Magical interference caused the list window to close O . O

Recommended Posts

Yeah you read the title right, can we actually removed that bug/feature, heard this was to prevent people from macroing, if anything it only makes me want to start macroing because it's annoying.

Quite sure many people will agree

 

Sometimes can't even add 6-7 items without window closing 4-5 times

I absolutely agree with this for a few reasons:

  • It's annoying to mixers who follow the rules.
  • If you're a rule breaker, it's trivial to bypass this.
  • I think anti-macro belongs on the server rather than in some screwy UI feature.

Radu asked for for this when I implemented the items lists.  There is a 1/64 chance that it happens but I agree its annoying and for me, does feel more than 1/64.  Perhaps Radu could comment if he is happy for it to be removed, in which case I would be delighted to remove it.

Or at the least, upping it to like 1/1000 or so. Maybe more. Any form of random is going to be a problem for macroing, but higher chances are only annoying to normal players.

 

That 1/64 is with clicking each object in a list, which can be 5-7 clicks per restock while mixing. That alone makes the 1/64 feel like more often.

 

But that's a second option, anything that essentially annoys/punishes players just to hurt the rare macroer is never a good thing.

I am not sure that this feature is anything that really helps a macro player, my measurement would be the speed on how fast people are restocking, while normal player need to move between itemlist and inventory, and are more error prone because of that, people with macro can do that pretty instant, thanks to autoclick. so record those times and those people who go to fast are for sure using macro.

Well yes, of course, but that's after the fact and a lot of work.  The idea behind the "magical interference" is to stop it in the first place.  Now that said, my opinion is this doesn't do much to stop it and the annoyance it causes far outweighs any potential benefit.  I'd love to see it gone.
