PvP has become a central part of any good MMOG. We canít hide the fact that a large population of MMO gamers strive for excellence. And to prove their worth and resolve, pitting themselves against other players is the way to go. Other gamers search for the holy grail of PvP (Player v.s player) in MMORPG because of its expansive character growth and huge tactical possibilities. What free-to-play MMORPG have the top quality PvP experience? Here we come up with a list and itís pretty much just some personal opinion. (Note: I didnít rank these following games, I just list them.)
Cabal defines their tagline ďRevolution of ActionĒ in their PvP and siege wars. Their expansive skill list open up a lot of strategies during battle, while the flashy skill effects add to the beauty of the battle. This game turns PvP into an explosive art form.
Runes Of Magic
At the moment Runes Of Magic is one the most popular F2P mmos. Open PvP only takes place on PvP servers. The PVP in this game is mainly PK and Siege Wars. The thing with PK mode is that you could turn it on and kill people, not only could you kill people but they also (if they were in the same level range as you) drop loot at a % rate. This was an ideal game for a good PVP rogue ganker. You could hug camps and keep killing people and at times get some nice loot drops.
This game has the makings of a successful game. The turn-based system provides a new level of strategy and tactics during PvP battles. The turn-based strategy of Final Fantasy in active-time mode certainly pales in comparison to Atlanticaís PvP.
Conquer is a one of the earliest 2.5D PvP MMORPGs. The game has been running for almost 8 years and the servers are still consistently full of people playing. Although the graphics canít compete those high end 3D MMOs, it does have some cool pvp features. The game is based on open PvP. Combats are fast-paced and action-packed, very exciting. The winning side will be able to gain some really nice loot drops, while the losing sideís items will have chance to be detained and they have to pay penalty to the winning player to redeem their gear. It gives a good sense of revenge to the game which is a real fun. Besides, the special XP skills and duel class system will give your character extra skills and thatís a good compliment to the game. Conquer offers players a broad range of interactive PvP/ PK platforms, including Arena-based battles and epic GvG (Guild War), and even cross server PK tournaments.
Unlike any other MMORPG, Guild Wars can be a 100% PvP MMORPG, as players can create special ĎPvP charactersí which start at maximum level. Thatís right, players can start off at maximum level with PvP characters. Instead of an open world PvP though, the PvP in guild wars centers around Ďrankedí PvP matches in 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and numerous other setups. With a dual classing system, similar to the system in Runes of Magic, the PvP in Guild Wars is quite exciting.
