Default We need another "Monopolizing Scout in WW" thread

https://www.project1999.com/forums/s...ighlight=scout

Different names, same old crap.

Seriously Velious has been out for nearly two years people.

Devs claiming "its not classic" is B.S. Classic didn't have autofire programs and 30ms pings.

A majority of the community has agreed to a more civilized roll, similar to 8th ring roll, but unless the whole community agrees to it, the /random 1000 is worthless.

Sounds like you are projecting, this is a very common phrase.

whats the problem with Scout now? Are people successfully getting a turn in while others are not?

sounds like an exploit.

On the Agnarr server there is an Agent of Change who offers a Western Wastes instance every 6.5 days.

Harla Dar, Klandicar, Sontalak, Guardian Kozzalym, and Scout Charissa spawn in the instance every time! Great way to acquire the Scout Charissa piece or the Harla Dar Talisman which has Improved Damage III Focus effect increasing direct damage spells by 0-20%!

I was hoping to make a thread that was more positive before something like this came up. This is the current situation with scout.

A large group of people are attempting to force cooperation and force a random roll for turn-in rights. This has been successful several times recently.

[You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Last night, AG, Europa, Infernus, Savage, Awakened, and anyone else I might have missed, all rolled on the turn-in. Scout popped up the hill, the winner didn't notice but no one touched her. He turned in, we all participated in the kill, and gave him the disc. It was nice, no one was rude, and no one had to feel excluded because they don't have a 5ms ping, some autofire program, or a guild of people online in the middle of the night. There was no cheating, no trade window spam, no rude click spamming, no burrower trains, and everyone had a fair shot, and no one had to petition stupid shit. It's a 18 year old social video game, it's how things should be. You can actually make friends in other guilds.

The issue with this is that because turn-in winner is GM enforced, one person not cooperating ruins it for everyone there, and everyone has to fight that person for turn-in rights. The dissenting people are most often using autofire programs and know they have a better chance of winning if they say no. That also leads to the people there who wanted to roll just teaming up with the turn-in winner or buying it from them, because there is too much confusion to coordinate a roll at that point, with people logging in late or potentially trying to win the click battle and then rolling anyways and being selfish.

As long as it is GM enforced that click spammers have quest rights, it creates this unhealthy atmosphere that everyone hates and trolls and plat farmers thrive on. All scout rolls recently have been awesome, but it's very difficult to get every single person there to participate.

Make the right call, GMs. You have control to change this toxicity on your server, and the players are actively trying to band together to stop it.

inb4 "autofire isn't being used"

I am proud to say I took one look at Scout Charisa when Velious came out and decided to never touch that quest.

If you're paying these scumbags for quest MQs, consider this: The BoB or Lantern of Benevolence really won't make the difference in any fight. aka it ain't worth a dime, dawg.

PSA: ALL VELIOUS CONTENT WAS KILLED DAY 1 WITH KUNARK GEAR. ONLY YOU CAN STOP MQ!
