So, something very disturbing has come up that makes me wonder if there should be a way to determine who is attacking you when the line is anonymous.
For instance, a serpent has recently decided to use issues as a means of attack. They are pretty consistently getting close to fights, but there is no way to know whether he is really the one attacking, so it's generally not worth attacking him, because it's quite clear what the outcome will be. In addition, someone can blackwind choke/snipe/etc while someone is bashing and there's really no way to know who it was for retaliation unless they get killed, so once again issues come into play.
Now, I trust the playerbase and the admin enough to understand the differences in these situations, but a player still has to use a lot of caution when 'guessing' who attacked them.
Why not add a long balance or eq ability to inspect the last anonymous attack done on your character to know who it was. This could avoid a lot of trouble in the future.
