Ok. I know im gonna get flamed and called this and that for this. But hear me out.
I hate pvp servers with a passion. I avoid them like the plague and im a strictly pve/raid player. I like doing stuff out in the world in my own tempo not having to be on guard 24/7 for other players.
So why is this even a issue you say. Play on a pve server you scrublord. Well. I would if i could. The thing is. i have 9 friends im gonna raid with. we are 10 with me. They ALL want to play on a pvp server. Find new friends you say. Well. im suffering from crippling social anxiety. I can easily write on forums like i am doing here now. But talking and playing with players i do not know is simply not happening. I can't even do a regular 5 man on most days with randoms. So you see my issue here. Im getting unwell even talking about it.
Playing on a pvp server is fun enough i guess if you want to play pvp. Which i don't This has happened once before. When firelands was out. They where on a pvp server. I was doing the daily quests in firelands, the zone thingie, not the raid. And i was ganked time after time. as much as 10 players all zerging me. Giving me no other choice then logging off. And i am afraid this will be exactly the same in legion.
Anyways. So i was sitting here thinking. What if they made you able to turn of pvp entirely on a pvp server. You could choose this when you made the character and it couldnt be switched off. Maybe for a fee or whatever.
Only way to do pvp would be battleground and arena like it is on a pve server. But you are not able to attack nor be attacked out in the world.
Would this be a solution you guys could live with ?
I know ofcourse it will never happen. And that this thread is sorta kinda meaningless. But i just wanted to see if anyone else thought this was a good idea.
I have seen this topic many a times before, where people are sorta forced to play on a pvp server because of their friends and the same answer is given everytime.
Get new friends, get a new guild. Don't play on a pvp server you noob. etc.
For me its quite simple. If im getting constantly ganked/killed beyond the point where i cant take it anymore. Im more or less without a raiding team with no possibility to find a new one. They are all sorta pvp whores who love pvp servers. And im the odd one out.
