Will you play on a PvE or PvP server ?

    PvE. I prefer that style in my MMORPGs.

    PvE here, especially for the way Pantheon is being designed where PvE is the primary focus.

    I already get my fair share of a certain type of pvp personality in Black Desert so no need to add to the fire.

    However, people should remember that there are also jerks in pve world as well. Came across some of them in Lord of the Rings Online where I wished I had the ability to pk.

    I love PvP... but to me this game just SCREAMS PvE...

    PvE for me ...This game sorta brings back memories of the early days of FFXI where you had to have a tight well planed group to really get anything done well. Looking forward to that again.

    I voted unsure.  I'm unsure if I will even want to pursue this game (beyond a 3-6 month trial), and I'm unsure if the current PvE focus will remain constant through the remainder of the development process.  (I can't predict precisely what developers will do.  I believe that they will continue with their current plan to build a PvE game, but there's a chance that they'll change their minds (and staff)).

    I'm much more willing to wait and see what the final product is before I make any determination, even though I a predisposed to choose PvE.

    Logic, my dear, merely enables one to be wrong with great authority.

    PvE for me. Look forward to the game!  I miss old school games like this.......

    I'm solo (mostly) PvE.  I like PvP and PvE zones and/or flagging.  No forced PvP.

    I would say PVP, but my choice would be influenced by the ruleset and the adequacy of its implementation.

    In spite of being mostly a PVE focused player in MMORPGs, I usually play on PVP servers for number of reasons.

    There's a pvp server?  I thought they said it would come sometime in the future if they are doing well enough.

    Will there be different ruleset servers?

    We are definitely fans of alternate ruleset servers, be they PvP, role-playing focused, hard-core focused, etc. That said, our ability to offer alternate ruleset servers will depend, at least at launch, on how many servers we need and can support in total.

    Cool, already almost 100 people will play this overhyped crap. Good luck to keep the servers alive for at least 3 months :D

    From what I remember.

    No purchase price / Free download.
    Free Trial to level 5 or 10 or something.
    Subscription after that point.

    PvE for sure; it will be Pantheons strength and primary focus. Nothing worse than playing a game for PvP when it's not the developers main focus, it shows.

    Playing: Nothing
    Played: EQ1, EQ2, VG:SoH, WoW, AoC, LoTRO, Aion, L2, DF, WAR.
    Favourites: EQ1, VG:SoH, Original WoW.
    Waiting: Pantheon: ROTF

    PvE to get used to the game and test out each class, then if I decide on one that I like for potential pvp purposes I'll roll on the pvp server with it. My main goal with this game is just to relax and enjoy the grouping/game world/potential progression systems.

    You bring up a good point.

    If this is a game to last for years you can always see how things are going on the others side and PVP later :)

    If this mmo is anything like ALL OTHER RELEASES, developers, as hard as they try, their will be many bugs to fix.......Why torture yourself ?

    Think of it like this:

    If you get invited to a rock fight, why start off by hitting yourself with a rock first ?

    I voted unsure due to waiting for the rule set for the PvP server. 

    If the ruleset promotes mindless ganking I will stick with the PvE server.
  • SinsaiSinsai Reno, NVMember UncommonPosts: 386

    The game is built on PvE

  • kitaradkitarad RomeMember EpicPosts: 4,790
    I like to work with others . I do not enjoy people trying to kill me and therefore if I can choose I choose PvE.

    Waiting for a game that does PvE & PvP right without separate servers.  It's possible.

    90-10 seems to be the norm where people are given the choice.

    If you mean a game that allows people who don't like PvP to be killed by other players, that will never happen.

    If you mean a game that features PvP with good PvE content, you are going to love Pantheon.

    This game will be my PvE only game.  Hope they deliver.

    PVE, I would not even bother making a PvP server, I know some people will play it anyway, but it will be nice if Pantheon could make a point by proving that MMORPGs don't need PvP to be a success.

  • bcbullybcbully Westland, MIMember RarePosts: 9,420
    As usual just like every mmorpg since WoW the pvp servers will be the largest server.

    Wildstar doesn't count lmao
