Normally I'd reply in a serious manner, but upon reading your signature and the part where you said "Early SWG was the WORST POS I have ever played", I decided that you couldn't possibly be serious.
About SWG, I mean.
Post-NGE SWG was worse than pre-NGE. And that's not a personal opinion, it's a fact.
On the topic of the thread, yes, Warfront deserters (or PvP deserters in general) are annoying. Almost as annoying as those Clerics that ride up to you, as you're trying to hold off an invasion single-handedly, and just watch you die. Upon asking them why they didn't help out with a heal or something, they just say "lol im dps".
Makes me rage so hard.
The wife played NGE later. She hated it. I didn't try it, so I can't rightly speak of it. Likely, all of SWG would be one of the worst POS's I have played, but I can only comment on my playtime.
In Rift, I find a couple of consistencies that are cliche in PvP games:
1: some of the loudest whiners play on pvp servers to get their masochistic fix.
2: some players enter PvP then cry when they die.
- If you enter PvP, you will
die. If not the first time, then the second or later. You will never be undefeated.
- If you play against another player, you will not "pwn" "score" or otherwise "roflstomp" due to your stupid "leet" skills unless the other player is a poor player.
- If you get "pwned" or "roflstomped", it is not an indication that the other, better player is "OP." No, in fact he does not need a nerf so stop whining.
- If the opposing Warfront team has 6 clerics and you can't score, it does not mean clerics are OP and doesn't give you an excuse to act like a baby.
If one does decide to play PvP, expect to die, play to have fun, and laugh while doing so. If you aren't having fun, then PvP is not for you. The louder you whine, the more I want to grief your character.
