PvP Poll

Simple enough.  With all the speculation swirling about EQN, figured we would get an idea of MMORPG members feelings on the matter.

    Are you talking full loot? Poll might need a few more options.

    Plenty of things in the world that will be trying to kill me, why do I want to play for FUN in a world where some 15 year old a-hole is waiting to just keep ganking me because i'm a lower level then him?  Would not be fun at all, and i'd never go back, that is even if I downloaded it if it were open world pvp where it could be a total gankfest.

    lol same here.

     

    Whatever number we end up with, we need to take into consideration that a ton of PC gamers and console players will eat this up even if the traditional EQ fanbase abandons it.

    same.

    also, poll always needs a "show me the results" button.  without it the poll is pretty much invalid(so to speak).

    Even without full loot, I figure non-consensual PvP implies enough negativity for some while others find it most appealing.

    Kind of moot.  

    There will most likely be a servers with different rulesets.  Some will probably have safe zones, some may not.  There may be the possibility of item loot on one, but not likely on all of them.

    agreed!

    The poll is simple enough, and the results can easily be seen in the numbers for and against along with the number of people who have voted.  You know, "keep it simple, stupid".

    Yes.

    But it won't have "non consensual pvp" for those who don't want it.

  • CalmOceansCalmOceans BergenPosts: 2,273Member

    Everquest has always been a pure PVE experience where little kids and brats you find in PVP games were shunned.

    If EQ Next has any form of forced PVP at all. I will not touch the game.

    Fans have been playing these games for over a decade, none of them are PVP fans.

    I play RPG for the roleplaying and lore, not to fight with little kids.

    No one wants a lawless world full of gank squads. That's boring.

     

    Put proper systems in place i.g. Wushu, and you nightmare scenario will not occur, and ganking will not be an issue.

     

     

    Harsh penalty for senseless murder, reward for killing with purpose. That takes systems.

    i played the original EQ for well over a year and loved EQ 2.  

    also enjoy the benefits item destruction and full loot can have on a game's many various systems.

    fans of EQ aren't any one single type of person. 

    EQ fans cannot claim their game is purely a PVE or PVP based game with any intellectual integrity.  

    Regardless of that argument though, this newest iteration on the IP owes nothing to the original EQ in any way and is not chained to its systems or ways of doing anything.

    Nothing more hilarious to me than the assumption that all players who want pvp are "a-hole" sociopaths under the age of 15.

    Jimmies definitely rustled over the pvp.

    Sandbox baby.  We gonna build kingdoms, and fight for them.  Don't be mad.


  • tank017tank017 Glendale, CAPosts: 2,192Member

    Not a fan of it..

     

    but im pretty confident it wont have open pvp anyway.Or at least it'll be relegated to specific servers.

  • CothorCothor Houston, TXPosts: 163Member Uncommon
    I guarantee this game is not going to be full non consensual pvp, there will also be no looting of players. People need to stop panicing and acting like children. 
  • SiugSiug TallinnPosts: 1,236Member Uncommon
    No. EQ has never been a PvP game and and if EQN is then it's not the EQ I'm looking for.

    I think it's safe to say there will be servers with different rule-sets. I'm not a huge PvPer myself, but I did enjoy the PvP on Tallos with the racial open world PvP. I would like to see that again. One server full blown PvP, one server racial, and their RP server where you can only have one character on it and it needs to have an actual name on it.

    The only problem with world pvp is that it is great amazing fun but the carebears will QQ and eventually everything gets nerfed.

     

    It happened in UO and like every MMO , the loudest whiners always get their own way in the end .

    Well I think that the people on this site that are expecting Open World FFA PvP for Everquest Next are deluded.

    Why?  Well it is going to be first shown to the audience at Fan Faire.  This event which was renamed SOE live in 2012, only to revert to its original name again this year.  The reason given for the name change was that SOE was more than just Everquest, the name change indicates that this public relations strategy has been abandoned.

    So who will be in the audience at the big reveal?  Everquest and Everquest II diehards (as Smedley said "our loyalest fans") and what will those fans stamp there feet and cheer when they see it at the launch: Norrath and loads of PvE.  What would have Smedley carried from the stage and thrown in the nearest pool open world?  FFA PvP.

    SOE are going to want this publicity event to shine and form the basis of a solid lead up to launch .  So while people on this site (nearly all of which will not be going to Fan Faire) may prefer to forget Norath, Everquest and love the idea of PvP they are not the audience Smedley hopes to grab the minds of on August 2nd.
