When is it OK to PK?

57 posts in this topic

Posted

The only time I choose to PK is when people are constantly interfering with my grinding route. I don't PK on first encounter, or second, or even third. I only do so when it's become clear that they are completely ignoring the fact that they came into someone else's spot. But here is the thing: it's pretty aweful. 90% of the time attacking a person doesn't make them fight back, they just stop on their tracks and stare at me while I'm hacking and slashing at them. I stop. And I start feeling bad like I've just violated some innocent being. And then I walk away ashamed. So yeah, when is it OK to kill another player? It makes me angry that they just take whatever the ----- they wanna take and that's why I PK. But more often than not I end up feeling it wasn't warranted.

Keep grindin them gears out, soon they wont just stare, they will die, and then make you red. and then you will be upset :c

They stop because they want you to lose karma and go red.

They aren't interested in playing "fairly" - they're trolling.

Ask them to leave your mobs alone? If they ignore or said no pk them. Its that simple.

imo killing another player is very rarely bad manners. if it is a problem, the problem should be addressed through game mechanics, not some unwritten code of video game player ethics.

as far as that guilty conscience goes, zeroisk has a good point. rather than attacking them out of the blue, communicate your intentions, and if they still do not take a hint... attacking them is really your only recourse

Also what lvl are you? No one at 55+ will just stand there and die willingly. You lose like 2 hours of xp.

I don't PK much, but that's because if people walk into my grind area they've always just invited me to group. Couple days ago a guy did what you just described though. He came to my spot, killed some stuff, left. Came back and seemed like he wanted to compete with me to reach the next spot. 

Then I killed him. I can say with some certainty that he was dead before he realized it was happening. He didn't come back.

Anyway, far as I'm concerned it's ok as soon as they decide to follow you around for more than one rotation of mobs. They'll probably hate you forever though if they weren't trolling and just didn't understand the way these things work. So, maybe you should ask them to leave before forcibly removing them.

You should feel ashamed. That person has just as much of a right to be there as you.

I don't walk into someone else's spot and I don't go for the mobs in their way. All the other posters made me feel better so I choose to take your comment for trolling.

does impaling someone on a pike count as communication?

idk, maybe send a group request first? Then you can see what their true motives are?

Talking about leveling in this case, not endgame farming.

Well if somebody try to kill somebody in this game he know that he have big gear advantage or he play sorc. If you fight back dude might think that he know how to play. Better just die and run back until he runs out of karma. Op is probably one of this dudes who thinks that all hexe sanctuary node mobs belongs to him. :)

I got pk'd for the most trivial things. You know a MMO is in a bad way when people overreact and become aggressive over someone just approaching. This game will end well.

I really wish that was my experience, but in my case people don't seem to be interested in grouping at all. If I wanna be fully honest about my feelings here, the vast majority of people act retarded, they don't group, don't talk, don't even say hi back.

Actions/presence counts as communication.

Doing dungeons/fractals in GW2, by casting a skill at someone or jumping up and down in a spot and running back and forth, I could communicate all that was necessary to complete the content in a reasonable amount of time (10~15 minutes) when partied with players who did not speak my language. :3

It's a game. Play it however you want within the scope of the rules. Just own up to the consequences like retaliation if it happens. PK anyone you want for whatever reason or don't even bother with PK. Both are valid choices in the game environment, along with everything in between.
