    Where is the difference between a MOBA and battlegrounds ? Or even shooters and battlegrounds ?
    If you like battlegrounds why not play those games who do it best: MOBAs and Shooters.

    There's this little thing called progression - which he already mentioned.

    Why would you even care?

    MOBA's are something completely different tbh, imo they also aren't very good when it comes to Battlegrounds, the difference between a Battleground in a game like WoW for instance and a game such as LoL is so extreme, its a joke, they are 2 completely different things. You could say much the same about the PVP in SW:TOR, you certainly wouldn't compare those Arena's to DOTA2.
    There is a reason why MOBA's and MMO's appeal to very different types of players, for very different reasons and thats because they are completely different games, in what they do, and how they do it.

    By the standards you listed, you eliminated all the ones i like to play.  I don't think the game you are looking for exists.
    Haroo!

    GW2's "spvp" fits that bill perfectly.

    No rewards for winning - that stipulation eliminates all games
    He likes rewards. The 'n' key is right next to the 'b' key whereas the 'e' key is nowhere near the 'o' key. It's more like and makes more sense that he meant rewarded.

    I agree with DKLond: SWTOR, WoW, RIft.

    Unless you like grinding for gear you will end up getting very frustrated by those games, although they are a bit of fun.

    If you just want to hop straight into an arena/BG type game where everyone stands a fair chance and skill and teamwork is what counts then GW2 is the only game like that available atm. You also get lots of rewards for playing.

    However, if you like the gear grind and beating other players due to superior gear then Rift etc is the way to go.

    Okay, first of all, thanks for your honest answers.

    I think I will stick to a mmorpg that comebines somewhat decent pve and pvp and play it for a while...

    candidates would be good old wow, tera or should i give wildstar a second look, now that is launched at steam?

    GW2.. atleast last time i played it.. i think you had to be like level 10 or something but from then on you could do the spvp(battlegrounds/arenas) and not be at a disadvantage. you just pick your build and have at it. more games should follow this imo.
    you also got to pick a reward track which you could work on to get various cosmetics.

    GW2 currently has great class balance in SPvP (not in WvW).  There is almost no build diversity, though.  Look at GW2 and WoW.

    A whole host of reasons.  Just because you like battlegrounds doesn't mean you dislike everything else. Progression, crafting, adventuring, persistence.....  It is not always an all or nothing deal.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    He mentioned in his list that he likes gear rewards. GW2 doesn't really do gear rewards. I inferred from that he likes a gear progression pvp and the grind that goes with it. GW2 sPvP doesn't fit that on many levels.

    If he had said he likes open world or large zone skirmishing I would have recommended ESO and GW2 though. Those still might be options, but from his post it really sounds like he enjoys the instanced pvp those 3 games offer.

    Darkfall new dawn just launched their beta test server. They also changed progression so that new characters are viable faster. Its fps combat and items are pretty easy to come. pvp and crafting focus more than pve, but pve is important for skilling up.

    Neverwinter is another option - the pvp is fun but the bgs are pretty barebone, Tera is awesome but last time I played you had to be a mid to high level to play the bgs. Imo WoW has probably the best designed bgs that i have played and GW2 the most fun/exciting bgs. 

    WAR was awesome, the RvR was pure pvp mayhem, and it also had BGs and gear progression. Unfortunately no longer with us, RIP ;(

    BnS has the best 1v1 and decent group pvp.  Not much variety in modes, but the combat is steller so it doesn't matter.  1v1 is equalized, although skills are p2w/play to win.

    I stopped playing because of p2w rng boxes.  There are also tons of bots and hacking in pvp.  Despite all of this, it has the best combat of any MMO.  It seems also that NcSoft got the memo that we don't like RNG boxes because after 2 big ones in a row, they haven't released one in like a month.
