Killing Diggers in Prime Roots

WRT the idea that the Rangers are there to enforce peaceful behavior, nothing could be further from the truth.

The Rangers were formed to combat the Kitins, and to a lesser extent, the Goo. Anything that divides hominity reduces our strength against the real enemies. However, as Wuaoi pointed out several times, the Rangers as an organization only intervene with diplomacy at the National level, the quarrels of individuals are their own business.

Being judgemental is not the same as harassment.
Gidget did not say that PvP, per se, was sociopathic, but that deliberately and continually picking on those who could not defend themselves in PvP (i.e those in digger gear) was. I would have said "being an ass," but I try to be moderate in my words.

It is not fully consensual, in my opinion, if certain regions that one would normally go in quest of the improvement of their skills are declared to be inherently PvP. That is a matter for the game designers, however, not debate here.

If I recally correctly, however, the sparking instance for this thread was an attack on a digger on the surface, near the capital taking advantage of the cooldown time for PvP. Notwithstanding that the cooldown time is built into the gameplay, that strikes me as contrary to the intent of "consensual PvP."
