Bobby started Runescape 2 months ago. After saving for what seemed like ages, he now has a set of full rune and a scimitar. Bobby decides to to PK for the first time with his newfound armor. With his absolutely perfect 50/48/50 melee stats, he heads on out. Bobby meets a Rune pure and gets attacked by him, and is quickly relieved of his full rune. He screams and cries, and vows from that day on never to PK again.

5 years later and 200 lbs. heavier, he's now maxed and has never PKed since that incident. Whenever Bobby encounters a PKer or pure online, be in in-game or on the forums, he becomes angry and pounds his meaty fingers on the keyboard saying "PKing is [cabbage]ty/pures are douches/it takes no skill/real men camp at Bandos and do fetch quests for hours on end."

While this story may not be true for all of you, it certainly has some precidence. Note that I know most PvMers are not like the guys in that quote, but a few are. I'm a long-time lurker of this forum, and I find the personal attacks against pures to be unacceptable. I won't name names, but I remember seeing a topic where the OP was derailed because it was assumed that since he had PKing stats, he was a massive douche. Also, on the RSOF, I've been called "an [instert insult] pure" many times.

PvMers aren't exactly saints either. Anyone who's ever been to Tormented Demons, Daggonoth Kings, or GWD knows that PvM douchebags do exist. This was especially common before the gravestone time extensions. Just like us, you aren't perfect.

I noticed the huge efficiency trolling debacle on this forum, and had it been a giant flaming of all PKers, there would be no consequences. It's like, because you met some douchey low level f2p pure (which, though a minority, do exist), it gives you the right to make snide comments against us as a whole. As a zerker, I fight with honor, and never act rudely. I always ask before I attack, and never rush. There are plenty of pures like me who are mature and respectful.

My point is that we deserve a little bit of respect. I know most of you are tolerant individuals who don't apply to the quote, but for the few of you with bad experiences, be respectful. I shouldn't have to deal with personal insults.

Thank you. Thoughts?

Well pures are douches because they think they can wreck everyone even though they are low leveled. It is a status symbol to some of them. I PvM and rarely PvP but I am not a douche, but Im not nice to people at TDS or in GWD if they try to crash me.

It is, just like say, 99s are a status symbol to mains. Just because we take pride in something doesn't mean we're douches. I like my so called low-levelled stats because they're optimal PKing stats. Keeping a certain combat stat at a certain level is harder than it looks, and it requires certain game knowledge so you don't [bleep] it up.

You can't hate us just because we're pures. That isn't fair.

On my main, I was at TDs, and some guy tried to lure me. When I asked why, it's because "he wanted my fury." I'm not talking about crashers, I'm talking about genuine douches.

Well, I learnt this a long time ago. Probably back in '04, stay out of the wildy. While the new changes and removal of Pvp worlds has rather annoyed me. But I have continued to "ignore" the wildy.

I also tend to ignore pkers, as they do actually tend to be [wagon]. You (the OP), I assume, are a Pker. And quite frankly, I do not know where to stand in this arguement. It just seems like you are shouting "Oh my God, stop hating on Pkers, we are h00man too!" and expect us to stop? Tbh, it sounds like you got butt-hurt (your story explains it?).

Tips to avoid getting butt-hurt:
1) Ignore them, thats what the list is for.
2) Ignore them. You probably ignored the first tip as you like causing arguements.
3) Don't go crashing on people, I am aware it is a game - and yes I am aware that most PvMers just waltz in, but the fact remains that the genuine players who don't have a large surplus of money and 7000+ hours to kill, to grind the money. But be courtious.
4) Negative behaviour is the result of negative behaviour. Therefore, be happy and courtious and we will be more lenient.

Because I am 110% sure you are like every other pker in this game - and the only thing you actually say to other "non-pkers" is "Hop plz!1"

I'm not a pker, never have been. Don't like pking and don't like the taunting/flaming that usually goes with it (I don't believe in honor PVP, even though it exists, it's not what you witness most of the time).

As for deserving respect... I won't hate on pkers for the sake of it, but I won't go out of my way to show respect.

OK?

It just seems like you are shouting "Oh my God, stop hating on Pkers, we are h00man too!" and expect us to stop? Tbh, it sounds like you got butt-hurt (your story explains it?).

I already mentioned I was a zerker. You don't like to go in wildy, yet you say that PKers are [wagon]? That sounds fair. Also, using chanspeak outside of /b/ is annoying, you know what I'm talking about, so stop it.

Tips to avoid getting butt-hurt:
1) Ignore them, thats what the list is for.
2) Ignore them. You probably ignored the first tip as you like causing arguements.
3) Don't go crashing on people, I am aware it is a game - and yes I am aware that most PvMers just waltz in, but the fact remains that the genuine players who don't have a large surplus of money and 7000+ hours to kill, to grind the money. But be courtious.
4) Negative behaviour is the result of negative behaviour. Therefore, be happy and courtious and we will be more lenient.

While I was at Armoured Zombies on my zerker, someone asked me my stats, and I said 80/99/45. He called me a "[wagon] pure," and that was uncalled for. Additionally, I've been civil, yet you called all pkers "[wagons]", unprovoked. The old jerk pure is nothing but a stereotype, in reality relegated to low-level f2p pkers. The rest of us aren't like that.

I could ignore that, but if I said PvMers are [wagon]s, I'd be infracted (or if on RSOF, post deleted) in a heartbeat while you'll get off scot free. I'm not saying you should be, you shouldn't, it's just a double standard. :rolleyes:

Because I am 110% sure you are like every other pker in this game - and the only thing you actually say to other "non-pkers" is "Hop plz!1"

Since when does pking involve hopping? I'm not like "every other pker" either.

Like I said, the flaming has gotten better. If there's one thing the RWT update did, it scared off the 13-year-old kiddos as they posted genetalia ASCII on the forums and got banned. Most of them have moved on to WoW, so they didn't come back this February. Point being, people are a lot more respectful nowadays. I suggest you PK every once in a while, it's good, clean fun (as long as you prot against rushers :thumbsup:)

Sorry for the double post, but it won't let me edit my posts.

'lots of quotes that I should address'


Since when does pking involve hopping? I'm not like "every other pker" either.

Since when does runescape not involve training?

I am willing to accept that you are not like every other pker but that doesn't still change what you could call my prejudices on Pkers e.t.c I am more than comfortable to turn around and say something equally negative about skillers but that isn't the topic at hand.

This is just a case of stereotyping, read up on Tajfel and Lewin. In short: "People’s social identities depend on the groups they belong to. From a person’s perspective, any group he belongs to is an ingroup, and any group he doesn’t belong to is an outgroup."

You are in the Pkers ingroup therefore see positivities, and I am ofcourse in the outgroup. (this is the rants forum, not the debating forum after-all). Much like your belief on PvMer's they aren't saints, to each his own.

In conclusion, my "prejudice" on Pkers has come about from around 6 years of pointing and clicking and while I have encountered a select few of nice people, their numbers have been hugely outweighed by the stereotype, by atleast a ratio of 1:1000+. (Yes, 0.1% of pkers are nice guys.)

Not true. I recognize that some of us are [wagon]. Just like some skillers are [wagon], and some boss hunters are [wagon]. I do have to deal with the occasional jerk, but the nice ones outnumber them. I've been pking for a while now too. I'd say 80%, give or take, are nice.

Every group has its bad apples.

Do you have some sort of grudge against us or what?

I don't hate pures just because they're pures, but I tend to dislike people who are pures without even knowing if they are a pure first. I don't know what it is about them, they just tend to act/speak differently. Same thing in real life, I don't dislike a certain group of people on sight, but I tend to dislike most of them.

Well you made up some false statistic saying that 99.9% of us are douchebags. So yeah, there's a problem.

Yet you also made up statistics saying that 80% of those are very nice, charismatic, mature adults. And I was speaking from my experience with pkers. And yes literally 1 good apple out of 1000, they are the reason why I have public chat set to hide.

Anybody who hates on pures probably just had a few bad experiences losing a ton of wealth to them. There's not much you can do about it; just as there will always be douchebags in both PvP/PvM, there will always be haters who flame and show disrespect because they can't beat you.
