It has recently come to our attention that people are circumventing the relatively recent changes to posture shifting.
We added in a delay that made it take longer to go from Guarded, to Defensive, to Neutral, to Offensive then to Kamikaze, a round for each posture.
Some clever players have decided that it is easier to just stop attacking and start attacking to immediately go from Guarded or otherwise to Offensive, and thusly circumventing the coded changes.
This is against the rules. If you are doing this, you are breaking the @rules. If you see someone doing this, you should be xhelping so we can address it. Please xhelp and check with Staff if you think of a way to get around a coded restriction and you aren't sure if it's an exploit.
Your best bet is to let the code do its thing and not try to force results by interrupting the experience.
1.E. Circumventing In Game Code
The game is not perfect and due to either code constraints or database
constraints, we can not always prevent things that would normally be
prevented in the real world. Exploiting these gaps is forbidden. One
example of this would be to spam door codes in order to get access to
a room or area that your character does not know the access code to,
this type of behavior is strictly forbidden. If you have a question
or are unsure what this section covers, please ask an admin for clarification before attempting.
