It honestly comes down to PvE for those not interested in PvP, I dont see why we need disputable lands on a PvE server. I'd be much happier with them gone all together.
Sorry but Eve wiped out my tolerance for PvP/Pk all together, the only games where PvP on a PvE server I tolerated was Swtor and WoW, mainly due to no looting and on WoW you suffered equipped item degradation unless in battlefield where nothing was damaged. Swtor had an event where it was open PvP but too many complaints by PvE players about being forced in there for the event so they made it PvP if you flagged for it, but added areas where it open though only PvP missions needed you to go there.
I understand some PvE players wanting some PvP, but disputed lands on a PvE server I dont think is the way to go. I know if it goes live and the population increases so much It's not worth the hassle of going into disputed lands for iron, I'll just quit the game and go spend my money on something else. I have no tolerance for games forcing you to go into areas you would never want to go into to advance, Eve was anal like that and I'm not willing to waste time or money on a game with that retarded mind set no matter how much I enjoy it beyond that.
