In defense of the Cyrodiil ganker

    You sound like an honorable ganker, for whatever that's worth. The only gankers I have a problem with are the Nightblades in IC. They just wait until a bunch of mobs are on you and then Ambush with a proxy Det or Surprise Attack to finish you off and collect your stones. These guys are the scum of the mundus.

    "You also cannot expect such dramatically different classes in this game to have 1v1 dueling-type matches based on distorted principles of fairness."

    Preach it brother.

    Ganking 4 on 1 is just cowardly.

    Ganking 4 one 1 is conditional. When you gank you don't know if you are going to find 1 person or 20 people. It just happens.

    I have a confession....

    Sometimes I just throw on 7/7 divines, 5 hundings, 1 kena, 1 bloodspawn full medium and sulk around the areas leading up to crossed sword locations. I stay there in sneak and wait for lowbies to wander by with their slow horses with less then 20% speed upgraded. They probably spent 10 minutes riding from keep, now almost ready to see action...

    And then I rally + camo + molten + magelight > heavy attack + SS > crit rush + leap.... They normally die well before the crit rush.. Then I laugh hard as they come back 10 mins later along the exactly same path, still mounted, still unbuffed....

    I know, I Know... I hate myself too.. But sometimes this helps me blow off some work stress... :(

    I have no issue with gankers. I consider myself immune to being ganked and not particularly suited to ganking. I do however get dragged along ganking by my stamblade guild mate quite frequently. Mostly I find it boring cos he is much faster than me in stealth and also perfectly capable of dispatching upto 2 players without my help. Also I feel $h1tty ganging up on players that are mounted. For this reason I usually just sit in stealth watching, trying to influence his target choices, and leeching his ap until he causes enough grief to produce a reaction from the enemy faction. This is when ganking gets fun and leads me onto my point; ganking can be a great way of setting up smallscale pvp. Stay in one place long enough and an exciting 2vX will happen. It will most likely end up in a wipe cos they have the number and anger advantage, but will still be pretty damn exciting, especially if it doesn't end up in a wipe.

    Ganking is evil, easy AP for most who do it.

    I got ganked in Bruma while entering a building for the quests. Two blues, one was stunning/CC-ing and using heavy attacks while his buddy was channeling RD. I went back to see if they would use the same routine and indeed they did consistently. So I sneaked in to observe them and saw how they did this to multiple single players. They didn't stand a change, so very easy AP for the blues.

    Bad day for single adventurers.
