Default Why do y'all like the Red Server?

I kind of curious why anyone likes the Red Server. The server would suggest that it's not very popular, but there are some very vocal proponents here in the forums. I suspect some of these people no longer actually play and are only forum trolls at this point, but still I find it quite interesting. PVP is not my thing. I don't like getting ganked/griefed by high level ultra geared players with nothing better to do, but bully people off of their server. Just curious what you people find, so enticing about it? I would rather cooperate with people and form bonds together taking down high level NPCs. It's a lot more fun to me than ganking or getting ganked by other people. Posting a poll, but feel free to post a open answer.

Better banter, better sportsmanship.

Being able to stand up for others.

Mutual protection.

Id say take why you like EQ over wow, and red is like that to EQ to me.

It just makes so many insane parts of this game more viable and necessary to succeed.

on item loot no drop becomes a stat

all the resists are just so much more important, thats like 5 new stats to play from 1-60

strange weapons that are of no value on blue are of huge valule on red

and all of that, community is like way more important because gang violence.

Ya but when you win on red it just means you were willing to come back and keep fighting longer than the loser. The best red player probably has a strategy to not leave the pc for months. If you kill him he just come back for more and wont you succeed. At least this is my xp on red
