OP  5/20/13 2:47:17 PM#1

The Elder Scrolls Online team has made some interesting decisions when it comes to the game's PvP content. In our latest ESO column, we take a look at the pros and cons of those decisions. See if you agree (or disagree) with our thinking before joining the discussion in the comments.

As I said above, I’m pretty excited that a lot of the folks who once worked on Dark Age of Camelot’s RvR are heading up the team working on Elder Scrolls Online AvA. Brian Wheeler was one of the ingredients that made the magic happen in DAOC.  He was also part of the WAR team, but we can’t put that game’s failings on one man’s shoulders, so we’ll just sidestep it and chalk it up as a learning process.  At least we know ESO will have three factions as opposed to the inherently broken two.

3 factions will always be the better choice and contrary to anyone' opinion, just because PvP is segregated off into its own zone doesn't make i any less world PvP.


Wish people would understand there is Instanced PvP, which what most people think of is when they say "GW2, DAoC or TESO doesn't have world PvP". Then there is Zoned PvP then there is open world PvP.

I'm just grateful for the 3 faction AvA.

Everything else is secondary to me. Now, if the fighting measures up to DAoC I'll be one happy camper!

What makes 3 factions any less broken than 2?

I did battle with ignorance today, and ignorance won.

To exercise power costs effort and demands courage. That is why so many fail to assert rights to which they are perfectly entitled - because a right is a kind of power but they are too lazy or too cowardly to exercise it. The virtues which cloak these faults are called patience and forbearance.

So no other pvp options instead of crappy zerg vs zerg vs zerg? I just lost my interest... Wildstar now are our only hope for good MMO with MMO content, not single/co-op rpg published as MMO.

It won't be anything like as good as daoc pvp wise.

Still I expect it to have better pvp than wow clone games like Wildstar.

Ill likely still play it as enjoyed DAOC also , but my favorite PVP battles have always been I impromptu ones like Tarren Mill escalation mass fights in vanilla WoW , or east common fights raging on the Zek servers in original EQ before that.

There's just something about a battle being able to break out most any where in the game world that makes true world PVP more fun for me.

3 factions used to work with the other generations of MMO gamers for some reason. Now if you watch the most modern 3 way largescale pvp game (GW2) you will see how the newer generations of MMOers (WoW and newer) treat 3 way matches.

3 way should be balanced by having the two lower/weaker realms working together to take out the top realm in the match, however in todays mmo culture I have noticed it usually devolves into the bottom two contenders fighting each other just to avoid "losing" or last place while the top realm/faction ends up widening the gap.

In my example I am referring to GW2 mainly since that is the newest game to try the 3 way method, perhaps the GW2 flaw was from ranking the realms which makes it super competitive and no one wants to drop down tiers due to pride over having epic battles.

For me 3 way battles are still not done right and personally I think TESO should avoid any kind of ranking system to hopefully let 3 way matches have the intended balance outcome and not a ranking race.

Greatest threat to society is letting casualties of puberty reproduce.

DAoC's RvR was the only form of pvp i ever enjoyed so this is a plus in my book. I can also deal with not seeing the opposing faction as no good can come of it. Too many people playing mmos for it not to be flooded by newbie ganking or harassing jerks with names that break immersion. I hope they have a very strict naming policy for players and guilds. No Ipwnus,EL33ts or urmomismyepicmount.

Probably all those points were raised in design meetings.  I would hazard to guess there was at least one more point raised.  The core IP they are basing the game off of was pure exploration/single player.  Even modded there were never any pvp maps, activities.  If they wanted to tap that potential market (and one would assume they do since they used that IP) in any meaningful way a pure pvp focus would probably have defeated it.


Consider the debate when basic systems and pvp were announced, at least 1/3 of participants from various media stated they weren't even going to give the game a glance, let alone try it out.  Like I said I'm sure that was a factor of their thinking.

You summed gw2 up perfectly with the wors "match"

That's the problem with WvW, its too artificial and "gamey". It does indeed feel like a "big battleground", like all the "wow owpvp was the best" people like go point out. The best thing they could do for WvW is to get rid of the tournament element and the leaderboards, they should also make the maps more natural, eater than like a huge wow battleground with their symmetrical layouts.

Rvr done right like daoc and planetside 1 doesn't feel like that, it feels much more organic.

Yes you're so right, another wow clone rip-off is what we need... *smh, just go back and play wow... tired of these trolls who love these wow spin offs... because in a weeks time they'll while and say it's not wow and be right back in wow..

While I love large scale pvp myself, I have to agree that removing pvp with other factions out of Cyrodiil just seems like a way to cater to pvpers and pve'ers without choosing one over the other. This is why I'm looking forward to CU so much, as a hardcore pvper atleast I know where they stand.

Dozens of MMO's, RTS's, FPS's, etc.

"At least we know ESO will have three factions as opposed to the inherently broken two."


So instead of the inherently broken two, we have the inherently broken three. What an upgrade. This game needs to ditch the separate area/alliances idea, and go with 1 "server" with open world PvP, and one without. Those who want to PvP all the time can go to one and do their thing, and those who don't can go to the other and do their thing.


Developers always want to tie end game PvP into getting endgame PvE stuff because of the lack of participation that normally comes when you try to force people to PvP when they don't want to. DAOC proved it didn't work, yet those devs are still trying to come to grips why.

Also, while I find it arcadey, lots and lots of people play WvW.

Then you've got ps2, which has 3/4 million unique logins per week according to sonys march report.

So there Is definetly a market for 3 sided pvp.

Daoc was only "2nd" for a period of 4 months, and even that was neck and neck with UO. FFIX matched it in its first 3 months, and then beat it, and SWG launched with nearly 130% of Daoc's subs at the time.
