Feb 17th 2010 11:10PM Why is everyone so butt-hurt over the idea of ganking? Its just a video game. You are all way to serious over this.
PvP (and ganking with that) is part of the game. There is no way around that it was implemented by Blizzard as a play style. Did you roll on a PvP server? Did you get ganked from 10-80? Chances are you did at least once. And chances are you yourself have turned around and killed a low level dude yourself. Don't try and deny it. Everyone on a PvP server has killed another player with some sorta disadvantage. Maybe it wasn't a level disadvantage. Maybe you and your friend were questing together and killed someone. Maybe your class was super overpowered at the time and had a 1v1 and owned face. It doesn't matter. It made you smile, just that little bit. You didn't quit the game and have a mental breakdown because you realized you are what everyone else on a PvP server is! My God. Its not a bad thing.
We are suppose to be able to kill each other. We are at war with each other. The orcs were slaughtering humans, dwarves, draenai and destroying the Night Elves home. The Trolls and the Elves have a deep hatred for each other, as do the trolls and dwarves. Sylvanas hates all living, especially humans beause of Arthas. Its A WAR. You don't just /wave and move on. Chances are that that level 50 human Pally you are /waving at is going to grow up and /hug your dead body. :) Did people really just roll alliance because they were prettier? No. Most people want to be the "good guys" and kill the "bad guys." WoW isn't the only game that does this, and WoW players aren't the only gankers.
You are all raging way too hard at a Coloumnist from WoW.com who is sitting and talking about an one aspect of the game. You may not LIKE that part of the game, but that is YOUR problem, not his. It doesn't make him less right about the fact that all players (and especially rogues) love to pop up unexpected and beat the shit outta you and then stealth away to find someone else. I mean, its a key in their game play. QQ people, QQ.
TL;DR? If you do not like PvP, roll on a PvE server and don't flag yourself, and stay out of BGs, an arena. If you are going to PVP in BGs and Arena, expect to be at a disadvantage, and get some skill.

Nov 18th 2009 8:46PM So you got completely flamed on your forums, and you figure the best plan of action is to run into one of the forum user's blog, and complain? So bad.
