Forgive me if I'm not correctly interpreting the conflict but Badabing did not Ks, rush, or in anyway prevent anyone from killing Ythair.
It is true this statement... however unless you were intent on sitting on the spawn for four or five hours you had no shot of getting near it... I actually found it very uncomfortable trying to camp it at the time as the four (ish) people that would be there were either afk or down right rude... I'd come up thinking of joining the campfire and say hey wassup... and get nothing... or "hi" then........nothing. Very awkward. Felt very unwelcome... maybe im just a dbag and i was infact unwelcome...
It was very very smart though camping it as Bada did though, because now look... 8 million for Visc's set... or whatever it was... madness... and the gear is freakin awesome.
Actually we had tons of people sit with us, and ended up grouping them too. It was a regular 12 hour spawn with little variation, so if you were there, we did group the people there. THe fact is that not all radiant armor was held by BadaBing. That is how Father, Nueee, and one more person(name escapes me) got their Radiant BPs. We grouped with them because they were there.
Camping sucked, but sometimes is was also fun. Sometimes we would lose track of the spawn time so we would have to find it out again. And sometimes we would camp because we saw one person standing there, so we decided to camp with them. I didn't know Nueee before summer. camping was actually how i got to know him, and other people. They stopped by and would either just talk or leave, or stay for the whole camp and then we would group them.
The only times that we had trouble with Uskoci was toward the end of the event. We would be camping there, and then they would come up with more than a full group trying to scare us away from camping. There were even times when they rushed the boss and took him, while we were sitting there with a mixed group that had uskoci members in it.
Sometimes we were AFK, and I was probably more guilty of this than anyone. When you are camping for a couple hours you can't be expected to put your life on hold. I had many other RL things to do, and could not be 100% online the entire time. The funny thing is that camping is part of the game, and everyone has done it so I'm not sure why it's making you uncomfortable. Do people AFK camping Deadroot make you uncomfortable? How about AFK camping pyrus? There is one Uskoci member that AFK camps Pyrus every weekday while he is at work. Does this make you uncomfortable too? The fact is that you were not unwelcome, because if you were there we would have mixed the group. I think that the feelings of unwelcomeness were just in your head. We like you Sav, and would have been happy to have you, if you would have stuck around.
The gear is freakin awesome, and can be sold for a ton of money. Just ask Father, who was the first person to sell a Radiant BP to Teaweasel for 1.5 million gold worth of plat items. The thing is that for the most part, you have to work to get these items. Sure there was the regular crowd of people there camping most times, and there were the occasional people that would stop by. But for the most part, I did not see anyone but BadaBing (and Nueee) put in the effort to actually camp the boss. We had the spawn times down. We sat there for hours. And we wondered why we were the only ones that were dedicated enough to actually put in the effort to get this armor.
The fact is that, as with anythign in life, if you want something you need to work to get it. These drops did not fall from the sky into our laps. It took hard work and dedication to get them. It took setting alarms to get up for 3am spawns. It took pulling over the car while driving just so we could fight ythair. It took sneaking off to the bathroom during work so no one would see us playing with a dragon. Many times I was so tired during the day from wakign up for an overnight spawn. But it was worth it knowing that I was one step closer to my goal. I did not see Uskoci do this ever.
