Chasing triggers..

Really think this should be banned. Really screws with pk. I have a decent link but can't get out of the room I flee into unless I DL away.

Wait, there's actually a trigger or script to chase people?

That's hilariously sad.

As far as I can guess, the script would be set to follow a target out of the room. It's really frustrating if you're trying to flee in choked areas without double-lines, or wide open zones without double-lines, since it forces you to do the stupid thing and overspam a random direction hoping you get the right flee.

I doubt if there's a way to effectively ban it, but at least it's just a few players using them.

Obviously I don’t know for sure, but there looks like one flee for sure where Arkansas chases in the other direction as flee...

Think, in those chokes areas there are times/people where you 100% have to DL to get away...just have to do the opposite, SE room - dL south. The chase scripts are really obvious in the open zones where you typically don’t ever have to DL and then you do against them.

I think it could be enforceable..we would just have to complain about people abusing it (it's pretty obvious when you're fighting against it who is doing it) to an imm, the imm would just output a line globally, and see if the other person reacts to it immediately. If they do, boom! Zap, ban, and mock until this behavior is removed from existence.

I do feel for people with bad links, but please try to keep this discussion separate from that. This type of thing is even worse if you have a bad link. There are so many issues that make it hard to pk with a bad link, and there's not much we can do rule-wise or player-wise to help mitigate these issues.

Whereas there is something simple we can do to stop this behavior - imms just need to ban it (it may already fall under the botting rules anyway when you think about it), then enforce it after players point out someone abusing it a couple of times. Once a couple people are zapped everyone will stop doing it.
