So last week we posted a thread
announcing a change to hitlisting. The idea was to give players a 60 second window where they couldn't be listed again by the same person in a row. We got a lot of feedback about that from you, and so we held off on making the change until we could come up with a better approach.
The issue we are trying to solve is that some players have been getting chain listed by players outside their level range, and we've heard a lot of complaints about this from people who feel that it prevents them from playing and that it's not very fun. However, in some cases, players are acting like jerks in the chat or attacking higher levels and opening themselves up to being listed, and we want to preserve this ability. We also want to preserve the ability of higher levels and people in the same fight range to chainlist and chainrig each other, as this is something many players say they like.
Our idea now is to give people an option, selectable under the Game Settings menu on desktop (this is coming to Mobile soon as well.)
- In this mode, the game behaves as it currently does. Anyone can hitlist you, as often as they like, up until the Protection limit when you are able to block them for 3 days. You can also rig anyone listing you back and try to kill or inconvenience them through chain rigging.
- Any player outside your fight range can only list you once every 60 seconds, and you can only rig them once every 60 seconds. You can still be listed by multiple people at once, but you will always get time to play the game normally between lists from a single player.
Please let us know how you feel about this proposed change, and any other comments you have; is 60 seconds too long? Should you be able to rig at all under option 2? What about listing people outside your own fight range? Thanks in advance!
