I never understood what purpose people found in killing low level players with 0% chance of fighting back. You don't gain any in-game benefits, the only thing you gain is some sadistic pleasure in forcing someone to run back to their corpse or spirit rez. I've never understood this and never will. I can understand fighting players your own level in world PvP, as it is challenging and fun, and you get honor points for it. But low levels? Strange world, strange people...

Some people actually find it fun in whatever weird way. That's about all there is to it.

Its fun to gank someone of equal level. flying around on a 90 one shoting lowbies is boring.

I never understood why people complain about pvp on pvp servers but to each his own.

If ganking noobs is PvP, then 1-shotting grey level mobs is PvE.

There is no reward to 1-shotting gray mobs though.

There is the reward of pissing off some random guy on the internet cause you are camping his level 23 alt. Even if you don't see it, you KNOW he is raging.

I like to do it as a way of telling that person that they chose the wrong faction

Because it's funny. If you don't think so, I don't really care. I do it for fun.

If there's a level 20 player running by, I'll emote at them and shoot an instant at them. Oh well. Life goes on.

Its just how the internet works. Doing something to piss someone off who cant do anything back online is always the better option then doing something to someone IRL who can punch you in the face. To most people at least.
