Question

Does this thread make sense from a bluebie perspective? Bc I kill players when I feel like it, which is frequently. And Iíve murdered no people irl yet but maybe thatís coming soon.

Obviously when someone joins a PVP server they expect it to be complete and utter anarchy with no rules.

An example of taking it too far in my opinion would be; falsely befriending someone and gaining his/her trust over the course of months and years, and then obtaining their password through deception and then stealing all of their items and deleting their characters for the LULs. That to me seems like you have gone beyond reasonable competition and made being a piece of shit your modus operandi.

maybe you need to invent a morality scale for in-game behavior and then one for irl behavior. simple questionnaire sorta thing. you got subjectivity on subjectivity on subjectivity here and that's not a great basis for much at all.

That's a strangely apt description of American foreign policy

When it comes to behavior towards other players in MMO’s I try to be courteous. In WoW on a pvp server I wouldn’t grief or gank noobs. I preferred as fair of a fight as I could get. This is why when battlegrounds came around I focused mostly on dominating those (and later arena) because world pvp fights are high-impossible to be fair to both sides in terms of situation and numbers

Maybe my question was more pointed towards how you would treat actual players in a multiplayer setting rather than NPCs. That being said, the thought of going into a school full of NPC children and gunning them down still seems sadistic. Yes I know they aren’t real, but that doesn’t change the fact that you are willingly doing this for enjoyment.

Back when Kunark was first released on live, I was strolling through the Dreadlands on my halfling Druid, when I came upon a fallen Giant. Upon inspection, I noticed there was a Treeweave tunic on him, so I happily took it. Not 3 minutes had passed and I was on my way, when a panicked shout came across my screen. “Please whoever took the Treeweave please give it back, that was intended for my alt”. I remained silent and kept the tunic for myself. Did I feel guilty about it? Not really. Was it theft? Maybe, hard to say.

Now that i am 22 years older, I probably would have given it back. I just feel like it’s the right thing to do, but back then it wasnt happening.
There is no difference between the simulation and you.

I treat everyone the same. Npcs. Pcs. If I can be friends we can become friends in game. And I feel horrible killing the blackburrow gnolls for exp. Although I have done it. Felt guilty. Gone on a rampage in qeynos and surfall.

Honestly. There should be more diplomatic options and quests. Like the honeyymeads for Tumpy. And Farens tackle box. And red wine for neriak. Bandages for halflings. Muffins for the elfs.. etc... and they aught to be more involved getting faction in Runnyeye to buy ingredients and do tradeskills etc and take us up to lvl 50-60.

Eventually finishing up with bringing presents for the Lady Vox. Lord Nagefen. And fire and ice giants.

I'm like this irl to.

No I haven't killed any Hobbits irl. There's no reroll for fucking up hobbit faction. Like I said tho I feel empathy for the gnolls.
