He said no to PvP protection as well and look where we're at!

 

 

I already posted about this before long time ago and was regretted due to possible abuse issues

I've always liked to know how this can be abused? Frankly, this idea would promote PvP, maybe that's why it's been opposed so far. The decision to keep the PvP averse players' risk to being offended at a minimum is a weak one. There are numerous ways to set this up so that it could NOT be abused. It's the same fearful rational that was made when the Stomper achievement was introduced - only BB and Ladder attacks counted after a mere 24 hours. A quick example to avoid abuse here would be to make any xp gain minimal compared to xp gained from game critters. The BB works as the deterrent. Comparable reasoning asks, who still levels off normal critters when champions give 2-3x more xp for the same stam expenditure? Players seek the most efficient way to use stam, don't they?

 

I don't buy that this decision is final from Hoof. The game is always evolving. Players feel this idea can be abused because they see blatant solicitations in bios to trade 10 stam Prestige hits and Hoof decided this game abuse is acceptable. He could plug the loophole if he wanted but appeasement prevails.

 

I'd like to see Hoof spend time developing game aspects, like this suggestion, which have been neglected since the bitterly received Seasonal fiasco. He's spending resources on attracting new players by adding a mobile platform while the loyal game base is left wanting. How long I wonder??

If the bounty hunter can lose XP for lost battles I see no reason why they shouldn't gain XP for won battles.

I'd like to clarify here that I don't disagree... I've asked many times and always got shot down.

person at EOC getting naked on bounty board  for a lower level player to hit all 100 stam attack and gain EXP to level up thats how it was explained in my post before it got delete and thats why I said it was rejected.

 

I had a post like this and it was shut down , I do agree having a minimal xp gain would work but its not up to us, like you said hoof needs to decide

You are assuming level difference between the attacker and the bountied would give an advantage. It doesn't have to be that way. As long as the xp gained from attacking a player on the BB is reduced to a much lower xp gained(say10-20%) than from killing a game critter, the BB will continue as a deterrent while giving players PLAYING the game a slight xp gain.

 

If the bounty hunter can lose XP for lost battles I see no reason why they shouldn't gain XP for won battles.

This quote exemplifies the reason this idea should be implemented. Again, the developers need to do some developing!

Color me curious. 

 

Someone on the bounty board has their bounty accepted. 

 

As the hunter clears the bounty, the hunter can steal experience as well as dropping the targets experience.

 

If the bounty hunter misses, does said target get to steal some experience from the hunter?

Why make it just for the BB , make it on all hits. I see it making even more "want to be bounty hunters" but no more pvpers on the board.

Winner gains xp on the Bounty Board; this being either Bounty Hunter or Defender. This really should have been implemented some time ago in my opinion. And as for abuse, who cares, it's rampant in the game anyway.

 

Cheers.

I 100 percent agree with this, PvPers are lway at risk of losing tons of levels and xp so why can't we gain some ? What will be the problem for levellers ?
