#890844 'BLOOD' a possible idea for Grims intended removal of xp loss from pvp.

Posted by Iago on 23 September 2014 - 12:00

As doom said, I would place fixing an important part of the game before bug fixes.  After all the advertisment on the HCS site for fallensword states: "along your travels you will encounter fellow players who you can engage in battle against." 


As such, maybe just maybe can we shove everything else to the back burner and try and fix something that is quite important?


I don't see the problem? You can engage other players in battle. What is being discussed is the XP loss issue, not the fact PvP exists. :)

My thoughts:


Why was the XP loss even included in PvP?
I don't believe it's grossly negative impact could have been foreseen upon implementation. The frequency at which we're receiving complaints regarding random de-levelling from players in a troll fashion has becoming a huge problem, and is ruining the efforts of players who often keep to themselves and do their own thing.


I can personally understand the concerns coming from all sides of the fence (I'm a huge PvPer myself!), and I understand the legitimate reasons how XP loss can be used to punish players from certain actions they peform, however you must understand we need to make adjustments to game features which are currently resulting in player's efforts in the game being destroyed at the hand of one or more other player's sole intent on randomly de-levelling other players for no particular reason.


Again, we're interested in hearing all your concerns but also welcome constructive suggestions on how we can keep those things which make PvP fun, but won't detract too much from the efforts player's have made in the game. I can also confirm Hoofmaster has been concerned regarding this issue, and echoes much of what BigGrim has said already.


A massive thanks to all those who have provided some awesome feedback and suggestions already! :)

Ah, such a complex issue to find a solution in! I recall back on Gothador, players zealed from gaining toes and ears from killing other players. :) Perhaps that might add some more value to attacking other players, instead of the delevelling issue, which seems to have become an anchor point for trolls.

#821340 Upcoming Updates: What would you like to see next?

Lately I've been able to allocate an increasing amount of time on gothador, so I've been reviewing and planning a lot of stuff. Saying that, we would like to know what you would like to see released next!


perhaps a dark cloud? Or a raider / squig invasion? Have your say! :D

I'm currently working on the official FallenSword backstory, this should hopefully make it easier for you to find an ideal roleplay footing within the FallenSword setting. :)
