Its funny to me comparing DF to a standard mmo pvp is like comparing patty cake to fight club.

They have no INSTANCING whatsoever.

And also it doesn't feature matches or timed anything.

It is a mmo
Just because it doesn't have dungeons and raids and stuff doesn't make it not a mmo.

I said persistency AND virtual world. Meaning that you need to have some sort of a world design and not a huge battleground which essentially is what PS 2 is. There is no PvE mobs or any sort of world to speak of, its just a bunch of control points which you fight over, e.g. a huge battleground. And I would not call than an MMORPG, MMOFPS maybe.

Awesome point, and this actually makes me re-think my adversion to the full loot. I hadn't taken into account the fact that the gear isnt as rare and you can make new gear, and its more stats based. Is darkfall even worth touching or should I just wait for the new one which is apparently next month?

 

I guess I just have memories of getting robbed in UO WAY back in the day when EQ was new and fresh. But then again, I probably didnt realize it wasnt that big of deal even then, lol.

Nah you can't pick it up now and it wouldn't be worth getting into given it is going to wipe for the new version next month. Really are just better off waiting for Unholy wars and/or Planetside 2 in all honesty.

 

I must say though kudos to you OP, you came specifying no loot initially but seem open minded about it after some consideration. Most come on here with a closed off mind with regards to certain mechanics and just bat away/ignore people offering their suggestions. Breath of fresh air, hope you find the game you like whatever it is.

Thanks man for the compliments, I truly do value your guys opininons as long as we keep it respectful and intelligent.  I tried Planetside 2 last night, GREAT fun, but agree with an earlier post...it's not an mmoRPG, just an MMO, no sub though will probably buy it to jump in some huge FPS battles.....

 

Finally gonna give in and buy GW2 tonight since I actually have a real life buddy to run through with and he was just waiting for someone to hit the cap with.

Dark Age of Camelot, the game which GW2 based their RvR on, is still miles ahead of GW2.

DAoC benefits from having years to mature their RvR system.

They also have substantial rewards for winning in RvR, which GW2 doesn't have. They have relics, realm ranks, naval warfare. They don't have a cap on their frontier zone, so any number of people can go in and play.

They also have Darkness Falls, and until GW2 gets a Darkness Falls, it will forever be in DAoC's shadow.

 

And, Darkfall also beats out GW2, because of its massive sieges and real time combat.

Yeap. But DAoC is very dated and almost dead.. not really worth to try again. So what then?

Well.. as already said in that thread or the quoted post.. you got GW2, which isnt as good for different reasons as DAoC was back then.. but good enough for a little bit. Or you wait for Darkness Falls Unholy Wars, which is "mature" pvp, but the game could still lack on a lot of other departments. Well.. maybe not, but i somehow doubt it, that they really fix all flaws from the original DF with this new incarnation...

What else? Maybe Eve or Perpetuum.. but in EvE you have a long learning curve, and you are far behind everyone else, and you should spend most probably half a year just skilling up a bit(without doing anything.. it is skill per time), and not so sure about Perpetuum... and with EvE you have to go deeply into a coorp and it is more about the meta game as the actual pvp fight.

So if you ask me.. there is no really great pvp game out there at the moment..

But on the other side, if you enjoyed WoW pvp any of the above may be superior for you. Because WoW pvp sucked, and there wasnt a lot of pvp, not even at the vanilla days.. and now even less. And here a little differentiation.

Did you like the Tarrens Mill zerg fight? Then GW2 WvW will be the right choice for you.. there you got Tarrens Mill fights.. a lot, every day, 24/7. If you enjoyed alterac valley GW2 WvW will be the right choice too, and superior in comparsion.

If you liked more the thrill about attacking being attacked during normal sessions... if you like the unexpected surprise of a fight, and the maybe sometimes even more surprising outcome. You should wait for DF.. there you will get that, and a lot more with the territorial controll and clan wars. It can be epic.. but you shouldnt mind grinding. And you shouldnt mind the dependence from a clan/lot of players.. because as lone wolf or as a little pack you will have a very hard time.

I play at the moment GW2 and i will most probably give DF:UW another try.. but both more of lack of good alternatives.

PS/Edit: And well.. there is Planetside 2. But i dont know anything about it.. never played the original game, nor did i read a lot about it. So how is it? Can someone give a good overview? In comparsion to other pvp mmos and/or games like Battlefield? I guess it is most probably worth a try if someone like me, who enjoyed MMO PvP and the BF series?

 

I tried it last night off a buddy key. VERY fun. Not an mmoRPG though. Good if you wanna jump in a huge FPS halo-esque battle.

When will it release? Will it have an EU release? (EU Server, i really dont want to play with high US ping) Can anyone share a beta key? (PM me) ... i guess i should just read the FAQ o.O

Go to the Planetside 2 Forums on this site, whole stick with buddy keys. There are EU servers as well. Fun game, not exactly an RPG though.

Not on your list, but my preference is Dark Age of Camelot and Warhammer Online.  I find them, even to this day to be my favorite form and style of PvP.  On top of that, it was great that your characters didn't die five seconds into battle.  All I ever did in GW2's Mist World was to constantly run back from my spawn point every few seconds after the long ass run to get to the battle.

My question to you all is, what would be the closest game currently out that could replicate the old wow days, ala 2006 when you could openly gank or get ganked in areas like the barrens?

Basically I want open world PVP, but not full loot and corpse robbing. Is there anything close to this? Im really interested in GW2 but it's not open world PVP right?

I love TSW but the PVP is a joke, I need open world pvp, just minus the robbing corpse part. It was great in WOW on the PVP servers 6 years ago, but according to my colleagues WOW is definitely not like this anymore, even on PVP dedicated servers?

 

Darkfall seems close except the graphics look terrible and I havent heard enough promising things from literally anyone to even warrant the $10, not to mention it's full grave robbing.

 

Again, I really like TSW and the amount of care put into that game, the quality of graphics is exactly what I want, I just want open world PVP along with excellent PVE.

 

Any ideas from anyone are always truly appreciated, please no trolls, just need intelligent thought.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 put Asherons Call on that list and you have the best pvp MMO.

I would totally update that poll if I could, this site does not seem to like any editing of a poll once it's been inserted.

I also remember that while Midgard was the least populated realm, it won most of the encounters, because a lot of tight knit PvP guilds joined that side.

 

Tactics always beat Zergs in well made PvP games.

I played Mid/Guin. Tactics always beats Zergs is right. We'd roll in a group and take out huge zergs back in the day, was good times.

Yamota:

It's not a huge battleground.

Imagine wow
Take out all the instances
Take out all the pve mobs
Put big ass forts around all the villages and cities that let you control them
Make it fps instead of tab target
Add a third side
Let people drive tanks and planes

That's planetside.

It's not a slightly bigger alteract valley on a longer timer.

Ok...

 

Went and Bought GW2......

 

Couldn't be happier. The Dynamic events alone just feel like a huge breath of fresh air, and all the voice dialogue? Beautiful. Love it. I know this thread started as a PVP thread, but I never mentioned im huge into lore and care put into the content, tons of that seen in GW2 AND theres still the pvp to look forward to at the end game. Which we all know could change completely a month from now. 

 

AND no Sub? I'm satisfied.

You may want to keep an eye on Age of Wushu (Age of Wulin in EU).  This is coming out next year that has a big open PvP element.  This might be somethign to watch, unless you don't like Kung Fu.

If you mean SWG Pre-CU, then I agree. I usually do not care for PvP, but in SWG PvP  was consensual (for the most part) via flagging/declaring. It was open world PvP where battles acutally meant something, especially when player city bases (which could represent a significant investment) were vulnerable to total destruction.  Huge numbers of players would rise to a call of battle no matter what type of combat template they had to defend an ally or beat-down the enemy. This system encouraged PvP even among players not so inclined to participate in PvP game play, like myself.

Yes, there were flaws. The concept was fantastic, unfortunately, $OE was at the helm so there was little in the way of solid solutions to problems/issues as they arose - - just juryrigged fixes that usually inflamed the playerbase.

I have no interest in forced FFA PvP, but I can understand there are many that do. I just would not enjoy being gank-fodder and having my corpse picked over.

The Secret World by Funcom hands down ever since the last 1.4 and 1.5 patches. Its got it all Pvp system that matters, can gear and level up entirely through pvp, 3 open world areas for pvp, 3 separate persistant pvp zines called fusang battlegroup A-C which is a lot like RvR in DAoC or colony zone in Knight online.

Has a bunch of minigames, capture the flag, King of the hill....

Cabal wars/ladder every month, monthly duel tournaments with prizes

Upcoming patches 1.7-1.8 will include PvP Dungeons and a new owPVP Event.

Also has a lot of fun pvp missions

glad you are having fun!.. you can always message me "Aerowyn" ingame if you need a hand in anything:)

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Has a bunch of minigames, capture the flag, King of the hill....

Cabal wars/ladder every month, monthly duel tournaments with prizes

Upcoming patches 1.7-1.8 will include PvP Dungeons and a new owPVP Event.

Also has a lot of fun pvp missions

 

You are not choosing your words carefully here.  

 

1.  There is NO open world PvP in TSW.  Fight clubs are instanced and I never saw anyone in them.

2.  There is 1 persistant pvp zone, and that is Fusang

3.  You state "a bunch of mini games".....2 isn't considered a bunch.  Stonehenge and El Dorado.

4.  The cabal wars and duel tournies are player supported, not an in game feature

 

To sum up TSW PvP:

1.  3 instanced pvp zones

2.  No world pvp

 

 

This is as close to purposely misleading people as I've ever seen.

Waiting on: The Repopulation

are you trolling him or something? Pvp in gw2 is a joke and everyone knows it, it can't be more casual and easy.

Every level 3 guy (pve) can start doing battlegrounds and rape everyone by just reading skills once...

 

Imo best pvp game with pvp world is Age of Conan, and Tera nothing comes close to atm.

doesn't sound like you know much about gw2 pvp at all.. you can start sPVP(battlegrounds) as soon as you make a character and get out of the starter tutorial so level 2.. which levels you to 80 and gives you access to best stat gear and all abilities unlocked so everyone is on an even playing field in that respect but you will get smoked until you get good at the combat.. but the fun pvp imho is WvW which is completely seperate from sPVP. sPVP is fun just needs more combat modes
