Yes, clearly the issue here was that the new player was bad in pvp.
A better skilled player would have dodged the ray and then turned and killed him, lost alignment and not cared.
A slightly worse player would have been hit by the ray, turned and killed him within 12 seconds and ganked and looted (oh wait, that takes time), and not cared.
A normal player gets hit by the ray, cannot kill him within 12 seconds and risks going grey at the end bit of it.
But even if he does kill him, still cannot gank him, or loot. So at best the guy is back 30 seconds later to pick up his own stuff.

New players just get shot over and over, not able to act in any sensible way and they wonder why a racial ally is shooting (exclusively) at them. And they dont loot enough, because they do quickly learn that looting gets you killed with how spawn scaling works.

Welcome to darkfall, where stupid shit is defended in the name of teaching you to improve.

A forgive option would be nice for the person you accidentally hit.

Honestly, and I know I'm in the minority, I think there should be a toggle to turn off friendly fire, meaning if the toggle is on and you swing at a mob and hit another player, the player takes no damage and you take no grey.  Only would work in lawful areas.

It would be very easy to use to identify newb griefers and allow newer players to group without a misclick turning  into someone accidentally becoming red.

Would be pretty easy to code too.

Honestly anything that could chase away a new player can't be bad.  Healthy population equals healthy game.

Today, I was finishing off my troll quest and spawn was full of people.

This player Drigo Hunger from <Jungle Kingdom> been attacking/harassing me for a long time.  He keep switching between blue and grey and attempted to kill me many times.

Can I attack him but still stay blue myself? Am I a sitting duck in this situation?

Its more like a game process than a grief.If you think its grief,then pvp games is not for u,fairy kid.
Blue blocking is a normall thing in a pvp game,in la2 was same and nobody was crying.
Yes fix this "grief" and lose 50% fun of game...What a casual kids.

It is intentionally harming other players, with no reward of your own (granted, he steals the PvE loot im sure).
Uber knows they need to make looting a grave split it among the people engaged with the spawn, or something.
But you cant say he's being a helpfull racial ally that you look forward to meeting in a spawn.

That was the intention, with the alignment changes and spawn scaling.

Same old mentality..

That's the only thing that needs changing if this version is ever going to survive.
