Jul 8th 2008 2:08AM I think an important point to make is that people have come to WOW from quite different backgrounds. Competitive people who may have played Counterstrike are drawn to the PVP side and those from a RPG background prefer the PVE/roleplaying.
It always surprises me that so many people are playing quite different games within the same world. Blizzard have done an amazing job to make Atheroth so attractive to so diverse a player base.
Jan 29th 2008 12:53AM Well, it has killed the occasional pvper like me. There is absolutely no point in me entering a battlegrounds anymore. My focus is PVE raids, but I (used to) once a week or so do an AV for fun.
I don't have the time to grind for the pvp gear and do my raiding, I had to choose with my limited time.
