Truthfully, I had no business ever rolling on a PvP server. I only went there because some friends went there, and I stayed there out of habit.

This video is a roundup of various world PvP events on the roleplay server Defias Brotherhood (EU).

So let's talk about ganking and getting ganked -- vile, nasty, evil rogues. How WoW players rage against rogues! You'd think an entire collective of them would be utterly reviled by the player community -- but not this group, which is such a straight-up gang that many of its sap-and-drop victims ac...
