Disable Rift/Electromagnet prior to releasing t3

Post#1 » Thu Nov 19, 2015 1:52 pm

I posted this on the bugtracker, but was redirected here. Since it looks like t3 release is not too far from now..I suggest disabling magnet/rift until door los is fixed. If keep doors are not following the regular los rules, then anyone attacking the door will be sucked into the keep and slaughtered. Since siege is not being implemented just yet, then this will just make keep takes impossible. I have seen plenty of people rolling engies/mag's with this idea in mind, and although it sounds fun to do for a while, it's just going to get repetitive and people will avoid keep takes even more.


INC : omg newb liek get a healer to spam aoe heal from outside and ur g00d liek lolz who would die to 494390239 destro/order/guards inside a keep l2play.

Sorry for screwing up your plans baddies :>

As hilarious as it would be the first time, it would get old quick. I think disabling rift/electromagnet around the keep will indeed be a thing. No reason to completely disable 1/3 of the reasons people play magus.

Disabling an ability based on where you are in the T3 lake? Devs can hardly code the RvR flag application properly, let alone expand, or even place completely new RvR lakes in a PvE zone. I highly doubt the devs can easily disable a sole ability near a keep door. if is it possible without too much hassle, however, I fully support the suggestion.

Disable it in general.

Wow, holy ****. Like a sodding knife to the chest.

The reason the RvR flagging doesn't work properly is because the check for your current area is still done during transition phases, when you have a bad position value with a zero Y component. This means that for zones which have their RvR area on the top of the map, you'll flag when logging or zoning into those zones.

This was low priority and has been fixed locally for a few days, but if I'm going to be judged as incompetent for not fixing trivial stuff immediately, I guess I need to change my priorities.

And yes, I can disable abilities near a keep door.

Premade attacks the door.

Premade gets rifted inside.

Premade slaughters enemies on the first floor, while the mdps from their realm get inside from the postern.

Your realm now has full control of the keep's first floor.

And this right here is why no one should take you seriously. Your ego is so up your rear that you think your "premades" are god's gift to the mmo community.

Edit: woops I forgot to add. Pounce bro?
