Attempting to throw a bola (and missing) does not aggro

"If you try to attack someone with a spell or any melee attack and you miss or the target evades the spell and receives no damage, you still aggro the target, however you can attempt to throw as many bolas as you like at a target and will not aggro until one lands. No other attack allows you to take as many turns as you can without aggressing. 

Expected result: swinging a bola at a target to aggro"

    I believe you can throw shuriken and don't aggro until you hit even remaining hidden but it's been a second

    By much less severe do you mean doesn't affect your play style?

    “being dismounted is more severe than being poisoned
    but I welcome listing both here”

    “Aggro for fizzled spells is the bug.  Bola don’t hit you maybe it is not for you.  No hit no aggro”

    “More important - if the bola miss where does it go?  Not on ground”

    “(In the interests of declaring conflict of interest. Elvis plays a blue (unsuccessfully) who only flags orange when bola successfully hits while other more capable players are engaged in genuine orange combat. 

    I however am interested in fixing bugs for improving gameplay. No personal gain.)”

    This seems to be working as intended with all thrown items not flagging on a miss

    “That is the Copenhagen interpretation.”

    So a ninja stealth can go near, Bola until someone gets dismounted. Does it break hiding if the Bola misses? If you use archery heavy crossbow to dm, the attacker will be revealed.

    Anyone who plays pvp know dismounting is the first step to kill someone. You almost cannot kill anyone if they continue to run around the world 24/7 like a snow piercer. 


    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    “You’re revealed when you miss but you’re not understanding the flagging,

    the oranges fight each other. But blue people come along and try and bola people, you cannot attack them until you’re actually hit with the bola as the misses do not turn them orange so it doesn’t matter that they are revealed. You cannot defend yourself, they are free to attempt to bola you 100 times and you cannot defend yourself until bolad. Then of course when you’re finally Bola’d all other 20 oranges you’re fighting will kill you instantly as you’re on foot”

    "no, they are blue, cannot attack without getting guard wacked/taking murder count, need town buff

    Also, if they are not aggroed they can recall/go into house, there are clear rules about agressors flagging

    If i played a red and tried to murder you in the guardzone, and you called the guards and the guards wacked you, wouldn't you be annoyed? aggressor is aggressor, victim is victim"

    Maybe fight not in guard zone the thrown items are all behaving appropriately

    “yoshi what the solution when blue Elvis bola you in a guard zone?  think hard you will get it”

    "i am not talking about exclusively in Guardzone
    aggressor should be aggressor, it's very simple, if you attack someone you attack somoene"

    As stated all thrown items working as intended

    Can we please drop this and leave it to Bleak & Misk to decide whether it's a bug or not?
  • We probably could, but our current team still fails at basic communication skills.

    In principle, the moment you attempted a murder you are an aggressor. Even if the murder fail or shot is missed. There is nothing to argue.

    I mean in the real world when u chase someone around with a knife it's an aggressive action. It dies not start after the knife draws blood 
    If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
