@ZhaoKuro Not true, you cant avoid pvp if you NEED to go to pvp region because it's the only place you can get iron nodes. This is basically removing the players rights not to pvp, now they have to choose between advancing or getting involved in something they dont want. This will become a serious issue once we go live and population increases, we all know pk players play pve server with pvp areas so they lurk and hit pve players forced into pvp regions to get materials they cant find anywhere else. . Seen it on eve and other games like it. In UO they would get noob players to follow them with the promise of giving them some starter gear then lure then into pvp zone and gank them.
I played Wow for over 7 years and only did battlegrounds due to guild requirement. In over 7 years of Wow I only a handful of times went into pvp area and that was forced on me due to quests or events. So no not every pve player at some point wants to do pvp, I know I dont and a few of my friends wont even play a game with any form of pvp in it. I usually wont go near one either.
And where do you get off saying someone is crying out loud, my comments are based on over 20 years of gaming, rather arrogant of you isnt it, I dont think this should be a venue for such or is it your intention to cause an argument???
Runequest was easy to be killed by other players and you usually lost all your gear due to length of time it took you to get back to your corpse, at least here thats not a problem ive encountered, really sux just as you reach youre corpse it and all your runic gear vanishes.
I dont have a problem with the disputed zones, but I do have a problem with placing key resources only within these zones, yes I'm referring to iron nodes which are only available in disputed zones, I've beta tested games and know full well that on release and population explosion from it disputed zones with certain resources only available there, players not wanting to go into pvp zones will just quit the game after theyve been killed and looted a few times.
The law of pvp is always attack a far weaker player, that way you get to loot them and not the other way around, that is PK, and I dont differentiate between pvp and pk, ive played in many games and never been asked to duel by a lower level player always a much higher level player.
It's human nature to win and not loose, hence there are players who just want to have some fun and that fun does not include attacking or fighting with other players, This is why we go to Pve servers, this is why we question the need of forced pvp areas on these servers and use the comments "if they want to pvp let them go to a pvp server". Some of us dont mind pvp areas as long as we dont need to go there for a gaming reason. Some when learning there are disputed zones on a pve servers that players need to go to get resources not found elsewhere will not play the game at all. Thats there choice and the games loss.
