First off I am a Pvp’er, I enjoy the challenge and politics of it. I’ve played Asherons Call(darktide server), eve online, ark:survival evolved(which I still do with over 8k hours played). Etc etc.
I’m not understanding the huge amount of butthurt between the two groups and the " x group of players is an inferior player" argument.
I hate to break it to you PvP’ers out there but unless you play a different game than the New World we’ve all been playing you have gasp, PvE’d.
You have done quests , mined, chopped trees down, killed rabbits, killed hundreds of mobs, looted chests. All of which were done to reach lvl 50 or 60 in order to PVP and in the 1 in a million chances you ONLY did your covenants PVP missions you also, you guessed it, did PvE activities.
Unless you are playing a battle royal game where there is no leveling to be done and you are immediately thrown into action to fight people then you are a PvE’er as well as a PvP’er.
Also let’s be honest there is not one player in NW that is a PvP’er that is hating on PvE’ers who is doing 100% only outpost rushes and wars. The game mechanics currently don’t allow this playstyle. You still have to have money to repair, pay for health potions…or have potions if you make them yourself. You still have to get better and better gear and one third of the invasions/wars are verse corrupted anyways…npcs…PvE.
On the other hand with the way this game is currently setup PvE’ers don’t have to do a single thing related to PvP if they choose not to. They don’t have to flag up, they don’t have to war, they don’t have to do outpost rush. They can sit on the porch of their houses all day long, role-playing and petting Barkemedi’s…or however you spell that Damm dogs name.
Bottom line, this game does not give each playstyle exclusivity. It’s not a PvP game nor is it a PvE game, it’s a PvX game. Where it gives each playstyle the chance to enjoy being played.
You can argue all you want about PvP zones or PvP only servers. Or that it’s unfair that a player comes and steals your iron ore vein from you without the ability to do anything about it. Boo effing hoo.
So instead of slamming each other’s playstyle and insulting each other try remembering that just cuz you like playing a certain way doesn’t mean it’s the right way or the better way.
Also remember we support each other. PvE players support you PvP players via providing gear, health potions, materials and resources to continue your PvP playstyle. You PvE players remember PvP players support you via capturing towns and upgrading those towns to continue your crafting and giving you a house to use.
We are all connected and not either playstyle is the superior way or the right or wrong way.
Get the f*ck along.
