OWPVP done right - e.g. EVE is fantastic.

what i dont get is some people thinking wow style flip a switch PVP servers are some how more PVP than a RVR setup.  Wow is a game ran by former EQ raiders for raiders, PVP is right at the bottom of WOWs priorities and always has been.  PVP in wow is just token flip a switch pvp servers and instanced gubbins.

You could have found the info you were looking for by googling "Elder scrolls online" "pvp" or something like that but no instead you came here to get a reaction. Classic mmorpg.com

the fact that they already said they are using single server technology, and trying to boast this "doac-like" world pvp, its gonna back fire so hard.

More importantly, if it isn't restricted I'm not buying it.

what you want then? warhammer style region controlling pvp every map? yea that worked really frakking great. pvp on cyrodil is the closest of the best idea how to do pvp in mmos. and still and always there is opinions that differs always cries about this and that. im not a fanboy, but i hell yeah like the idea how the wrap this pvp up.

He didnt say anything about warhammer he just wants open world pvp and he doesnt mean free for all.  WoW was awsome with its open pvp and so i can understand why many people want that.

You could never feel safe questing. - It would be a lore-breaker (at least initially before 50+) if factions are not restricted to the races the comprise them.   I remember when runescape decided to open up the whole world to PVP, instead of just limiting it to the wilderness. The amount of backlash they received was mind-numbing. PvP was ruined so much that they eventually they restored the wilderness to the way it was before.
Tell the people at blizz that, it was in fact the removal of meaningful OW PVP that cost blizz many subs. OW PvP in Vanilla WoW was some of the best OW PvP in any game.
  wow got more popular after bg's were introduced in vanilla wow and gained more subs actually. group finder and meeting stones is what killed wow's open pvp. i love me some open pvp but i 100% understand why they have pve exclusive zones in a ES mmo. if there was open pvp that would turn off a lot of fans. open ffa pvp is not for a lot of people, especially this games target audience. wows target audience at the time of release was the "bnet kiddies" who were all about pvp.
Where did I say BGs killed Wow, I said the removal of meaningful OW PvP, which was cross server BGs etc

whats the difference between bg's and cross server bg's? the addition of cross server Bg's had literally no impact on open world pvp except for the fact the queue times were faster.

when bg's were first introduced it did kill the Tarren Mill pvp, i will give you that.

but open pvp was still alive and well until people could queue for dungeons and port to meeting stones, rather than having to travel there.

people then just sat in a safe zone and waited for queues.

Why are people hating on open world pvp and saying it wont work when WoW the most popular mmo had it from the start where it has some of the most populated PvP servers such as illidan.  The mmo crowd has turned into a bunch of wimps with their restricted safe pvp lol.  PvP is so much more immersive and fun when its sudden in the middle of PvEing.  And its not like it was free for fall.  I seriously dont understand why they cant have the cyrodil pvp with open world pvp in the faction lands and exploration.

I enjoy the PVE aspect of MMO's but I like PVP a lot more. Most of my PVE needs are satisfied playing Elder Scrolls Oblivion/Skyrim along with Skyrim mods but I do still play PVE in MMO's. The major problem with this game is that all PVP is going to be restricted to Cyrodiil, I enjoy playing PVP in a wide variety of enviornments and constantly playing in Grasslands/Some snow areas near Bruma is not enough for me. You are supposed to be at war here, I know the battle is for the throne of the Empire that means you need to control Cyrodiil, the heartland and most powerful region in Tamriel. Still, you should beable to sack enemy cities and have big pvp battles in enemy regions.

I know they are balancing everyone for PVP in Cyrodiil, while I like that, it doesn't do much for diversity and it would all come down to skill instead of the gear you worked hard for to get. There should be pvp in the rest of the game world with no balancing additions that are in Cyrodiils pvp. You should beable to sack an enemy city and if you take their city you get to loot it and everyone who attacked should get a lot of gold / items you find around the city. After a city is secured the home faction would have the ability to take it back. 

 

I know this game is running on the Mega Server technology, there should be a PVE and PVP shard, the PVE shard would have all PVP limited to Cyrodiil while the PVP shard would have open world pvp throughout the entire world. 

So are they going to have true open world pvp in this game or not? Limitiing all PVP to Cyrodiil is just gonna feel like Guild Wars 2, huge giant maps for PVP but no real open pvp throughout the rest of the world. I hate it when MMO's divide where you can and can't pvp. 

That's a shame. We'll miss you.

 

Personally I don't give a sh*t about PvP, and why an Elder Scrolls game would be PvP focused I have no idea.

 

It's a SP PvE series, let's turn it into a multiplayer PvP zergfest. Good idea.

I'd guess WoW had the best timing.

Rift operates the same way right?

Cause I believe out of all the themeparks that have ow pvp the only one that can be used as an example would be...WoW and/or maybe Rift possibly. Maybe I'm missing an MMORPG though.

I think it'd be cool if in ESO, you can hit other factions in their own faction zone though rather than just cyrodill.

I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

Indeed, back when community still meant something in MMORPGs. Back when a random guild, group or such would form a large raiding party consisting of a variety of people (not just the said group/guild) just for owPVP to raid an enemy capital, take over a certain area of the map and whatnot.

Back when community and 'camraderie' was more than just a forced feature to get the next 'rank', 'pvp-level' or 'pvp-token' for the fancy item.

My fondest pvp memories are indeed from WoW pre-battlegrounds (tarren mill raids, xroads raids and city raids like undercity, orgrimmar and the likes with totally randomized levels of participants and not just capped players)

 

On topic, I think i heard or read somewhere that you can enter other 'faction' capitals but will be attacked upon by their guards and that faction players can attack you, but you can't attack them (unless attacked upon).

Pretty much like wow starter zones in vanilla WoW (you would be safe as long as you didn't attack the red named guy)

Anyone considered that the average TES player won't enjoy being ganked and teabagged all the time by you 'l33t' MMO PvPers while they're trying to explore.

All PvP will be focused in Cyrodiil but its more then just a battleground. It will have PvE there as well. With open world dungeons you can fight over. Something the devs are calling a Mega dungeon much like Darkness falls from DAoC. If you are a PvPer at heart this will have it all but ganking newbs. IMO if thats what you are looking for, your not a real PvPer.

My guess is that you either have never played an open world pvp game or in the end it wasn't for you.

Lineage 2 has open world pvp and not only was pvp happening all around the sieges were still done. Of course, they were at specific times of the week.

you join up for groups where people are announcing battles. If you are part of a guild they will tell you where to go.

It's true you would never feel safe questing. some people like this and it's their reason to play open world pvp. Or reason to pve in a group of people.

It would not be a lore breaker.

My advice would be to play an open world pvp game to get a better idea how they run.

Lineage 2 was the best open world PvP game I played. The model ESO is using will give you the best of both worlds. Cyrodiil will have PvE quests with the risk of PvP but not at the cost of high level player picking on low level chars, everyone will be leveled up and attacking a level 10 char has a fighting chance. The more I read about Cyrodiil the more I get excited. I may live there when my wife is not playing.

Why rule out a whole game that you could very well end up really liking just because one feature isn't to your liking on paper? Let's say pvp is restricted to one zone, but come launch day, people get to that zone and find out its really well made and, most importantly, extremely fun to play. Do you want to miss out on that just because you have already set limits on what features you need in order to enjoy a game?

My advice would be to just play the game and decide for yourself if its fun to you or not.

Yeah, I loved to invade ogrimmar with a 5 man party and prey on hordes ^_^ 

TBH I never PK'd lower lvls because it wasn't a challenge. And it might be nice to have the same in ESO, for example let only MAX lvls pk eachother in their faction zones :D

The word meaningful, does not mean what you think it means.

 

There was no meaning to OW PvP in Vanilla wow, the reason people gathered up at Southshore and Tarren Mill (and this was the same in the Lumbercamp / Darkshore area) to fight was because these were the first areas you encountered the enemy, and so the most likely to have some one charge in on another person.  

 

There was very little meaning to it, nothing change, you gained nothing from doing it, but people enjoyed the back and forth, hence blizz made warzones to allow for a more structured flow to PvP, these proved immesurably more popular when combined with actual PVP progression.

 

Ow PVP is over-rated in games that are not designed purely for that, there is no difference between OW PvP and the Mists in GW except you get to press a button to enter and you know what you are going to be doing.
