Originally posted by arieste Yeah, no FFA pvp except on special servers, though i'm still holding out hope for single-server technology!
omg you sig! that first quote is awesome!

Yep. There is no fairer compromise to arrive at a medium that will satisfy all play styles. I am so sure that EQN will have a flagging system that I am willing to bet the house of every MMORPG.com poster on it.
Originally posted by Aelious Great PvP? I hope so and bet it will. Full OWPvP in most areas? Nope Unless there are seperate servers I can't see more than 30% if the world OWPvP. I'm still holding out for seperate server types that merge at specific battlefronts based around deity factions. 30% of the world should be good for part time PvPers
Why not have a 30% zone for PvE? A Place where you can quest until your heart is content.
That's it !
SOE still have all the SWG design documentation. EQNext is SWG set in a fantasy world !
OK, maybe not...
Anyone thinking this is going to be a FFA PvP only game is fooling himself. And if he thinks it's going to be full loot on top of it, he's fooling himself twice.

I went with FFA PvP not because I believe it will be implemented, but because I want it to be implemented.
I hope they "aren't that stupid" to go with restricted pvp or no pvp.
I've already said numerous times that the game will NOT force players into pvp.
Not sure if I would call that "restrictive" but since that is the closest choice that is what I put.
It's amazing how some people show their preferences in these polls, in some cases they almost drip with disdain for the "other side".
Bad poll options
But it will definitely not have FFA PVP
I think there should have been a broader choice range like:
1) PvP FFA2) PvP in certain areas3) PvE with duels and consensual PvP4) PvE and PvP on separate servers
I know devs have said things that lead us to believe PvP will be a part, but nothing is too clear yet.
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!
What is the difference between FFA PvP and Restricted PvP?
Does restricted mean not possible everywhere?
Restricted. I predict perhaps faction based.

I just pee'd my pants. That never once occurred to me till you just mentioned it
Another PvE vs PvP poll?
Let me save you all the time with this poll by providing the obvious below listed outcome. History has proven that no matter how many polls are created involving PvE vs PvP, in however manner of form or shape, it will always generally boil down to ...
Only PvE = 15%
FFA PvP = 10%
PvE with consensual PvP = 65%
Pie = 10%
There. No need to keep checking back for results with bated breath.
I'm betting on something similar to SWG system, but probably more "hardcore". EQ faction alignment systems has (used to have?) a threshold where you ended up KOS to faction NPCs. In EQN, this would be KOS to players of that faction too.
This mean that players could be neutral to everyone or KOS to everyone depending on their actions. The flagging would come in play when you're not KOS yet but want to attack players from another faction. It also mean that killing players in another faction add negative alignment with them.
People who don't want to PvE simply have to not use the flagging and avoid negative faction alignment points.
