I find that PVP vs PVE threads tend to be started by a shitty from one camp or the other.
I don't PvP, it just doesn't entertain me. To me it feels very repetitive, I imagine I'd probably enjoy RBGs although I've never tried - I have enough things to do in this game. I'm certainly not angry at PvP though :P
I certainly wouldn't mind if PvP was removed from the game. To me I'd lose nothing and I'd stop having to witness Blizzards balancing act of 'we feel PvE damage is too low but won't buff it because of PvP' (for example). Suggesting I want it removed because I "don't stand a chance to reach much of anything" seems like a bit of a stretch however. I also have no idea what "alone seems to be absolutely unacceptible(sic)" means.
I don't see people 'sidelining' PvP at all. It honestly sounds like to me that you were schooled in PvE.
In fact, there are numerous 2500 RBG rated players in my guild as well as a few multi-glads... I being one of them. I do enjoy PvE more than PvP for many reasons. I enjoy the teamwork and environment PvE presents, especially 25man.
The vast majority of players have not cleared 16/16 H, or even normal mode for that matter. That quote has no basis and is a major generalization.Vast majority of players despite having played hundreds of Arena matches never made it above 1550, your call.
Wouldn't it be nice if everyone won and lost the same amount of matches as each other?
Honestly, there is a massive crossover between good PVE and PVP players, in that usually they are the same people. Yes there will always be the crowd too casual to care to play properly and struggle in both, but the fact remains of the common good group. There will still be PVE elitists who think they walk on water, just like there will still be PVP gods who think they can smite anything with legs... whatever PVP analogy you have, there is an equal and opposing PVE one to be thrown back at you.
This thread probably won't move anywhere and nor should it, the argument you're proposing is that one aspect of WoW is right and the other is wrong, which will never fly. WoW is what it is because of both aspects put together. While you can carry on about PVE players thinking PVP shouldn't exist and they think they're amazing, there will be someone else carrying on about PVP players thinking PVE shouldn't exist because they got ganked by an unknown running through Outland. Just enjoy what you enjoy and phase out the rest of the white noise. Everyone is allowed to enjoy either aspect or both ultimately.
THIS is what killed WoW. The seperation of pvp players and pve players. In vanilla most everyone did both. Each expansion afterwards more and more people started doing either one or the other until now we have almost completely different gear for pve and pvp with the addition of pvp power. Here's an example of why this is completely retarded. You're running around out in the world in your pve gear killing some mobs, farming or w/e, someone comes along to gank you in pvp gear. You die of course. You rez, put on your pvp gear, and they are gone already b/c of flying mounts/crz. The lame ass people crying about dying too fast in 3v3 and 5v5 arena is what killed wow.
