    I have been developing three new methods/templates for killing people. Should I turn red and target innocent blues or should I wreck the few reds out there? What's the balance right now? I cant target both, because I dont have enough free char slots and if I kill blues I go into stats and dont burn the counts like a little p*ssycat (no offense o_O)

    Red's are much harder to find in the wild than blue's. For me it's clear: Go red!

    Red would seem the logical choice. They are the ones you'll relish just that much more knowing that they thought they were better. And their red aura shouts: "I want to fight!"

    If you think you can kill reds, then the obvious choice is to kill reds in my opinion. It takes more skill and does a better service to the server, thus all of us.

    I'm not saying PKing blues is easy, people can recall out, use pets etc. But killing blues is ultimately chosen by cynical opportunists because it is far easier than killing reds. An PKK, on the other hand, is a brave folk hero.

    Or just kill both, re-read PFR's guide on recovering from stat loss to see how easy it can be.

    I'll target both, I got a template I'm finishing up as well that will be making rounds, good luck!

    A kill on a blue isn't worthy of a topshots post, but every time you kill a red it is.

    This, most blue are just easy targets and aren't looking to get into anything but gold crop.
    Red on the other hand are always looking for a fight so you will get more enjoyment out of killing them.

    And really IF you do go red. I would just take the stat and train it back if you happen to die. Probably a lot quicker than macroing the "sins" off on this server with mostly easy gains.

    Kill a player right as they open the door of their house. ;)

    There no point in killing reds with the way the bounty system works here.

    Kill blues.

    No point killing blues either with that theory. It's all about the satisfaction not reward, when it comes to PKing/PVP.

    Kill the reds. I agree with the kill reds reasoning if you can't do both

    Well there are a lot of reds who prey on non-pvpers. There aren't many people who prey on reds.

    But, if something preys on the reds what will prey on those whom prey on the prey? Oh my, and what will come of the original prey?

    This is introducing a quandary I don't think any of us are truly prepared to deal with. I say BlackEye should abandon this project and return his work on time travel. I really need a new pair of L.A. Gear fresh of the line.

    It seems like either choice, if done solo, will be a challenge. A solo red often has to deal with pets, and if you hunt reds as a blue, you will often either find groups of reds or very skilled solo reds, and they might be harder to find in general because they tend to move around very quickly as opposed to blue PvMers. I think that both are honorable professions if done properly. I also suggest that if you decide to be PM blues, when you end up killing someone that was obviously a newbie, don't dry loot them, taking their "a magic katana" and NPC plate armor or kill their mount or un-bonded pets. And of course if you are a PK, be red, not a blue PK (super lame).

    Kill a player who steps outside the public moongate guard zone.

    edit: no, no kill them when they port in on the public moongate from outside the guard zone!
