Old Shool PVPer looking

Hey all, I'm an old school Founder PVPer from the days of Galaxies and SWTOR's Release. Been out of the game for a bit. 3 Guilds merged and jumped over here to SWTOR pre-release. Those guilds in Galaxies were FREE, GANK and JG. We became BOW (Brethren of War) in SWTOR but it's now long gone and PVE just doesn't cut it for me. I am looking to get involved in the score settling PVP world again and want the best server for it as well as the craziest bad ***** (reputable) guild I can find to get involved with. Looking at what is coming down the line here in SWTOR I am seeing some resemblances to the old "Galaxies" PVP style of game play and am very excited about getting involved. My biggest question is where to start looking? Arena's and Instances are ok, but PVP all the time and anywhere, at the drop of a hat, full throttle PVP is where my heart is. Light side preferably just because I have been an IMP killer for so many years. Why stop now?

This game isn't half the game galaxies was (Pre-CUE) but admittedly the pvp style has grown on me a bit. There are some issues but overall it works quite well. The best thing about Galaxies was that PVP was open world all the time. You could be covert or overt. If you were a bad *** you'd be overt all the time. You'd raid bases or faction towns. Fun stuff like that. SWTOR open world pvp is about ganking lowbies or guys doing quests on Oricon. Really gay ****. It's not the same at all.

If a group make a regular habit of being PVP all the time, and dominates, then it is only a matter of time before an opposing faction rally's a group to try and knock them down. It looks like with what is coming in the next expansion we will be fighting for control on a wider scale. ;-) I like the Idea of giving folks a reason to fight back. ;-)

This games PvP has no resemblance of SWG PvP.

Minus BF's & WZ's, maybe...

I'm aware that it is different from Galaxies and will never be galaxies. But what I am reading about the new expansion there will be some new elements added to the Game that resemble the days of old. Housing, strongholds, Planetary control etc. All new things to protect, take, and dominate. No?

I'm interested in seeing more on planetary control. I doubt any pvp dominance-type mechanics will be a deciding factor for anything though.

So there are no PVP guilds that run around beating the snot out of each other just being PVP all the time for fun? For no reason other than to talk smack and brag about who is the best or not?

No, this game is mostly just a single player game that other people also happen to play, and usually those people just ruin your experience because they're idiots.

Sadly, this game is thoroughly in the crapper, and there's no way to play it and afterwards NOT feel like a turd.

See you in the warzones, muppets.

If you mean like around launch when we ran around all day raiding/denying and pissing on each other's legs I haven't seen anything like that in a long time. Same for spontaneous or planned stuff worth mentioning. Might want to check individual server forums too. If there's any semblance of regular OW battling going on and rivalry it'd probably be talked about there.
