    You are like those kids with a magnifying glass killing ants.
    I always did find that entertaining.
    Maybe because you don't have the skillz to kill someone of your level ;p hihi
    And again why I do it. You know nothing about me except the fact that I gank lowbies, so you automatically resort to insults. Ganking is sometimes akin to trolling, and you're enabling it.

    Sorry, in my mind i was thinking "Camping" not just "killing" a lowbie.
    If i kill a lowbie is just like...one time just for the sake of the "pvp server" mentality.
    But gives me absolutely no pride and i stop immediately.

    To keep whatever small sense of immersion that is left in this game intact.

    I am Horde, You see an Alliance and you kill them. That's the game, that's the story. That's about the only immersion left in WoW and people will cling to it forever, hopefully.

    I'm an American and when I see an Iranian I kill them.....

    Oh wait, no I don't. That isn't how it works.

    90's one shotting unsuspecting lowbies? Part of the game.

    90's killing unsuspecting other 90's via the COA? Terrorism, totally unfair, bliz plz fix.

    I played on a PvP realm from Vanilla til the start of Cata, at which point with them having more and more of the funneled daily area's like Tol Barad I just the heck with it ( mainly because our server had slid to 80% Horde and as Alliance it was nearly impossible to get anything done).

    Really gankers have always broken down into a couple of categories, the ones that kill someone and move on, the ones that camp a spot for days on end because they suck and its the only players they can kill, those that go to a known location to get people involved in PvP and those that have something just slightly wrong with them and enjoy making someone else miserable.

    The first and third type type most people don't take issue with, its part of the game and frankly can lead to some fun for both sides. The second and fourth type are generally the ones doing most of the camping you see out in the world, and frankly even most of the those are just people that suck and are frustrated.

    I've swooped down and killed a lowbie myself over the years, like I said its part of the game, you shrug it off and keep going. I will admit that I miss the crappy gankers that sit around Redridge or Duskwood all day because they can't kill anything else. I used to spend my mornings on my Rogue roaming around killing these people time after time, sometimes I would bring a lowbie friend out to set them up, they always took the bait they just couldn't stop themselves. Not sure why though but it doesn't matter how many times you kill them they can't stop, its like a sad heroine addict. Usually though I would get bored of it long before they did, even as max level character I can only kill them so many times before I start feeling bad for them.

    Just from my past experience, 80% are the people that stink and can't kill anything else, 10% are just trying to drum up PvP and the other 10% are basically just trolls.

    what is the charm of flying circles around shrine until a raid forms?

    Of course not. We are not at war with the country of Iran.

    Then there is also a very huge difference in the real world civilization and the sort of Stone age that Azeroth is.

    If said lowbie is in Horde territory, or in Elwynn, I just like to remind them that the world isn't safe. I never camp, unless it's someone my level. Camping lowbies is just lame.

    The Horde and Alliance aren't at war either, and haven't been for the entirety of WoW. MoP is the closest we came, but instead of doing that Blizzard made the Horde the Alliance went to war with NPC only and all of the Horde players were, without choice, put into the rebel group which was not at war with the Alliance.


    If you want to go back to Medieval stuff, an Englishman didn't simply kill a Frenchman for being a Frenchman during the Hundred Years War either.

    Lvl 10s can't fly circles around the shrine. Not sure how you thought that question was relevant... or clever.

    Revenge is a bitch. Only do it because when i was a lowbie i was constantly ganked. I chose to be on a PvP server but when i was killed several times in a row by one person, it'd piss me off a little bit. However, i had no problem with be killed hence why i chose a PvP server. I just give them a taste of what happened to me at a lower level. Boy oh boy, payback is always great!

    I, for example, feel the urge to help lowbies, especially from the opposite faction. For example, I spotted a Warscout and there was a random lvl 87 horde (I'm ally) nearby. I /waved and /pointed at Warscout and made couple of other gestures until he understood that he needed to tag the mob and I finished it off for him. I always help lowbies with rares if i see they are in trouble. Guess I hope that encourages them to be kind aswell, although that hope lays on a thin ice ^^

    It's only payback if you do it to the same person. If it is someone new, it is nothing more than perpetuating the cycle of abuse and calling it revenge. Then again, you rolled on a PvP server, so my words will likely fall on deaf ears.

    You could also say that and i understand your reasoning. I mean it's just payback in a way to the opposing faction that ganked me. That sounds much better. I got tired of being ganked by horde so once i hit 90 and got pretty damn geared i was like lets take a stroll down memory lane. Started ganking left and right. I mean it is called World of WARcraft for a reason xD

    ^^ This. I've done similar 'good deeds' for opposing faction before, it feels a LOT better than ganking someone just because you can.

    Because they are there - and I can. =) I don't go out of my way to gank people. But if I'm flying around valley mining and I see an alliance. He's going to die. Level 85 or lv 90. ^_^b

    I like to cc lowbies and unequip my weapons and beat them to death with my fists.
