Every time I See threads like this, I vow to kill 20 players each when I get home.

You're your own doing form PK for me.

Most people who post this kind of nonsense are either getting PvP'd at school or at work :)

Since there is no unsolicited deaths having chosen to buy and play a game with open world PvP, zero.

Whatever deaths I had were fully solicited, as were the kills.

I'm curious to learn how people are actually affected by the open world PvP in this game.  Personally I've been killed twice while leveling from 45 to 50 and once after 50.  This seems like an awfully low level of PvP compared to how much I've been seeing posted on the forums concerning the anti-PvP and pro-PvP I've been seeing.  So the poll is pretty simple.  Mostly I am curious about the players who are PK'd when they are just out grinding or otherwise minding their own business.  And please feel free to add your PvP stories below whether they turned out to be good or bad experiences.

I had a guy virtually 1-shot me 30 times in a row the other night as I was trying to finish my first Black Spirit daily quest so I could go to bed a day or so after hitting 50. He just started randomly attacking me right after I arrived at the mansha's for the quest (I assume he was farming for an ogre ring).

I'd pop an Elion's Tear and run and he'd just kept following me killing me over and over. An hour later I made it back to town after he said whispered me saying he'd leave me alone and started heading back to Heidel when he ganked me off my horse again. GG

It is what it is, it took $15 for me to realize how absurd the gear/level gap in this game is and how you're pretty helpless to stop random people from *trying* to troll you. 

Beyond that I had another play try to PK me while I was grinding who was similarly geared and I fought him to a standstill until he realized he couldn't kill me and ran away.

That's about the extent of my PvP at this point.

I'm 53 and I haven't been killed by many players. I've never felt the need to flag up on anyone yet, I'm pretty good at watching the map and moving away quickly when a white square comes near me

Iirc, I've only been attacked twice - only one of those ended in my death.
Once was from some cheeky little sh*t who came up to a friend and I while we were semi-afk autopathing to Altinova - they attacked us with a horse skill (one of the chops or kicks) and tried to run off. He didn't find it nearly as funny when I insta-cast Dream of Doom, killed his horse and downed him shortly after.
Second was from a ranger while farming skeletons. They got too close, grabbed some of my mobs, thus I lobbed a warning DoD into their mobs. So they waited until I'd started my next pull, killed me, and then ran like a little b*tch when I spawned at the node less than twenty seconds away from the grind spot, flagged and ran at them.

If you stay away from the major channels (Velia 01, Balenos 01 and the like) then you're usually pretty safe, especially if you've got any pieces of +15. Then the people you find on the lower channels who take pot shots at you crumble pretty quickly when you turn on them.

It would be interesting if you added NA or EU to the poll. Most mother Theresa comments I see come from NA and the opposite. I play in Europe and get a minimum of 1 a day. Mostly in places of interest like the skeleton zone, abandoned monastery, helm, and those places where you need to go every day to get dailies done. I've only managed to survive 1 attack xD sorc couldn't kill my undergeared warrior for a second attempt and called a hunter friend. Gave me time to run to Behr. Playing in group didn't help either. We lost 3 - 1 to sum ----- who wanted the calpheon temple elites for herself. Went through us like a knife through butter. 

A bit on and off topic. I have seen wagons that I can hit, and wagons I can't hit. I thought the wagons I could hit belonged to red named players. But the last wagon I was releasing my stress on turned out to belong to a nice and understanding blue named girl. SO....anyone knows how that works?

Maybe your poll should ask how often ppl where attacked. it would sound more accurate ( since you can still run away.. + pot spam.. etc )

 

Wasnt they supposed to remove the escape command to only be able to use the one in the menu ?

people mcro it.

5-10 times but they have all been when fishing in some of the further out islands. Usually leave my armor and weapons in storage so nothing much I can do about it. I just just keep returning to the fishing spot until the person gets bored of killing me and swims off.

I haven't been killed unfairly by a Flagged up player yet... all of my deaths are because my guild is always at the Declaration Cap  (not even lying)

 

I've Always been warned to leave if I accidentally wander into a super-Geared Bnat-Tier player's personal space

Only a couple total. I've instigated many more but those I don't count since it was my fault the fights occurred.

 

I think a lot of the people that are complaining are exaggerating. But most of the time, those people that will complain will also be the same people that think getting PK'd one time is too many and unacceptable.

Had exactly 2 deaths due to unsolicited pvp. Both times I may have deserved it because I encroached on a guild grinding spot. Been attacked unsolicited a few more times but as a war I just turtled until they gave up because I knew I couldn't do enough dmg solo to kill them.

that's strange if its still possible;

 

But that wasnt my point tho.

 

That poll show nothing. It should have asked how many time you were attacked. Since with spam pot / run away guess you can avoid many fight tho.

How many times have I been killed for absolutely no reason?

ZERO

 

How many times have I been flagged up on for invading a groups leveling area?

Multiple times.  Which is perfectly fine by me.

Once when I was afk. But mostly if I mind my own business nobody attacks me, even when in guildwar. Maybe they know im a worthless opponent since I suck at PvP :P

@ OP Post 50, you will most likely discover that people mature and realize that group grinding is better for xp and protection and there is typically less ganking and generally less salt when being ganked.

Its slowly becoming common sense that you may have to compete for your right to the grind spot. If you haven't already, you will have to start killing too.

Only one. Any other PvP related death was due to GvG.

No Death so far, got attacked once during a GvG while grinding but we couldn't kill each other (I'm a DP Warrior, opponent was a Valk), so maybe I'm lucky :)
