Title: PVP-RP Option
Post by: Morfiend on February 23, 2011, 10:55:44 AM
For anyone who would like a little more PVP action than the Bat Country server is offering is welcome to come over to the PVP-RP server, Sunrest, and join up with my crew.

Dread Guard (http://www.dreadguard.com/)

We are playing Guardian side.

Currently planning on RP-lite. Several of the f13 people have come over. So, the option is there is anyone is interested.

I'm still seriously torn on this.
Btw, PvP is only non-consensual after lvl 20 right?  <lvl20 you're safe.

Also, I read somewhere that the NPCs are weaker and the wardstones aren't indestructible on PVP servers.  This true?

Lastly, if I punk out and want to go back to PvE... is this possible?

Can you kill the opposing faction's merchants and quest givers?  That and spawn camping would probably turn me off the most.

It might be good if we can have some idea of what the PvP would be like on the PvP servers versus the PvE server options, e.g. battlegrounds, arena or what have you.

As far as I know, its the same as the PVP rulesets in WoW.

So far the Guardian community on Sunrest has been great. Here is a link to the server forum. Sunrest Realm Forum. (http://forums.riftgame.com/forumdisplay.php?73-Sunrest-PvP-RP-US)

I may glom on with you guys for a bit on the PvP server and see how things go.  I usually play PvE, but I may want to change it up a bit.

Problem is, you wont get the feel of it until after lvl 20.  Granted, you can hit lvl 20 in a single long evening.


edit:
phuck it, I'm rollin PvP with you guys this time.  Tbh, the devs admitted the game was really built with PvP in mind and PvE was in truth the 'afterthought.'  So why fight it?
And the potential gameplay with rifts, invasions, npcs, etc. is too much to pass up on an open-pvp server.

Yeah, leveling in this game seems pretty fast, so if anyone ends up not liking a PVP server, its not a huge investment to reroll from level 20-25 or so.

<<Tbh, the devs admitted the game was really built with PvP in mind and PvE was in truth the 'afterthought.' >>

Is it possible for you to dig up the source on this?  I'd love to see it.

I'm torn about the game, mostly because I just don't see any difference at low levels between Rift and a WoW PvP server.  But i the devs honestly did build the game with PvP in mind, that could sway me just because I'll have more optimism regarding its future.  I was thinking it was just going to be another WoW -- mostly a raiding game, with instanced PvP as an add-on.

If pvp becomes too much of a drag for me, I'll just roll a new character on a pve server.  It's not like it's a grindy game to level on.

Meanwhile, I'll be on Sunrest guardian.

Let us know if you want a guild invite. Might be nice to have people to talk to, and group with.

I'm leaning more towards the PVP option, so I'll jump on sunrest. from what I'm reading however seems like it will be impossible to log on anytime soon.

I made Kandystriper, a cleric puri/sent/(will go warden).

But I was told upon entering that my files were corrupted so I'm currently downloading a 15 minute patch.  I'll be back in a few.


I'll be back in TWO HOURS!?! How could they not know how many servers they'd need off the bat, good lord.

Strangely enough this reminds me a lot of WoW's launch. Get disconnected, 2 hour Q etc... there is a hilarious amount of QQ on the official forums about this.

I'll look for you on Sunrest.

My ded-sexy female Malthosian rogue is "Syndarella". (Wasn't feeling particularly creative at moment of choosing a name.)

She's borderline shy/wild, likes flaming rifts, leather pants, long rides by the beach, sticking people with arrows in Black Garden, and cuddly plush sea creature pets.

Just FYI, the queue for Sunrest seems to be holding at around 15 to 20 minutes all morning. Probably will get worse in prime time, but this is way better than yesterdays 5-7 hour queues.

If you type /join F13 that's an easy way to connect in game - our own chat channel.

That's not cross server, is it?

Unfortunately no.

Well, it may eventually change, but right now queue for Sunrest at peak times is regularly running at 2.5 hours.  :uhrr:

This sounds intriguing- the only way I would possibly play it would be on a PvP server, so now you have presented me with a dilemma. I really should get at least one of my WoW characters to 85 before I fuck off though  :awesome_for_real:

So far its been pretty good. Had a few people scared off by the queue, but it seems to be getting less and less every day. I think that in a weekish, it should settle down to a very slight queue. Although I have a feeling its going to be nasty tomorrow for release day.

Yeah, this is the killer for me right now.  So PvE it is.

So far there has been no queue yet today. Yeah, I know its early, but still. I wonder if they upped the server caps, because right now not a single server has a queue. Even Briarcliff which usually has a twice as long queue as any other server.

4.50pm Central time, per http://www.riftgame.com/en/status/index.php (http://www.riftgame.com/en/status/index.php), there are queues on:

Sunrest 122
Seastone 153
Deepstrike 200
Briarcliff 102


It's just going to be this way for a while. At least they moved very quickly on providing server status with queue numbers.

This is because they shut down the servers 3 times today.  At restart, obviously the pop. wont be that high.
(it's down again right now actually)

Made the mistake of starting to read the SA thread about this game...4 hours later I was on Lotham making a Rogue and joining Goon Squad. Don't tell my wife!

I think I joined the wrong guild.  I thought Morfiend was playing under Murv, not Morv.

Oops.

Is Dread Guard looking for members?
