I also think that such an attitude would force people to talk to one another more OOCly instead of being blockheads under the guise of "iT's WhAt mY cHaRaCtEr WoUlD dO!" and then shirking any repercussions by mashing that Fugue portal out and refusing raises, which has happened so many times it drives me insane.
Subdual is now the defaul state of PvP as far as I recall, and my thing was specifically toward people who respawn.
Agreed. Corpsebashing has always seemed like a poor-taste or bad manners option to be reserved for when someone has been a turd OOCly. Even then, trashbins exist.
Yeah. I'm by no means condoning head-hunting MoD folks. I AM condoning stupid people who don't take accountability for their actions being smashed.NMan7496 wrote: ↑Mon Jun 29, 2020 5:41 pmWhat I think Jack was trying to say was that these people will be, constantly, getting themselves into stupid RP situations, where the only way out is PvP, which ends in their death.

I don't believe he was, at all, implying that we can (or even insinuating that anyone should be) purposefully killing characters with MoDs just to permakill them.
As an added bonus, this sort of MoD would make "Epic Heroes" even more Epic. You actually ARE risking life and limb by being a stalwart knight who stands up to evil no matter what, but you also have to acknowledge that you may not live as long as you'd quite like.
For reference, Fixed Level had this system and it seemed to work pretty well for making people accountable for their actions. But Fixed Level was also kinda... Weird. In other ways.
Also, for note, this is just my stance as a player and is not reflective of any upcoming changes (that I know of) or the team as a whole.
