    Ok devs, we have a problem here...

    You cant cast EV's, nature's fury and can't sic your dragons inside to get people in a house, but you can cast a collossus? Something just isn't right about this....

    Sounds like just your typical QA oversight. It'll be fixed next year sometime.
     
  3. The difference is that the Colossus is house-broken. ;)

    Quit hiding in your house, out of reach only to step up far enough to try to blast or kill the one passerby. Seriously, if you are RED or factions, FIGHT.... Don't use your house to keep you from being attacked only to step out enough to cast on passerbys when you think you can drop them. When there are 6 of you in the house, and 1 person outside.

    We have a simple rule in our guild. Don't fight from the house. If you can't get out and fight like a man, leave.

    She is both red and in factions.

    Was funny watching you get chased out of the house tonight.

    The Collossus is fine. There HAS to be something to combat the eternal house fighters. *ahem..cough...COP guild on Sonoma*

    I am fine with removing this ability when any agressive action whatsoever by a house bound player kicks that occupant to the curb.

    Well doesn't that just suck. I sure hope is was only a temporary. Pretty stupid to get banned over something that decent QA should have prevented. There should also be a warning put out on the login screen if it's going to be a banning offense.

    There shouldn't be any way to cast into a house. Houses should be safe sanctuaries.

    Unless you choose to have fighting in your house.

    If you're hiding in your house and fighting, its only fair that the people you are attacking outside can cast on you and drop summons. Quit house hiding.
     
  10. This is about as lame as it gets.:thumbdown:
    Some GM needs to be shown to the unemployment line.--------->
    IMO this is.....
    No different than casting a flamestrike on a house fighter.
    No different than casting a flamestrike from a house hider on a passerby'r.
    No different than casting a summon's from the house.
    Terrible.
    Hope you submitted a gm review request.

    House hiding sucks too. If you aggro and you are in a house you should get booted. That's a long time PvP complaint.

    This isnt about house hiding...this is about allowing a creature to be cast inside a house when they removed the ability to do so with spellweavers (nature's fury), mage's (Energy vortex's),& Tamers (dragons). make it the same across the board...allow it with all or remove it with all.

    The Colossus, didn't chase me outta the house nor did I die to it. At best it was mildly annoying and easily avoided. They are kinda stupid as creatures go, perhaps they take on the intelligence of those that cast them?

    What is amusing is the fact you say I am house hiding. I use the house as a defensive position when I am in stat or circumstances here are not conducive to fighting in the field. What is your excuse? I saw a variety of characters in your guild *ahem...cough...WAKA guild on Sonoma* fighting from the house. Funny thing too, Widow, most of them were yours.

    I am 100% fine with removing it all.

    It should ONLY be dis-allowed if aggressive actions taken by someone in a house boots them from the house. There should be no middle ground on this issue. Allow all or dis-allow all WITH the aggressive character boot.

    Were you casting for hours on end?

    People can cover a harrower with bag balls/candles or block the star room from exit and a GM never shows up yet you get caught? :thumbdown:

    Including spells? fielding? casting summomed creatures from a house? shooting arrows? discording? list goes on and on...

    Sure, I can agree with that if it is equal and across the board for ALL aggressive actions. I can do things other than dismounting or shooting from the house while in stat ...like paint my toenails.
