How do you justify it as a reasonable and favorable aspect of gameplay for Genesis? You are perhaps an unofficial spokesperson for the pvp cause.Creed wrote:I don't understand why all the pfighters usually gang up on others?
If you prefer to just insult people who ask the question, that is fine, of course. But, maybe answering it can provide some interesting discussion. Your choice!
Well I usually pkill to settle a grudge/a guild conflict.
And personally I prefer to kill larger player, its more of a sport.
I have on several occasions killed players quite a bit larger than myself, so the "picking on the weak ones"
does not really fit my profile, I've prolly killed more myths than the rest of the game combined...
As for Creed's comment on why doesnt the pkillers gang up on eachother and kill eachother, I could
show you my track record, and you'd see that many of my kills fall into that category.
I prefer killing those who are skilled in playerfighting, and I actually do avoid hunting/killing those who
are not good at it, cause its just not as much fun(unless there's personal dislike involved ofcourse, then
its alot of fun!)
As for the random killing of people, I don't do it that often, most of the time the people who appear to
be killed at random are not so random, usually there's some kind of motive behind it.
Perhaps just the fact that the player is a well known scripter/pkiller/cheater/douchebag.
Sometimes its guild affiliation, if I have a quarrel/conflict with their guild, its easier
to make the leaders react by killing of some of their younger members , its tactical warfare simply.
