TLDR; Give Old Bronze Coins a timer before they can be picked up by anyone other than the player making the kill.Currently when Old Bronze Coins get dropped they are immediately pickable for anyone. Would it be possible to add the usual timer during which the drops can only be picked by the person making the kill? (Without changing the guaranteed drop on death of course.)I'm suggesting this because a growing group of people on nightscream like to stalk those who are fighting (especially when it involves mages/ranged) to quickly pick up the EC & run away to safezone the moment one of the fighters gets killed. In my opinion this sort of dropstealing adds nothing of value to the gameplay and it would be a good idea to prevent it with the default timer that other drops have, if they want to steal EC they should earn it by scoring the kill.Yes I'm aware nightscream is pvp and these people can be killed however taking out a second opponent who is just trying to run out of range is difficult. Especially considering the genie of the thief will be completely ready while the one who just came out of a fight is likely to have it on cooldown. The runner will have full chi & everything out of cooldown while the fighter likely has to deal with a lack of chi & lots of things that can't be used right away. With the EPW flying speed getting out of range takes all of about 2-4 seconds after which it becomes impossible to catch up, hardly something that encourages pvp. Oh, and in response to the "Hurr you butthurt go QQ moar" comments that are surely coming: I play a veno, I can shoot down flyers and run fast, this is much less of a problem for me than it is for most other classes. I still think it's a good idea to change it.
It would be great if the people voting no could leave an explanation.
No. It would ruin half the fun. I pvp there on my ea / seeker, and i make a perfectly resonable amount of ec. If they steal your drops, kill them. Pretty easy solution.And yes, i know they will ad / ig / expel you, and run away. But thats a genie problem, not a drop distribution problem.Besides, when im bored and dont feel like pvping, i log my barb and go steal some drops
What's the fun in taking someone else's drops? You might "bored" but you're also being a lazy person thats a bother to people farming if I put saying it like this..Also. Ok, so a vit barb with shield and stuff is going to be killed by one person before they get to sz... goodluck?Anyways, having this would be a great add, more people would actually go there to farm. I want it added <3
Lazy? I pk 95% of the time, and use my barb the other 5% and you call it lazy i call it free ec. If somebody dropped 10k ec on the ground without a time limit would you wait to see if they wanted it? Or would you simply take it? Ns and the OBC are fine the way they are, if you dont want this to occur use the buddy system. 2 heads are better than one
