Glad we agree there. Might there hang out some frustration about PvP at all atm? - couldn´t blame you.
I ride like half an hour to find some solo creeps, what i find, if any, are questers which i mostly let go away if they don´t attack me while i watch them. At the end I get zerged by the creep raid(s). Guess the same point of view is from saurons side.
how many 1vs1 did we have since you started playin your Reaver frequently? I would guess more then 100, could be wrong though. And i would say that most (<--most) of them went out very fair. Am still holding on the spar rules if we jump for a 1vs1. RvRs got some nice heals now and also they got a headstart of like 6-10k morale compared to my guard (depends if buffed and which jewels i have choosen). Anyways.
Past week i was watching some 1vs1 from others as i just passed on horseback. Think only 1 came to a fair ending, the rest been zerged by the bypassing creep raid, jumped by a wargpack, etc.
Am always fancy some challenge.
Other then raiding there are only our late night fellowship/small raid fights against blindings left.
./gets some feta too
Dear lord Sauron give us strenght to fight solo once again, operation reaverdile is in dire need.
Wargs are just useless...
Go Nurt:-) gz boys and girls.
Not that important of a message, but I'd like to tell about one event, that was positively surprising to me.
There were some big fights somewhere in the Moors. I was solo and needed to stop in the wood between lug gy and Tol and go afk for a while (although I could see my screen and saw what's happening). I didn't hide and was aware that any creep passing by may kill me and I couldn't complain about it.
And I saw a warg (blue rank afaik) who engaged. He saw that I was not moving, he danced around me for a little bit. He might be sure that I'm afk at that moment and safely kill me, but instead he went his way and disappeared in stealth.
Not a big event and even I'm not sure about motives of that warg, but from my (I admit not long) experience such behaviour of leaving an apparently afk opponent is not common. Especially when I remember being killed afk in Ost by Dire or even more wargs.
Grouped behaviour is often different than solo behaviour, when people will sometimes adhere to personal rules, and it's a good way to see someone's character.

Personally, if I know for sure I'll kill someone effortlessly I'll let them go on their business (unless they attack me), I never call out solo players (a lot of people do) and won't run or hug npcs if it's a 1v1, unless they're some tanking geared warden who I'll just ignore.
It all goes back to treating people like you'd want to be treated and not letting your behaviour be dictated by someone else's.

Ja niin lähti kaunis defileri, mutta vieläkin
kun Miniville yksin tallustaa,
hän miettii miksi toinen täällä valarin lapsi on
ja toinen Sauronia rakastaa.

Im sure his kin will have him hung drawn and quartered because of the opinions of someone on the internet.

With Janissaryy in 2nd spot on Eldar's daily stats - saw him in his clubbing spot not far outside grams again, so called in tribemates and killed him. I haven't seen Eluneara clubbing anywhere, but then again, don't actually remember seeing Eluneara ever in the 'moors, so the big gain in renown is definitely suspiscious though it could be explained by an error in the stats somewhere along the way which has now been corrected.

I would ask all freeps to not help these cheats. These people make a mockery of everyone who grinds out their rank the hard way. Don't heal them, don't rez them and most of all, don't accept them into a group. Make them aware they are not welcome. (And yes, we would do the same thing creepside - certainly those of us in Angbands).
And to re-iterate, Janissaryy is in Stormriders kin and Eluneara in Blades of Anarion, it is a poor reflection on these kins and honest members in them. My apologies in advance if there is a genuine reason for Eluneara's big renown gain, but no such apology for Janissaryy as I have caught you in the act already...
While the renown seems very fishy on Eluneara I did not see myself, nor have I seen any mentioning on him/her clubbing. However that amount of renown reflecting to the action of yesterday is way out of the numbers one would get. On top of that I did not see this chimp around anywhere on any moment yesterday.
With reference to clubbing / rank farming, Turbine is shifting from 'its not against the rules' to looking how to address it, so there might be some hope.

I tried to add both Janissaryy's and Eluneara's creeps to my friends list and it appears that Eluneara's creep (Oldschoolpvp r0 rvr) Has been deleted. Janissaryy's reaver however was last online 18/06 at 9:32 pm in Coldfells.
Clubbing is a habit, a clubber comes back to club some more, and more.
Same pleasure you get from mass streamrolling & raidzerg apparently.

Great action last night guys! Some epic Tol lawn fights that we haven't seen for a long while!
Agreed, last night was much more like it. Both sides were relatively balanced numbers-wise, and got to experience what raid v raid fighting is meant to be all about. Both sides got some nice points. What a refreshing change. Let's hope it lasts.
