    If you don't understand why somebody would want to play an RvR only game for years, then CU probably isn't for you. Many CU backers also can't understand why anyone would want to play a PvE heavy game for years. News flash: different players have different preferences and like different types of games.

    Fortunately there were more than enough players who did find the idea of an RvR only game appealing that CU funded. And if it actually is a good RvR only game at launch, then it won't have any trouble keeping enough of those players subscribing to remain open for years too.

    I hope that CU has the same magic for me that DAoC had.  It was my second MMO after EQ.  I thoroughly enjoyed the RvR content.  However, I really liked the PvE experience, too.  I've mentioned before that, for me, the best part of DAoC was that it was a perfect blend of PvP and PvE.  With mostly PvP content, I don't know at this point whether CU will hold my interest for the long term.

    It will have PvE, it's just limited to The Depths. 

    So, if you are going to play, might be worth waiting a month or two after launch and then just pick the most dominant side on a given server, thus increasing your odds that The Depths will be open to you. That said, we don't yet know the scope of The Depths, the PvE might be really minimal.

    CSE hasn't yet revealed details on how realms gain entrance to The Depths. People often make an assumption based on how Darkness Falls worked in DAOC that the most powerful realm will also control The Depths the most time in CU. I'm not sure that's how it will actually work though. In fact I hope it's not.
