The Daily Quest - Your Ideal PVP?

Posted Feb 17, 2015 by William Murphy

The Daily Quest - Your Ideal PVP?

It's an argument we see on our forums a lot: some folks love open FFA PVP, others hate it, some love full-loot, others loathe the very idea. But there's a lot of wiggle room in between. So we ask you today: what's your ideal form of PVP?

For me, personally, I'm somewhere in between. I love the factional warfare of games like DAOC and GW2, but I don't always want to be watching over my shoulder either. I'm looking forward to games like Crowfall, where several different worlds offer different types of PVP, but I worry that there won't be a home for pure PVE fans (which may be the point). 

I can say I'm not a fan of full-loot, but if that's what you're getting yourself into, you know what to expect. It works in games like DayZ and H1Z1, and it can and will work in Crowfall... because those players on those FFA servers with full loot will know exactly what risk they're taking.

But for me the perfect mix probably lies somewhere in the factional or guild-based PVP. Where I have allies and enemies alike on the same server. And I don't mind partial loot, as long as I can elect to "insure" pieces I want to keep or replace upon death for a fee.

And yes, I do like instanced PVP too. It's quick-spurt, quick-fix PVP that really can give the kind of action I want without much hassle trying to find a fight.

But what about you? What's your ideal form of PVP? This is your quest!
