    IMO having the same old cookie cutter invasions over and over is pretty boring. Getting guard whacked at least adds some lols to an otherwise fairly mindless event.

    No solution from me other than looting a blue corpse should turn you gray rather than guard whack.
    If someone in your area is a noto pk - then that's on them for being a dbag.

    As for opening up the cities for PKing on a PvM event. It's a bad idea and will kill the event - so if it gets opened up, it should be for limited times only.

    Arguments of more blues vs reds are mostly invalid. The numbers that really count are coordinated forces vs disjointed targets. That's why the brit bridge is always a royal blue cluster fuck right?

    Just my piece - it'd be fun for about 20 minutes and then subsequently kill the invasion event from the PvM/RP/whatever perspective.

    If you didn't get guard whacked there would be 10 people following you around waiting to steal the loot off the monster you just killed .....

    how about....

    u still flag but not instant whacked? only downside is dickheads just running around looting everyone elses kills. so in the long run..i say keep it the way it is. i manually click the corpse to make sure its grey to me before i loot. no auto loot..or trying to hurry up and loot without making sure. ive never been guard whacked.

    imo...its the price u pay for being careless?

    Not sure if turning looting rights off is the correct way to deal with this, but I fully agree that this is an issue. Last time I lost an entire slayer armor because I took out 200gp out of a coprse that I killed... with another corpse overlapping. Followed up by 10 vultures looting you dry. Yeah, that was pretty much the last event I bothered with.

    Hmmm is it possible to add a client option that would prevent looting corpses of other players? Or give a warning/confirmation like you get with attacking innocent players / taking moongates in town / etc.. ?

    You can turn on this window:

    "Query before performing criminal actions" shows a small window with a green "okay" and a red "Cancel" button.

    You are right, except that it's easily overlooked by the shitload of razor spam messages and other things happening.

    Yup, that's the one I'm refering to. But it doesn't apply for criminal looting.

    right..im agreeing with u. im just saying there is a warning..but its not in gump form. tbh..i dont know why it wasny originally gump form. i think it should be added and also have the option of disabling it just like the attack gump that can be turned on or off.
