Idling.
#15860

Lord Arikarr, The Adversaryto Everyone

Idling can only be determined by observation effectively, its almost

impossible to write a routine to check for it, comparing input to

time to determine whether someone is really there. I am in favour of

prevention rather than cure, and we all seem to be focused on nasty

things to do to idlers, so why not have very harsh, god-enforced

regulation? For instance, If I find someone idling, they are going

to get vamped, stripped and shipped. If they are PW or DP or in

a 'safe' location then I can't do that, so I woul like to see a

deity remove that protection, or even ditch the offending player

for their affrontary. Harsh? Yes. But is certainly going to

discourage AFK'ers, no?


A good deterrant is worth a thousand punishments, surely?


As far as skill imbalances are concerned, I have NEVER used

sleeplearn in my five years in Avalon, and I don't think I've

done too badly, even against those who sleeplearn their way to

All ults (something I am not, by the way).


Thought for the day - If you're coming to Avalon just to get

lessons for skills so you can kill people better, you're missing

out on the game.....
