People keep mentioning that now, since there is a base miss chance + the need to have your victim have good off/deff for you to gain, one can't skill up on animals. But why is this?
Don't animals still gain off/def? Or is it that they do, but you're "sparring buddy" is going to end up dying someway way too soon for you to be able to grind him up.
Can you paste a link to where someone said this? I think someone was being incoherent, and got misunderstood.
I've been hunting alot of monsters. Jman weapon skill and advanced missile skills wasnt that hard.
I think there are some perfect world scenarios where clan sparring can result in far faster skilling. I saw one combination of pcs that looked like a 3x rate improvement. I saw one short lived group that looked like a 5x improvement. I havent seen them last for very long though. They require a mix of pcs with a whole lot of playtime and willingness to be helpful when the senior pcs arent getting any gains at all.
The general idea is that if your target's off/def is higher than your off/def, you will be more likely to gain off/def, whereas if your target's off/def is lower than your off/def, you will be less likely to gain off/def. This mechanic, to my knowledge, doesn't affect visible skills at all.
There are animals with high off/def; generally, if an animal is considered to be hard to beat, it's also going to have high off/def. Things like beetles, rantarri, jakhals, and such have high off/def.
qwerty: and if someone is unexplainably hostile to you for no good reason. Chalk it off to being an asshole and slit their throat

qwerty: All in all, in my observation. OOC relativity comes about cliques, then hostility. As in, players might not care if you offed their previous character. But they might like and include another PC whom they talk to more often ooc.

qwerty: But again. You cant control it. Cant prove it. The nagging suspicion will ruin your gameplay. I just try not to worry about it and react to the gameworld events as if there is no ooc influence. Doing anything else makes for a really shitty experience

qwerty: You cant stop people from talking ooc. And if people talk ooc, it's bound to happen that they cooperate ooc. Or ... or not. But you wont know and therefore, you'll suspect. And this suspicion will kill the game for you.

qwerty: 4/5 times someone rages against staff, staff had nothing to do with it. It's just number one suspicion people go to.

delerak: I recently accused staff of some nonsense. They showed me the log and I felt embarrassed. It's hard to shake the paranoia of days gone by when you were slayed by staff for going afk and using a script to forage wood.

mehtastic: I posted it on the Discord server a long time ago, but unfortunately I don't use Discord much anymore. If you can get a Discord invite you can get the code, probably.

mehtastic: I am back on Discord. If you want a copy of the code dump, join the shadowboard Discord and ask, or DM me: meh#0490. Feel free to DM if you feel addicted to Armageddon and want help detaching yourself from it, too.
