    battle looting is pretty annoying because i feel like that means the people in the back not putting in work get the loot

    the last 2 days all the fights with defiance all i got was one fp mage bag, feels bad man

    I mean we tend to do robe stuff too, but its only when there is no active siege and its a 90% chance we're going to be outnumbered/die anyways so whats the point?

    If we're defending a holding or attacking I don't give a shit if its a 99% chance I am gonna die, I am going to gear up.

    The first time you guys pushed I had just recalled in from making battle spikes and pulled a bag out of the bank AS you were pushing into the city lol I had to hide just to click 10 pieces of armor and bind everything to my bar lol. I came into the fight saw what looked like our side winning pushed in hard, found MOV completely fucking naked in the middle of the fight got him to 1 hit and then turned around to see like 15 Drow .5 me instantly in a Q5 bag lol I was like wait WHERE DID THEY ALL COME FROM? lol

    I think people were slow to gear up before the fight and someone eventually got frustrated and said "mov is completely naked with bone shoulders on we're good lets go".

    I though he was joking

    See this is why I tell you to loot!!! Need more gear!!
    Nope not a joke. Found him in the middle of the fight and was like oh okay, got him to 1 hit and caught a ray in the back and before I could even turn/pull out a shield 15 drow descended on me and .5'd me. Fight was difficult from the start, 90% of the people/clans there were not even allied so seeing who was who and how many actual allies you had around you was extremely difficult. I thought I was surrounded by allies (no one was focusing me) only to realize I was indeed not! lol

    Yeah, we did but that was honestly our downfall in both fights, you had enough numbers to surround us and flank us and it destroyed our back lines. I'm RARELY ever pushed in hard or deep in most fights as I tend to play more of a floater roll but I thought we were winning and hard pushing. The last fight where we pushed into the holding and took down the stones was the only fight we were actually all allied up and in the same comms, made quite a difference

    The rules of looting:

    They say no combat looting allowed. That means don't get caught.

    They say no bag looting. But of course you take the bag, you take everything.

    Rules are for the unwashed masses.

    Battle looting can be necessary sometimes when you need to pull back in a city raid. The key is communicating with your team to let them know you are going to grab the loot and not just do it unannounced. If its a bad time your teammates will tell you, if theres a gap they'll cover you grabbing the bag.

    If you don't grab the bag then the person who died gets to regear quickly and re-enter the fight.

    Bad battle looting is the guy who stops fighting the enemy the second one enemy is ganked to loot while his team still has no real advantage in the fight. Its the classic downfall of zerg siege forces... that and not having confidence in their teammates so no one commits fully to the fight.

    It's simple. If your dot is not moving at all when the fight is not over, you should get kicked out of the clan. If the ppl around you don't trust you and you don't usually talk, you mostlikely took the bag so we gank you to prove it.
    You can't be next to a grave when you're naked.

    What we also need is a looting animation.

    If your friends and allies are offering loot after a fight and even dropping complete, valuable gear bags in the clan bank for everybody, you know that you are with quality people.

    Personally, I usually avoided combat looting just to avoid the drama that came with it.

    See, this way of see things is flawed though. If you're naked, if you grab a bag then you can help fight. You don't know why they are naked! Also, just because someone is looting doesn't mean they don't have a reason to. They could be low on regs etc and didn't say anything to not clutter coms. The only problem with "combat looting" is when people over do it and take 4-5 bags instead of just one or they sit at a grave for longer than 2 sec because then they are just wasting to much time. Sometimes you need to loot midfight to stop their nakeds from coming back and putting their bags back on.

    Also, if loot matter so much to you you're willing to gank your allies you have your own problems as well lol. I also love seeing people kill their own allies mid fight as well because they looted something. If anything the person attacking cause more issues within the fight and adding more drama than the looter.

    @Myater

    Most of my points are not flawed when ppl are on coms with the ability to talk. Those who can't talk at all can't defend themselves. Some ppl admit it and you got a few caught looting their own in secret and those guys don't talk at all if the intent wasn't to give it all back.

    Just because I said your viewpoint was flawed doesn't mean you're not right about some of it!

    I wouldn't last long in that kind of clan.

    Not that I spend a lot of time naked looting, but I might want to sometime.

    If someone wanted to gank me to prove whether I had a bag on me...

    That would be an interesting day in Darkfall.
