Ok you know what, your entire proposed idea is great but you are flat out WRONG if the proposed idea about letting 14 years worth of characters have this buff over new players who you claim your helping. Your doing the opposite. That very rare occurrence isn't as rare as you think. One of the only ways to beat some people is getting their weapon off through whatever means so they lose parry. I'm sorry but your reply makes me think you have never PKd and I am astonished that a non pker is trying to change anything about PK. Stick to your sage rooms and don't ruin it for those who do enjoy it.
Or my reply acknowledges that PK as a whole is completely and totally broken and given the 0-1 people who currently log on a night with any remote
interest in PK, I think most people acknowledge that as well. The current system has withered and died over several years, and you were the last person to actually and truly be excited about it.
This change sets the baseline up to be able to overhaul MANY more systems in the game that will, without a doubt, 100% change PK in the future as well. You can't do things like make stats matter (which has been an ongoing project since about the inception of the forums), address major balance issues (pick a place to begin: Sharp, Mages, the list of new and existing spell and skill proposals), and make abilities far more interesting overall (there's a number of proposals floating around about actually directly attacking avoidance rates, which would address things like parry). You're actually correct as well, it isn't a rare situation. With 0 PK happening, it's merely a theoretical situation at this point that wasn't common when it was possible to occur.
Yeah? Well, you know, that's just like, your OPINION, man.
