I don't normally support petitions, nor would I ever think of posting one. However, in my final hour, this is my last bit of support that I can offer our hunter community. I've not always been some grouch on these boards. I did try to offer suggestions, if you check my post history. However, as time grew on, I've held less and less hope for any sort of response from the developers. Its lead me to have more and more pent up frustrations. I'm not apologizing for 'trolling'.
Instead of a well thought idea, we're being given one of the first replies to the 'Official Class Update and Feedback' thread. The developers, without a doubt, didn't even care about looking further than that first page.
This change is going to be implemented with Riders of Rohan.
Source: - "improving Hunter’s Desperate Flight to include your entire Fellowship."
We, as a community, must unanimously rebuttal this 'change'/'fix'/'improvement', for the following reasons:
-Easy to abuse. (intentionally or unintentionally) - Predicted comments: 'Oh we don't want a hunter that is going to mistakenly hit a skill in our instance/raid.'
-Serves no purpose other than to chicken-wuss out on a fight. You save some repair costs, and it costs you traveling rations instead. Go you.
-Not a valuable 'survival' skill, in PvE or PvMP. In PvMP it is disallowed, as is. It is an escape skill that is used to reset aggro currently, nothing more, nothing less. If we are to have a survival skill, it should improve our chances of living - not running away. We are hunters, we are not prey.
-Hunters will (intentionally or unintentionally) use this skill, making people playing our class look more idiotic to the rest of the LOTRO community.
If we are to stand together on any particular issue, let it be this one. We must do this early to change their mind.
Please /signed, /support, or however you wish to respond below, by adding a reply. If there is a reason I've forgotten to include please inform me.
