Playing flagged, the update


Wow, playing flagged sure is fun……NOT

1. First encounter was a lvl 60 hunter who waited until I was at 25% health fighting a 54 Elite Dragon to kill me. Then he waited close by and would kill me the second I re spawned with no health. Finally I waited until he was fighting a mob, re spawned, got on my mount and rode off to get back to full health. He chased me the entire way to the flight path and then I realised he was unflagged. I left the protection of the flight path with full health, rode down the hill, dismounted and told him to bring it on. Chicken Alliance POS wouldn’t flag and fight like a man. So, I left.

2. I’m sititng in XR flagged and Paranoid goes off telling me theres a stealthed rogue nearby. I start riding around in circles all over XR so I won’t get backstabbed. 15 minutes later I’m bored stiff. I stop running, he backstabs me, kidney shots me, I get in some hits, get a nice overpower but die. I respawn, ride around with another warrior, the rogue unstealths we charge, he gets away stealthed and I’m back to riding around in circles for an hour. Where is the fun in having to ride around in circles for hours?

I don’t mind getting my ass kicked, I’m a PvP n00b. I expect to lose and learn and really do appreciate a good fight. But, if this is going to be my flagged life night after night I’m going to have to roll up the flag until the 4th.

    Let’s face it, PvP is not about chivlary, is about getting honor kills. It is easier to pray on the weak, specially for a ranged toon.

    On the rogue incident, that was rogues are good at, stealthing and backstabbing, come on! they are hit men with leather armor. Expecting them to go mano-a-mano with a warrior all clad in plate is… far-fetched.

    That’s why I only flag myself in the BGs or when specifically needed.

    should be chivalry and prey… OMG… I’m beggining to write as an 8 years old ;-)

    Hey, I’m not complaining, just questioning the fun factor of running around flagged. Me thinks I’m to interested in an honorable fight. I’ll either have to learn to take advantage of situations or unflag.

    If I was a leather wearing rogue I’d be hiding from a flaming 2H axe wielding, plate wearing warrior also. Ya gotta use what you got! Kudos to him for having more patience than I. But if my game experience is going to be limited to running around in circles for an hour or two I’ll lose the full time flag.

    LOL, what I was trying to point out is that you will not get “fair” fights when flagged.

    The other day a level ?? attacked a friend of mine and killed him, when I came to rez him, he attacked me as well.. then for like 15 mins the guy kept camping over our bodies… fun? not at all, it’s life :-p

    PvP isn’t really all that fun in you’re playing on a PvE server. On a PvP server, when everyone is flagged, people act differently.

    Gotta get in here and say, welcome to PVP. it’s crud like this that’s the reason I can’t stand PVP servers anymore, and refuse to flag unless it’s a massive raid situation.

    If you’re really interested in PvP I recommend playing on an actual PvP server. Sure it’s frustrating at time, but there’s also an element of real danger that you just can’t get on a PvE server. I play almost exclusively on PvP now. It’s just too much fun.

    yes, pvp servers are the way to go. You’ll still get ganked ridiculously at times, but it’s got a more realistic feel, and there are many times where you interact with the other side, with no violence. It’s a little bit refreshing.
