Originally posted by toeblast Im sitting in a bar and enjoing my ale, when some punk start to talk crap about cimmerians. I draw my sword preparing to slice his head of, but for some reason i cant move my sword arm because of "pvp not allowed in this district". GIMME A BREAK! Here i am hoping for a game free for "carebear" elements.
You GIMME A BREAK... PVP in open PVP MMORPG's dont go like this stop fooling yourself.. If some punk is talking trash then I have no problem with killing him.. However, PVP in OPEN PVP games go like this instead... Im outside at my farm harvesting with my 5 year old child when 5 armed punks on horses come by and Chop me and my kid into pieces and ride off into the sunset..... WHy? just because they can.
Funcom got PVP right with AO if you ask me... It catered to both the PVP fanatics and the people who were into PVE... You never had to step foot into a PVP zone if you didnt want to.. Sometimes it was called for and it was your option to do so.. On the flip side if you wanted to PVP there was tons of oppurtunites and battles waging all times of the day for land. I absolutly loved and participated in it every oppurtunity that I had...
I just dont understand why its a must to be able to kill and gank people way under your level for you people.. Why must you kill things that can provide no resistence and challange to you? Perhaps cause your cowards and thats usually what cowards do. I can see if in OPEN PVP if people didnt go around ganking ever lowbie in the area. But lets face it this is the internet, people are going to get away with what ever you let them get away with. PVP in a MMORPG needs rules to curb the Cowardly gankers and force them to grow a pair and pvp agianst something that would provide a challange to them (IE same lvl characters)...

So I've gotta ask, am I the only one here who played Ultima Online?
That game had the perfect PvP system.
Also, I was under the impression this game was going to be real time, you control the sword and such, so levels wouldn't make as big a differnce when PvPing would it?That was one of the things that drew me to this game in the first place, I HATE turnbased games, I loathe them.
very important thread bump
they should start an official vote for!
there are so many opportunities to make a fair open pvp with just a chance to loot !!!
-some places of safety all over the world-possibility to attack only higher lvl players-places where u have to drop ur weapons (so u have to box each other)-and for sure instances for party only quest-etc
im watching mmos for a long timeaoc sounds for me it will be the first one i cant resist loosing so much timebut after this thread im in doubt
we will c
ok theres going to be several different pvp server styles. i never understood why people come to a forum and spread lies about a game that they have no clue about. im not going to quote anybody but several of you are thinking you know exactly how pvp will be in AOC, and that it is going to suck. the funny thing is the devs dont even know how the pvp is going to be, so please explain to me how you think you know how it will be??? sorry if this has been posted here before but here is the official dev statement on pvp...

Carebears are known to have ruined every good pvp game in existance with their childish whining. And that quote is just speculations on what "could" be implemented some day. The key word is "could" you muppet.

its going to be a choice you make.
if you pick to play on a PVP server then you have made your choice.(you have picked PVP there)
and from what i know the none PVP server still going to have PVP it will be more your team VS another Team or guild.(and only when you make that choice. kind of like SWG going overt.)
Originally posted by MisfitZ It's going to be all consensual. Either by zoning it, or agreeing to it via a dual or arena. This has already been stated in an interview, check the official forums at www.ageofconan.com for links to the interviews. FunCom = pansies.
YES PVP IS GOING TO BE CONSENSUAL. that is what they have said.
YOU MAKE THE CHOICE IF YOU WANT TO PVP. THAT CHOICE CAN BE PICKING A PVP SERVER.
IF YOU PICK A PVP SERVER YOU HAVE MADE THAT CHOICE. THERE WILL BE A FULL BLOWN KILL THEM ALL PVP SERVER..
