Can't flee in the heat of battle!

Discussion in 'UHall' started by ~Antzy~Pantz~, Sep 9, 2008.

  1. This crap is about to drive me insane! I kill a few people, then get ganked by all the stealthers lurking around... go get a quick rez, pop back threw the gate and get rezed killed, yay! now I can't flee cause they attacked me! Makes no sense to me!
    Someone needs to seriously look into the fleeing system, its lame!
    I'm done venting now, flame on!

    Well, one thing that can cause this is Reflect Physical Damage that is on armor. Even if you don't attack first when the damage is reflected it makes you the aggressor and thus, give that lame response when you try to leave. Not that this is what happened to you, I just hate when that happens. They really do need to fix that damn message when you die. Ghosts should not suffer from that heat of battle. They need to remove it when you die.

    I have always thought that this was a funny message even though I see the purpose to it. But, when you think about it, the only time that you might want to flee from battle would be when you are in the heat of battle, right?
     
  5. I always thought it was kind of stupid to get the message that you can't flee from battle when you're dead. The battle is literally over if you're dead, so there's nothing to be fleeing from.

    I always thought it was funny they ask the question without giving you the options to answer....

    "Wouldst thou flee during the heat of battle?!?!"

    "Uh... I'm trying to leave, so I guess so, yes."

    I instinctively always say yes when I see that message, unfortunately the game doesn't listen to me :(
     

  8. Lol thought it was just me that talk to my screen screaming "Yes I would flee in the heat of battle"
    Guess it was never the correct answer as I never got past :(

    My favorite saying is:

    "Yes I'd flee like a screaming schoolgirl, let me get the F outta here" lol.


    Oh well, never works hehe.:D

    I just thought ... wouldnt that be nice if it DID give you the option, but with a caveat. If you chose "yes" then you can't come back for 10 mins, or you get stat loss for being a coward, or your char turns bright yellow with a big WUSS sign over their head, but you can at least LEAVE!

    LOL that's too funny!


    But I always think this torks me off about Fleeing..... But how silly is this..... I come home and find a headless one outside my house.... NOW I don't ATTACK it.. but it attacks me..... and my character being an archer AUTO Fires at the dang thing..... NOW because of that I can't log out and get on my tamer which is why I came home in the FIRST place!

    Oh, don't think only archers have to deal with this! Unless you are in war mode, you will auto-defend no matter what your template. Even a non-combat crafter will punch that headless! (or in the case of MY house, Orc!) WTH? You used to be able to hide and cause this to not happen. I remember clearly logging in (when all houses were public) to Brigands in my house. I would ban them real quick (or die trying and go rez at the nearby healers!), hide or invis, log out, and right back in with a different char. When they messed that up, I don't know, but I HATE IT!

    Haha, I love it :)

    Of course if you run once too often, I think it would be cool if you had a "sponsored by Nike" tag appear over your head afterwards too ;)

    Now theres a good marketing plan! Nike can pay EA to fix the bug, and in return we can get tagged by Nike. And next thing you know UO will be in the Nike commercials :p

    This is like all the other unintended consequences of fixing what other
    said was lame in the game.

    The developers fix someone else problem in the game, and the result has to be !, a problem for you.

    I find it always interesting that people complain and complain about this or
    that about this game and they have the most wonderful solutions for this or
    that occurrence of the game.

    Has anyone thought it is better just to accept the original game they started
    with was the best and it just has gotten worse because people complained ?

    Please remember if the developers ever do fix this fleeing game logic bug for
    the ghost, you may not want it to happen to those opponents you killed.
