Killing Diggers in Prime Roots

And im sad to read even somes GMs think differently ( most of the time the american/uk GMs ), so guess its a matter of culture, or alliance?

Yes, it is a matter of culture. Atys is not Aniro. Since Merge, you now share a server with people who don't play the way you do. And to give you a little perspective on how much conflict those differences can cause, what some call RP-ing is what others call bullying in pretty much the same way as my attempts at having a conversation are getting called rude and harassing.

If you think I've been rude or violating CoC for harassing people then you should do a little introspection and think about the fact that YOUR actions are perceived the same way. It seems I struck a nerve with you (anda few other folks). Now think about how many times you've done that to others over the years then ask why it's okay for you to act out but others can't.

However, the PvP lately ( a year? maybe more? ) start to feel like a MOBA game, mean that there is no RP or any scenario that start a combat or terminate it.It is fight just to fight, for the action; without building RP or history behind.
Maybe because Ryzom is missing PvP actions, so people that like to play Player versus Player do not have the patience anymore and just want some fun; compared to others time on server ( Aniro? )

I get that. However, I would like you to understand that even among those who RP as seriously as you do, there are those who would never take up arms against another homin. It is possible to RP without PvP. In a similar vein, you may have noticed that there is a bit less open violence than there used to be a few hundred years ago.

Societies evolve. That's just as true on Atys as it is on Earth. And since each homin on Atys is connected to a human on Earth, it isn't really a surprise that the path of one world follows the other. While the past may have been full of folks who accepted being the tareget of violence as the price one pays for being alive, the present is not the past.

That said, my opinion is quite different when it comes to fighting over limited resources; namely Sups, OP mats, and bosses. If there were an area that had those but no "common as dirt" mats to dig then I might actually buy into your "Diggers are the enemy" rant from earlier. While I don't feel that someone should risk death merely for wanting black/white armor instead of red/blue, I feel that resources that actually provide some sort of strategic advantage are a different matter.

I also wouldnt mind seeing a few more tournaments (offical and unofficial) so that those who miss their old lives of warfare can still use the martial skills they worked so hard to perfect against opponents that can match tem for cunning and skill. I don't think PvP is inherently bad, merely that a fair number of PvP-ers are a bit anti-social about their choice of targets. And if you take a small step OOC and into the meta, you might realize how that can affect Ryzom as a whole.

At the end of the day, we do need to find a compromise. Something not too violently anarchic but not too care bear. Something that allows us all to do our thing. And no, making Atys into Aniro is not a good compromise.


Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.
