Title: Enough Fences Already
Post by: Billy Bubba on 12:58:53 AM 02/21/14
It looks like someone has individually fenced in the squares of about 1/4 of the city.

Enough is enough...come on!

They're easy to destroy, and the area with all the fences has been destroyed and is still being torched down by alts.

You can easily just destroy fences, they got down in 6 or so hits. Or move to other suburbs without that much fencing lol. That's like complaining that there are too many barricaded buildings. What do you do to get rid of that? Tear it down, if you fancy. It's supposed to hinder the undead, if you are a pro-undead player then, it's supposed to be a problem for you lol.

It it a problem for anyone when you are stuck in the center of an 8-10 block area with each square individually fenced off. Stopping the undead? They stop everyone. I log on to actually play. To go out, hunt undead, kill things, heal survivors... the usual. Using all my AP just to move 5 or 6 spaces? Not exactly a good time.

Sounds like you're a human, just RTR around if they're that bad.

Nobody has been fencing lately because of users in the game throwing a tantrum over them and threatening people who use them.

I'd hardly call this a "tantrum", but I question the game function of something that exists solely to prevent people from being able to move and actually play the game. Fencing of an area, or a building? That's one thing. Individually fencing in building after building after building? That's just asinine and serves no purpose.

You'd hardly call somebody threatening other people in game because they're using in game items a "tantrum"?

They were put in to hinder the undead, and that's what they were being used for.  We wouldn't need to put so many fences if they were harder to knock down and if 2 people in game weren't using 40 alts each to destroy them.

Like I said before, it's unfortunate that you got stuck somewhere, but seeing as humans have the Rooftop Run ability, and you should be hiding inside buildings instead of out in the open, its way easier to get around with that ability. It serves the purpose of making it as difficult as possible for undead to move around. Find a suburb that isn't too fenced up, hunt NPCs til you can get the ability, then you should have no more issues with fences.

I haven't threatened anyone. How about you knock off the hyperbole?

We were talking about sig, but its nice to know you're willing to admit that you are him :)

I'm proud of you Sig.

Did you forget your bitchfit in Chatzy where you told us to quit using fences or you'd make more alts?  Did you not point out that there was various glitches in the coding in the tinychat?

Stop hiding behind fake names and stop pretending like you aren't mowing down the game with an army of alts.  It's pathetic.

You have me confused with someone else. I'm not "Sig". I'm Billy Bubba. I've been around since April 2007, having migrated over here from Urban dead. I lead the Fort Howard Defense Force and the USMC groups, as well as being a former member of the Hell Rising All-Stars. Yup, I do have a couple of alts, most of us old timers do. However, I have nothing to do with any "bitch-fit" or threats.

Seriously, if you want pathetic? It is tossing out false accusations from atop a high horse.

"I haven't threatened anyone."

After I said users in the game have been threatening us.  Notice I've never pointed out any names?

BB - I'd hardly call this a "tantrum"

BB - I haven't threatened anyone. How about you knock off the hyperbole?
A - I'm proud of you Sig. <meltdown>

<Rolls eyes and points up>

Whatever. You go on your little rant and then pretend what exactly? I'm still not Sig buddy boy.

A - Stop hiding behind fake names and stop pretending like you aren't mowing down the game with an army of alts.  It's pathetic.

Yeah, stop pretending that you know a damned thing about me. You want to talk pathetic? Reread your commentary pal. From zero to raging lunatic in an instant. Admit your mistake and move on.

Oh, in that case, if youre an old player that's just come back, I can see why the fences annoy you, but trust me, there are some people running ridiculous amounts of undead alts just to tear them all down, even if only key areas are fenced in, they take them down as fast as I can put them up. Only thing I can do is keep trying to protect places I don't want them to get to, but I think a few suburbs that arent as affected by fencing are East Underlook and Darkridge. I just go used to Rooftop Running around. I would rather spend a little more ap to get to a building than to have the barricades torn down minutes after I put it up.

Look again, I never said it was you.  You assumed I was talking about you which lead me to believe you were somebody else.  If you look just shortly below this topic and see the one about a guy named Sigfried, you'll understand.

You shouldn't have jumped to conclusions, so the problem is yours, not mine.
Title: Re: Enough Fences Already

Like I said, I understand trying to protect places. I get that. However, I had run out of AP in the middle of a street, got killed, got revived, and found myself in the middle of about 140 AP worth of fences...every single square, in all directions. That's a bit silly and overboard.

Heck, I liked the idea as announced of being able to create "Green Zones" I mean, I always wanted better ways to fortify Fort Howard back in the days of 50 people inside and 100 outside. One side fortifying as the other was tearing things down as quickly as possible.  Being able to get a good sized force in place and set up fences as extra fortification? That's AWESOME.

However, when every square is being fenced in? Yeah, that's just over-kill. The game only works if all races can log in and have fun. I cannot imagine spending 24AP or so just to get to a human wretch for a bit of combat and XP.

I suppose if undead get XP for tearing down fences, that would shade my view a little, because at least then they are accomplishing something other than drifting around in a see of virtual pits.

Akhart, you need a class in reading comprehension. Allow me to demonstrate since you continue to insist on being a smug ass.

A - Nobody has been fencing lately because of users in the game throwing a tantrum over them and threatening people who use them.
BB - I'd hardly call this a "tantrum", but I question the game function of something that exists solely to prevent people from being able to move and actually play the game.

See, there I'm pointing out that I'm not throwing a tantrum. I mean, obviously people ARE fencing because I was fenced in to all holy hell, but that is apparently besides the point.

A - You'd hardly call somebody threatening other people in game because they're using in game items a "tantrum"?

See, now here? Here you apparently think I'm threatening people because, as I've just said, I'd hardly call this a "tantrum". THIS. Do you understand what the word "this" means? So, either you have failed to grasp the basic nuances of the English language (and hey, you could be ESL for all I know) or you are accusing me of threatening people since you are replying to a comment I made about THIS thread.

BB - I haven't threatened anyone. How about you knock off the hyperbole?

I respond, pointing out that I haven't threatened anyone. I haven't by the way. Go ahead and read from page one. I'll wait.

See? No threats.

Then you melt down like a tired kid at the end of a day at Disney World.

So I'd get off your high horse. You've behaved like an ass. You are the one who flashed into his own private "Sig" 'Nam and went off on me, not the other way around. You could be a man, admit your mistake and move on, or you could continue to blame me for your poor behavior. Your choice.
