BECAUSE PvE is 97+% of the playerbase of MMORPG genre. Period. PERIOD.
Guess what? PvE is the breadwinner by over 97%.
PvE is where money is.
Welcome to Games as a Business, let alone Games as a Service.
You think I am wrong? Wanna bet? Go run around NW & see how many people are flagged vs how many are not. Now you see.
Want to dominate? The PvE/PvP does not matter then. Make a company & rule. You can do it. PvP companies can run the whole server.
PvE players: Stop complaining about who runs a server & build a big zerg & run together forever. Guess what? Now you are COMPETITIVE.
Guess what? Unless you do that: You are just going to play & have fun. Which is okay.
You want to rule the server? Flag, get more flaggots in your group & you & the rest of the flaggots will run the whole town. Once you & your fellow flaggots run the town, BAM, you can run another town.
Be flaggots & you can win. Otherwise: STFU & stop complaining, k?
QUALIFICATION: Brain. I am a PvE player. I know better than to think I can not take this seriously yet still have serious results.
This is where some of you learn that actually PvP was not scrapped in NW, it was emboldened & given a whole new platform. This is where you learn that, actually, it is HARDCORE PvP; The likes of which some of you have not ever seen before: GROUPED UP PvP players running s*it - grouped as in SAME FACTION & NOT necessarily the same party all the time. It is not only PvP, it is GPvGPvP. Groups vs Player vs… whatEVER you GET what I mean.
PS: That is not what I signed up for. They changed the game to something PvE Like I Like, sent me a key as a reward for testing, got me in. I am enjoying myself still, however, I have not yet found my group to play with so I am probably ducking out “for a while” soon as well. We will see. That says a lot, considering I Like This Game.
They gotta back off the PvP & separate it or else we are - us PvE players - going to be at a loss perpetually. No tax changes or anything else is going to change that. Either you balance between the two (nigh impossible) or you cater to one or the other. I am burning out on PvE. I am not turning PvP; I will play CoD MP instead because it is faster, more skill based/less gear based & I will just go play that instead. They will either get rid of PvP dominance or embrace it - it is their choice, it is not up to me. I am not the boss of AGS. They can make whatever game they want. They can either feed me story/leveling content for 10 years or they can feed other people PvP content for a few years (it cannot live long PvP, they cannot overcome the reality that PvP is an elimination-from-game racket).
I could care less. Yes, could care less. Yes, that is the correct way to say it. I will play what is fun for me & I will not play what is not fun.
