Slap your whole tangent on SBS is pointless. There is no purpose to this other than you preening your e-feathers.Slapshot1188 said:Unlike some... I don’t report speech I don’t like.StaalBurgher said:Very well you can do you wailing on whining on here... I still have my popcorn.
*lol* at Slapshot having the other thread closed.
Like this one. Pointless and adds nothing but no need for a mod to point that out.
Hmm... I think he was moaning that it would be too hard on griefers!Slapshot1188 said:That’s just it. Nobody in the game can log out. The theory is that your character will remain in the world as an OPC. That’s why this will be a griefers paradise. And not even just griefers. Remember this is a territory control PvP game with looting. Wait until Joe The Blacksmith logs in and finds out what Seamus McCrotchface did to his town and all the people in it over night while they were sleeping. Mr McCrotchface isn’t going to care if his spark only lasts for 3 months. That’s 3 months of tears.Renoaku said:Yeah that kind of system is flat out stupid IMO, a griefer should be able to log off the same as everyone or the game should be made like rust.StaalBurgher said:My understanding is that after being killed once you can't lose anymore spirit for 2.5 hours. So you cannot get camped.
The direct counter to griefing is if he did kill you 'many' times he would lose exponentially more play time when he gets killed/imprisoned. So while everyone will lose a little play time due to getting killed in general, a griefer will lose a lot more. This balances the practical reality that he is imposing on your playstyle.
You also have to take into account the OPC feature, which means a griefer can never log off. He can't enter a settlement and is vulnerable 24 hours a day. Unlike in other mmos where a griefer can log in/off when it is to his advantage.
And cant enter a settlement this is stupid, the only way this should happen is if a griefer murders lets say 20 people and a person survives to tell the NPC merchant which acts as the police no survivors no penalty for a griefer.
If your going to have a type of Anti Griefing system at least make it realistic if there are no survivors there is no one to tell the tale.
You think an AI or using scripts is going to magically turn your logged off character into something close to a live/thinking human being? No way. To me that’s always been one of the more far fetched concepts this game is built around.
