Like the old Bank robbery for the villains where a Costumed hero who appear to stop you?
There are any number of villain scenarios where you can do something like this.

Has there been any discussion where two players of the same level can do something like this?

Yes we have, just not so much

Yes we have, just not so much publicly. There will be ways to engage 1 vs 1. And with time, including pvp scenarios dressed up to fit within the genre of this game. A bank robbery could be a capture-the-flag-type scenario, it could be guard-the-objective, or a combination of both! These can be 1 on 1 or team on team. Though to be honest, most scenarios would probably lend itself to team on team for greater enjoyment.

We recognize such scenarios are not only wanted by many those who enjoy pvp, but necessary for heaving a healthy pvp community. Having these, and game-designed ladder matches, set up like in-game sporting events, and even having non-combat oriented pvp, like actual sport-like games, from races of all sorts, to other possibilities like a Big Red Ball match.

And less I be negeligent, there will be open pvp as well. Hopefully we can set this up in a way that prevents a level 50 ganking a level 1 ad nauseam, Though there have been those who want to set it up that way, I'm not a proponent of that course. I lean more toward open pvp with certain rails to provide for new entry at any level of the game and growth of the pvp community.

But instead of us saying, here is what is, posit some suggestions on the type of pvp you'd like to see. You never know, there may be types of pvp matches we have missed.

Ganking is a thing that concerns me/ Thats why I have never played PvP.

I will have a choice about PvP won't I? I can do PvE, or just occasionally enter a team event, right?

Nevermind. I just read a Kickstarter announcement about PvP will never be forced on anyone.

My PvP interests are more limited to smaller scenarios like this.
