PvP in wow is great simple fun...even if your in pretty dodgy gear if you know how to play your class in a pvp situation.
I leave the PvP to WAR
Well you know...new battlegrounds, vehicles, vehicles don't stack with stats so level doesn't metter, try it
I used to ONLY play PvP. Why, you ask? PvP is dynamic, if you are facing people who are equal matches gear wise, your enemy is not a warlock or a hunter or a mage, your enemy is the complexity and agility of the other persons mind. IMO, PvP will always be more mentally captivating than a scripted boss fight.
I'm just naturally anticonfrontational, I prefer the challenge of trying to puzzle out a complicated boss fight to bashing my head against the wall that is other people. I never really liked fighting games much either, mostly because I didn't see the point of playing them.Why am I fighting this battle? What's in it for me? There's no progress. Even in most non-RPG games that don't have any elements of character progression, defeating this enemy allows me to progress through a zone, and I can't finish the level until I defeat him. In a fighting game, I can fight whoever I want whenever I want and there's no feeling that I'm accomplishing anything.I guess the feeling most people get out of it, "I just beat that other guy" is meaningless to me. Sometimes I'll PvP in WoW for the gear (such as in BC when the arena gloves were best-in-slot for my ret paladin) but I won't do it for its own sake.
I find street fighter harder to play.. at least right now, since my 360 is refusing the acknowledge its existence :(
I have always enjoyed player versus player fighting in World of Warcraft (as an example).True, some players have godly equipment, but every once in a while fate grants me with uber skills.
I hated PvP for the longest time until I got bored of raiding. It took me a while, but eventually I saw the light... The reason I wasn't surviving was because I didn't have enough Resilience. I got myself some PvP gear, and started having FUN. IMO you have to start somewhere... Just like getting into raiding, you have to take your sucky DPS and grind Heroics. For PvP, you have to take your crappy survivability and get into BGs... Get some Ghetto PvP gear and learn to adapt.TL;DR: Don't PvP in PvE gear. You will get raped.
It sounds like Street Fighter IV is doing what Dead or Alive has been doing all along. The more deadly moves in DoA are countering your opponents moves by predicting what they'll do next. Sounds like SF4 might actually be worth looking into (never been much of a fan towards the series). Thanks for the info.
That's why there are spirit rezers in PvP, so you can die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn, die, respawn.......I get knocked down, but I get up again...
I do not have the mental capacity for PvP. The adrenaline rush i get when I PvP is so overwhelming that I shake and can't choose which skill to use next, pretty much making me a free honor kill. I like lore, and downing those impossible bosses is much more fun to me than going head to head with a 12 year old.
ya, im getting to 80 so i dont have to worry about diadvantages anymore and so that i can get decent gear.
CAD comic and why he draw itPersonnaly, i never liked street fighter games... i am bound to MK
I dont get it. To me it doesnt sound like a blog post but more like another whine post about how its so unfair that people who have better gear than you will beat you. And i cant take it serious when you say that stuff about lowbies having a handicap. WELL YES OFCAUSE, THATS HOW LEVELS WORK. jesus, stop doing low lvl BG's (unless you wanna twink) and level up. Then if you dont like PvP, fine dont do it.
