So, I like to Gank *End topic*


I kinda feel that ganking is ridiculously OP, not for taking keeps, but with just 3 or 4 people i've held off re-inforcements which have either allowed the zurg to take keeps or defend them, even though I really enjoy Ganking, I would like it to be nerfed a little. Anyone else feel the same or the opposite?


Gone to a better MMO, soz guys, it was fun.

If by "ganking" you mean ambushing unexpecting players, then it's a fundamental part of player versus player that can't really be nerfed. Those three or four people in your example are providing a strategic advantage by choking reinforcements from the enemy's main force. The opposing side however can counter this by having their reinforcements travel in large groups, taking a different path to avoid the gank group, or try to run the gankers off the route counter-sneaking.

It's a tactic that is useful in this sort of wide-ranged PvP, and something that must be dealt with through PvP if it's occurring.

Endaros Ilmori - Buoyant Armiger

Taren Jucanis - Imperial Deserter (Used for The Black Shroud RP)

Agreed, the ganked have to learn how to adapt
to enemy tactics instead of waiting for the next nerf.

But with tactics and counter-tactics i dont think that anyone will ever be able to beat the gank-squads

Loners and stragglers will die. There is safety in numbers. An organized assault will neutralize gank squads.

If Ganking were easy, then everyone would do it... it's the hard that makes it good...
