I was just thinking about this topic, especially when I see a fairly vocal amount of mmo players who scream "Open world pvp is the best! Takes most skills and hardcores! BG's are stupid and =/= true pvp". Really I just want people's opinion on open world PvP vs the organized form of BG's. From my experience I have generally 4 types of experiences with open world pvp, #4 being a 1% of the time. 1.) We have a huge zerg and are stomping everyone 2.) They have a huge zerg and are stomping us 3.) We have equal zergs and are having a mexican staring standoff 4.) We have a good open match of world pvp (as said, veerrryyy 1% ish of the time) I love PvP servers, and always roll on them only because I like the variety and the option to PvP against the opposite faction during my leveling process. But for me to log on just to world PvP? Ehhh....not gonna happen. I much moreso enjoy the organized mayhem of a battleground, and I feel it takes much more skill in that environment compared to the "who wins the numbers" game. As a last note, I REALLY hope that Wildstar implements a BG that is just TDM (team death match). I can't describe how many mmo's where I joined a BG and literally just wanted to kill the other team, to hell with the objectives. I imagine this is just a big arena match, but that sounds like a blast to me, especially with a ticketing system! I don't know of any mmo that has a flatout TDM deathmatch, but it's gotta be the easiest BG ever to design! Just make a simple map and your done (for the minimum)!
