Cross-server PvP is not in-game and will not be for a long time. BioWare has mentioned they have the systems ready if the time comes to add that, but only will if the ques become extremely long. As of right now? Even at three in the morning, I had ques no longer than five minutes long for a warzone.

Having server pvp only, will make community grow and you will actually recognize players. In one way crossrealm pvp bgs kinda ruined the fun of pvp in wow.

Well.. all I can say is I hope it works out... Right now no one plays PVP.. even though you get XP from it.. thats an easy 5-6k XP every few min just for killing people while your running through Questing...

in Beta i have to say the Que time was about as long as they were yesterday for PVP and over half of the games were Huttball against my own Faction...


This is kinda irritateing... I understand why they didnt do cross server but so far its not working out the way they wanted.
Hope this changes on the 20th...

And I guess servers dying and forced server mergers don't kill a community? Or a 2+:1 ratio between factions?

Agreed. When wow came out with cross server bgs i thought it was going to be awesome, but it just meant pvping against complete strangers all the time. No rivalries, no community.

People stopped working together and stopped trying because there was no need as you would rarely see these people ever again.

Once they added cross server pve groups it got even worse. You basically never played with anyone on your server and the community evaporated.

to some extent, yes. It should be a system that tries for the first X amount of minutes to find a game on your server, then looks cross server. There is very little cross faction rivalry in games that offer this.

I wouldn't mind a system like that. As long as server vs server is a priority.

They better not bring it in. Building rivalries is one of the best parts of pvping. It becomes more of a competition because you hate that SOB and want to just shame his family by how much of an asskicking you give him.
