Fuller: A Hunting Will We Go

Garrett Fuller thinks something has been missing from PvP lately and he may know what it is: the thrill of the hunt.

Garrett Fuller

PvP is a critical part to many MMOs. Last week at AGDC I had the chance to talk to a lot of people about just how important it was. If you read my Jeff Hickman article and saw the chatter about Dark Age of Camelot it got people excited. More importantly I spent time at the Guild Panel with 4 of the top guild leaders in MMOs. Everyone was talking PvP. I wanted to outline something that makes PvP so much fun and has somehow been lacking in MMO lately, that something is The Hunt!

Let’s take Battlegrounds for an example, or any instanced ten vs. ten style game. PvP in this form is fun, but can get repetitive. Players always know the goal, always know the odds and if the group is bad and the opposition is strong, usually they leave to find a better scenario. All that being considered I do enjoy scenario PvP. I like the capture the flag or taking check points type of battles. They have their place and can be fun, but they are usually predictable.
