I have been noticing alot of treats in this pvp forums lately about the concern of spam and saying no to broken skills, dont get me wrong I like those treats but.
Why do we even bother saying no to spam and broken skills when half the pvp community dont care and just wanna win with what ever it takes, this creates an imbalence that can make happy ppl like me frustrated and mad
We have made the legends to nerf ourself becourse we owned everybody on our klings and that was no fun at all.
We wanna say no to broken skills and spam but I ask again why do we even bother when half the community laugh at us and just use more broken skills and more spam.
I see some merit in the argument that broken skills need to be used as much as possible to convince people that change is infact needed. Can you believe that there are people out there who actually don't think spam is a problem? It blows my mind but some people seem to really need us to draw them a picture.
That being said, we run npc spam builds and over use broken powers to make a point but ultimately we are preaching to the choir. The people who need the convincing don't learn a thing because, let's face it, they don't know what's going on and were probably going to ***** about something else any way, while we are ultimately alienating our own fellow PVPers.
it is good to bother......just play the game. broken stuff, gimmick stuff, QQ stuff, mcleet pwnsauce stuff.....make of it what you will i guess.
Yeah I agree that using broken skills I a way of getting it fixed, if you remember to bug report aswell .
However this treat is more about ppl using it when everbody is aware of it, and the fix is otw just so they can win until the end. This is what imo have been ruining the pvp lately and will continue nomatter how many of us agrees to say no to broken skills and spam.
As long as there is injustice, whenever a Targathian baby cries out, wherever a distress signal sounds among the stars, we'll be there. This fine ship, this fine crew. Never give up... and never surrender.
I think the idea of having an ECM (or ECCM?) buff after a Scramble, Jam Sensors or Viral Matrix hit seems sensible. Make it work the same as with Photonic Shockwave.
There could also be a seperate effect for Tractor Beam (Repulsor)s, Gravity Well and Chronitons. Not sure if they should all go together under one category, but something like "Emergency Hull Polarization" or some such and we have covered all types of "spamming", basically.
If we're still worried about "Heal Spam", that's also something that could be covered, btw. Reduce the effectiveness of heals a little after you have been healed before. "Hull Exhaustion - 50 % to all hullheal strengths" (10-15 second timer and you can still rotate heals if you got a team healer, but more gets ineffective)
