    It's simple gaming. For those that say you have played this and that, obviously you have stuck with the lighter side of things in those games. You gank, to inspire others Guildies to come fight for their people. This is how you get Guild vs Guild in World PvP. Deal with it.

     

    My post here wasnt meant for drama, it was meant to spread the word. There arent many RPrs left in the World.

    I love hardcore open world PVP and I tottaly agree anything goes. Especially at end game after you've gained max lvl and equips whats left but to kill people? To many care bears here tbh, go play a real open world PVP game and see how long you really last people...I hope tera will be hardcore PVP I used to play conquer online before they screwed that game up. It was epic pvp battles little to no content really just cut throat politics the way I like it. Gotta fight your way to the top!

     

    That approach has been tried...Over and over. It doesn't do all that well in the current western markets. Games that allow ganking or griefing automatically niche themselves in the western markets. Given the time, talent and money it takes to develop one of these games, why would Dev's not wish it to attract the widest possible audience?  Like it or not, there are a lot more CareBears in the west, than there are PvP types.

     There are more anti-PKs than PKs in the West. They are all PvPers. Many people are both Carebears and PvPers. The dividing lines are so blurry as to be nonexistant except  for people at either extreme. So yes to be widely successful a game needs to be both.

    There is  HUGE difference in "pk"  and "pvp"

    Western games go around more of a "pvp" type game where it is mutual, or you are in a zone meant for pvp.

    Pking is usually comprised of "ganking"    Which involves ONE party who is only out to 1-get infamy  2-harass players 3-ruin another players quest  

     

    Ganking is the lowest form of pvp in ANY game, ganking requires no skill and if a whole guild is ganking people to STOP them from leveling up in a area,  is complete crap.

     Since gankng (Player Kiling) is the "lowest form of PvP" it is PvP and can't be hugely different from PvP. PvP cover's a huge spectrum including some forms of PvP that do not involve combat.

    player vs player is when 2 people are fighting each other,  Ganking is when 1 person is attacking someone who is not ready to attack back.  

     

    And whats so wrong with an mmoRPG wanting the ROLEPLAYING to be above the pvp?   Might as well call other mmorpgs that are soley pvp, mmopvp.   

     

    Ganking has no roleplay value in it, and if a game wants the game to be more roleplay then pvp, let them do their thing.   I dont see what the OP was doing here other than trollin.

  • medmarijuanamedmarijuana Member Posts: 282

    The dev is stupid. Some people call true role playing when you get into character. You immerse yourself in the world around you and pretend like you are there. If it is a game that has some kind of war or fighting in the story, than there is a reason to Role play that war out, and sometimes that involves pvp.

     

    RP does not always mean that a person just likes to pve .

     Trying to be all things to all people is almost always a guarenteed fail.  Trying to appeal to more than one type of game, usually makes good sense, but that is far different for needing to appeal to ALL types.

    As for everything else, you lost any credibility with me with your original post, where you complain/denounce the game without showing any type of context.

    Actually "Ganking" refers to use overwhelming numbers...think "Gang." It has nothing to do with a victim who is "not ready to attack back." It always has meant that and always will mean that regardless of how hard people like you and newb Zymurgeist try to spread ignorance.

    Don't worry though, tons of people use the term incorrectly with their own definition.

    Killing someone in an MMO is called "Player Killing," often abbreviated as "PK."

    PKing someone for no reason and who has no chance of defending themselves is generally considered one (of many) way to "grief" another player.

    Using a large group to PK mercilessly against even a single person that would stand no chance is called "Ganking."

    These definitions already exist. Stop trying to change them.

    This is a quote from the story of the game... Funny isn't it, a game about a war, and people are crying because players want to part take in that war against other players?

     

    I like to rp, but the kind of RP i like to do is, I like to log into a game,  I like to immerse myself into the story, the lore, then i play out my role... If my role is a soldier or some kind of combatant for some faction, than that is what I do, and I prefer to fight  against other players.

     

    Some people consider their role and they choose to play it, and some times that invloves PVP. Wether the cry babies like it or not.

     Ganking can certainly have  Roleplay value. I was in a Shadowbane roleplay templar guild that killed or at least tried to kill any non temple toon on sight. It was part of the lore of the game and the guild. For Malorn! and Die Heretic! was our war cry. We certainly didn't ask "Ok you ready?" What's so wrong with a game wanting roleplaying to be part of the PvP. Player versus player is when players compete. Fairly or unfairly. No MMO is solely PvP even if it's not predominantly roleplaying.

     I adheared to those definitions. Unless you believe you can gank someone without being a player killer in the process.  Nice ad hominem though

    Hahaha, whoops, I misread your post. I thought you were saying ganking and pking were one in the same (a common misconception). You're right.

    It wasn't an ad hominem, by the way, I just felt like calling you a newb.

    I have enjoyed reading this thread in its entirety while waiting for my download, and I'd like to thank all participants.

    Ontopic:

    I can appreciate both sides perspectives. In my ealier years of MMOs I was heavy into world pvp, and even ganking on occasion.  At first its very exciting always looking over your shoulder, parking your main where youre lvling an alt, or possibly starting a war in a certain zone. It got old though. These days I only play on PvE realms. I have much less play time than I used to. So when Im trying to farm or get something done I honestly cant be bothered with world pvp.

    Gonna have to gonna check out this game now.

  • Gardavil2Gardavil2 Member Posts: 394

    I do not play this MMO yet, I noticed. Contrary to the opinion of the OP I give a shit.

    I am the biggest CareBear in gaming and I admit it, yet I support PvP in MMOs. There *IS* a purpose and a need in MMO gaming for PvP I believe and I respect the right of Players to seek out PvP and enjoy it as much or as little as they choose to do so. I have and do PvP from time to time as I get the urge to do so and then I enjoy it. The rest of the time I don't. In my case it's that simple. PvP is an important tool of a Player community to not only seek enjoyment but to also police it's own Player population. I encourage the Devs to give the Players the tools they need to handle this situation themselves. If the Devs of this MMO have given the tools the Players need then the Players just need to use them.

    Now I do believe that if certain PvP "tactics" are done in the context of the role play as this MMO seeks to encourage, then these questionable "tactics" may be acceptable ingame between characters. There are times in PvP for ambushes and sneak attacks, a.k.a. Ganking, and there are times for other tactics. That is warfare in the real world, and as all MMOs are populated by real live Players, so to is it that way in MMOs.

    But to start an unceasing flame war and passive-aggressive harassment campaign on this MMOs forums is not acceptable. A MMO forum exists as a communication tool for the benefit of the Devs and the Players to communicate amongst themselves to help a MMO run more smoothly, not as a tool of harassment. Commited "Greifing PvPers know all too well they bite the hand that feeds them if they abuse the Devs and the Entire Playerbase too much. Careful OP, you may have extended your hunting grounds far too wide so to speak.

    We Humans by our very nature are Predators, and even though many of us learn not to submit to our predatory instincts, some people still let those instincts control them. People such as this derive pleasure and enjoyment from virtually harming and harassing other People on the internet and in MMOs. Since what they do makes them feel pleasure, no amount of talking or reasoning with them will do any good at all. Unless a Dev team is prepared to forbid PvP in a MMO then they need to carefully craft their MMO to control this segment of the MMO's population that cannot control themselves. This is common sense. This is real life and real virtual life in any MMO.

    Good Luck to the entire Player community and the Developers of this MMO and I hope that all sides can reach an acceptable "middle ground" to gain enjoyment from this MMO, a "middle ground" that does not destroy what makes this MMO special to begin with.

    The Dev's make the rules... If you do not like the rules, you are welcome to find another game.  Games that allow (let alone encourage) ganking and griefing, seriously limit their appeal in the western markets.   I'm quite looking forward to seeing how this game works out.

    Meh, fail PKers.

    I'm proud to say I'm the hardest PKer you'll ever meet although..

    When people around me, may they be friends or not, get E-rections over constantly beating someone in 5+ v 1 battle, it doesn't excite me. This also amounts to anything that equals the side that is mine having more numbers and the opposite having less.

    During my days I would watch my friends or my faction(if on a war server) pummel the opposition in a 5+ versus X (always less) battle and get watch them get excited, while I sat there....entertained by the whining but still untrilled.

    If I was there I never really touched the player/players that were out numbered unless i hated them/disliked them or their guild.

    I wouldn't shout out "stop raping him" but I wouldn't really get as inclined as they do to rape him, I would just sit there and watch, as much as I like seeing people whine.

    What excites me? I like being the one they are ganking. Yet still being able to take down 1, 2 or 3 before I die.

    Now, I have gotten into situations on war servers where me and a random person had a couple (or many) 1 on 1s before my faction decided to show up with about 10 people to abuse him. While this was going on, I did not attack the player due to "meh, those fights were pretty fun respect" + the fact it still didn't excite me.

    But, if they could not show the same courtesy for me, the next time they saw me on a war server, the "we had fun 1v1s, lol" respect is abolished and that person can expect to feel my wrath even in such things as 20 on 1s. 

    Also, I do not join guilds. I've joined a friends guilds for short bursts of time to help out with certain things and since I value friends I choose not to stay in their guilds as it would screw them over.

    That said, I never join PK/PVP even for short bursts of time.

    Why on earth would I want to join a guild made for PKing? Even if they are top or not.

    No. I refuse.

    I want to anger them, how do I do it? I kill any of their members on site regardless of their level. I don't care if the guild is big or small, I want their guild chat to filled with

    "-Insert my favorite name here- just killed me on server 23 -enter town/city here-"

    And on World Chat where some would scream

    "-insert my favorite name here- is on server 26 in -enter town/city here-"

    In many games I have reached the "notorious" stage in which almost every guild on my server wants me dead anytime they see me. I loved it, the sheer fact they would scatter at the site of me if they did not have enough numbers.

    Regardless of my nature I have managed to make secure friends in MMORPGS which would also fill up the number gap on my side.

    As a PKer I never killed people a certain amount of levels below me unless they asked for it - and another reason stated above- and I never asked or hoped for the same in return. Nope. No way.

    What I wanted? I wanted to be level 50 when some random level 140 guy decides to kill me about 5 times in a row and feel good about it.

    What do I do about it? I dot his name down in my head and say to myself "I will have the power to utterly shame him by the time I hit level 95"

    I have ALWAYS had my vengance unless the person ended up quitting.

    The people in this guild are probably among the carebears in games who I have extorted, made switch guilds, quit the game, change names or make a new character.

    There are 3 things I don't do

    I don't PK anybody a certain level amount below me unless they ask for it or are in a PK guild.

    I don't PK anybody who seems to be getting down and dirty with their quests/level unless ofcourse I already don't like them, they are in a PK guild and so such.

    I don't participate in 10 vs 3 battles and scream out "lol, they're getting owned."

    "We got rid of the trinity." How'd you do that? "Now everyone can heal." Sounds like you just took the mechanic and spread it thin. "Well no, there's one class that can do it better than others." I see, so they're healers. "No. They're.." -mind asplode-

    Sorry but history tends to show that the PK crowd is a small enough crowd to disregard.  The vast majority of successful MMOs do not have standard rulsets that allow Open PKing.  They put all of you on a server together to keep you away from the regular, more important customers -- PvE/instanced PVP players are easier customers to maintain.  I hate to break it to you, but MMOs don't need you -- they never have and never will.

    Good points.  The ganking/griefing crowd makes up a very small percentage of the over all player base.  Those who want FFA full loot gankfests have niche games like Darkfall and Mortal Online(just to name two).  Both those games will never be more than niche. Even a triple A title like Aion, with its bait and switch PvP has had serious problems with retention in the western markets.  I'm quite looking forward to seeing how this game turns out.

    Gaming, Griefing, Corpse Camping = All is fair in love and war.

     

    Hate me all you want, but without me, the world is boring. Without threat from another player coming around the corner the game feels dull. Without someone to get your adrenaline pumping, the game will lose its luster. If all you want is a safe haven, you might as well play a console game. Just saying.

     

    What's funny is that everyone that responded here is over there too. :D No one else even gives a shit. But when the games FAQ catches their eye like it did mine, then they will see my post and:

    1) Play it just to make your lives a living hell

    2) Not play it which brings no revenue to the developers which eventually leads to shutting down the project :D

     

    Good luck




     

    Since you seem to be such a "hardcore" pvper why don't you join the Marines and see some real PvP?

    I don't have a problem with anything that happens to a player once that player knowingly enters into a pvp situation.

    That being said, the only real PK is a solo PK. anything else, intentional or not, is ganking.

    Killing someone with any kind of clear advbantage over them, wether it be numbers, gear or general desire to be in the fight to begin with is lame.

    I tend to agree.

    Please set a sig so I can read your posting even if somebody "agreed" etc with it. Thanks.

    Meh, fail PKers.

    I'm proud to say I'm the hardest PKer you'll ever meet although..

    When people around me, may they be friends or not, get E-rections over constantly beating someone in 5+ v 1 battle, it doesn't excite me. This also amounts to anything that equals the side that is mine having more numbers and the opposite having less.

    During my days I would watch my friends or my faction(if on a war server) pummel the opposition in a 5+ versus X (always less) battle and get watch them get excited, while I sat there....entertained by the whining but still untrilled.

    If I was there I never really touched the player/players that were out numbered unless i hated them/disliked them or their guild.

    I wouldn't shout out "stop raping him" but I wouldn't really get as inclined as they do to rape him, I would just sit there and watch, as much as I like seeing people whine.

    What excites me? I like being the one they are ganking. Yet still being able to take down 1, 2 or 3 before I die.

    Now, I have gotten into situations on war servers where me and a random person had a couple (or many) 1 on 1s before my faction decided to show up with about 10 people to abuse him. While this was going on, I did not attack the player due to "meh, those fights were pretty fun respect" + the fact it still didn't excite me.

    But, if they could not show the same courtesy for me, the next time they saw me on a war server, the "we had fun 1v1s, lol" respect is abolished and that person can expect to feel my wrath even in such things as 20 on 1s. 

    Also, I do not join guilds. I've joined a friends guilds for short bursts of time to help out with certain things and since I value friends I choose not to stay in their guilds as it would screw them over.

    That said, I never join PK/PVP even for short bursts of time.

    Why on earth would I want to join a guild made for PKing? Even if they are top or not.

    No. I refuse.

    I want to anger them, how do I do it? I kill any of their members on site regardless of their level. I don't care if the guild is big or small, I want their guild chat to filled with

    "-Insert my favorite name here- just killed me on server 23 -enter town/city here-"

    And on World Chat where some would scream

    "-insert my favorite name here- is on server 26 in -enter town/city here-"

    In many games I have reached the "notorious" stage in which almost every guild on my server wants me dead anytime they see me. I loved it, the sheer fact they would scatter at the site of me if they did not have enough numbers.

    Regardless of my nature I have managed to make secure friends in MMORPGS which would also fill up the number gap on my side.

    As a PKer I never killed people a certain amount of levels below me unless they asked for it - and another reason stated above- and I never asked or hoped for the same in return. Nope. No way.

    What I wanted? I wanted to be level 50 when some random level 140 guy decides to kill me about 5 times in a row and feel good about it.

    What do I do about it? I dot his name down in my head and say to myself "I will have the power to utterly shame him by the time I hit level 95"

    I have ALWAYS had my vengance unless the person ended up quitting.

    The people in this guild are probably among the carebears in games who I have extorted, made switch guilds, quit the game, change names or make a new character.

    There are 3 things I don't do

    I don't PK anybody a certain level amount below me unless they ask for it or are in a PK guild.

    I don't PK anybody who seems to be getting down and dirty with their quests/level unless ofcourse I already don't like them, they are in a PK guild and so such.

    I don't participate in 10 vs 3 battles and scream out "lol, they're getting owned."

    wtf is a war server?

    define real pvp? griefing is still player vs player, though honestly we aren't really spawn campers or corpse campers

    and to be h onest, I'm sure the AI from the mobs in Aerrevan will be lack luster, as every other MMO... watching your back, the element of surprise and the competition with real people is what online gaming should always be about.. imo :D

     

    if you wanna experience a good rpg, I hear dragon age is great, I'm sure you could even start up a vent server and talk to people while playing the same game :D

    hahahahaha.  vinter +1

    @the naysayers:  Griefing as an end is futile, ignorant and demoralizing.  Griefing as a means to instigate clan warfare,  server unity and player interaction is not.  Learn to tell the difference and you may find whole new avenues of gaming become available.

    I just want to say I applied for Nox a long while back and left before being accepted because of shit liek this and attitudes like this. There are some great people in Nox and it's why I tried to leave on a positive note and to give a few pieces of "this is why I left" to the leaders. Also I just want to say Keep your +1's to your forum. They were stupid there and they are stupid here. 

    P.S. The newbies won't tell you it but they count all the +1's and -1's you give them and boy does it cause them to feel like outsiders. Not a good system for breeding friendships with people who are not on the in crowd. Just a heads up. So like last time good luck but knock off this stupid crap please.

    We arent griefers. I just wont kick people from the Guild because they choose to do it. We dont run Corpse Camping events, but I can tell you, the best way to start a fight is to mess with people. This is when they call in the troops.

     

    Why look for a fight, when you can bring one to you?

     

    It's simple gaming. For those that say you have played this and that, obviously you have stuck with the lighter side of things in those games. You gank, to inspire others Guildies to come fight for their people. This is how you get Guild vs Guild in World PvP. Deal with it.

     

    My post here wasnt meant for drama, it was meant to spread the word. There arent many RPrs left in the World. I havent even played the game yet, but based off of what the dev said to me, yeah, the game will fail. I will resurrect this post later when it does ;) To meet todays needs, you HAVE to meet the needs of all player types.

    Good point. Gankers and griefers almost always "justify" their behavior by claiming it adds "challenge" to a game.  When the reality is, it just makes it so that the Dev's have to intervene to protect their business model.  Modern western players have very little toleration for such antics. They also have many, many other games that do NOT tolerate ganking and/or griefing that they can spend their time and money on.

    In my earlier posts, I said I would come back when this game has failed. I only took a few of the posts that review this game.

    Game = Failed

    You cant promote a game of freedom and PvP and then not offer it. If you were to take everything that sucked in Mortal Online and everything that sucks in Xyson and meld them together, it would still be better than this game. :D
