some 1v1s can last for yearshow will u not end up with 5 rounds each lasting between 15 and 30 minutesyou have a point and the duels do get annoying as fck but there's no other option to make the event viable for gms to hostimagine that gms and the 8 players?(atleast) will have to stay in that arena for 2-3h just because some 2 people can tank really well and have good oportunities to killif u want this to get over i am still up for the ring restriction and limiting sogregardless of that+1 for the main idea but it has many flaws on the other side of 'options to end a fight'
Yes this is a wall of text. Read only if you partake in playoffs, it's worth the read.I have to submit to the fact that I will be SoG combo'd w/ Sleep the entire fight, so I'm camping full defense (including magic ring) and I'm still struggling to survive. This goes on for a good 5 minutes because of a constant-unbreakable lock with small moments where my sutra got me closer to the opponent. You all know what happens next...In conclusion, I think that a good option would be to completely remove the dueling aspect in the 1v1 playoffs. This in return would eliminate the constant-defense camp, because people will be forced to try their hardest and not rely on a duel to win their fight. Granted, this suggestion being implemented would LENGTHEN the event's overall, however, I think that quality>quantity is how this event is meant to be won.. Not by waiting out the clock.
There is plenty that can be done to make the fight's not have to go to duel. SoG's should probably be 5 max in duel on that note. Restrict RingsReduce amount of time that sins's tackling slash lastsLimit amount of times that certain skills can be used in the actual match? (Could work, may not, idk)I am sick of class advantages in this game, and sick of defense camping. I have played Perfect World for a very, very long time and I have never experienced the things that happen on this server anywhere else. There are ways for this all to be prevented, however because the excuses such as "I've cash shopped so much for this, this suggestion can't happen" are all too common.This is why there won't be good genies for players who don't have extreme amounts of money, this is why sins' can camp defense with 80 defense levels and one click later be 2.86 GoF and win every match in the 1v1 tournament, this is why people are all rerolling and donating to be super-casting wizards with spark combo's..There is so much that could be done to balance this server, but I feel like the server is used to class skill-advantages and is used to gear-advantages and won't accept anything that may hinder their ability to play.The main point is to make it so that duels are removed, or matches are made fair so that duels aren't necessary for victory.
no hating on you or anything, but doesn't that contradict your playstyle? you are a good wb nonetheless but what would had happend had you not used a magic ring and defence weapon during this fight? Considering I didn't use any defence at all during the fight and duel , doesn't that play in my favor?
As I stated above, there are clear class-advantages in this game. There truly isn't a way that barb can win against a ranged class that has a constant-barely avoidable lock. You were maximum range away from me the entire fight, and again, I did not land one hit on you the entire 7 minutes that our fights lasted. If I did not have a defense weapon, nor magic ring on, I would have died the first time you used your combo on me due to the lowest magic defense in-game. ( Pro Tip: APS barb actually has MORE magic defense by default than a full R8 barbarian, due to light-armors.. Excluding the fact you can get magic reduction & +% on rank 8 )Are you telling me that you wouldn't need to camp a purify spell weapon versus a sin that doesn't get instantly locked by you?
You didn't understand my point, I'm just telling you, you are saying that we shouldn't camp defence, yet you were camping defence (because you had no other choise) i'm just stating that it contradicts the purpose of this thread since you want no defence camp? if I understood your suggestion.
