Offer a NA/EU server for NO PVP

169 posts in this topic

Quite a simple idea. With quite a small amount of cost and effort.

 

Offer an NA and EU variance of servers without PVP

The only exceptions to no PVP would be arena is fair game to pvp and do as you need during that time.

And maybe guild vs. Guild if a balance can be found. Perhaps requiring both guilds to declare war. Or some way it doesnt object to everyone. Perhaps make only certain guild earn a no war token for maybe 20m gold coins? And that will last for 7-14 days. Could even make it a cash shop. Idk

 

This is my last ditch effort to try getting my point across that very few people want a pvp game. I gurantee of you remove pvp or create a pvp free server you would see a much greater long term pay out and bigger playerbase. Take ffxiv for example.

Also i believe there was a poll held for ffxiv and 90% of the 200k people that voted said they wouldnt care if the game had pvp or not.

There is much more to the game than pvp. But it doesnt matter if peoplw can limit your progress

I don't think we need to separate the playerbase even more.

I already can't play with half of my friends because they picked a different server...

That locked to a single server thing is very annoying.  Almost every other MMO made allows players to make a character on each server for no extra cost.  It is one of the reasons I have not bought the game ticket thing yet, and may never do so unless things change.

 

A no PvP server would definitely be a good thing, especially for those who have a permanent aversion to PvP from burning out on PvP shooter games like APB:Reloaded.

you can make 4 free charaters per server.

We need a way to transfer characters though. Agreed. 

But we really also NEED a true nonpvp server. It would house a huge playerbase

How playable is the game when avoiding PvP?  Is it possible to advance or are there PvP requirement barriers to leveling?  Also, is it like some of the open PvP games where it is impossible to focus on anything because of being harassed by thousands of idiots shooting everyone they see?

It has been discussed over and over before & ill give my known reply.

Couldn't care less if they add a PvE server as long as it doesn't affect in any way normal servers (Rank's/Marketplace etc) & there ain't PvE>Normal transfers/merges now or anytime in the future.

you cant gurantee that. flat out.

but if they introduce a new server. they need atleast a month to have catch up imo if they ever did

i should be lv 52 or 53.

im at 50.4

ive gained 1200% exp since hitting lv 50 enough to easily hit 53 maybe 54? but im being modest and say 52-53 yet im still 50

and why is this? 

pvp and gear differences.

one luck based.

and one unwanted

UNO should have been the PvE server.

While I'm entirely in favour of seeing more options available to players - I wouldn't go on a PvE server personally - the problem is that if you were to open such a server right now, after the peak population of players has been hit, you will end up seeing three servers populated at two thirds and one healthy PvE server. 

The result would be that in the near future (read a few months down the road), they would have to merge two servers together. If they do that, it needs to be done preferably prior to the introduction of node/siege warfare. Not after. 

Frankly, I don't see it happening. I wish it was a possibility, but I just don't see it.

90% of the people who fought for multiserver are now complaining about it >:]

Not that you were one.
Just having a giggle.

No, just no.

not every game needs to have non pvp server. The game was designed with its pvp in mind and it should stay that way, with constsnt improvements.

Open world pvp works only with plenty of players on the server, making pve servers effectively makes pvp servers die out due to domino effect.

If u don't want to pvp just stay in the city.

 

and I think that ur request won't be heard anyway

What exactly... would you do... on a PvE only server?

There's no raids, no dungeons, and literally no way to interact with another player outside of killing the already stupidly easy mobs. You can't trade, you can't work on anything together. If you take away PvP this game literally becomes a single player game with a chat box, you can't do ANYTHING AT ALL with each other that has any remote meaning.

^ As Aoia said.. I don't see point of having one simply because I wouldn't really have much to do on it.. :/

reading ur last thread i thought u were just overreacting cause of a few ganks, but well thats alot. i can only speak of Jordine(EU) and we ofc do have some pks here but its no where near that (ppl may attampt to pk u 1-2x a day if u play a lot - or they fear my witch!). did u provoke the wrong ppl or is that normal on ur server ?

about pve server:

if people would want to go there, why not. i personally enjoy owpvp, even being pked, so i wouldnt move to such a server. also its much more fun to pk ppl that fight back and enjoy it :)

Until there's a PvE Server and a way to transfer characters there I'll just make sure not to level past lvl 44. More fish for me...

This is exactly what I do. Currently level 21 and have been playing every day since head start. I am ONLY doing crafting skills/node management. 

I would really like a pve server.

Please show your source that very few people want PvP.  Majority of people I come across in game want to PvP, my source for this is all the fights everyone I know gets into on a daily/nightly basis.

You are doing something wrong. I've had one PK instance of PKing occur to me since I hit 45. Granted I chose to turn that 1 PK into multiple as I enjoy a bit of PvP. You have options, go to a different spot, go to a different channel. It is still extremely easy to avoid being PK'd as much as you seem to be.

For the sake of the PvE players, if there is no reasonable way to blend PvE and PvP this is a great option. I would support this.

So, let me get this straight.

You purchased an MMO that's been out for a couple years and that relies heavily on PvP for content and are now asking for them to cater to you because you don't like being ganked.

Yeah.....Ok. I'm going to assume you didn't do your research before picking up BDO. Wait till next Month, or so, when Node wars go live and the PvP is really turned up and happening everywhere.

I will add though, that I'm not against them adding a PvE server for your playstyle. The game does indeed have a lot of PvE content that your kind of player would enjoy. And they're adding more in the future, or so they claim.

A few things you should know though.......first it's not the game's fault you chose a different server than your friends. Bad communication between you and them is not their fault. Secondly, if you're getting ganked too often, switch channels. You'd be surprised how certain guilds that focus on ganking only hang around certain channels. Third, ganking is heavily punished btw, more so than in any other MMO currently out. Lastly, you can't be ganked until you hit 45 at the moment, the Korean servers went a step further and added an option that prevents you from engaging in PvP altogether. But not taking part in node competition will significantly hamper your gameplay.

I wouldn't say a per no pvp server is needed, but more of a flagged only pvp server. You can only be attacked if you flag yourself. And have a rule where you are flagged for 10 mins if you flag yourself, that way you can't turn it off and on willy nilly. 

 

EDIT: This change would also allow for players to engage in pvp when they want to, and keep node wars a thing.
