In WoW, I believe Ganking as a group of Horde/Alliance killing someone, since it's the only way to kill them, in a metephoric way of speaking.

And if someone 'ganks' you after respawning at your corpse, that's not the right term, the correct term is 'spawn rape'...Thanks
Person 1: Those damn horde keep ganking me!
Person 2: Well, I believe it's the only way to kill you.

Seeing as you may be a valuble threat to most people, they need to gank you inorder to kill you.

An imaginary means of killing someone 'unfairly' in WoW.

Ganking, by definition of the game is quite impossible, because killing people of the enemy faction in any way, even if looked down upon is the object of the game.

If ganking wasn't the intention of the developers, it would be taken out. Plain and simple.
-'Can you help me? This level 60 is ganking me!'

-'No, because that's what he's supposed to do'

-'I don't understand!'

Incorrectly used word in warcraft (Dota, WoW). Noobs mistakingly think infinite form of gang=ganking. Some even use the word "gank" itself even though the word gank means either to steal or to hurt one's feelings according to dictionary.com
N00b_Sux0r: "these guys are gay, they keep ganking me. "
Me: wtf is "ganking"? you mean "ganging"?
N00b_Sux0r: yeah, whatever. Doesn't matter, someone set us up the bomb.
