Ganking is NOT true PvP. It doesn't take skill for a level 70 to take out a level 35 and it never will. That is why there is a completely different term for it. Pvp is against a target that has a chance to defeat you. A Gank is against a target that has no hope to win. I understand why people enjoy ganking lowbie, but it requires no real strategy, no real skill and therefore is not REAL PvP.Especially in Warcraft. The name of the game implies that war is a CRAFT. It requires knowledge and skill. WarGank requires none of it and SHOULD be frowned upon because of it. Have I ganked? yes. But I don't pretend it takes skill to do so or that it is fun for the person that gets ganked.On the other hand, leveling on a PvP server is harder and creates a sense of awareness a player can never get on a PvE server. There is a heightened sense of play on a PvP server because once you are in contested areas, you are NEVER safe.This adds something to the game that cannot be replicated without the danger of the gank.
