PvP in CO was dead after some time. I think that the biggest part of the SoH community is interessted in PvE. Teaming up, coop-play, wave survival battles etc.
I would not spend time, money and effort into PvP at the beginning (if I had to decide)

Oh and yes you can play as a villain if you are roleplayer. 😎

I just really hope this game doesn't do what so many others have done; let PvP'ers dictate powers. I hate when you have a great build for your PvE, and then enough people say that build is OP for PvP, and your build gets nerfed into the dust when you never even do PvE. That's always been an issue in games that allow both, they always seem to prioritize the opinions of the PvP'ers, often to the detriment of everyone else.

Concur.

for some reason the PvP community seems to take priority. I hate PvP. it just brings bad blood to games.

I do not care for PvP, I prefer PvE. But I wish I could do so as a villain.

Consultant said somewhere - and I don't remember where - that PvP is totally voluntary. If you never want to enter a PvP zone, then you don't have to. There may be location badges in the PvP zone to get, but that would be the only real reason that a hardcore PvE'er would want to enter.

Also, there is no specialty PvP gear. Unless there is a broken powerset at release that makes it impossible to beat someone, everyone will be equal other than skill and rock-paper-scissors AT mismatches.

The game will release Heroes only. Villains will be introduced in a future patch, probably a year+ after release. When villains release there will be PvP & PvP ship levels. If you want to PvP (mememememe) then go into those levels. If not, stay away from them. I like that approach!

Until that time, there will not be villains or PvP. The villains will be using the same ATs and powersets as the heroes.

Question, will there be a mission that sends you to the PVP levels? that was one thing I hated in Star Trek Online. I made my characters mow over PVE enemies.
In City of. a contact would send you to talk to a guard outside of the zone, which I appreciate. 🙂

VERY glad to hear this- Red Team play was how I first got into our lamented predecessor. I avoided the primary-color Disney Dogooders for quite a while! (I defected later).

Can I make my char a villain like in City of Heroes/Villains, or is it limited to just a hero as in Champions Online? :mrgreen:
