Why do you PvE?

- Is it for loot?
- Is it because you don't know what else to do?
- Is it to be social and doing stuff with your guild?
- Is it because PvP is worse than a Justin Bieber song?
- Are you competative or is it simply just for the love of the game?

I don't understand how guilds can dedicate hours and hours to defeat computer controlled pixels so they can get even more pixels and computer coding with purple color. But that's just me.

What am I missing? Why do you PvE?

It can actually be fun sometimes. I play 90% PvP, but I do enjoy PvE sometimes.

I just don't understand how playing against something where you already know what's gonna happend can be fun. That's the turn off at my end.

For me it's the rush of downing a boss for the first time. The exhilaration I get when I and my teammates perform perfectly and everything coalesces into a win.

Yes, the mechanics are known ahead of time and are fixed, however it's one thing to 'know' what is going to happen. Reacting in the proper way to down a boss is different animal entirely. Just my opinion, and I'm not even a hard core raider. I've only gotten as far as DG HM, but I still get a rush every time we kill them.

Organised teamwork vs puzzle and personal character co-ordination and successfully fulfilling a role in the group.

Loot is somewhat secondary but there does have to be something in PVE or you end up losing interest.

PVP matches on the same maps are always repeatable for amusement as anyone who could sketch out every key point of dust2 could tell you.

its fun the way dancing is fun, the way acting in a theatrical performance is fun, singing in a band is fun. the point is in teamwork and execution and friends or at least people who like each other - having a good time together.

now, I understand the fun of pvp even if its not my preferred pastime, but it provides a very different dynamic from pve.

the thing to take away from this is... people have fun in a variety of ways and just because you personally cannot understand or relate? doesn't make it less fun or invalid to those who do.

for example, I just don't get baseball. oh I understand how the game is played, but it bores me silly, watching even more then tyring to play. and yet... people love it. REALLy love it. so who am I to rain on their parade.

I like teh shineh l00tzors, but I also like the security of knowing that if I apply my skill at pushing buttons on my keyboard to the fullest, I'll almost be guarantied to succeed, something that isn't for sure in PVP. I enjoy both, but PVE is probably my favourite.

Also, lots of shiny cool number coming off the boss. Can't forget that.
