People say why do we not do pvp instead? i think the question is why do we do pvp?
We all know why we do it, but i think carebears need a little insight on how awesome pvp is.

Explosions are pretty and adrenaline is a rush like no other.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

You get the exact same explosions in PvE and some people get 0 adrenaline rush out of PvP encounters. Got anything else?

Shooting structures isn't the same if it doesn't have an NC. tag on it.

Going by these SBU's I've shot misl at, it would seem Fountain belongs to NC.

Loyalty is a virtue, participation brings reward.

More importantly, if I don't "participate" when Goonwaffe will be in trouble.

Players are both predictable and unpredictable at the same time.

By this I mean...
- people are creatures of habit and will engage or not engage based on certain criteria and stimuii... the trick is to learn what they are.
- However, rarely are two different engagements the exact same thing (even if the result is).

edit: NPCs also don't get mad.
