I agree wins and losses should be the main way to earn "renown". Was just suggesting that offering an alt method to start gaining some, so we don't have people getting frustrated after loosing 10 matches and just leaving pvp behind. As far as a system that would encourage preying on the weak, I would suggest that perhaps under a set level you would gain ZERO on a kill.... Say 4 levels below you or something. So if you where say Rank 9 and your opponents where rank 4 you would get ZERO renown for killing them. Winning the match yes, but killing the lower ranked players no. Perhaps something like 100% on level +10% renown for each level above you... and -25% for each level below you ?
