Pardons should have a delay before removing a murder count.

    Seeing red people stand in GZ waiting to be atacked, then when someones atacked they use pardon and go blue...whack the other one(s) is guardwhacked. Exploit? Saw it happen today at yew gate and dont think theres another explanation. (?)

    Just make it so they can't call guards before 10 mins after they use the pardon.
    Now I do not like this blue noto PK's in town so I would laugh too.:lol:

    When someone attacks them or when people start ganking them?

    Simple fix - if flagged as in combat, cannot use pardon. Much like you can't flee from battle thingy.

    Incorrect.
    #1 The issue is with someone else flagging the red and then the red going blue. The red is not the one whos flagging.

    #2 If you are not the agressor you can recall/sacred journey and flee all you want.

    They just need to make them with the soul stone use & message. "Can only be used in a safe log out location" Fixed with current game mechanics, code smarter not harder.

    That sounds like wasted developer effort. All it does is encourage more GZ hugging. How does that benefit the majority?
     
  13. I come to post this as a reply and found you beat me to it. Super easy fix.

    Actually, what bothers me more is the fact that whoever developed it and the supposed Q&A never caught this.

    Rather disturbing.

    Someone would be in my office, first thing in the morning to explain how they didn't catch that.

    Probably happening when someone targets an explosion, it doesn't make the aggro until the spell actually hits. Same thing if someone is grey, and then unflags.

    Maybe change explode to flag aggressor once the spell is targeted and not when damage is dealt? Seems easier to just not precast explode.

    Maybe they could change pardons to where they update like faction ranks or at server down.

    I.e. I have 5 murder counts. I use three pardons. I'm still red until server up, when the pardons update, giving me 2 murder counts and turning me blue.

    Well we were discussing this in length the second we heard about the pardons, even before test center. Was on test center before going live and in neither our discussions or on test did we even think about it or even discovered it.

    Fixed, sorry, drove me nuts when I saw that lol. It should have been realized as soon as the idea of pardons popped into someone's head but once again something is released before it's really ready :sad4:.
