    By all means run around in an 8man group, take on various sized groups, but don't have a fit when someone joins in the action. It's REALM vs REALM.
    Just because some groups may behave like little crybabies after they've been zerged doesn't mean that there should be no small-scale PvP at all in the open world
    But I guess it would be difficult to find smaller groups for that anyway if there's instanced PvP, so this discussion may be obsolete ^^

    I can imagine seeing a lot more small-scale pvp fights going around the map rather than enormous zergs all the time. (there will be a time and place for those I think)

    Small, yet vital objectives are going to be spread out around the map like mines or stone quarries and caravans delivering supplies.

    Large objectives like castle taking/defending seems like the only place and a reason to have or encourage zergs.

    The world pvp system is going to be 2 weeks long, so it won't be as concentrated like let's say... AION abyss area, where sieges windows were 30mins - 2 hrs on a specific day. That crammed about a thousand people at a very specific spot to fight which resulted in tons of lag and crashes.

    You get together with your band of 20 or so players, and rush into the wide world of RvR... Then suddenly, your screen stops, and your fps drop to 0... Then you're looking up from the ground as 150 (insert other faction) finish rushing through your group of 20 mannequins to move on to the next...

    I hear things got better later, after some client/server improvements, but it always strikes me as funny that camelot pvp is always mentioned in high regard... Maybe they all started playing later than I : )

    DAoC! My first MMO, ever! I miss it so much, it's so nostalgic to think back on.

    Imagine running through a field with 30-40 of your guildmates. You have a skald (Hell ya Midgard!); you're running pretty fast. Then out of nowhere, you all stop with "Zzzzzzzzz"s coming from your heads. Then you stand there and watch as your entire squad is mercilessly picked off, healers first, while you stand there and watch.

    That's RvR.

    Still, DaoC was my first MMO so I'll always have fond memories. The Tuscaren Glacier Raid was awesome.

    You tell your team to go back to WoW cuz obviously they aren't using their self heal and dodging. And trust me, what you said will happen. A LOT.

    Oh, DAOC..

    I truly miss many aspects of this game. Soo many fond memories of killing people in Darkness Falls after another realm would take it over. Since I played a Shadowblade and being able to climb keep walls during RvR getting the quick kill on the healer/CC on the inside just made me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. I also wish many games would take into consideration of the crafting system DAOC had. You didn't have to be max level to become a master crafter all you had to do is have someone that could feed you materials until you mastered your craft (Also being able to break down things you craft to get materials back was epic in my opinion).

    Does anyone know if you will have to level to be able to become a master crafter in GW2? (Example: Like in WoW you have to be level 25 to go beyond 250 in said craft before you can train up.)


    Plus if it wasn't for DAOC I would never have met my wife. Yes, I know nerdy but I don't care.

    The RvR system there was and is still the best type of PVP.

    Still kinda concerned about monster lags if hundreds of people crash into another in GW2. Wonder how they will address that.

    Nah most MMOs switched to puppy furnaces about 3 years ago
    on topic. The lag in DaoC was pretty bad for massive battles however this was...what about 10 years ago? the server technology is so much better I bet lag wont be too much of an issue, looking at WAR (during the short time i played) I saw a 200X200 person battle I had an FPS of 50ish and a lat of 190ish. So I assume It wont be terrible.

    Awww yessss. DaoC was my first Mmo as well, just thinking back on all the relic raids, keep defense and even 8v8 battles I partook in is really nostalgic. Best pvp i've played through all the mmo's on my playlist. WvWvW is the reason why i'm trying out GW2 as well, looks pretty fun!

    I didn't get the memo on DAoC until it was "dead," was playing mostly CCGs and console games around that time. Really wish I had.

    Nevertheless, WvWvW is a big part of why I'm here.

    Not kept much tab on GW2 til now, but I did play DAoC for many years, so this sounds very promising. DAoC was a fantastic game at the time, and have I many fond memories of it. If they can at least capture the essence of that RvR, then I'll be buying this game for sure..
