Nerfing Grabs

Postby Isy232 » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:41 pm #500445

You can violently grab someone, forcing them to attempt to resist while wielding a fire axe and stabbing them.

I understand that robustness is a skill, but I do not have 4 arms and I am pretty damn sure you dont either.
I did big goof and thank Dinkle for his mercy in only giving me a 1 day ban for this incident.

Its not really a bug in the game and more bad design. If you grab someone by their neck it is difficult to resist out of and doesn't require you to have an open hand once you successfully do it, meaning you can have a fire axe in one hand, grab them by the neck with the other hand, and then dual wield the axe and kill them with ease
The weak should fear the strong

Yeah, if you need to have an open hand in order to grab them then presumably you shouldn't be able to continue grabbing them while holding a 2h, cause then you're not using your hand on them. It should say "you need a free hand to wield that!" the same as it does if you're holding a box or whatever in your offhand

GitHub ish it for inconsistency

Ive always wondered why we can pull shit while holding two things. Are we pulling those lockers with our butt cheeks or something?

I don't mind being able to grab someone while holding something, but it's a little silly to be able to attack someone with something you're holding while you're choking them and keep the chokehold on. The choke is already brutal enough tbh.
I code for the code project and moderate the code sections of the forums.

Feedback is dumb and it doesn't matter

The issue is here is generally with sleeping carp, you get insta-grabbed and can't run whilst someone dual wield fire axes you to death, I mean carp is robust enough without needing this

I am intending to bring the grab object back at some point, I just don't know when.
