This is extremely dumb and needs to change

    This game needs to change how players can ambush you while in the middle of a fight then intentionally get your health low without killing you so monsters can finish you off, causing you to suffer the death penalty. One of the stupidest things I've ever seen on a video game.

    So what smart thing you suggest, removing PVP or removing mobs.

    No. I need that for my Elkarr, Viper and Hoom market. Joke aside, i don't see why they would, if you have enough gear to grind at the said place , this shouldn't happen to you often, knowing that you have various pots to help.

    Sorry, bud, that's just part of the game. Sometimes, it's not about who has the highest ap, but who plays the attrition game better.

    What ever does the most damage to you should count as the kill. In other words, if a player ambushes you and takes all your life and then a monster hits you. Then it counts as a player kill not a monster kill. Simple fix.

    I've had that happen a few times. I basically V, dodge out or use a skill to get me clear of the mobs, then karma bomb the attacker so bad they regret doing it in the first place.

    No need for such a long time but yeah, basically, considering that any death is coming from pvp if you have been hit by a player in the last [insert duration] seconds before the death is an adequate answer.

    Part of the PvPvE rework BDO needs, I guess.

    that's not fully true. You can't V out of it while on the ground, but while you're being thrown to the ground, you can still V.

    In the end, if you're grinding spots where you can easily get fed to mobs, keep your eyes on the minimap and if a white dot appears, watch out for them. Then this should basically never happen.

    I suppose you could question is it worth having a penalty for death anyway? All it does is encourage people to grind in easy places which is part of the problem.

    I've only died about 3 times in the last 2 years, and only in Abyssal Level (twice losing a dark Red Fang Crystal, grrr). So maybe rwe-work the death penalty so that people are more willing to be adventurous. More of a time penalty than a progress penalty.

    It's always said that we learn by our mistakes, but in BDO we unlearn instead.

    Why should you be penalized for dieing to mobs, when being hit by red players at the same time in the first place? This should only happen in PvE only mode, where it should not be hard to differentiate what is going on.

    Or give the griefer -1000000 karma and force them to the live in the desert. In addition, lose one random crystal for initiating the attack. I have no sympathy for griefers, they ruin the game for new and veteran players.

    They will still have to tear, but to break crystals is beyond the scope of it. It shouldn't hap[pen that way.

    Agree. Simple fix. They dont really care about griefing in this game. A trashcan guild can have a perma dec on you for 2+ years and its all part of the game.
