Hey guys, I see a lot of negativity on the forums. Specifically, a lot of it is directed toward pvp. As we know people theorize that pvp updates are targeted by "spite voters". I propose we have a thread discussing positive pvp experiences instead of about problems we have with it.

One recent experience I can think of was very fun. I was at the chaos altar logging into different worlds to find prayer bones. I was using my crossbow to tag the players before they could log out. Well I logged into one world, saw a player, than tagged him with my crossbow. My dragonstone boots (e) procc'd, and I killed him in one hit for a 53.

Lol! I really hope he wasnt afk or botting and saw that. Was definitely one of the funniest kills I ever got. So anyway, try to have a positive discussion of pvp experiences. I'm sure there are others who have positive things to say about pvp in osrs.

This is the problem with PKing in the wildy, there are no net positive experiences, PKers just don't care because they're on the positive side of the equation, but do you really think the scenario you just described was a positive experience for the guy you 1 hit? We must smash the iron ceiling and end the oppressive maintriarchy.

Hi mismarks251,

I am glad you had a good day in the Wilderness. Seems like you had a fun time. :)

The problem why people have negativity towards them can be numerous factors.

1. Players don't know how to pk and lots of people don't have time to learn the mechanics of different builds. If a player keeps dying its no fun is it? Therefore, some players don't have the patients to keep dying and eventually become some what of an expert. Also money can be a factor here

2. The amount of abusive comments and toxic play that sometimes arises from the wilderness can lead players away and create a stigma that pkers aren't very respectful players.

While I am no pker, I think pking is still a thriving community in some respects. If the pking community can be more respectful to other players, then pking would be a thriving community.

These are only my opinions. Others may agree or disagree.

A singles team once beat my ass do bad that I ended up praising them for their skill rather than hating them for PKing me. Draft dodger btw. Too scared to attack an enemy that tried to harm my loved ones so "I only learned to defend". Typical boomer born right after the era where my parents suffered the solitude of WWII, deprivation of the Great Depression while I never had to suffer jack or risk a thing. :)

Oh I can relate to being able to run away from someone who was going to pk you. Even though a lot of times it's because of how broken the game is. If you get to a certain distance you'll still be on the map bit they wont be able to land a spell to snare you. Then you can just log out and switch worlds.

Are you a shield guy?

The point is, pkers are a minority of the game. ONLY pkers would find anything positive about pking. THAT is why the majority have a negative view of it.

IF your a pker, its all positive, even when other pk you.
IF your not a pker, its all negative as it disrupts your game play.

That's why the majority stay out of the wild and pkers get upset when the wild is empty of easy targets.
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

Gotta stop ya right there. That isn't true.

I went out to the wildy.. just wandering around thinking about the way it used to be.. I got tired of walking around and wanted to go back to lumby and figured the fastest way to get there was if I could get somebody to pk me. Would have been a net positive if I had actually convinced one of them to do it cause I wouldnt have had to walk all the way back. =)

Turned out I couldn't convince a single one of them to pk me and I discovered all it took to get back was to step into the KBD lair and take off that silly shield. I didn't have to walk back thanks to the KBD's willingness to kill a player... but it would have been a positive if somebody had pked me... and I'm not a pker.

False. I've never PKed yet I find positive things about it. It's a fun experience for a lot of people, dibby. Now quit trying to tell us how to play the fucking game. Draft dodger btw.
