That's odd: they are going to have PvE and PvP servers? I wonder how that will work in context of what they have told us so far.

@Dblade

What do you mean? They've said PvP is completely optional, and that there will be world PvP. That pretty much means either separate server types or a flagging system, which most world PvPers despise.

It seems, to me anyway, that they are saying you can earn exp and possibly complete certain quests by PVPing, allowing you level that way if you choose to completely ignore the PVE aspect of the game. That in itself will probably please alot of the more hardcore audiance.

Assuming of course PVP doesn't suck.

@DiscordSK Question four:

"Will there be different server types, as in PvE servers and PvP servers? (asked by Fruskov)
There will be several different types of server, including PvP servers and PvE servers."

My thoughts were like both yours and Harley's. I thought this might have been a typo or something.

@Harley Dude I thought they only mentioned 8 player battlegrounds. I must have missed the world pvp part.

"There will be several different types of server, including PvP servers and PvE servers". I have to wonder what they are!

I'm still interested in seeing Coruscant in game. I hope it is more open then Taris. Both planets are similar but I'd like sort of hidden things on every level, places you stumble upon.

My nightmare for Coruscant is that it's just like Taris, multiple small-ish maps stacked on top of each other with nothing to discover. With hand-holding guidance around the map. Luckily it sounds they aren't going for that route.

I hope there is as little PvP as possible.

PvP ruins MMOs.

Look at WoW, Champions online, Global agenda, Age of Conan, etc. It is the root of the problem with these games.

Dont get me wrong I like SOME PvP. but when developers start balancing character classes around PvP or adding a special stat (resilience) just for PvP it ruins the game for the rest of us.

Also the more skilled players (hackers?/exploiters?) make PvP so unapprochable for new players that they just quit altogether. Nobody likes dying 2 seconds after they spawn into the battle-ground or getting slaughtered over and over and over by people who exclusively PvP.

@Nicks87

Yeah, so I'm a PvP'er. I only play the primarily PvE games like WoW (for example) because I have carebear friends and I like to play with them. (I'm also a sick main-healer .. go figure)

I've never understood why developers would start balancing a PvE game around PvP. Seriously - balance your game for what it is, and give us an FFA server. We'll just play the classes that are good. We're usually too busy shit-talking eachother to whine about class balance anyway.

Hey Nicks86, nice of you to cross-post this in both this topic and the Week in Review topic. Do you have some sort of vendetta against pvp in MMOs?
