Feature: Swapping Positions if Trapped

What is it?

It is an additional option for a trapped character to have a chance to still get out of the trap.

If someone receives PvP damage, the server checks whether this character can move to at least one of the squares around him. If this is not the case, all characters standing on one of those squares are marked for him with a beige square around him. Now, the trapped character can walk either by cursor or by mouseclick on any of these fields and will thereby switch positions with that character.

Exceptions:

- If the trapped character was aggressive against one of those blockers (he attacked first so got a yellow or white skull for it), he cannot swap with that character for 60 seconds since the last damage.
- If this character has already swapped with the other character, they have to wait 5 seconds to swap again with each other. They can however continue to swap with other trappers.

Delays:

- We will start with a standard delay of 1 second on a swap (plus the usual walking speed delay when you walk).

Other things:

- If one of the fields is blocked by a stack of characters, the top character is the one that counts. If the target is allowed to swap with him, that top character will be pulled onto the targets field and the target will enter the stack all the way down.
- If the target stands on a fire field, he can still swap, so yes, he will pull his trapper onto that field.

What should be tested?

- Does it work correctly?
- Are there ways to abuse this?
-- Check especially for the fire field issue
- Does it actually help the right people?
- Are the delays ok?
-- Check especially the speed for several character levels. We do not want to make it too easy for high levels to get out, but still possible for low levels.
- Does it break anything else in the game?

Fixes Sat, 11:15 CEST:

- Swapping speed is very fast --> Now set to 2 seconds for the swapper and still 1 second for the one being swapped with, continue testing with this.

Fixes Tue, 12:30 CEST:

- Passing level / quest doors not possible.
- Swapping into a stack does work only not if the top creature is not a player character.
- Boxes should only appear with characters you can really swap with at that moment. This will also let the client know when to not do snap backs or early walks for you.
- Swapping someone onto player created magic fields will destroy that field.
- Swapping ability only stays on until you swap the first time. You can only swap further if you also receive further PvP attacks on you.
- Standing at the edge of a PZ while being PZ-blocked will also count towards a trap.

Fixes Wed, 20:00 CEST:

- You can now also swap with all summons and all monsters that can be pushed. Additionally, like on Optional PvP you can now generally push all summons, even if that monster would usually not be pushable.

Fixes Fri 9.10. 18:00 CEST:

- The above fix concerning monsters now works with the new client.

Fixes Tue 9.14. 13:30 CEST:

- Fixed the trap detection that did not activate if the victim stood in front of an open door to a house he may not enter.
- Swapping delay slightly reduced because of the delay on item use (like potions and runes)

Suggested improvements

After testing this for a bit, I am a bit concerned that knights are going to fall victim to getting dragged into traps.

I was testing with Benja northeast of Thais and we were going back and forth a bit. It became apparent though, that there are tons of areas where a mage can simply walk into an enclosed space, swap position, lay down some magic walls, and then kill the target.

As knights are the only vocation that need to be up close and personal to those they are fighting, it seems like we are going to fall prey to this sort of thing more than other vocations.

Interesting, you'll have to show me how that works. As I now understood it, I can't quite follow because if a mage uses mwalls to keep a knight at a distance, then he can't shoot the knight either because of the mwall. Or how does he do it otherwise? And how does this not apply to mages as victims? Yes, they can shoot back over a distance, but they also have a lot less hp to cover their back.

I was white skulled but noone was attacking me, therefore I could not switch. All I had to do was firebomb myself, and I could switch with anyone around me even though I was the one causing the damage to them, not the other way around.

Also, it seems a bit strange that the boxes appear around people you cannot switch with. I think a box should appear only with those you are able to switch with.

So far people have been saying that the swap speed is too fast. The 5 second delay for the same character is nice, but really its just too fast when you go through different characters.

This I agree with. There should either be a box only around those that you can swap with, or a different colour box around those you can swap with.

@ boxes: Thank you for that feedback, I also agree with this, I will talk to our programmer on monday how hard it is to transmit this more precisely to the client. This would also remove the snapbacks when you try moving into one you are not allowed to swap with.

@ swapping speed: It is currently set to 1 second delay, I'll increase it tomorrow to 2 so we can try it then. I was also expecting this which is why I am prepared to fiddle around with that delay to find the best suitable. It should of course stay below the 5 second delay you get for reswapping the same pair or we would have to increase that delay too.

Agreed swapping speed is waay to fast, also.. I still don't like the idea of people being able to manipulate the system with their own team.. again I know it's hard to figure out who is who.. but I could show you some things I thought about with it..

One for example, you have a guy trapped everyone attacks excepts those diagonal.. have the diagonal guys attacked (trapped ofc) by their own team.. and attack outside.. they can then swap with the actually trapee and he will have a side step paralyze..on command, which doesn't give the guy much time to react before being pulled yet again and possibly stuck in a paralyze trap.. xD

I was gonna mention it's hard to tell them apart but having the puke-coloured-orange one not appear when you can't swap with a person would be much better.

Unlikely but we just discovered it's possible to trap people with MW's/friends and kill them with a FF like the old traps did..

Or a random AFK'r, or a botter... etc etc

Trap/FF under yourself and swap alot.. :s

Talking ABUSE!

Ok, tried my specialty: passing level doors at low level abusing new features.

Easy by using the swap thing: You just swap positions with one high level that stands in the door. Then you swap again with one inside, and you are trough.

After Borr tried with the level doors we also gave it a go with quest doors. It is also possible to pass them with characters who should not be able to using the swap feature

Good catch Borr..that definitely would have needed a server reset if it hadn't been caught.

Something else, we did not all agree but I think this is something that needs to be fixed:

http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/7676/holeisnotrap.jpg [Do not look at external websites. Your account could be hacked.]

A hole is not considered to be trapping you.

In a way that is true, since you have a option to escape: go down.

However, there certainly are holes that you don't want to go down into, because they lead to a certain death.

I kind of agree with borr on the hole idea, i'm thinking about holes with "no return"

ps, you can almost see my name on the level door screenshot! It's blocked

- Check especially for the fire field issue

In a narrow passage that is being blocked by one person, you can block yourself in with a mw, put a field rune under you, and then swap with the person blocking the passage.

One thing to note, if you do that swap right after you put the field rune down you will get a ws.

So what is that delay on using field runes before you get skulled?

Remember the case on Antica where one knight stopped a whole army for a long time, sacrificing himself but giving his friends behind him the chance to log out after their skulls were gone? It happened at the tunnel to the ghouls, on Edron.


Anyway, with this new feature, people can just swap positions with the knight and go past him.

I think this qualifies as an example where the feature does not help the right people.

More details on lvl door:

http://img52.imageshack.us/img52/9320/uo0009w.jpg [Do not look at external websites. Your account could be hacked.]

When you switch with character that stand on lvl door you get there but character struck there, and get heavy graphic lag. Then if high lvl open the gate again the low lvl already standing in sqm with lvl gate can move inside.

About the fire field issue: You can abuse it to drag innocent (afk, for that matter) players on a fire, so you can kill them without getting a skull.

we found 2 bugs with the swap feature.

First bug is with field rune and pvp damage, or lack of pvp damage.

Don had me trapped, he put a fire field under his feet so he could swap with me.

He made the swap, so I was standing on fire field and blocked where I could not move.

I was now taking the damage from the fire field, I was blocked, but I could not swap with don.

----------------

2nd bug. swapping into a stack.

Same place, don and mastro were at a ladder, I was trapped. I saw the orange square and clicked on it.
I could tell the client was trying to do the swap, but I kept snapping back and could not swap. The only thing different from other swaps at this place was the fact it was a stack.

--might need to double check this, I can not be 100% that I had not caused either of them damage, so that 60 second block may have caused this.

Something to think about....

Imagine a long ally filled with people, for example at a quest like Pits of Inferno.

Everyone is peaceful, nobody attacks.

Then two abusers show up, they attack each other. Now they can quickly swap themselves all the way to the front of the line. Nobody will be able to stop them by swapping them back, because they would need to get attacked by someone else first, which would require coordination, equals time.


My opinion:
I don't think this negative side effect weighs up against the positive effects in the very same ally where some innocent players would be trapped... but if a solution can be found it would be nice.

we just learned something new about the pullswap

If you get the aggressive (skulled) person trapped between those he attacked he won't be able to swap to get out. The 60 seconds did not start counting until everyone stopped attacking the skulled aggressor.

So this is how you need to do it to get a high level trapped.

Found a failure in the system.

I may not happend too often but it certainly can happend. Here is an ilustration:

http://img409.imageshack.us/img409/2688/trapswap.jpg [Do not look at external websites. Your account could be hacked.]

It happens like this:

Consider Arcnagett on Secura as player 1, Tenente Arcnagett as player 2 and Arcnagett as player 3.

Player 1 and 2 manage to get player 3 trapped as in the picture.

Then, player 1 attacks player 3, being the attacker and getting a white skull. Player 3 cannot swap positions with player 2 in this case!

Player 3 gets angry and attacks player 2, being the agressor and getting a white skull. Now it's just impossible to swap positions with player 2 because he was the agressor!

Player 2 then attacks player 3 with player 1 and wins.

This can happend on any 1 sqm corridors, consider the same situation happening from up and down directions.


NOTE: When skulls are gone the swap option is still avaiable until the order is such that attacker is far from attacked. (in this case the final order was 3 1 2 (from starting 1 2 3))

Note 2: didn't post it on Tibiapic because a pic of me with 3 chars logged in could cause trouble, lemme know if i have to edit it and host there.

Not sure if this is a bug, or if it's intended, but I was trapped by 3 other characters, one of them was skulled and attacking me, and I could switch with the skulled character, that would just spoil traps in normal PvP combat. The swap should only work on people that weren't aggressive towards me


Yours,
Sheefoo

Why not? It's not important who attacks the victim, as soon as the server detects he is trapped and under attack, he can swap with player 2. That is how I understood it. Your test results tells you different?

    I have just now changed the delays for swapping. Now, the one who activates the swap gets 2 seconds delay while the one being swapped with gets only 1 second. Do you think this will help with the situation you described? I can set the delay for these to pretty much anything, so give feedback on both involved concerning speed.

    You know that you just insulted Stephan?

  • Originally posted by Enyx Deathweaver on 27.08.2010 19:39:15: Concerning fire fields

    Yes, I was aware of this. If you think this is really abusable (also as in the example someone else gave with FFing yourself to be able to swap but then being skulled for it), we can set it so that any field will be destroyed when you swap someone onto that field (just like on Optional where mwalls can be destroyed by people walking onto them). I'll have this done next week.

  • Originally posted by Borr Henceforth on 27.08.2010 19:52:55: Abuse!

    Thank you, I will have that fixed next week.

  • Originally posted by Borr Henceforth on 27.08.2010 20:27:19: A hole does not count towards a trap.

    Actually, I don't agree that it should. It is a way out, just as any free field is. You may also not want to walk into the direction of the free field, yet you can. If PKs manage to drive you to somewhere where your only exit leads to somewhere you do not want to go, then they did well, they really still need the chance to get people, and if you do not want to take this route out, that is your choice. The important thing is that you still have a choice, that is the main thing this feature is supposed to bring.

    I am not sure I agree on this either. I am not too fond of people being able to do this so well as they can now. If a team has skulls and tries to hide until they wear off, I find it fair that there is a way to get through, or at least that you need more than just one guy to block people off for a while, and that this blocking off does not work for as long as the guy lives.

    Well, first, there is a 5 second delay to swap with the same guy again, so maybe it was that, then there is another delay if you hit him first, are you sure that did not play in?

    > 2nd bug. swapping into a stack.

    Actually, I found this as a bug yesterday and had it fixed before I started inviting you all, so it should actually work now (unless our client programmer gave me the wrong install packages), please check again and also tell me which message you get if it does not work.

    Fully agreed and was intended that way. If you are in a trap, you will always have to chose to either fight or swap, same goes for trappers: They can decide to either maximize firepower, then they have no chance of swapping you back, or to try and play the swap game with their target, but then they need chars that do not attack him.

  • Originally posted by Arcnagett on 28.08.2010 05:15:33: Found a failure in the system.

    I don't consider this a failure, it is still a choice player 3 has. If he decides to attack 2 as first attacker, then he decided to fight and not swap. It was in his hands and he failed, not the system. I fully support the possibility to still get people really trapped if you manage to make them take the wrong decision, this is the smallest example of how this can work. If you manage to trap but not attack a knight for example and he loses temper and does berserk, perfect! You got him and he failed!

  • Originally posted by Samerian Sheefoo on 28.08.2010 10:01:59: you can swap with white skull attacking you

    It was intended this way. You can only not swap if you are the aggressor, but of course you can swap with your aggressors.

    Hmm, there is something that came to my mind when I see this swapping-dance. It's not really connected to PvP combat, but the same system could be used to avoid another game weakness. Since anyone can trap players standing next to a depot locker with just some parcels behind, why not to add the beige square if player is standing on an orange floor tile next to a depot locker and the nearby spot is not free. This way the person standing next to a locker could swap with the one trapping him and escape easily.

    I know it's not really on topic, but why not to fix another problem at the same time?

    I'll ask about this, but with low priority. The problem with it is probably that the guy you swap onto the depot field might get access to your depot, depending on the exact timing of the swap. We'll check that technically.

    That is not enough, I tested this with a spawned fire. There are wildfires everywhere in Tibia, I don 't think you want to delete those when someone abuses them to kill someone without getting a skull. The screenshot I gave earlier was on the fire of the trolls camping east of Thais. You could also test in the Amazon camp, and on many other places.

    There is 1 important question I need to ask.

    If you're trapped and you go to swap with someone, you drag them onto your square but before the swap starts, you had to use your hotkey to heal with a potion. Would the healing cancel the swap? If so, we need to not make the swap take too long. 1 second may have been long for situation where the player is getting attacked by 1-2 players but most of the time, when you are trapped and are in war-mode, you are getting pounded and the 1 second delay would be just enough time to use the swap feature.

    Just tested it, the same goes for stairs. So a trapping team can have some people upstairs, some people downstairs, and all the victim can do is go up and down. He does have a choice indeed: stay and be killed or hop up and down and be killed. There are places, especially in towns, where a lot of potential targets are, where this can be abused easily. I don't mind if it is changed or not because this is also possible on the current servers. But exactly this kind of trapping might occur more often in the future, just because it will be one of the few possible ways to trap someone, and out of those options one of the easiest.

    Is it possible to just stop players from taking damage when someone swaps them onto a dangerous floor tile?

    P.S, if the depo swap isn't techinically possible how about using the house kick spell while inside a depo to get out? Or finally letting players push others over parcels and crates and junk. Would also be nice if players were prioritised over any junk under their feet when dragging them onto a neighboring square..

    I took down your proposals on my internal proposal collection. If I see a good time to mention these ideas, I'll have it considered.

    In my opinion it shouldn't apply to war mode characters in situations like this:
    Let's say there are teams A and B and they're in war mode. 8 players from team A trap 1 guy from team B. Now, they can whether kill him or keep him trapped (unless he attacks them). If they don't attack him, he will wait and logout. If they attack him, he will escape from the trap. Why should he be able to escape so easily? As far as it's good when it comes to PK, it destroys the war mode. Trapping is part of the war and if you're affraid of it you don't accept war mode, simple.

    I did notice for those wondering if your spamming a spell or potion and try to swap, it will NOT work. You'll simply get some sort of snap back effect.

    Anyways after trying it out a bit more today, the more im either liking it or not liking it. In the sense if im on a common hunt and I get jumped by a bunch of people im loving it, but if im trying to trap a high level with a group of 4 other friends, I begin to hate it. besides the fact I can never trap him unless he fights back he would easily elude us and run off before we can deal a finishing blow. Not just once will that happen but multiple times if not all.

    I for one question, how am I suppose to kill that guy if he will escape 100% of the time? he escapes far too easily imo, because he can swap with anyone as long as he has been tapped by someone. and since this also applies to war mode characters so even if you managed to trap one of em he will less easily escape as now everyone is attacking him instead of a few.

    im kinda crossed on it as you can see, but if anything it should be weaker between war mode characters then to non war mode people, but cause if you do accept war mode your signing a contract that you agree to fight and to be killed.

    I don't know if I am being crazy, but to me this system kind of defeats the whole purpose of knights in PVP Combat. Knights need to be nearby in order to deal damage, and that is basically one of the main reasons for traps now that you can attack through battle window. However, now that will be gone. Knights will be left to chasing down oponents like a headless chicken while being unable to heal effectively (e.g. potions) while walking due to their delay. Knights have been complaining about being ridiculously underpowered for years, and I feel that this will underpower us even further. Not only will knights lose the ability to deal some serious damage with spells like exori gran on a trapped target, we will also not be able to "stonewall" a team out at the expense of our own lives.

    Yes, knights will have another disadvantage: They cannot summon.

    Why?

    Soon after this system is launched, people will realize they can still trap people as long as they leave one open spot next to their victim.

    Those who are trapped will realize they can swap out if they fill those gaps - so they will summon something to complete the trap and then swap their way out.

    Only mages can do so though.

    I have nothing against knights blocking the 1 sqm path as long as they are in war mode (if there is war mode on) or if they are main characters and not noob chars. People often use low level chars to trap many places and it's just not worth killing them all to get to the enemy. So, main chars/war mode chars blocking places is okey for me, doing the same with noob chars is unfair.
    But as far as there's no problem with war mode chars, how to recognize whether it's a noob char or a main char blocking the path when there's no war mode? Anyway, the current situation on Test Server is unfair in my opinion.

    Pallies and even some high mglvl knights can do that too with mwalls. Additionally, if one square is open, you can pull a trapper onto that field and thus break the line. There are still options.

    Concerning knights as blockers:

    What if we were to add a spell for knights called "stance". This would basically mean that the knight makes himself unmovable and unswappable for a certain time (similar to mwalls), but he could also not perform any aggressive moves during that time.

    I can however only introduce this spell when we can also put a higher delay on it than it lasts so that there must be a few seconds during which that knight can be moved. That would basically enable him to use himself as something similar to a wild growth / mwall.

    What do you think?

    Oh....now that might have some promise.

    It keeps some of the protection ability in place, gives knights some greater use in PvP, but is not going to break the swap system.

    I think the main thing that people have always been concerned with when it comes to traps are the use of low level garbage characters. This would hopefully negate the use of said characters while also keeping some of the known PvP tactics in place.

    Awesome

    This adds to the value of a knight, without making him overpowered, since it does not benefit the knight himself, but just his role as a blocker.

    @Craban:

    It would still defeat the purpose of stonewalling. A level 200 knight has over 3000 HP, however even with this spell he'd only be a "stonewall" for a few seconds, thus rendering his 3000HP - which is more than enough to block Orshabaal for example - useless for most of the time.

    My issue is that while mages and paladins will be able to use their strength to the fullest - assassin stars and exori san/con are ranged, same with mages's spells - knights will once more be limited to losing their two biggest features - exori gran and the high HP. One way or another, the hammer will strike knights even harder, and without something to cushion the blow, you're definetely gonna look into a lot of angry knights, who have lost their healing, their magic abilities, and now will also loose their (already limited) PVP abilities.

    that has potential, my first thoughts are that it would give knights a purpose and would be a realistic way to help with defense.

    We just tested some defense scenarios, (we need more practice at it )

    There were a few things I saw with how the swap feature works that can make it interesting. The new delays are noticeable and slow things down. But with team work you can do a "double swap" which lets you swap back the person trying to break the defense.

    This is something that will take a lot of practice and teamwork for a defense team to pull off.

    also wanted to add, we tested "self defense".

    Nymet attacked me, I was fighting back in self defense. I became trapped, and was able to swap with mymet.

    The whole key is who attacks first is the person that does not get to swap.

    This can be used to make traps. Use a lower level to annoy a higher level, get that higher level to attack. The noob runs into a trap situation, and the rest of the team moves in to close the trap. Since the higher level attacked first, he can't swap out of the trap.

    In that situation i was unable to swap, there was another player between me and the attacker and i couldn't swap with that player, for what i understood from the explanation, i should be able to do it.

    So a player who is surrounded by 8 other players/scenario and is attacked by people arround that 8 players just can't get out. Was it intended to be that way?

    @Arcnagett,

    I have been involved in many different tests of the pull/swap, and what you are describing has NOT been a problem. The only time the blocked person could not swap was when they had previously done damage, or they were just swapped with and have the 5 second delay, but after those 5 seconds the swap would work.

    I would be glad to walk through a few tests with you if we can both get online at the same time.

    General Comments - warning wall of text. :)

    The pull/swap seems to be the most controversial issue, and part of that is because of the many different impacts and the many different factors that influence it.

    I wanted to back up a minute and do a little review.

    I asked myself why do we have the pull/swap and what is it suppose to be for.

    • #1. Non-war chars interfering in wars, aka noob blockers.
    • #2. Pk traps that do not give the victim any chance at all to escape, traps that have been heavily abused to cause a lot of harm to innocent people.


    There it is plain and simple. There are 2 reasons for it, one for war mode, and one for non-war mode.

    I want to comment on these 2 things separately, and I think by doing so it will make the whole situation a lot clearer.

    Let me start with non-war.

    This is where pk'rs do not give a victim any change, and many times the only way to escape is by taking a skull, which actually causes more harm to the victim.

    The pull/swap is a huge success when it comes to giving the victim a chance to escape. For non-war purposes, we have succeeded with what we have come up with.

    For non-war mode we have also found that the pull/swap can be used to break a defense that a pk team is using. This IMHO is another success, and allows the community a means to seek retribution on the pk'rs.

    Now let's talk about the war mode effects.

    As long as the war fighters do not attack any of the unskulled chars, you can swap with them, which is a success for what we were wanting to accomplish.

    For those in low health, or being hit on by big combo's, even a small interference can cause a death, but in these cases you were probably gonna die anyways. There is only so much we can do, and IMHO this is a great measure to eliminate the noob interference problems.

    Now we have the downfall of the pull/swap for war mode.
    Traps and defense.

    The pull/swap gives a war enemy too much of an ability to escape, and I believe that the war fighters would say this is a serious problem.

    The pull/swap gives an enemy too easy of a route to break through a defense, which puts a small team at a bad disadvantage.

    I believe that the solution to this is to make the delay to use the pull swap longer for the blockers that are in war mode, or make it where you simply can not swap with someone that is in war mode.

    You can still swap with a char not in war mode, the delay or no swap would only apply to blockers that have war skull.

  • About the "stance" spell idea:

    I am also very fond of this idea, but please note: We cannot do that together with this update. Maybe this is possible with the winter update, but I cannot promise anything.

  • About the war mode idea:

    Well, the problem with doing blocking rules differently in war mode than outside is this: If people in war mode will not be able to break through the defense of their enemies but people outside the war mode will, then we force the war fighters to again use non-war-mode chars for this job which basically means we would be back to square one concerning the outside influence.

    We either have to find a way that makes it not too easy to break through for everyone while still maintaining the new escape potential, or have to live with the fact that defenses will not work as they do now or we have to scrap the whole feature.

    I do not think we can find a way to apply these rules differently inside war mode and outside without having the same problem again with non war characters influencing wars.

    Swapping positions works so far [as far as I know] and each time a new attack is made, the person is able to switch places with anyone again (even if in the 1st attack they already swapped with the player). It makes it generally impossible to be trapped, which is great against mage bombs.

    I do agree that the orange box should only surround those you are allowed to switch with.

    Regular area attack runes like avalanche seemed to show the system working as intended. But we didn't test if a fire bomb would allow the aggressor to change places with people.

    The way this is shaping up, increasing the war mode defense would be a logical "phase 2" process.

    Yes, the non-war people could breech a defense, but would they attack a guild team and have to take skulls?
    Also, the enemy would still be stopped, so how many of the non-war people would they use to try to break the defense? This is where the fair fight, pvp blessing, and revenge skull rules will come into play.
    The non-war person moving past defense was the only weakness we saw.

    > We either have to find a way that makes it not too
    > easy to break through for everyone while still
    > maintaining the new escape potential

    2. In our in-game discussion we came up with the idea of having the defensive knight do a new spell, where he acts like a "door" that only his guild mates can go past. So while he is alive they are protected and he is using the strong "stance" spell to block the passage against even non-war people.

    To prevent ghosting, the knight would invite his guild mates into the defense area and use a variant of the pull/swap to move his guild mates past him into the defensive area.
    This also allows guild mates that are "late" to still get into the defense area without having to break the defense.

    with some help, we slowly walked thru using the pullswap to test the effects of field runes.

    First, pull/swap does work to get into a stack, so my earlier problems on that much have been from me having a delay that I was not aware of.

    On the field runes, if you put one under your feet and do the swap right away, you get a ws, AND the person you pull onto the rune is getting hit with pvp damage so he too can swap.

    If you wait the 5 seconds, you do not get a skull, and the person pulled onto the fire field is now getting elemental damage, so he can NOT swap.

    IMHO, the easiest solution is to make elemental damage like that count as pvp damage so the person can swap, or make the swap work like a destroy field rune.

    Hi

    Just one stupid question: If 2 players swap at the exactly the same moment. Who will swap?

    If noone, I hope that the double not swapped player does not get any delay for swapping back.

    Could someone test this?

    I will be away from my computer for the next few hours but a scenario came to mind while I was falling asleep last night... Maybe one of you can test this.

    Similar to a low level swapping into the quest door problem that Borr tested -

    If someone is blocked next to a pz zone and gets hit, can they swap places with someone inside the pz (ie dp) thus pulling them out of a pz? (for example do people in a pz get the orange square)

    Or can someone with pz lock swap places into a pz?

    Hopefully these aren't possible.

    Don't worry, that is impossible. We did test it, same for players that are standing in their front door (would be a nice way to hop into a house and steal items from innocent bystanders). It seems that someone in a PZ can never get an orange square around him - so it is never possible to swap position with someone in PZ.

    Trying the stack theory outside the house.
    Now as we have heard that while swapping people of lower levels can be dragged through doors into higher level areas will it work the same way for house stack and pull ?
    Hard to test ofc on the test server as all houses unowned.

    Oh and Magus could not swap places when a couple of us attackers stood on a dog, and he was trapped with mw's all around.

    We tried it with a summons too so this will make for a mage paradise to trap people with summons with or without a stack i guess, as the poor victim is trying to deal with the summons , his attackers, heal and try swapping faster after he kills said summons, if he is still alive that is.

    Okay cool! Thanks Borr.

    So you can not get an orange box in a pz, but is there a way to keep the orange box when you enter a pz and run into the same possible problem?


    EDIT: Couldn't think of a scenario where someone could walk into a pz and keep an orange square. However, we found an interesting inconsistency with the rules when someone has their back to a pz they could still get trapped if they attacked someone else (even if a white skull attacking a friend) which we are concerned could become a new trap in wars. Alecto will be posting with more details below.

    @ Alecto Misc:

    The situation i tested may only happend on narrow 1 sqm corridors, where only 4 players can lead to this happening. I might be able to log in tomorow night and test it with you

    Oddly enough, i tested it with Alecto Misc and it worked as it should. I'll try it again later on the same spot as before.

    Arcnagett,

    Was fun doing the testing, not sure why you had that problem the other night, but it worked fine tonight.
    Test that spot in sva~ again to see if you have that same problem again.

    @Craban,

    We found an interesting situation. We went to the boat and had 9 chars making a 3 X 3 square on the ramp.

    B123
    B456
    B789

    B = boat
    C = 1 - 9 are the chars

    Here is what we did. #8 took ws on #5
    #7 attacked #8 to help "defend" his friend (#5)
    #4 attacked #7

    #7 could NOT swap with anyone!

    The reason is that #7 got a pz lock when he attacked the white skull. This means he can not go into pz.

    So when the system checked to see if #7 was trapped, it did not take his pz lock into consideration, and because the pz was "open", there were not any chars in it, the system thought he had a way out so he was not given the opportunity to swap. The problem is with the pz lock, he could not move into pz.

    Then after the mwall swap the aggressor is now trapped for good right?

    One thing im not seeing here or in any test so far is that all of them have been done within the confines of a city. Most common random pk's occur at hunting grounds or near them, or at choke points on the map (Such as the dwarf bridge and the kaz passage) Those are the kind of attacks/jumpings I want to test, not really much of a city attack but a hunting/near grounds attack where it is most common.

    I wish to test it near hunting grounds to test survivability of the victim to escape with the pull swap, not the ability to easily trap with little problems or trying different formations. Hopefully we can try that 8pm gmt today.

    That is correct.

    If you get someone to attack you first, lead them to a "dead end" passage, swap with them so they become trapped, and call in your friends to make it a literal "dead end" for that aggressor.

    @ Alecto: that "aggressor" could be you coming to assist a friend who is being attacked by a group of pks. Don't you think that even the aggressor should be able to swap in scenarios where if he got the kill it would be a justified kill?

    IMHO I would have to call it a bug, because the pz block is making the pz act like a wall. It is not possible to walk into pz, so the character does NOT have any tiles they can walk to, they are trapped!

    That is a hard question. It is a 2 edge blade, where what can help you can also kill you.

    There are some scenarios where ya, we can say who is the "bad" guy, and that they are the one that should be trapped. But the problem is defining all of those scenarios, and that I think is going to be a problem.

    There are times where you can make a kill "justified" and still be the "bad guy" such as the person wearing an orange skull that gets attacked by someone seeking revenge.

    @ Alecto Misc:

    For some odd reason, i still get the same problem we tested yesterday in that particular spot in Svargrond. I'm going to try to find another test case arround.

    PS.: found another place, narrow corridor in front of Darashia 2, Flat 11 and Flat 18. I tested it with doors open and closed.

    As for the "who is the bad guy" issue, from a technical point of view, pretty hard to define. What we can say is: "whoever is in a battle should have the option to get out of a trap unless he was agressive to someone". The bad guy tends to attack people, so he tends to be the agressor more often, so he tends to be able to swap less.

    It sounds like it is time for that to be investigated. Perhaps there is something about the map in that area.

    Post a time when you will be on and hopefully a few of us or a pm can go with you to check it out.

    Ok, we decided that the PZ border thing is a bug and fixed it. Will also come online today.

    @ Alecto Misc:

    I'll be online at night after college, thinking a bit about it, one point in common was that those places were all beside a house. When we tested in Thais there was water and plants arround, on those other places i had a house wall arround me. Maybe that issue with PZ could be causing it?

    It would be nice to have it tested after today's patch.

    Question Disadvantage for Knights?

    The first day i logged to test, i had this experience.
    I dont tend to get skulled, in fact i try my best to avoid getting skulled all the time, so i thought it would be better to find a skulled character and do a bit of "Justice Seeker" kind of scenario.

    Soon enough i found some corpses around Thais, all of them killed by an Elder Druid called Benja.
    I used magic to track him and found him relaxing in front of the Depot Building, still white Skulled, so i challenged him and started throwing Assassin Stars at him, as i would do to bring down a PKer, even resorting to some Divine Missiles. He ran into the narrow alley that ended near Thais Castle, and i followed him.

    At some point he stood still in the middle of the corridor and i got so close to him as to be able to do melee damage, i guess i was expecting him to resume running or try to convince me with words to spare him, but instead, the little devil did this:

    He quickly used a Magic Wall rune to trap himself between me and the wall, swapped places with me and trapped me with a Wild Growth spell! He even dared to attack me some before running away, i broke free of that trap soon, surprised of what i just saw.

    I learned to be more careful not to get so close as to let my opponent trap himself to swap with me, but then i thought, how can a Knight avoid that?

    I still am not sure if it was what the pull/swap feature was meant for or an abuse of it, i would like to hear some opinions about it.

    @Benja: I take my wayfarer hat off for you, you certainly have some great PvP moves.

    Yes, somehow it seems like an abuse if you use a magic wall to trap yourself and then be able to swap. Is there any way that the client can read if it is your magic wall or someone elses? Or perhaps a more simple solution would be to not allow a swap x seconds (length of magic wall) after you shoot one.

    IMHO that is nothing more than great strategy.

    When you attacked the skull, you were not defending yourself, you were being the aggressor. Nothing in that has changed. And in many situations like this, people only attack a skull they feel they can kill, because they are offering themselves up as a "justified" kill to the skulled char they are attacking.

    The swap worked as it should have, you went into a trap, and he used strategy to spring it and use it to his advantage.

    As I mentioned earlier, this is a 2 edged sword, it can cut both ways!

    I had some rl things that came up tonight where I wasn't able to log on when I wanted to.

    When I finally could log on, you were on line.

    I went to send you a message, but it was right as you logged off, so I just barely missed you.

    Perhaps tomorrow we can test that out.

    @ Alegard: I agree with Alecto, it was great strategy and that is actually a strategy that has to be possible. If we were to not count those mwalls, people would indeed just build traps with 2 fields in the middle and again, there would be hardly anything you could do if the trappers also keep refiring fire fields onto both fiels so you cannot pull anyone in there.

    I think this is really good as it is.

    Just a thought i keep forgetting to mention.
    How does the swap feature affect party mode, has anyone tried it ? Can those in the same party if after attacking each other be able to pull swap, no major big deal i think, except for the quest services where there is always some numb nuts wanting to mess about and try ruin it for others by getting them killed.

    We tested it being in war mode on Optional, Open and Hardcore environments: once you've dealt pvp damage to a char, you can't swap with it. Given that party works like war system, there souldn't be troubles.
    Nevertheless, we can try it when the TS will come back.

    [edit]

    Oops:

    I've forgotten about all the tests in party mode I've done yesterday with tons of players at Thais East gate while showing them how swaps/stacks work.
    I can confirm that it works like intended.

    Exclamation 

    Ah ok thanks, good to know

    Another thought that came to mind, now that the problem with summons and standing on creature has been solved regarding the pull swap, what about people using troughs and those house plants.

    Where Magus and i and some others tried our little test in Thais with the doggy and the summons, anyone can be in his house open the package and toss it out to a vantage spot and boom the player coming down the stairs is stuck.

    Also i was playing on my non pvp server and someone had taken the time to take these wretched house package plants open them at home and then lure them to a rotty hole in dara, traaaap.

    I would love to see things like troughs and these house plants either be unmovable, in the trough case and the house plant so that u can walk over.

    I believe both can be destroy via "USE" weapon on them, 100% sure on troughs, not so 100% sure on plants but I think its possile.

    Yes thank you i am well aware that i can mash them with my sword, but on the non pvp world I'm a wee little sorc and dont really have the cap to carry around a melee weapon, and have you tried swiping at those damned plants? and see how long it takes to break one, lol.

    Once some character decided to hinder the players who were doing the Yalahar quest running between Yala and Telas in Edron and blocked the whole darn bridge with these plants, it would take me anything from 3 to 10 hits and more to break one plant, so yeah great when your health is low and the monsters are attacking while your bashing your way through potted plants

    Aaaaaaaaand if you are actually trapped and standing on these items how do you hit on it then


    See my problem now.

    well if you were trapped and there is these plants surrounding you + on top of you, you can still bash your way out and move those that are on top of you over, tho I dont think we have tested swapping ontop of objects you cant move across, sorc or druid, that's the disadvantage of them, you get great power for a trade off in weight. and there is plenty of mid and high lv sorc/druids that I know of that carry a small weapon with them to deal with these things, you cant please everyone at every lv.

    + I should note it probably takes some good cash, lots of planning, and timing to pull off this kind of thing and some good foresight. Either way I dont think it will become a serious issue unless it happens on a mass scale.

    Agreed. I even carry a knife in my more or less peaceful optional pvp world, you never know when you need it (for instance to destroy spider webs or to help someone to enter deeper banuta area).

    I would love to test all those changes in the test server. But it looks it will come online when I dont have time like often before sadly

    it is a "sword" weapon, and also useful for removing tall grass in certain areas on the map.

    Hello guys your missing my point here lolz.
    The issue is not with what i can bash it with to get it out of my way BUT CAN i get rid of it, if it is used to lay a trap, so i cant pull swap .

    And yes i say again one can bash away at them to get free but low in health while being attacked by player or monster its like will you survive long enough bashing plants..

    Are we not here to eliminate the possibility of abuse when players see the pull swap working to the disadvantage of the pk and teams you bet your sweet butt they will find a way around it, and using plants and troughs will be one of them for sure, which will then defeat the whole object of what we are trying to achieve here.

    And besides i thought luring and trapping in non pvp worlds is illegal anyway, so whats the harm in making the plants so you can walk on and over them and the troughs non movable.

    Let pvp skills and trapping be a human skill and not basing it on in game inconsistencies and weaknesses.

    I didn't know where to post this, but what happened to the proposal where people who are not in war-mode, not being able to heal people in war mode while they are being attacked by their war mode enemies?

    If I remember right, everyone agreed to this and I didn't see not a single negative to it. I'm also asking because a few friends of mine say they wont start playing again until 1) non-war mode chars can't trap war mode players 2) non war-mode characters can't heal war mode players in action

    That is in phase 2. Check the focus group thread on what craban is taking to the internal discussions.

    With the fall patch the swap feature makes it where non-war charts will not be able to trap those in war battles, so we are half way there for what you want.

    In phase 2 you get the second thing about non-war healing those in war.

    Alexana your making a big deal about something thats not going to be threatening. plants and troughs cannot be picked up, therefore you have to be in the area where the stuff spawns for it to really work, and once its destroyed you have to wait till the SS for it to return.

    2nd its really difficult to move those plants and troughs around, I should know I threw a bunch of chairs which have the same moving properties minus the cannot stand on its square half way across from thais to the entrance near fibula and it took forever, not to mention I passed like 5 different people who could have easily intercepted me. in fact if it wasnt for a friend to come and help me move the chairs it would have taken me twice as long to position the stuff.

    3rd if in the sad position that somehow you fell for and got trapped, you CAN escape with or without swapping so in fact it doesnt break any system, its just an object youll have to remove first. not just that, the attacker has to KNOW you will be in the area of the plants and troughs or else it wont work because its a pain in the arse to position the stuff correctly. Now tell me what kind of PKer sits in a random spawn or something like with troughs or plants in the area or taken, for like some 2 hours waiting for you to get there, then spring the trap with 4 or 5 buddies...

    Your better blocking using yourself at this point 2 hours ago where ever you were. Just think of plants and troughs as a bonus in traps, that doesn't slow you down too much.

    If its a game inconsistency what is your problem to get rid of it. ?

    How the heck do you know its not going to be abused where is your crystal ball ?

    I know damn well how plants troughs and other furniture garbage that can block get onto the streets and hunting spots to be dangerous and yes people do use it seen it often enough.

    No one has still answered my question that if your standing on a plant how do you then break it when there is no where else to move

    To beat a criminal you have to think like one, you want to think with your head in the sand thats fine Nymet
    Im done here and will leave it up to the Tibian Gods.

    They have made wise moves in the past regarding traps like the parcel furniture one in the house door way i really dont see why it cant be taken a step further.

    Ok, so just explain to me in short which the questionable things are, please.

    - If you are trapped also using such items, then they will count towards the trap. That means that if at least one of those 8 fields around you is a creature, you can swap. If not, then yes, you will have to destroy some of those things if you cannot push them either. That, I do not consider much of a problem.

    - The second issue seems to be in cases where these things are put below e.g. a ramp, so that you land on top of one of those and in a trap. Generally speaking, at places where you can actually land on top of such an item, you can also go back the way you came in (back up the ramp etc). Exceptions are one way holes / teleports and being kicked out of a house that you cannot enter anymore. Both cases are restricted to very very rare locations. Looking at it like that, is there a bigger problem coming from this?

    Is there anything else I missed?

    Ah yes, I read about this a few days ago already. Generally, I understand the concern. However, I would prefer trying to work on such passages from content design.

    Apart from that, we'll consider all sorts of spell options and improvements soon and I'll remember this issue there too. For this test though, I would prefer not doing anything hastily, especially this kind of "violation" of a spell.

    ^ kk

    @ You can now also swap with all summons and all monsters that can be pushed. Additionally, like on Optional PvP you can now generally push all summons, even if that monster would usually not be pushable.

    I'm checking all these summons. When done I'll update here the result.

    Just a prevew: I can push wolves (not summoned) but can't swap with them (while receiving pvp damage, ofc).

    Can you get more detail to reproduce this, cause when I checked him, I saw his name.

    Who cannot see this name and hp anymore? Everyone or just himself?

    Those who did not see his name and hp, did they all see all other names and hp?

    He was in a stack and swapped from there, right? How far down do you have to be in the stack for this to happen?

    can we really exclude that accidentally the hotkey for this display option was hit?

    3:46 Fixor [305]: HE was in the stack
    13:46 Fixor [305]: and swapped out
    13:46 Fixor [305]: at that moment
    13:46 Fixor [305]: he didn't had any skull/hp/name
    13:46 Fixor [305]: but everyone else had
    13:46 Fixor [305]: i redid ctrl+n
    13:46 Fixor [305]: and the guy with who he swapped
    13:46 Fixor [305]: said, wth? ->
    13:46 Fixor [305]: i wasn't the only one seeing it
    13:47 Fixor [305]: but i just saw him again and it was normal again
    Another issue: a player can't swap with his own summons. Is it intended to work so?


    Aleppe

    [edit]

    So creatures and own summons are swappable: the problem we had got testing them was that one needs to drag himself into the summon/mob spot to be able to swap them, and not click like we are used o do with players. All in all, I'd leave it like it is now.

    Swaps with own summons = ok
    Swaps with somebody's else summons = ok
    Swaps with pushable creatures = ok

    I dont' know if it should work this way...

    Yesterday me and my friends were fighting another team of people on a one sqm large corridor so it was like this way
    X = enemies
    O = my team

    xxXOooooooo

    the ally that was on the side of the enemy Swapped with him so it stood this way

    xxOXooooo

    then swapped again

    xxOoxooooooo

    then again
    xxOooxooooooo

    so whats about it? we found a way to use swap to trap someone we did easly killed him maybe you guys should take a look about that

    kind regards

    The only way he was trapped where he could not swap his way out would be if he had attacked those surrounding him first (he was the aggressor).

    Sounds like in this case that is what happened, he was on the "front line" so he was aggressive, and you figured out how to use the swap feature to your benefit.

    We have been saying over and over that pvp is now going to require some strategy. Good job!

    I personally think the feature is really awesome, should surely be released on the upcoming update, if you're unjustifiedly atacked, you got higher chances to suceed and escaping, not to mention the pvp blessing makes it alot cheaper to die, making it impossible to hunt -out of the server or abuse a huge number of people, which is basically great.

    Well, if this thing gets implented on Inferna the war will be destroyed, we wont have a single chance to kill Almighty Danne/some other higher lvls. Alot of people told me they will quit if this gets implented on Inferna so i don't think this is a good idea at all.

    Watched some cams on normal pvp servers and might be interesting for them there but i don't know if they would like it.

    Please keep Pvpe away from this !

    @Eddie Sariban

    I see why they destroying pvp now. Theres is little Eddie Sariban who is a little lame who's entering traps and cant escape. Then he died, as we can see in character info 3 times. Then he cries, cries and cries and making proposal thread. He's crying because he had been traped and died because his own fault. Man if you enter trap, you cant escape it because you are lame.

    People from my server said that most of them will quit if this pvp update will be real.

    Is there anyway to remove the swapping spots feature, but add a new feature where if items are underneath a person you can still push, this would eliminate the "Anti Push" from botters, and still make people trappable with firebomb runes or and field runes...... PVP = TRAPPING REMOVE TRAPPING = REMOVE PVP = YOUR GAME IS DEAD.

    This thing of swap position is just horrible omg.
    Trap is one of the oldest PvP taticts and it get destroyed by an update its discusting.

    I hope it wont be implementated. Since im old school guy and i wont see PvP ruined again.

    I didnt like the idea AT ALL.
    Swapping if you get trapped? possibly the worst idea ever.
    Trap has always been some of the best aspects of pvp, now youre gonna take that away too?

    Im agree with swapping, some worlds have a lot of PA, this can help to stop some PA. Its good idea.

    War system really need change, war guilds without swapping and cant leave the guild war, only when finish.

    Its my opinion. This will help to stop some powerabuser. Thx.

    I NEVER saw something so useless and that will destroy the pvp like this swap, people can leave from traps so easy, how we will kill them now? using chars without yellows, skulls and mages / paladins atacking?
    If you Cipsoft dont wanna destroy the pvp just change it now!

    Now in tibia you need like 10 people to kill a knight high level (not only knights), being pk or not, the only way to kill him was to trap him and kill him with time, because combo will not do it and now what? knights will be invincible? if you dont trap them it is way impossible to get them running

    very very bad

    I've always been between the ones in Focus Group fighting against the swap feature: then I came to TS, and I realized that this is mostly an aggressive feature.

    I suggest you all to check it better before to judge it: it's not true that there aren't ways to trap characters, you've simply not found them yet (there are at least 3).
    I've written several times that this feature requires pvp skills: time to show your ones, if you have.


    Aleppe

    [edit]

    Now in tibia you need like 10 people to kill a knight high level

    False. I can trap that HL knight with 4 ppls not giving him a way to swap.
    Learn how swaps work before to judge them.

    This wont destroy PVP... this will add more excitement to traps. Also as Aleppe said, will require ur pvp skills. Its a great idea.

    Aleppe, i think he meant he wanted to kill the knight instant in a combo not stand and waste it. Please cipsoft i beg you to not implent this, im sitting here right now feeling soooo worried. You shouldn't do it please, it's bad for your community. You see alot of people posting "this will stop pa", well, if you guys was in war and so you would understand. Many people that post that this may be intersting dosen't even war too so yea..I love some other futhers tho like pvp blessings etc! , but this is not good at ALL.

    @ Huzco:

    I'm not here to convince anybody, but just to tell you which is my simple player personal opinion.

    This said: yup, friends could help that knight, but that happens even nowadays. The difference is that there would be even mutual Virtual Orange Skulls (~15 mins), Orange skulls, Assisted skulls and, hopefully, even points to earn the right to call to war your enemy (war system) without his agreement.
    All this without considering the Twist of fate, eventual FFRs reductions, the possibility to reach your target even if he's hiding behind noobchars without wasting unjusts, the possibility to aim without stairhopping delay and the renewed stacks options.

    As you can see, to say that the pvp environment resulting from the 1st patch will be poor compared to the actual ones, is to talk nonsense: it will require high pvp skills, and those can't be coded in an illegal script


    @ Rhordii:

    Aleppe, i think he meant he wanted to kill the knight instant in a combo not stand and waste it

    Nothing prevents him to do so, considering that swaps have 5 seconds delay. Or better, something prevents it, given that now just the 1st 8 stacked chars on top of a stack will be able to deal pvp damage, being them all aimable and able to deal pvm damage.

    Let me say that if it is what he meant, I think he should read back this whole board, considering that to take an assisted kill while trying to combo a target would be a bit dumb, more if that target could be able to frag each comboer for free being them revenge skulled


    Many people that post that this may be intersting dosen't even war too so yea

    It has been said a lot of times already: the natural environment for wars will be the war system. I've not written 'IS', because all we know that the actual war system is flawed like Hell in all serverskinds.

    BUT things will change: there are a lot of suggested improvements for the war system, starting from the right to call to war your enemy without his agreement, through guild alliances, kings' rewards, nobody leaves nobody if.. , exp from frags in hardcore, friendly fire for Optional pvp...

    Just wait the 2nd PVP patch and you'll see that we'll have back our beloved wars (yes, I'm a warmonger, a FAIR one).

    1. Swapping into a stack does work only not if the top creature is not a player character.

      Atm I could swap into a stack with my own summons and creatures on top of it.

If PKs manage to drive you to somewhere where your only exit leads to somewhere you do not want to go, then they did well, they really still need the chance to get people, and if you do not want to take this route out, that is your choice. The important thing is that you still have a choice, that is the main thing this feature is supposed to bring.


      Well, standing downstairs a ladder and a rope spot, I can activate swaps, while being upstairs not. Same where I can levitate up.

    3. 13:44 You see a trapdoor. Mind to change the name? Quite funny to see a trapdoor not allowing trap-swaps

    I play pvp for 6 years... since wars were funny and tibia a nice game for pvp... this is the bottom I've seen... you can't trap anymore... you are doing this like if Trapping is something easy: It's not.

    Trapping is part of the game, you must have skills, you must be fast, must know exactly where to go and forsee your enemies moviments, mwalls must be shooted on the right sqms, it's not something easy to do, if you did it well, you deserve your reward..

    for the other side, being trapped only happens if you did a mistake, you got 8 different directions where you can run, your enemies must be very fast to block them all or you failed hard eliminating them by yourself... you can "dance" around them avoiding their trap and it makes the fun of the scape...

    THIS is PvP, it's about having skills, being fast, being smart, you just ruined it

    There are at least 3 ways to trap players even with swaps. Let's see how long it will take you to discover them.

    i dont like this function, but its still possible to trap, a lot harder though.

    The characters who are trapping shouldnt attack the victim, and have some shooters behind to kill

    Anyways lol, nowadays to kill a level 300 EK u need at about 25 mages attacking and like 8 knights circling him with exori grans if the target has sio. I was on a level 270 ek skulled i just got unbeaten, nor by my pvp or something like that just because i could walk through everybody that was attacking me like pple do on Optional PvP. It will just screw the pvp more.

    I pray that it dont get activated.

    I'll reply just to those posts which will contain at least 3 ways to trap players even with swaps: it is senseless to keep arguing without the required knowledge.

    And no, one of the ways it's not

    "The characters who are trapping shouldnt attack the victim, and have some shooters behind to kill"

    given that the one who can't swap is who deals damage to the other character, and not viceversa.

    I'll repeat it once more: I was one between those who fought against swaps in Focus Group discussion until I've not checked them in TS. After hours and hours of tests, I've realized that it's mostly an aggressive feature. Guess why?

    You dont need to be that smart to realize what you've said. But to do that u need to be in an open area. Now imagine a level 300 trapped inside venore. He will never die, imagine a masslog that when u log u cant attack the guy because he will can run anytime .. so he'll just logout.

    Its a lot controverse. And i still dont agree with that =s.

    GOTCHA!!!!!

    Get it through your head, if you try to fight a war using the skull system you won't like it, USE THE WAR MODE!!!!!

    you just invalidated your complaint! The skull system is NOT for fighting wars, and if these restrictions mean you won't be able to fight your war using the skull system, THEN THEY HAVE SUCCEEDED!

    Mind telling us at least one of your trapping-scenarios, aleppe? I'd like to check how bulletproof they are and if it can be used in every single situation. Spontaniously thinking, I can find several methods but they all need special circumstances to take effect.

    We got one doing a short test on defence with 3 friends.
    But that's prolly marginal 'coz used in small passages.
    We got raided by a pack of enemies that engaged us in a fight. Our blocker didn't join the offence and as soon as the opportunity allowed switched with one of our oppressors. Coordinated action (me moving back 1 sqm, friend pushing the enemy) lead to trapping him inside our defensive "structure" and later death.
    Do I get one point? :o

    [Side note] Requirements:
    • Small passage, probably any defensive place used right now would do
    • Enemy attacking first
    • Coordination. Wrongly made may lead to the blocker/anyone who has switched getting trapped by agressors

    Trap is part of pvp, so yes, this will destroy some part of the pvp.

    @Aleppe and the rest of non pvpers: Do you all got a char to fight in a pvp server? Or your just a non pvp guy who only fight at test servers once each year? Stop saying that it will be good to pvp if you will not suffer those consequences on your server.

    I don't know if this really is intended or not, but if you are standing near a door that can be opened, you will have the option to swap, however you will not get the option on quest doors.

    I have not tested quest doors where level on door > characters level, but that require a little bit of help with cleaning.


    If anyone is interested to test this with me, post here.

    I will just point out the reasons which made me think that it's not a good feature.

    1- It would destroy all kind of traps, giving small teams a big disadvantage since they would need to live together with the new skull system in an open place. It's like, in case they run to a trap, high level knights who would never get killed since they'd give lots of unjusts, would just run into traps and magic wall behind / have a friend behind attacking him to rush into the trapper's place.

    2- I didn't like when me and my team were at party attacking each other to get out from traps, or to push skulleds out of a stack.

    3- In my own opinion, this anti-trap feature would work out of PvP, it should be used for people who get trapped by a X time at anywhere, like depot, boats, etc.

    1- How do you mean that? Breaking defenses with a high knight in front pushing all the way in? Yes, that's a minor flaw and a fix for that is in progression. Eventually you could just attack and let your 1st person switch back with that knight before his 5 second delay is over.

    2- Getting out from traps now needs alot of rethinking compared to before. So far I see it as a good point, even more since this favors knights and my main is a knight Pushing skulled people out of stacks is a positive point in my opinion. But it can be seen from two sides.

    3- It was already thought of to implement this feature in other aspects beside pvp. By now, I think noone can say what is yet to come. In general I kinda like this feature combined with the pvp-blessing. You got a higher chance to survive due to swapping, blessing costs less => longer pvp-actions, more pvp actions. And noobchars lose a big amount of power

    My thoughts about the swapping thing.

    First of all I'd like to say that I'd prefer not introducing this but I guess there's no possibility for that. So what I think could be changed or improved is the following thing.

    First of all I think that you should only be able to swap positions by PUSHING yourself on the character you wish to swap with, this will require "pvp" skills and it will make it alot harder and more fun and exciting. Because right now I can't see any need of PVP skills just to click/walk your way through all players.

    So I think pushing yourself through people would be the best option.

    _______________________________________________________

    Secondly I think that if you're in warmode you shouldn't be allowed to swap positions with anyone in the war (enemies & allies) Though it should still be possible to swap with no warmode players.


    _______________________________________________________

    I do also think that you should only be able to swap positions if you're getting PVP damage that is from a yellow/red/white skull/orange?. This will prevent people from joining parties with eachother and swap their way through a defence or what so ever.

    (Yes I know it is?? / would be possible anyway but it would at least be bit harder to do so, or atleast bring more risks.

    In my opinion this should be location based, this way people that are trying to protect friends by trapping entrances with noob chars cannot be swaped, simple, if the path which the person is going to be swaped does not leads to a protection zone then it shouldn't be swapable.

    Also, is there a way to just don't introduce this feature?

    There isn't only WAR, people fight because they got attacked.. imagine a guild that is not powerful to countrol the server, a weak guild we could say... but a guy from the ruling guild PA this guy, like a 200 EK going to PA a 80 RP.. something very common... the weak is guild is weak to countrol the server, but together they could solve their problem with the PA'r... they rush and kill it for defend themselves!
    They trap the EK, kill it and proves for the rulling guild that they are not a punchbag, they CAN do something...
    the new system just won't give a chance for low lvls killing high lvls

    One more negative point:
    the defense.

    there was a thread about it but it was closed...

    the defence is useless, easy to break... we can say that it's not possible to make defenses anymore, that means:

    when we have a fight and people are losing the war, the only way they have to still get active is making fast attacks and then making a defense, without it the weak ppl won't feel "safe" to try doing anything, so they will stop getting active, fights won't happen, they won't renew their pacc and the war gets inactive, the winner gets bored and gets inactives as well,


    TADÃ: you'll have a dead server

    @ Morindal:

    Small passage, probably any defensive place used right now would do
    Enemy attacking first
    Coordination. Wrongly made may lead to the blocker/anyone who has switched getting trapped by agressors


    More or less... Yes, that's the 1st way: if your enemy deals pvp damage to other chars he won't be able to swap with those chars.

    So: 1° in a PVP trap one has to decide either to fight or to swap. If a PKer is trapped and you're not a pvp-noob, he will die

    => 2 ways left to be found


    @ Aak Nicros Pretak:

    I'm avaible on Antica, Askara, Danubia, Elisya, Inferna, Nova, Phytera and Premia on 3 digits chars.


    @Mathenus:

    the new system just won't give a chance for low lvls killing high lvls

    I think that you've not got the point yet: people will fight like hell after the patch due to twist of fate, revenge skull and ffrs. My major concerns are about the 20 unjusts, because I'm afraid we'll have too many skulled people all around with the actual rule.


    we can say that it's not possible to make defenses anymore

    Nope: the only thing we can say is that YOU haven't found how to do it yet.


    Aleppe


    [edit]

    Yet, although there are pvp-masters writing everywhere about everything, I've not seen anybody talking about 2 of the 3 ways to trap players even with swaps. Are you going to say me that you want to keep the secret or what?

    Please do not go through with this swapping idea, it will yet destroy another part of the game which is traping. You do not have to change EVERYTHING.

    Or to the correct you are changing the wrong things, traping is not the problem, the many unjusts are.

    My main complaint about swapping right now is actually the color of the swap indicator box. At first glance I had it confused with the attack indicator (red) leading me to believe I was attacking the skulled player trapping me. Please change the color, I suggest blue

    Thumbs down 

    Swapping breaks Defenses.
    Me and my buddy were on test server he's a 200 rp. Well we killed a level 200 + mage and i'm on my lvl 100 char and we escaped and set up a defense, with just us 2.(him blocking) about 1 min later 4 level 200s + came, trapped themselves next to the defense blocker, swapped themselves in and dropped me quick.

    Defenses are primarily used by underdog teams.. such as me and my buddy vs the 4 people. Defenses are used to give losing teams a fighting chance. Swapping encourages that the winning team in war or pvp situations can break any defense with superior numbers. For the most part swapping is good if u weren't able to completely destroy defenses with it. I don't think it was cip's intention to kick the losing guild/group while they are already down. But this needs to be rethinked as how it affects defenses.

    If not, once a team starts losing war, sneaks are out of the question since you cannot stack or use defenses anymore. Which would lead to mass inactivity from both sides of the war.

    The pvp blessings and swapping are nice to encourage people to keep fighting. But the defense is important to get your team offline when you realize you can't fight anymore against a larger enemy team. No matter how many things are added to encourage pvp, if you lose every battle because u can't end it with a defense, it destroys a part of the game. Partly the strategy of planning and using defenses effectively. It gives victory to the team with superior numbers and levels, not the team that deserves to win. The team that works for it, with strategy.

    I realize this post focuses a lot on defenses, though it relates a lot to this discussion as it's only the swapping feature with the defense blocker that ends them.

    \o/ PVP skills are starting to work.

    Nothing to review out of ladders/stairs sqms which need to be considered for swaps purposes (atm they are not).

    Now that you've noticed that swaps are mostly an aggressive feature, there is one think left: to understand how to organize a valid def even with swaps (there are at least 5 different ways).

    there's ways to get around most features cip implements.. libera has been avoiding 20 unjusts per kill for a very long time and i'm sure the players on our server would find a way to mess up swapping aswell. The point is, if he have to find a way to make swapping not work at all to form defenses, doesn't that say something? maybe that swapping shouldn't break defenses in the first place...

    Naaa, here the point are just pvp skills, nothing else. There are many players asking to bring the old Tibia atmosphere back: well, this is one step forward.

    Do you want to keep somebody trapped? You'll need enough pvp skills to do so.

    Do you want to set-up a valid def? Same.

    And pvp skills can't be coded in illegal scripts.

    Well i'm sure you know a lot about pvp skills from the optional pvp server your on, but i'd like to give my opinion. a group of 5-10 in a defense vs. 50 people mass swapping in isn't pvp skill. I agree making trapping harder is cool. But defenses are valid now.. with swapping they can be broken with massive numbers from the opposition only, not pvp skill. Its not hard to fill in squares infront of their defense and start clicking.

    To create defenses with enough blockers to make the enemies swapping requires a larger team. The whole point of using defenses is because your team is too small to continue fighting in an open area or city. Defenses are used by the losing team because they lack numbers, making them require more people to block swapping in the defense is hurting the losing team.

    Well i'm sure you know a lot about pvp skills from the optional pvp server your on,

    Do you want me to brag? Ok

    Open/Hardcore PVP servers in which I've fairly created and still owning at least one 3 digits char:
    Antica: MS, EK
    Askara: MS, RP
    Elysia: ED, EK
    Furora: MS (now Danubia )
    Inferna: MS
    Nova MS, EK
    Premia: ED
    Phytera: MS, RP
    PVP guilds founded/joined through years: 49 (1st: Antica Alliance = One of the guilds in Alliance, to make it clear to that pvp-master wannabe in discussion board)
    PVP guilds:
    Still active: 6
    Leaded: 1
    In war: 3
    PVP stats:
    ~ 2501 unjustified kills (all my pvp chars 100+ - considering just lv 50+ victims since 2002)
    ~ 179 deaths due to pvp fights
    Optional PVP servers in which I've fairly created and still owning at least one 3 digits char after 2006 - this account- given that I couldn't FAIRLY deal with warbotters:
    Candia: MS
    Nerana: ED, RP, MS
    Never been banned for macro use, nor in pvp account neither in n-pvp one, not due to luck but because I hate cheaters of any kinds hence there is just 1 way to play for me: fairly.
    3 banishments for too many unjusts (old skull system)
    Joined Test Serves:
    Public 4
    Private 6
    3 x Golden bugs


    with swapping they can be broken with massive numbers from the opposition only, not pvp skill. Its not hard to fill in squares infront of their defense and start clicking.

    Told you: there are 5 ways even with swaps.
    You keep talking about noobish def behaviours which havent' nothing to share with pvp skills.


    The whole point of using defenses is because your team is too small to continue fighting in an open area or city

    Nope, the point is that cowards are used to hide behind tons of unmarked/noobchars while being marked before to log-off. That's the point.


    Defenses are used by the losing team because they lack numbers, making them require more people to block swapping in the defense is hurting the losing team.

    Tell them to start to attack their killers right after their pvp deaths and they will turn the whole enemy side into a red-skulled one in few mins just wasting few thousands gps for pvp blessings and few exp/skills due to ffr.

    You seem to be unaware of how a server on which you have 2 x 100+ character is called.

    @aleppe
    thank you for the facts my friend. Not all defenses are blocked with noob chars, but i'm sure u knew that. You see it as cowardly, i see it as strategic, our opinions differ but i respect ur opinion. As for attacking after dieing and getting their whole team red/black skull i'd love to do that. Unfortunately libera is run by a few guilds with some hundred members it would be hard/near impossible to get them all red/black. Even then most people do not like the idea of sacrificing their char's that much to bring down the enemy.

    Edit:
    Also the leading guild controls a substantial amount of the servers wealth, u can only fight aslong as u have money. Dieing and coming back only works for so long.

    You'd have known why I call that server Phytera if you were a true old account player, not meaning those ones calling MPAs like E-plates just because they've read about it somewhere. And now, get lost.

    I've been playing since 2004 so before pythera was created. I don't find it "true old account" though, heheh. I've never heard of pythera having any phytera name. So I guess you're once again making things up


    @swapping thing, not bad but gives too big advantage to knights with a sioer against even big teams.

    Ok, Aleppe, you are the only one who liked against all the others post who disliked, you are the one that actually IS playing non-pvp and all the others are not. You can stop playing the smart one who understood everything now, it's geting annoying...


    clear thing is: 90% of us didn't like it, but Cip stoped answering on the thread... what Cip does have to say about it?
    usually they don't, don't even listen to their players and do everything we said we didn't want...

    @ Lavalla:

    Just post with your main and you'll discover the truth

    I clearly wrote with a sioer. Learn to read.
    Tip: Druids can use m walls/wild growth.


    Knights were meant to be blockers: swaps will turn them into unblockers.


    @ Matheus:

    If you weren't ignorant like you've just showed, and if you had read what I've written in this same thread, you would have discovered that in Focus Group I was between those who mostly fought against swaps.

    The point is that, once I've started to test them, I've realized that swaps require high pvp skills, right what best part of you all ( 90% you say) doesn't clearly have looking at what you write, given that you've not found yet the 3 ways to keep somebody trapped and the 5 ways to resist to swaps defending somebody.

    Clear thing is that the 90% of pvp players are noobs. That's the clear thing here.
    Not? Which are those 3+5 ways? Tell me.

    Noobs.

    @ All: if you're a griefer or an aggressive player and you think to come here bragging like you're used to do, be advised that you won't pass through me. I'll carve your soul until you won't be gone.

    3 ways to keep somebody trapped? Unless we are talking about a situation where it's a low-mlvl knight being trapped or that he was the first to attack, I frankly don't see a way to disable the person from swapping. How are you going to do that do 300 lvl, 10 mlvl EK? Leave him empty squares? if he is not a noob, he will take a use of them. Put some other stuff like flowers or w/e? He can smash them, if he is not a noob.
    Stop attacking while he throws m walls? Oh come on, he is not alone on the server either, friends are on the way, there is no time to play like that. There are few places where swapping might be indeed a problem for such a character but a no-noob player could still make his way out.
    On TS currently it's nearly impossible to test it, 99% of trapped players are skulled so obviously they can't switch with everyone. Don't call us noobs then, cause we didn't have a chance to test the swapping in peace, like you had.

    Listen to yourself, you don't like talking in a polite way, your thread on Balera board showed that you enjoy hunting people for saying "signed".

    That's the form of reasoning I like.

    So, look:
    1. If a player deals pvp damage to somebody else, he won't be able to swap with that character (FOUND)
    2. Hint: something open
    3. Hint: who's on top?
    4. Hint: Let's give a party!
    These are 4 ways (I had written at least 3), and there is even another one, but I'll keep it for me.

    Try to find those 4: dOne it, we'll talk about how to defend your team by swaps.

    2. Hint: something open

    Not sure if we're talking of the same thing but worth a try...
    At first I considered it as a bug, you might think of it as an opportunity - open house doors that the person getting trapped isn't invited to.

    3. Hint: who's on top?

    Doesn't have to be on top. Works even if just beside.
    Npcs work best, you can't switch if one is blocking you. Also possible with monsters that cant be "pushed".

    [Edit] After a short thought, I'd consider both options a bug. Houses bug can be eliminated (can it?) but NPCs can't be "repaired" - you'd have the possibility to move some out of their range of walking which would probably be abused even more

    I guess it either has something to do with opened houses (which should be a bug imo because if you cannot enter a house, you are also trapped) or with holes/ladders. Open a hole and trap upstairs as well as downstairs so that he can switch between 2 levels but still receive damage all the time. Again this would work in special situations, if you are able to force someone to go to a hole OR he voluntarely goes there. Anyone clear in his mind would avoid such situations and try to swap his way into an open field/to pz. It can be useful in certain hunting grounds (venore drag lair comes to my mind) but it's again connected to requirements and not a general way. In open field, same as above USELESS.

    Well. Noone ever said those things could be used IN ANY SITUATION.
    Ppl said it's impossible to trap anyone now. Aleppe's giving you hints that it is. Under some conditions, yes, but still possible.
    I don't know what you think but wouldn't the swapping option be useless if you still had an ultraturboreally easy way for trapping? That's what the feature is for - to prevent getting trapped and making it hard for aggressor.

    I understand that, I'm fine with people not being able to be trapped anymore - that's not the point. I am just annoyed by someone claiming to know the ultimate pvp-trap-skills even after swapping will be introduced when they are practicably useless because people will adapt and work their way arround them soon enough. For me it looks like the complaints that knights gave after the potion update when they still went to pvp or hunt with Ultimate Healing Runes. They were right but they were simply not up to date.

    Narrow passages can be even a problem for paladins lower than lv 32 and knights below mlv 9.
    The only HL chars which can be trapped even nowadays in an open field are the ones controlled by pvp noobs, and you appear to be skilled just with them. Enough said.

    No.

    Again: if you'll try to keep your actual pvp behaviour even in the pvp environment resulting from the 1st pvp patch, you'll be owned by skilled players. Badly.

    Are all summonable creatures push-able/swap-able? If yes, it minimizes the effectivenes of this strategy by far. NPCs are mostly in cities which means there are multiple ways to pz. If you swap/get swapped to an npc you are fail. Trapping a botter in huntplaces works, but botters shouldn't be considered a standard (even if the truth is different).

    Yes, since you can just leave a sqm free so they're unable to swap. Then again, how many knights pk alone without a friend that can at least shoot a mwall. Same for paladins under lvl 32. As low as they are, they die soon enough anyway.
    At the moment it's hard, not impossible to trap any high level on an open field. Plan your group and set a druid-line on a place the highlevel has a high probability to run through and chain-paralyze and mwall him. The person isn't a pvp noob because of it, he simply can't do anything about it.

    > I sadly think I'll bash every single argument of

    Going by your logic I can find 3 missing ones easily.

    -The players mouse stops working so he cannot swap anymore
    -The player has a disconnect and cannot react anymore
    -The player is a pvp-noob and doesn't understand what the boxes arround chars next to him mean.

    > A note: to be a true king you need to have people

    A true king isn't selected, he is born. I am your king, deal with it.

    Just like today, just nowadays the skill is in bringing more noobchars to a battlefield. I'm sure the coming changes will change that.

    Yes they are. Are you able to tell me which was the reason of this choice?


    Then again, how many knights pk alone without a friend that can at least shoot a mwall.

    I'm not talking just about PKers but even about solo hunters: paladins up to lv 32 and knights with mlv up to 9 can be trapped quite easily. That's why I've posted in Focus Group a solution to fix this problem.
    Btw, how would you solve it? Let's see.


    > Before find them, then we'll talk.

    Are you able to find them or not?


    A true king isn't selected, he is born. I am your king, deal with it.

    I'm dealing with a child-behaving player: that's all or can I wait for something better?


    Very smart to quote only the first part of my post. Did the rest hit the bulls-eye?

    That was enough to let you know to which paragraph I was referring. Since you aren't able to understand it alone: no holes and ladders aren't involved in point 2. traps. Retry (ask somebody to help you: you don't appear to be skilled enough)

    Which choice do you mean? Can you be more clear in your questions? Even though it makes it easier to cover up your mistakes later if you don't write alot, do it in this case please.

    I wouldn't solve it. If for example 2 pks are able to chase someone into a 1 sqm passage (or the player already was there) and they place boxes behind themselves, leaving the target 2 sqms to run between them then that person either is able to hold out until friends come or he will die. That's the risk of pvp-servers.

    You didn't present even 1 valid point so far, how can I find things that you make our of air? t's like telling you that I'm thinking of 2 numbers between 1 and 10000, now guess my numbers.

    There is no need to cut off that paragraph in such an ambigous meaning then. It seems everyone in Tibia except you isn't skilled enough because noone found that awesome strategies yet and you managed to find even 3!

    I feel pretty extraordinary for finding at least 2 then.

    1. Blocking with magic walls/wild growth still possible
    2. Something open: you cant swap with open spaces to move to. So depending on how cipsoft solves the pushing problem with items below you it gives you time to get enough people to bring enough magic walls to block nicely.
    3. Timing: If you stop attacking after one swap the swapped char ist still trapped (and you can easily swap him back whereever you want him to be if you have an organised team) Those being trapped have then the only chance to self attack themselves with a fire field to be able to swap again as far as I know.
    4. Like written, non pushable creatures and NPCs (dont understand why they were not added to the "pushable" creatures) help greatly to block someone

    @ Maru the bear king:

    1. Blocking with magic walls/wild growth still possibl

    Yes, it is, but that was too obvious. The 1st way to trap somebody is to make him deal pvp damage to you: he won't be able to swap. You can even step on his fields with more chars.


    2. Something open: you cant swap with open spaces to move to. So depending on how cipsoft solves the pushing problem with items below you it gives you time to get enough people to bring enough magic walls to block nicely.

    Nope man, but nice try


    3. Timing: If you stop attacking after one swap the swapped char ist still trapped (and you can easily swap him back whereever you want him to be if you have an organised team) Those being trapped have then the only chance to self attack themselves with a fire field to be able to swap again as far as I know.

    Well, this has something to do with the 5th way, although it's a bit more complicated. Morindal spoiled the 3rd already: NPCS and not pushable creatures (out of summonable ones) can't be swapped. Same goes to stacks with them on top.


    4. Like written, non pushable creatures and NPCs (dont understand why they were not added to the "pushable" creatures) help greatly to block someone

    You're close: FFRs may help you

    We were talking about lower pallies and knights without mlvl 9. If you are able to shoot a mwall, you can survive there, yes.

    Didn't know that, don't have a character to try out the feature on the test server atm. I thought you have to click on someone in order to swap with him. Let me repair that point:

    -The player's mouse AND keyboard stop working so he cannot swap anymore

    You found 2 of his 5 which really is extraordinary for me. You should use that luck to play in the lottery

    Ain't mere luck. Skillz, skillz.

    And I hope you know this and previous (half of the) post were intended to be a joke.

    [Back to the topic] If I found out 2 or even 3 ways to trap a person within this short time I was online on test server all those nolifers should've found out billions of techniques already.

    Sure thing, dude

    And there is no general method to trap someone anymore. There is few cases with certain requirements in which you can do it but if you're playing it smart you won't have to fear to get trapped anymore

    I thought the last update was the last one but you took an another step to ruin pvp system,what can i say? Keep going,even tho we complain you never change your mind so its pointless to argue with you and your supporters such as Aleppe,who defends everything those made by Cipsoft though they're useless,bad or good doesn't matter for him he defend you all the way..

    And tell me, how long have you been testing it?
    Or maybe you just read about the feature and are complaining now? :)

    @Aleppe:

    yes I've read the whole thread before written anything, you can't call others ppl as ignorant if YOU don't know what you are talking about and is ignorant about it... my last post was very clear

    we don't care for you and we do not want to listen you braging about yourself, that you discovered something, that you was on a small selectiv group or whatever... you just sounds like an annoying pedant, stop talking about YOU and YOUR discovers, forget the word "I"... it'll be better for you and for us

    @ Mathenus:

    I'm insisting because the common sense says that one can't judge something without having previously understood it, and you haven't.

    Despite you don't have enough game knowledge / experience or simple time to test swaps possibilities, you keep judging swaps not knowing how they really work and their potential. Just an ignorant ( = the one who ignores something ) would act so.

    @ All those who want to know how swaps really work:

    Just message me after SS, and I'll show you what you need to know about swaps.

    I think it shouldn't be possible to swap with group of people for example with people on stack - I mean it shouldnt be possible to walk on stairs by swaping with peaople who are blocking stairs.

    A lot of discussion about this feature. I am very happy to see that discussion being lead in majority very constructively.

    The feedback does show that to really be able to assess this, it does take time to test it.

    The vast majority seems to like the main feature, namely that there is now an option for someone who is trapped.

    Most of the criticism concerns the effects of this on the so called "defense". Now, we have discussed a lot about this. Yes, there will never be a way to which everyone will agree, so yes, for some, this will be something they will not like.

    Currently, it seems that how it is now (except for the bug with the house doors), it is a very promising feature. So I do not plan to change the basic functionality of it. We will of course fix all bugs that might still be found.

    That's great but please add protection zones in blessing places and potions shops - these places are full of player killers.

    Edit/@Craban

    I am first and only one on server house owner. If I leave open door this means few players may enter to my house without invitation?

    ~Leree


    It was initially a bug, but now it should be fixed and no matter what people do they cannot enter your house even if the door is open. What Craban is currently referring to is the square next to your door not giving you to accessing swapping cause its currently counted as an open square when it isnt.

    Ofc if you want to be super safe you can always close your door every time you leave your house and maybe lock the door

    I just have one question, not sure where to ask it.
    How does this affect non-PVP?
    Some friends and I were hunting at the Draken's, and another group showed up and trapped us and lured the Draken Abominations, Draken Elites,and Draken Spellweavers. The sorc made it to the quest door but the other team/guild had someone standing in the door and the sorc could not get past him. And before you say anything this happened on a non pvp world. Something needs to be done about the luring and trapping done on non pvp worlds, or they will be owned by guilds that lure and kill other ppl for the fun of it. Most high lvl ppl on my main world are leaving or quiting for this reason. I am seriously thinking of not renewing premi on 4 accounts because of this. I have played for 5 years all but 3 weeks as a premi player. It would be nice if something could be done about the non pvp worlds, on the luring during quest services (POI,INQ,and Wrath of the Emperor)or luring in general. Sorry for the rant, but getting tired of the abuses going on on the non pvp worlds.

    Vast majority of people who don't like the changes are those who like to outnumber, PA people or have an advantage when it comes to the use of noobchars. Guess against who this update is meant to help?

    I've been on the rulling guild of my old server and left it by myself and made my weak Brasilian guild on a German Server and fought against the PA'rs for years making my little guild grown... fighting in defence, to earn our respect, I'm not opressor, I'm the freedom fighter, and guess what?
    I don't like the update

    Funny how at first they only invited non pvpers and peaceful GMs to test it! =D

    Pretty funny when you think the best way to test new pvp features is to invite people who have never been part of a war.

    Why not just stop the immense decline in pvp and make all servers non pvp now?

    I didn't say it's only the opressors, just that most people are. If you are heavily outnumbered and have to go defense after every action, I see that the changes can have a bad influence on you. I'm not sure yet whether or not CIPsoft will adapt some things for defenses but even if not, I still think the benefits outweight the loss of power of defenses.

    I hate when players from noob-pvp servers (aka non-pvp) says that new changes are really good idea. Why u say that its good for you if you never attacked any humman and u won't be able to use this on your server? U don't play on pvp server so u shouldn't speak in this conversation. Cipsoft, why u let non-pvp server to testing this new PVP THINGS? Ahh i know becouse this changes don't have nothing shared with PVP. May make new non-pvp server and give there exp for all x2 then nobody will play on pvp servers, and your problem with small amount of players on pvp server will be solved -.-. Cipsoft you just killing pvp on tibia. For this pvp most of players playing, and u just kick 'em. I won't comment pvp blessing and revange skull cause its lost my time...But like always ppl from non-pvp will support it, from pvp will disagree but you lead this wrong changes to tibia :X.

    Switching places is very bad for pvp. It's just a fact.

    This does NOT encourage players to put more effort in trapping because it's simply IMPOSSIBLE to trap.

    The only way to trap a person now is to have the first line (directly next to the player) NOT to attack the player.

    This makes knights useless. Is this what you want to reach with this update Cipsoft?


    Do you want to save some players that are stupid enough to get trapped, or are just not good enough in pvp and outsmarted by the enemy team, and therefore make knights useless in trapping, yet invincible when being trapped.

    This feature will break more than it heals, that's for sure.

    And again, a part of pvp, a VERY important part, will be destroyed.

    Please... PLEASE... PLEASSSEEEEE... DO NOT GO THROUGH WITH THIS IDEA, I LIKE THE REST BUT THIS ONE IT RUINS EVERYTHING.

    Swapping places just ruins Tibia's PVP Features and is not a good Idea... It should be taken out and Tibia would have improved this update.

    i guess you shouldn't add party damage as swap damage because the teams will just enter in party, atk eachother
    and go into the traps. Ofcourse they could do it with nubchars but they noobchars can be killed easily and dont have acess to some places.

    PVP

    I think that pvp is a very important part of the tibian experience, If you get killed is not nice at all specially if you are random killed (No reason).
    But if you kill someone that deserves it(thiefs,hackers,pks etc.)it is completly justified to do it or if your guild is involved in a war.
    Some people kill others for fun, others for personal reasons, and others just for making justice.
    Any of those are important reasons because lots of players just play tibia for killing people, thats fun for them.
    The new feature of swapping position is completly ruining the pvp experience, because trapping was one of the main tools of killing people.
    Im not a power abuser or a random pk, I just kill people who deserves it.
    Getting trap has never been that easy, you need really experienced player or a non experienced one to get real trapped (no way out).
    This is why I think that this new feature is not good or necessary.

    Yours.

    I really don't like this idea.

    It will be impossible to trap a war enemy who don't want to join war mode.
    It will be impossible to kill 300+ MS or 200+ EK if he will be able to run out from the trap.
    It will be impossible to keep enemies away from gaining cash!

    2 years ago, sunday, around 55000 people online, 900 on my world.
    Yesterday, 35000 people online, 250 on my world.

    That says all

    I think that you shouldnt be able to swap if you have pz lock ( red/black swords).
    I mean, besides you being able to stair-hop without dieing,if someone finally success to trap you, you can easily escape, that is not right, lol.

    Question: is swapping possible, if the characters trapping you are not attacking you and you're receiving pvp damage from distance?

    @Craban you should not remember but we talked a lot in private messages in the forum of Tibiabr.

    The only thing I'd like you to understand is simple: The world is not perfect.

    Wars, abuse of power, theft, also exist in the real world, you should not change this course. It may not seem, but is because of these problems that many learn what is right or wrong, because they have a chance to make a mistake and would like the old saying "We learn only when we make mistakes."

    You're trying to build a "perfect" world, where would encourage people to find good... and bad things, why not?

    Let people play their wars for reasons they believe, this way people grow up. Rest assured that the game itself teaches the right way for the players, list it to a player who plays and respect this game from 9 years.

    Regards,
    Pipao

    Regarding the PVP swap, I thought the delay lasts too long. As a knight, every time I used the swap feature, I would die. However, when I stood in one place, taking the hits, I had a better chance of survival. The thing is, as soon as there were many players attacking me, I would eventaully die since knights can't heal themselves efficiently. I'm not trying to be biast, but I really think you guys should give a second thought on how this swap works, especially for knights since the delay causes lots of time for the attackers to do the damage. Afterall, knights can only heal 600-700 HP per turn, if using UHP.

    hey, i'm telling you as an EK...the swap method is a trap for a knight. I used it several times in test, and every time it resulted in my death. I had better chance of survival just staying in one sqm and taking the hits!

    regarding it being impossible to kill a 300 mage or MS, I do not know...but I think it's safe to say your right. Since mages can use 1 spell to heal their HP to full OR use an energy ring to get out of a trap since they've got tons of mana.

    what I am trying to say is, knights as always get the worst of the 4 vocations.

    Ok there are 12 pages of discussion... I admit I didn't read it all, but I got important points to say here.

    First, I'd like to say I liked this swapping feature. Trapping and killing is not fair, but I think a defense is needed to END a battle.

    I want to ask one simple thing: why players can't be pushed on top of parcels, or other objects? I remember this problem began with Acko, when he started to make parcel and fire bomb traps, then people were able to climb as many parcels as they had in front. If we get the ability to push someone in a parcel or any other object, a single knight won't be able to perform defense, 2 at least will be needed, that can make traps possible, but a bit harder.

    Plus, it's still possible to make a defense with a parcel behind as I saw in Thais yesterday: we had this red skull EK, lvl 180 in a narrow corridor where only 5 players could shoot him, so the 1st thing is that he would never die. Then I tried to swap with him, placed a magic wall behind him, and I was trapped in front of him with my team behind me. So I asked one of my team members to atack me, but still I couldn't swap with that red skull cuz i atacked him before, and everyone else did the same... and couldn't get into his defense. another important detail, is that next to him there was an open door of a house, and i don't know if that had any influence.

    what i'm trying to say is that people learnt how to stair hop, yalahar is suck a safe place still, takes hours to kill someone if this guy is on a ladder, it's not even worth it, u can see people stacking all over the place.
    people learnt how to make defenses, how to combo, how to stack and hide players to lose pz... they learnt from the game and from the possibilities they had... so i think with new context, people will learn and use new tricks... and that might become even a bigger problem.

    I tested the swap feature in various traps, didn't from it. I do agree though the delays suck but they are not instant deaths like everyone is trying to make out . I think delays should not affect potion useage at all, the only thing that should stop a potion should be paralyze. Moving diagonal getting a swap delay map clicking none of these things should affect a characters healing no matter what the vocation is.

    Imagine now similar same situation. You random pk'd some low lvl and there is 20 people chasing you, because you are skulled' . They can't kill as long as you are not trapped, because they don't got time to count combo. They finally tapped you. But you have a friend druid, who's healing you, so you don't have to worry about healing delay while swaping. Your enemies can't kill you because they got no time to count combo, because they need to focuse on magicwalling to keep you trapped instead of counting combo. You managed to get out from trap by swaping and situation repeats over and over as long as you are out of supplies or your enemies give up because mages from enemy team get killed by immortal knights/high paladins.


    And about no defense option avialable. You really want to make this game peaceful world for everyone? You really wants every open pvp world became optional_pvp_alike? Wow, after all your game was mother of pvp, you destroyed it while old updates and you will completly destroy all that left... sad wars won't be possible with no defense option. Cuz bigger teams win, any pvp skills not needed anymore sad but true

    If the swap position is implemented, you've completely ruined the pvp aspect of the game, and I applaud you for ruining the game even more.

    But I don't expect you to change anything even if everyone says its bad, it's not like you ever do.

    Game = 25% dead

    This feature is really amazing, not only because it brought more fun to the whole pvp environment, but because it finally revealed the lack of pvp skills all around.

    I guess what would happen if CIP would remove HKs: all knights, right?

    This is just lame for open PVP worlds, cause In war we actually spend a lot of time and takes a lot of effort to trap someone, and is not like it's really unfair and awfull for the trap to be traped, he already has the oportunitty not to be trap and not to be killed, and if someone really doesnt want to be trap, killed etc etc... he can easily move to an optional pvp world and play tibia in peace all he wanted to, or just have the brains to not to get themselves into traps. You guys should stop caring about Open pvp worlds, and focus on Optional pvp worlds, where there SOO MUCH MORE POWER ABUSERS, BOTTER, BUG ABUSERS, GAME FEATURES ABUSERS, etc. Since in those worlds you don't really have the chance to deffend yourself, but you guys are really taking the chance for world-pvpers to deffend ourself like we normally do, and making tibia a whole non-pvp rpg. Remember the mayority of tibians found usefull and likable the old PVP features and as you guys are implementing all this useless aspects, lots of old players are leaving, and common, with no players you can't target to make new ones... and with Cero willing to offend, it sounds a little bit hipocryte for me, all those times you're "TESTING" anything we players found "DISGUSTING" u guys just listen a minor group of players and implemented it anyways

    Well, I know this post isn't constructive, but I want to understand what are the reasons and the goals of swapping. I've never had problems with traps made my main/war mode chars. All I want is to prevent noob characters trapping people (specially in war mode), that's all. I do not really get what's wrong in making traps in wars using war characters or trapping people by PKs. It's a part of the game and IMPORTANT feature in Open PvP servers.

    I'd really appreciate if someone could explain this to me


    Yours,
    Azzy
