I voted, but I'm skeptical that we are an unbiased sample.
My fuzzy-feeling experience is that online forums tend to skew pro-PvP because people who dislike adversarial interactions are likely to eventually tire of arguements.
Originally posted by Tokken I am happy with PvE only worlds.
I enjoy both, Though I would have like a 4th option for the poll.. Because I dont necessarily need both in the same game. Especially, if the game just has PvP because thats what all the other games have.
And there are various way of integrating both systems in a game.
Notably there are games where PvE'ers are derogatorily referred to as carebears, but where they are the workhorses of the economy and also are the long suffering prey of 1337 skillz PvP'ers that dont even care they arent gaining anything, but are happy with ruining someone elses day.
These games also have players that PvP by PvE'ing with force...
Other games are more forgiving and have an iron curtain that completly, or almost, divide the PvP part from the PvE part.
Might have been redundant to point that out. But I wanted to say that there should be enough players for all sorts of variations of the mix or pure PvP or PvE.. Well maybe not pure PvP going by the poll at this time.
i want to play rappelz but in philippines server.
i know you guys are PROs when it comes to rappelz.
can you give me any idea on which i will choose? PVE or PVP?
which build is good?
i heard rappelz philippines is good and PVE server is a newly opened server.
i also heard that they are giving free items for new players and transfering players.
Does any of you tried playing here? http://www.rappelz.ph/index.html ?
Any reply will be appreciated. Thank you!!
The word "myth" seems to be now a label for "you have got it wrong and its time to have your mind readjusted."
PvE and PvP both have their place in a MMO, balancing the two is difficult and has led to antagonism. So the issues between these groups are real. Over the years the importance of PvP in MMO's has been sidelined for many reasons. I do not see this stopping, PvP will become even more marginalised in the MMO's of the future.

I don't know I'd call them a rarity. True PVPers are only a rarity within the context of casual (MMORPG) PVP. The overall PVP crowd is pretty sizable (even though it still doesn't outnumber the singleplayer/PVE crowd.)

The actual PvP crowd doesn't play MMOs, they play FPS, therefore building an MMO for a group of people that largely don't even play the genre is silly.

I am heavy PvE. For me, PvP isn't as much skill based in most games as it is "CC fest". It just doesn't really feel that skilled based at all. Newer games like Tera do add a little more in that field but it still has flaws. In the end classes (which i feel should NOT be sacrificed for their varied nature for balance) will leave room for imbalance.
That being said, I feel its wrong to cut out pvp completely. PvP is a form of content. It can actually be enjoyable from time to time to go about killing people. I actually enjoy BEING GANKed, least when its someone I can actually stand a chance against, to me its quite fun to turn the tables and get the ganker back.
No game I feel is well off neglecting all pvp or all pve. It only helps to give a game less to do. Sure, focus heavily on one or the other, but you should never fully neglect one. I don't think there is a single person out there that has focused on one and has not had any fun playing around with the other. We all have our own tastes and moods and sometimes a taste of something we don't usually do can be quite entertaining and fun.
I play console fighting games competitively and MMOs cooperatively.
I don't really despise one or the other

As for the first bit, that's basically what I implied yeah (although they also play other non-casual (non-MMORPG) PVP.)
For the second bit, Planetside 2 is an MMO built for PVPers (although to be fair there's just enough vertical progression to PS2 to repel serious PVPers.)

I can agree with this although I play competive PC PVP games to like PS2.
I really wish not every game developers felt the need to shoehorn in PVE or PVP elements into their game where they don't fit. Not every PVP game made needs PVE and not every PVE game needs PVP. It does nothing but muddles the game systems and deverts valuable attention from focusing on making a really good game that does one thing well rather than a meh game that does both medicore.

Have to agree, i tend to mostly play PVE, but also PVP on a very casual basis, and mostly in seperate games, for PVP i tend to play PS2, and for PVE i play SW;TOR etc, as i find the PVP in most mmorpg's to be mediocre at best, for instance the PVP in WoW and SW;TOR is very underwhelming bordering on silly. Even in Eve, i don't focus on PVP, but on a lot of other activities, and only engaging in PVP if wardec'd etc. The PvP in Eve is far from mediocre but it just isnt really possible to be a casual PVP'er with any degree of success, being in a PVP corp in Eve is not a casual undertaking, you really need to be able to devote a lot of time to it, as Eve is probably the most organised PVP game i've ever encountered, and if you do have the time, also the most rewarding, by contrast, the PVP in PS2 is intense, but, supports casual play, and dropping in for 30 mins to an hour is acceptable. Perhaps this is why i am not so impressed with ESO, as the focus on the PVP aspect seems to be very much at the expense of the PVE aspect of the game, i am probably not the target demographic of ESO though, despite my being a long time fan of the TES games.

Nobody congratulated you on making a biased poll, barely seeing your agenda vote win, but then claiming victory.
So let me be the first: grats!
You've stepped into a brave new world of statistics manipulation!
I'm mostly a PvE player. I don't really understand the point of fighting against others in video games. Every so often I play PvP to see if anything has changed and that's about it. I'd much rather be working together to bring down something I find to be malicious than some random guy that presents a challenge to me. I don't do duels, arenas, and most often I don't support castle sieges. Coding for both PvP and PvE is a mess anyways.
I played WoW up until WotLK, played RoM for 2 years and now Rift.I am F2P player. I support games when I feel they deserve my money and I want the items enough.I don't troll, and I don't take kindly to trolls.
Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.That way, if they get angry, they'll be a mile away... and barefoot.
This is a very bad analogy, I love realistic games and love marvel vs capcom 2
This doenst mean I would prefer simulation version of mvc2 game. Than the original one.
Or that I would prefer a arma 2 mod on the mvc 2 setting (with simulation and etc..) than arma 2.
