    Default Goblin event, can the barriers be changed?

    Dear devs,

    First of all, very nice designs and stuffs that we are able to get! Secondly, I wanted to ask if there is a possibility to remove the barrier, the barrier that we can only remove by all mobs in the event zone.

    Not because we do not want to kill mobs, but more likely because some people wait on the portal and simply kill the boss while you are running back from the mobs :/ maybe you could look into this. Thanks in advance!

    There's a teleporter to get back there very quickly. I guess if this is an actual problem there could be a time delay after enough goblins are killed before the barrier drops, or have to destroy the barrier after it's weakened or something.

    Can the boss be programmed to drop loot and give points to those players far away from him? There are people who run in random with ss and do not wait on people so when they kill the boss; the player far away doesn't get rewards. I haven't ran yet but just a suggestion if this is not already in the game.

    That's one reason why the barrier and teleporters are there. I haven't heard anything from people actually playing it to indicate there's a real problem yet.

    It kinda gets annoying when u leave 1 mob by mistake and have to search the whole map to find the mob and someone kills the boss while u returning. Maybe You could give loot to everyone in the zone even if not near boss as suggested by encryptions.

    We'll see what feedback we get on it and maybe make adjustments, but likely not today.

    it's right encryption perspective. But you should consider another point of view aswell: what for all players who spend millions on speed awake gears to runs faster (which is the key for leaderbords runners)..and they gets slowed done by that barrier? It pisses off I guess.

    If they're slowed down by the barrier, either they're doing it wrong, or the other leaderboard runners are slowed down by the same amount, which makes it irrelevant.
    If there are changes, it will be in the interest of preventing people from missing out when there are inconsiderate people there.

    We also certainly wouldn't change it to reward everyone in the zone, as that just means people hanging out at the zonein waiting for their rewards.

    Probably not - it doesn't make sense for all of them, but we're trying various things to deal with people that can't be considerate of their groupmates, and this is one of them (like starting areas, requiring miniboss kills, etc).

    Fair enough! The Arlorian Egg Hunt starting area was a great implementation!

    Remove barriers and make a circle close to the boss area. The circle requires all players to enter (like in Vardan maps), so the boss spawns?

    That way, all players will have to move, and none will miss the rewards because of movement speed. (kick those who don't enter the circle after 1 minute or something)

    Edit: Or make all the players touch the last barrier so it goes down. >_>;

    Also needs to not be griefable. We'll consider it.

    Yes there are people who are just waiting at the barriers for others to down the mobs. A few times I barely made it back with SS to get loot. A timed barrier drop after the last mob is down like 10 sec seems like it would be best. If everyone in zone enters before that then boss can start or something. Then it wouldnt slow us down and would give everyone a fair chance to get the loot.

    We're planning on something like this for tomorrow's update.

    I realised that most players with no ss has enuf time to reached boss area if they just run to the boss area while other ss runner clears the map.
    But if they(no ss) take wrong path, they won't be able to reched boss area. I guess this help many players that don't have ss

    10 seconds is too much imo, maybe if it was 3-5seconds I think it would make runs much better, u get to the barrier in time and don't have to wait too much till barrier goes down

    Please Sts can you revert it back to how it was before or just remove this nonsense for parties and make it for randoms only

    This new system is designed to do what exactly? Slow us down? Use less kits? Kill us with frustration and boredom?

    Someone decides they do not want to spend on a speed set and leaves it to the rest to clear all the mobs and the side paths and waits at the barrier and WE are the inconsiderate ones?

    One thing i can tell you for free is that the ones you have made the changes for ARENT the ones spending plat to support your game. The ones you are annoying ARE. If you cant afford a SS you are not going to be running event with plat.
