Cant we just have PVP XP?

Simply,
Kill someone, get PVP XP, be killed by someone, lose PVP XP.

If you have not killed anyone, you have nothing to lose except your gear and if you have been killing alot of people you have more to lose.

So,
You always get PVP XP from killing someone, no matter if they had any previous PVP XP, but if they do have PVP XP you get a portion of their PVP XP as well!

Exactly what PVP XP is good for I dont know. Maybe its simply normal XP x 100 or something, or you use PVP XP for other types of gains. Like maybe if you reach the first level of PVP XP rewards you unlock some type of bonus. Like you can train a skill so sup guru + 5. Or maybe you get 5% magic resistance... or... well something. Like a "skill tree" in many games. You unlock small buffs by reaching the next level.

But again, the problem with abuse still needs to be solved...

I guess. But more often than not lately it seems the "reward" has been feeling bad about about making another player quit the game... I guess some people maybe think that IS fun, and a reward. But it's probably not a great reward for the game as a whole.

My post was meant to be facetious, and clearly I failed judged by the responses here and private mailings.

Oh, you missunderstand, Irk is detrimental to the game, him leaving will result in people returning cause there wont be an annoying ass bot stealing shit and attacking "on mistake"

Well I thought you meant it. Because it IS true. Feeling good because your enemy feels bad is the current reward, and it's something people have enjoyed before and still do. And its a very real reward, and not really a _bad_ one either. As long as its a fair fight and the loser doesnt feel like quitting the game at least... then something's not really right.

So yeah, if we remove the part where you feel good because your enemy lost stats, then we probably need another reward... is what I think. But we'll see what happens now.

This is a decision that is about 3 years to late.
The opinions in these posts are not that of the player Zestana but that of the player Ilrahil. Having had my account removed due to irreconcilable differences with the administration it is the only way I am able to offer my opinion.
