This topic has come up many times before, but I would like to turn some light on it with a more official discussion. We get many requests from players to do PVP a server (many are scared to post on the forums anymore because of how against PVP we have been). EMC took SMP and made something awesome out of it, our unique Town system across integrated servers has pushed us to being THE community for SMP. The question is should we try and do PVP as well?For those that don't know, a PVP server is a server where players kill each other. Hunting down, killing, and raiding other players and their bases is the purpose. In true PVP you don't have protected areas and sometimes you don't have the ability to lock chests.Publicly we (staff and I) have been very much against PVP. The reason for this was we believed it would have a negative impact on our awesome friendly community. That if people had a legitimate way to thieve, grief and kill, it would still result in hurt feelings. We also recognized that PVP has many flaws (camping the safe areas, etc).However over the last few months Jeremy and I have experimented with playing on some PVP servers. I must say, it can result in hurt feelings, but it is also a ton of fun. It is a completely different game and I can see why so many people like it. Of course it is not for everyone So this is sort of a first discussion, do you think EMC should take on PVP? If we did what could we do to make PVP awesome the way we did SMP?One idea I have is a system where you start every month with a certain number of points. When you die you lose a point and if you kill someone else you get one of their points. Then it could have a leaderboard. Perhaps the server would just be a Wilderness (no Town) with more outposts (like 20).Disclaimer to all of this, I am not promising we are doing PVP or not, just wanted to start some discussion on it.
