What pvp only guild rolls premades all day? Not that its a crime, just wondering since I don't know of any guild that is 100% pvp.

Having played on a PvP server myself, I can actually say for a fact that the PvP is roughly about the same at 50 as it is on Begeren Colony. That being said, the main difference is the community. The server I played on had a lot of ego and were a particularly mean community. PvP'ers on this server (even the casual ones that nobody seems to like, such as myself) could actually hold their own on a PvP server.

Is it true that you should seek out a PvP server if your main goal is PvP (especially when it comes to guilds)? Probably, but for most of those said guilds that "roll premades all day" they actually aren't on all day and they actually do PvE. For example, ASB runs Ops and they are actually one of the best PvE guilds out there and they are also really good at PvP.

While I can agree that it is absurd to see certain people brag about their PvP stats when they play against casual players, let's not forget that a lot of the stats you see on the forums are actually against the really competitive PvP'ers. To say that guilds that are PvP oriented shouldn't be on this server really shows a lack of tolerance to be quite honest. I'll admit that Monoth does have a point by saying most people that are really into PvP should have gone to a PvP server, but I do have to raise the point that most of these said players actually add to the community of Begeren Colony despite their PvP intensity.

I'm not hear to start arguments, I just figured I get my two cents out since I count as a solely PvP player (yet at the same time a casual player), who didn't roll a PvP server in order to level in peace.

And if it helps at all, I queue solo and in premades of random people that I just happen to shoot invites to.

Oh Siri brings up a good point. You don't get to quest in peace on PvP server if you want some down time. Some people love to do warzones, but the last thing they want is to be ganked when solo questing. These are almost never "fair fights". If someone is in the mood to take that risk they can flag themselves on a PVE server.. where on a PvP server you have no choice. Now some people like that sort of thing. Me, personally, I like down time where I don't have to look over my shoulder every moment if I so choose. I prefer team based objective pvp, not random killing. It's the best of both worlds.

Thanks OG for putting a group together. We were pretty tired so we logged after one game, but hopefully you guys got some good matches against GD.

I'm going to try to organize a casual puggish ranked night sometime this week, but it's really going to depend on my schedule. Grad school is busy XD.

Another successful ranked night with Denikus, ASB, and GD. We look forward to next week, when hopefully all 3 teams will have everyone there (as each was missing at least one). The only problem is that the 3rd team has to wait while the other two play.

Do I hear another competitive team gonna queue up?
