Can someone list the successful open world free pvp with full loot games?
You have to define successful. I define successful as a game that is sustainable, therefore having the development budget and game maintenance being able to be sustained by the playerbase and revenue they generate for the game. This way, you can control for niche games that are successful, not just chasing the games with the most players (which often can fail even with a huge playerbase due to their huge costs).
Games that fit this bill, which are then successful:
* Gloria Victis
* Mortal Online
Heading towards success:
* DarkFall: Rise of Agon (since it was released proper May 5, already has a big playerbase and always had a dedicated community)
As a separate category, games which have high hype levels, development has progressed to a decent level, and look to be sustainable in the future:
Future, likely a ridiculously big budget attempt (finally):
* New World (By Amazon, might be 5 years until release though)
You should add to this Vendetta Online; it fits your criteria and I've been steadily playing since 2003. Not many games, AAA or otherwise, can claim that kind of longevity.
I can also think of one PvE only MMO that may not be doing so well: Ascent the Space Game.
At any rate, as I implied in my earlier post, I find the PvP / PvE debate somewhat endless and unproductive; game designers ought to focus on presenting a believable world; focusing on presenting tropes is how genres will sometimes become stuck in a rut, unless you are straight up going for satire.
The original post I was replying to specified full loot. Vendetta online does not have this?
If I am careless, a pirate could destroy my Behemoth XC carrying a 200 megawatt toroidal hyperplasma reactor and claim it for herself.
Equipped items will usually be destroyed when the ship goes, but not always. Cargo survives in space for up to 15 minutes.
