Whoa, looks like open world PvP might be coming, though it looks like it might be for limited periods, and opt-in/flagged.  From Joel:

One of the more interesting ideas that we hope to implement soon is the idea of PvP events in the open world – a relic appears in a random playfield and the three factions must compete for a short amount of time to control it. Anyone who enters the area can be flagged for PvP and compete for the relic. It’s a little like a dynamic event, but encouraging competition rather than co-operation between the factions.

Wow, that is incredibly awesome, as long as it's optional (there's gonna be a lot of crying if anyone can be ganked). Didn't think we'd ever get anything resembling open world PVP in TSW, to be honest. :)

It's optional as in "do not go in this area for this time", in short it's not optional at all :)


However instead of a "PVP flag" they should make an Event flag, everyone who likes to participate needs to flag himself upon entering the zone, pvp is part of that event.

I wonder how that'll work with the rather obvious faction imbalace, especially if those events are short and not worth gathering for.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

I like the idea of PvP events in specific areas. It all depends on the details of how it's setup, of course. Lake Wintergrasp was a lot of fun, but the other open pvp areas in WoW were pretty 'meh'.

Maybe they'll do something with phasing or cross server people or something like that.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Actually, I think it could go in the direction of unsegregated servers.  Check out some of the more recent conversation:

So it was confirmed in the End of Days live stream yesterday that "Black Ops" flagged open world PvP is coming to TSW.  Looks like it will not be on segregated servers, but rather be limited "dynamic events" where players can opt-in/out.  Still curious to see if they'll add features for PvEers to see events, but they are defintely stepping up the factional conflict.
