Which one do you prefer more (or most of the time):

Open World PvP: Ilum, Outlaw's Den, spontaneous/organized fights, guild fights etc, random ganks etc.

OR

Warzones: Set battles, 8 versus 8 in one of the three instanced warzones.

If you prefer both equally or none at all, don't vote here please. You can also state your reason to prefer whichever.

So: OWPvP or WZ?

Open world PVP or Thidranki style BGs.

I prefer OWPvP. Because there is momentum for surprise, room for unorthodox strategies, the thrill of actually fighting and dying, you can win with less manpower if you outwit the opponent, the environments are more versatile, it wakens up the world outside cities, it's more challenging (in my opinion, because everybody can learn tactics of a specific zone/setting with a lot of practise, whereas in open world you rarely fight in the same setting) and so on.

Open world PvP as it encourages skill moreso than a warzone. In a warzone if you lose...big deal. Open world if you lose, well, you kinda lost that section of the planet. Open world PvP is generally what makes a PvP game shine. Warzones are fun as well, but open world PvP is where it's at in my opinion....as long as the servers can handle it .

Open World is far more exciting, BGs/WZs get old quickly... especially if the game is made to make you grind them.

Here is the think you asked for opinions, yet you wish to shut out the opinions of those that may choose the middle ground.

Well I am going to voice mine and it is the middle.

I am in favor of both just about evenly, maybe warzones a bit higher then OW.

I have played both types of games, that have only OW PvP, and those types of games usually comes down to raid vs raid, and very little small group stuff.

I have also played games that consist of mostly BG style PvP, and that does get repetitive after a while.

But they both have their place, and are both good things to have. With BG style PvP at least the teams are somewhat even (I know many servers are having high lvl differences but I think that will change as of the launch of the game). OW PvP is nice too to give a slightly realistic take on war, and a nice break away from the BG grinds.

As I said, both have their place.

Open world hands down. BGs are like a mini side game.

I look at pvp as a sport and there's no competition in sport when you're outnumbered 2:1. I personally prefer to pvp as a team and the only level ground for that to happen is in WZ so that's what I personally prefer.

I've played plenty of opvp and don't get me wrong I have a blast with it. But when I can gauge my team's skill vs another and come out on top that is the most satisfying feeling for me.

Random open world encounters are fun as hell on smaller scales, but team pvp is where it's at for me.

Anything with objectives and team coordination to execute strategies. Random OW ganking or arena-style deathmatches don't interest me, but either OW areas or WZs with real objectives interest me.

I haven't gotten to Ilum or Outlaw's Den yet, so we'll see about those. I'm having a blast in the WZs so far. I have seen exactly 1 Sith in the OW so far, but I hear the next set of zones (after Tatooine/Alderaan) start having us quest closer together.
