So for anyone that doesn't know.... Kixeye has made a hasty rule based on Player Complaints about other Players that jump into a Sector and get a "Friendly Bubble" while they are Bubbling Other Player Bases. (Called 69'ing) The Players receiving these bubbles are pissed off because the Jerk that took their Infamy cant be hit back. So all the "Losers Of Infamy" got together and complained to Kixeye to do something and STOP the practice of 69'ing so they can finally "Get Even" with the Offending Player.
Kexeye in its First Ever call to arms, Jumped into Action and Quickly made Coding Changes to the Game based solely on the ramblings of pissed off Members wanting "Revenge" on the Offending Players and their tactics of using 69 in game play to avert attacks. So with a type of "Reverse Discrimination" Kixeye came up with a 10-Min No Bubble Rule. The rule basically makes it impossible for you to get a bubble for 10-Min if you decide to pop your bubble early. And "In Theory" it would allow these pissed off people to get revenge on the Offending Players for 10 whole minutes if they can catch the guy popping his bubble early. The Idea is to catch the player out of a bubble so they can suck his Infamy for 10 full Minutes.
Does the "New Rule" Stop 69's......NO ... The offending player is "Smart" and will only risk his Infamy if he knows he wont get caught out of a bubble. So he will simply have one or more of his buddies "Hold" his base for 2-Attacks which is 12-Minutes. If you increase the 10-minutes, then they increase the number of base holders they will need. The New Rule does nothing except promote "Base Holding" and Totally Kill "ALL Normal PVP"
Alot of players play PVP like me and jump into a sector alone in a bubble and then "Plan" the PVP attack runs. Then pop and see how many bases we can get done before we get caught. Bubbles are common in PVP Play. But the last time I got caught was right after the second base I did and then got Gang Banged by the whole sector for 10-Minutes while all I could do was just watch my infamy drop and drop.
There is NO DEFENSE to this New 10-Minute Rule..........
The 6+ guys around my base took turns while I did everything I could to get a plat out to fight with between attacks and that was useless. So I tried jumping out but with the Base Popups and Lag I couldn't get my CC healed fast enough to jump out before they hit again.
Don't get me wrong...I've been on the receiving end of a bubble from a 69 Player and its pisses me off too...that I cant hit back. But the 69 Players have not left the game and are still using the same tactic but just modified to "Holding" the base now. What Im saying is... if Kixeye is going to keep this New Rule there has to be some "Realistic Defense" to counter the Rule or its nothing but a Revenge Rule that doesn't work for what it was intended.
**Keep the 10-Minute Cool Down Rule if you need too, But also include a Cool Down Time Between Attacks so the guy receiving the attacks can defend himself. Or just delete the New Rule and go back to the way it was since it really hasn't stopped 69's anyway.........
Just my 2-cents
I may be old but I'm wiser than you..
And I still have no idea why I do this.
