Thief Ambusher gets ambushed?


1|2

AuthorThief Ambusher gets ambushed?
How does it work where if a Thief sets an ambush, he/she ambushes 2 players.

Have a look at this.

Poor -NEO- ambushes 2 players of his/her level.

Surely this can't be deliberate by -NEO- to ambush 2 players.

So how does this work?

Is it possible for a player to hire him/her self as an escort, and coordinate movement if another player wants to travel with safety against Thieves?

Cheers
A double ambush happens a small % of the time when 2 people walk past the same point within a set time of each other when the ambush triggers.

Since there is no guarantee that a double ambush will happen when you walk along with someone, it'll be pretty hard to do an escort.
well, when your're a thief, you can't choose who you ambush, so it was just bad luck

Actually that may not be so in this case. I saw this from an alleged complaint of combat assists from the same computer. From the 2 "players" coordinating their movements they had 3 combats in a row where they were joint ambushed.

05-26-09 18:23: • cabrunet[8] vs CGSMCMLXXV[8], Anita2008[8]

I present these 3 combats which occurred in sequence.

Noted, but as you can see above these 2 players were able to coordinate their movements.

of course, they just travel at the exact same time to the eact same place. not a bad idea acctually

Hmmm.. these 2 paragraphs sure seems to contradict one another. the same 2 "players" been ambused within a 40 minutes span is neither a small % or random.

Don't ask me what (I'm just a noob), but something sure don't look right here..

Easy : Anita2008 and CGSMCMLXXV are communicating together and travelling together, Im expecting the worse in that from Thief Hunters.

Those who specialize in making the life of Thief difficult.

Someone else already made a complaint. I am not judging the innocence or guilt. I am just shocked at how the tables can be turned on an Ambusher. I am surprised this can be done.

If travellers migrated in a convoy, Ambushers would be in some real trouble.

dont give any lvl 6 players ideas i aready have trouble theiving lvl 6 real players even with decent arts
Well it's just a trick, to defedn yourself agianst thieves.
Thieves themselves should keep track of these thief-hunters. Keep them on your "buddy" list to see if they are online, and set the ambush whenever they are in battle or at another location. When you see them in thief-hunting mode (cue: full arts and are at GC-YL route), just set up at another location :p

Considering that I only play during certain hours, it's pretty easy keeping track of them.
They are hunting thieves...nothing new. When you aim to rob someone, be prepared for anything, heh.
I say bring it on. Caravans are always harder than a single full art player and in many cases harder than 2 semi-art players.

This is much better than afk victims or ones with no troops.

I disagree :P
Afk victims / single troops players are much better.

I would much prefer caravans than full arts players. Caravans are more predictable to play with and most of the times easier. :)
Well, let me give you a hint:

Look at my char web page. You will see Anita2008 is my gf and we live together. We just made a pact to travel together. There is nothing illegal in that and for sure it works fine for us. Everyone can do the same as us. Is it enough explanatory?

Another hint:

Look at my combat log again. You will see that I travel full arts and there are few times when I lose an ambush. This should tell you something as well.

So, watch out thieves of combat level 8! I will not leave my Queen to be ambushed by you and for sure you will need to pass through me to reach her. Anything else?
well I ambushed your Queen 2 times and won :P golden old times when anita was level 7 :D
@16:

LOL! Shame on you, clanmate! :P We will reach your combat level, don't worry! Your time will come, that's a promise! :D
I'm looking forward george :) well in that time I'll be TG 4 and maybe anita or you will catch us :) or u'll catch us, who knows
Acolyte, I checked my whole combat log from lvl7 and I didn't find you ambushed me. Maybe you ambushed another queen :))
Acolyte, do you know anything I don't know? Like me having two Queens? :)

Seriously now, guys. Even with 3 seconds difference in between me and Anita2008, we entered together. The only times when we traveled together and we haven't entered together were the times when one of us entered with somebody else, but never alone. So, those small chances of getting with someone in a an ambush if you travel with that someone are actually 99% (1% to enter with somebody else). I don't count 100% as "small chances".
