I'll try some PvP. I'm mostly all PvE for the above reasons, but if it's a game that gives me a fair chance to have some fun with it, then I will. Catering only to PvP OR PvE is a mistake IMO. If I only wanted PvE, I could play Skyrim, BUT if I only wanted to boost epeen by beating other players, then why not Street Fighter.
Exactly this. ^
If I need my PvP "fix" I resort to shooters and fighting games. MMORPGs with their typical tab-target/point-and-click combat mechanics just don't do it for me in PvP mainly because it all amounts to a "numbers" game where the victor is pre
determined by who has the highest level, the best stats, the strongest gear, the most optimized skillset, the most pots (and if he/she is even potting to begin with), and so forth.
A buddy of mine in SWTOR proved this to me: On his highest level character, which I believe was a Scoundrel if memory serves me right, he allowed several lowbies in the opposite faction to attack him for quite a bit out of pity. Why? Because they were merely chipping away his health, while in contrast he knew he could kill them in a few hits. And he did after getting bored. I just couldn't help but shake my head, but the scenario rings true in just about any MMORPG sadly enough.
PvP is a joke in MMORPGs if I may be so blunt. This is why I prefer to PvE in MMORPGs. I just feel like the genre isn't suited for PvP and games like Scarlet Blade are no different (given its tab-target combat system). TERA is probably the only MMORPG that I will partake in PvP, but even then it has its own set of issues that deter me from truly enjoying PvP there. And so with that said I prefer to PvE in MMORPGs, but so-help-me-God I will be brutal in PVP-oriented games like shooters and fighting games.
