I've been meaning to give this game a try and admittedly this has made me even more wary, but I and the OP have clearly different ways of going about things. So long as I don't go wantonly ravaging the newbie areas this shouldn't be a problem I assume. I usually play the white hat anyway but If I choose to don a black one I'd like to know this doesn't happen except to the most special cases of Wushu-troll.
BTW I still feel for you OP, that's a tough sentence(if it wasn't ban worthy) in a game no matter what the circumstances.
You might not want to go on rampant pk or else you'll do the time ;/
If you're gonna murder someone it better be worth it.
Originally posted by smokefin 72 hours in jail. I killed 30 people and after that i died to 4 other players and went to jail. Now i need to serve 72 game time hours of jail. I literally didnt belive it at first, but its true. SO: I play 4 hours a day, that means that i will be released from prison in 18 real life days, IF i managed to be online all those 4 hours aday, after that i will be executed and i will have halved stats for 24 hour game time. So i'm back to normal in 26 days if i play 4 hours aday. Unsubscribed soon as i found out. This is clearly not a game for me, but carebares. I'm not going to pay for a game where i cannot function for 26 days. Also, there is no world pvp, only duels. Sure there are guild wars, but wtf... who gives a fuck about guilds, im not even in one. So there is no pvp for me if im unguilded. I can say that i really enjoyed the sandbox and graphics, but this game is mucking retarded. Thanks for reading.
Clearly the OP is killing lots of people and maybe even from his own school, people he goes instance with and have a very smelly repuatation till no guild wants him. So now a selfish bastard who only cares about killing people who are maybe even defenseless think that he should not feel some pain after he was caught by a constable.
But you were open world pvping. What you might be complaining about is consequences for your actions. lol

I didn't look at Age of Wushu yet, but if there's a criminal ruleset around PvP like this I think I might jump into it. Now I only need to know how to wash the 'bad karma' from the crimes committed ;-)

Just bust out of jail with other jailed players, it is a mmo afterall, talk to your cellmates if you dont want to be in jail and devise a plan.
And as they said, do the crime, do the time. Read the digital manual to the game for future reference to see what your getting yourself into and how to play the game.
Originally posted by smokefin So you think 26 days of afking in real life is good punishment for killing 30 players?
72 hours is not 26 days, leave your pc on not hard to do.
It's PVP with consequences ehich games seem to have forgotten these days, makes things alot more fun dont like it dont pvp in zones where consequences are applied.
I forget what the timers were like in ultima but im sure it was longer than 72 hours

you mis read, its an ingame jail for ingame actions like killing people in towns etc and being caught
@Reizla it drop with time if You dont go above 8000 ( if I good remember) , You may pay beggars with tradeable currency amount of points depends from amount of moneys
in chinese server if You dont have criminal status You dont have to be online
So yeah, you senselessly killed people, sounds right for the jail time.
See, mindlessly killing players =/= skill. People who really think its fine or even 'fun' really have a screw loose. If anything, the fact you can be caught would make it more interesting. When your thinkign running around ganking people is a sign of being good that shouldn't be punished, I'm sorry but I just don't have respect for you at all.
PvP should ALWAYS have a reason for being done. If its 'open' then there should be penalties to fit that in order to make the act of brainless killing punishment have consequences behind it. I think 72 hours jail works just fine for this.
And as a side note, I actually do play on a PvP server on a good majority of the MMos I play. The only games I hesitate on are Open world pvp were players like the OP can typically run around ganking lowbies who stand no chance for 'fun' and can get away without a mark against them in some dillusion that it takes remotely any skill. Least in faction based a bad player doing that on lowbies its at least teams making it have some sense even if its pathetic.
Without a 'law' system in place, it would just be people abusing others killing them with 0 reason at all. Having those 'laws' in place is what stops the game from becoming a griefing zone, much like laws in RL keep order and allow the world to be a much better place.
Originally posted by DarkfallFanatic Am i the only one who thinks the penalties should be more harsh? You can easily kill 1-4 people without going to jail. Furthermore, you can avoid bounties by not ganking a person. Jail is soft in this game most criminals do 40min jail time which is nothing and actually a blessing in disguise to go eat or go for a smoke.
It's harsh enough. Look at this way. You kill a guy he res's. He lose about 2 mins of game time. He places 10 silver bounty the other guy loses 20 mins. He places a 100L bounty the guy loses 5 hours.
I think the purpose of the system is to get the offender out the way long enough for the the offened to get what they need done.

Originally posted by Rayshe There is also a Execution system where they can Permakill your toon don't forget. You should be happy with the slap on the wrist you got.
lol not perma kill I thought the dame the first time I was on AoW death row. You get a 3 day nasty debuff I think.
You are using this statement wrong.
A carebear is someone who is all "Lets all just be friends! I don't like PVP its bad!" etc. Like the carebear tv show?
People telling you that you need to man up because you did a crime and you gotta do the time.. that's not being care bear, in fact if anything YOU are being carebear complaining about game mechanics.

What a great game, teaching immature people, like the OP, the consequence of breaking the law and being a social outcast.
I highly recommend this game (though I don't play it myself because I don't like how the make the Asian clothing looks in there). Very educational for the kids so people don't grow up to be a jerk like the OP. All parents should get their kid to play this game imo, lol.

Sounds much like how Silkroad online used to handle PK karma in the past. Only there it was a bit harder sinc eyou had a life-loosing debuff as long as you had karma (yeah, that system was a real bitch ). Not to mention a high drop chance upton death so there were always players around you to (try to) kill you...
Looks like I'll wait for Age of Wushu and play it at launch. Might be a good game to play for me ;-)
