How can i counter tp pk-ers ?

How can i counter tp pk-ers ?

I gave up making baal runs on public servers.At least is a start.
On week ago i was killed in a baal run by a blizzard sorc.She(but probably a asshole he) tp and pk-ed me in act 1.I was in a 7 player game on nigtmare.The interesting thing is that i wasnt making baal , just mf-ing through act 1(dark wood and stony field).
When you are poor , you are poor and that is it.Didnt even join the party and still i got a blizzard on my head while in tristam.Could it be a lucky guess by sorc or part of the hack ?

How can i counter those beside not joining public games ?
Some tips will be welcome.Thank you.

An anti TPPK guide is missing on these forums. I am currently working on it. Fact is that if your are poor, use ghetto equipment the TPPKs watch out your equipment with 3rd party programs and then they press a button, the script kills you. You can build a char who tanks them, but you need decent items for it.

Never play a game on Bnet with people you dont know . The easiest way to do this is buy 2 versions of the game and make 2 player games . Not as fast leveling but it can be done and you wont be killed ...

Playing SOLO defeats the concept behind playing MULTIPLAYER D2. Friends > equipment.

getting shot by a tppk also defeats the concept behind multiplayer DII.

Or make a thread here or in the player matchup forum. I did, and I have many very good friends now, that I play with all the time. There are other players out there, who are angry with all the tppk'ers, and would be happy to join you in some friendly runs. Even if you don't wan't to join a public channel like xbananax or gauss.

The trick is to find someone, who shares your style/speed of play and play at a similar time. This also allows for free exchange of found items - when you play with friends there is no loot-grabbing.

A word of warning though - if you make some nice friends here, you will likely spend more and more time online - chatting / playing and having loads of fun. But it will be very difficult to leave.

I hope this helps, and I hope you find some nice companions on your endavours.

Re: How can i counter tp pk-ers ?

I`ve already joined op gauss.
Some nice people to play there , but its kind of empty.Only in the evening i can find someone to baal with.
Thanks for answers.I will not join public games anymore. :thumbsup:
 
Re: How can i counter tp pk-ers ?

hi quicksand :D

op gauss sure is the place to be :p

best way to avoid tppk is know the chars that frequently tppk. namely sorc. but also wind druids, and assas.

always be sure to check who enters your game. if you feel suspicious, head to town and chill for a while. if youre soloing or not part of a party, try and avoid killing monsters near a waypoint. that way its harder to track where you are/have been.

i dont mind being pk'd, i have a choice whether to run the risk or not. but tppk leaves you no choice. before you even know whats going on, youre dead.

i'll be on tonight and in op gauss if you need help

Run for the HIILLLLLLLLLSSSS!!!




Or just save and exit, whatever works for you

Another one i personally like is that if someone i dont know starts shooting near/at me, im straight outta there, just stay alert.

Quit trolling.

This is a topic about TPPK, don't claim that legit PK is the same thing and go on to make overt threats. He wasn't talking to you unless you are a TPPKer, and if you are, kindly get the hell out of my forum.

I'd say hit esc key and arrow down two times and press enter really fast. That's how you escape a TPPK

That's how you counter PKs.

TPPK, you're dead before you know you've been hostiled, and thus that won't work unless you're gonna do it every time someone suspicious joins your game. Not on the whole the worst idea, but Save & Exit upon hostile won't do anything but make sure nobody loots you.

True enough Barry :)

The point is valid, though I may have worded it a bit strangely. This is a forum for a small open minded community. The one thing we don't look particularly kindly on is people trolling, if you have a valid opinion and want to voice it you are welcome, that guy clearly didn't.

I am just pulling your leg my friend. You've been here more than long enough to call it "your forum" and "your home..."

I just recently got a TPPK done to me in which there was no defense. The kill happened so quick that the shock didn't even kick in yet.

I haven't played in a public game in a very, very long time.
