The problem with all these MOAR PVP ideas that PVP-ers just can’t bring themselves to face is, PVP-ers comprise a significant minority in MMOs. They don’t in First Person Shooters, oddly enough. But, they do in MMOs.
Another way to put this is, people who play MMOs, in the main, aren’t interested in fighting other players as a form of amusement. Those who want to fight other players to get their Ya Yas out are generally drawn to FPS games.
No matter what MMO you will find a group of PVP-ers belaboring their forums (and management) with fabulous ideas to MAKE more people PVP. Those of us who don’t like PVP know why. Those who claim they like PVP but have found themselves in an MMO apparently continually miss the point.
NO GAME that’s tried to make PVP-ers happy in an MMO has ever survived the attempt. Why? Because 86% of their playerbase don’t like it. Do Not Like IT. Do Not Want To Do IT.
You can call names (carebears, risk averse, MINERS) ALL you want that will not change the fact that a MINORITY of people in MMOs want to PVP. It’s a statistical fact that CCP (among others) commissioned a study on in order to find out for sure what the deal is with this subject. 86% of MMO players Do Not Want To PVP.
I’ve said continuously here on the mighty EVE forum that PvP-ers HERE don’t really want to PvP. They want to GANK. GANKING is attacking someone who cannot fight back. That is not Player vs. Player. That is Player vs. 0 (nothing).
Call me names. Characterize this however you want. Fill the forum with BS all you want, that will not change the fact. You know what they say about someone who does the same thing over and over expecting a different result…right?
