What makes PVE enjoyable?

For me it's the aspect of playing together for a common goal instead of playing against somebody. While you play with your team mates in PVP too, you also play against the other team.
PVE is pure coop mode and i just prefer this playstyle. Not telling that i don't like to be competitive here and there but not with the goal to win over my rival by defeating him in a direct confrontation. It's more like "come on we both do the same "neutral" thing and see who is better" without one of us clearly loosing.

One of my hobbies is archery, while we have competition there of course, it's not like for example boxing.
For me PVE is like archery, i have a "scripted environment" and it is my own responsibility if i'm good or bad in the end. The other one may be better, but then he is just that, better without lowering or influencing my own effort.
PVP would be boxing then, where i have unpredictable actions of my counterpart and my win is both, my accomplishment as it is the one of my opponent as our actions depend on each other.

I enjoy setpieces. Figuring out how to solve one with only the resources available (H2s with just a tank and a healer companion, H4s with 2 dps and their companions, etc.) is fun for me.

Actually we have someone like that in our guild, he plays a hell of a lot of PvP but also is a member of the progression raid group. It's quite funny watching him bounce around bosses like the Energizer Bunny.

Thing is, he does good DPS but we know he'd be do better if he stopped bouncing. He also misses the occasional critical interrupt due to his bounciness

Have seen posts from obvious pvp players who say operations would be boring and too easy. As I stated in my previous thread you can't compare pvp's difficulty with a storymode operation but with nightmare operation. If that is still too easy and you still think understanding the tactics makes bosses freeloot i assume you never did those operations. There is still a difference in understanding the fight and winning the fight. In basic warlords nm is an easy to understand fight however if the Tu'chuck tank is grabbed by another warlord and gets targeted by Vilus Garr the tank is probably dead. This is a randomfactor in these fights. These factors dont occur in sm operations or they are not leading to a wipe. Bossfights may be scripted but in the higher difficulties there is a random factor. This is similar to pvp. There are strategies against certain classes, you can predict the skills they might use but still there is a random factor. Many pvp players state that pve was too easy and thats why they dont do operations. Thats wrong, its not easy, but its ok if you dont do operations but dont say its too easy.

What I like about PVE is that the players are for the most part a lot more mature than their PVP counterparts. They also have a tendency to help and teach others rather than expect you to be an expert from the get go.

I'm a story player. I play solely for story, for nothing else. The rest is a nice bonus for me.
I agree with this. I signed up for the stories. At first I was very skittish about doing PvP, but now I'm okay with getting rolled or doing the rolling occasionally.

I love the little things in PVE like working to be geared in order to try to solo things like H2's and H4's. I'll still 99.99% of the time group even for H2's just because this is a social game... but I always love the challenge of doing it once in a while.
