The Good Siege Thread

I figure enough people make individual threads to say good siege and discuss to make a thread for everyone that hopefully doesn't get buried quickly (that means no screaming HAX!)

Good siege heavensfury! Thanks for being cool Simeia and talking with me and don't worry about necra I understand the frustration, I really do lol

I gotta clear up a few hundred gigs of footage before I can record again :(

I hope someone develops software that encodes while recording, would make my life a lot easier

We spent the last couple nights getting pounded in siege (ask Bakken) good siege though zid, even though the siege server was a bit laggy. Can't wait to see the full guild next time!

Btw, this thread has now become the "good siege HF vs _____ thread."

And we'll be doing the same :cool: Seriously though, Us-US siege is horrifying enough. I popped physical immune and got killed by lowblow 1 second later. WTB better server farms.

(oh god, now half my guild is reading this thread, I have to watch what I'm posting then o.o)

I hate how the timing is unreliable on just about everything. Sometimes my shadow prison looks like it's only active for a single second and normally I'm lucky to get more then three.
Or fearless is supposed to last about as long as a tower cap and have had many enemies bubble cap when bubble starts right as they start taking it yet I've been on the 3rd tick and fearless runs out before it's capped...

Diminishing effect of stuns applies to shadow prison as well. Thats not exactly ROM 101, but its still freshman year.

There are elites that do this too.

... But discussing game dynamics & expressing frustration over them is not really in the spirit of this thread either :)

As far as I knew Shadow Prison was the only skill that had diminishing effects when spammed.

I mean when warriors spam all their knockdowns on me I have more problems getting stun-locked than when rogues think it's a good idea to SP spam.

Stuns dont have diminishing effects, iirc only shadow prison and numbing dagger (and its lvl 60 elite version) have diminishing effects.

Blasting cyclone, shout, discharge, etc do NOT have diminishing effects due to their cooldowns already limiting their use.

Good siege btw. Tell Ebi nice try and Elmago he almost got me :)

Good siege? o.o I was just screwin around the whole time, didn't even buff. I think Elma and Ebi were trying to make you guys waste Rice though so I don't know if they buffed at all.

We didn't quite have the geared numbers to fight back on that siege so my approach was just screw around, I should have gotten Kef on and done the same thing that they were doing though.

Also, thing about the warrior skills is W/K have a big advantage with that having their throw shield, I don't know if you can perma stun lock or not but it seems likely that you can for atleast an extended period of time.

Drakenbakken talking about Shadow Prison not lasting... Remember that there are abilities that break stuns. And SP, since it's just one ability that lasts... 8 seconds? It's an easy thing to break. If it were an ability that quickly refreshed the stun, then it would be a different story (Charged Chop does that?). Everyone has access to the gloves to break it, and some classes have abilities as well (Ignore Pain warrior, Overrule champ, maybe more).

Not saying that's all that goes on, but could be a factor many times.

Oh, and Good Siege to Cubalibre.

Even though it's about the 4th siege with roughly same result, you all had plenty of people willing to put up a fight, not give up, and had some modest successes. Also allowed me to set a new personal record for kill count, so I was happy about that. Hope you guys get a little stronger (not too much!) and we get matched up again.

Well, not very polite to say "That siege was boring, wish I would have died atleast once" :P

I don't feel like I ever "waste" egg rice unless the buff times out...which it did. So I guess you guys succeeded in that regard o.0 I have stacks and stacks left, so I'm not too worried about any individual siege in the nearby future draining my supply. Hell, sometimes I pop it just to check what my new buffed pdef would be xD

Yeah I wish I had that kind of supply, hell I'd fight battles like that if I and my guild did. I use mine pretty sparingly, when the battle is close and stuff.

IF Gameforge decided to sell them I'd stock up on a ton (assuming they were fairly priced), it's dumb that when they did sell them, I wasn't around to be able to buy them since it was my break from RoM.

But yeah, my goal in sieges where winning is either unviable or not preferred regardless (if we won we would have gained a ton of points and had to lose a bunch of sieges to get to a level where it doesn't require everyone to show up every night) is to just troll the siege and make everyone waste their time on the opposite side.

Not that we could've won but it's fun to cockblock the opposing guild from destroying our gates.
