Put the Pest Control Splatter idea to practice. Turns out it works!
By - RS_Revenants
PC is not a safe death for GIM? That’s so evil, I love it.
Pretty much all the safe deaths are removed for GIM, including CoX and Fight Caves.
Is NMZ safe for Hardcore GIM?
Wuuuuuuut lmao can't wait to see that happen to someone unknowingly
This can't be real, how do you even survive NMZ? It's endless
You can exit by drinking the potion near where you spawn in, or by logging out :)
How could you even die in NMZ you have 1000 hp buffer and when its running out you just exit
I think most people are used to doing the NMZ instance until they die. I don’t think I’ve ever used the potion to leave.
So do you lose your items if you die? Does the dream guy hold them? How does that work?
It works the same, you just lose HC status
Oh, ok good.
Rather, your group loses one life
nothing is safe apparently
I think lms is
Are there any safe deaths whatsoever? None I can think of (soul wars maybe?)
PvP minigames. so LMS, Soul Wars, Castle Wars, and probably the Deul Arena
Makes sense actually. Because fight pit is a medium diary achievement and castle wars is elite.
Not making them safe deaths would be bizarre.
Also PvP is way less in your control than PvM. A well seasoned player can practice enough and make all PvM 99.999% deathless, even the best PvP player can't say the same.
Except c engineer?
First c engineerostly does PKing, not PvP, he fights people that are not prepared to fight back, that's how he gets such a high KDR. When he actually fights someone who is geared to fight back he is still decent but also loses fairly often.
He fights people not prepared? What is his bounty up to right now?
He doesn't fight anyone, he escapes lol
Also the death during Fremmenik Trials.
Yeah because you don't die 👍
The warrior spares you
Assuming you make it to the final round.
LMS I bet
Only safe pvp deaths are allowed, such as LMS, castle wars, and soul wars.
Someone is going to knock out an entire team in one shot doing this.
Should be changed tbh it's kind of ridiculous considering how easy it is for other players to get you killed in it
You can play pest control with your trusted GIMPs only at any other server.
That would make Castle wars unsafe and make a HCGIM with Castle Wars armor god-tier.
No one gets castle wars armour by playing the game on official worlds, it's pretty much all just rigged by ticket farmers so you only get 1 ticket per 20 minute game. Only realistic way to get it is by making a game with an alt.
Pvp minigames are safe
The safest thing for gimp doing pc is to climb the towers and range/mage from there to avoid griefers
And they shouldn’t have to do that. This is textbook definition griefing and could be considered Disruptive Behavior
Some people will say getting PK’d in the wilderness is griefing and they’re wrong, this is griefing. In wildy players play with the game mechanics as intended. In this clip a player is misusing the game mechanics to kill and ruin the game for HCGIM, especially since in the game mode they are on the same team. There is no other explanation behind purposely killing your teammate other than griefing
It’s technically not against the rules yet but I wouldn’t be surprised if Jagex patched it in a future update
Exactly, actively sabotaging his own team in the process
This is funny tho lol hahah
It’s fucking hilarious I agree 100%. Only thing that would have made it better if he took out a whole HCGIMP family at once
But still it’s toxic and now we have evidence so it must be fixed
Hcgim is just a flawed game mode. It wont get perfect.
I have to agree, pking in wildy is part of the game and you risk that yourself by going in there. But playing a minigame only to have your literal teammates go out of their way to make you die is in every sense of the word griefing and should be punishable at that point.
Haven't you been able to do this for years?
Yes but GIM is the first time there’s been any penalty outside losing the single round of pc
You don't even lose the round if you die, you just respawn at the lander and can go back to killing the pests
Yea but jagex decided hcgim needed entirely different rules than a normal hcim for some reason
Oh yes, because getting the top tier mage gear and ranged weapon in a safe pvm environment makes sense...
I mean youre not wrong, but imo all minigames should be considered safe activities
Pay attention and don't afk if you don't wanna die
This shouldn't be the kind of thing you have to worry about.
Is that HD? Pest control looks dope af now
That it is, fella
Nice! Deff trying the HD client after seeing this. Thank!
Its the runelite client.
Search "117" in the plugin hib to get it.
TACTICAL NUKE INCOMING
Funny how this sub cries about losing a spade in a designated PvP area but toxic af behaviour like this is getting praised.
But ironmen pk accounts (KempQ and other unique accounts) are praised/loved.
A negative times a negative is a positive
Yeah people love RWT'ers. Its sad.
This sub would virtually lynch someone for intentionally hopping around just to tag ironmen's mobs for an hour yet intentionally going out of the way to kill someone and take their hc status is praised lmao
Maybe don't afk an unsafe group hcim activity then
Maybe don't intentionally kill your teammates in a commonly afk'd activity. How many people fletch shit tons of darts/bolts/arrows in PC for easy fletching XP? I know of quite a few people who knocked out 99 fletching at PC while being afk.
Yeah because I was totally doing that
This is actual griefing but people like it because it's funnier I guess.
Begin the mental gymnastics
Bruh, the subreddit ain't a single hivemind. It isn't hard to think that it's different people making both those comments.
I think they're just laughing at it and giving visibility because they think it's going to be patched. That's why I'm laughing anyway
It's almost like you're generalizing 2 completely different groups of people
They swap to retribution as they die too, that's AHK right
Next step Jagex about to introduce squid game hardcores where of you die in game you get killed irl.
Everyone would just avoid combat entirely unless forced to like actually do quests/inferno or something lol
It's honestly really bad game design that these aren't safe deaths.
This game is already inconsistent enough with all the random wilderness mechanics changes . We don't need randomly different mechanics for Hardcores and group Hardcores as well.
We don't need more afk fucks in this game mode
Everyone keeps saying they were AFK but no one can tell me exactly which ones were. One guy is clicking between monsters the other turns on pray. They are just focused on the shifters to see the bomb coming and who would expect for their own teammate to do that
I too carry large quantity's of money while doing minigames
That’s actually their money from completing games of pest control
This is because I was running back and forth between the GE to see what weapon was the best to buy to do this
i would think chins, personally
i think crystal halberd technically does more damage
Not chins or barrages? I'm assuming you thought of them, interesting to see tge D2H find some use
Sorry to hear that.
Not everybody is high enough level to get several mill from bossing or skilling in a short period of time. I only have 5 days total playtime on my account of course i consider it a large quantity. It kinda is when you consider 62-99 monkfish would net you like 23m, 80 to 84 slayer for my friend earned him 11m which was almost 1m slayer experience. I consider it a large quantity if it takes you more then a day to earn it.
Youtube videos and streamers have really fucked perception of wealth. 16m isn't an insignificant sum for the average player.
Is 16m really that much?
Seen some very creative trolls in GIM recently.
This one takes the cake.
I walked into Draynor bank earlier today and somebody had managed to get the dark wizard to actually stand in the doorway indefinitely and attack the people going in 😂 Got hit twice before I realised, lucky he didn't max hit me or I'd have had been the dreaded first group death. Had to fully swap worlds to get into the bank because they managed to get him to not reset hahahaa
I've seen way more creative ones but for me it's the best so far, because you'd never expect if you've clicked the bank on the minimap and if you've already run in he's getting a minimum of two hits on you before you can get away
Time to get some combat levels I think 🤔
It is griefing but since the update just dropped and it's the weekend jagex hasn't had enough time to see it happen and make a statement or change anything, so people have just assumed it's not against the rules or a shit thing to do
shit thing to do. Technically not against the rules.
Disruptive Behavior is a rule.
Getting the popcorn cause this is a spicy post.
I think it's pretty dumb that the "easy" version of ironman mode randomly features stricter rules for lives.
I wouldn't be surprised if jinglefax makes PC safe, and possibly extends it to other traditionally safe pvm activities.
But I'm laughing my ass off in the mean time
Jagex already stated that they want HCGIM to be a prestigious challenge, in my opinion anyone looking for easy mode Ironman should pick the blue helm...
If your friendships last through your hardships like team mates dying actual deaths (traditionally dangerous activities) and fighting over resources and task allocation, I'd say that's prestigious in itself.
I do agree the blue helm is the better option for casual players, but I just don't understand why a pest control death should count against you.
Because hcim probably should never have had any safe deaths anyway. Much more straightforward to just say "no safe deaths" than cherry pick ones like fight caves and cox and leave it open to debate
Sure but jagex didn’t think that way then so changing the rules for group hc seems kinda of stupid because it just adds a layer of inconsistency which is just as bad if not worth than having some safe death locations
So because jagex used to think something should be one way, it can never be any other way even if it makes more sense? It's a common complaint that hcim shouldn't have so many safe deaths and be able to get items like a tbow by doing safe pvm, and I guarantee if hi scores weren't a thing jagex would probably change standard hcim as well. If you make a hardcore group and don't actually know what to do to avoid losing lives, it's on you.
I'm not a fan of minigames like this not being a safe death. They're safe for everyone else, as in there's no items lost or penalty for dying. Although I can see the logic in making bosses like the inferno an unsafe death as it is a boss not a minigame
The inferno is actually technically a minigame. It has a minigame icon on the map and everything.
It is definitely a bit weird, particularly in minigames where, as we can see, you can get killed by other players due to no fault of your own. Maybe it is meant to help balance out how much easier the group aspect and theoretical multiple lives makes the mode.
Yikes, that's an easy report maybe go touch grass instead of being a douche...
You guys just love being raged at, don't you?
This is funny, but it 100% is griefing and deserving of a ban too
Griefing others for no reason. Reported
Rip your Hc gimp
Like I'd waste my time playing gimp. The issue is griefing new players which kills off the game we all enjoy. I'm sure you ate playdoe as a child.
And that's why it's dumb that minigames aren't safe deaths. You shouldn't be able to be griefed by other players like this and honestly this should be banable. If that's not disruptive behavior I don't know what is.
Downvoted, you make the community of the game worse, and straight up grief other players with this.
you can downvote without making a comment LOL
*Well then Mr redditor, you think it's funny to grief other players who chose the daunting path of the hard-core gimp man. This behavior is obtrusive and aprensively toxic. Be warned, as I've downvoted you. And now, now dear redditor, you will hear my wrath in my comments*
I took the time to click on your profile, the first thing I see is the fact that you post in r/Kanye
Why do people have to be assholes? Honestly everyone posting that they intentionally got a GIM team killed should just be banned, this level of toxic behavior is just uncalled for.
Such a sad way to spend a weekend
I get GIMs are fair game in the wildy. But isn't this just straight-up griefing?
u/Mod_Kelvin Here is a blatant example of disruptive behavior and griefing others for no gain other than to ruin players experience. Are you going to do anything about this?
They really just need to make it so splatter damage only counts if it was hit by one of your GIM teammates
TEACHER PLEASE TEACHER COME QUICKLY MATTHEW STOLE MY DORITOS PLS TEACHER SUSPEND HIM
I bet you honestly thought that was funny when you commented it.
yeah and it's still funny when i reread it
fuck, you actually were the kid that ratted on everyone weren't you hahahaha
Imagine expecting jagex to do something
Pay attention to the game, don’t afk, and eat up. Keep complaining 😂
haha ur so funi dud luv trollin teh nubs hehe xd cx
edit: I know if someone griefed you, you would be upset. Since its not you its funny. Just a very basic mind you have.
I don't have to call your mommy, I'm currently on top of her.
Fucked up, funny, but really fucked up. A more harmless version of this is to knock out the DHers in PC since it doesn't ruin accounts lmao
Pretty toxic man, wildly is fair game but this is just being a douche.
i mean they can move away....
This is like saying don't fall for a lure.
This is griefing and should result in a ban.
Clicking away from an exploding monster is NOT the same as falling for a lure
People have been banned for tagging iron man Corp kills to steal the kc. That’s at worst a 10min fuck around.
This ruins their hardcore status by abusing multiple niche game mechanics that not everyone even knows. Until I watched this I had no clue HC status was lost for GIM in PC
I didn’t even read the updates, my friend told me GIM came out so I logged back on, people know how splatters work, stacking 5-10 of them and detonating them all on one tick to 1hit everyone is not a standard mechanic.
They would not be there if this player didn't directly lure them to them.
>Ban them for not letting me afk while playing a gamemode designed for people who don't have the self control to limit themselves
Whether you like it or not, harassing another player is a reportable offence. Collecting a large amount of one mob, luring them to a specific player, and purposefully killing him because it will ruin his account is close to the worst kind of player harassment. People have gotten banned for tagging Ironman Corp kills, this is far more destructive.
It’s hilarious, but also such a cunt thing to do, it would definitely make people quit or at the very least restart.
Your life is seething if you have to resort to literal griefing in a game to feel anything. I genuinely pity you.
People care too much about hardcore. This gentleman is trying to cure you.
Unironically would make this bannable for griefing. 2 week vacation.
Reported his dumb ass too, hope he gets reported so often its a automatic ban.
This is funny but Jagex should also fix it so GIM can only take splatter damage if it was hit by one of their GIMPs
This is fucking beautiful
Let the bodies hit the floor
So cruel, yet so funny. Those poor boys
The reason this is sad is that the person posting this video has had a social interaction with the GIM before, saying 'GL on the grind fella' etc and basically pretending to be a genuine human being. Its the equivalent of luring imo, honestly super scummy.
yeah, literally a sociopathic piece of shit
Love how everyone was all for GIM release but as soon as it comes out everyones just discussing ways to troll them. Love it.
Imagine doing this while wearing a cheese cape
I can't even fathom having such a sad life you have to troll people like that in a game. feels bad man
Sorry for your groups lost life. Not.
Thank you for your service
I get the irons are mad…. But I have to wonder why they didn’t react to the splatters bouncing up the stairs… I would have run for the hills seeing all that approach, even if I am a normie……
Because they were AFKing and leeching off of everybody else's effort in the minigame.
My fucking hero
pretty sad if you spend time on griefing game than actually trying to play this minigame
I already have full elite void thanks for the concern though
Why it matter? Killing people in wild is ok because that is what wild is for.
Disrupting minigame instead of trying to protect knight and destroy portals is pathetic.
I do find this very funny but there is a fine line between hilarious and purposely griefing with something like this I'll admit.
I mean there's no fine line here, this is objectively griefing. People might find it funny, but that doesn't change what it is lol
you're playing a team game where a fundamental point of it is to survive and not die, and not only that, you're putting your lives in the hands of random people by playing pest control.
Omg I love watching more methods to kill gimps, this truly is the greatest time line
Lmfaoooo i wanna try this now
What an empty existence.
HCGIM: How dare you have fun in a game Im trying to have fun in! How dare you?!?!
Not a joke, a couple HCIMs did that to me in Wintertolt. Wouldn't stop sending me that exact same message (apart from "have fun" being replaced with "ruin my experience"), over and over, despite not replying.
People are so salty about this post,lol.
Don’t get why people are so mad about this. They went in knowing that it’s a dangerous mini game and they surely knew before hand that this mini game is prone to trolling (leaving doors open on purpose, slamming doors in people’s faces, killing dhers with splatters, etc.). Calling for this dude to get banned for harassment is like trying to get a pker banned for killing an ultimate Ironman at the Wildy ditch. Sure it’s a dick move, but uim have to accept that risk, why can’t hcgim?
Don't get why people are so mad about getting beat up on the street. They went out knowing that it can be dangerous and they surely knew beforehand that it's something that can happen. Calling for assaulters to be thrown in jail is like getting a boxer banned for beating his opponent. Sure it's a dick move, but boxers have to accept that risk, why can't other people?
So long as you dont kill the void knight to end the game, (one game its whatever but people like trolling so it can spread/start happening every game) this shit is a good laugh
so ruining someones hc status is fine and a good laugh but god forbid it slightly inconvenience you or other people? I see what the kind of people who do this are really like.
"Luuuul kill the hardcore, just don't ruin MY experience"
Well if a minigame became unplayable by trolls, thats a bigger issue than losing a status symbol on a limited life game-mode. Which they should not be afking
You signed up for extra difficulty mode? Well here ya go! 😋 Nice work OP
I love this. Can't wait for the dissertations and theses on why this is "toxic"
No thesis required. It's funny but clearly toxic.
I mean, it literally is. Its fucking funny, but its obviously toxic. It's going out of your way to not play the objective and grief players. I still love these posts though
is it not? I didnt know part of being a hc was looking out at all times for asshole players.
There IS one, it's called the wilderness.
Lmaoooo this is the best thing I’ve seen in this sub for a while
I want to know how many downvotes this has so I know how many Redditors are HC GIM players...
I’m a hcgim and I find this hilarious
lol, I was looking for something fun to do since I've been losing interest in this game. Guess this will be it.
