    Yeah but you don't build it up from the ground, you can just level it up somehow, but atm that's now in the game yet (at least not in beta). Guilds can now also claim keeps in rvr zones (just got posted in the forums) which sounds interesting. But still some of the game mechanics are just dull (boring quests, grinding public quests for influence, grinding faction, scenarios, (mini) boss fights). As I said, they still have half a year to get it right and I hope they will. But as it is right now, I'd rather play Conan.

    But as it is and is planned atm, all the rvr and scenarios only build up to the city sieges (in terms of zone control etc) - which means if they dont get the city sieges and boss fights right, the game is going to suck. And don't get me wrong, I don't want WAR to suck. I think that people who have been playing older games with better pvp for a long time will find most of the upcoming games to be disappointing, because noone dares to implement some of the mechanics that made them fun anymore. If there is nothing at stake for loosing or winning, pvp just isn't fun in my opinion. In WAR it's just zone control changing back and forth, in Conan you at least have a city to loose which you build up on your own.

    The only pvp not instanced in WAR is in the RvR zones, where you also have keeps to capture, but atm that is not a lot of fun as well (at least not after the first time) - and the good thing about Conan is that the cities you are fighting can be build by your own guild, which shoud make it a lot more exciting than fighting over some keeps in WAR.

    The actual sieging in WAR is instanced as well, meaning that if there are enough people sieging a city, it may happen that 3 instances open up, in 2 of them you could fail the siege, in 1 you succeed, and based on that it will be determined if the whole siege succeeds or not. The conquered version of the city then is again limited to (at the moment) 48 players per instance, and got tested 2 weeks ago for the first time and it was an utter desaster, both technical and contentwise. Granted, they still have half a year to get it right, and I've really really been looking forward to WAR, but right now after having played both, I'd rather buy Conan.

    Most of WAR's pvp is instanced as well though. At least the high end stuff, city sieges are completely instanced as of now.

    Bruul wrote on Mon, 12 May 2008 22:54 At first I thought pvp servers would be awsome, but from the reading I've done theres lots and lots of pointless ganking such as being killed while picking up or turning in quests and such. Keep in mind that this happened on the open beta event when everyone got their char boosted to lvl 20 and ported to the 3 same starting areas depending on race. This only lasted 1 day so people were just pvp'ing all day as soon as they left the city. Quote: I have no idea in what grade the PVE servers have PVP. If its only in siege, capture the skull and the team slayer games maybe PVP server is the way to go anyways. On PvE server pvp is consentual only, so yes, imho pvp server is the way to go.

    I must say I had very low expectations on this game from what I've read from beta testers, but the open beta was a big surprise for me and I'm enjoying it a lot. It sure has its bugs etc, but overall it's running smooth, the game world is huge - even the starter area - and lots of fun to explore, the combat plays well and end game & pvp sounds promising (can't be worse than WoW pvp anyway). Keep in mind I've only seen a small bit of the game, but so far I'm impressed. I've preordered it and will check it out, play the free month at the very least and see how it develops, hopefully with a lot of other Ginnunga players.
