    Forest Defense Force & Kiln clean up

    Post by Gorgrim on Thu Mar 01, 2012 6:16 pm

    So I've seen a few Youtube vids of Darkwraiths/BP players invading the forest to fight greifers farming along side with forest cov guys. And I was wondering if there is a way to organise invasions, so that the chances of being ganked are evened out by having another bp help you.
    I'm thinking that if players decided a day to non stop invade @ the kiln, we could grief the greifers. If two bp show up in a single hosts world, then just let the 1v1 play out obviously, and hopefuly we could have multiple people showing up to help bp getting ganked.
    A rough day of pvp at the kiln brought this to mind. It seemed like every second inv was a ganking by multiple groups. Havn't totally thought this through yet. What do you guys think? is it feasible? and would anyone be interested?

    Well as far as invading the forest goes - I try to befriend as many fellow hunters, GLs, DWs as possible - so when I am invading the forest I will ask them to do the same. Depending on how many gank fests going on in the various worlds this may or may not help. Specifically, in regards to the farmers in the forest - us hunters (and other red spirits) try our hardest not to let them dig in (quickly killing invaders one by one). When this happens to me I just try to play defense as much as possible to increase the chances of 2v2, 3v2, 2v1v1, etc.

    Invading can be tough at times - but you just have to keep at it. Some farmers have turned ganking into an art form:x .

    Keep the faith bro!

    Yeah it doesn't help when other invaders are so clueless sometimes- I've never been a hunter before (always DW) and joined the Forest cov yesterday with my sl 45 ninja. 1st spawn, ran out of Alvinas house to 3 v 1 insta death and the usual taunts. I've got a sl 45 ninja so can't take much of a hit. Next invasion a 2 v 1. Another D Spirit invades as I'm killing the phantom. I'm then into the host, and get him down to 300-400 hp but I'm almost gone. Where is the other guy and wtf is he doing? Absolutely nothing! I die, get taunted, yada yada. One that coulda been won just thrown away...

    Yep, it obviously helps if you have allies invade and join you. I often will sneak ahead to identify where the farmers are, and if they're just standing there or are running routes through the area, I'll evade or play for time until I get a message about someone else invading. It's slower, but the whole point of them farming is to kill as many phantoms as quickly as possible, so denying them even that for a while is a sort of victory. Once the odds are a bit more even, you can go in...or continue to hang back and make them even more edgy and impatient. They like to make you face them on their terms, usually in an open area by the stairs or Alvina where they can flail away with the ultragreatswords and don't have to worry about wasting spells that just hit trees. So bait them into chasing you into the forest. I've had fights where even though I died, just getting them out of position for a while was enough for other summons to come in safely (such as DWs from the stairs where usually they get ganked) to mop up. It's a team effort on both sides.
