Basically, I fight one battle, and by the time I go to the next person on my list, I get hit twice frequently, and sometimes more. I have 2 questions:

1. It takes me about a half second to select my next opponent and hit fight. How am I getting double-tapped in between battles?

2. If I am killed once, shouldn't it be impossible for me to be killed again (excluding the possibility of the auto-heal happening at that particular time) before I challenge a new battle, this healing myself?

Basically, I don't understand how I can be killed 2, 3, or 4 times in a row without healing in between.

Each time you hit 'fight', you do heal. Even if you try to fight a comatose opponent.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] February 8 2008 3:07 PM EST

perhaps you challenged a comatose opponent, thus healing yourself?

RVT February 8 2008 3:12 PM EST

I was going to type something else, but just realized what you mean. That is weird. Its like your opponent is basically hitting fight, repeatedly on your character.

bartjan February 8 2008 3:13 PM EST

It's called farming. Highly effective, if you want to burn a lot of BA in a short time ;)

Colonel Custard February 8 2008 3:14 PM EST

bart and dude: Thanks, but I'm already aware of that. I paid close attention to avoiding doing that before I made this post.

If I click "fight" and I get a botcheck before my fight, does that heal me as well? Because that may explain one or two of those.

bartjan February 8 2008 3:15 PM EST

Tip: watch your score while you are fighting. If it goes down while you are winning, you are being farmed...

bartjan February 8 2008 3:15 PM EST

I believe a botcheck also counts.

j'bob February 8 2008 3:30 PM EST

I don't see any "four times in a row" but that is NOT to say it doesn't happen. And CC, i say this with out an ounce of anger or sarcasm, but it's funny to read this post when your name appears on my fightlist 2x a minute without fail! And yes, if I'm fighting at the time it has hit 3x's in the same minute. Life on the farm. :D

Colonel Custard February 8 2008 3:34 PM EST

hehe j'bob. But when I'm farming you, you can avoid getting hit too much by stopping fighting until I'm out, whereas this fight log of mine would suggest that I can't necessarily stop/slow it by not fighting.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 8 2008 3:37 PM EST

you can be hit twice in between fights if your opponent is fast enough

j'bob February 8 2008 3:46 PM EST

"hehe j'bob. But when I'm farming you, you can avoid getting hit too much by stopping fighting until I'm out, whereas this fight log of mine would suggest that I can't necessarily stop/slow it by not fighting"

Now that is funny!!!! I'M supposed to stop fighting so you can pummel me for a while? And anywho when you're pummeling Chame, I've noticed your fightlist is kinda small so there's (almost) NOTHING that's going to save me much.
Regardless, I'm still not complaining. I know some people get tired of seeing my name in their battle logs. Its just life and i've accepted it.
But you keep making m laugh!

AdminLamuness February 8 2008 4:01 PM EST

You do not get healed before a fight. You get healed after the fight.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] February 8 2008 5:23 PM EST


j'bob, what he's saying is: if you stop fighting, he can only hit you the "normal number of times", costing you no more clanpoints than if you were at Walmart while he was fighting.

If you keep fighting, while he's farming you, he can use all his BA on you instead of only "the normal number". If you get 20 fights per minute and he gets 22 wins against you per minute, you are losing substantially more clanpoints, for instance, compared to if he could only get you 2 or 3 times a minute, and you got to earn your 20-fights-worth without being attacked at all.

Mikel February 8 2008 6:08 PM EST

If your connection is slow, then it is possible to be hit more than once before your fight finishes.

j'bob February 8 2008 11:16 PM EST

Bast; I understood what he's saying, but thanks. My point is only that sometimes I don't have time to sit back and wait for panda to finish with his ba before i can use mine. I either use it and go or just go. (of course sometimes i have all the time in the world and guess what... he's not hitting me! lol). So its either get no points and no exp, or get some points, lose a bunch to panda, and get at least some exp for the ba that i might not get back to later. Know what I mean?

but just to make CC feel better...

of special note is the 11:06 minute. Note how many hits he got in a row. I'm fairly sure i was "sitting" on someone else while that was going on so I would have to guess that your character is actually healed EVERY time you click, weather it becomes a fight or just the "coma" notice.
:D
just a bit of food for the melon.

"perhaps you challenged a comatose opponent, thus healing yourself?"

Yes. Submitting a fight, whether it happens or not, allows someone else to get you.
