sooo everyone has gotten ganked or ganked some just because you can , point is if you wanna get even with someone , can you gank him as much as you want , just because " you can " :) ? it's been a question to me long time now , especially on a rp/pvp realm since there is the element of roleplaying , you can actually excuse by pretending that you do some short of "roleplay assasination " ?

Whenever there's a way for players to resolve a situation themselves we prefer to not get involved. On a PvE realm it's opt-in, so if you get killed you essentially asked for it. If you're playing on a PvP realm you opted-in permanently, so again you essentially said that being attacked unexpectedly is okay.

It's a two way street - if you want the possibility of PvP then you have to accept that you may get 'ganked' now and then. If it's not working out for you, the only option is to move to a PvE realm or to hide in the capital cities. :)

That said, we don't abide is players deliberately trying to ruin the enjoyment of others; it is a game after all. If someone made it their mission to constantly kill another player (e.g., following them around and killing them whenever they're online, day after day, over a long period time), that could make it extremely difficult for the victim to play.

At that point it stops being PvP and becomes harassment. We'd want to hear about it and would, at the very least, look into the matter.

Hope that helps. :)
