There's nothing that can compare to the community of an rp server. The addition of pvp simply makes it the total package. Additionally, even the non-rpers are generally of higher quality because they rolled on an rp-pvp server in order to avoid the slew of ridiculous names and kiddie antics that go alongside them. Any trolls or anti-rp griefers are met with swift death, that's how we did it on Ravenholdt and that's how we'll do it on Tera.
As a member of the Kiith-sa Hunters, and a proud RP-PVPer, I fully support ZerodenHunter in this post and strongly request that EME consider this petition.
RP/PvP Server...where honor isn't a forgotten concept.
Well, I hope so anyway. But there are rich RP scenarios inherent in a Guild vs Guild environment. The population can make or break this thing though. Would have to police the server ourselves if we wanted it to succeed.
I'll add my vote in for this concept and also strongly recommend that EME consider this option.
Count my vote cast in favor. While the argument is not "RP-PVE over RP-PVP" it's simply that those who want that satisfaction of both worlds and the immersion of, both client made story and player made story. It should not be ignored and would be a great downfall for EME if they truly did ignore the request.
I for one, not speaking for anyone but myself, would strongly reconsider playing if I only had the choice of either RP-PVE or PVP simply because in my last decade of MMO gaming I've come to loathe and despise the general populace on pure PVP servers more so then any other server type I've played on.
Posting in support of an RP-PVP server. The RP-PVP servers generate a good group of players for a well versed community.
RP-PvP servers call for a specific type of player; a unique type of player. Unfortunately, such players can not properly thrive in either a pure RP or pure PvP environment. That's why such an archetype exists.
Consider this, many other games have RP-PvP servers and Tera isn't going to be anything short of a big deal. It may not look like there's a huge market for it, now, and maybe not right at launch. But, there WILL be more of us and we WILL make ourselves known. This is an inevitable fact. There will be plenty of players to make it worthwhile for you (EME) to bring up at least one RP-PvP server.
I'm all for it. I hope more folks jump on the bandwagon.
I think you can count any assenting posts on this thread as a signatory. =)
As a preorder, one of the biggest perks I'm looking forward to is name reservation and head start. If my server of choice is not available at launch, I'll have to reroll, relevel, and hope to keep my name whenever an RP-PvP server is opened. And, since I'm bringing non-roleplayers with me, I'll have to convince THEM to do it, too.
RP-PvP servers have the best communities of any realm. Please give us a place to call home!
I would like to add my name to Supporters,
granted i am not an avid pvp player on the /other/ games i do enjoy OWPVP and RP
I would like to sign on this as well, though mine is a special case signature.
Personally, I think a RP PVP server isn't necessary so long as there is a means for players to do RP "PVP" on the PVE server. Most MMOs that I have played usually allow some form of PVP in PVE servers. It's just that they remove the penalties of loosing in PVP or make it opitional via some form of dual mode. If the RP PVE server has such a mechanic built in, then a PVP one isn't necessary. However, if the PVE server is made so it's literally impossible to do any form of PVP, then yeah, put my signature on this.
