Item the first: I'm not a PvPer. I've dabbled a little bit in PvP but I can't claim to be good at it or to particularly enjoy it (with the possible exception of my relatively brief stint in WAR).
Item the rest:
When the "U NO U" shouting match starts between PvE and PvP, each side tends to assume that the other is some monolithic entity with only one view of the subject. I'm curious to learn how the world looks from a PvPer's perspective. Broadly put, as far as I've been able to determine, PvPers fall into two categories:
1. They have no particular interest in the likes of gear progression, just give them an even playing field and rated PvP;
2. They are interested in gear progression and want to obtain better gear to become more powerful in PvP.
Following this premise, it occurred to me that the best PvP experience a MMO could provide is to have rated PvP in which everyone is equal as far as gear goes and open world/instanced PvP in which gear does have an impact.
Am I remotely on target with my observations?
What's your ideal PvP offering? What would TPP have to do for you to break out the gold stars for the PvP?
