first off, howdy all, it's been a couple months since i even lurked, let alone posted, but i figured i would drop a line and say hi. i've been hiding in international waters for a month and a half (avoiding Bush?) doing oceanography stuff, then off to jolly old England for a couple weeks at Cambridge doing more research. At any rate, I'm done hiding and am back home working and playing when I get time, so hopefully I'll bump into some of you online again.
second off, i've been playing almost exclusively with another group (who cannot be named here, but suffice it to say it's not the one we're not supposed to talk about ) and someone there is insisting that when you run, your defense drops to zero and "monsters have 100% chance to hit you." I'm pretty sure that's wrong- I know it drops blocking, but didn't think it did anything to defense. As this forum is clearly the most intelligent (or at least most addicted) group of players i know, I figured someone here could give me the correct answer. Thanks, and stay safe!
