I can only assume you haven’t played that long, then.
I remember back on Wiccana the last time that solstice quest was up, there were people from trollish guilds who would stand in tortage on 80s and cause those Vanir Avengers to spawn and they would attack anyone nearby. For hours at a time. They would go as far as to stand at the rezpads and effectively gank lowbies for hours on end.
I remember farming beguiler blood on a conq, dropping my fire banner, and having some person from Shadowdancers run scorn into me numerous times, waiting until my banner had dropped, because they wanted to farm the instance I was in.
You haven’t had lagspikes that have caused death? Then I can only assume you spend the majority of your time sololy gaming on the game, as these happen frequently in 6 mans, raids, rf, you name it. We have suffered near server wide “lost connection to server” messages from them only to log back in and find that we had ofc, wiped.
Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it, or the words of the numerous other people who complain about the lag and can also provide horror stories of how crappy people on this game can be. shrug
