Re: Server future, Opt-out PvP, Neutral Crews
 
Fundamentally, the problem with PvP in a PvE environment is that nobody likes to be victimized. And that's what happens when PvP enthusiasts push it onto PvE'ers who are just trying to have a little fun pillaging.


Precisely.

 
But I can say with certain that people who lose two, three ships from being ambushed start wondering where the fun is. Maybe some stay, work hard to rebuild those ships. But some in this situation will decide that it's not worth their time, and go find something else to play.

And the game loses players.


We do need to be clear here, the real problem isn't PvP itself - it's sinking PvP (which is peculiar to Obsidian) which turns the risk-v-reward curve completely upside down.
