So I've been playing these games for the greater part of a decade as you can see below my avatar. I only play rather hardcore PvP games so I wanted to just put out MY OPINION of the best PvP games I have experienced.
1.) The Secret World
2.) Aika Online
3.) Knight Online/Empire
7.) Corum Online (was fun PvP while it lasted )
8.) Runes of Magic
I like the secret world because:
TSW somehow created a sense of purpose to PvP. There are 5 faction related Pvp Buffs that people are always stiving for. PvP matters in the game and it can determine a fail or completion on regional or raid bosses. Also they tied it in greatly with the Council Of Venice PvP Lore, Underdog PvP Missions, and The lore of the 3 factions fighting against each other.
There are 3 persistant fusang battlefields which host 75 v 75 v 75 PvP very similar to DAoC RvRvR pvp (facilities with gates and turrent you have to overtake and so on)
They also have 2 smaller minigames:
Stonehenge which is a 5 v 5 v 5 king of the hill type minigame
El Dorado which is a 10 v 10 v 10 capture the flag type of minigame
Also there is Cabal Wars/Ladder and theres monthly duel competitions with prizes.
They also have a Pvp Training arena with dummies you can fight
and 3 open PvP zones you can fight in constantly.
Patches 1.7-1.8 coming soon will add a:
1.) PvP Dungeon
2.) Open PvP world event, capture a relic and defend it with your faction.
Also you can gear up and level up (Get AP/SP) completely through PvP independant of PvE if you so desire.
FYI: They got lots of PvE content too if thats what your intersted in, multiple end game dungeons (8), Multiple open world dungeons aka Lairs (9), 1 Raid so far (2nd coming in 2 months), regional and world bosses as well.
Also the game costs $30, no subscription, no buy to win
2nd I had to pick Aika bc it is entirely based on PvP. You can PvP anywhere, it has fun PvP, castle sieges are awesome (but sadly they rarely occur), Open world pvp is great and I love the relic runs and defenses.
I didn't rank it number 1 bc arenas have just become a win/loss trade for tokens, castle siege rarely ever happens so in the end u just end up ganking people randomly
3rd Knight online's colony zone is one of the most fun PvP experiences I have ever played and its castle siege I'd say the same. if your in a good allaince in KE its going to be a fantasic experience. THe problem falls if you join as a new player and try to 'catch up" its very hard to do the game is very imbalanced to get great gear, you can't solo the good bosses only large guilds can. And gear really matters in this game. Sure you can buy through the cash shop and catch up but your talking hundreds of dollars to be competitive, even at max level.
