HE is an *&%hole who doesn't stay and fight like i said, there have been numerous times he runs off instead of taking the death like a true pvp'er. Killing someone when they are fishing, fighting multiple mobs, or trying to purchase something from a vendor is lame.

Sounds like a "true" PvPer to me.

Hey, I understand the frustration but you then wished him ill in REAL LIFE. Not cool. If you can't get past stuff that ticks you off in game then you need to play something more relaxing man. You'll live longer.I'm saying this as someone who has been known to take things too seriously.

Suck it up, Buttercup. All's fair in love and war(craft).

Well, I have to agree that vendor-ganking and several of these other activities are dishonorable and "lame" by my standard of pvp but I've learned the hard way that it's impossible to try to convince others that pvp with honor is the way to go. :)I'll continue to advocate these things and live by example but to get freaked out about other people's bad behavior is a lesson in futility. Freaking out, cussing them out, and wishing them ill just feeds the fire.

Ever think that maybe he's just giving them back what they have done?

That's why the bounty part of this intrigues me. ;)

"runs off instead of taking the death" - the fact that you can't kill him fast enough and he can escape doesn't make him a "fake PvPer." Part of being skilled is knowing when to withdraw, and having the ability to do it. I don't think any of those situations are particularly terrible, unless you're botting while fishing, you're still at the keyboard. Fighting multiple mobs is a sad circumstance, but it happens quite often. All you do is rez and try to get the person back. And purchasing something from a vendor? How is that taking away your attention from the rest of the game? At least fishing is kind of mind-numbing.

He's learned how to take out people in the middle of the air by himself, and you're complaining that he doesn't stand still for you when you try to kill him? You tell me which one is the true PvPer.

Why would anyone "take the death" when they can escape alive and come back to finish you off? If that's the definition of a "true pvp'er" then "true" PvPers are not the smartest bunch. Sounds to me that it's not so much that he's an asshole, but that you're bitter about him besting you. You're on a PvP server; live with it.

You roll on a PvP realm, you get PvP. Don't cry about the kills. At least Tenj and his A.S.S. kill in very, very peculiar and noteworthy ways. I'd almost be honored to have been targeted by Tenj and the boys because it means someone thought enough of me to put a bounty on my head. And from a long-time Horde player to Tenj ... well played, my good sir. Well played indeed.

"runs off instead of taking the death like a true pvp'er"?? LOL!Yeah, every time I kill someone of the opposing faction, I wait patiently at the body so they can get me back.Last I checked, PVP was about maximizing enemy deaths and minimizing your own by any means necessary. Where did you get the impression that if someone ganks you, he's obligated to stick around and let you kill him back? Whoever told you that did you a horrible disservice.If you wanted to argue that boomkins have an unfair advantage in the air, I'd be willing to hear that argument. But complaining that he's an asshole because he's good at maintaining his advantages and controlling what situations he gets into... that argument just doesn't have legs, and just makes you sound bitter.Calling him names on blogs won't solve your problem. You're on a PVP server for crying out loud. Pick up your nuts and go after him.

As someone who has toons on that particular server that haven`t been played in over a year, I REALLY like this guy. I levelled on a PvE server so TN was my first experience of world PvP outside of Eastern Plaguelands etc. The number of immature asshats was just amazing. I`d love to see something similar on the PvE servers (What, you ask? Horde rogue flags in TB and then camps Largo's tower, waiting for you to use AoE attack which flags you, then his buddy shows up and two of them - or three - gank you. Definitely would love to be able to pay them back, especially since it's a PvE server ...).
