Forget what you've heard on the forums. Yeah there's some sad souls on red, but there's actually a lot of pretty normal people too that are super fun to hang with. Owning dirtbags together with the good guys has a sense of comraderie and fun that I have not experienced on blue or green.

Is PVP in EQ balanced? Hell no. It's still a better solution than /list camps and lawyerquesting though. If you want a coveted camp or raid target, you better be willing to fight for it. You're not entitled to pixels just for standing in a line or being the first one there. Arguing in tells with people over what's fair or allowed on green got real old.

It's ironic because people think red is the most toxic community on P99, but I find the pixel lust and self-interest to be far worse on blue/green. Most people there just wanna zerg and collect pixels than learn how to be better at the game. That's not why I play. If I'm not learning or having fun, I just do something else.

PVP is the spice to an otherwise stale dish everyone's had a thousand times. Play on green for the nostalgia then come on red for a real challenge. A new PVP server would be cool but there's still lots of fun to be had on the current one.
This post brings a tear to my eye.

Here is a player that truly understands.

Played Red for like 3 hours today. Never ran into another person. Not one PvP announcement made. Everyone was hiding like cowards with /anon. Pras.

100% thats why any new PVP server is going to be a really great server for -some- amount of time. Whatever the ruleset. I hope it is a thoughtful ruleset that considers the struggles that red1.0 and blue and green have had, but whatever it is, it is going to be a good jolly time for a while.

I really want to play on red 2.0

i just don't have the time to join a family friendly guild on the current red and raid and stuff so i quit- that is liek my biggest reason, so i can queue in lfr,

but if red was new and people were playing again and not automating

and really pvping in unrest and we were defending unrest from the twinks

i would sooo hop on again

eagerly awaiting this announcment BEFORE i die [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
