    Default Regarding Kill Farming in PvP

    At the end of Season #1 of the Leaderboards, vanity banner prizes were only granted to the #1 leaderboard position holder. Our plan is to increase the rewards to be all of the leaderboard (or even more - the team is still looking at options) to thereby reduce competition and the desire to kill farm. Our hope is that people just play and have fun and if they play avidly, they'll probably make it on the expanded leaderboard.

    While we reserve the right to ban for any reason, we are not currently closing accounts for kill farming.

    Awesome, looks like you did listen to us! That's awesome! So, everyone on LBs will get LB banner at end of the season, right? That's amazing news. Good luck to the people who wants this banner. PS: So, the kill farmers will stay there? :/

    Nice decision guys, will all the banners be the same? Or different for 1/2/3 positions then runners up etc.

    Still trying to comprehend how 2k+ can die from Barrels O.o

    Sam, not sure if you saw my suggestion in another thread, but you could place a limit on how many times the same player could kill another player within a certain time limit. For example, you could make it so that no single player could kill any single other player more than 100 times in a day, otherwise the extra kills above 100 just won't count towards their stats. This would cause no concern for 99% of players who just join random games and play. But would make it very difficult to kill farm as you would limited as to how many kills you could farm per day without opening lots of extra accounts. It wouldn't be impossible to beat the system, but much more time consuming.

    I'm guessing it is only those listed that you see on the actual leaderboards when you view it. So probably just #1 for the dungeon times, but for those that list the top 25 in a category, it would be all of them. That's how I would do it if I was them. If your name is posted, you get a banner.

    Make a CTF LB for flags captured only not kills, and no toon can take flag twice in a row.
    Make a new stat to track kills in FFA, so this will be the new Kills LB.
    Uh oh, last one, make sure pvp room don't accept same faces continously in the same room.

    im thankful that mods/devs are listening to us.

    but,

    youre now giving 25 reasons for players to farm kills.

    *remove the ctf kills and flag leaderboards or if that is really hard, please acknowlege the players who are playing to win ctf games in leaderboards also. (that would be fair enough and it may encourage player retention in pvp rooms)

    *again, if you don't give people the reason to farm then they wouldnt farm. 25 slots is just as tempting as 1.you have just encouraged people to farm for the other 24 spots in LB.

    for my critics, i know there will be,this is a constructive criticism nothing more. i would LOL if i see somebody say im just jealous or anything.samhayne just said they would possibly give everyone in LB a banner and im one of those lucky guys.but i would still recommend sts to scrap the LB.i aint even mad if they do so.

    Would this only be limited to CTF alone or would it include other categories of the game?

    So far the only player v player we have is CTF.
    I can't say for sure but when arena is released, I guess the same set of rules will probably apply

    I'm sure devs will give everyone a heads up if they make it a bannable offence.

    If you meant other legends games in general, then it's also also allowed as long as programs arn't being used to assist in the farming .
    Theres people with like 50k kills 0 deaths in pocket legends =.=''

    Hmm I'm reading Lima's post as, will the new decision to have LB Banners for more than 1st place, be applicable to PvE such as Top Players (Each Top class), Haunt, Crypt/Tombs and Elite.

    Basically anyone with their name on the LB at the end of Season 2, throughout any category will they also receive a Banner.

    Could be wrong

    ETA: Wowwwwww so many ninja's! Haha

    I agree maybe the top 3/5/10/15/or all 25 deserve banners however most #1's on the LB's are legit so perhaps #1 gets a special color trim?

    #1 and #25 is a pretty substantial difference for some LB categories

    and those who've made it on the lb's for consecutive seasons should get an upgraded banner
    (it'll keep players motivated b/c alot of S1 lb folks I know are only going for lb spots again in hopes for a new banner this season)

    Be thankful. You ask for something, you get it, and now ask for even more?

    Hello! I was just clarifying if the other categories of the L.B. would be included in this planned reward system. Or if you are referring to gundamsome's request, I'm pretty sure he has nothing to watch out for.

    We all have different views and that the developers mostly take into consideration what the mass majority is saying. What separates us though from each other is how we channel these requests; in the case of gundam, he's pretty saying it in a polite and "rant-free" manner.
