I would be disappointed but yes I would play FFXIV without PVP.  If I wanted PVP I can just load up WoW with my Death Knight and Rogue (and Warrior if I could get back into the game and actually level him haha)

To have PvP you would have to have like a bad ff side and a good side right? like horde vs alliance? Are all the races in harmony in XIV? Are we talking about PvP say in arena matches ect.. or walking around the world and seeing some1 and killing them?

 

Sorry about my ignorance, I don't play MMORPGs although ffxiv could be my first

No you could do it where everyone is against everyone.  Like Age of Conan for example, you dont have to attack anyone but you have the choice.  Your buddie could attack you if he wanted to lol.  We used to trick people in the pvp areas on that game, id sit inthe middle and my buddie would invis and you could always get some guy/lady runnin by would attack me, then my buddie would pop out and it would be on, that was entertaining for a while.


That's one of the things I hate about PvP. I remember logging on to Lineage II for the first time. 5 secs later I was killed.

heck no thank goodness there is tho. PVP is everythin to me at least y else would i waste hrs leveling up my chracter if I couldn't fight my friends who did the same to see whos the better man.

If I wanted to see who the better man was I'd simply play an FPS online. I have no interest in the epeen crapola that so many seem to think is vital. PvP should always be by choice and never forced. I refused to participate in PvP in WoW and FFXI. I see no reason to continue.

i will definitely still play XIV even if there is no PVP but PVP does make a MMO even more fun. its always fun to take a break from the quests and such and try your skills out against another player. PVP just gives you something different to do in the game so you dont get bored with doing the same old stuff. PVP should only be aloud in a certain area though and not all over the map and the game shouldnt be based around the PVP because it will get boring kind of fast. if any of you have played Knight Online before you know what im talking about. that game is based completely around PVP and its fun for a while but then it gets really boring. you just kill monsters and level up then go PVP and thats it. anyway have they set an actual date for the XIV to be realesed?

Then sometimes you just want to duel weither it's for fun or to shut somebody up.

I do, PvP has little to do with the popularity of WoW. People do like it because of the PvP, but not the majority.

 

WoW is popular because of how casual it is. It is not a hard core MMO. You don't have to spend hours of your life to make progress.

 

In WoW you can get mostly geared in epics by playing by yourself and never once joining a party. You can get fully geared in epics doing just 5-mans. You can get fully epic gear playing by yourself in battlegrounds and loosing every single game (you still get honor and marks). In other words, it's easy as hell and people like that.

 

Make Epic gear raid only, or only if you win in PvP, and then see how many people play WoW....
