Reduce bot-checks for forgers. (in General)


Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] March 9 2009 8:36 PM EDT

I just got a bot-check 9 times through 30 ba. Seems to be a bit much, its for surely a nuisance and outdoing its purpose. >:o

I see no reason to reduce them; you just hit a bad streak of bot checks. Bot checks for forgers are as common as bot checks for fighters, and both serve the same purpose.

bot check frequency just got cut in half, so i don't see another reduction in frequency any time soon if ever again.

It may seem like bot checks pop up a lot when forging, but there isn't a shortened fight list like fighters have, so we use BA a lot quicker.

That's one good thing about forging. I can finish a whole set of BA in about 2 mins.

"bot check frequency just got cut in half"

They did? When?

like a month and a half ago ranger, where have you been?

I cannot find it.

Thanks.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] March 9 2009 11:02 PM EDT

Was it cut for forging too or just fighting?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] March 9 2009 11:03 PM EDT

no prob at all, it should have been marked with a changelog post at the least!

QBRanger March 9 2009 11:03 PM EDT

I read it as all botchecks as how Jon phrased it.

However, I am not the definitive authority on it.

TheHatchetman March 9 2009 11:10 PM EDT

I think the bot check spring is set to the BA ticker, which doesn't discriminate between the two... ^_^

i would agreed to there being more Bot checks while forging than fighting, only because you burn BA faster forging than fighting.

Wow, I totally missed that bot check reduction!

Thanks, Jonathan!

I'm not sure I get why rate of burning ba should effect your bot-checks.

QBRanger March 9 2009 11:25 PM EDT

Yea Sut,

Seems it got buried in a random thread.

Someone should make a changelog about it.

Daz March 10 2009 12:11 AM EDT

Well. I thought there was a reduction, but didn't actually say anything. That's good! I stopped reading that thread when the image was posted, maybe a bit after.

QBOddBird March 10 2009 12:12 AM EDT

You just had a bad streak.

I've run through 100 of my BA without a check when I got lucky.

I moved it to the CL forum
