View Full Version : PvP during PvE

Greetings. I have one question for the gaming community here. If some red name will answer, that would be fantastic too. The question is pure and simple. <b>Is it allowed to engage an enemy in PvP when your enemy is engaged in PvE? </b>In other words,<b> is it allowed to gank while your victim is fighting a mob?</b> The answer seems to be obvious. Well, I thought so as well. Let me brief you a little bit on the subject. I play on Russian PvP server Harla Dar. Yes, I know, we have our own forums and I would gladly keep my writings to there, If only I could get an adequate answer. But alas, GMs there think that it is a bannable offence to attack other players while they are fighting mobs. That is why I would like to get a second opinion very much. I am one of guild masters of ”AD clan” – Russian guild based on Russian PvP server Harla Dar. We are an established guild with 3 year history, currently having two sections in two MMORPGs, one of which is in Everquest 2. We are proud to be one of the top raiding guilds on Harla Dar. We have more server first kills in EoF content than any other guild on our server which shows our dedication to the game. We like to raid and we like PvP that comes with being part of PvP server. But it seems that not everyone here, on Russian servers shares that view. Yesterday, four of our members were banned, including all three guild leaders. The reason being (translation follows): <b>Members of your guild repeatedly violated rules of conduct in the game, regularly preventing other groups of players from killing raid boss (Rules of Conduct, part 2, paragraph 5). If this will repeate, more violent actions may follow, including full guild disband and account blocking of users violating such rules. As leaders, you must warn other guild members about infeasibility of such conduct in game. You are fully responsible for actions of your guild members, and in case of repeated violation of rules, you will be subject to the strictest sanctions, including permanent account ban. </b>May I say, that two top raiding guilds on our server were fighting over The Direvine Matron for well over a month now. We killed and killed and killed each other countless number of times. Any time of the day you can think of - we PvP at the Matron. Answer is obvious - an artefact that the Matron drops upon its first kill. We even agreed to try and reach a compromise - unfortunately that did not work out, so we were back to square one. Seems normal, PvP on PvP server, right? Well, Game Masters thought otherwise. Furthermore, only members of our guild were banned (as one of admins on our forum explained - other guild had a nerve to report us for killing them, therefore only we were banned). Same member of administration later explained that <b>it is not allowed to engage in PvP with raid that is already engaged in encounter with raid boss. </b>It also seems that we, as guild members are responsible for all actions of our guild members.<b> So what do you think here, on American and Euro servers? </b>

Killing eachother to prevent the kill of a contested mob is VERY much a part of the normal flow on pvp servers. Its just plain and simple stupid to ban people for PvPing on a PvP server, AND if it wre a bannable offense, pretty much all the top line pvp guilds on nagafen would be banned. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> If they dont want people to attack a raid killing a contested raid mob, they could simply lock the encounter from pvp action. Those GMs need to be banned themselves.

This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard.   It cannot possibly be true. Banning people for fighting for a <i><b>contested </b></i>mob??   On a PvP server?!?! Any GM involved should be fired.  If the other guild gets the Matron before you because all your leaders are banned, my head will asplode.

<p>Darkwatcher the rules in your server may very well be true but here on our servers this happens often and all of us think its crazy for a story like yours to be true. first of all just how would they prove suck a thing second of all is that a pvp server? </p><p>Man if your telling the truth your server sucks so bad, your country may be different than our so the rules might be different too and this may be the case but i would reroll on a real pvp quick cause that the most retarted thing iv ever heard in my pvp life<b><u><span style="font-size: xx-large">.</span></u></b></p>

<p>Well, I know they have some rules in effect about quest/named mobs. Something to do with someone impeding your ability to enjoy the pve part of the game. </p><p>I remember back in the days before T6 it was one way you could /petition the botters. You could say that they were hampering your quest by locking down much needed mobs. Back before they took the loot tables out of most HQ mobs you'd be lucky to get a named you needed before the 5 auto followers and there tank came rolling thru to mow it down...</p><p>Blame every stupid rule in the game on plat farmers and those people who buy plat to keep them doing what they are doing. IMHO, most of the stupid nerfs in the game were implimented to keep them from sploiting something.....</p>

<p>What a can of worms that opens up!  This would set a precedent that could result in the banning of 99% of US servers.  Of course, if it is established that your guild indeed waited every time until the enemy guild was engaged [Removed for Content] the mob before you attacked, this could narrowly be defined as an attempt to interfere with normal gameplay.  Does your GM also double as the regular PVE GM?  It certainly sounds as if an adjustment of mindset might be called for if this is the case.  My advice in the meantime is to make sure to loudly announce in channels and call for all available friends and allies to attack the enemy.  It would be very difficult to argue if a wide variety of players and guilds were involved to argue 'conspiracy'.</p>

You are not going to find one person from the US servers who would agree with those bannings. In America all is fair in love and war and PvP is war. If your toons get banned on Harl-dar come over to one of the US servers where you can wack people who are pulling mobs all day long.

I have never ever seen or spoke to a GM. I have not received any warnings, I was just banned and received a letter that was translated in my original post. Secondly, mob training is a lie, be it wrong or not. Thirdly, to all who found the situation amusing, here is an update. It seems that russian localisation team has "forgotten" to translate PvP ruleset. And we were playing on PvP servers with PvE rules. They admitted to that mistake and they agreed to translate and implement PvP rules some time later. However, our members are still banned, although ban has been reduced to one week.

This is absolutely insane. But, I don't really understand the relationship between SOE, the PvP servers here, and the Russian PvP servers... The day I'm reprimanded because I'm told not to attack someone fighting a raid mob, or any other mob, is the day I cancel all my accounts. Complete.  Insanity.

There have to be times when there are not many people around a contested mob...like when it first pops. Get the timers down. Of course you should be able to kill anyone, anytime. Even when fighting a contested. It is a raid mob, it is a pvp server, it is contested. To the winner goes the spoils. I got ganked while soloing a named last night, I had no chance to beat the named or the ganker. I didn't /petition. Why would it be different if you are in a raid?

A x4 contested spawns every week, your named where you got ganked spawns all 20 minutes to 2 hours. There's not much skill involved with killing an heroic named, even with the adds of the same amount of PvPers. (not really speaking about soloing evencon heroic nameds) But it would be simply impossible to kill a same Tier contested with the add of some PvPers. But if you say you can kill Hurricanus with 18 people plus the same amount of PvP adds, props to you.

Nowhere did I say it would be easy, but if you are playing on a pvp server....there is pvp.

Is that what you're saying?

Removing the ability to attack people is slowly strangling PvP. Putting in place a mechanic by which people cannot attack people who are engaged with a mob, any mob, will literally eviscerate PvP. Some of the most fun I've had PvP is swooping in on a raid, either solo or in a group, and preventing them from taking down the raid mob.  One group, and even one person, can do that. That's the way it SHOULD be.  The mobs are in OPEN ZONES.  The mobs are CONTESTED. WORK YOUR [Removed for Content] OFF FOR THE KILL.  THERE IS NO FREE RIDE.
