What exactly is optional PvP? Like the priest of discord or something? In my limited experience in the area, most people I've seen do not go PK on normal servers.

optional would be like.. the main object is the server is advancement through pve, but there would be certain zones that are pvp enabled.

Might make a server that is PvE / PvP Optional, have a lot of ideas I'v been thinking up lately.

optional PvP could mean that:

-people could challenge each other to duel
-special zones declared as PvP zones

in other words its not an automatic PvP, and you do not have to participate if you don't want to - kind of like normal WoW server, minus the forceful separation into H and A (stupid idea btw)

All the "blue" servers back in the day were pve/pvp optional. the nameless was.

Default Nice pve/pvp idea

A sick idea would be pve all around, except the only zones with pvp enable are zones with bigger raid bosses. IE SSRA, BOT, Elementals, Kael, VT, VP, ToV etc. This way the higher end guilds wont be like "Man, those guys have been sitting there for 20 hours camping this spawn :("

it will entice more utter chaos, without all of the /ragequit

"Club Zek" is in beta and is going to have dungeons and planes flagged for pvp with a xp bonus as well.

More info about it here - http://clubzek.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7

Full pvp was the best. Rallos was cool till all the gear went to no drop then it was pointless. I played primarily on Vallon, then Sullon. Sullon to me was the ultimate server, full pvp, no safe zones, no level limits, no GMs. Survival of the fittest EQ style. I hope to find something that is close here in the EMU servers, or at least a decent pvp server. No other game has really come close to EQ for the state of paranoia we had back in the day on a pvp server which totally adds a new level to the game.

/who all every 5 seconds to see who is in zone is still burned into me and automatic.

I like the PVE w/ PVP optional. I did play on Rallos, but got tired of the corpse campers. My other prob w/ most of the so called "PVP"ers is that it tends to be P's V P. 2, 3 or more friends ganging up against 1 (usually lower level) person. I am all for 1-on-1 about equal level to test your real fighting skills, but that is not the way it seems to work out.

I've had Enough problems with PK'ers on several other games online. Having the main part being PvE with the PvP being optional in my opinion is the best of all. Having one or more rectums camping a chokepoint JUST to kill other players, usually without warning, is a total game spoiler for me.
