RP-PVP. What does it mean?

Okay, hear me out. I know the technical meaning of it. Role-play + Player vs Player in the open world.

But what I'm scared of mostly, is how many of you actually RP? And aren't here just for PVP. I hate to be caught up in role-play and then suddenly BAM! I get lolkilled out of nowhere. Are there a lot of trollers? I don't play often, but when I do I like to enjoy some role-play and on the side some fierce PVP. This does seem like the server for me. Yet I'm afraid that people view this server as a hardcore pvp server and all bets are off.

Will I get any satisfactory RP?

I can't speak for the server so I don't claim to.

With that said, I have had many rp encounters in the open world without being attacked. And those times when a rp'er was attacked, the player from the other side I was rp'ing with would explain to them that we are rp'ing, and usually I would still be alive and the attacker would apologize.

There are also a number of guilds that respect the rp side of the server as well, and won't intentionally inturrupt someone that is rp'ing.

What it all boils down is that yes you can have some decent rp here, but there is no promise you won't be attacked.

This is pretty much the gist of it. The PvP community here is pretty solid, but they usually don't stray into the Open world unless there is PvP to follow.

I've never been attacked while RPing. That may be pure luck, but at the same time, no one in my Guild has complained about it, so I have to say its not really a big issue. Most people here rolled on Jung Ma for a few reasons, such as they legitimately like RPvP, or perhaps they just wanted a PvP server without the immaturity other servers can have. Generally, people associate RPers with mature, respectful people.

The RP community here is very strong and active. If you simply look for it, you'll find it!

Most of the time its hard to run into anyone to attack or be attacked anyway.

I like both PVP & RP. My wish is that we could actually do RP on the Fleet ON EITHER SIDE. WAY too much idle chatter.

Kinda like how we don't use our wonderful RP channel either. =( Pubs use it sometimes but Imps sure don't.
