I've said it before and I will say it now, PVP is very very balanced in WoW. People are always complaining left and right that it is not, but I have never seen any game that has PVP even -close- to having all the abilities and the balance that World of Warcraft has.I never want GC to go, because he actually knows what he is doing. All those people out there that say they know better really don't. Even if they do they only know their own class.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. So many other games' spells and skills are so over the top it can be ridiculous. For me, Aion, Rift and Swtor, are games I wish I could add diminishing returns so I could hit the guy back atleast twice.

SWTOR does have diminishing returns. They also have a PvP system that is elegant in it's own way. There is an entire system that is a diminishing return in its own right, you become immune to all CC, after you've been the target of such abilities, for a short time. Don't mistake me, I love WoW PvP and I agree with the over all assessment of their systems. It's very smooth. SWTOR definitely has some growing to do but I think it has more potential in the long run.

"WoW's PvP has been honed as a separate game style. Its balance and play is beautiful and elegant" Share the crack please. Remember that Iraqi general who said the Americans are not here, or something along those lines. Thats what this site is. I enjoyed WoW, don't know nothing bout SWTOR. But come on! seriously?! I understand that WoW is the hand that feeds But save a little bit of your dignity for when you get married..... jeeeez "Elegant"Is there a little basket where you guys leave your keys and your integrity when you walk in the office?

@redhotsaber I think he was more referring to amount of skill required. I have not played the pvp side of SWTOR but I am very knowledgeable of WoW pvp and I agree with him. You may see 20 guys ganging up one the healer or a big free for all on the flag but what I see is teamwork on both sides and actual strategy. That disc priest that just died? May not have died if your team had been protecting him/her. That holy paladin that will not die? He/she will if your team focus fires, this is coming from a holy paladin that can last quite a long time under the right circumstances. WoW pvp takes skill, and with that skill comes the elegance and beauty that the author was referring to.

Ah, so at least I'm not alone in this realization. It's rather funny and sad at the same time, really. I hate all kinds of PvE, I don't like arena, I don't like battlegrounds and open world doesn't really exist in WoW outside Tol Barad and current content dailies area. Howerver, what WoW has is a perfect combat system. So well done, that any other online games options just pales in comparison. To the point of comparison between computer and Arithmometer.

@Dragoniel so you just..stand around attacking combat dummies all day?

@Luke Know what you may very well be right, but the issue as it stands for me is that those crowd controls seem to be pouring out of everything and everyone around me. Now to make sure I don't seem overly biased here, so far y highest character in Swtor is a lvl 43 sniper. A class that as far as I've seen is big on doing a whole lot of damage but not much else. For further clarification I play marksman, not sure if the other specs can offer more cc.Just that for me there's no end to the mayhem of being stopped dead in your tracks and then just being dead period. Not sure how the DR's work in SwTor and I wouldnt mind if someone filled me in but I've yet to see them take affect.But on the flip side it is good to have a breath of fresh air in a new game, I'll give it that. Huttball is very entertaining and new classes and all that to play around with.Oh and btw my english is horrible sry if I confuse anyone =(.
