Honestly i prefer PVE over PVP. the only time i have signed into any PvP is when its meaningful PVP. not just YAY i ganked somone, It's more of a "Yay i defended my Territory".

Because i can.

I don't play PvP oriented games.  Tried to play Aion and when I was doing some questing out in the PvP area, it wasn't really fun having level 50s gank you when you're level 30.  I did some BGs in WoW for fun because I was playing with some friends, but the majority of my time spent playing that game was either questing or raiding.

FFXIV is the only MMO I plan on playing for the long term.  It's planned to have some PvP elements, but they're not supposed to shape the game in any major way.  I'll probably treat it like WoW and dabble in PvP some, but I'll stick to the PvE elements more.

I grew up as a console RPGer with the Final Fantasies and Dragon Quests, so that's probably why I'm more influenced by PvE.  I mostly care about the stories that games have to offer.

So what are these pvp centric mmorpgs ? I would love to try them.

 

I'm still trying to figure that out.  I asked about that earlier in the thread and didn't get much of an answer.  According to this site's game list, there have been about 250 games released since Jan 2008.  Of those which ones force PvP on the players... the only answer given was Aion.  That's 0.4% of the population.

How can anyone complain when they own 99% of the market share?

Eve Online has forced PvP.  Darkfall is forced PvP so is Mortal Online, Archeage seems like it will be (sad to say, otherwise I'd play it in a heartbeat), Age of Wushu/Wulin is forced PvP, and many games have PvP servers.

 

Personally, I'm not interested in either getting ganked all the time when out in the open world or having to run around with 20 people everywhere I go to not get ganked, so these games don't remotely appeal to me even though I love being able to go to an area with large scale PvP if and when I choose to.

 

 

Don't forget about Anarchy Online end game being all about PvP or Warhammer Online.  There were also Lineage and Lineage II and now there is Planetside 2, Mechwarrior Online, Dust 514 and Hawken Online.  I'm sure if I did more research or you guys did a little yourselves (dave & SQTO), I'd find more or you'd realize you haven't a clue about what you're saying.

I'll do more research when you learn to read.  I said forced PvP in the last 5 years.

Anarchy Online is 12 years old.

Warhammer Online has PvE servers.

Planetside 2 I already counted.

Mechwarrior Online is not an mmorpg.

Dust 514 is console game.

Lineage 1 & 2 are older than 5 years.

I've never heard of Hawken until right now.  I'll count it.

That brings us up to 5 games out of 250.

PvE game 98% vs PvP games 2%.

Those PvP game are sure dominating the market.

I'm sorry, why does it have to be only within the last 5 years?  These games are still running are they not?  Dust 514 is still an MMO, doesn't matter that it is for a console.  Mechwarrior is labeled as an MMO, doesn't matter if you don't agree with it.  Warhammer was a PvP focused game, all the servers were the same.  The point I was making is that there are a good number of PvP focused games considering that PvP is a very niche game style, so yes, you are more than amply represented in the MMO genre.

The 5yr limit is logical enough, otherwise it's like saying that plate armour is well represented in warfare. Dust514 is an FPS, Mechwarrior is not an MMO, how can a PVE server of Warhammer be PvP focused?

if you are including FPSs then PvE is the niche play style as they are far more popular than MMOs.

So now you are changing the argument so that it can only be over RPG style MMOs?  Limiting the style doesn't change the principle of the argument, you are still amply represented for such a small audience.  Did you ever play Warhammer Online?  The whole game funneled you into PvP in order to progress and end game was nothing other than instance runs and PvP, but I guess you're going to change the guidelines of the argument no matter what I say.  I was inducted into the Mechwarrior Online beta and they called it an MMO, I don't give a crap if you don't agree.  MMOs are MMOs whether they are RPGs, FPSs or RTSs and you aren't convincing me or anyone else that PvP is being shafted in their representation in the genre.  Whether it is forced or not, just about every single MMO has it as an option.

I believe you think I am Dave6660 from your reply.

I enjoy PVE a lot more than PVP that is the reason why i still play games like EQ2 and Vanguard more than any other MMO on market.

Why not 5 years?  It's a nice round number.  It's long enough to represent a large chunk of games.  They're mostly games with which most current players would be familiar.

Whether or not the PvP players are adequately represented isn't the point.  The premise of this thread is that players of today are all about "ganking and pvp".  How could that be if PvP is so rarely forced on anyone?  You don't seem to agree with the OP either if you think PvP is a "very niche" play style.

While I disagree with the plate armor analogy because for that to work plate armor would still have to be worn on the body in modern warfare (could be an argument for this with some body armor though), I do agree with the 5 year span.

It may not represent the entire MMO market, but it does represent the type of games that are being produced.

I do not limit to MMORPG, but consider all MMO.

Quit worrying about other players in a game and just play.

Good post, And i think this is how many of us older gamers feel. We certainly dont have time for the silly raids (Atleast most of us) 

 

Isn't that what LFD/LFR is for? No more commitment, and politics. Click a button and you have a group. Just join with a few friends and have fun.

Gah, I don't go to Comicon anymore, too crowded, even though I get in for free.  Now, I'm more of a Wondercon kind of guy, already have my tickets for this year.  No, not wearing plate armor.

I am PVE all the way and wouldn't show my face in a pvp server even if someone paid me to. Honestly, I've found that if the trolls and griefers are going to hang out anywhere, it's going to be in pvp areas. And I don't troll, nor do I like being trolled so I hang out in areas where my job is to "kill the pc" literally and stay there.

Now that's unfair. A fair number just showed up to add a snark to the general rabblerabble.

These is "GroupX the Problem?" threads always turn out so well.

Good point. It definitely does have some decent entertainment value.

Then the purpose of the thread is complete it was ment for good entertainment value. After all is that what we are gaming for is entertainment?

Also I think in this era of lazy devs and money-hungry suits, companies have worked out that pvp is the cheapest way to achieve longevity in a game. No need to design tons of content if you can have people pvping in the same area over and over....

 The poll is biased keep in mind... its like asking "Is Obama a good president?" on the huffington post.

How many recent games have open world ganking mixed with PVE content anyway?  People on WoW complain about getting ganked on a PVP server.... seems like a silly issue in reality.  PVP IMO is just more interesting.
