Hello there! Im new to mmorpgs and havent played any,yet. Im a student studying computer games design and over the past week have been reading up on mmorpgs.
The area of PK's and the ppl they have killed is something which really caught my attention. Some of the solutions applied by some games are terrible! From one game where players had to ask,"may i kill/attack you?"(this one had me in stitches) too others where PK's were running riot due to there being no consequences for thier actions at all!
What about the player which has been killed, what should happen to them? Currently games allow the killed to re-appear with everything at a set point in the game-world. Their items, their stats and health all unchanged! Come on, they just died!
As i said im just getting to know mmorpgs and am looking for peoples opinion on this area from both avid players and anyone who has one.
