Griefers at the Engineers

How does someone force you to click "Open Play?"
No one is forced an no one said it is. Except many new players might get into Open with the illusion to meet up with some decent humans. This dream is quickly and thoroughly destroyed by the mindless seal clubbers. We might disagree about the question whether that's healthy for the game or not...

...but we agree no one is forcing anyone to play a certain way, are they?

This kind of thing only happens maybe 1% of the time.

This is just more extreme over exaggeration to push an agenda.

Seal clubbers aren't mindless, they're malicious. If they were mindless, they wouldn't have the faculties required to effectively club seals! Silly Pi!

This has been RELSPI's Semantics, episode 1. Tune in for more!

This is a good point. It's what I was alluding to when I mentioned fighting griefers instead of dealing with them.

When I was really into serial murder it struck me how all the words in all the world never stopped any of us from pullin' down a CMDR and smoking them. But teaching them how to survive? Not just the tactics, build, but the will as well? Oof, that makes people unstoppable.

Help me help you help us all. Or however that goes!
 
The Open-Only PP group are trying to... but no, nobody else is.
But then, playing in Open shouldn't mean you want PvP either.
Good luck to them, I suppose. Personally, I'm not invested in Open Only anything anymore. And you're right, it doesn't mean you want PvP, but as long as the mechanics support it be prepared somehow.
 
No and that's what' I'd call hypocrazy: How would I ever force a ganker not to gank, or a seal clubber not to do what he obviously likes so much? It's all talking and opinions, soft and kind words that seem to hurt those gankers oh so badly.
I fail to see any soft and kind words from you and others like you.
All I see is "gankers are sociopaths" "gankers are pathetic wastes of life" "they were probably abused as children" "they only go after easy targets and run away from real PvP" < that one's my favorite.
 
On the Xbox side, 20-35 is where most of my acquaintances are, I'd say. I'm 26 or 27, I always forget.

15 is about the youngest I've encountered in-game, and just shy of 70 being the oldest.

Lotta OGs out there who played the original games, and I think that's rad.
 
Nah man, gankers would love that mega server structure where they could get their hands on you enmasse. If something like that were implemented, the ensuing PvE white knight massacre would look something like this:
I would very much like to see what would happen. There are quite a few examples of large animals or people taken out by fire ants, siafu, or africanized bees. I would like to see how those japanese hornets would do against africanized bees or the aggressive ants.

As far as the comparison between gankers and DW2 that is completely specious (not your statement Jason). The group of players were geared specifically for exploration not general purpose. Again, individual instances would not tolerate 40 players to mount any legit defense.

No, I won't get that far. Lets ground it a little bit. From what I've gathered (correct me if I'm wrong), your general set of mind seems to be "Whatever I do in Open doesn't matter, as long it's not against the rules". Right?
Wrong. Everything you do in Open matters! A prominent example is piracy and its current state. Why do you think is it so? I'll tell you: Too many gankers who pretended to be pirates ruined the business for the pirates at the end.

So no, I'm not talking about sociopath, psychopath or whatever -path, just the plain old -hat I'm talking about.
