^^^I 100% agree with this, it's different if the clan can't kill the boss and only steals lock to screw with you but when you're outlocking the comp to hold until your clan can finish gathering it isn't griefing at all... I'd rather outlock the other clan and wait 45 mins than let them have and wait days


Either you can or can't kill the boss at that time. If you cannot kill it at that time, then you are simply holding the boss to prevent the other group from killing it. Regardless if you can muster enough toons 45 minutes or 14 days later, it's the same.

If one group cannot kill the boss until they can gather enough but can lock it to prevent another group from killing it that has the numbers to kill it, then there isn't really any difference than not being able to kill it but locking it so the other group can't kill it. This waiting for enough to come on can go on ad nauseum...how long is acceptable to wait? 5 minutes? 2 hours? 4 weeks?

I agree 1000% this was a lot more fun. Hope they revert back to this

Yeah, except the loot when to the group with the INDIVIDUAL with the most damage, meaning you could get the loot solo against a full group.

With how group mechanics work now (highest damage group gets kill) I don't think that is how looting would work anymore, it should be based on group dps.
