The core of a PvP game is the friction between players. If there’s no sharpness to the edge that divides you from them, there is no joy to the victory over them.
I can’t help but wonder if CCP are even remotely aware of us, if they’ve ever spent any time looking at how and where PvP evolved here. I can’t imagine they do or they wouldn’t seem quite so alarmed when the players finally started to act on their belief that CCP is biased and corrupt.
The fact is, like us, in failing to side with the players, they are biased.
DAoC never burned in the bias-fires-of-hell the way we, and now CCP, do. I’d previously thought Sanya got away with it lightly because theirs is a 3-sided war. I stand corrected and tip my hat to her that bit further ;)
