Couldn’t help myself, as the PvP and PvE arguements rage on in all different forms I’m hoping I can perhaps open a few people up here, people who like to, imo, hole themselves up and relax too much when the systems and the people usually in control of some of these systems (towns, wars etc) work against you.
Now I could think up some fun games to be getting on with instead of NW if I wanted to void myself of any form of competitiveness, Terraria, popular console games, for mmo’s you have FF14 and UO (I’m a big fan of this, rich as hell, I barely pvped!).
Why do you feel that NW is, in anyway, catering to you? It’s puzzling for sure, the lvling progressions systems of NW remind me of korean/chinese mmo’s, very basic but at least fit the theme but you guys knew this from almost the set off, so has a lack of past mmo experience kept you playing? what kind of reaction did you have before you started playing towards info and trailers showcasing wars and outpost rush? There was no CGI or cutscene trailer showing interesting enemies or any interesting dialogue so…explain to me what is it that you crave from this game?
Anyway, simply put and relative to the thread title,
PvE only mindset players hole themselves into their private groups and into any instance they can find, how are they interacting with the people who are here to compete while they are off playing Co-Op somewhere you ain’t? We’re 1000% more likely to interact with the starstone ore you’ve put on sale in the AH than the player themselves.
What do they contribute to the games community ingame, company politics, real trading, bantering, what are they doing with all the PvE loot you’ve earned? more PvE?
Their interactions with players could be very similar to an NPC ally.
[ Interacting with the community via PvP, mechnically or verbally is one of the biggest essences of a competitive game, they contribute very little to what is meant to be a massive multiplayer online experience, “Instanced” and “Co-op” is their only goal ]
Change my mind, explain their value.
