I like open world pvp in the endgame areas like Ilum and Black Hole where it can escalate into a brawl. But while questing, it seems to me to not ever be fair. "Oh, hey, I just got killed by a guy 5 levels above me. What a surprise....". Especially since I tend to always be a level or two behind the quests I'm doing.

OTOH, I do like sending duel requests to people who are sitting around the same area as me. Because at the end, they just get up and we go our seperate ways.
But its soooo much fun O_O
I actually almost killed someone 10 lvls above me.. almost >_>

Its a distraction during questing since I hate scouring on Tatooine for hours upon hours
Also you dont HAVE to do it Im just surprised I hardly get attacked by anyone

I've been ganked, and done some ganking, but at the end of the day I enjoy open world PVP and think it adds an interesting element to the game.

I personally hate the fact that PVP is mostly limited to WZs on this server, as I'm an old school 8v8 open world (DAoC style) player, but that's what I get for rolling on a PVE server. I wish more folks would flag themselves, but I don't begrudge them for choosing not to.
I actually got attacked twice on Tatooine today when I was on my Marauder, the Commando wiped me and the Sage got wiped by me :P

I dont begrudge people, I just made this thread so people are reminded that theres others out there that enjoy it every now and then

I do feel it makes it more fun while doing running around. But I do get yelled at a few times if I win (I think it has a lot to do with me being a DPS sorc). Other than Mercs (I have been told) we are supposed to be bottom for DPS and anyone should be able to beat us into the ground.

I am loving the new section I run around there flagged and have some great fun, but I do not attack even if they are flagged when they are trying to get the WB, that just seems bad form (I know not very Imp like).

Did not know that one, only know the one where I use force storm on some NPC's and the guy walks into it already flagged for pvp (now flagging me).

I often go around the Republic side of the Black Hole on my juggernaut, doing archaeology while waiting for a WZ to pop. Sometimes I am able to start an all-out war with two groups going at it, or just to have a few skirmishes. Other times nobody flags for me.

Maybe we can have a "stay flagged day" event. For one day, those who are not opposed to PvP will flag everywhere. Then people can have a bit more adventure doing all those dailies, or leveling in contested territories. Say, first Friday of each month or some such?

Well, what would really help is if each of the shared questing planets would have an open world PVP area kind of like smuggler's den but only people within a certain level range may enter. Quite frankly, a huge issue with open world PVP is the fact you get 50s running around ganking lowbies just to piss them off. So, having areas where only lowbies can enter may actually get people doing open world PVP. It would further help to encourage people to go into the area if it was also a means to level. Hate queseting on Hoth, go to the open world area and go PVP and level up. As for lvl 50 open world PVP areas, how about some incentive such as getting credits for killing other players.

The other issue with open world PVP in this game would be the fact you have stealth classes that can stay in stealth as long as they want. They could hang out it in an area where the mobs are green for them and when someone from the opposing factions comes to the area to quest they could come out of stealth and attack that player who really wouldn't stand a chance.
