I resent your assumption that players on PvE servers want to PvP, or more specifically world PvP, less than those on PvP servers. I feel it is about the same. For me, the differnece is that I prefer controlled PvP. I don't want to have to deal with people attacking me when I want to level (i leveled 2 chars to 70 on a pvp server, hated it). But, I love halaa and Auchidoun, there great zones when i feel the urge to kick some opposing faction butt.Finnally, I don't necessarily consider lake wintergrasp world pvp but the way we have come to know it. It is a non-instanced battleground.

Resent all you want, but people roll on a PvE server because they don't want to be flagged for PvP all the time. I'm sorry, but the moment you step into Lake Wintergrasp, you'll be flagged.I asked around from all my PvE friends and associates, and they've concurred. PvP activity for World PvP is pretty low, or single-sided, on many PvE servers. That's not a diss on your person or anything, it's just fact.You might be more the exception than the norm on your server. It's not called a PvE server for nothing, after all.

@zachNo, alot of people roll on a PvE server because when they begin the game it is highlighted as a 'Normal' server. To then move oevr to an entirely new realm has the benefit of being able to attack other faction players but the SERIOUS drawback of leaving the friends and guildies you have met on your current server.I would hazard that many PvE players did not choose PvE servers for any reason other than the fact it's highlighted as 'normal' on the creation screen. It's already been said multiple times pvP servers are not significantly harder to level up on. (Search before flame please)

@Seajay - I don't understand what's so hard to believe about my statement that a LOT of PvE players or those who rolled there simply do NOT like to PvE. It's a PvE server.I rolled on a PvE server when I started this game. I leveled 2 toons to 60. Then I realized I wanted to PvP. So I rerolled. Now I have 2 70s on a PvP server. Trust me, if people WANTED PvP badly enough, they'd reroll.Comments on this post from PvE players already prove my point. World PvP on many PvE servers is dead. This isn't a disparaging remark of any sort. It's a FACT. YES, there are PvE players who want to PvP, but a large number of players on PvE servers rolled PvE precisely because they didn't want to PvP. And yeah, there were some people who just didn't know better.

@ Zach 1st comment.Thats the point. If i want to PvP i can go to lake wintergrasp and PvP.World PvP is rare to begin with, i know most of my friends on my home server say World PvP is low, because what most people consider World PvP is Tarren Mill v Southshore. That kind of stuff doesn't happen anymore. Ganking is not considered World PvP IMO
