I . . . can't choose.

I like both, despite their flaws.

Actually I find that latency is often the decider in FPS games, as well as blind luck. Oh, and hacks.

RTS is where *real* pvp occurs ^_^.
In fact, your life does flash in front of your eyes before death.
The process is known as "living".

PvE. World PvP is cool, but I don't understand the appeal of warzones. Might as well go play SC2 or something.

World PvP is just gankage and zergs generally.

UO, DAoC, EvE, etc?

For the topic at hand, PvP for me.

Neither UO or DAOC were PvP *focussed*, they just had pvp elements.

Eve...is an exception. It's more of a sandbox, griefing engine (seriously, the things that go on in that game are disgusting) and the gaming equivalent of /b than an actual MMO.

PvE.

I play for story. PvP is, and always has been, an extra boon for all games I've ever played, unless they are 100% pvp. I even play FPS's for story.

Separate the balances. Make the ability have two different statistics: One for PvE, and one for PvP.

That way, PvP doesn't intrude on PvE, and vice-versa.

Tell me if you find a downside, and I'll fix it.
