    This is always the wrong thing to do since it takes longer to start the game back up than it does to just respawn.

    I think it is acceptable when a person is intentionally not fighting you, they've led you around the world 3 times and just run and hide, thy don't even try to fight you and are just trying to waste your time if you are looking to do pvp.

    If it's an invader you can just go to the fog gate of course.

    If it is a serious glitcher/hacker doing something that makes them unkillable. An example would be for when it was around, if you invade a world to have 3 dragons infinite stunlocking you and not killing you, just log off and force a disconnect.

    Frankly the only reason I find plug pulling/signing off acceptable is when you've been invaded while trying to duel and the invader just runs off and hides, waiting for you to show up.

    You're there to fight, not play hide and seek.

    So, basically, I think your decision was a bit wrong, OP.

    For the most part I'm with everyone else when it comes to pulling the plug. I don't do it often.

    I've only done it once with a hacker that had infinite health in PW. I ended up getting too wrapped up into the game that I forgot that I had a pizza in the oven. I turned my PS3 off and bolted.

    So really the only time it's acceptable is if it's for food.

    Food; the ultimate exception for everything.
