PKing 4 Life :>

    • PKing 4 Life :>

      PKing is all that I'm about, I really don't care about anything else besides that.
      Duelling? meh.. "Fair"? fuck no.
      I believe in anything is fair in war, you gotta make sure you can get any advantage you can get over your enemies.
      And I'll kill anyone that comes across my path.. it don't matter if you're a top 10% PvPer or just a PvEr doing ur thing.. tbh, I really do take extra pleasure in killing non-pvpers.. Is there a difference between PKing and PvPing? I say there is and that's why I think PKing > PvPing. PKing is about killing but PvP doesn't necassarily have to be about killing, it's more about the challenge and honor.

      And I've been PKing since the early days starting with MUDs and moving on to UO and Tibia.
      For those that played Tibia, there are two types of PvPers.. one group are those that really powergame and farm the shit out of the game, join the biggest guilds and alliances and have massive ongoing wars.
      That's not what I like to do. What I do is stick to the mid-level area.. absolutely not higher than lvl 60.. make plenty of different characters and I PK people in dungeons, people that are hunting and that gives me much more pleasure than any other type of PvP. I've setup traps where me and a couple of friends all are using characters less than lvl 20 and have killed lvl 90+ players.

      All that PKing over like more than 15 years.. getting close to 20 years of my life has made me pretty sick when it comes to duelling as well which you would know if you played linkrealms or Salem (permadeath). I never declined a single duel and I won them all.. even in Salem I didn't fear fighting 1v2 (in a permadeath mmorpg!). However, just because I'm teh shit at duelling, it's still not what I'm about. I always customize my characters as much as possible for a hit n run style of combat suitable for PKing.

      Survival > Killing is my mindset btw.
      Even if I play some boring FPS like BF2 back in the day, I would priorityze a low death rate over a high kill count. Most people they just spawn, and lazy and carelessly run out in the middle of the open street and get killed because that's the mentality that mainstream games develop when there's no penalty for dying. I still stay true to my nature, skulking around the corners and edges and picking people off.

      Honor amoing thieves? It's something I consider, when you think about that people with a PKer mentality are a minority so if I come across people with this mentality and I'm shown respect, I will often show mercy but not always.

      I used to have a lot of funny screenshots but this will just have to do it for this thread: i.imgur.com/W7cliUs.jpg (it's from the salem forum)

      So, I'm just now getting started with Albion, hope it turns out to be what I'm expecting it to be. I read that stealth is possible so I'll probably make some kinda stealthy assassin and sneak around picking juicy targets off. That's the general plan I've got right now.

      I am an assassin in this game btw
      We'll see about cooperation later.
      I still need to figure out what kinda character I'm gonna develop and not really sure what PvP will be like yet.
      The stealth plan might get scrapped since that's not at all what I expected.. thinking now about either playing a dagger/bow/pyro character.. one of those.. hard to plan ahead when I don't know how all mechanics work like, which spells can get me out of a root.. gonna watch some vids before I log back in and see what I can learn from them.

      btw, if you wanna partner up later you should know I have low tolerance for people that are too far below my own skill level.
      If it turns out you are then I might still be convinced to take you under my wing but only if you do everything I say, no fooling around or arguing and shit.. and loot ofc goes to me by default unless I tell you that you can have something.

      That's all I've read and I've already decided I like you. Welcome to the community.
      Thanks man, I think you and I will get along fine.

      I also wanna say two more things.
      I've now decided what kinda character I'll be playing and it's going to be a a melee staff user.. I think that 8 sec stun looks just too good especially comboed together with that leather armor spell which creates that lightning aoe dot which does like 70 dmg twice a sec for an 8 sec duration.. it's like it's made for being used with a staff. And by the time that 8 sec stun is finished you're about to unleash that 3x stack which will cause another stun. And then, think about if I for example take Berindon with me, then whoever gets stunned is going to be dead before the stun wears off with both of us on him. Ofc, this is all just theory and I don't have any live experience yet but gotta start somewhere and I think it's a good plan to start out with.

      The other thing I wanted to do is add a quote from Raph Koster who was the lead designer of UO. It's a quote from a post mortem blog post he made and I really should of added the quote in my OP but better later than never right?

      I still believe that running servers themed around PvP or not is also a bit of a waste of time.
      The amount of wolves who want to play on a wolf-only server is way smaller than the total amount of wolves, and generally speaking, wolf-only servers are extremely underpopulated.

      Switches still suck. They damage immersion badly by requiring either the exclusion of or the fictional inchorence of all area-based effects; they do not handly many of the indirect forms of possible conflict (often fatal things, like blocking for example), leading to ways to get around the switch; they don't work very well as a way of mixing PvP and -PvP styles within one game because the grief players will just move on to alternate forms of causing grief while the PvPers will feel forced out of the game by all the restrictions.
      Well, keep chillin n killin yo :>

    • Okay, I think this will be the last update to my intro thread.

      I have done a lot of thinking about what kind of character customization as I've been learning more and more over last few days of playing.
      I've decided that the warbow playstyle is probably the best for me. It's really the kink of hit n run playstyle since it's all about staying as faw away from your enemies as possible while shooting magic arrows and poison arrows.

      I'm also ready for badlands. I am the type of player that does a lot of theorycrafting and planning. It's like I'm a sentient AI really. I can program myself on how to fight. Like, if this happens, then do that. And it's worked great for my in all past games I've played. And I think fearing zergs in badlands isn't necessary as long as you've got an armored horse.

      And because of that, I also don't plan on killing people that ride by me.. it can work if I root them blow my cooldowns just to get him off his mount and that's really just if he has so slow reaction time that he don't simply turn around the moment my name appears and blowing all my cds could put me in a vulnerable position too.

      My victims will be gatherers, people at chests, at hellgates or doing just some PvM somewhere else.. people that are already off their mounts.
      Only make my presence known when I can hear them engaged with monsters. Then start attacking their DPS/Healer from behind/flank and possibly lure more monsters on them. I've got assassin armor for invis.

      However, I'm not sure if I'll wait until release to start my murderours adventure or not.. sux that I need lvl 40 in bows for poison arrow.. doesn't make sense that they put it at lvl 40.. bows are a ranged class and aimed shot sux cos of casting time.. if I wanted casting time then I would play a frost mage or fire mage. With release so near, it feels borderline waste of time and effort to start grinding for lvl 40. And from what I've read on the forums, a lot of people have that same mindset so there's less activity in PvE because what's the point when the whipe is so near? So even if I get lvl 40 there might not be so many PvErs out there to kill.

      I also think that in large guild wars that wailing bow could be awesome especially if you're like 5 bow users just releasing it simultanously at the enemy zerg.

      And I think warbow could really dominate in a duel too if it wasn't for the small ring that you have to stay inside.. it makes kiting so ineffective when you have to LET your opponent catch up so you can start running towards the other side of the ring because you can't go any further the direction you were kiting him towards. Then there's also the other issue that duels start out in melee range which wouldn't be the case in world PvP.

      Maybe I'll try and find a party that wants to grind the t5 expedition together to get lvl 40 asap.. but doing it in random parties is so slow.. too many retards everywhere and waiting times are bad too. And I also don't have enough learning points to get to lvl 40.
