Why would they open yet another megaserver to close it in 2 months as it empties due to griefers?

Probably to not split the playerbase. They could also make a special pjased version of the world with no level, stat boosted mobs from level 1, and much more. The reasob companies don't simply create multiple servers/phases with crazy rules is because it's too costly and splits everyone up.

Also, there's already Cyrodiil which isn't real owpvp, but it's quite large in itself for pvp'ers.

This is not possible, you never run into the other factions while questing. You only see them in Crydiil.

Unless you mean open pvp for your own faction, that seems silly though.

You know, they're just computer pixels. Unlike what you might believe, it can't actually hurt you. Trust me. I haven't heard of a anyone getting sick because their avatar got killed in a video game by another player.

No they get sick of being unable to progress because someone gets their jollies on making someone elses life miserable.

There is a reason why owpvp games have small communities with little investment cash.

Hm, you also do know that if a pvp phase existed you wouldn't have to chose either, right? Also, if someone tries to pk, you can always, you know, fight back. You might find it hard to believe, but in pvp, other players actually die from atttacks too.

And if someone's really getting sick because they got killed in a video game by another player, i really advise not playing the game at all. Seriously.

Same mega server just another phase within the mega server, let players pick when they want to enter this phase to quest or do what ever in the pvp phase.

It can be done but I don't see it happening, the days of  real MMO players are gone.

And secondly, how can there be open pvp? other factions cant get to you until Vet, so you guys want vets killing sub 50s and call that pvp?

It''s one thing to have a opinion, but enforcing one is unconstitutional.

You would be surprised how many players ruined their social lives, their educations and chances of a bright future just because of 'pixel wars'.  :)

I wish... A Tamriel-wide conflict and territory control would bring the game to the next level as far as purpose and intensity. Maybe future content will give us another world within the ES solar system that has world-wide PvP. That or maybe a special phase can be created within the megaserver that can be selected or de-selected based on the player's willingness to be a part of a special world-wide PvP ruleset. Just my 2 cents.

If there is one game where this would not work, its this game, with the mega server technollogy and the phasing

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)

hehe that is such a cute comment from a pve'er.  Obviously you could attack other players of your own faction, not to mention travel to all other zones to kill other factions. 

 

Man I am going to have to find a new game.  I am just not a pve'er at heart.  I can only quest for so long against AI controlled monsters that offer no challenge.  Playing with guys who are affraid to fight each other.

In your signature you listed DAoC as your best pvp experience?  Did you ever try Darkfall 1?  DAoC doesnt even come close.

Why do you come to a PVE game expecting the devs to cater to a ganker?

I love open PVP servers, but this game isn't built this way.  Can you imagine all the ganking while reading/listening to the endless quests?
