This really frustrated me to no end (especially 'cause he was lvl 40 and I was 45) just to watch helplessly as he killed my "soldiers". I had actually wondered before if this would ever happen to me...unfortunately neither him nor I were in pvp mode so I didn't have the opportunity to creamate him. Your thoughts?
Scary stuff!
If a Game can (and does) elicit such strong emotions.

- By all stars!! It is a game! The NPC's are not people.
- The NPC's are not even paper-clip figures. They are
computer-code generated pixels on a screen.
- The NPC'S can NOT die! Neither can your own Toon.
- Something that can not die can not be slaughtered,
therefore, how come that people can associate themselves emotionally
with something that has not concrete existence??

I guess the real cause of your frustration has been revealed in the statements you made...

Sorry, but I have to conclude that you deserve to be frustrated.
I agree with some of the other posters. Create a Character on a PvP Server
Happy frustration to you
Having Fun, not frustration
