The first part of this thread is just for my own curiosity, but does anyone know if there are quirky exp mechanics in Armory 2? There's this bishop in Scania who is 220+ and recently climbed 10 ranks, which I thought was impossible even with the no leech 41+ level parties. It seems like they've been staying in the Armory 2 map overnight, so I was wondering if there was some exploit or if the bishop just discovered a better method to train. If anyone has any information about this it would be great if they could share!
Now for the real discussion!
With InmateSearch hitting 250 (congrats!) and popularizing these 41+ levels no leech parties, I thought it would be interesting to discuss this shift in training methods and what you all thought about it. This isn't the thread to argue about whether or not this method is an "exploit" or a clever use of game mechanics. What I want to know is whether or not this new method of training has affected you, what you think about the mechanic, and whether or not Nexon should do anything about it.
In the Bera HoH scene, these no leech parties are so popular it's getting difficult to find a map with people who just want to leech or to party up and train. All the Bishops/Kannas are just getting paid to provide services and people are even paying people to mapsit (afk and gain no exp) for them. At least half of the channels have high levels grinding away, soloing the entire map, and I bet it's the same in the other worlds.
As a filthy casual who leeches from people to get levels, it's made it very difficult for me to find any experience. How has it affected you?
