So in the name of RvR, which game will produce a PvP system to match the greatness of DAoC?

I like CU's chances better simply because its RvR system won't be chained to PvE. Everything from class design to gear to RvR rewards and progression can be designed in that game solely for how it will impact RvR. In TESO PvE gear and the raiding or grinding needed to acquire it will intrude on RvR, and classes and RvR rewards will have to be balanced so they aren't overpowered in PvE.

ESO fixed that problem. There is no PvP gear, there is just gear. No PvP stats its all just gear!

I'll definitely check out both, because TESO is <1 year from release, and at the earliest, I think CU is 2-4 years.

 

I'm bored of GW2, bored of EVE, couldn't get back into DAOC when I tried just cause it's so dated.

I'm not too up-to date on the combat system for Elder Scrolls Online.

But if it is anything like skyrim (aiming to target) .... it will be interesting to see how it works for RvR

 

Also, I think both games should implement good  CC  (similiar to DAoC).  Which is what I think made group play so funn.

Since Camelot Unchained is currently in Kickstarter don't expect to see it for a few years.  Anyway they'll be pretty different games catering to two crowds.  On one side you have an MMO with a RVR experience.  The other is just a RVR scenario.

First of course I'll play ESO, and then whenever the times comes I'll try Camelot Unchained.  I doubt I would leave the former for the latter but time will tell I suppose.
