    Back then people would stalk you while you hunt and steal from you while you hunted and got their kicks letting you know they were there doing it.

But in most cases the people that tormented them continue because they know they can get away with it on an easy mark. If the low level character tries to stand up for themselves they stand no chance. Does this sound amusing and fun for someone that stands no chance?

    I myself was pick pocketed leveling up quite a bit back then. I was given cursed gems to help defend against it. But outside of that there wasn't much I could do about it other then ignore it. Takes a lot of skill to just thieve from lowbies...
    I've never worked with or dealt with a single pickpocket that does this, personally. I can say at least from my experience, stealing from low level characters is a complete waste of time which is immediately obvious because they have nothing but crap to steal.

    And again, you say back then. So you are trying to "fix" something that you had almost no issues except for how many years ago? Back when there actually were low level people...lol

    You're welcome to hit me up on Discord if you want to hear stories. Almost all of my RPAs have involved pickpocketing as part of the RP.

(not all of them but there are some for sure) We all play the game for a reason i suppose.
    Man, poor Oliver Twist is such a big bully isn't he?

    He literally does. The whole being bullied and griefed because of pickpocketing is a myth. You literally just have to close your bags to end it entirely, and you learn that your first day playing the game.

    Sounds like a really fun RP opportunity to me. You probably wasted the opportunity by pointlessly getting all upset about it instead of realizing this is just a game. What, did they steal 2 kill's worth of loot? That really set you back a lot didn't it?

    And now it's 3 thefts a day. Now the "bullies" have turned to stalking you and doxing people, and yet, those same people are playing to this day.

    Come on man, the vast majority of the community is capped. The 2000 pound gorilla in the room is not pick pocketing.

    I'll just let you reflect on that one for a little bit.

    Bro, you're the one calling people bullies.

    I'm just being honest, being honest does not = being a dbag.

    Lol, getting stolen from is not comparable to having a character you've spent over two decades on being massively impacted by a change. That's like when Renaden tried to compare loss of items from theft, to loss of items that you drop.

    so, 719 nerfs, 519 nerfs, everything going to smrv2 arent comparable either I suppose? All of ELR, all of the lore changes over every profession pretty much empaths got their world changed with the scar healing thing and reinvented themselves also.. LMA becoming a thing the list is probably endless of things I don't even recall..

    out of all of those changes/ most of them being good for rogues.. I just find it a weird hill to die on or be depressed over.

    If that somehow was a large part of your character's roleplay, I could see being very upset over it. Especially if you had statistical proof that any of them have any issues.

    If pickpocketing was actually being abused and people were being griefed at a high rate by it, I would be much more willing to accept the other side of the argument, as they would have a reasonable problem that needs to be corrected.

    I think a more apt comparison, is if you nerfed those spells again, and then again, and then one more time, and then you tried to defend them not getting nerfed yet another time.
