    I gank lowbies for a good 5 hours per day, so yes, ganking still occurs.

    I'd imagine that ganking happens more, rather than less, considering CRZ...

    CRZ is hugely exaggerated. Most ppl still level by dungeons because its quick and lazy. I've leveled four toons from 1 -80+ in MoP so far and things are just as quiet as ever.

    I'm curious as to why people still get so angry over ganking and try to apply some psychological instability to it. I kill lower levels on a whim, i sometimes go to org when i am bored and start sniping lowbies. So what? Get over it and get on with your life.

    If you're more than 30 levels below a level 90 character you have literally NO way of escaping them outside of logging off. No, not even stealth.

    The gankers are pretty much the same type of people that like spamming "umadbro" and other e-flexxing. Worse part is, even some of the best PvP'ers out there are ganksters because they get off on griefing other players and proving their dominance on an online game.

    No wonder your avatar is Garrosh. "Great" minds think alike.

    Like they did with CRZ? I played on a PvE server and was suddenly ganked for two hours by some dude from a PvP server :P
    They'll likely make some mistakes again and merge PvE with PvP. I'll buy you a beer if I'm wrong

    Because players from pvp servers can circumvent the rules of the pve servers and gank at will people who are not pvp enabled.

    That hasn't been a problem for almost 10 months now. If you're still seeing PvP people as a PvEer, it's because someone in your CRZ group is pulling people into your realm pool.

    Longtime alliance player here who has recently switched to horde, and I must say, the amount of ganking AND camping I see by the alliaince far outstrips anything I ever saw while levelling as alliance. Gettign ganked by much higher level toons is goign to happen, thats a given. what I take umbrage at is those losers who either camp people 20+ levels lower than themselves, or those pathetic douches who sit in neutral towns and use exploits and bugs to camp people nd avoid combat with guards...you darkspear jackasses know who you are.

    On a side note, my best ganking story involves me in Winterspring. Pally (lvl 90) was ganking and camping, so I got my main and decided to give him a bit of a lesson. After 4 or 5 kills, he decided to roll to his FotM hunter and try to kill me. alas, he was just as terrible on his hunter as he was on his pally, and he continued to stain the ground with his life's blood. Lo and behold, he cried in general chat and some other 90's came to help him. A resto druid and a shadow priest showed up and tried to 3v1 me. Unfortunatley for them, my skill cap vastly exceeded theirs, and they provided me whi a good hour of entertainment when I was able to 3v1 them, sometimes 4 or 5v1'int them, as, at times, I would kill one of them and he would be ableto run back and rez before I killed the other 2. It was only when they called in a blood dk that they were able to 4v1 me, and yet, I was still able to kill 1 or 2 of them before I died.

    I honestly don't believe in killing people who are many levels lower than you. Sure, I will do it from time to time when I am bored, but I generally refrain from it. Now, ganking people who are close to the same level as me while I am levelling, this is something I live for. You don't want to die, don't roll on a pvp server and don't try to level in my zone!

    I think a large part of the ganking problem is that so many people don't understand ganking and world pvp. Far too many kids think it's a show of skill and a feat when they take their geared max level toon and run around killing lowbies. that's not pvp, that's just douchebaggery. Ganking,however, is when you have a toon thats close to the same level as the enemy and you take your weapon and introduce it to their various body parts - head/entrails/limbs, etc. This oftimes requires a modicum of skill, especially when attemting said feat on someoen who is a few levels higher than you. This is ganking. This is what pvp servers were meant to foster and encourage, not the 90 vs. lowbies that pervades the game nowdays.

    I levelled from 1-90 on Outland EU this week, Honestly the crz has made it so outland questing zones is nothing but ganking from other realms which is a pain, but as soon as I got to panda land I got ganked 3 times,
    Also my play times were all normal 6pm-11pm.
