PVP-RP - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
If you're not one of the Warcrack addicts, this probably won't interest you.

It looks like Blizzard is going to roll out the promised PVP-RP servers real soon now. They have a test one set up. Warren and I are planning of playing the twins there as soon as they come out. In a way it'll suck a bit for us. The twins are currently level 50, and it looks like there's no way we can make 60 before the new server comes out. We'll have to start them over again from scratch without the satisfaction of first having gotten characters to 60. Oh well.

I wondering if any of the rest of you are interested in the PVP-RP servers. We are because we feel it'll be a more believable (to us) RP environment, and the twins are all about staying in character. We still won't be able to kill or be killed by people of our own faction, but this is the best we're likely to get. If there's interest I'll let people know which PVP-RP server it is (assuming they give us more than one!).

New Servers

They might let you migrate your characters over, no? I thought I'd head something about that.

It's probably not for me though, because I'm afraid I find the whole RP aspect of WoW extremely silly. The cooperative elements are fun, but I'm not willing to spend the energy making up backgrounds and whatnot for a such a canned/siloed world. Plus I think getting killed by random higher ups trying to do low to mid level quests would be annoying and I haven't been playing all that much lately since my hands have been hurting. :(

Re: New Servers

They tend to to allow character transfers to RP realms, so we think we'll have to start over.

I'll agree that WoW is a non-ideal place to RP, but its currently the best we have. Of course you could fix that some for me by sending out Hydra mail...

My experience with PVP in MMPORGs is that it attracts the worst sort of people. RP servers, conversly, seem to get some of the best. (In my humble opinion.) WHat a PVP-RP server would get... I don't know.

I do know that my few experiences with even controlled free for all PVP has left me frustrated and annoyed, so I'll be staying on a PVE RP server.

Re: PVP...

We've both played a bit on Bleeding Hollow and found it not to be bad, though we didn't really play enough to have a good picture. We're assuming that there will be people who want to RP and want the *slightly* more realistic environment that the PvP rules allow, and there will also be a bunch of people who want to beat of on those pansy RPers. We're hoping that by going to the server when it opens and trying to get the twins up through the levels quickly we'll be able to influence the culture on the new server in a more positive direction. That's why I'm wondering if any of my friends are interested. Obviously not everyone is willing to put up with the kind of grief that PvP can generate, so we know its likely to be a small subset.

not me, sorry. :)

Good luck, though. :)
