More BioWare/EA/Lucasarts fail.
Hate to burst your bubble there buddy but this isn't the first occurrence of a player doing this and sadly it won't be the last.

Players like the 50 mentioned have been doing this for as long as there have been opposing factions in MMOs.

It's nice being on a PvP server actually. I haven't had to deal with anything like this. I just know when I see red, I attack. I know I've been attacked but I expect it.

No tricking. I have yet to see any camping which is strange.

Of course it could be because I'm Imp and we outnumber reps 3:2 on my server.

btw I'm level 50.

My impression is that it seems like more shady stuff goes down on PvE servers. On a PvP server it's straight forward and everyone knows what to expect. This isn't any fun for the jerks in the world, they want to tick people off and the best place to do that is on a PvE server where most people want to play nice.

...
What?
Nice, twisted logic, but of all posts in this topic this is certainly the most wrong one.

Being forced to PvP in PvE area might be considered wrong, but no option to PvP on PvE servers? It'd be killer feature for me.

The hit should depend on the caster's flag, not the receiver. The way it works in Rift, CoH, or most any other MMO.

Just another needed fix for Bioware. Derp!

Buffing an ally or a group member that is flagged also shouldn't flag you too. Also quite annoying.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Boohoo, you probably lost more time mashing refresh on this thread than you did dying in game.

Same. I'm on a PVP server and while I've been ganked a couple of times, but that was my fault...got caught not paying attention and ended up dead.

Of course, I've done the same thing to other people, too.

Still...it's part of why I chose a PVP server. Always gotta be on your toes. I guess a side benefit of that is I'm never tricked into fighting and don't have to worry about being tricked into fighting.

You should also not flag for PVP if you buff someone from your same faction who is flagged.
Yep, someone should probably make a thread about it in CS too. Be prepared to get flamed over it, but just ignore them.

It's very simple. If you are not flagged, you can not heal those that are, nor hurt those that are. They can't hit you. If you AoE it would hit the mobs, but not flagged griefer.

As I said, Rift does this well.
