    A while back the development changed it so that people who attaked someone could not just run into their house and house hide. Now one of the new issues is boat hiding. On the Atlantic shard their are several boats along the shore (north/west) that people are using to do exactlly that. So I would suggest comming up with a solution to this problem, although it is not an easy task. I would suggest though that if this issue cannot be resolved that you allow people to use their houses to create fairness.

    Lol

    A few losers are using boats because they lack pvp skill and it bothers you so much that you wants the Devs to waste precious time on it and/or revamp the entire house/flagging code?

    That seems a bit extreme no?

    Re:

    Isn't he simply asking that an Aggressor cannot enter any Boat?.. Just like it happens with Houses? What's so preposterous about that, that got you so agitated?

    Let's not talk about that Preciousssss Dev Time and where it has been dedicated in the Glorious Past.. rolleyes: I don't think such an issue would occupy them for long..

    I wonder if hoping onto a boat operates the same way as teleport. I wonder how many people know about teleport hiding, heh. Thing about house hiding is you have to break line of sight, it isn't just the 100%. Teleport hiding is different than house hiding.

    Anyway, honestly, who PvPs by the water? Yew Gate isn't close to water. Might as well get rid of the ant holes and server lines first. And the guard zone. You can't put ships nearby any major spawn region, except maybe Oasis? Or are you talking like, outside Fire or something?

    Re:

    If I attack someone and they hop on a boat and flee, it would be ridiculous if I can't get on my boat to give chase.

    This is not a hypothetical situation, I have done this in the past.

    Sink the ships. Or put ships of your own next to them and fight from your ship.

    Re:

    this would never work as the pirates and the merchants in the high seas add on are blue and red in fel and you flag on them when attacked..

    sorry. i suppose if someone runs away and hides in a boat just walk away.. find someone else to pvp with.
    not really a game breaking issue.

    Re:

    Yes it will work they just need to implement the same fel housing rules on boats, it doesn't count toward npc's only players.

    If they jump on a boat kill them they are idiots -

    unless of course they sail away heal and come back.

    :gee: EASY jst pace your boat next to theirs so they cannot sail away,

    OR better yet scuttle their boat and it wont be able to sail.

    If it a old boat they wont even know its scuttled and they will be toast.

    this is a really weak tactic but weaker if you cannot kill them.

    No this is more the 40 boats a guild has just north west of fel yew moongate on Atlantic, go take a peek and you will see the shore is littered with them, they are used for boat hiding.

    Anyone can board a scuttled boat in felucca. If you don't like someone hiding on a boat, get your own boat and scuttle theirs.

    Boat hiding and house hiding differ in one critical way. You can't break into someone's house, but you can break into someone's boat.

    Sounds to me like some pvp'ers are just plain lazy.

    As stated go and scuttle them.

    :mf_prop: stop whining about it and turn it against them.

    And Yew gate isn't PvP it is a bunch of ganking whinners who complain if they die that you hack and cheat, and NONE of them prob actually play fair.

    Re:

    So Yew Gate isn't serious PVP and most of the players there Hack? Labelling much? How dare y-... Ehh... Wait. I actually agree! Damn it! >.> But Boat PVP sounds and looks just as silly IMHO.

    Well...

    Who needs to peek?

    Isnt it only considered hiding if someone is looking for them?

    I say remove all the guard zones in fel and get rid of house rules. This game keeps getting more fake with every "fix" like these.
