I had someone tell me we "pk" for respect. Personally I "pk" for scrolls and insurance and crafters get pk'd because it drives me crazy to hear that digging or lumberjack sound outside my Felucca Home. I consider all of Felucca my home as well.

Hmmm, question is, do you mean offensive PKing or defensive?

I've never, in 9 years attacked another player that didn't attack me first.
I only PK if I'm attacked first, then again I usually lose anyway :laugh:

So I'll pass on the poll.

I also pass on the poll per the post by Silverfoot.

I have also never attacked someone first. If attacked I am prepared to defend myself, but as a rule I would fight side by side anyone, including reds, before attacking them.

No reason, just no desire I suppose. I do enjoy the combat because it is of course unpredictable and not automatically controlled like PvM. Live and let live, I an not offended by attackers, and respect everyones righ to PK or not to PK. If I didn't want to be attacked, I would'nt go to Fel.

One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction.
Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

I am using the loose term of "player killing" because I thought PvP would have been interpreted as People versus Player. I should have added another category of For Defense only, but do to limitations in my privilages, I am unable to add to the poll. If its for defense only, please just add a reply. Its only an informative poll just to satisfy my curiosity. :)

I hope more folks stop by and speak to it, very interesting question.
Actually it's a poll I'd love to see duplicated over on Stratics, just to see if the poll reflects a difference in each forums members.

i pk for fun mostly...sometimes for scrolls or gold.
Mostly tho if/when I pk its because I see someone whom I don't like for whatever reason...or is in an enemy guild, and happens to be blue...

I dont see the reason I pvp up there. The reason I pvp is because pvm is just soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring and mundane to me. I like the excitement that my next attacker has a mind of its own. Not knowing what they will do next, or what they are capable of. That to me is excitement.

Not predictable, easy to kill, mindless monsters....

I'd have voted except I didn't see an option for revenge or for protecting people (the two main reasons I kill people unconsensually).

When I participated in this type of behavior looooong ago, I did it for the hell of it. There was no other real motivation. I would get bored, take my dread lord out, and lay grief around the land. Killed everything in sight, didn't matter who you were, or what you were doing, you died. The only way you were saved is if you were already killed by us, or if somoene knew you. Otherwise you were killed. Sometimes I would loot you(only if you had something I wanted), other times I'd just leave whatever you had and moved on. However, my sole motivation at the time, was to lay chaos on the land. Then that too, got boring, and I moved on, lol.

I PK because its my passage with my guild. I used to be with a spawn guild, and got PK'd all the time. Now I'm with a raiding guild. Its easier to raid than it is to defend. 3 raiders can take out a party of 8-10 spawners, simply because of character setup and the fact that they have to defend 2 things. They are defending themselves and the spawn, we just defend ourselves. However I do remember getting raided once, we all left, ressed up and went back. 4 of us in the star room, 4 at hoppers bog. We got 11 out of the 12 scrolls back off the guild. We ate them on capture to prevent them being reposessed. Think it annoyed them a lot. But as a whole, PvM is repetative. PvP is fun. They have brains, makes them unpredictable. I love going through Fel with 2 other guys simply cleaning up. Paralyze house hiders and kill 'em. Cos we hate them. our guild has banned gate houses. :) The insurance you get off a Dexxer is cool..............:grin:

I would try to be a PK but I have no house in Fel. Is there such a thing as a PK blue? I may fall in that category or what other people mentioned about defending themselves.

pking is just fun

uo for me is almost like a fps...the thrill of the kill is simply much more fun and less boring than hunting monsters.
