    I want to know what kind of PvP community exists in Ultima Online.. ... If you think I've missed a PvP archetype please feel free to select the best suited option and educate me.

    I chose FFA PVP (kill everyone else/any tactic to win)

    But I don't know what you mean exactly by "any tactic" to win.

    I don't use any 3rd party programs for instance (unlike the majority of PvPers these days)

    I think you forgot a choice. Not all players do PvP.
    I like RP to be a part of PvP but not always possible so I'¨m a lonely vampire/wolf too:)

    You also forgot choices for non agressive PvP'ers who don't mind PvP but only will PvP when attacked or will die or try to run.

    I think it was wrong only to allow active PvP'ers to vote. Even on a shard like Siege we do have non PvP'ers who choose to play on a PvP shard with risk for getting PK'ed.

    Sure it's your choice but players love polls, even if there choice will be not doing what the poll is about :)

    Honestly, I didn't think about it! PvP "Gaming" was the only word on my mind..

    It's ok, easy to forget what's not in yout mind :p
    And don't run, remember you are a PvP'er :D
     
  9. None of the above.

    I do champ spawns. Everywhere else is FFA apart from killing miners/LJ'ers which is just pointless. (in case thats not clear pointless = I don't do it)

    Res killing - not of the random blues, for example on Atlantic theres often guilds you 'know' are primarily tram based guilds. I would attack & if I get the kill would usually offer the res. (wether they take it or not has gone both ways)
    Though if it's a fel guild or certain player that I know has irritated me in someway in the past then I will probably go out of my way to keep them dead and collect as much as I can off them.

    That one would have gotten my vote if it were on the list.

    I only PvP when attacked, but I'm not opposed to a fight, even if I usually lose.

    Hrm. I try to always be honorable in PvP, but I have occasionally participated in a gank or ambush. What I don't do, as a general rule, is gate PvP. Field fighting, champs, harry's, faction PvP are all great fun, gate fighting is not.

    Im a mix actually....

    Im a lone wolf who fights anyone, but I also have a gimpy stealth archer that dismounts/ganks/kills anyone. My stealther just kills anyohne and everyone for the gold. I had an experiment. I started with 100k in the bank just to set a bar and have enough insurance to cover any deaths i might get...

    I havnt added any gold to the bank what so ever, and hes well over 2.4mil in less than three months.

    Involuntary PvP - This is where you are usually minding your buisness and enjoying your gaming experience and some PK guild shows up in large numbers and start casting on you 5 to 1 because they think they own the whole facet.

    I choose "other" for "accidental"

    I'm horrid at PvP.

    I go to Fel and get killed alot though ! When I DO manage to kill someone it's usually an accident. :

    " I killed you ?!? OMG"

    *whoots*

    *dances on corpse*

    *blushes*

    "opppse sorry. Here ! Have a cookie !"

    *scampers*

    Other - retired.
    I used to be in factions, fight some battles between groups of people (not necessarily guilds), defend champ spawns from invaders.
    So mainly Feluccan survival, defence and some fun in larger groups. Never dueled.
     
  30. The only roleplaying PKs I ever saw were the 3EDs guild on Catskills.

    They had a very unique approach... like the Ed Edd and Eddy cartoon characters they were named after, they were incredibly incompetent. They were red, they would attack players, but they would never kill the players. In fact, they usually ended up killing each other in a comedic fashion.

    For instance I remember getting para'ed by Edd, and then Eddy emoted passing a bomb box to Ed, saying "You know what to do, monobrow." Then Ed yelled COOKIES YUM YUM and the others yelled NO ED..... boom. Ed keels over dead in an explosion. The others recall out, leaving me untouched, yet still para'ed.

    I still really dont understand if these guys were just bored or what.

    That's great! There should be more of that. Could you box those guys up and ship them over to Drach as a pressie for me please? :)
     
  32. Ive some troubles to understand that one :
    "RP PvP (Roleplay while you PvP)"

    Are you talking about some RP players?!? Do you mean that people will sit down. Get a table and some chairs from their backpack. They will sit around the table, place dices on the table, ask their GM and start rolling dices? First rolls to know if they hit. Second rolls to know the damages, or something like that? :confused:
