Sorry I'm late. Found this thread searching to see if there had been an update to the PvP situation for this game.
Gotta respond, even if nobody reads it and nobody cares because it'll make me feel better.
Mikhalia, this is directed at you, but only because you seem to be the primary contributor for the argument against PvP. I came to debate (again, may be a little late for this) and defend the people who would like to play a game the way they like to play a game.
And again, if every other game on the market has it, why does this game ALSO have to have it? What's your counterargument that says that there's something wrong with NOT having PvP in ONE game?
To compete with the other games which offer the same thing. If it doesn't offer what others do, it can't compete.
Seriously, with dozens of MMORPGs out there, what is the big deal about ONE of them -NOT- having PvP?
See above, but also because this ONE is FF and there are those of us who enjoy competition and a real challenge that no AI can provide who ALSO happen to like the FF series.
You neglect to consider people like me who would NOT play FFXIV if it had a significant amount of PvP in it.
Somehow you are neglecting to consider that almost every MMORPG out there that implemented PvP did so with specific PvP servers. So go play on PvE and I'll play on PvP and we'll both be happy? Oh wait but no then we come to...
I could argue it, but you already made the argument for me. Yes, they could just as easily have those people working on PvE things.
You have made yourself clear in that you think your way is the only way and ***** anyone who thinks differently. See, I'm not against PvE because I understand that there are those who have no interest in (or have a borderline paranoia regarding) PvP. So I, for instance, wouldn't ever suggest that any game's devs work only on PvPvE - as is my personal environment preference.
That's the problem with competition: For every person that wins, someone has to lose. For everyone that kills, someone must die.
Hm. You don't happen to be a supporter of "no child left behind", do you?
To the bullet points (which I won't quote) and other similar comments, well, I'm sorry you had such a bad experience with PvP that has apparently left you so scarred that you wish for nobody else to enjoy it and now you have such a low opinion of anyone who participates in it, but really I'm just glad it's not your call. For me, I hope SE figures it out and implements it, or this game is going to get old and tired pretty quickly, no matter how good the PvE content.
