    New mob claiming system

    Someone on another board said that after the last update the "/targetnpc
    /ja "Provoke" <t>" macro doesn't work anymore when camping mobs. Apparently they pop already dead now too. I hadn't really noticed it until I had read that post, but the other day my LS was camping Behemoth and it popped purple for me. Some JP group claimed it, so it's not really unusual for the mob to pop purple, but there were about 30 NAs spamming their macros and 3 JP.
    Anybody know if the macro spamming doesn't work anymore?

    i think nobody uses /targetnpc anymore. It works still but there is a better way. Some people say its faster, some people say its the same.

    I've noticed monsters popping dead then coming to life too.. but i don't see how that would effect /targetnpc /ja "Provoke" <t>. As far as mobs popping purple, that's nothing new

    Some monsters pop dead to me now, others don't. I don't really understand the new system that well, but from the last few NMs I've camped, it doesn't really help me over jp voke.

    You can not attack that target. Your target is already claimed.

    This is what usually happens when you spam claim against a better connection. You will get messages about the better connections claiming it while it still does not exist on your connection. You will usually get 3-4 "you must specify a valid target" AFTER the claim message comes up on the screen. Obviously it exists for them but not for you until you get the "your target is already claimed" message.

    You right lol always happen to me, and even at Fafnir camp lol even when take off Flies File to help us beat JP LS. but even that is not working lol. my idea was for SE to make all HNM trigger pop for A, F & B. can only make that quest once a day and the item u get is too pop normal quality HNM and sometime anyday randomlly u get an HQ item to pop the King version at least there they won;t be any complain about claiming HNM

    That'll get you banned from the game. There isn't really anything that can be done about JP connection except giving us NA servers.

    When the whole mob popping dead came about, I thought it was SE's solution to the connection problem, but the problem now is that we see it dead, but it'll be up and claimed for jps before its up to us

    Whats sad is that SE swears that there is no lag between JPN and NA clients, even after extensive testing... WHATEVER!

    the dumbass in the audience who asked the question used the wrong terminology and allowed them to escape the issue

    "lag" is a pretty relative term, "latency" isn't. if square wants to really argue that we have the same latency to a server on the other side of the world as the people who are within like a 500 mile radius of the server, they need to go back to grade school or something

    To many people don't understand how the internet is set up.

    You could be sitting right beside the server, connected to a different ISP and have more latency then someone 500 miles away, who peers with them.

    Just because you live "close" to the server, means nothing

    it's just not that simple......

    Its simply enough to me. When I see provoke in my log 3 seconds before the mobs pop on my window, I'm reminded that there is indeed a difference in our latency.

    BAN me lol forwhat taking off Flies .dat there is nothing cheating about that. me using a bot, or claiming the mob beofre it pop using a packet sniffer that would be cheating. there is nothing about cheating but give me a little + or chance to pull, bcz when u go everyday wait 3hr and u never pulled and see the same and same LS over over again win pull. anyone could be frustrated. so ppl changing there mog House are cheater's too i guess. Anyway to my point of view there is nothing about cheating of what i do but a little help, that still don;t help since i still don;t pull lol. so where is the cheating there

    Because people changing their Moogle to look like Lion is really a terrible thing.

    I didn't say that the latency isn't there. I agree with you that it is.

    My statment is that SE cannot do anything about the lag/latency you get.

    The only way I can see them fixing this problem is have the data for the spawn time of the NM sent to all users in that zone, and when their clock reaches that time, the NM pops.... only problem with this would be that someone would find this data, and it would be a whole other problem.

    Or they can have like a 5 second time where it's unclaimable and LET people know they're getting beat because of latency~
