CvPB gotta love it.
(controlled version of player babying)
Folks actually defend this !@#$. Its a sign that they don't know how amazing it is to feel fear/exhilaration/intensity of knowing you can be killed at any time. This isn't griefing, this is what Pvp is all about.
Try out wotmud.org if you want to know what real pk (pvp) is about.
And you can still do/feel this... You can enter the pvp dueling area for it, and eventually the arena. The only thing they have stopped you from doing is fighting people that don't want to fight at the moment and are questing and such. Getting attacked while you are trying to farm or whatever is not exciting, it is just annoying. The only people who like it are the ones that are griefing and getting a little chuckle out of annoying other people.
Mind you, I love PVP. Griefing is not PVP. Griefing is just fancy trolling. Now all you trolls can QQ.
Also, open world PVP is awesome...in other games. In Diablo open PVP=griefing; and griefing is for weak trolls.
I must admit, though, that having a second area for pvp, that is large enough that you have to actually hunt each other down, would be cool. Cooler if we could have more than 4 people in the game.
