I'm mostly a pve type of girl and I'll tell you why, but first I'd like to say that I don't mind the PVP system in general. What I ABSOLUTELY LOATH is childish and immature players that ruin the entire system of it.
I'll delve deeper into that here. Now I haven't played a great many games with open PVP. I think I played one and that was a PVP server on Vanilla WoW when I first started. At the time I was relatively new to the whole pvp thing and didn't quite know what I was getting myself into. I happily questing in a Contested zone (I was a very low leveled player) and then suddenly this ?? lvl (I'm going to assume that he was cap at 60) Tauren came out of nowhere and slew me right then and there!! I was a tad bit confused and went to go find my body once I did I looked around to see if he had left. It looked it to me as he was not around anymore so I raised myself thinking I was safe. Then not a minute later after I raised he killed me again! I rinsed and repeated this and soon got terribly fed up with his idiocy and logged off as I couldn't finish the quest I was on since he was preying on me.
Some time after that I quite WoW and went back to it as my family wanted to play together (which is always awesome. Playing with the fam that is. ^^) and this time we started on a PVE server. I started to do BGs and had pretty fun with it for a long while till I think about the BC expansion happened and I noticed that there where some people yelling hysterically at people who "weren't do a good job" in their eyes. While I wasn't part of that group of people who were getting yelled at I thought it was very ridiculous and uncalled for that they were getting yelled at. I mean it's a game right? Not a job. It's supposed to be fun. Even if you were to loose at least you had fun and enjoyed yourself.
However, later on, I noticed a HUGE influx on these PVP "elitists" who think that they're all that and a bag of chips. I mean they wouldn't be loosing in BGs if they swung their swords more instead of their mouths. Their horrid attitude ended up ruining PVP for me. I even got insulted through an entire Arathi Basin BG just because I wasn't living up to that person's expectations. "Um, excuse me? I don't have to live up to anyone's expectations other then my family's expectations. The world doesn't revolve around you, you know." is what ran through my head when he said that. His hostility really ruined my mood and demoralized me and never bothered with BG's, duels, arena (I never did arena's anyway. lol XD), and anything that dealt with PVP and elitist jerks who like to kill fun for other people just to satisfy themselves.
After that I came the conclusion that those types of jerks who don't know the word "sportsmanship" ruin PVP in its entirety in just about any game as they're in abundance and decided to stick to PVE and only PVP with my family and/or friends who I know won't resort to childish and immature yelling and insults just because I happen to suck at the duel or something. Who knows. I'm probably not the best PVPer, but I'm just a human after all. I'm not perfect. I see no reason to get butthurt about it. I don't mind PvP (BGs and such), but I LOATH and ABHOR PKer's a whole lot more.
Now as for Scarlet Blade I am actually looking forward to trying out the PvP in it as I've spoken to a great deal to the community here and have noticed how nice, kind, and warm they are! Though in the back of mind and deep down in my heart I'm still a little scared to try it as I don't want the types of people that I've meet as I've stated above (which there seems to be a few in here from some of the posts) to ruin SB for me as it has so much potential in the PvP aspect of it. I'll gladly brave the PvP waters once it comes out however. ^^
On a side note:
I do not understand this PvE carebears.
Also~ OMG!! CARE BEARS!! I absolutely love that show! They're the most adorable bears EVER!! <3 I don't really have a favorite because I like them all. I have at least three stuffed Care Bear animals. They're really snuggable~ You should get one might ease the angst that's going on~
