Because the way I read the design documents (who knows what really exists), it won't be.
- There apparently will be dire consequences for killing race partners or allies (unless your guild is at war, I would suppose).
- It appears Darkfall will have a map large enough to make many places essentially safe. And realm chat should be able to warn people about the occasional trains roaming in rear areas if they are concerned about it.
So for me, this is all good. Because I do enjoy doing other things in MMORPGs besides always watching my back. But I keep reading post after post here talking about how Darkfall will only attract the (small) hardcore PvP crowd, etc.. And I wonder why. I'm not a hardcore ganker, and I will still be taking a serious look at the game.
