It does if they put a PVE quest or gather part chain quest in a area that auto flags you. This is the same thing they did for HK by forcing people who hate PVP to have to buy from the Jawa vendor in outlaws Den. When I had to go there, I was Ganked by groups of pubs for 6 hours. Never got my part. waited until 3 in the morning and Tat had 9 people on to finally get the part from the vendor, and still got ganked as I was trying to get the heck out of there.

Forced World PVP is not something PVE player like to endure or we would roll on a PVP server.

Oh, and thanks for linking to the place that answered your own question. So much easier that way.
and did you read WHAT I PUT? i said not massive world pvp

This will be open world PvP. You will have to go to Ilum to grind some stuff and will probably meet players of the opposing faction.

One of the Devs, Dallas maybe? had stated that the engine needs come work in order to handle large scale world pvp, so I wouldn't expect that kind of world PvP to show up soon.

The problem with that is that after like a week or two the area was empty again. I guess if its recurring that might be different. I dont know, will wait to see how it plays out

According to the devs of TES: online, that same engine is going to be able to handle hundreds of people in the same area, with more dynamic combat.

Ok... to be fair, I had a completely opposite experience in Outlaws Den. After a few LFG's in chat, a bunch of us gathered at the nearest outpost and went in as a ragtag Ops group. I loved it... I mean, I panned around the camera as we rode in... all of us with different gear, different mounts and one purpose. I swear we needed our own theme music! Lol! Rada by Thomas Bergersen comes to mind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7j1Vn2TgLY

The Imps were waiting for us with their own army and BAM! It was like a scene out of Braveheart, epic! And to be honest it was the first time I had my adrenaline going since... well, since the first time I faced Soa. And the kicker is that I'm not a PvP player. I have never been in a Warzone period.

My point for all of you, especially PVE folks of which I am one, is simply put down your pitch fork and just play the game as it is designed. You may find new ways to play and enjoy the game.

Bravo BW! Yes! A PVE section in the midst of an open world PvP raises the stakes. It takes us PVE'rs out of our comfort zone makes the game exciting. I welcome the overlap of game play and game styles. You adapt... or you fail to realize the games full potential.
