    The fact that they dare to invade my world is dishonorable enough for me. They should've sent me a letter via carrier-pigeon to announce their visit, ha! winking

    Well, it depends on the situation. If a host stands near an invasion spawn point with 2 summons, waiting to ambush an me (the invader), I am certainly not the dishonorable one.

    From my experience if you're looking for duels then go to the burg or the kiln with an RSS or just go to the arena which was specifically designed for dueling. Definitely don't expect any honour in the forest though, it's always been the worst place for PvP is you're after honourable duels. It's pretty good for testing your skills against gankers though

    If you invade someones world then expect them to do anything they can to get rid of you. The invader is there to make life difficult for the host and use any means to kill them and steal their humanity

    The host is usually just trying to play through the area, minding his own business when an invader shows up to slap him back to the bonfire. So the host is justified in using any tactic they can.

    Also 3v1s aren't impossible to win btw, people should view it as a challenge instead of just saying its "dishonourable" or "unfair"

    I agree with those who say that hosts who get invaded while questing should be able to use everything at their disposal to kill the invader. On another note, invaders are not always there to steal humanity. :blue-orb:

    I also didn't say that 3v1s are impossible to win. All I said was that people shouldn't always view invaders as the bad guys and hosts as the victims. In fact, when I get bored of the Kiln, I stop in the Forest to pay gankers a visit...

    So I recently switch ed from DMB to DW. I can say that I am seeing so many more "dishonorable" people than before. When I was a DMB, most people at the Kiln bowed before attacking. I seldom saw WoTG spamming (though it's not really much of an issue once you know when to roll dodge). I rarely saw healers, and gankers were a bit more uncommon. Now, at the same place (the Kiln) as a DW, I see all of this to a much higher degree, and I've only had about 3 out of 15 bow before a duel this afternoon.

    So why is this happening? My guess is that it has to do with the people in the book of the guilty. I know that a lot of people believe that the book is filled with gankers and WoTG spammers (though this may be true for the top 10 or so). However, many of the "guilty" are just good players who are honorable and know how to kick the butts of hateful gankers who indict them later. On the other hand, gankers and healers probably don't get indicted much. Most gankers are hosts who can't get indicted. Healers are too incompetent to win much.

    Thus, when I invade the "guilty", I usually invade good honorable players. When I just invade regularly, I meet everyone.
