Arctic no longer a PvP mud
« on: October 12, 2017, 10:32:46 AM »
I heard that the game went to a no-pvp model? Is this true?

Sad, sad, sad.

Hoss - Rise takes back all of the bad things we said about you.  We didn't know how good we had it.  Our sincere apologies!  Except your thinking that making all weapons 2d6, that was retarded lol.

Lolz,

TBH, I had a grand plan to lower overall damage provided from equipment and add it back in to a skill-shot ability system. Glad to see the mud still running though, I guess.

Sometimes it feels like nobody who actually has anything to do with this game uses these forums.



This is one of those times.

Can we keep it real?? I almost considered playing when I heard the pk damage reduction had been changed... but 25% is still a joke. That crap needs to be removed entirely. I'd rather have somebody only lose 25% of items on death. The pk damage reduction basically screws up the foundations that arctic was built upon, and it opens up the game to way more problems with balance; ie how the hell can u deal with a globed nobash cleric. If you want to be carebear just make people drop a random 25% of their gear, that way pvp battles can still happen but clans can live to fight another day.

See, that is where your unfamiliarity with the game comes to shine. The foundation of the mud isn't your PK. It's fairness and balance. Each subsequent revision to the core code was to make classes and gear more balanced, to make the game stronger and to persevere throughout the years. It has at that in over 20 amazing years. The Overlords saw what a small clan did with it's win at all costs nonsense and found that careful balance was being destroyed by players, not their efforts. So by the looks of it, they changed PK to prevent further damage your antics was causing.

How do you deal with a nobash cleric? You wait until it runs out of spells! You learn to play the game better and bring a better balance of classes to the kill. Ever heard of sustain? No, I didn't think so, but longer fights are more fun. Your four round blitzkriegs of stabs, frags and bashes aren't the meta anymore. Learn the new one and quit whining.

If your unable to rise to the challenge of the new PvP meta, then so bet it. Your not exactly going to be missed.
