So, there's a lot of debate regarding whether or not PVE servers would be welcome in the BDO universe. Let's see where the community opinion falls, shall we? Cast your vote!

Dude absolutely, i mean honestly this game was made for pvp with influence of pve to make silver to buy or make better gear. after gear... then what, you have max everything with the same mobs/bosses to kill. pvp is the bomb diggity

Would these "PvE" servers/channels have consensual PvP  i.e. GvG and the node wars ?

If it means actually improving PvE aspects in general (trade, markets, gathering, crafting, etc.), then sure.

 This option would have devastating effects for everyone.

*Duh*
I mean explain in detail what would happen and what would compel players to use these features. You can't just go around changing game features without thinkin through completely how would they work.
Like for example, my guild gets into a node war, we get the nodes we want and simply toggle off PvP and refuse to fight. What's to stop us from keeping these nodes forever?

I like how all the options are totally reasonable sounding, and the poll does not make the pollster's own opinion super obvious

Exactly. "Okay guys, we'll go to this spot and take everything from this group already there, but keep your PVP off so they can't hurt us. Huehue"

Erm thought they worked by defending said area if no one is there to defend it the attackers just walk up and YOINK its now theirs

Exactly. that would only encourage PvE griefing wich is a bigger plague than PvP. Atleast you can somehow get rid of the bastards in "non-consensual" PvP.

Why always one or the other? Imo a good MMO should have both, at least give people the option. No one really forcing you to do either, right?

Yh that's the current "You want it? Come and get it!" system. But OP wants to change it. So I wanna know how would it work in toggle on/off PvP.

Firstly, I put up the poll to see the numbers. Not to debate how something would be implemented. I don't have the time nor patience to write a detailed system that only a handful of people will ever read or skim over and then immediately jump into flaming whatever the system was. I'll humor the immediacy of your question and simply state it's not difficult to make nodes reset at a particular time every week and if a guild wants them, they must go participate in PVP battle.

While i can see people getting frustrated over this it would kill immersion and it would kill whatever server you guys played on, it would end up dying down really quick.

The game is designed to have limited resources, this isnt some kind of themepark where theres a set amount of instances for everyone to farm their PvE top tier super shiny gear from, this game is designed this way so that pvp can be sparked and people can fight over the zones, i honestly dont understand what your mind set was while going into this game with the attitude that you guys have...You knew the game had open world pvp...There was no official hints or anything at the fact that you might of gotten a PvE server, if you go to Mediah ( just an example ) right now and try to farm somewhere you best be ready to fight over the grinding spot, because everyone is trying to gear up right now.


Its survival of the fittest and those who came prepared have the best chance of getting ahead.

 

 

TL:DR 

Stop making 30 posts about this on a daily basis and open your eyes and try to understand how this game was designed and sit down and think about if this is a game for you or not....Farming is not the only form of progression, Remember that

Ya know, it's very simple. It's very very simple.

We don't need pve servers or channels. We don't need the dumb karma system. Just disable non-consensual pvp in the open world. You can't attack a player who did not elect to participate in pvp.

This will solve all the problems and stop the qq.

imho, as long as they dont correctly change all their crap gear >>>>>>>>>>>> skill.

I would prefer see a " turn off pvp option" ( but as i say several time when speaking about that, it would need to have strict rules like : if you set pvp off you cant turn it back during a whole week and vice versa. Like that ppl will have to really choose, and most player arent going to use that )

 

Not that i fear pvp or whatever else, just the current game setting about "pvp" & gear is ( personal opinion ) dumb, and turn the pvp just pointless.

Why should a node reset automatically if my guild won it? It'd be like saying, "Hey, I know you worked hard to buy that house there, but you see in 2 weeks we'll put it up for auction. if you want to keep it, outbid the competitors."

Will also kill any competetive potential this game would have period.

I wasn't aware we were in college and I was conducting a scientific study. Besides, anyone who reads these forums all ready knows where I stand. Better to be blatant.

So basically you made a poll about options that are not even a possibility. Nice legit numbers m8.
Not to mention you'd be using the same "You want it? Come and get it!" system which is in the game now and is apparently the problem with all you PvE-ers.
Also this

Exactly. "Okay guys, we'll go to this spot and take everything from this group already there, but keep your PVP off so they can't hurt us. Huehue"

Ahh I was more thinking if you went for the node or defended the node PvP was on in that area that being the option you fight or you don't. Not being able to toggle PvP off or on.
