    I played EVE also, and enjoyed the aspects of 0.0 life. This is different, it would be like there was no 0.5-1.0 systems to re-equip and earn isk. Imagine leaving a station in 1.0 space after doing the tutorial (Tortage), and being ganked. No chance to even get to 0.0, or make isk to get into that mothership.

    Once you leave Tortage, there is no going back.

    Even in WOW, the PVP servers had faction PVP. So there where some rules.

    FFA PVP doesnt work for me. You always have those that do it just to be #$*&#$ (yes, i censored myself).

    If it leads to the kind of meta game, player controlled content and political intrigue (drama) you could have in EvE, I'll gladly pay the price.

    Also, I never actually spent any more time in empire once I got out into 0.0 space. My "safezone" was the area my "guild" controlled, by force.

    Also, I keep hearing this shady bunch of people who came from shadowbane who thought it had the best pvp ever. They always said the game was a horrible low budget crapfest but with such fun pvp and such unfulfilled potential. I want to know what they were talking about, as conan seems to fulfill that potential.

    But we'll see. Maybe I'm just hoping for too much

    Shadowbane did have awesome PvP. It was totally FFA, but instead of random gankage, it was all guild-based conflicts usually culminating in large-scale wars where the opponent got their castle burnt. I remember I once joined a guild with an absolutely massive city because they kept expanding and never got destroyed.

    I hope Conan has that sort of potential. But judging from what I've seen of the game, it'll just be individuals getting raped by other stealthed people for no particular reason.

    If the PvE servers still include lots of PvP in the frontier zones, thats where I'll be.

    Shadowbane just had terrible, terrible gameplay and a complete lack of polish that killed it from the start.

    I played oldschool UO, Shadowbane, Eve Online, and on PVP servers in other games as well. It's not the getting murdered on occasion that bothers me. It is that in this game I can't see all that much reward for dealing with it. There aren't many systems in place (that I know of) to help create the player driven drama and politics of the previous 3 games and few ways to smartly bypass getting ganked while attempting to level up if you'd rather do your best to avoid it. I simply don't think FFA PVP is going to gel well with the rest of the game's mechanics. Please don't misunderstand me though as I do hope I'm wrong about that. I'm just thinking because of my more casual play schedule these days if I can get a similar end game PVP experience on PVE servers but level up in peace then I may just have to take the "carebear" route this time if PVP servers do quickly devolve into a mindless gank-o-rama.

    Odd how PvP, PvP-RP and PvE each have five adherents so far.

    Sounds like we're gonna end up with 18 total mouths.

    I'm pretty sure I'll be picking this game up on the 20th... a friend and I, who are guildmates in WoW and both really burned out on it, want to try Conan. We'll both definately be down for a PvE server in the US.

    So Toxic Pickle +1 for US PvE

    I vote Thog for US PvE (assuming they're all in the jumpstart, which they probably should). It's fun to say. Thooogggg.

    i can guarantee that tyranny and fury will be the most populated pvp servers, with twilight coming in last. the fact that there is almost double the pve servers to pvp is a bit strange, unless some are rp but just not listed as such.

    I'm pretty sure there hasn't been any official word on server names yet. Someone's been calculating based on the polls and stuff though and has made guesses.

    You could also speculate the population of each server based on its poll placement. I don't want to play on a low population server, so something in the middle would be nice. And remember to avoid whichever one the Goons pick.

    Not sure if you already signed up, but they closed the early access sign-ups. Even if you have a code, it won't let you pay the $5 anymore.
