    PvE for the most part but once you get some good gear and high levels you want to duke it out with other players to see how strong you really are sometimes. ;)

    PVE, mine is due to a medical condition, my reflexes are no where good enough for pvp or competitive at all. Even some PvE end game stuff is a no go.

    I dont like PvP just to PvP I would like it to mean something to strive for something like in DAoC those who control relics or keeps get benefits or bonuses.

    I chose PVE, why because when you make an MMO you want people to stick around...PVE promotes community and working together to accomplish specific goals whether resource gathering or AI Raids....PVP does absolutely nothing but put division and argumentative states into "A GAME" that causes people to eventually leave.
    Latest research shows the opposite: competition actually promotes community, particularly when it is structured competition (i.e. pvp zones, arenas, battlegrounds).

    PvE. Simply because PvP tends to bring out the worst in people, not because of the gameplay.

    A good balance of both is needed but I feel like mostly the pve is a bit more important since thats the basis of most games. @MikeB

    Firstly that wasn't 'latest research' but a single non scholarly article. Secondly the statistics, which were somewhat simplistic, did not support the statement that 'strong' correlation had been found. Yes they found some correlation in the data, but the author then jumped straight to a conclusion of causation without any analysis. Worthless article really.

    Interesting results of the poll so far.  So far, it supports my belief that PVP is not as popular.

    Yes but that is with regards to a specific type of MMO but if you look at other types of games PvP is very popular .

    Strictly PvE

    I have zero interest in PvP

    That depends a lot on the game though, some games are really fast while others are way slower.

    I don't think I played a turned based PvP MMO but there is no reason why someone can't make one and there you win purely on brain and no reflexes at all.

    If it just is reflexes that is the problem then there should be a few slower games that would work for you while some PvE games might be too much as well.

    The numbers are always like this, which is still baffling why so many new mmo's are PvP first focused and rarely are there open world, non theme park PvE focused mmo's.  Almost every sandpark mmo over the last ten years has a high, if not first priority, on PvP
  • hupahupa Member UncommonPosts: 59
    I think PvP should be left out of MMORPGs. Play mobas, fps shooters, strategy games for your PvP needs.

    PvP is beautiful, to defeat another player brings such happiness...such bliss. I wouldn't play an mmorpg if I couldn't kill another player or be killed(It's fun either way in my experience). If someone wanted  PvE why not just play single player rpgs?  Online PvE = grouped up bots, people fighting monsters alone....

    friends who have more time to play the game than you, so when you log in they are fighting monsters you have no chance against or perhaps even in an area you have no access to. In which case you barely if ever see them again or just become a question pig constantly private messaging them what to do when you hit a wall in a quest or whatever. In which case you find new friends and it's rinse and repeat.

    I can't see the fun in it. Even when grouped together to take down a difficult programmed monster it is so blah. You beat the monster, another group of people beat the monster, everyone eventually beats the same monster lol. BORING AS HELL. Well anyway, that's just my opinion ya know? Maybe there is some side to PvE that I am blinded to that all the PvE/PvX lovers can see.

    So what PVP MMO are people playing that is any good? Not MOBAs, shooters, etc

    To me most mmorpg pvp is blah, if I want to fight against worthy opponents,  I play mobas or fps. Most mmo pvp cater to the wolves that are afraids to fight on even playgrounds.

    What are considered worthy opponents? What is an even playground? Is it numbers, skill or a combination of both? The thing about being attacked by 5 people in an mmorpg is that you can also attack 5 people back if you bring 4 friends with you....it's really fun stuff. It's just that most people cry that 5 people attacked them and do nothing about it for some strange reason when they have a supposed list of so called friends they play with. I guess they don't back each other up for whatever reason?

    If you mean high levels beating on the low levels you can find that in any online competitive game where brackets/tournaments etc. aren't concerned lol.  Mobas aren't really my thing but I played online fps games HEAVILY in my life and must say there is no even playground. Either you are a player or more short on your team which is then an imbalance of numbers or you and other team have the same amount of players but their level of skill/experience is higher. In which case it is not an even playground. Unless I'm misunderstanding what you mean by even playgrounds and worthy opponents.

    The problem with mmorpg is that you add yet another level of in-balancing possibilities. While mobas and fps are certainly affected by player skills, in most mmorpg you add another layer of artificial bonuses to some players. If there is a vertical progression, be it levels or weapons, you cannot have fair fights.

    So do you actually get your fun when fighting 5 vs 5, or just killing that lone pve er with your 4 friends ? What do you not like about Mobas ? They are the truest evolution of challenging pvp.
