I guess there are mechanics you can exloit to flag them too.

Just did some testing on the EU beta servers.
I PKd at level 85, got -720 reputation and went to kill some solo mobs to test if it still was +2/+1 rep for each mob. But the mobs gave me about 20 reputation for each kill. So I only had to kill 36 mobs to wash off my 'karma'.

So I guess this reputation system scales with level. So PKing will still happen at higher levels.

 Sounds more like you want to pk without any penalty at all over what they got now, which is not being hardcore, to me that is pretty carebearish, since you have no fear of dieing or killing in pvp at all period. Even with this system  they have now i would not mind ffa loting as much as i used to in gaming, since when i get pked or i pk i actually lose somthign for my actions.

I said i think there should be a penalty but just because you kill ONE.....ONE person you have to go spend 3 to 4 hours or more trying to remove the penalty? Killing mobs and gaining no xp.

Yeah i said it was carebear because thats what it is. It's such a harsh penalty anybody would be stupid to kill anybody. That would be fine for games like WOW an GW and such but for L2 its a bit extreme. I played it for a couple of years when it first came out and this new penalty is carebear.

And you think its carebear for a game to have ffa killing with no penalty> Really? FFA killing is carebear to you?? LMAO!!

 Yeah you pk'ed him/her no matter if you got lured into it or you just chose to pk them, and as such go do your time grinding it out. You do also relise to most harsh is not carebear as it makes you have to think ( unless your a person that likes to pk with impunity.). Why would you care that you have to go grind even if it were 12 hours of mobs for pking once, as your not a pker, yet it makes the pker actually think as they are losing something unless they trully want to stay red. FFa  is not carebear as it actually makes you think and not just pk for the hell of it, because you can or never worry about getting a pnalty, but no penalty makes it a mere pk fest with no real value in it at all. Also get the idea that ffa and ffa non penalty are different one promotes people actually thinking and fighting in a meaningful manner, while the other promotes gank fest and meaningless pking fields.

He who fights and runs away... misses out on the loot

Don't know what carebear means anymore.  I've heard carebear from everything like hello kitty to Darkfall.  Just about every game i've seen hears the cry of its 'carebear'

They are coming for you!

Just another word that users around "abuse on use" but most dont have any idea what it really is..

Just like "fail game", "themepark", "sandbox", "sandpark", "grinding", "ganking", etc etc...  

 

Note: Neither do i

In L2 this is a word for the people that avoid PvP at any cost. They rather go PvE whole day and never flag or do anything PvP even if they get harassed/griefed/attacked. :P

I said there should be a penalty just not that high. Read it again if you need to. By the penalty being so high most people wont pk so it becomes a carebears game.

I guess if they made it where you had to kill 10,000 mobs for every one pk it would be less carebear than it is.

 I have to agree here. You should be able to kill at least maybe 5 people before you are penalized to that extreme and maybe have 1 kill work it's self off each day or something . It would be so cool to save those kills up to whack people who deserve it or those who are being an asshat! Think about it. Even 3 people would be ok. I know if you can goad someone to attack you back after you hit them then they are fair game. So I guess you could run around nekkid or somethin to make people think you are low lvl since they can't see your lvl?

System is fine, Wrender. As coldices allready mentioned is not so hard after lvl 85.

Game as change alot with GoD expansion and seems they implement a system to avoid pk at lower lvls and maybe wasnt a bad decision because the game is F2P now.

 

After 85, the new stuff, L2 is almost the same as befor in matters of pvp. The only thing i dont agree is we cant delevel anymore, that means if im with 0.00% of some lvl i dont care if i die or not and this is not a good thing.

The Pk system on L2 only works if what we lose when we die really matters so players think twice befor attacking others no matter for what reason.

 

For those who want to pvp theres is Clan wars, Territory war, Castle and fort sieges, Olymp and attack random player and then wait if he respond or not, if yes pvp hapeneds.

For the rest of situations theres PK, we can kill anyone but have to deal with the penalty if the other dont want to pvp.

I like this system

Then I turn red and noticed that i had lost  700+ rep....and the only way to remove my redname is to kill around 700 mobs. Cant gain any experiance till i do.

I dont usually pk...really i never do, but I figured since this was lineage 2 and he was an ASS, what the hell.

I understand there should be a penalty but this is a bit extreme. Shop keepers wont talk to me, teleporters wont talk to me. No, i just have to stay red until i go kill 700+ mobs.

Not to big a deal since i can reroll since i was still low lvl.

Also..I played this game when it first came out years ago for over 2 years so It's just depressing that L2 (of all games) has gone carebear.

You are calling the game carebear because YOU PK'ed a guy just because he was dancing? Does the hardcore "wolf" version punch your sister in the gut when you emote a smile?

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!
