    Default How's NA vs. EU PVP?

    regarding
    -population of pvpers
    -queue times
    -skill in fights (are NA players, on average more skilled at dps & killing blows, or EU?)
    -skill in carrying out objectives
    -healing

    Skill in any pvp game over the player base goes
    Korea > Europe&UK > North America

    But swap it around for long term player base after game starts to go down hill.

    Small on EU but you get plenty of games within prime time and the odd pop during the day.

    Not sure how you can gauge different servers unless someone has played both ^^. But it's true what was mentioned above, statistically you usually see better averages in certain regions. It would be logical to assume this applied to Rift as well.

    I've spoken to most of the decent players still Pvping on EU and they themselves say they're 'nothing' compared to players that used to play. Which if you think about it is obvious. Any kind of sub-professional level player wouldn't waste their time on essentially an MMO in maintenance mode, with no PvP focus.

    I myself am an objective player, and have a decent win rate due to this, but you'll notice the better players who have been around a long time have no intentions of playing objectives and go for kills instead. A few possible reasons; it can be often boring to do objectives (ghar station for one), objectives in 3 WF's result in a premature death (they don't want to look bad...), they don't want to increase their hidden elo too much (even though that's fairly irrelevant now with queue times, but it does pitch you against harder players to a small extent), or getting kills on an OP spec is all they know (a little harsh but true in some circumstances).

    Healing isn't worthwhile unless you're primalist. Warriors can do fairly well, but if you're decent at healing you may aswell go dps and be decent at that, as warrior dps can hurt when played well. The rest of the classes don't heal enough for it to be worth it (mages can be OK in certain situations).
