    Punch Kills

    Hello mobsters - Starting today, if you are killed by a punch, you lose 0 XP on death. There are two exceptions to this:
    - if your attacker is in your fight range (someone who would normally appear on your fight list), you WILL lose XP on punch death
    - if you have opened a window on your attacker (no matter what level they are), you WILL lose XP on punch death

    You will still take damage from and be killed by punches, no matter who is punching you. All other deaths (hitlist, attack kills, boss kills, rigs, etc) are unchanged. You will lose XP on these deaths no matter what.

    Why this change?
    Players continue to email us daily about being killed constantly by "punch wheels". The abuse of these is driving low and mid level players from the game. A few weeks ago we attempted simply limiting punch actions, which many high level players disagreed with. This change is a compromise that allows high levels to continue to use bully tactics to punch kill low levels with no restrictions, but to reduce the penalty on low level accounts.

    lol.. I wouldn't put any protection for those who end up on peoples punch list.... They're there for a reason..

    + I would like to see it removed since I'm a camper, and I get pked ~3 times a day when I am sleeping.. Saves me stamina from killing myself for an hour or two.

    If people whine, you can always show them the terms...


    Takes ~24 hours to be removed from a punch list, depends on what this particular user did.

    In all theory high levels should not be credited with a kill then. (if pk a lower that hasn't given them a window)

    so.. let me get this straight..
    you are still getting killed.. its a killing game.. you dont loose any xp.. i bet you dont want to have a death register too

    seriously.. Farmville might be better for you.. Bob tried to do a compromise. i think it is wrong. but at least.. we get our kills..
    for the campers that punch. they still die with lost of xp..
    for the one that dont. they wont loose anything..

    my only problem is if i go and manually pk a level 80k. he wont loose any XP..
    so ... i think he should add a limit when this stops. .like 10k or something

    ok Bob, I generally don't use a "punch wheel" so technically it wont make a difference to my game play. But seeing as you are kerbing game play that has been with the game since the beginning. Why don't you make other changes too. Like removing the kills from adding people to the hitlist. So they dont count twice. That way the little whingers at level 77 can't boast high kills, and only people that kill using an attack, taking someone off the hitlist or a punch kill counts. After all it's not like we can spend time in Jail anymore, as you already removed that. So keep taking the minorities thoughts. Punch killing has always been part of the game. If you are that concerned about it, remove punching from the game... Then lose the remainder of the daily players

    can we remove the kills people have gotten from farming their mini too



    Also; if we pk someone alot higher level than ourselves they will still lose xp right?

    That is an excellent question Bob.. i would like the answer on that..

    if a level 10k pk a level 150k.. does the level 150k looses xp.. as they are not on the same fightlist..
