    so this new pk system really ****s. everyone wants to pk and its normal. so what do we do when normal things become abnormal? well we find a way around this piece of **** pk system. how? we farm reputation. i know that for every red player kill u get 360 rep pts. so roll new chars, make them 20+(or bigger mainly 10 lvl below ur main) them pk some poor ******* and u get red. then u go with ur main char and ur reputation red char to any area u what and farm the redpig.ofc u can use low lvl chars that u allready have.but u get reputation points at every 8h/ per char and must be at most 10 lvls below u.
    2 red chars give u 720 rep= 1 pk for u
    feel free to improve my idea

    so many topics about it but i wanna know also if anyone can confirm it. if you kill pk's and get + reputation, when u kill a player you won't become red and just loose some rep ?

    rtfm !
    or to be more clear the patch note !

    if you have a green name, you can do pk without getting red name (but you earn a pk point).
    so green name = go go go pk !

    well i killed 2 red guys yesterday (both around my level) and still i didn't get any rep. points at all. so i'm not sure how this works.
    for clarification (it was 1v1 fights so there is no possibility that someone other last hitted those red guys).

    they may have been killed before by someone else, then you don't get any reputation point.

    a pk guy gives reputation maximum once every 8h according to some test.
    so if someone killed him in the last 8h, you don't get any reputation.

    i found a nice way to grief people if you're red.

    - first you need to work your rep back up to -1 or -2. ( good luck with that)
    - next, go find a player that has alot of dot attacks. (good luck finding one on his own, without other players around)
    - since you're red, he'll attack on sight (most probably)
    - once he gets you all doted up and you're about to die, kill a mob quick.
    - your name will turn white and the player dots will kill you. theoretically he should turn red.

    i tried doing this yesterday since i turned red for the first time but i messed it up. i was nervous and i killed the mob way too early (with only 1 player dot on me and like 75% full hp...).
    i'll try it again next time to see if it works.

    normally i wouldn't be talking about ways to grief people, but i just really don't like this system...

    the best solution would be to make it how it was previously.

    impractical, by the time the attack happens, will be at least at half.

    problem is, that you will need to pk in order to protect raids/etc. what if clan war goes bad, or just simply person that ks just to make you angry, and lose time.

    it's impractical, but i don't really see what innova can do about this. it's ncsoft choice, thats how it's going to stay now.

    this pk penality is only pain for low levels, at high levels this will be same as in old chronicles.

    yes this is what i heard also, my awakened friend confirmed he clears his bad rep in about 5 minutes so it shouldn't be too bad later on. ^^

    i killed a pk and then i pk-ed some other player by mistake, my name became white (instead of red) from green and i lost all rep that i had.
    thats how it works.

    the new system is a failure, no need to discuss that - anyone with only a decent degree of rational reasoning knows that.

    if you want to raise your voice on that matter, i suggest you do that on the ncsoft l2 forum. follow this link to get to the thread where you can vote against the new pk system. as of now, 88% of the community are already against the new stupid pk system. you can also follow this link if you solely want to discuss the new system.
