One question; under the effects on StarParse, I found that around the end of my parse I was under the effect "Guild Reinforcement Strike" (orbital strike icon). Does anyone know what this is, and if so, how do you disable the proc of this effect? I assume this is not allowed in non-crazy parses. Thanks! :)
It's one of the new guild perks. I'm not sure exactly, but I believe you have a ~6% chance of activating this Orbital strike whenever you attack a target. There is no way to disable it.
It does a lot of damage, so it's not allowed and StarParse doesn't allow it either (your parse won't get listed on the leaderboards).
It was already discussed and Ula said he will deactivate the perk in Beta guild. So if you want to parse, you can either move your character to beta guild or get "lucky" and not have the perk activate during a parse.
But better wait for Ula to confirm this, as I'm not 100% sure... :-)
Hey yes Petr is correct. Not sure where you got the 6% bit from but the rest is good.
I haven't disabled it in Beta guild yet as I was waiting for the perks to change. It seems that happens every two weeks so they rotated again this Tuesday. Some perks are running out towards the start of next week so I'll update them across all guilds then including removing this bonus from Beta guild. I think it's a real shame as it's a fun bonus perk to have.
The orbital strike is not a perk I have selected. It is a bonus we get for having 4 of the same perk (might). So to make this change in Beta guild I have to intentionally pick sub-optimal perks to avoid the bonus.
I think Parsely's decision not to include it is pretty crap since they are allowing every other guild perk. So +9% alacrity/crit/mastery, increased adrenal duration etc are all allowed. I know that is because Parsely can't track them but I still think it's unfair. I know some people go "but it's not fair for people in guilds that don't have those perks" but for me that is like crying about how some people can afford top level augments, stims and adrenals.
Anyhow, the decision is out of my hands. I'll make the change next week to Beta guild so new parses can be submitted.
Yes, I agree with your reasoning and also think that they should be allowed. It's not like we intentionally choose to cheat in parses or something, I hardly even noticed this thing! Thanks for making the change though :)
