PvP ETIQUETTE

    As an active PvP Player, these are some things i think of on a daily basis.


    1. Don't duel between keep. You are just distracting players traveling between the keeps when their focus should be defending or pushing.

    2. Don't duel around keeps that are flagged. Cyrodiil is one enormous map, there's plenty of room. (See #1).

    3. Your Alliance would prefer if someone high level and fast picked up the scroll.

    4. Don't use others siege and start sieging at random stuff that makes 0 sense. Buy your own and do whatever you want with them!

    5. Don't push enemy into their home-base. Keep map interesting for all parties. Give Alliances a chance to push back.

    6. If you have siege, use them, be useful.

    7. 1 person can run 1-3 sieges. No need for the whole group to run 1 siege each. Scout, defend, be useful.

    8. Don't just stand in the breach at a flagged keep waiting for a miracle to happen while the opposing alliance pour hot oil on top. You will most likely die.

    9. Try placing forward camps as close as possible to your flagged keep.

    10. Let the less fortunate low levels use wells. If you're high level, you should have your own food by now.

    11. DON'T CHASE

    12. Don't spread out (See #11). Did you miss every horror movie ever created? Stay together, don't spread out.

    13. Don't get upset when you get killed and go all Twitter fingers like it's a Meek Mill vs The Game fight. No need to send evil messages to person who killed you.

    14. Don't expect Templars to keep you alive, that's your own job.




    Do you have any PvP Etiquettes? ;)

    STOP THE TBAG 2016

    When i get zerged down and the zerglings feel the need to drop balls on my face... NOT COOL

    Try not to beat down on a solo low level roaming a quest area or the middle of nowhere in cyro. It's pitiful and honourless. At least give them the opporunity to engage on their own terms when its a clearly one sided fight.

    I remember one because it happened today.

    If you have an incoming meteor aimed for your head try to stay away from others. There were instances where someone would run right into me with that thing hitting us both.

    No offense, but if I'm being chased by a zerg, taking care of your little stealthed hiney is the last thing on my mind. :D
    Plus, chances are you will not be able to rez me anyway if I die, because I'll be camped and I have no clue if you carry camps/are willing to set one up.
    So yes, I'd rather lure the zerg in that direction if it means I give my actual team-mate a chance to escape, even if you are there.

    I don't do it to be a b*** on purpose, you're just really low on my priority list then and there. :p
    If I have a better route that doesn't lead to you, I'll take it. But if you're in the way then *shrug* - collateral damage.
    Besides - you have the benefit of not being chased and your resources drained, are in stealth - so they are not even aware of you yet - so if you see the pain train coming, move away.

    @Zouni When I see a stealth and Im getting zerged down with no hope, I usually try to avoid them. That said, I dont have to run the fastest, I just have to run faster than you...And in stealth, you're pretty damn slow.

    Just something to consider.

    Perhaps I am being misunderstood - when someone takes a a 90 degree turn to come to my spot as I am moving away is what I am refering to. I was not in harms way until that idiot steered them my way. Understand?

    I understand what you are saying. I also understand why someone would right right for you. Happens all the time. Stealthy players rarely help. If you are going to just sit there and watch me die, I may bring you a parting gift. Why dont you just jump in there? You afraid to die?

    I remember some weeks ago while fighting DC a sorc near alessia's bridge, I took and advantage and send him to the slaughterfishes with destruction reach... obviously he died while swimming.

    and sent me some PMs that started with the F word... which I replied "if you don't know how to fight at alessia's bridge, don't come to alessia's bridge"

    But the question remained... was my fault for taking adantage of his (bad) position? Was his fault for putting himself in that situation? I remember the first time I was WBed down the bridge was like "nice idea"

    What does the PvP etiquette say about that?
    The biggest problem within this game is the lack imagination on its player base and its developers...
    DragonKNIGHT KNIGHT!!!! not Dragonscoundrel, neither Dragonarcher....
    ― Our enemy was bold so we were bolder... our enemy was strong so we were stronger...

    ― Then, why did you lose?

    ― Our enemy was stupid...
    Get rid of poison on DKs...

    Hard to do it on prime time due to lag.

    Oh no I quite understand, Im saying that you are being used as a sacrificial lamb in the pursuit of escape and that the best way to avoid this in stealth is to simply be more stealthy.

    That said its a totally *** move imo to blow someones cover or to not help either way, but I think its very circumstantial. If Im running a nb or a sorc running maximum range attacks from a perch its a lot more practical to help out than if Im at point blank range while my team mate is outnumbered 10 to 1. The circumstance of the fight matters.
