Comments on: I Don’t Wanna Get Off On a Rant Here http://www.thedailyblink.com/2012/12/i-dont-wanna-get-off-on-a-rant-here/ A World of Warcraft Webcomic Wed, 19 Mar 2014 20:48:50 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.1 By: Hurtnalbertn http://www.thedailyblink.com/2012/12/i-dont-wanna-get-off-on-a-rant-here/comment-page-2/#comment-65636 Hurtnalbertn Fri, 05 Apr 2013 14:03:27 +0000 http://www.thedailyblink.com/2012/12/i-dont-wanna-get-off-on-a-rant-here/#comment-65636 I agree with rolling on a pve server if you don’t want to pvp.

However, I wish people would stop trying to initate unwanted wpvp on pve servers as well.

Of course, I’d also like to see spells/abilities split into two sets – one for when you’re flaged, and one for when you’re not. That way the devs could play with “class balace” (something pve players don’t care about much) all they want without breaking my pve toons on my pve server.

You want REAL PvP? Focus it in the endgame areas or on level-capped people. You know, fights that last longer than one hit. On my server, we had a pretty wide-reaching agreement between both factions to leave people alone during initial levelling in Cata, and then focused the combat on those at level cap. The result was a vibrant, active world PvP server, with events every Friday and spontaneous combat around quest hubs, outside cities and multi-hour enemy capital raids nearly every weekend.

The thing is, you are right, in that PvP is an opt-in choice. We simply made the opt-in to PvP at a much more exciting, engaging and entertaining level than back and forth petty ganking.

You know… resilience? That thing you have more of, the more you PVP? The thing that gives people who dedicate themselves to PVP a huge power advantage over anybody who doesn’t? If Blizzard offered free transfers to a decent (read: High pop) PVE server I’d take it in a heartbeat. As it is, I’m not sure how much longer I’ll even play wow. You can QQ the gankers lament, “You knew it was like this when you rolled lulz” all you want, but that doesn’t mean you can make me like it. The game has changed since I rolled here, and so have I.

If you look at a lot of the servers who’s population has shrunk to the point where there is a demand for mergers they are nearly always PvP servers. If Blizzard introduced phasing which meant players could only pvp in level balanced areas then maybe these servers wouldn’t be so dead!
Calling for help from the bulk of you faction is not always possible and is just the rose tinted view of those who are the dominant faction.

PVP is fun when there are 8 players of your faction for every 1 of the other faction. ………………………No derp.

I play on a PvP server, but I’m really not that big a fan of PvP. What appeals to me is the greater sense of honor possible in a world where you can enact negative consequences. On a PvE world saving someone of the opposite faction is more of a ‘neutral’ action, but actually going out of your way to save someone of the opposite faction, when it would only take a single hit to kill them? That actually means something.

Some of the best moments in the game for me happened when I saved someone of the opposite faction, and we end up questing through the rest of the chain or zone together.

People who were at or near the cap were similarly geared to 60s and everyone could participate. Nothing has come close to that since. Blizzard has tried to artificially create those areas, but they only remain active until the majority get whatever gear they want out of the area and move on.
