Why Is Fist of Guthix So Unbalance

Recommended Posts

If you are playing in f2p I think is the simple numbers game. Lower level players > Higher level players. I'm 96 and usually get paired up with no one over 60 when I'm at FOG :lol: . As far as matching people I don't think there is anything to it just random.

Yeah tbh you really are wasting your time at FOG at lvl 20. You can't be racking up many tokens. Go out and train your combat and skills then do some fog?

I owned badly, when FOG came out, I was cmb 34-35, I was 1 def 1 pray, I owned ppl badly for 2 weeks, I owned people lvl 50-100 all the time, until 2 weeks of its release was over and I got bored, spent 595 tokens, uncharged everything, I was lvl 38, I sold the items for about 400kish. I still got the pictures of kills.


My goals:
[b]5M coins:[/b] 4350K+ coins 200k+ items - 2 dec 
5M coins - 16 dec
I [b]have gotten[/b] my 5M by christmas.

-bah this is only here for historical purposes now, I got 20m+ already

"Colours suck."

*I remove colours*

"Where did all the colors go!? This is now 40% more likely to be tl;dr'd due to the lack of colors."

To answer you question, the answer is yes. Jagex lowers the stats of higher leveled people than you for a reason: to try and balance it. I have 80 HP, but a level 40 can hit 13s and 14s and pull my HP down to 30% in no time.

 

 

 

Here are some suggestions, though:

 

 

 

Learn how to avoid getting hit so much.

 

 

 

Try to outsmart the higher level player.

 

 

 

Level up until you are level 80+.

 

 

 

Do something about the problem, or don't ever complain.

Exactly. In Runescape, the more time you spend augmenting your levels and abilities, the more advantages you will have in the game.

Fist of Guthix is about strategy. I've seen lvl 40's beat lvl 120's. They put the houses and different objects in the mini-game for a reason didn't they?

Your combat really doesn't matter in FoG. A level 3 could beat a 138. :\

Highly unlikely. Sure, strategy plays a big role, but so do stats. Being 91 Str and 90 Att, it's much easier to KO someone with a few DDS specs than if I was weaker. Same goes for having high Hitpoints and Defence.

If the 138 loses connection or is Afk. Yes combat does matter. I was paired with a lvl 10 and I'm 108. When he was hunting me I killed him (how's he supposed to beat that?)

If you have a strategy anyone can win in FOG regardless of level. Good luck.

 

 

 

That's like saying a level 3 can score a point in Castle Wars on a full world. Possible, but more rare than Christmas Crackers. There are exceptions to everything you know, but generally speaking higher combat is definitely one of the best advantages in PVP.

It's so I can rack up 100 rating in 10 minutes from level 10's trying to punch through 82 defence and 78 hitpoints. They usually end up quitting :(

 

 

 

I play for fun though, I really don't care either way, but I usually lose 1 of about every 50 games played. I'm yet to play in a members world though.

Well, you're a low level. You will be affected by hits more than higher leveled players. It's really the way it is. :(

The game may be about strategy (and a bit of luck), but the fundamental building block of any defense in fog is to spend the maximum amount of time collecting points, and even if you ar enever attacked, the maximum time you can be hunted is determined by your hitpoints.

 

 

 

The game is quite balenced though, unless some over eager low level (under 30 I'd say) trys to play in which case, no its not balenced just like every other game. People work for their levels and the advantages that go with them, so naturaly even in a game devoted to the god of balence, levels will always give you an edge.

its not because when you are in the middle your stats are horrid when you are hunted and it just takes some skill to beat anyone.

I faced a lvl 3 before (I'm lvl 101 f2p). In these cases combat does matter, I one hit him with addy arrows, and he maged me while I sat at center for 5000 charges(he was lvl 6 combat by the end)

Train your combat and think of some strategy. The first time I did Fist of Guthix I got paired with a 48 and I was 96. Thought it was going to be easy but the 48 beat me. :oops: Didn't know the hunted had his stats lowered. At least Jagex gave that as an advantage. ;)

It is balanced except for the whole hitpoints thing. i have 85 hp plus 75 in bandages. that is 160 hp that needs to be knocked off. whereas a lvl 3 had 85 hp total.

How can you heal 15 with a bandage on 10 hp? It's no 85, it's a max of 55 if he always heal at 1 hp. also fog fail because you gain magic exp... Theres so many idiots just trying to train mage that it ruin the fun. -_- Fog was fun the 1st weeks it came out.

theres just a lot of low level people and not very high level people to make a balance and i'm fairly sure that theres no matchmaking criteria for FOG. besides most high level wouldnt waste there time with FOG and just buy the weapons uncharged, play a little bit, reload and go on their way
