Holy bat excrement.... I'ma agree with TUXs again this morning!
OP, all of your questions are related to faux PvP, not real PvP.
Now, I honestly don't see this game ever having real PvP of any substance. But then again I don't play it for PvP because I knew it was a PvE game when I bought it. There are other games for good PvP, and honestly I don't feel PvE and real PvP coexist very well.
I'm sorry, what's "real PvP"?
Oh, you mean the lag based zerg fest? Yeah, totally skill based lol.
As to your bolded, I'm just gonna sit back and laugh a little harder.
