    Abuse Report - Trapping mobs

    Many of us remember the days when mobs could be 'trapped'. Years ago the AI failed to make mobs run around trees, and they just got stuck behind those, and one could shoot the mobs, without getting hit. This was seriously 'not done', and people like myself and others avoided this as much as possible, since it was not allowed.

    This was considered 'GAINING AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE' and was AGAINST TOU.
    There were many support cases about it, and people got their accounts locked , temporarily or permanently.


    Today we have that same problem again....
    I hunt a lot on Rextulum, at the oasis, shared loot. Sometimes people with low dps guns show up, and ask me if they can hunt alongside. For the benefit of the game, and for some fun, I happily agree with it. Sometimes it's really enjoyable.


    However...
    All too often people show up who do not ask, who are sneeky, and try to take advantage of hunters like myself. They realize ubers dps is much higher then theirs, and understand that if they hide behind big guys, with their puny guns they won't get hit, People like myself will take the damage, and this way they are able to 'hunt bigger mobs'

    I consider this 'GAINING AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE'.
    The only difference is that you trap mobs behind a person, rather then behind a tree.

    Yes it is shared, anyone can hunt anything. Sure, I like to team up, no problem whatsoever, especially with people with similar dps.

    But when cowards purposely shoot the mob someone else is on, even in wave1 where the mobs are real easy, and there is plenty of mobs around for everyone, they purposely shoot the mob you are on, with the only goal of saving on their own decay, and putting it on YOUR repair bill... the least I can say is 'this is not done.'

    Are there not Rextelum that interests you outside the shared loot zone? If not, then there should be.

    certain loot theories propose that you get armor and fap decay back in loot later on with the current system... similarly, better buffs you have vs the little guys may give you unfair advantage there too? In some ways it all balances out somewhat.

    If you are the highest dps there, maybe you should try to find a better place to hunt where folks with your dps hunt too?

    It's kind of similar to how you see folks at Icarus that are way overpowered all too often complaining because others are hunting there too... rather silly. It's a big virtual universe.... lots and lots of other places to hunt.

    I still like my lonely little corners of the worlds where no green dots are anywhere nearby.

    Its a shared mob...anyone can shoot it. Don't like it, go elsewhere.
    It's like going into pvp and complaining about being shot.

    i know how this pain works because i use melee often
    here goes pro_tip

    1) "just stop shooting rex after some nub shooting behind ya, rex will run into nub kill him(agro change)"
    ▶ we happy
    2) "nub wearing some mid~highend(L)armors(he can tank rex), ditch him(just stop doing anything like u went AFK he will be gone less than 30sec)
    ▶ we happy
    3) "nub keep chasing you with purpose, teleport to corner of SK wave
    ▶ you can't see nobody in " Nearby " lets grind begin again
    ▶ eventually we happy




    i will put more tips later
    keep make thread clean
    this is not an auction

    Decay is calculated as part of loot. To demonstrate, agro some mobs, let them hit you a bit, then run into someplace where they get turreted and you will get some shrapnel even though you never fired a shot, so I think your concern is moot, unless somehow the noob is getting items with MU that you are not getting.
