After 60+ pages a "meaningful" death penalty was never defined clearly, but many false claims were made, including mis-quoting anti-dp people to support pro-dp claims. Good fun all around.

Anything that could be said here was probably already said in the other thread over the last 2 weeks.

With the way PvP works now a death penalty would just add an arbitrary punishment.. Especially considering how fast you can die when 5 enemy players focus fire on you.

There was no misquoting. I quoted some people with ideas in the first post of the thread... thanks for linking it.

As far as DP in the long run it will definately be needed if this game is supposed to have a future and an end game. Open PVP will eventually be in place and without a death penalty it will just be a grind.
