    Default "You aren't an honorable PvPer!"

    I always get a good laugh when someone accuses me of lacking honor after killing them on a PvP server.

    The concept of "honorable pvp" was invented in MMOs when carebears decided to venture off the blubie servers and try to play with the big dogs on PvP servers. Unfortunately, the ganking and world PvP, that has ALWAYS been associated with PvP servers, was too much for the carebears, so they began complaining in forums that no one has honor. In current MMOs, carebears continue joining PvP servers because they want the "excitement" of world PvP, but they only want that world PvP when it best suits them. If the PvP is inconvenient for that carebear, then it all of a suddent becomes "dishonorable".

    It is a PvP server. You can role play "honorable character" if you want, but for old school PvPers, Red Is Dead - "honor" means nothing. We play on PvP servers to kill the opposing team, regardless of the situation.

    I don't care what level you are. I don't care if you are fighting a mob. I don't care if you are twenty steps away from finishing a 10 minute escort quest. If your name is red, then I will kill you, or I will die trying. And I will be happy about it, because I am a PvPer, and this is a PvP server.

    If you want to avoid inconvenient world PvP, and only want to engage in "honorable" pvp, then you might have a more enjoyable time playing on a carebear server and dueling each other.

    Just sayin'.

    Did I miss a point somewhere?

    Edit: I didn't have the option to roll on any "carebear servers"

    My options were:
    • PvP
    • PvE
    • PvP RP
    • PvE RP

    This isn't about PvP. It's about carebears, and the origins of "honor" in MMOs. It belongs in the General Forum.

    You are 100% right, because ganking is not PvP. Ganking is killing someone who has no chance at defending themselves. PvP is fighting other people because you want a challenge. Go ahead and call me a carebear to try and discredit my opinion though, I know it's coming.

    The thing that cracks me up about this thread is that I started PvPing in UO where "honor" was making sure to divide the loot among you and your 5 dread lord buddies after a long hard day of ganking noobs right outside the west gate of Trinsic.

    Edit: Now I don't see the point...as open world pvp has become soooo boring in new games that I just roll PvE and focus on what's fun.

    What's wrong, carebear? Did someone gank you one too many times?
