The pure PvP servers can be really fun when you a good
tribe around you and the other tribes are of the same-ish tech levels. Unfortunately,
it can also be very bad as my tribe on one of the EU PvP servers found out over
We happened to offend the china based 'alpha' tribe by
interrupting a giga tame that they were doing. We did it because these guys
were griefing absolutely everyone else (including new players) and we could not
afford for them to get a giga.
They paid us back by using a rocket launcher on our base
and destroying it, dumping all our stuff on the floor to rot, etc.. We couldn't
do anything as we had, at best, stone tools and were approx level 15. They were
level 70-80 with a level 240 ptera, metal pikes, flak armour, etc..
Fair enough, we provoked them so they responded and it
was kind of well done.
However, they then proceeded to grief us off of the
server by C4'ing, strafe attacking, Rocket launchering everything we built. All
the time dumping our gear to rot on the floor. And we weren't the only ones
that this was happening to.
As I say: PvP is good, but only some times.
PvE is good for builders and tamers. Sebastion, Jono and
myself started out this way and it was fun. However, you do end up running out
of things to do eventually. This is where PvP comes in :).
