Though i agree with this statement, I do think there needs to be something to make other get involved as well as some sort of progression based system in place for open world PVP. I enjoy just killing people but people quickly get bored and then me and you have no one to fight except maybe ourselves and that's not so fun.

I know a little OTT but i hope you get my point (we are the minority) and PVP is all about community, the larger it is the more chance you have around getting those 1 on 1 fights.

I laugh every time I hear about "no incentive to world pvp"

What a bunch of softie WoW rerollers =(

PVP is about PVP. You roll out and smash people to win, to make a reputation for yourself and to be the best. PVP is competition.

Go do Warzones if you want money/xp for PVPing. I don't want any handouts for world PVP. It's the only form of pure PVP in SWTOR atm.

I read the last several replies here in this thread and while the challenge of getting a 1v1 is very much exciting in and of itsself, there should be some sort of reward for a kill.

So far people are asking "where's the world pvp?" but when they realize they aren't going to get anything for being successful when they find it, I'm sure alot of them won't be looking for it nearly as much. IMO, that's counter-intuitive to fostering a healty world based pvp environment.

Honestly, who is going to care about finding someone alone in the middle of the desert when nobody is around to see it? There's currently no server specific forums to talk about these fights anyway.

I rolled on a pvp server for a reason. That was to pvp, obviously. While the pure incentive of the thrill of the fight is very much rewarding personally, there NEEDS to be some sort of validation for doing so.
