Gosh I cannot stand it. They always go on about it forever when they have no proof. For example:



Dumbperson101:You noob dont shoot the cannon!

Dumbperson101:FFs you are making us lose points.

Me:Prove it...

Dumbperson101 had just logged out.



Then they go to say something about me going to read the rules, well it says anyone can shoot the cannon and it never mention losing points.



And I could understand someone saying something like no because in the advanced breakdown it show Eggs Exploded. Well to anyone that thinks that means eggs shot, it means when the collector picks up the wrong egg or has a full inventory and tries to pick one up.



So anyway I dont like when people do that.. :notalk:

By shooting the cannon at monsters, you are eliminating potential points for your team.



you recieve points for defence, for example, for how many runners you kill. if someone kills them with the cannon, then they have lost the potential points for killing that runner.

Okay good point, say you were in a situation where there were a few runners going toward exit, would you rather lose 3 points or eliminate the chance of losing the points?



Saying that the runner was going to get through.



I suppose that there are certain times when shooting it is unorthodox and it can help. BUT the point is saying you actually lose points not not get them.



Sorry for double negative lol, couldnt think of anything else.^

Its worth it if you have a decent defender to leave the cannon...

But if you have a rubbish defender (90% of the time) cannon it to save yourself points

And by letting the runners get past, the entire team (including the defender) loses even more points



What I absolutely hate about this issue is how this all started with losing POTENTIAL points. And now, because so many idiots are simply minding, it's become a belief that firing the cannon acctually deducts points. How can people be such idiots?



I guess the only solution is for people to form teams with only people they know or trust to have common sense.

Someone will need to ask JAGeX to place an announcement on the Official Forums about it. I'm F2P, and I can share your pain.

You chose the wrong rant to bring this kind of arrogance in. It is a problem, because of some dumb rumor now tons of people have the wrong idea. It would be fine if they just made a lot of noise about it, but some idiots will go as far as to kick you off the team for using the cannon. Obviously this is a problem, not just a one-time thing.

If it is problematic as that, then bring your own team to BA and let the idiots that made the rumor play for hours trying to get their defender to do his job.

This time it's fine, what if this rumor spreading problem ends up affecting us?

By killing a runner you lose the defender massive points.

By killing a healer the healer loses points.

By not shooting the cannon the collector loses points.



It's a lose/lose situation unless you shot the attackers monsters.



If the defender, healer, or collector lose points the team loses points.

Ya, I hate it when people did that.

And it's funny because most of the time when you fire it you get the Runners (because the Healers are fairly easy killed by the healers) and the Defender isn't the one complaining.



I let the defender have a extra minute or so to try and get all the runners if all the other jobs are done but after that I just want it to get over with and shot at them. It's also pretty easy to get your way if your a higher level because people with have more respect for you :wink:

Right from the horses mouth. :)



EDIT: Sorry, I just wanted to get the word out.



And since it's been edited out, it says that the cannon does not lose points. From Mod Davina.

good job killer :) ^^



it winds me up no end too. It is especially the people who tell you to read the manual or something. It's just like the old PC rumour that using specials on portals gives more spinners. Some idiot just started the rumour and now almost everyone on w6 believes it. It is really frustrating and I dont want to play BA much anymore

I completely agree, but it's worse when dozens of runners have gone through and the defender complains your costing them points <.<
