    Default Why so much tension

    I enjoy pvping i spend a good amout of time in the lobster. I have noticed if you have mabar next to you guild name a good amout of ppl are extremly rude to you type nasty things to you in general chat its kind of childish. I am a very good pvper and very fair when i fight. Here is an example of how things work on this server i ask somone to duel he responds sure he jumps down fully buffed, using wellfed XI and a wounding of puncturing weapon. Come on man up and fight fair.So i ask hime to duel with no caster buffs and try not eating food from the tavern and his response is go f yourself you suck. Very imature 10 mins later i whooped him in a 1 on 1 after his caster buddies left and he was still using tavern food and the same weapon. I just dont understand the hostility and the thinking of some ppl

    Where does this anger come from?

    Who really cares?

    PVP is a naturally agressive quantity.

    Lots of people are rude in PvP, whether that anger is aimed at Mabarians or not. I see people insulting each other constantly, whether it's done as teasing, or done in anger.

    Not that I endorse people being asses to each other, but really, if you're gonna PvP, learn to expect rudeness, and be a little more thick-skinned about it.

    If it's that damn book of charts again, you're going down shorty.

    And since when do you have a character named NIKKI?

    Frankz I think this is prob a pvp thing more then an Argonnessen thing. Everyone Ive teamed has been nothing but nice. I even had one guy upgrade my sword on a new toon just before the merge just because he had it extra and its was better then what I was using. I've had PUGs by wands for my cleric then send me some extras the next day. And over all People just seem more nice then on Mabar.

    Some having buffs and eating before pvp isnt wrong you technically have access to all that too. So maybe he fell you were just trying to be a wuss about it. Though it was rude if you kick his butt and he's all buff more the bragging rights to you.

    food for thought

    I forget who it was that said it, but I don't claim credit: PvPing in the pit is not PvP... it's genking 101.

    Fair fights only occur in deathmatch arenas.

    Before the merge, I didn't see rudeness in Mabar pvp...Maybe the original Argo's just didn't have a sense of community?

    It's a tad difficult to have a sense of community in a sprawling metropolis

    But seriously, people talk trash in PvP. Learning to take it for face value is important.

    There was once a sense of community in PvP. I remeber about a year ago in the lobster you would have "regulars". We used this time to try out new things, equipment, enhancements, ect. When we werent doing that we screwed around with each other. Today, I see a lot of 10 on 1 fighting. Everytime you get into fighting someone there are a ton of players that attack you then jump back out of the pit. I would LOVE to respond to that but my account has been suspended twice already. I therefore try not to PvP for any extended period of time. I have NO problem fighting and dying in PvP, but it is not fun when its a bunch of people jumping you from behind over and over. If anyone ever wants to get into deathmatches let me know, they are a blast as it is usually among friends.

    Just because you didn't see it, doesn't mean it didn't happen. Lots of aggression happens through tells.

    There is plenty of community with the original Argos, and a bit of animosity with some as well. Just like any community, real or imaginary. Welcome to the jungle, baby.

    Well its pvp, what u hopes?, there is for ppl kill ppl, and in someway im feel that rudeness comes in hand with pvp mostly because u need a motive or reason why kill other players , so its more like a treatening way to get u in the battle , Too i dont see the point on fairness on pvp, it is a war, you dont go to drink tea, you go to defeat or be defeated, you go in with all you can do. Live or die, no place for manners in arena. Jump in and the carnage battle begins!! Let the monster inside you get out .
