Ever get mad? (in General)

Kingkiller December 23 2010 12:41 PM EST

I was just curious if any of you out there take an actual offense to being farmed? I know I have been hammered by a few and it frustrates me, but not to the point of actually being mad. I just wanted some insight.

AdminTal Destra [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] December 23 2010 12:42 PM EST

Im getting hammered too, but everyone gets some, don't be mad

Kingkiller December 23 2010 12:47 PM EST

I don't get mad, was just curious if there are some out there that do.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 23 2010 12:55 PM EST

yes, over the years i cannot tell you how many times i have gotten cm's threatening some action or other or just cussing me out. granted it was usually when i was running an ncb and had a pretty limited fight list.

we have also had many guild members who were treated similarly. we usually try to educate the person in regards to how the game mechanics create the issue but that usually is real successful.

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] December 23 2010 1:01 PM EST

I've never gotten mad, but I did make a few people quite mad during my last NCB... and not b/c what I was doing, but b/c of me farming them.

Most of the people it bothers (like me) won't tell you.
Just adds fuel to the fire.
When you check your list and someone has hit you three times more than anybody else on your list it messes up your score and clan points bad,so yeah I get mad! LOL
Stalkers are just as bad in my opinion.
Nobody does it. It just "happens" they are fighting at the same time everyday you are hehe

Perhaps you're wondering if you make me mad, since I'm half your fight list. The answer is no. You single-handedly removed my clan bonus, since I'm a clan of one, but the answer is still no. I'm not mad about how you compete, and I hope Xeno isn't mad about me farming him, either. ;-)

I've learned that when it comes to getting farmed, there really isn't all that much you can do to stop it other then trying to counter the people farming you, which may or may not benefit you in the long run.

I can't say that I've ever gotten mad because of it, but I'll admit I got slightly annoyed when BluBBen drained my score by 1.5m a few times without me realizing it, causing me to brutally drain some of my inactive targets before I had a chance to take notice. A quick swap in minion placement put a stop to that though. Other then it being a minor inconvenience to me, by way of me not getting to keep those targets as long as I had hoped, I got over it pretty quickly. I also tried to help him find other targets to keep him from the brutal score drains on me until he hits my score range in which I told him I'd have no problem if he farmed me then.

Farmers gotta farm. Most of the people farming me now, there is legitimately nothing I can do about stopping them, so I don't even worry about it.

No. Farming is a perfectly legal and acceptable way to ensure your challenge bonus stays high. It's just good strategy.

I farm people a lot, and people farm me. I not only endorse it, I encourage it.

BadFish December 23 2010 1:25 PM EST

I wouldn't say I get mad, but I don't like it that the way the system works means you get slaughtered hundreds of times a day by teams you have no chance against, teams that outclass you by 3 million PR or more but don't have enough targets and have no negative challenge bonus so you are a viable target for them.

Farming ain't what it used to be. Cursed fight feed.

AdminShade December 23 2010 1:35 PM EST

I don't blame anyone for farming me, I blame myself for not noticing if it ever happens ;)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 23 2010 1:42 PM EST

I will re-iterate that I do get annoyed when my score gets cut in half by someone down low -_-

*sigh* there goes half my fight list for the time being.

Kingkiller December 23 2010 1:47 PM EST

I appreciate everyone's insight. I just wanted to make sure that it was common knowledge that farming is a legitimate strategy. Thanks for everyone input.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] December 23 2010 1:57 PM EST

Farming ain't what it used to be. Cursed fight feed.

farming has traditionally meant that people attack you while you are also attacking in order to take advantage of your auto-heal to avoid the timer.

what the op refers to is more just normal fighting in my mind or having a small fight list.

Fishead December 23 2010 2:00 PM EST

I don't get mad, I (try) to get even. It's part of the game, and finding ways to stop getting farmed without reducing my fight list keeps the game interesting. I also find it lonely down at the bottom, when you look at your battle log and no one cares to fight you. I say farm away! And prepare to be farmed!

Atomicboy [The Knighthood] December 23 2010 2:08 PM EST

Its part of the game, I just look forward for when I turn the tables and become the farmer. Oh so sweet !

Admiralkiller [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 23 2010 2:42 PM EST

Being mad about being farmed no. However a single person hit me 300+ times a day I may get mad (never happened).

I do feel that being farmed as a NCB that is doing well is counter productive. It's easy to farm a character moving up....1.5 million mpr and a score with 4.0-5.0million...I would too!

Maybe N*B's should only give 1/2 the points normal characters do but receive them like normal?

Bah who knows I don't think I would ever get mad, just annoyed like right now..I have been negative for two weeks but I have been fighting most my fights daily. If a person had a one or two man fightlist I would be mad or if they were purposely farming me to piss me off...yea...but that's not the case most the time for most the people. So I and others just live with it and keep pressing enter.

If the farming is ridiculous, I just put out a hit on their clan and farm them into the ground. That usually stops the farming.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] December 23 2010 3:09 PM EST

Nope I won't get mad. ^_^

In fact I would encourage people to try and farm me. It makes things more interesting. Of course I will be doing my best to make life as hard as possible for you to farm me.

Doesn't bother me, I am a firm believer that everyone here should be plowing someone else ;)

Too much fertile land here to be left untouched

Atomicboy [The Knighthood] December 23 2010 4:34 PM EST

we be tappin harder then tap farm!

AdminNightStrike December 23 2010 4:39 PM EST

You're dancing close to the border patrol, OB!

en1ac [Blood Pack] December 23 2010 5:20 PM EST

I get so mad, that once my BA is gone, I stop playing...
Then I start again in ~6 hours. :)

horseguy001 December 24 2010 8:44 AM EST

I find it rewarding when you get farmed over 100 fights a day, then its 95 fights and a few draws, then a bunch of losses, and then the shoe is on the other foot :)

Just part of the game.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] December 24 2010 10:06 AM EST

lol HG you just named my favorite thing to see happen in CB ever.
