I hate it. I can't stand it. I wish it were yanked entirely from the game.
Here are my reasons: 1) it creates unnecessary and repetative code 2) it's infinitely harder to balance, 3) it generates 90% of the complants on this board, 4) I don't like dealing with people who take pkill too seriously and get hurt feelings over it.
Does that mean I won't go to great lengths to try and make it a balanced system? No. I have my opinion, and I'm willing to maintain that opinion while working towards a goal established by the entirety of the immort staff. Since that includes pkill I will work towards establishing a well-balanced system that does include that, when (read: if) I ever decide to seriously work on anything here again.
Just in case anyone decides to distort my opinion, seeing as I've vocalized it on a few occassions and it eventually gets back to me somehow carrying tons of other baggage with it that I didn't say.
