    Pssh, they don't need near as much DP anymore since they're auto-sigs. They killin mah slugs, I'm killin them.

    As for the whole 1v1 discussion, I won't get involved because I don't feel like arguing. Just know that if anybody sees me fighting a creep 1v1 at ANY time, I want it. You go away. Or 2v1. Maybe 3v1 depending on the creeps.

A certain recent hunter transfer could use this advice as well.
    Lmao, this coming from a moron who jumps as he has his mouse on the sprint button as he makes a hail mary to the npcs from this said recent hunter transfer. Interesting.

    I have the same feeling, on whatever side I'm on that day.
    This is a common curtesy that most should have, if you see a 1v1 in an odd place, be on the lookout for those who would stop it, you may get a 1v1 of your own

    Basically this. That's been my line for years now. Want respect? Earn it.

    No.

    PS. I don't even understand the outcast comment. Like the tribe and have good use of opposable thumbs? join it. Don't want to join and solo? don't complain about being an outcast.

    Your definition of solo play is different than mine. In your own words, you tag along the raid trying to leech kills from the raid. This is not solo play... If you want to claim you play solo go ride through the Moors and find your own fights...

    I somewhat agree with this. What you have to remember, though, is that this is Nimrodel. Finding anybody besides a greeny just riding around the moors when there's a fight going on is like...impossible.

    Keep laughing. I'm starting to enjoy your game pattern: 1. Come to the moors, 2. Get killed serveral times by the enemies you've so quickly made on this server, 3. Leave. I find it shocking, SHOCKING, you had to leave whatever server you came from.

    Re: Show some respect creeps/freeps to 1v1s

    Thanks all for your replies. I'll take them into serious consideration.

    I just find it amazing that such a little thing like hopping around can get so many players stirred up and make them "lose" respect for another player. I've already begun to try and control myself from the excessive hopping around such as running away from massive numbers, but know that it's not always because I'm trying to be arrogant. It's just me acting out of boredom because neither side wants to push because of shear overwhelming numbers or they just won't take a few steps out of the npcs.

    Honestly I'm not changing my playstyle for anyone or what anyone says. If i feel that I can still escape a defeat I'm going to take that opportunity, if other freeps choose to stay behind that's their own issue. I've always been the player that won't bother with situations that would just be utterly pointless, because dying countless number of times and not seeing any sort of results is not fun for me, and I'd rather just take my ball and go home for a while and come back in a few hours.

    Kabosh, I don't know if you have any toons on this server but seeing that your warg is from E, I would just have to assume that pvp on your server is much different then pvp on the nimrodel server. The actual leeching renown points I get from raid kills is very minimal to my overall renown gain. Most of the renown that i do earn is small 2-3 man groups or complete solo. Simply riding around in the nimrodel pvp zone and hoping that you'll find a high rank creep that won't immediately call out for more creeps to help out just simply does not happen. There are a few, to name a few, musta, dafro, bloodbain, who I have a tremendous respect for and are willing to fight me without having that backup around the corner. But the chances I get to compete with these players seldom ever happens and if I run across them and they seem to not be interested in sparring I will move on.

    So what other options are there other then continue to ride around hoping to find fights or just simply give-in every once in a while and hang outside of the raid.

    I believe what they've been saying all along is you need to EARN respect, it seems you've come here demanding respect (a quick way to ensure what little you may have had is lost and all hope to earn some extinguished) and now you're talking about how people have lost respect for you, to be honest mate i'll drop the hammer and say that it SEEMS nobody had any reason to respect you in the first place so it can't have been lost if it was never there to begin with. I have no qualms with you personally so please don't take this as an insult, this is just me analysing what I believe is you misinterpreting what information others have tried to convey to you throughout this thread.

    My 2c, take it or leave it.

    Re: Show some respect creeps/freeps to 1v1s

    This wasn't me creating a thread demanding respect from people, if anyone has misinterpreted this thread it is all the people saying this and I already KNOW that people would much rather just kill me for the hell of it then show me any sort of respect first. Creeps will just continue trying to kill me and I'll just continue trying to live and limit my deaths. I have no quarrels with people in this game as I get a long with most other players quite well and I'll keep doing what I like to do.

    I created this thread because I find that players don't respect 1v1s in general as a whole, I was just using my self as an example to show this. There are many other cases where I was watching two other players go at in a 1v1, and then boom, a player comes out of no where and finishes off whatever morale left on the freep/creep for whatever measly renown or infamy that they end up getting for it.

    But whatever, it's pvp, i understand that, but sometimes it's just really nice to spar other players without having to worry about if another player is going to spoil the fun...and ya i know there is candy mountain as stated countless times by other people who have posted in this thread, but this is just my 2 cents.

    I think you are missing a valuable point here, 1v1's are rarely KNOWN to everyone as being a wanted 1v1 so if they come across a fight all they see is they should help their fellow player.

    no.

    it shouldnt be common courtesy. it should be common sense.

    u see 1v1 and somebody is watching without helping, then dont join in too.

    u see 1v1 and nothing else - wherever that may be - then u should help ur fellow freep/creep unless they specifically tell u to get away, or shout in OOC or send pst, wutever.

    that being said......

    if u are in 1v1 and dont want anyone to join, then tell people to get away, BUT people STILL join anyway, then u should pick a more remote and hidden location next time.
    if u are in 1v1 and u got ganked in the moors, its YOUR FAULT.

    unless its Droilan. if he's fighting. leave him alone.

    even if he asks for help.

    dwarf dont need any help.

    again, common sense. u see a fight, u help out unless its OBVIOUS they want to be left alone. unless its Droilan.

    My fudge is hard.

    Ok, well for me specifically, I prefer to have my 1 on 1 fights left alone, and when I'm fighting i usually wont stop to type in ooc.

    ....but yeah, respect is earned not demanded, but looking for respect from a bunch of strangers in a video game is rather pathetic.

    This whole hopping around thing came up in Rift forums. It seems that the mouse turners think they gain some advantage by jumping around like idiots ./shrug

    Hahaha, I agree and I'm not an old geezer.

    I really don't see how jumping and spinning actually matters. Me and Jonah have been doing it endlessly for years now in every game we play. Not to really mean anything by it. It's just fun and can probably be categorized as a twitch.

    If someone says that they don't like/respect you because you jump around then it's just an excuse for something else they refuse to say in public. (Probably due to the likelihood of bans/infractions)

    ^^^^^^THIS!!!!! Count me in the Droilan group, if you see me fighting a solo Freep, GT*O!!!! and leave me alone!!!! I don't know about the rest of you, but typing and fighting don't mix for me, maybe I'll macro GT*O!!!! and leave me alone!!!!

    You ARE a carebear though! I type in ooc, jump, and talk to Leaveit while fighting 1v1s. xD I also spam glff with my rabble while running instances but that's probably easier.

    I pledge and put IXP runes on LI's. At least it gives me something to be concerned about (successfully applying the IXP, not the outcome of the fight.)
