    Hi EdgeCase !

    So I'll give my two cents and in hopefully actionable ways.

    So my solo time has been limited since I've come back. I've had the opportunity to be running with a RL friend of mine, and it's been nice spending time with him while roaming around. I even jumped...

    PvMP'ers are no more unified in their thoughts and opinions than PvE'ers, Raiders, Questers, Role Players, or any sub-group of the greater LotRO community.

    I don't believe I said anything about ganking. Fundamental game theory would prescribe balanced cost/benefit ratios for all playstyles. It's really just that simple.
