camping and sniping ARE abuse.


 

 

 

Camping is a playstyle, the sniper (I assume you mean the dragon) is not cheating. The dragon does not offer you free kills without having to do much, it requires you to have good aim.

 

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

Go snap your disk then. We don't need players like you b1tching about everything in this game because you can't outsmart the player using it.

They got a PW? Figure out a way to kill them without getting near them. They got a Sniper? Don't get in their LoS. It's really not hard. I hadn't played in almost 3 weeks and I had no problems outsmarting players with PW's.

Has somebody linked you to the definition of "cheating" yet? I didn't think it would take too long.


I did about 12 times.

I thought the sniper took some skill to use? Even the the dragon requires some form of skill to use. Do you have any idea what cheating is? Cheating is abusing a broken game mechanic (ROF, The airwalk glitch) Cheating is not using power weapons since they are a PART of the game.


Abusing RoF is not cheating, since it's part of the game as well.

ROF is a broken game mechanic. When Quick Boom was OP i could've said that its not OP because its part of the game.

No one has been banned for using an in-game mechanic, though... that was my point. On the other hand, airwalking and wall hacking are not established game mechanics.

 

Blindfire is broken as well, but ND says it's not a widespread problem. If the leader is corrupted/greedy in the first place and has set questionable rules, then there's nothing you can do. You cannot change their rules, but you can stop supporting them financially.
