    Not technically true. I shot 4 people that night and sent the entire fishing party into the ocean with gust. I didnt kill though, as I am not a murderer ;)

    No one said it isn't cowardly, but morals are for the virtuous, and dont apply to all. :D The anti virtues of the shadowlords are "Falsehood, Hatred and Cowardice"

    I know, it is really nice to have a discussion. I think everyone brought something to the table here. These things need to be talked about and hashed out now instead of later. :)

    Not only that, I want the total opposite. Give me the option to force each pvp player on my lot in pve. I hate nothing more when people starting killing each other during an event. I know you guys have fun doing it, but others are annoyed by it.

    I have no problem with this but only in a pve zone. Then you could temp unflag everyone on the lot. I have purposed this with POT's that would want this in the past. I want it to be fair on both sides, but we cannot have our cake and eat it too. (Meaning you cant be one and have the other also)

    Sure only in PVE zones. PVP should have all freedom in their zones what means also no lot restrictions. PVP zones should be a zone where all kinds of pvper can live, even griefers. I accept those zones as they are. My biggest wish would be a sports mode which allows the use of all skills that don't do damage. Would solve all problems.

    Well, not quite all, Group PvP tournaments could still be problematic, especially for multiple teams fighting each other but not wishing to be attacked by third party...

    Well, guards can hopefully prevent people from killing someone, but I am not quite sure they will be able to prevent the first strike... We shall se how the game mechanics evolve.

    Create a Option that the opposing group leaders can request to declare pvp against each other. If the group leaders accept it, pvp between groups is activated.
    Very elegant way to solve. Giving your group Events the Option to be not depending on the PvP Zone.

    Will create a thread suggesting this. I like the idea.

    Guards can never really win when there are no consequences to attacking to begin with, as attackers can harrass them unto doomsday if there is no consequence to such action. I suppose that is where "PK" status came from, one attempt to bring some measure of consequence to limit otherwise unregulated constant attacks upon would-be defenders or gathers who have no real hope of any kind of "victory" against constant attacks recurring in steady stream from some spawn point ("What - thought you'd killed me, or fended me off from stealing your goodies or wrecking your parade? Think again, I am returned for the umpteenth time, harrrr!")

    If there are consequences or limits imposed you can have victory conditions for various sides though, in theory.

    the average PK enjoys killing people over and over again. if that happens to them, they usualy just go home because its no fun anymore.

    The average PK on SotA goes doing PVP outnumbered and outleveled....against the average White Knight that never fight alone 1vs1 even if he is 80+ level avatar (and got that levels using bugs) and perfect gear and also use bugs and insult the PK in chat because he is truth and the light...

    To fight the White Knight 1vs1 the PK have to ask in a very condescending manner for a duel...that will be refused because the White Knight does not do PVP because, he says, it is bugged....than as soon he can outnumber you he will do PVP very excited tring to use bug to kill you....and failing...

    Guards are not necessarily white knights.

    Perhaps when one creates an event, the event leader could toggle "check weapons" and everyone crossing a predefined event boundary would be relieved of all their weapons. When the player recrosses the boundary, he/she regains their weapons, as well as when the event ends.
    Perhaps an option to have one or two NPCs stand/sit at the door/gate/entrance checking peoples weapons as they arrive.
