You might start by explaining how you come up thinking it was a open world pvp game?
From their own website:
Ark Hunting is a competitive business, and what better way to monopolize the market than by taking down your competitors in brutal combat. Ark Hunters can go toe to toe with whatever arsenal they’ve earned, competing in an array of maps and game types.From team-based Shadow War to all-out Deathmatches, there is plenty of fragging to do on the new frontier!
yes you are wrong!
when they talking about open world they mean about game designe not pvp.
only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW

You classify this as open world? You are on channels and it's hard as hell to find a group because it's console UI ported over.

The new quick menu to see people in the area, to form party, to reach party membes in their istance, is working very well.
The game is open world to do quests and missions and arkfalls.

It's instanced as can be. As soon as you enter a mission zone it takes you away from the rest of the world. It's not very open world.

It's called phasing and it's used both by WoW and by SW:TOR, both open world MMORPG. After you have finished the phased main mission, if you go back to the mission zone, you can complete a mission with all the other players in the zone...
Phasing only happens with co-op maps and companion missions. The vast majority of missions are set in the open world and you can get help from whoever is passing by. The UI reminds me of borderlands with added MMO complication but it does need work.
There is NO miracle patch.
95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

i am sorry ,I know you dislike this game,why not just move to play your favorite games!
LOL you have no idea what your talking about. The missons that are instanced are the quick trial missons were your tring to beat someones score and thats pretty much it maybe some of the story but the rest of the game is wide open just like a open world wow.
theres a thing called shadwo wars, but you turn it on and off as you wish so its not real open world pvp with two sides ect
So NONON no proper world pvp.
With videos like this, I can understand why ANYONE would be confused with it being open world PVP....

OP: If you ever played Rift you know that Trion is as good in creating open world pvp as Blizzard is in balacing classes.
Trion-pvp = Afterthought patchwork.
And this is what it feels like in Defiance.
Originally posted by ellobo29 ugh....this makes me sad. sorry i got the wrong idea from another post here (guess i should have looked at the main website) explaning the shadow wars. Made it seem like epic scale pvp where u couldnt turn off the pvp if you wanted too.
Try Planetside 2 I think that is what you are looking for. Basically its Defiance but PvP. I'm digging the PvE focus of Defiance.
Originally posted by Celusios To be honest, this game won't last a year. It's poorly developed and resembles the games you always see on consoles to go with movies.
the feel of playing it and the feel of seeing videos on youtube is different.

Other then showing there is an pvp option I dont see how it suggests its open pvp, then again any rational person would check the feature list.
Its as suggestive as this trailer ( wsg trailer) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vq4DyZkeizU
Heck even this trailer suggests open pvp more then the defiance pvp gameplay : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY6sYnBujQ8
but this interview here is all about Open World PvP mixed in with PvE? lolwut?

Disagree RIFT Wpvp was the best on the market (themepark)when released. PvP dailies were great. It would turn into guild wars. PvP was everywhere in RIFT when I played.

and, the shadow war DOES take place in open world, just on specific areas tho
you can't go around and kill anyone who's pissing you off. so no. actually this game has no open world pvp (aka 'ganking')
