Faaris.8013 Posted May 12, 2019 Share Posted May 12, 2019 A refund of Initiative when my shots are "obstructed" by nothing but thin air.For those who are not familiar with the concept of Thief: You have no weapon skill cooldown, but a shared pool of points that are used by those skills: InitiativeWhen I use Unload, it costs me 6 Initiative out of the total 15 I have. It happens quite regularly that I stand right in front of an enemy, use Unload and all my shots are "obstructed". There is nothing that could possibly stand in the way of my bullets. We all know this issue, with different classes. If that happens, I'm basically toast, because with the speed and lag, I can easily have a second Unload in the queue before I can move to a different spot. When I hit Haste before I shoot, I can basically fire three Unloads within less than a second (if I hit and get a refund to fire a third time).Now, I understand that this issue cannot be fixed easily, that's why it exists for years. It should be easy though to check what happened to the projectiles and trigger an action if the reply is "obstructed". If it is, refund thhe Initiative, or reset the cd. What about the cases where projectiles are really obstructed? Well, maybe add an area flag to the calculation and declare the main area of camps as "no obstruction anywhere".This issue is a PITA and discourages me from even engaging in camps.
