a gaming term that, in modern usage, means to kill another player in a way that can be considered harassing, trolling, or griefing.

Often, this activity occurs out in the persistent world, performed upon a player who is just minding his own business - often a player that is significantly weaker in power, and has no interest in a pvp contest. Often involves multiple people ganging up on one weaker player.

Not to be confused with ambushing or assassinating strategic targets in a structured pvp setting.
"There's a dick rogue in STV ganking lowbies, anybody wanna help?"

"Shit, I just got ganked outside the raid, gimme a minute guys"

"Oh man, I ganked this lowbie DK so hard that he jumped onto a level 1 alt, and now he's spamming at me! He's so pissed, LOL!"
