and that is the point I was getting at....even the "core" D1 & D2 teams don't have pking in either of the games they have worked on since leaving Blizzard (GuildWars & Hellgate:London). They have PvP, which is fine and does not affect me since I don't PvP. They can duel until they are blue in the face and I can get the enjoyment I want out of the game and both types of gamers are happy.
this isnt GW or hellgate london.. this is Diablo.. its how diablo ALWAYS was, and always should be.. if you want that type of game then you should be forced to play GW or hellgate. DIablo however, should remain how it always has been (even though it wont), and the people who dont liek that.. well then its simply not the game for them.
Why dont people understand this.. there are so many games out there that you should choose the best fit for you.... not actively try and change other games to their specifications.
Many that play in wow pvp servers still whine about getting ganked and griefed. It is fun at the beginning but when ur playing ur alt and lvl 70 guys gank in low level areas .. eh. Also you are gathering something important reagents and u see enemy do u really wanna fight him? What happens is when he ressurrects he will backstab u when you are low on mana or life when you are fighting some mobs. This leads to circle that u try to revenge again and after all that you realise that if u had not killed him in the first place you would have gotten a lot more of those reagents in the time you did the pointless griefing.
And yet, a large public outcry has arisen for a while now about griefing and PKing... lower levels complaining that Hillsbrad can never be leveled in due to the incessant amount of high levels looking for a fight.... or what about in zones where PKing is encouraged? Hellfire Penninsula much? Western Plaguelands? How many times must a character endure camping or griefing until it becomes unfair to them when they're new and its their first character? How long should they just buck up and take it, preventing them from participating in the end-game content that Blizzard's WoW devs oh-so-love? Tell me how a level 21 new player who finds themself on the wrong side of the road, camped for hours, deserves to get griefed just because it is available?
To easy, if anything your being prepared when you if you choose to can do the same damn thing when you hit 70. Life throws you curveballs it's up to you to decide how you react to it.
I mean I dunno man we all start out some where, we all have leveled, all have been ganked by one person or another whether we would admit it or not. I love PK and PvP and I'm not gonna lie I can't say I've always been passive everytime someone decided to run over my alt. You either suck it up, find some friends, join a god damn guild or play another character or something.
Stuff just doesn't always go the way you want it to, it's one of the knacks of playing online. Are you one of those people who complains about loot not dropping or what.
Just seems like to me all the Anti-PK crew are the rich kids and everything has to go their way. I CAN'T BE BOTHERED EVERYTHING HAS TO GO ACCORDING TO PLAN, EVERYTHING SHOULD BE EASY FOR ME. INSTEAD OF HAVING A PLAN B I'M SO SURE AN ARROGANT THAT EVERYTHING WILL GO MY WAY I WONT HAVE TO WORRY RIGHT.
I'm pretty happy the way D3 is coming so far, confident the story part and such will come together. I'm more worried about whether or not Blizzard will turn it up a notch on these HACKS/CHEATS/BOTS/SCAMMERS in D3, not necessarily the way it's done in WoW but similarly to their policing system that we don't have to deal with that crap anymore. Then there is pvp/pk which I enjoyed in both games as well, I hope it turns out the best and something it worked out.
