View Full Version : Level-locking at 70 is cheap, ridiculous and just wrong

06-01-2007, 11:28 AM
<p>So maybe I'm alone in this, but I seriously I think that level locking at 70 on PvP servers is highly overrated, cheap, and ridiculous.</p><p>Every now and then while in Commonlands (and other zones) I see a group of Level 70's killing a single player. They wait in groups, or even raids at the spire for some "newbs" who just arrived T7 to simply gank, grief and threaten them badly. This is so unfair and against the whole thing a PvP server is for.</p><p>And one day I saw someone in mastercrafted armor losing against a Freep in fabled PvP set. (both on same Level) That Freep was so cheap because he didn't go to eq2players and look up the equipment of the other person and say: "Oh, he's only mastercrafted and it would be unfair to fight against a fabled 70 Level-locked toon with FULL Achievements."</p><p>Heck, the other day I asked if I could join the Level 70 PvP group but I was too low, and they said "you should have a 70 Level-locked toon." That's ridiculous imo, tbh, fact.</p><p>So in summary: Level-locking at 70 is lame, and I have absolutely no respect for anyone who does it. You shame the nature of what PvP is supposed to be.</p><p><i>Note: You should not take this thread too serious. I just find it funny how the Level 70's have nothing better to do than go to the forums and flame the Level-locked <T7 toons who do EXACTLY the same as LEVEL-LOCKED T7 toons do.</i></p><p><i>So... The Level 70 player with 100 AA who did NEVER EVER kill somebody who just arrived that Tier in lets say mastercrafted or even worse equipment can now throw a stone at me.</i></p><p>PS: If you now ask whatelse a Level 70 should do instead of Level-locking is to stop i cannot control my vocab complain about us Level-lockers and go out enjoy the game in the way you like it.</p>

<p>Oh, and since this is kind of a reply to the other thread, I will argument against every statement from Mazzick.</p><p><i>So maybe I'm alone in this, but I seriously think that level locking on pvp servers is highly overrated, cheap, and utterly ridiculous.</i></p><p><b>You Level-lock at 70, we do it some Tiers before. Wheres the difference?</b></p><p><i>Every now and then while in Kelethin (and other cities) I'll see people killing themselves against the guards and respawning and doing it over and over again just to get exp debt. </i></p><p><b>If it was the only way at Level 70 to gain AA you would do the same.</b></p><p><i>Why? For the sole purpose of being a low lvl yet high AA having character. </i></p><p><b>Exactly that's what it's all about. I guess you are Level 70 with 100 AA. If my math is correct, 100 is bigger than 70, right?</b></p><p><i>Heck, the other day I asked if I could join the guild PvP group but I was too high, and they said ‘you should have a teen level-locked toon just for PvP'. That's ludicurous IMO.</i></p><p><b>Poor argument. You too wouldn't invite a Level 80 as a Level 70 to Level 80+levelrange can attack you.</b></p><p><i>This is obscene. I believe that:</i></p><p> <i>A: What SHOULD and DOES matter more when it comes to excelling at PvP is your own personal skill and knowledge at how to play your class; being able to tailor your tactics to any given situation. THAT is what truly matters.</i></p><p><b>That's why Level-lockers fight against Level-lockers.</b></p><p><i>B: Level-locking is essentially as cheap as twinking. Sure, you'll slightly outmatch your opponents due to your higher AA, but is that a fair fight? No. It's not. The greatest joys of PvP is engaging in a PC vs. PC or group vs. group battle in which the opponents are evenly matched. The ones where you find yourself and your opponent both with 50 hp left and your heart races with anticipation of a lucky crit or parried blow. </i></p><p><b>If Level-locking and equip your character to the maximum is cheap, you are cheap.</b></p><p><i>C: It gets boring being the same level with the same spells/combat arts for such a long time. You're missing out on A LOT. Heck, a lot of classes don't meet their full potential until their 20's and 30's. Sure you'll get a few new abilites here and there with your AA's, but it's nothing extraordinary!</i></p><p><b>Exactly dude! KoS and Level 70 is getting so bored with the same spells/CAs for a long time. That's why we lock at other levels to enjoy all the zones EQ2 has to offer.</b></p><p><i>So in summary....</i></p><p><i>Level-locking is LAME</i></p><p><b>Then youre lame too.</b></p><p><i>And I have absolutely NO RESPECT for anyone who does it. </i></p><p><b>YOU don't respect yourself?</b></p><p><i>You shame the nature of what PvP is SUPPOSED TO BE.</i></p><p><b>YOU shame the nature of what PvP is SUPPOSED TO BE?</b></p>

<p>Lol, yeah I think it is funny when 70s are like "level up newb" or somesuch, which I could easily do. But why, to hit 70, get 100 AA and all Fabled gear? That is if I am even in a raiding guild, which I am not and don't want to be. Plus, why not get 100 AA earlier on so you can possibly solo tough mobs and be able to solo PVP like a beast. </p><p>Twink early on, or twink later on, what is the difference? There are newbs in every tier that get ganked by better equipped, more seasoned players. So the people that learn the fact that everyone is twinked, and thus become twinked themselves kill someone that has not learned this rule is a jerk? I have been ganked when I first started, I have been ganked while twinked, there will always be someone better, either in gear/spells or skill.</p><p>In closing, people will always complain about something. Just play; die or win, you learn and have fun. Remember this is a game.</p>
