just to keep my opinion separate from the poll itself, I'm double posting~
I play on one of the two PVP-RP servers, and honestly.... there's very little RP... on the surface. The bulk of the RPers tend to keep to themselves and avoid global chat and such, because global chat is... well... what one can expect from global chat; full of idiots and arguments about nonsense and shenanigans. You can find people RPing in say here or there, if you know what to look for, and a lot of people seem to have the courtesy not to interrupt said RP conversations, or to **** in unexpectedly. You have to work to find a good RP guild, but they do exist.
One thing I have noticed though... the gankers on my server seem to be divided into two groups. The first group generally do it for the lulz, and do stuff like knocking people off the top of elevators or towers, and generally suck at pvp (and I SUCK at pvp, so someone who sucks worse than I do is pretty sad). They're your typical troll gankers, who run around talking and acting like twelve year olds who just got their first *****.
The other group are usually slightly better at pvp (and by slightly, I'm being generous), but still can't handle anyone at or near their actual level, but while ganking they actually RP... I really want to call it Troleplaying, lol. They manage to be total douchebags and incredibly entertaining at the same time
Example of Group 1:
LAWL! DIE *****! FKN NOOB, U GOT PNT!!
/stuns you, then either destroys you or knocks you off the ledge and laughs at you, then possibly scores how well you dove.
Example of Group 2:
Hail guardian/defiant, I am <name>, and I'm here for your head. It's best you remember my name, as I'm going to teach you the power of the defiants/guardians!
/kills you once, waits for you to react, then proceeds to camp you until you and every other player until you manage to escape or they get bored
Edit, also, there's an RP guild on Sunrest called The Shipwrecked Pirates. They -always- speak like pirates, act like pirates, and plunder like pirates. They're ******* hysterical. My guild, theirs, and 2 others teamed up a few times and did a fullscale raid of Scarlet gorge, the first time we then charged, a mass of 50+ guardians, most over level 40, into stonefield, and right up to the back of Meridian. then proceeded to assault their front door. This lead to about a week of retribution from defiants in general
The second time we managed to pop the Ancient Wardstone boss in Scarlet Gorge, but some random nubs tagged it before we got to it, half of us didn't even get to see it because it died so fast, lol. Then we marched into Scarwood and ransacked Perspice for a while, making sure NOT to attack people near the porticulum (DO NOT EVER DO THIS, YOU WILL DIE. HARD. (Aggroing the porticulum npcs for pvp results in level 52 elites popping and raping face, which happened to us in our first adventure, and many deaths were had)).
The point of that is that the entire time, TSP's members were shouting awesome things like "WE COME FOR YER BOOTY!" "Hand over yer womens!" and my personal favorite, which I saw both before the attack on meridian and the attack on perspice, "Prepare to be boarded, Lubbers!!"
there's also a dwarf-only guild called Clan Ironbeard, but I'm not sure if they RP or not Edited, Apr 21st 2011 3:54pm by Jinte
