Look at your post, now back to mine, now back to your post, now back to mine. Sadly, it isn't mine, but if you stopped being nonconstructive and dumb and started posting about something that makes sense, it could look like it's mine. Look down, back up, where are you? You're on a page with the post your post could look like. Anything is possible when you post like me, and not like an idiot. I'm on a forum.
Instances completely defeat the purpose of RVR. It needs to be a seperate area designated for pvp. I don't care how they handle the flagging issue. If some of the obsessive carebears really have an issue then yes treat it like a normal zone, maybe have it prompt you when you enter the zone if you wish to flag pvp on or off.
Either way this needs to be added to the game. Can it be done with 2 factions? Yes. Its never been done right but I think it can be done with two. Population will become and issue and a third faction will be needed down the road probably. But its no different than anything else in that regard. There is no real lose to adding a rvr zone aside from time spent and resources.
I hugely enjoyed open RVR in WAR, so I wouldn't mind if something like this is included in Rift, even on PVE servers.
People who don't want to get involved can just avoid those areas and you won't be flagged as PVP at all.
What faction balance is garbage? Are you saying the two factions we have now would be underpowered in some way should RvR be implemented?
Ok listened to the interview, the guy giving the answers says maybe to every question so I wouldn't hold my breath.
But the fact remains that it won't work in RIFT. It didn't work in Aion for sure, which would be similar to what you want here. It didn't work in Warhammer because, well... it didn't work. It didn't work in AoC... Because most people didn't get past the first city before throwing it in the trash.

Does it need 3 factions to work optimally? Yes. But the only reason for that is because of population. That will be the case whatever pvp you have so its an issue that should be addressed anyways. Why more games don't have three factions I will never understand.
As for Lag, its not different than invasions are now, so your argument is ridiculous.
It sounds like you just want to be cool and have a different opinion. None of your arguments make any sense at all.

Would love some real RvR in a game. DAoC back in the day was the best by far. Anybody who doesn't think it works has no clue what they are talking about because they've obviously never played it.
Honestly without real RvR of any sort i'm not sure how long i'll last after endgame. PvP is great but having real objectives is key to realm vs realm.
But here are my parting words...I find it ironic that people want to PvP/RvR but want to do it in the safety of a PvE server to avoid the griefing from the mean players from the PvP servers then in turn call us carebears. Makes total sense, not...

I'm sorry that it seems impossible to have a mature discussion on these boards without people going 3rd grader on you Two threads where people lash out at me for no reason at all now..
I would love to see this in game too !
