    For what it's worth, I'm one of those with no interest at all in pvp in any game. In Entropia, I've had fun a few times with my soc mates and friends with a bit of silly one on one, never more than a spur of the moment joke really, but beyond that, never bothered and just avoid pvp. In other games I've been the same, except when it simply wasn't an option, which would gradually make me lose interest in the rest of the game. I know some folks love it, but to me it always seems to bring out the worst in people (and a lot of immature behavior tbh, griefing other players gives them the adrenaline they don't get irl, or if they can bribe enough people they can feel big with a pk hof they didn't earn-the mechanics of pvp in Entropia is pretty lame anyway). I've also had to deal with lootable types of pvp in other games, but frankly in an RCE like Entropia, lootable pvp of any kind is really not on as far as I'm concerned. I don't mind if Arkadia and other planets do have pvp, as long as it is not a central focus and is an option only, those like me can just avoid it, but must admit it would be nice to see at least one planet dare to be different and just drop it.

    in response to the email inquiry
    i am against pvp on ark
    reason being, the map looks small,
    if it is small like Next Island that will take away from the precious area of regular gaming
    a pvp area where the victim can not be looted is little more than a cage match and fairly pointless
    a tiny pvp area that can be camped by a VTOL high up is rather more like a mouse trap
    if the LA is large like the complete expanse of area on calypso, then a lootable pvp area wont take away from the needed expanse

    When did we get a map of Arkadia? Did I miss something? :S

    EDIT: I agree with people on the fact that PVP areas like the ones in between LAs on Amertha are somewhat pointless.

    However there are benefits to a lootable PVP if there are rare resources in them. I would really like to explore new lootable zones to see what I can find. It's exciting to me :p

    i agree pvp should be kept to seperate zones i am a hunter/ miner and i do venture into those zones at times but if u have too many places pvp then other players who are not into pvp will not go to arkadia at all so there for arkadia will fail and we dont want that to happen as for high ended loots in pvp only u cant do that either as loots have to be equally distributed all over the planet so all can have a chance to loot these as not all player venture into pvp so all playes have the same chances

    Scarcity of a resource is enough to keep a high Markup (see Dunkel particle, Angel scales, hansidian ore, Devil's tail, etc)

    Also, I don't see how is it fair for a miner that has spent thousands of peds sklling up and has not skilled much with weapons to be forced to go into an area where he can be robbed just to find some rare resources that should be available to him because of his higher skills/equipment.

    Lootable PVP should not have a place inside a RCE.

    Totally agree with that

    The whole storyline suggests a united human force surviving on Arkadia, and we might have much better and friendly society if we will help each other

    Vote for NO PVP on Akradia

    If you want to shoot each other go to Calypso and have your fun

    those that wants to be in lootable pvp should skill up and buy gear to defend themselfs... now they dont risk anything but the 5 ped toxic shot and pkers will get a little ammo back that wont cover the costs to kill vehicles (specially pitbulls).
    its funny that ppl wanna go to the risk zones go gain the good stuff but they arent willing to risk anything or even skill up to be able to defend them selfs.

    so because miners dont wanna skill up to defend em selfs its more fair to make it risk less and making the investments of those willing to fight for it worthless ?

    I am a miner and bought gear to defend myself to be in pvp4.


    They did mention "space piracy" on the buzz site so i guess there will be somekind of lootable pvp (wouldnt be piracy if you cant take stuff from em)

    PvP Stadium

    I had a look at the PvP discussions for an area for PvP. Instead of new players easily wondering into a PvP zone, why not have a PvP stadium?

    This stadium would even be big enough to allow vehicle combat. Something similar to one of the forts on Calypso, but once inside the fort it is PvP only. I suggest a stadium as I think the PvP rings are too small.

    Cheers

    I like the idea of a stadium rather than a LA..

    though like alot here i find pvp4 mining is such a buzz so it would be cool to have an area like that up here
