Reputation and PvP

Ryan Dancey
During Adventure Time with Bonny last Friday I accidentally made two attacks on a character I was trying to heal. No biggie - I figured I'd just leave my computer logged in overnight a few days to burn down the rep hit.

After three days of waiting I still can't access the Settlements without the Thornguard chasing me down. So I asked the designers what the expected time delay was on the rep recovery.

Turns out that due to a series of issues and spreadsheet values, the answer is "20 weeks".

So just FYI: Don't do any PvP with any character you care about taking back to town. smile

(This will of course all be adjusted soon but there's no ETA)

If you remember the conversation, this is what I was talking about when I asked you if you were comfortable with the current Reputation mechanics after Cheatle was out for two weeks after testing PvP with Decius smile

I think that was me, I'm surprised that I'd ever have that big an effect on someone's reputation ;-) i guess this is what people meant when they called me dodgy.

I tried to link to this thread in the PvP area and got an error, the loop in the hyperlink might be an issue.
shhh…

I guess dev team banned bad-bad PvP-griefer Ryan from settlement. I see nothing wrong… smile

LOL! 20 weeks is a long time. I am assuming that everyone will be creating new characters for our murder spree the last week of Alpha!

Also, it should be noted that reputation only regenerates during active gameplay, so leaving your character logged in won't help smile

Very interesting. Are you willing to share what constitutes "active gameplay"? Or is that a trade secret?

I believe the intention was for any non-AFK time to count, including typing, looking around, or any sort of input. However, currently only character movement is checked, so you must be moving at least every couple minutes.

Thanks. Don't expect I'll need it, but it's good to know.

I recommend occasionally identifying common exploits (like unattended running in circles) and silently changing the system to decrease Reputation instead of increasing it when such behavior is identified smile

Possibly adding in a reporting mechanic in order to flag someone for participating in these activities.
