    Now lets show some love for the pvp and fix all exploits

    There are few years now since some avatars are exploiting the lootable areas. I came back in 2016 and since then i jump in lootable areas from time to time and this is what i found others doing:

    1. Border mining

    Years ago when you were leaving a pvp lootable area you had 30 seconds to get killed. Somehow it got removed. Now you see players with 100hp that are mining only near the borders and you kill them after they left the lootable area they wont get looted or lose the toxic shoot. This can be fixed by removing the good minerals near boarders or just add the 30 sec time back.

    2. Low life mining with Flimsy helmet (for less life regen) and self damage with rocket to prevent getting looted

    For those who don't know let me explain how its working. They use the helmet for low regen and if you kill a guy that's bellow 15-20% he won't lose the toxic shot nor get looted. Also some of them got rockets so each time they spot someone they just shoot in the ground and charge tp chip (you have like 10 seconds to heal them or they leave).
    I find miners doing this quite often. Thing is MA its warning the users for this and some players that used and i reported stopped doing it. But its very annoying since from time to time you go in a pvp area and you find a guy and you have to heal him to shoot him first. Why do we have to do a min damage of his health to loot an avatar ?!

    Here is some fun screenshoot. My friend was inside the pvp on Arkadia found a guy and he was using rocket to keep his life low so he asked me to jump in his face. All that damage deflected is from his rocket. Here is the screenshot i send to MA



    3. Self damage with rocket then suicide from falling damage

    This one is rare but still you find players doing from time to time.

    Good on them. I have read heaps about PvPers using exploits to harass people who go into PvP, but this is the first time I have heard about players striking back.

    I realise it may well be an exploit and I am aware that it is not compulsory to enter PvP - you choose to do, so choose to take the risks.

    I just cant find it in me to be upset about those players who have found a way to protect themselves & I find it funny that land pirates may be getting upset

    Or just get rid of PvP loot altogether. That would be a nice fix for the problem.

    Everyone who goes into PvP, both PKers and miners alike, disagree.
    The risk involved with lootable PvP builds an inherent protection for the markup of the minerals mined there, producing profitable mining. If you remove it from the equation then suddenly the markup dries up and the miners lose the ability to take risks for the sake of making profit.

    Could not agree more!

    PVP = risk for reward...

    Space is no different, Land PVP zones are no different.

    I actually must disagree with you. While there is significant room for improvement, there is currently no significant reward for space travel. This could be corrected by introducing space mining and more mobs with high markup compositions which would significantly increase the instances of space participation.

    Wow some new( for me) glitches from pvp cool.its funny to see why old pvprs come out with these glitches to forums now.i wonder how many years these ppl hv used the same tricks on others in the past?i saw few months back in ark forum some brave souls telling community how some glitches worked so others could have a chance from exploiters.ever since ark radar is visible these ppl are comming out with glitches.how wonderful.less pyrite and other resourses means less profit eh?.lol in your face exploiters.keep it up low lvl miners drain all ark pvp4.

    Lootable PvP in a RCE, is the best thing ever, and unrivaled..

    It gives you adrenaline shots.

    Now it's pretty dead, that's sad, but fortunatly it looks like MA want to revitalize it, good news.

    The worst "feature" here (by the way, I'm not even sure that it's suposed to works like this, or if it's kind of bug)
    Is the fact that you can't loot someone which HP is below 50%...

    Tell any gamer that in the game you play you have to heal people first in order to kill them, and it's guaranted big laugh..

    Thumbs Up

    got to love the hypocrisy (not that it should not be fixed)

    when EST unlimited use / attribute repeatable missions / vtol skill exploits took place, it was "smart people using their brains" and "it is your duty to find opportunities and use them while they last"

    when it is others doing similar stuff, they should be stopped from doing so
