    So as some of you may know there are, in some peoples opinion, flaws in the JPA and the mechanics of how it works.

    Issue number 1: Running Citadels
    The tactic here is that someone runs around the entire JPA to avoid getting hit until the very end when the rad zone gets bigger, the player with the most hp at the end wins and since the Citadel is capable of having so much hp it wins automatically, without even fighting. Example of tactic in action.

    Idea of solution:
    Make it so that the person has the biggest percentage of HP wins, not just the most out-right.

    Issue number 2: Warping
    This one is new, only 1 day old, a player uses the ultimate cloak ability in spearhead. They then warp into another spearhead and use ultimate cloak, rinse and repeat until the end then warp into a citadel or goliath and win by default due to having most hp at the end of the 5 minutes. Example of tactic in action.

    Idea of solution: Warping is disabled.

    Now I am fully aware that these tactics are completely legal, the second one is genius. However it was to my understanding that this event was made to decide the best fighter in DarkOrbit and give them a reward for being so. Yes, 10,000 is on the line but it should go to the best fighter, not the best runner.

    Edit: Turns out the 2nd one isn't entirely legal; ultimate cloak is a banned ability in JPA.

  2. Hmm you have some very good logic their, plus 1 from me
  3. I second your ideas here.
  4. i third
  5. I like these ideas and support them fully. There is one thing I need to question, however. I have, in the past, had an Group member use Solace's Skill to repair my Ship when in a Galaxy Gate. It was useful to have, because I wasn't FE at the time and the last wave of GG Zeta didn't like me very much.

    Does this work in JPA, or has it been disabled? If it does work, then I'd like to see it added to your list of suggestions. My gut's telling me it won't/doesn't work, but I honestly wouldn't know if it does.
  6. I have had the same thing happen to me as has happened to Darth. If you have been in the same map as that player with Solace before you enter a gate or JPA then for some reason their nano cluster DOES repair your ship not just flash up. I got saved in a gate once due to it. I then died from lagg haha. I have had someone tell me that their NME got nano clustered in JPA yesterday WHILE in a Goli Venom. I think what they need to do is make it so you cannot be in outfits while in JPA to prevent these effects, No Warping And as for the HP thing. Maybe incorporate a system so that the system can see who was running like a wimp with his pants on fire and who was chasing. Therefore the runner automatically loses. As Okapi said: Might be 10k but it IS about the best fighter. Not the biggest Wimp.

    I've done roughly 70 fights in JPA and never come across the Solace being used from another player to repair my opponent, the JPA might as well be another server, it would be like repairing someone in 2-8 from 2-1.
    I did JPA in HKM and Cry teamspeaks too and nobody in there ever mentioned it happening either.

  9. Yes +1 because some clever people could easily win by doing this and not be good at fighting and this will never determine the best fighter on the game +1 from me!!
  10. yes because people have won by doing it
  11. Yeh as shown in that video :L it's just not right for people to win that way :L

  12. I've been running to those Citadel users like 5-6 times in JPA and it's so frustrating to not be able to fight and just pop.. So i fully support this.
  13. Lol the spearhead one? That kept running and ultimately cloaking?
  14. Yeh that's just rediculos :p he should have the money taken away from him :L
  15. its been found that its against the rules to cloak either normal or ultimate cloak
