As we all know Player killing in mmos has been a popular addition and many players love it while others hates it. Then game developers notices that Pking has become a problem to those "I hate to die players". To solve that, they gave them what is called a "Safe Mode", where it requires them to be a certain level or have "safe zones" in the games where players cannot kill another player in certain areas. Soon, the player that killed another player may get certain disadvantages and may stick out more in the crowd by giving them red names etc and become easily targeted by other players in the game. But how can we solve the problem of Kill stealing in mmos?
Kill Stealing. If you don't know what that means... (I'm sure all you do) it is when another player attacks the monster you are attacking and they get the credit. Now some games created solutions for that such as, "Most Damage dealt" and "Who ever hits first". But yet it still happens. This is when the player killing comes at the top, some guy steal your mob? you steal his experience. (Ha I wish.) But killing the other player sometimes cannot solve the problem since he will bring friends, has a higher level to come own you, or he can kill you himself and both of you won't end up grinding in the end unless one gives up. I know that some of you will like that challenge while others just want to be left alone minding their own buisness. We all just want to have fun, but if some person comes and takes your kills...its wrong to do that especially when there are ton of the same monsters out there. So how can we solve such a problem? Game developers has all these monster rules setup but they can't do anything about it, GMs cannot ban Ksers because they ain't breaking any rules. So what can we players do about? We can't magically ban the guy because he is taking our mobs. The best way to avoid it is changing channels/servers, party with the Kser as painful as it is(atleast your getting experience), or...kill him.
I know that kill stealing is one of those reasons why players quits games but not every mob out there is yours and there will always be players out there that would love to piss you off by delivering that final hit. I personally kill steal but never continuesly and I often say "I'm sorry " if I do and I'll move to another area.
In these times, kill stealing is just a part of gaming, love it or hate it.
