Players abusing the distrubtion methods

Recommended Posts

xGPpjMt not sure if you can see this image, first time posting a picture.

 

So today me and my friend were grinding the dungeon trying to get Merry Potter secret technique. And we went to F8 the universal dungeon to grind it. 

 

After we killed the boss when the loot was about to drop, the team leader changed the loot distrubtion method to leader distrubution or heroic auction. Which means if the item is not heroic, whoever picked it up will get the loot. So he pressed pickup and changed the loot distrubtion method, then he collect the item in the loot box. Then he quit the dungeon right away, and I forgot to screenshot his character and his name.

That's pretty shitty thing to do. Guess the only thing to do in these kind of situations is to blacklist those people (+guild) and know never to do runs with them.

Or let their guild leads know,and see how the guild handles it, instead of nixing and entire guild over 1 bad player.

NCSoft policy... Has to do with the drama it starts I think? Also can cause people to be blamed for things without the entire context.

Called witch hunting. Every game forum has this policy. But with reporting people not working at all, I feel like this rule should be lifted for the time being???

 

Either way I've seen this happen way too often. They're able to get away with this for the time being :/

Standard policy in most mmo not to name and shame on the forums word of mouth on the server usually is better to take care of those people so when  their reputation is well known people don't group with them.

And there is way too many AFK players in the level 45 dungeons, what we do is that once we see someone afk we just leave the party and leave the dungeon

Even most sub reddits have policies about starting witchhunts. Its not NcSoft its a pretty standard practice that makes sense.

I don't think you can kick people in F8. unless they are offline.

I can't stand the looting method. Once I joined a party in a dungeon and saw how it worked I stopped playing and quit the game

The loot distribution abuse makes playing with pugs too risky and therefore is a gamebreaking exploit. This is something that should've been fixed in today's patch.

But you don't care to change it, right? Knew it, but keep appreciating. That helps.

Honestly a bug like that should not make it into the game.

It's not fixed ebcause NCSoft doesn't see an issue with it, there are previous threads on this and someone got a reply from a GM who almost encouraged the action.

Yea, being able to change the loot rules mid-run is dumb.  Hell, you can even do it mid-fight in this game.  Just wait until the boss is basically dead, change it to leader loot and voila, free gear. 

 

How a game that's been around this long can still be accommodating this kind of thing is very confusing.  Why would they let the leader of a randomized group change the loot rules whenever he wants?  This is just such a basic oversight it shouldn't even be possible from a company that has any experience designing MMOs.

It's not an issue in the Asian version, it's always an NA problem. Even when I played Archeage the original game devs were baffled at the ways NA players would grief one another just for some gold and said they never intended for it to be abused/used in that manner and surprised that anyone even thought to do that. Most people think it doesn't have in Asian game servers because they use their SSN but that's only for bannable offenses, things like being an ass just doesn't help them progress as much as actually putting forth effort does.. and generally they aren't assholes outwardly - and I say this from experience playing on the CN server for B&S.

Even if so, they've released games in NA before and should be aware by now of how things are.  Changing the loot rules whenever is just a ridiculous thing to allow people to do.  It's like adding a "steal everyone elses gear" button to the party interface, and then saying "I didn't think anyone would actually use it" when people start complaining.
