    Abusing dryad

    First let me get this straight. This is not a whine thread about how BGs are unfair and ****. I like the new BG style right now. I think it is very fair and allows both lowbies and higher lvls be hte bully or be bullied. Overall gives fairness to everyone in the long run. The only thing I hate is the fact people abuse dryad boosts. No matter what BG bracket we have there will always be dryad abusers and I feel that dryad abusing should be against the rules. People should be banned for doing so because that isn't what dryad is meant for. Not to mention it gives the person the false interpetation of strength.

    They abuse dryad to get up ranks yet when they reach higher lvls and enter the new BGs they complain and wonder why they lose there rank so fast over and over again. it also makes the person think they don't need to get stronger bc they can just abuse dryad all day long. So my request is either some sort of punishment for people who abuse dryad, some sorta of negative effect for people abusing dryad( I.E. the more they abuse dryad the less honor they get from attacking someone.), or just an readjustment on how dryad works and how much honor one loses.

    I don't think dryad should be removed at all though. Dryad is very important in helping lowbies protect themeselves against the bullies in BG. However, like all good things people find ways to exploit it and make it a bad thing. Yes I know 7roads makes these things and not R2 games. However, in another company they put there own rules on spawn camping and that is a bannable offense. I believe since they are allowed to make up new rules. That R2 games should do so as well. Make rules for both spawn camping and dryad abusing. Both things make battlegrounds just plain stupid to be in. One shouldn't be afraid to enter BG to lose 1000s of honor or not get any honor/carts at all bc stuck in the spawn point. BG should be something fun for everyone to enjoy.

    Running carts for your team give you all point which hurts the other team. Killing cart runners is important to keep your team in the lead and thus get the better rewards

    I only have too suffer for 2 more weeks, then i have lord divine, and can focus on MPs .
    After those 2 weeks, will be able to sincerely say i will not miss the dryad people, or the people who team up on the one high honor rank player, just so they can get their honor xD.

    You need the Dryad I think ... since there is such a problem with higher levels camping on spawn point. Sucks to be 8 levels lower and not even able to get out of spawn.

    And BTW in my opinion this was meant intentionally to force players reach VIP in w/c u wont lose even a single amount of honor when u get killed by some dryad collectors. VIP 9 = lots of Balens used = huge ammount of money for them

This would allow for people to still stack drayds to get loads of honor and take on the big boys but not ruin a BG to one death (hate going 33-1 and ending up with -20 honor)
    Thats the best thing ive ever read in forums about dryads XD

    The problem is "honor" and the fact that nearly all players "need" to get to Lord Divine rank instantly because of the "perceived" merits of the medal for that rank.

    I have had discussions with lv59 players who are planning on staying at that level, gaining Lord Divine then never entering the BG again. They are now complaining because they are coming up against Lv64 players and are losing honor. Why would you want to deprive yourself of one of the best parts of the game just to gain a medal.

    FFS, if your gaining honor, someone has to be losing honor. The fact remains that if your lv59 and trying to get lord Divine, it's gona be VERY hard to achieve without alts/guildies/friends help. Once you start hitting elite crusader and above, those very same dryad bomb exploits, or farming low level tactics, are going to come back and haunt you big style.
    I have been playing 8 month and am only at high commander level, but I am quite happy in the 70+ BG. It's very rare I walk away with a - honor figure against my name, but it's also very rare I walk away with anything above +300.

    The dryad bombers are forcing higher levels to actually attack lower levels more and more. If you lose 160 honor, then you need to attack and kill 3 times to regain that honor, unless your lucky enough to hit someone with a higher rank. Then they have the same problem of regaining that honor loss.


    I love it when someone camps at a lower level, gets lord divine then moves up the BG brackets.
    They wonder why they can't keep that lord divine ranking as they have "earned" it. Ehhh maybe because your BR is total ****, and everyone else who isn't Lord Divine takes huge chunks of honor out of you. Then even when your fully dryad, your only gaining 74 honor for a win, while losing 200+ every loss.
    That's what eventually happens to those players, and I really do love seeing it happen!

    Dryad is also used by many as a way to simply get one to five kills in the entire 25 min time limit of bg. When you are on the low end of the spectrum in a bg Dryad really is a blessing.
    Yet it shouldn't be that way. Dryad isn't there to get kills for you and tons of honor. It is there for one purpose only and that is to protect yourself from bullies constantly attacking you over and over again and not letting you do anything. It isn't for exploiting such things and attacking others who don't even touch you. Point of BG is not for honor. The point is to get higher points than the other team. Honor is just a bonus to get really. Also stop trying to make excuses to make it seem that dryad bombing is a good thing and that it is needed. Lowbies can still get there honor by fighting people who are around there BR. You don't have to rush up ranks either. I don't rush up my ranks and I don't dryad bomb people and never have. Nor have I ever spawned camp people either as I feel that stupid as well. Learn to play battlegrounds and stop abusing **** whether it be your own power or some sort of buff.

    I summarized your and others text into this. Srsly removimg dryads?? Half of your farms would leave bg .. Dryad to them is their way of getting honour, let them punish you a little for ******* slaughter them in and out^^
    I also lose honour due to this, bit this is a bad idea. Dryad is fine as it is.
    Please point out where in the hell in my post did I say remove dryad? Please also tell me where in the hell did I say that dryad is a bad thing? I even said dryad is needed to help lowbies out to compete from the bullies bullying them. I merely suggested that it should be adjusted some sorta of way or allow some sort of "punishment" to happen when someone abuses dryad bc that is considered an exploitation. Even though it is legal doesn't make it right. Lastly, please don't assume **** about me. I don't go chase and bully lowbies around all day. In fact the times I get dyrad bomb is merely when im just on my way going to get a cart and a person with dryad sees a knight crusader and decides to attack. So please stop posting if you're going assume dumb things. Thank you.

    It doesn't even the playing field though.

    You will always get someone who takes off their clothes/removes troops and gets a guildie/friend to kill them 6 or 7 times to build up dryads. Losing only 10 honor for each loss, which equals a 70 honor loss.

    Then they go out and "hunt" a higher ranked player to gain 400 honor, who hasn't attacked. How is that fair?

    Now if you only activate the dryads when being attacked, then this type of "hunting" will become obsolete. However the lower levels will still be protected as the dryads will kick in if someone attacks them looking for an easy kill.
