The Uneasy Truce

All across the Outalnds, Horde and Alliance are passing each other by without slaughter and without bloodshed. An uneasy truce rules the land. Everyone is so excited to be questing and exploring, to be getting new gear and new skills that the petty squabbles of the War have been set aside. The Burning Legion is here, and they are enemies to us all.

The Truce, however, is fragile. A stray multi-shot or AoE is all it takes to turn a questing zone into a riot. Forge Camp Mageddon last night exploded after an Alliance warrior (I’m looking at you, Odeon) got tired of competing with the noble Horde for mobs and started ganking. The Horde fought back, more Alliance jumped in to defend and soon the Truce was a shadow of a memory and Odeon lay dead by my hand. Twice.

I encountered the same thing at Zeth’Gor. Too many people in too small a place. Tensions ran high and erupted and player killed player for hours on end. I haven’t seen much PvP in the tower objectives yet, but I have seen a lot in the dense quest zones. The Truce wears ever more thin in the Hellfire Peninsula. There were wide reports of rogues ganking lone travellers, druids appearing from nowhere and ruining a pull. Be careful out there and keep a sharp eye, this Truce cannot hold.

    I have never heard “I FRIGGIN HATE ROGUES” so many times over Vent in my entire life. Everyone’s playing nice and then two rogues backstab you in the middle of an attack. It’s been grotesque.

    Other than that, everyone else is mostly staying out of each other’s way, knowing that a PVP-fest just slows down the grinding. It’s like a Prisoner’s Dillema study for sociologists.

    I don’t know what problems people have, this game is called _WAR_craft. I love to be ganked and gank other player.

    On ThoBro, we are working together for the most part. I have left my PvP on and have been ganked by some fucking bluewalling punk ass Alliance trick ass motherfuckers but other than that, it has been Kool & The Gang.

    Meh. I’m on a PVE server so we have not had this escalation at the questing areas, but you know in a way I wish we had, because the frustration level gets fairly freakin’ high on some of the mobs and boss spawn points. Argh.

    Arzeth.. what a nightmare. The boss at the pools of Agonnar? A waiting line. All it takes is one asshat not being patient and everyone gets pissed off, and without it being pvp we have no recourse other than to yell over vent (at our team members) “Why didn’t you spam AOE so we’d tag him first!!!!?” and such.
