    Default Is there a point to PvP anymore?

    It baffles me that MMOs continue to pit two sides vs one another and the one with the biggest zerg always wins. Basic geometry: 3 sides promotes the best stability (see also: DaoC).

    Ever since I got back from vacation on Tuesday, I've witnessed 3-4 days straight of Defiant pvp raid rift zerging which puts our side @ a tremendous disadvantage. Couple this with defiant continually gaining PvP ranks and gear (plus the obvious early P8 exploits) and it will only get worse.

    Heck, @ least the pre-pvprift dailies seemed to work out for Guardians @ least some of the time.

    Been dying for oRvR ever since launch and...well...it just ain't working.

    Anyone have any thoughts? I've seriously been thinking of leaving for another server (but it looks like the defiant advantage is pretty pervasive so that might not even work).

    Eventually, things will even out. They can only keep you from getting rank 8 for so long. They might get the gear first and beat you into submission a few times, but that's the price you have to pay.

    Holding shift to tap the @ is in fact no faster then just typing at.
    Free faction transfers will fix this.

    Free faction transfers will make it even more lopsided IMHO. Sure, it might work once everyone is p8 because they'll swap out of boredom...but until then defiant would probably continue to ride the prestige gravy train for a couple months. Lord knows I would...
