    As you would know if you were a real PKer, the effect dying has on a lot of people is that they go absolutely hilariously frothing at the mouth insane with rage. Ragequits, FIGHT ME LIKE A MANs, frenzied suicide attacks, torrents of messages, forum posts, the works.

    It's awesome.
    I have fifty one kills to my name, a decent selection of them seasoned combatants, some of them solo, and not one of them has ever thrown a pissy fit of any caliber at me for killing them. Not even when I used retardation.

    I might complain on the forums if I get killed but I know better than to rage at people for text pwning my text mans.

    It's hard to get back to that climate. Back in the day when most of us were earning our street cred, no one could cure. You had to be a defensive genius and an offensive genius. 
    That attitude pretty much amounts to "It's not fair that the average newbie can cure my offense! If you don't have a bachelor's degree in computer science, then you don't deserve to play this game." As someone who couldn't code her way out of a wet paper bag, I'm glad that things like Whyte's system and later the server-side autocuring actually allow me to participate in the game without being forced to learn things that I'll never have a chance of understanding.

    Just looking at the 2004-2005 era forums will show you that back then, when only a few people could cure, folks running around PKing everything that moved for any reason imaginable was a huge problem. Not a lot of people could fight against someone that knew what they were doing, and that kind of power was abused to no end. It didn't matter if you were a noncombatant; so much as "being part of a guild that my guild's at war with" was valid PK cause, upheld by the administration.

    Having at least a defensive system in place does well to partially mitigate that level of bullying and make people's gameplay experience a lot less painful.

    And auto-attacked things for you, auto-sold corpses to their respective buyers, and then auto-pathfinded you to the next bashing area once you're finished up at the current location.
