Can PvP and PvE coexist? This is the discussion taking part in our forums right now. Join in!

OP delete5230 originally posted the following,

“Vanilla WoW was the only mmorpg that got open world PvP right.  Since then many tried and failed…

Think about this: In playing Classic WoW...... Ever notice how mad PvE players get when they get attacked ?  So mad they feel compelled to tell their Guild or World chat.  That's because it rare, a surprise, or 2% of a HUGE game. “

Discussion is fascinating, with some like Scot replying that zoned PvP is perhaps better with RvR being optimal.

User Rungar argues that PvP and PvE can coexist,

“pvp and pve can coexist but what cant coexist is pve raids and pvp. One will always eat the other and both will suffer for it. so if you have a primarily pvp game you stop at dungeons and if you have a primarily pve game with raiding  you don't have pvp or just have limited pvp. “
