    Default Why didn't RIFT just simply copy WAR's PVP?

    I mean, that was the best part of WAR and they didn't copy it(I 'm not talking about the end game stupid city invasion). SWTOR, supposely, will have ranked PVP and matchmaking system when launched. Supposely.

    SWTOR seems to be taking the best of WoW and WAR according to this article

    "And the game’s PvP system feels like a refined and upgraded version of Warhammer Online’s."

    I may not be in the know. BioWare hasn't released much of PvP stuf other than the short video showing there Warfronts, battlegrounds, mini's whatever the heck they are calling them.

    When they do release said information thats when people will believe this statement.

    At present i personally am very skeptical as to what Bioware is doing with massive PvP RvR whatever its going to be called in their game.

    The proof in the pudding so to speak

    Because WoW didn't copy WAR's PvP.

    You don't honestly expect Trion to do something WoW *didn't* do, right?

    Don't forget to support Dual Targeting in SWTOR and Prime Online.
    We didn't get it here, but perhaps we can help make the next games into what they should be.

    Because fighting over empty keeps until the server crashes to fufill your boring RR grind isn't a good design.
    Even free cost too much now

    Yeah I agree this game needs so badly something like Warhammer PVP or even Aion's abyss, hell even AoC's sieges are cool. Faction vs faction isnt quite there yet. Almost embarrassing right now, both factions just raid their *** off right now.

    Read little bit of the article, and stopped here. "And there’s a lot to talk about in TOR." Yeah, good PVP right? SO much story when you're done you want to play some shooter.

    I have only played Aion out of the ones you mentioned, but I agree. This game needs more faction vs. faction PvP element - mass sieges or something similar.

    Why won't they just make it like AION, the side that controls Stillmoor get access to GSB and ROS?

    IT will at least get people to PVP.

    Yeah and you cannot expect Blizz to not do anything that Everquest and DAOC did right?

    WoW was not the first MMO contrary to what many morons think haha.
