I know open world pvp in pve is a controversial topic, but I want to know what the community thinks of certain new zones of the map having lore friendly combat zones should people toggle “PvP”? Yes you could argue we have guild arenas and yes we have the wVw and mists that separate PVE players and PVP but could you imagine the role playing for arena areas in most major cities in PVE world? you’re exploring the black Citadel or Hoelbrak and see players doing Arena combat, obtaining winner prizes etc as a gladiator, or you sit on a bench and role play watching players battle it out. This would make sense on these cities especially as the Norn and Char have clearly made arena combat part of their entertainment and culture, perhaps you could even see this in Divinity’s Reach. To prevent chat spam, this could be a separate instance perhaps which has its own chat which regular PVE players wouldn’t see. This wouldnt interfere with PVE players as they wouldnt be forced to do this, it would just be the option for those who want it and I feel it would just add a little bit more life to capital cities in the world. I’m a pve player more than PVP but I still see the way it could be used to further enhance the experience within cities as a whole. That’s just my opinion, what are your thoughts?
