Correct, actually it’s just one person whining about ‘standing in the water’ which I didn’t even do.
The funny part is like you said it is actually a useless hinderance to glitch into the water, especially at where I was accused of doing so: the river. I’m sure all the leaderboard toppers are aware that it’s much more efficient to constantly change leys running past the nearest spots. Why would you even want to glitch in the river? It has such a small width and would basically give no benefit to glitch into unlike at eastern docks where we have an open sea.angelneto wrote:players are "skippinh"(in reality glitching) there animation of fishing to stop shorter so they can goto next spot
It is being performed with skills and hotbars provided by OTM. If this is considered a glitch or is bannable, let’s look at some equivalents performed on a daily basis:
- Moving on the cast of a buff skill skips the animation
- Moving on the cast of certain debuffs (ex. mage lures) skips the animation
- You can engage another fish in range whilst still playing the ‘picking up’ animation, skipping it
- Another skill can already be in the process of casting whilst a different cast animation is still playing (basically skipped)
These are all points with the exact same concept: skipping or shortening an animation. The last point mentioned above has become a basic of ch combat mechanics... If these really are bannable the community would be wiped out by now.
OTM is known for still banning players due to errors in programming and exploiting, for example the ability to run through walls and tamper with bosses.
Just because “the natural game environment” allows for action X to take place doesn’t legitimize action X as valid or “legitimate.”
Personally I don’t see he big problem, OTM did a rush job throwing this competition together, from not properly analyzing interest and messing up with how many prizes to award or the price of Ling to properly defining rules. For future competitions maybe OTM can be more explicit, but in the case of a silly fishing one, especially as rushed as this, I think we should all take a step back and just enjoy wasting time
