1. Large open world continent for PvE and a large open world continent for PvP. Letting guilds build castles and keeps that can be sieged. Maybe a flag system depending on SoE. Some mixing of PvP and PvE. Lots of open world PvP and tends to feel sandboxish. Kinda like Archeage. 

2. Ever race plays together in one open world. You pick a faction and PvP for that faction on a PvP map set aside from the PvE area. With castles and keeps that can be sieged (maybe again build by guilds). When your done PvPing you come back to play with everyone from every faction. Something like Rift. 

3. GW2 Model: You play PvE with your server and no PvP takes place anywhere. Q up and fight 2 other servers in a battleground map thats so large it almost feels like open world but not really. Every few weeks you fight different servers. PvP and PvE never mix.

4. ESO model: 3 faction model done like DAoC with a twist. Castles and keeps that can be sieged, open world dungeons and a mega dungeon the winning side of the PvP battle gets to use that has phat loot. Has towns with quest hubs and crafting nodes for top level crafting on this battleground. Has so much PvE on the map it feels much more like open world but again not fully. No lowbe hunting. PvP and PvE never mix unless you want to PvE on the PvP map.

5. DAoC model: 3 factions fight on a battleground with castles and keeps that can be sieged. Instanced dungeon with wicked loot the 3 factions fight to control and own that has phat loot.The race you pick sets what faction you play with. PvP and PvE never mix and you play how you want. And you always fight the same group of guilds from the other factions. You get to know their tactics and this creates a real depth in the PvP but still not really open world.

6. FFA PvP, everywhere and any where. What else they add like castles and keeps that can be sieged, is up to SoE but its more about PvP can be anywhere. PvP and PvE mix allot and may or may not have a flag system. may or may not have factions and sometimes safe areas. Like SWG, EVE and Linage 2.

7. WoW model: PvE and PvP servers with contested zones on the PvP servers and more contested PvP zones the higher level you get. Even on PvE servers you must deal with the flag system and forced to PvP, there are some well known methods for doing that.

8. Other: Explain 

9. No PvP system at all, lets make it all about PvE so skills and classes never have to be balanced so we have pure PvE. 

Another thread with old ideas. This game is supposed to be an evolution of the genre, not more of the same. Hence the game getting scrapped multiple times. If people listened to the interviews of Dave Georgeson and such, they would know that this game is supposedly bringing a lot of NEW IDEAS to the table, hence the black box it resides in currently.

As much as you may want this game to be a little of this, and a little of that, if it is more of the same it will fail and this has been realized by the people making the game. It will be different, or it will fail. Those are really the only two options.

I just want PvP that is fun. I'm not to hung up on the details so long as its more than four instanced battlegrounds that only lead to a gear treadmill.

I do believe there should be PvP and PvE with flagged PvP servers though.

If you are the type of person to believe Smed, you might want to read:

http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/10/20/soe-live-2012-john-smedley-on-eq-next-and-soes-future/

 

"This is not going to be Grieferquest, and every system will be designed around not allowing that. It's one of those things where you have to make it so that griefers can't ruin the experience for everyone else."

 

Again, I will hold off judgement until August.

They are not changing MMOs so far we wont know what they are. The evolution is to the world and the NPC AI. The world will be living like Wildstar where dev will change the landscape by events that happen and maybe even the players can. NPCs will remember you and react accordingly. The core mechanics of PvP and PvE will still be done in EQN with its own window dressings. How they do that? Its anyones guess.

Except as is obvious with my most recent thread, Smedley says they are changing what an MMO is. The core PVE mechanic of loot progression is not going to be there. They are changing a lot more than the world and AI. Also, from what he has said in other interviews, it will be players changing the world.

 It was never stated that  "Core PvE mechanic of loot progression" wasn't going to be in EQN. You are reading way, way to far into his comments.
You're ignoring what Calm posted as well

"We have a lot of different buckets of players, some want to kill stuff and get loot, we want to make sure those people can win in the things they like to do."

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

6/21/13 1:25:29 PM#107

Obviously choice number 1...

 

But with some changes... make the PvP the middle of the world... and force everyone to travel trough your playerfactions PvP continent to reach other PvE destinations...   make resources important, and make sure some of the rarer resources can only be found in the PvE places... but getting those resources to your castle requires you to travel trough those horible PvP zones again

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

You still kill mobs and get loot from a non-item progression system. A lack of item treadmill does not equate to a lack of items.

 He never said there wouldn't be an item treadmill, you are setting yourself up for a massive disappointment by reading into comments to far. I HOPE they find a better a system than an item treadmill, but I wouldn't bet one penny that they will and they certainly don't state they are removing it. The ONLY thing we can infer from the comment is that the " World will be more important and not simply a background"  that's it.

They are changing a lot more than the world and AI. Also, from what he has said in other interviews, it will be players changing the world.

Was also very clear this is still something MMO fans would have a comfort level with. You really are jumping to conclusions that at this point have nothing to base them from. If Aug 2nd they announce somethings thats a left turn from standard MMO core models, I will be glad to eat my words. I am 90% sure the revolution has to do with the world and the NPCs and how they interact with the player and new content.

If that post is true, that means there is PvP of some sort.

i chose 8.

 

to be clear i am a non FFA PvP type of player.

 

having said that, i think it would make no sense whatsoever to not have at least one FFA PvP server. there are always balance questions in mmo's. you can never stay away from that. and if there is to be some pvp you can bet there will be pvp balancing, even if the emphasis is on pve.

this server would probably fill quickly and would likely lose a good quarter of its population after launch. however, having just that one server as a refuge for those who enjoy that gameplay might very well endear SOE enough to PvPrs that they might both be surprised at the relationship.

 

the only other option is a model similar to AA's, but w/o the added benefits of being in pvp land. why? because you play in a pvp world b/c you enjoy it, not b/c you are being strongarmed into it by the game mechanics. this should not be a punishment for pve players, but an opportunity for pvp players.

Of course there is pvp of some sort. It's just not going to be pvp that is forced on another "or" the negatives for doing so will outweigh what the attacker deems a positive.

At this point then I hope its something like Rift, AA, DAoC or ESO. Never been a fan of just turning a server into a PvP server and adding contested zones/areas or making it FFA and calling it good PvP. I really want some depth. Player made keeps and castles and open world dungeons with the risk of getting attacked by players on the PvP area. This has me waiting with bated breath!

Even if you had PVP servers in EQNext, it would make little sense.

The Everquest world  is just a void the Nameless filled, the lore revolves around the Gods really, and their bickering (except for Luclin who had enough of it and just decided to go live on the moon next door). 

Although races follow different dieties and factions, it mostly revolves around Gods, not inner-racial animosity, which is something you would need to justify PVP.

Killing for the sake of killing is boring, it trivializes death and murder, and there are metric crapton of games like that already. Darkfalls PvP is not hardcore, its safe and familiar, death and killing have little meaning, as they happen a lot and players have extra armor sets, extra mounts..., its a safe predictable system in the end.

I hope EQN breaks the mold, and not have the same old tired PvP, that means nothing in the end.

im going to assume you did not mean inter-racial animosity, but instead factional or national identity. because you dont need a lack of racial harmony to have a war. you simply need two groups that either perceive the other as a direct threat or a lack of some type of resource(s) that both parties need.

secondly, there have been plenty of wars 'inspired' by whatever local deities existed in human history. i can't imagine that Norrath has somehow escaped the fairly common frailty of killing in the name of god(s).

aside from that, if i remember correctly there are already 2 basic factions in the original EQ lore with their own capitol cities and at one time a rather grinding means of changing faction (at least in EQ2, until recently). those faction quests alone should tell you that there are vast gulfs of difference between the two groups.
