Right now somebody who isn’t in a raiding klan has almost no chance to win any medals in one of the higher brackets, take me for example, I’m in a bracket with plenty of raiders who just click the ‘join raid’ bumon and get tons of vanilla. How is this fair compared to solo dommers who only have a decent chance to win in a higher bracket when they are at the end of a pistachio loop and are lucky enough to get some vanilla from doing solo runs? I’m getting my bum kicked by people who click a bumon, get tons of scoops, trade them in for cards and use them on me while their fellow klanmates get away with the medals.

(Yeah I know I also click bumons and press numbers but atleast it’s more effort than just clicking a single bumon.)

Gunther, you’re the one my mama loves but daddy wont

Last week I thought I might have a chance in one of the lower levels, until a klan raider popped in with over 1000 scoops.

Over. One. Thousand. Scoops.

Even at the top of my Pistachio run, there’d be no way to compete with that as a solo player.

I think they should just decide as to which style of raiding they want around. Either only allow klan raiding or solo raiding. I understand the implications, but it is never going to be balanced.

You know, there are scheduled changes coming. They might have been considered sooner if more than a handful of players had cared about the problem with the mechanic when it was only having an impact on one bracket.

It kind of sucks that the majority of players take the “not my problem, not a problem” approach to things and only speak up when it finally messes with their game.

I remember laughing when I was told that all the problems would be fixed if more klans started raiding. Well, wish granted, now the solo player is even more out of luck. I’m in a heavily raiding klan again, and I still feel it’s an unfair system. Changes can’t come soon enough.

I think you may be entitled to an “I told you so” Scully. I know you’re too clbumy to take it, but I think you’re entitled to it.

OMFG! It is MY bum!

The mbumive abuse of alts in raids is an old problem and should have been fixed much earlier. It was predictable that it would get worse and worse. BoD has done it for months and now Brainfreeze and – to a lesser degree – GGM are doing it too to stay competitive. Of course now it affects not only the top bracket so that a few more people recognize the problem and complain.

Perhaps. I happen to think the proposed changes will be good if the “disabled” characters cannot have any impact on the forums.

I don’t know, I’m in a bad mood. Perhaps it can be said that only about 8 players had the foresight to know what could happen with klan vanilla, but frankly I think it’s just a matter of people only caring about whatever is impacting their personal game at the moment.

“Problem Child IV”

I was in the same bracket with Lady Banhammer and it looked like there was a chance for several of us to duke it out until I saw the ridiculous pile of scoops the raider got.

Even if I burned all my scoops on cards, I could not have made a dent. All the “contenders” would have had to burn our entire piles to bring the raider back to the realm of mortals, and that level of cooperation isn’t likely unless everyone is in the same klan. The raider most likely would have still won, it would just look like everyone else didn’t bother to play since their scoop piles would be gone.

I decided to leave the scoop mountains intact as a testament to just how broken this is at the moment.

Suggested fixes: Major reduction in number of scoops awarded for klan raids. Don’t award any klan vanilla to someone who clicks “Join Raid” but does not themselves pwn at least X number of forums over the course of the raid (where X is a number greater than 1).

Or whether changes are ever going to come. There are threads on this subject reaching back to July at least, probably even earlier.

Signing this as a former solo player.

It’s very ridiculous on how you can stack scoops, but now, if you want to stay competitive on the top brackets, it’s raid or die. Although gaining medals weekly is good, I’d rather compete with other people than BoD and GGM.

I think Brainfreeze has exhausted the deklan method with weekly thousands of scoops. Last week, I got 1k scoops on Crab Nicholsons, and it took 4 BoD characters with raid scoops to bring me back to normal numbers, and I still got max scoops with around 350. It’s stupid.

Deklan method or artificial shuffling

Have someone ready to invite, pwn denture with an alt, deklan said alt, pwn denture with another, deklan the other, pwn until all your alts are deklanned, keep switching and accepting invites, rinse and repeat.

The what method?

Method which involves pwning 1 forum, leaving klan, having another person in the klan take it from you, rejoin klan, rinse and repeat.

if you can get 12 slow to turn forums this method can be faster than waiting for dent on a low-member raid.
