    How to: Steal Kirin/JoL from RMTs

    http://kanican.livejournal.com/4284.html

    So after being screwed over by RMT for a 3rd event night in a row because they keep hogging Kirin, I decided to use this little bug on them and steal their Kirin. This bug involves no third party tools - you can do this on a PS2. Unfortunately I actually had to give this Kirin back to the RMT due to some LS policies on stealing and RMT, but I hope others will use this to screw them over.

    Basically SE poorly programmed the way pop NMs are claimed. If you see RMTs gathering for Kirin, JoL, or the other 3 jailers outside, have a member check the ??? and just stay there reading the text. When anyone (RMTs) pop the NM, the NM will claim to you 100% of the time and not the actual person that traded the item. This is a really old bug I think. It generally works on any pop NM where the ??? you trade to has multiple lines of text - aka you get locked in the text box and have to press enter a couple times to move again (and you will see that little down arrow in the text box). So this won't work on Byakko sadly.

    SE isn't going to get rid of RMT - the problem is just too large to fix in the short-term; however, you can probably cheese some free Novio earrings at their expense using this.

    Wow, that's awesome. I enjoy screwing with RMT but thus far it's been limited to mpking/cockblocking them in Wajaom. Time to step it up a notch :D

    Does this mean you can hold Dynamis zones by staying locked in the text box after trading glass? I never tested it...

    I definately was not the person to figure it out. This is an extremely old bug from 2004 that just never got fixed. I believe there was a BG post obscurely referencing this as well a long time ago. I guess the info was lost or forgot about by most people for awhile. Before the RMT problem, the only thing you could potentially do with this was be an ass and cock block / steal Kirin from other LSs.

    I think the biggest possibility is jacking JoLs for Novios at the RMTs' expense; but also just messing with them in general to the point where it affects their bottom line. I never considered my server to be all that bad as far as RMTs went. We didn't have the RMT with the W. Body (hi Asura) or anything crazy like that. But in the past few weeks, we've had 2 RMT KB claims + GM showing up and various other bullshit and it's just getting ridiculous.

    Also, before everyone jumps ahead, I have not actually tried this specifically on JoL to date. I will as soon as the oppurtunity arises though. I think this is well worth testing as you can essentially waste a whole week of RMT farming by doing this. I figure the bug is within the way pop NMs are claimed so it should apply across all NMs. I'm sorry for posting misinformation if it turns out you can't do this on JoL, although I've fairly sure you can. Definatley works on Kirin though.

    Hahah, very nice. This is to be tried

    Don't think it's 'a solution' to the RMT problem though This is more like when you want a free Kirin or have fun, RMT won't leave or give up, ever.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?
