There will be blood...

One of the hottest topics on the Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventure official forums in recent weeks, has been the request from players for a Roleplay Player vs Environment server. This has sparked a rather unexpected controversy among roleplayers. This week Martuk takes a look at what all the fuss is about in his editorial "RP-PvP and RP-PvE: Why All the Hate?" Find out what the community is saying and what Martuk thinks.

If the abbreviated title isn’t enough to give you a nose bleed the topic may be. One of the hottest topics raging across the Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventure (AoC) official forums is that of the Role-play (RP) Player vs Environment (PvE) types wanting their own server to enjoy a Role-play atmosphere without the fear or worry of having a level 50 come and gank them while they are sight seeing in Hyboria. The loudest opposition to this band of Role-players is not that of another play-style, but that of more Role-players.
