through the room.

A Tairen bloodstock stallion stands here, tail swaying with the breeze.
*Detritus* is standing here.
A warhorse is here, stamping his feet impatiently.
A warhorse is here, stamping his feet impatiently.

A white destrier stands here proudly, alert for battle.

We were actually doing a quest. You willingly joined the quest and were sent to the circle. The rest of the Horde should have communicated that to you before you came out. Sorry. We couldnt let you just go to Moridin.

Frankly Byrg - you can't talk.

Yes DS should have warned you there were LS in TKD.
No, you shouldn't whine about getting hit by numbers when it is what you do in every single instance (unless bored absolutely shitless and solo, in which case you will actually fight a solo person if they're both losing and you know they're solo).

Until you change how you fight I see absolutely no reason to not hit you with groups.

Oh my god the pk summaries really hit the nail on the head.

Ah - yeah sure I'll own up to the bringing smob groups to pk. Which seems to be almost every one of their complaints. (strangely, cause there is a lot more they could complain about).
For me if an opponent brings smobbers it means I'm going to get a shitton of easy kills.
I also wear the risk every time I turn our smob group around and hit that I'll get blamed for everyone dying (which has happened numerous times).

There are regular instances where if someone is having good or balanced pk we actively choose not to go - including against high profile targets like akzak, or zangief, and nevaeh, and even a couple of times llama boy. If you're smashing the solo pker with 4, or bring 2 new names when the pkers are already crit, I mean thats free game at that point but also most likely the pkers are already dead unless we're in the exact right location.

I note you haven't broken your streak of complaining about the unfairness of every single death you have.

Also for the sake of clarity I was speaking to the imm in question afterwards and probably should have told the group that they had locked the door because they thought they had messed up the smob and were fixing it; rather than that the smob now autolocked.

A thread where people whine about people who whine about people who whine about the state of PK.

And no one brought me up yet? Lame.

pretty sure the state of pk lately is pretty much just this:

*Draz* has arrived from the west, riding a wild stallion.
A young Tower Guard has arrived from the west.
*Skythe* has arrived from the west, riding a bloodstock stallion.
*Fyves* has arrived from the west, riding a warhorse.
*Detritus* has arrived from the west, riding a bloodstock stallion.
A young Tower Guard has arrived from the west.
*Chale* has arrived from the west, riding a warhorse.
*Carlia* has arrived from the west, riding a Domani razor.
A young Tower Guard has arrived from the west.
*Chale* moves swiftly to protect *Carlia*.
*Carlia* tickles your body with her whip.
*Fyves* blasts your body.
I just wanted to point out the odds of two strangers picking names so similar and lacking in vowels.

Also, have rerolls been fixed? I have a character coming up in 4-5 mud years.
