I guess you're not familiar with the word EXPLOITATION?
Just becauseyou believe it's so, doesn't make it true. In any MMORPG, these type of 'tactics' are considered exploitation and against the rules of the game. Going on roofs or other high places so the mobs can't attack you, getting them stuck in a tree so they can't attack you, or taking advantage of pathing problems, are ALL considered exploitation. To believe otherwise is simply ignorance.
Let's see what is and is not "exploitation":
Casting bind/root, debuff mob run speed, DoT, and walk away leisurely. (i.e. kiting) Tactic or exploit? Depends on which game you're playing.
NIN can go an entire battle with aggro, without getting hit once. Yet because this is (apparently) an Official Sanctioned Strategy, it is deemed not to be an exploit. OK.
Mage/RNG used to be able to dance in and out of the spellcasting range of IT worms, and solo them. (apparently they still can, but it's much more difficult) They could solo
a mob that would decimate a FULL PARTY of characters their level, if fought "legitimately." This is not an exploit?
Don't give me the whole "It is obviously considered exploitation" garbage, because they (the creators of various MMORPGs) can be totally arbitrary with what they consider an exploit. It's only an "exploit" because they say it is, nothing more.
Rather than have players trying to guess whether or not they should be allowed to do what they are doing, the creators should just FIX something if it's broken.
Squenix made the rules, and I'm playing by them. If they don't like the results, let them change the rules; that's perfectly within their power. Edited, Sat Jan 24 03:48:27 2004 by redvenomweb
