Somebody could be griefing you for days and you'd never know who it was or who they're affiliated with, if anyone.

When someone wears this suit and kills you, what does the system message say about who just killed you?

I don't want it removed, just from the cash shop. If they made it into an accessory, or even added it as a set bonus to future or preexisting sets then it would fine. People can't claim I'm taking away their precious skill, but they'll have to work for it.

You can't turn your own name off for other people though.

No one is going to pk you for days just because of the ent armor. Once you know there is someone around wearing it you will notice it. Its not hard to spot.

 Also

When someone wears this suit and kills you, what does the system message say about who just killed you? 

good call out
