    I just think people who mindlessly attacks other players for no reason are a bit of slow in the head or tries to compensate for something.

    I play on pve server, i consider pvp in wow a minigame and i consider world pvp even less, whats the point on doing it? It doesn't effect the story, it doesn't effect the one you kill, it's doesn't effect your character.
    The only pvp that i consider worth doing is the eve online kind of pvp where you inflict a real "monetary" damage to your opponent, where you can gain territories, where there is a real gain and loss in doing it and winning.
    How about we let the parenting of kids to... their parents? No, seriously, World of Warcraft is a videogame. Gaming it's supposed to be a fun activity (if you have that fun through challenges, social interactions, etc is completely up to you). Not some kind of "School of Hard Knocks about the Real World".

    ye well i hardly ever do any pvp anymore but i used to gank a lot. like many people here i would never attack a lowbie (unless i was lowbie myself), because that's just not fun for me. even when i was invading crossroads i wouldn't kill flagged lowbies unless they cc'ed me when max levels came. now with that said, everything else was fair game: you fight a mob? tough luck. drinking/eating? shit happens.

    you rolled on pvp server you're basically carrying a sign 'please gank me' as far as i'm concerned.

    Other than that, if its red its dead. If im trashing someone I usually let them go about their business after a few deaths.
    Unless it a PvP Server & The Horde are doing a World Boss than it is fine I would say. Remember the Nightmare Dragons, if you were on a PvP server you have a group of Bodyguards sometimes & switch off players to kill the enemy players than back on the dragon if successful.

    I'm still convinced that whoever came up with the idea of cross-realms must be genuinely challenged.

    Griefing isn't pvp. It used to be in Vanilla, when there were only 3 BGs and long queues. But now you have arenas etc, so there is no point to "world pvp".

    I think it's weird that folks in PvP gear are the easiest ones to kill.

    sometimes its funny when you gank some group or help ganked players of your faction.

    over 3+vs3+ world pvp is rly cool

    It's the reason I play Warcraft. It's a world of brutality and vengeance. The little guy that gets ganked will grow into a vengeful, spiteful PVPer, and the cycle continues.

    As it should.

    World pvp has always been reserved for jerks and those who are trying to become even bigger jerks. I've ganked someone once in my wow life, and that was in january 2005. That poor tauren shaman never saw me coming. I just don't see wtf is the point of some lvl90 going around killing lowbies, unless they are trying to recover from some real life trauma. Even if the ganker isn't higher level (they usually are), the ganker always has an unfair advantage.

    And I play this game for arenas. World pvp is for d-bags unless you are raiding a main city.

    I loved world PvP, I think that was my fondest memory of WoW. But in my opinion, Blizzard created a divide between PvP and PvE that is now too large. Most players are one or the other, so in world PvP, regardless of your gear, you're facing somebody that's not good at PvP, or is very competitive and geared specifically for it.

    Plus, there's just no benefit to world PvP anymore. With queues netting you 200x the honor gain, and conquest points being exclusive to them.

    And then there's the inflation of skills in WoW, mainly CC.

    Just me though. Think I've been softened by several years of PvE so my opinion may not be worth much.

    The point of world PvP is that it's unplanned and unexpected. There's not nearly as much thrill in queuing for BGs or arena as there is in having improvised encounters out in the world, regardless of what level they are. I'm a nice guy, I'm intelligent, and I'm good at the game, so all the general excuses people come up with don't apply at all. They're just that, excuses. World PvP is awesome, and if someone can't handle it, they shouldn't be on a PvP server.

    On the contrary, I'd say people who play a war game and choose to be on a server where it's possible to attack enemy players, then complain about it when it happens, are the ones that are slow in the head.

    Why am I not surprised? Let me guess, you're the kind of person whose first instinct upon seeing a PVP post s/he doesn't agree with, goes and inspects the poster's Arena rating. Typical. Arena player who can't handle world PVP because it's not perfectly tailored around your 2v2, 3v3, 5v5 needs.

    P.S: One of the first ever WoW trailers (way back from beta) featured players fighting in Westfall and Goldshire in...you guessed it...world PVP. Congratulations on calling the original core WoW playerbase and WoW developers douche bags.

    Ganking/WPvP/whateveryouwannacallit, is the part of the game I hate the most. (Except gnomes.)
    I avoid it as much as possible but if someone attacks me I tend to fight back.


    The only expection is gnomes. I always kill gnomes.

    Oh a "pvp server deal with it" response ofcourse, how am I not surprised thats your only retort when I question people who
    attack other players for no reason and kills lowbie questgivers hours on hours on end with their /spit /rude emotes macroed to every ability.

    PvP =/= Being a oxymoron douchebag to every player around you "just because".
    If thats the behaviour you endorse, then I think as the poster above me you're better off with CoD or similar.

    PvP servers were designed specifically for that in mind. You can whine all you want, it's a fact. And it's not for "no reason." It's a multiplayer game, and they're my enemies in said game. To be fair though, I'll agree emote spammers are annoying.

    Yes, it's an MMO...with two enemy factions, and server types built for people who want to fight players of the enemy faction. It's not being an antisocial jerk to kill your enemies (which you can't talk to anyway) in a multiplayer game.

    World PvP quickly became a joke when PvE gear greatly eclipsed PvP gear for World PvP. Factor in the buffs from the timeless isle and any PvP geared player will be shit on by any 540+ PvE scrub. On my PvP geared ILvL 509 Resto Druid I was blown up by a 560 ILvL back-peddling Huntard with the island buffs in 5 seconds. That makes sense.
