All the quote says is they have pvp in mind. It does not say it will focus on PvP. I'm sure it will be an afterthought like most AAA games.

You can run, not fight, or even not buy the game. Better yet, play as to not put yourself in a pvp situation. You are never "forced to pvp." You choose to pvp.

he is right, though.

fans of the original EQ are PVE players, very few were interested in pvp and if EQN has pvp everywhere in the game that you cant avoid, that will turn off a lot of the fans.

this is coming from someone who played EQ on a pvp server, just being realistic.

I don't see a problem at all.

PvE Server

RP-PvE Server

PvP Server

RP-PvP Server

 

 

As long as they don't have to terrible Battleground-Arena system that works between servers and rewards players with gear, the game will probably do well.

I think this info is about as important as ambiguous twitter statements. Not that it can't be right but it's not anymore telling than anything else being how long ago it was and versions of the game have been scrapped since then. Just hoping for an awesome game whatever form it takes.

This could mean practically anything. You could say GW2 and TESO were designed from the ground up with PvP in mind, because "PvP" isn't the same as "FFA full-loot PvP".

PVP will indeed be an important part of EQN (IMO), just like most new MMOs, but I seriously doubt SOE won't give people who don't want it an out.

My guess is PVP server(s) and "Normal" server(s) with flagged PVP.

This, it's like these people forget that EQ had ffa open world pvp with different rule sets, no problem with that at all. EQN with PVP servers is what i think Smed&co will do, the pvp should be happy with that.

i still think anyone who believes SOE will actually put in non-consensual PVP on their flagship game will be really disappointed.

 

I am glad they are designing the game from the ground up with PVP in mind, so did DAOC, GW2 and SWG.

Most of the arguments spew from the vocal PvPers constantly clamoring that EQN will be all bout PvP with non-consensual open world PvP which naturally gonna stir the pot for yet another pissing contest on these forums.

Most like to have the PvP option but what they don't want is non-consensual open world PvP which is the prime ingredients for a griefing gankfest MMO. 

But I just don't see any company with any sort of intelligence going for a open-world non-consensual PvP model as you are drastically limiting your audience as polls have shown here if they are worth any evidence.  If your making a niche game sure I think that will suite the company just fine but I really doubt SOE will fund EQN for only a niche audiance, they are in for the money not the ideal game for a certain crowd.

But really all that could mean is that they will be making the game with PvP having depth along with PvE.  Too much do MMOs just tack on PvP as an afterthought that really doesn't have any depth.  Queue for BGs or Arenas is not a PvP system with any depth.

EQN will be the next iteration of the EQ series not just a parallel universe.  The MMO genre has evolved so much so naturally a replica of the old EQ games is outdated and obsolete so there will be some major differences and feel from the past titles.

There can be non-consensual PvP done right. I think a great system would be if there is a zone with high valued resources (Be it for crafting/etc, but in my case, preferably crafting) that has PvP enabled in it. No, you can't just unflag yourself and get what you want and bolt out of the zone. The zone always has PvP enabled in it. You want that 2h Axe that badly and need that last ingredient for it? Go into that PvP enabled zone and get out with it.

 

I'm not saying everything that would be good that is crafted has to be done in that method, but i'd like to see some challenge in getting certain stuff.

OP  7/07/13 4:44:12 PM#29

If we believe what was said - that the game was "designed from the ground up with PVP in mind" - then I don't see the server approach working. Because it would be hard to justify putting a lot of resources into doing it right and we'd just have one more failed design to throw on the scrap pile.

 

I think it's more likely to be a pillar integrated with the rest of the game...  now whether that's non-consent, in specific zones, or something else, no one really has concrete evidence and we probably won't get any until Aug. 2.

 

But I'm really hoping for the full open-world stuff. =) For me, that would be a sign that a lot of thought and energy will be going into making it fun.

I really hope they use phasing. You could have both PvE and PvP "shards that phase together in certain areas. That way the majority of the world for both playstyles can be just that but "meet in the middle" for some PvP fun.

Look at PS2. If you made the areas where the bases are the "phased together" areas outside of that could be PvP for that shard and PvE for another shard.

Isn't Planetside 2 PVP everywhere between factions?

I know a lot has changed and they scrapped a couple of iterations of the game since then, but I think this is significant. The strongest counter-arguments against PVP as a pillar for the game have been that EQ was never about PVP and SOE wouldn't risk losing legacy players. But based on the link above it looks like they weren't weren't too concerned about that 3 years ago.

 

This comes back to all the hints SOE has been giving us about how this game is not a direct sequel like EQ2 but a parallel universe - something new and different. And they're going to continue to support all three games...

 

Several people here have pointed out that the kind of sandbox Smedley described needs PVP to work, but we didn't have much to support it other than ambiguous statements from him on twitter. I think this info from the very conception of EQN is important and we should all keep it in mind in order to not be too disappointed if it ends up being the case on Aug. 2.

This is just another example of people inferring based on very little.

Just because they have decided to think about pvp from the very start does not mean that they were not worried about risking "legacy players".

It means they decided to think about the best way to integrate pvp. It does not mean that they want to force everyone to pvp. Whats the best way to integrate pvp in a game where you have different players wanting different things?

to think about it from the very start of design.

Yeah but it would bridge the gap between PvP and PvE players. Better for all.

Sorry, for clarification I was saying take the ps2 system and change it for EQN to make the bases represent the "phased" portion where pvp and pve shards meet and the rest of the world be PvP or PvE depending on what shard you are from.

2010 EQN is the scrapped version and is irrelevant to what the EQN of today is. I wish people would quit referencing the old Fan Faire announcements.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Can we quit with the 2011 and 2010 EQ FanFaire presentations.

 

 

Everquest Next was scrapped about a year and ago and a retool to this sandbox was made.  Nothing taken from those fan shows can be thought of as probable in the game.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

^This......

Smed said they were very unhappy with with the look and feel and direction of the gameplay and they scrapped the whole lot and started again, so if the OP is so willing to take the 2010 comments  at face value then logically it would then apply that it was bloody awful and they scrapped it a bit later.

Problem with cherry picking comments is it cuts both ways, what I said above is an example, the reality is, I don't flaming well know what on earth EQn will be, and that applies to everyone else clutching at straws...

The official announcement is so close now, it really beggers belief that some of you are still so desperate to invent anything you think is plausible to suit your own personnel whims and desires, its in a black box, one that has been the most complete and successful in MMO history, I think any information that was supposed to have been leak/slipped or plain old comments should be taken with a big grain of salt, they have been playing the mysterious hype card. 

There is no God, there is no Devil, nor Angels and Demons, there is only us, surely thats bad enough, for no creature is able to commit such acts of hate and love, sometimes in the same day.

Scrapped almost 2 years ago by now. It was a year and a half ago around SOE Live last year.

So much hostility. Yes, I'm grasping at straws, because that's all we have to go by. If there's no point in doing that then what point is there in visiting these threads at all until Aug. 2?

 

The reason they scrapped plans from the previous fan-faires is that they wanted the game to be "revolutionary" rather than just an evolution of what they did before. That doesn't mean every aspect of what they were going for was garbage. And in my opinion, scrapping the principle "designed from the ground up with PVP in mind" would be a step backwards.
