Alright, I finally got internet access today, and I'll hopefully have this game installed this afternoon. I have many many tasks to do, but I hope to be able to play a bit soon anyway. So, since I don't have time to go through the recent threads, everyone post here if you have the game, what your names and servers are, and/or if you intend to get the game soon. so post your status here.

I seriously urge you guys not to go on a pvp server. It's near worthless seeing as battlegrounds completely fills the pvp aspect of WoW, while the "pvp" servers are just there for random gankings. Hell, you can still go on pvp raids on normal servers.

Gonna have to actually agree with Grom on this one. There are plusses and minuses to playing on a pvp server. Having played a high character on both (my main was 47 in beta, and I am 50 now in retail) I can safely say that when you're on a pve server... sometimes, you experience the whole "damn, this would be a great time to have everyone pvp flagged for some good massacring". However, far more numerous are the times you are raging about being ganked 5 times over by a group that camps your corpse, and THEN you wish you had played on pve.

Like I said... the frustrations of a pvp server far outnumber the benefits... IMO.

Yet even so, PvP is a little more thrilling than PvE, I sometimes get bored in PvE because I know that the only thing that can kill me are the creeps and what not, if im not flagged. Yet entering into a contested area or enemy territory can really make PvP worth it. It makes it a little more serious and a bit more exciting.

Level 35 and I have never experienced that. Sure, you get jumped every now and then, but thats part of the excitement, and then you just call out for help in general. At least on my server (population of only like 1900, little in favor of horde) someone will come aid you kick ass 9 times out of 10. Its awesome fun, i definately recomend playing on a server with less that 3k people.

It's just a war of attrition.

Here's the basis of a PVP server:

Group H finds group A near Group A town.
Group A kills every member of group H.
Group H rez's and attacks again.

This continues until one side gets bored and leaves.

I've played both on PVP and PVE servers, yes, I know what I'm talking about. I've experienced what you guys keep urging onto people. PVP servers are worthless, and will even be obsolete when Battelgrounds are released, as all people will want to do is level to perform better in BG's.

By the way, this is coming from the person who was going to coordinate PVP raids from WDP way back when. I'm far from being a care bear.

Seriously, look at the bigger picture. The only real reasons I could see you wanting more people to join you on your server is so you have more friends to outnumber the ganking party you meet, or instead that you don't want to feel like a moron getting your character into mid-level range and realizing you should start over.

Grom you can't possibly know what you are talking about, i have 2 pvp chars, 1 lvl 30 and 1 lvl 23 both humans. Neither has been ganked. And any attacks are put towards taking out a town, not singular players.

And my having a level 25 Horde character on a PvP server is somehow negated? Interesting. If we continue that trend, then look at some other, more informed forums, and you'll find the majority of players feel the same way. Odd how that works.

Cloud, instead of somehow backing up your argument and perhaps turning my head the other way, you just simply reinforce what I said before, ggthxnore.

Level 25 isnt high enough in my oppinion, thats barely getting into the meat of the class and server.

Yeah, no. You say that as if level 35 is at all high. Once you hit 20 and you really start to branch out into zones, PvP is an option, and becomes constant. Thx.

Branch out into the zones at 20? Hah, by 35 youve gotten out all over the place, (im not 35 though, 37 me thinks atm). 35 youve got the meat of your class figured out, and youve been all over the place in the game. Booty bay, strangle thorn, alterac, arathi highlands, 1k needles. Maybe youre just a carebear. Its ok grom, nothing wrong with that.

And quit with the bnet ggnoreimadumbassshit at the ends of the posts, very bnet kiddyish for the leader of a guild named "Wolves of Doomhammer".


I very much reccomend pvp servers, not the big ones though. You get a smaller pvp server (like nathrezim or the sort) And you find that a the smaller community provides a better sense of unity on your side. People are more willing to help exact revenge.

So having 2-3 more areas within your leveling scope matter how? As I previously said, 20 sheperds you into new, more middle ground areas, where pvp becomes constant.

Also, expect to be treated as you treat others. Sounds rather childish as well, but it seems some people still need to be reminded of that.

Strawberry on the Shortcake

eh, i think ganking is part of playing on a PvP server... but really, the key to this whole argument is the fact that this is the WDP... which stands for World Domination Party, remember. being on a non-PvP server just doesnt sit with me if im supposed to be dominating anything. not to mention that raids on PvP servers--that ive seen anyway--are both more common and more daring than those on non-PvP servers. on the server my troll hunter is on, which is non-PvP, about the only thing i ever see get attacked is Crossroads. however, watching a bunch of my friends on a PvP server, they both participate in and defend against raids to and from all over the place. only certain people on non-PvP servers really involve PvP in their playing the game, whereas everyone on a PvP server does, or they shouldnt be there. Battlegrounds will bring the more story-related PvP element to the non-PvP servers, yes, but dont forget that Battlegrounds will be on the PvP servers too, so those servers still have an advantage in that respect--people on those servers are more used to PvP and as such Battlegrounds on a PvP server are likely to be more involved and involve more people(no, that isnt redundant ). i dunno. anyways, i dont feel like remaking my WDP character, so were probably staying on PvP
