Fair enough, although that sort of comment is often intended to mean what I said.

I remember, after 4.0 but before 5.0, when I was level 65, standing in front of the H2 dispenser on Coruscant getting and declining *six* duel requests from the same level 47 moron in a row.

He stopped when I announced in /general "Harrassment". To be fair, I meant to announce it in /say, and I got some puzzled comment from other people elsewhere on the planet, but he *did* stop.

Dueling should be available on fleet somewhere.








P.S. Also there should be a tentacle monster world boss in the basement trash compactor, the mechanics practically write themselves, thanks.

Jedi Covenant had a strong pvp community and a lot of dueling up until the server transfers went live. A lot of the pvpers moved to pot5, then to harbinger. I was always able to find people dueling while waiting for pvp queues. Less so on the pub side, but definitely a lot on imp side. It died off a lot when they added level sync because there was no quick way to get to a level cap area that was open and easy for dueling like the capital space ports. When they removed pvp gear people just stopped completely.

I miss pot5....dueling, running around pvping during events, man those were the days.

I always thought I deserved 10/10 for getting these right.

A separate duelling area on the Fleet might be a good idea. It could be a new area accessed by one of the elevators and with a QT point. It could be added as another destination of the CM elevator. However, given how empty the current PvP instances are, I suspect that a dueling area wouldn't be used very often.
A question for "duelers" - should the area be an open free-for-all, or a private instance? Or, perhaps, both - an open common area with an instance off it.

It seems the OP and others are taking this seriously, so I will as well.

I genuinely thought MK-Ultra was making a troll post against RP-ers. Let's be clear, if duels were allowed in the cantina area, that is precisely what would happen.

If they want to create a duel zone on fleet, I'm all for it. Heck, I'd even support another whole section of fleet where it would be FFA -- you enter and anyone can attack you.

Dueling in areas that already serve as destination areas for other activities, though -- oh hellllllzzzz to the bellzzzz no.

"destination areas for other activities" ? ? ? You mean places like the Academy on Korriban, destination area for Sith lowbies on their class missions, but also frequent duelling zone.

You mean -- in wide-open areas where lowbies, upon immediately engaging the quest giver go to a cut-screen and avoid the impact of dueling in a confined space like cantinas on the fleet -- a known RP area?

Why, yes, yes I do.

C'mon Steve, you can choose better examples. You just compared hell-hole Hutta to the rolling hills of Alderaan.
